The Sweater Weather TAG.

Friday, 13 December 2013

I don't often do tags, but I had seen the sweater weather tag on youtube and then crop up on a few blogs so I thought I would put my two cents in and give it a go too! I'm fully in the autumn/winter/festive mode right now, the Christmas tree is up, chocolate is being consumed at a rather alarming rate and I'm just waiting for the moment I wake up and the floor is covered in a blanket of snow - or in my case a sprinkling of snow! Enough of the rambling.. lets get to it... 


1.Favouite Candle scent?
My favourite scent's not matter what time of the year is Vanilla! Without fail there will be at least one vanilla candle burning in our flat at any point! I know other people like the warm spicy scents but I really cannot stand them. If I'm going for a 'Christmas' scent. It will be one of the sweet ones like Yankee Candle's Christmas cookie

2.Coffee, tea or hot chocolate?
I am a hot chocolate girl. With whipped cream and marshmallows please! I dont drink any tea or coffee, I just don't either, never have! 

3. What's the best fall/Autumn memory you have?
I have a bit of a shocking memory, but I guess one that sticks out in my mind is when Tom and I left to go live in New Zealand. We left the UK in October so it was just getting a bit chilly, it was a bit of a bizarre sensation to go to the other side of the world and it be the 'Autumn' months and we were walking around in shorts & t-shirts, sunbathing on the beach in December! We had such a great time there and if I could go back there to live I would in the heartbeat! 

4. Which makeup trend do you prefer dark lips or winged eyeliner?
Well we all know I stick to my pale/peachy pinks, so the answer to this would be winged eyeliner - even though I am yet to perfect the perfect flick! I do try my best, I can do winged eyeliner on other people fine, but when it comes to doing it on myself I make a right mess of it. If I do manage to do it accurately it's normally a complete fluke! 

5. Best fragrance for fall/Autumn?
I swap around the same perfumes throughout the year, so I don't really have specific Summer and winter scents. However I do tend to reach for Lacoste Touch of pink more than others during the colder months. 

6. Favourite Christmas food?
Well, this may come to a shock to you but I don't like 'Christmas Food'. My Christmas dinner is a pizza... and I'm not even winding you up. It's the truth. I have a pepperoni pizza, some pigs in blankets and maybe a bit of turkey on the side! However, saying that I LOVE the chocolate tins, I tend to eat all the varieties of Galaxy from the Celebrations one - and I wonder why i told have a nice toned body... 

7. What is the autumn weather like where you live?
Cold and windy, and if we are lucky we get snow. For the last week or so I've been saying 'Oh it feels like it should be snowing' meaning it's really cold and the air is crisp! I can just picture the snow around my feet! 

8. Most worn sweater?
Like most other people I went a bit mad for the extremely fluffy jumpers that are available on the highstreet at the moment. I'm a weirdo and I haven't turned the heating on in our flat yet, so wrapping up warm is a must! I have both the jumper and cardigan versions. They keep me so warm! 


9. Must have nail polish for this fall/autumn?
Anything sparkly! I do opt for darker shades this time of the year, but I cannot resist a bit of sparkle! Any brand will do but I have these two Deborah Lippmann nail polishes which are SUPER festive and very glitzy! I love them!  

10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Well I do like going to football, but nothing beats finding a big pile of leaves and running through them. Let's be honest here! 

11. Skinny Jeans or Leggings?
Both?! Skinny jeans are a big favourite of mine, I know everyone bangs on about Topshop Leighs or Joni Jeans but for me it's all about Miss Selfridge Ulta soft jean. I friggin' love them! However for comfort I do like leggings. They are easy to throw on, you don't have to worry about over eating as they are more flexible than denim, bring on the cake! - Doing this tag though has made me realise I need to get myself some new I go to have a browse online.


12. Combat boots or UGGs?
You might be someone who loves them, or maybe you hate them. But there's no denying that UGGs are SO comfortable and are just what I need when it gets cold! I'd always had the cheaper versions but since getting the real deal a few months ago I wouldn't go back to those. So snug and warm! 

13. Is Pumpkin spice worth the hype?
Couldn't say, I haven't tried it. 

14. Favourite winter TV Show?
Well I wouldn't say I had a favourite TV Show but I know we are fully into the winter season when XFactor and I'm a Celebrity is on our screens! For me I prefer films. I stocked up on Christmas movies the other week and I am truly getting into the festive spirit watching them all! What's your favourite Christmas movie?

15. What song really gets you into the winter spirit?
Anything Christmasy! The classics like Wham! Shakin' Stevens, Wizzard and of course you cant say no to a bit of Micheal Buble! 

I hope you enjoyed those little snippets! I know its the 'thing' to tag people so I tag.... 

Much love,
