I first saw this tag when Jacklyn Hill posted it on her Youtube channel last Fall. I immediately fell in love with it and thought that it was such a great way to share some of my favorite things about Fall. I would love to hear all about your favorite things about the season. Be sure to share in the comments!
Favorite Fall Candle- My favorite candle for this time of year is the Caramel Pumpkin Swirl Candle from Bath and Body works. I am OBSESSED with this scent! And by that I mean I have the candle and the wallflowers in my apartment. I’m normally not a big fan of sweet scents, but this one is the perfect balance of sweet and spicy. It creates the perfect atmosphere to cuddle up under your favorite blanket and relax this Fall.
Favorite Lip Color- My favorite new lip color for this time of year is “Stone” by MAC. For some this color can be a little daunting, but I absolutely love it! It has a bit of brown, gray, and purple all wrapped into one creating the perfect look for a crisp day. Plus it stays on forever so you can sip on your Pumpkin Spice Latte and still have flawless lips.
Favorite Blush- My go-to this time of year is “Dolce Vita” by NARS. It’s a little richer than “Orgasim” which is my tried and true. It has a bit more of an apricot tone to it along with some copper shimmer. I love it because it warms up my cheeks without being too bold and overpowering.
Favorite Clothing Item- I’m gonna have to go with a mini skirt for this one. This time of year I love to pair a mini with tights and booties and then layer my favorite sweater on top for a cozy but chic look. Zara and ASOS currently have some mini skirts that I would love to get my hands on!
Favorite Fall Movie- I’m going to cheat a little on this one and give you two of my favorites. Number one is gonna have to be Fantastic Mr. Fox. This movie is hilarious and always gets me in the mood for the fall season. It must be all the woodland creatures and the colors that Wes Anderson uses. I watched it last year while I was making my Thanksgiving dish and it put me in the perfect mood. Number two is, of course, Hocus Pocus. This movie used to scare me but now I love it! It’s so funny and always gets me in the mood for Halloween. Plus, I grew up watching it with my family and it reminds me of Halloween back home.
Favorite Drink- While I am quite partial to a pumpkin spice latte, the Sleepy Hollow at Fido is incredible. It contains pumpkin, fall spices, vanilla, espresso and milk- all combined to create the perfect cup of coffee for the season. If you are ever in Nashville during the Fall you need to stop by and try it!
Favorite Costume- When I was 3 or 4 I dressed up as Mary Poppins for Halloween. I had the bag, the hat- everything! I remember my grandmother helped make the costume and put so much detail into every little thing. Still my favorite Halloween costume to this day.
Favorite Halloween Candy- Dark Chocolate Kit Kats! Oh.my.gosh. I am not a huge candy person, I would rather have a cupcake, but I can put down some Kit Kats. I already have a jar of these in my apartment right now for Halloween and it’s so hard to walk past them without grabbing one. I also love the pumpkin shaped Reese’s. Yum!
Favorite Thanksgiving Food- Sweet Potato Casserole. Last year was my first Thanksgiving away from home. I knew that if I was going to miss one thing (besides my family, of course) it would by my mom’s sweet potato casserole. She goes all out with the mini marshmallows and the crunchy cereal on top J I attempted to make it last year on my own, and while it was good, it still wasn’t as good as my mom’s. Still one of my favorite things that she makes all year.
Peace and Love,
