Autumn Tag....

Lauren over at Belle Du Brighton posted this tag recently and as autumn is my absolute favourite time of year, I thought that I would have a go as it looked like fun!

A few photographs taken during autumn over the years....

For Autumn, what is your...

1. Favourite thing about it? everything! Halloween, Bonfire night, our wedding anniversary, being able to wear boots and warmer clothes, holidays (I prefer taking trips away at this time of year!), cold crisp days (perfect for long walks with the dog), dark nights, getting cosy and enjoying plenty of warm drinks! Our first baby is due to arrive in October so i'm terribly excited for that too!  

We married at Whitley Hall in October 2009

2. Favourite drink? Pumpkin spice lattes..... and as many as is humanly possible before they disappear again!


3. Favourite scent/candle? I love Witches Brew by Yankee Candle in all its dark sweet patchouli-ish Gothic goodness.... we burn it every year at home and it always makes me think of autumn! A review on Amazon describes the scent as "the image of a freshly dug grave, with the perfume from nearby funeral wreaths and smoke from bonfires lingering in the air"....! 

4. Best lipstick? Currently using Naked Beige by Soap & Glory.... to be honest i'm not really a lipstick loving girl at any point during the year!

5. Go to moisturiser? Enriched Moisturiser or Rose & Honey moisturiser, both by B Skincare. Lovely natural products, great for sensitive and dry skin. Handmade in Cornwall too! I always pick some up whilst i'm down there.

6. Go to colours for the eyes? Anything dark with a bit of shimmer!   

7. Favourite music or band/singer to listen to? My taste in music doesn't really change massively throughout the year but I guess AFI are probably one of my 'autumn' bands if I had to pick!

"Deadened branches stirred by whispers in the wind.
Fall children fill the streets at dusk, at last, it all will begin."
AFI - "Fall Children"

8. Favourite outfit to wear (i.e. boots and a scarf combo)? Boots, dress, leggings/tights, my favourite coat!

9. Autumn treat? Parkin, bonfire toffee, hot chocolate with all the trimmings and any form of pudding with custard!

10. Favourite place to be? I love just being outside in the autumn, whether it is a local walk or getting out to the Peak District. In terms of getting away, autumn isn't complete for me without a trip to see the illuminations in Blackpool and I am also partial to a trip to Disneyland.... I love their Halloween season! 

Our Halloweeny honeymoon in Disneyland!
