GRWM (Virtual) Holiday Party Edition with Liz Trinnear

TEAM KNIX / DEC 17, 2020

This year, so many of us are making holiday plans that look a little different from season’s past. And while decking the halls and carolling the bells might not feel exactly the same, it doesn’t mean we can’t find new ways to make memories and celebrate! 

We recently sat down to chat with our dear friend Liz Trinnear (and our pick for the top of Santa’s Nice List), to learn about her favorite holiday traditions, how she’s adjusting this year, and most importantly— what Polly Pocket has to do with it.

Check out our IGTV to watch Liz turn her daytime Knix look into a glam moment for a Zoom Holiday Party, and read on to learn about her best party trick.

Hi Liz! What are your plans for the holidays?

Like many around the world, this holiday season is going to look a lot different from any other year. Sadly, I will not be making it home to Canada for the holidays but I will be sure to have a Christmas morning FaceTime with my brother and his family in Vancouver Island and my parents in Ontario. So incredibly grateful for technology! 

What’s your fav end of the year tradition? 

Baking and celebrating with family! My mom used to always play Christmas music and do a big holiday baking day where we would make a bunch of different treats and that way we had something in the house to offer guests who would drop in for a holiday beverage, and some extras to drop off to friends and family. This year I'm hoping to prop the phone up on the counter and do a FaceTime baking session with her. 

Best party trick? 

I'm really great at a home pour and I can make up a dance routine, on the spot, in the moment to ANY Robyn song. It's a real treat for party guests. You don't have to dig too deep to find video evidence. 

What’s the most memorable gift you’ve ever gotten?

Polly Pocket Starlight Castle Palace. My parents looked EVERYWHERE for it and it was the only thing I asked for on my list that year. My mom spent every lunch break going to the toy store to check if they received it and unfortunately it didn't come in on time for Christmas day but she found it a few days after. Luckily my birthday is 3 weeks after Christmas so it was a perfect surprise.

Brag about yourself, what’s something you’re proud of accomplishing this year? 

Survival! This year has been one of the most trying years of our lifetime and everyone should stop and give themselves a big pat on the back for getting through it. I have successfully become a puzzle master, a possible contestant for The Great Quarantine bakeoff and I re-learnt how to cross-stitch!   
Thanks Liz! And be sure to check out our IGTV where Liz teaches us how to dress up our Lounge Collection
