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

@Loretta55   Haha, we found pine needles still poking out of the baseboards when we moved and did the deep clean. Itโ€™s impossible to get them all!  

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

@Loretta55 All things sparkly and glittery are forever. We are all destined to find random flecks of glitter and little strands of tinsel in the corners of our homes from Christmas that were like 12 years ago. It is the law. ๐Ÿคฃ

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

@JoSometimes  Yep!  It doesnโ€™t matter how well you think you cleaned.  Thereโ€™s always more hiding in the cracks.

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

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?  

 

Hair:  I wear jaw clips.

 

Tree:  I don't put up a tree, so I'm not sure how I would decorate if I had one.  Probably in shades of red and white with a few cat themed thrown in. ๐Ÿ˜

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

I think cat ornaments would look pretty cute ๐Ÿ˜ป @Titian06 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

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?

 

Iโ€™ve been dressing more androgynously lately if that counts? Iโ€™ve been mixing and matching menโ€™s and womenโ€™s clothing to wear to work. I have a couple of cheesy Christmas outfits planned for the last few days before Christmas break.

 

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

 

Iโ€™m not an EDT kind of person. Sometimes I get headaches from certain scents. I do enjoy Balsam scented candles in the winter though. Anything that evokes a feeling of being outside on a crisp winter day without actually being out in the cold. 

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

@JoSometimes Haha, hope you share some of the cheesy Christmas outfits with us. I bet they're great! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค๏ธ

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

@QueenMarceline I have a few in mind. Theyโ€™re dependent on what they organize at work. Iโ€™ll try to post some. 

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

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

 

I've been wearing KILIAN Paris Apple Brandy Eau de Parfum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL Eau de Parfum Spray this week. Looking at other posts, it looks like this is a pretty popular scent for this time of year. I'm always impressed by the longevity on this one. I applied just a little this morning, and I can still smell it this evening. 

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

@PrettyPaint This is definitely my favorite Kilian Paris scent โค๏ธ good pick!

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

12/5 BBW hot cocoa and cream.  BBW crunchy English toffee.

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

@greeneyedgirl107 I believe I snagged the Crunchy English Toffee on my last trip to B&BW, cannot wait to try especially after hearing it's one of your faves โค๏ธ 

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

@QueenMarceline I really hope you like it!  I tried their pistachio and vanilla and while it was all right, I didn't love it.  Also tried their cocoa covered chestnuts ๐ŸŒฐ or something, but disliked it.

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

@greeneyedgirl107 Have not given either of those a go, admittedly I am saving some of the B&BW candles for closer to the holidays. But I think I'm going to fire up Crunchy English Toffee later this week/weekend so I will definitely keep you posted ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I haven't tried the pistachio/vanilla but heard they have it and that it's worth a try. Didn't see it last time I was in store but then again, it's not very hard to miss a candle in that store. ๐Ÿคฃ

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

@QueenMarceline I wish they had the gourmand scents in body sprays!

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

Both of those sound delicious! ๐Ÿคฉ @greeneyedgirl107 

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

@CynthieLu they do make your mouth water!

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

December 3: What holiday nail trend would you love to try? I want to try snowflake nail art of some sort. I am still growing my nails out so probably not this month, but maybe next year.

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? I don't really follow fashion trends tbh, I mostly just muddle along doing my own thing ๐Ÿ˜… . For this time of year that means lots of scarves and hats and sweaters (cardigans for work and oversized comfy ones for home). And of course my collection of fingerless gloves and hand warmers! (Yes, I hate being cold!)

December 5: Winter scents!  What EDTs are you wearing?  What candles are you burning?  What other scents say "holiday" to you? I love Ellis Brooklyn APRรˆS Eau de Parfum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL Eau de Parfum Spray for cold weather, and of course Maison Margiela 'REPLICA' By the Fireplace is one of the most iconic winter scents. As for other holiday scents - some of my favorites are pine, gingerbread and spiced apple cider!

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

@caitbird by the fireplace seems to be everyone's favorite
