The Autumn Tag

It's that wonderful time of the year again.

The leaves are falling and make a lovely crunch when you walk through them. It's getting darker quicker, there is a chill in the air (which I actually enjoy) so its definitely scarf weather.

It's creeping closer to my birthday ... then my anniversary ... then Halloween. Autumn is the best time of year.

So imagine how delighted I was when reading through fellow bloggers posts to find an Autumn Tag. The lovely Toni over on ClarkeCouture left an open tag to anyone who wanted to join in ... so here's my contribution :)

Ok, we're talking coffee's - what's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?
I love the caramel latte from Costa but I drink it year round. I did like the Orange hot chocolate they done last year around this time. Here's hoping it's doing the rounds again. I tend to go to Coffee Trader a lot with my Granny during the week and I love their White Mocha. It's the perfect pick me up in the cold weather.

Accessories - What do you opt for? Boots, Scarves or gloves?
Pretty much all of the above. I have my New Rock boots which are perfect for keeping my feet warm and dry (plus they are really comfy) and I love my big scarves. I have a basket we keep at the front door for us to put our hats, scarves and gloves in when we come in so we're always prepared for the wild weather that Scotland seems to create.

Music - what's your favourite music to listen to in autumn?
I tend to listen to the Nightmare before Christmas soundtrack a lot more in the autumn into winter. That's the only thing really that changes. I tend to listen to the same music all year round.

Perfume - Whats your favourite scent in the autumn?
I wear Hugo Boss Deep Red in the autumn/winter months. I think it just smells amazing. It lasts a while too.

Candles - what will you be burning this season?
Oooh Yankee candles are my favourite and I have the Candy Corn waiting to go :) I'm not a big fan of the Christmas scents like cinnamon or spiced orange. I prefer the fruity ones. I have the Candy Corn in the living room and the Coconut & mandarins in the bedroom.

What do you love most about Autumn?
I love the feeling in the air. It's like everything starts to slow down. It's like the world is going into a kinda hibernation. It's nice. The weather gets colder which means snuggling up in bed is the perfect way to spend the night. Even the food is comforting. Stews and soup like your granny used to make. I love the colours - Brown's, Red's and Orange's. And the celebrations! ... I'm Halloween daft :)

Favourite make-up look
I'm a fan of the smokey eye - red lip look. I love the whole Dita Von Tease thing. I do tend to favour the smokey eye using Brown's though. Can be toned down a bit for the day look and looks great with a nude lip (or ever a slick of lip balm).

What are you looking forward to most about Autumn?
Honestly, the snuggling up in bed with the electric blanket on and my gorgeous beardy man. Plus the good TV starts in Autumn like Supernatural, Sons of Anarchy and Walking Dead.

I love my bearded wonder to bits :)

I'd also like to keep the tag open to anyone who wants to join in. I love these kinda things cause it's a great way to get to know people.

If you take part please leave the link to your page in the comments so I can come have a look :)
