My 2015 Favourites...

Thursday, 31 December 2015

2015 will be over and done with in a few hours, and again we will all have a clean slate of a year. Firstly, I want to thank you all immensely for your support with my blog this year, as I definitely couldn't have got this far without all of you reading and commenting on here! Secondly, and as you have probably guessed from the title of this post, I will now be sharing a few of my favourite things from the past 12 months-some of the beauty, some of them fashion and the others...well a bit random!

Beauty

Nude Lipsticks-these have been my go to this year, after months of being totally washed out by lipstick shades that in no way suit me. Both of these two lipsticks are quite warm,with rather pinky undertones which I love-the one on the left being Mac Velvet Teddy and the one on the right Urban Decay Liar.


Real Techniques Brushes-I honestly can't believe that I took me till this summer to purchase some Real Techniques brushes, but I have to say it was worth the wait. A proud owner of the Core Collection, these brushes have definitely changed the way I do my makeup for the better.


Supercat Eyeliner-as a great lover of eyeliner, this product has been my saviour this year. From the image below you can see I now own three of these eyeliners, because it's better to be safe than sorry and as I use this particular product every single day (or near enough) I need to have some on standby!


Fashion

Topshop Coat-we have had a pretty mild winter in the UK (no snow to be seen, but a hell of a lot of rain) so I haven't really needed a big winter coat. However, this coat has been a wardrobe staple of mine for the past few months, due to its ability to be worn with everything and anything and still look fantastic.


M&S Jeans-I'm not one to buy many items of clothing from M&S, but I do have to say that the jeans in their Limited Collection are amazing. Mine are simple, black high-waisted ones that incredibly comfy and if my memory is correct they weren't even that expensive either. (Sorry, but I couldn't find a link to these, although they do have some similar on the M&S website).

New Look Brogues-these,by far, have been my favourite shoes this year. They must have been only £15 from New Look, but are some of the best shoes I have ever owned-pretty to look at, but so so comfortable as well. And it's only now that you can see a bit of wear on them, after a good 3/4 months of constant wearing.(Again with these shoes I couldn't find the exact ones, so have linked to a similar pair).


Miscellaneous

Victoria's Secret-when we first got a VS store in Birmingham, I didn't quite realise how obsessed I would get with the items inside of it. The underwear is to die for, not to mention the clothes and body sprays which smell beautiful.



Pretty Little Liars-this show served me well, and I spend the best part of six months (January through June) catching up to the current seasons. It really hooked me from the off, and I think I watched the first season in under a week! I love all the characters, all the twists and turns, and now cannot wait to see the new time jump episodes.

London-I was lucky enough to visit London twice this year, and I have to say it is one of my favourite places in England to go to. There is so much there to see, and also for me so many shops
 to visit! 


Well, thank you for an amazing year! Have a great New Year's Eve and a fantastic 2016!!!!

My 2015; a year of shopping, travelling and too many tiramisus

Wednesday, 30 December 2015

Hello again,

As this is one of my final posts of 2015, I thought I would just do a little review of the year and share some of my favourite photos from the past 12 months. This year, I would say, has been a pretty good one for me-although it has passed by in the blink of an eye, I feel like I have achieved and done quite a lot.

I haven't been abroad this year, but have still been lucky enough to see a lot of England-I have visited London twice, Lincoln, Sheffield, Manchester, Cambridge, Liverpool and Chester to name a few more (see some of the photos below). I have started this blog (and gained over 25,000 page views by doing so!) and I have also started my GCSE's...so below I have rounded up my favourite moments in picture form.


Going from left to right on each row;

Baking Cookies, St Pauls Catherdral in April, One of the many Tiramisus I ate this year.

My Cambridge Satchel, One of many Selfies, Liverpool Albert Dock in the Summer.

The Best Burger, Lincoln, A Cafe Nero Milkshake.

Oxford Street in October, A good old cup of Tea, Another Selfie.

And that's all there is really to my 2015! I have a lot of exciting things coming up next year and I really do hope you all have a lovely 2016 too...my 2015 Favourites will be up tomorrow.

Too Faced Melted Lipstick

Tuesday, 29 December 2015

For all too long now, I have admired blog and Instagram posts littered with images of the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks, but for £19 I never thought about actually investing in one myself. But, one Debenhams Gift Card later and here I am, the proud owner of the Nude Melted Lipstick ...which I am yet to wear, but anyway here are my first impressions.
The Packaging-if you have seen, or own, one of the many Too Faced products out there, you will know how pretty their packaging is. This lipstick is no exception either, as it cute box and writing make it stand out on an shelf.

