To kick of #blogmas I thought it would be appropriate to begin with the Christmas Tag!

1. What is your favourite thing about Christmas?
Christmas is my favourite time of the year, I love everything about it. The festive atmosphere created by the twinkling lights, mince pies, advent calendars, frosty mornings, busy crowds shopping for gifts, Christmas films, seeing people appreciate & love the presents you've bought them, I could go on & on, it is honestly the most wonderful time of the year...

2. What is your favourite makeup look for the festive season?
I've been wearing my Topshop Beguiled lipstick non stop recently, it's a perfect wine colour & fits in with the seasonal shades. I'll be wearing it a lot more over Christmas & New Year, along with smokey eye makeup!

3. Real or fake tree?
Real trees are my favourite, but we have fake ones as it's cheaper in the long run & tidier because they don't drop needles all over the floor! I think though when we get our own place we will have two trees, a fake one & a real one because the smell of a real tree is just so festive!
4. Giving or receiving presents?
100% giving presents! Picking out gifts I know people want/will love is something that really makes me happy. Also, wrapping them up all pretty with little bows is something I enjoy way too much! Of course I still love to receive presents too, but there is just something about giving that I will always prefer!

5. Do you open your presents in the morning or evening?
I'm almost 23 & still join in with the family tradition of the early morning excitement rush to get downstairs & see the beautiful display of presents my mum Father Christmas has left for us. Even though I am not a morning person I ALWAYS manage to get up on Christmas day, I think it's more special because I have younger brothers & sisters who still believe in all the magic of Christmas & to be honest, I don't really want to give up in believing just yet either... 

6. Handmade or bought Christmas cards?
Every year I say I will have a go at making my own Christmas & each year I have failed to do so! I really miss being creative but I never seem to have time anymore ): I've bought some cute little cards for friends & then I always buy special individual ones for my Mum, Dad Nana & Grandad, etc & Dom!

7. What is your favourite Christmas film?
Oh my god I have so many! Christmas films are the only kind of film I can watch multiple times without getting bored! A few of my favourites are Elf, Miracle on 34th Street, Home Alone, The Greatest Store in The World, Four Christmases, Jingle All The Way, The Santa Clause. I think Elf is my absolute favourite though, SANTA... I KNOW HIM!

8. What is your favourite Christmas food?
Mince pies, Turkey with Cranberry jelly, Sausage meat stuffing, Pigs in blankets and my Nana always has so much buffet food which is the best!

9. Favourite Christmas gift?
When I was about six I came downstairs on Christmas morning to a little note telling us (my Sister & I) to follow the red ribbon into the Kitchen. My Mum & Dad had bought us one of those electronic Jeeps for Christmas & because it was obviously way too big to wrap they had hidden it to surprise us! I'll never forget that moment when we opened the kitchen door & saw the Jeep with a big red bow on it!

10. What tops your tree?
Growing up it was always an angel & one year it was one that I had made at School. Now I have my own decorations we have a cream star that has heart cut outs, so pretty (:
