What I ♥ About Fall......

So I saw this tag floating around Youtube & I thought it would make a really fun blogpost!

For me Autumn/Fall is one of my favourite times of the year, more so than summer (can I really say that??!! argh yes!) just because I love how warm & cosy it makes me feel. 
Over sized knitted jumpers, thick socks, chilly clear nights, change in leaves, comfort food... the list goes on!

So here is what I ♥ the most about this time of the year....

1. My Favourite Lip Product:
Well I am not a huge lover of dark or bright coloured lipsticks/gloss & my lip products tend to stay the same all year round (I am such an exciting person, not.) But these three have been my go to lip products so far this fall. 

I always like to keep my lips well moistened (steady on love!) during this time of the year as they get very dry, so this lip balm I find works a treat! Smells like roses if you like that kind of thing & keeps my lips nice & moisturised throughout the day even underneath lipstick! 

my other two fav lip products are these cheeky little Revlon numbers! I have been enjoying a lot of Revlon products as of late, especially the Colourburst Lip Butters & Just Bitten Lip Balm/Stain: both highly moisturising & both very buildable, which for me is great as I don't like too much colour on the old lips!

               Country Bumpkin, Treasure, Jermyn Street, Victoria & Spanish Moss.

2. My Favourite Nail Polish:
Love, Love, LOVE these colours. Browns, golds, deep reds, greens & purples are my go to colours for the fall & ever single one of these is such a dream to apply & last for a good few days without chipping- bonus!

3. My Favourite Starbucks Fall Drink:
Well here in good ol' Britain we don't really have as many festive choices in Starbucks when it comes to this time of the year, or actually at any time of the year for that matter! Which makes me sad, however having said that they have just brought in the Spiced Pumpkin Latte & Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate!! YAY!!

But defiantly my amazing Chi Tea Latte with Soy Milk is my go to fall/winter drink. It just tastes like this time of the year: spicy & warm it's just heaven in a cup! oh & I also like to make mine extra hot so that it lasts a while :)

4. My Favourite Fall Candle:
Of course it had to be the Yankee Candle Sparkling Cinnamon! Cinnamon is just such a fall smell for me, as it makes me feel like we are just a small step away from Christmas!! I burn it every night & it makes me feel warm inside.

Side note: I wish I could grab some of the Bath & Bodyworks candles for this time of the year as guaranteed I would love them, sadly I can't get over to the US for this time of the year boo!!

5. Favourite Fall Scarf or Accessory:
Burgundy & deep reds are my favourite colour for this season as it is such a rich, autumn colour, so in summer when I saw this bag it screamed out to me to enter my life! I had been wanting this Zara bag for a long time but could never decide what colour I should get it in, so when they realised this colour I knew it was fate & my parents surprisingly brought it for my birthday! I love how it fits everything in & also how structured it is.

6. Haunted House, Haunted Hayride or Haunted Corn Maze?:
This time of the year always makes me sad that I don't like in America! Americans go all out during fall & Halloween which sadly does not happen here in England (boo!), so this question is difficult because I have never experienced a haunted hayride or a haunted corn maze! However both for me would be the most fun experience ever!

7. My Favourite Halloween Movie:
I am a huge fan of scary movies, so picking a favourite is very hard so I picked three!!

Without a doubt Hocus Pocus is my all time favourite Halloween film, it brings back such good childhood memories & it's amazing. But also The Nightmare Before Christmas & later on in my teen years The Saw Movies were just the best horror/thriller movies of all time.

8. My Favourite Candy To Eat At Halloween:
Again sadly here in England we don't really have or I have never really seen any candy, no candy corns nothing! It's only I think over the last few years I have actually seen some but nothing on the scale of things I have seen in America. I remember as a kid very vividly going to a Halloween party as a cat & eating these lollipops that made my tongue turn green! But last year I did see Cadbury's had brought out eggs called 'Scream Eggs' which are nice!

9. What am I Dressing Up as For Halloween:
Well every year I never really go all out & be like 'I'm going to dress up as...' because as I say here in England its not celebrated as much as I would like it to be. Ideally I would like to dress up as a Zombie Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, but in general I shall probably just be wearing my red wig again with some kind of dramatic makeup!

10. What Is My Favourite Thing About Fall:
Over sized cable knit jumpers, fuzzy socks, layers, pies, soups, fires, changing in colours of the leaves, cider, apple pie & cream, hot water bottles, burgundy, boots, cold clear evenings, the smell of fall, kicking leaves, cold walks, hugs, reading with a thick blanket, warm bubble baths.

I tag all of you gorgeous lot 
leave me a link to your blog with what you love about fall!

Much Love,
