The Autumn Tag

I've seen this tag around a lot on my Bloglovin feed and I've really enjoyed reading them, so I put this on my "to do" list. Since I can't do my scheduled Birchbox post today (mine appears to be lost in the post!) I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to slip this tag post in.

1. Ok, we're talking coffees - what's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?
I'm not really the biggest fan of the seasonal drinks for autumn/winter. I love the smell of them but not really the taste. I did really enjoy the Costa white hot chocolate last year - but I have to buy it in small, any more and it starts to get a little sickly!

2. Accessories - what do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?
I love wearing boots in the autumn, I've bought a load of new pairs this year, it's quite worrying how many I have now! I also love a good scarf, but gloves just irritate me.

3. Music - what's your favourite music to listen to in autumn?
My musical tastes don't really change that much throughout the year. I'm sure I've said this in a post before, but I'm really enjoying listening Ed Sheeran at the moment. His album has pretty much been constantly playing in my car since it was released around four months ago....that's a lot of Ed! My favourite songs are Thinking Out Loud & Afire Love. Once we get to November time I like to whack out the festive tunes too!

4. Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year?
Again, I really don't change up my perfumes that much and I don't have too many autumnal scents. My favourite ever perfume is Marc Jacobs Daisy, but I've been getting more wear out of my Chanel Coco Mademoiselle recently.

5. Candles - what scents will you be burning this season?
Yankee Candle do the best autumn/winter candles in my opinion. I really love Cranberry Ice and Vanilla Chai for the autumn.

6. What do you love most about Autumn?
The fashion. I much prefer autumn clothes to summer. I love wrapping up in a nice snuggly jumper, a pair of jeans and some ankle boots. I've gone a bit crazy with new fashion pieces for my autumn/winter wardrobe this year, so I can't wait to try out different looks.

7. Favourite makeup look?
I love wearing a really simple eye look with a deep berry or red lip. I bought MAC's Rebel a few months ago and have been desperate for the colder weather to start wearing it. I also really like MAC's Plumful for a slightly more subtle lip colour.

8. What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
Is this really bad, but every year it has to be starting my Christmas shopping?! I like to start quite early (yes, I've started already!) so that I feel nice and prepared, and also I beat the December rush in town. Me and my mother-in-law have a trip to the Christmas shop in Stratford-Upon-Avon planned soon. I've also got a trip to Wembley coming up at the end of this month which I'm really looking forward to.
