Hope you're all having a good week and keeping nice and warm in this freezing weather. Can you believe Christmas is less than 2 weeks away? Before we know it it's gonna be 2014! A few weeks back Hannah who runs a blog called Beginners Beauty tagged me in her How I Spend My Christmas post. I'm really enjoying reading everyone's Christmas posts this month, so I thought it's time I do this tag to! Here are my answers to all the questions, hope you enjoy reading them!
1. What are you usually up to on Christmas Eve?
My Christmas eve is probably a little different to most other people because my family celebrates Christmas German style, which means getting your presents on Christmas eve. My mum is German, and even though my dad is the catholic in the family she always insists we celebrate Christmas the German way, so on Christmas eve I'll be tucking into some German Christmas cookies and getting my presents!
2. Who do you spend your Christmas day with?
I will be spending this Christmas with my cat Billie (pictured), my mum ze German, my dad and my lil bro. My parents always invite their friends round for Christmas dinner (turkey and all that), so I'm pretty sure I'll be seeing them on Christmas day too.
3. Do you enjoy giving or receiving gifts?
Well, obviously my favourite part of Christmas is receiving gifts. I'd be lying if I claimed otherwise.
4. What does your outfit consist of on Christmas day?
Something smart with and elasticated waist (maybe leggings and a dress), so I can stuff my face with Christmas dinner as much as possible without being sick.
5. Do you enjoy shopping for your loved ones gifts?
Well that depends. I like buying stuff for my mum because I always get her perfume, make up or skincare which is fun to buy. My dad and my brother are a nightmare because they never tell me what they want. I've bought my dad a Dior fragrance this year as well as a Garfield calendar. If my brother doesn't let me know what he wants soon he will be getting a lump of coal.
6. Have you ever received a gift you disliked and pretended you liked it?
Yes, like when I get given make up that's not to my taste I'm like wow that's amazing when I know full well I'll be taking it down to the charity shop on boxing day. I'm a bit more honest with my mum though. One year she bought me a book on birds, so I could see what birds are in the garden. I was like literally WTF, especially as I have never ever expressed an interest in birds in my whole life. But my mum does the same to me. If she doesn't like what I got her she asks me for the receipt. It's a German thing.
7. What would your ideal Christmas be?
One where I get a staffie. If you follow me on Twitter you will know all about my obsession with staffies.
8. What is your least favourite thing about Christmas?
I work on a make up counter and I really love my job, however we are not allowed any holiday or weekends off in December or November. It's seems like forever ago I had a whole weekend off, so even though I am loving how busy it is at work at the moment, I am looking forward to hopefully having a weekend off in January!
9. What is the best gift you ever received?
There's no particular gift that sticks out. Next question.
10. If you could choose one person to spend Christmas with who would it be and why? (Other than family)
I would chose my cat Jessie who sadly passed away over 2 years ago. I know she's not a person but she was my best friends and I still miss her every day so that's who I'd pick.
