Fall Favorites Tag!

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 ๐Ÿ˜‚). 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.

* * * * * *

  1. 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 ๐Ÿ˜ข

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,ย  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?! ๐Ÿคฃ, 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 likeย 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.ย 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.ย Which is your most loved pumpkin-based food?

Pumpkin pie cheesecake….EVERYBODY needs to try it, I promise you will not be disappointed ๐Ÿ˜

16.ย 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. ย 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. ย 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. ย ย 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. ย 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.” โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

All About Fall

Gooooooooooooooooood Morning Everyone! ๐Ÿ˜Š

I’m here at work, and so far it’s been a pretty slow day, not much going on in the office right now. So, I was sitting here brainstorming what some of my future posts should be about and reminiscing on old ones, and although I do have a list already of future topics I want to and will speak about, I realized that a lot of my recent posts have been pretty serious/heavy topics. So I thought about it and figure that I’ll do an impromptu post of something a lot more lighthearted than some of the others that have been going up lately. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

It’s another tag, and yes again, I know doing tags are predominantly for YouTubers and you really don’t see things like that going up on blogs, but I thought it would be something fun and sort of out of the blue to do today. ๐Ÿ˜…

This is pretty much an Everything Fall ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚ tag. I don’t know about anyone else, but Fall is like my favorite season. It’s not too hot, not too cold (that is when the weather is actually cooperating), and it’s just like the perfect time of year. The leaves are changing colors and falling, pumpkin and apple picking, it’s just a really beautiful time of year.

There’s a really beautiful quote that I always see around this time of year and love so much; “The trees are about to show us how lovely it is to let the dead things go.” It might sound a little weird and/or gruesome, but there’s just something about it that I like. It’s also the passageway for the holidays starting which is exciting in itself (to me anyway).

So it’s all going to be two different tags technically, but all the questions and stuff are going to be Fall related.

Let’s get started! The first one I’m doing is I Heart Fall.

I Heart Fall Tag:

1. Favorite Fall scent – It’s this candle called Home from Bath & Body works…UGH I love it so much, it’s so pretty and soft smelling, definitely my favorite. Unfortunately, it says limited edition on it so I’m not sure if it’s something you could still purchase online or in store.
2. Best way to spend a rainy day – Personally, at home cuddled up in a blanket with (or without) your significant other watching movies/Netflix all day.ย 

3. Favorite Fall Drink – This is hard to say, because I know the basic answer would be Pumpkin Spice Latte, which I’ve tried and think is okay, but I’m not obsessed with it like other people. So I’m just going to say my normal Iced Caramel Macchiato drink from Starbucks. โ˜•๏ธ
4. Football ๐Ÿˆย , yay or nay? – Somewhere in between, it’s probably like jumping on the bandwagon, but I always get excited for watching it when the SuperBowl comes around, and every year when it does, I tell myself next season I want to REALLY get into it, but never do lol.
5. Favorite article of clothing this Fall – Sweatersssssssssssssssssss ! and long boots ๐Ÿ˜
6. Haunted house, haunted hay ride, or haunted corn maze? – Oh dear…haunted ANYTHING and me are just not a good mix, I’m too much of a chicken shit for any of that lmao ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
7. The scariest movie youโ€™ve ever seenโ€ฆ – The Exorcist movies SMDH!!!

8. Favorite candy to eat on Halloween? – I’m such a chocolate person that I’ll say KitKat, but actual candy probably swedish fish or those candy hamburgers.ย 
9. What will you or your kids be this year? – I have no idea yet!!!! Still in the process of figuring that out lol.
10. What is your Favorite thing about Fall? – The leaves changing colors and falling is my absolute FAVORITE thing, it’s so pretty everywhere because of that. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜

The next tag is called An Autumn Tag.

An Autumn Tag:

1. The smell of pumpkin guts or rotting leaves? Rotting Leaves.
2. Sweet or salty pumpkin seeds? Sweet.
3. Store bought or pumpkin patch pumpkins? If I could go, it would definitely always be pumpkin patch pumpkins, otherwise I’ll settle for store bought ones. ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ

Well that’s all I’ve really got for today, please comment below or send me messages on social media or something if there are things in particular you, my readers, want to see more of. Always open to new ideas of things to post!

Also, feel free to comment below somebody of YOUR favorite Fall things, and/or answer the questions that I answered ๐Ÿ˜Œ.

Also, I’m seriously thinking about starting a YouTube channel. I know basic right? lol, but it’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while, and the more I think about it, the more I want to make it happen. It would sort of be a visual aid for my written blog here, not necessarily touching upon all the same things, but something similar to it. What do you think? Leave me your thoughts on it.

Until next time!
