TAG: The Autumn Tag

I haven’t done a TAG post in ages, but while looking through some blogs on Bloglovin (You can follow me here), I came across the beautiful Fee at Makeup Savvy had done the Autumn TAG, so I thought I would do it too – its different to the normal tags after all.

autumn trees

 1. Favourite thing about Autumn?
Ditching all the Summer things. Strange right? I love getting out the warmer clothes, losing the Summer makeup and wearing my hair down again (As its almost always up in Summer). The changes in colours too of the trees…. Lots of inspiration.
caramel macchiato
2. Favourite drink
At present it would be a Soya (I don’t have dairy) Caramel Macchiato, but I am also partial to a spiced pumpkin latte if out. At home I drink tea, coffee and a selection of herbal teas. I seem to drink a lot of camomile and green tea.
Vanilla and spice
3. Favourite scent/candle
As soon as it gets colder, its all about the spice. Vanilla with spice or orange spice. It reminds me of Christmas, not that I want it here now. But I associate it with a homely, family time.
Smashbox lipstain in Sangria and Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss in 107
4. Best lipstick?
Something deep red or burgundy. I currently wear either Kate Moss 107 from Rimmel or Smashbox Lipstain in Sangria.
5. Go to moisturiser?
When the weather changes and my skin needs something extra I don’t think you can go wrong with Oilatum Natural Repair Facial Cream.
Clarins Single Eye Shadow in Mocha Mousse
6. Go to colours for the eyes?
I wear a heavier liner and mascara in Autumn and Winter and sometimes will only emphasise my crease, this is usually with a matt neutral brown shade. I use a Clarins one called Mocha Mousse.
iphone playlist
7. Favourite music or band/singer to listen to?
Summer is jazz, where as Autumn is general. I have a more relaxed music feel in autumn I guess. I still listen to all my random play lists on my iphone, but the Summer mixes tend to disappear.
8. Favourite outfit to wear (i.e. boots & a scarf combo)?
Skinny jeans, grandad top, scarf (Usually a printed one, the wool doesn’t come out till its colder). Boots will usually be my biker ones and a leather biker jacket too. I sometimes will add a beanie or skull cap to that licensable as it leads into Winter.
Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Intensive Mask
9. Autumn treat?
Hair masks. Your hair has just gotten over the sun and damage from that. It now has to cope with wind, rain and whatever you throw at it. I think Autumn is the best time to change your hair mask, get something more intensive and care for your hair a little more.
10. Favourite place to be?
As sad as it sounds, home. My favourite time of day is the evening. When everyone is home from school, work whatever and all in their pjs. Probably bathed and ready for bed. Its a chill out time. Looking out my large patio window and seeing the sky get darker, it just makes you appreciate how much nice it is indoor wrapped up in the warm.
I TAG anyone who wants to do this Autumn Tag post, make sure to leave me a comment if you do so I can see yours. Happy Autumn/Fall!
Lots of Love,
