Sweater Weather

Through Angie at Lariats and Lavender, I found this cool list of fall-themed questions originally posted by Savannah at M A I E D A E !  I know it’s been a while – I’ve been very busy out enjoying the new season!  Like, for instance…

1. Favourite candle scent?

For fall, it’s all about apple cinnamon scents.  I’ll take any generic one, but the Spice candle from Bath and Body Works is fantastic!  When the weather gets colder, I like the Slatkin & Co. Fresh Balsam candle.  It reminds me of cold mornings in my small hometown of Vestal, New York.

2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?

Coffee!  I love coffee so much.  I will drink it any time of day, regular or decaf, latte or black.

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

I loved visiting the Jackson Pumpkin Farm.  It’s an enormous pumpkin farm with crazy displays, a hayride (a must!), spook barn, cider, donuts, baked goods, crafts, animals, oh it stretches on forever and it’s the most wonderful day one can spend up in Owego.

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

I have been rocking winged eyeliner for a long time now!

5. Best fragrance for fall?

I have long been a fan of Demeter Fragrances’ Mulled Cider perfume.  Sometimes I overdose on it!  It’s a beautiful, lingering, sweet scent!

6. Favourite Thanksgiving food?

My dad always loved having cheesecake for dessert!  I have to agree, it’s the best possible tradition!  Every year, I would make a no-bake Jello cheesecake “from scratch.”

7. What is Autumn weather like where you live?

A few days ago, it was freezing.  Today, it was muggy and 60 degrees!  It’s horrible and ever-changing!

8. Most worn sweater?

A few years back, I got an ivory-and-navy striped sweater at The Gap.  It was crazy expensive – something like $30!  I never spend that much on clothing!  Ah, but I love it and I wore it all the time.  It’s so simple and chic and comfy!

9. Must-have nail polish this fall?

Sinful Color’s Rich in Heart – a swirly, glittery chocolate brown.

10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?

Leaf piles leaf piles!!!  Football has never made any sense to me.  But I love raking!!!

11. Skinny jeans or leggings?

Leggings feel AWFUL.  I’m not sorry.  They’re gross.  They don’t keep you warm.  They don’t keep you covered.  They ride up and fall down and they’re just NOT COOL.  JEANS 4 LYFE

12. Combat boots or Uggs?
Combat boots only because of functionality.  UGGS are like big slippers and are just waiting to get destroyed by harsh city weather.

13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?

YES.  YES YES A MILLION TIMES YES.  I’ve already talked about this before, but I am always the first to jump on the pumpkin spice bandwagon!

14. Favourite fall TV show?

I like to rewatch Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the fall – or any time, really!!!

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

Any big band music will make it feel more like the holidays are approaching.  Artie Shaw, Ella Fitzgerald, George Gershwin…like they play at the Bryant Park skating rink!
