The Autumn Tag

I was tagged by the lovely Jordan Nixon who, like myself is a fashion blogger so please go and check out her blog; jordandakota.blogspot.co.uk!
Autumn is honestly so amazing its the time of year when you can bring out your jumpers and your oversized coats and damn its and excuse to cuddle. I was lucky enough to visit New York in fall and i have to say since then its been set in my mind as my favourite time of year alongside Christmas (of course).

 
 
1. What is your favourite thing about this time of year?
Ok, Autumn is amazing for so many reasons, as I mentioned before the idea of big warm coats and amazing simple outfits with statement warm pieces and oh my goodness help i am going off topic. I love the weather this time of year, or at least when its not raining its wonderful, the colour on the trees is always so lovely to look at and it tends to be that kind of cold that doesn't freeze you to death but makes your nose go that super cute rose shade. I love how cosy it all feels and HALLOWEEN I forgot how could i forget?! Dressing up with wonderful costume make up and ahhhhh autumn.
 
2. What is your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Café Nero?
Right, i am absolutely in love with the peppermint hot chocolate which Starbucks have out around Christmas time and as winter starts to set in, its absolutely amazing and is basically heaven in a cup, if you bring me peppermint hot chocolate i will love you endlessly, I love it so much that I genuinely emailed Starbucks to ask whether they will have it available to buy on the UK store or whether i could have it shipped over, genuinely. They said they are working on it, you're welcome. My favourite seasonal drink from Costa is the honeycomb hot chocolate that they do around Christmas time in the super cute Christmas cups they have out every year and half the reason I get drinks there is to get the cups I adore them. There is a hot chocolate theme here isnt there, its not a drink I tend to have at all any other time of  year so I tend to get my hot chocolate intake in the winter! Café Nero isn't really a favourite of mine so i am not too sure, i dont even think I have ever seen a special seasonal drink there! BUT CAN I JUST SAY the range of drinks in Starbucks is awful compared to the US and Canada, when i go over its heaven and yeah this is why I emailed.
 
3. Autumn accessories, what do you opt for? Scarf? Boots? Gloves?
I tend to go for a big oversized coat, in the past couple of weeks I picked up my new winter coat for this year and it is the most beautful coat I have ever bought honestly. I am in love with a good pair of black leather gloves so these a must have for me in the autumn and the winter times, a big warm scarf is obviously a must have too! I wear boots all year round so duh! Boots!

4. Favourite autumn make up look?
Its got to be a bronze shadow eye with a shadow liner paired with some bronzed cheeks and some dark ass lipstick, or for every day and browny nude (much like MAC's Velvet Teddy which I wear a hell of a lot since I bought it in July) and you're on you're on your way to the best autumn look! Its definitely my go to this time of year.

5. What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
I am looking forward to being off on half term and being able to dress all wintery and fabulous and walk round Manchester and go to the library and drink hot chocolate and all that wonderful stuff. I am also looking forward the mybandagedress event on the 11th of October in Birmingham and i am so so so so so excited, I can't wait to meet all of the lovely people going.

6. Favourite place to be?
Canada. 100%.

7. Favourite scent/candle?
My favourite is probably November Rain by Yankee Candle, when i was in Scotland for the commonwealth games i went in and smelt it and oh my goodness it was so amazing, and guess who didn't buy it? Me!! I have never really been a candle person so it didn't make much sense for me to buy it but ever since 've been searching for it so if you know where I can get it please let me know!


So this was my autumn tag, I hope that you enjoyed this and let me know if this kind of thing is something you would like to see more of! I will be sorting out fashion related posts soon as I want these to be longer than the rest so hopefully they will be coming soon!
Love,
