BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

This is a special area for us to talk about all the fun of the season.  No matter what you celebrate or how, we want to share it!  This is a thread inspired by those of veronika23 from yesteryear.  You can post about beauty, memories, traditions or anything you want.

December 6: If you could give Santa an insane beauty wish-list, what would be on it?

December 7: What traditions do you like to follow?  Are there any new ones you want to start?

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@greeneyedgirl107  Thanks for hosting!

 

12/1-  What puts you in the holiday spirit the most?  Our Christmas tree.  It's also the last decoration we put away after Christmas (sometimes in February!)

 

12/2- What fragrance gives you holiday vibes?  None, sorry!

 

12/3- Which holiday movies are on your watch list?  Which haven't you seen?  Oh, we've neglected watching these for a few years!  We always watch Elf and Miracle on 34th St.  I need to watch White Christmas this year.  I probably haven't seen any Hallmark Christmas movies.

 

12/4- Who would you like to kiss under the mistletoe?  My husband.

 

12/5- What is your decorating style?  Lots of lights, I'm not afraid to use fake vinyl snowflakes on the windows.

 

12/6- If you could give Santa an insane beaut list...Oh, I think I would list all of Valentino's products!  I'd like to try them, but not pay for them.

A couple days late, but Happy Anniversary to you, @bakeamuffin!

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Happy belated 10th anniversary, @bakeamuffin! ๐Ÿ’–

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@bakeamuffin That Hourglass brush set looks so tempting!  I have two kinds of face brushes from them and they're probably my favorite.  Happy anniversary! ๐ŸŒน

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Happy anniversary, @bakeamuffin !  ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒน๐Ÿพ

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Happy 10th @bakeamuffin !  Such a romantic time of year for you guys!

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 1: What puts you in the holiday spirit the most? Christmas decorations, especially seeing our neighbor's lights. 

December 2: What fragrance gives you total holiday vibes? Winter Candy Apple is my JAM during the holidays season. Candles, shower gel, lotion, mist...EVERYTHING. ๐Ÿ˜‚

December 3: What holiday movies are on your watch list?  Which ones haven't you seen yet? I don't watch a lot of movies but I've heard Love, Actually is good and it's been on my list to watch forever but I just never do. 

December 4: Who would you like to kiss under the mistletoe? My husband

December 5: What is your decorating style? I usually change it up every year. This year it's Winter Wonderland (fur, white, silver and a touch of red).

December 6: If you could give Santa an insane beauty wish-list, what would be on it? I don't think I have a whole lot of makeup items that are insane, but I do want to try the La Prairie line. 

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@AznAngelLiz Love the idea of a fur theme!

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@greeneyedgirl107 It actually came from a couple of decorative trees I got last year at Bath & Body Works sale after Christmas and then I was able to find discounted stockings that kind of match, so I just had to!!

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Aw, I love your decor, @AznAngelLiz! It's so pretty! 

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@AznAngelLiz Love it all!!!  I always wanted a fireplace with a mantle.  My home actually had a fireplace, but at some point it got walled up.  If it were safe, I'd totally have it restored.  I have a friend with three fireplaces (one has three sides) - I'm so jealous!  But anyway, I adore the fur and the white theme!

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@AznAngelLiz  Love, Actually was an addictive movie for some reason.  You have to be kind of awake to follow it though. ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 6: If you could give Santa an insane beauty wish-list, what would be on it?

DDG Spectralite and a Spa Day.

 

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 1: What puts you in the holiday spirit the most?  Seeing Christmas decorations, hearing Christmas music.

 

December 2: What fragrance gives you total holiday vibes?  Balsam!  I also *love* my BBW candles in Hot Cocoa & Cream and Merry Cookie.

 

December 3: What holiday movies are on your watch list?  Which ones haven't you seen yet?  "Gremlins," "Home Alone," "Die Hard," "A Mickey Mouse Christmas Carol,"...There are so many!  I haven't seen "Christmas in Connecticut" yet, so I DVR'd it.

 

December 4: Who would you like to kiss under the mistletoe?  Hmmmm - I came up with this question but am having a hard time coming up with my "top five" list as my friend and I used to call it.  Let's say, George Clooney, Charlie Hunnam, Tom Hardy...and I'll get back to you about another two.

 

December 5: What is your decorating style?  I like classic, nostalgic, and Victoria style.

 

December 6: If you could give Santa an insane beauty wish-list, what would be on it?  Wow - this could take a while.  I was at Ulta the other day and wanted to grab a bunch of IT Cosmetics brushes.  Also, Laura Mercier Rouge Essentiel Silky Cream Lipstick IT Cosmetics Pillow Lips Solid Serum Lip Gloss Natasha Denona Glam Eyeshadow Palette Urban Decay Vice Hydrating Lipstick .  And to be totally greedy, how about a stocking filled with TOM FORD Eye Color Quad Eyeshadow Palettesand Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eyeshadow Palettes?  And a VB eyeliner, and one or two of her lipstick

 

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Love seeing Gremlins on your must watch list, @greeneyedgirl107! It's such a good movie. 

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@quspork I was just writing my sister a card about how I rec that she watch that movie.  I also write her about how when she was little she used to wear by Gizmo nightgown, which I think my parents gave me the first Christmas we spent in our house.  I also had a Gizmo backpack!  Mine was chld-size and hot pink.

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Aw, I love that, @greeneyedgirl107! Gizmo is so adorable. 

Re: BIC's 2021 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@greeneyedgirl107 The stocking with Tom Ford and Charlotte Tilbury quads sounds like the stocking of my dreams!๐Ÿ˜‰
