It’s been a while since I’ve written an “about me” post. So when Shann nominated me to take part in this challenge I thought it was perfect timing. In this post I’ll be sharing 11 things you probably don’t know about me, I hope you enjoy my answers below.
1. How long have you been blogging and why did you start?
I’ve been blogging for just over 3 years. I started this blog in my first year at university as a place to share my thoughts, tips and tricks and as an alternative hobby to shopping, little did I know that beauty blogging and shopping almost go hand in hand!
2. Where is your favourite place to travel?
My favourite city to travel to is Paris. It was my first childhood holiday abroad with my family and, till this day it still holds a special place in my heart. I’ve been back several times since that first trip, both with family and friends and I’ve even shared my top 10 must visit places in Paris.
3. Tell us one of your guilty pleasures.
My guilt pleasure is dairy, especially ice cream. For the most part I try to follow a dairy-free diet (I’ve explained why in this post), but sometimes I just want to eat real ice cream and pizza as the dairy-free alternatives are just not the same!
4. What is your favourite colour and why?
Just in-case you haven’t guessed from my blog colour scheme, my favourite colour is purple. I’m not to sure why this is my favourite colour, but I like it so I’m planning to stick with it.
5. What did you want to be when you grew up?
Wow, my list is endless, let’s see. As a child I wanted to be a pop star, a chef or a lawyer. In my early teens I wanted to be a optometrist and later a clinical psychologist. What I’ve realised over the years is that career goals are fluid and flexible to change. Also, you don’t have to “be” just one thing!
6. Tell us one of your must-have items.
Burt’s Bees lip balm, I can’t stand dry lips so I don’t leave the house without it!
7. What is your favourite TV show or Movie?
I’m more of a YouTube kind of girl, early this week I shared 5 of my favourite channels.
8. Tell us about your favourite birthday.
I think maybe my 8th or 9th birthday party, which I had at a bowling place, kids parties are always fun.
9. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully still creating blog and YouTube content, married and a business owner.
10. Do you have any special talents?
Not really anything weird and wonderful!
11. If you could travel in time, would you go forward or back? Why?
I’d probably go forward, to see if the future is how I’ve imagined it!
