fall, favorites

Fall in Full Swing

I have seen several people do the fall favorites post, but when Andrea posted it yesterday and said that she wanted to see her blog friends answer the questions I figured why not?!

Favorite thing about Autumn? The question should be what is there not to love about Autumn? The answer would be nothing. Except maybe ragweed. I could do without the ragweed. I love the weather, the leaves, the scented candles, smores, football, salted caramel mocha fraps, sweaters, boots, Hocus Pocus, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, the sales, the crispness in the mornings, just everything!!!!!!!

Also, I have discovered that the summer heat and humidity has really been holding me back in my running, this morning I freaking rocked my run and am looking forward to PR’ing the shit out of them now that I am not dying of heat.

Favorite Autumn drink? Salted caramel mocha fraps, apple cider,  Boulevard’s Funky Pumpkin beer, Traveler’s Jack-o-Traveler shandy.

Favorite Autumn candle? Leaves or pumpkin anything. Marshmallow Fireside is my all time favorite and I burn it year round, fall included!

Favorite Autumn snack? Pumpkin scones and apples

Favorite Sweet Treat? Reese pumpkins

Favorite Soup? Chili!!!!

Favorite Autumn lipstick? Ravish Raspberry from Milani and Captivate Me from Rimmel (Captivate me is a year round thing for me though, really)

Go to Autumn moisturizer? This is about the time of the year that I start ordering Body Shop’s Vitamin E lotion!

Favorite music this time of year? Starting November 1, it will be Christmas music 24/7 for me. Until then? I tend to favor rock and chill music like Hang from Matchbox 20.

Favorite Autumn movie? Hocus Pocus! Duh!!!!

Favorite Autumn attire? Sweaters and boots! Though to be honest, it is still too warm for those for me. I have been wearing light sleeved long shirts with my ballet flats.

Fall Clothes in the South

Favorite place to be? At home curled up watching a movie with fall candles going. On the patio drinking a fall beer and enjoying the weather. Walking in the leaves, I love how they smell!!! I also love driving up the mountain to Oneonta when the leaves change and eating at Benedikt’s.

Favorite Halloween costume? Chris is the DJ at this huge annual Halloween Bash. Some years I go all out, other years I throw on a Polite as Fuck top and call it a day.

My favorite costume was probably the year I was a witch.

    I’m no fan of fall as you know but I’m a fan of Reese pumpkins and all things Halloween! Now that I have a kid I get lots of trick or treat candy again!

  • Reply Stephanie October 20, 2015 at 9:22 am

    Love your answers, agree on practically all of them! That color by Miliani is fab, I need to go find it now.

    Lol to the most holidays and least utility bills! Too true. The weather is sooo perfect for running right now. If it gets much colder, my lungs will be complaining, but they’re pretty crappy year-round so it doesn’t make that much of a difference!

    My Leaves candle is all burned out and I seriously need to hop to replacing it. Marshmallow Fireside is a great one too, but I wait until the winter so I don’t go through too many candles too quickly 🙂

    Yippee Yippee, I LOVED YOUR FALL FAVORITES!! Just bursting with goodness!! Cracked up at Tee “costume” and hello, cutest witch ever right there!!! I have a witch on a post next week from kindergarten and it’s ever so drab, you’re dress is amazing!!!! I admit that I too, turn to the holiday station and listen to Christmas tunes 24/7, they make me happy and festive!! Geez, I’m reading this and thinking, yep, love Reese pumpkins, yep, love Hocus Pocus, yep, love vitamin E. Isn’t it fun to love so much good stuff?? Ha ha! It’s the little things like Fall Favs that makes me happy. 😉

    My utility bill was $50 less this month – I was thankful.

    HOLD UP – there’s a candle that smells like burning leaves? That’s my favorite scent in the world!!!

  • Reply Mattie October 20, 2015 at 1:15 pm

    Yesss pumpkin scones and Reeses pumpkins. Annd Hocus Pocus, sweaters and boots, hard cider…I could go on and on! I need to fill this out too!

