Hello Autumn

Hello everyone, I've been pretty stressed out these past few days as my laptop crashed the other day, and I lost all my drafts and photos I've taken recently for reviews, as well as images from photo-shoots!. My laptop is currently round my Brother in Law's as he's attempting to save all my files for me. Fingers crossed I'm able to get everything back, I think it's about time I invested in an external hard drive!

A few weeks ago the lovely Lauren tagged me in her Autumn tag post and since October is now in full swing I thought I'd finally get round to doing my own post!

1. Favourite thing about Autumn?
I love the early days of Autumn where the weather is still warm and the leaves are just starting to change colours. I used to be more of a Summer girl but as I'm getting older I'm really starting to love the Autumn season as it's perfect cuddle weather when you can out the fire on, make some hot chocolate and watch a film while curled up on the sofa away from the cold and rain. 

2. Favourite drink?
This is probably really boring but my favourite drink is tea, as the weather gets colder I tend to drink more hot drinks and tea is at the top of my list! On extra cold nights I normally have a hot chocolate before bed, with marshmallows of course!

 3. Favourite scent/candle?
My favourite scene for Autumn is "mulled wine" by Yankee Candle. The scene fills the room with spices and it starts to get me all excited for Christmas. I haven't been able to find this candle for ages though so hopefully I'll be able to find it again in time for getting the Christmas decorations up!

 4. Best lipstick?
I don't normally tend to wear lipstick in the Autumn/Winter, I'm really pale and darker lipsticks end up making me look like a ghost and a bit sick. It's not an attractive look for me. I normally just stick with a basic lip balm to keep my lips moisturised!

5. Go to moisturiser?
My favourite moisturiser at the moment is the Nivea Soft cream, my skin is really dry and sensitive so I need a moisturiser that's going to keep my skin soft without irritating it and this moisturiser is fantastic!

6. Go to colour for the eyes?
I have green eyes and so I normally tend to go for more neutral colours and slight browns. This palette by MUA is perfect to create a subtle day time look or smokey eye for the evening. 

7. Favourite music or band/singer to listen to?
I normally find myself listening to The xx in the evenings, they're the perfect  band to chill out to if not Daughter is my second band of choice.

 8. Favourite outfit to wear (i.e. boots & a scarf combo)?
At the moment I'm wearing my new baggy cardigan from Primark with my tan brogues, I like to feel comfortable and baggy tops/cardigans are the way to go. I normally find myself walking around a lot as my Uni campus is spread out over the City so comfortable footwear is a must, especially shoes that cover your feet because no one wants to get wet feet after getting caught in the rain!

9. Autumn treat?
 My Autumn treat is normally apple pie and custard, my Nan makes them all the time this time of year so I normally have to watch my weight incase I eat one too many slices!

10. Favourite place to be?
After a long day at Uni its curled up at home with my gorgeous dog Sam, he has a habit of sleeping on my feet and when I whack out the slanket he can't resist jumping up on the sofa and having a cuddle. If I'm not at home then I'm normally chilling out with friends either at the movies or down the local pub :)
