Christmas Tag!

Hi Guys,

This is my second Christmas post! Writing this really helped me get into the holiday spirit! I decided to do the Christmas tag as you can probably tell from the title. I'm really terrible at intros so let's just get started!

1) What's your favourite Christmas film?
The Muppet Christmas Carol! My family watches it on the first weekend of December, without fail It's still funny, after what feels like the 1000th time. Another favourite is Elf, but after being in the musical, it's kind of lost it's sparkle!

2) Have you ever had a white Christmas?
To be honest, I can't remember one! I must have, though, because there was one in 2010. It was pretty recent too, how did I forget?

3) Where do you usually spend the holidays?
I've never actually spent Christmas anywhere but my house. I think Christmas is a time for family so it just feels even cosier if it's in your house!

4) What is your favourite Christmas song?
Don't make me choose! My sister thinks it's weird that I like 'Underneath the Tree' by Kelly Clarkson and 'One More Sleep' by Leona Lewis. They're not the most traditional songs but I love them! I'd say that my favourites are the first 20 on 'Now That's What I Call Christmas'!

5) Do you open any presents on Christmas eve?
Most people open PJ's but I've never done that: I don't even get pajamas for Christmas!

6) Name Santa's reindeer...
Okay, there's: Dasher, Dancer, Donner, Vixen, Blitzen, Cupid, Prancer and Rudolph. The only one I missed was Comet! I'm actually really proud of myself!

7) Do you have any holiday traditions?
Every Christmas Eve, we walk to our local Costa. It's about an hour away but it's so much fun. It started about five years ago and my family have been doing it ever since! My sister is working on the 24th this year so I hope we'll still be able to make it!

8) Is your tree real or fake?
It's fake. We put it up this morning actually. The amount of baubles we managed to stuff on to it is unreal!

9) What's your all time favourite Christmas food?
Chocolate. Enough said.

10) Giving or receiving gifts?
When anyone does this tag, they always say giving. Of course, I love the feeling of sharing and giving...but! Everyone loves to be given to! I'd say it's a draw!

11) Dream destination to spend the holidays?
Probably New York. Whenever they show New York on TV it always seems so wintry! 

12) Are you good at wrapping?
I'm alright. It's not really my strong suit but I've got the basics down. If I ever want something to look good, I'll always get my Dad to wrap it for me. But remember, if in doubt: stick on a bow! 

13) Do you stick to your New Years Resolutions?
I will have a post coming about this so make sure to follow my blog so you're notified when that comes out!!

14) What makes the holidays special for you?
The atmosphere! It has to be illegal to be unhappy on Christmas day! I'm normally a pretty lively person so Christmas feels like the one day a year where people catch up to me with excitement levels! The amount of exclamation marks I'm using really illustrates my point!

They're all the question's I'll be answering this year. I presume that this is the point that you tag people: anyone who hasn't already, please do this tag! I had a lot of fun thinking about Christmas! Please don't forget to add me to your circles on Google +. Have a great day!

Thanks for Reading

A Collection of Failures Through February...

I don't really know if what a clumsy and awkward person I am has been documented enough. Through inference, I feel like it's been made evident. I've mentioned a few of the embarrassing little moments that I've had throughout my monthly's but you are wrong if you think that's it. My life is not just a collection of one off encounters with shame: it's basically a book. A solid 75% of February had been comprised of making a fool of myself, overall. So, here I am, admitting to that fact, and hoping that these stories will make you feel a little bit better about yourself...

The Onion Incident- Okay, I feel like this dramatic title has really pulled you in! Our story begins on a Thursday morning, during half term. I was going to go out to print some photos for my scrap book but my mum asked if I'd go and get her two carrots, an onion and a bag of potatoes. A strangely specific list- I know- but I just accepted it and went off on my journey. I printed my photos…

Why I Hate Rom Coms...

Contrary to what the title would have you believe, romance is my favourite genre of film. I'd say that the first real rom com I watched was 'Pretty Woman' and my obsession had grown since then. However, no matter have much I adore them, I have some issues with the category. Pretty much everyone romance film includes one of these tropes; they wouldn't be a trope if they didn't!

First of all is rain. I have no problem with the weather: light drizzle is actually my favourite weather (I find it really therapeutic to see it bouncing off of an umbrella, okay?!?) but the rain you get in rom coms is next level. It's thunderstorm level of soak, yet nobody seems to have seen the forecast! Surely if that much rain was predicted, one of these people would be wearing a raincoat? It actually doesn't seem to have any kind of effect on the characters, so their lack of preparation isn't an issue. If I'm getting rained on I'm shivery, have stringy curls all over m…
