/ autumnal reminiscing

Technically autumn begins on 22nd September this year. That's supposedly when things suddenly change into orange hues, oxblood lips and everyone sits sipping steaming mugs of tea whilst staring out their windows..

Currently, I'm feeling very autumnal (I love that word - don't you?). It's my favourite season, the jumpers and fresh morning air, so you'll probably see me constantly smiling for the next few months.

This tag is from makeup-pixi3 and you have to check our her blog.

 1. Favourite thing about it? Wow. I don't really have a singular favourite aspect of this season, I just enjoy the cosy evenings with candles and filling food, how snuggled everyone looks in their winter coats and the long park walks in boots. 

2. Favourite drink? Hot chocolate. White, dark or milk I just love that stuff. It's not exactly good for the waistline - but with all that early morning shivering it's definitely deserved. 

3. Favourite scent/candle? If you read my 'house smells and things' post you'll know I love all scents and candles, however this winter I'm leaning towards the horrifically simple but elegant vanilla range of smells. I know it's not particularly 'autumn' themed, but the Yankee Candle Vanilla Cupcake is just yummy!

4. Best lipstick? Gah. I hate this question. I wear all my lipsticks all the time so I'll go with a colour instead. I'm still living in past trends and really enjoy wearing oxblood colours on my lips. I'm going to be taking a look at Topshop's colours in the next few weeks so will hopefully find something appropriate!

5. Go to moisturiser? My skin gets a little dry during the colder weather, so I've been sticking with Nivea and Vaseline moisturisers with shea butter and aloe. For my face Simple light hydrating moisturiser is doing the trick!

6. Go to colours for the eyes? Hmmm, I've recently toned down my colour palette - I'm loving neutrals and navy. I like creamy blendable ones!

7. Favourite music or band/singer to listen to? This is another unfair question. If you've seen my iPod you'll know why, I simply don't have a favourite. Currently though, I have been tending to listen to Passenger and Childish Gambino in a playlist I made. Yeah. I like it.

8. Favourite outfit to wear (i.e. boots and scarf combo)? I love my thick tights, patterned scarves and skirts. You'll never see me in trousers.

9. Autumn treat? Grabbing a coffee with my boyf! We use the colder weather as an excuse to make copious mugs of tea and coffee to drink whilst watching TV in bed. I know it's naughty and we should be studying but it's just too cold!

10. Favourite place to be? Home! I miss my 'home-home' more in the colder weather, but that's only because we have really comfy sofas and blankets (nothing to do with the central heating, huge bath, vast array of food...). I get round this at uni by knocking around in my onesie collection... (I have more than one) and cooking up comfort food. Goodbye figure.