  • Reply Tracie October 20, 2015 at 1:20 pm

    I’m going to have to try that BLVD beer, I’m not sure that I’ve tried a sour beer except their cherry one a while back. I wonder if the burning leaves would make me sneeze like real burning leaves do 🙂

  • Reply Biana @ Blovedboston October 20, 2015 at 1:38 pm

    That berry colored lip gloss is so pretty and girl I’m so with you on curling up at home -with candles burning it’s the best!! xo, Biana

    I love Leaves from BBW too. It’s the best! Plus all the other fall things like pumpkin beer, Hocus Pocus and football. Damn, fall really does have it all!

  • Reply Teh Megan October 20, 2015 at 1:53 pm

    I know we’ve talked about it before, but I just needed to #fangirl on Marshmallow Fireside being the absolute best candle in the entire world evarrrrrrrr… I think I’m going to go home and light all of mine (all in different rooms) because I need more marshmallow smell in my life.

    It seriously is the best part of going into my closet. I had to put the candle in Teh German’s underwear/sock box and he covered it once and I couldn’t smell it and I had to tell him that covering the candle was NOT allowed.

    Yessss to cheaper electric bills – mine plummeted this month and will continue to go down until May when we start running the AC non-stop again. And B&BW Leaves candle is hands down the best <3

    I adore the Reese’s pumpkins but for some reason nothing will ever top the egg.

    I’m almost out of fall candles. Atrocious.

    I love the pumpkin reese’s! I haven’t dressed up for Halloween since I was probably about 7. I just kind of decided to not participate in the dressing up anymore. No idea why though! I love seeing groups of people in their costumes! Maybe one of these years I’ll get back in the spirit of things!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis October 20, 2015 at 9:28 pm

    Soo good you’re getting back into running! I’m sure the Florida heat made it quite uncomfortable. i need the polite as fuck tee in my life. Love it! haha

  • Reply Kerry October 20, 2015 at 10:07 pm

    Pumpkin reese’s just taste better! I am loving being able to burn candles again and sweaters. My skin is already feeling dry though so lotion all the live long day!

  • Reply Katie October 21, 2015 at 2:50 am

    Yes to lower utility bills!! I’m not the biggest fall fan, the allergies can really ruin it for me, but I love the new clothes and closeness to the holiday season.

  • Reply Laura October 21, 2015 at 8:28 am

    Reese’s pumpkins somehow just taste better than the normal ones. I think we should have a party – with Reese’s pumpkins, some funky pumpkin and a leaves candle. Just sayin….

  • Reply B @ The Sequin Notebook October 21, 2015 at 8:34 am

    Autumn is the best! I love all of your drink choices. My old apartment prohibited the use of candles, so this is the first year in a long time that I’ve been able to burn them and I’ve been going crazy with buying all of the fall scents!

  • Reply Marie October 21, 2015 at 10:00 am

    Oh I love the pumpkin scones from Starbucks, they are so good. Reese’s pumpkins totally taste better than the regular ones and I have no idea why. Right now, I’m loving the white chocolate Kit Kat’s, so good!

  • Reply Tracy October 21, 2015 at 4:15 pm

    Yes fall running! I feel like fall shows up and is like, “PR for you…PR for you…PR for you…” Get it girl!
    I’ve already placed 2 orders for fall candles so I’m trying to ration the ones I have left, haha.

  • Reply Amanda October 21, 2015 at 6:51 pm

    No joke, I’ve watched Hocus Pocus 3 times in the past week… so far. 😉

  • Reply joey October 22, 2015 at 7:15 am

    Ummmmm can I just say you are looking SO GOOD in your outfit photos!? I can tell you’ve been working out!

  • Reply ellesees.net October 22, 2015 at 7:24 am

    i think i’m the only person in the WORLD who hasn’t seen hocus pocus. is it really good or is it just a nostalgia thing?? i think i will watch it this year.
