My Christmas Decorations!

I don't know about you but I am SOOOOO excited for Christmas and nothing makes me feel more Christmassy than the Christmas tree and all the other decorations! I thought it would be nice to show you all my Christmas decorations but be warned, this is a very picture heavy blog post!

Here is the garland that sits on the window ledge. It's really cute. The candles are electric so I don't have to worry about blowing any candles out when I go to bed. Also, that's a picture of me on the left.
Here is the Christmas tree with all the presents underneath. This is my most favourite Christmas tree!

Here are some Christmas baubles. We went crazy on tree decorations this year but I love every single one.

Here are the beautifully wrapped presents under the tree! These presents are for all my family and sadly not all for me.

To end this post, I just want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

Review: Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama

 After using this mascara for around about a month, I think it is about time to write a review on it.
 I got this mascara at my local Superdrug for around £8. When I first started using this mascara, I noticed that the formula was quite wet which is great because there is nothing worse that having a dry mascara. The brush is thick and curved so each lash gets good coverage and a bit of a lift. Annoyingly, I find that it clumps my lashes quite a bit so I end up using a different mascara to unclump them. It does make my lashes really long and captures most of my lashes but it's quite messy and I end up having to use cotton buds to get the mascara off my eyelids. I'm not sold on this mascara so I probably wont be buying it again.

The Christmas Tag

Whoa! I can't believe its been nearly a month since my last post! Hopefully, I'll be finding myself writing more post this Christmas and in the new year. I decided to do this Christmas Tag because it's all I was reading once I had reconnected with the blogger world. So here we go ...

What is your favourite thing about Christmas?
My favourite thing about Christmas has to be the atmosphere that it brings with it. The weather may be waaaay below freezing, but could you imagine having a warm Christmas?? Shopping for presents in packed shopping centres, hunting for bargins, all the lovely decorations, hearing old school Christmas songs like The Pouges and East 17 on the radio, mince pies, wrapping paper, Christmas cards... The whole essence of Christmas is my favourite thing. The list is endless.

Real or fake tree?
Since I can remember, my family have always had fake Christmas trees apart from one year. I definitely prefer fake ones, they are much easier to keep and can come in all different shapes and sizes and you don't have to worry about hoovering up all the fallen needles. Below is a picture of the Christmas tree at my dads house. It's decorated beautifully and is my favourite Christmas tree.

Giving or receiving presents?
Well, who doesn't love receiving presents?! But I do really enjoy watching people open presents that I've put effort into thinking of, buying and wrapping up. Here's a picture of the presents I've bought for my lovely boyfriend.

Do you open your presents in the morning or evening?
Most definitely in the morning. I drive over to my dads and have breakfast there and open presents, then come back to my mums for Christmas dinner and to open more presents. I then tend to see my boyfriend and his family in the evening and open his presents. I don't think I could wait until the evening!!

Handmade or bought Christmas cards?
Bought Christmas cards. Handmade ones are a lovely idea but I just don't have the time or patience to handmake every single one.

What is your favourite Christmas film?
Well, I don't necessarily have a favourite Christmas film but I LOVE watching all the Christmas specials on TV. Sitting around watching them with the family eating from tins of biscuits and chocolates.

What is your favourite Christmas food?
My favourite Christmas food has to be mince pies! I eat them all the time in the winter. They are so delish!
