Random Post: Sweater Weather Tag!

Hey there! So, right now in San Diego, it is in the uppers 50's weather wise....BEFORE YOU SCREAM AT YOUR COMPUTER MONITOR, that's cold for 1:02 pm in the afternoon where we live. Come on now!

Anyhoots, I have seen this tag floating around YouTube, and I wanted to bring it to you all blog style. So, I tag everyone to do this on their own blogs, PLEASE! I am interested in how you will all answer! Enjoy!

1. Favorite candle scent?
My favorite fall candles are Leaves, Marshmallow Fireside, Black Pepper Bergamot, and 'Tis the Season, which is more of a winter candle, but it gets me pumped upfor Christmas.

2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
Coffee, without a doubt, I am addicted to the stuff! On really rainy days, though, we often make hot chocolate and watch the rain fall. I do like tea, though, and I've found this incredible Christmas tea from Twinings that I've grown to love.

3. What's the best fall memory you have?
This is tricky...I'd have to say going to the local(ish) pumpkin patch with my family almost every year is a great fall memory. I actually have a post about the place coming up very soon! It's called Bates Nut Farm. :)

4. Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?
Uhhhh...I have no idea what winged liner is, and when I think of it, I think of KISS. I'll go with that.

5. Best fragrance for fall?
Are we talkin' perfume? Because I love me some Brown Sugar & Fig spray from Bath & Body's incredible!

6. Favorite Thanksgiving food?
My grandma's mashed potatoes. I ask her every year right around, say, June, to make them for Thanksgiving, and promptly remind her each and every time I see her. :P

7. What is autumn weather like where you live?
Well, for the first part of October, it's usually pretty warm here in San Diego. It gets down into the 50's-60's around December, but it never ever snows. We always get smatterings of rain here and there, but otherwise, it's meh and sunny.

8. Most worn sweater?
I only own one jacket, and it's a basic black zip-up jacket. Boring, I know.

9. Must-have nail polish this fall?
I've loved Zoya's Tomoko, which is a PixieDust polish. I think it works well for every season, actually. I've also liked Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ from OPI, which is a deep red polish, as well as Sand Tropez from Essie, which is a neutral beige/brown.

10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Dumb question. I don't do football, and we don't get enough leaves, not even though to make a pile. BOO. I like to watch Charlie Brown fall flat on his face and kill himself every fall in his seasonal cartoons, though.

11. Skinny jeans or leggings?
I don't think you want to see me wear either of those, quite honestly, LOL. How about regular jeans?

12. Combat boots or Uggs?
One of the things I detest about San Diego weather is that, right when it reaches, oh, 68 degrees in October, ladies be bustin' out their Uggs, NO FAIL. LADIES, YOU DO NOT NEED UGGS IN THIS TOWN. That being said, I don't own combat boots, but I think I could pull them off if I did, so let's go with that
13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
Ehhhhhhh. If we're talking about the pumpkin spice latte, not really, but that doesn't stop me from getting roped in every damn year to stand in line like a sucker the first day they are available. I am such a sheeple. Pumpkin spice everything else, however, is incredible and screw you for even suggesting that it's not, Lauren.

14. Favorite fall TV show?
Not sure if this counts, but I LOOOOOOOOVE "Scandal." OMG, it is so *~dramasz~* and Kerry Washington is flawless.

15. What song really gets you into the fall spirit?
Silly, again. There are songs, and then there are Christmas songs. Ain't no FALL songs. Fall and Thanksgiving get swept away by the black hole vortex of Christmas. So, what song gets me in the mood for Christmas? Easy. ANYTHING BY KATE SMITH. That, or Michael Buble's entire Christmas album. Sing it for me, Bubbly!

HAHAH, I had fun doing this tag! Please do this on your blogs, friends! <3
