Winter is officially here! We’ve had snow already in Sweden, but now it has melted away (at least where I live). I like snow so that’s kind of a bummer! Hopefully it will snow again soon :) Anyway, I decided to do this fun winter tag that has circulated on the Internet.
- Top 2 Winter Beauty Essentials
I would say a good lip balm, of any kind really, just because my lips get dry during winter. I love Carmex, Burt’s Bees, and EOS. My second beauty essential is a good face moisturizer preferably with a brightening effect for the obvious reason of the dull skin you get this season.
- Top 2 Winter Fashion Essentials
This one’s easy – a nice, warm, coat and classic black gloves. My favorite coat this season is a beige one from Zara which I’ve fell in love with. It goes well with any outfit and adds a real stylish effect to them. My favorite gloves this season is a pair from Gina Tricot. The bottom side is in real leather while the top side is in faux-suede. The inside is lined in the softest fabric.
- What shoes do you tend to wear the most in the winter?
Mostly Chelsea boots just because I feel like they never go out of style. My favorite boots at the moment are from Vagabond. I like over-the-knee boots as well, and my favs are from Miss Selfridge. They’re black in faux-suede with the most flattering block heels.
- Favorite Winter Accessory
I’ve already mentioned the gloves, but other than that, a warm scarf is a must for me.
- Favorite Winter Nail Polish
As for now, I’m into Essie nail polishes., especially “A-list,” which is a red color I fancy during winter. But you can also never go wrong with a black color, preferably Essie’s ”Licorice” polish.
- Hot Cocoa or Apple Cider?
I like both. It depends on my mood which one I prefer. Sometimes I think that hot cocoa is too sweet, and sometimes it’s just right.
I don’t have a favorite. However, I like different ”winter scents.” For me those are: vanilla, apple, and cinnamon.
I have never tried either. Or I have tried cross country skiing. Once. It wasn’t really my thing since I got stuck in a hill. I was 7 years old.
- Have you ever gone Ice Skating? Are you any good or do you FAIL miserably?
Ice Skating I have done. I’m actually pretty good for a beginner. The only thing I haven’t mastered in ice skating is how to skate backwards…
- Does it snow where you live?
I live in Sweden, so yes, it does snow here.
- Have you ever made a snowman?
Absolutely! But it’s been a while since.
- What holiday do you celebrate?
I celebrate New Year’s Eve (and all the Holiday Sales :p).
- Favorite Christmas/Holiday song?
I don’t really have a favorite. But when I was younger I loved Mariah’s ”All I Want For Christmas.”
- Favorite Christmas/Holiday movie?
It’s not really a Holiday movie I guess, but for me it’s all the Harry Potter movies. I watch them every Christmas-break (and I even include a few of them in my teaching).
- What is your favorite winter treat? (candy cane, gingerbread, etc…)
Anything chocolate-y is yum.
- If you were to ask Santa for one thing and you were guaranteed to get it, what would it be? (even if you don’t celebrate Christmas)
I would ask for acceptance among people. That we accept one another just the way we are, religiously, spiritually, personally… I think that if we did that we would be happier and live more peacefully. There’s too much hate out there from people ”who ought to know”, when in fact the hate are opinions based on ignorance and stupidity uttered from people who don’t know.
- Do you have anything fun planned for this winter?
Well, December 7th we’re going on our honeymoon to Dubai so that’s pretty exciting! Other than that I will try to bake as much as I can, spend time with friends and family, relaxing with good movies and TV-shows, and of course, do some Boxing Day shopping!
That’s all from me! I hope you liked this tag! Tomorrow is Friday and I can’t be more excited – just for the sake that it’s the start of the weekend. ❤︎
