The Sweater Weather Tag

I’ve always been a fan of the cooler months, and I’ve always loved snuggling up in warm clothes when it’s chilly outside. As such, the ‘Sweater Weather’ tag seemed quite appropriate to me – No one’s tagged me but I’m just going to do it because I want to (I’m not going to tag anyone, just do it if you want to, I love too many blogs to just pick a few!)

So here goes:

1. Favourite candle scent:

I’ve always liked candles but mostly for the way they look rather than the way they smell – It’s bloggers and vloggers that have made me lust after gorgeous smelling candles. This year I have two, my massive ‘Winter berry; one from TK Maxx and an amazing one called ‘Fig Noir and Blackcurrant’ from boots: 

2. Coffee, tea or hot chocolate?

Hot drinks are important to me all year round, not just when it’s cold. I love love love tea, I enjoy coffee from time to time and I love a proper hot chocolate when the mood arises. But tea is my most consumed out of all of them, I drink it black, with sugar.

3. What’s the best Autumn memory that you have? 

As I said above, I just enjoy Autumn and winter so I have lots of nice memories but one that I remember very well is Ethan, when walking him home from the park, refusing to walk any more and just deciding to sit in the Autumn leaves and thrash around like a loony.

(Going through all my pictures of him to find this one makes me realise I don’t take enough pictures of him anymore, this must change) (Even if the reason is because he’s a pain to photograph)

4. Which make-up trend to you prefer: Dark lips? or Winged liner? 

I love winged liner but I’m not very good at it and I love dark lips but I’ve just not been going for the bold look recently. This year, in the cooler months, I’ve been loving darker purple/berry shades but in balmier, glossier, more sheer formats such as:


Beauty UK ‘Posh pout’ in ‘Sugar Plum Fairy’ | Bourjois ‘Color Boost’ in ‘Plum Russian’ | Revlon ‘Super Lustrous gloss’ in ‘Berry Alure’
5. Best Fragrance for Autumn?

I’m not sure what’s on trend because, when it comes to scents, I just like what I like but this autumn I’ve been loving these two: 

Katy Perry’s ‘Killer Queen’ | The Body Shop’s Vanilla body mist
6. Favourite Thanksgiving food. 

We don’t have thanksgiving over in the UK so not one I can answer – I’m loving food far too much at the moment, though, so probably for the best, haha

7. What is Autumn weather like where you live?

Well, as said above, I live in the UK so it tends to be quite dreary. But there are days when it’s crisp and fresh and those are the days that I love.

8. Most worn sweater? 

This one:

My cream cable knit from Primark – Cost £12 and it’s so warm and comfy, I wear it a Lot.

9. Must have nail polish this autumn? 

Models Own ‘Amethyst’ Velvet Goth polish | Barry M’s ‘Countess’ from the Royal glitters collection
10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?

I don’t tend to do much of either but Ethan loves jumping in leaf piles (see above) so I’d definitely pick that.

11. Skinny Jeans or Leggings?

I’m quite new to both of them, a couple of years ago it was all baggy jeans and combats for me so both are a bit of a revelation. That’s why I can’t pick one over the other – The added strength of skinny jeans is nice but leggings are soo comfy and knitted ones soo warm!

12. Combat boots or Uggs?

I have some cheap primark boots that I love and some fake Ugg style boots from primark, too, though they’re mainly used as slippers. I’m mostly still loving my trainers but boots are good for outfits where the trainers don’t work.

13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?

I’m going to assume this is something from the US, sorry, I don’t know.

14. Favourite Autumn tv show? 

The great british bake off – That was the only thing I watched during the Autumn I think. Now, during the winter, it’s Masterchef.

15. What songs really get you in the Autumn spirit?

I don’t have anything specific to Autumn but I’ve just been loving listening to all sorts from my i-pod when dropping off and picking up Ethan from nursery.

When it’s icy/snowy and wintery, though, Nightwish always seem that little bit magical, always liked listening to them in that sort of weather. 

A lot of those were quite autumn orientated but I think a lot of them easily have similar answers to if you were talking about Winter so that works for me. Love to see if any of you do this tag, let me know if you do, I’d love to see your answers.
