Fall Tag: a game of questions

From the twitter land my new friend Savanah Blake @Earthand_Water suggested and tagged me into a fall (Autumn in Scottish speak) game. A tag game is a great way to answer questions you wouldn’t normally share on your blog and also to connect with others.

Check out Savanah’s blog at Earth and Water here. She has a lovely blog and always posts inspiring and positive articles on self-care and self-development. It was fab of her to reach out and support me as a relatively new blogger.

So I am going to do my best on these questions which were created by Amanda Burnett, another blogger I am following on twitter for her beauty, lifestyle and a little bit of everything posts. I have tagged a couple of blogs that I have recently found. Check them out too.

Fall tag questions:

  1. What is your favorite fall drink?
    • It is still red wine. I don’t change this on a seasonal basis. I probably drink more espresso. I wish I liked a mulled wine. I can’t stand it though.
  2. What’s one thing you love about fall?
    • The air smells differently. Its an odd thing to notice – I get that. But for me in Autumn it starts to feel like Bonfire night. Do they even have that anywhere other than the UK (Its a Guy Fawkes thing)? If not I suggest everyone adopts it…remember remember the 5th of November.
  3. What’s one thing you don’t like about fall?
    • The potential of sleeping in due to dark mornings. Even when our clocks go back (yes another odd UK thing) it doesn’t help me get up for work.
  4. Are you a pumpkin spice fan?
    • I have no clue what this is. Am I missing out?
  5. What’s your favorite fall scented candle?
    • I can’t do strong spicy scents in the house so I stick with the summary candles. I do always light more candles at this time of year though.
  6. Where do you buy your fall candles?
    • TK Maxx or Lidl. Both places are great value for, well, for most things. Even the things you don’t want and of course buy are good value; kind of.
  7. What’s your go-to fall beauty product?
    • I am hanging on to my Versace red lipstick that I have had for years. It is a gorgeous deep red that I have never found elsewhere. I don’t use it much. This question has reminded me that I need to search for a replacement. They probably don’t do it anymore which may be my dissapointing thing about Fall this year.
  8. Your favorite fall accessory?
    • Hats. Any hat in my collection will do.
  9. What’s your typical fall outfit look like?
    • For work. Same as most seasons: a dress more often with boots rather than my normal high heels. Outside of work I am mainly in a great jumper and jeans with a beautiful Stuart and Christie (oldest tailor in Edinburgh) tweed jacket. Sounds posh eh? Third favourite is jogging bottoms and trainers (not so posh).
  10. Apple pie or pumpkin pie?
    • Neither. If forced – apple.
  11. What’s your favorite Halloween/scary movie?
  12. Do you have a fall tradition?
    • We decorate the Christmas tree we all planted with halloween decorations. That, a fire pit, wine and nibbles is a definite tradition with the neighbours.
  13. What’s your favorite fall food?
    • Being picky means I don’t really change my food choices. I didn’t know there were fall foods.
  14. What are your plans for Halloween?
    • Hopefully the annual party with my neighbours. It may not work this year though due to a break up, a moving out and a few other oddities going on with them all. I would probably blog about it if I wasn’t scared of them reading my views on the whole thing.
  15. Do you plan on dressing up for Halloween?
    • I haven’t got an outfit. Yet! I might have to get out the favourite vampire one. My favourite did change for one year to the PVC skeleton one but I would need to accessorise with a tutu this year to hide my slightly increased, and now reducing, backside.
  16. What’s one thing your thankful for?
    • That I laugh every day in work despite it being a serious job.
  17. Halloween or Thanksgiving?
    • Halloween! Of course; we don’t do thanksgiving here.
  18. Favorite Thanksgiving food?
    • Any halloween type sweet. Turkey is for Christmas. At least I hope it is as my parents may go rogue and try to feed me duck (or something equally disturbing to my pallet).
  19. Have you ever participated in Friendsgiving?
    • No. Should I know about this?!
  20. Have you already taken fall photos?
    • Not yet. Edinburgh is beautiful at this time of year. I will add that to my goals for the month. To be fair I don’t have a goals list. I will do it anyway 🙂

  1. What a lovely autumnal tag – I love it! I’m feeling very autumny this year, so this is ideal for me. Much as I love autumn, I do agree with you on the dark mornings being a downside – already I have cycled to work this year in the dark, pouring rain (fun). But I’ll take it for all the other good stuff! Thank you very much for the tag – I don’t know if I’ll do this soon, but I will try to do it at some point 🙂

    1. Thanks for the comment and for appreciating the tag 😊! Well done on the cycling. I can barely pull myself out and into my car for the work commute (the rain here has been horrendous too). But yes, Autumn is a great time of year.
