I Love Fall Tag

I was tagged by beauty bloggers Ashley of Ashley Sue Makeup and Margo of PrettyPandaMakeup 
to do a 'I Love Fall Tag'. I usually don't do tags, but I SUPER LOVE FALL. So here it goes...

1. What is your Favorite Fall Month?
October. I love the cooler temperatures, food, decor and all the FUN it brings. Plus I love Halloween.

2. What did you dress as for Halloween last year?
I haven't dressed up in the past 2 years. I was out of town last year. I might do something easy this year, but I can't promise anything because my home is being remodeled. But before that I was Cleopatra, a doll, pink lady (Grease) and flapper. I definitely plan on dressing up next year. I already have a theme I want to do.
3. What is your favorite Fall food?
That's a loaded question (for me). HaHaHa I love homemade soups, seafood gumbo (Blog Post Here), steaks, pies, candy apples (Mrs. Prindables) and EVERYthing Thanksgiving. HaHaHa But I also love fruits of the season such as harvest apples, pumpkins, and gourds.

4. Do you have any Fall traditions?
Yes. I love decorating my home (inside and outside) with a Fall door wreath, real pumpkins, pine bark mulch and candles. Blog Post HERE. I also love various scents of the season!

5. What music do you like to listen to during Fall?
Every year I listen to my favorites, such as Michael Jackson's Thriller, The musical Wicked, The Addams Family Musical and Nightmare Before Christmas.

6. What is your favorite Fall outfit? 
I like to wear simple dresses and skirts with tights. It's practically my uniform. HaHaHa But I also like blazers, trouser pants and dark denim. I keep things really minimal.

7. Favorite scary movie? 
I can't do gory movies! LOL The Exorcist still gets to me (and don't even talk about the newer movies (LOL). I love vintage classics (on Turner Classic Movies) such as Dracula (Bela Lugosi), The Mummy (Boris Karloff), House Of Wax (Vincent Price), The Nightmare Before Christmas, Halloween, Sleepy Hollow, Corpse Bride, Friday The 13th, Creature From The Black Lagoon and It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. LOL

8. S'mores or Pumpkin Pie? 
In New Orleans, many people eat Sweet Potato Pie. It's so good. A lady by the name of Tee Eva makes them upon order and they are DELICIOUS. Blog post HERE.

9. Hot Chocolate or Warm Apple Cider?
I'm a hot chocolate girl! With marshmallows! Lots of them. It doesn't matter the size! Blog post HERE.

10. Do you like Pumpkin Spice Lattes? 
They're a little sweet for me. I did a blog post about them two years ago HERE.

11. What is the best thing about your town during Fall? 
New Orleans has a lot of fun Fall Food Festivals this time of year, but I love seeing how people decorate their homes each year. The creativity is amazing. Blog posts HERE and HERE.
12. Tea or Coffee? 
I'm a tea girl and was currently introduced to loose teas by fellow blogger Jo of White Roses and Coffee. No going back for me and I love the flavor 'Birthday Cake'. You can read about it HERE.

13. Cats or Bats? In real life, neither really. HaHaHa I'm a dog girl. But if we're talking about Halloween, I always enjoyed cutting out paper black cats & bats as a child and decorating. I also feel black cats are GOOD LUCK (the opposite what people think).
14. Do you enjoy carving jack-o-lanters? I did it once, when I was really young. The pumpkin was HUGE and from a farm. I swore, I would never do it again. LOL I think if it was smaller it wouldn't have been so challenging.
15. Do you enjoy visiting graveyards? Ummm, not the run down ones. LOL Many well kept cemeteries are pretty. Speaking of graveyards, I wrote a blog post about THE BLOG GRAVEYARD.

