30 Autumnal Questions Tag

October 3, 2017

Hey Everyone! I found this tag on Instagram created by @fallwinterparty that I thought looked really fun to do and wanted to share it on here. Feel free to answer these questions yourself, if you’re reading this you’re tagged! Don’t forget to leave a comment down below if you are going to do this tag so I can read all of your answers!


The Questions:

1.) Flannels or Jumpers?

As much as I love both I would have to go with jumpers, because nothing beats a cosy jumper.

2.) Fairylights or Candles?

Candles! If it wasn’t a fire hazard I would light cinnamon candles in every room so that my entire house smells like autumn.

3.) What’s you’re favourite Halloween Movie?

That’s a hard one! I think my favourite would be Monster House, it’s such an underrated film!

4.)  Are you a pumpkin spiced junkie?

No, hate to say it but I’m not. I’ve never tried a pumpkin spiced latte because they just don’t appeal to me. I do love pumpkin scented things though, and actual pumpkins of course!

5.) Hot Chocolate or Tea?

Hot chocolate!!

6.) Rain or Fog?

Rainy days are the best, unless I have to leave the house in which case fog haha.

7.) Do you decorate your home for autumn?

I do a little bit, I bring out my autumn candles and I have a tall vase that I fill with pinecones, berrys and dried orange slices. I mostly just decorate for Halloween though.

8.) Favourite Vampire?

I’m not really sure, Edward will always have a special place in my heart from my teenage days. I also adore Mynin and Oliver from the Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine.

9.) Do you have any traditions for autumn?

Not really at the moment but I hope to have some when my boyfriend and I move in together next year.

10.) What’s your favourite fall colour?

I really love burgundy/wine colours to wear and it’s also my favourite lipstick colour.

11.) Do you like horror movies?

Yes! I love them but no one else I know does, so I can never watch them with other people.

12.) What’s your favourite autumn scented candle?

If this wasn’t obvious enough already….CINNAMON!

13.) Halloween or Thankgiving?

Since we don’t have Thanksgiving in the UK I would have to say Halloween.

14.) What’s your favourite thing about autumn?

The colours, the leaves, the weather, the cosiness, the fashion, the makeup, the dark nights, the TV shows, the decorations, the pumpkins, the food, bonfire night, my birthday and the buildup to Christmas.

15.) Favourite -ber month?

I can’t choose that! September has my boyfriend’s birthday and the start of Autumn, October has Halloween, November has Bonfire night and my birthday and December has Christmas!

16.) Do you prefer autumn or winter? Why?

I prefer autumn. Winter starts on the 21st of December and while I enjoy it up until Christmas the majority of winter in January and February just seems bleak. Autumn is just perfect.

17.) What’s your Halloween costume dream?

I would really love to be Tinkerbell one year but I never have anywhere to go on Halloween where dressing up is appropriate. If I ever have the chance to go to a Halloween party I will be Tinkerbell.

18.) Favourite witch?

Hermione Granger and Luna Lovegood!

19.) Where would you like to spend your Halloween?

I’ve always wanted to do one of those farm/festivals where you get to go on hayrides, have spooky tours and have things jump out at you at night, they seem so scary and fun.

20.) Scarf or hat?

Scarf, I’m not the kind of person who can pull off a hat very well.

21.) Favourite tree?

I don’t think I have a favourite tree, it’s not something I’ve ever thought about. Maybe a willow tree because they’re so grand and pretty or a conker tree since they were always fun as a kid.

22.) What’s your dream place to visit during autumn?

I would love to go to Disneyland and experience all the festivities there I’d also want to go to New York or Yosemite as they look absolutely beautiful in autumn.

23.)  Vampires or Zombie?

Vampires! I’d love to be a vampire, I wouldn’t ever want to be a zombie.

24.) Which songs do you listen to in autumn?

I don’t really have particular songs I’ll listen to during autumn, I’ll mostly just listen to The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline soundtrack or Christmas songs.

25.) Bats or Spiders?

Definitely bats, they’re one of my favourite animals, I love going to bat caves and houses and seeing them fly above me. I once had a bat living on the side of my house, it was adorable!

26.) A walk in the woods or a walk in the mall?

A walk in the woods, at this time of year it’ll be so pretty.

27.) What’s your favourite autumn food?

Just anything with a ton of carbs and calories in, pasta, cheese, potatoes, cookies, wine, all the bad things to get that winter body ready haha

28.) Name a book that makes you think of autumn

IT by Stephen King always reminds me of Autumn, because the first time I read it I was sat at the kitchen table in the evening, listening to the thunder and the rain outside, and completely terrifying myself.

29.) Halloween party or Halloween movie marathon?

Movie marathon definitely, under a nice, cosy blanket with tons of snacks.

30.) Favourite item of clothing for Autumn?

I have a faux fur coat I got last year that I basically live in this time of year. I also really love fluffy, cosy socks.
