Autumn Tag

I love blog tags! They are a great way to get to know your blogger friends better. One of my favourite tags was the Christmas tag from a few years ago. I loved reading about fellow blogger’s traditions.
That’s why I love this Autumn Tag. As autumn is my favourite time of year, I love reading about other people’s traditions.

I discovered this cute Autumn Tag on Chronical Sunflower’s blog. It was originally designed by Ellduclos to kick-start her ‘Blogtober’ series. As always the questions are at the end of the post if you want to play along.

The Autumn Tag

Autumn Tag

  1. What is one candle you MUST light every Autumn?
    I always loved the Candy Corn candles from Yankee Candle. However, it seems to have been discontinued this year. Being replaced by Sweet Seduction. I am not too keen on the smell but love the new ceramic jar! Instead this year, I brought several Pumpkin Spice home fragrances in TK Maxx. Including pretty jam-jar candle and reed diffuser.
  2. When you think of Autumn, what does it remind you of?
    Whilst, most people might think about colder weather, falling leaves and cosy nights in! For me Autumn means Birthdays! My birthday is on Halloween and my husband’s birthday is two weeks later. So when the leaves start changing colour, I start planning celebratory nights out. And shopping for birthday presents.
  3. What is your all-time favourite Autumn/Halloween movie?
    I don’t really have a favourite autumn movie. However, we tend to watch a lot of box sets in the autumn. This year I am thinking of re-watching Gilmore Girls or Once Upon a Time. And dreaming about New England in the autumn!
  4. What Halloween costume do you have in mind?
    As I said it’s my birthday on Halloween, so I never get dressed up! We tend to have a meal or drinks somewhere. So I plan a date night outfit, rather than a costume. Saying that, with MCM London, the weekend before Halloween. I am planning a little geeky Halloween outfit to wear then.
  5. What is your favourite Autumn trend?
    At the risk of sounding basic, I love PSL! I have written before about some of my favourite Pumpkin recipes. As I said I have brought pumpkin spiced candles this year. Autumn is all about the Pumpkin Spice!
  6. When you think of Autumn, what drink comes to mind?
    Obviously, for me, it has to be PSL. However, saying that I am attempting to try some other autumnal drinks from different coffee shops this year. You can follow my efforts on Instagram.
  7. What is your go-to Autumn beauty product? A must-have staple!
    I am not a beauty blogger or a make-up addict. But when the weather gets colder, I reach for my favourite lip balm and moisturiser. Currently, my favourite lip balm is Marc Jacobs’ Lip Lock.
  8. Do you prefer apple pie or pumpkin pie?
    I am not a huge fan of pies! Plus I hate cooked apples. So I am going to say Pumpkin Cheesecake!
  9. Do you have any Autumn traditions? If so tell us all about it!
    Autumn officially starts once I have had my first PSL! Once the weather gets cooler, I dig out all my favourite cosy knitwear! In October, we start decorating the house with pumpkins, autumnal candles and fake coloured leaves. Towards the end of the month, Halloween decorations get added. Then it is birthday season! This normally involves a Jason and I having a nice meal, drinks with friends and a Sunday dinner with family.
  10. The moment of truth, is Autumn your favourite season?
    Yes!

Currently… November Edition

currently july

Currently Reading… Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel by James Luceno
As we are just days away from the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. So I am getting into the “rebellious” spirit. We have brought our tickets for a midnight screening and I have bought merchandise and am reading the prequel book.

Currently Watching… Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
During November, I have loved watching Westworld. But the month was devoted to the return of Gilmore Girls on Netflix. I originally took Friday off, for Black Friday shopping but instead opted to spend the day in “Stars Hallow.”

Currently Listening… Cashmere by the Swet Shop Boys
I have loved this album for a few months, but seeing it performed live in November has increased my love for it. I am hoping for more material from Swet Shop Boys next year.

Currently Loving… Hamilton Mixtape
As I mentioned in my post about Joy, this month I have been loving the pre-released tracks from the Hamilton Mixtape, I can’t wait for the release of the whole album this weekend.

Currently Feeling… Christmassy
Last weekend, was the “Tree Decorating Party” for our extended family. An annual tradition when we all gather at my in-laws house and decorate their tree, eat, drink and relax before the craziness of December. It marks the start of the festive season for us.

Currently Knitting… This month I finished my Denim Sky Cowl and loaned the completed cowl to Ling. So she could to display it on the Whimzy stall at Yarningham Wool Festival in Birmingham.

Currently Reading… I am still re-reading the Harry Potter books. I paused from the original series briefly this weekend to read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.


Currently Watching… 
I have re-discovered my love of the Gilmore Girls. When Netflix began streaming the show at the start of the month I immediately started to binge watch it. It had been a few years since I watched this programme and it was lovely to re-visit Star Hallow and my old friends The Gilmore’s.
Currently Playing… Like the rest of the world, this month I became obsessed with Pokémon Go! I also joined in the Pokémon Q&A on Epicfied blog, me and other geeky bloggers talk about our experiences as Pokémon fans.
Currently Loving… Trailers!
San Diego Comic Con was last weekend, after all the big announcements the internet for flooded with trailers for upcoming movies. One of my favourites was the trailer for the new Wonder Woman movie.

