WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?! (and a Christmas tag!)

Monday, 3 December 2012

... I hear you ask!

I am so sorry for the ridiculous amount of time it has been since I posted on my little corner of the internet!

I was lacking in inspiration so decided to take a little break, and a little break apparently turned into several months! With the Blogger Christmas Party just a week away though, I felt it was only right to get back into the swing of things and I thought I'd do so with a little Christmas tag post :) I got these questions from a tag the lovely Sammi from beautycrush did a couple of years back.

[Me with my gorgeous friends Emma and Maria at a Christmas charity ball a couple of years ago, hanging out with an Irn Bru drinking Snowman!]

1.What's Your Favorite Holiday Movie?

This is a tricky one, because there are lots that I love, but I am a bit of a sucker for Serendipity - I know that technically it's not about Christmas, but it's set at Christmas so I think it counts :P

2. What's Your Favorite Christmas Color?


3. Do You Like To Stay in Your PJs Or Dress Up For Christmas?

Until a couple of years ago I always stayed in my pjs till after we opened presents etc, but now I like to get dressed when I get up, usually in some sort of jumper or casual dress and Christmassy leggings!

4. If You Could Only Buy One Person a Present This Year Who Would It Be?

My mum (sorry dad, brother, grandparents and best friend!), she's the person who always worries about getting presents for everyone else, making Christmas dinner and making it special for the rest of us.

5. Do You Open Your Presents On Christmas Eve Or Christmas Morning?

Christmas morning of course! Santa hasn't been yet on Christmas eve! ;)

6. Have You Ever Built a Ginger Bread House?

No, but I'd love to! Plan for the next few weeks...

7. What Do You Like To Do On Your Christmas Break?

Absolutely nothing but sit around, eat, catch up with friends and watch dvds :)

8. Any Christmas Wishes?

Just that everyone has a fantastic, cheery Christmas and that 2013 will be a better year than 2012 - it's been a bit of a gloomy one!

9. Favorite Christmas Smell?

Oooh I don't know... Christmas dinner cooking maybe?!

10. Favorite Christmas Meal Or Treat?

Traditional Christmas dinner with Turkey, stuffing, roast potatoes etc and any sort of dessert - cheesecake is always a favourite. Quality Street always make me feel Christmassy too though!

11. Which holiday do you celebrate?

Christmas :)

12. What are you doing for the holidays this year?

I'll be at home with my mum, dad, brother and Granny - it's also my Granny's birthday on Christmas day which makes it an even more special day! And depending on work shifts/family commitments, I'll see my best friend on either Christmas Eve or Boxing Day.

13. What's your favorite holiday drink?

Hot Chocolate :)

14. Candy cane or Gingerbread men?

Gingerbread men.

15. What's your favorite holiday/Christmas song?

Wizzard - I Wish it Could be Christmas Every Day (which I'm playing as I type this!)

16. What's the weirdest gift you've ever received?

Weird, but also amazing - microwavable slippers! My circulation is a bit iffy in winter and my hands and feet tend to go a bit blue, so my mum and dad got me them for Christmas either last year or the year before!

17. Have you ever made a snowman?

Lots of times! My mum, dad, brother and I made one in Aviemore when Ross and I were maybe 8 and 10 which we were particularly proud of!

18. What is your favorite winter fragrance?

It's not really a winter fragrance, but I got this perfume for Christmas and I still love it - the original Gwen Stefani Harajuku Lovers perfume in Baby.

19. What is at the top of your list this Christmas? (or whichever holiday you celebrate!)

As simple a request as this is, it's the season 3 dvd boxset of The Vampire Diaries, I haven't seen season 3 yet and I'm currently rewatching the first two, I forgot how addictive it is.

20. What is most important to you about the holidays?

Spending time with my family and just chilling out at home. It's that one day a year that feels totally removed from any other sort of day, so it's just nice to spend it hanging out with the people you love. And eating EVERYTHING in sight :P

I tag you all to answer these Christmassy questions over the next few weeks :) and I'll be sure to post more regularly again from now on!
