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 😂). 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 😢

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.

CAKES9

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 🙂

Affordable Fall/Halloween Decor Haul

Hi Guysssssss!

Today’s post is going to be a fun one because, as you read from the title, it’s going to be completely dedicated to Fall and/or Halloween decorations! 😀 Not only that, but I made sure everything that I bought and am going to mention was all from affordable stores like CVS, Dollar Tree and TJ Maxx (actually, those are pretty much the only stores I got to go to lol).

I also wanted to be able to get a few things from Target and Michaels too (because I mean let’s be real, those stores always have amazing stuff for things like this), but I never got a chance to go to them :/ . Actually, by the time this post goes up, it’ll be Thursday, October 4th, and I’m actually going to be stopping by a mall that has those stores on Sunday. So if I end up buying anything from them, I’ll probably just post the extra items I got on my social media accounts, so be sure to follow me on them to see my new pick-ups (they’re always listed below)! 🙂

I always have SO much fun decorating my room and house around this time of year, and for the holidays. It’s like my thing haha. Some of the things I’m going to mention are stuff I’ve had since last year, but the majority of the items are actually new.

*By the way, please don’t mind the mess in the background of some of the pictures, we just moved back in to our house, and I still have A LOT of stuff to unpack and put away 😩*

Let’s get started!

* * * * * *

IMG_0267

The first thing I have is actually something that I got last year in Michael’s I believe, and they’re pretty much just these little fairy lights that have pumpkins attached to them. They are SO cute. Originally I wanted to be able to hang them over my bed, but it didn’t work out because of issues with the outlet near my bed and what not, so instead I just strung them across my vanity which is just as cute. It also has a few different features for how the lights go off which is cute too. I got this for $14.99.

The next few things I got were actually from CVS.

I thought this little ghost figurine was SO FREAKIN’ cute. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to get it. It was also the last one which was pretty lucky for me. I love that this also lights up, it changes between being lit up in green and red. Such a cute little accent that I’ll probably either put on my vanity or on my main bureau. I actually got this for $5.99.

IMG_0192

These two little pumpkins were also from CVS. I just thought they looked cute and were different. Plus, you can never go wrong with getting decorative pumpkins of some sort for Fall/Halloween decorations. I’m still trying to figure out whether I should keep them both in my room, or put them somewhere downstairs in my house as decoration. The Trick or Treat pumpkin was $4.99, and the smaller one was $2.99.

IMG_0201

I got this predominantly because I just LOVE snow globes, I have a mini collection of them, and figure why not add on to it with a halloween one now too?! I got this for $2.99.

There was also another one that I got from CVS, but I got it last year, and it’s much bigger than this one. It’s actually a Snoopy snow globe where he’s dressed like a witch, ugh I LOVE that one, but I have yet to find it for some reason. As soon as I do though, I’ll take a picture of it and show you guys on social media.

IMG_0204

These next few things I got all from Dollar Tree. They’re all pretty self-explanatory, and pretty much things that I can hang on the walls in my room. Every single one of those things are also a dollar too, in case you guys weren’t aware for whatever reason.

IMG_0210

IMG_0212

I have a few little fake candles that you can just snap the switch and they’ll turn on and look lit up, in front of my tv, so I’m thinking for October and November I’ll substitute those for these little ones. They’re pretty bright for how tiny they are and considering they are from Dollar Tree lol.

I got this door hanger because I also have one for Christmas which I thought was really cute, and may as well get one for Fall/Halloween too. They had a bunch of different colors and styles, but I figure I didn’t have anything else in my stuff that looked like it, so I got this one!

IMG_0226

I pretty much got this little container to just keep in my room or put on the main table downstairs and just keep some candy filled in it all the time until Halloween!

IMG_0230

* * * * * *

THESE next couple of items I got from TJ Maxx in Manhattan.

IMG_0245

These little hand/dish towels, I mean c’mon….look how freakin’ cute. There are 2 bathrooms in my house, so I’m thinking that I’ll probably put 2 in the kitchen hanging on the stove and then one in each bathroom for people to be able to use. I got them for $5.99 each.

IMG_0250

I’m a sock girl who LOVES cute little patterns and designs like this whenever I can find them, so of course I had to get a few pairs. Each pair was $1.99.

IMG_0260

And finally, I got this ADORABLE little mug. I mean…..hello pumpkin!! 😩😍 how cute is this?! It’s also just like the perfect little size to have a small cup of coffee or a hot chocolate, or even tea if you’re in to that kind of thing. It’s kind of “plain” in a sense, but I love it, it’s just simple. I got this for $4.99.

* * * * * *

Well guys that’s it. Those were all my recent little Fall/Halloween decoration pick-ups. I’m SURE I’ll end up getting a few more little things when I go to Target and Michaels on Sunday, but like I said earlier, when and if I do end up getting anything, I’ll show it to you guys on my social media so again, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat to see it! 🙂

I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing and shopping for it! Look out for my next post coming on Sunday, because it’s going to be another little fun one! 😊

Happy (Early) Halloween! ðŸŽƒðŸ‘»

In lieu of Halloween being just a few short days away, I thought it would be fun to do two little Halloween tags, of This or That and Trick or Treat.

This or That

1. Chocolate candy or Fruity?: Depends what kind of fruity candy tbh, but 9 times out of 10 it’ll be chocolate.

2. Witches or Vampires?: I’m obsessed with both! 😍

3. Trick or Treat?: Treat

4. Halloween party or Scary movie?:Halloween Party!!

5. Skeletons or Zombies?: Skeletons, I don’t fuck with Zombies…

6. Trick or Treat or Hand out candy?: Trick or Treat

7. Hay ride or Corn maze?: Both sound fun, but probably corn maze. I would probably legitimately get lost though and no one would ever hear from me again lol.

