As yesterday was the first day of winter, it’s the perfect time to recall my favorite items from Fall. One of my besties – and fellow 1D enthusiast – Faith tagged me back in November and I’ve been excited to put together this post since then!
Favorite Candle: I discovered ‘Leaves’ by Bath and Body Works and have been burning it nonstop. I actually just hit the bottom last weekend, and am horribly sad about it. It is the perfect rich blend of golden nectar, red apple & spiced berries that just seems to warm up every space. I also love how the scent is not to sweet – considering most B&BW candles are.
Favorite Lip Color: I’m not usually a matte lip girl, but something about the Fall weather makes me stray away from my usual lustre picks. Revlon ColorBurst Balm Stain in “Smitten” has been my favorite raspberry colored lip hue for years. I love patting it on the lips for a wine-stained color that lasts through many glasses of hot cider. Milani’s “Matte Flirty” lipshade is a great choice when I want something a bit deeper. Best part is that both products are super affordable!
Favorite Drink: Chai tea lattes are my jam come Fall. I love how spicy and warm they are, without being that overly sickening sweet pumpkin flavor.
Favorite Blush: I don’t tend to switch up my blushes for the season. My NARS “Orgasm” has been my go-to year round, but I am looking to boost my collection a bit. I think a nice sangria shade (circa NARS “Seduction”) will need to make its way into my life soon…
Favorite Clothing Item: Vests. Oh, vests. I have definitely had a love affair with this trend over the past few months. They’re the perfect way to layer up without feeling too bulky or overheated. I have a feeling i’ll continue to rack up some more fur favorites throughout Winter as well.
Favorite Fall Movie: Halloweentown or Hocus Pocus have always been #1 in my book. I remember watching these on the Disney channel growing up, and am happy to see they’ve stuck around.
Favorite Fall TV Show: Chanel Oberlin may be one of my favorite characters of all time. Although Scream Queens isn’t the best show out there, it is definitely the most amusing. Mainly for the fashions and lingo that pops up in each episode. Five-shot half-caf, no foam, pumpkin spice latte with no foam at 210 degrees, anyone?
Favorite Thanksgiving Food: This was a hard one for me. I only recently fell in love with Thanksgiving food a few years ago – I was a picky eater growing up. I would say that Apple Pie a la Mode or Stuffing take the cake for me though.
Favorite Fall Moment: My favorite trip this fall had to be my annual trip to Harrisburg/Hershey with my friend Lydia. We always spend the weekend driving up in the gorgeous foliage, vineyard hopping, watching football, and just escaping from the city. I already can’t wait for next year!
Now I want to tag Jordan, Julia, and Daisy to carry on the tradition – this time with Winter favorites. Let me know what yours are! I can’t wait to indulge in all of the goodies that are still coming through December and January..
