The Autumn Tag!

So this week i started back Uni for my honours year, let me tell you, there is so much work! Much more than i was expecting, until now i’ve not found university that challenging but this year is going to kick my butt! I still like to upload at least once a week but honestly, this week i’ve struggled with lack of time! I found this post over on Emily Mae and it was so cute i just couldn’t resist taking a quick break to do this.

1. Ok we’re talking coffee’s – what’s your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?

Decaf, skinny, caramel late from Costa is my favourite! This time of year i allow myself to indulge in hot chocolate’s as well, there is a Starbucks franchise in my university library so i treat myself to that when i’m spending long periods of time studying.

2. Accessories – what do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?

Boots & Beanie’s are my go to! My favourite boots are the Selena Gomez for Adidas Neo Label military boots- i’ve wore them all autumn/winter for two years and they still look brand new! Super excited to wear my PB beanie this year- i bought it in the summer but it hasn’t been cold enough to wear it yet. I love the idea of gloves but if you’re using your phone or listening to music i don’t find them that practical.

3. Music – what’s your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?

I love sitting in my room working with candles burning listening to acoustic songs on Spotify in the Autumn. If i’m driving or out and about, i find it acceptable to bring out the Christmas songs towards the end of september…

4. Perfume – what’s your favourite scent for this time of year?

Chanel No.5, i wear Bissful Mistful all year round also

5. Candles – what scents will you be burning this season?

I am SO SO SO excited for Zoella Lifestyle which comes out tomorrow! I’ve been burning all my candles like a mad woman for the past fortnight so i have no excuse not to buy them! Right now, i’m burning Henri Bendel Provence Scented Candle.

6. What do you love most about Autumn?

Everything just feels really cosy and warm, i love the clothes- autumnal colours are definitely my favourite colour palette. I love tights and simple body con/skater dresses, skirts and jumpers so Autumn is really the perfect time to wear them! It’s also not too cold yet and there is no horrible, slushy snow on the ground which i hate!

7. Favourite makeup look?

Warm, rich eye colours, i’ve ordered a new Zoeva palette which should be arriving at the start of the week and it looks perfect for Autumn! I love a dark lip also whether that be berry or dark, rich red.

8. What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?

University will be taking up a lot of my time but i have a few exciting weeks ahead! We are going to see Joe & Caspar Hit The Road and Justin Bieber in the same weekend! Planning some cute days out in Glasgow and Edinburgh also and one of my favourite things to do in Autumn is the Shoebox appeal which i’ll be dedicating a whole blog post to!

I really hope you enjoyed this post, if you do The Autumn Tag please link me in the comments below so i can read them all!
