We were tagged by the lovely Latasha from Today I Adore, which is an amazing beauty blog which is totally worth checking out. Her hair is incredible, I have the urge to shave it off and glue it to my head. Which is not creepy at all. I am sorry.
Favourite thing about Autumn?
I have come to the conclusion that autumn is my favourite season, I have big love for those sexy cold-but-sunny days and there is nothing better than throwing on a chunky knit. I, like any Brit, enjoy complaining about the weather and autumn means that there is always a bit of small talk with strangers. But my ultimate favourite thing about autumn: drinking copious amounts of tea and staying in pyjamas all day, watching Love Actually.
100% tea. Although, I may stretch to a few caramel lattes from Starbucks if I’m feeling particularly wild. I know, let’s not all panic.
WELL, unfortunately my current perfume has run out and I’m living on the dregs of my Hugo Boss Femme. I’m also hugely poor so I can’t afford to buy a new perfume, but if I were to invest in a new one…my favourite autumn scent is Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel. It is the perfect spicy scent for colder weather!
I definitely prefer wearing lipstick during winter because you are allowed to cake on your makeup with the excuse that it keeps your face extra warm. Without a few layers of lippy, who knows what kind of frostbite you might get. Personal faves include Kate Moss for Rimmel in Shade 4 (amazing dark purple colour) and any red shade.
Go to moisturizer?
I have perpetually dry skin, it is REALLY boring. For my body, I get involved in any Nivea product I can get my hands on. For my face, I am currently using Manuka Doctor products (check out my review here, you scoundrels) but when they run out I plan to go back to my standard Olay moisturiser – it’s brilliant and smells lovely.
Go to colours for the eyes?
I’m not very adventurous when it comes to my eyeshadows so regardless of the weather, I will always wear neutral shades. I might do more smokey eyes because you can get away with looking like you’ve been down the mines in winter but that’s about it! What a boring human being I am.
Favourite band/singer to listen to?
I particularly enjoy listening to Eminem ‘Cold Wind Blows’ and any song by Wynter Gordon. Sometimes I might even crack out November Rain by Guns n Roses if I’m feeling retro.
Favourite outfit to wear?
Thick wooly tights, anything with a hint of burgundy and this autumn/winter, I will be cracking out the leather and autumn pastels A LOT.
I’m the type of gal who likes to treat herself all year round 😉 but I’m thinking of investing in a proper good quality winter coat. Mine are usually from Primark (although my beautiful Topshop one will always have a place in my heart) – while they are amazing, I want something a bit warmer!
Favourite place to be?
Lurking around Christmas markets with a pint of mulled cider in hand, in bed with a rubbish film and most definitely at the pub munching on lots of carbs to help keep my bear cubs warm during hibernation.
WELL. There you go! Is anyone else as excited about autumn/winter as I am? Claire and I have already been discussing Halloween outfits (keep your eyes peeled for these, it’s going to be ridiculous) and I genuinely can’t wait for Bonfire Night and all those jazzy activities.
