So I thought for Blogtober day 4 I would write all about my favourite season of them all. I don’t know if you’ve picked up on the idea that I actually rrrrrreeeeeeeaaaaaally do like Autumn. I mean I’ve only been banging on about it on Twitter, Instagram and on here for what seems like a full month now ha! I’ve seen a few blog tags floating around over the last few years similar to this one and seeing as I haven’t done a tag post in a while, I thought now would be as good a time as ever. I’ve taken a few questions from this post from a few years ago on Makeup Savvy’s blog (seen here) and added some of my own questions to it as well.
What signifies the start of Autumn for you?
It would either be when the leaves start to change colour or when it’s really cold in the mornings and sunny and bright in the afternoons. I absolutely love that weather, even if it is a bit annoying when trying to dress appropriately for it!
What is your favourite Autumn scent?
I really like spicy scents in general but even more so at this time of year. Apple cinnamon and baked gingerbread are always firm favourites of mine. Similarly I also really like the smell of wood. We have a log fire at open and it just smells really good.
What is you favourite Autumn colour?
I love rich dark reds all year round but maroon and burgundy especially right now.
Are you a fan of a PSL (pumpkin spice latte) ?
What is your favourite Autumn drink?
A gingerbread latte usually but I haven’t actually been into any coffee chains and tried any of their seasonal drinks yet! I’m super into the sound of Starbucks Caramel Brulee latte this year though!
What’s your favourite coffee shop and their drink of choice?
It’s usually Costa just as that’s the only chain in my closest town but I do like Starbucks gingerbread latte or their seasonal hot chocolates!
Apple pie or Pumpkin pie?
Apple pie. Hands down!
What TV show, new or old are you looking forward to in the next few months?
You always know Christmas is drawing in when X Factor and The Apprentice is back on tv! I don’t really watch either to be honest I’ve not been watching much tv at all recently. But I am really excited that The Good Place season three is on Netflix. I need a Janet in my life!
What is your favorite Autumn fashion trend?
I love an accessory especially a hat. I really want to get a beret or invest in a really nice coat this year.
What is your favourite comfort food to enjoy in the colder months?
I love a jacket potato with cheese and beans. It’s not very classy but it’s my fave!
What is your favourite Autumn activity?
I feel like in the UK there’s not much you can really do compared to like in the US. I might be wrong though! There aren’t any pumpkin patches near me and I’m a bit too old to be going trick or treating I reckon! But there’s a National Trust place near me called Stourhead and it always looks really beautiful in the Autumn colours so we usually make a visit as a family there.
Are you a fan of horror movies?
I like watching them behind a pillow does that count? I quite like thriller films and jumpy ones. I just don’t like blood and gore.
Do you ever do anything fun for Halloween?
I went to Fright Night at Thorpe Park last year with one of my best mates and it was such good fun. It took us about five hours to get home in the end.
What was your favourite part about halloween as a child?
Obvs getting all the sweets when trick or treating. I was a little chub though so of course I liked all the free sweets.
Are you a bigger fan of Bonfire night or Halloween?
Um I’d probably say Halloween just because I’m not bothered by bonfire night! Lowkey afraid of fireworks as a child.
Where is your dream destination to visit in the Autumn?
CANADA. It looks perfect and like I should be eating poutine and wearing plaid shirts and posing in Banff. Not like I’ve thought this through or anything…..
Do you always forget about the clocks going back?
YES. It confuses me everytime. Although with smartphones you no longer have to worry about manually adjusting the time. I was out at the pub one year when the clocks went back and I’ve never seen so many confused people to go through 1am twice.
When do you usually start preparing for Christmas?
Christmas Eve? I know it’s awful I hate myself for it but I am so unorganised and am usually up until 2am wrapping presents still.
I’m tagging these absolute huns to take part in this because I’d love, love, LOVE to know what they’d say. And because they’re all absolutely great jus saying.
Thanks for reading!!
MUCH LOVE X
