Hey guys! Today I’m going to be doing the Sweater Weather Tag that I’ve seen floating around this fall. I wasn’t exactly tagged to do it by anyone, but I’m going to be a rebel and do it anyways ;)
1. Favorite candle scent?
To be completely honest, I don’t really know! I didn’t bring any candles with me to London, and I haven’t gotten around to picking up any for my flat here, so my life has been empty of candles for the past month :( When I was still back home in September, my favourite candle was London Calling by Bath and Body Works. It smells deliciously of tea and lemon, and was very appropriate at the time, as I was getting ready to leave for London!
2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
Definitely tea! I don’t like coffee, and although I enjoy a nice cup of hot chocolate every once and a while, tea is definitely my favourite hot drink! Recently I’ve been drinking a loooot of tea – at least 3-4 cups a day, and I think even up to 6 cups one day!
3. What’s the best fall memory you have?
Gah this one is hard! I don’t think I have any particular fall memories that really stand out for me, but I’ve always loved jumping into leaf piles, so I have a lot of happy memories of that!
4. Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?
I don’t really wear either of these trends, as I usually keep my makeup fairly simple and natural, but I think I’m going to say dark lips. I feel like winged eyeliner is popular year round, while dark lips are definitely more of a fall/winter trend. I don’t think I’ve ever worn a dark lip, but I think that it looks amazing when paired with a cozy fall outfit, so I may just have to go pick up a dark lipstick to try out! If you have any recommendations for what brands / colours I should check out, tell me in the comments!
5. Best fragrance for fall?
Fragrance as in perfume, or a smell in general? Since I’m not a huge perfume person, I’m going to go with the latter! I really love the smell of leaves in the fall, like when you’re walking through a forest or park and the air is just filled with the smell of leaves <3 Oh and also the smell of a fireplace burning is also really comforting! Oh! Also! Maple syrup being made! Around where I grew up there were a lot of maple sugar bushes, and sometimes we would go and the smell of maple sap being turned into maple syrup was just heavenly!
6. Favorite Thanksgiving food?
Definitely mashed potatoes and turkey. I just love mashed potatoes all of the time because they’re so delicious! As for turkey, I used to only ever eat the white meat, and I didn’t love it, but then I tried the dark meat and omg it’s so much better! It’s so juicy and tasty and ahhh now I’m craving turkey :P
7. What is autumn weather like where you live?
Back in Canada, autumn weather is cold, I guess? Once the leaves start falling the temperature drops as well, and it’s time to bring out the jackets and long pants and boots! This week in my hometown, the daily high temperature is supposed to range from 3-9*C, and it’s going to be fairly cloudy and rainy. Thankfully, I’m not living there this year, and autumn in London is looking to be a lot nicer! This week in London the daily high ranges from 13-18*C, which I am very happy about! I don’t like the cold :P
8. Most worn sweater?
My most worn sweater is definitely my oversized blue cardigan that I got from a thrift shop in the men’s section. It’s so comfy and cozy and warm and I just love it <3 You can see me wearing it in my travel outfit post.
9. Must-have nail polish this fall?
My nails have (surprisingly) been bare for the past few weeks, but I’m looking forward to pulling out 350 Wined Up from Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri line. It’s a lovely shimmery wine colour that I featured in my Holiday Nails x4 post last year.
10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Definitely jumping in leaf piles! As I mentioned before, jumping in leaf piles is one of my favourite things to do in the fall, whereas I’m not a huge football lover.
11. Skinny jeans or leggings?
Usually I would say leggings, as they’re super comfy, but recently I’ve been wearing skinny jeans a lot! I find that people in London dress a lot smarter than in Canada, so I’ve been inspired to switch my regular leggings or sweatpants for skinny jeans. Which still isn’t super smart or anything, but it’s progress!
12. Combat boots or Uggs?
I’m not a huge fan of either of these styles, but I’m going to say Uggs because they’re comfier and warmer!
13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
Personally I don’t really like the taste of pumpkin, so I’ve never tried a pumpkin spice latte or anything, so I don’t know if it’s worth the hype. I think I’m just going to stick to my chai tea lattes <3
14. Favorite fall TV show?
I haven’t really been watching much TV lately, so I don’t have a favourite fall TV show! Although Agents of Shield has started up it’s second season recently so I definitely need to get on watching that!
15. What song really gets you into the fall spirit?
I don’t really change what I listen to based on the seasons, so I can’t really think of any songs that feel really ‘fall-y’ to me :/
So there you have it, the Sweater Weather tag! I’m not going to tag anyone in specific, but if you want to answer these questions then post a link to your post in the comments so I can read it!