16. What is your favorite Fall memory? 
The beautiful Trick or Tea at The Windsor Court Hotel. Visiting a pumpkin patch in Hammond, Louisiana. Shopping for Fall things on a beautiful day :)

17. Gloves or Mittens? Cute gloves, like these Kate Spade's.
18. Do you enjoy the other seasons? Yes, I like Spring :)
19. How do you plan to spend this Halloween? At home, with snacks and watching movies.
20. In ONE sentence...WHY do you love Fall so much? The temps are cool and it's FUN!
21. What is your favorite Fall makeup look? Berry/Wine colored lips & nails

22. What is your favorite Fall candle scent? 
I love foodie scents :) So Yankee Candle and Bath & Body Works usually satisfy my candle cravings. Here are a few I currently have and loving.

23. Do you enjoy cold weather? I like COLD WEATHER. I dislike FRIGID, ICY WEATHER.
24. What is your least favorite thing about Fall? When it changes into WINTER. LOL

25. What is your favorite Halloween candy? 
Snickers! Honestly I don't eat a lot of candy. I always like to visit Godiva and pick up one of their specialty themed boxes and I love cookies. So I usually stop by the Great American Cookie Company and pick up a few cookies. Blog posts HERE and HERE.

26. What is one thing you'd love to try during Fall, but haven't? 
I want to visit The Hotel Hershey in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Literally a chocolate town with chocolate themed everything. Chocolate Spa. Candy and More. It's on my To-Go-To-List!

I tag anyone that loves Fall and would like to answer these fun questions.
You can do a video or written blog post.


  1. I'm so happy you did this tag Kim! I loved all
    Your answers and the pictures too!
    I loved seeing your Halloween costumes.
    A chocoalte town sounds amazing! And I love
    Sleepy hollow and nightmare before Christmas!

  2. This was a fun read Kim! :)

    My son got a gift of these little 'first word' books and they cover all kinds of things. There are 4 that have seasons, and the autumn one has all the things you've talked about here. They must be from the US. It's strange though as autumn for us is cuddly bunnies and Easter eggs, for Easter, where the book talks about pumpkins and trick or treating and Halloween (Which is spring for us).

    Maybe that's why Australians don't get into Halloween much - they want colourful decorations for spring, not spooky dark ones haha!

  3. Okay, I'm ready for it to be October already, because your post on this has got me pumped! Hehe, let all the goodies be baked, costumes be created, and fall-scented object infiltrate my house!

    Wow, thats a lot!! I'm a dog girl, too Kim! And I love hot cocoa. I love to enjoy it while reading a good book. Happy new week, love!

  5. I love this Kim, so many great things to learn about you - keep cool ;-)


  6. This is a great tag, I feel like I learned a lot about you. The US/Canada do Halloween & Fall so much better than the UK & I wish we celebrated it more. I love decorating my house & the fall food is a winner!! P.s how gross is Pumpkin Spice Latte!

  7. You rock those costumed for Halloween, I also love Pumpkin Spice is must be so much fun in New Orleans on Halloween.

  8. I love Halloween. Would be brilliant to be in New Orleans for Halloween as well, it looks perfect. Yes, sweet potato pie, girl we can eat it all, hahaha!! You know I love those ones from Tee Eva's the best ever pies!! So delightful and sooooo good!! If I lived closer, I would be at her door first thing, hahah!! Loved all your costumes as well, can't wait to see this years :))) Hope you are doing well my dear Xxx

  9. Oh wow, this post has got me so excited for all that Autumn has to offer! Your previous Halloween costumes were so much fun and a great big YUM to the idea of warm apple pie!! :)

  10. Ah Kim, I love fall too and I wish I was there since I believe is so picturesque and more felt than here where I live. You looked amazing as Cleopatra and Im a hot chocolate girl as well, still remember ur past posts about Halloween decorations, my fav ever of u!

  11. Awesome answers, Kim:) I like reading tags coz it really tells a lot about someone, you know? Like, I know now that we both love the musical Wicked, and think that Pumpkin Spice Lattes are too sweet. (Man...that thing is like syrup!)

