The Autumn Tag

I've been wanting to have a go at doing a tag post for a while, as I love doing these types of lists, but as I'm not enormously well known in the blogger community yet unfortunately my chance hadn't come around. Then I spotted this post by the lovely Bex on her blog Futures. (and she herself was tagged by Shona at freshbeautyxox) and thought it would be the perfect way to get into tagged posts, especially as autumn is fully kicking into gear! The Autumn tag was created by Georgina from Makeup-Pixi3, and I've found it a great way to get into tagged posts. So without further ado, here are my answers!

For Autumn, what is your...

1.  Favourite thing about it? Everything! The cold crispness in the air, clear nights with the stars out, wamr coats, scarves, hats, boots, funky tights, jumpers, kicking through piles of leaves, hot drinks, Halloween, Bonfire Night, city centres all lit up in the evenings, watching box sets, Strictly being back on the telly, and my birthday in October :)

2.  Favourite drink? Hot chocolate, especially the Whittard ones -ginger or orange are particular favourites on a chilly night. I also get ridiculously excited about the Starbucks Christmas drinks (they come out in November, that counts as autumn, right?) and will try all the new flavours, but I'll always have a soft spot for the Gingerbread Latte.

3.  Favourite scent/candle? I love the smoky smell of burnt-out fires the morning after - if someone could bottle that and make it into a perfume then I'd be very happy! However I'm not a big candle person so don't really have any preferences on that front.

4.  Best lipstick? I like a good red for autumn so probably something like Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple or Kate Moss For Rimmel Lasting Finish in 01, with my trusty MAC Ruby Woo for special occasions.

5.  Go to moisturiser? Normally whatever I'm using at the time - so right now that's Garnier Moisture Match in the morning and Body Shop Vitamin E Cream at night - but if my skin's feeling particularly rough I'll use Steam Cream as it's incredibly nourishing but not too heavy.

6.  Go to colours for the eyes? I've been very into browns for my eyes so will probably stick to that, with the occasional smoky eye going on as well.

7.  Favourite music or band/singer to listen to? I change my mind on this as often as my socks so it's impossible to pick just one! That said I'm listening to lots of She & Him at the moment so that'll probably feature quite heavily.
 8.  Favourite outfit to wear (i.e. boots & a scarf combo)? Funky jumper, denim skirt, colourful tights, flat brown boots, hat and chunky scarf. Love it!

9.  Autumn treat? Hotel Chocolat dark chocolate salted caramels. They are my absolute favourite chocolates and as I'm on a beauty spending ban at the moment, they'll do as a treat for cold weekend evenings when I want to indulge myself a bit.

10.  Favourite place to be? My mum and dad's house - they have a proper wood-burning stove and going up there always brings back happy memories of curling up on the couch with a roaring fire, watching DVDs and drinking tea by the bucketload. Perfect.

Like Bex, I'm not going to tag anyone in particular, but I'd love to read your answers if you want to complete the tag :)
Do you like doing tagged posts? Do you have any particular favourites out of the tagged posts you've done? And what are you most looking forward to about autumn? Let me know in the comments and have a great day!
