I had planned to write a review today but I came home to see that I'd been tagged by Natalia from Glossy Confidential to do the Christmas TAG. If you haven't checked Natalia out before, please do. Both her blog and YouTube channel are great! With only 12 days 'til Christmas (oh, holy crap) I thought it was the perfect time to do it so here we are.
What's your favourite holiday movie?
I love Christmas but, for some reason, I never really get into Christmas movies. The first two that come to mind are Jingle all the Way and The Grinch. Jingle all the way is a ridiculous movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger in it. I'm not sure if I could count it as a favourite because I could never decide if I even liked it as a kid but it sure was memorable!
What's your favourite Christmas colour?
I wasn't really aware that there were Christmas colours as such. I've always been quite content the good ol' traditional red and green combination, though I do love it when people mix it up. I've seen quite a bit of turquoise around this year and that pleases me. I love turquoise.
Do you open presents Christmas Eve or morning?
Morning. Always morning.
What's your favourite winter fragrance?
I don't keep my fragrances seasonal, nor are we in winter, so this question is a little irrelevant to me. I've been loving Wonderstruck and Wonderstruck Enchanted by Taylor Swift, Honey by Marc Jacobs and Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture.
Favourite Christmas smell?
Probably peppermint. I think I'm one of the only people that doesn't get all reminiscent when smelling warm, spicy scents. When I smell mint, peppermint in particular, it's like taking me to Christmas day though. Oh, I love me a candy cane.
What's your favourite holiday drink?
I honestly don't have one.
Candy cane or gingerbread man?
Candy cane for sure! I hate gingerbread. I love ginger in meals but, in my eyes, ginger has no place in baked goods. I never enjoy it.
Favourite Christmas Song?
I have a couple. As a child I loved The Wiggles' cover of Feliz Navidad. It was just catchy. As for right now? I downloaded two Christmas albums from iTunes this year so I could play them at work and so far I quite like them both. From Kelly Clarkson's Wrapped in Red I really like Winter Dreams. From Taylor Swift's Holiday Collection album I love Silent Night and, well, every other song.*
*I saw her live last night so I'm fan girling a bit - don't mind me
Have you ever made a snowman?
Nope. Never. I've never even seen snow.
What is most important to you about the holidays?
It sounds so cliche but it's definitely the time spent with the family. Being an Aunty is one of the most amazing blessings and being able to spend Christmas with my nephews is amazing. Last weekend I put my sister's Christmas tree up with my brother in law and their son, my nephew, and it was great. Mr 4 had a great time and seeing his joy was enough for all of us.
This Christmas will be exceptionally magical for me. About 10 weeks ago I became an Aunty for the second time and I'll become an Aunty for the third time on Monday, meaning I will have two fresh baby nephews to spend Christmas with this year.
I'm not as hardcore as some people about Christmas but I do really like this time of year. I love how everyone comes together (eg. My workplace is extremely multicultural and a week or so ago my Muslim colleagues were assisting in putting our Christmas tree up, most of whom had never done so before).
