Hi guys, welcome to my first 'tag' ever. *Yay*
I really wanted to do this as a video as a treat for you guys but I just knew it wouldn't be the quality I wanted and didn't want to subject all you pretties to that. I don't exactly have the best editing software at the moment, just an old windows (extremely old) computer that works maximum 10 minutes if you exclude the start up time and constant freezing before shutting down again. There's not enough daylight hours outside school/work and also I had exams all this week, the majority of which I probably failed...ooops, but there will many more tags and of course there's always next Autumn so don't worry, there will be many videos in the future of Albatroz & Co.
Now, let's get started!
1. Favorite candle scent?
Funny story, I got a really bad cold last year that lasted way longer than I'd wanted it to and somewhere along the way, I must have damaged the veins in my nose somehow because I have only been able to smell faintly ever since. Now unless something is really close, really strong or stagnant, it pretty much goes unnoticed for me but before the whole incident, I'd have to go with Vanilla cause who doesn't love the smell of Vanilla?
2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
Hot chocolate hands down! Caffeine isn't really my thing.
3. What’s the best fall memory you have?
I'm not too sure what season this memory is but I'm almost certain its Autumn. Growing up in Ghana when it rains, it rains but I remember one time it was raining outside like crazy and all us kids ran out into the rain and started dancing and soon the adults joined in too and we basically had a dance session in the torrential rain as it drummed on our skins, laughing and unleashing our inner childish ways.
4. Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?
I'd have to say dark lips. I mean it doesn't work for everyone, ( least of all me), but when the shade is right for the person and they've got the confidence to pull it off, then they own it!
5. Best fragrance for fall?
Cashmere by Next. There's nothing more beautiful than the warm cosy feeling that it derives. That and the fact that I can smell it.
6. Hats or Scarves?
Both! I'm an extremely cold person. I have a friend that refuses to hold my hand without gloves because they are too cold!
7. What is autumn weather like where you live?
It's actually been a really weird Autumn here in Ireland. I'm not exaggerating when I say we've had better warmer nicer, generally more enjoyable weather this Autumn than we did during the Summer. However it did rain today, but that's okay because the rain is my favorite weather.
8. Most worn sweater?
My most worn sweater is a wine and black stripe/check jumper I scored in a closing down sale in England in a shop called Blue Inc.
9. Must-have nail polish this fall?
I don't really wear nail polish, I like to go natural but I always think pastels are perfect for just about any season.
10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Although I've never done it, I'm going to go with jumping in leaf piles. I mean I can play football any time of the year, but you can't jump into the beautiful autumn leaves any time you want.
11. Skinny jeans or leggings?
Skinny jeans all the way. Black ones.
12. Combat boots or Uggs?
Combat boots. You can wear some frilled chunky socks and create a killer look with it too.
13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
I've never had it :(
14. Favorite fall TV show?
I'm terrible with TV shows, I generally never really stick with anything but right now it Graceland although I'm already battling myself to finish it before heading on to Narcos because I know if I leave it now, I won't be going back.
15. What song really gets you into the fall spirit?
Although I've been listening to The Weeknd NON STOP and I think everyone should check him out, I'd have to say Sweater Weather by The Neighbourhood will always have this title ( no pun intended).
So there it is, the first and by all accounts not the last. What would you have answered to these? I'd love to know.
Till next time my pretties xxx
