The Autumn TAG

Hi lovelies,
I am back today with a short post about autumn, which I have to say is my favourite time of the year. What with the beautiful crisp leaves and the cold but sunny days, autumn is a fun transitioning season that doesn't fail to disappoint.

Keep reading my autumn tag to find out my top fall picks...

Ok we're talking coffees - what is your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks, Costa or Cafe Nero etc?
I'm sure this one will be controversial, but I do not drink any hot drinks - that includes tea, coffee and hot chocolate etc. I have never been a fan of them, so I don't really go into coffee shops a lot, even for soft drinks. However, if I do venture into Starbucks I love the Caramel Cream Frappuccino, which is basically milk blended with caramel sauce and ice and then topped with whipped cream. Its super healthy, not haha.

Next up is accessories - what do you opt for, scarfs, boots or gloves?
I love scarfs, boots and gloves. I have to admit that I do not wear booties as much as I would like to, but I do love them. And I am a big gloves hoarder. Honestly, during the colder months you will find two to three pairs in my handbag at any one given time.

Then onto music - what is your favourite songs to listen to during autumn?
My music preference does not really change depending on the season, as I tend to just stick with my usual musical tastes - which can range from pop to hip hop and everything in-between.

What is your favourite perfume during this time of the year?
I own so many perfumes (probably over 30 now) that I do not have a favourite scent. I like to mix and match my perfumes depending on my mood that day. I also like to custom blend my perfumes, by combining two to make my own unique creation haha. If I had to pick one that I am wearing the most currently, it would have to be Stella by Stella McCartney. It is not autumn scented at all, as the main notes are rose and amber, however it makes a great fragrance all year round.

Which candles will you be burning this season?
I know its not Christmas yet, but I have been burning a few of my favourite cosy winter scents by Yankee Candle. My main loves are the Christmas Cookie and Merry Marshmallow. I actually bought so many last year that I still have some left over and this week I have begun burning them again, as during the summer I only like to burn fresh and floral scents.

What do you love most about autumn?
I love the weather. The chilly yet sunny days make the perfect setting for a long walk or for enjoying a day out in the countryside. I also love staying in and watching TV, whilst being all snugly and warm haha. Autumn is a great time to chill out and relax and just generally reflect on the year so far.

Favourite make-up look?
I like dark make-up during fall, as I feel you can carry a more dramatic look through the colder months. Whereas during the summer I prefer less make-up and a more dewy natural look. Currently though I have been loving soft smokey eyes with a plum or berry lip and lots of contouring and highlighting to compliment it.

What are you looking forward to most this year?
Fashion wise it has to be accessorising my outfits with scarfs. My favourites are by Alexander McQueen and Diane Von Furstenberg, I have a lot, but I love them all because they literally go with anything. I do not mind investing in pieces that will always be timeless and classic, yet still look effortlessly chic now. I also bought a beautiful black devore scarf from River Island in January that I still haven't worn yet - so that little baby needs to be worn this year. And then in regards to my life and career, I have a lot of trade shows to attend and getting things sorted and finalised for my business which launches next year. So there will be lots of busy, crazy times ahead.

Lastly ladies, what is your favourite thing about autumn?
