Christmas Tag

With Christmas being 9 days away, I decided it's about time I do the Christmas tag! I honestly can't believe how fast this year has gone, it doesn't feel like two minutes since last year with all the wrapping and getting ready for Christmas! 

What time of year do you start your Christmas shopping? 
Probably early November, I cannot shop properly when it is super stressful and I enjoy Christmas shopping so I like it to be fun! 

Do you have any festive recipes for food or drink you limit solely to the Christmas season to share? I like to bake all year round, I make more biscuits at these time and add pretty little snowmen and santa decorations to them! 

Tell me how Christmas goes down in your home? For most of my life it has been at my grandparents but since my parents split up it's been a bit different and this year it is going to be different again so I couldn't tell you! 

Do you have any Christmas traditions? Nope but I'm thinking of running a bloggers secret santa from now on every year! :-) 

Do you have a favourite festive coffee? I don't drink coffee, but I do love the festive hot chocolates from Costa, if you are yet to try one I recommend the honeycomb hot chocolate it's lovely! 

Do you have a favourite Christmas song? I did until work played them to death only kidding, I like Wizard I wish it could be Christmas everyday! Also Lily Allen "Somewhere only we know" great song with a super cute video! 

What do you do on Christmas Eve? Last year and this year I will be working, how exciting! After that probably just watch a Christmassy film! 

What's your Christmas wrapping strategy? Not let my boyfriend anywhere near them? Because he makes a terrible mess, I like wrapping anything circular into a cracker? That sounds weird, but so much easier than wrapping them normally!

What's your dream gift this year? Lots and lots of make-up as I am completely obsessed! I plan to get lots of clothes for my birthday which is 3 weeks after!  

Describe your Christmas tree. How tall? Real or artificial? How is it decorated? My mother decorates the tree downstairs and it must all match with gold and red decorations so I decided this year to invest in my own tree for my room, and it's pink with bright lights and silver baubles on! Pretty! 

Do you decorate just the tree or other areas of your house e.g. windows, bannisters? We used to have them outside the house, but they all broke *sad face* I decorate my own room (I love Christmas okay?) with lights! 

What do you wear to Christmas parties and what do you wear on Christmas day? Lots and lots of glitter, who doesn't love glitter, I haven't really got a dress for christmas day I just hope that I get some of the pretty dresses on my wishlist to wear! *crosses fingers*

I tag everyone who is yet to do this tag! 
& Happy Christmas everyone!
