The Christmas Tag




I cannot believe it’s nearly Christmas.
I swear I blinked and a whole year flew by. I cannot believe the difference in a year from looking back at photos. My baby is no longer a baby but a very cheeky toddler.

So a little bit of an update, last week on Friday I decided to dye my beautiful ash blonde hair to this colour, I loved it at first but a week later it was washing out and became too bright for me. I’ve had it put dark again today. But I’m booked in for highlights in February, I know it’s going to take forever to get back to how it was. But change is good right?


1.      What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
Elf and Love actually!
Every year we also watch home alone, I think everyone does as they seem to hit our screens.

2.     Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Growing up in a Portuguese family, tradition is you have your meal on Christmas Eve and open presents once its 12.00am. But since we got married we decided we would open gifts on Christmas morning after breakfast. Especially now we have Emma we’ve opted to start our own traditions as a family.

3.     Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
Growing up in such a big family, memories are so many. But my favourite has to be flying home to Portugal to spend Christmas with my grandparents and godparents. I’ve sadly lost my grandparents. But my godparents have such a huge impact in my life. I love them to the moon and back they are truly my second parents. I got to spend Christmas with them when I was pregnant, they flew here to spend it with us and they wanted to see me pregnant. I remember one year I was SO happy, my parents got me a bike and I came down a hill full speed no idea how to stop and I went flying. (We live in the country side) it wasn’t an easy landing. We’re planning on taking Emma next year and spending Christmas with her godmother. (Her godmother is my Godparents daughter she’s like the sister I never had!)

4.     Favourite festive food?
This is a hard one. But I think CHOCOLATE.
Terrys Chocolate Orange.
(I have more than one)
I’m a terrible diabetic.

5.     Favourite Christmas gift?
I think growing up Christmas presents were so much more exciting. I’m trying to think back to see if anything stands out. I always got what I wanted, I wasn’t spoilt my parents always gave us what we wanted but also taught us how to wait and be hard working. One thing that stands out is a doll I had a sing-a-long type. I loved her so much! Her name was “Rosie” I think I drove my aunt insane with it because she took out batteries and she no longer worked. I was so heartbroken. I’d love to find one so I could give Emma one.

6.     Favourite Christmas scent?
Yankee candle winter glow.
I still had some left from last year it’s all used up now.
I also love Jo Malone “Lime Basil & Mandarin”

7.     Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Yup, we get together with family and have a traditional Portuguese Christmas meal.
It’s a cod dish, but my mum also makes octopus because me and my dad are obsessed with it! We stay up watching crappy films on T.V and this year we will be building Emma’s Christmas presents once she’s in bed.

8. What tops your tree?
An Angel

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
Probably a puppy, but we now have our Roxy. 

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
Family.
This has changed since I’ve become a mother. Before I would say presents. They still are great. But the best part for me is seeing the happiness on Emma’s face. Seeing her so excited and not knowing if she’s coming or going. Also spending time with my husband and getting to spoil him. He’s the one that probably deserves it more. He spends all year making sure me and Emma have EVERYTHING we could possibly need and want. Not once does he say no to us. So I love to spoil him and show just how grateful we are.
After all putting up with me and my bratty moments is a task.
