Christmas Is Coming || The Winterlicious Tag

My Dad took this photo last week of the view from our dining room. Apparently it snowed a lot which isn't unusual where I'm from. I hope it snows again once I'm home! 

I was tagged by the lovely Melissa of Melissa Knows Best to do this tag, and since I am a huge lover of the holiday season, of course I had to participate! 

1. Favorite Winter Nail Polish
Recently I have been wearing these two colors together, and I think they add a little bit of Christmas cheer to my outfits! The red one is N.Y.C. Nail Glossies in the color 227, and the other one is Sally Hansen's Golden-I.

2. Favorite Winter Lip Product
Lately I have really gotten into darker lipsticks, and I absolutely love the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains. I only have one color so far (Crush), but I am dying to get more. I also really like this Rimmel lipstick it's in the shade 01. I'm still not quite sure if it's the right red for me since I've only really worn it once, but the formula is really nice. 

3. Most Worn Winter Clothing Piece
I got this jacket a couple of Christmases ago, and still receive loads of compliments on it. I wear it all the time, and it is still going strong. It's warm, but also really comfortable, and it has a great hood. The only thing wrong with it is that I accidentally let chocolate melt in one of the pockets, and still haven't been able to completely get it out. What a waste of perfectly good chocolate ;P I know this photo is pretty awkward, but it was the best I could do at the moment. 

4. Most Worn Winter Accessory
This would definitely have to be my slippers. I got these at Target last winter, and have never regretted it. They are so fuzzy and warm. My feet tend to get really, really cold, but these keep them nice and toasty warm. They're perfect for lounging around the house, and I never want to take them off when I have to put real shoes on. I'm always so tempted to just wear them outside! 

5. Favorite Winter Scent/Candle
I don't have any particular favorite winter scent or candle, but during the autumn and wintertime I like anything that smells like Christmas, except things that smell pine-y. I really like apple cinnamon scents.

6. Favorite Winter Beverage
I am a huge lover of hot chocolate. I wouldn't really consider this to be a winter beverage for me since I drink it all year round. Yes, even in the summer. I recently tried the peppermint hot chocolate from Starbucks for the first time, and wowza was it good! During the Christmas season I like to put a candy cane in my hot chocolate to make it pepperminty. 

7. All Time Favorite Christmas/Holiday Movie
I had such a hard time choosing just one, but if there was one I could watch anytime, it would have to be Borrowed Hearts. I talk more about this in this post. 

8. Favorite Christmas/Holiday Song
Ugh this was even more difficult to choose than the movies, because anyone who knows me would be able to tell you that during the Christmas season I never stop singing Christmas tunes. Some of my friends are even convinced that I know the words to every Christmas song even though I highly doubt that. I have an entire post dedicated to my favorite Christmas songs that you can have a little looksie here if you missed it. If I absolutely had to choose just two, I would probably have to go with Do They Know It's Christmas by Band Aid, and any version of Christmas (Baby Please Come Home). I could listen to these two songs any day, sny time, ans still love them just as much. 

9. Favorite Holiday Food/Treat
Christmastime is definitely the season for eating, and if there's one thing the people in my family know how to do it's cooking. I eat so much good food during the holidays I should probably be banned from the food table. However, there is one thing during the holidays that everyone dies for. It's my Grandma's chex mix. She makes a tub of it for every family on my Dad's side (which is a lot of people), and people seriously fight over it. Not even kidding. Sadly, I don't have a picture of it, but I'm sure you can imagine what it looks like. 

10. Favorite Christmas Decoration This Year
This was a toughie to decide, and I'm still not 100% satisfied with my answer since I love all of our Christmas decorations. I chose this ornament because I love Bubmle the abominable snowman from the Rudolph movie. I have several Bumble decorations, and there are many ornaments that I really like, but I had to choose this one.

11. What's At The Top Of Your Christmas List?
First of all, I'm just really excited to be home for Christmas, and have all of my family with me. It sounds really cliche when I say that, but it really wouldn't be Christmas without them. If I had to choose a material item that I really want I would have to choose the Coach summertime eau de toilet. I know it was limited edition, but it is still available at certain places online. I wrote a post about this particular scent what seems like absolute ages ago, and said I would just have to forget about it because I didn't need it, but I haven't had any luck with that so far.

12. Plans For the Holidays This Year
Every year I pretty much do the same thing for Christmas. It involves a lot of family (both my parents have 11 brothers and sisters each, so you can imagine how big my family is), food, and laughter. Some of the best things in my opinion. There are certain traditions we have like baking Christmas cookies, watching certain Christmas films, and exchanging gifts, but I think I may write a more in depth post on what I do for Christmas Eve and Christmas day later.

I'm not going to tag anyone in particular. If you want to do this tag, by all means do it! 

Keep Smiling,



I'm jealous of your Christmas. It sounds like you'll have a lovely time :) I have 3 sisters, and we go to my nannys house but you have loads involved! I love hot chocolate all year around too. You need to try the hazelnut hot chocolate from Starbucks! with cinnamon :) It's delicious!x


Oooo that sounds divine! I'll definitely have to try it :)


Very cute post; I've been seeing this tag all over YouTube but I think I prefer it in blog form now that I've seen it here :)



Oh thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it :D
