The Autumn TAG

14 April 2015


So I found this Tag on another blog (Emily Likes Makeup) and thought it seemed like a fun idea. This Tag was originally created by Makeup Pixi3, who has tagged anyone that's a blogger to do it too! So definitely check those two out! 

Anyway, here's the Autumn TAG! By the way, if you're reading this, then I Tag YOU to do the Autumn TAG next! xx

For Autumn, what is your...

1.  Favourite thing about it?  It's a tie between the fact that I can break out the baggy knit jumpers and knee-high socks, and the way the leaves fall from the trees and scatter the grounds. This is actually my very first Autumn being able to experience this in person!!! In Brisbane, it's basically a constant cycle of Summer/Spring/Summer/Spring, meaning we'd miss out on all of the perks of the cooler seasons! So as lame as it is, I'm super excited as the Autumn leaves fall this year!

2.  Favourite drink?  I'm still not over the fact that this isn't available here in Australia (it's criminal!), but my absolute favourite drink for Autumn is the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks. To. Die. For. But as far as my favourite available drink for Autumn, I'd have to say it's a Caramel or Hazelnut Latte!

3.  Favourite scent/candle?  It's a tie between my Vanilla Caramel Candle from Peter Alexander, or my Reeces Peanut Butter Cup scented Candle. I love sweet, creamy scents over Autumn/Winter!

4.  Best lipstick?  I have only tried this once before but I'm planning to order three beautiful autumn/winter shades from Lime Crime's Velvetine collection - Red Velvet (tried & loved) and Wicked are lovely red shades, while Cashmere is a beautiful, soft pink/cashmere shade. They go on liquid, but dry in a beautiful matte that literally makes your lips look like velvet. 

5.  Go to moisturiser?  I really can't choose just one moisturiser for even a month, let alone an entire season! It changes all the time, however as a general rule I like something very hydrating for the cooler months because my skin gets dry quite easily when it's too cold.

6.  Go to colours for the eyes?  I like to stick to natural shades, so creams, golds, and browns - perfect for Autumn imho.

7.  Favourite music or band/singer to listen to?  I don't really have any specific seasonal favourite or general favourites haha, but I guess I enjoy softer music or like, less upbeat? I'm loving Style (T Swift), Take Me To Church (Hozier), Jealous (Nick Jonas), Don't Tell Em (Jeremiah), and Earned It (The Weeknd), right now!

8.  Favourite outfit to wear (i.e. boots & a scarf combo)?  I don't have a favourite outfit in particular, but rather favourite looks. Baggy sweaters, high-waist jeans, and skirts or dresses with stockings - all paired with cute matching boots! Did I mention I'm obsessed with boots?

9.  Autumn treat (i.e. a new scarf or bag you have your eye on)?  I'm really loving this chunky plaid scarf that's at Cotton On at the moment, so I'm hoping to grab that one sometime soon!

10.  Favourite place to be?  Either rugged up in bed with my cat on one side and some food on the other, or sitting in the back corner of a cosy little cafe enjoying a hot drink and some yummy cafe food!

    1. I think a lot of people do, they're classic, simple & perfect for the season :)! Haha thankyou, they're my babies :3 xx

  2. It's so weird when bloggers from the other side of the world write about autumn, while I'm all bundled up in scarves desperately waiting for the spring weather to come :D

  3. These are lovely photos! HEHE we are actually in Autumn here in South Africa while everyone else is in Spring


  4. Lovely photos! I to thought the fact we don't have Starbucks was criminal until I stumbled across two in Sydney as I walked around! (I know I was jumping up and down too). I think the main reason we don't have it as much is because we're more into our independent cafe's in Ausralia instead of big franchises or chains but hey a girl needs a pumpkin spice latte every now and then, and the independent cafes don't cut it I'm afraid!
