The Autumn Tag ♥

I got this Tag from my lovely new friend Lottie at who is so just so nice and has a lovely blog that is well worth a follow.

If you are reading this,i would like to tag you and invite you do the questions that i will attempt to answer below. Hope you enjoy xx

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

Now i am not a big coffee drinker but recently a new branch of Insomnia did open up nearby so myself and the lovely BF decided to give it a try. I ordered a cappuccino and a chocolate doughnut to go with it and let me say,it was gorgeous. I am however a big tea drinker but i did enjoy my coffee and doughnut!

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

I do wear gloves occasionally in the autumn and do opt for boots over shoes/heels but the main accessory is tights. Absolute must have to wear in this time of year,preferably 80 denier black which do for work too.I do have a slight arthritis problem this time of year especially and believe me,wearing tights really helps keep the pain at bay.They are an absolute godsend! My favourite Autumn look would be a sweater,dress or skirt,boots,hat and with black tights!

 3.  Music - what's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?

The music i listen to during Autumn is mainly from the 80's. There is a radio station here in Dublin called Radio Nova and it plays all old tracks especially 80's all day long. I always have it tuned in in the car and when i go to work,i always make sure that it is on. I especially like any songs by The Bangles,A Flock of Seagulls and any tracks from Asis,Survivor or Boston!

4.  Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year?

Oh well this one is an easy one for me as i wear Davidoff Cool Water all year round. I recently did a blog post on my fav perfume which if you fancy a read about a review of it,please have a look!

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

Now i am not a big fan of burning candles at all tbh so this is a difficult question in which the only answer i can give is none.Sorry!

  6.  What do you love most about Autumn?

 Cardigans,coats,lots of layering and trying to be as cosy as possible. I like to be able to put an outfit together that is girly yet cosy (i am a very girly girl tbh). I find this a challenge every Autumn as i like to be colourful with my outfit choices. I also like the leaves on the ground as we live in a very leafy village and from a tv point of view,it is xfactor time again.

 7.  Favourite makeup look?

I always go darker in Autumn but generally stick with my favourite lipstick for example, Lady Danger by Mac. I usually go darker around the eyes too and as for nail polish,i am always trying out new ones with my latest being Sailor 700 by Dior. I love Dior nail polish,it is simply the best with Rouge 999 being my favourite. Until recently,i have been a Rimmel girl but Dior is just too nice.

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

I suppose Halloween as it's a time to have fun and dress up.Over the years,i have mainly worked on Halloween night as i worked in nightclubs for a few years.Now i can dress up myself and go out and enjoy myself as everyone else seemed to do when i was working.It really was the best night out of the whole year and that includes New Years Eve! I am however more of a summer girl from an outfit point of view. I much prefere pretty dresses and short skirts and heels to the layering that goes with Autumn!
I am also excited for christmas,it's such a special time of year and as i will be spending it with the most amazing boyfriend ever,i cant wait! 

So there you go now,my answers to the questions supplied by the lovely Lottie and as i said earlier,if you are reading this,i tag you if you fancy it.It was fun putting this together as i love doing these sort of posts. Thanks again Lottie,so happy we met on Twitter xx

    1. Thanks so much for your comment Laura,Autumn is great for going that little bit darker! xx

  5. Hi lovely Hollie, how are you? Can't sleep so I thought I should stop by and have a little late night read. Aw I'm not too bothered about candles either. I do have some but I'm not going crazy when Yankee's releases a new scent (I have no smell sense so I can't smell anything anyway).

    Glad to see you've picked a blue shade as your autumn colour. Great choice. Hope to speak to you soon via Twitter or on my blog xxx
