Today marks the first official day of Blogmas!! How exciting is that?! Who knows how well it’s going to go but I really hope you guys enjoy more regular content from me and I’m really looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
Today we’re going for something really generic, but I think these tags are always a fun way to start off the season!
Q1. What are your favourite things about winter?
A1. I absolutely love when it’s really cold outside and you can wrap up in blankets and warm clothes. I think I just love the coziness of winter!
Q2. What is your favourite winter outfit?
A2. There’s nothing better in my opinion than black boots, skirt, polo neck and thick tights with a big warm winter coat.
Q3. What is your favourite winter food?
A3. Personally I don’t really change what I eat depending on what season it is so I’m unsure how to answer this question… But to be honest, we all know the temptation to get lots of takeout food in the winter is really strong. And that temptation wins out most of the time!
Q4. What is your favourite winter drink?
A4. I definitely drink a lot more herbal tea in the winter than I do in the summer months. My absolute favourite is peppermint tea. But to be honest I’m still all about water. I drink about 3-4 litres daily no matter what season it is! Anyone have any good vegan hot chocolate recommendations?
Q5. What is your dream way to spend a winter’s day?
A5. My ideal winter’s day is most definitely getting up early and getting a great workout in early. Then, coming home and having a little bit of a GYST (get your shit together) day. Then that night, I’d ideally snuggle up under a blanket and watch movies with good comfort food. The perfect mix of productive and cosy.
Q6. How do you like to do your makeup in the winter?
A6. I like to do gold and brown smoky tones on my eyes, and always a bright red or a berry lip. There is nothing more festive than that in my opinion!
Q7. What are you hoping to get for Christmas?
A7. Booooooks! So many books! Pretty much all I really want are books and stuff to help with blogging, like a Lightroom subscription!
Q8. What are the first three things that remind you of winter?
A8. Cold crisp mornings, crackling fireplaces, and giant hoodies.
Q9. What is your favourite winter song?
A9. Personally it’s Tchaikovsky’s entire composition for the ballet ‘The Nutcracker”. It isn’t winter for me until I’ve seen the Russian ballet.
Q10. What is your favourite winter memory?
A10. Following on from the last answer, it’s going to the ballet every Christmas with my mother!
Q11. What is your favourite winter scent?
A11. Hmm this is such a tough one because I don’t really associate scents with seasons! I’m allergic to real Christmas trees so I know that’s a firm favourite for a lot of people… I’m going to go with peppermint? Peppermint is a winter scent, right?!
Q12. Finish this sentence: If I could have one wish this Christmas, it would be __________.
A12. It would honestly be the guarantee of health for my family and I. Over the last couple of years the value of health has become more and more evident to me and I don’t think you should compromise your health for anything, be that physical or mental health. I’ve had my fair share of struggles with both lately and all I want for myself and for my family is to be healthy and happy.
I’d love to know what you guys would have answered to these questions, especially your favourite winter memories are!
