Today’s Friday Favourite post is dedicated to Autumn and all the amazing things that come with it. Crispy leaves, Starbucks drinks and so much more. Celebrate the best season of the year with me!
Thanks to This and That Blog for posting this and inspiring me to do my own post all about Autumn.
1 – Okay, we’re talking coffee. What is your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero? I can’t NOT say the Starbucks pumpkin spiced latte can I?! I love it and I look forward to it all year. But what I love more are the Christmas red cups – the toffee nut latte is my favourite. Oh, and chia tea reminds me of this time of year too.
Not a fan of Costa and Nero – their coffee just doesn’t compare.
2 – Accessories – What do you opt for – boots, scarf, gloves? All of them! I like to head out the door well prepared for the unpredictable Manchester Autumn weather. Oh, look, there is sunshine…..heads out the door…..oh, it’s snowing. That’s usually how it goes. You can’t beat a pair of really good boots, especially when it starts to get icy. I have so many scarves and hats they actually need their own room.
3 – Music – What do you love to listen to during the Autumn? I like to listen to a lot of chill out music this time of year. Anything with a soft guitar or alight beat. I am really back in to Zero 7 and Jose Gonzalez at the moment. That is what is on my playlist. Not very good to run to though.
4 – Perfume – what’s your favourite scent at this time of the year? My perfumes definitely change depending on the season. In the summer I wear a lot of floral scents and when it starts to get colder I like heavier, more musky scents.
5 – Candles – which scents will you be burning this season? Vanilla! I am the queen of candles, I have the everywhere. Although we don’t burn them very often as they don’t look as nice then. I have a really nice vanilla and cinnamon candle somewhere.
6 – What do you love most about Autumn? I think it would be easier to list the things I don’t like (although I can’t think of any). I love the crispy leaves, I love the cold air on an early morning run, I like going shopping for Autumn clothes, food cooked in the slow cooker, soups and stews, cuddling up on the sofa with Dave and the cats, lazy Sunday mornings in bed when it is too cold to get out, coconut hot chocolate and Christmas being just around the corner.
7 – Favourite make up look? I don’t have a certain look for different times of the year. My make-up routine is very basic and the same all year round. I don’t wear make-up every day. I do moisturise more often in the colder months though, as my skin tends to crack.
8 – What are you looking forward to most during this season? Basically everything mentioned in question 6. Although this Autumn we have our trip to Jamaica (we leave on the 29th of this month), so that is 2 weeks out of Autumn that I won’t get to experience. I can’t see there being too many crispy leaves in Jamaica.
