1. Favourite candle scent? 

OOO what a good start to a question, so many good candle fragrances out there. I think I would have to go with the classic cinnamon and apple as we are in December, I bloody love that smell.

2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?

I think it depends on the time day, obviously, in the morning I need all the caffeine to kick start my day, so it would have to be quaffee. Then during the day because I am a tea belly, I love it and it is comforting. Then followed by a lovely hot chocolate in the evening to settle down and get cosy on the sofa with a blanket, lovely jubbly!

3. What’s the best fall memory you have?

I like the light evenings before it gets dark and you just need to wear a jumper. I just like that feeling and the time of day.

4. Which make up trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner? 

I prefer eyeliner. I would paranoid wearing dark lips and everyone staring at me.

5. Best fragrance for fall?

Charlie – Red,   because I am classic like that and cheap too, lol. BTW my husband has Chanel aftershave, you can tell what kind of couple we are.

6. Favourite Thanksgiving food?

Anything carb based on comfort and enjoyment.

7. What is autumn weather like where you live?

It is raining, meh!

8. Most worn sweater? 

My lovely purple one from TU. It feels comfy, it is roomy and I love the colour. What more can I say?

9. Must-have nail polish this fall? 

Black like my soul 😉

10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?

I thought about this and I actually don’t mind either but if I had to chose it would obviously be jumping in leaf piles just for the fun of it.

11. Skinny jeans or leggings?

Ew, don’t do skinny jeans because I am too fat and skinny jeans are too uncomfortable for me, thank you very much! Of course, that leaves me to the faithful legging that is uncomfortable, cheap and can wear instead of tights because I don’t always like wearing them because wearing tights are a pain in the bum, fact.

12. Combat boots or uggs?

It will have to be combat boots if I had to choose between the two. One I don’t have the money for Uggs and nor would I want to buy, they’re just not my bag really.

13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?

Not really, go with what you love and don’t be sheep because you want to be like everyone else. If you genuinely enjoy it then go forth and embrace it.

14. A favourite fall TV show?

Come Dine with Me. Best programme on telly! That and Have I Got News for You.

15. What song really gets you into the fall spirit?

It’s raining men by the Weather Girls.

Help yourself to the tag and enjoy answering.

10 signs that Christmas is coming.

Hey readers,

I thought seeming as we are getting nearer and nearer to Christmas, that for a little sh*ts and giggles to help the lovely readers get in the festive mood I would do a light hearted post on sighs that Christmas is even that more closer to knocking on our door. Read below to get some more insight.

1. You know when Christmas is here when you witness the classic Coca Cola advert with the bright red lorry delivering the sugar laid drink to the family. Let’s face it no one cares about calories at Christmas fact! The advert also brings a cheerful jingle that gets stuck in your head, ‘HOLIDAYS ARE COMING’. If that isn’t a sharp reminder that Christmas is fast approaching I don’t know what is.

2. Everywhere you look in restaurants, fast food joints, shops, coffee shops everything has cinnamon in it from your coffee to the candles to even the toilet tissue to wipe your bum, cinnamons got your back, haha.

3. Soon as 1st November comes the music is blasting out in the shops with such classics about wishing it was Christmas every day. However, if it was Christmas every day you would be skint, fat and hallucinating about salad quite frankly.

4. You know in June you can see the Christmas lights in the street hung up but not turned on. Well news has it when it is the end of November boom them lights shine bright in the night.

5. Most of the shops consist of chocolate, more chocolate and a bit more chocolate.

6. If you flick through the channels you will notice a slight different to the presentation of some channels. Once channels just showcased normal stuff like for instance bog standard let’s say Now that is What I Call Music tv channel to ummmm…..you guessed it Now That Is What I call Christmas. Or, if music is not your thing then don’t worry there is Christmas movie channel 24 hours a day to get you excited with showcasing any old crap that resembles some sort of Christmas tone about it pretty much on repeat since November, Ho Ho Ho.

 True Christmas will show back-to-back Christmas films

7. Lets not forget the endless adverts that are more story based then actually about buying any products.

8. Hello pretty Coffee cups from the coffee shops that are decorated with some sort of Christmas paraphernalia such as the stag or a snow man. This is enough to get any insta w*anker in and buy that festive hot chocolate from Costa or any other popular coffee chain. The coffee chain bosses must be milking in it, haha.

9. Home is much cosier now that tree are up. The lights are twinkling and the cat is underneath the tree itching to pull down that rogue tinsel.

10. Of course Christmas is about gluttony and that you can be guilt free. Therefore let go and eat six mince pies, two hundred celebrations and the goose fat potatoes because you know why? It’s Christmas, treat yo self! It is in the unwritten rule of Christmas that anything that touches your mouth has no calories.

Gummy bear show, but why oh why?!

Hey readers,

if you have small children then you have been sure to be have had the privilege of having to hear the gummy bear song. If you haven’t heard of it then I beg you do not Google it or else you will never erase that memory from your mind.

gummy bear

well, my youngest absolutely loves the gummy bear song, it is dame awful. It involves the popular American sweet a gummy bear, bright green bear singing a dreadful song called I’m a gummy bear, yes I am a gummy bear.

Now if that is not bad enough, the producers go further and milk it for all its worth and have only gone and done a blinking show, called the Gummibar and friends. It is wrong and traumatic to have to sit and listen to it .

It is full of nasally singing, bright colours in the show and al the way through it is none stop singing. I need to wear glasses to watch it. The story is so silly and I quite like to punch the gummy bear in the face truth be told.

I just hate it, it is a crap storyline and clearly milking it for all it’s worth. Ok fair enough you have to earn the doh but you killing me slowly with getting my son hooked on it and that is all he ever wants to watch now. FML!

I just want to point out that Gummy bear really needs to invest in some bigger pants as every shot when he is wiggling his butt I see his crack, it is not attractive and he is constantly dancing or singing, which is so painful to my poor little ears and eyes.

One final thought, the song is attractive and a total earworm, whether I want it going round and round it appears I am these days permanently singing it.

Rant OVER!!!

An open letter to my TV

Dear TV,

I am writing this open letter to you to tell you how I am forever grateful to you. You are the backbone of our home, no joke of a lie. I don’t think I needed anyone quite like you in my life especially now that I am a mother.

You are central to our family, I class you as a helping hand and when I am in need you are always around to be available in my hour of need and kept me calm before I lose my rag.

Image result for i love tv

TV you’re so important because without you we would feel lost, you allow me to have that break to do things without the need to think how I am going to entertain children. I can get s**t done such as doing my cleaning like the washing or do the vacuuming without interruption from the kids. This may seem like a bad thing for a parent to do but you know what things need to be done or else the social services will come knocking on our door asking me why my home such a pigsty.

Not only do you help me in my hour of need but you bring us together as a family when we watching movies when it’s cold outside and we’re cuddling on the sofa mentioning popcorn. It is the small things that count and he’s will probably be kept as happy memories of what my boys did when they were younger.

TV You are providing me with entertainment, a fair few belly laughs. you’ve been a source of education to help me to understand, kept me entertained with thrillers and update on what is happening in the news.

Therefore, from the bottom of my heart, I love you my little 42-inch tv you will always have a spot in the middle of my living room.
