The past three days have been freezing so I think that it’s well and truly time to do this tag. This one was created by Makeup-Pixi3.com (original post here) and shared all over – us bloggers do seem to love autumn!
1. Favourite thing about autumn?
The weather turning colder gets everyone in the cosying up mood. Chunky knit jumpers in the shops, extra throws brought out of the cupboards, fairy lights switched on in pubs. Bliss. Plus, it’s one step closer to Christmas! Yeah, I said it.
2. Favourite drink?
I don’t drink tea or coffee and I rarely drink hot chocolate (seemingly everyone else’s favourite) so I’m going to have to be honest and pick something boozy. WHISKY BASED COCKTAIL FOR ME PLEASE! Mmmm an Old Fashioned would do nicely.
3. Favourite scent/candle?
Something cosy like vanilla, marshmallowy, spicyness. Currently loving Bath and Body Works’ Marshmallow Fireside and good old Vanilla scented tea lights from IKEA.
4. Best lipstick?
I think MUA’s shade 11 (great name there). It’s a darker nude colour and not too drying. I also wear lashings of lip balm – any I have to hand.
5. Go to moisturiser?
Soap and Glory’s The Righteous Butter or a Body Butter from The Body Shop.
6. Go to colours for the eyes?
Bronze, bronze and more bronze. I’m thinking about branching out slightly and buying either Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Pomegranate or Bourjois’ new Prune Nocturne and adding some cranberry tones in there.
7. Favourite music or band/singer to listen to?
Don’t think I listen to anything different or special. I’ve been re-loving The Jam recently, will that do? Oh and I’m going to see the Madness musical Our House on Tuesday so probably them too. Let’s say 70s era Brit rock and pop.
8. Favourite outfit to wear (i.e. boots and a scarf combo)?
I don’t care as long as I can wear my beloved yellow Cambridge Satchel. Luckily this looks pretty sweet with flat boots, my purple duffel coat and a bobble hat. I do love a good bobble hat.
9. Autumn treat?
This autumn I’ll be buying lots of house stuff as I want it all sorted before Christmas. Need new sofas, rugs and finishing touches.
10. Favourite place to be?
At home on the sofa/in bed or in the cinema, either way, cosied up with a film.
I tag you! Yes, you! Leave me a link to your Autumn Tag post.
P.S. Here’s a slightly out of focus picture of a squirrel. Another favourite thing about Autumn is helping these guys stock up for the winter!
