@Titian06 you nailed how blue, white and silver work together 

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

Thanks, @CorgiMommy !  I saw you have a thing for blue, white, and silver too! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

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

Dec 7:  white and blue

 

When I was a kid, we had all blue lights on our tree and outdoors.  Blue is peaceful, and beautiful when it snows.

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

@greeneyedgirl107 definitely 

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

Dec7- My work uniform is blue and we have a white blouse option so that may be cheating. Anyway I like both colors because they are classic.

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

@Loretta55 and Navy blue and white is really elegant 

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

At one time @CorgiMommy, I remember reading an article about Donna Karan asking her workers to wear a navy gaberdine blazer with a crisp white blouse and jeans. I always liked that look.

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

December 7: Shades of blue and white: how do these colors inspire you for Hanukkah, or in general this time of year?  

 

I love blue and white this time of year add silver and you have, to me, a perfect winter color combination.  That elegant winter feeling.

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?

 

I've been loving scrunchies of all kinds lately, the Slip skinny ones have been my go-to's for a while but last year a friend got me a set with a bunch of chunkier ones and I love them! Other than that, I love the look of rhinestone bobby-pins or clips, which instantly make me think of @SportyGirly125 โค๏ธ ๐Ÿ™‚ I only own a couple but would love to incorporate them more into my looks this month ๐Ÿค—

I think headbands are super cute. Iโ€™d love to wear one in my natural hair once itโ€™s grown out.

On trees, I like seeing nature-inspired ornaments like pine cones, berries, holly. I like the minimalist approach when it comes to Christmas decor. 

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

@JoSometimes I agree less is more for decor.  It means more then  over the top decorating, IMO

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

Oh I need to catch up! 

Dec 1- pink blush is the easiest way to incorporate pink!  Or a pink Santa hat;)

 

Dec 2-  to kick off the holidays we play Christmas music and bake a sacrificial batch of cookies (sacrificial because the first batch never even makes it to the cookie jar;))

 

Day 3- I want candy canes painted on my nails:) 

 

Day 4-  hmmmm, I mostly go for Lolita -esque fashion but with timeless pieces mixed in with unusual finds.  I love me a good silk button up shirt paired with a fun hat! 

Day 5- Itโ€™s not new but I have been using Phlur Apricot Privรฉe  a lot lately.  Itโ€™s mildly spicy and โ€˜adultโ€™ sweet.  

Day 6-  Iโ€™ve been wearing a lot of berets, furry pompom scrunchies, and black/green sequin scrunchies.  And Santa hats.  

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

@heartsmyface I do love the candy cane nail idea

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

"Sacrificial batch of cookies"...love that @heartsmyface ! ๐Ÿคฃ

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

@Titian06 @heartsmyface That is such a smart idea! I used to do that as a kid and my own kids are doing that tooโ€ฆ ๐Ÿช๐Ÿช๐Ÿช

I have short hair so no ornaments for me just a headband every so often.

 

The Christmas tree is covered in ornaments that reflect our life.  We buy an ornament whenever we travel.  Also ornaments that represent our hobbies and , of course, lots of corgi ornaments!

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

@CorgiMommy Awww I love the idea of special ornaments that reflect your family. Theyโ€™ll bring back happy memories and make Christmas all the more special. 

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

@JoSometimes it is fun looking at them as they ho on the tree 

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

@CorgiMommy  Thatโ€™s what we do with ornaments!  It makes decorating the tree so nostalgic!  

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

@heartsmyface the new ones go on first.  

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

Dec 6- I wear scrunchies and jaw clips in my hair. I am an empty nester so I am not putting up a Christmas tree. I used to like to hang the multi colored balls and lots of tinsel. I swore that I was still picking up the tinsel over the summer.
