Happy Monday everyone!
The start of another new week.
I know people tend to dread Mondays because it’s the start of the week, and it seems like FOREVER until the start of the next weekend, but let’s try making the best of it.
The start of a new week means the start of new opportunities to do things you weren’t previously able to do, always keep that in mind.

For today’s post, I thought it would be fun to keep the Fall-themed vibes going with a tag post about none other than Fall (bet you didn’t see that coming 😂). So this is going to be the Fall Favorites tag.
I don’t know about anyone else, but personally, Fall is pretty much my favorite season. Weather-wise it’s perfect because (ideally) it’s in between being warm and cool where you might not necessarily have to wear a jacket, but sweaters and cardigans will suffice. The leaves on the trees are changing colors and falling. The holidays begin to approach and so many other great things.
That being said, I’m going to be sharing with you guys some of my current Fall favorites, although some of them really haven’t changed much from last year or even from before that.
* * * * * *
- What is your favorite Fall scent?
I would have to say that my all time favorite candle scent is a candle called Home from Bath & Body Works. The scent is an amazing blend of warm caramel, vanilla bean and juicy pear…UGH. It smells amazing. I’ve actually had it for about 2 years and only light it once in a while because I think they discontinued this scent since I can’t find it anywhere anymore 😢
2. Favorite Fall Lip Color
Ugh there are SO many, there’s Lolita from Kat Von D, Kylie Cosmetics has a LOT of nice Fall liquid lipstick shades like Leo, Pumpkin, Moon, Love Bite, Ginger and Vixen that are all really pretty, Mac lipstick in the shade Captivating, etc. etc. I could go on FOREVER.
3. Favorite Fall Blush
My favorite blush in general, regardless of the season is the Nars blush in Orgasm.
4. Favorite Fall Clothing Item
It’s a tie between flannels, light sweaters and my Charlotte Russe combat boots.
5. Favorite Fall Movie
This is a tie between Hocus Pocus and all of the HalloweenTown movies!!
6. Favorite Fall TV Show
I’ll have to say that I think Riverdale is the best TV show for the Fall.
7. Favorite Thanksgiving Food
Does dessert count as food?! 🤣, I suppose the turkey itself though.
8. Favorite Halloween Costume
I don’t usually get to dress up much for Halloween, but basing it off of previous costumes, I’ll say last year when I was a lion tamer and Michelle (my best friend) was the lion.
9. What is one thing that you look forward to every single Fall?
Being able to go Pumpkin & Apple picking and start preparing for the holidays.
10. How do you like to spend the more chilly/cloudy days in the Fall?
I love to spend these kinds of days one of 2 ways: with Diego cuddled up in bed eating food/snacks while watching movies, or if I can’t be with him, probably cuddled up in bed, enjoying a good book.
11. Which do you prefer: Halloween or Thanksgiving?
I love a healthy mixture of both honestly.
12. What is your favorite trend (fashion/makeup/etc) so far this season?
For fashion, I would have to say that I love a cute yet simple flannel paired with a comfy pair of leggings kind of look with some combat boots. As for makeup, I think a simple look, with a light eye look paired with a bold lip looks SO cool and cute for Fall.
13. Describe what the Fall weather really looks like where you live.
So far, Fall didn’t get off to the best start here in the Northeast, specifically, New York. It was really warm and humid out for a while, up until about 2-3 days ago actually. Now we’re starting to feel the “normal” cool, rainy weather that tends to come along with the Fall season. And hopefully within the next 2-3 weeks we’ll begin to see the leaves start changing and falling more and more.
14. Do you like baking in the autumn season?
I LOVE baking in general, and for me, the “baking season” starts in the Fall, so that’s definitely something I always look forward to every year.
15. Which is your most loved pumpkin-based food?
Pumpkin pie cheesecake….EVERYBODY needs to try it, I promise you will not be disappointed 😍
16. Do you enjoy feeling the cold air, or do you wrap up warm?
I love the feeling of cold air, and having my room be cold in general (at night only), so that I’m able to wrap up in my blankets and feel all warm and cozy.
17. Fairy lights or candles? What is your choice in the Fall?
Both! I have fairy lights with little pumpkins on them stringing across my vanity, and keep my favorite Fall scented candle on top of my vanity as well.
18. Which place do you always wish to visit in the Fall season?
It’s not necessarily a ‘specific place’, but I always love the drive going up to White Plains (in New York). It gets to a certain point where you’re driving by/through a ton of trees for a while, and the colors of all the trees together look SO beautiful and peaceful. In general, the scenery is honestly my favorite during this time of year.
19. During the Fall season, what do you enjoy most with your partner?
Diego and I love so many different things about this time of year, but some of the main things include the cool, breezy weather change and the holidays approaching.
20. Share your favorite quote related to the autumn.
“Notice how the trees do not cling to their leaves. Fall is about releasing the old to make way for the new.” ☺️🍁🍂
Let me know what some of your guys’ Fall favorites are, and whether or not we have any of the same ones. Thanks for reading and I’ll see you guys in my next post 🙂
– Xoxo, Leo Girl ❤
