December 4: What fashion are you into right now?  Do you prefer old stand-bys, or are there new trends this year that have caught your eye?

December 5: Winter scents!  What EDTs are you wearing?  What candles are you burning?  What other scents say "holiday" to you?

December 6: Ornaments aren't just for the tree!  What hair ornaments are you wearing, or would you like to wear?  And of course what type do you like on the tree?

December 17: Favorite holiday movie (or TV) characters?  It could be a lead, or an obscure character.

December 18: Dish on greeting cards!  The good, the bad, and the boring.  And don't forget the little touches like stamps, stickers, etc.

December 19: Jewels, jewels and more jewels.  Do you want jewelry this year?  What pieces fill you with wonder?  Do you have go-to items that you wear this time of year?

@Titian06 nice that your turn on the heart isn't until winter.  My heat has been on and off since early October 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

So has mine, @CorgiMommy   Winter doesn't start until Dec. 21 at 9:27 PM EDT.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@Titian06 “Turn on the heat” That is very true! 😂

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Holiday heels or boots?

 

I love a good heel!  

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 2:  What's the first thing you do to kick off winter?

 

Tune up my skis, check to make sure the snow blower is in good working condition, and hope for snow!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 1:  How are you incorporating pink into the season?

 

Just pink frosting on my birthday cake.  Yes I have a lousy December birthday 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

12/2: light BBW candles!  I discovered crunchy English toffee (new this year) and am really enjoying it.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@greeneyedgirl107 always fun to discover something new

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CorgiMommy yes!  I wish it came in single wick, then I'd send one to my sister. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 2: What's the first thing you do to kick off winter?

 

I decorate our mantle. This year, Target has these Christmas village sets/houses and I spent a good 2 weeks trying to find them all. 

 

Not a pic of my mantle, just of what I'm talking about LOL.

@AznAngelLiz so cute

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

That set is super cute and festive @AznAngelLiz. I love that there’s a tiny Target store too. 😂

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 1: How will you incorporate pink into the season? I'm not sure yet! I think maybe with gift wrap - I love to have fun with wrapping gifts and making them look really aesthetically pleasing. Since I am not getting anyone anything big this year, just a few small things each, I'm planning to go all out and get more creative with the gift wrap. I'd like to incorporate some less common holiday colors, so maybe some pink ribbon or flower toppers!

December 2: What's the first thing you do to kick off winter? Not winter exactly, but cold weather - put the wool blanket on my bed, and gather kindling and stack logs to prepare for woodstove season. It's all about keeping warm!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@caitbird who doesn't love a cozy blanket, have fun

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@caitbird I stink at wrapping gifts so I usually just splurge on gift bags whenever possible, which I had the skills to wrap nicely but I can barely cut the wrapping paper straight 🤣

 

A woodstove sounds so lovely and cozy ❤️ Enjoy the season! 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@caitbird A wood burning stove! That is so fun! I miss the sound of a crackling fire. My parents place had a fireplace. We would light it once in a while, especially around the holidays, and roast marshmallows. Our place now doesn’t have one and putting on the fireplace channel on TV just isn’t the same. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@JoSometimes  I love having a woodstove, we have it burning most days in the coldest months and it definitely makes the house feel much more cozy!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 1: How will you incorporate pink into the season?

This year I picked up a few holiday scented candles that are pink themselves and lean towards the more fruity brighter side of the scent spectrum. Candier Candles makes a beautiful pink candle that I would've loved to grab but it sold out a few weeks back called I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas, hopefully I can get my hands on it before the holidays end. 🙂🎀

December 2: What's the first thing you do to kick off winter?

One of the first things I usually do to kick off winter is... bring the heated blanket out of the closet. 🤣 We've already gotten snow up here before December even hit and that heated blanket has been my best friend as of late. 👭💕

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@QueenMarceline The description of that pink Christmas candle is hilarious! I hope you’re able to find it soon. 

This winter has been a bit weird. We finally got some real snow here. We had the lightest dusting earlier this week but it didn’t stick around. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@JoSometimes Hahah I think so too, hopefully I can snag it and share my thoughts on here soon 🙂

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@QueenMarceline that candle description sounds like it would smell sooo good! And it looks pretty too.

 

I bet the snow looks beautiful. I used to live in Chicago and winter was one of the prettiest times of the year.
