Fall in Love

I seem to appreciate Autumn (or Fall if you're over on the other side of the pond) more and more as I get older. I used to associate it with going back to school or University and being bloody freezing all the time. However, now I'm beginning to fall in love with it a little more each year. The beautiful Megan Jane over at Seek My Scribbles tagged me in her 'Fall in Love' post - so here is my version. 

What is your favourite fall scent?
Uhm, I'm not sure what you would class as an Autumn scent? Leaves? I'm not a fan of the damp leaf smell if I'm being totally honest. I'm currently burning several different Yankee's (the candle, not the baseball team, that'd be horribly wrong of me) which include Sugared Apple and Berrylicious, I wouldn't class them as fall scents but I like them right now!

What is your favourite fall drink?
It's gotta be a hot drink, right? Well, I don't like hot drinks. Unless it's a hot chocolate, covered in a mountain of cream, from Starbucks. But I will settle for a Costa version, I guess.

What fall trend are you most excited about? 
Dark, vampy lips and nails. I'm a goth at heart and I love having the excuse to go around wearing purple lipstick and pretending I'm a vampire. 

What is your favourite fall beauty product?
I don't have a particular favourite right now, but anything dark and vampy. Berry and plum lipsticks are a must have during Autumn! 

What is your fall guilty pleasure?
At the moment, I've been off for a week - so my guilty pleasure has been literally being in my PJ's everyday, wrapped in a snuggie and staying up late with my Bear, watching crap TV - can you even class that as a guilty pleasure, or is that just me being lazy?

What do you like to do most in fall?
Be warm. Seeing as we're in England and the weather gets a little wet and cold this time of year, the first thing I do when I come home from work is go straight upstairs, light some candles, get the bubbles out and have a nice bath. It relaxes me for the rest of the evening and I forget that it's so miserable outside.

What is your favourite fall song?
At the moment, I can't get enough of Ed Sheeran - Thinking Out Loud and Owl City - Tokyo, but if you want to know what I'm listening to during Autumn, I have a play list here

What is your favourite fall food?
I actually really like toffee apples but I hardly ever get the chance to have one! I guess hot drinks, do they get classed as food? No, we already had a drink question. Okay, at the moment I'm loving soup! Especially on cold days at work, I look forward to warming myself up with a nice big bowl of Minestrone Soup.

What is your favourite fall holiday?
Halloween. 100%. As I've said, I love the chance to wear anything that's dark or scary. I do wish I was good with Halloween looks but alas, I am pants. This year I'm venturing to Fear Forest and I'm thinking seeing as I've purchased the 'Serpent' lipstick from Make Up Revolution (you can find this here) I'm going to go as something snake-ish/lizard like.. Need to get looking up some tutorials!

Before I finish, I tag;
