As there’s officially only just over 3 weeks left until Christmas (eeee!), I thought I would do the Christmas tag on my blog today. I can’t believe we still haven’t got the Christmas tree up in our house yet, although I’m sure that’ll be changing over the weekend!
1. What’s your
favourite thing about this time of the year?
I absolutely love the build up to Christmas! For me, it all starts when Lush release their Christmas range in October, and talk of the current years’ beauty advent calendars starts appearing all over Twitter. I love when all the Christmas drinks come out in Starbucks and Costa, and I really enjoy doing proper Christmas shopping – that means not online! I really enjoy the experience of actually going to the shops and hearing all the Christmas songs play while you’re out looking for the perfect gift for your friends and family.
2. What’s your
favourite Winter/Christmas drink?
My favourite Christmas drink this year is the Caramel Hot Fudge Hot Chocolate from Costa. However, I really want to try the Gingerbread Latte from Starbucks – I think it’s about time I did!
3. What is your go to
place of clothing during winter?
I love Primark for all the Christmas jumpers and seasonal items and Topshop for party outfits!
4. What are your top 3
1. Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) – Michael Buble
2. Driving Home For Christmas – Chris Rea
3. Do They Know It’s Christmas – Band Aid
5. What do you want
for Christmas this year?
I’d love a good camera so that I can improve the quality of my blog photos and YouTube videos.
6. How do you usually
I usually celebrate Christmas with my family – eating yummy food, enjoying each other’s company and exchanging presents!
7. Do you have a
favourite Christmas movie? Which one?
Love Actually is my favourite Christmas film, and I also really love the Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special – I watch it every year at Christmas!
8. What is your
favourite Christmas dish?
A proper Christmas roast including turkey and all the trimmings!
9. What cosmetics
can’t you live without during winter?
My skin gets quite dry so I always reach for a good moisturiser during the winter months. I also love using the Soap and Glory Smoothie Star range at this time of year – it’s so comforting!
10. Giving or receiving
I love both giving and receiving presents! I love picking out gifts that I know the other person will really like, then watching them unwrap it. However, I also really enjoy unwrapping my pressies!
11. What are your
favourite Christmas colour?
A classic red and green! It doesn’t get more festive, does it!?
12. What is the
funniest gift you have received?
I’ve had a few funny presents in the past, however the one I remember the most happened when I was around 10. I unwrapped my pressie from my parents only to find a cardboard box with ‘vests and socks’ written on it. This was obviously a joke but I remember feeling so disappointed at first as I actually believed it – until I opened the box to find a radio, which I really wanted at the time.
13. What are your New
I don’t really ever set proper New Year’s resolutions, however I’ve set some blogging and YouTube goals for next year which I really hope to achieve!
