I've been wanting to do The Christmas Tag for a while now .. ever since I read Sasha's post over on Ramblings of a Beauty Bird - who'd been tagged by Laura from A Day In The Life of A Scottish Lass - who'd been tagged by the creator of the post Georgina from Makeup-Pixi3. They are all on my Groovy Blogging Babes blogroll so feel free to check them out!

So...on to the questions...
Q. What’s your favourite thing about Christmas?
It has to be getting together with all of my family. Both my brothers live away - (the youngest in France) so it isn't very often we're all together - but we make the effort at Christmas and it's usually a bit of a riotous affair - filled with food, drink, music and general merriment.
Q. What’s your favourite makeup look for the festive season?
I've always leaned towards smokey eyes with a bit of sparkly stuff here and there and lip gloss but have also done bigger brighter lips this year (get me!) courtesy of my Kate Moss Mattes - loving em!
Q. Real tree or fake tree?
Usually a real one. We did try for a fake tree this year as they were half price in Homebase but they had all sold out.
Q. Giving presents or receiving presents?
It's all about the giving isn't it? I usually find it hard to stop buying presents once I start and get carried away (always seem to have last-minute ideas too!) - I have really tried to control myself this year though but hopefully have still got everyone some decent pressies (and that's all I'm saying!).
Q. Do you open your presents Christmas morning or evening?
Morning with the hubby and kids and evening with the rest of the family after dinner - so a bit of both!
Q. What’s your favourite Christmas film?
Think it's got to be Meet Me In St.Louis - still gives me goosebumps when I hear 'The Trolley Song'!
Q. What’s your favourite Christmas food?
My mum's wonderful Christmastime stuffing - it's a bit of an Anglo-Indian recipe passed down through the generations, which most of our extended family concoct in various ways! Includes sausage, mushroom, onions, peas, carrots, potatoes, fried bread - and Mum's own personal blend of seasonings of course. We don't stuff the turkey with it but have huge (and I mean huge!) helping on the side (good job mum makes a vat of stuffing really!) - it's the highlight of the Christmas and Boxing Day dinner for me!
Right that's it! I really enjoyed writing this post - thanks for reading this far down! Please let me know if you decide to squeeze this post in before Christmas - would love to read your answers (I'm nosey like that!).
