BLOGMAS 2016 - Days 16, 17, 18 and 19

Well friends, my Blogmas went to hell.  I am so sorry about this, but the past few days I have been extremely busy, lot of commitments, family things, had to take engagement photos for my niece and yesterday I needed a day of relaxation and doing nothing so that I could catch up on my house cleaning and laundry.

So, that meant that I missed 3 days of Blogmas, and I knew that might be happening because honestly, no matter how much I would like to post daily, the closer it gets to the big day, the more I may miss some.  I think today I'm going to try and actually get all my posts typed up and scheduled to publish so I won't miss anymore :)

Anyway, let's get on with it......


❄ Top 2 Winter Beauty Essentials
Good chap stick or lip balm and a really good moisturizer too.  Can't go without those. 

❄ Top 2 Winter Fashion Essentials
Boots, I wait all year long to wear them.  Scarves, super cute scarves are a must for Winter. 

❄ Favorite Winter Accessory
Probably some cute beanie hats or slouchy hats. 

❄ Favorite Winter Nail Polish
I tend to wear reds, silvers, but even a nice pink with some glitter. 

❄ Hot Cocoa or Apple Cider?
Hot Cocoa all the way.

❄ Favorite Winter Candle?
My Snowman scented candle from Yankee Candle

❄ Snowboarding or Skiing?
I do neither lol

❄ Have you ever gone Ice Skating? Are you any good or do you FAIL miserably?
Yes, when I was younger back in South Africa, we would go quite often and I absolutely loved it.  So much fun.  Haven't gone in well over 20 years though. 

❄ Does it snow where you live?
Not really, we got one day of snow last year, or rather, one hour of snow and it didn't stick at all. 

❄ Have you ever made a snowman?


I'm not quite sure if this means wishes for others or wishes for myself.

I guess if it's for others, I just wish for a healthy and blessed Christmas and new year ahead, and same thing for myself and my family, obviously.

If it's for Christmas presents, well I really don't have much I want or need, so I guess I don't really have any.


I love homemade, I really do like knowing that someone took time to make something for me, or that I am giving someone something I put a lot of time and effort into.

This year, I am making two gifts, which will be those candles I showed you many years ago.  You print the picture onto wax paper and then use a hair dryer to transfer the image to the candle.  They're beautiful gifts and not very expensive, which is something I need this year.

Rest of the gifts will be store bought.  BUT, we are keeping it very simple this year, not spending a lot of money and not going overboard.
