The Autumn Tag

The lovely Chloe from tagged me in's 'Autumn Tag'. I haven't done a tag in ages and thought the questions looked super fun. Don't forget to comment down below and tell me if you like posts like this! 

For Autumn, what is your...

1) Favourite thing about it?
Autumn is my favourite season, for so many reasons. My favourite coffee at Starbucks comes out - Salted Caramel Mocha. It taste and smells like Christmas. Autumn fashion has always been my favourite. I love jackets - they're my favourite item of clothing. I've just ordered two more from and i'm on the hunt for a black fur coat. November is also my favourite month, there is Bonfire Night (my favourite night of the year) and Winter Wonderland (a London fair-type thing) opens and it's just a wonderful month. There is also halloween in October, I just love Autumn! 

2) Favourite drink?
I just mentioned it above but I love the Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha. It's only available for around a month of the year and I cannot get enough. 

3) Favourite scent/candle?
The smell of fire! There is a reason Bonfire Night is my favourite night of the year, and that's because of the smell. The smell of burning leaves is like an aphrodisiac to me - haha! My favourite candle is definitely Yankee Candle's Christmas Cookie but I do love all their scents for A/W.

4) Favourite lipstick?
I'm currently loving my Topshop Lipstick in Beguiled (a post about it here). It's a vampy dark pink but I'm hoping to pick up Covergirl's Euphoria when I am in New York - looks lovely. 

5) Go to moisturiser?
I'm currently loving my Origin's High Potency Night-A-Mins cream for night but I will always love my Nivea one. 

6) Go to shades for your eyes?
Probably golds and browns, champagnes for my inner corner. I'm always a neutral girl! The most I do is silver instead of gold and browns, and do more of a gunmetal smokey eye but for day times I tend to stick to my MUA Undress Me Too palette or my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. 
7) Favourite music/artist to listen to?
For autumn I always love listening to Ellie Goulding and James Blake. During the colder months my music usually slows down from house beats and dub-step drops to more mellow tunes. I love Ellie so much, and James Blake. I currently really love Jay Z's Magna Carta album, but I did also love that during the summer. My music taste doesn't really vary throughout the months but I do find me playing some songs more. I am currently loving Passanger's All The Little Lights album. 

8) Favourite outfit to wear?
I love black jeans, my favourites are currently my Topshop Joni Jeans. They fit like the overpriced American Apparel ones but nearly half the price. So black jeans, with a black top usually, like a crop tee. My one is from Forever 21, but again the American Apparel ones are 'the original' ones - you must know what I'm talking about. Every teenagers current obsession? I'm not huge on the trend but the tight crop tops that if they were longer would just be tight plain tees? So one of those, in black, worn off the shoulder usually with my Gogo Philips gold chain necklace with a large flannel shirt worn over top or wrapped round my waist. My newest one is from Jack Wills and is a red and green cheque. With a pair of black converse or cutout boots (I am yet to buy). 

9) Autumn Treat (e.g a new bag, jacket, shoes)
I've just splurged on two new coats, in the post now! But I am planning a shoe splurge. I really want a pair of the Office cut out boots with gold buckles. I also really want a pair of the classic Vagabonds. Lastly i'm desperate for the limited edition Vans in Silver Snakeskin - they're so cute and paired with black jeans and a black top I think would be adorable. I also really want a fur coat. If anyone has seen any on the market you have to comment! I saw an OK one in H&M but as it was quite cheap the fur wasn't soft nor was it a good length.

I found this post so much fun to write! Thanks Chloe for tagging me! I tag all of you but special shoutouts too:

  4. Oh, I love Autumn! I love the cold and the thought of the lovely hot drinks. Though I never seem to actually like the taste, the idea is nice at least! X

    1. I always absorb the hype of hot drinks but always prefer cold! Even though the salted caramel mocha i've mentioned so many times in this post is my favourite hot drink i've realised it's more in my head than real life! haha thanks for the comment xo
