The Christmas TAG


I saw this on a few blogs and thought I would give it a go…..You can find the original at Makeup-Pixi3

Q.   What’s your favourite thing about Christmas?
I don’t think I could pick one thing…It’s a collection of things which make up the great Christmas feeling…The tree, the drama of shopping, the food, the opening presents & days off work:)
Q.   What’s your favourite makeup look for the festive season?
A bit more sparkly than usual – glitter & gold!
Q.   Real tree or fake tree?
I would love a real one but don’t think I could cope with the mess, so it’s a fake one for us!
Q.   Giving presents or receiving presents?
Giving, I love the buying and wrapping the presents up then seeing the H & DH ‘s face when they open they presents:)
Q.  Do you open your presents Christmas morning or evening?
Morning, the joy of having a toddler. Do people actually wait till the evening to open presents?
Q.   Handmade Christmas cards or bought?
Brought, working mummy, no time:(
Q.   What’s your favourite Christmas film?
Hard to pick just one….It’s a choice between Elf & It’s a Wonderful Life.

Just one , All I Want For Christmas Is You & Last Christmas

I have so many,  love Christmas dinner. We usually have it for a couple of days re-heated or in sarnie. I also love mince pies & Christmas Cake!!
