The Autumn Tag

Autumn is here and we now embark upon sweater weather, watching Harry Potter on repeat, and seeing the trees change colors. This is one of my favorite times of the year. Nothing gets better than tasty foods, like warm soups and apple pie with vanilla ice cream, warm drinks, and football! It is also one step closer to Christmas and that makes it even better.  This tag was created by Makeup-Pixi3. Let's get started! 

Ok we're talking coffee's - what's your favorite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?

I have an espresso machine at home, so I usually have espresso two times a day (yes, I should go to Over Espresso Drinkers Anonymous, but I just can’t find the strength). In the morning I have a Pumpkin Latte. I use Torani Pumpkin Pie Syrup, which has an authentic, delicious flavor! In the afternoon I like to melt Ghirardelli semisweet chocolate in a pan with some milk. Sometimes I will add espresso to make it a mocha. Then I top it with homemade whipped cream and some Torani Caramel Sauce. It is absolutely delectable!

Accessories - what do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?

During the first half of autumn I opt for boots. Once November hits I opt for all three. It started snowing on Halloween last year; so, the temperature drops really low fairly quickly and stays there.  

Music - what's your favorite music to listen to during Autumn?

I don’t have an autumn playlist; however, I do break out a lot of my Christmas music during this time of the year. I love My Kind of Christmas by Christina Aguilera and Cheers, It’s Christmas by Blake Shelton.

Perfume - what's your favorite scent for this time of year?

I love any scents with woods, musk, and vanilla. I am gravitating towards Bebe Gold Eau de Parfum and Bebe for Woman by Bebe Eau de Parfum. They are both woody florals; however, Bebe for Woman is a much lighter scent. I like this one during the day and Bebe Gold at night. The Victoria’s Secret Ultra Moisturizing Hand and Body Cream in Vanilla Lace smells incredible! It compliments any perfume I am wearing and lasts throughout the day. Their Amber Romance Body Wash pairs brilliantly with most perfumes as well. I love mixing scents!

Candles - what scents will you be burning this season?

I am currently burning Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Salted Caramel Corn, and Marshmallow Fireside by Bath and Body Works. Each has a distinctive autumnal scent. They are really lovely! Salted Caramel Corn is probably my favorite out of the three. This may be because I am a certified caramel queen, but who knows? ;) 

What do you love most about Autumn?

I love the colors of the trees, the leaves scattered on the ground and floating in the air, the warm drinks, and the overall atmosphere. I can wear sweaters and throw warm blankets over myself while sipping hot chocolate. There is something very comfy and cozy about this season that I greatly enjoy.

Favorite makeup look?

I love dark lips and soft brown eyes or pink lips and smoky brown eyes. If I am in the mood to wear color on my eyes, I usually gravitate towards plum because it brings out the green in my hazel eyes.

What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?

I am looking forward to football (Go Trojans!) and the TV series Nashville. I am also looking forward to Thanksgiving! It has always been a huge holiday in my family with the food, football, and overall merriment.
