My answers to the questions given to me
Why did you start blogging?
I was looking for something to do in my spare time where I could incorporate my hobbies of taking photographs and writing. I like to be creative and found blogging was a good outlet for that.
What’s been your biggest accomplishment since you started blogging?
I did a blog feature on body confidence that features over 100 women of all shapes and sizes who were happy to share their experiences and reasons of why they felt body confident. The blog post was viewed over 4500 times and was shared by Cherry Dollface who is a big name within the vintage/pinup scene. You can read the blog post here.
What’s the first thing you do in the morning?
I check my phone! I leave it on silent during the night so I can get a good nights sleep but I spend up to 20 minutes on a morning responding to messages, emails and going through notifications!
What’s your favorite dessert?
How many different states and/or countries have you lived in?
I live in England but have visited several different countries. If I could live anywhere I would choose Hawaii.
What’s your dream car?
I can’t actually drive so any car would do! I’ve had lots of lessons but I just don’t enjoy or like it. It makes me anxious!
If you could have a superpower for 24 hours, what would it be?
I’d want to be able to fly so it would be easy to visit all the places on my list I want to see!
What’s one of your biggest lifetime goals?
Happiness. Happiness can be brought to us in many ways and so long as I am happy, I feel that is a goal than can easily be achieved.
What’s your favorite book?
The Girl in Times Square by Paullina Simons.
Who has inspired you the most in your life?
My mum. She is a good strong role model and one of my best friends.
If stranded on a deserted island, what shoes would you want to be wearing?
None! I like to be barefoot as much as possible. It is good for grounding and being at one with Mother Nature and Earth. Being barefoot on the beach is always an amazing feeling!
