I swear all I’m blogging about lately is Christmas – I can’t help it, it’s my favourite time of the year! The lovely Jess from Lovely Jubbly tagged me in her Christmas tag, and well it would be rude to not join in!
1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
It’s A Wonderful Life. No idea why it’s my favourite, I remember having to watch it at school and since then I’ve loved it. I always watch it every year, and this year Chris took me to see it at an independent cinema in London for our anniversary. Last Christmas I tried to watch it on Christmas eve with my Grandad, who just kept saying ‘there’s nothing wonderful about life’ the whole way through, ta Grandad.
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning!! At home we all get up and have breakfast together and then open our presents, taking it in turns so that we can all see what we got. It’s a very civilised affair.
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
So many! I think last Christmas was my favourite, as I spent it with my parents, brother, grandparents, and my other half. Our house was full and I just got to spend the whole day with my grandparents, who I don’t get to see a lot. There was nothing big going on, but it was just lovely to spend time with my family at Christmas.
4. Favourite festive food?
Sausages wrapped in bacon! I’m completely addicted to these, and we always make mum make them every year! I’m not spending Christmas with my parents this year, but I hope there’s still sausages wrapped in bacon for my Christmas dinner!
5. Favourite Christmas gift?
What ever? Hmm.. I don’t think I can name just one. A couple of years a go my parents bought me a Kindle, which I still love. And I remember as a child I always seemed to get some amazing toys, it’s hard to choose, I don’t think I can name just one.
6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Gingerbread! I love gingerbread. Last year I made a ridiculous gingerbread house and I could just smell it for days.
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Yes. Every year my dad insisits we sit with him on Chistmas eve and he reads us The Night Before Christmas. It was probably cute when we were children, but we’re both now in our early 20’s… Although this year I won’t be there so maybe I’ll escape!
8. What tops your tree?
Some light up star thing.
9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I don’t think I’ve ever asked for any crazy gifts when I was a child, not that I can remember anyway. I always joke I want another cat, but sadly I don’t think I’ll be getting one.
10. What’s the best part about Christmas for you?
As cheesy as it sounds, spending it with family. I don’t have a big family, and this year especially we’ve gone through a hell of a lot. I just love spending time with family, and seeing their faces when I give them presents. This year is the first Christmas I’m spending without my parents, but I’m really looking forward to spending it with Chris’s, especially as he hardly gets to see them since he’s moved down south.
If you’ve been following my blog closely over the past few months, you may have noticed many Origins products have been getting a mention recently. After years of struggling with terrible skin I decided to stop trying to find a high street product that will save me, and decided to delve into the world of high…
I decided to give a go at nail art! This is the first time I’ve tried it out and I’m surprised at how easy it was to do. Here’s what I did to create my strawberry nails: I used Models Own Red Alert, and Barry M’s Mint Green, and Black to create my nails…
Hi there girlies! As many of you know I am a self confessed nail varnish addict. I love the stuff, I now have 56 bottles in my collection so I’m just ever so slightly addicted. Well lately I’ve started a job where I can’t wear nail varnish – absolute horror for someone who’s addicted….
I don’t usually do these types of posts, mostly because I have so many products that I hardly use them up on a monthly basis. But as I’m doing my spending ban I’m trying to use up as many products as I can to make room for new ones save some money. February was a good month for using us products…
I’ve got really into doing ‘NOTD’ posts recently on the blog. They used to be something I’d post up if I couldn’t think of anything else to do on the blog, or if I wanted to quickly blog. But recently I’ve got more into looking after my nails recently, making sure my nails are in…
[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text] A while a go Danni posted on her blog about the chance to join in with her Nail Art Weekly Project and of course I jumped at the chance to join in. I love playing with nail varnish, and although I’m not that great with nail art, I thought it would be a fun…
