Hello beauties!! This time I've decided to participate in a fun Winter Tag started by the beautiful Ell! It consists of 15 winter/holiday related questions! Check them out and let me know what you think.
If you’ve been tagged, it’s time for you to answer them too! Once you answer all 15 questions, tag at least 5 other blogger friends to complete it next! Oh and don't forget to tag the person who tagged you, so they can read your answers as well.
Hope you guys are having a lovely holiday season no matter where you are!
- What is your favorite holiday tradition?
I just love spending time with my family and some of my most cherished memories are those when my grandmas were still alive because ALL the family will gather together (yep, including all fourteen uncles, aunts and all of my cousins).
- What is your favorite go to winter lippies?
This Aquaphor lip balm is a must for my chapped lips and of course make sure I drink enough water because we all know how hard it can be to keep ourselves well hydrated during winter. Another amazing product I recently discover is this Lip Sleeping Mask, which helps soothe and moisturize my lips overnight. In terms of lipsticks, I love trying some bolder colors during this season and not my usual light pink. This X has been one of my favorites.
- What is your favorite winter scent (perfume, candles, etc)?
I love anything apple-cinnamon during fall and winter, it just makes everything feel more cozy. This and this are some of my favorite candles and I usually get a couple of them early October.
- What is your go to winter fashion trend?
I'm definitely not a fan of cold weather but I do love Fall-Winter fashion. There's something about layering and coats that makes everything look so put together. Also, blanket scarves and chenille sweaters that are so soft and cozy are definitely in my faves list.
- What is your all time favorite holiday movie?
Home Alone 2 of course! I just have to watch it every.single.Christmas.
- What is your all time favorite holiday tune?
Holiday songs just make me happy. Like I can be all down and suddenly listen to Jingle Bell Rock or Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree and the next minute be all cheery and upbeat 😂
- Do you prefer to travel or stay home for the holidays?
I've always prefered to stay home with my family for Christmas and then travel for New Year's. However, I've been living away from my family since I was fifteen so that means traveling for the holidays as well I guess.
- What is your favorite winter skin care must have?
I have sensitive skin and of course it gets really dry during the cold months of the year so these La Roche-Posay lotion and balm are true lifesavers 🙌🏻
- What is your favorite winter hair care product?
Winter is the perfect season for me to use hair masks, I can actually leave them on for a long time without getting too impatient haha I always stock up on this one with Abyssinia Oil and this one with Argan Oil. They are both deeply nourishing and help restore my damaged hair from all the hot tools that I use throughout the year.
- What is your favorite winter activity?
My favorite winter activity (other than snuggling up with my pups) is seeing all the beautiful Christmas decorations around the city. My favorite ones have been those in New York City and at Disneyland Paris. So magical! 🎄
- What is your favorite must have winter beauty product?
I've just got this Too Faced Chocolate Gold palette and I'm in love with all those mattes and metallic shades. When I first saw it online I thought it was too much for me but then I swatched it in store and fell in love.
- Do you love or hate snow?
Love it as long as it's all cute and fluffy, not when it starts to melt down and roads are a mess haha. ☃️
- What is one item on your wishlist this year?
Oh man, I have so many things on my wishlist 🙈 but my top one is definitely a full-frame camera, specifically a Canon 5D Mark IV and a couple of nice lenses wouldn't hurt of course haha. Fashionwise, I'm obsessed with Gucci's Marmont Collection and I would love to add another one to my purse family 😍
- What is your favorite holiday treat?
I love all the traditional Mexican dishes from this season, seriously you gotta try them. Gimme all the Chocolate Abuelita (Hot Cocoa), Conchas (traditional Mexican sweet bread) and Ponche (or Mexican Christmas Punch if you'd like).
- Do you finish your holiday shopping before December or are you a last minute shopper?
With so many deals starting even before Black Friday, I'm always a last minute shopper #ooops plus, I'm all about finding the perfect gift for everyone on my list. I don't have anything against giving gift cards but I prefer more thoughtful gifts 💕
