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 Samantha Carraro…
Hey y’all loves! I’m Samantha and I’m a lifestyle, beauty, fashion (and a lot more actually) blogger from Italy. I love creativity so try to sprinkle it all over my life and my blog. I also like helping other people so why not combining the two things and create logos and graphics for other bloggers for free? Yes I’ve done that and it was always a pleasure.
Check out my blog for some interesting and unique content!
Question 1 – What is your favourite Christmas memory?
Honestly? I don’t think I have one. Is that sad? Ahah
I look at it with a positive eye though: I have an amazing Christmas memory waiting for me in the next future.
Question 2 – Are there any traditions you have around Christmas time?
I always decorate the tree by myself. It’s time I take for myself and I love it, also I’m a perfectionist so it’s better I do it on my own because no one else will do it as I want ahah
I also go to Christmas fairies and markets, I love seeing all the handmade things and breathing in all the pure and authentic Christmas air.
Question 3 – What is on your Christmas wish list this year?
A lot of things! Makeup, clothes, maybe a new camera.. But I hope there will be a nice growth for my blog too.
Question 4 – Do you like to wear Christmas jumpers, if you do; what is your favourite Christmas jumper?
I don’t have any Christmas jumpers (I wish I had one so badly!) but I do have a Christmas pajamas. I bought it at Tezenis and instantly fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. It’s all decorated with Christmas doodles such as trees, candies and snow flakes.
Question 5 – Do you like to give presents or receive presents?
I love receiving presents obviously but I also like giving them, especially when I find the perfect one for that person. I love seeing them surprised and touched because I know them that well to buy them exactly what they wished.
Question 6 – Do you like the Christmas goodies such as Mince Pies, Christmas Pudding or the limited edition drinks?
Here in Italy we don’t have so many Christmas inspired things. I wish I could try them all (I’m a big food lover) but we so have the “panettone”, a typical sweet food which is big, soft, sometimes with raisin and a perfect pair for custard.
Question 7 – What is your favourite part of Christmas dinner?
My favourite thing spending time with the people I love and care about. I get so happy around Christmas for the general atmosphere but especially because I get to see all my family, which is very important to me.
Question 8 – What is your favourite Christmas Song?
I actually have made a CD full of Christmas songs to play in the car (my dad already hates me for this because I always want to listen to it) and my favourites are Shake It Up by Train and Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.
Question 9 – Are you taking part in Blogmas or Vlogmas this year?
For the last 2 years I have done my Blogmas series but I don’t know if this year I will because of all the commitments I have in my life right now, but I’ll work hard to bring to my readers at least a few Blogmas posts.
Question 10 – Do you have anything exciting coming up on your blog next year?
Unfortunately no. But never say never, I’m always on the hunt for new exciting adventures for me and my blog!
Thank you to Samantha for taking part in this Christmas Blogger Q&A Series. Samantha and I have collaborated in the past on a post called How to Overcome Bloggers Block. Samantha is a pleasure to work with and I am very lucky to have her Guest Blogging for me in this series.
