The Winter Tag


Thanks to Brenda BusyBee's Blog for giving me the idea to do this awesome Tag. You can check out her one right here;

1) What's your favourite seasonal drink from either Starbucks/Costa or your cafe of choice?

See I am a sucker for a basic cuppa; a nice, homemade golden yet milky tea (preferrably Twinings Everyday Tea Bags) in a big Disney mug with 1 & 1/2 sugars. I am yet to find a cafe alternative that can better how I make my perfect cup of tea.

2) What accessories do you opt for? Scarf/boots/gloves?

I am partial to a Scarf but right now I am loving my ASOS Blanket Scarf which is still available to buy for £18.00.
I always opt for fingerless gloves so I have my fingers free for blogging on the go! My current pair are long so they warm your wrists too :)
Winter makes for warm & cosy feet too, so thick fluffy socks teamed with my Gumtree boots from +Simply Be which are very similar to UGGs but at a fraction of the cost.  I have extremely thick calves so finding boots that fit is always a mean feat, but I love these boots.

3) What's your favourite tunes for this time of year?

Winter makes for chill out music in my household, probably because I am always longing to be on a beach somewhere.  Chill out music takes me to my happy place; on a lounger, basking in the summer sun with the sound of waves crashing at my feet...bliss! Try this song on for size and tell me it doesn't make you feel warm inside...
In the lead up to Christmas I will always add a few Carols & Christmas songs into the mix just to get me in the festive mood.

4) What scent or perfume do you find yourself favouring this time of year?

Perfume has gotta be Paco Rabanne's Black XS.  It has a hint of patchouli & black vanilla in it giving it a warm sensual smell.

5) What candle's will you be burning this season?

I have two candle's on rotation in my house; Vanilla or Lemongrass; both scents are invigorating and bring back fond memories :)

6) What is it you love most about winter?

Cosy nights on the sofa with a duvet, any excuse to layer up clothing with fluffy jumpers or comfy PJ's, Snow (when & if it happens) the excitement of Christmas & the changing of the seasons from winter to spring!

7) Your favourite make-up look for Winter?

My signature look of a smoky eye teamed with a berry lip or nude.

8) What are you most looking forward to this winter?

Cracking out my new boots from Simply Be, wearing my new fluffy Penguin Jumper (A Christmas gift from My Mama), spending time with my loved ones & friends over the festive period and eating lots of naughty things like my weight in Christmas chocolates and more roast dinners than you can shake a stick at!

I tag +Leah XL Channel , +Color U Bold & +Cody Wren to do this tag and anyone else who would like to join in, feel free - tweet me your links so I can read up too :)

Merry Christmas xx