Friday Faves

fandom_friday

Instead of 5 Fandom Friday, this week I thought I would list my five favourite fangirl moments from this week. It has been an interesting one, the week started off a little shocking and then yesterday, news about several of my favourite fandoms appeared online.

  1. The Walking Dead Season 6 Finale
    Monday nights are The Walking Dead night in our house, we even watch The Talking Dead, to digest everything we have just seen. Needless to say, this season finale, has left us feeling completely numb. I know fans have complained about the open ending, but I didn’t mind the cliffhanger.
  2. Orphan Black Season 4

    I knew BBC America are planning on airing the newest season of Orphan Black in April, and I thought we would have to wait until September like last year.  However, it looks like Netflix will be showing it a few days afterwards, starting in the 15th. Until then this prequel teaser has me hooked.
  3. Death Note Remake
    It seems once every six months or so we get news about a Hollywood remake of Death Note, and every time I moan – we don’t need a remake! Over the years I have heard the strangest rumours from Zac Efron playing Light to Gus Van Sant directing (this did impress), the latest story ( you can read it here) is that Netflix have picked up the rights.
  4. Gilmore Girls Revival
    I am beyond excited that Gilmore Girls is returning later this year. I always felt let down by the final season, I’m not going to re-hash the issues, only to say I am glad the show didn’t run past it’s seven seasons. I cannot imagine post-grad Rory’s life and how this would still link into Star’s Hollow or how this would have been turned into a weekly show. Now, it feels right to have the show back and get a seasonal insight into the Gilmore’s lives. You can read more about the revival here, and it also looks like Sookie is coming back!
  5. Star Wars: Rogue One Trailer

    Obviously, the biggest news this week has been the Rogue One trailer. I could have written a whole post about my feeling on this!
  • Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso looks amazing, I am hoping Disney will realise we love strong female leads and adore merchandise on these characters even more!
  • Speaking of female characters, I was excited to see Genevieve O’Reilly back as Mon Mothma, as she has an amazing resemblance to Caroline Blakiston.
  • Contrary to everyone else, I don’t think Jyn is any relation to Rey. I think the rest of Rey’s story will be played out in episode eight (and maybe nine).
  • Likewise I don’t think Diego Luna’s character is Poe’s father.
  • Apart from a few overlapping characters (like in Star Wars: Rebels ), I think this story will not relate to the Skywalker Saga Anthology films.
  • As Grand Admiral Thrawn is meant to be re-canonized, I would like to think Ben Mendelsohn is playing him. Another theory is he will be Grand Moff Tarkin, overseeing the building of the Death Star.

What has been your highlight of the week?
Have you any theories about the Rogue One trailer?

Five Fandom Friday

OTP

This is my Missed One, catch up for the beginning of March (last week). Obviously, this will contain spoilers.

    1. Barbara Gordon & Richard Grayson (DC Comics)
      Batgirl & Grayson
      My OTP

      Whether this couple are Batgirl and Robin or Oracle and Nightwing, they are my ultimate pairing, “my first OTP.” Over the years, we have seen them go through a lot, her accident, the death of their mentor and even him faking his own death. Last year, there were some amazing storylines involving these two, The Convergence storyline, his return to Gotham and although in Future’s End it seems they are no longer romantically linked I am hoping the new Rebirth later this year may rewrite their future together.

    2. Logan & Veronica (Veronica Mars)
      Logan and Veronica
      The happy ever after couple

      I’m going to call these two my “the happy ever after couple” in the television series I was always Team Logan. Even though he was very immature in high school and still not ready to commit in college, in the movie he had grown up. The movie was the perfect ending for True LoVe shippers, plus we got to see Logan in his uniform!

    3. Rory & Jess (Gilmore Girls)
      Rory and Jess
      hope I get a happy ending couple

      I’m referring to this couple as my “hope I get a happy ending couple.” Like Logan Echolles in Veronica Mars, Jess was too immature in their relationship to realise what he had, when he had grown up it was Rory who was in the wrong place. As the new mini series is going to air on Netflix later this year, I am hoping these two will finally get together.

    4. Han & Leia (Star Wars)

      Han and Leia
      So Close
    5. I invested a lot of time reading the Star Wars Expanded Universe books, I liked Han and Leia as a married couple, and even more as parents. When I heard about Episode 7 (which would later become The Force Awakens), I was excited to see Han and Leia as husband and wife, I imagined little Skywalker/Solo children – I was thinking a mini Leia with pigtails. Whilst The Force Awakens didn’t disappoint, theirs wasn’t the happy ending I was hoping for.

    6. Wash & Zoe (Firefly)
      Wash and Zoe
      Too Sad

      Over thirteen episodes and a movie, it was impossible not to fall for this dysfunctional couple. Maintaining their romantic relationship onboard Serenity, surrounded by all the waifs and strays. Whereas Mal and Inara are the parents of the crew, Wash and Zoe are the loved-up cool aunt and uncle. Again they did not have the happy ending, I would have liked for this couple.
