The Autumn Tag

Saturday, 28 September 2013

Hello Ladies! Today is the last of my posting everyday week and I’m not too sure if it is something I want to keep up or not. My traffic has increased and I have enjoyed spending more time on my blog but I feel that some posts just got lost in between others so I think for now I’m going to go back to posting about 3 times a week as that seemed to work well with my work schedule and you lovely readers seemed to like it a bit more, but I’d love some suggestions!

I have been tagged a couple of times to do this post and now that Autumn is well and truly here, I thought it was about time I did the tag! I love Autumn for its cosy nights in and big wooly jumpers so this should be a fun tag to do! I'd love to know what your answers to the questions were so please leave your link to the Autumn tag in the comments! 

1. What is your favourite thing about Autumn?

I love being able to throw on a big wooly jumper and Uggs although I know some people hate them! I love being warm and cosy and I'm quite a cold person so being able to throw on lots of layers and warm clothes is great. Also, Autumn means that Halloween and Christmas are coming and I love to have things to look forward to and plan for, If I don't have anything to plan or look forward to I get bored very easily and it's easy to feel down. 

2. Favourite Autumn Drink?

I really hate Tea and Coffee and most warm drinks apart from Hot Chocolate. So I'd have to say hot chocolate, but really, I stick with my squash and fruit juice all year round. Boring I know, but you can't beat good old squash in my eyes, I doubt I'll ever grow out of it and I do get in a bad mood when I run out of it! 

3. Favourite Scent/Candle?

At the moment I have a Vanilla and Coconut Creme one from Primark which I actually love. It's so sweet without being sickly and just smells cosy. I also love the Lily Flame candles in Dolly Rocker and Fairy Dust as they aren't too summery and just smell of warmth to me. I don't really like Autumn and Christmas candles as I hate the spell of Cinnamon and Spice, which is the generic Christmas Candle smell. 

4. Best Autumn Lipstick?

Once again, I'm going to be boring with this one. I usually stick with a nude or pink lip all year round as I don't suit the Berry Lip trend or red lipstick, the only difference is, in winter I don't get out my coral lipsticks as much and stash away some of the brighter colours. At the moment I'm loving MAC Creme Cup but I really want to get my hands on Please Me or YSL Lingerie Pink. 

5. Go To Moisturiser in Autumn?

I have very dry skin which is also prone to breakouts so I tend to stick with two moisturisers all year round. I love to use Elemis Fresh Skin moisturiser (the Stay Clear one) as it keeps my break outs under control while also being moisturising enough. However, when my skin gets really dry during the winter I love to use my Clinique Moisture Surge as it's lovely and light but also gives you great moisturisation. 

6. Go To Autumn Eye Colour?

I love a good neutral eye but this Autumn I've been darkening up my neutral eye by banishing the lighter gold tones and opting for a darker brown shimmery neutral eye. I've also been adding in some purple and berry colours (not to the neutral eye!) to make my make up look more Autumn appropriate. I really want to get the Sleek Vintage Romance palette and MAC Cranberry for this years Autumn eye looks. 

7. Favourite Band/Artist to listen to?

This is a tricky one for me as I don't really have a favourite band or musician and my music taste is quite eclectic. I adore One Direction and I don't care who knows it but recently I've been loving The 1975, I've had their song 'Girls' on repeat all day!

8. Favourite Outfit To Wear?

I love to wear jeans, a knitted jumper and boots during the winter, or I'll opt for a skater skirt, thick tights boots and a pretty top if I want to look a bit more girly but it really does depend on where I'm going and how I feel about myself on the day. 

9. Autumn Treat?

My wishlist is bigger than me at the moment but as I said earlier, I really want to get my hands on a new MAC lipstick and eyeshadow and a Sleek eyeshadow palette as I don't currently own any of them (shame on me I know!). 

10. Favourite Place To Be?

One word. Bed. I love my bed, especially when it's cold outside. I love getting cosy in bed with a hot chocolate and a scented candle on the go, and sticking on a heart warming christmassy film like The Holiday.
