The Christmas Tag


So the lovely Dee from Prompts by Dee has tagged me to do this christmas post. I was also tagged by Katie of Plus+ BeautyΒ to do a jolly blogger award so i thought i best not let these lovely girls down! You should definitely check out their blogs as they are amazing & both these girls are darlings!

I’ve decided to take some of the christmas questions from both to make it fair! πŸ˜€

-What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?

Ooo definitely somewhere cold and snowy. Maybe New York. Such wonderful christmas decorations and lights with the added bonus of snow! It wouldn’t be the same somewhere hot! CentreParcs is also a good bet, they have such cute light up deer and it’s a great feeling being away from the cities and crowds! (and work!)

What is your Favourite winter clothing?

Christmas jumper or new cosy pj’s! Christmas and winter isn’t complete without new warm pj’s πŸ™‚

Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

This reminds me of one Christmas where my mum and stepdad just said ‘it’s technically christmas’ when it got to about 2am so we opened all the presents! Oops! Normally, if my mums got me some new pj’s we opened these so we could sleep in them! πŸ˜€

-What is your favourite Christmas drink or food?

Oh so much good food at Christmas! Cinnamon and raisin bagels always remind me of christmas as it’s what we normally eat for breakfast but nothing can beat a christmas dinner with EVERYTHING on there. and apple sauce with everything because i’m Bev and i’m disgusting! To drink, a cup of hot tea is the must have but a snowball is my alcohol of choice (closely followed by baileys – p.s if you don’t know what a snowball is – google it!)

-Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?

always failed at this. failed last year, already failed this year. My mother wrapped presents better than i ever could when she had her arm in a sling because of a broken collar bone. She’s great! One day i hope i can be as good as her!

What is your favourite Winter Makeup look?

Just the usual, good foundation based with lots of mascara and lip balm so my lips don’t look cracked! The cold air sorts my cheeks out with colour and voila! πŸ™‚

What is on your Christmas wish list?

Oooo, not a lot this year, i seem to have everything i want/need. Some lush stuff wouldn’t go a miss. But i’ll be happy with anything! I like buying presents for others really!

So, there you go! A few questions from both posts! Feel free to steal them and answer yourself!

Merry Christmas!


Treat Yo’ Self: Saturday

christmas jumper

The last Saturday in November wouldn’t be complete without a little pre christmas Treat Yo’ Self. I’ve said before, if you don’t watch Parks & Rec, get out. πŸ™‚

I picked up my christmas jumper above from Next for Β£30.00, after trawling through New Look, River Island, H&M. There was nothing christmassy in these shops! I found a jumper covered in penguins in New Look but it wasn’t christmassy enough for me! I knew Next wouldn’t let me down, they had a whole section dedicated to Christmas jumpers!

primark boots primark shoes

Next, i ventured to Primark as i needed some flat boots so my feet stay dry in Winter. I have some mini wellies but these are not always appropriate! I found the little black boots for Β£12.00 in Primark. They are so pretty and not too in your face with buckles which i hate. These will be perfect with a dress and tights!

I also found these pretty ballerina shoes for when i know i won’t be stepping foot outside! These will definitely be my christmas day shoes! These were Β£5.00 from Primark and are a lovely neutral colour.

clinique liquid soap

Then, i went into Boots as i needed to see if my online purchase was ready to collect (more on that soon!) but it wasn’t so i decided i’d pick up some more Liquid Soap as i knew i was nearly out of it and i was there anyway, you know how it goes. Well, lucky me because this should have been Β£17.00 but i got it for Β£14.00 as there was a discount.

Now, no more spending on myself! I only have a couple of christmas presents to buy and i’m done!

Then, more saving for Neeew Yooooork!
