Sweater Weather You Tube Tag

I like to pinch tags from You Tube from time to time and answer the questions in text form. I loved this tag last year and have been waiting for the right weather to post it this year.

1. Favourite candle scent?
Yankee Candle’s Spiced Orange, no contest.

2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
Tea. But sometimes hot chocolate.

3. What's the best fall memory you have?
Bonfire night. It’s a very British tradition I know, but I love getting bundled up and going out to watch fireworks and warm up by the bonfire. The year our Australian friends were living over here we all went to the massive bonfire in Roundhay Park in Leeds which was awesome.

4. Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?
Dark lips on me, winged eyeliner on other people. If I try to do winged eyeliner on me I just end up with a smudged mess!

5. Best fragrance for fall?
Midnight Poison by Christian Dior.

6. Favourite Thanksgiving food?
We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in the UK, but as a general cosy food you can’t beat a sponge pudding with custard. If the pudding is jam roly poly it’s even better.

7. What is autumn weather like where you live?
Usually it’s wet and a bit chilly, but this year much of September, and the beginning of October, was beautifully sunny and unseasonably warm.

8. Most worn sweater?
One of my many polo necks – probably the black one. I live in polo necks come the cold weather.

9. Must-have nail polish this fall?
I don’t wear nail polish as it doesn’t agree with my nails. However, I do like a nail sticker and I have some lovely dark red ones by Mylene Klass that I got in the pound shop.

10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Jumping in leaf piles. But in reality I don’t do that (there’s never any big piles of leaves around, if there were they’d probably be wet, and I’m a bit old for that kind of thing now) so I guess I’ll have to say rugby games. I love going back to my high school to watch the rugby match between the school team and the old boys.

11. Skinny jeans or leggings?
Skinny jeans. Leggings are not trousers people, don’t forget that.

12. Combat boots or Uggs?
Combat boots. Unless it’s really cold, in which case, Uggs.

13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
I don’t know, I’ve never tried it (shh, don’t tell the blogosphere...they’ll kick me out!). I don’t drink coffee so I’ve never had a pumpkin spice latte.

14. Favourite fall TV show?
This year? Made In Chelsea (and what’s left of the Great British Bake Off)

15. What song really gets you into the fall spirit?
There’s not a song in particular, but around November time I start playing Enya’s And Winter Came album as a sort of pre-Christmas soundtrack. It’s wintery in a snow and candlelight way without being overtly Christmassy.

  1. I love bonfire night! We always went as kids then stopped as teens but now we have kids we've started the tradition again. Not sure I'll take the baby this year mind you.

    I also don't drink coffee & have never has a PSL. I don't get it anyway... Pumpkin in a coffee?!
