The sweater weather identify

I’ve seen this identify on many blogs including: hey there Kaily, polished by Amy,  rylie*style, chicandpolished, but to name a few!  I love autumn and I intended to do this identify at least a week ago, but here’s the thing about the changing season: it brings out the laziness in me.  This whole week it has been SO tough to even drag myself out of bed – and I’m usually a Jump Outta Bed, Let’s get This Day started kind of person.  Alas, I was actually identified to do this by Ryane Zamora Beauty and Natalie’s appeal Base so I made a decision to finally jump into the proverbial pile of leaves as well.

Firstly, here’s a spooky photo I took in Capilano, BC during an autumn check out a few years ago:

I entered a calendar photo contest at work and I won with this entry and the image is appropriately for the month of October so I get to see this image all month long!  Now, onto the Tag…

1. favorite candle scent?
I don’t really burn candles (as previously explained, I have this phobia about depleting a room’s oxygen supply when burning candles) but I like smelling them.  For Autumn, I like crisp apple scents.  I got caught up in all things autumn this year when I went into BBW and gotten a couple of tiny candles and a cute little owl candle holder:

I picked up Pumpkin Apple and autumn which both feature apple notes.  I will try to burn them this autumn / wintertime (I say this to myself every season) to appreciate them more, but besides, does any individual else find that candles don’t smell as good when they’re burning vs just in the jars?

2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
Coffee is a year-round beverage for me so it can’t be counted in the consideration. So the natural choice for me is tea.  Every Autumn, I ramp up my tea conception – I take pleasure in drinking teas with a spicy kick, especially ones featuring cinnamon, peppermint or ginger.  My top 2 tea picks and ones I always stock in my cupboard are Teavana Zingiber Ginger Coconut Rooibos Tea and The good earth sweet & Spicy:

3. What’s the best Autumn memory you have?
September is when I met my SO, so the best memory of Autumn is of us beginning to date. What’s better than meeting up for brunch or sushi dates on a amazing crisp autumn day?  (awww *gag*)

4. Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?
I love the look of dark lips against paler skin. I want to rock the look this year and I intend to finally bust out my MAC party Line lipstick for this purpose.

It’s so daunting to me to wear dark lips though!

5. best fragrance for Autumn?
I like warmer scents when the temperature drops so notes of vanilla and light musk are a lot more of what I gravitate toward.  I wear Prada Candy (caramel musk) a lot more frequently now.  I’m also considering getting Donna Karan Cashmere Mist – by description alone, it’s not normally a scent I’d like, but I received a sample of it and on my skin it’s smells soft and comforting.

6. much-loved Thanksgiving food?
Stuffing and mashed potatoes with gravy. I could just eat a plate filled with those items and skip the turkey altogether.  You didn’t ask, but I’ll tell you what Thanksgiving food I DON’T like: pumpkin pie.

I hate the taste and the texture. adding whipped cream on top of it does not help disguise either of those qualities.

7. What is autumn weather like where you live?

It’s fairly stereotypical autumn weather – it’s amazing and crisp and all the leaves start turning fiery shades of yellows, oranges and reds. It can get quite windy.  And layering clothes is vital considering that the mornings will start off quite amazing and by afternoon when the sun is out, it gets warm enough to not need a jacket or scarf anymore.  Right now we are experiencing a cooler than normal temperature range at around 15°C for the daily high (~60°F) and we have overnight frost warnings.

8. a lot of worn sweater?
Is not a sweater per se but a hoodie jacket in a sweatshirt material from the Canadian yoga apparel brand Titika.

It’s just like this one but mine is in a red / orange colour and it’s got a belt.

9. must-have nail polish this Autumn?
I’ll go against the grain and not name a dark vampy shade – I’ll say a good beige or caramel creme shade! (check out polished by Amy’s post about autumn nail trends)  A few good options: Nails Inc Basil Street, Nicole by OPI southern Charm, and Essie brooch the Subject.

10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Here’s one thing you must know about Canadians – we don’t care about football here.  Sorry Americans, it’s all about hockey here.  And well, ideal now it’s also about baseball considering that the blue Jays are doing so well.  We also like basketball or soccer over football.  So I guess the answer to this question is: the sport of jumping in leaf piles.

11. skinny jeans or leggings?
Calça justa. I don’t own leggings. and until maybe 3 years go I didn’t own skinny jeans either. I just didn’t like skintight bottoms, but then I gotten a pair of tall riding boots and needed some pants to wear with them.  Skinny jeans aren’t my go-to pants of choice but they do look good with tall boots.

12. combat boots or Uggs?
Neither, I have ankle boots, riding style boots and booties, but I don’t own combat boots or Uggs. I have nothing against combat boots – it’s just not my style.  And Uggs… UGGGH, don’t get me started except to say: Uggs are NOT indicated for outdoor wintertime usage.  They look so absurd and I hope they all get ruined by salt stains.

I am thinking of getting a pair of Blundstone boots though – they’re a bit a lot more rugged than I usually go for, but I like how they look.  Has any individual owned a pair?

13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?

Pre-2015 PSL was worth the hype! I finally tried the new reformulated PSL at Starbucks a few weeks ago on the first day of autumn and it was a disappointingly boring sugary flavour without the warmth or spice.  However, I must say that disappointment prompted me to try a new flavour called Toasted Graham Latte (TGL) and that has now replaced PSL for me.  It is a warm, sweet, and comforting treat – like if BBW and Starbucks got together and made one of the BBW candles into a drink.

14. favorite autumn TV show?
I don’t really enjoy TV or follow any shows so I’m sorry I can’t answer this question! I know that my bf likes to enjoy walking Dead and game of Thrones so I guess that’s what WE are looking forward to.

15. What song really gets you into the Autumn spirit?
Not really sure if there’s an autumn song, but I mean it’s the songs that we’d listen to when we went back to school (university) so they’re all usually drinking songs.  Here’s one: home for a rest by Spirit of the West

I just observed a couple of questions missing from this version that I saw on Ryane’s post so I’ll add them now:

Favorite type of pie?
Maçã! preferably à la Mode.

What do you think about Black Friday?
In Canada, Black Friday isn’t associated with Thanksgiving considering that our Thanksgiving occurs in October. So Black Friday never used to be a thing at ALL. and about 5 years ago, merchants here started using special Black Friday sales in November to coincide with the American Thanksgiving, and they even started opening early just like in the US. I’ve only started to partake in Black Friday a couple of years ago – generally at Sephora (are you surprised?) – I even went to the malls early to get the best deals. I got some good stuff and overall, I’d say that I gotten lots of stuff I didn’t really need. the most beneficial item I gotten on Black Friday is my wintertime coat from Aritzia and I only got 10% off it. This year I won’t be going out due to my No-Buy!

And finally, considering that this is the sweater weather Tag, this is the kind of sweater I’d like to wear these days:
