#bigblogmasproject day 3
I decided to do this lovely Christmas TAG today as I don't want to (nor do I plan to) do 24 days of reviews as I'm sure you would all get very bored of that. I got this lovely tag from another blogger who is also doing the #bigblogmasproject. I would love for you to take a look at her blog here.
I would also really like you to comment on this post with any Christmassy posts you would like to see on the run up til Christmas!
1. Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
When I was very, very little I remember having a real tree but that must have been about 16 years ago! Ever since we started owning dogs as pets we switch to synthetic because of the needles and it just generally being safer for the dogs. I love the smell of a real tree but a good old Yankee candle fixes that!
2. You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick?
I will most likely be in Starbucks and get my usual - a skinny caramel mac! In the summer I usual get the iced version and as the days get colder I go for the hot one. I'm not a fan of the Christmas drinks at Starbucks and I don't really like hot chocolate either. I really want to try an Eggnog latte though!
3. Whats your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
I like red and gold. They're classic Christmas colours that never get old!
4. Giving or receiving?
I love giving presents but anyone that says they don't enjoy receiving present is telling a lie! I find it really hard to buy presents while being a student and I have a fairly tight budget but I do the best I can and love exchanging the gifts!
5. To mince pie or not to?
I used to really love mince pies and now I really hate them! I have no idea why. I probably ate too many one year. I would really like to start liking them again though because they're a classic Christmas treat.
6. What's your traditional Sunday lunch?
Being vegetarian my Sunday lunch doesn't contain the traditional meats but I normally substitute them with a nut roast (I love nut roast) or a variety of Quorn roast. Christmas day naturally calls for both though! I then have the usual veg, stuffing and a couple of potatoes as I'm not a huge fan of them. I do love the traditional trimmings like roast parsnips. Yum!
7. Christmas day fashion
This changes each year. Some years I just feel lazy and go for lazy clothes, basic hair and makeup. Others I dress up a little more. This year I would like to wear a pretty dress, do my hair and full makeup. Of course this is an excuse for dress shopping!
8. What's your favourite Christmas song?
I'm not really a fan of Christmas music because I find it a little cheesy (unpopular opinion, I know!). I can't really pinpoint a favourite song because of this but hearing any Christmas music puts me in the festive spirit.
9. What's your favourite Christmas film?
Oh there's sooo many! ELF has to be top of my list though, I watch it every Christmas without fail. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory are always on my list of must watch films at Christmas too.
10. Open presents before or after lunch?
Presents off immediate family are always opened before Lunch but any others generally depend on the plan for the day. There is normally a few left to open after lunch off various people.
I TAG all the lovely bloggers taking part in the #bigblogmasproject to take part in this tag!
