The Autumn Tag

Hey Everyone, sometime's I find blogging and keeping up everything can seem a bit full on and for my own enjoyment I need to break it up with some light hearted posts travelling around the blogger community! So no this is not informative at all, but if you like tags and maybe want to know a little more about me, here we go - The Autumn Tag.

Also stolen from the bestie over at
(It's fun to see how our answers differ!)

Ok we're talking coffees - what is your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks, Costa or Cafe Nero etc?
Obviously Pumpkin spice lattes. I am a chai tea latte fiend as it is so these are definitely my thing. I love anything cinnamon or spicy especially when it is freezing. I never say no to a coffee buzz either. I am starbucks loyal though.

my starbucks aint this good though! ha

Next up is accessories - what do you opt for, scarfs, boots or gloves?
I am seriously fussy with fashion related items at the moment. I think since my pinterest obsession came around I am having a twenties life crisis and I don't know what my style is anymore. I just bought matte black doc martens boots and I'm sure I will break those out as the bad weather hits but I still am a converse/trainer girl through and through. Then again to be honest when it's cold enough accessories are a necessity over fashion. But for now I'm not really a scarf etc person.

Then onto music - what is your favourite songs to listen to during autumn?
I don't have seasonal music I have mood music. I am HATING nearly everything on the mainstream radios at the moment (I got OLD) bar Sam Smith and Jessie Ware and they make me overthink my feelings and I always end up in a quite melancholic mood. Generally nothing beats 90s R&B and HipHop for me.

My last searches on my spotify where:  Iggy Azalea, Rick Ross (obsessed with the song 'ashton marten music'), Childish Gambino, Foy Vance, JLO (only the old stuff), Asap Rocky, Mariah Carey (only the old stuff), Snow Patrol and the Drive Soundtrack.

What is your favourite perfume during this time of the year?
I don't really have seasonal specific, still love me some Laura Mercier Ambre Vanilla.

Which candles will you be burning this season?
THIS IS MY FAVOURITE THING!! I love candles. Bought some ones shaped like skulls and they are helping my Halloween fix. But from Yankee Candle I got this one-

Fireside Treats Large Jar Candle - Yankee Candle

I want some more spicy, cinnamon ones too! Mama hates cinnamon though. 

What do you love most about autumn?
Halloweeeeeen & Fireeees! Doing special effects, I am constantly dying on instagram at all the amazing Halloween looks. (Follow me btw, search rebeccadurrans) The makeup community is boooooomb at this time of the year. I also love watching Tim Burton movies. BEETLEJUICE IS MY FAV EVERRRR, closely followed by The Nightmare before Christmas. Getting all cosey in the warmth of the fire and watching movies is the best!

Favourite make-up look?
Everybody says the dark lips trend but for some reason I'm going through a dark lips don't look good on me phase! Always love a red/orange/gold smokey eye though. Also loving lots of eyeliner, I shopped my own collection and fell in love with Mac Smolder, never thought much of it before! I have started enjoying wearing black eyeliner in my waterline for a more smudgy smokey look.

What are you looking forward to most this year?
I don't have much specific that I am looking forward too. I've had a difficult time of it recently in every aspect. But in the bigger picture, I am really looking forward to working twice as hard and progressing in my career. I am only as the start, it's very difficult and there are many barriers that I need to work through with time. I have a lot of goals I want to achieve and I am the type of person who will refuse to settle. So really I am just looking forward to seeing how my path progresses.

They tell you if you really want something, like really want it, anything is possible.

I hope you like the more personal posts I do, thank you for the support. xxx
