The Autumn Tag 2013

I've spotted the autumn tag doing the blogging rounds recently, but Hollie's written post made me make the effort to join in! I've always been a Spring/Summer girl, but I seem to be looking forward to the A/W months this time round, digging out the chunky knits, fur coats and boots and drinking plentifuls of hot chocolate! So here's my tag :)

In terms of Autumn what is your...

Favourite thing about it? I'm not a massive fan of Autumn, like I said, so my favourite thing would have to be being able to wear my chunky knitwear and boots again... Plus, the fact that it's getting closer to my birthday and Christmas!

Favourite Drink? Non alcoholic, I tend to drink more cups of tea, and mint hot chocolate! Alcoholic, I usually drink a glass of port and lemonade during Autumn/Winter.

Favourite scent/candle? I don't think my choice of scent or candle changes much, but I do have a Yankee Candle called Snow In Love which I will start using again soon.

Best lipsticks? At the moment, I'm loving Illamasqua's Magnetism (if I've got plenty of lip balm on!) or GOSH's Bourgogne - I'm a fan of a slightly dark lip :)

Go to moisturiser? I can't stop using Liz Earle's Skin Repair Moisturiser - I haven't found a better moisturiser than this yet!

Go to colour for the eyes? It all depends on what I'm wearing, obviously, but my eyes go slightly more smoky during Autumn. I tend to play around with a lot more gold shades too.

Favourite Band/singer or music to listen to? I don't think I can narrow it down for a seasonal thing. The Killers will always be my favourite no matter what time of year it is. I guess if I had to choose one for Autumn, it would be Arctic Monkeys this year as I'm seeing them in Birmingham at the end of the month!

Favourite outfit to wear? I like to try and keep my outfits simple and comfortable... A big chunky knit, a nice pair of leggings (velvet or patterned), boots and my Zara trench coat!

Autumn Treat? It used to be a trip to Costa for a Frosted Mint Hot Chocolate, but then I realised you can actually buy them any time of year (duh)! But doing that, along with buying a slice of cake or caramel shortbread to go with it, whilst people watching reminds me of Autumn when I lived in Sheffield and Bath, and gets me in the mood for the winter months.

Favourite place to be? I'm not much of an outdoorsy person when it's cold, so I'd much prefer to be at home next to the fire with a drink and just chilling out. Or like I said above, at Costa people watching! It's a bit too early to list the Christmas Market on here, else that would be #1 on the list!
