The Autumn Tag πŸ

I love Autumn, cool crisp mornings, foggy horizons, colourful crunchy leaves, candles and all things cosy. 

I thought it would be fun to do another ‘tag’ post as I feel like thise are quite fun to write and read! & they reveal a bit more about the person writing them, Me!

So without further ado, here is my Autumn tag πŸ‚

8 questions, here we go!

1. Favourite Autumnal lipstick:
πŸ’„I have recently discovered my little collection of berry toned lip products ready for this season (see below)

My favourite berry lip is the Bourjois Rouge Velvet liquid lipstick in the shade ” perfect for this season. 

For a more ‘everyday look’ I picked up a lovely nude with a purple tinge to it from Ptimark, its a bit more understated but still really pretty. 


2.
Favourite Autumnal scent:  I really love candles at this time of the year, they are just so cosy and I have a couple at home that I’m really enjoying. One is a vanilla cupcake candle which has a strong scent of vanilla and gives off cosy baking vibes ✌ The other is all about the berries, sweet and warming, 

I also picked up this beautiful candle holder/jar from TK Maxx last Autumn and I’ve got it out again. I love the Autumn leaf pattern, the colours look lovely when a candle is lit inside.

3. Favourite Autumn clothing: It has to be cosy jumpers, without a doubt! The obsession is real and I have added a few new ones to my collection this year, because can you ever have too many aye, whose with me?!

I also LOVE cosy pjs! Something that will come as no surprise to anyone who knows me well. I picked up a super cute pair from Sainsbury’s with this lovely woodland animal/ Autumn theme, adorable. Is there anything cuter than an animal dressed in knitwear… (nope!) 🐿🌰

…told you! (Adorable) 

4. Favourite thing about Autumn: The refreshing, crisp air (especially in the morning!) and definatly the colours πŸ‚πŸ The trees just look beautiful and they always make me smile, stop  and look.    

5.  Favourite seasonal beverage? I have been loooooving Options hot chocolate sachets recently, especially now that its much colder. My favourite flavours are the Strawberry and Chocolate Orange ones πŸ‘Œ 

& they are great if you follow the Slimming World plan as I do πŸ‘πŸ» Sachets range from 1-2.5 syns.

6. Favourite skincare products: I am loving my new moisturiser that I picked up a couple of weeks ago, its the Neutrogena Hydro boost gel cream. I have combination skin and this is so hydrating and perfect for using before bed. The colder weather isn’t great for dry skin so I hope this keeps my skin in tip top shape.

I’m also super interested in The Body Shops new range ‘Vanilla Pumpkin ‘ it sounds AMAZING, really Autumnal and I’m hoping to pick up something soon. πŸŽƒ

7. Favourite accessories: It has to be my Black watch scarf  (no idea what I’m talking about?!? Yeah, don’t worry I didn’t know the technial name for the green/navy tartan but there yaaa go!) 

I’m also loving my Mustard coloured scarf that my Auntie got me.

I LOVE bobble hats 😁 They are soooo cosy and look super cute & casu’ with any Autumnal outfit. The perfect Autumn accessory. 

Zoella has brought out a bobble hat in her new Zoella Lifestyle range, It’s grey with a bottle green bobble (fave colour alert!) So I can’t wait to pick that up. 

8. Favourite Autumnal nail varnish:  Some of my favourite nail varnish shades are dark bottle green, copper, red, burgundy and anything quite grungy and dark. A specific fave is a berry toned one by Barry M, the shade is ‘Raspberry’ and it’s my ultimate nail colour, and one of their classics.

I hope you enjoyed that guys!
See you again soon for something Halloween themed, let’s get spooky πŸŽƒ

Until next time,

The Harry Potter tag β˜‡

So, being the massive Harry Potter
Fan that I am I thought that I would do the Harry Potter tag. For those of you who don’t know what this is its just a list of questions either about you, or a certain topic, that you answer. I just typed ‘Harry Potter tag into Google to obtain these questions. 

