With less than a week to go till the big day, I couldn’t feel any more Christmasy if I tried. I have well and truly embraced the Festive Season this year and in all honesty, I’m actually a little bit sad that this time next week it will all be over. The run up to Christmas is my favourite time of the year but it just happens so quickly.
I’ve seen lots of blogs having lots of fun with The Christmas Tag and thought I’d jump on board Santas Sleigh and join in with the fun!
1. What is your favourite Christmas Film?
Elf. I absolutely love this film and I couldn’t even tell you how many times I have watched it over the past few weeks. I’ve watched it that many times that I’ve become one of those annoying people that know all the words and I’m not even ashamed!
2. Have you ever had a White Christmas?
Not recently no, but I do believe that there was a white Christmas years and years ago when I was a toddler- not that I remember it. I would love for a white Christmasy but with this years ridiculously warm temperatures, it’s never going to happen. Maybe next year.
3. Where do you usually spend your Christmas?
At my mums in Devon for the majority of the day and then we head to one of Nicks parents house for the evening. I can’t wait for the day that we have children and we can host Christmas at ours. But unfortunately we currently live over 200 miles away from both are families so it’s back to our parents for another year for us.
4. What is your favourite Christmas Song?
I love any upbeat Christmas song and Smooth Xmas has been on point this year!!
5. Do You Open Any Christmas Presents On Christmas Eve?
Yes, ever since my siblings and I were little our family tradition has always been to open a present on Christmas Eve which is always a new pair of pyjamas. I love all our festive traditions.
6. Can you name all of Santas Reindeer?
Rudolph the red nosed reindeer has a very shiny nose… Donner, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Blitzon, Comet, Cupid. Not sure if that’s all of them or not?!
7. What is your favourite Christmas make-up and nail art look?
My makeup will be pretty similar to always but with an added glitter touch to the eyes for than likely,courteous of Barry M. As for nails I’m feeling red with a glittery gold accent nail, super simple but super festive at the same time.
8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
Unfortunately it’s fake, but I love our tree all the same. It holds so many memories. One day I’ll have my very own real Christmas tree but in the mean time I’m happy with my 6ft faux tree.
9. What is your favourite all time Christmas food/ sweet treat?
Cheeseeeee. My favourite part of Christmas is the cheese. I’m such a cheese monster it’s unreal. OMG now I want cheese!
10. Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
Don’t get me wrong I love receiving a gift or two but I really love spooling my favourite people and I can’t wait to give Nick his presents on Christmas Day.
11. What is at the top of your Christmas Wish List this year?
To be honest I don’t have a list and anything I receive is always appreciated. I really would like a Pug in a Mug tea infuser though (google it) and a ruck sack of some sort.
12. What would be your dream place to visit for the Holiday Season?
New York. So many Christmas Tags have said the same but it’s been a dream of mine for as long as I remember. I wouldn’t want to be away for the big day itself but I’d love to be able to have the opportunity to explore New York in the run up to Christmas. One day hey!
13. Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?
I’m not the best when it comes to present wrapping. I like to try and I buy all the pretty paper, bows and tags so they look presentable. But my wrapping skills definitely require room for improvement. Although Selotape sell the most amazing on hand dispenser which has made life so much easier when it comes to wrapping. I 100% recommend one and they are on offer in Sainsburys at the moment for about £1.50, GO GO GO!
14. Do you make New Years resolutions and do you stick to them?
I don’t really make resolutions. Obviously I want to get fitter and lose weight in 2016, obviously I want to be happy but I don’t stick to anything. The most important thing is, we enjoy ourselves. 2015 has been an amazing year and I want to look back this time next year on 2016 and be able to say the same. Here’s to the next year *cheers*
15. What makes Christmas special for you?
Being with my family and just having a good time. I love all our little family traditions which always make Christmas special. Christmas is for relaxing and letting your hair down, we all work hard all year around so we deserve it.
I hope you enjoyed The Christmas Tag something a little bit different for the blog but fun all the same.
I tag ALL my lovely followers to join in with The Christmas Tag– I love reading about all your family traditions etc.
I hope you’re all enjoying the festive season as much as I am and have an incredible Christmas 🎄🎅☃🎁❄️
