The "Spring" Tag

Happy Easter everyone!

I've been tagged to do "The Spring Tag" by the awesome Kerry @ Kerry's Nerdy Habitat! I'm very excited, but going to mix it up a little... since I live in the Southern Hemisphere, Spring is still a couple months away (WINTER IS COMING) So I'm going to do the "Spring Autumn Tag" :)

1. What’s your favourite nail colour for Spring (Autumn)?
The thing I love most about Autumn is the ability to wear darker colours and not be cooked when the sun shines. I don't wear nail polish, but I know as the weather gets colder it's time to take better care of your nails. Using hand lotions, minimising how much nail polish remover you use (it drys your nails) and just keep up you nail care.
The colours I'm loving for Autumn/Winter are pretty much the colours I love all year around. Black, Grey, Silver, Olive, Dark Green & Teal.
2. Best drink for Spring (Autumn)?
I'm not a fan of hot drinks (I always always burn my tongue or mouth) but as it gets colder, I go looking for drinks a little bit more substantial than water. Warm Milo, or hot chocolate! YUM!
3. What goes on your lips in Spring (Autumn)?
Lip balm, lots of lip balm! I'm heading to Perth next weekend to go to Lush, to get myself some lip scrub. In the cold weather my lips get very very dry and start to peel, it's gross! So I need to stock up on some lip scrub and a chapstick :)

4. What’s your favourite thing about Spring (Autumn)?
The cold. I love the brisk, clear, cold evenings. I can finally get my scarves out, I can layer my clothes, wear jeans without people judging me (I wear jeans in Summer too) and just snuggle up in bed on cold nights!

5. Best perfume for Spring (Autumn)?
I'm still rocking Marc Jacobs Eau So Fresh. It's my favourite (I bought 3 bottles when they were on special) It works all year around, but especially in autumn and winter, when you don't have to worry about covering the smell of sweaty yucks! (stupid summer)
6. What TV series are you watching the most at the moment?
Game of Thrones. Series 4 is being releases every Monday as we speak, I'm rewatching series 2 and 3... I'm very excited of things to come!
I'm also enjoying re-watching South Park, as politically incorrect and silly it is, I'm still loving it. It's bringing back memories of trying to secretly recording it, (because it was on past bedtime and dad didn't like me watching it)

7. Do you wear a different colour eye shadow in Spring (Autumn)?
Smokey eyes! Black, black and black! Rimmel and Nude are my favourite makeup brands. I don't wear much makeup but I recently discovered Scandal Eyes Eye Shadow Pencils. It's pretty much a thick eye liner pencil :D They come in dark colours, like matte black, sparkly black, forest green and dark blues, but also some really nice "frosty" colours, like icy blue and pink! I love them, it makes putting eye shadow on even easier!
I'm loving these 3 colours the most. I have the plain black and the green so far.

8. Do you change your hair for the changing season?
I recently had my hair cut very short. I love it, it's so easy. I'm not a morning person, and as the days get shorter it gets harder and harder to get out of bed for work. So my hair is usually not even brushed, just pushed back with a headband or a clip. Nice and simple :D

9. What kind of music do you listen do in Spring (Autumn)?
I started my Autumn playlist of Spotify, check it out! But my music choice doesn't change much between seasons. I don't listen to the radio, so I don't know what is popular etc. My music choices depend on what I hear when I'm on the net, what other bloggers post about etc.

10. What kind of fashion items/accessories do you opt for in Spring (Autumn)?
Scarves! Lots of scarves in all different colours. I usually wear black, so having a pop of colour from a scarf makes an outfit an outfit :D I love scarves, the quirkier the better!

May I present my Autumn Moodboard!! Inspired by flannel shirts, tea leaves, succulent gardens and moon shine!
