*Tis the Season Tag*

Top 2 winter beauty essentials

~ Burts Bees lip balm to keep my lips soft and moisturized in the drier air

~ Bath & Body Works lotions

Top 2 winter fashion essentials

~ Tights to keep wearing skirts and dresses year round. No need to wear only pants for months upon months ;)

~ Winter white pea coat

What shoes do you tend to wear most in the winter?

~ When I lived in CT, I wore Uggs A LOT since they kept my feet warm in the bitter cold and gave me traction in icy conditions (I used to slip around a lot sometimes)

Now that I live in FL, I enjoy open toe shoes, peep toe shoes, and flip flops year round. Every once in a while it gets chilly enough to bring out some boots. Today it was in the 80's but it may drop into the 60's later this week so I can break out my cognac boots.

Favorite winter accessory

~ My sparkly heels which are perfect for the holiday season

Favorite winter nail polish

~ I love reds and sparkles this time of year. I'm currently loving Essie's Leading Lady and Beyond Cozy

Hot cocoa or apple cider?

~ I love apple cider in the fall, but hot cocoa in the winter with marshmallows!

Favorite winter candle?

~ Yankee Candle Christmas Wreath

Snowboarding or skiing?

~ Skiing.. I've tried strapping myself into a snowboard and didn't like the feeling of not being able to move my legs independently from each other :-P

Have you ever gone ice skating? Are you any good or do you fail miserably?

~ I used to ice skate a lot growing up and even had the privilege of ice skating at snow camp in Canada and at a beautiful ski resort in the Rocky Mountains. I'm ok... I'm no Michelle Kwan or anything but I can get around and do little baby spins with some wobbling of course! I have my own skates, which is a funny story since I had my own skates and they got stolen (seriously... who steals ice skates?!) So, my mom got me a new pair at Christmas a few years ago AFTER we moved to Florida. Yeah, they're going to get a lot of use down here lol.

Does it snow where you live?

~ No, thankfully. We moved to Florida to get away from the long bitter cold winters. I enjoy snow, but I hate the long winters so I like it when we are visiting up north and it snows so we can enjoy it but leave and come back to the sunshine state. I'm all snowed and iced out from growing up with it. 

Have you ever made a snowman?

~ Yes, several but they never looked as good as they do on tv (does anything? haha)

What holiday do you celebrate?

~ Christmas

Favorite Christmas/holiday song

~ Anything sung by Michael Buble (LOVE him!) and of course Mariah Carey and NSync's Christmas albums

Favorite Christmas/holiday movie

~ It's a toss up between Christmas Vacation, Elf, and The Santa Clause

What is your favorite winter treat? 

~ Red Velvet Cupcakes and Creme de Menthe cookies

If you were to ask Santa for one thing and you were guaranteed to get it, what would it be?

~ If you've been following me for a while, it's no secret how much I covet a pair of Louboutins 

Do you have anything fun planned for this winter?

~ We're starting to look at cruises since we decided to postpone our Europe trip until our 5th anniversary. 

This tag was started by LagunaBeachLove10 and MacAngel03 on YouTube. If you don't film a video, feel free to answer the questions in a written blog post, like I did.
