Hmm…my favourite holiday indulgence is sleeping in late, drinking coffee spiked with Bailey’s all morning/early afternoon and reading one of the books/trashy magazines i got for Christmas in my pajamas. I never feel guilty about not getting dressed, and it’s so cozy to be inside on Boxing Day with nothing to do after all of the craziness.

Hi,

I don’t really have a favorite holiday indulgence other than making sure I have a tree up & that my children have some presents to open up on Christmas Day – I come from a family with many siblings & our parents weren’t able to buy us presents – we would get a present from our aunt. My fondest memories of Christmas when I was a young child / adolescent was helping my mother make all the sweets (cookies, raisin pies etc) & playing cards with all of my cousins.

My favorite holiday indulgence(s) is buying at least two of the latest makeup palettes/boxsets that always come out at this time of year(@ Sephora). My recent purchase was the one by Tarte – The Starlet. So pretty! And my last indulgence is making several different types of squares and cookies as Xmas gifts, and ensuring there are many left for me to indulge in! (last night it was Shortbread – is that included in a Clean Diet?)

My favorite holiday indulgence is having a decadent Christmas morning. I always make a huge breakfast (french toast, bacon, fresh fruit, cheese ) before we open gifts. Thankfully my little girl is patient. I then add some Baileys to my coffee after we are done and it begins! I guess having alcohol in the morning is probably the most decadent part of that ritual!
