Fall. It’s my favorite time of year. I’d love to have 10 months of fall with 2 months of summer on repeat. I can’t even help myself. Everything to do with fall is perfect. That’s why I decided to post a Fall Favorites. It’s not just beauty, or fashion, but all inclusive. This could be a long post, kudos if you stick around to the end.
My most favorite part of fall? Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I know. Everyone says that, and it’s a real problem. I think I’m addicted. I crave them all spring and summer long. I just can’t get enough. I kind of need a second job to fund my Starbucks PSL addiction. It is that bad. Thankfully, the closest Starbucks is 15 minutes away, and it’s totally out of my way or else I’d be bankrupt.
Another huge favorite? Bath and Body Works candles. This is another common one, especially in the blogging and youtube community. For me personally, they are stress relievers. Candles relax me, and I burn them all year long. That being said, Autumn is the only time I can get the Pumpkin Cupcake, Heirloom Pumpkin and Leaves candles, and I’m obsessed. Pumpkin Cupcake is my ultimate favorite. I’m currently awaiting another 2/$22 sale so I can stock up again.
As you can tell, I’m obsessed with anything and everything Pumpkin. Despite my love of Bath and Body Works pumpkin candles, (and scentportables…yes my car smells like a pumpkin cupcake), I don’t like the pumpkin scented lotion. It smells nothing like cinnamon pumpkins, it smells like old perfume. No thanks. However, if you know of a good pumpkin lotion, please let me know! The struggle of finding one is real.
As for fall fashion, I’m quite simple. I will live in boots, leggings, cardigans and scarves. They give me life. In case you were wondering, Aerie has awesome leggings, but Victoria’s Secret leggings are my ultimate favorite. Looking for a less expensive alternative? Forever 21 leggings. $3.80. If you get the right size they’re opaque, but cover your butt just in case. 🙂
My hair will always either be curled or in a bun. I rarely straighten it in the fall. It’s usually just in a bun because I’m wearing a scarf anyway. I prefer dark hair colors in the fall/winter. Mine is currently dark purple.
I wear a lot of dark makeup. For some reason, I gravitate toward it. During the day, I’ll keep my eyeshadow light and sparkly, but at night I’ll wear darker, deeper shades. I typically use a lot of warm shades. Some of my favorites are Makeup Geek Peach Smoothie, Creme Brulee, Cosmopolitan, Cocoa Bear and Country Girl. I still recommend the Lorac Unzipped palette as well as the Too Faced Pretty Rebel palette. I’ve been considering purchasing the Urban Decay Naked 3. Talk me
out of it into it.
I still wear winged liner. It will never be out of style, I don’t care what anyone says.
I definitely prefer darker lip colors. Berrys, reds, burgundys…yes. I still tend to wear lighter shades during the day. A few of my favorites are MAC Vegas Volt and MAC Creme Cup for during the day.
MAC Rebel, Urban Decay Jilted, and Revlon Black Cherry are a few of my favorites.
I just ordered Lime Crime liquid lipstick in Wicked last week. Can’t wait to get that one.
I’ll wear my NARS Laguna all year long, I do change my blush some. I wear deeper pinks, purples and peaches. I’m dying to get Becca Wild Honey and NARS Sin.
I love dark nails. Anything in a deep almost black shade, I want it. Essie Wicked, OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest, OPI Lincoln Park After Dark. If you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments!
Outside of makeup, I also love to read. Give me a blanket, some candles, coffee/hot chocolate and a book, you won’t hear from me for a while. And no, I don’t want a kindle. I actually have a Nook and I never use it. I like real books. A Nook/Kindle just doesn’t feel right.
The weather this time of year is perfect. Not too hot, not too cold. Not much rain or snow. The leaves are the perfect shades of orange, red and yellow. I just can’t get enough of it.
As you can tell, I love fall. It’s the perfect time of year. I really hope you love it as much as I do.
Thanks for reading and if you stuck around to the end, THANK YOU!
