Subscription Services + LBB Giveaway!

Over the past few years, I have tried various different types of subscription/monthly services, so I thought I'd do a little review of all of them for you. I looked at ipsy/myGlam, Birchbox, Glossybox, Graze boxes and Little Black Bag over on my Subblime campaign. In addition, I have a giveaway up for a free bag on Little Black Bag! It's a really awesome service thatI'm excited to try myself, so we can try it together! :) x

Sweater Weather Tag

So this tag has been going around YouTube lately and so I thought I'd turn it into a blog post because, well, I said I'd use this blog and then failed so what else is new? ;)

1. Favorite candle scent?
Leaves and Cider Spice from Bath & Body Works are two of my favourites this time of year. 
2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
Honestly, I absolutely love all of them. Of them all, I'm always down for some hot chocolate. I particularly love Starbucks hot chocolate with pumpkin spice instead of vanilla syrup. Or, my current favourite, gingerbread hot chocolate. Mmm.
3. What's the best fall memory you have?
I'd have to say trick or treating on Halloween with my dad. My brother would stay at home with my mom and help pass out candy and I would go out with my dad. I didn't even like candy that much, but it was a night I could always count of spending time with my dad. Also, school supplies shopping with my mom before the first day! 
4. Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner? 
I love both. I never wear too dark of lipsticks and I'm not great at winged eyeliner, but I'll probably say the latter.
5. Best fragrance for fall?
I own very few perfumes and use them very rarely, so I don't have an answer for this. 
6. Favorite Thanksgiving food?
(Vegetarian) stuffing and green bean casserole. Mmmm. I'm actually so thrilled that this year, I am not totally missing Thanksgiving and my family is coming the weekend before and we're going to cook a little Thanksgiving in my apartment. 
7. What is autumn weather like where you live?
Right now I live in Southern California, where it has been about 85ºF. So that's strange. I'm much more used to Seattle or London weather where it's just sort of drizzly, chilly and in the case of Seattle, very green. We get the pretty coloured leaves there too, but it IS the Evergreen State.

8. Most worn sweater?
My two favourites this year have been this mauve coloured zippered cardigan from Urban Outfitters and this burnt orange one from Forever 21.
9. Must-have nail polish this fall?
Working at Disney means that I don't really get to wear nail polish because it interferes with the show, so I'll just say the Dior Nail Glow. It's an overly expensive nail product that I fell in love with because it makes the nails look classy, while still looking natural. When I can wear nail polish, I'm all about You Don't Know Jacques by OPI.
10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Absolutely leaf piles. I steer clear of football (don't tell my family - just kidding they already know and don't understand me). 
11. Skinny jeans or leggings?
Hmmm, I really appreciate both. I was never into leggings until recently, but I'm really learning to love them. In the past, always skinny jeans.
12. Combat boots or Uggs?
I'm all about the combat boots. 
13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
Yes. I'll take pumpkin spice everything please.
14. Favorite fall TV show?
This year, the only show I'm really watching is Castle. 
15. What song really gets you into the fall spirit?
Autumn Sweater by Yo Lo Tengo is an autumn classic, but I mostly listen to Christmas music from September to December, soooo.
