I saw this Christmas tag on A Yellow Brick Blog and just couldn't resist. Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year, I love everything about the festivities! The parties, the lights, the music, the food, the cosy nights in watching xmas films...
1. What is your favourite Christmas song?
The Pogue's Fairytale of New York! "You scumbag, you maggot, you cheap lousy faggot..." It's a bit depressing really but I love the way everyone gets excited and joins in, particularly on that line ;)
2. Which is your favourite festive drink?
Bailey's! I actually love Baileys but for some reason only take it out at this time of year. Gordon and I have a tradition of opening 1 small present on Christmas eve with a glass of Baileys and ice in hand.
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas film?
Eh where do I start?! Elf (Buddy the elf, what's your favourite colour?), Jack Frost, Love Actually, Home Alone 1-3 (Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal!), The Santa Clause, Bad Santa (Thurman Merman?!), Fred Claus... ok, I'll stop...
4. What is at the top of your Christmas wish-list this year?
I don't know to be honest. The only thing I've asked for is spending money for NY and a winter candle from The White Company. In an ideal world I'd have these beautiful Mulberry Dorset boots, but I'd settle for a Topshop jumpsuit, Boohoo tartan skirt or some new reading material.
5. What is your favourite festive makeup or nail art look?
My make-up never really changes (#sorrynotsorry) but I love glittery nails for Christmas! These red rockstar nails are ideal.
6. What is your favourite outfit at Christmas time? (LBD? Christmas jumper? PJ's?)
Anything cosy with fur, feathers and/or sequins! I'm also a massive believer in tights at this time of year; coloured ones, patterened ones, Primark's super cosy fleece lined ones... The tartan Jonathan Aston pair I wore on Christmas day a couple of years ago are a definite favourite!
7. Would you rather play out in the snow or enjoy it from inside with the fire and a cuppa?
Harley loves playing in snow! I'd say a little play in the snow with the pups, followed by heating up in cosy PJs and fluffy slippers.
8. Wrapping presents - love or loathe?
Love, love, love! Usually with festive tunes on in the background. Although I do have to apologise to everybody for my terrible wrapping skills.
9. What is your favourite Christmassy food?
Christmas dinner is my favourite meal of the whole year! But if I had to pick certain parts it has to be cranberry jelly and roast tatties! Party in my mouth!
10. What is your favourite thing about Christmas?
It's far too hard to pick! I'm going to be cheesy and say spending time with all my friends and family enjoying the festive cheer :)
