Fall Favorites Tag and Thierry Mugler Alien

YUP. It’s that time of year again…time for the Fall Favorites Tag!  The beautiful Monika@RocailleWrites tagged me, and I know I’ve done this tag before but…PFFTtt who cares…I’ve got NEW faves this year. And fall is my fave season, so I’m doing it again!

1. Favourite Fall Candle

White Barn Mahogany Teakwood High Intensity Intense Candle

White Barn Mahogany Teakwood High Intensity Intense Candle from Bath & Body Works! I mean it’s HIGH INTENSITY INTENSE….cracks me up…high intensity INTENSE like ME…AHAHAHAHA…anyways, it really is stronger than your average B&B Candle, I can vouch for that! And this smells like a men’s fragrance that’s so cozy and…chest pec-y  ;P

2. Favourite Fall Lip Color and #4. Favourite Blush

Easy! Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Kat Von D Everlasting Face Shaper Blush in Heartagram! They’re so pretty together! Matchy blush and lips is something I like doing. And I love Marc Jacobs lipsticks-so pigmented and comfy to wear. And Kat Von D’s blushes are pretty amazing actually, yet don’t get a lot of love for some reason? Or do they?They’re really soft, pigmented. blend beautifully and last forever…well worth looking into if you haven’t tried one yet and you’re looking for a new blush.

3. Favourite Fall Drink

David’s Tea

Tea. As soon as it gets chillier, I start to drink more tea. I love a good Earl Grey Tea Latte from Starbucks and will order that over a Pumpkin Spice Latte any day. PSLs are SO sweet and when I do have one, I’ll order it half sweet. Actually most of Starbucks coffee drinks are too sweet for me…and I’m trying to cut down on sugar. I’ve been enjoying most of the teas from David’s lately! So yummy, especially the Pumpkin Spice Chai and no sugar needed wahoo!

5. Favourite Fall Clothing Item

Merrell Hikers

My new Merrell Hikers! I love them…and will need them in a couple of weeks when we go back to Jasper! I wore  trail runners the last time we were there, and dudes…I could feel every rock under my foot I swear. Figured it was time to get proper hikers because we plan to go hiking a lot more in the future.

Gratuitous Jasper Porn Time now  😛

6. Favourite Fall Movie

Any scary movie…I mean it’s all about Halloween, right? I love Hocus Pocus but they NEVER FREAKIN’ SHOW IT up here anymore since it’s become really popular?!! The other day I caught The Cabin In The Woods and thought it was really clever for a horror show.

7. Favourite Fall TV Show

DAMN THIS SHOW IS SO GOOD. It’s like what I’ve always wanted from the Muppets. They’re REAL PEOPLE, like us! It’s so amazing, and every show just gets funnier and better. Watch it!

Plus, hello…I got to talk to my favourite muppet on Twitter the other day:

I’ll be Pepe’s polka girl any time  😛

8. Favourite Thanksgiving Food

Thanksgiving is already done here in Canada…it’s the second week of October here…and frankly it’s weird that it’s so close to Christmas for you Americans-like two holidays colliding. Anyways…. I like anything squashy and pumpkin in the fall…especially if they’re in SOUP. I’m on a huge soup kick at the moment and that’s all I want to eat.

9. Favourite Halloween Costume

sorry too old for that stuff, although I do have a Harry Potter Sorting Hat that I’ll put on to give out candy  😀

10.Favourite Fall Perfume

Thierry Mugler Alien

Thierry Mugler Alien

Thierry Mugler Alien

I was sent Thierry Mugler Alien a few weeks ago, because I guess the scent is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year. And to be honest I wasn’t excited about it because I’m not a huge fan of Angel, so I set it aside. Then one day, I decided to sniff the purple bottle.

It’s like ALIEN JASMINE-thanks Larie 😉  Jasmine on steroids? Sweet, sultry jasmine? I think you get the idea hahaha! And most days I’m not a huge jasmine fan, but I guess if you give jasmine some teeth like this stuff? I LIKE IT. Go figure.

Solar Accord, Jasmine Sambac, Green Notes, Cashmeran, Vanilla, Transparent Amber.

Thierry Mugler Alien is supposed to evoke feelings of: Mystery, Soothing, Magnetic. Eh…ok. All I know is that I am loving it, and I don’t know who I am anymore??!! It’s sweet, heady, vanilla that’s YUMMY and perfect for fall. Yup. It is. And it lasts forever too…I can still smell it on my clothes the next day.

There you go! Another Fall Favourites tag done and done! I tag anyone who wants to share their fall faves. And tell me about yours right here in the comments too! I love discovering new loves from you guys!


  • This is why I love you Tracy, you love the Muppets Show! No one (Besides my fam and we all watch it together every week) likes it. I think it is so hilarious! All this crap about the Muppets being sexualized etc and rumors that it is going to be cancelled are killing me! But yeah…Hocus Pocus is one of my top fave Halloween movies! 🙂

    • I love you to Margo! You’re like me 30 years ago HAHAHAHAHAHA. Ahem.
      I don’t think it’ll get cancelled-I just heard it was picked up for a full season of episodes so waahoooo!!!
      I love Hocus Pocus but it’s never on here…I might have to just buy the dang thing lol!

