Sweater Weather Tag xXx

I'm going to do another tag today... (why not I like them) and it's the Sweater Weather tag!! Here we go...

1. Favorite candle scent?
I love a bit of Red Velvet Cake by Yankee Candle. Not sure it's specific to sweater weather but it makes me feel all warm so it's number 1 for me :)

2. Coffee, Tea, or Hot Chocolate?
 I do love a marshmallowy hot chocolate but it has to be tea for me. Nothing better than putting your feet up with a huge sugary mug of tea when you come in from the cold!

3. Do you switch up your makeup routine for the season?
 I tend to use darker browns on my eyes and go for a bolder lip, without the bright light of summer I think there's a lot more room to experiment.

4. Favorite Thanksgiving food?
 I don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in the UK but I did spend one in LA with friends and I thought the pumpkin pie was delicious!!

 5. Hats or scarves?
 Scarves! I love a cute hat but you can wear a stylish scarf everyday. Hats can give you 'hat hair' - not a good look.

 6. Most worn sweater?
I have a pink and white striped one that I've worn so much it all stretched out of shape! I wear it in this video here.... (It was also my first ever video!)



 7. Must have Fall nail polish? 
OPI Visions of love....


 8. Football games or jumping in a pile of leaves?
Football????? Really??????? Anything wins over that :)

 9. Skinny jeans or leggings? 
Skinny jeans. Leggings aren't quite thick enough for me and I prefer tights with a nice skirt or dress if I'm going to go for anything other than jeans.

10. Boots or Uggs? 
Boots. Uggs make me feel too slouchy, I just want to laze around. I love winter/autumn boots, comy yet stylish...

11. What is your #1 favorite thing about Fall? 
Am I allowed to say my birthday? It's in October... :)

12. Do you have a song that gets you in the Fall mood or just a song you're loving at the moment?
There isn't any one song... and as we're nearing Christmas I'm going to pick my most Christmassy song that I always turn up on the radio.... Have yourself a merry little Christmas - the Judy Garland version if you're wondering.

 13. What is the Fall weather like where you currently live?
Well it's been VERY cold, but it's only going to get colder over Christmas. Yesterday we had super fast winds in the UK which meant lots of falling leaves and even some flooding. But today it has all calmed down and we even had a little sunshine. It made all the leaves from yesterday look very pretty.

And that's it! I tag you! and let me know if you have anymore requests....

See you soon...

Christmas tag!

I decided today to do a Christmas tag. Hoping you enjoy it and I tag you to get in the spirit! 1. Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic? I'be had both in the past and I have to say, I don't actually feel strongly either way on this one. The decorations are the important bit! The pros and cons kind of balance out. This year I will have a real tree as I don't have a great deal of storage space where I'm living. 2. You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick? Absolutely a mint hot chocolate. Not a huge fan of coffee and they are delicious. 3. Whats your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree? I love pale pinks and silver. A HUGE amount of bows and glitter. Colour wise I like soft and understated but glitz wise I go all out! 4. Giving or receiving? Absolutely giving. Don't get me wrong, I'm not one to turn down a pressie but nothing beats the feeling of finding the perfect gift for someone and seeing how excited thy are to get it. Only thing is it takes me forever to choose what to get, so I trail round the shops for hours on end and I'm not such a big fan of that part. 5. To mince pie or not to? Well I've been having a mince pie after dinner every night since they hit the shops in November, so I think that answers that question! How can you not? And one things for certain, no matter how old I am, father Christmas is having one on Christmas eve. 6. What's your traditional traditional Sunday lunch? Everything! As much as I can pile on my plate. Any trimming you can think of we have it. 7. Christmas day fashion: I am highly stylish of course on Christmas day... I wear my pyjamas! I always work everyday before and after so its my day to just chill out, eat loads and look a mess. 8. What's your favourite Christmas song? Doesn't every girl love a bit of Mariah??? 9. What's your favourite Christmas film? Elf!! If you haven't seen it yet you need to go watch it now. It actually is strong competition for general favourite film. So what are you waiting for.... Go watch it! 10. Open presents before or after lunch? You are a very brave person if you think you can stop me from opening my presents the second I sale up! So there's my take on the Christmas tag. I would love to see yours. Until tomorrow Bye! Xxx
