A/W 16 Games I Am Excited About

I am a nerd, gaming is my thing and since moving into the house I have realised how much I love playing games. They’re something I get to mong out in front of and just relax. It’s also nice to be able to take out some frustration and stress on them.

My current favourite to play right now is LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which I am currently trying to complete 100%, because I’m sad like that.

Alongside that I love playing Minecraft with Dane, as well as our friends online. Can never go wrong with that game!

But with so many games announced at E3 this year, I thought I would put together a post today about which games I am excited about for the remained of the year.

  • South Park: The Fractured But Whole – Release date 06.12.16 – £43.99 (link)

I love South Park, no denying that! I never got to play the first game The Stick Of Truth when it first came out but eventually my old job at Costa gifted me this and I was so hooked onto it. I even completed 100%, woohoo! So when Trey Parker and Matt Stone announced this a year ago I was so damn excited! Over the past year it has been developed and finally given the end of the this year the launch date. I won’t be waiting until Christmas to get this, it’ll be pre ordered a week before it’s due out. I’m so damn excited!

  • World of Final Fantasy – Release date 28.10.16 – £33.99 (link)

I’ve never been a gamer who can say, “OMG I LOVE all the Final Fantasy games!” Until 2011/2012 I had never played any of them and I’m not going to lie when I say that I don’t feel like I lost out. I’ve always been interested in the stories behind the games, but whenever I’ve played them I’ve never been a huge fan of the game play. Recently when I tried the demo for Final Fantasy XV I fell in love with the new game play. Due to being excited for this game (which will be mentioned on this post!) I started to get excited for other Final Fantasy games. This one included. I mean for a start the characters are so adorable looking, very kawaii and right up my street! All I know about it is you play as two twins who go to a different world from their own and fight, etc. Just all the chibi characters are adorable and pulled at my heart.

  •  Final Fantasy XV – Release date 29.11.16 – £42.00 (link)

This has so far been the only Final Fantasy game I have actually liked the look of and played feeling excited about too. I don’t know if it’s because the game play has changed with this game (according to a lot of people I know who love FF it has…) which I didn’t realise to be honest, but it is definitely due to said chance that the controls don’t seem as complex as they did before. The demo was a joy to play too, especially the cute little fox that you follow around throughout. The story just looks awesome too with the brothers and their emo alternative looks. I won’t be in a rush to pick this up, but I hope to eventually!

  • Detroit: Become Human – Release date TBC – £46.00 (link)

I can not express how damn excited I am for this game! I’m a massive fan of all David Cage’s games including Fahrenheit, Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls so this one HAS to be a part of my collection. It’s a very interesting concept revolving around robots and them becoming human, instead of just doing as we humans say. The trailers are beautiful and David Cage hasn’t let us down again! There have been so many trailers leading up to this game, so I advice you to YouTube search for them if you wish to see more. I hope this gets a release date for this year!

  • The Last Guardian – Release date 28.10.16 – £44.00 (link)

This game has been in the works for almost ten years now and it’s amazing that it is finally going to be released! Do you know what though? I waited so damn long for this game that I’m not as excited for it as I thought I was going to be… It won’t stop me from buying it though as it’s a game I am still excited to play. I guess it’s just a shame that it took so long to get it where it is today. The creature in the game is what has sold out to everyone is you ask me. The graphics of the game don’t look that amazing in all fairness, which is something a lot of people have been commenting on with this game. However this doesn’t bother me, as it still looks like a lovely game to play.

  • Mafia III – Release date 07.10.16 – £42.00 (link)

I like the Mafia games and I felt that the second one was ignored quite a bit due to Grand Theft Auto 4 coming out, which I thought was a bit of a shame! However now Mafia III is out and there isn’t any GTA game to compete with! I love the look of Mafia III too as it’s set in a period I love as well as in a part of America I would love to visit one day. The plot is very strong and I know I will love playing this game. I get a bit anxious playing games like this as I worry of shoot ups in missions and such that I won’t get very far as I’m not that great at playing games like this. However I am hoping that this game will help me gain some confidence as I really do want to get it.

