The questions she gave me are:
What pushed you to start your blog?
After deciding my relationship with alcohol wasn’t the best in the world, I made the decision to try dry January, I thought it would be good to write about my experience of doing this. My very first few posts were about doing DJ but as I started writing my blog I enjoyed writing about other things too so here I am 🙂
Favourite animal and why?
Thats a really hard question. I love dolphins – doesn’t everyone?! Also when I was little I really really wanted a lion cub as a pet (so badly!!) Now, I would have said cats until about four and a half years ago – when we got an adorable puppy! So I would have to say cats AND dogs I think for their gorgeousness and ability to show love and loyalty.
What’s your advice for new blogs – 1 do and 1 don’t
Do engage with other bloggers – everyone I have come across so far has been so lovely and supportive. Don’t write things randomly in a notebook because you will just get yourself in a muddle (voice of experience – but I’m looking for a way of organising myself better if anyone has any tips please!)
What top 3 things would you tell your teenage self?
There really are so many things, err one would be revise for exams (I did ok but could have done loads better if I’d tried!) be brave and stand up to people who call you names and are plain bitchy; don’t drink and smoke just because your friends do.
What’s your Favourite TV show
I don’t watch much TV really, but atm like Britain’s Got Talent, I love when you see someone with amazing talent like a beautiful voice or a group of dancers who keep perfect time with each other.
Which TV show can’t you stand
Sorry but the Jeremy Kyle show, I can’t stand it, they all go on in their worst clothes and don’t care who knows their business. If I was going on TV I would at least get my hair done 😂
What’s the best chocolate bar?
I love Lindt chocolate, Fruit and Nut, Galaxy, depends on what sort of mood I’m in, actually I love most chocolate!
Dinner or Tea – what do you call your evening meal (there is only one correct answer lol)?
I’ve probably got this wrong! Now I call it dinner BUT when I was little I called it tea. I don’t know when it changed actually.
How do you practice self care?
I try and make the effort to go swimming as often as I can as it’s relaxing. I wear make up and like to get my hair done every couple of months as it makes me feel better about myself. I don’t drink alcohol any more.
My nominations will be announced on Twitter, so keep a look out in case you are tagged!
Finally my questions are:
What made you decide to start a blog?
Do you have a post you are really proud of?
What was your favourite toy as a child?
What is your favourite flavour ice cream?
What is your favourite theatre show you have seen/would like to see?
Do you remember any one dream particularly vividly?
Do you wear make up? If so, what is your ‘must have’ item?
Do you have a favourite perfume?
What is your favourite TV programme?
What would your perfect job be?
Sorry if you’ve been nominated before, also don’t feel you have to answer the questions if you don’t want to but it is interesting to read people’s replies in a blog post. I think it’s nice also as it makes you question yourself about things 😃