5611f7e4b3980.image

8. Scary costume or Funny costume?: Funny/Quirky costume!

9. Pumpkin seeds or Pumpkin Pie?: Pumpkin Pie….CHEESECAKE (game-changer)!!😍

Pumpkin Cheesecake 10. Bottle feed a baby zombie or walk through a dark forest?: It’s contradicting what I said from earlier, but bottle feed a baby zombie lol.

11. Bats or Black cats?: Black cats! 😁

12. Pumpkin Spice or Hot chocolate?: Both…but mainly hot chocolate

13. Celebrate in your neighborhood or at the mall?: How about celebrate in someone ELSE’S neighborhood lol

Trick or Treat

1. Your Favorite Halloween Candy: Chocolate, it would definitely be KitKat; Candy, it would definitely be candy hamburgers lol

2. Do You Believe in Ghosts/Spirits?: I definitely do, I don’t exactly know why, but I do.

3. The Spookiest Thing That’s Ever Happened To You?: This has happened to me a few times actually where I’ll be sleeping then out of nowhere wake up a few hours later, in the middle of the night, and I’m half asleep but I’ll see this dark figure in the left corner of my room, but it’ll be like high up towards the ceiling. And I swear it looks like the shadow of a full on person. I’ll rub my eyes, and blink a bunch of times in hopes that it’ll go away, but it doesn’t; only until I literally jump out of bed to run and turn the light on will it finally go away….and then I’ll leave the light on and sleep with it like that for the remainder of the night because I’m a big baby 🙂.

Image-1 (2) 4. Favorite Halloween Costume You’ve Ever Worn?: I would have to say the costumes I wore last year; my best friend and I (unknowingly) were planning on doing similar costumes in that I was gonna be a Lion Tamer and she wanted to be a lion, so we coordinated and that’s what we ended up being. We also did another costume where she was Harley Quinn and I was Minnie Mouse, but again (unknowingly) we matched red and black lol.

5. Do You Still Dress Up?: If I can, I will, but I don’t think I will be this year.

6. If You Had To Dress Up This Year, What Would You Be?: For some reason, for the past few years I always think about and REALLY want to be a Female Mario, or “A Sexy Plumber” how most costume shops refer to it, because I find it really cute, but it still has yet to happen, so probably that lol.

7. How Old Were You When You Stopped Trick Or Treating?: I want to say about 10. My parents stopped us really young because my mom didn’t care for Halloween, it made her more nervous than anything especially in the neighborhood that we live in.

8. Favorite Scary Movie: I HATE and am terrified of scary movies, so absolutely none, worst Halloween celebrator EVER lmao.

9. If You Were In A Horror Movie, How Far Do You Think You Would Get? (Five Minutes, Halfway, etc.): For sure, I would be the first one to get caught/die. Without a doubt.

10. Worst Halloween Costume You’ve Ever Had?: A FREAKIN’ WITCH. There was a good like 3-4 years straight where I kept being a witch for one reason or another, I wore the same one twice, my parents got  a new one for me…..it was just a bad time. I got sooooo sick of it that to this day I hate witch costumes.

hot chocolate 11. What’s One Unusual Thing You Are Afraid Of?: I’m afraid of a lot of dumb stuff, and I don’t know if this means unusual as in dumb or what, but I’ll say when I’m laying in bed sleeping or about to go to sleep, I’ll lay on my belly and my feet end up hanging off the bed a little, that freaks me out because I swear someone or something is going to come from the bottom and yank me by my feet.

12.Creepy Dolls or Creepy Clowns?: Creepy nothing how about🙃

13. Freddy Kruger, Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers or Leatherface?: Freddy -vs- Jason was the first scary movie I EVER saw when I was like 8 and it’s traumatized me ever since, so fuck you both 🙄. I don’t know who or wtf Leatherface is lol, so I guess Michael Myers.

14. Favorite Halloween Movie?: Ahhh such a close tie between Hocus Pocus and all the Halloweentown movies!!

15. 1-10 How Much Do You Enjoy Halloween?: I’ll say a 6 or 7, I loved the trick or treating and dressing up aspect, but I hate the stupidity that some people decide it’s okay to do/be on that day, especially in the area that I live in.

Image-1 (1) 16. Favorite Halloween Decorations: I have 4 pieces in my room that I absolutely love. I have these little fairy lights around my vanity, but each individual light is in the shape of a pumpkin, so that’s really cute. I LOVE all things Charlie Brown, so I found this snowglobe in CVS that is Halloween themed, has Snoopy dressed as a witch surrounded by pumpkins, and when you shake it, there are little bats that fly around, it’s adorable!!!! My favorite Fall candle which is Home from Bath and Body Works. And finally, this little figurine of three pumpkins stacked on top of each other, and they light up, but the light is multicolored, and changes its color every few seconds.

17. Are You Superstitious?: For some things, but not the silly ones like if you step on a crack, you’ll break your mothers back. More like the type of thing where you’re really excited about something but you shouldn’t really talk about it too much to too many people because some people have bad intentions and can mess it all up for you; or similarly, when you first have a baby (although this may only be a Hispanic superstition), you shouldn’t show too many people what the baby looks like or introduce them to too many people because again, people have bad intentions and could do brujeria or something on the baby.

18. Could you Handle Staying The Night In A Haunted Building?: No, I would probably die of a heart attack 🙃

That’s all I’ve got for today, let me know in the comments below what your guys answers to the above questions are, I’d love to hear your responses! Also let me know future posts that you guys would like to see, always open to hearing what you guys have got to say.

Til next time,
