The Autumn Tag

 I have seen the Autumn Tag knocking around quite a few blogs but after seeing Gemma from Lipsticks and Lashes blog I decided to take the plunge and do it myself.

 1.  Ok we're talking coffee's - what's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?  I'm not much of a coffee drinker, in fact I hate the stuff but from time to time I'll treat myself to a coffee cooler, mocha, latte or cappuccino. My seasonal staple drink, however, is the Black Forrest Hot Chocolate from Costa. One that I urge you all to try, once it starts getting served that is.

2.  Accessories - what do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves? Scarf, boots, gloves, yes, I go all out. I like the snow and want it to snow, but I hate being cold and wrap up as warm as possible.

Music - what's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn? I don't neccessarily choose my favourite artists by season I just have a selected few that I can't get enough of; Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, George Ezra and any Frozen song, because they're constantly in my head due to my 3 year old daughter having them on repeat!

 Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year? Again, I just wear what I like and don't tend to pick scent by season. I'm obsessed with Benefit Gina and Katy Perry's Killer Queen right now. 

Candles - what scents will you be burning this season? Honestly, I'm just enjoying burning any candle I have. It all goes with my love of being comfortable and cosy, that involves candles, pj's, hot chocolate, a blanket and a good movie. 

What do you love most about Autumn? I love the countdown to Christmas, the shopping beginning. Layering. Crunchy Autumn leaves on the ground and most importantly bonfire night and lots of toffee. 

Favourite makeup look? I like to mix it up a bit when it comes to my makeup look all year round, so it doesn't tend to change to much. I'm not one for sporting a vampy lipstick but my nails may get the occasional vampy nail polish. 

What are you looking forward to most in Autumn? Apart from Christmas shopping and getting it out the way, the only thing I'm actually looking forward to is my holiday. I still have a week of Summer and that suits me just fine!

Have you done the Autumn tag? If you have I'd love to see yours. If not I tag anyone who reads this to do so.
