RE-BRANDING & The Christmas Tag

Hello lovely people,

I'M BACK!

It has been a really long time since I last blogged..and I've really missed it. I'm not going to make excuses because that's boring but basically I was busy etc. etc. and blogging wasn't a priority.

BUT NOW IT IS. 

Over the last THREE YEARS (whew..) as I have changed and matured (ha), my interests have too, so I'm in the process of re-branding itsmeniamhalice into something more suited to the present version of me.

Don't panic! I'm still a sucker for beauty and fashion but my focus will be shifting to lifestyle and including new topics such as body positivity, feminism, poetry and mental health. All good things I promise.

Since it's been quite a while, let's reacquaint ourselves with a November treat: The Christmas Tag. Oh boy. If there was ever a tag that was made for me, it is this one. My dream job is to be a full-time Christmas elf - I'm not even kidding. Credits go to Morgan at The Enthusiast for the questions.

1.What is your favourite Christmas film?
I'm torn between the Polar Express (v. nostalgic) and Elf (v. amazing).

2. Have you ever had a White Christmas?
Yes, a few times. One year the snow was so thick I made an igloo which my little brother crawled inside (only for a moment or two because my god it was cold).

3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
At my grandma's house with family. I love looking around her village at all the Christmas lights.

4. What is your favourite Christmas song?
Oh wow. This changes pretty much every day. At the moment I can't stop listening to an amazing version of Baby it's Cold Outside by dodie and Lewis Watson. Gives me chills every time (pun intended).

5. Do you open any present on Christmas Eve?
I have been known to feel presents (not in a weird way), hunt out secret presents and tear at the wrapping paper to get a sneaky peek. So far, I've never oficially opened a present until Christmas Day.

6. Can you name all of Santa's Reindeer?
Obviously.

7.What holiday traditions are you most looking forward to this year?
Eating unnatural amounts of chocolate.

8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
This year the tree is an artistic 'creation'. A dead twig/tree painted white and then decorated. Yep. So it's real but also dead and covered in paint.

9.What is your favourite holiday food/sweet treat?
Do selection boxes count? Just because I feel about 5 years old when eating them.

10. Be honest, do you like giving or receiving gifts better?
Giving. 100%. I really like the planning involved in choosing and wrapping a gift for someone else.

11.What's the best Christmas gift you've ever received?
Probably my teddy bear onesie because I kind of live in it.

12.What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
Probably New York. Or Norway.

13. Are you a pro present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
Definitely pro..present wrapping should be on my C.V. 

14. Most memorable holiday moment?
Probably watching Arthur Christmas with my grandparents.

15. What made you realize the truth about Santa?
The truth being that his magic continues all through your life as adults get to become Santas too? 

16. Do you make New Year's Resolutions? Do you stick to them?
meh

17.What makes the holidays special for you?
the lights, the trees, the smells, the presents, the movies, the food, the good deeds, the music, the food, the fire, the clothes, the food, the glitter, the magic, the food....
