Cozy Winter Tag!

The temperatures are going down and this is my favorite time of the year. I am the kind of person who gets happier during the rainy and cold days. I just don’t get it when people call such beautiful weather gloomy and boring!
Here in U.A.E, the only two seasons we have are summer and winter. In summer the temperatures go above 50 degree Celsius burning the hell out of you.  In winters it doesn’t really snow here except sometimes in the mountainous areas. So it is like a big happy moment when it rains and gets cold here.
I have lately seen many vloggers and bloggers doing ‘Sweater Weather’ and ‘Winter’ tags. I really love such tags and thought of mixing these two up and do a fun ‘Cozy Winter Tag’!!! I would love it if you all take part even if you're not listed below or not a blogger.
The rules
·      Answer the 12 questions.
·      List the friends you want to do the tag.
·      Let them know you nominated them.
So ready??? Here are the questions and my answers to it!!
1. Your favorite winter beauty routine?
Having a hot shower and slathering on yummy smelling moisturizer (Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Massage Cream at the moment).
2. Your favorite winter lip product?
My lips get super-duper dry during winter so I constantly have Sebamed lip balm with me.
3. Your favorite winter nail polish?
I don’t paint my nails. I just hate the scent of nail polishes and waiting for it to dry. I get too conscious being careful with whatever I do if I paint my nails. But I like seeing and designing other’s nails (wink)! Recently I loved a magnetic nail polish my friend wore.
4. Dark lips or winged eye liner?
Winged Eyeliner definitely!
5. Your favorite winter clothing?
Thick Cotton leggings. They feel comfy and warmer than jeans!
6. Your favorite winter accessory?
Pashmina Hijab. Warm and comfy in this weather!!
7. Your favorite winter comfort food?
Such a difficult task for a foodie like me! But nothing beats my Moms’ Chicken Macaroni!
8. Your favorite winter beverage?
Let me get a little desi here and say ‘Masala Chai’ (Masala tea). I would have this everyday if possible.
9. Your favorite winter scent/candle?
I am totally in love with the scent of the sugar, coffee and coconut oil scrub I use at the moment. It feels so pampering. 
As for candle I like Vanilla Cupcake candles from Yankee Candle. 
10. Your favorite winter memory?
There are 3 memories
- Meeting my little brother and sister for the first time in hospital (Both were born in March).
- College picnic where I first met my hubby!
11. Your favorite winter decoration?
Candles ;)
12. Your favorite winter/holiday movie?
Home Alone 1,
and 3!!! 
My absolute favorite ever!!

    1. Hey Alia...Why don't you tell me about your winter faves....Join in :))

  2. Ooh that chicken macaroni looks amazing!. Yum!. Thanks for tagging me. I don't do things differently just for winter really!. I dress pretty much the same in winter and summer (my dress sense sucks), I don't buy candles (though I would love to and if I decide to start, I'll head directly to Bath and Body Works), don't wear nail polish, no special wintery memories.Jeez!. It's sad :(.. But I gotta say, I LOVE winter. The low temperature is awesome to simply cuddle and sleep ♡. I would never say it's gloomy or boring. I look forward to winter always. The scrub sounds great. Am sure it smells great. Coffee is good for fighting cellulite so it's a great combination you have done. Loved reading your post!. If I ever visit you, tell your mom to make that macaroni pleasee :D
