the autumn tag

{autumnal things} via chevrons & éclairs

These little blog questionnaires are not something I ever really do. I’m always one that keeps to my little corner on the internet, doing things that are most convenient and comfortable for me. Though, it is my favorite of all seasons, and with this move to London many of you have ever so kindly reached out via social media or email to ask how my transition is going. It seemed only fitting to share a bit about myself. And so this post is a bit about myself and all my likings during the autumn season…

what is your favorite seasonal coffee drink?

After my cup of black americano in the morning, I usually refrain from consuming more caffeine throughout the day. Though autumn is always accompanied by a brisk breeze, and a chai tea is just enough warmth and sweetness.

what accessories do you look forward to wearing?

Scarves and cardigans with skinny belts! I always love the darker palette too. I go for a darker shade of nail polish, preferably taboo by Chanel. Outfits are adorned with leopard print flats too.

any seasonal music?

A bit of Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and the like never hurts. Though a personal favorite evening tune with a glass of a dry Chianti would have to be Autumn in New York.

what candles will you be burning this season?

I love candles this time of the year, especially with a cup of tea and a new novel. My favorites for this time of the year are Figuier, Baies and Roses by Diptyque and Rodolfo by Tocca. And as autumn transitions into winter, I do love the natural perfumes of an evening fire.

your favorite makeup look

For the day, a simple swipe of mascara, a peach-kissed cheek, and a subtle wine stained lip. The simplest cat-eye and the boldest, reddest lips for the evening is perfect.

what do you love most about autumn?

…the idea of a new season, rejuvenation. The changing colors in the foliage, bundling up in the mornings and evenings, the darker hues and the romantic sunsets spilling over the cities. To me, it’s the most magical time of the year.

what are you looking most forward to this autumn?

That’s quite easy, spending my very first autumn in London! I have seen so many photographs of the transitioning season in the city and have experienced winter, but autumn is what I’m most excited about. The city is back to normal after the filtering of tourists in the summer and friends and family on holiday that it just seems like the season brings routine.

  • It was so nice to learn more about you! This is what I love about Autumn, the new season, this is the time that most changes take place (for me September was only changes! Good in the end, but I had to prove my trust to universe once again!) This is my favourite playlist, if you like this kind of music: http://8tracks.com/miramane/blues-around-midnight

    • Aw!! The make up one really was inspired by your tutorials and you’ll be proud, I bought a naked palette today! Hoping to make good use of your blog now. And thank you for the sweet compliment 🙂 x

      • Aww really? n__n You’ll love the naked palette, specially for this season! 🙂 X

  • These answers are so lovely and classy, indeed! I am so happy you will be experiencing your first autumn here in London – hopefully it won’t rain TOO much! And I know what you mean about playing ‘the classic oldies’ during this time of the year – I love putting on Frank Sinatra, whenever it’s grey and cold outside (like today!). xo

    • I actually don’t mind the rain! I mean I do, but not when there are pretty views of London to look at 🙂 And Frank Sinatra sounds absolutely perfect right about now! x
