DECEMBER. so the countdown to Christmas has begun girls (and perhaps the odd boy)...

A few days ago Caroline from coffeeandcaroline kindly nominated me to do a Christmas tag post and i'm delighted to take part!

Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic? 
Without any question of doubt...a real Christmas tree! I love going to select the tree, the smell and choosing a colour scheme with my mamma to decorate it

You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick up?
I must admit i'm not a massive festive coffee drinker...if i had to pick i would opt for a salted caramel latte but normally choose a chai latte 
What's your favorite color scheme for decorating the tree?
Having visited several German Christmas markets i've collected several beautiful and unique decorations. Normally black, red and gold colour theme though

Giving or receiving? 
Definitely giving - i love selecting gifts for friends and seeing their reactions as they unwrap their gifts. Christmas Gift Guide to follow this week if you're looking for some sweet ideas

To mince pie or not to?
I'm afraid i've never been a fan of mince pies

What's your traditional Christmas lunch?
Turkey and all the trimmings mmm

Christmas day fashion
I'm usually in my PJs for most of the day, but once we go out I usually wear black leggings, black booties, and a pretty shirt/sweater. 

What's your favourite Christmas song?
Last Christmas - Wham! 

What's your favourite Christmas film?
The Holiday, Love Actually and Elf

Open presents before or after lunch?
For as long as i can remember Christmas morning has been spent with my family opening our presents together, sipping on bucks fizz and singing along to some Christmas songs.


  1. Mmm, a salted caramel latte sounds delicious. I'm so excited for Christmas!