The Product-the actual lipstick is pretty beautiful too, if not a little intriguing. If I didn't know any better I could quite easily believe that this product was a lip gloss due to its bottle type and brush end, but as I know from reviews and from applying some of the testers to my hands, the consistency is in fact in the style of a lipstick.

The Colour-as I previously said, I haven't worn this product properly yet, but after swatching it several times I know that the shade is prefect for me. Over the past few months, I have fallen in love with nude and more natural lip shades which means that the colour of this lipstick is right up my street-being brown/nude with pinky undertones (from what I have seen so far), I just know I'm going to wear this a hell of a lot!

The Value for Money-this lip product definitely isn't the cheapest,but from a brand like Too Faced you can't really expect any less. Hopefully the quality will shine through with my Melted Lipstick, and as the bottle does seem quite big I wouldn't say that I was too overly priced.
I really cannot wait to start wearing this lipstick, as it is very different from anything I currently own and quite clearly I have been desperate to own it for a long time. Once I have started using it properly I am sure to feature another sort of review of it here or on social media so stay tuned for that...

Christmas Makeup Look

Monday, 28 December 2015

I don't normally share many of my makeup looks, despite the fact that I always trying out new products and adding new bits and bobs to my routine...But considering it has just been Christmas, I thought it would be fun to share the makeup look that I wore over the festive season-including all the items that I used and some of the tips and tricks as to how I applied said products.


Base Makeup...
After cleansing and moisturising my skin, I firstly primed using the Benefit Porefessional Primer and then applied the Bourjous Healthy Mix Foundation using my Real Techniques Buffing Brush (popping a small dollop on my hand, I worked the foundation into my skin in circular motions to make sure it was even and not too cakey). Then under my eyes I dotted some of the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, as well as applying Benefit Boi-ing Concealer on my other discoloured patches of skin and blemishes.

After blending together using my Real Techniques Beauty Sponge, I also brushed the Bourjous Healthy Balance Powder all over my face to mattify my skin (although I didn't apply too much, as it would ultimately just clog my pores up ever more!). To contour (or rather attempt to contour) I brushed some of the NYX Bronzer under my cheekbones using my Real Techniques Contour Brush and then dabbed some of the Benefit High Beam actually onto my cheekbone area, before blending both in. Finally for my base makeup, I applied a tiny bit of the TheBalm Frat Boy Blusher to my cheeks (I say a tiny bit, as I do find that this blusher is quite bright).

Eye Makeup...
Using my new Ted Baker Eyeshadow Quad (I had this as part of a set for Christmas), I built up my eyeshadow-starting with the lightest shade of the bunch and finishing with the darkest. I then drew on my eyeliner using the Soap&Glory Supercat Pen, and as usual in my case I went for a winged eyeliner look which I do by running the pen along my top lash line then joining it up with flicks on the end. For mascara, I used my Benefit Eyelash Primer (I got this out of Elle Magazine a month or so ago and really love it, due to how it lengthens my lashes so easily), and my Benefit They're Real

You can find out how I do my eyebrows in one of my recent posts, but in this case I also used some of my NYX Brow Pomade to define the arches of both my eyebrows

Lip Makeup...
In this instance I kept my lips pretty subdued, and used my pink W7 Lip Twister Lip Liner, followed by a coat of the Diego Dalla Palma Lipstick that I also talked about a few posts back.

You can find nearly all of the makeup mentioned here on these websites;
M&S 

And my shirt was from Miss Selfridge 

Thank you for reading, I hope you all enjoyed this sort of post...

Sale Wishlist

Sunday, 27 December 2015

Everyone loves a good sale, right? But nowadays, it seems so much easier to just shop from the comfort of our own homes, online-so I thought I would create a little guide to my some of my favourite things that I have seen in the online sales so far, to give you all some inspiration if you have some Christmas money or vouchers to spend...

Below are items from ASOS, Topshop and some bits and pieces of makeup that I have seen on several sites:you can click on each image, or item you like and it will take you to the appropriate webpage so you can find out more information!

What I got for Christmas...

Saturday, 26 December 2015

Hello Again, 

I cannot believe that Christmas has come and gone;after all the build up and months of preparations it has disappeared within the blink of an eye, and now we all have to wait another year for it to come around again...

Even so, I received so so many lovely presents off my family and friends so today I thought I would just share a few of those with you all (*in no way am I bragging about what I received, I just really wanted to talk about a few gifts, mostly makeup related ones, that I have had).

