This tag has been going around for a while now. The questions vary between candles, lipsticks, nail polish, tea… So how could I resist?
My all time favourite one is Marshmallow Fireside by Bath & Body Works but I didn’t travel abroad this fall so I couldn’t get my hands on that one. Sandalwood Vanilla is my next in line. It is a sweet vanilla (dah) scent blended with sandalwood and I think I can smell some caramel in there? *sniffing* Yeah, a very sweet, divine scent!
Coffee, tea or hot chocolate?
Definitely not hot chocolate, although I love the taste everytime I drink it I feel sick afterwards because it’s too thick in consistency. I drink 2-3 cups of coffee everyday but this is more of a routine for me and not a beverage I truly enjoy. I have grown into a huge tea lover the past year after I discovered the Celestial Seasonings selection. Where I live we don’t really get a lot of brands and different flavours of tea and the ones we have access to are not the most tasty. I have been loving Chai tea and Apple Cinammon for the afternoons and Sleepytime Vanilla for unwinding before bed.
What’s the best fall memory you have?
Moving to the UK. That’s where I experienced true fall weather! It was late September and it is the whole concept of moving to a different country all on my own and meeting new people from all over the world. Until now, the best autumn I’ve ever experienced.
Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?
Dark lips because I tend to wear winged eyeliner all year long but I can’t pull off a vampy lipstick during the warmer months.
Best fragrance for fall?
Warm Vanilla Sugar by Bath & Body Works; smells exactly like it sounds, very sweet and the vanilla scent is very strong.
Favourite Thanksgiving food?
Well, we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here but from what I’ve seen they have some pretty awesome dinner over there! I definitely love mashed potatoes and turkey stuffing which we make for Christmas day. Funny story: I once ate all the chestnuts that my mum has roasted and peeled to put into the turkey, so we ended up having a chestnut free stuffing! It was so ideal that I didn’t even have to peel them and I thought it was so thoughtful of my mum!
What is autumn weather like where you live?
We haven’t been experiencing real autumn until a couple of weeks ago. It was really sunny and warm this year and it was even too warm for a sweater. However now it is pretty chilly, and it is a perfect autumn scenery with different leaf colours falling off the trees.
It's an H&M one that I got during the mid season sale for just 10€. It's the perfect sweater to wear with leggings since it is longer at the back so that you don't flash people while walking at the street!
Must-have nail polish this fall?
Well, that’s tough. I will go with Barry M Gelly in Plum because it was the first colour that I was really waiting for the weather to get cooler just to wear it.
Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
I’ve never jumped in a leaf pile and I confess that it seemed weird to me that people somewhere in the world do that! It sounds kind of scary because you can really get hurt since you are not jumping into a bouncy surface! I don’t really watch football games either, when my fiancé does I go to a different room and do my stuff! So the answer would be none!
Leggings or jeggings simply because they are so comfy. Especially with the trend right now with sweaters being longer at the back and shorter at the front you can were leggings even at work and get away with it! Not that I have ever understood why leggings are not acceptable as normal bottom clothing piece. My favourite pair this season is this Zara one which is a thick material and, as you can see in the photos, very high waisted. It has also got a design at the sides which creates the illusion of slimmer thighs. I got it from Zara for 20€.
Combat boots or Uggs?
None! I never liked Uggs and I hadn’t even purchased a pair when I lived in the UK and we had snow for like a month (it would seem like a reasonable purchase back then simply for survival purposes, but no!). Combat boots? No, it’s just not my style at all.
Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
Well, if we are talking about pumpkin spice latte, no it’s not! It’s just a very sweetened beverage that makes me feel sick, at least the one I had from Starbucks. If we are talking about the combination of the different spices, yes! I’ve been obsessed with pumpkin this fall and have baked a lot of different goodies that you use pumpkin spice in and I really loved the smell and taste. Also, they don’t sell it at the stores where I live so I've made my own for future baking!
Favourite fall TV show?
My all time favourite TV show is Grey’s Anatomy but this fall I got hooked on a new show called Hostages. Check the trailer here!
What song really gets you into fall spirit?
For starters I didn’t know there were fall songs! None to be honest, the weather getting chillier is the one that gets me into the fall spirit really!
That was my tag lovelies! I really enjoyed answering all of those questions!
