The Fall Favourites Tag

Monday, October 19, 2015
It's that time of year again! Yep, fall tag time. This year, I'm going to do Jaclyn Hill's version, which is focused solely on favourites:

1. Favourite candle? I haven't bought candles in a long while, but I would say for this fall, it would be Ladurée's Lucky Charms New York candle. It smells like apple — slightly tart, slightly sweet — with a hint of spice.

2. Favourite lip colour? I couldn't decide between these four (I can't believe I even narrowed it down to four), so I'm listing them all.

Tom Ford Pussycat, NARS Vivien, MAC Viva Glam III, and Urban Decay After Dark

  • Tom Ford Lip Color Matte in Pussycat, a matte medium muted dusty mauve rose
  • NARS Audacious Lipstick in Vivien, a satin medium-dark muted reddened plum
  • MAC Lipstick in Viva Glam III, a matte dark muted brownish plum
  • Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in After Dark, a matte medium-dark magenta-berry

3. Favourite drink? I'm quite into the Chai Tea Lattes from Second Cup right now.

4. Favourite blush? I wouldn't be a true blush fiend if I picked just one. Here are my top picks this fall:

Clockwise from bottom left: Surratt Beauty La Vie en Rose, Hourglass Mood Exposure, Becca Sweetpea, and Bobbi Brown Cranberry

  • Surratt Beauty Artistique Blush in La Vie en Rose, a medium muted warm plummy pink
  • Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure, a medium muted neutral brownish rose
  • Becca Mineral Blush in Sweetpea, a medium muted warm plummy brown
  • Bobbi Brown Brightening Brick in Cranberry, a medium to medium-dark rosy bronze

5. Favourite clothing item? Okay, y'all know I don't usually wear colour (like, 98% of my wardrobe is black), but I just bought this multi-coloured Tapestry Infinity scarf from Aritzia (on sale for 40% off!) and I am kind of in love with it.

6. Favourite fall movie? To me, a "fall movie" is a movie that begins or is set in the fall, so my favourite fall movie would be The Perks of Being a Wallflower. For some reason, I associate it with the fall season, maybe because the first time I read the book (15 years ago, in Grade 8, and has been one of my favourite novels since then) and the first time I saw the movie (three years ago) were both in the fall. But the story also starts at the beginning of a school year, which is also fall. (And I think this might be one of the only instances in which I felt the movie did the book justice.)

7. Favourite Fall TV show? Again, I'm not sure what constitutes as a "fall TV show," and I don't watch a lot of television these days, but if we're going with a show that begins or is set in the fall, I'd have to say Gilmore Girls. Honestly, it was my favourite TV show until it ended in 2007, and I watched it religiously every single week for its entire run. I always associate it with fall because the beginning of a new season of the show always started in the fall (with Rory starting a new school year), but it's also because a third of that show was set in the fall and some of the biggest events on the show happened in the fall.

8. Favourite Thanksgiving food? Okay, if we're talking about traditional Thanksgiving foods (e.g. unlike the sushi dinner I had this year), then it's definitely a tie between stuffing and mashed potatoes.

9. Favourite Halloween costume? I don't dress up for Halloween these days (I am anti-social and don't go to parties and I live in a retirement community so there are no children to pass out candy to, thusly negating the need for a costume... also, I am lazy), but if I was gonna put in the time and effort, it would be this:

  1. STUFFING. Whenever S and I actually do Thanksgiving food, we only make stuffing and the other sides, lol. STUFFING IS THE BEST.

    Um, that Joker makeup is the freakiest shit, man. I dislike scary stuff and Halloween kinda freaks me out in general, hahaha.

    1. Haha, who cares about turkey when you got sides? Honestly. I think turkey is my least favourite part, lol.

      LOL, usually the scary stuff like clowns and dolls scare the SHIT out of me, but I guess her take on the Joker just seemed more cool than scary to me. :P I guess it makes it less scary when you see someone building the look bit by bit, you know?