Benefit 'Life of the Party'-from Boots (contains the Porefessional Primer, They're Real Mascara, Three Eyeshadows, Benetint, Rockateur and Dandelion Blusher)
Benefit 'How to look the Best at Everything'-from Boots (contains the Boing Concealer, Porefessional Primer, Hello Flawless Foundation, Hello Flawless Powder)
Essie Nail Polishes-available from Boots and Superdrug (in the colours Fishnet Stockings, Bahama Mama, Cocktail Bling, Licorice and Fiji)
Ted Baker Lipstick-from a Boots set (which also contained two nail polishes, a blusher and eyeshadow trio, eyelash curlers, eyeliner, mascara, lipgloss, lip and cheek tint, kabuki brush, eyeshadow brush!)
And these cute little slippers, that I think I will now live in-also from Boots!

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas,

Olivia xo

P.S I may still post nearly everyday for the next week or so whilst I'm still off school.

My Nanshy Brushes and The End of Blogmas

Thursday, 24 December 2015

Hi again,

Today is going to be a bit of a mix of posts-as you can tell from the title, I will start with a quick review of my Nanshy Brushes that I bought earlier this month, and end with a little summary of Blogmas 2015...

Firstly, the brushes, and it was at the Clothes Show that I first laid eyes on these beauties (although I had heard a lot about the Nanshy Brand before hand), and I just knew I had to get some. As you can see in the below picture, I so far only own two of their brushes (the Foundation and the Angled Detailer) but I would absolutely love to build my way up to the full collection in future...


These brushes are just so pretty; at the Clothes Show they sold both the black and the white collection, and as most of my makeup brushes are black anyway I decided to go with white. I'm so happy that I did as well, because I personally think that the white handled brushes are extremely pretty (and as a matter of fact make for a very good photo!)

The brushes themselves aren't the cheapest, nor are they the most expensive out there-I believe that my Detailer was about £5 and my foundation brush was about £7 (these were the prices at the Clothes Show though, and are a tad cheaper than the normal costs). But, I think this is definitely a case of you get what you pay for, as the overall quality of these brushes is incredible;whether it be the look of them or the feel of the brush itself, they are all round great products. 

Both of my brushes clearly do very different things, but they are both very good at said jobs. My Angled Detailer is perfect for doing my eyebrows when I'm using pomades or waxes, and my Foundation excels when it comes to applying both foundation and Bb creams.  

For those reasons, I have to say that these brushes are definitely worth the hype and the price tag in fact! If you are like me, and a bit on the fence as to whether to make the purchase or not, as usual I would say go for it, because if you want a good quality brush this is the perfect brand for you!

Another quick note before I go...
I cannot believe that it is the end of Blogmas already! 24 days of blogging everyday has just flown by, and quite frankly I cannot believe I have stuck to it and posted something every single day (whether or not I kind of repeated myself and wrote about similar things I still did it, and that in itself is a major achievement for me as someone whose attention span does waver sometimes to say the least!) 

I really really really hope that you have all enjoyed me posting every single day, as I have in fact really enjoyed writing such posts. This was my first attempt at Blogmas, and I would love to do it again in future and perhaps do spells of every day blogging throughout the year as well!

Of course though, I have to say a big thank you also to all of you who have took the time to read my posts everyday and left me lovely comments etc...you're amazing, and really helping me to grow this little blog of mine!

See you all after Christmas (probably Boxing Day because I'm really in the habit of posting now!)

My Brow Routine-Blogmas Day 23

Wednesday, 23 December 2015

My brows are something that I work hard to get looking right, after years of mis-shaping and over plucking them etc... Nowadays though, I like to think that I have worked out a good routine to get my eyebrows looking to a standard I am happy with, and today I thought it would be only fair to share that with you all..
The two products above are probably my most used when it comes to doing my eyebrows. A couple of weeks ago I also shared a bit of a review of my NYX Brow Pomade, which I also use (although it is a more time consuming product so I mostly only use it when I have ages to get myself ready). 

So the products I used on a daily basis are instead the Soap&Glory Brow Archery (I know, I rave about this all the time but it's just so good!) and also the Benefit Gimme Brow...

My Archery Pen is in the shade Brownie Points, and my Gimme Brow is Light/Medium.

