The Fall Tag or y’know… The Autumn Tag!

For the last few weeks I’ve been seeing this Fall tag doing the rounds on Twitter  and hoping that someone would tag me to do it but nope nobody did (yeah Billy no mates here, haha!)
So I took it upon myself to just do it anyway, rules schmules!

This Fall tag was created by the fantastic Lauren over at EllDuclos who I discovered when I joined her Facebook group, Boss Girl Bloggers. It’s a great group full of lovely friendly bloggers who bend over backwards to help you out if you need it! There’s always loads of tips flying about too. Check it out if you haven’t already, you wont be disappointed!

The Questions…

1. What is one candle you MUST light every fall?
I’m not going to lie, I’m not really a candle girl… I know, I’ve failed at Blogger life with that one sentence. BUT! I do like a bit of a sniff of them when I see them in shops. There was one I smelt the other week and I think it was called Vanilla Spice? I’m a big fan of vanilla smelling things so… yeah.

2. When you think of fall, what does it remind you of?
Going back to school, even though I haven’t been back to school for over 10 years… Anyone else miss going to Partners and stocking up on stationary???

3. What is your all time favorite fall/Halloween movie?
Hocus Pocus
I’m not a big lover of scary films AT ALL so Hocus Pocus is my limit at Halloween

4. What Halloween costume do you have in mind?
Do you know what, I’ve never dressed up for Halloween or been to a Halloween party! I dressed up as a witch when I was little like but that’s it.
If I was invited to a party I’d love to dress up as Cleopatra

5. What is your favorite fall trend?
Roll neck tops! I bought this gorgeous one from Matalan the other day!

matalan, roll neck, top, roll neck top, turtle neck, mustardBuy me here!

6. When you think of fall, what drink comes to mind?
Hot chocolate! When I was at a chocolate factory in Bruges in August (read about it HERE) I picked up 2 hot chocolate things. They’re chocolate on a stick basically and you put them in hot milk and stir them until its all melted in. They’re so yummy!

7. What is your go to fall beauty product? A must have staple!
I’m going to say a dark red lipstick.

8. Do you prefer apple pie or pumpkin pie?
I’ve never had Pumpkin pie but I don’t think I’d like it, I cant stand the smell of pumpkins! Apple pie all the way!

9. Do you have any fall traditions? If so tell us all about it!
No, not really. Only to watch Hocus Pocus and have as many hot chocolates as possible!

10. The moment of truth, is fall your favorite season?
It used to be!! But this year my head has been turned by the amazing Summer we had – I miss it so so much! Sorry Autumn…

Why a Plain Black Tee is Your Best Friend!

What a boring post you might be thinking… It’s just a plain black t-shirt. There’s not much to be done with that…
Well you’re forgiven for thinking WRONG people!

The lovely people at Tesco Home Panels sent me their black Ladies Scoop Neck Tee a few weeks ago and at first, yeah, I did think oh, what a boring thing to review… But I got thinking, they couldn’t have possibly sent me a better item of clothing for the coming Autumn/Winter days!

I love Supermarket fashion, I’m not going to lie. I love how affordable it is, how accessible it is and y’know what, they have really nice fashionable pieces! Tesco’s F&F is my favourite, closely followed by Tu by Sainsburys but to be honest, I’ll buy from any supermarket as long as I like the item!

Cotton Sustainability

This t-shirt that Tesco have sent me is made from 100% sustainable cotton, which if you’ve recently watched the Stacey Dooley documentary on BBC1, is such an important thing.
In the documentary we discovered that 15,000 litres of water is needed to grow the cotton needed to make ONE pair of jeans! That’s a HELL of a lot of water just for one pair of jeans, just think of how many litres were needed to make all the cotton garments in your wardrobe… Scary eh?

We saw Stacey drive across a desert in her documentary but it wasn’t a desert at all. It used to be the Amal Sea in Khazakstan which is now 3/4 dried up! It was shocking to see that local cotton producers had done this over a course of 50 years by tapping into the sea to keep their cotton fields supplied with water.

Tesco have fantastically recently pledged to using 100% sustainable cotton in ALL their clothing that they sell. Another reason to love my favourite store!
You can read about this on their own blog here.

How to wear the Tee…

Here’s a few outfits I put together using my black top

Denim shirt – Wish | Ripped jeans – Tesco F&F

Dress – New Look (SO long ago)

Skirt – New Look (3 years ago)

God I need to buy some new clothes it seems, haha! But you get the gist of what kind of outfits you could wear the top with so all’s good!

I definitely think I’ll be wearing this top loads over the autumn/winter, it’s just so versatile!

If you would like one yourself you can find them in Tesco’s stores, click HERE to find your nearest one!

 

Anyone else love supermarket fashion like me?

Primark Haul

One of the biggest #firstworldprobs for me is Primark not having an online shop. I mean COME ON, its 2018, I’m a millennial who doesn’t like interacting with the outside world and I’m an introvert to boot! I NEED online shopping to survive this life.

The other day however, my boyfriend took me to the absolutely enormous, heaven of a Primark in Liverpool to grab a few bits for our cruise next month – the absolute BABE. So for all you introverts out there who like to peruse what clothes Primark have in store at the moment (July 2018) without leaving your house, here are a couple of things I bought.

I must add that dozy me forgot to bring along my card so my guy kindly bought these things for me and I paid him back. BUT that meant that I felt I couldn’t buy everything I wanted to… Y’know that meme that you see floating about social media? I only went in to buy socks and came out with the whole shop – yep, that’s me. So restricting myself was HARD as I usually spend like £100 a go in there!

Primark Vest£3

I’d been wanting something in this gorgeous mustard colour for ages and this vest seemed perfect. I think I’ll be wearing it with a pair of white shorts for those days when we go on excursions.

 

Red Primark top£6

I bought this just to wear as something casual for walking around or maybe for the day we board the ship. Might wear it with the white jeans I got (see below).

 

Primark Bardot top£4

I’d bought a Bardot top ages ago when they first came out this year and I didn’t get on well with it, it kept annoying me with constantly creeping up when I lifted my arms.
I really wanted to give this style of top another go so I bought this little beauty and at £4 it wasn’t going to break the bank if it didn’t work out.
I actually wore this the other day and I bloody love it! It didn’t creep up as much as the other top I had and it actually suits me!

 

Primark playsuit£6

This is my favourite thing I’ve bought this year (apart from my iPhone). It fits so so well and again, I’ve found something that SUITS me.
I seem to suit clothes with a halter-neck best I’ve found, so I’m now also looking for a halter-neck dress to wear on the formal night on the cruise. So if any of you have seen any nice ones, throw those links at me!

 

Last but not least…

white jeggings£6

Sorry for the really crap photo of this, I really need to invest in some light boxes or something…
I simply bought this because I can wear basically anything with these, either dress it up or down.

Knowing me I’ll probably buy a couple more things to take away with me but I’m so so happy with every single thing I’ve bought.
