There’s a fun tag circulating throughout YouTube lately, and I thought it would be a great idea to answer the questions in post form. So this could either be an ode to everything I love about the season, or a thinly veiled excuse for me to go on an on about myself. Either way, enjoy!
Favorite Candle Scent?
I gravitate towards the same scents throughout the year – very musky, vanilla, spicy notes or warm cotton. I always have a stash of wax melts for my oil burner as well.
Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
This is like asking which of your children is your favorite. I’m loving my lavender vanilla hot chocolate lately, but coffee is my first choice.
What’s the best winter memory you have?
Watching Home Alone on VHS with my mom, and stuffing our faces with gingerbread cookies on Christmas morning is my favorite memory. I miss her dearly during the holidays, but it’s comforting to think about the fun we always had.
Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?
I think I’ve lost my winged eyeliner mojo lately, so I’ll go with dark lips. The NARS velvet matte lip pencils in Cruella and Dragon Girl are in heavy rotation, and I have the Hourglass liquid lipstick shade in Icon and the Sephora Lip Cream in Always Red in my cart.
Best Fragrance for Winter?
My taste in fragrance is similar to the candle scents I love – musky, with vanilla notes or warm cotton. And I’ve recently fallen in love with La Vie Est Belle from Lancome – it has a sweet component that reminds me of hot chocolate.
Favorite Thanksgiving food?
Lots and lots of stuffing. Macaroni and cheese, pumpkin pie, eggnog. Did I mention stuffing?
What is winter weather like where you live?
Freezing! But there’s nothing like winter in New York City.
Most worn sweater?
Oversized chunky cardigans are where it’s at.
Must-have winter nail polish?
Favorite Fall/Winter TV show?
Why Breaking Bad, of course! And I’ve been watching tons of re-runs of 80s/90s gems, Living Single, A Different World and Martin.
What song gets you into the winter spirit?
I’ve been listening to the Saint Heron compilation album lately, as well as anything by Jhene Aiko.
