The other night I was scouring the internet for something, anything to inspire me. I was in my usual funk of I have things to say but don’t know what to write. I went through all of the writing prompts on Pinterest, tried to come up with a witty list, possibly entitled 20 Things To Do When You’re Home Alone That Doesn’t Involve Hulu or Netflix. Except, what is there to do besides catching up on Hulu and Netflix when you have the TV to yourself? I was about to give up when I clicked the refresh button on my Reader. Up popped a new post from Kristen over at Peaches and Poppycock. It was a tag! And she tagged me! ask and you shall receive. So, thanks Kristen! She put a limit on her word count, but you guys aren’t getting that lucky with mine.
So, without further ado:
favorite candle scent —Leaves by Bath and Body Works or Home Sweet Home by Scentsationals (you can get it at Walmart. it’s actually those wax cubes for the tart warmers. wax that smells good = candle)
coffee, tea or hot chocolate? — first of all, if i’m drinking coffee, it’s iced. second, I like all of those beverages so it just depends on my mood.
what is the best fall memory you have — i don’t really have one. early fall usually reminds me of school and sometimes i forget how old i am and i start to look for my backpack to get my homework started. old habits die hard, i guess. honestly, the only other thing that comes to mind is doing blogtober last year. i really loved that challenge (and a challenge it was!) and all of the people i’ve “met”/found because of it.
best fragrance for fall — Chloe by Chloe or Burberry Body
favorite Thanksgiving food — Stove Top stuffing. sorry, i’m just not a fan of the homemade ones. my aunt also makes this corn bread/pudding thing that i would eat the whole pan of if i could.
most worn sweater — i don’t wear a lot of sweaters because i’m always warm.
football games or jumping in leaf piles — ohh tough choice. i’m going to go with football games. we all know i feel about men in uniform.
favorite type of pie — apple or cherry, both with vanilla ice cream.
what is autumn weather like where you live — gorgeous. and the views aren’t bad either.
which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged liner — dark lips, hands down.
what song really gets you into the fall spirit — the monster mash?
is pumpkin spice worth the hype — it used to be and then starbucks thought it would be cute to release it in august. then dunkin donuts, for some reason, decided not to release their apple cider. NOT COOL. how else are we supposed to fight against the great pumpkin (spice)?
favorite fall TV show — does “You’ve Got Mail” airing on ABC Family (or wherever) count?
skinny jeans or leggings? — leggings if i could find a long enough, light enough sweater or tunic. otherwise, skinny jeans. who am i kidding? elastic waistband for the win.
combat boots or Uggs — gun to my head? Uggs. but really, riding boots.
Halloween: yay or nay — nay. or should i say nae nae?
fall mornings or evenings — do i have to choose?
what do you think about Black Friday? — it’s cool, but no thanks. too many people, too much pressure. i think it’s bullshit that stores are not giving their employees a chance to enjoy the holiday. opening at 6pm on thursday? by that time, my pants are still buttoned and i’m not looking for the fennel to help me to digest yet. #italiansolutions. i mean, what kind of shit is that?
one Fall 2015 trend you love — blanket scarves #baaaasicccc
