The Autumn Tag!

This is the first tag that we've ever done on our blog thanks to the lovely Louise from As Seen On Louise. Her blog is absolutely amazing (you should definately check it out)! so it was a real treat when I found out that she had nominated us for The Autumn Tag! Autumn happens to be both of our favourite time of year so let's get started!

1. Coffee - What's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks or any other coffee shop?
Here is a confession that might shock people - I've never been to any fancy coffee shop like Starbucks or Costa so I've never had a seasonal coffee or any other seasonal drink! I know everyone seems to have been to Costa but I never have. I don't think I'd like the pumpkin spice lattes that everyone seems to like. You can't go wrong with a good old hot chocolate or cup of tea in the colder weather though, can you?

2. Accessories - What do you opt for, scarf, boots or gloves?
We are both obsessed with boots and chunky shoes. I've recently saw the most perfect pair of boots in River Island that I now need in my life. I hate it when I fall in love with something that I can't buy. The boots are £65! But I love scarf and gloves too. I love evrything about fashion in the colder months.

3. Music - What's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
I don't change my music taste, we are rock/metal gals for all year round. We are currently looking forward to seeing Slipknot and Korn in January! Oh my God, I'm so excited I can barely think about it without geting too excited!

4. Perfume - What's your favourite scent for this time of year?
Most of out perfumes smell quite suitable for Autumn/Winter as we're not big fans of the summer, fruity scents. I love wearing Versace perfumes as they are so rich and warm smelling.

5. Candles - What scents will you be burning this season? 
I don't really buy candles but I recently smelt the Yankee Christmas Cookie and I'd love to have it! So expensive though.

6. What do you love best about Autumn?
Everything! Fashion, HALLOWEEN, bonfire night, Christmas coming, the makeup, the leaves on the ground, the darker nights and keeping warm all day long.

7. Favourite make up look?
I always used to favour a bold berry lip but as I'm learning to do my makeup properly I've got obsessed with a dark, smokey eye shadow look that is blended really well with shimmery shades!

8. What are you looking forward to the most in the Autumn?
Counting down the days until Christmas and buying too many clothes in the meantime :)

There you go! and seeing as we are still quite new bloggers, we nominate everyone reading this to fill in their answers to the Autumn tag!

Leah and Rachel.

  5. I love the Christmas countdown too! Also, if you get an oil burner (or wax tart burner, whatever you call it haha!) you can get Yankee Candle wax tarts, they're only £1.49 or cheaper if you look on eBay! :D x

  12. I'm not into these fancy seasonal coffees either. I just think they cost so much money for what they are and I'd rather save the money and spend it on something I really need. Like more dresses ;)

  15. I can't believe you're going to see Korn and Slipknot in January, I am JEALOUS! I love rock songs, not too much with metal as it's a little heavy for my liking. xx
