Countdown To Christmas: Winterlicious TAG!

Hello everyone!  I hope you’re having a great day!  Today I’m coming to you with a really exciting mini-series….a Christmas mini series!  If you can’t tell by the title, I am doing a mini series called “Countdown To Christmas”!  It is not going to be every single one of my posts for the next while, but the majority of them!  This is where I am going to post every single Christmas-related post for 2012.    Today I am going to be doing the winterlicious tag, and if you’d like to do this, I’d love to see your answers in a comment!

27 Days, 5 Hours, 20 Minutes until Christmas

 

 

1) Favorite Winter Nail Polish?   I have four!  Haha, I am planning on doing a whole winter nail polish favourites post, so I am just going to share one!  It is Essie’s Forever Yummy.  A perfect holiday/fall red!  
2) Favorite Winter lip product?  My favourite winter lip product is Revlon’s lip butter in Red Velvet.  I’m kind of in a red faze right now (I’m not sure if it’s Taylor Swift doing this to me or what…) but I love this colour!  I’ve been wearing it with a bit of mascara and it is so nice in the mornings!  I seriously save so much time because I am wearing such a bright colour.  I feel like this colour isn’t so dramatic, because it really mixes with my natural lip colour and makes it look very natural, and almost like a stain.  I think I might pick up a true, bright, T. Swift red for the holidays though, this one is nice, but I’d like to have two types of red!
3) Most worn Winter clothing piece?  Big, cozy knit sweaters!  I have been loving scarves so much lately, so I just like plain, big sweaters that keep me warm so that I can put a scarf over them.  My school hasn’t turned on the heat yet (as far as I know!) and I have only been able to wear a few things in my wardrobe because it is too cold to not wear a thick sweater!
4) Most worn Winter accessory?  SCARVES!  Haha, if you haven’t noticed, I love them!  I also really love the Peter Pan collar that I made!  You can see it here!
5) Favorite winter scent/candle?  Well, I’ve told you before that I really can’t wear scents, and I don’t really fancy candles, BUT, I do actually have a scent from B&BW that I love!  It’s from their holiday collection, and it’s called Twisted Peppermint.  My two favourite scents are peppermint, and cinnamon, so this is perfect!  I still can’t wear it everyday because of my sinus, but I still like it!
6) Favorite Winter beverage?  Hot chocolate!  It’s too bad though, because almost every time I drink it, it gives me a headache!  Haha, I really don’t know why…is it the heat from it!?  I like it the most with a bit of cinnamon in it!  I am going to get candy canes the next time we go grocery shopping because I want to see how they are crushed up in it!
7) All time favorite Christmas/Holiday movie?  Any of them!  But the ones that stick out the most are Fred Claus, and all three Santa Clauses.
8) Favorite Christmas/Holiday song?  I really like just the classic ones, but I love All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey!…oh and my all time favourite is probably Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.
9) Favorite Holiday food/treat?   Anything chocolate….as always.  I like the peppermint bark that I made last year!  I’ve made it three times in total, and actually did a post on it last year..haha!  It is a pretty bad post…maybe I’ll remake it this year…!  I actually have a batch of it going right now!  It tastes JUST like Aero Chocolate Peppermint chocolate bars!  Here’s the link to the OLD post.
10) What is your favorite Christmas Decoration this year?  I will show you guys all of the decor in my house as Christmas gets closer…so you’ll see it then!  But I really love this little section downstairs, and my little tree in my room!
11) What’s at the top of your Christmas list?  Well, unfortunately, I know what I’m getting…but I’ll do a whole post on that too!  Coming soon….
12) What are your plans for the holidays this year?  We are going to my Aunt’s!  There’s going to be about ten of us, and we just go in the afternoon on Christmas day.  It’ll be just the three of us for Christmas eve, and then Christmas morning we get to open all of the presents under the tree, and then we go to my Aunt’s and I get to open up even more presents!  Haha.

Thanks for reading!  If you have anything at all you’d like to ask me/say to me, leave it in a comment below!

November Q&A (2012)

Hey guys!  So I have some Q&A time!   I’ve also got a whole bunch of holiday tags coming up soon, so be on the look out for those as Christmas approaches!  Leave your Q&A in a comment!

 

1. What is the saddest movie you’ve ever seen?  Uhm, well there’s a few…but I’d have to say Ted, Raise Your Voice and Narnia are the three that pop into my mind.  I watched Ted about a week ago and I thought it was going to be hilarious.  Well let me tell you, it was a lot more sad than funny!  I was BAWLING!  I saw Raise Your Voice when it first came out in theatres when I was a huge Hilary Duff fan, and the beginning of that one was pretty sad too.  And I am the only one who thinks that Narnia is like heart-wrenching!?  Maybe it’s just because I don’t watch action movies like Narnia, but oh my gosh I seriously can’t get through watching it without having to stop!  Every second of it is so depressing!

2. What’s your ringtone on your phone?  Drops of Jupiter by Train

3.  Last furry thing you’ve touched?  I have a really fuzzy blanket I’m laying on!

4. What is your desktop picture? I just made a “be the brightest of the bunch” on my Pages and screenshotted it on!

5. Last song you’ve listened to?  Stay, Stay, Stay by Taylor Swift.

6. Furthest place you’ve travelled?  Germany

7. Chips or popcorn?  Chips!  I am a very picky, plain, boring person, but I get really tired of popcorn after a while of eating it!

8. Orange juice or apple juice?  Orange juice!  I used to always drink like heated apple juice up until I had a surgery like 10 years ago, and had apple flavoured laughing gas, and now I can’t drink apple juice!  There’s your little fun fact about Olivia.

9. Current nails?  Beyond Cozy by Essie

10. Thing your looking forward to in the month?  Well, I’m going Christmas shopping with my whole family on Saturday, so I’m pretty excited about that!

 

 

So look out for:

Winterlicious Tag

Holly Jolly Holiday Tag (one and two)

Ready For Christmas Tag (one and two)

Holiday Traditions Tag

Nail Of The Days

Christmas Wishlist

Christmas EVERYTHING….I’m planning on maybe doing a Christmas serious for everyday in December…thoughts?

Motivational Monday: New Favourite Quotes (Nov. 2012)

Hey guys!  So I’ve recently found some amazing quotes on tumblr, and wanted to share them for Motivational Monday!

 

“The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts and the stupid people are full of confidence”

“Be the person you want to meet”

“Promote what you love instead of smashing what you hate”

“I like people that smile while it’s raining”

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle”

“When something bad happens, you have three choices; you can let it define you, you can let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you”

“You just have to say hi.  They may ignore you, they may marry you.  And that possibility is worth one word”

“Everything in life is temporary.  So if things are going good, enjoy it because it won’t last forever.  And if things are going bad, don’t worry.  It can’t last forever either”

“Life is a great big canvas.  Throw all the paint on it you can.”

“Live in such a way that is someone spoke badly of you no one would believe it.”

“Always wear you invisible crown.”

 

 

That’s it for today!  Have a good week!
