Happy December Holiday everyone!!! In light of this wonderfully festive season I've decided to post my answers to the Christmas tag. I figured since Christmas is one of my favourite holidays this would be the perfect addition to my blog. So, without further adieu here are my answers and please feel free to leave yours as a comment below! I want to tag @mooseinthehuuse! Happy holidays.
Q1: What's your favourite holiday movie? My all time favourite festive movie has got to be 'White Christmas'. It's a musical romcom based slightly on the Holiday Inn and it's pure perfection! Anything with Bing Crosby in is going to be fabulous but this movie is something so special. Great music, cast, costume, plot, singing, acting, you name it!!!
Q2: What's your favourite Christmas colour? I adore burgundy and dark reds! Border-lining on dark purple. Our living room back in Birmingham is a dark red so that colour always reminds me of opening presents in the morning and of when we sit by the fire and drink hot chocolate, watching Christmas movies. It's also such a flattering colour, I think anyone can wear it and look stunning. And it's the colour of mulled wine, what could be better! Below is a picture of Princess Kate Middleton.
Q3: Do you like to stay in PJ's for Christmas or dress up? Definitely PJ's!!! Unless we go out or have guests, but that's rare on Christmas day. We usually spend the day together in PJ's as a family.
Q4: If you could only buy one person a present this year, who would it be? If I could only afford to buy one person a present, I couldn't buy for one member of my family and not the other as I love them all equally... so I would put lots of things in a shoebox and give my gift to the shoebox foundation. There are quite a few organizations that allow you to give a shoebox filled with gifts to either children, young adults, families, elderly, etc. They have lists for you to choose from and everything in the shoebox is given to someone in need. Someone who might not get another present this year, so it's well worth doing! A few of these charities include the Benjamin Foundation, Linktohope and samaritans-purse. Please check them out and donate if possible! Make someone's Christmas extra special.
Q5. Do you open your Christmas presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning? Christmas Morning all the way. Sometimes my mom will get us a small present to open on Christmas Eve, but we open all the presents on Christmas morning.
Q6. Have you ever built a gingerbread house? Yes, but I don't like the taste of gingerbread at all, unless it's in a latte.
Q7. What do you like to do on your Christmas Break?
Normally I like to just relax with my family and visit the German Market in Birmingham. I love to drink lots and lots of hot chocolate, watch all the bad movies on the Christmas movie channel and all the Classics on Box Office, wrap up warm and read loads of books. Get all my presents wrapped and labelled, see a Pantomime and just chill out. Holidays were made for relaxing!
Q8. Any christmas wishes? I already have everything I could ever wish for!
Q9. Favourite christmas scent? Snow Fairy from LUSH!!! It's the best body wash ever and I always try to stock up on it over Christmas and make it last throughout the year so I'm never without it. You can also get an exclusive perfume of the Snow Fairy scent from the LUSH site which is £25, but I believe it's only available throughout the Christmas period.
Q10. Favourite Christmas meal or treat? Chocolate coins and those tubes of sweets!!!
Q11. What are you doing for the holidays this year? I'm going to get picked up from my University in London by my mom and my sister and we're going to head back to Birmingham and visit lots of festive places and watch tons of films. We made a massive list of things that we're going to do as a family this Christmas, since I'm coming home - including board games and baking cookies!!!
Q12. Favourite holiday drink?
Bailey's Hot Chocolate!!!
Q13. Candy Cane or Gingerbread Man?
Candy cane all the way!
Q14. Favourite Christmas song?
I know I talked about Ariana Grande in one of my previous posts, but I just love her at the moment! My favourite Christmas song this year is 'Santa Tell Me' by Ariana Grande. I've posted a video link to the song at the bottom of this post so you can have a listen and tell me it's not the catchiest tune ever!
Q15. Weirdest gift?
Thankfully I've never really had any super strange or weird gifts. I'm just extremely grateful if someone gets me something because it's the thought that counts. I like handmade things more than bought because I think time is something that can't be bought and someone has taken the time to lovingly make you something to treasure and keep for always. So to me, handmade gifts - even if it's a card - mean more.
Q16. Ever made a snowman?
BEST PART OF WINTER!!!
Q17. Are you doing a Secret Santa this year?
Q18. Favourite winter fragrance?
Invictus by Paco Rabanne.
Q19. Top of the Christmas list?
A new pair of tap shoes and a big warm hug from everyone back home!
Q20. What is most important to you about Christmas?
Spending time with the people you love the most.
