Whoop whoop! Less than two weeks till Christmas, who is excited? I am literally counting the days and I am constantly looking for some fun festive activities to do. These past two days I went ice skating and finally started my Christmas shopping. Better late then never, right haha! Speaking of Christmas activities, doing a Christmas Tag is in order. I was tagged by the sweet Alex and Bethan to do two and I have also seen some other ones floating around and I figured I’d make a little mixture between all of them, so that it’s a bit more different and unique. I hope you’ll enjoy! <3
What is your favorite Christmas movie?
I don’t have that many to be honest. I just have a few that I watch over and over again before Christmas, every single year. My all time favorite ones though, have to be Home Alone and Home Alone 2. They are so funny and festive and always put me in the mood. Apart from them, I really like Love Actually, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Elf.
What’s your favorite Christmas color?
When it comes to home decor, I play it traditional and go for red, green, gold and silver. For the Christmas tree though, I love just gold! Gold ornaments, gold lights, gold light… everything. This year however, I decided that I’ll spice the things up a little bit and the theme will be rose gold. I’m so excited to see how it will turn out! When it comes to fashion, I opt for red and a little bit of sparkle. Makeup wise – I love me some gold eye shadow and a classic red lip.
Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or on Christmas morning?
Christmas Eve! This lovely family tradition started when my cousins and I were little and we were SO impatient to open our presents that our parents decided to let us have them on Christmas Eve. I love that we all gather together, have dinner, listen to carols and at the end of the evening exchange present. This tradition is something that I wouldn’t trade for the world and this is without a doubt the happiest day of the year for me. <3
What is your favorite Christmas smell / fragrance?
I think most of you will agree on this one, but I just adore the smell of Christmas trees! It pretty much sums up Christmas for me. For candles, I adore my Yankee Candle in Gingerbread. It’s really festive and I love the spicy undertones! Yummy! As far as my favorite fragrance goes, I love Victoria’s Secret Pure Seduction Body Mist and also my Miss Dior Cherie perfume.
Receiving or Giving?
Well I’m not gonna lie – I love receiving present (who doesn’t?) but above all I LOVE giving presents. And not just around Christmas but at any time of the year. There is something so amazing and magical when you give to your loved ones and the ones in need! It is the most amazing feeling and I love seeing the happiness on people’s faces! Plus, taking the time and effort to pick the perfect gift for my friends and family makes me so happy and excited. :)
Christmas Day Fashion?
Christmas Eve is my favorite part of the holidays so I usually take most time dressing up and getting ready for it. Every year I buy a dress specifically for Christmas Eve and it is usually black with some golden sparkle on it. I put my hair up in a bun, wear my high heels and I feel really festive and classy. As for Christmas Day, I keep it super casual and just hang around with my festive Victoria’s Secret PJs and my fuzzy socks all morning haha.
What is your favorite Christmas song?
Ohh I have tons but if I have to name one that would be Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas Is You. It’s a tradition of mine when 1st December hits the calendar, I play it on repeat and it basically screams Christmas to me. I also really enjoy Wham! – Last Christmas, Let It Snow and Jingle Bells (shocking choice, I know!).
What is your favorite holiday drink?
Muled wine and eggnog! Mulled wine and eggnog! I adore them both, they are SO yummy and literally create a Christmas party in my mouth. Before making the wrong conclusions, don’t worry I have a non-alcoholic option for you as well haha – I really love getting Starbucks Gingerbread Latte and sprinkling it with cinnamon on top. It’s delicious!
Candy cane or Gingerbread men?
Can I have both, please? These two along with my favorite Christmas cookies are my favorite Christmas treats and I love them so much. If I have to choose between the two though, I’d go for the gingerbread men because it’s less sweet and tastes somewhat more Christmassy.
What is most important to you about the holidays?
As cheesy as it may sound, spending quality time with my friends and family! I love them all so much and I really cherish the time we spend together during the holidays! <3 Apart from that, I love the hope and happiness Christmas gives to people. I love the yummy food and the delicious spiced drinks. I love decorating the house and listening to Christmas carols. I love searching for the perfect present for my loved ones. I love pretty much everything that has to do with Christmas; it really is the most wonderful time of the year! <3
