Hi and welcome to Steph’s World & the Christmas Blogger Q&A Series. There will be 21 Guest Bloggers taking part in this Q&A running up to Christmas day. To learn more about this Series, please see my blogpost called ‘Introduction to the Christmas Blogger Q&A‘. Today we welcome Rachel from Beauty and the Bird…
Rachel – Beauty and the Bird
I’m Rachel from Beauty and the Bird – a beauty, fashion and lifestyle blog I started back in 2013. After reading and following several blogs for a while I decided to take up blogging myself – and I haven’t looked back since! In my free time, I love watching YouTube, going to concerts (Olly Murs ones in particular) and playing with my cats!
Question 1 – What is your favourite Christmas memory?
My favourite Christmas memory is sitting around the table having Christmas lunch when I was little, being surrounded by all my family. In particular I remember playing around with the whoopee cushion which I found in one of the Christmas crackers one Christmas!
Question 2 – Are there any traditions you have around Christmas time?
We normally have Christmas lunch with the family on Christmas day. However, we do have a slightly different Christmas tradition in our house – we open our presents at midnight on Christmas eve!
Question 3 – What is on your Christmas wish list this year?
Some lighting so that I can take blog photos and film videos at any time of day – especially since it gets dark so early at this time of year.
Question 4 – Do you like to wear Christmas jumpers, if you do; what is your favourite Christmas jumper?
I love Christmas jumpers – my favourite one is white with little gingerbread men all over it. Super cute and it only cost £7 from Primark last year.
Question 5 – Do you like to give presents or receive presents?
Both! I love opening presents and I also love picking out different presents that I know my family and friends would love to open on Christmas day.
Question 6 – Do you like the Christmas goodies such as Mince Pies, Christmas Pudding or the limited edition drinks?
I love the limited edition drinks from Costa and Starbucks but I’m not a fan of mince pies and Christmas pudding (I wish I was though!)
Question 7 – What is your favourite part of Christmas dinner?
Turkey, stuffing and Yorkshire pudding!
Question 8 – What is your favourite Christmas Song?
Driving Home for Christmas – it puts me in a good mood!
Question 9 – Are you taking part in Blogmas or Vlogmas this year?
I’m doing Blogmas this year for the first time ever, which I’m super excited about! 🙂
Question 10 – Do you have anything exciting coming up on your blog next year?
I’m always thinking up new ideas for my blog and I’ve got some pretty exciting ideas in mind! Keep your eyes peeled 😉
