Winterlicious Tag

It has been an absolute age but I thought it would be fun to do this festive tag which has been going around.

1. Favourite Winter Nail Varnish?

Nail Varnish is my thing and I love changing up the colours over Christmas. Normally I go for something red or dark but recently I've been loving GLITTER. Although it is an absolute pain to remove. Below is my current nail combination - Essie Power Clutch with Rimmel Precious Stones on the ring finger.

2. Favourite Winter Lip Product?

I love a dark red lip during winter and my current favourite is Rimmel Kate Moss 01 as it has great staying power. Another favourite is the Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie which is such a lovely deep pink, perfect for this time of the year. 

3. Favourite Winter Scent/Candle?

Cinnamon is one of my most hated foods. I cannot stand it. But when a candle scent it is a totally different story. Nothing smells more Christmassy and my personal favourite is Yankee Cinnamon stick.

4. Favourite Winter Beverage?

I'm an absolute sucker for anything with mint so my perfect drink is either a Peppermint Hot Chocolate or a Peppermint Mocha.

5. All Time Favourite Holiday Movie?

Surprisingly not Home Alone.
I love The Holiday, Love Actually and A Nightmare Before Christmas. Also a huge fan of The Snowman if that counts...

6. Favourite Christmas Song?

Merry Christmas Everyone - Shakin' Stevens

Also ANY Cliff Richard!

7. Favourite Holiday Food/Treat?

Too much to choose from!! Probably a Yule Log - Mary Berry does a great recipe!

8. Favourite Christmas Decoration?

I love robins on the tree. This is my personal favourite from my tree at home!

9. What is top of your Christmas List?

A new watch, hopefully!

10. What are your plans for the Holidays this year?

Back to my parent's house in the country, it is nice to get out of London sometimes. I have a ton of work to do but hopefully I can relax at some point with the fam and the dog! Maybe it will snow?!

11. Most worn winter accessory?

Tartan scarves!

Merry Christmas!

I realise that I've been a bit AWOL over recent months so I thought I would give a little update on what's been happening. I'm now back at my parent's house and it seems life has been none stop with working evening shifts Monday to Friday and then jam packed weekends. I haven't stopped. I've been backwards and forwards to London aswell and that is only set to continue into August as I volunteer at the London Olympics, which by the way I'm so excited for. If posts are few and far between then that is the reason why.

Last weekend I met my London housemates, Nadine and Mary, in Windsor and we spent a (dry) Saturday in this beautiful, quaint town. I go to Windsor quite often but I never get sick of it and on this particular trip I visited the Boots for the first time. If you are ever in Windsor please do visit it - definitely one of the best I've been too and I managed to pick up one of the new Revlon Kissable Stain balms which I'll be reviewing soon. We also crossed the bridge into Eton for a lovely curry to celebrate my degree results which was lovely. 

Hope you are all well and haven't been too down about the lack of sunshine.
