The Autumn Tag

Hey guys! I love doing tags and I love Autumn, so when I saw this cute little tag created by Georgina at Makeup Pixi3 I just had to do it!

For Autumn, what is your...

1.  Favourite thing about it?  I love cosying up in all the clothes that have been stored away over Summer! Boots, warm coats, cosy jumpers and beanies are the best! I love going on walks through the countryside too, the colours are so gorgeous this time of year.

2.  Favourite drink?  I'm not actually a big fan of hot drinks, but I do like relaxing with a mug of hot chocolate before bed some nights, and I've also started to drink green tea for the health benefits. It's seemed to improve my skin a bit and makes me feel generally better and have more energy.

3.  Favourite scent/candle?  I've only really got into scented candles over the past year or so, but at the moment I'm loving a three-wick vanilla candle I bought in Primark, it smells gorgeous and looks nice on my bedside table too!

4.  Best lipstick?  My favourite Autumnal lipstick is Rimmel's Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 107. I love darker colours on my lips in Autumn and this is gorgeous and very wearable!

5.  Go to moisturiser? I have oily skin and even in Winter it doesn't dry out so I use Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel all year round. I do use a richer moisturiser in my evening skincare routine though, at the moment I'm loving Neal's Yard Power Berry Daily Moisture, it smells gorgeous and keeps my skin hydrated and feeling really soft.

6.  Go to colours for the eyes?  I love brown and bronze colours on my eyes in Autumn, I like keeping my eyeshadow simple, especially if I'm wearing a darker lip colour. MUA's Heaven and Earth palette has some gorgeous Autumnal shades, and it's basically all I wear on my eyes throughout this season, and for just £4 it's an amazing bargain!

7.  Favourite music or band/singer to listen to?  Recently I've been absolutely loving Passenger's album 'All The Little Lights', and Jake Bugg's album..erm..'Jake Bugg'. They're both so lovely to relax to in the bath or when you're having a little pamper night!

8.  Favourite outfit to wear (i.e. boots & a scarf combo)? I love wearing skinny jeans, a warm jumper, ankle boots and a thick scarf. I also like wearing skater dresses with leggings and boots and about a hundred layers!

9.  Autumn treat?  (i.e. a new scarf or bag you have your eye on) There's nothing really big that I've got my eye on at the moment, but I'd love to pick up a few items from my recent Autumn wishlist!

10.  Favourite place to be?  Either curled up in front of the fire reading or watching a film, or relaxing in the bath with some scented candles, relaxing music playing and a face mask on! I love going out for walks through the woods as well, I'm probably outside more this season than I am in Summer!