  • Pokemon Moon – Release date 32.11.16 – £32.00 (link)

This is one of the games I am super excited about… Don’t think I need to explain why really. It’s Pokemon and that’s all you need to know! 😛 No I kid! I am excited for this, it’ll be cool to see what they’ve done differently with this game like the new Pokemon, the aloha evolution for older Pokemon such as Vulpix, Raichu, etc. I’ve also heard that you don’t battle at gyms or in the elite four anymore either, which will be odd! I’ll be getting this the day it comes out and probably playing it until I finish. I hope Dane will get it to play with me too, and if not I’ll buy it him for Christmas. 😉

So that was the list of games I am super excited about for 2016! I am going to be so poor by the end of the year I swear to God. 😛

What games are you excited about coming out this year? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time take care all and I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Leighton Denny I Am Goddess High Performance Nail Colour Collection – Review

Although these are from Leighton Denny’s autumn/winter 2015 collection I recently picked them up from the M&S sale, as they were super cheap! I managed to pick up three, even though I only really wanted one or two. I will already state that online none of these shades are left to buy, but you may be in luck in store, like I was with two of these shades. You can still pick these up as well on the official Leighton Denny website (link here) but they’re still at the full retail price of £11.00.

So, on with the review!

Thanks to my mom, I discovered Leighton Denny a couple of years ago, but I haven’t as of yet owned any of his polishes until now, and boy was it worth the wait!

These are some of the nicest nail polishes I own, due to the quality of the nail polish, it’s lasting time, and of course the price! But I’ll go into detail about all those in this review.

 photo Photo 17-03-2016 10 45 42 am_zpstchtvytd.jpg

L-R : Aphrodite’s Love, Queen Hera, Athena Love

I picked up three of six shades from the collection:

Aphrodite’s Love – An olive cream with a metallic duo-chrome finish.

Queen Hera – A metallic gold with chrome finish.

Athena Divine – A deep, midnight blue with metallic shimmer.

For £11.00 you’re paying for 12ml bottle, with a high performance nail colour. I found with all of these I only needed two coats max to get a really good pay off. All the shades are really pigmented, which I was pleased about.

Lasting time on these was amazing too! Aphrodite’s Love is currently on my toes, and has been the past week. It’s not chipped at all, not even during my pole fitness classes! Which is great to be honest. When I wore Queen Hera all weekend it lasted throughout, and didn’t chip once. Again, I was really pleased about it. I haven’t had the chance to wear Athena Divine yet, but I’m going to wear it next weekend and see how the lasting time is, but if it’s anything like the other two shads, it’ll last ages.

So here are some swatches of the polishes themselves!

Aphrodite’s Love:

One coat

Queen Hera:

Athena Divine:

One coat

 photo Athena Divine 3_zpspxs7imtx.jpg

Two coats

I have shown all the polishes with both one, and two coats, just so you can see the pigmentation!

My personal favourite has to be Athena Divine. Like the name, it is a divine colour and I’ve never seen anything like it. I can’t wait to rock this when I next have my holiday from work (FYI in a months time!) as well as when it’s mine and Dane’s anniversary in June, which will soon be here!

It’s a shame these are limited edition nail polishes, as they are truly stunning!

Will you be trying to pick these up in the M&S sale? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a great weekend!

Perfect Berry Shades For Winter – Guest Post

When Natalee said she was looking for some guest writers for her blog while she was on holiday, I jumped at the chance. Not only because she’s wonderful, but because it’s nice to write about something not related to my mental health! I write about my life with borderline personality disorder, you see – and it can get heavy at times with such a serious topic at hand. So it’s a nice change to write about something fun! Plus, I LOVE MAKE-UP. I really do. So I wanted to take this opportunity to write about it!

But first, a little story. I got married a few weeks ago, and my colour scheme involved rich berry tones along with purples and ivory. November is a month of change with autumn going into winter, the crisp colours of browns and golds going into plums and silvery whites, and being the totally non-traditional woman that I am, I was never going to be a traditional bride. I wanted colour to be a part of my look, I didn’t want to be all dressed in white. So, I took a part of my colour scheme and brought it into my look for the day… which brings me to this post!

As well as berry coloured shoes and sash on my dress to go with the berry coloured buttons in my handmade bouquet, I decided to be bold and wear a berry-toned lipstick. It wasn’t an easy decision. Here, I’m going to give you a rundown of my top five berry-toned lipsticks for winter, ending with the one I ended up wearing for my big day! So, without further ado…

Image taken from MAC Cosmetics website

  1. MAC lipstick in Rebel – £15.50 from maccosmetics.co.uk

I have Natalee to thank for this classic making its way into my lipstick collection. On the site, it’s described as a ‘midtonal cream plum’ and it is seriously flattering on any skin tone. It does look more purple-toned on me, which wasn’t quite right for the wedding, but it did end up being worn by my bridesmaid! The Husband calls it my ‘going to war’ lipstick, as I always seem to wear it when I need that bit of confidence to get me through anything – and it seriously works. It is gorgeous, it feels amazing on the lips, and it smells heavenly and lasts for ages even without primer or liner. I usually have to remove it with baby oil as it always leaves a stain! Really worth the money and definitely a staple for the make-up bag.

