Fall Favorites!

I was tagged by the lovely Jess of Love for Lacquer to complete a list of my fall favorites, and I am all too eager to share with you.  Fall is arguably my favorite season: I love the cooler weather, pumpkin scented and flavored everything, and my all time favorite holiday, Halloween!

Favorite Fall Lip Product
I have been on a lip gloss kick lately, and my current favorite is Rimmel Stay Glossy in Captivate Me.  It adds a nice touch of colour to my lips during the day and an extra pop of colour and shine over lipstick in the evenings.
Favorite Fall Nail Polish
This one was surprisingly easy for me to choose, and I suspect that will never happen for me again!  LOL!  I have yet to feature this colour on my blog, and this is Glitter Gal Belgian Chocolate.
Favorite Fall Starbucks Drink
Pumpkin Spice Latte hands down!  I'm not a big coffee drinker in general, but I do love a pumpkin spice latte on occasion.
Favorite Fall Candle
This one is was difficult for me to narrow down since I love so many fall-related scents.  After some consideration, I decided that if I can only have one candle, I would want a Yankee Candle in Harvest.  The scent of this candle epitomizes fall with the warm spicy scents mixed in with hints of apple and pumpkin.  Yum!
Favorite Fall Scarf or Accessory
I am usually a big fan of boots when it comes to fall, but my feet are swelling because of the pregnancy so I can't really wear them right now.  I have added a few scarves to my wardrobe that I really love.  The first is black with grey and pink skulls that I picked up on eBay.  While I wear skull things year-round, I know not everyone does.  I have also picked up an olive green scarf and a purple and maroon scarf from Walmart.  A girl has to have options!
Haunted House, Haunted Hay Ride, or Haunted Corn Maize
I really want to pick option D: All of the Above!  I'm a big fan of any sort of spooky event, and I'm a little sad I'm supposed to be avoiding them right now.  If I had to chose one, it would probably be the haunted hay ride.  They are usually an interesting mix of spooky and relaxing within moments of each other, and I find them to be a little more family friendly.
Favorite Halloween Movie
There is no way I can possibly pick one movie!  I watch both cute family-friendly Halloween movies and horror movies throughout the month of October, and my choices change every year.  The only movies that I watch every October without fail are The Halloween Tree, based off the book by Ray Bradbury, and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
Favorite Candy to Eat on Halloween
Hi, my name is Jen, and I am addicted to chocolate!  I love candy corn, but it is just a little too sweet for me.  I started mixing it in with a chex mix, and oh my, is that delicious!  I really need to get to the store so I can get some made this year!

What Are You Dressing Up As On Halloween?
I'm afraid there will be no costumes for me this year.  I'm really looking forward to dressing up the little one next year though!

What Is Your Favorite Thing About Fall?
Pumpkins make me inexplicably happy.  It doesn't matter if they are whole or carved jack-o-lanterns, there is just something about the plump orange roundness that makes me smile.  I have been known to spend hours in a pumpkin patch picking out my perfect pumpkin, and I love having them around the house.

I really enjoyed putting this list together, and I may have to do this again!  I'd love to hear about your fall favorites as well!  :)


  1. Love the scarves. I'm not usually a scarf person but I did pick up two on a recent shopping excursion in downtown El Paso. I can't wait to wear them.

  2. We are so alike its scary. I love pumpkins I can't explain it and even painted my kitchen a pumpkin color. I love skulls and candy if I had to type this out our answers would pretty much be the same. Thank you for sharing I love these type of posts it makes the bloggers seem a little more real

  3. Man, that polish is to die for! I HAVE to get it!
