Tag ~ Sweater Weather

I am pretty sure everyone knows that I am a true winter baby, part of that includes loving autumn and it just happened that Kiah from Kiah's Adventures has tagged me to do the sweater weather tag!




Favourite candle scent?
Surprisingly my favourite candle scent at the moment is one I got mid-way through September from B&M of all places in the scent Frankincense and Murr and it smells AMAZING!! It's really nice as it's not too overpowering when it's lit in the same room as you, just something subtle.

Coffee, tea or hot chocolate?
I don't tend to drink just one of those in autumn, I tend to switch them out and as weird as it sounds I will have a coffee in the morning then drink tea during the day and either have tea or hot chocolate in the evening.


Best autumn fragrance?
I really love vanilla-y scents like The Body Shop vanilla body mist and their smokey rose fragrance which has hints of tobacco in, it just smells amazing!

Best autumn memory?
My best autumn memory has probably got to be back in high school when I always used to walk to school and walk home with my best friend Olivia, it was about a 30-40 minute walk so we always had the chance to have a chat and a laugh.


Favourite book you're reading this autumn?
I'm now in my final year of my nursing degree and have to have my dissertation basically finished by the end of November so everything I'm reading is research-related and nursing-related.

Which makeup trend do you prefer - winged eyeliner or dark lips?
I've never really been a winged eyeliner girl (shocking I know!!) but I've always drifted towards darker lipsticks/lip-glosses, I normally suit the darker colour as apposed to light pinks etc.

Favourite roast dinner food?
Mashed potato and gravy, definitely! This tends to be my go-to meal whenever I feel unwell or can't eat properly.

What is autumn like where you live?
I live in the Wirral in England, the area of the Wirral I live in is right by the beach which means it's always windy and cold and rarely snows, I've always thought it must be something to do with the salt in the air from the sea (that's probably not even the reason but hey!).

Most worn sweater?
My most worn jumpers are two jumpers I got from Monsoon, one is a cream colour and the other is a mink colour. One is fitted all the way down whilst the other has a loose scooped edge at the bottom, they are both super cosy and comfy great for a long day of lectures in cold lecture rooms!



Must have nail polish this autumn?
I seem to have two must have nail polish colours, one is a slight blue toned pink by Morgan Taylor in Watch Your Step, Sister and the other is a mid-tone plum/purple colour by ELF cosmetics in the shade ' '. 

Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Football games don't tend to be as big a thing in the UK, where I live it's usually a game under-16's play on a Sunday morning on the football pitch in the park so I'll probably have to go for jumping in piles of leaves. However it's more like kicking leaves in the park when I'm walking the dog. 

Skinny jeans or leggings?
Definitely skinny jeans! I am not a fan of leggings at all, I think I've seen too many people wearing leggings with just a t-shirt and it just looks wrong. The only time I wear them is when I have a dress/tunic that is too cold to wear tights and even then I wear them with long boots so you can barely see them! I have been venturing into the land of jeggings this autumn though...

What's something nobody knows about you?
Not many people know/notice when they glance at me is that I had a birthmark in the left side of my left eye, weirdly someone once told me that whenever you have a birthmark is where you were killed in your past life.....I must of had a weird past life!!

Combat boots or Uggs?
I have Bearpaw boots that I wear when it gets really cold in my house, but I rarely ever wear them out of the house. It's normally only when it's super super cold and has snowed (on those extremely rare occasions) as they are supposed to be safe to wear in snow and don't get water damaged....and it actually works!! Out of the two above it would probably be combat boots to wear outside, I am more a fan of little ankle boots though.

Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
Definitely! I am love pumpkin spice lattes, although I don't know why but I thought it was actual pumpkin but I believe that its the spices like nutmeg, cinnamon etc and that's probably why I like it so much!

Favourite autumn TV show?
I don't really have a favourite autumn TV show, however I am currently loving Damages and Terra Nova.

What song gets your in the autumn spirit?
Weirdly the songs that get me in the autumn spirit are actually Christmas songs, it all roots back to high school as I was in the school choir and pretty much as soon as we started in September we started learning and rehearsing Christmas songs.

Hats or scarves?
Scarves, I rarely wear hats only when it gets super cold as normally if it's cold I will wear my big duvet coat from Monsoon which has a massive warm hood.

Favourite things about autumn?
Definitely all the Halloweeny and Christmasy decorations and celebrations.....and the lovely cold weather and autumn clothes of course.

Favourite autumn movie?
I don't tend to have autumnal movies, however I always seem to watch the Bridget Jones and the Harry Potter movies. They are generally ALWAYS on during autumn and winter in the lead up to Christmas.
