I absolutely adore the build up to it, when there are Christmas songs on in all the shops, decorations everywhere and kids lining up to meet Santa, it's just so lovely. I'm really trying to make the most of the build up to Christmas this year as in past years the child in me has just wanted it to be the big day and wished away all the lovely Christmas shopping period! I love going shopping and stopping for hot chocolate, going to see the Christmas lights, just all of it!
My favourite thing about Christmas day itself is definitely being with the people I love the most and giving presents. This year I'll be with my Parents, my sister, my boyfriend and my Grandparents, it's going to be fab!
What's your favorite makeup look for the season?
I don't always do my make up differently for Christmas, but I love to wear a smokey eye or glittery eyeshadow! I don't really wear much if any eyeshadow on a daily basis so it's nice to do it differently for special occasions. I might try to do some Holiday make up looks on here this year so let me know if you're interested in that!
Real tree or fake tree?
I love real trees a lot, they smell so lovely and christmassy but I don't think I'd ever want one, they're just so messy! We have a fake tree I decorate it with my Mum every year, I'll definitely post a picture of it when we've done it! Here's a peek from our tree last year!
Giving presents or receiving presents?
Giving! I love receiving presents, I mean who doesn't, right? ;) But there's nothing quite like seeing someone really pleased with a gift you spent time picking out for them, I love making other people happy.
Do you open your presents Christmas morning or evening?
Morning! We all get ready and wait for any guests to arrive first, then have breakfast (Champagne optional!) and then open presents.
Handmade Christmas cards or bought?
I love handmade cards a lot and as much as I'd love to make them myself I never get the time! I always tell myself I'll do lovely little diy cards and gifts and always run out of time.
What's your favorite Christmas movie?
I love Elf (duh), Four Christmases and Home Alone, but I think The Holiday is my all time favourite. I also love all the Christmas Simpsons episodes!
What's your favorite Christmas food?
I'm not really sure, my Mum does a lovely Christmas dinner but I'm not sure I have a favourite food, I'm kind of boring in that way!
