Happy weekend, friends! What’s everyone up to this fine Saturday? I don’t really have anything exciting planned, although I think we’re going to hit up the farmers market tomorrow morning which I’m pretty excited about (so what, I have a soft spot for fresh produce, haha). As I was reading some of my faves yesterday, I came across this post by Christine of Simply Stine where she was doing the Jaclyn Hill (all-time favorite Youtuber, if you’ve never heard of her) Fall Favorites Tag. Fall is my most favorite season, for several reasons, so I definitely wanted to join in on this one!
The Sonoma Pumpkin Spice candle from Kohls. Let’s be real- how surprised are you that I didn’t say something from Bath & Body Works? Don’t get me wrong, I love their candles, but I have yet to find one that is the perfect amount of pumpkin spice without being too sweet. This Sonoma candle is DELICIOUS and burns forever and just smells amazing. It’s the same size as the B&BW 3-wick candles but it’s TEN BUCKS, plus you can always find discount codes for Kohls. Buy this before it sells out (I have literally bought several as backups, I love it that much), you won’t regret it!
Favorite Lip Color
In regards to general lip colors, anything plum/berry/wine is what I’m all about for fall. If I had to pick an absolute favorite, I honestly don’t know if I could. What I CAN tell you, though, is that I want the NYX Suede Lipstick in Cherry Skies SO. DAMN. BAD. but they’ve been sold out on the ULTA site forever since they had their Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale on NYX stuff a few weeks ago. I can almost guarantee that will be my most perfect ever fall lip color once I finally get my hands on it, so let’s go with that, haha.
I’m not going to say PSLs because they’re not my favorite, though I do enjoy them every now and then. I was going to say Starbucks peppermint mochas until I realized that’s a Christmas drink, not a fall drink. So in that case, I’ll go with my tried and true caramel macchiato because I don’t think I really have a fall-specific fave drink- I just am generally happy I can drink hot coffee again without sweating, haha.
I have to pick a favorite? If there’s one thing in my makeup collection that I really hoard love to collect, it’s blushes. One I’ve been reaching for a ton lately is one of the blushes included in the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette, Mood Exposure. It’s a really gorgeous plum that pairs perfectly with a dark lip.
Favorite Clothing Item
Leather jackets!!! I swear, I’m not trying to copy Jaclyn here, but I loooove leather jackets. They instantly dress up any outfit and just make you look more put together. I have a couple black ones that I alternate and I’m still looking for the perfect tan one. Also, if I actually owned this sweater, it could very well be my most favorite fall clothing item.
Favorite Fall Movie
Again, not copying Jaclyn, but I love Hocus Pocus. I grew up on watching that every year with my dad and it’s such a goodie. I watched it the other day while working and I’m sure I’ll watch it another couple times before fall is over! I also love the Halloweentown movies. They’re SO cheesy but again, I grew up watching these with my brother every year (and we still watch them together pretty much every year, it’s always unintentional but they just happen to be on TV when we’re both around, haha).
Favorite Fall TV Show
Does this just mean shows that come back in fall? If so, right now am super stoked that How To Get Away With Murder and Criminal Minds are back on!
Favorite Thanksgiving Food
PUMPKIN PIE!!!!! It’s stupid (and unhealthy) how much I love pumpkin pie. But, it HAS to have whipped cream or it’s just not the same. I also love me some turkey!
Favorite Halloween Costume
Like, ever? I’ve honestly never been one of those people who just has full on amazing Halloween costumes. I am a procrastinator by nature and that usually transfers over to my Halloween costumes, ahaha. I am the queen of the last minute costume… in high school I once wore my regular clothes with a sign around my neck that said “Nudist on Strike” because lazy, haha. My most favorite one ever would probably be the year I was Tinkerbell (and my best friend at the time was Peter Pan) and I was mostly so pleased with myself because I made my own costume out of this giant, hideous, light green dress that I thrifted, haha.
Feel free to do a quickie fall faves tag of your own in the comments, or direct me to your own posts! I’d love to hear your fall favorites!
