Christmas tag



I decided to do this tag after reading it on Jasmine's blog. I'm usually a huge grinch so I'm not sure how interesting this post will be :p

What's Your Favourite Thing About Christmas?
I guess I should talk about Christmas in Australia first, because Christmas in the northern hemisphere is a whole other world! 
I like presents! I like buying presents for people and finding the perfect thing for them (and I love the excuse to go shopping, but I don't like the Christmas crowds!), and of course I love receiving presents. I love the food (more on that later) and now that I'm old enough, the excuse to drink before midday!
I did spend one Christmas in the UK though, which was really magical. We were lucky to have a year with a lot of snow, with my favourite part being the German Christmas markets in Edinburgh.



What's Your Favourite Make Up Look For The Christmas Season? 
Because I'm the grinch, I think doing your make up to look Christmasy is a bit tacky, and I'd prefer to do my make up for the season (summer) instead. I'm loving bright coral and pink lipsticks. However, I have been using Christmasy colours on my nails.

 Real tree or fake tree?

Real!! My family have always had a real living tree, and it lives outside most of the year. They are a bit hard to take care of in Australia because of the summer heat, but I think it's worth it. We are also probably the worst at decorating it, but I prefer having a bunch of multicoloured sentimental ornaments on it than it looking perfect and colour co ordinated. I did buy a small fake pink tree from work this year though, because it was pink.


Giving presents or receiving presents?
Both!

Do you open your presents Christmas Morning or Evening?
Morning! As if I could ever wait till the evening to open them, haha. Although now my sister and I are getting older, it's almost afternoon by the time we get out of bed on Christmas. I do have to wait till the evening to open presents from my boyfriends family though.

Handmade Christmas Cards or Bought?
I really don't have an ounce of creativity so I just buy my cards. I do like to get nice ones though.

What's your all time Favourite Christmas movie?
Love Actually.

Whats your Favourite Christmas Food? 
 I don't like roasts, so I'm not a fan of traditional Christmas foods. I love seafood on Christmas! Especially prawns and baby octopus salad. We also eat potato salad and bean salad. Last year mum made the nicest duck ballotine that had a pork and cherry stuffing, but she managed to lose the recipe for it.

    1. That's awesome! I've also seen pictures of people turning their whole tree into a Dalek and it looks wicked.
