So Floridians tend to surround themselves with Christmas-like things to make up for it. Here are my top 5:
Cinnamon Pine Cones and/or Candles
I remember my mom burning Cinnamon Apple scented candles during the holidays and sometimes she’d come home with cinnamon pine cones from the grocery store. I also love pine scented anything! My favorite candles are the Signature Soy line from Target and they have some AMAZING holiday scents out!
I’m not an avid Starbucks drinker mainly because I’m cheap, but I love seeing the festive red cups everywhere! My Target also has a Starbucks in it, so when I pop in every 2 weeks or so during November and December I like to pick up one of their holiday themed lattes.
Etsy legit has some of the coolest crocheted holiday themed cozies for your cup too!
These are 100% useless here in Florida but I’m still a bit bitter that our starter home doesn’t have one. I mean, where am I supposed to hang our Christmas stockings!? WHERE!??
Going back to the Signature Soy candles I love, a favorite of mine this season has been Hickory Hearth, which smells like a bunch of toasty logs. I love it!
I know folks where red lipstick year round, but I save if for special occasions (namely Christmas). There is nothing wrong with wearing it year round, of course! It’s just too attention grabbing for my taste and really prefer to just blend in. I’ve mentioned it before, but my favorite red lipstick is this LOC demi-matte one in “Wildest Dreams.”
While the rest of the world busies themselves with avoiding the mall during the holidays, I thrive off of it. Maybe it’s because I spent so many Christmas seasons working in them that I just can’t separate the two? Or maybe I’m just a few fries short of a happy meal… but I love the energy, the decor, the sales and seeing a red lipstick print on my Starbucks latte lid as I weave through the hustle and bustle.
If you ever get the chance to visit International Mall in Tampa, Fl during December it’s my favorite.
