The "Baby, It's Cold Outside" Tag
Hey guys! Welcome to a new'ish tag that my bestie, Marianna and I came up with- Check out her post here. We were chatting a few weeks ago about our mission to blog everyday in December, and we decided some fun tags were needed. We looked for tags from last year, but in the end decided to make two of our own. This one is focused solely on winter, and favorites that help us get through this cold, cold time (though, not so cold for me this year in LA). Later in the month you'll be seeing one that is focused on the holidays. I hope you enjoy this and feel free to use this tag! I would love to see all of your answers!
Favorite thing about winter?
If I am somewhere where it snows (which I will be for Christmas, yay!), then I love how super quiet and calm it is when there is a fresh layer of snow. Otherwise, I just love the entire time from after Thanksgiving to my birthday (end of January). It’s just such a fun time of year. I love the holidays and just the positive frame of mind that people are in during that time.
Favorite winter accessory?
Most worn sweater?
My kitteh cardigan from Target. The one in the link is purple, but mine is gray and I love it!
Must have winter lip product?
Lip balm/scrubs are even more important than normal. My lips get so chapped in the winter, so I’m usually applying Burt’s Bee’s like a fiend. Once my lips are looking decent, I can wear some bold colors. Right now I'm loving my Bite Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencil in Pomegranate. I will definitely be rocking this during the holidays. When I am feeling less bold, I've been going for Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Shiraz. Can you tell I'm a little obsessed with Bite Beauty lately?
Favorite winter nail polish?
I flip between classic red holiday shades and cool winter tones - which I actually just posted about here. I think my favorite right now is No More Film by Essie, and then for the holidays I would add my favorite blingy top coat- Essie’s On a Silver Platter.
Favorite winter candle scent?
Marshmallow Fireside from Bath and Body Works is definitely my winter favorite. It’s sweet and warm, but not too sugary. I love it.
What are your top 3 winter essentials?
A nice winter coat, a cozy scarf, and a really good hand creme
What is winter like where you live?
I live in Los Angeles right now, so winter is pretty much non-existent. The weather during this season is basically like an extended autumn.
Do you participate in any outdoor activities and which ones?
When I lived in the midwest, yes! Sledding, snowball fights, and even snowboarding were all things that we did. Now that my husband and I live in LA, not so much. But since the mountains really aren’t that far away, maybe this year we will go and get our snowboarding on.
How do you stay cozy and warm in the winter?
Warm beverages, cozy clothes, and staying inside!
That's it :) I hope you enjoyed this. I'm not going to tag anyone specific, because I just want all of you bloggers reading this to do the tag! Also, make sure you check out Marianna's tag on her Youtube channel!
