The Christmas tag 2013

Hello Bellas!
I thought I would do something a little different after stumbling across this tag this evening. Georgina from Makeup-Pixi3 has created this lovely Christmas 2013 tag and I wanted to give it a go. 
If you are reading this, please feel free to tag yourself and play along! Let me know once you have done it so I can have a cheeky read 🙂
1.  Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
Although I like to see rows and rows of Christmas trees in the garden centres, I much prefer synthetic trees. Growing up we always had a synthetic tree and I like the idea of having the same one year after year. I think the perfectionist in me also likes the fact that you can tweak a synthetic tree to get it exactly as you want it 🙂 

2.  You’re in a coffee shop, it’s December, what do you pick?

Hummmm, I would opt for a diet coke. Although I love the smell of coffee, I hate the taste. I’m not one for hot chocolate or anything like that either. A bit boring I know lol
3.  What’s your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?

My tree is sliver and blues to match my living room which is duck egg blue. Although I do love to see the traditional reds golds and greens.
4.  Giving or receiving?

I defiantly love to give people presents. I do however get a little stressed if I don’t know what to get people. My favourite thing to do is make presents to give to people and I do that as much as I can.
5.  To mince pie or not to?

Nope!! Don’t like ’em at all!!
6.  What’s your traditional sunday lunch?

I go to my mums every Sunday as the other half is always at football or playing golf. We usually have a Chicken dinner with mash and roast potatoes, cabbage, carrots, stuffing and a good old Yorkshire pudding if we are lucky 🙂
7.  Christmas day fashion

We don’t really have a tradition as such but we do like to dress a little smart. Of course whatever we wear has to have the ability to stretch lol 
8.  What’s your favourite Christmas song?

I really like all Christmas music, but probably the classic Mariah Carey ‘all I want for Christmas is you’
9.  What’s your favourite Christmas film?

I love polar express, it’s such a lovely film.
10.  Open presents before or after lunch?

Usually we wake up at home and open the present we have bought each other. We then go to my mums for breakfast and more present opening. Then to Anthony’s nanna’s for dinner and even more present opening! Busy but enjoyable day!!
Hope you have enjoyed reading!!

      Sorry Gemma I thought I had replied to this so I'm a little late!! I remember seeing the polar express train in Florida when we went for Christmas a few years ago! I've just seen you've done the tag yourself so I'm about to pop over and have a look xx
