The Simply Christmas Tag 2017!

It’s less than a week til Christmas, and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do something Christmas-y. I’m sorry to you all if you were expecting me to do blogmas like I did last year, but I simply did not have it in me. I have been much too busy in my life and I knew that I would not be able to keep up!

While I enjoyed reading everyone who was doing blogmas this year, I simply kept with my regular schedule of posting twice a week! If you guys want, I can do a post of all my favorite blogmas posts this year! Let me know if you would be interested in that.


I was tagged by my good friend Melissa! You can check out her post here!

Have fun and I hope you have a wonderful festival period!


What’s your favourite thing coming into the festive period?
My favorite thing definitely has to be this hibernation period I go through. Throughout the summer I spend much less time at home then I do in the winter. While some people completely hate it, I really like to spend this time catching up on my reading and TV shows. I have to say that being in a period of time where listening to Christmas music is socially accepted is definitely a bonus! (I’m that person that can start listening to Christmas music starting April)

What’s your favourite Christmas-themed drink?
Hot Chocolate? I don’t really have one, sorry!

Do you have any Christmas or Winter related traditions?
I always spend Christmas day at my grandmother’s house. Now that she has Alzheimer’s and doesn’t cook or anything, we still spend most of the afternoon with the rest of the family at her house!

In regards to winter, I always try to do some snow related activity, such as sledding, skiing or snowboarding!

Christmas Jumpers- Yay or Nay?
yes yes yes! I am all for them. I look forward to wearing them for a few weeks, aha!

What are some of your favourite Christmas songs?
My favorites have to be “winter things” or “Santa tell me” by Ariana Grande! Oh, I definitely have to add “This Christmas” by Chris Brown! There are wayyy too many good ones!

If you could star in any Christmas film, which would it be, and why?
hmmm, maybe one of the home alone movies? I honestly have no clue!

If you could kiss any celebrity under the mistletoe this year, who would it be?
Definitely Maluma, my only celebrity crush! No extra thinking necessary, aha

Do you have a favourite Christmas scent? Candles, Fragrances etc
I love the scent of pine. It feels so christmas-y to me!

What is your favourite festive food?
I don’t think we really have any festive food? We do always make pernil for thanksgiving and Christmas Eve though, and I’m completely obsessed!

What is one extremely extravagant gift that you would love to, but probably never receive?
I don’t know, this is a tricky one, maybe an all expense paid trip! That would be a dream come true for me!


What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
Do you like to stay in your PJ’s or Dress up for Christmas?
I’m definitely a dress up kind of girl 🙂
What’s your favourite gift that you’ve given and your favourite that you’ve recieved?
One of the best gifts I have received has to be the Harry Potter book set that my aunt has gotten me. After that I have to say it was the laptop my father gave me two years ago! I’m still so in love with it, and it totally works like a charm 🙂



Cleia, Jen, Laura, Sophie, & Paul !


Do you prefer to give presents, or be given them?

I definitely love giving gifts out! I literally always go overboard, because I want to buy everything for the ones I love and care for!

My Questions:

What is your least favorite thing about the holidays?

What’s the best gift you’ve ever bought for someone?


If anyone I didn’t tag wants to do this tag, I hope you do and send me a comment with the link of the post you made! I hope you guys enjoyed getting to know me a little bit. Have a wonderful day/night. Keep enjoying the holidays! Sending you all love, strength, and positive vibes.

  1. Loved your answers! Christmas jumpers are always fun to wear and yes for the scent of pine – it’s the scent that feels the mooost christmassy to me, too! 🙂
    I hope you will have lovely holidays, Melina! Sending you all the love xx

    1. Thanks so much Marie! You too pretty girl 🙂 xx

  2. I love this tag! I will try and find time to upload this week because I haven’t really done any Christmas posts. I love the smell of pine. And I don’t have a Christmas themed drink either – unless a glass of champagne counts. Have you uploaded your newsletter by the way? I don’t think I received a notification this time. xxx

    1. I would love to read what you have to respond on this tag! And i did upload the newsletter the first week of december! You can get a link to download it on one of my last posts if you didn’t get it!

      1. Yeah I will go on the link. Usually it appears in my inbox, so I was waiting and waiting and then thought…what if she changed her mind? I will link you when I post the tag. 🙂 xx

        1. Of course not! What you wrote was beyond lovely and I was very proud of how this newsletter came out 💕💕

  3. Thank you for tagging me!