Image taken from Rimmel London Cosmetics website

  1. Rimmel The Only 1 lipstick in One of a Kind – £6.99 from Boots

The first ever lipstick I bought back in college was Rimmel Lasting Finish in Amethyst Shimmer. It probably would’ve looked fine on me, had I not insisted on the dark eye make-up along with it. Rimmel are touting this as a ‘lipstick revolution’ and while I usually guffaw at such statements, they have a right to brag. The quality is astounding, especially given the low cost and brand. It felt amazing on the lips, really creamy and soft, but it lasted a lot longer than expected from such a comfortable lipstick. The colour is a much more red-toned berry than Rebel, and I definitely will be rocking it over the winter months!

Image taken from Max Factor website

  1. Max Factor Colour Elixir lipstick in Mulberry – £7.99 from Boots

I’m a huge fan of Max Factor. I swear by their mascara and foundation primer, and when I discovered their Colour Elixir lipsticks, I fell in love. Another creamy lipstick with added benefits – ‘A blend of 60% emollients, conditioners and antioxidants including vitamin E’ according to the Boots website. Mulberry is a vampy, dark shimmery shade that says “I’m here to party, and I will get off with that bloke I’ve fancied for ages because I am a goddess of the night.”

…or something like that, anyway.

With the added pampering benefits for your lips, I would definitely recommend it for the winter months when we could all do with a little help against the elements. And Christmas parties. Go get ‘em, tiger.

Image taken from Clinique website

  1. Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Love Pop – £16 from Boots

There is a shade of this called Berry Pop which is very dark, which I imagine will be stunning for the season, but looked far too dark on me. The selling point of this lipstick is that you don’t need to wear primer underneath for it to stay on. A nice idea… but I didn’t think it worked out too well. However, with primer and liner, it upped the game. Love Pop is a soft, pink-toned berry which gives a very romantic look and is extremely wearable. It also feels amazing. I am a fan of this product, so much so that I have since purchased two more shades!

And in the number one spot, which made it to my face on my wedding day…

Image taken from Feel Unique website

  1. Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon in Napa Vineyard – £8.99 from feelunique.com

PERFECT. WEDDING. COLOUR. I have seen people raving about these little crayons on reddit, and I can see why! The colour payoff is phenomenal, it feels just like a lip balm, and the finish is a very fashionable matte. It went perfectly with the colours we had, and it made me feel so glamourous and just finished the look in the way I wanted it to. The only downside is that it wasn’t very long lasting, even with primer and liner, but you know what? It looked perfect and I hope in the final photos you’ll be able to see just how much it made my final look.

So, there you have it! Thanks Nat for letting me write this for you, and I hope your readers go out and get their berry on – seriously, it’s a colour that looks good on everyone, and will never let you down.

If you’re interested in my blog about life with borderline personality disorder (BPD), visit me at http://allmouthnospoons.wordpress.com. I can also be found tweeting nonsense at http://twitter.com/MouthAndSpoons.

A huge thanks to Claire for writing this post up for me on such short notice! It’s the first of many guest posts that will be on my blog over the next month, which is pretty damn exciting! I love all the lipsticks she spoke about, especially Rebel which is by far my favourite lipstick. Which shades did you love? Make sure to leave Claire some love in the comments down below!

Until next time all, take care and see you when I’m back from holiday (I’ve officially been here a day now!)

Disney x Vans 2015 – 101 Dalmatians Collection!

If there is a collection I am super excited for, it’s the Disney 101 Dalmatians collection that Vans will be bringing out this fall! I squealed when I saw this collection being announced last week and I have my eye on pretty much everything from it.

As well as 101 Dalmatians, Vans will also be releasing The Jungle Book AND Alice in Wonderland collections too. Do I hear excited squeals? I think I do!

Vans have previously worked with Disney to bring out a collection in the spring and summer which included Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Disney Princesses, as well as Disney Villains. Good eh?

Vans have been bringing out some amazing collaborations the past couple of years, the last one being Star Wars, and the one before being Marvel. As well as that they have also teamed up with Iron Maiden and The Beatles to bring out some cool collections.

