Blotober has started, and so has my attempt to write 31 posts – one blog post daily – for the month of October.
Before we dive into a month of serious writing, I would like to share some fall-inspired details about my favorite season.
Thank you to the lovely Ell from Boss Girl Bloggers for these prompts!
What is one candle you MUST light every fall?
The Perfect Autumn is my favorite candle to light during this season! Spiced pumpkin, fresh cranberries, clove and apple scent fills the room when I light this delicious smelling candle from Bath and Body Works. My second favorite is the Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow candle again from BB Works.
When you think of fall, what does it remind you of?
It reminds me of pumpkins, orange and yellow colors everywhere, PSL, freshly baked apple/cinnamon pie (which we get at Apple Hill always), boots, scarves, and cooler weather.

What is your all-time favorite fall/Halloween movie?
Hocus pocus – I hate scary movies but comedy scary, I can handle.
What Halloween costume do you have in mind?

What is your favorite fall trend?
Jeans, plaid shirt, scarves, and boots. It isn’t much of a trend as it is a typical fall season attire, but I prefer comfort over style therefore I stick to the basics.
When you think of fall, what drink comes to mind?
Almost always, I think of pumpkin spice lattes. It is a must-have and most awaited drink of the season. However, this year so far, every time I had PSL at Starbucks, it tasted different; super sweet, and just not how I remember it. So I have decided to go back to my every-day, second favorite drink: Cinnamon Dolce Latte.
What is your go to fall beauty product? A must have staple!
Okay so beauty products and I don’t mix! I am embarrassed to admit that I am a make-up neophyte who does not experiment with shadows, or colors. I stick to a basic make-up routine which pretty much remains the same all year round (except a different shade of foundation between summer/winter). Truth be told, I have never used the eye-shadow on my own, except when applied by a MUA during my wedding! 😊
Do you prefer apple pie or pumpkin pie?
I like them both; apple pie at random times, and pumpkin pie as a Thanksgiving must-have!
Do you have any fall traditions? If so tell us all about it!
We do not have any major traditions; however, we have visited the local festival and pumpkin patch with our oldest daughter for the past 3 years. However, this year we have decided to do some serious Halloween and home decorations, go trick-o-treating for Halloween with both our girls, and go apple picking.
The moment of truth, is fall your favorite season?
Yep! It is my favorite season! I was born and raised in the tropical Fiji Islands and the weather was always the same all year round. After coming to the States, I got to experience the various seasons and since then fell in love with the not-so-hot, not-so-cold, perfectly colored, and the amazing smelling fall season! 😊
