Autumn Tag

Anyone on Myspace remember when the latest craze was to answer surveys, which spread like wildfire round peoples profiles? It's a big like Deja Vu, as I've spotted a few questionnaires on Blogger, although they are now known as Tag posts. So I am tagging Vicky over at Pretty Witty Things who has joined in with an Autumn Tag Post, and decided I would do one as well.

For Autumn:

1. Favourite Thing About It?

I'd have to say 'nice' Autumn weather. I'm not a big fan of grey skies, and wet and windy misery, so when I wake up to surprising blue skies, and sunshine it really lifts my mood.The other day I was sitting outside a cafe by the river, having a drink with my parents in the sunshine, and it was lovely.

2. Favourite Drink

I've never been able to stomach tea or coffee, so my drink of choice would have to be hot lemon, or boiled water - which may seem a bit odd, but I find it refreshing. Occasionally if I need a boost then I may be naughty and reach for Mountain Dew or Lucozade.

3. Favourite Scent/Candle

Lavender probably wins hands down for this one because of its relaxing properties, although the Mango Yankee Candle that my sister bought me as a present leave a lovely scent in my room as well. I'm not a fan of anything too overpowering, but much to Dad's disgust I like the Ginger and Vanilla Air Freshener in the bathroom too.

4. Best Lipstick

I'm not sure I really have one to be honest, although No7 Lip Gloss Sets have been a cheeky treat in the January Sales, and I also have a Benefit Lipstick in a shade called Breathless that I love.

5. Go To Moisturiser

Hmm I better admit here that I am not always the best at keeping up a skincare routine, I also have a small haul of body butters etc. that I've been given as pressies so sometimes I just put one of those on. I also use Nelsons Pure and Clear range, or Nivea (thanks Dad for that one).

6. Go To Colour For Eyes

I'm a fan of glitter so I have a couple of pots of that which I like using when I go out, I am also getting good use out of a Front Cover set of gold shimmering tones which I reviewed a while back. Basically like anything that glitters or shimmers and isn't grey/black. I DO NOT get on with v.dark colours.

7. Favourite Music To Listen To

I have supported Take That since I was 13/14, apart from that my music tastes vary from 70's Disco, to 80's, classic soul, a bit of Hip Hop and Indie/Pop, soft rock, and Disney soundtrack songs. Current favourites are Matt Cardle, Lawson, and songs such as 'I Don't Trust Myself' - John Mayer, and 'Chasing Stars' - One Republic.

8. Favourite Outfit To Wear

Jeans, a nice pair of comfy flat boots, a top with a bit of bling, a comfy cardigan, and a stylish scarf. I have a bit of a scarf addiction - be it cosy or fabric.

9. Autumn Treat

At the moment I need to stop buying food when I am out and eat much nicer treats (i.e lunch) at home. So then I would have more pennies to buy an Autumn treat - which would probably be a lovely jumper or wintery leggings/dress.

10. Favourite Place To Be

On a nice day, in the park with my sisters gorgeous fluff ball Wilson, and my nephew Joey who is now old enough to go on the swings.

If anyone else fancies joining in this Autumn Tag and keeping the links and answers going, that would be great. Link back to me or maybe leave a few comments below.

The Christmas Holiday By Phillipa Ashley Book Review

I apologise now for any or all mentions of the word Christmas in this blog post, but with a lot going on in life and work I just have to go with whatever calls to me in my reading pile, which this time was The Christmas Holiday by Phillipa Ashley.  Released last year, this book will always have a special place in my bookish heart because I helped with some crafting inspiration for it, and to see my name in the credits of this paperback is something I will always treasure. I was so excited to see how and where my ideas were used, but managed to control my impatience and not skip any pages. Although I have been a member of Phillipa's Facebook group for a while, this is my first read of hers  (have another in my reading pile) so I opened this book with a mix of anticipation and a slight fear of the unknown - I really wanted to love the book I helped with! And love it I did. It made a refreshing change to read a novel set in the Lake District, and also one which wasn't just a stere

Hobbycraft Lino Printing Online Workshop Review

 One of the things that has been great to see now we have come through the worst of the Covid pandemic, has been companies continuing with the online activities they launched during the lockdowns. Hobbycraft now offer a wide range of workshops online and in-store through the year, and I recently took part in an online lino printing workshop, so I thought I'd blog a bit more about what's on offer and the workshop I took part in. What workshops are on offer?  These vary through the year, and can involve seasonal, adults, and kid's workshops in-store and online. If you click on the workshops you are interested in finding out more about, you can find out about what's included in the price, what you'll learn, and the available workshop dates, there's also the opportunity to request private events for groups. While I'm writing this, there are workshops on Cricut, watercolour painting, knitting, paint pouring, seasonal wreath making, using clay, sewing, and a new

Hocus Pocus 2 Film Review

Halloween is one of my favourite times of year for films, and I've loved all the witch and wizard magical, spooky-themed films since I was young. I was really looking forward to seeing Hocus Pocus 2, but I had no idea what to expect from the sequel. Would they pick up where they left off in 1993, move on a bit but with a strong connection to the original, or do something completely different? This Disney + release turned out to be the latter, and I found myself watching a modern-day Salem on screen. The old town is now a 'historic district' which has the air of a novel tourist attraction, complete with a mystical magic shop which presents the story of Salem and the Sanderson Sisters as some kind of commercial entertainment enterprise - hear the story, buy some magical merch.  The detail in Gilbert's shop and his stage show presentation are very apt for the modern day, and the feeling that the Sanderson sister's legend has become less powerful and more humorous myth
