Let me start by saying I love Jaclyn Hill. Once I saw this Fall Favorites tag I was dying to participate, but couldn’t figure out of a way to post my responses on Instagram. Now that I have a blog – I obviously had to do this as one of my first blog posts.
FAVORITE CANDLE: Bath and Body Works Marshmallow Fireside – this candle is DELICIOUS. The Bath and Body Works description says “Celebrate the season with a warm blend of toasted marshmallows, smoldering woods and creamy vanilla reminiscent of a cozy evening ’round the bonfire”. My husband and I don’t normally agree on things like this but once we both smelled this candle we went out and bought 3 back-ups. It has been Fall for less than a month and we’ve already gone through 2 of these candles.
FAVORITE LIP COLOR: MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Creme in Your Coffee – this is a pinkish/brown color and a Cremesheen finish. This is one of my favorite MAC finishes because it is creamy and not so matte and drying. The color is absolutely perfect for Fall.
FAVORITE DRINK: Black Coffee from my Keurig – ok, I am super boring. I like black coffee year-round and typically make it at home with my Keurig. I probably go to Starbucks 2 times a year!! It’s not that I don’t like it, but I’d prefer to save my money to purchase more important things (like hundreds of makeup products that I don’t need).
FAVORITE BLUSH: TOO MANY TO PICK JUST ONE!
Urban Decay Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Blush in Rapture – mauvey purple color
Giorgio Armani Cheek Fabric in 200 Androgino – super pigmented, burnt orange/reddish color
Clinique Cheek Pop in Cola Pop – the package is small and adorable, the color is a berry red
Bobbi Brown Blush in Slopes – I wear this blush year-round. It is the least pigmented of the group but I don’t mind building up the color. The color is very neutral and gives you natural looking flushed cheeks.
FAVORITE CLOTHING ITEM: Oversized sweatshirts. Let’s be honest, I live in Texas so “Fall” is actually 90 degree weather. You look ridiculous if you wear boots, scarfs, jackets, or other typical Fall clothing. However, sometimes my husband and I will crank down the AC and in that case, I love wearing super comfy oversized sweatshirts. This particular one is from Nordstrom.
FAVORITE FALL MOVIE: Hocus Pocus #basic
FAVORITE FALL TV SHOW: Scandal. I am so in love with this show. I even named our dog Mellie after my favorite character on the show. If you are not watching this show – you should start!
FAVORITE THANKSGIVING FOOD: Sausage Swirls. My sister’s mother-in-law made this once for Thanksgiving and it has been a constant in all of our holiday meals since then. It’s going to sound nasty but it is breakfast sausage, cream cheese, and a biscuit-type bread swirled together. De-lish.
FAVORITE HALLOWEEN COSTUME: None. Again, I’d rather save my money than spend a ton of money on an outfit I am going to wear one night. Also, my husband’s birthday is 11/1, so we are typically staying with his family during Halloween. My sister and her friend’s go all out for Halloween so I live vicariously through them (God, I sound old). The above pictures are of my sister and I when we were younger. Aren’t we adorable?
I hope you enjoyed this blog post! What are some of your Fall Favorites?