I remember however when the first Disney collection was coming out, and I hoped so damn much that 101 Dalmatians would be included, so when it was revealed and there was nothing of the sort involved, I was gutted. So you can imagine my joy when this was announced, and it has been nothing but be what I imagined!

I am excited to share with you all the collection that has been revealed so far, and how damn excited I am for it. I was like this when Adventure Time teamed up with Dr Martens, and I’m just as happy with Vans and Disney bringing out this collection… If not more excited!

Image taken from hypebeast.com

This is the teaser image that Vans leaked just before the actual press release about the collection itself. I didn’t see this until after the press release, but isn’t it just so cute??? Little dalmatian chewing on a Vans slip on? Be still my beating heart…

As you can see the collection is pretty red, white, and black which was pretty obvious to be honest. There will be two variations of shoes out and whilst both look awesome, I’m opting for the red pair which will look cool all year around! I am hoping to get these before I go on holiday to wear throughout that. The high top pair look cool too and if this happen to go cheap enough in future sales, I may have to pick them up…

Alongside the classic Van’s trainers, of course there are some apparel and accessories with this collection which I am so happy Vans are bringing out, which as you can see are just as adorable as the shoes.

There are two backpacks coming out, one which is black with a repeated pattern of the dalmatians on it, as well as a red one with cute little pictures of dalmatians on, I’m loving the latter myself as it isn’t so in your face as the black one. But both are just as cute! There is also a hat sharing the same pattern as the black bag, this isn’t really my thing but I’m sure loads of people will be rocking it! I’ve also heard rumours around that there will be a keyring coming out, but I haven’t seen this on any of the promotional images yet.

With the apparel there is a raglan tee, as well as a sweatshirt that I both want! You can never say no to cute t-shirts and such like this, and me being a huge 101 Dalmatians fan, I would totally rock these throughout the year. As well as those there will also be some cute socks being released, and by the look of it some boyfriend boxers, very cute!

I think out of the three collections coming out that this one is the best one. It’s just so adorable and cute, and fans of all years will fall in love with it.

Sadly I don’t know a date that the new Vans Disney collection will come out in the UK, but if it’s anything like America I can imagine at the end of October, if not in November at some point. Perfect timing though with Christmas just around the corner!

I apologise for not talking about The Jungle Book and Alice in Wonderland collections, but I don’t really have much interest for those. There are plenty of blogs and websites around talking about those if you just Google though!

So, do you have your eyes on the next Disney X Vans collection? If so, which one? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you had a great weekend!

Winter Makeup Look – Guest Post!

Hi everyone! It’s Mali from Maliberry Makeup.  When Nat asked me to write a few guest posts for her while she’s away, I tried to think of things that might be new to her readers.  I know that when it comes to makeup Nat only really wears lipstick, so I thought it might be a bit of a change of pace to share a full face look with you.
I’m a bit of an oddball as for me, green is a colour I wear year round – it’s my version of neutrals! However, come Christmas/winter time, it becomes much more acceptable to wear jewel-toned shades so I hope some aspects of this look will be wearable to everyone.  Click the links to see my reviews of every product mentioned!
I’m all about bright lime and neon greens usually, but when the weather gets colder I find myself reaching for deeper shades.  After priming, I lay down a base of Urban Decay Graffiti which is one of my all time favourite shades.  I deepened the outer corner and crease with Shiro Cosmetics Lingered in Twilight.  I brightened up the inner corners using MAC Lucky Green, and added some colour to the waterline using MAC Wondergrass.  I finished with a flick of Inglot Liquid Eyeliner in shade 34 and lots of mascara!
I like my eyes bold so I stripped back the rest of my makeup.  I filled in my brows with my Sleek Eyebrow Stylist in Dark.  I applied my Bourjois Cream Blush in Rose Tender on my cheeks and added some subtle colour to my lips using MAC Sweetie 🙂
  If all-over green is too much for you, you could just stick with liner and a pop of colour on the inner corners, or opt for gold, purple or crimson which also work well during winter.  Or, stick with neutrals! Makeup should be about making yourself happy, whether that involves wearing lots of colour, neutral shades or none at all.
I hope you all had a wonderful festive season and that you liked this makeup look! Thanks Nat for inviting me to write a guest post 🙂 If you’d like to see more makeup looks from me, you can follow my blog using the buttons below.

The Winter Tag!

