Blogmas Day 5: Winter Likes & Dislikes💙❄️

It’s December, people are in the holiday spirit, it’s cold outside and I know many people especially in my family that love cold weather. I actually am not one of them. Winter is honestly my least favorite season (mainly because of the weather) but there are still many things that I do love about it! I think it’s like that with every season right? Things you’ll like and dislike about it. Today’s Blogmas post is going to be what I like and dislike about winter.

What I Like About Winter❄️

  • Having hot chocolate, with marshmallows on top of course!
  • Movies
  • Wearing sweaters, cardigans, & boots!
  • The snow
  • Scenery- A beautiful blanket of snow, before there’s any footprints or slush. The trees coated in snow, all the decorations
  • Decorating the Christmas tree and yard
  • The holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Year)
  • Shopping/great sales!
  • Soup. Yes, a warm bowl of soup or stew during the winter is amazing😋
  • Fuzzy long socks
  • Candy canes/peppermint. Gingerbread houses & Christmas cookies
  • Cuddling
  • Heaters/fireplace
  • Relaxing with a good book
  • Less bugs
  • Pajamas/onesies
  • Longer nights

What I Dislike About Winter❄️

  • Cold weather
  • Getting in & out of the shower while it’s cold
  • Not much to do outside like it is in the Summer especially for someone who doesn’t like being out in the cold much
  • Dirty snow, slush. Doesn’t look too appealing and it’s pretty messy.
  • Ice, slipping. Ugh! The worst!
  • Waiting for cars to warm up
  • Getting sick
  • Seeing the flowers die, bare trees, and dead grass
  • Getting out of bed in the morning. When it’s cold I just want to lay underneath the covers all day.
  • Having to bundle up to leave the house if it’s too cold out. I hate having to bundle up because it’s kind of uncomfortable.
  • Bulky coats. Bulky coats are definitely uncomfortable. Or maybe I’m the only one that thinks so?
  • Scraping car window of snow and ice. I don’t drive, but I’ve had to help people scrape their car windows before and it’s not meant to be a fun time.
  • Dry skin, but bloggers and vloggers can make great winter skin care content so that’s a plus.
  • Slow driving. It is so annoying when the roads are so bad but you have to be out and you have to drive or ride around very slow. I actually love car rides but I would prefer the normal speed.

Those are my Winter likes and dislikes. I’d love to know what you like or dislike about winter. Leave a comment letting me know. Leave a comment if you can relate to any of mine.💙❄️

Blogmas Day 3! What Am I Watching??💚✨

It’s day 3 of Blogmas and as I’m typing this I’m thinking about ending the night cozying up next to the heat and watching a good movie. It’s one of my favorite things about the holidays and tonight I’m going to share some of my favorite movies to watch during the winter. What movie will you be watching?

❄️My Favorite Christmas/Winter Movies❄️

1.Elf Elf is definitely one of my favorite comedy Christmas movies😂. I had to include it first, but this is in no particular order.

2.Holiday In Handcuffs I’m not sure if any of you have seen Holiday In Handcuffs before, I first saw it on ABC Family several years ago and loved it ever since. A waitress tries to fool her parents by kidnapping one of her customers, a handsome guy, bringing him to her parents and forcing him to pretend to be her partner for Christmas. A comedy with romance. If you haven’t seen it already, you might like it.🙂

3.Dr.Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas Okay, we all know how The Grinch stole Christmas right? Classic.

4.The Polar Express I’d say this is another classic. I think I’ve watched The Polar Express at some point during the holidays each year.

5.The Nightmare Before Christmas 6.Snow Day

7.The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion The Witch & The Wardrobe

8.The Ultimate Christmas Present This has to be one of my favorite Disney Channel Christmas movies.

9.Snowglobe Snowglobe is about a woman who is given a snow globe which turns out to be magical and transports her into a Christmas wonderland where everyday is December 25th.

10.Snow Dogs

11.Mr. Popper’s Penguins 12.Jack Frost

Those are just 12 of my favorites but of course there are so many others that are just as wonderful to watch. What are some of your favorite holiday movies? Do we share any favorites? Which movie from my list would you watch if you could after reading this? Let me know in the comments.💚

The 2nd Day of Blogmas!💚✨

It’s the 2nd day of Blogmas!

Blogmas wouldn’t be complete without a wishlist of course, so for day 2 I’ll be sharing my personal holiday wishlist. I don’t count on getting much this year and Christmas isn’t about gifts especially when you’re older, but I thought it would still be fun to look around and create a list of what I would like if Santa or any loved ones came to visit this year😊

I want:

Cute notebook/planner

New iPad

Cute phone cases

Jewelry

Question: Is it weird to ask for notebooks as a gift? I’ve actually never done that and now I’m wondering why🤷🏽‍♀️

I need:

Lotion

Blanket

I’ll wear:

Underwear

Pajamas/slippers

Cute scarf

Sweaters/sweatshirts

I’ll read:

Milk And Honey by Rupi Kaur

The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur

Girl Boss by Sophia Amoruso

One Of Us Is Lying by Karen M.Mcmanus

Into The Water by Paula Hawkins

But something I would really love:

Something personalized with my name on it (other than a t-shirt or mug) or with a personalized message from the one gifting me. I think that would be really thoughtful and sweet.

That wasn’t much to ask for and not long if a list at all right?😊

What are some things on your Christmas wishlist this year? Let me know in the comments.💖✨

Merry Blogmas! I’m participating💚✨

Merry Blogmas dear blog friends! It’s actually quite weird for me to say because this is my first time participating in Blogmas as this is my first year as a blogger. But also because I haven’t been posting as frequently, especially not everyday I haven’t done that in months. So much is still going on and I’ve been a bit busy, I plan to do a life update next week to fill you all in.

This month I will be posting everyday, early or late so just stop by when you get the chance to see if I’ve posted. I understand that some people do not celebrate Christmas or the holidays so for that reason there will be Christmas, winter, and other fun related posts.

As for Blogmas Day 1 I will be doing a simple post to get things started.

How many words can you make out of “Merry Blogmas?”

My list is down below. Comment what other words you came up with that I may have missed (3 or more letters.)

To make it more fun and challenging, time yourself and see how many different words you come up with in say…5-10 minutes?

Fun Friday #20: Desktop Wallpapers!✨

Happy Friday once again! I feel like I say happy Friday more than once a week because these weeks just go by so quickly. The past couple of days have been pretty gloomy with rain and thunder so I’m glad that earlier in the week I was able to capture some really nice photos of the sunset. I had been thinking about making wallpapers, twitter headers and such for a while now since I like making my own and done some for my 500 follower Q&A game winners a while back. I find it fun, relaxing, and creative. I love anything creative. So for today’s fun Friday post I decided to use some of the photos I took for desktop wallpapers. Since fall is approaching I also made a couple of wallpapers for that purpose using a Canva template. This will be the only time I post them on goldenpinkjournal, any others I make will be posted on sheliveslove so be sure to check there often for more.✨

I hope you all enjoy these desktop wallpapers! Try them out, let me know if they work well for you I’ll be practicing a lot more with them. Let me know which one is your favorite. I will be posting the original sunset images on ARoseInReverie.💖
