Hello and happy Friday! As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, today I’ll be skipping my usual Friday Finds and instead taking part in the Sweater Weather Tag that Martina so graciously tagged me in! This tag is all things Fall and Autumn, so if you hate this seasons I’m sorry, but I am about to dump a whole lotta basic on you. Let’s get to it!
- Favorite candle scent
Conveniently enough, The Bath and Body Works scent “Sweater Weather” is what I wished everything smelt like. If someone came up to me on the street (and I almost never just “walking down the street” so how did I get there??) and asked, “Hey what do a pile of sweaters smell like to you?” I would say “Nothing, and please get away from me.” That was until I first picked up the Sweater Weather candle and was blown away that Bath and Body Works had been able to capture a scent for something I never associated a scent with in my entire life. What sort of witchcraft are they using in their perfume laboratories to create such magic??
- Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
Coffee turns me into a walking panic attack, so hot tea for me please! I reserve hot chocolate for Christmas time only.
- What is the best fall memory you have?
I think until I die I will always associate Fall with high school football and marching band. Friday mornings in the fall and winter I still feel like I have to make it to school two hours early for band practice and then I remember that I’m an adult and everything is terrible.
- Best fragrance for fall
I’ve been leaning away from heavy perfumes lately, but if I could bottle any “fall” smell it would be
gravy apple cinnamon.
- Favorite Thanksgiving food
Mashed potatoes and gravy, y’all. I mean yeah I could eat that year round (and I do), but it really just rounds out a Thanksgiving meal in my opinion.
- Most worn sweater
My University of North Texas hoodie that I purchased my very first week college. May that gem last a life time.
- Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Okay do none of you remember the blinding pain that came with diving into a pile of leaves? There is no cushion, people! It is honestly no different than just diving head first into a concrete sidewalk. So with that, my answer is football games.
- Favorite type of pie
I’m pretty picky when it comes to pies, and have found I’ll only eat pumpkin or apple. I’m not much a dessert person, sorry!
- What is Autumn weather like where you live?
I live in Texas, so Autumn doesn’t really come out to play until late October/early November. It’s slowly starting to cool off here, but it’s nowhere near sweater, boots, and scarf season. Womp womp womp.
- Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged liner?
Winged eyeliner, but this is mostly due to the fact that lipstick, no matter what shade, makes me look like a maniacal 3 year old that was let loose at a Sephora.
- What song really gets you into the fall spirit?
A made up song called “It’s Fall, Y’all” that I wrote just now for the sake of this question.
- Is pumpkin spice really worth the hype?
As someone who recently tried PSL flavored waffles. Yes. Yes, it abso-f***-inglutely is. I’ve also jumped on the PSL tea bandwagon, and so far it has yet to disappoint.
- Skinny jeans or leggings?
Leggings + leg warmers for lounging around, skinny jeans if I want to look like I have my life together.
- Combat boots or Uggs?
Combat boots. God bless my Forever 21 combat boots that despite
typical Forever 21 quality all odds have held up for over two years.
- Halloween: Yay or nay?
Oh hell yay.
- Fall mornings or evenings?
Mornings. Fall evenings pretty much begin at like 2:30 pm anyways. Thanks, Daylight Savings!
- What do you think of Black Friday?
As someone who spent three years in retail, I hate it. Be a normal person and just partake in Cyber Monday. You can’t get trampled logging into Amazon!
- One Fall 2015 trend you love
I am not “up” on trends, so I’m just going to say I really enjoy when people Instagram their fall decor. I’m not even being sarcastic about that. I freaking live for Fall decor. Hashtag that junk to death because I love it.
I love me a good tag, and that one really delivered! That being said, I tag all of you to participate and let me know in comments so I check it out! I’m now off to go pack my life away! See you all next week!
