Happy Fall Survey!

Yesterday was the official first day of FALL!  It's definitely getting chillier in Pittsburgh- particularly in the mornings and evenings.  I'm pulling out my hoodies and jackets and loving it!

In honor of fall, I thought it would be fun to do a survey.  I'm a big YouTube junky, and saw that Jaclyn Hill posted a video with a bunch of fall questions and thought it would be fun to answer them.  Enjoy, and happy fall!


1: Favorite Fall Candle?
I just got my first WoodWick candle, and I'm obsessed now!  I love the soft flickering sound, and they smell amazing.  Right now I'm burning a triple layer candle that has Vanilla Gourmand, Toffee Brittle and Toasted Marshmallow.  AMAZING!  It smells like a bakery in my apartment when I burn this!


2: Favorite Fall lip color?
Rimmel Kate Moss in 107.  I'm still a little nervous about wearing dark colors, but this one is so gorgeous and goes on really smoothly.  It lasts all day and is really cheap!  Perfect way to test out the darker lips!


3: Favorite Fall drink?
Spicy Chai Tea Latte from Trader Joes!  I mentioned this mix months ago, and I'm still obsessed.  I think it's perfect for fall (and I'm going to try it with Pumpkin Spice creamer!).  I also lovvee apple cider...whether it's cold or warmed I'm obsessed!


4: Favorite Fall blush?
I only own a few blushes (I feel like they all look the same on my cheeks!) so I would have to pick my favorite one- Mac Warm Soul.   It's a gorgeous rosy/coral shade that looks great on just about any skin tone!

5: Favorite Fall clothing item?
Express Minus the Leather jacket. I got this in the spring before my trip to Europe, and I know I'm going to be wearing it constantly this fall.


6: Favorite Fall movie?
I'm not really a movie person, so I have to pass on this one!


7: Favorite Fall TV show?
There are so many shows that I am so excited for this fall.  Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder are at the top of my list.  I'm also interested in Scream Queens, which is starting this week as well!


8: Favorite Fall Thanksgiving dinner?
I love oyster stuffing and cole slaw.  My family makes a special type of cole slaw that isn't mayo-based.  It's tangy and sweet and crunchy...the absolute best combination!  And oyster stuffing is something that I only have at Thanksgiving.  I love all stuffing, but there's just something about the oysters that make it 100x's better.


9: Favorite Halloween costume you have been?
My mom made some really creative costumes when I was younger (including a lily pad and a Christmas present) but my favorite costume was when I was Google Maps with a friend at work.  It was a really simple costume to make and I thought it turned out really cute! Enjoy this holiday greeting card:


10: Who else should do this survey?
Jamie, Gina, Meredith, Heather, Suzy, Amanda, Jess and all you other bloggers out there! 


Your turn!  Answer a question (or 10) in the comments!

  1. Love this survey! I have to work it into my blog schedule! I don't love the movies either, I wouldn't be able to answer that question I don't think without really thinking about it.

  5. The Google map costume is absolutely brilliant. My best halloween costume was when I turned a big cardboard box into a washing machine and stapled dirty socks to the outside of it and then I cut a hole in the head and arms and legs. I was only like, 10 so I got huge points for creativity. I need to find that blush. I have such a hard time finding the right shade that doesn't look wonky on me!

  9. Oooomg a triple layer candle that smells like a bakery?! DANGEROUS! I'd seriously try to eat the air with a spoon lol. And thanks for tagging me in this! Given how much I love fall, I'm definitely going to have to try to work this in somehow.

  11. Hahaha your Halloween costume is genius! I haven't found a fall candle that I love yet. I'm allergic to a lot of scents, especially if the candle is made of chemicals, so I have to be really careful what I buy. I'm trying to stick to only US-made, soy candles, but can't find one that I like! I love the smell of pine, although that's more of a winter smell :)

    I also bought a faux leather jacket before I went to Europe and I can't wait to bring it out this fall too!

    1. Pine is a great scent! I'll definitely be picking some up after Halloween! Faux leather jackets are amazing. Where is yours from?

  14. I started to watch Scream Queens tonight and I just couldn't get into it. I turned it off after the girl fell over after getting a spray tan. Perhaps it got better after that?
