OOOOh yesssss, finally Fall is here and Summer heat is on it's way out!!! Unfortunately, in Florida ain't no such thing as cool breezy nights. So I wanted to participate in Jaclyn Hill's Fall Tag anyway. I'm not on YouTube yet but couldn't miss this opportunity to talk about this autumn season. I really appreciate and miss NYC even more this time of year. The colors, trends, hair and makeup options. What more can a girl ask for???
Without further a do, come and reminisce with me. We are starting with my favorite Candles!!!! OOOh boy, now anybody knows me should know how much I adore Bath & Body Works. Let alone their candles!!!!!! I mean I should buy stock or something. My faves are Marshmallow Fireside, Pumpkin Cupcake & Pumpkin Maple Waffles. I couldn't just pick one. Now it took me a loooong time to choose these 3. These scents make me feel so comforted and cozy. Now since I can't get that authentic crisp Autumn air. I mimick it with blasting my AC and covering myself with a nice fluffy blanket on the couch. I burn each of these in a different area in the house. Marshmallow Fireside is in my bedroom. It is described as: rshmallows, smoky woods & sweet vanilla. To me its like a fine sexy man wrapped around me near a fireplace. It is such a seductive smell that warms your heart. Pumpkin Cupcake is in the kitchen. Package states:
FAVORITE LIP COLOR
Who doesn't love a sexy plump bold vampy lip??? If you don't then skip then on to the next one. I think about my lip first when doing Fall looks. Its just that time of yea to express your words. That's why we start the cuddling season. You gotta have that lip game on point. So when ya man sees you after a long day, he knows what time it is. Your time!!! Enough of the romantic novel talk. My combo pick is Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Trust Issues and MAC Matte Lipstick in Stone. I love them separately and together. I add Stone in the center of my lip. It just takes your bold and vampy look to another level. For that wet look add a clear gloss on top. In the cooler months sometimes you want your lips to have that moisturized mint feeling. So Bath & Body Works Mentha Lip Tint in Pink Tint. I know it looks pink but it doesn't change your lipsticks color at all. So I just dab a little in the center of my lip. FIERCE!!!
FAVORITE DRINK/BLUSH/FALL CLOTHING
Okayyyy so, My name is Samantha and I'm a Starbuckaholic!!! I get to Gold by 1/4 of the year and get I it renewed for the following year by the second quarter. That being said I like Salted Caramel Mocha and Oprah's Cinnamon Chai Latte. They are both warming to the soul. It brings such calmness with every sip. It just keeps all the negativity away with just the right before you bring the rim to your lips!!! Dramatic I know. That is the feeling and anticipation I get though when I am waiting in line. Being greeted with the usual is music to my ears. I keep 'em on their toes though by switching it up from time to time.
Hands down it has got to be BH Cosmetics Forever Nude Sculpt & Glow Palette in Medium/Deep! Another great alternative is BH Floral Blush Duo in Rose. You can't go wrong. You can wear the blush shade with every look you can conjure up this season. In the Duo its great because they have a highlighter shade that really compliments the blush. This will really bring your warmer makeup looks full throttle. I am an avid BH Cosmetics fan, due to the fact, that their products are not only inexpensive but awesome quality. Who can complain...I know I ain't!!! Keep up the good work. You definitely have a loyal customer in me.
Wow this was actually tough but I would have to say boots, sweaters, and scarves. It really ties your whole look together. I love how they can dress up or play down your ensemble, as well. The colors are vibrant enough to add that pop of color. If are you anything like me, I stay to a pretty much monochromatic way of dressing. By wrapping a bulky scarf all around you on top to gravitate the eye with some warm hues. Keeps you from looking washed out and too blah. Kind of like, making your viewers focused on a certain part of your outfit. Without really trying that hard. This way I can always enjoy my favorite pieces and not look as if I always wear the same. In the Fall, I love wearing tights and jeans all day. I will pair them with everything. No my boot game is on point!!! I wear em all!!! Any length. Any color. Any style. I have pretty much rocked them and will continue to. I don't play with my show game at all. My dream is to have the closet that Mr. Big built for Carrie in that penthouse. I do not want to share it either. Just for me. Please, tell me you guys remember that.
I don't celebrate Halloween butttt my father and I have always enjoyed those movies. Our all time hands down time pieces are the Chucky and Leprechaun series. When they start the marathons on TV in October, You can bet we will be watching them. Now this doesn't discredit Jason, Freddy, Michael, or Gremlins either. I am just gonna pick em all. I even like the classics before my time. For example: Carrie, Psycho, The Shining, Silence of the Lamb, and The Birds. The one I recommend everyone watching if you haven't already is The Wishmaster. Now this takes the cake for throwback!!! There are 4 movies total in this series. It has everything you need in a movie of this stature. Seriously, I want everyone to try and find these movies and watch it this season. Thank me later.
FAVORITE FALL SHOWS
I know everyone is saying Scandal, but this show is the truth!!! On Thursday nights, I start from Grey's Anatomy to Scandal and following How To Get Away With Murder. If my heart has not stopped due to Shonda's suspense. I then go to my DVR and watch The Blacklist. Now here is a show that I am totally obsessed with too. What I don't like is how they moved it from Monday to Thursday night. James Spader is the ultimate guy hands down. I miss tweeting with him and Hisham Tawfiq (Dembe) on Twitter. They make the show. I love Mr. Reddington's stories and how cool he is. He doesn't miss a beat!!! I was hoping that this season they would move it to another night. I guess I gotta get my fix the only way I can.
FAVORITE THANKSGIVING FOOD/COSTUME
Jaclyn surely did leave the best for last. Without further a due, my mother's stuffing is DA BOMB! I am sure everybody says that but mine is the realest. She got the recipe from Kelly Ripa's mother-in-law. We were watching her show one year. So we decided to spice up our dishes. Bring something new to the table. Ever since then my mother has made it her own. She puts her foot in it. over the years, mom has definitely put her own twist in it. Also, she makes sure she makes an extra batch for me to take home. Just for me. Now as far as the costume thing. It's not me. I don't celebrate this holiday.
If you have read the entire post, I truly appreciate you! I just really love Jaclyn Hill and her awesome personality. I didn't want to not participate since I wasn't going to upload any video. She is my friend in my head...(in my Wendy voice). I hope I did her tag justice and everyone enjoyed my faves. Enjoy this season the best way you know how. Just be safe, don't forget to spend time with the ones who matter. Keep in mind to keep the branches in your circle. Leaves don't last forever. Learn your lessons from them and move on. Leaves fall for reason. Love you.
Celebrating & Getting It 2Getha!!!