  12. Oh I am so on seafood gumbo. I definitely need to make seafood gumbo soon. I haven't been to New Orleans, but we have this amazing Cajun place in town and it's so good that I've been trying to learn to make my own gumbo so I don't spend all my money there, hahaha. I do like some sweet potato pie, too and agree that psls are too sweet!

  13. What a fun tag! I really enjoyed reading your answers and it was awesome seeing some of your past Halloween costumes. You made a gorgeous Cleopatra girl :) I'm like you and can't do scary movies either. I still shudder even if we flip past The Exorcist on tv.

  14. Hello dear! I love fall for the same reasons too! It's nice to be in such cool, not cold weather and enjoy the bounty of the seasons - pumpkins, apples, and of course Thanksgiving as well!

  16. This is such a fun post, Kim - tea drinkers unite :) I love all of your Halloween costumes, especially Cleopatra. I'm not much of a halloween girl myself and haven't dressed up for years but I think it's great when people have fun with the holiday.

  17. Kim, I can see from your post that you're such a fun-loving person. Congrats on the tag, dear! xoxo

  18. What a fun read! Fabulous Halloween costumes. The old classic horror films are great to watch! I can't watch modern ones because they freak me out, but the old black and white I can handle. Your Baileys mug is the cutest. I have always wanted to Hershey too. I believe there is a restaurant where chocolate is part of every course!

  19. Seems to enjoy much in your city with the arrival of autumn, at this time in my city is spring and do nothing special, not decorate our homes, but some do celebrate Halloween happens that day in my city celebrates the Day the folk song then some decide to celebrate this date!

  20. fantastic post my dear, this tag is so nice! :D

  21. Hi Kim and Happy Monday.
    I really enjoyed this post today and learning more about you. Fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving are all a wonderful time of year.
    Have an awesome week.

  35. I love fall and yes October is my favorite month or at least it use to be seems fall comes later and now it is the fist 2 weeks of November that I really like. I gave up on Halloween it cancelled two years in a row due to bad weather :O

  36. I love fall too, the colors and the temperature, not too hot, not too cold, just perfect.
    The Hershey place is also on my list as well :)
    We have sweet potato pie around here too, one of our favorites!
    Happy Fall :)

  37. Love all your pictures Kim! Sweet potato pie is one of my favorite Fall desserts! It's so delicious!

  38. I love reading these Kim! Me too, I don't do horror movies and I love dogs. I like fall, but I think you like it more. I prefer spring/summer so I can wear my dresses. Btw, how's your renovations coming along?

    xo Jo

  39. I love Fall too! We don't really celebrate Halloween here, maybe some night club trows a Halloween themed party but I don't go to nighclubs anymore and besides I don't see the point as I never celebrated it...but every tradition is fun and there are other traditions I really enjoy so I know Halloween must be a lot of fun for a lot of people..I bet it is pretty neat to see how others have decorated their homes.

  40. This is such a great tag! I love fall too because my birthday is at the very beginning of fall. It has always made the changing season extra special for me. I can't do gory movies either. I love classic scary movies, though! I imagine New Orleans is an interesting place to be during Halloween! I lived in south Mississippi for a large portion of my life, so I've enjoyed many trips to New Orleans. It's a wonderful and unique place!

  41. This is the post I was waiting for :-) Since I started reading your blog ( almost 4 yrs lol) I've always been in awe of how intensely you live Fall. The decorating, the food, the Halloween themed makeup, chocolate with marshmallow (I didnt even know this combination existed), and the amazing makeup you choose (dark, intense colours are so flattering on you!). I'm not a fan of Fall, because transitional seasons have a bad effect on my nerves. However I love cozy homewear, hot scented baths and sweet smelling candles (you treated me to a Cinammon Apple candle and I've been looking for an equally fabulous alternative ever since. I also love how your Fall posts make me feel good on gloomy days like today. Thank you. Baci,
