Winter break is coming to an end, so over the past week(end), I was up in Utah with family and friends on our annual post-Christmas ski trip.
Last year there was a huge snowfall day on one of the days we skied, and it was painfully cold. It snowed on our faces and onto our ski goggles while we skied- I'm not sure if that is cool or horrible. This year, was not as cold, which unfortunately made the slopes icier than usual, and hard to ski/board on. None of the dry powdery fresh Utah snow that I look forward to every year ): but I guess on the plus side, I didn't need to layer up as much.
I heard it was 72° in Southern California on Christmas day too this year ):

Whenever I go skiing, I don't like to wear a lot of makeup because there's no point in doing so because of goggles. I did put on a coat of mascara though, and some lipstick (which I later regret doing because I decided to put on a face mask.) The most important thing is to style your hair. In these photos I decided to curl my hair with a 2" iron barrel, and wear a beanie to keep everything in place. Another cute look would be braids to avoid crazy hair, or (on my second day of skiing / unpictured/ I wore...) a pony tail to keep it all together and a fleece head band to keep your head warm.
With the weather conditions being so dry in the mountains, always remember to bring a good face cr ème and/or body moisturizer. OH! And I hope everyone never makes the same mistake that I made on this trip to forget sun protection/ sunscreen!!! Oh my geebies, thank goodness I zipped my jacket up all the way, and hid my face in my jacket, and the upper half of my face shielded by my goggles, because for about 20 minutes I had a 'half face' tan and my friend told me it looked like I had a beard and had just shaved!! D: How horrible would that be if it had stayed longer than 20 minutes.
I hope everyone had a fun and eventful Christmas break.