Image taken from weheartit.com

There’s nothing better than Winter and as today is the official start of winter I thought I would take part in The Winter Tag! I know it was only last week I was doing The Christmas Tag but who cares! Tags are fun and as it’s Christmas then I shall do as I want. 😛

I wasn’t tagged to do this but I thought I’d take part in it anyway as it looked like a nice one to do. I found this over on Charlotte’s blog – Makeup by Candlelight. Go check out her blog, she’s lovely! I’ll mention at the end of the tag who I’ll be tagging myself to go this too.

So, on with the questions!

What are your favourite things about winter?

Has to be wrapping up warm in your favourite coat and jumper, with some boots and a chunky scarf. As well as that I love going into the countryside during the winter to venture around the woods and take walks. I’m really excited about doing this with my boyfriend this year!

What is your favourite winter outfit?

I have so many to be honest but one that’s standing out right now are my wine skinny fit jeans, black slim fit t-shirt, my boyfriends grey jumper, my Dr Martens boots or my Chelsea boots and either my brown hounds tooth coat or my navy military coat.

What is your favourite winter food?

I’d like to say soup but I don’t really cook and eat soup all that much! Definitely something comforting like a jacket potato with cheese or garlic bread. Something stodgy but so amazingly good! I think I’ll say soup is fast becoming a favourite, it just warms you up after a really cold day and it’s healthy too.

Favourite winter drink?

Definitely mint hot chocolate! Red Bush tea has worked its way up there since NaNoWriMo too.

What is your dream way to spend a Winter’s day?

There’s a couple. Walking around a part of the countryside with someone and taking in the crisp winter scenery and air, another being to stay in bed all day whilst looking at the cold outside and just have a lazy day with vast amounts of tea and hot chocolate. Also The German Market has proven to be a really nice one too, just to walk around and look at the stalls.

How do you like to do your make-up in the Winter?

Well as I don’t wear a full face (just the lips) I LOVE wearing red and dark vampy shades for winter. I think it just looks gorgeous and somewhat warming. I’m wearing Illamasqua’s Magnetism loads at the moment (review here)!

What are you hoping Santa brings you?

What I REALLY want is a 2DS with Pokemon X but I know I won’t get that. I’m really wanting a Roxy hoodie I spotted with my boyfriend a couple of weeks back. I tried it on and fell in love but at £69.99 I really can’t afford to splurge right now. 😦 Other than that some Yankee Candles would be nice and maybe some new jeans as I think I could do with some! Anything with foxes on too, I’m obsessed!

What are the first three things that remind you of Winter?

Hot chocolate, the colour burgundy and pub food.

What is your favourite Winter song?

Favourite winter song? Mmm I dunno if I have one, well not one I can think of anyway! Possibly something by Evanescence to be honest with you but which song? I don’t know, most of Fallen and The Open Door seeing as I got then both during the winter season when they first came out.

 What is your favourite Winter memory?

Walking around The German Market recently in both Birmingham and Coventry. It was lovely to just walk around with my boyfriend and our friends discussing all sorts and cupping our warm and cold drinks. When my boyfriend and I walked around Coventry late Sunday afternoon it was somewhat relaxing even though everyone was rushing around us getting their Christmas shopping done and all we were thinking about was how to kill three hours.I can’t wait for more winter memories with my boyfriend, I just love being in his company more than ever right now.

What is your favourite Winter scent?

I answered this on The Christmas Tag so I’ll just copy and paste my answer here:

Oh this is a tough one, I have so many to choose from! Literally have my perfume box next to me so I can sniff away at all my perfumes! I can’t pick one, but since purchasing them the ones I have found myself going towards during the winter have been Thierry Mugler’s Alien EDP and Chanel’s Chance EDP. I also love Diesel’s Loverdose EDP too but as I’m running out I haven’t been able to use it, which in turn makes me rather sad. Gucci by Gucci also reminds me of Christmas time as my Mom gave it to me the night of the only Christmas party I attended when I went to university. It’s a gorgeous smell and definitely one for winter time.

Finish this sentence… If I could have one wish this Christmas it would be…

To be honest I really don’t know. I just want to have a good Christmas this year with no stress, upset, falling out or arguing with people, which in all honesty happens every year! I really want to spend it with my boyfriend this year, as I want our first Christmas together to be a memorable one. As well as this I want the present I’m getting for him to be one of the best he’s ever had. :’) So I wish for a wonderful Christmas as in all honesty every year I have felt really quite low. I don’t want that anymore.

So that was The Winter Tag! Did you enjoy reading it?

I really did enjoy doing this tag and therefore I tag ALL OF YOU to take part in it!

