I love reading these types of blog posts. They really are a bit of light hearted fun and a great way to get to know a little more about the bloggers you follow. Not to mention autumn is probably my favourite season so what better post to be tagged in! Speaking of, I was tagged by the lovely Lauren from Diary of a Spanglish Girl to do ‘The Fall Tag’ – if you haven’t already, make sure you have a read of her tag here. They’re different questions to ones I will be answering below. But without ado, here’s my Fall Tag…
Describe your feelings of autumn in three words
Crispy. Cosy. Romantic.
What three things do you hate about the season?
Especially at the moment, I am hating the cold. In the UK we’ve had about two weeks of that gorgeous autumnal feel – where you can venture out for the day in just a wooly jumper or denim jacket, and it’s somehow jumped straight into winter. I mean it was snowing in some places up North last week!
The second thing I hate has got to be how early it now gets dark. I’m all for the cosy nights in – in fact I love them – but it’s pitch black before I’ve even left the office at the moment. Thirdly, I kind of ‘hate’ how the best parts of autumn (pumpkin picking, Halloween and bonfire night) are all so close to each other and at the start of the season. It always feels like autumn has finished after 5th November and I’d love to drag them out more.
Autumn or spring. In your opinion, what’s more romantic?
Oh, this is an interesting question. I’d have to say autumn though, especially as I listed it as an answer to question one. As much as I hate the cold, one of my favourite things about being in a relationship are duvet days, and during autumn you don’t have to feel guilty about them. I also think pumpkin picking and bonfire night can be quite cute events to attend with your other half.
Which fashion trend do you often prefer in the autumn season?
As much as I love big wooly jumpers, one of my current favourite fashion trends is being able to dress a bit more ‘smart’. I love neutral colours and classic coats, with hats and scarves to accessorise. This season I’ve also discovered cigarette trousers and I’m living for them. I’m also loving leather leggings, and short dresses with knee high boots. Anything classic is my go to!
What’s your favourite thing about Disney in autumn?
This is such a Lauren question aha! Probably the Halloween decorations in the Disney parks.
Do you like baking in autumn? If so, what do you bake?
I love baking at all times of year. It was actually one of the main features on my blog when I first started The Beau Life. Unfortunately I rarely have time to bake anymore though, and haven’t had a chance to this season apart from for charity bake sales at work.
Do you love travelling in autumn or enjoying the season at home?
I love day trips during autumn, such as Sunday strolls in Oxshot woods and Wimbledon common, as well as visiting garden centres and National Trust places. I don’t think I’ve ever particularly planned a trip abroad though especially because of the season.
What place do you wish to visit in the autumn season?
Disneyland for Halloween of course! Buuuut, next year I’ve already told my boyfriend that we have to go to Salem (and Boston) during autumn. The neighbourhood really goes all out on Halloween decor, and there’s also a museum of the witches of Salem that I’d love to visit.
Fairy lights or candles? What is your choice in autumn?
Candles. Hands down. TKMaxx have the best scented candles in autumn.
