01. Favourite Starbucks drink?
I can't remember the last time I got a Starbucks but we used to go a lot at university - I studied in the North so it was nearly always freezing and there was a cosy one on the way to our lecture theatres - I used to get a Caramel Macchiato, but if we're talking autumnal drinks and the whole 'red cup' thing, I'd go for a Toffee Nut Latte or the Honey & Almond Hot Chocolate. I've never tried a Pumpkin Spice Latte but I love the Gingerbread Lattes!
02. Favourite music to listen to?
All of the feel-good songs of summer get pushed aside in favour of more folksy, acoustic music. This Autumn I've been listening to two James' - Bay and Vincent McMorrow.
03. Autumn scent?
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle is my perfume of choice all year round, but I do love Yves Saint Laurent Belle D'Opium in the colder months and have my eye on Black Opium, too. They're dark, warm and spicy - a welcome change from sweet, summery scents.
04. Favourite Autumn lip product?
Ooh, toughie... think I may have to choose more than one on this question. Any deep red is a must in my books, especially if it's wine or berry-toned. Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss in '107' seems to be everyone's favourite, and I'm no exception - MAC 'Diva' is another beautiful deep red. I think matte lips look gorgeously autumnal, and at the moment I'm loving the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet's, notably 'Nude-ist'. Rich purplish shades like MAC 'Rebel' look super pretty, too. Plus an amazing lip balm to take care of your pout!
05. What do you love most about Autumn?
For me, Autumn is the best season. I embrace the fashion, as pieces such as ankle boots and cosy scarves are so up my street, and I love thick black tights and layering chunky knits. The style is of course a result of the weather, which is pretty darn ideal too - the air is crisp, the leaves golden and the last remnants of summer still cling around meaning that whilst you may be on the hunt for the perfect winter coat, you don't actually need one yet. Not forgetting the fact that it means Halloween, Bonfire Night and 'the big C' are near!
06. Go-to Autumn accessories?
Leather gloves, tartan scarves, statement jewellery. Bobble hats are an obvious choice but I would like a felt floppy hat like this Whistles number this year, as well as a smarter evening coat. A pair of sparkly heels for the party season are a nice addition, too - I think these are pretty fun, or a pair of classic black courts with a little something extra, like these.
07. Favourite Halloween movie?
It has to be everyone's childhood favourite Hocus Pocus, doesn't it? I also used to love A Simple Wish staring Mara Wilson from Matilda, too - I'm not sure if it's technically a Halloween film but it has witches in it, so fair deuce. That being said, I'm a fan of horror films and am always down for a jumpy thriller or chilling ghost story - you bring the popcorn.
08. Favourite Autumn nail polish?
Nails Inc's 'Victoria', described as a "deep cherry red", has been my favourite for years and years - literally since I was about fourteen! It's a stunningly striking shade that always looks chic and wonderfully wintery. My current pot is in the 'gooey' stage, so I must pick up another! I think nude nails look polished all year round too; Essie 'Mademoiselle' is pretty.
09. What are you most looking forward to this Autumn?
First and foremost, putting my electric blanket back on my bed. It's just the best. Once I've done that, I can move onto enjoying everything autumnal - cosying up in front of the log fire in button-down pyjamas, crunching through leaves on walks, having a pint in a cheery pub, comfort food, bold brows and deep lips, ice skating and getting excited about Christmas!
