Warm Me Up For Winter Tag

December 2014

I saw this tag on Benita’s Blog, Benita’s Beauty Bits and Bobs. I’m so happy Benita is blogging again, I missed her when she wasn’t. You guys should go and check her out. Anyway, this tag looked like so much fun I simply had to have a go at answering the questions myself.

1. What’s your favourite hot chocolate?

This is a hard question! I love hot chocolate during the winter months and I love trying different flavours of hot chocolate. I don’t think I can choose!

Tag – Winter Beauty Tag – November 2014

Winter Beauty Tag

November 2014

So I saw this on the lovely Katie’s Blog at Plus+ Beauty and thought it looked like loads of fun. If you haven’t seen Katie’s blog then you really need to go and check it out, it’s awesome!

1. What’s your go-to moisturiser this winter?

I don’t really have anything in particular. I’m currently loving the Body Shop Body Butters. I’m using the Passion Fruit one at the moment.

Nail Varnish Picks – Winter 2014

Nail Varnish Picks

Winter 2014

The weather and the season really can influence which nail varnishes I grab for when I’m painting my nails, often times without me even realising it. So I thought I’d share some of my favourite nail varnishes for the winter months. When the weather does turn cold, I find myself reaching for lighter cool toned colours, many of which remind me of frost. As much as I do find myself influenced by the season when choosing my nail varnish, you can of course wear whatever colour you want when you want to. But these are some of my favourite nail varnishes for winter.

First up is Barry M’s Lady, which is a white and silver textured nail varnish. I always wear this with topcoat as I don’t like the textured finish, but this one really does remind me of frost and ice. You can read my review of this nail varnish by clicking here. And in the photo it is shown with topcoat.

Winter Day At The Shopping Mall

I really like doing Outfit of the Day posts, even though my knowledge of fashion is minimal. So I thought I’d share with you what I wore when I went on a shopping trip to the Metrocentre (a really large shopping mall in the north east of England) with my mum and sister the other day.

Tag – The Winter Tag – December 2013

The Winter Tag

December 2013

Okay, so once again I’ve pinched this from the love jacquelyng56’s blog. If you haven’t already checked her blog out then you really need to as she is amazing! These questions were really fun, but some of them were also really hard! I’ve seen a couple of different people do this Tag on their blogs recently, but if you haven’t and you do do it then let me know as I would love it read it!

What are your favourite things about Winter?

I don’t really know to be honest. I love cold, clear, crisp days when hopefully all the rain from autumn is over. Days when the sky is bright blue but there’s also a chill in the air and it just feels really fresh. Winter is also the time of year when I get to see family members who it is otherwise difficult to see and that’s probably my favourite thing.

Tag – Wintery Wednesday Tag – December 2013

Wintery Wednesday Tag

December 2013

So I originally saw this Tag on jacquelyng56’s blog and thought that it looked really fun and that I’d give it a go. Some of these questions were really difficult to answer though. I’m pretty indifferent to winter as a season if I’m perfectly honest, it’s definitely not my favourite but I don’t absolutely hate it either.

1. What’s your favourite holiday movie?

Okay, so this one’s easy. It has to be The Snowman. This is required Christmas Eve viewing for me. It’s so simple, and so bittersweet, but so well done and I’ve always loved it. I also watched the Snowman and the Snowdog last year and while it was nowhere near as good as The Snowman it was still quite good.

Nail Art – Snowy Winter Town

Nail Art

Snowy Winter Town

I wore this design at the beginning of December. It seemed like ages since I had done any nail art and Christmas should have provided plenty of opportunities to rectify that fact. However, it is now January, and I’m only just getting around to posting this. Family drama and being ill meant that I didn’t get to do any other nail art last month. Even when I wore this design I didn’t feel very Christmassy, and although this is inspired by the wintery town scenes you get on Christmas cards I’m tending to think of this as more winter nail art rather than Christmas nail art.
