I was tagged in the Autumn Questions Tag Post by Norma on her blog http://normalinnet.com/ 

I’m pretty stoked that she thought of me, since we only just discovered one another on Twitter, and also, my blog is a total of 6 days old. This is going to be a fun little post, and I hope you enjoy reading it!

These are the rules you should follow if you’ve been tagged:

  1. List these rules in your post, so that everyone is clear on what to do!
  2. Include the creator’s link (www.laurenannbeauty.com) and also whoever nominated you!
  3. Answer the questions and tag at least 3 other people (maybe include their links to help with their DA?)

What’s your favourite thing about autumn?

This is a hard one for me, because Autumn is my favorite season flat out. When pressed, I would have to say, the colors. Mother Nature is wearing her most fiery gown this time of year, and it is breathtaking to behold.

Are you taking part in #Blogtober?

Not formally no. I know the minute I commit to something like this, I will flake. It’s just a thing I am often guilty of.

Favourite autumnal drink?

My favorite Fall cocktail is a creation I made that I call ‘The Equinox’. It consists of herbal tea, honey whiskey, orange bitters, and a secret ingredient that I won’t tell you about now, because I’m planning a post for later this month in which I will feature this drink and I don’t want to spoil the surprise!

Favourite autumn candle?

My favorite scents are always woodsy, and this time of year is no exception. Give me some Sandlewood, or some Cedar and I’m a happy lady.

Favourite item of clothing for autumn?

A duster cardigan sweater is my must have for the crisp Autumn weather.

Do you decorate your house/room for Halloween/autumn?

I actually change up minor things in my home to reflect each season. For example, I have a besom on my front door, and it gets adorned with different things depending upon what time of year it is. For fall, it’s dressed with fallen leaves and acorns. I do other things such as this throughout the house. Table centerpieces, around candles, ect.

What do you do on Halloween?

Being Pagan, I celebrate Samhain on Oct. 31st. If you are not familiar with this Sabbat, in a nutshell, it is the Pagan New Year. The end of the harvest. There is a bit of a spooky aspect to it as well, as it is believed that the veil between the physical and spiritual world is at its thinnest during this liminal time. It is generally thought of as a day to help guide lost souls to their rightful path for the afterlife. In recognition of this belief, the tradition of carving gourds and putting candles in them to light the way for wayward spirits was a common practice that we still honor today when we carve pumpkins!

  1. Great post, darling! And don’t thank me, please. I love supporting new bloggers, and you’re doing great so far.

    I was already familiar with the pagan origins of Halloween. (I used to be a goth in my teenage years and I loved reading about all things spooky.)

    Sincerely,

    xx. Norma
