I'm not one to do a tag post really anymore but since Autumn is my favourite season I thought it would be wrong not to!
What's your favourite seasonal drink?
Hazelnut hot chocolate from Costa! I really don't enjoy anything spiced or coffee so the obvious Pumpkin Spiced Latte is the opposite of what I'd be ordering. I love adding syrups to hot chocolate though, such as hazelnut, caramel, vanilla etc. The Christmas drinks from Costa are a million times better than a normal Autumn drink in my opinion.
Accessories - what do you opt for, scarves, boots or gloves?
I am definitely a scarf kinda gal. This time of year my favourite scarf is my thin blue tartan scarf from Primark last year. It's just the right thickness to keep me warm and isn't too thick to be worn in Winter. I do love wearing boots though - whether they are long riding boots or little ankle chelsea boots. I probably wear my scarf more though since I'm still wearing flats at the moment since it isn't cold enough to be wearing boots everyday.
Music - what's your favourite music to listen to?
If you give me the remote to stick a music channel on I will always put Kerrang on. I love rock music whether it be traditional rock or pop-rock. Rock is my true favourite but all year round you can catch me listening to the top 40 and anything from the 1950's onwards. I'm quite open minded about music and definitely can't pick one genre usually let alone to listen to for one season.
Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year?
My ultimate faves have to be Escada - Joyful and Marc Jacobs - Daisy Dream. I wear these all year round as floral/fresh scents smell too nice to stick in a cupboard for half the year. I think men's aftershave can be more Autumnal than women's perfume to be honest.
Candles - what scents will you be burning this season?
Well last year I had two Yankee Candles burning constantly - Snowflake Cookie & Vanilla Cupcake. I love the PartyLite Hocus Pocus candle (especially the design since it fits in with Halloween!) and think I will eventually take a trip to my local Yankee Candle store to see what new scents they have out. I have my eye on Fireside Treats but I'll definitely have to smell it first!
What do you love most about Autumn?
There are a lot of birthdays for me in October (including mine and Andy's) so I love celebrating those. Then obviously we have Halloween which I think is my favourite holiday since I enjoy dressing up and doing Special FX makeup on people. Aside from that I love the weather as I can stick a jacket or light coat over my outfit and be warm enough.We get a fair amount of rain in Liverpool though so that's not ideal, especially when there are wet leaves everywhere. I love how the trees look and the fashion trends in AW tend to be the best too.
Favourite makeup looks?
I am in love with the 70's trend right now and love matching this and Autumnal colours into my makeup. A good gold-bronze smokey eye with nude lips looks gorgeous, as well as bright eyes with a berry or vampy red lip. I can't choose just a few!
What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
Everything I've mentioned above! I love the celebrations of birthdays, Halloween and Bonfire Night as well as whipping the hot chocolates out. I prefer to cover up my body instead of flaunt it so Autumn is the perfect season for a bit of layering.
