My Answers to Victoria’s Questions
What’s your go-to self care tip?
My self care tip is to learn how to put yourself first. This is something I am still working on but it is important. For example, if your gut is telling you, you need a break, make sure you take a break. It is okay just to relax and not do anything! Which is difficult for me so I trick myself into relaxing with a bubble bath. I have a post on How to have a Pamper Evening on a Budget which you can check out here.
What did you want to be when you were little?
This changed quite a lot when I was little but the ones I can remember include a Nursery Teacher, Dancer and Owl Tamer. Last one was after a day out at raptor foundation and was short lived!
If you play an instrument, which one? Or.. what instrument would you like to play?
I can play the flute. I haven’t played the flute since university and I do miss it. I will have to make time for it.
Is there a quote you live by? If so, what is it?
You need the rain to see a rainbow. It is a nice reminder that there is always something good in every bad situation.
If you could only eat one meal, three times a day for the rest of your life, what’d it be?
I’m assuming in this world I could eat this meal every day and not gain weight! I would have Mac and Cheese with broccoli and Dairy Milk Chocolate for dessert.
What’s one of your favourite childhood memories?
Ooo this is a tough one as there are so many. The first one that comes to mind is a camping holiday by a river in Wales. We had a campfire and toasted marshmallows. Also my sister slipped in the shallow river and got wet. Hehe!
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging in August 2018. I had been living in London for just over a year. I felt a bit lost as I had stopped alot of the hobbies I did at University (such as Dance), my friends were scattered across the country and I was in a job I didn’t enjoy. It is safe to say I felt a bit lost and down.
I started blogging to encourage me to focus on the positives. It has brought me so much more than I could ever dream of. I have discovered the amazingly supportive blogging community, my love of photography and had the opportunity to meet fellow bloggers at some events.
If you could step in the shoes of anyone for a day (like in Freaky Friday haha) who would it be?
Ooo interesting question. Louise Pentland (aka Sprinkle of Glitter) as she has a successful career and a beautiful family. She is also realistic about the difficulties in life.
What 3 words would you use to represent your personal style?
Comfort, autumn colours (mustard, greens, purples etc) and flowy! I love to wear dresses and skirts.
What gives you that extra spring in your step in the morning?
My Beanies flavoured coffee! It really is the small things in life.
If you were stuck on an island, who would you want to be there with you?
My boyfriend. As he is good in a crisis! He would keep calm whilst I panicked and find a way for us to get back home.