To make it a bit more fun I asked my twin sister Sarah (my fellow Harry Potter enthusiast) her Husband Dan and my Husband Tim to answer the questions with me. I’ve used the abbreviations R for me (Roseanne) S for Sarah, D for Dan & T for Tim.

Let’s get into it!

1. Which is your favourite book?

R- Definatly book no 1, the philosophers stone. It’s so darn magical.

S- Book 1, the philosophers stone.

T- Book 4, the goblet of fire

D- The first one.

2. Which is your least favourite book? 

R- Mine is probably book no 5, the order of the phoenix just because i found a few chapters in the middle quite boring #grawp

S- Yeah the same, Order of the Phoenix because I hate Umbridge.

T- Book 1, the philosophers stone! (I couldn’t believe it when he said that! 😱)

D- The chamber of secrets.

3. Which is your favourite film?

R- 100% the first film for how magical it is and for the fact that it introduces you to the magical world. Like it serioudly makes me smile everytime I watch it (& think ‘Why can’t it be real!!’) and also the Deathly Hallows pt2 as this is where it all ends, it ties it all together nicely and is flipping epic.

S- Same as Roseanne πŸ‘ The Philosphers Stone & The Deathly Hallows pt2

T- The Goblet Of Fire!

D- The last one.

4. Which is your least favourite film? 

R- My least favourite is the Prisoner of Azkaban. I just don’t like the way it’s so different from the first couple, even some of the scenery and layout of Hogwarts changes, that annoys the continuity freak in me haha.

S- The Deathly Hallows Pt1 because it’s basically Harry Potter goes camping.

T- The Chamber of secrets, It’s just not as good as the others.

D- Probably the prisoner of Azkaban.

5. Favourite quote…

R- ‘It is our choices that show us what we truly are far more than our abilities’ either that or ‘Not my daughter you bitch’ πŸ˜‚

S- ‘It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live’ I’ve actually got this tattooed on my foot.

T-  I don’t have one… πŸ™ˆ

D- I don’t know any quotes tbh! 

Seriously guys!!! 😱

6. Favourite Weasley?

R- legit Fred and George, they are awesome.

S- Fred and George, cause they are twins and their mischievous and it’s really sad when one of them dies 😭

T- Fred and George.

D- I spose Fred cause he has that joke shop. (Poor George!!)

7. Favourite female character?

R- I love Molly Weasley, she’s great! Such a lovely motherly figure, kind, stern, funny and loyal. All hail mamma Weasley!

S- Molly Weasley because she’s awesome and she’s a nice mum to Harry even though he’s not hers.

T- Ginny Weasley, I don’t think Hermione is very interesting and she’s the other main female.

D- I only know Hermione so her I spose.

8. Favourite make character?

R- Snape! He’s a great character, so much depth. 

S- Dumbledore because he’s DUMBLEDORE!!

T- Snape.

D- Male, urm Dumbledores brother, he’s like an unsung hero at the end isn’t he.

9. Who do you think is the best villain?

R- It’s got to be Voldemort, he is pure evil, creepy as hell and just terrifying.

S- Snape! Because you hate him the whole way through when all along he was just good.

T- Draco, he’s just a bit pathetic isn’t he!?!

D- I’ll go for Track.

10. Which Deathly Hallow would you choose?

R- The invisibility cloak, the others are wayyy too dangerous really.

S- The invisibility cloak, cause then you can see what people are saying about you and freak people out. And you can get into places for free!!

T- The invisibility cloak, the other ones are kinda useless in the real world. (R- Harry Potter is real?! T- No its not Roseanne #sadface)

D- The cloak of invisibility.

11. Who is your favourite professor?

T- I can’t remember!! (R- Wasnt it Hufflepuff? T- I’m not sure tbh)

14. Which would your favourite lesson be?

S- Charms.

T- Transfiguration.

D- Learning to fly!

15. Who is your favourite Marauder?
