  When do you start getting excited about Christmas?
Around early December time. The pre winter sales start and I like to do shopping in advance.

What's Your Favourite Christmas Colour?
Red! So festive and cosy!

What's Your Favourite Holiday Film? 
I saw 'Elf' for the first time a week ago 'and didn't like it! I know, there must be something wrong with me! I like the festive ballets and concerts that are shown on TV like The Nutcracker.
I do like The Holiday, Love Actually and Bridget Jones though, do they count? 

Do you have any Christmas traditions?
 As a family, we don't have any! We always have mulled wine after a carol service on Christmas Eve. We don't do stockings but we open our presents together around 11 on Christmas Day and then entertain our guests with music and jokes. I try to watch the Queen's speech, but always miss it, does that count? haha :)

Which are your favourite Christmas songs?
There are so loads! 'O Holy Night' the Mariah Carey version,  'Fairytale of New York' by The Pogues and 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, either the Michael Buble one or the Judy Garland one!

Do You Like To Stay in Your PJs Or Dress Up For Christmas?
I always dress up on Christmas! Sometimes it's just a jumper and leggings, but I do try to look presentable. I just stay in my PJs on Boxing Day

If You Could Only Buy One Person a Present This Year Who Would It Be?
My Dad! 

What Do You Like To Do On Your Winter/Christmas Break?

Before Christmas I like to take it easy and relax. For the past couple of years, I take this time to revise for January exams, but this year, I only have two so I'll revise after the holidays. I used to watch films, but I get too tired and end up wondering off and doing something else! Shopping, eating and going to London plays a bit part of this festive time as I love do do all those three things.  

Favourite Christmas Smell?
The smell of mulled wine, hot cider and cinnamon is just too good. I'm off to buy my scented candles today.

What’s your favourite make-up look for the festive season?
I'm still not a make-up person! At the moment, I wear L'Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black mascara and Pink Bubbly Vaseline. That's it! I did buy a few berry coloured bits and bobs (like the new red Kate Moss Rimmel lippy) as I think that will look nice.
Giving presents or receiving presents?
GIVING! I love to spend all my money on other people around this time. This is because I see the smile on their face at the end, which is priceless. I like receiving gifts of course, but it's not as special as giving!

Handmade Christmas cards or bought?
I'm way too lazy to make handmade cards any more. Bought one's all the way!

What’s your favourite Christmas food?

I honestly think I can live off turkey, stuffing, Yorkshire pudding and gravy. I have no time for vegetables at 
If you are a blogger and have not done this, then I tag YOU! Merry Christmas!!
