The Christmas tag? In the middle of the week?! What could you love more than that! I did plan to post this on Monday but if you’re able to give my past two posts a read you’ll understand why it’s not been posted. I still wanted to do it, though, so did a little rejig.
Do you wear PJs or dress up on Christmas morning?
Haha, you’re trying to confuse me here! The morning starts in PJs and we tend to do good old present opening and morning activities in warm jimjams, but always dress up in the day! Whether that’s dressy or more comfy, indeed I do dress up.
I won’t expose all of my past looks to you as I plan to do a whole other post on that, but here’s an example of a dress up but a bit dressed down look:
If you could only buy a present for one person this year, who would it be?
This is so hard!!! I love gift buying and watching people unwrap gifts so I honestly would be heartbroken if I had to narrow it down.
I am going to give two answers…
If I’m honest, it would probably be my amazing boss, Aida. She cares for me endlessly and make my days full of glitter and rainbows… I owe her the entire world. Also, a few weeks ago I bought her a holographic unicorn horn, and seeing her face light up when it was placed on her head truly made life worthwhile.
The other person I’d love to give a present to would be Jadey. I mean, she’s pretty freaking amazing, and I would love to give her something really creative that I’d put a lot of thought and effort into, and watch her open them!!!
Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
Christmas day, every year.
What do you do on Christmas Eve?
There’s no set one thing we do. As a child, a christmas tradition was always a lush bath… I remember one year, the product I wanted was sold out the whole week run up to Christmas (I only became a lush hoarder about 3 years ago!!!), so when it got to the 23rd, my dad ran all around London (over 6 shops) just to find the specific bubble bar I wanted… I didn’t even know he did it though, I would have settled for another! But when he came home with it I was over the moon!
We did used to spend the time with a group of family friends we called the ‘Gymbos’ (friends through going to the same gymnastics school), but that stopped a few years ago and we’ve all lost touch a little.
Do you prefer Candy Canes or Gingerbread?
Awh man!!! Don’t do this to me!!! I’m going to say… candy cane flavoured gingerbread? Gosh! I don’t know. Candy canes, probably, because most gingerbreads aren’t vegan but it’s easier to find vegan candy canes.
Have you ever built a snowman?
Yes! Many, many, many. Never on Christmas Day, though!
Do you prefer white lights or coloured lights on your tree?
This made me think! I’ve always had coloured lights on Christmas trees and think I do prefer them, but I love white lights for general decor? I love fairy lights and have some beautiful rose gold ones in my bedroom.
What is your favourite Christmas scent?
Christmas scents are my favourite kind of scents!!! I have so many. I currently have an orange and cranberry Christmas spice diffuser in my room, but I’m also going to give this a Lush twist. My favourite Lush scents are:
-Man in the moon bubble bar (Calacas scented)
-Christmas sweater (sort of a spicy cinnamon scent)
-Plum snow (plum rain)
What tops the tree at your house?
It’s always been a snowy white and silver Winnie the Pooh angel! For as long as I can remember, and it’s so beautiful. It holds many amazing memories in my heart.
I don’t know about this year, however. I know me and my housemates are doing a sort of Christmas (though I’m not sure when), but it won’t be this since I’m living in a new place now. I am excited for pre-Christmas Christmas with these girls though!
Where do you spend Christmas?
It’s always been at my grandparents! Apart from one Christmas where they came to our place, every year I’ve spent Christmas at my grandparents. This year, I had to make a hard decision about not seeing certain family members whilst sticking with tradition and it was not easy. None of it was and it does make me anxious about Christmas.
And that’s that! If you’re reading this and want to give the Christmas tag a go, feel free to nab these questions from me (I merged a few Christmas tags together so I got to most relevant questions to me).
