Ah! I have been tagged by the beautiful Jasmine over at Color U Bold.
Jasmine tagged me on twitter (@Color_U_Bold) and I couldn’t open the link on my computer so I checked out her blog. Found it. haha.
I guess it’s time to share a few things about myself in this tag (as if I don’t spill my guts out enough as it is!).
1. What’s your favourite seasonal drink from either Starbucks/Costa or your cafe of choice?
I’m with Jasmine on this one. I don’t know what Costa is. BUT I DO know what Starbucks is! The hubs and I go there at least once a week. It’s probably horrible for us and our budgets…but I am over it. Ha! Anyway, for a seasonal drink…I remember when the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate first came out and THAT was the holiday drink. I would get that all the time…and still do. Substitute the regular milk for the soy and I am good to go! Plus, if you’re trying not to have too much caffeine while you’re pregnant, this is a good option. As for the holiday drinks that were feature for this year…I was a fan of the Caramel Brulee Latte. I tried the Chestnut Prailene Latte and I wasn’t really a fan. Maybe it’s the caramel. haha. Either way, it’s a coffee drink with loads of sugar. There’s no way it’s bad for you! ;P
2. What accessories do you opt for? Scarf/boots/gloves?
Well, seeing as I am in the Central (middle-of-freaking-nowhere-land) California, it’s not like it is back home. Where is home? Wisconsin. It gets COLD there! I am NOT a fan of the cold. Don’t get me wrong, it gets cold here too but nothing like a frozen tundra. Here…it’s been about the simple decorative scarves, jeans, a pair of Toms, and a cute top most likley paired with a cardigan. And if I get too cold, my North Face will go on top. Nothing special. But when I am HOME? I am ALWAYS in a pair of skinny jeans or leggings and boots. Boots, boots, boots. I love them. 🙂 And I am ALWAYS wearing some sort of scarf and MITTENS. I love mittens. I once had a pair of mittens my friend made me in high school and they were green…with buttons for eyes and a tongue was sewn where the thumb was. Cute little frogs. Haha. I really don’t like winter besides the LOOK of snow. I am more of a Fall/Autumn kind of gal. But the holiday season is something I do enjoy. Maybe in the next few years, I could go home to enjoy it again…and remember why I stopped going home for Christmas!
3. What are your favorite tunes for this time of year?
Honestly? It drives me almost insane that people go from Halloween straight into Christmas mode. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Why? I have no idea. Probably has something to do with family getting together and THANKING people and the Lord for the good things in life. Even kids know that. Around Christmas, a lot of people forget the true meaning. Again, it’s all about family and togetherness. Not about the presents and being selfish. Anyway…I am on a tangent again. But with that being said….I try not to listen to any Christmas music until the week of. If I can help it, of course. Then it’s all about the classic Christmas Carols. Anything I can sing is a plus as well.
4. What scent or perfume do you find yourself favoring this time of year?
Honestly? I don’t have a specific scent that I wear for certain times of the year. I just wear what I like. And currently, my collection is very low. I’ve got 3 Victoria’s Secret scents: Night, Bombshell, and Tease. I like all 3 so I change them out whenever necessary.
5. What candles will you be burning this season?
Well, we don’t burn all too many candles in our home but I wanted to buy the huge candle at Bath and Body Works earlier in the fall. The scent was Pumpkin Pecan Waffles. To die for. I have a bunch of soap in that scent. lol. Nothing really for Christmas. We have a wax warmer in the bedroom that we turn on at night and right now it’s got some Glade Christmas cookie smells. I love that!! Does that count?
6. What is it you most love about Winter?
I don’t love Winter. lol. As previously stated, I love Fall. But I guess since we are talking about Winter…if I am going to be COLD then there better be some freaking snow. You get cold but no snow here in California. So, I would rather be kickin’ it in my house and look out to see snow falling. Then again, I don’t like shoveling it, driving in it, or dealing with all the other crap. Snow is fun for sledding, snowmen, snow angels, and snowball fights. And it’s pretty to look at. Other than that, I am good without it.
7. What is your favorite makeup look for the winter?
My basic beauty routine really never changes. I mean, I have a lot of makeup and I enjoy wearing it and experimenting with it. The only thing that really changes is that I wear more lipstick. I have been experimenting wiht lipsticks lately. Trying to venture away from just the normal pinky kind. And during the winter I wear Viva Glam I by MAC. It’s my favorite red. The only red I have EVER found that looks…RED on me. I talk about this color a lot. It’s pretty much my go-to. But I have also been looking at deeper and darker colors as well. But mainly…reds. Reds are my favorite. Also, you can usually get away with a little more eye makeup if you deem it necessary. 🙂
8. What are you most looking forward to this Winter?
I don’t really have much to look forward to…my son will be born near the END of Winter so I guess that would be what I look forward to the most!!! I can’t wait to meet my little guy.
Well, I guess that’s all the questions for this tag!! I hope you enjoyed yourselves! This definitely helped me get over my slump of NOT posting lately. I don’t think I have posted anything in over a week. YIKES! I have written A LOT lately. But I haven’t found the time to get some photos taken. No worries, I’ll get on there soon! I need to keep ya’ll interested!! 🙂
Don’t forget to pop on over to Jasmine’s blog and have a look. She’s got some great stuff. Especially if you’re interested in makeup…like many of us ladies are!
Stay tuned for new posts from me! And a guest post from a new friend of mine! 🙂
