The Christmas Tag

Hi Guys,

Sorry I'm having a bit of a bleh day, just feeling a little under the weather. So the post that was suppose to go up today I haven't managed to finish, but I'm determined to complete Blogmas. So I thought I would pop up The Christmas Tag, as I do really love a good tag! 
1. What's your favourite thing about this time of the year?

I love it basically because its getting closer to Christmas, its cosy and festive. The perfect excuse to just spend all your time having Lush baths and drinking as much hot chocolate as humanly possible, with teeny weeny marshmallows too! 

2. What's your favourite Winter/Christmas drink?

I am obsessed this year with the Costa Caramel Fudge Hot Chocolate, it is too good for words! It's even stolen my top spot for the White Hot Chocolate that they also do. I really cant stand tea or coffee, so I love a good hot chocolate in the winter. 

3. What is your go to place of clothing during winter?
It's just got to be Topshop, then again I now just shop in Topshop all year round and don't tend to stray from them. Just because they actually do a tall range that fits me, plus they have really gorgeous clothes!

4. What are your top 3 Christmas songs?
They have probably got to be the following three, I'm not so much of a fan of the traditional songs, unless they're covers.
The Pogues & Kirsty MacColl - Fairytale of New York

5. What do you want for Christmas this year?
I have actually had no idea for weeks, I came up with a bit of a what wouldn't I buy myself Wishlist HERE though. It's probably the Magnitone though, I definitely wouldn't buy that for myself usually. 

6. How do you usually celebrate Christmas?
I usually just celebrate it with family, over Christmas dinner and lots of the Christmas special tv shows. I am so excited for Sherlock this year! 

7. Do you have a favourite Christmas movie? Which one? 
I am completely not biased with this one... but I love Eloise at Christmas Time! It is such a funny film and I've grown up with the film and also the original books, its a must see! 

8. What is your favourite Christmas dish? 
I love pigs in blankets, even though its not actually a whole dish haha. Or anything sweet for dessert, does a selection box count as a dish?! 

9. What cosmetics can't you live without during winter?
Illamasqua Hydraveil! My skin is dry all year round and it only gets worse in the winter, so Hydraveil is a savour, my foundation goes on flawlessly with that underneath. It is easily one of my top recombined products from Illamasqua.  

10. Giving or receiving presents? Why?
Of course its nice to receive presents but I do love giving them too, from the shopping to the wrapping. I'm obsessed with wrapping! But just down to treating someone too.

11. What are your favourite Christmas colour?
Does Glitter count as a colour?... If not then I really love a really dark forest green shades this year, or of course my ultimate favourite all year round... Copper! 

12. What is the funniest gift you have received?
Im actually not sure! Last year I got a talking minion, but to be honest I love him and I would happily just have a minion related Christmas every year. 

13. What are your New Year's resolutions?
I have to admit I've not planned that far into advance yet haha, probably just to finally get round to learning to drive! It failed massively this year, there needs to be more time in the day! 

Dont forget that you can still enter into my Nars giveaway for the next few days too!
