Hello beauties!

This is my first tag, and my second post ever! I am loving blogging and getting to know the community - you are all so welcoming and kind and all simply amazing people. Before I go off on a tangent, let me continue with the Autumn tag...

Day 2 - The Autumn Tag
Autumn is truly one of the most gorgeous seasons: crisp, copper leaves and the cuddly warmth as you return home from the chilly outdoors. Bonfires, sweeping leaves off the drive, hot chocolates... So let's start! I was tagged by the lovely and b-e-a-u-tiful Katie, I dare you to check out her blog now!

For Autumn, what is your ...
1. Favourite thing about it ? Being able to wrap up warm in cute scarves, hats and fluffy jumpers for sure!

2. Favourite drink ? Definitely has to be Whittard Luxury White Hot Chocolate. It is absolutely heavenly on a rainy day and more-ish! Makes a creamy and smooth drink, I suggest you snap it up before they're sold out this year - plus at £5.50 for a tub makes it definitely worth it!

3. Favourite scent/candle ? I would have to say the Ikea TINDRA apple scented candles! These are lush, and give off an apple scent, very suitable for apple-picking season.

4. Best lipstick ? Rimmel Lasting Finish shade 107 by Kate Moss is a lovely deep plum and rosy colour. I apply a lip balm on top (Burt's Bees) to keep my lips from getting chapped, which gives me a subtle sheen. 107 is a gorgeous shade for Autumn!

5. Go-to moisturiser ? Autumn is all about gradually changing your skin-care routine in preparation for winter. I use L'Occitane Extra-Gentle body and hand lotion: you can definitely feel it hydrating your skin. It leaves it feeling silky smooth. It is a bit pricey, especially on student budget! I was fortunate enough to get my bottle as a gift from a friend, and I wouldn't mind saving pennies for a new bottle. This moisturiser definitely fits into the cliché of "a little goes a long way".

6. Go-to colours for the eyes ? I love a good neutral eyeshadow look for every season, but in Autumn I tend to mix it up a touch. My MUA Undressed me too (I will do a review about this!) has some lovely umber, amber and copper colours, which have a golden shimmer. I like to apply a tiny bit of copper colour on my eyelid and blend a darker mauve or brown closer to my lash line. Love my MUA palette!

7. Favourite music or band/singer to listen to ? I am absolutely loving the new Arctic Monkeys album 'AM'. Heaven to my ears!

8. Favourite outfit to wear (i.e boots & a scarf combo) ? A warm, knitted jumper over a patterned casual shirt, paired with plain leggings and lace-up boots. Add a matching scarf and beanie hat - viola!

9. Autumn treat ? (i.e a new scarf or bag you have your eye on) So I'm loving the tartan print this season and especially the variations of forest greens. I love the tartan scarves and I'm currently wanting the tartan scarf from H&M (only £10! Oh, how I love H&M!). I'm also loving the boyfriend coats at Topshop, such a classic look.

10 . Favourite place to be ? I love the park in the Autumn, so it will have to be a bench overlooking the lake. I love looking and photographing the leaves and taking them home too - no leaf is ever the same in Autumn!

So what's your favourite thing in Autumn? Or favourite autumn past-time?
