Christmas Meme

A couple of weeks ago I was tagged in a Christmas Meme. 
The meme was first thought up by Makeup Pixi3.
Q1. What's your favourite thing about Christmas?
Everything. Predictable I know. I love the decorations, sorting out presents, wrapping, food, and now the magic which has returned due to my two gorgeous boys now being involved.

Q2. What's your favourite make up look for the festive season?
I tend to wear thick mascara on a daily basis and will occasionally wear foundation and concealer, and a new favourite of bright red lipstick. Christmas Day is usually treated as if it was a night out (with family of course) and I will wear a little more than usual (eyeshadow, which I used to wear everyday) and will incorporate glitter in some form.

Q3. Real or fake tree?
We had real until the boys came along and then went for a fake one and had nothing but trouble with it. This year we got it down from the loft and it was broken in a number of places, despite only being 2 years old, so we bought a real one and I'm glad we did.

Q4. Giving presents or receiving them?
Honestly, BOTH!! I love giving presents but I also love receiving presents. I think anyone who says they don't is fibbing.

Q5. Do you open your presents Christmas morning or evening?
Morning! I've never understood why people would wait until the evening.

Q6. Handmade Christmas cards or bought?
A mixture. We have bought ones for certain people and the boys (well Charles this year) will make one for certain family members.

Q7. What's your favourite Christmas film?
The Polar Express without a doubt. Last year I watched 'It's a Wonderful Life' for the first time and really enjoyed it too.

Q8. What's your favourite Christmas food?
Boxing Day. Cold meats, pickles, cheese (Stilton come to mama!!), hot bread, pate, olives, Pringles. Oh I can't wait!!
