The Sweater Weather Tag!

1. Favorite candle scent?
¤ I don't actually use candles! I think because when I was younger I was scared of accidentally ever catching something on fire since I was kiiiind of a clumsy child...but I've been thinking about maybe buying a Christmas-y scented one for the holidays, just to have around the house for an hour at a time.

2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?

¤ Hot Chocolate. Whipped Cream. Chocolate Flakes. Mmmmmm......

3. What's the best fall memory you have?

¤ I think, maybe, school time...?...! Growing up I always looked forward to school. I'd go back-to-school shopping as early as I could, have my mom drop me off at Staples/Walmart and just spend hours going through all the new gel pens, notebooks, smelly markers, pencil topers, geometry sets, duo-tangs, etc, etc, etc. And there were always the events my school had for Halloween and all of the pre-Christmas hype... good times indeed. Ahh, nostalgia... :)

4. Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?

¤ Winged Eyeliner - I've been using Sephora's Colour Proof Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in 01 Black and Rimmel's Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Black. Sometimes do a wing, not always, but just in general, I prefer eyeliner to dark lips on me. (But if you can work it, go 'head!!)

5. Best fragrance for fall?

¤ Vermont Sugar Maple from Bath & Body Works - We just recently got a Bath & Body Works in the city where I live, and after hearing so many people saying "I got this," or "I got that from BBW", I thought I'd check it out. I have allergies to... really, any, fragrance scents, :S so never have worn a perfume or body spray, HOWEVER, when I saw and smelt the pocket sized hand sanitizers I was psyched! The Vermont Sugar Maple reminds me of the smell of a hazelnut latté - so sweet and delicious - and the best part is, the scent slowly fades. 

6. Favorite Thanksgiving food?
¤ Mashed Potatoes & Gravy... SO GOOD! Even though Canadian Thanksgiving has already come and gone, I'm seriously considering just making a mini-Thanksgiving dinner myself too.

7. What is autumn weather like where you live?
¤ No snow but it gets really chilly and there's frost outside every morning - I kinda prefer the warmer weather :D not a huge fan of how static-y everything gets and wearing glasses, you walk inside after being in the cold and BAM! You can't see.

8. Most worn sweater?

¤ Navy & Burgundy chunky knit sweater from Forever 21 (I'll try and add a picture of it here in the next day or two!) - Their sweaters, I mean, there's just SO many of them and they're affordably priced too, so they're a great fit for me! ;)

9. Must-have nail polish this fall?

¤ OPI DS Extravagance - Deep burgundy w/ a subtle sparkle
¤ OPI DS Classic - Warm gold w/ a subtle sparkle
¤ Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Midnight Sky - Dark silver/grey with a slight metallic sheen

10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
¤ Jumping in leaf piles! - Football just seems like it takes so long, like an hour for a couple minutes of play in some instances... whoa.

11. Skinny jeans or leggings?
¤ Skinny Jeans - They're a bit warmer in the cold weather. Thinking of getting some chunkier knit tights this winter though. Jeggings are nice too sometimes!

12. Combat boots or Uggs?
¤ Oh man, if I could style combat boots, then those hands down! (styling attempts in progress)

13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
¤ Not sure, haven't had it before. Wasn't ever really a fan of the taste of pumpkin **don't hate me**

14. Favorite fall TV show?

¤ The Goldbergs! - Seriously guys! The episodes are only ~25 mins, you should check 'em out! :D

15. What song really gets you into the fall spirit?

Hmm... songs I've really been liking lately are:
¤ Team by Lorde -
¤ Counting Stars by One Republic -

Well, that was fun. :) Nice way to ease back on into writing some good 'ol blog posts!

Till next time,