Now onto when, and how I actually apply the products; and when I make a start on my brows, sometimes to begin with a give them a quick brush to make sure they are in the right sort of shape. Then, using the pen end of the Archery (see below on the left-hand side) I will just draw over the shape of my eyebrows, and colour in any sparse areas. Afterwards, using the wax pencil end (also see below on the right), I will simply brush over both brows to even out the colour.

Next, with my Gimme Brow I will just brush on a few strokes to again fill in any sparse areas, and also to keep the brow hairs in place all day!

And that's all there is to it really! I remember spending forever on my eyebrows in days gone by, and now it all seems so simple using these two products...products that you can find really easily too on Boots.com.

Pixi Glow Tonic-Blogmas Day 22

Tuesday, 22 December 2015

As soon as I found out that the M&S Beauty Advent Calendar contained the much raved over Pixi Glow Tonic, I got incredibly excited. I don't own any Pixi beauty products, let alone anything from their Skin Care range (although I have wanted to buy one of their items so ages!), so I couldn't wait to get one in my Advent Calendar. 

The Glow Tonic in particular was one of the products I most wanted from the Pixi brand, as I have been reading excellent reviews of it for so long! Most people who own it say that it does in fact live up to its many beneficial claims to the skin, so after trying it a couple of times I thought I would assess whether I believe it does too...


My skin felt fresh and clean immediately after cleansing-something which I was very happy about because in the winter months especially, my skin can feel pretty gross, so for it to get a bit of a boost so quickly was always going to be a massive bonus! 

I also saw some signs of exfoliating, especially around my nose and t-zone. Again, this made me super happy as this little bottle was in fact living up to my expectations-any left over makeup was washed from my pores upon application of this stuff, which no doubt added to the feeling of freshness in my skin.

Did my skin 'glow' though? Well after only a couple of uses, it's pretty difficult to tell. But from what I have seen so far, this product definitely does give your skin a nice lift, so hopefully (fingers crossed) it will give it a bit of a healthy glow if I continue using it!

I will probably update you all about this product as I go along, to see if it does have any lasting effect on my skin. In the meantime, you can have a better look at it on the M&S Website...

Festive Red Lip Duo-Blogmas Day 21

Monday, 21 December 2015

As I mentioned yesterday, I think red lips are the perfect addition to a makeup look at this time of year to make it look a bit more festive. Yesterday, I showed the Soap&Glory lip crayon and today I will be sharing another of my favourite products to create that dramatic red lip over the holiday period...

Above is the finished red lip look-as you can see it is pretty striking, and will stay like that for hours upon using the products I used. Those products are the w7 Lip Twister lip liner which I bought from the Clothes Show and used to line my lips with and also the NYX Matte Lip Cream in the shade Monte Carlo (I also bought this from the Clothes Show, but you can find it online on Boots as well!)

Both of these products are incredibly cheap (perfect around Christmas time when we are all a little short on money after weeks of present buying), but are still fantastic quality. As I mentioned before, they will stay on for hours-I actually wore this lip duo to two meals and it stayed firmly in place for the duration of both!


Olivia xo

P.S. Sorry for the short post today, but I hope you are all enjoying Blogmas-I can't believe it's nearly over though, and that it's nearly Christmas Day!

Making your Makeup look Festive on a Budget-Blogmas Day 20

Sunday, 20 December 2015

I feel like Christmas is the perfect time of year to add that little bit more oomph to your makeup look and outfits, especially when you are going out to parties and meals. It seems like everyone is buying all manner of makeup bits and bobs to add more glitz and glamour to their looks, when in reality, most people can't afford to go out and buy all of those new products...

Therefore, today I thought I would share with you the three (yes, just three) products that I would, and will use to add a bit more glitter to my look-and guess what? They won't break your budget either, as altogether actually cost under £10!


A red lip adds definition to any makeup look, and will be the perfect finishing touch to your Christmas look. This particular lip product is from Soap&Glory and is only £3.50!-such a cheap price considering the quality of the Soap&Glory products and the fact that you can re-use this lipstick after Christmas too!


Adding a bit of glitter to the eyes, is also the perfect way to step up the festive feel to your makeup. I wouldn't recommend going to overboard with the sparkle though (it definitely won't be any fun having glitter in your eyes all day/night), so I would just dot some in the inner corner of my eyes, or the outer corner by my black eyeliner flick. Again, this Collection eyeliner dirt cheap at only £2.99, which means that if you do only use it for a few special occasions you haven't really wasted your money!


