1. OK, we’re talking coffees – what’s your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks or another coffee shop?
We don’t have Starbucks where I live anymore and I’m not sure the difference between the autumn-winter ranges but when it was cold in Tokyo I loved the iced gingerbread latte. Otherwise, I’m happy with normal iced coffee. Yes, I drink it iced all year round. ;)
2. Accessories – what do you opt for: scarf, boots, or gloves?
Definitely boots. I bought some fake uggs in Tokyo this December and can’t wait to wear them now it’s gotten cooler! I got a black pair and a wine red pair. I also have black lace up boots that go just a little up the calves, as well as Doc Martins with ribbon laces.
3. Music – what’s your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
I don’t think my music tastes really change that much due to seasons but I guess I’ve gone back to listening to more metal and classical/soundtracks again. All summer I’ve had jpop and kpop on non-stop. Something heavier or more soothing fits the season better.
4. Perfume – what’s your favourite scent for this time of year?
Doing this survey already makes me realise I do seasons all wrong? I was going to stick to my normal flowery fruity scent but I’m thinking now that something muskier or with more vanilla notes may be a better choice. Any good autumn scents to recommend, readers? ;)
5. Candles – what scents will you be burning this season?
Haha, damn this survey! I’m not a big candle girl and I just opened a peach scented aroma-beads container which is so not autumn at all. I think if I did have candles, it’d be vanilla all the way.
6. What do you love most about Autumn?
I love the cold rainy nights, wearing tights and boots, walking to and from uni without getting sweaty, eating roasted and long-cooked dishes, the leaves on the trees changing to radiant yellows, stunning reds and deep burgundies and, when it’s windy, to see them fluttering across the roads and paths. Indulging in my favourite chai lattes from Bracegirdles. Everything getting darker and colder makes me just feel happy inside!
7. Favourite makeup look?
It would definitely have to be a clean pale base, slightly dewy, with filled in brows, eyeliner, blush that makes you look flushed and dark lips! I’m going to have to do an Autumn FOTD and post it, yes! I just like a simple, maybe a little cold-bitten look.
8. What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
No longer sweating all over the place when I’m shopping or at uni. Also being able to wear long sleeves, cardigans and hoodies again since I’m not a huge fan of short sleeves anyway.
And I tag anyone who feels like doing it. Surveys are fun lol.
