How Does Tania Holiday?


This holiday season, ELOQUII has invited some of our fave friends to share how they holiday, from festive traditions to getting ready tips. For some inspiration for your holiday #XOQ, check out an exclusive ELQ&A with Tania K of Mama In Bloom. Name: Tania Kolesnik

Location: Ontario, Canada

Job: Right now? Full time mom, part time everything else


Describe yourself in 5 words: Passionate, Sociable, Creative, Sensitive & Unique

Where’s the place that you call home? Our family travels a lot but we consider Prince Edward County, Canada our home!  I'd say Tulum & NYC are our close seconds... our homes away from home.

Happiest Holiday Tradition: Baking festive cookies with our babes for the holidays are some of our most cherished memories! Both of them perched on the dining room table, making the most beautiful mess of sprinkles you ever did see with Christmas music playing in the background... pure bliss!


Sparkles or Velvet? Both! Making someone choose is pure torture...

Instant Outfit Update: Necklace or Earring? Necklaces all the way! I've never been a statement necklace kind of gal but the whole tassel trend is something I can get behind!


5 things on your wish list? A Letterfolk letter board for above the mantle, this gorgeous white sheer detail gown from ELOQUII, a personalized brass easel photo calendar from Artifact Uprising, a subscription from my most beloved Darling Magazine that celebrates the art of being a woman & world peace (but actually)!

Stiletto or Flats? Mom of two = flats!


The best gift to give this year is? I love giving & receiving charitable donations this time of year! A feel good gift that makes a difference!

Best lipstick on the planet? MAC's Runway Hit


The beauty trick that keeps you beautiful? Sleep, water, good moisturizer (I love the Aesop Elemental Facial Barrier Cream) & self love!

Smokey eye or bold lip? Bold lip! Peachy nudes, deep plums & bright reds for the win!


Best stocking stuffer? Lush bath bombs!

What are your secrets to creating the perfect #XOQ? Great natural light, an outfit you feel amazing in & a soulful smile.


Top three songs on holiday playlist? She & Him's rendition of "Baby, It's Cold Outside," Bing Crosby's "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" & "What Christmas Means To Me" by Hanson... for nostalgia's sake.