The final product I would use to add some cosmetic glitz at Christmas, is a glittery nail polish. I own all too many nail polishes (especially sparkly ones), but this one is a particular favourite of mine due to its red and gold flecks which just scream Christmas! This Barry M nail polish is fantastic quality (as are all of their products) and is only £3.99!!

Hopefully this post provided a bit of assistance to any of you, who like myself, want to step up their festive makeup game this year...

December so far-Blogmas Day 19

Saturday, 19 December 2015

I honestly cannot believe how quickly this month has gone so far, and the fact that it is only 6 days till Christmas so far is insane!! Blogmas has actually gone pretty well for me so far, and I really hope you have all enjoyed it-therefore today I thought I would just round up my month in photos so far...


Going from left to right from the top;
-My amazing M&S Advent Calendar that I have really enjoyed opening so far (I'm so sad that I only have 5 more boxes left to open)
-Visiting the Clothes Show at the beginning of the month (this picture was before the fashion show)
-Some of my Clothes Show Beauty Buys, which I made a post about a couple of weeks ago!
-Before going out for a meal, also at the beginning of the month
-Some Costa Christmas Treats (a Caramel Stacker cake and a Salted Caramel Cappucino to be precise)
-Food from another meal (this was an absolutely gorgeous starter of Goats Cheese on a toasted brioche bun with tomato chutney)
-Mince Pies, that I actually didn't bake this month but they are still very Christmassy
-Some of the jewellery I bought at the Clothes Show (I also wrote about these purchases in an earlier post)
-And of course, my Frozen tissues to top it all off!

Opening my Diego Dalla Palma Lipstick-Blogmas Day 18

Friday, 18 December 2015


So far, my M&S Beauty Advent Calendar has certainly lived up to my high expectations (although I'm yet to receive my Pixi Glow Tonic or my Stila Lip Glaze, which were typically the products I wanted the most!) A particular product that I was impressed with though, was the Diego Dalla Palma Lipstick in the shade il rosettto..l

Although I have heard of Diego Dalla Palma, I have never really looked into the brand let alone bought one of their products. These lipsticks are meant to cost £15.50, so it think it's amazing to receive one in an advent calendar that alone cost £25!


The first thing that struck me upon opening my lipstick was the shade itself. Boy, is it a beautiful colour?! The rosey pink is like nothing that I own, and I have to say that I cannot wait to use it as I feel it will look nice with all manner of makeup looks. 

The actual lip bullet itself is also pretty cute-it's shade, style and colour theme are also very different from any other lip product I currently own. 


Opening the little box of this lipstick kind of reminded me of opening up my MAC lipsticks in months gone by, which amped up my excitement even more. What's more, even though I have no idea what this lipstick will look like on (with regards to its consistency and finish), I am still super excited to try it out over the next few days!

Do you own a lipstick by Diego Dalla Palma? If so, let me know what you think of it in the comments below!

P.S. You can find this lipstick and others on the M&S website!

New Year's Resolutions?-Blogmas Day 17

Thursday, 17 December 2015

Hello again,

Recently, I wrote a post detailing my blogging goals for next year, and today I will be continuing with that as right now it is Blogmas so I am posting every day! However, today my goals won't just be focussed on blogging, and will instead be based on my general life aims (sort of New Year's resolutions!)





Do well in my GCSE's-this is probably one of the most important things for me to keep to in 2016, as when it comes down to it GCSE's are a big deal! I know when you move on to a-levels, they become a distant memory but right now I would love to get the best grades I can possibly achieve so I keep doors open for all sorts of future careers. Getting a's and a*'s would be fantastic, but as long as I try my hardest I think I will be happy with my grades!


Grow my blog-after blogging for only a few months and doing quite well, (as well as making lots of new friends), I really want to continue with expanding my blog next year. It would be lovely to get lots more views on my blog, as well as gain more followers on my social media (Twitter and Instagram) because my blog is something that I am clearly very passionate about!

Try new foods-I am a very picky eater, and although I do get a little bit more adventurous each year I want to continue with trying new bits and bobs next year. Some foods, I just tend to turn my nose up at without really trying-so it would be nice to actually give them a go as I may end up liking them!

Don't stress out as much-I do get anxious and stressed out extremely easily, but next year I want to try and stop that. The pressure will definitely be on with all of my exams, but to get away from that I will continue to blog as it is a great outlet for when I am stressed, and try other things like baking and sports that will help me relax.

Although these aims are quite varied, I do believe that they are realistic and not something that I will give up on in a few days. Hopefully, I will stick to them throughout next year (and the end of this year also) and I may have to update you all later on to explain how well I'm doing...

