i love sweater weather | part one

*all pictures taken from my tumblr*

When 'milkyte4' tagged absolutely everybody in her 'sweater weather' tag, I knew I couldn't resist. In the past few weeks I've become much more appreciative of winter and everything that comes with it, from snow to the new Christmas ranges in both Starbucks and Costa, if I'm perfectly honest I'm becoming a bit of a fanatic about winter. It may be because of the lovely summer we had, but I'm really looking forward to snuggling up, watching movies and drinking tea.

Favourite candle scent?
It has to be the new scent from Yankee Candle, the salted caramel one. It's absolutely lush and just reminds me of cuddling up and watching telly. I can imagine it burning in one of Santa's dens while all of the children rush to meet him, aw I'm so soppy.

Coffee, tea or hot chocolate?
Hot chocolate all the way! I absolutely love hot chocolate at the moment and have had at least two a week from about September onwards... on Monday I had two hot chocolates in one day, oops. But I suppose it's okay, because I had to walk to Costa to get one of them haha.
What's the best Autumn memory you have?
I honestly can't think of one. I do like looking at all of the leaves falling from the trees though. That can be my favourite memory. Jumping in orange and red coloured leaves while wearing my little wellies (which then progressed to brogues and frilly socks as I got older)
Which make-up trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?
It can't be dark lips because I don't usually wear any products on my lips, the only one I use is the Soap and Glory lip plumper because I like the fizzy feeling it has! So winged eyeliner, I'm so into it at the moment but keep adding too much of a wing and end up looking like a drag queen. Oops. *wipes make up off*
Perfect book to read?
My favourite books are by Giselle Scalon and are called The Goddess Guides. They're all about fashion and make up and food and they're amazing. But seen as though Catching Fire is coming out next Friday (woo!) I'm going to say The Hunger Games series. Such detailed writing which takes you right into Katniss' world and aw, I just love them.
Best fragrance for Autumn?
I've fallen in love with Honey, the new Mark Jacobs perfume. It's sweet, but not overpoweringly so, and according to the bottle it has 'sparkling notes of orange blossom and a hint of honey,' which is weird because I'm not a fan of orange smelling things, but this perfume is lush.
Part two will be posted tomorrow (yay) | do you like reading tag posts?
Love Olivia x
