Happy Fall!


Despite the lovely L.A. weather, it is, in fact, fall and as such, I thought I'd post something seasonal. This is the blog version of the modified version of this tag which was posted by one of my favorite YouTubers, "missglamorazzi". Enjoy!

1. Favorite candle scent?
As its name and label would suggest, Fresh Balsam is definitely a winter scent. Despite this, it is my favorite for fall. It fills the room with a woody crispness which I feel is perfect for this season - and the next!

2. Coffee, tea or hot chocolate?
Although I love all three, I'd have to say coffee! My current favorites are Starbucks' Pike Place and Pumpkin Spice.

3. What's the best fall memory you have?
Dodging Palm tree branches! I'm laughing at this as I type because it seems like such a true California fall moment. There is a large Palm tree in my parents' front yard and each year when the wind kicks up, some of the branches fall. Unlike light, dainty leaves riding the breeze, Palm tree branches have the grace of a lightning bolt racing violently toward the earth. And, on occasion, I've been unfortunate enough to have been outside while these branches make their seasonal descent.

4. Dark lips or winged eyeliner?
Dark lips. There's a richness about them that just says fall.

5. Best fragrance for fall?
Viktor and Rolf's Flowerbomb. Flowerbomb for any season. Flowerbomb always no matter what. It's my favorite. Can you tell??

6. Favorite Thanksgiving food?
Since I don't eat turkey as I am a vegetarian, it's a tie between dressing and cranberry sauce for me. More accurately, it's the combination of dressing topped with cranberry sauce. Yummy! Tip: Check out the back of the packaging of Trader Joe's cranberries for an incredibly easy and delicious cranberry sauce recipe.

7. What is autumn weather like where you live?
The weather in Southern California only hints at seasons. When we feel a bit of wind and see a few tanned leaves, we know it's time to throw on a sweater or scarf. That's our autumn. It's more about wardrobe updates than climate changes.

8. Most worn sweater?
My black button down boyfriend sweater from Target. It goes with almost anything and I wear it with almost everything.

9. Must-have nail polish this fall?
I have yet to purchase it, but I'm loving the look of Essie's After School Boy Blazer.

10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Are you kidding? It wouldn't be fall without football! It's my favorite sport and my honey plays every year on Thanksgiving so it will always be a autumn tradition for our family.

11. Skinny jeans or leggings?
Leggings are great but denim reads more fall to me. Skinny jeans + brown riding boots + a great sweater and scarf = perfect autumn outfit.

12. Combat boots or Uggs?
Uggs. I don't really wear mine out of the house because I hate my wide calves, but I still like their comfy cold weather vibe.

13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
Definitely! It's amazing. Go get one now. Make it a venti. It's even great with soy milk. Go now!

14. Favorite fall TV show?
I'm a huge How I Met Your Mother fan. It's very well-written and the cast is extremely talented. The only bad part about this show? It's the last season! Monday will soon regain its title as the worst day of the week.

15. What song really gets you into the fall spirit?
Miles Davis' Freddie Freeloader. It's the perfect soundtrack to an autumn drive.

I don't think my reader population is even in the double digits yet, but if you do read this, consider yourself tagged! Please please please comment with a link to a sweater weather tag of your own. If you neither blog nor vlog, comment anyway and tell me your favorite thing about fall!!
