Winter Blogmas + $1000 Target Gift Card

Hi friends! Did you catch my post on Thursday about my amazing New Years Eve plans?! If not, click here to find out! With Christmas arriving before we know it, I thought it would be the perfect time to team up with some other blogger babes and share our favorite winter/holiday related questions, aka Winter Blogmas, & right in time for Christmas.. we are having a $1000 Target Gift Card giveaway! This is not a drill people! All directions on how to enter is at the bottom of the post!

ONE: What is your favorite holiday tradition?

My favorite holiday tradition, besides decorating the house, would be baking cookies with my mom, sister, and grandma. Each year we pick a day and just go at it! This will be the first Christmas and baking day in our new home, so it is going to be extra special. Normally, each of us comes with a couple of recipes, and most of the time, they turn out. However, someone always has at least one flop! lol 🙂

My favorite winter lippies are actually my favorite all year long! For colour, I love the lip kits by Kylie Cosmetics. For therapy, my favorite is Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment and Fresh Sugar Lip Caramel Hydrating Balm!

THREE: What is your favorite winter scent? (candles, perfumes, etc.)

I do not switch scents for each season {but now I am thinking I might do that!}! However, my new favorite scent is Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue for fancy occasions!

FOUR: What is your go to winter fashion trend?

My go to winter fashion trend is definitely blanket scarves! This is my favorite winter trend because it allows you to stay fashionable, while more importantly, staying warm! We have gotten pretty lucky so far with our weather, however it can get really chilly! Throwing on a blanket scarf over your winter coat, gives you an extra layer but also allows you to express your fashionista side, even when it is 10 degrees out! Find my how to wear a blanket scarf, here!

FIVE: What is your all time favorite Holiday movie?

I have to say Christmas Vacation because my family and I can quote the entire movie. But I also like all of The Santa Clause movies 1, 2, and 3 with Tim Allen! They are always playing on FreeForm this time of year!

SIX: What is your all time favorite holiday tune?

Oh, this one is so hard to pick! Right when December hits, Christmas music is all I listen too! Michael Buble, Pentatonix, Elvis, and all of the old time songs would probably be my favorite!

SEVEN: Do you prefer travel or stay home for the holidays?

All of my moms side of the family is local, but my dads side is all over the east coast. Therefore, I grew up traveling during the holidays. I do enjoy traveling and seeing family, however there is nothing like waking up on Christmas morning in your own home.

EIGHT: What is your favorite winter skin care must have?

Moisturizer! I find more dry skin spots during the winter {obviously!} and I get rid of them by using the Dermadoctor products!

NINE:What is your favorite winter hair care product?

My favorite winter hair care product is Monat. I recently just started using these products, and they are game changers! Read about my journey with Monat here!

TEN: What is your favorite winter activity?

Ice Skating! We are a big hockey family and going skating is always my favorite. This year Omaha opened up TWO different outdoor rinks! We are so excited to go try them out!

ELEVEN: What is your favorite must have beauty product?

I am a mascara girl! I received the Marc Jacobs Volume Mascara as a sample, and I am now hooked. You can find it here, and trust me, it gives you LOTS of volume. So perfect for all of the holiday parties!

TWELVE:Do you love or hate snow?

LOVE! I am missing the snow so much right now. I am just hoping that Mother Nature is holding off until Christmas to gift us with snow. A white Christmas is the BEST Christmas!

THIRTEEN: What is one item on your wish list this year?

Delsey Luggage! {hint hint Jackson!} Find my gift guides here! {guys, jet-setter, & stocking stuffers!}

FOURTEEN: What is your favorite holiday treat?

My favorite holiday treat would be peanut butter cookies with Hersey kisses on top! Those always seem to disappear first! 😉

FIFTEEN: Do you finish your holiday shopping before December or are you a last minute shopper?

I start my Christmas shopping in July! Yes, I know I am crazy. This year I was a little behind, but hit it hard in October/November to finish off my list!

    Nicole, what a great post! Ice skating is the absolute best! I can’t believe you start shopping in July! That’s funny. If I bought presents in July, I would totally stash them away and forget their location before Christmas! I would have to just buy more! LOL This was such a fun post!
