22 September, 2014 The Autumn Tag
The lovely Alina from Beauty With Charm recently tagged me to write The Autumn Tag, a really fun lifestyle and beauty questionnaire all about my essentials for the season. I love Beauty With Charm, Alina’s blog is full of brilliant makeup and skincare recommendations – you can read her version of The Autumn Tag here. Without further a do, here are the questions…
1) Ok we’re talking coffee – what’s your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks or another coffee shop?
I’m weird in that I drink Frappucinos all year round. You will find me in the middle of a snowstorm drinking a Tall Coffee Light (double blended of course). I don’t have a favourite seasonal drink, but I do love the smell of Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
2) Accessories – what do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?
I never wear gloves, but I do love a good scarf. Anything floaty and light is perfect. In terms of boots, I’ve been wearing the Topshop ALLSORTS Chelsea Boots for months now. They’re seasonally appropriate but were fab in the summer too, when I wanted to add some black (obviously my favourite colour) to an outfit. The heel is 4″ which is perfect for me, and the wide wedge means they’re comfortable and easy to wear all day. They are £45. (Buy here).
3) Music – what’s your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
I am currently loving Jessie Ware’s songs ‘Tough Love’ and ‘Want Your Feeling’, and ‘Swim’ by Fickle Friends has been my summer song that I’m taking over to Autumn (and basically for the rest of time).
4) Perfume – what’s your favourite scent for this time of year?
Narciso Rodriguez For Her Eau De Parfum is the perfect Autumn scent. It’s musky, woody, floral and sweet. It lasts all day and I rarely need to re-apply it (although I often do, because it smells so delicious). View here.
5) Candles – what scents will you be burning this season?
I’m not a huge fan of sweet scented candles, and I prefer refreshing, citrus-based scents. I always have a candle by Shearer Candles burning in my bedroom, and at the moment I’m loving the Persian Lime Scent. Buy here for £7.
6) What do you love most about Autumn?
The thing I love most about Autumn is being in London – the weather hasn’t plummeted to freezing conditions yet, the days are still fairly long, and the run up to Christmas and December (my favourite holiday season and birthday month) has begun! You can probably tell I’m a planner…
7) Favourite makeup look?
My favourite makeup look for Autumn is subtle gold and copper tones on my eyes, naturally peachy cheeks and rosy lips. I’ve been wearing the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Bronze Moon (read my full review here and buy here for £28) all over the lid paired with lashings of mascara, Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Blush in Nude Peach (£19, buy here), and the Lipstick Queen Jean Queen (£18, buy here) for an easy everyday look, and MAC’s Capricious lipstick (£15.50, buy here) for a more intense berry/rose pop of colour.
8) What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
I’m looking forward to starting my MA course in early October, loads of friends have recently moved to London so I’m excited to plan fun things with them, and improving and working on my blog!
