Hi, everyone! It’s been such a long time since I’ve posted because, as you know, I get so busy during the school year and it’s hard to juggle work, life, and blogging regularly. I hope you all have been well and are enjoying fall and the change over into cold weather! Since we are definitely deep into fall I thought I would do the Sweater Weather tag that I’ve seen flying around several blogs and YouTube accounts in the beauty community. Before I jump in and begin answering the tag questions I’d like to tag Luchessa and Bridgett.
1. Favorite candle scent?
My three favorite scents this fall are all from Bath and Body Works and are Marshmallow Fireside (my favorite for the past 2 years), Spiced Cider, and Pumpkin Cupcake (soooo yummy). You really can’t go wrong with Bath and Body Works candles when you hit a 2 for $22 sale on their 3-wick candles.
2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
I’m definitely a fan of a good, rich mug of hot chocolate with either a few marshmallows, whipped cream or some marshmallow fluff–that being said, I don’t drink hot chocolate often.
3. What’s the best fall memory you have?
Hmmm, I don’t know if I have a particular “best” fall memory, but I always enjoy Thanksgiving Day with my family and enjoying that time with them. I also enjoy fighting the Black Friday shopping crowds with my mom in the wee hours of the morning!
4. Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?
Hands down: dark lips! I’ve been really enjoying the Color Statements lipstick in Sangria by Milani.
5. Best fragrance for fall?
I don’t have a specific fall perfume that I go out and buy for only this season, but I have been reaching for my Bath and Body Works Twilight Woods body spray more frequently because it has a more musky/woodsy scent.
6. Favorite Thanksgiving food?
Mashed potatoes and gravy!!!!!
7. What is autumn weather like where you live?
This fall it has been fluctuating a lot. The other morning I woke up and it was 62 degrees and this morning it was 19. Generally it’s cold, but not super cold.
8. Most worn sweater?
My most worn sweater isn’t anything very exciting–it’s just a black cardigan from Gap.
9. Must-have nail polish this fall?
My must-have nail polish this fall is the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Wine Not.
10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
I’m not really one for romping about in the leaves, but I’m also not a huge fan of the NFL. If I HAVE to choose, I guess I’d go with football because football games are a good opportunity for friends to get together and socialize.
11. Skinny jeans or leggings?
Hmmm, both of these have a place in my wardrobe. Skinny jeans are great for tucking into boots in the cold weather and leggings are great to wear with tunics or sweater dresses. I can’t choose!
12. Combat boots or Uggs?
This is another one that I can’t make a choice on because I wear both (except I don’t wear Uggs brand–I prefer Bearpaw).
13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
If we’re talking about candles, yes. If we’re talking about drinks, no.
14. Favorite fall TV show?
I’ve really been enjoying Ravenswood, the Pretty Little Liars spin-off, on ABC Family. Honestly, I didn’t think I’d like it, but I’ve been hooked since the pilot episode!
15. What song really gets you into the fall spirit?
I always start to get excited for Thanksgiving, fall, and the holiday season when I begin teaching my youngest students the song “Leaves Are Falling” (I’m a music teacher). Once I begin singing that song with them I know that fall has arrived!
