The Autumn Tag

October 15, 2013

The lovely Cookie from The Charming Cheshire tagged me so that I can write about all of the wonderful things I enjoy about fall.  This shouldn't be hard to do considering fall is by far my favorite season...I love the weather, the holidays, the leaves, and all of the tasty pumpkin treats.  :)

If you haven't checked out Cookie's blog yet, you should!!  She comes up with the coolest manicure ideas.  Each one is so different from the next--they're really creative.  Also, if you're a fan of subscription boxes, Cookie always posts sneak peeks of Ipsy Glambag, Glossybox, etc.  I can never resist looking at them!

FAVORITE THING ABOUT AUTUMN:  Gosh, it's hard to narrow it down to just one thing.  I'm going to cheat and say two things because one of them is the changing leaves and that is just a given.  The other thing I like the most are the wardrobe changes that come with a cooler season.  I adore wearing riding boots, scarves, and comfy sweaters!

FAVORITE AUTUMN DRINK: I love brewing pumpkin spice coffee with my Keurig.  Lately I have been picking up pumpkin spice K-Cups from Dunkin' Donuts because everywhere else seems to be sold out of this flavor.  I also like to add in some pumpkin spice creamer, but again, it's tough to find!

FAVORITE AUTUMN SCENT/CANDLE: I love the cool, fresh air in the fall, but as far as a candle is concerned, my favorite would be the Pumpkin Caramel Latte one from Bath and Body Works.  I can't resist its sweet pumpkiny scent.  I have already used up this candle and would like another, but the last time I checked BBW they were sold out in stores.  (Are we noticing a trend here? Haha.)  As of now they are still available online, though.

BEST AUTUMN LIPSTICK: The lipstick (technically lip stain) I've been wearing a lot this fall is Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain in Romantic.  I tend to stick with reds in the fall, and my lips stay nice and smooth with this on.

GO TO AUTUMN MOISTURIZER:  I don't switch up my moisturizer for autumn, but instead consistently use my Estee Lauder Day Wear Creme.  This moisturizer works so well for me in all seasons!

FAVORITE GO TO COLOR FOR THE EYES:  The Tarte Coral Crush Amazonian Clay Palette screams fall to me.  Just look at those beautiful colors...sigh.  C'est parfait, n'est-ce pas?

FAVORITE AUTUMN MUSIC TO LISTEN TO:  Well, I've always enjoyed "November Rain" by Guns 'N Roses in the fall, but this fall I've been listening to John Mayer's new album, Paradise Valley, a lot on Spotify.  I wouldn't necessarily call that "autumn music," but it's just what I've been liking since it was released in August.

FAVORITE AUTUMN OUTFIT TO WEAR:   I gravitate towards cozy, comfy clothes in the fall.  Sweaters, riding boots, scarves, and tights are all some of my personal faves.  I'm also a big fan of layered fall looks.

Right now I'm digging this cute floral scarf from Forever 21.

Here is another fall look that I like:

FAVORITE AUTUMN TREAT: I have got to go with Pumpkin Cheesecake Cookies from Pepperidge Farms.  These cookies are so soft and delicious and combine two of my favorite flavors into one mouthwatering snack.

FAVORITE PLACE TO BE DURING AUTUMN: This would be outside on a nice, sunny day enjoying the weather and admiring the leaves.  I'm not a big outdoorsy person, but in the fall I do like to take hikes and be outside as much as I can.  In the summer I get overheated and don't like getting all gross and sweaty.  Also, Ohio winters are snowy and freezing and long, so I don't get out much in the winter, either.  I've got to take advantage of the weather I like while I can.  :)

I'm not going to tag any bloggers specifically, but if you would like to participate in this, just feel free to join in.  Leave your link in the comments, so that I can be sure to check out your post.

  1. This is totally reminding me to pick up some pumpkin-scented candles. I think B&BW has had a couple of big sales recently which is probably why the candle selection was picked clean!

  2. That lip stain is very pretty! and I didn't know those cookies existed and now I wish I didn't because I will be on the lookout next time I go shopping. Nothing cheesy about the fall leafs I love em!

  3. Loving the Lipstick shade :)