If you do have a go at this tag please comment below linking me to your post or even drop me a tweet over at MayBeeCoffee! 😀

Anyhoo I’m shattered, so I’m off to bed. I’m writing this tag up at 1am, deary me.

Take care all and here’s too a wonderful and very cold winter!

The Christmas Tag!

Image taken from weheartit.com

As it’s only 12 days now until Christmas, I thought I would take part in the Christmas tag! I wasn’t specifically tagged to do this post but after reading Amy’s Christmas tag she encouraged fellow bloggers to take part!

I’m not all that Christmassy (as this post explains) but since December starting I’ve been trying to get as festive as possible! I have my second EVER Christmas meal on Saturday evening which I’m super excited about.

So now I have a cup of caramel coffee (not from work, sadly) and a yummy candle burning, let’s get on with the tag!

What is your favourite Christmas film?

Gosh I really don’t know… Probably the Home Alone films. I remember watching Home Alone as a kid and laughing my arse off! Then Home Alone 2 when I was younger and I loved it so much, it was the reason behind me wanting to go to New York, which I of course still wish to do. Although not many like Home Alone 3, I love it just as much as the first two as I find it hilarious. Think I might watch them all over the weekend, I know last Sunday Home Alone was on TV  but I missed it, sad times.

FYI I just Google searched Home Alone and I found this YouTube video. It’s so damn cute and has just fueled my want for a pug puppy! I want a white one so I could call him/her Marshmallow. ^_^

What is your favourite festive colour?

Mmm this is a tough one… This year it’s definitely green, like a wine bottle green shade. That and wine red. I now sound like an alcoholic! I’m liking a bit of red too this year but it’s definitely dark green and burgundy shades. They just look great together as well as with other colours likes navy, black and grey, although those are technically shades. Christmas wise I’ve always loved blue, silver and white as it reminds me of snow, although red and green is nice too.

Do you open your gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?

Neither, we don’t open our gifts in the house until Christmas Day afternoon-evening time. One time we didn’t open anything until Boxing Day. We don’t do anything traditionally at all and a lot of people find that weird.

What is your favourite Christmas scent?

Oh this is a tough one, I have so many to choose from! Literally have my perfume box next to me so I can sniff away at all my perfumes! I can’t pick one, but since purchasing them the ones I have found myself going towards during the winter have been Thierry Mugler’s Alien EDP and Chanel’s Chance EDP. I also love Diesel’s Loverdose EDP too but as I’m running out I haven’t been able to use it, which in turn makes me rather sad. Gucci by Gucci also reminds me of Christmas time as my Mom gave it to me the night of the only Christmas party I attended when I went to university. It’s a gorgeous smell and definitely one for winter time.

What is your favourite holiday drink?

Non alcoholic it has to be a mint hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows! But otherwise it’s a Bailey’s hot chocolate or coffee. Something warming and I tend to have these when I’m out of an evening. I want to try Amaretto hot chocolate and Jägermeister hot chocolate too!

Candy Canes or Gingerbread Men?

Gingerbread Men definitely win this one! Candy Cane’s are okay but I find they’re prettier to look at than eat, whereas Gingerbread Men win both, they’re cute to look at but so yummy to munch on.

What is your favourite Christmas song?

I really can’t say I have one, we have loads that play in work and some do stick out to me, two in particular but “Wonderful Christmastime” by Paul McCartney has always been one I’ve enjoyed singing along to, but since the age of 16 I’ve really liked singing along to is Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” which I heard God knows how many times last Friday at The German Market. Also I’ve heard this song I’ll be linking to below on YouTube and whilst it isn’t a famous song its beautiful and I MUST share!

Have you ever made a snowman?

I have done when I was a child but since then I really can’t recall going outside and making one. I prefer to leave the snow to settle and look beautiful and untouched, especially in my own back garden.

What is the most important thing to you about Christmas?

To be honest I really don’t know how to answer this because for as long as I can remember I haven’t really had a memorable Christmas. I guess about being happy that one day of the year alongside family, friends and loved ones.

So that’s the end of The Christmas Tag! Although she didn’t tag me, I want to thank Amy for doing this tag post as I wouldn’t have found it otherwise I don’t think. I really enjoyed doing it!

I tag everyone who reads this post, as well as my friend Poppy, who loves Christmas and I thought she would enjoy taking part in this tag! 😀

Make sure to comment or drop me a tweet at MayBeeCoffee if you take part in this tag! I want to see all your answers. 😀

Only 12 more days until Christmas, and I haven’t even finished my Christmas shopping! 😛

Take care all and I hope your week is going well.
