The Sweater Weather TAG

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

I've seen this tag go round on blogs and youtube channels before I even started blogging myself and I remember thinking that I would really like to do that tag as well, so even though it's nothing new and I haven't been tagged to do it, I still answered all the questions and would like to share them with you today.  

1. Favourite candle scent?

My all time favourite candle scent is vanilla. Boring you might think but I just LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Also I've heard Estée from Essiebutton talk about a candle called Bibliothèque which apparently smells like a library of old dusty books and history, I can only imagine how much I would adore that one!

2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?

TEA! I'm a tea lover and I drink it all year round but there's nothing more comforting than coming home on a cold autumnal day and sip a cup of tea. I drink either Yorkshire Gold, green tea, white tea or any herbal tea that takes my fancy at that moment. The only tea I don't like is fruity one.

3. What's the best autumn memory you have?

Probably Halloween as a child. I would have some friends over and we'd dress up as witches and magicians and tell each other scary stories before going out trick and treating when it got dark. I also really loved Saint Martin's Day which is celebrated in Germany on the 11th of November and children would go round outside at night with lanterns they made in nursery and sing songs and rhymes. I absolutely loved that when I was little!

4. Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner? 

Dark lips I'd say. I love a good burgundy or plum colour on the lips in autumn and winter. That being said I would also love wearing winged liner more often but I'm afraid I'm not the most talented person when it comes to feline flicks...

5. Best fragrance for autumn?

This is a difficult one! I wear my Chanel N°5 perfume only in the colder months but I'm not sure if it's a favourite... actually I think an A/W fragrance haul is imminent.. ;)

6. Favourite autumn food?

Anything that involves pumpkins really..

7. What is autumn weather like where you live?

It's the best! There are wet and windy days as well as crisp and sunny days which make you wanna go outside and walk through all those colourful crunchy leaves on the ground! Seeing that I really don't mind the rain autumn in Germany is the best.. if you can't stand rainy days, it's probably not for you..

8. Most worn sweater?

I am currently in love with this creamy number from H&M you can see me wearing in the picture above. It's so super cosy and easy to wear! But any slouchy knitted number will be dearly loved.

9. Must-have nail polish this autumn?

Essie's Wicked has been my favourite nail polish for autumn for a long time! It's a brownish red colour and it's so so pretty! Other than that: burgundy, grey, dark greens..

10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?


11. Skinny jeans or leggings?

Skinny Jeans. I wear Jeans a lot and leggings for me are mostly something I wear at home when I want to get comfortable. I do love a good tights and dress combo though.

12. Biker boots or Uggs?

Biker boots all the way! A good pair of biker boots works with every outfit and who wouldn't want that?

13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?

I love a good pumpkin spice latte! So much so that I recently uploaded a post letting you in on how to make your own homemade pumpkin spice latte! I urge you to try it. Click here to find the recipe.

14. Favourite autumn TV show?

I spend a lot of time binge watching TV series in the colder months. It's so nice to just come home in the evening after a long day at work or uni, get into your cosy clothes, snuggle up in bed with a cuppa and catch up on your favourite TV shows! I love watching Pretty Little Liars, Downton Abbey and Made in Chelsea to name only a few.. But recently I got Netflix and I have not stopped watching American Horror Story since. So this is definitely this year's favourite autumn program.

15. What song really gets you into the fall spirit?

There isn't one song in particular that I can think of right now but my obsession with Hozier is still going strong and I listen to his songs a lot at the moment so it's definitely a kind of autumn soundtrack right now. I'm also in love with James Bay's EP and so many more. Let me know if you'd like me to do a little "playlist post" for you letting you in on my current favourites!

If you liked this tag or love sweater weather as much as I do, please do this tag as well and leave me a link to your blog in the comments below so I can check them out!
