Sweater Weather Tag

I saw this post over on Simply Sweet Melissa last week and knew that I had to do it. We are deep into the fall weather in Toronto so what better time to do it than now!
1. Favorite candle scent?
Hands down, Bath & Body Works Leaves. I went crazy last year and bought five with the fear they may not have them this year!

2. Coffee, Tea, or Hot Chocolate?
I hate coffee and hot chocolate seems more like a winter treat for me so I'm going with tea, though I don't drink too much of it.

3. Do you switch up your makeup routine for the season?
I don't switch up my routine at all. I probably should but ya, doesn't happen. Too lazy, too cheap. Keepin' it real.

4. Favorite Thanksgiving food?
Thanksgiving has long passed or us but it would be apple pie and stuffing!!!!
5. Hats or scarves?
For the fall, scarves. In the winter, hats AND scarves. For the record, we do call them toque's in Canada. :)

6. Most worn sweater?
It would probably be a white cable knit sweater from Joe Fresh last year. It's classic, warm and goes with anything. I'm also a huge fan of cardigans in the fall and own way too many than I care to admit. They come in handy at work as our office is freezing year round.
7. Must have Fall nail polish?
I don't wear too much nail polish but it would be Essie Carry On.

         Essie "carry on" for fall/winter. Just painted my nails this color.

8. Football games or jumping in a pile of leaves?
Hm...piles of leaves are scarce in Toronto so I am going to go with football games, although I never go to those either. :) I like both though!

Jumping into a pile of Leaves
9. Skinny jeans or leggings?
Skinny jeans. Leggings are mainly reserved for hanging out at home on the weekend. Plus, did you see the new study Harvard did where they confirmed that leggings are in fact, not pants. Hilarious.

10. Boots or Uggs?
Boots. I haven't been able to get on the Ugg train. Perhaps it's because I don't find them very practical in the snow so I would really only be able to wear them for a month or two. Can you tell I am a practical person? ha!
11. What is your #1 favorite thing about Fall?
I love the cooler temperatures and being able to wear boots and scarves. I know a lot of people don't like fall because it means winter is on it's way but there's something exciting about that to me!

sitting in sweaters, down throws and steaming cups of hot cocoa, looking at the trees and leaves, that wonderful smell of autumn in the air, nothing like it.
12. Do you have a song that gets you in the Fall mood or just a song you're loving at the moment?
This doesn't get me in the mood for fall but Zara Larsson has a REALLY good voice.

13. What is the Fall weather like where you currently live?
It's chilly. Crisp air. Windy. Usually around 0-5 degrees though some days can be upwards of 10. It's really all over the map and mornings are definitely chilly. Pants, jacket and scarves are a must!!!

I tag all of you!


  1. This is cool, I may have to do this next week! I am so with you on hoarding products that I'm afraid they might not get again haha

  2. There's lots of leaves in the parks in Toronto! And in areas away from the downtown core. I can't jump on the Uggs train either. They're just not pretty...

  3. I don't know if I saw the Leaves candle when I was there. I did, however, get Peach Bellini, and I'm obsessed with it!

  4. I'm still waiting for fall... I think it's coming today but leaving again by the weekend. And I don't get uggs, either! They look like slippers to me!

  5. I will have to do this... when fall finally hits here in Houston! My ugg boots are my favorite. They are literally sweater for my feet: http://www.uggaustralia.com/women-boots/classic-cardy/5819.html?dwvar_5819_color=GRY#start=96&cgid=women-boots

    No shame in my game :)

  6. I'm totally a lover of Leaves as well, currently burning it in my office today!! Have a sweet Tuesday friend! :)

  7. I love that nail polish shade!!! And agreed about Uggs...not practical at all!

  8. I'm a hoarder of cardigans too...I just can't help it!
    And I can't get on the ugg train either, probably because they're so darn expensive just to track through snow and slush here! I bought the fake ones a couple of years ago and they're doing me just fine for now! :)

  9. LOVED this post! Fall is my favorite season and we don't get it in Hawaii! :)

  10. It's seriously 0-5 degrees where you live? Wow, that's cold! I don't switch up makeup either. I don't know what I would change! haha I'm pretty fashion challenged. And how do you pronounce toque? I'm going to say that word to my Canadian neighbor!

  11. just stole this for my blog post tomorrow :)

    loved your answers,similar to mine! uggs,i don't get them either!

    Fall is the best!

  12. Such a cute post! I live in scarves this time of year! It was so cold the other day I busted out the hot chocolate. Love that nail polish color.
