The Autumn Tag

IMG_9517.JPGI was tagged to do the Autumn Tag a few weeks ago by my lovely friends Maisie from Love, Maisie, Caitylis from Caitylis and Zoe from  Mummy & Liss and as I sit here at 9pm with nothing published for Blogtober today I thought this would be as good an opportunity as any. I like joining in with these tags occasionally as they are totally different from my usual style of post. I’ve tagged some other bloggers at the end too so be sure to go over and have a look at their pages too.

1. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE AUTUMNAL LIP COLOUR?
I’m terrible with lipsticks but I do try to switch it up in the Autumn and wear some darker colours. I’m so pale that I can’t go too dark though!

2. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE AUTUMNAL NAIL COLOUR?
I’m a pastel pink nail girl all year round. This leopard ain’t gonna change it’s spots!

3. FAVOURITE AUTUMN DRINK?
I know it’s a total cliche, but it has to be the good old Pumpkin Spice Latte. It’s just as well we don’t live too close to a Starbucks otherwise we would be pretty broke right now.

4. FAVOURITE AUTUMN CANDLE?
Definitely a spiced apple scent. Anything that smells like cinnamon and apple pie is a winner for me. As soon as we get closer to Christmas I love the Candy Cane Lane Yankee Candle too. I basically like Autumn to feel as festive as possible, by the time October rolls around I’m ready for Christmas preparation to begin!

5. FAVOURITE AUTUMN ACCESSORY?
I’ve had a giant tartan scarf for years and I bring it out every year without fail. It goes with so much of my wardrobe and is seriously so cosy.

6. HAUNTED HOUSE OR SCARY MAZE?
Basically…neither! I’m such a wimp! If I had to choose though, I would go for the scary maze because at least you’re not as confined as you are in a haunted house.

7. FAVOURITE HALLOWEEN MOVIE?
I’m not a fan of scary movies in general although Halloween is the one night of the year that Dan is allowed to pick a scary film for us to watch. I don’t really watch though; I pretend to be watching from behind my hands but I definitely have my eyes closed too.

8. FAVOURITE HALLOWEEN SWEETS?
This is basically the only part of Halloween that appeals to me, I like to buy lots of sweets in the build up to Halloween and then just eat them myself. I probably should feel more ashamed of that than I do! We don’t really get many trick or treaters anyway so they would only go to waste and I have to have something to distract me from whatever horrors are happening on my telly.

 9. WHAT ARE YOU DRESSING UP AS FOR HALLOWEEN?
I really don’t usually bother with Halloween but we’ve got a Halloween themed first birthday party to go to so that was a good excuse to make a bit of effort for once. I’ve got a T Shirt that says ‘I’m a mouse, duh’ (if you don’t get that Mean Girls reference, you can’t sit with us) and some mouse ears and that’s about as far as I’m going to go. I’m more excited to find Darcie a scary cute costume.

10. WHATS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT AUTUMN?
The evenings getting cosier, the trees getting prettier and more and more excuses to snuggle up on the sofa and watch Gilmore Girls with a nice cup of tea.
