The Autumn Tag

34 comments
I've been tagged by the lovely Hanh from Hanhabelle to do the Autumn Tag, and I'm very excited about it! I love doing tags and I love getting into the spirit of the changing seasons, so this is perfect! By the way, if you haven't checked out Hanh's blog yet, you definitely should. It's a lovely mix of beauty and lifestyle. So thank you Hanh for tagging me, and here goes!

The Autumn Tag


1. Ok we're talking coffees - what's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks or another coffee shop?
I'm not a massive fan of coffee. Very occasionally I might have a latte but I much prefer tea or hot chocolate. Starbucks' salted caramel hot chocolate is amazing. If I'm going for tea, I love trying all the different kinds. I had raspberry and ginseng tea at Café Nero recently, which was delicious. However, if I'm having a slice of cake (which is often, my friends, often) I love a traditional English breakfast tea with plenty of milk.

2. Accessories - what do you opt for: scarf, boots, gloves?
And the rest! I get cold very easily so I like to wrap up as warm as I can as soon as the temperature starts to drop. I'm really loving how popular fedoras and trilbies and wide brimmed hats are at the moment. I got a fedora last year (pictured above) and I love it, but unfortunately it's a bit big for me. I'd love to find one to fit my tiny little pin-head. The only downside of Autumn/Winter fashion for me is the expense. I always want to have a nice selection of coats, boots, scarves, hats, etc, but decent coats and boots are pretty pricey so realistically I'm not going to have dozens of them, which sucks because I always want MORE!

3. Music - what's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
My musical tastes don't really change with the seasons. In fact music isn't generally a huge part of my life, but every now and then I love me some Beyoncé, Adele, Katy Perry.... you get the general idea.

4. Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year?
I'm a huge fan of Jo Malone perfumes and I reckon their Amber and Lavender would be perfect for this time of year. I currently have this as a bath oil and it's amazing - a really warm and unique scent. I've never really thought about switching up my perfume to suit the changing seasons before but it's a lovely idea. Plus, it's an excuse to buy more perfumes!

5. Candles - what scents will you be burning this season?
I tend to gravitate towards floral fragrances when it comes to scented candles, no matter what the time of year. Midnight Jasmine from Yankee Candle is one of my all time favourites.

6. What do you love most about Autumn?
Walking through the countryside on a sunny day when the leaves are changing colour is pretty special. I also love that "back to school" feeling - it's a time of settling back into routine with new energy after the summer and setting new goals. Also, lots of new dramas get going on TV at this time of year - I've been loving Legends on Sky 1. And it's my birthday in Autumn too!

7. Favourite makeup look?
Berry coloured lips and nails for sure, and pink toned blush.

8. What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
Apart from my birthday, just the new season itself and changing things up a little. A change is as good as a rest, as they say!

I tag Jess from The Beauty Sanctuary, Karen from Style Sunrise and Sophie from Soinspo. And anyone else who feels like getting their Autumn Tag on! Let me know if you do it and I will read it for sure.

  1. Hi Kate, thank you for your kind words about my blog :)

    Loved reading your answers, I know what you mean about winter fashion being more expensive! Boots and coats are so pricy but I always try and buy quality pieces to last me a good few years.
    Also I need to try that salted caramel hot chocolate from Starbucks, it sounds delicious!

  2. I also have to agree, I love the fall fashion, but the prices are not very budget friendly. Sometimes, I splurge on an item, but I know I can use them through the colder months. I always go for peppermint hot chocolate at Starbucks, but the salted caramel is delicious too :)

  5. Gorgeously done Kate, I absolutely adore your photo; stylish boots, a beautiful fedora, tartan, tea... you've combined all the best things about fall in one shot! Love! I really enjoyed reading your answers, I am completely with you on the coffee front, I really dislike the taste and always opt for tea. My boyfriend and I are always in Starbucks having a hot chocolate, unbeatable ;) I'm so sure your fedora looks stunning on you! Can imagine you rocking it so well without a doubt. Berry lips are such a must for Autumn too. <3

    Thank you so much for tagging me, I really can't wait to get going with it ^_^

    1. Thanks Mary-Katherine! I do really like them, but haven't worn them that much. I think they actually look better by themselves than they do on my feet, unfortunately! x

  8. Love that hat! And love those boots! And love that post!! :D
    I too am a tea lover and I keep trying various flavors...although I can absolutely not have it with milk/sugar :-|
