Get to know me

Hello Lovelies.

So the very brilliant UK blogger Frankie a.k.a frankiefancies has nominated me to the Liebster award. Frankie posts about health, beauty, food and the things that go on in her life. I’ll leave a link below so please go check her out and share some love with a like or comment on her posts! x

So for today’s post I’m going to be answering some fun personal questions so you can get a better idea of who I am 🙂

Let’s get started!

What are the top 3 things on your bucketlist?

  1. Before I turn 30 I would like to write and publish a novel.
  2. To live in New York
  3. To create a podcast

Who is your biggest inspiration and why?

Lena Dunham. This is a more recent inspiration but when I read this question she was the first person who popped into my head. I love it when women make things happen for themselves. Independence is something very important to me. I don’t like relying on other people. I firmly believe that if you want something you need to make it happen for yourself and you have to make yourself happy, not to rely on others for happiness. Lena has done so much that inspires me. She’s written and published a novel. She is the creator of the hot U.S show ‘Girls’ and a podcast called ‘Women of the hour’ in which she interviews different influential female friends and relatives of her.

Dunham has also played an active role in the modern feminist movement. She pushes the idea not that women are better than men but that we are just as good as them (equality my friends not superiority). I would love to meet her. She’s such an intelligent funny human and if I could have anyone at a dinner party for example she would definitely be top of the list. I can only hope to achieve half of her success  by the time I’m 30 🙂

Why did you start blogging and what is your favourite thing about it?

As I said I love blogging because of the social aspect to it.To the outside world it can on the surface seem like a very lonely hobby but you and I both know this not to be true. I get such a kick when I see people commenting on my posts and chatting with you. I enjoy meeting people all over the world and sharing thoughts and interests.

I started this blog because I was in college with no job and I was quite lonely and fed up. I felt like I didn’t really have many people to talk to or anything to really do. So I thought hey I love writing why not share the many thoughts and opinions I have. And here we are 6 months later. I may not have many posts but I’m definitely proud of my little part of the internet, I’m definitely not going anywhere just yet so stay tuned for more!

What’s the weirdest thing about you?

I’m a bit of a germaphobe. I don’t share drinks with anyone not even family. I don’t share food off plates. I hate public toilets. I always carry sanitiser. I HATE burps and farts so no I do not do either of those and hate it when I’m around people and they do either.

and yes my family and friends do think I’m nutty. 😀

What is your favourite thing to do in your spare time?

Pinterest! I could scroll for hours searching outfit inspo and Diy’s.

What is your dream career?

A writer either for a magazine or a novelist.

What annoys you?

People who have no manners. Yes I know I sound like such a granny 😀 But seriously I like people to be polite with good etiquette.

What are your short-term goals?

To dedicate myself more to developing my blog, posting more. Hopefully I’ll set up a facebook and snapchat soon also.  I’ve recently gained weight and become quite unfit so by the end of the summer I would really like to get healthy again 😀 And most importantly, get my drivers license!

Some weekend motivation from Karma Athletics! time to sweat off the stress of the week!:

What are your long-term goals?

To come out of college with a 2.1 or 1.1 degree. To move out into my own place. To travel to the west coast of America, I’ve seen the east coast so now I wanna see the other side. I also want to go to Iceland, Italy, India, gosh so many more. To volunteer overseas. To intern at a magazine or newspaper.

so cute! I wanna make this for my room/home...inspire by this picture and PLNU's study abroad sign.:

If you could be anyone else for a day who would you be?

Anna Wintour. I’m a fashion lover. I want to know what’s like to be such an influential figure in the industry and be the editor of a hugely successful fashion magazine, well more like THE fashion magazine.

Who makes you happiest. 

While I do always say you create your own happiness, there is one person that whenever I’m usually not in a bad mood for too long. That would be my cousin, Kate. There is only 11 months between us and we have been very close since we were tiny. We always seem to have a good ole laugh about something.


And that concludes the questions. I’ve probably gone into more detail than was necessary and rambled a bit but sure that’s typical me! 🙂

Thank you so much to Frankiefancies for the nomination!

    Creating a podcast is an awesome goal! My favorites right now are The Message and RadioLab. And I second your favorite part of blogging! It’s so fun to connect with other bloggers all over the globe and create a blogging community online. So glad to have found your blog!

      Aww thank you! I know isn’t it just so cool how you can fall upon someone’s blog randomly, like me finding yours actually, and just start chatting about shared interests! I love it! You’d never really get to do this anywhere else. ☺️ I’ll have to check out those podcasts, I’ve recently started listening to Lena Dunham’s women of the hour podcast, it’s so good, very thought provoking, I highly recommend!✨💛
