Fall Favorites Tag || Jaclyn Hill Edition

c/o pinterest.com
I absolutely adore Jaclyn Hill's YouTube channel, and she recently came up with a 2015 fall tag. It's a list of 9 fall-related questions collectively known as The Fall Favorites Tag. This is more of a YouTube thing, but Lord knows I have no time to film a video. I decided to bring this tag to the blogging world so I could still participate. 

So, here we go: 

1. What is your favorite fall candle?
Leaves by Bath & Bodyworks (I'm aware this is basic, but it's the best). I even have this scent as an air freshener in my car. Leaves, according to the BBW description, allows you to "[c]elebrate fall foliage with a rich blend of golden nectar, red apple & spiced berries", and it's totally accurate!

2. What is your favorite fall lip color?
I have two! For a nude shade, I always reach for NYX "Pumpkin Pie" lipstick. For a vampy shade, I adore NYX "Copenhagen" soft matte lip cream with the NYX "Currant" lip liner. 

3. What is your favorite fall drink?  
I just recently really got into Starbucks. Quite honestly, I could never really see spending obscene amounts of money (and calories) on specialty coffee beverages. Over the summer, however, my love for their teas reached an all time high. Mango Black Tea Lemonade was my jam (Check out my dupe recipe here) For fall, I've been on the hunt for the perfect warm concoction. I tried the pumpkin spice latte and I was not impressed. I also tried the new toasted graham latte and that didn't really impress me either. I absolutely adore the gingerbread one, but that doesn't come out until November/December. If you have a suggestion, leave it in the comments below!

4. What is your favorite fall blush?
Tarte's "Exposed" 12-hour blush. It's a gorgeous warm nude shade that goes with every fall look.

5. What is your favorite fall clothing item?
Do boots/booties count?! I simply adore riding boots. They're such a staple in my wardrobe. In my opinion they can always pull an outfit together. I literally own 10 pairs - check out some of my favs here (wide-calf) and here. Also, I'm totally obsessed with ankle booties! With my short, curvy legs I never thought I could wear them; however, when you find the right pair, the angels sing. You shorter ladies should check out these and these.

6. What is your favorite fall movie?
It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. 

7. What is your favorite fall TV show?
How to Get Away with Murder. As a soon-to-be lawyer, I must confess that the legal accuracy is lacking. The storyline, on the other hand, is fantastically interesting!

8. What is your favorite fall Thanksgiving food?
Sweet Potato Pie. It is out-of-this-world amazing. Let me know in the comments if you want me to post the recipe. 

9. What is your favorite fall Halloween costume?
When I was in kindergarten, I insisted on being the "bad" Sandy from Grease for Halloween. I've been a Catholic school girl my whole life, so around Halloween we'd celebrate the saints in honor of All Souls Day. Therefore, at the ripe age of 5, I was the Virgin Mary in the morning and the "Bad" Sandy by night (black leather jacket & red clogs included)! 

I now tag all of you!! Let me know what your answers to one, some or all of the above questions. I'd love to know.
