The Christmas Tag

Tag c/o Makeup Pixi3

What's your favourite thing about Christmas?
All of it!! It's my absolute favourite time of year. Love the late night shopping, the Christmas films, parties and nights out, shop window displays, twinkly lights, how happy everyone becomes, mad cosy Christmas jumpers, all of it! Mostly though I love spending time with my family. We all get together on Christmas Eve for a pyjama party, get cosy all twelve of us squashed into someone's lounge drinking and watching Elf. Same every year and it never disappoints.

What's your favourite makeup look for the festive season?
Glitter! As much as a can cram on my face usually. With a matte red lip.

Real tree or fake tree?
Fake every time. It infuriates me putting the damn thing up as it is but to add excessive needle drop to that, no thanks. I'd rather get it done and put my feet up with a hot chocolate.

Giving presents or receiving presents?
Giving! I love shopping for other people and that oh so rare moment when you know they will really appreciate what you've bought. (Always keep the receipts though, just in case.)

Do you open your presents Christmas morning or evening?
Always in the morning. Did it in the evening once and the entire family agreed it was too weird and to never do it again. Love how families have their own specific traditions with Christmas.

Handmade cards or bought?
Bought. Frankly I can't be bothered and I like buying charity ones anyway.

What's your favourite Christmas film?
I simply cannot narrow this down to one. Mr and I watch the same films in the few weekends leading up to Christmas every year. I would have to say top three would be Love Actually, Home Alone 2 (literally has me crying with laughter!) and Muppet's Christmas Carol.  We watched the Gavin and Stacey Christmas special the other day, not a film I know but still brilliant.

What's your favourite Christmas food?
Christmas pud is a huge favourite in our house. Personally I like anything that can be mulled particularly cider. And Baileys! Only time of the year I have it and will put it with anything I can think of.
