Holy moly, it has been a while. Oops. Sometimes life gets in the way and current favorites have to wait. But, here we are!
I have decided since we are knee deep in fall and leaves and chilly mornings here in Colorado, I would turn this favorites post into a fall faves. It’s fall and these are the things I am currently loving so let’s jump right into my fall faves.
I love doing these posts and I love reading other posts similar to this because I love trying new things and I love sharing what I’m trying that I am loving so that you might be able to find a new favorite as well.
We have a lot to cover so let’s get started.
Food and Drink:
Honey Crisp Apples
I am a super picky person when it comes to apples. I eat apples for probably one month our of the entire year, maybe two months. Honey Crisp and Gala apples are my preference and during October and November they are delicious and perfect and tasty and sweet and not mealy. There is nothing worse than a mealy apple.
I am allergic to dairy. I don’t really let it affect my life very often because I still eat dairy. But, one thing that I can’t do is drink regular milk. I enjoy almond milk and I enjoy coconut milk but let me tell you about oat milk. Now, if you are fancy enough that you make your own oat milk, you fancy! Not me, I’ll buy mine and I was thrilled when I saw this in the stores.
Here’s the thing with oat milk. It is thicker and richer and more the consistency of real milk and it’s delicious. If you are looking for a dairy milk alternative, check it out.
Makeup and Body:
I had been looking at this primer for a while and finally decided to bite the bullet and get it. It is awesome and a little bit goes a long way. It really helps my makeup to go on smooth and not settle in fine lines. It blurs well and isn’t oily or greasy is any way. It just melts into your skin and provides the perfect base.
I decided to give this a shot after hearing from a number of YouTubers and beauty bloggers as well as friends who had tried The Ordinary brand that it was a must try. I decided on this particular formula for my needs. I have combination skin but it tends to get drier in the winter months and I am looking for something that protects my skin and helps with aging. I love this product.
I wake up and my skin is soft and supple and it doesn’t break me out and I just love the feeling and look of my skin after I use it. The only thing is that for me, I have to be careful using it on my chin. I really focus it, and a little goes a long way on my cheeks and forehead.
I know I say this a lot but I continue to get questions and comments on it so I will continue to say it. I don’t wear full coverage makeup. Ever. I don’t own it. It’s a personal preference for me. I prefer to wear a tinted moisturizer or a light powder. Even CC Creams are too heavy for me much of the time. So, I was looking for a new tinted moisturizer to try and decided to give the Sephora brand a shot after I read multiple good reviews on it.
I love this product. The color is light and it smooth’s onto the face without settling. There is no caking. It leaves my skin feeling light and airy and not heavy or cakey. Highly recommend if you are looking for a light coverage product that moisturizes but doesn’t leave your skin oily and sits well on the face.
I am loving cool purple toned lip colors right now. I prefer cool toned colors in general on my skin but this purple crazy has taken hold of me and I am loving these colors. I came across this shade on an Instagram add and I was hooked. I had never order from Beauty Bakerie before but I had to have it.
This isn’t an everyday color for me but it is so gorgeous. It is the perfect purple, mauve, shimmer color for fall and winter and I think it is perfect for so many skin tones. A perfect festive touch of gorgeous for your holiday outfits!
For the Home:
I’m obsessed with Bath and Body Works candles. I’ve said it before. But this one. This one is my all time favorite. I love it. In fact, I have two of them (maybe three) currently set up to be burned each night around our house. I don’t do anything lightly. I want full-blown all out in your face scent of the holidays whenever I walk in a room or down the stairs or wherever and these candles are simply the best. Candle day is December 1 y’all! Who’s ready!
Nothing says fall or the holidays like apple cider. I love the pine scent for Christmas but right now, I can’t get enough of the apple cider scent. I have an all purpose spray in this scent in every bathroom in our house and in our kitchen right now. Apple cider everywhere!

Clothing and Accessories:
I just love these sneakers y’all! I have so many pairs and I am always wearing them in the parks. Yes, they are indeed that comfortable and they go with so many things! I am wearing the red glitter sneakers for several of my holiday outfits. The black and the white go with everything and I honestly have to say that the neon yellow are probably my favorites! So adorable and perfect with my Steamboat Willie outfit from our Disneyland trip.
I have been wanting to get a smaller backpack to have when we go to dinners or nights in the parks when I might not need to carry around my huge park bag and could get away with something smaller. I love Dumbo so much and I just adore this Dumbo Loungefly mini backpack. I purchased this on Box Lunch’s website and they have a huge selection of Disney inspired backpacks and things.
I used it for the first time in our trip to Disneyland and I used it our entire trip! I am obsessed with this smaller backpack idea and am hoping to eventually transition to that for most days in the parks and not have my huge backpack all the time.
I love Poupee Stitch. She creates fun and amazing ears and I’m so thrilled to have finally decided to go ahead and pick up these Steamboat Willie Ears. I love them! They are perfect and I can’t wait to wear them again and again! Not only are they adorable but they are also incredibly comfortable and lightweight.
Those are just a few of the things I am loving right now. I hope you found something you want to check out and maybe add to your favorites.
Thank you for stopping by and for the love of the mouse, never forget, that it all started with a mouse.
