Winter TAG! Blogmas 2017


Hello! I hope December is treating you well so far.

For today’s Blogmas post I have decided to try a TAG. I’ve never done this before and quite frankly, it reminds me of the questionnaires you used to answer and send out to nobody on Myspace back in the good old days. (Showing my age, me-thinks!)

This was found Via Rebecca Eden Whiteley’s blog/twitter

❄ Top 2 Winter Beauty Essentials
I wear glitter eyeliner every-damn-day in December. This year I’m loving H+M’s selection as they also double up as mascaras! And also, lip balm. All the lip balm.

❄ Top 2 Winter Fashion Essentials
Oversized everything. Jumpers and hoodies especially. I would wear a hoodie that could drown me if it were possible!

❄ What shoes do you tend to wear the most in the winter?
Boots! always boots. I like a wedge heel as it makes my existing tallness even more imposing! And I need all the added self-confidence I can get.

❄ Favorite Winter Accessory
A good bobble hat. This year I love my gold/yellow chenille bobble hat from Sainsburys Tu. (nothing but luxury brands for me!)

❄ Hot Cocoa or Apple Cider?
Love a hot chocolate. but I’m afraid it has to be an expensive coffeehouse one. They just taste so good and I’ve yet to taste an at-home one that matches up!

❄ Favorite Winter Candle?
Woodwick golden spun sugar. But I haven’t found any on sale at all yet 🙁

❄ Does it snow where you live?
Yes, there was a quick flurry a couple of days ago actually. we all huddled around our one office window like excited schoolchildren!

❄ Favorite Christmas/Holiday song?
There are so many to choose from. I love Mariah’s Last Christmas. But you could basically put ‘NOW that’s what I call Christmas Classics’ on and I’d be happy all day. (Well… until Bandaid20 starts. soz)

❄ Favorite Christmas/Holiday movie?
Got to be predictable and say Elf. I just love Will Ferrel so much anyway. Shout out to Gremlins and The Nightmare before Christmas too.

❄ What is your favorite winter treat? (candy cane, gingerbread, etc…)
Anything with Marzipan flavour. It’s just so festive and delicious. So I’m a sucker for a traditional Christmas cake with thick royal icing; or Stollen of course.

❄ 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 think it would have to be a Puppy or Kitten. YES, I KNOW THESE SHOULDN’T BE GIFTED! But this is make-believe.

We have been looking into getting a fluffy friend for a good few years now but can never seem to psyche ourselves up enough to go through with actually getting one. And as we’re talking fairytale gifts, this little furry critter would also come with the gift of more hours in the day to spend with it and reduced hours at work for more pay. Thanks.

❄ Do you have anything fun planned for this winter
Spending valuable time with the boyf and family are my number one priority this year. It’s looking likely that this could be the last Christmas we will spend with the full grandparent contingent (hopefully not, but I’m being realistic based on the last couple of months) so I just want to see everyone as much as possible and really cherish the time we have together. (Note to any younger readers: Go see your family. Trust me… make the most of this time now!)

I find these quite self-indulgent at the best of times (she judgingly says while writing on her own personal blog!) so if you read through this, I commend you!

Why not answer this for yourself and continue the TAG! (I think I am supposed to tag someone… but I am Interweb-friendless)

Thank you so much for reading,

Love, Beccy May