  • Kristi C.

    I can’t stand Angel but do love Alien! I haven’t tried Marc Jacobs lip products but that is a gorgeous color for fall! Adding to my Sephora check-it-out list! My favorite tea has long been Earl Grey but I’ve not tried a tea latte. I’m intrigued & will branch out the next time I go to Starbucks! Thanks for the suggestions!!

    • Alien is so good, right?! You need to check out Marc’s lipsticks! SO GOOD. I love Earl Grey too and that’s what I ask for-an Earl Grey Tea Latte and it’s so YUMMM. I hope you like it!

  • Awesome choice for the lipstick and blush, lady! I am doing a similar tag this weekend. The Belgian version, I guess.

  • Thanks for doing the tag, Tracy! Mmm, I love me some Thierry Mugler’s Alien too, and I really like Angel too, although I rarely wear it. I’ve never tried any blushes from Kat Von D! To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever tried anything from her range, although I did have a look at her concealers at one point and was impressed at how fair the fair shades were, if that makes sense. And I have maybe four of those David’s Tea mugs with infusers, they come in so handy – we’re big tea drinkers in this house too 🙂

    • Thanks for tagging me! I need to sniff Angel again…I think I might like it now hahaha! She does have a lot of fair shades for sure, as I think she’s pretty pale herself. Her blushes are pretty awesome. I need more mugs now hahaha they work so WELL.

    Ok trying to keep this short (HAHA). Fave #1 Have you tried Alpine Punch from David’s tea? If you haven’t and you enjoy tea, this is lovely. A friend got me hooked and then I passed on my addiction to my parents. Fave #2 and 3 Kat Von D’s eye shadow palette (the shade and light one) is the ONLY thing I’ve been using for months now, ever since I got it. She has an AWESOME black brush-tipped liner that is budge proof (Tattoo liner in trooper). It is easy to wing out and not look crazy – I am certainly not an expert winger, by any means. I just got the Give me Lip from Sephora (the small one, not the big one) and it has Kat’s famous “Lolita” liquid lipstick and I haven’t yet tried it but it’s supppppposed to be great. Fave #4 Fall coats! I just bought one that was made for me from Ricki’s yesterday. It is beautiful and I love it. It is black, wool, no belt (YAY), no buttons (yay) and silver zippers (uncommon for a wool coat) and a great collar. And suddenly clothes from Ricki’s look appealing to me again – they haven’t for some time, but let’s blame that on SUMMER, too, shall we? Fave #5 – last one, promise – has been the return of my favorite TV shows. Castle (Nathan fillion!!), Once Upon a Time, SHIELD, and Black List to name a few…definitely not enough time in one day to keep up with all of them AND keep the house running so guess what’s being neglected…. 😉
    Would have pegged you for a Halloweenie, Tracy! I have a good friend at work that loves dressing up every year, and he goes all out. It’s amazing.

    • LOL!!! No! Alpine Punch goes on my list! Marky has that Kat Von D palette and LOVES it too-it’s all she uses! Oh, I found a nice light down active jacket from Old Navy that I LOVE. Rick’s hey? I haven’t been there in forever! I need to watch some Castle-I never started it but I know I’d like it.
      You know, I should be a Halloweenie, hey? HAHAHA, but my immigrant parents never cared about it, so I just keep not caring I guess. Marky dresses up and I always helped her out and made her things, but never for myself lol.

  • HAHAHA it IS ALIEN JASMINE, dude, seriously. I should give it another sniff. I remember it being way too intense for me, but I don’t think I dared put it on, lol!

    I have to do this tag…which means photos…T_T

  • yea! psl are super sweet and all their other latte’s too. i haven’t had a starbucks drink in a while b/c of that. and they’re really caloric so i try and avoid. i know you can ask for no whip/half sweetness though so that sort of helps i guess.

    again. you make me wish i hadn’t poo-pooed my mom’s wish to go to jasper. i guess i’ll have to drag david there instead since she’s already gone

    oh yes!! thanks for reminding me about the muppets relaunch! making a note to check it out.

    • They’re just so SWEET I always ask for half sweet because seriously WHY 4 pumps of that shite man?!!
      You guys should go! It’s so amazing. We’re going back mid November again. Jasper is less touristy than Banff. More hiking.

  • dowantmakeup

    I loved all your Jasper photos. I remember doing rest stops there when driving to/from Edmonton as a kid but we never actually explored the area.

    ALIEN JASMINE I WANNA TRY IT. I love jasmine so I gotta check this out.

    • I love Jasper more than Banff…its less commercial and real.

  • Ooh, that berry blush and lipstick combo- so gorgeous! I haven’t watched the new Muppets show yet, but totally should. And I definitely have to give Alien a whiff, as Angel is one of my all-time faves 🙂

    • Muppets ROCK!
      And yes….sniff Alien..I’ve been wearing it for weeks now. All my clothes smell like it now hahaha.

  • Lily

    That fall blush and lipstick – dude, I’d wear them all year round!

  • Heartagram, oh my god!! Alien is one of those fragrances I love on others but can’t see myself wearing cause it’s too…sexy. Does that make sense?
