Hey, everyone! It's Kate from My So Called Life.
The nights are drawing in, it's officially cosy jumper weather and the glittery eyeshadow make-up looks are out in full force, which can only mean one thing... Autumn is officially here. I don't know why, but this year I've just been loving Autumn! I recently stumbled across an Autumn Tag, so figured it was only fitting to share it with you all.
1. OK, we're talking coffee's - what's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?
I don't actually go to any of these places! Talk about falling at the first hurdle. I'm all about just a plain, ordinary coffee or a hot chocolate though.
2. Accessories - what do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?
Boots and Snoods. I don't seem to suit any form of hats (sob) and find gloves to annoying, plus you can easily transform any outfit with some boots and a snood! H&M always have a great selection of both, as do Bershka and Stradivarius.
3. Music - what's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
I have such a wide taste in music that it doesn't really tend to change much throughtout the year. I have noticed that I've been listening to slightly slower songs with a deeper meaning recently though, whether that's a coincidence or not, I don't know. I've also had Beyoncé - Haunted on repeat!
4. Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year?
DKNY - Be Delicious. It's probably my favourite perfume in the entire world, and I love the body lotion that matches too!
5. Candles - what scents will you be burning this season?
I am partial to a Jo Malone candle, though I just can't bring myself to buy them. Paying 70€ for something that could last just three weeks just doesn't work when you're on a strict student budget.
6. What do you love most about Autumn?
Autumn is made for cosy nights in, whether it be with friends or a partner, snacking, watching films and late night chats. Curling up in front of an open fire is option, and something I do every night. Fluffy socks and pyjamas are also a must. I am currently missing out on the leaves changing colour though. Living in Spain, they tend to be green during this time of the year and then go a hideous brown colour in the Summer.
7. Favourite makeup look?
Dark lips and smoky eyes, a look loved by most, I'm sure. I'm loving the darker colours in the NARS Audacious collection but can't bring myself to spend that much on a lipstick so, for now at least, I'll stick to my trusty Sephora Rouge Cream lipstick in the shade Crush.
8. What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
Is it really bad that the think I'm looking forward to most is a TV show? I'm A Celebrity returned last week, so I'm just looking forward to curling up in front of the first with some hot chocolate and watching that. If you've ever watched the show, you'll understand why. Other than that, I'm looking forward to the lead up to December and how excited everyone is getting about Christmas.
Tag - you're it!
