My Winter Fashion Essentials // blogmas day 10

Boots

I have 4 pairs of boots that I switch up between. I have my favorites, which are brown riding boots that I wear with jeans, leggings, or even dresses. Then, I have s pair of black heeled booties I love to pair with dresses and leggings. Those booties are more for ‘going out’! Boots are essential to my winter wardrobe because I hate getting my feet wet in the snow. Boots are just more convenient!

Hats

I’m not a huge fan of hats but I do throw one on every now and then. I have one black Columbia beanie I love so much. It keep my head so warm! But I get major hat hair lol. I have to keep my husband from stealing it from me.

Cable Knit Socks

I love socks. Cable knit socks are even more to love. They are incredibly warm. And soft, too. I always think it is necessary to have a couple pairs of good, warm, socks for those snow days.

Blanket Scarves

Okay, my husband thinks I’m crazy for owning so many blanket scarves. He thinks they are too big and bulky but truth is they are just so warm I can’t let them go. I have two from Hollister that are lying on my couch right now because I literally use it as a blanket sometimes! I have a plain white one and two patented ones!Yes, that’s my scarf!

Leggings

Can you own too many pairs of black leggings? Because I have three. It is the ultimate outfit maker! You can pair leggings with just about anything and get away with it. Plus, they are excellent for layering. Pull them on under. Nice pair of jeans you you’ll be warm all day.Those are my essentials! I couldn’t get through Montana winter without them! Plus a few other things like a coat of course!

The Best Lingerie I’ve Tried! // Blogmas day 3

Hi friends!

I recently discovered the amazingness that is Adore Me.com. It is a subscription service but the amazing ting is, yoou don’t have to pay monthly. You can skip the month if you wnat. (I havn’t skipped anything yet haha) Victoria Secrect is where I would always get my intamates at, but for some reason, I started to feel bored of them. I mean, the quality is amazing and so were the styles but the prices are just… too much for my budget! And for my size, I take a long time to find a bra to fit me.

Adore Me.com has a ton of styles and not just lingere either! They have super cute pjs to choose from. The sizing is so on point. I feel so good wearing their products and I can spend so much time on their website just looking through all the styles. I probably have about 80 things added to my wishlist haha!

I love that fact that I now can feel, I don’t know ‘sexy’… when I usually don’t. I don’t like to spend a heaps amount of money on VS and when I find something I like it’s always too high for me. Don’t get me wrong through girls because VS is a great great store! I just fell in love with a new company and I’m okay with it!

I ordered another piece, a red bodysuit, oh my gosh it is so cute! I can’t wait to order more. I mean I am going to give all of my money to this place lol!

Have you tried Adore Me? What are your thoughts? Quick question, do you wear lingerie for yourself or your significant other? It is a little bit of both for me.

This can make a great gift for yourself this year, or if you are looking for a gift to give your hubby this is it too!

The Blogger Tag!

Personally, I love doing tags because it gives your readers a chance to get to know you better. When someone does a tag it brings out their personality, and you have a little moment where you and the blogger can talk about the interest you both share.

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?

My hair is naturally curly. I straighten my hair sometimes but then I always end up missing m curly hair so it doesn’t last long.

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?

I do both, the last few times, I’ve died my hair at home but I prefer going to a salon! I love when other people have to deal with my hair haha.

3. Do you have the same style every day or do you change it up?

Because I work, I usually wear it up in either a bun or ponytail. When I am off I am either too lazy to do it so it stays in a bun, or I wear it down.

4. Do you do your own medi/pedis or do you go to a salon

I do my own but I prefer to go to the salon. just like my hair, i am all for someone else doing it haha!

5. How often do you change your nail polish?

Probably once every two weeks. It does chip way before then, but again I’m sort of lazy… haha. Plus, I just like going to the salon. I love the relaxing feeling of it all.

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?

I do it in the winter as well, because I do go around the house in my bare feet, I don’t want to look at just plain nails ugh!

7. How long does it take to put on your makeup?

Around 5 minutes. For a normal day at work, I use concealer, eyeliner, and mascara and I’m out. But for a ‘glam’ day it takes around 10 minutes haha.

8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?

Face first! I don’t know, it sort of sets me off when someone does eyes first, is that weird haha!

9. Do you collect makeup? Or do you just buy what you need when you need it?

…I don’t ‘need’ any of it haha! I grew up with my momma always saying I don’t need to wear makeup so I just now jumped in on the makeup boat. I tend o buy what I need when I need it but I do have those times that I can’t pass up something and I have to have it.

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?

never, but I want to! I love the look of them, they make you look so dramatic I love it.

11. Do you do a full face or makeup every day?

Nope!

12. Do you wear makeup when you are home alone or with family?

No, unless I had it on before.

13. Do you leave the house without makeup?

Yes! Well, it depends on where I am going. If I’m going out the dinner, no. If I’m going grocery shopping and the whole nine yards, no. If I;m just swinging by to get gas or pick up something quick, yes,

14. How many high-end products do you have?

Not many, I am in the process of moving so I am actually giving away a lot of stuff to friends, some of being high-end products I don’t use. I am the drugstore makeup girl. I always go down the beauty isles and see what is new.

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night? Or you decide as you get ready?

I plan it the night before. I make sure EVERYTHING is set up right and looks good, I like to get allll the sleeps I can get haha!

16. How often do you change your handbag?

This one is tough because I don’t know exactly. I would say every couple of months I would switch it up. I like to clean out my purse every week if I remember to. And then I would say hey I want to switch back to this or that. I love purses though, my husband has to stop me from buying them.

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?

On workdays, I wake up at 4am, and I am in bed by 8:30pm no later than 9pm. Well, now that I m working a different shift I will be able to wake up at 7am and be in bed no later than 10pm! On my days off it depends on what I have to do but I stay in bed a while. Like I love to sleep so I am in bd a long while haha.

18. How often or when do you workout?

I like to workout every week. Twice a week if I can. I love to do Yoga and I have a new workout I m trying with those resistant bands. Girl, your butt will thank me because those bands really help you with squats if you are bad at them like me. Hmmm, sounds like a new blog post in the making!

I use the Nikon Coolpix L840. I really love it because it is simple to use and it is a plum color! I take it everywhere. I also use my iPhone 7 for quick snaps.

28. How often do you clean your house?

Every day I do minimal cleaning and every week I do a deep clean of everything and change all the wax in my Scentsy warmers and light up my candles. It is sooo relaxing having a freshly cleaned and vacuumed house with all the laundry going (not folded yet, like it never gets folded honestly) and then I have a nice clear desk for blogging and bible journaling.

Pink!

30. Do you swear?

Rarely. I don;t like to but sometimes it can slip out.

Well, there it is guys! Thanks for reading and learning a little bit about me. I really feel like when I do little tags and questionnaires about my self I learn more that I never realized,. I see how I have changed over time to who I am now. I don’t know, I can just see it haha! Thanks for reading!
