The Jolly Blogger Award

The first of the Christmas Tags has begun and a big thank you to Yari for my nomination in this, The Jolly Blogger Award! Check out her answers here and see the 10 people I have nominated below!






1. Do you open your gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
Always Christmas Day. As a child it was the first thing we'd do upon waking up but as I've gotten older we have a lie in, some breakfast and then get round to opening any presents there may be. Of course Baker gets to go first!

2. Favorite Christmas Song?  
Carol of the Bells. Hands down. It's actually strangely enough my favorite song of all time. I literally listen to it all through the year and it bugs Jake so much. It just makes me feel so good. I'm not a fan of many other Christmas song. I also did a post a couple years back of other songs that I like for this season. 




3. Favorite Christmas/holiday Movie? 
I love Elf, The Santa Clause and Home Alone the most. You can see more in this post too ;) 

4. Favorite Christmas decoration?
This year I got a new wall decoration that is kind of like a chalk board type of thing but it's not a chalk board... I'm soo good at explaining things! You'll see it in my decor post later this month. It has all the reindeer's names on and I really like that. 

5. Favorite Christmas Food?
Does chocolate count? haha I don't like anything like mince pies, Christmas cake or trifle etc, so just chocolate.

6. Favorite Holiday/winter drink? 
Juice. All I drink is cranberry, orange or diluted juice. Like out of everything, all year long. Maybe the very odd hot chocolate. 

7. Snow or no snow?
No snow. As nice as it can be in photos it's really not practical. It gets mushy after a few steps on it and if you live somewhere like me it can even cause all the transport to be cancelled. 

8. Do you send out cards or no cards? 
A few yes. To special friends and a couple family members but they're almost always charity cards bought from the likes of PSDA etc :)

9. Do you secretly still believe in Santa Clause?
'Seeing isn't believing, believing is seeing.'

10. Your favorite winter clothing item? 
Everything in my wardrobe on at once. Right now I have on 2 pairs of socks, a pair of leggings, jeans, 2 vests, a long sleeve tee, a hoodie, slippers and a dressing gown! Cold tattie me. 

11. One beauty product that you cannot be without this winter? 
I should probably answer this with my Lush Imperialis Moisturizer...but I suck at keeping a good routine and get lazy.

12. Best Christmas Memory?
Probably just any year with my Granda. It hasn't been the same since we lost him and I miss him with no teeth trying to chew his beef, moaning at Nana wanting to watch the Queens speech and falling asleep straight afterwards.



I'm not the most Christmassy of people and am so far from Buddy the Elf status, however it takes all sorts and this is what I think :) Now for the people I tag....

  1. I thought I hadn't heard The Carol of the Bells before but when I pressed play I instantly recognised it! It's in one of the Harry Potter films, I'm sure! I am also always cold, and bundle up in so many layers. Thanks for tagging me, I guess you'll see the rest of my answers when I do it hehe ;)
