The Autumn TAG 2014

The Autumn TAG 2014

Feel free to use the image, just remember to reference me as the source of the image for copyright reasons :)

As you know, I like starting my seasonal tags and with Autumn being my favourite season of the year, I thought I'd write a new one for 2014.  If you're reading this, you're tagged!  If you tag me in the tweet when you share it, I'll RT it too :D

1.  Ok we're talking coffee's - what's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?
For me that has to be an all-year-round drink - a vanilla chai latte - mmmmmmmmmm, and after extensively sampling them from all 3 coffee houses, I can confirm that the Cafe Nero one is the best - it's not overpowering in flavour and the mix in the chai powder really well so you don't get a cinnamon challenge at the end up of the cup (I totally had this with my Costa chai latte)

2.  Accessories - what do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?
I'm a big fan of wearing my Joe Browns' denim jacket (with a fish-tail back) teamed up with a big scarf - sometimes just a scarf for a bit of added warmth (depends how cold it is)

3.  Music - what's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
Typically here I'd say Led Zepplin, but I'm also in a very singer-songwriter mood, like Bic Runga (beautiful voice)

4.  Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year?
I have to say, I don't change it up - my go-to perfume is Lacoste Touch of Pink - but I can also be known to wear more spicy scents, one of my favourites being Sun Moon Stars by Karl Lagerfeld

5.  Candles - what scents will you be burning this season?
I'm more of a wax tart fan - I still have some 'sparkling apple' yankee tarts left over from Christmas, I'll be burning them, and spiced apple scents and cinnamon, mmmmmm :)

6.  What do you love most about Autumn?
For me it's everything, the earth winding down and preparing for winter, the beautiful colours the trees and leaves go, wrapping up warm and cozy, the scents and smells, the hot food (homemade soups with crusty bread) and especially this year, the impending birth of our first baby, our son :)

7.  Favourite makeup look?
As much as I don't wear it enough - I do love berry lips, strong brows, liquid eyeliner and mascara, however, what I tend to wear most is strong eyes and extra blusher for that 'been outside in the cold' look

8.  What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
Apart from chai lattes, scarves and generally being cozy?  My hubby and I started a new life together with our baby :)  Sorry, it's cheesy but it's true :)

Don't forget to tweet me your posts and mention me as the creator of the tag :)

  6. I think I might have to do this, I don't do many tags but I Love autumn! I may make my own image to go with it (unless that'd bother you?) because I have been wanting to use my creative software but lacking inspiration hehe

  7. Can't for the Christmas scents too, anything apple and spicy is just too good. And of course chai lattes!

  23. Stumbled upon this when searching for an Autumn tag to do, definitely going to give this a go!


    Also, I totally get what you mean about the 'Cinnamon challenge' at the bottom of drinks ;) ALL THE TIME. And then the overpowering taste just stays in your mouth for ages :| I'm not a fan of Costa as a general rule anyway ;)

  25. Thank you for creating this amazing tag! I suggest you try out Starbucks’ new Chestnut Praline Latte when it debuts Nov. 12th! I cannot wait to try it out. It seems like forever since Starbucks has debuted a new fall/winter flavor! I did this tag on my new blog – check it out! http://www.remyives.com/2014/10/the-autumn-tag.html
