Autumn Tag!

I haven’t done a tag in a while so I thought I would do this one because autumn or as we more frequently call it in Canada, fall is my favorite season. I was tagged by: Jamie from Only Average Mom. And Jackie from Five Two Certified also did this tag.

So let’s get right into the questions...

Q- What is your favorite thing about autumn?
A- That’s easy; it would have to be the colors of the trees! I also love how sunny and cool it is. I enjoy Thanksgiving and making dinner with my family and carving pumpkins with my sister. And let’s not forget scaring myself silly with horror flicks on Halloween.

Q- What is your favorite drink?
A- That would have to be hot chocolate with marshmallows; I am actually dying to try this recipe for hot chocolate made with Nutella!  I also like a good mocha late´ or French vanilla cappuccino with a sprinkle of chocolate and cinnamon,  and the assortment of pumpkin flavored drinks that surface this time of year.

Q- What is your favorite candle scent?
A- My favorite candles are always the ones that smell like sweet delicious baked goods. Like apple pie or cupcakes.
Bath and Body Works

Q- What is your favorite fall lipstick?
A-I love the wines, plums, deep reds and burgundy lip colors for fall. My favorite right now is the color below called Raisin by Kiss New York.  I will have a fall lip colors post up tomorrow. To see my post on these lipsticks click HERE

Q- What is your go to fall moisturizer?
A-In the fall and winter it is still important to wear a moisturizer with SPF since the UV rays are still present so I wear the Aveeno daily moisturizer with SPF 15. My foundation and concealer also have SPF.

Q- What is your favorite go to color for the eyes?
A- I love gold eye shadow; I wear it all year but especially in the fall. I also like shimmery copper tones, ember and emerald.

Q- What is your favorite music to listen to?
A- My taste in music doesn't change with the seasons but rather with my mood. I guess I would have to say mainstream like Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Adele, Bruno Mars etc. When I meditate or I am in a mellow mood I listen to Classical music, when I feel like I need something more upbeat I listen to Hip hop, Dance/Pop, or Reggae/Dance hall and Soca. I also like Opera so you could say I have an eclectic taste.

Q-   What is your favorite outfit to wear?
A-I would say black stockings, (the opaque kind not the transparent kind), a nice knitted skirt, boots (maybe knee or thigh high), a nice top and a jacket/blazer, a bright scarf and some nice accessories.

Q- What is your favorite autumn treat?
A- I LOVE warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream.

Q- Where is your favorite place to be?
A- Taking a nice drive with my hubby, along a beautiful country road where I can see all the colorful leafs and just chill out and listen to some music. Sometimes you just need to break away from it all.

I tag anyone else who wants to participate in this tag. If you do leave me a link to your post so I can check it out :)


  1. Oh I love apple pie too. Such a great dessert. I'm visiting over from Only Average Mom. I did the tag too if you want to check it out. - Jenny

  2. Oh my gosh, hot chocolate with Nutella? I'm sold and I don't even need to hear anymore. Your picture of Tim Horton's cups reminds me of all of my Canadian pals that I worked with in Korea. They said that they missed Tim Horton's more frequently than they said they missed their families, haha. I like Tim Horton's, too, but there isn't one in my town!

    1. LOL Canadians are addicted to Tims (as we call it) I swear every street corner has one. I had Tims in Dubai! So I guess I am a true Canadian and addicted like all the rest lol.

  3. I love these Tags! Oooo I am a big hot chocolate milk junkie and I have never thought of making hot chocolate with Nutella! I am going to try this asap! I love Candles that smell liked baked good too I just love it when the home smells like you just baked a cake or cinnamon rolls :)
