The Christmas Tag

I was tagged by the lovely Elly Mitchell (read her blog here) to do the Christmas tag! I’ve never actually done a tag on the blog before so I’m excited to give a whirl. I’m getting so excited for Christmas and I’ve nearly bought all my presents. If you want some ideas for gifts check out my Christmas gift guides! So let’s get onto the questions.


What is your favourite Christmas film? Okay, I’m going to be really original and say either The Holiday or Love Actually. I wish I could say something cool but I don’t really know any, to get in the Christmas mood I’d much rather watch a Christmas special of Glee or Gavin & Stacey.

What are you favourite Christmas colours? In terms of decorating, I prefer to stick with golds and warm colours. I like red, gold, bronze and black. My tree at home, however, has a bit of everything! I just HATE tacky Christmas stuff, especially tinsel. Eugh, it kinda makes me ill thinking about a tree covered in the stuff.

Do you stay in your PJ’s or get dressed  up for Christmas? I kinda go somewhere in the middle. If we’re staying and eating at home I’ll be in a Christmas onesie but with some nice makeup, glitter n all. If I’m going out I’ll make some effort, maybe a red dress or just a winter jumper with jeans and heels. I’ll definitely need an elastic waistband for the dinner, though….

If you could only buy one person a present this year who would it be? I love this question! It would 100% be my mum (Sorry Jake) because I tend to buy her luxurious things I would love to buy for myself but couldn’t justify buying myself. I love treating her to Jo Malone and posh bath stuff.

Do you open your presents Christmas eve or Christmas morning? Christmas morning! I didn’t know Christmas eve present opening was a thing. I love coming down in the morning and seeing stuff under the tree! We do, however, make Christmas eve boxes for each other in my family- consisting of comfy PJs, Socks, hot chocolate etc!

Have you ever built a gingerbread house? I do not have the patience for that shit. FUN FACT- when I was 8 I went to Oman with my family and we were gifted this amazing gingerbread house. I had a nap, woke up and it was all gone- I didn’t even get a whiff. I still hold a grudge…

What do you like to do on your Christmas break? I just try and watch as many Rupaul episodes as I can and eat a lot of mince pies.

Any Christmas wishes? It is selfish to wish that all the pigs in blankets I eat don’t go straight to my thighs? Apart from that, I obviously wish for happiness and health for my family.

Favourite Christmas smell? I love the classic Christmas candle smell. I love mulled wine, read Christmas trees and even the smell of wrapping paper, is that weird?!

Favourite Christmas meal or treat? I love that meal you have late on Christmas day- a bit of cheese, a bit of meat, some wine, some chocolate… LOVE IT.

I’m going to nominate:

Naomi, Skye, Kez and Tania!

Please comment and let me know if you do this tag.. MERRY CRIMBO.
