The Makeup Pixi3 Christmas tag

The lovely Laura over at a Day in the life of a Scottish Lass, tagged me to do the Makeup Pixi3 Christmas tag and seeing as how the big day is now only a month away (scary!) I couldn't resist.

What's your favourite thing about Christmas?

I love the preparation for it - shopping for gifts, advent calendars and getting to spend lots of time catching up with my friends and family who I don't see often enough.

What's your favourite makeup look for the Christmas season?

Statement eyes plus for Christmas parties, I love a glittery nail. This year I will most likely be using my Nails Inc Bling it on Rocks.

Real tree or fake tree?

Ummm...I have always had fake trees aside from last year when I had my first real tree. I loved having a real tree as it smelled so Christmassy, but didn't enjoy hoovering up needles every 5 seconds. I might go back to a fake one this year.

Giving presents or receiving presents?

I love giving them. I spend hours and hours thinking about what to get people as I love the look on their faces when they open it up and it's just what they wanted.

Do you open your presents Christmas morning or evening?

In the morning. I don't have enough patience to wait past lunch!

Handmade Christmas cards or bought?

I buy Christmas cards every year and forget to send them. I do the same thing every year without fail. Maybe if I made them myself I would actually give them out...

What's your all time favourite Christmas film?

Not very traditional, but I love Bad Santa! I also love watching ET when it comes on every year. It's one of the few films that's actually made me cry.

What's your favourite Christmas food?

This sounds really weird, but at Christmas, it's a tradition in my family to make little prawn vol au vents (puff pastry cases stuffed with prawns). It's the only time of year I let myself eat them so I tend to get a bit overexcited and eat a lot! It's also the only time of year where I can legitimately get away with eating chocolate at breakfast time, he he.

I would love for you to do this tag too, so am tagging everyone! Please feel free to send me your links back so that I can read them, and don't forge to mention Makeup Pixi3 as the tag creator :)
