I was looking for some blog inspiration and came across The Winter Tag. I don’t think I’ve ever done one of these on my blog so thought I’d give it a go.
What are your favourite things about Winter?
The cold temperatures! I hate being too hot and find it much easier to warm up than cool down. So the cold temperatures work for me. Winter also includes presents as both Christmas and my Birthday are in the winter! And the final thing I love about Winter? The new drinks to try at Starbucks and Costa!!
What is your favourite Winter outfit?
I am by no means a trendsetter or a follower of fashion so I don’t really have a favourite winter outfit. You’ll usually find me in joggers and a hoodie. However when it comes to Winter I do like to accessorize with nice scarves and a hat. I have a few of both and like to switch between them during the cold Winter months.
What is your favourite Winter food?
My slow cooker is used often during Winter. I love to make casseroles, soups or hearty stews. I don’t have a particular recipe that I follow I’m more of a throw everything in kind of person and see how it goes. I switch it up by changing the meats or vegetables I use as well as sometimes adding barley or lentils.
Favourite Winter drink?
It’s pretty clichéd but I enjoy hot chocolate in the Winter. I make my own at home and add in peppermint syrup, marshmallows and whipped cream on the top.
What is your dream way to spend a Winter’s day?
Again, it sounds like a total cliché but sitting under a blanket and either watching a movie or reading a book with a candle burning is one of my favourite things to do on a Winter’s Day. However, I also enjoy going for a walk in the Winter sunshine. When it’s still cold but the sky is brilliant blue, makes you feel lucky to be alive.
How do you like to do your make-up in the Winter?
I very rarely wear make-up.
What are you hoping Santa brings you?
Obviously I am writing this after Christmas but basically I got everything I asked for in this post.
What are the first three things that remind you of Winter?
Snow, Cold weather and Robins!
What is your favourite Winter song?
My favourite Winter song is Warm This Winter by Gabriella Cilmi. My favourite Christmas song is Driving Home for Christmas by Chris Rea.
What is your favourite Winter memory?
Probably getting married. We were married right before Christmas and had a full on Christmas wedding. Our Wedding Breakfast was a Christmas Dinner and our favours were tree decorations. We had crackers on the table and little Christmas trees down the centre of the tables that our guests were then free to take home with them.
What is your favourite Winter scent?
My favourite Winter scent is the Yankee Candle “Candy Cane Lane” it smells of peppermint and chocolate.
Finish this sentence…If I could have one wish this Christmas it would be…
Again, obviously I’m doing this after Christmas so I’m going to change this to my New Year wish and that would be to stick to my running goals and see them improve.
