Autumn Tag

As you may be able to tell I have a bit of a soft spot for autumn so when I saw Natalie at 'Your Almost Alice' (here: http://youralmostalice.blogspot.co.uk/) had done this tag I decided to do it too. This tag was originally created by Georgina at 'Makeup Pixi3' (here:  http://www.makeup-pixi3.com/). I hope you enjoy this post and if you would like to see more tags let me know. 

Questions:
For Autumn, what is your...
1. Favourite thing about it?
2. Favourite drink?
3. Favourite scent/candle?
4. Best lipstick?
5. Go to moisturiser?
6. Go to colours for the eyes?
7. Favourite music or band/singer to listen to?
8. Favourite outfit to wear (i.e. boots & a scarf combo)?
9. Autumn treat? (i.e. a new scarf or bag you have your eye on)

10. Favourite place to be? 

For Autumn, what is your...

1. Favourite thing about it?

I love autumn fashion an awful lot - all the tartan, jewel tones, snugly knits, jeans, cosy scarves and everything else. There is something beautiful in waking up and facing a frosty, misty morning with a knitted scarf wrapped around your neck, a pair of brogues to crunch through the crispy leaves and a big jumper to snuggle into.



2. Favourite drink?

I have recently discovered a recipe by Macbarbie07 (you can find the recipe here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CYhGfPZVvI) for Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate which is amazing but terribly addictive so that is definitely my fave drink - I will be uploading a recipe post soon.



3. Favourite scent/candle?

Being ever the worrier I don't tend to use candles often as I am worried that they will catch everything else on fire as well. But when I was in a card shop I was smelling the autumn range by Yankee Candle and I really love the Hot Cider scent.



4. Best lipstick?

I love red lips for autumn so I tend to use my Rose Bud lipstick by Accessorize as it is a lovely red-ish pink but is not too over the top.



5. Go to moisturiser?

I love the Simple moisturiser range and I especially love their light version - I did a review ages ago which you can read if you want - here: http://theemeralddove21.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/simple-light-moisturiser-review.html




6. Go to colours for the eyes?

I don't tend to use much product on my eyes but if I did I would definitely go for a smokey eye or a gold colours.



7. Favourite music or band/singer to listen to?

As ever I love listening to King Charles and his adorable song Ivory Road (you can listen to it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGuau204JZY) and I also love listening to Taylor Swift - I especially love Enchanted and Everything Has Changed as they are such adorable songs with lovely lyrics.



8. Favourite outfit to wear (i.e. boots & a scarf combo)?

My typical autumn outfit is jumper with a shirt collar out, jeans and brogues but I also love wearing dresses with a leather jacket or coat and thick tights (Primark Super Cosy Tights - whoo!) and brogues or boots.



9. Autumn treat? (i.e. a new scarf or bag you have your eye on)

I have my eyes on a tartan coat which I will never be able to afford from Miss Selfridge (you can find the link on my wishlist: http://theemeralddove21.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/autumn-wishlist.html). The colours are beautiful and I just love it.



10. Favourite place to be? 

In autumn I love being at home wearing my PJs with my hair tied up under a throw watching TV with the fire on eating Galaxy caramel chocolate with a cup of tea.
