I’m ridiculously excited for fall. It’s my favorite season. Halloween is my favorite holiday. Nothing makes me happier than throwing on a pair of heavy leggings, a knit sweater, my trusted hoodie, and knee boots. It’s probably because it’s mainly hot here in California save for fall and winter which doesn’t even begin to happen until maybe mid October. In fact, as we “speak,” it’s nearly 99F degrees where I sit. Sweating buckets. So, I thought I’d do this I love fall tag in an effort to inspire myself to get into the fall spirits since hot PSLs are definitely out of the question until the weather cools down more.
1. Favorite Fall lip product?
I really love Karen Murrell Lipsticks on the whole (review here) given how organic, eco and green they are and the colors are absolutely stunning, but for fall colors, I’m loving these: Butter London Lippy in La Moss and Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Shameless (review here). They just feel more like fall/autumn.
2. Favorite Fall Nail Polish?
I’m obsessed with all the nail polishes from Kure Bazaar
. I really love Smokey (blue/green/gray color) at the moment and these are all on my fall/winter wish list: Scandal (vampy oxblood black cherry color), Cashmere (a slate gray), Catwalk (deep shimmery purple), Chloe (muted lavender), Phenomenal (deep purple), and Or Rose (shimmery rose gold). You can learn more about my obsession with Kure Bazaar polishes here
3. Favorite Fall Starbucks Drink?
I try to stay away from Starbucks, but on occasion, I really enjoy a Toffee Nut Soy Latté with 2 shots of espresso or your traditional Pumpkin Spice Latté with 2 extra shots. I prefer my coffee strong. If you want to make your own PSL, try this one
. Otherwise, getting a taste of fall is simple – mix your ground up coffee with a teaspoon to tablespoon of ground cinnamon or pumpkin spice – the flavor makes the house smell wonderful and adds a lot of flavor to your black coffee! Aside from those, I really love turmeric tea
, green teas of any kind, hot chocolate, and herbal teas.
4. Favorite Fall Candle?
5. Favorite Fall Scarf or Accessory?
My Harry Potter Gryffindor scarf, as always, and I’m really loving edgy looking ear cuffs.
6. Haunted House, Haunted Hay Ride or Haunted Corn Maze?
I really love local haunted houses or anything to do with Halloween. They’re fun and they have a lot of character, whether they’re low budget local ones or more upscale amusement park types. I love the art of it all.
7. Favorite Halloween Movie?
Wayyy too many, but some all time favorites include Silent Hill, Halloweentown, Hocus Pocus, all the Harry Potter films, and the 10th Kingdom. You can see more of my favorites – here. For scarier type horror films, check – here.
8. What is your favorite Candy to eat on Halloween?
Tootsie Rolls, Smarties, York Peppermint Patties (though this is hard to find haha), Redvines, and Bottle Caps!
9. What are you dressing up for Halloween?
I’m thinking of going as some kind of mime or clown. I really love things that involve face paint, to be honest. I just find it fascinating. I also really like anything with half a face or split face haha. I sound demented, but I just think it looks cool. My friends want to go as characters from Resident Evil so I might go as Claire Redfield.
10. What is your favorite thing about Fall?
The rain! Falling asleep when it’s pouring with my window cracked open so I can hear it and smell it. That’s just amazing. The smell of coffee and cinnamon in the air. I also like the smell of fireplaces in the cold air, wearing boots and scarves, and the fact that it gets darker earlier. I’m something of a night owl.
11. Favorite song to play in the fall/autumn?
My step dad loves playing Christmas music from like beginning of November so I definitely associate fall with that, but for me personally, I love playing really sad music haha. Like Birdy or something. It’s not that I’m sad, I just enjoy it for some reason. It’s like how I enjoy watching super sad movies and crying to them, but I don’t feel sad in my life. Maybe it’s because I just cried it all out LOL. Anyway, either really sad depressing stuff (because why not), all instrumental, or all AFI all the time. Their Sing the Sorrow album, mostly, because the rest of it isn’t as good in my opinion.
12. Favorite non-Halloween film to watch?
I really love Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. That’s one of my favorites, in general, but it’s fun to watch when it’s cold out for some reason.
13. Favorite fall/winter holiday?
Halloween all the way! I love Christmas and Thanksgiving as well, but Halloween. I think I love Halloween more than even my birthday haha. It’s just fun so much fun to dress up and become someone else.
14. Favorite fall makeup look?
I really love bold deep berry lips with bare face makeup, neutral pastel colors, or smokey eyes with a nude lip. Those are my 3 main looks in the fall/winter months.
15. Favorite way to spend fall weekends?
I really enjoy just staying in watching films, working out, going on long walks, or filming our short films. Cloudy days make for perfect film natural lighting.
