Welcome to day 23 of the Christmas Blogger Q&A. Today’s Christmas Q&A is with Laura from Laura Snow.
Hello! I’m Laura, I’m a sales manager by day and blogger by night! I love my blog, its my little chunk of the internet where I can discuss anything I fancy! I mainly chat beauty, fashion and lifestyle. I don’t follow schedules or themes, i post what I like, when I like!
Question 1 – What’s your Christmas tradition?
Christmas eve was my Grans birthday and now she’s passed we always get together at my mum and dads house and have a big buffet tea and then sit playing board games. A favourite has to be Trans America!
Question 2 – What is your favourite Christmas indulgence?
Favourite..no I have favourites…All the cheese! All the chocolate…All the wine!! It is Christmas after all!
Question 3 – What is the best gift you have ever received?
This is a bit cheesy but the first time my now wife told me she loved me was Christmas Day 2012, that was the best present I could ever have wished for <3
Question 4 – Are you an early gift buyer or leave them to the last minute?
I always used to be a last minute buyer but as i’ve got older i’ve become more and more organised! This year I got virtually everything in the black friday sales!
Question 5 – Do you have a favourite shop to buy gifts?
I always seem to navigate towards the boots catalogue – lets be honest everyone loves a good 3for2, and their brand range is really expanding! But I’m shopping lots online now – ASOS, Ted Baker, Amazon
Question 6 – Is there something which you always wanted for Christmas but never got?
As a child i always wanted a big brother and just couldn’t understand why I never got one! As you get older, as much as gifts are lovely, actually I enjoy the time off work with family and friends more!
Question 7 – What is the most thoughtful gift that you brought someone?
Our families have sadly lost people that we love dearly and we’re strong believers that when they are near or want to let you know they are close you’ll find a white feather. Not the kind poking out of your cushion but somewhere random like on the kitchen side etc.
For Christmas last year I bought a box frame that inside said “Feathers appear when angels are near” It was the perfect gift.
Question 8 – If you could be in any Christmas movie, which one would you be in?
This is easy. The Snowman. I grew up watching the snowman on repeat. I love it. I love the message inside it but also the simplicity of it! I cant wait to have my own family and start them watching it too!
Question 9 – What is your earliest Christmas memory?
Christmas as a child was all about waking up early, opening my stocking and then waking up my grandparents so we could all go downstairs and open our presents! Christmas is all about family, I’d give anything to have my grandparents here for christmas this year.
Question 10 – What makes Christmas special for you?
I’m now an auntie to 4 nieces and a nephew and 2 of them are now old enough to really get excited by father christmas coming. Watching them get excited putting up the tree, leaving goodies for santa and his reindeer etc That’s what christmas is all about!
