Blogmas Day 6 - The Winterlicious Tag

I'm so excited to get to do this tag, as I love tags, especially anything that's themed with the holidays and Christmas. I was tagged to do this by Jessica at The Mod Mermaid so you should go and check out her answers too! Now, on to the questions...

1) Favourite Winter nail polish?
As mentioned in my November Favoruties post, my favourite nail polish for Winter is this one here, which is Jag-u-are by Essie. It is a beautiful sparkly red nail polish which is perfecct for the holiday season.

2) Favourite Winter lip product?
Since my lips are always so dry when it gets in the colder months I need to constantly apply some form of lip balm to my lips and for the past few months this has been my Baby Lips Lipbalms by Maybelline.

4) Most worn Winter clothing piece?
I bought this coat last year from H&M and it's my favourite coat when it's cold outside. I had wanted it the year before that but it sold out very quickly so I was so happy when I saw it again for sale last year. It's a parka style coat with a fluffy hood on the inside so it's super warm and cosy and I wear it almost time I go out anywhere. Also, the Wildfox Couture jumper is another thing which has become very common in my daily clothing.

5) Most worn Winter accessory?
Another piece I bought last year. This is from Forever 21 and I picked it up last year whilst I was in LA because it was starting to get a bit colder at night and I didn't bring enough clothing for that type of weather. I'm so glad I bought it because this is my favourite, favourite scarf, ever and I wear it so much, even if it doesn't really go with the rest of my outfit, although I think it goes with everything anyway.

6) Favourite Winter beverage?
I don't have a photograph for this as I have quite a few at the minute. Whenever I go to Starbucks I like to get either the Toffee Nut Latte from their Christmas menu, or else the Peppermint Hot Chocolate. Although over the past week I've realised how much I love the Hazelnut Hot Chocolate, with cream and cinnamon. So, so good.

7) All time favourite Christmas/holiday movie?
This was quite a hard decision for me to make as I love Christmas movies so much, and have at least 20 in my collection. I think if I could only watch one though it would have to be The Grinch. It's such a hilarious movie and I think I know every single line from it, it's such a quotable film! If I could choose another one I would also go with Elf as well for the same reason. I know every line from it as well and it's so quotable. My Facebook timeline is always filled with quotes from it whenever it's on TV.

8) Favourite Christmas/holiday song?

I'm choosing this song because it was literally the theme tune for my NYC trip with my friend, who I'm sure will be reading this at some point. It kept getting stuck in our heads the whole trip and we kept singing it randomly, except we didn't sing actual words, and I kept changing the end of it.

9) Favourite holiday food/treat?
Quite a hard one as I do love lots of holiday food and treats, but I bought some of this earlier today so I'm going to choose this as I actually love shortbread, especially when it has chocolate chips in it. This is star shaped so it's nice and festive!
10) What is your favourite Christmas decoration this year?
I have a lot of Christmas decorations but one of my friends got me this last year and it never got a chance to go on my tree so this was it's first year. It's so cute so I love it, but it's made of glass so I have to be careful with it incase my cat attacks the tree and breaks it (which he loves to do a lot).

11) What's at the top of your Christmas list this year?
I don't really have anything in particular that I want as I choose most of my presents so I already know everything I'm getting. I'll just say some good films and some nice smelling things from Lush. Or a keurig if anyone wants to get me one of those and ship it over since we don't sell them. I want one so bad!

12) What are your plans for the holidays this year?
The same as every year, do the rounds of the family's houses and get lots of nice food. Family, friends and food are the best things for this time of year. Also, my annual Christmas party should be fun too! I love  making some nice food for that. FOOD!

I hope everyone enjoyed reading this post as I much as I enjoyed writing it for you all. I'm going to tag everyone in this post because I love to hear/read about anything Christmas/holiday themed so the more people who do it, the better! I particularly would like to hear from the following three people though....

Rebekah at Second Hand News

Claire at J'adore.
