1. Favorite candle scent?
This winter I've really been enjoying Entenmann's 3 Wick Candle in Butter Pound Cake. It's sweet and warm without being overly saccharine or overwhelming. I picked it up at CVS for $7.99 USD.
2. Coffee, Tea, or Hot Chocolate?
I drink coffee every morning, regardless of the season, but when it's chilly out, I love to make decaf in the evening and sip it whilst catching up on blog reading and TV watching. I also LOVE hot cocoa but I only have it every so often so it still feels like a treat.
3. Do you switch up your makeup routine for the season?
I'll throw in a more berry or red toned blush (NARS Sin, Tarte Natural Beauty) and I like to mix up my usual lipsticks with deeper tones.

Thanksgiving cold weather food?
SOUP! I really love making my version of The Olive Garden's Zuppe Tuscana when the temperatures drop. It contains kale (or collards, depending on my mood!), sausage, and potatoes and is extra tasty with a slice of toasted sourdough for dipping.
5. Hats or scarves?
Scarves! I love them. Throw one on over a plain shirt and boom - insta pizzaz.
6. Most worn sweater?
I have a seriously fluffy oversized pink sweater that I love! It's definitely not what I'd call figure flattering, but it's SO cozy and soft that I really don't care!
7. Must have Fall nail polish?
Revlon Plum Seduction because it's a brighter version of the deeper berry colors so popular in the colder months. I also love Revlon's Raven Red, which is a brownish red bordeaux creme.
8. Football games or jumping in a pile of
How about hockey games?? I'd watch hockey over football any day. I didn't tell y'all, but I'm a secret Canadian at heart. ;)
9. Skinny jeans or leggings?
Leggings. I wore a black pair to the P!nk concert and I've literally never been more comfortable at an event! It was awesome!
10. Boots or Uggs?
Boots! I love boots.
11. What is your #1 favorite thing about
I love the cozy factor! How you're bundled up in soft, warm clothes, sipping hot bevs, and ya know, NOT SWEATING. Love me some not sweating!
12. Do you have a song that gets you in the
Fall Winter mood or just a song you're loving at the moment?
Christmas music! I occasionally listen to Christmas music during the summer just to reminisce about the coziest time of year. I love Christmas music!
13. What is the
Fall Winter weather like where you currently live?
Not too bad, really. We very rarely have any snow (though we did have a major ice storm in 2011 that shut down the city for almost a week solid! That was kind of amazing since I've never seen anything like it!) and it's not too unbearably cold. We had weather in the teens for a week or two a few years ago and that was REALLY unpleasant. We just don't have the apparel for weather that cold here so going to work in my unlined "business trousers" wasn't that fun! We have lots of yankees here who love the southern "winter" and think it's hilarious that anyone finds it cold. It's not that unusual to see someone wearing shorts in December. That's how you spot a northerner!
This is my last post of 2014! Wow! Where did the year go?!
