It's Christmas! (Tag)

I have really been getting into the Christmas spirit this week - the tree is up, most of my presents are bought and I've even started to wrap some of them!

So I thought it would be fun to answer a few Christmassy tag questions, and saw these on Jennie's blog.


What is your favourite Christmas film?

Love Actually, no question about it. I know a lot of people would say one from their childhood, and of course there are lots that I like, but Love Actually just gives me the warm and fuzzies no matter how many times I watch it which is usually at least twice each Christmas time. 

What is your favourite Christmas colour?

Red and gold I'd say. Classic but oh so festive.

Do you open your gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?

Christmas morning! I don't understand this business of opening them the night before, it seems a more American thing to me but correct me if I'm wrong. I love the excitement of getting up in the morning knowing you've got your presents to open and, more excitingly in a lot of cases, presents to give!

What is your favourite winter fragrance?

I tend to wear the same fragrances all year round, as I much prefer sweeter scents to the heavier musty scents often associated with winter. At the moment I am mainly wearing Taylor Swift's Enchanted Wonderstruck perfume, which is actually quite a good wintery perfume as it more a warm sweet scent with quite strong vanilla notes. I love it!

What is your favourite Christmas scent?

This is something I hadn't given much thought to before, but I suppose it would be the traditional spice smell (cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg) which tend to be added to everything at this time of year. It just smells like Christmas! 

What is your favourite festive drink?

I'm not really one for hot drinks, so the Starbucks specials etc. tend to pass me by, but I do make an exception for mulled wine (and cider, which I tried last year).

Candy canes or gingerbread men?

Not actually a massive fan of either of these to be honest! Cute as decorations though. Give me a chocolate yule log anyday!

What is your favourite Christmas song?


This song just brings me back to being a little girl running around the Christmas tree getting so excited! Just a lovely cheery song :)

Have you ever made a snowman?

Yes! I live in Scotland and I've seen a fair few White Christmasses.


(Little me on the right!)

What is the most important thing to you about Christmas?

The chance to spend lots of time with family and friends, and remember what's important! And, um, the food.

I TAG YOU! 

Looking forward to hearing about how you celebrate Christmas.

    1. I have a confession...I have never seen Elf all the way through! I always assumed I wouldn't like it because I'm not a fan of a lot of Will Ferrel's films, but after seeing so many clips etc. that looked good I actually started watching it the other day and enjoyed it so far! Just need to watch the remaining half now xx
