Fall Fun Series

Hello there friends! It's been a bit since I have posted but I joined some friends in a fall tag - so I'll be much more consistent!  This will be a new post series that myself, and a bunch of old and new blogging friends will be engaging in this autumn season.  We will be covering fall wax melts, candles, polishes, and more. If you are a blogger and would like to join please let us know and we will send you a schedule of posts. I will still be incorporating polishes, but I thought this would be a fun way to get into the festivities of the best season!  

Please welcome the following bloggers and check out their posts as well which will generally post on Monday and Friday starting September and ending the day after Thanksgiving.  I'm not going to be able to do all of these, but will do all the ones I can do!

To kick off the first post we will do a Fall Tag!

1. What is your favorite thing about fall?
Cooler weather so I can wear boots, scarves and other fall fashion.  Copper colored polishes.  I wouldn't be honest if I didn't say PSLs too. 

2. Do you get fall colors where you live?
Unfortunately, only in the mountains here in AZ. I am from Pittsburgh so I grew up with the most beautiful fall foliage....I miss it so much!

3. Favorite fall scent (wax, or anything)?
I love the smell of wood fire in the air at night! For candles, I have some very specifics I recommend if you can find them: 
- Tailgate by Bath and Body Works - they discontinued it but was amazing!  
- Also, I adore the Farmer's Market (apple cider scent) candle by Everyday Luxe - the best fall apple scent EVER!

4. Favorite fall food or drink?
Pumpkin everything! Pies, PSLs, etc... Does Halloween candy count too?

5. Football.....yay or nay?
Huge YAY! 1000% 

6. Do you rake, jump in, or burn piles of leaves?
Not applicable in Arizona :(

7. Haunted house or corn maze?
Corn Maze

8. Have you ever gone on a hayride?

9. Cider or hot chocolate?
PSL! Between these...probably cider

10. Carve a pumpkin or eat pumpkin pie?
Eat pumpkin pie. I'd rather just design the pumpkin.

11. Do you dress up for Halloween?
Yes! If I could still Trick or Treat I honestly would.

12. Candy corn.....yay or nay?
Disgusting. No.

13. Favorite Halloween movie?
It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.  It's the only one I bother to watch in between football days.

14. Scariest movie?
Hmm not a big fan. I know there is another Blair Witch coming out and I remember that was the ish when I was a teenager and it freaked me out.

15. Halloween or Thanksgiving?
Halloween since family is across the country. But the past two years we have done a Friendsgiving and that is super fun.

16. Do you watch the Macy's parade?
Usually some of it.

17. Apple pie or pumpkin pie?
Pumpkin pie

18. White or dark meat?
White meat

19. Jellied or real cranberry sauce?
Jellied but I'll take either.

20. Will you host or travel for Thanksgiving this year?
Plan is to travel this year.

How about you? I would love to hear some of your fall tag answers! Our next post will feature some fall scents / first fall sightings in a store and I'll be back with a pretty polish too! Happy Fall, y'all!



  1. I will have to check out Everyday Luxe, not sure if I have ever seen that candle brand. Where do you get it? The Blair Witch totally freaked me out too. I think it came out when I was in high school? College? I think it is the sole reason my husband refuses to tent camp. RV's only for him. I can commiserate with the lack of fall around here too. Kinda stinks but short of moving there is nothing to be done. Though I do try to convince my husband we need to move to North Carolina. Looking forward to your copper polish recommendations. I have an OPI DS copper shade and an RBL Burn the Evidence and a Cult nails Blaze or something that I enjoy but those are mostly glittery coppers.

    1. Gah! I totally meant to mention that Everyday Luxe is TJMaxx/ Marshalls only, as far as I know. I don't have many from them because I am super picky but the 3 I have I am obsessed with! When they do a good scent they do it 100%!

    2. I was super intrigued about the Everyday Luxe candle too - I'll have to check for it the next time I'm in TJMaxx ..that farmer's market candle sounds like something I could happily melt.
      It is so great to read this post and I look forward to keeping up with your blog :)

  2. I'm with you on dressing up for Halloween. I don't bother now, but if were acceptable for adults to still Trick or Treat I definitely would!

  3. This is a fun feature! I look forward to seeing more and reading what what the other bloggers write as well!

  4. Welcome to Fall Fun! So happy to see another participant that is Yay on football:) Also on Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and many other answers. Looking forward to following along on this blog series:)- jaybird

    1. Excited for the game tonight! Even though I'm a Steelers fan

  5. I looooove fall, and I agree with like 80% of your answers haha!

  6. Welcome Hayley! So glad to see you join us!

    I need to find some copper colored polishes here. I have several in my big stash, but that stash is about 7,000 miles away. I would love to dress up for Halloween, too! Unfortunately Trick or Treating isn't a thing here in Korea.

  7. I love fall/ autumn I agree with pretty much everything exsept I would always choose hot chocolate over cider lol x

  8. Such a good idea for a tag. I love snuggling up in the colder months with a candle and a hot chocolate :) x
