I love Autumn Tag!

Hi Guys! Gemma here!

So I seen this tag floating around a few blogs and YouTube and thought I would give it a go - The I love Autumn Tag! I know there are a lot of different versions of this but I used the same one as Sabrina from the fabulous http://www.alittleobsessed.co.uk/.

1. Favourite Autumn lip product?
- For the majority of the year I have chapped lips, not exclusively in the Winter and Autumn. Which is the ultimate pain, no one likes chappy lips! So through out the year I constantly use the Lush Lip Scrubs - my favourite being the popcorn flavor but I do love the bubblegum too.I cannot wait to get my hands on the red Santa one that is out for the Christmas collection! The lip scrubs definitely leave my lips silky smooth and remove the ugly chapped lip look. Its my holy grail product. For my Autumn lip colour, it is with out a doubt between MAC's Up The Amp & MAC's Verve.




As you can probably tell, I broke my Up The Amp the other day, heartbroken! Both shades are perfect for Autumn in my opinion as this season is definitely the transition to darker lip colours and I love it.

2. Favourite Autumn nail polish?
My favourite Autumn nail polish is probably Barry M's 'Lychee' which is the 'Gelly' Formula. I have to be honest I'm not the biggest fan of Barry M but I am starting to love the 'Gelly' polishes. 'Lychee' is just a simple nude colour and I feel it makes my nails look as if they have been professionally done. (With half the effort and half the price!) I know that dark nail colours are more favoured by others in Autumn, However I have always leaned towards nudes. I also really enjoy Revlon's 'Stormy Night' which is a slighty taupe shade.

3. Favourite Starbucks drink?
Unfortunately I'm not a big Starbucks fan. I do not like coffee and I always feel like their hot chocolate tastes watered down. I know the Pumpkin Spiced Latte is almost like a cult favourite international and it smells AMAZING. If only I liked coffee! With all that being said, my boyfriend Sam, had a Caramel Frap the other day and I actually didn't find it too bad. 

4. Favourite Autumn candle?
My favourite ever candle, regardless of season is JellyBelly's 'Toasted Marshmallow'. I always have one of these burning as I just love the smell. You guys have to try it if you haven't. The other day Laura & I must have spent hours smelling candles and we stumbled across the Yankee Candle Halloween collection and I fell in love with the 'Candy Corn' scent. I am kicking myself for not buying it.

5. Favourite autumn scarf or accessories?
Without a doubt my favourite scarf is the one Laura got me for my birthday! (not sucking up here!)
It is a gorgeous tartan scarf that is different shades of nudes and white. It goes with everything and keeps me so cozy. Unfortunately I can't show you guys it today as I let my sister borrow it. Another favourite accessory is a Christmas pudding hat I got from River Island last year. I LOVE it, it is amazing. I do feel like I have to wait until December to wear it though.

6.Haunted House, Haunted Hay Rise or Haunted Corn Maze?
I think this question is more aimed at American's as I've never even heard of the last two. However for so many years I've wanted to go to a Haunted House, ever since I read about it in a Guinness World Records book when I was around 13. I just think it would be so cool! 

7. Favourite Halloween Movie.
No questions asked - Hocus Pocus. I know everyone will probably say the same but Hocus Pocus is one of my favourite films ever. I can't put in to words how much I do actually love it. Bette Midler has been one of my idols since I was little, she's the definition of a legend to me. Nothing better than carving some pumpkins with the family and then making some hot chocolate, getting cozy on the couch and watching Hocus Pocus.

8. Favourite Candy to eat on Halloween.
I don't have a particular favourite if I think about it. I wish I lived in America so I could get some Candy Corn! When I was a kid I used to hate when people gave out Monkey Nuts (which I have now heard is a Scottish and Irish thing). I used to think - we only want sweets, not nuts!

9. What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
A Mental Hospital Zombie! I can't really describe it, so I will post a picture after Halloween!

10.What is your favourite thing about Autumn?
It sounds odd but I love the crisp air! I love changing my wardrobe from the summer and getting all my cozy jumpers and accessories back out. I also love being able to constantly burn candles again!

So that is all my Autumn Favourites! Do any of you guys agree with any of them?
I tag everyone to do this tag! I'd love to hear what you love about Autumn!

Our First Post!

Hello!
We are two girls from Scotland who love fashion and after reading multiple fashion blogs and religiously watching beauty videos on YouTube we decided we would start our own little blog!

Gemma. 20. Libra.
Hey guys! I'm a beauty loving gal writing a blog wit ma bud. I am currently doing an Events Management course and I'm in my third year (yay nearly done!) I love films/tv shows & have a serious boxset collection - Saved by the Bell and Sabrina the Teenage Witch being the ultimates.
  I LOVE ADAM SANDLER and that basically sums me up in a sentence!
I am a serious M.A.C addict so apologies in advance for the amount of posts related to it!

Laura. 20. Libra.
Hi! I am a little obsessed with reading blogs so I'm excited to be writing one! I currently work full time in a balloon & party planning shop (yes really!) I have an unhealthy obsession with music and going to gigs - it's my favourite thing to do! The Maine & The 1975 are my faves! So expect a few posts from some gigs that I go to! I write tons of lists (ah ocd!!) and I hate being late for anything so arrive approx 15 mins early for everything!! I also really really don't like bananas.

So, I hope that gives you a little insight to us, and what to expect from our posts! We are both so excited to have our own blog after talking about it for what seems like years! 

We'd love to hear back from anyone who reads our blog!
So feel free to leave us a comment introducing yourselves and we will be sure to write back or you can drop us a lil email at TartanFairytales@gmail.com!

Let's go...
