Winterlicious Tag!

1) Favorite Winter Nail Polish?
I'm crazy enough to own more nail polishes than a salon. I correlate certain months with colors. December- Reds, Greens & Golds, January- Silvers, Metallics, Glitters, Blues. February- Reds, Pinks, Purples. March- Greens, Oranges, Greys. A Few Favorites- OPI An Affair In Red Square, OPI Crown Me Already, LA Colors Color Craze Live, OPI Glitzerland, Essie Penny Talk, Chanel Peridot, OPI Step Right Up, Revlon Perplex, Zoya Veruschka... I could go on for an eternity so I'll stop right there.

2) Favorite Winter lip product?
A classic red lip (Chanel Fire or NARS Cruella), berry shades or "vampy" bordeauxs are also nice but a good lip balm is essential- Burt's Bees does the trick quite nicely. Revlon Lip Butters and YSL Volupte Sheer Candy are my favorite products for hydration and color.

3) Most worn Winter clothing piece?
If we're keeping it real, I have to be honest and admit that it's leggings- whether for sleep, working out, under skirts, lounging around the house, dressing up a sweater dress or tunic... there is a pair for everything.




4) Most worn Winter accessory?
Scarfs! Scarfs! ...and more scarfs (they definitely deserve a prettier name)! I love infinity scarfs but my gigantic leopard print scarf is my favorite.


Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse Leopard Scarf.

5) Favorite winter scent/candle?
As far as candles go, I'm easy to please. Anything woodsy is nice. Perfume- Gucci Guilty. Overall, I love the scent of fresh air when it's cold or snowing.






6) Favorite Winter beverage?
Seasonal Christmas/Winter Ales or Red Wine (Pinot Noir).  



7) All time favorite movie that's primarily set during the Winter?
It's difficult to think of one that isn't exclusively a holiday movie (A Christmas Story, Home Alone, The Family Stone, etc.)... hmmm... I'm sure there's a better answer in my head but I'll go with Some Girls or Zack and Miri Make a Porno.



8) Favorite non-holiday song with a lyrical/musical Winter theme?

"Blood Bank" by Bon Iver is up there.



But as far as winter themed music videos go, "Sleep Forever" by Portugal. The Man is the ultimate:


9) Favorite Winter food/treat?
Peppermints!






















10) Favorite Winter activity?
Playoff football and hockey season! I'm missing the NHL.

















Now Playing: "Truth" by Alexander
*Love this song so much! It just doesn't get old for me.

My photo
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