Thank you for Reading,

Is MAC Worth the Hype?-Blogmas Day 16

Wednesday, 16 December 2015

MAC. It's the makeup brand that seemingly everyone loves or lusts for. I, like many others, spend a lot of my time dreaming about all of their beautiful lipstick shades and eyeshadow colours-but when it comes down to it, are their products actually worth the hype?

Today I thought I would talk about two of my lesser hyped products, and explain to you all whether or not I actually think they are both worth their price tag..


Firstly, there's the Mac Blusher. For me this was pretty much an impulse buy-it just looked like a beautiful colour and because it's Mac I just went straight in for the purchase. It definitely wasn't cheap though at £18, but I didn't really think about that as I simply expected the product itself to be fantastic.

I'm not sure whether, after actually using this blusher, that I would now describe it as fantastic. Although the I love it greatly and use it almost every day, I find that it isn't as pigmented as I first thought it would be and doesn't really light my cheeks up as much as I would have liked. But, like I say I do use it most days when I go to school because of its subtlety; however I'm not sure I would repurchase it because I do own cheaper, drugstore blushers that are a lot more vibrant.


My second Mac product in question today is the Eyeshadow Quad. This was in fact one of my summer purchases from the Cosmetics Company Outlet Store and was around £12 instead of £18 (I think). Just like my blusher, I use this product most days when I go to school, but unlike my blusher I think I will definitely repurchase this item!

There is a half and half split of matte and shimmer shades in this quad, and each and every shade seems to just light up the eye. All four build up well together to create a lovely, shimmery plum eye look-this is something I particularly love about this product, as it creates a look that I wouldn't normally create with any of my other shadow products!

So you see, Mac like many other brands offer products that you both love and hate. Sometimes it seems that they will live up to their worldwide reputation as a high quality makeup brand, and then sometimes it's seems like other cheaper products take the biscuit...

But I have to say, this will definitely not stop me from purchasing Mac in the future and continuing to be a Mac fan-even if some of their products aren't my favourite, their lipsticks are still insane!!!

Olivia xo

P.S. You can find both Mac products mentioned on the John Lewis Website.

The Christmas Tag-Blogmas Day 15

Tuesday, 15 December 2015

Hello,

Recently I was tagged by Lydia (from http://mydaisychaincloset.blogspot.co.uk) to do the Christmas Tag, and seeing as I adore Christmas time I thought I would give it a go!


1. When do you start getting excited about Christmas?
I love love love Christmas, but I don't really get into the spirit until about October which is when festive gifts start arriving in the shops and I start to think about what I would like for Christmas!

2. Do you still have advent calendars?
Yes!!! I think I probably always will as I just love them and how excited they make me feel during the build up to Christmas Day! This year I have a couple of chocolate ones, and also a beauty one from M&S that I have talked about in a couple of previous posts.

3. What are your favourite Christmas Films?
This is such a difficult one for me as I don't really have a favourite one. I do like Home Alone 1 and 2 and some of the Santa Claus movies. Scrooged is one I watched pretty recently too, and I like that as well as Frozen (if that's classed as a Christmassy film???)

4. Do you have any funny Christmas memories?
No not really, I do love Christmas but I have to say that all the family get-togethers and meals tend to blend into one in my memory.

5. Talk us through your typical Christmas Day?
When I was little I used to wake up super early, but now it's normally at like 7:30. I go downstairs with my mum and dad and we all open our presents before just chilling out, eating breakfast and looking through what we have received. After that, I tend to get ready to go to my nans or wherever we are going for dinner (this year I'm staying at home and having a relaxing day though). Obviously, later we all eat our dinner, then play board games and watch tv for the rest of the day!

6. What do you eat for Christmas Dinner?
My family have a traditional dinner but I don't because I'm not a fan of roast dinner. Therefore, I normally just have some chicken or something, then pick and choose the other vegetables and bits I want.

7. Do you have any Christmas traditions?
Not really, but we do put the decorations and tree up on the first weekend of December every year!

8. Which are your favourite Christmas songs?
Some of you will probably laugh, but I am partial to 'Merry Christmas Everybody' by Shakin Stevens-a bit cheesy, I know, but that's what Christmas is all about!

9. What is the best Christmas present you ever received?
I don't know really because I get really good presents every year! 

10.Real or fake christmas tree?
Fake, but it's really little and cute because we have a pretty small living room!

Well, there are my answers to the Christmas Tag! I now tag anyone who loves Christmas to have a go at this post as well :-)
