Winter/Christmas tag

I've seen some winter tags and some Christmas tags floating around and instead of doing 2 posts (as some of the questions are the same/very similar) I thought I'd just combine them :) So here goes!

What is your favourite thing about winter/Christmas?
My favourite thing about winter/Christmas is snow! I'm such a big kid when it comes to snow and I definitely think we don't get enough of it here in East Anglia!! More please!

What is your favourite make up look for the festive season?
As you probably know by now, I'm not a big make up wearer, I just can't be arsed and don't care too much about it plus its effort taking it off! When I do wear make up I always go for a natural look unless it's a night out then it's usually a smokey eye.. I do this all year round though, sorry!
Real or fake tree?
For the last 3 years Aaron and I have had a fake tree, one of those crappy pop up ones (they don't actually pop up but you do pop them up quite quickly..!) But we don't really like it just bought it cause it doesn't take up much room. Next year I'd like to get either a real tree or a good quality fake one :)

Giving presents or receiving presents?
I'd be lying if I said I don't love to receive presents because naturally, I do! But more than that, I enjoy Christmas present shopping, wrapping presents then seeing their face when they open it - providing they like it (I'm pretty good though and always get something I know they will like) it gives you such a warm feeling inside :)

Do you open your Christmas Presents morning or evening?
We always open our presents together Christmas morning after we've had a bite to eat and got washed and dressed.

Handmade Christmas cards or bought?
I don't think I've ever received a handmade Christmas card but I wouldn't mind either, it's the thought that counts.

What is your favourite Christmas film?
Without a doubt, my favourite Christmas film is Elf! It's just hilarious! "Buddy the elf, what's your favourite colour?" :D

What is your favourite winter/Christmas food?
My favourite winter food is roast dinners. We always have more gravy dinners when it's cold out and I love a good roast potato! But my favourite Christmas food is pigs in blankets (small sausages with bacon wrapped round it) because we only seem to have them Christmas day/boxing day.

Winter weather must-have?
A chunky knit scarf if I'm going out or some thick fleecey PJ bottoms for round the house.

Favourite winter coat?

I only have 2 coats anyway, an every day one and a smart one! The every day one is a black duffle coat and the smart one is one with double breasted with a tie round the middle.

Favourite Winter Candle?

I don't tend to buy wintery scented candles, I'm not really sure why. Aaron and I both love vanilla candles and tend to burn them all year round! Not the sickly ones though.

Favourite Christmas decoration?

I love all Christmas decorations but the last couple of years I've really loved the jelly window stickers!

Favourite Christmas colour combo?

I guess this means for decorations? We're quite traditional so usually stick to red, green, gold and white.

Favourite winter perfume?

I don't tend to change my perfume through the seasons, If I've got it then I use it! I don't have loads on the go at once either. At the moment I'm changing between 2-3 depending on where I'm going/what I'm doing.

Favourite winter polish?

Depends what mood I'm in! In December I like to keep it Christmassy.. At the moment I have a plain white Barry M on with Sally Hansens 'Hidden Treasure' over the top. I love Hidden Treasure, It's awesome! I done a NOTD with it here.

I also done a Christmas traditions post too, that's here if you fancy a peek. Let me know if you also do or have done this tag, I'd love to have a read :)
