Do you feel it in the air yet? This is my favorite time of year. Everything about fall makes me feel warm & cozy, easy-going, fresh, new, and ready for change. The buzz of summer is just now starting to settle, and the realization that the holidays are approaching starts to sink in. But before the sparkly winter hustle & bustle, there is this beautiful time to be still, to let the changing colors inspire you, to be free and awake and rejuvenated. There is this time to revel in the beauty of nature and the cycle of life. The crisp feel and smell of the air is refreshingly different yet familiar and comfortable. Activities are abundant and people come together. There are nostalgic flavors, colors, sights, and smells popping up everywhere. I am ready, are you?
It may not even be October yet but fall is here and I could not be more excited!
I searched around for a good fall tag to share with you and found one here on a blog called “Pretty Random Things”. Click through to see what she chose to include in her list!
Read on to discover what I am loving for fall!
What is your favorite fall lip product?
If you follow my blog you probably know by now that I love the Revlon Super Lustrous line of lipsticks! I picked up two new shades in my last CVS haul: Iced Mocha and Sassy Mauve which are great for fall…
BUT I am really searching for the perfect dark red/burgundy/ox blood lippie! I might stick to my favorite line and try the color Wine Not. it is part of the Matte Collection pictures below on the far right. I would LOVE to hear of any similar suggestions!
What is your favorite fall nail polish?
Check out my recent post: Top 10 Fall Nail Polish Picks for my fall favorites! Wet n Wild DIsturbia is probably my top pick out of the ten in the post and is pictured below.
Besides the 10 in that post, I am really loving my new Maybelline color show nail polish in blue freeze. I also picked this up in my recent CVS haul. It is gorgeous dark blue with a subtle shimmer. The formula is great and it is a nice color for fall.
What is your favorite Starbucks fall drink?
That is easily the Pumpkin Spice Latte. I don’t always order a latte though, sometimes I like to get a plain coffee with 2 pumps of pumpkin spice flavor added. Either way, pumpkin spice is delicious! The Forbes article linked in the picture is pretty interesting too, actually.
What is your favorite fall candle?
Bath and Body works Marshmallow Fireside and Pumpkin Cupcake are my two current favorites! Marshmallow Fireside is just amazing. I could burn it for the rest my life! I still love the original fireside scent but this is a tad better. Pumpkin Cupcake is really nice to and it is not too sweet and definitely has a strong pumpkin smell. Both of these candles have great throw and you can smell them even when they are not burning.
What is your favorite fall scarf or accessory?
I live in boots during the fall! That reminds me- I need to get a couple of new pairs for this year. Both boots pictured below are from target- aren’t those super cute!? They are affordable too! The deep red pair are right on trend and would look amazing with black skinny jeans!
I love to wear scarfs as well. My current favorite has to be a purple-grey leopard print scarf that I snagged on sale from a local accessory store called Charming Charlie. It looks similar to the black and grey one from Forever 21 below.
I think I will have to pick up this globetrotter scarf also from forever 21- it is TOO CUTE and I think it would pair well with lots of different things!
Which is your favorite; haunted house, haunted hay ride or haunted corn maze?
I have never been to a haunted corn maze but it sounds like fun! I do enjoy haunted houses but they are never very scary to me. Hay rides are pretty awesome though so I will have to go with Haunted Hay Rides!
What is your favorite Halloween movie?
I will always remember watching Disney’s original Halloweentown movie! I am not sure how much I would like it now than I am older but when I have kids I will surely play this for old times sake 🙂
Of course I do like to watch other scary movies around Halloween but I don’t really have any favorites that stick out. If you have and good recommendations, let me know in the comments below!
What is your favorite candy to eat on Halloween?
I really like candy corn (they are addicting) and Reece’s Pumpkins! The Pumpkins are especially good frozen!
What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
I am not sure what I am going to be this year yet. I am still trying to think of a creative couples costume for my boyfriend and I that doesn’t necessarily come in a package from the store.
Here is what I/we dressed as the previous 4 years:
Female Robin Hood (green dress w/ brown corset, hat w/ feather, brown boots, money bag, brown lace up gloves)
Vampire (Black skirt and black corset, red cape, gothic necklace, black rose headband, pale face and vampy makeup)
Couple: Deviled Egg (I was a devil- wearing all black with a tail, pitch fork, and horns. He was the egg- wearing a white sweatshirt that I custom-made with yellow felt yolks and sayings like “farm fresh” “grade A” “keep refrigerated”)
Couple: Pulp Fiction Characters Mia and Vincent (I was the Uma Thurman- wearing black pants, white button up, black bob wig, red dot on my chest, and bloody nose. He was John Travolta- wearing a black suit, white button up, a bolo tie, dress shoes, and a long brown wig we tied into a low pony tail)
