Tag - you're it! | Christmas Tags

It's going to be a bit of a long post today because I've been nominated to do a couple of tags this week, so I thought I'd combine them together in a post. I've got the Christmas Beauty tag, and the Fifty Facts About Me tag - and because Christmas is just around the corner, I'm going to try and add some festive facts in that one! Tags are actually one of my favourite types of blog posts - I find them really interesting and fun to read.

 I'm going to start with the Fifty Facts About Me tag. Thank you to Rosie for the nomination! I really like this tag because it's really fun, quick and easy to read - and you always learn something new. I'll link Rosie's blog here, so you can take a look.

1.) My blog’s name is BETH MAY, the BETH shortened from my full name Elizabeth, and the MAY because it is my middle name.

2.) I am about to witness my fourteenth Christmas.

3.) In our house, altogether we have seven pets.

4.) I’ve almost finished all of my Christmas shopping.

5.) I’m home-educated.

6.) ‘’I’m dreaming of a white Christmas’’ (in other words, I’m hoping for snow!)

7.) Pink has always been my favourite colour.

8.) I usually ask for a surprise as a Christmas present.

9.) I’m not really a sporty person, but I love dance and take ballet and tap lessons.

10.) I think my favourite part of Christmas Day is exchanging presents, because I love watching people’s reactions as they open my gifts. (and Christmas dinner has to be a close second!)

11.) I started blogging in July this year.

12.) I’ve always had a stocking at Christmas, either at the end of my bed or on the landing.

13.) I live in the UK.

14.) I can’t decide on a favourite Christmas song!

15.) My favourite lessons are art and English.

16.) I can’t choose a favourite Christmas film, but some firm favourites are Elf, A Muppets Christmas Carrol, and The Snowman.

17.) I’ve got two brothers - I’m the youngest!

18.) I definitely prefer Winter to Summer - I like it when it’s colder and it looks magical when it’s snowing.

19.) I live in the midlands, of England.

20.) I love wrapping up Christmas presents—it makes me feel really excited for the 25th.

21.) I love reading, and my favourite authors are Jacqueline Wilson and Cathy Cassidy.

22.) I really enjoy crafts and love making home-made Christmas cards.
23.) I love taking and editing photos. 

24.) I have an dairy-free chocolate advent calendar; I’m allergic to milk.

25.) I had my ears pierced once when I was about eight or nine, healed them up again, and then had them re-pierced a few years ago.

26.) I posted off my first few Christmas cards yesterday.

27.) I go to an online-school, called Interhigh.

28.) I love reading other bloggers’ Blogmas-es.

29.) I have long, brown hair. I used to have a fringe, but I grew it out in about year five-six.

30.) When I go Christmas shopping, I love the festive atmosphere—the music and decorations! I like to go during the week (at weekends, it can get crazily busy!).

31.) I love writing - stories, letters and blog posts!

32.) I think the best Christmas present I’ve received is my rabbit, Benji.

33.) I’ve worn glasses since I was about eight or nine.

34.) I’m quite excited to see how Benji will react if it snows!

35.) I used to do street dance.

36.) My favourite part about decorating a Christmas tree is at the end when we switch the lights on - that always looks magical.

37.) I hate mushrooms.

38.)  My favourite Christmas book is The Night Before Christmas. It’s a bit of a tradition for my family to read it on Christmas Eve.

39.) I love all art, but I think I like drawing best - it can be tricky to control paint!

40.) I haven’t made any New Year’s resolutions yet, but they are usually to do with growing my nails.

41.) I usually wear my hair down with a hairband, and I like trying ‘half up, half down’ hairstyles.

42.) I always wake up early on Christmas morning.

43.) I’m teaching myself to play the ukulele.

 44.) I’m planning a few Christmas blog posts…

45.) I love stationary—I always get really excited about shops stuffed with pens and 

46.) My guinea pig, Rose, will be having her fourth Christmas.

47.) I’ve been to France, Scotland and Wales.

48.) I like mince pies (but I never eat all of the filling! I like the pastry with a tiny bit of mince…).

49.) My favourite things to watch are all the soaps and talent shows.

50.) I’m writing this on the 15th of December… Only ten days to go...

Moving on to the Christmas Beauty tag, a big thank you to Alice at Girl Abroad for the nomination! I've picked a few of the questions from her version of the tag, which I'll link here.

1.) Have you been naughty or nice this year with your skin care routine?

Nice, I think! Over the last couple of years, I've tried a lot of different brands for skincare, but I recently discovered that the Superdrug's own products seem to work best for me! 

2) What's your go-to beauty, makeup or skincare product you would gift?

I think I would gift a set of nail varnishes, or a nail art set. A set of different lip balms would be nice present too.
3) Are you participating in Blogmas this year? If so, what is the post you're most proud of?

Actually, no. I'm not doing Blogmas this year, but maybe next time? I love reading other people's blogmas-es -  it's fun to click on a blog each day and see that a new post has popped up.

4) Do you remember the first beauty product you received at Christmas? Did you like it?

I'm not sure, actually. I think it might of been nail varnishes - I've still got them. They're Claire's - there is a sparkly pink, a glittery top-coat and a pale pink. I loved them!
5) What product would you recommend as a stocking stuffer?

I think I'd recommended a Body Shop lip balm. I did a review here. They're small and affordable but really useful and would make a lovely gift. 

For both of the tags, you have to nominate a couple of bloggers to have a go at them too. (You pick either tag  - or both! - to do, so if you've already done one, you can do the other if you'd like to).

I nominate:

Hannah from h.r.j

Alice from Girl Abroad 

Likewise, anyone reading who'd like to have a go at these tags, feel free to have a go - if you do, please link to it in the comments because I'd love to take a look.
