The Autumn Tag

I saw this tag over on Beyond the Velvet and thought it was so cute. Although not specifically nominated, Leah and Rachel nominated everyone reading theirs so I'm jumping in with my own!
1. Coffee - What's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks or any other coffee shop?
Anyone that knows me knows I'm a sucker for coffee. I normally stick to a Skinny Caramel Macchiato throughout the year (iced for summer), but I do like to test out all the new seasonal drinks when they come out. At Uni last year it wasn't unlikely for me to get a Starbucks before a lecture and a Costa for the walk home! The toffee nut lattes and creme brûlée lattes were both amazing!

2. Accessories - What do you opt for, scarf, boots or gloves?
I'm definitely more boots than scarves of gloves. I love my Topshop Chelsea Boots and Miss Selfridge Biker(ish) boots throughout Autumn and Winter. I normally keep reminding myself that I should get a pair of gloves all through the colder months and never get round to it. Also, I'm a walk and text kinda girl, so I'm not sure gloves are too practical for me!

3. Music - What's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
I'm not sure my music taste really changes from season to season? Although towards the end of Autumn, I do like to stick on a Christmas playlist to get me in the festive spirit!

4. Perfume - What's your favourite scent for this time of year?
I love YSL Cinema all year, every year! Jimmy Choo Flash is also a favourite of mine, but maybe a bit floral for an Autumn scent.

5. Candles - What scents will you be burning this season? 

I love all things sweet and vanilla. I've got a Yankee Candle in Vanilla Satin and the Jelly Bean Toasted Marshmallow burning at the moment. I do want some more Autumn/Winter scents though - any recommendations??

6. What do you love best about Autumn?
I love the idea of cold, crisp mornings, but in reality - not so much. I do love coming in from the cold and getting all cosy with a film in front of the fire. I love Autumn fashion and colours. And I don't care how old you are, everyone loves walking on fallen leaves!

7. Favourite make up look?

I like that you can get away heavier makeup looks once summer is over. Heavily winged eyeliner is a favourite. Also, I'm trying to ease my way into a darker, berry lip. I've never pulled it off but want to desperately!

8. What are you looking forward to the most in the Autumn?

I don't know if this means generally or specifically? I'm looking forward to going to the Harry Potter studios this week! I'm also looking forward to my graduation and grad ball in November so I can see all my uni friends (YAY!) More generally, I'm looking forward to onesies, yummy food and getting excited about Christmas!

There we go! I'm a proper newbie blog so I don't have anyone to tag. Like Beyond the Velvet I'm also going to invite anyone reading this to join in and do the tag!

P.s. Although it's deleted all my previous comments on all my posts (annoying!!) you can now find me at (YAY)!


  1. I'm with you on the whole walking on fallen leaves thing, the sound they make when walked on is so satisfying to me!

  2. I love it - I have to stop myself from running through them like a kid when people are looking haha xx

  3. This is so cute! There is a Christmas Tag going round that I've read a load of, you're right, they say anyone who wants to get involved, so should totally do it! You're totally right about the fire though, a real log burning fire, there is nothing better in the winter!

  4. Sorry, just saw this! I can't wait to do the Christmas tag too, I'll tag myself, haha! Even better is roasting chestnuts in the fire, I can't wait! x


I love reading all your comments, thank you!
