Christmas Tag!


I love Christmas time! It is the best part of the year. It also means Christmas Tag time! 



1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
This is a hard one. It would be between Grounded and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Movie. Grounded is a Disney film (I think) and it's about a group of children stuck at an airport on Christmas eve. It has all these warm and fuzzy feels, especially near the end. Rudolph the movie, I grew up watching. It's an animated movie of Rudolph's tale, but with a lot of singing included. It also has the classic song 'A Wonderful Christmas Time' by Paul McCartney. I love both of them so much I recently got them both on DVD, though Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Movie was hard to get. It was produced in 1998 and is considered rare...?

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
My family has only ever opened their presents on Christmas morning, mostly because my mother always left the wrapping until midnight. Instead, we all receive a new pair of pyjamas (and sometimes slippers). I don't know how it started but I love it, and can't wait for this years pyjamas.

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
I remember one year when I was super young, that I ate all the chocolate out of my advent calendar (oops!)

4. Favourite festive food?
Umm...can everything be an answer. My mother makes amazing pork sausage rolls, with Branston's pickle. I make cinnamon spiced cupcakes with apple chunks, and a crunchy meringue topping. Then there's Shloer and Pringles (I stock up on both about this time of year before the prices sky-rocket). Christmas is a very food orientated holiday in my house. My recent favourite has to be brussel sprouts with chopped roasted chestnuts~~!

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
Hands down, my Play-mobile Princess Castle when I was younger. It was a large, two level Play mobile (sort of like lego) castle, and it came with all the people and tiny furnishings. It's my favourite because my mother spent all of Christmas day building it, missing the Christmas dinner. She had to have a Chinese takeaway instead...sorry mum!

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Last year, I the Christmas Yankee Candle, 'Snowflake Cookie'; a yummy vanilla, baking smell. I only got it because it was their scent of the month and discounted, but it quickly became my Christmas scent. This year I have 'Cranberry Ice' and I really like that as well. It very fresh, but Christmassy.

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Other than my new pyjamas and movies? I usually spend most of Christmas Eve baking, especially if I'm doing a show stopper piece for that year. Honestly, they take forever.

8. What tops your tree?
I have a medium tree, but it sits on a table in front of my living room window. This means that it is impossible to put anything on the top of my tree. But, I do have a gold, glittery star that was originally supposed to go on the top.

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
The age long little girl's dream of a pony...so far fetched now that I think about it.

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you
EVERYTHING!!!

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips.
