I recently read this tag post on Emily’s blog and as she tagged everyone, I thought I’d answer the questions. I think autumn is probably my favourite season – you’ll soon find out why!
Coffee - What's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks or any other coffee shop?
I love gingerbread lattes, or chai lattes. I only really go for coffee at work or occasionally if I’m in town at the weekend, so a packet of Nescafe gingerbread lattes are a must. The limited edition millionaire shortbread ones are lush, too!
Accessories - What do you opt for scarf, boots or gloves?
Definitely boots – I’m not a glove or mitten wearer (they used to get in the way when I was at Barnet) and I really can’t cope with scarves, they’re just too annoying. I love to buy a new pair of boots in October ready for the colder months. I love my Uggs as well!
Music - What's your favourite music to listen to during autumn?
I don’t listen to anything in particular, although I may start listening to Christmas songs a little early. Currently, the debut album by The XX is playing in my car – the deluxe version has a couple of great covers!
Perfume - What's your favourite scent for this time of the year?
Well I normally say goodbye to all those lovely Escada summer scents and at the moment, I’m wearing Marc Jacobs’ Lola. I need to buy a new perfume, so please let me know your favourite A/W fragrances.
Candles - What scents will you be burning this season?
Well you can’t beat a Yankee and I’ve stocked up on votives for the season. I’m currently burning Paradise Spice: a combination of banana, coconut, cinnamon and cloves. It’s quite intense. I’m really looking forward to burning Cinnamon Stick and Vanilla Chai though – and my all-time fave is Salted Caramel.
What do you love the most about autumn?
There’s not one thing I could single out, I love so much about autumn. I love the colourful leaves that are crisp under foot – you can’t beat an autumn walk in wellies. I love to snuggle up in woolly socks and jumpers with a good book or film. Hot drinks like spiced lattes or hot chocolate with marshmallows. Lush baths with candles are also a must.
Favourite make up look?
I don’t really have a favourite look – my makeup only changes during the summer. I do love darker shades of eye makeup and lipstick – and of course nail polish.
What are you looking forward to the most in autumn?
Other than the things I love most (mentioned above), I love having nights in with the family, playing board games. Costa dates are always fun. And I have to mention going out for afternoon tea with friends – I’m hopefully going twice in the next few weeks.
