I’ve been seeing this post around a lot lately, and I thought that it would be fun to do it myself, as I love autumn and everything that goes with it!
What is your favourite candle scent?
I don’t light candles all that often, and my sister prefers diffusers as she’s scared of open flames, however I do love the Red Velvet Cake candle from Yankee Candles – it smells exactly like the cake, and it’s just so good!
Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
I do like tea, however drinking anything with caffeine in (at any time of day) will stop me from sleeping at night (it’s ridiculous) – so I tend to drink a lot of hot chocolate when I’m cold.
What’s the best fall memory you have?
When I was little, our village had a bonfire & fireworks display every Bonfire Night, and it was so much fun – however it got too expensive to run, so they don’t do it any more. I remember the parade through the village in the evening, with the Scouts and Guides carrying burning torches that they then threw on a pile of wood and old furniture when we got to the field. It was so much fun, and something that I really miss.
What’s your favourite book that you’ve read this fall?
Fevre Dream by George R. R. Martin – it’s an older one of his that is set on Mississippi riverboats during the 1800s, oh and it’s a vampire story!
Which makeup trend do you prefer; dark lips or winged eyeliner?
Dark lips, definitely – I just love how they look, and I have a huge list of lipsticks that I want to buy this autumn!
Best fragrance for fall?
I only really wear one perfume, but I think it’s a good autumn scent – Dot by Marc Jacobs.
Favourite Thanksgiving food?
We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK, but we do celebrate Bonfire Night, and the food you eat then is great! I particularly love toffee apples and toasted marshmallows!
What is autumn weather like where you live?
Early autumn is generally quite nice and warm, and then it gets colder, but stays fairly dry – nice crisp mornings with frost on the ground.
Most worn sweater?
I seem to get a new one every year, but at the moment I’m loving last year’s burgundy knitted sweater from New Look.
Must-have nail polish this fall?
I already mentioned in my Autumn Wishlist that I really want Essie’s Bahama Mama.
Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Leaf piles – it’s so much fun! We used to get in trouble at school for destroying the leaf piles, but they would put them on the paths, not the grass, so everyone had to walk through them anyway!
Skinny jeans or leggings?
Skinny jeans – always, no matter the season, I will be wearing skinny jeans.
What is something that nobody knows about you?
I really struggle to motivate myself to get my work done – I always do it, but it might not be as good as it could have been as I can always find several other things that I could be doing with my time that aren’t really as important!
Combat boots or UGGs?
My combat boots are actually made by UGG – they have a soft fur lining on the sole, but otherwise are just regular boots. I would always pick combat boots over regular UGGs though – I need the support and waterproof-ness.
Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
As someone who does not like pumpkin, I would say that it isn’t – I just don’t get it; and it’s not a big thing in the UK anyway.
Favourite fall TV show?
Is Supernatural out in autumn? I don’t know cos we get it later in the UK, but I love it anyway. I don’t really watch many TV shows – YouTube and motorsport all the way!
What song really gets you in the fall spirit?
I don’t really know what the ‘Fall Spirit’ is, but I love listening to Halloween-y songs; Ghostbusters (Kasabian’s cover version), Transylvannia (McFly), Zombie (The Pretty Reckless) etc.
I really enjoyed doing this tag and reading other people’s answers!
Hope you all have a beautiful day,
