Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. Although I don't like cold weather, I do love that everything starts feeling a bit cozier. I was recently tagged by Beti to do the Fall Favorites Tag, and the questions were so fun to think of answers to that I just had to do it!
Favorite Candle: I think my all-time favorite fall candle is Yankee Candle's Macintosh - such a classic. Right now though I haven't been able to get enough of Cider Lane from Bath and Body Works. It was from last year so I'm not sure if they still have it, but sometimes they re-release scents under different names. I love this one because it smells like apples, cinnamon, and caramel - it's so good.
Favorite Lip Color: This fall I've been all about the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bond Girl. I'm obsessed with neutral lipsticks, and this one is especially perfect for the fall season because of its slight berry tone. The formula of these are also so lovely. But any time I want a bold lip, I've been reaching for the NARS Audacious Lipstick in Audrey - it's just a stunning berry red shade.
Favorite Drink: I'm not a huge Pumpkin Spice fan (shock horror), or a big coffee drinker, but I love me some fresh apple cider. Every year I make the trek to a (not-so) local farmer's market for their hot cider and cider donuts.
Favorite Blush: My cheeks tend to go quite rosy in the fall because of the heating being turned on, so I go for netural, mauve-y blushes if I wear any at all. My go-tos have been the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure if I want something glowy and the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed if I want something matte.
Favorite Clothing Item: This fall I've been on a quest to buy all the turtlenecks. I'm not sure if they're the most flattering thing I could wear, but they're so cozy and nice. My favorite has been this one from H&M.
Favorite Fall Movie: This has to be a tie between Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Believe it or not, I didn't actually see Nightmare Before Christmas until I was 19 or 20 but now I absolutely love it. And Hocus Pocus is just brilliant. Bette Midler is my queen.
Favorite Fall TV Show: This is hands-down The Walking Dead. This is pretty much the only TV show I keep up with in the fall, to be fair. For someone who's terrified of scary movies, this doesn't scare me at all. This season has been wild so far, with a cliffhanger at the end of every episode.
Favorite Thanksgiving Food: Is it cheating to say all of it? Thanksgiving is only a very close second to Christmas for my favorite holiday. I go to my grandparents' house every year, and my grandma is just the most amazing cook ever. If I had to pick one thing, I think I'd eat her mashed potatoes for the rest of my life.
Favorite Halloween Costume: For my whole life I've kind of always felt like I had pretty lame costumes. I always liked them in the moment when I picked them, but then they seemed so inferior compared to my friends' costumes at school. I think I peaked at age 2 when I was Baby Bop from Barney and Friends - check out that hat.
