Our favourite time of the year is finally here! It is time to pull out those warm, oversized clothes, drink hot chocolate, sleep a little longer and of course enjoy the holidays and gifts. If only this season wasn’t so cruel on our hair and skin winters would have been so close to our expectations. 

Here’s a list of thoughts every girl has during winter and how far it is from reality.

End up with a nail art that’s nowhere close to candy or cane or anything holiday related for that matter.

Remember you have chapped lips so you lean on for a lip balm instead.
