Originally these questions were asked through the Liebstar Award, which is where bloggers nominate some of their favourite bloggers to answer questions they’ve set and to nominate their favourite bloggers to do the same. (Wow, that was a mouthful). Basically, it’s like a chain blog message thing. I have done the Liebstar Award before which you can read here. I love reading other people’s get to know me posts and so I thought I would use the questions from my two most recent nominations to do my own. Thanks to SimplySara and BeautyMagic for their nominations.
Who would you say is your style icon?
I don’t think I have a style icon. I don’t believe in idolizing one single person’s fashion choices. I take inspiration from what strangers are wearing on the street, other bloggers, magazines, Pinterest and the likes.
What is your favourite place to travel or visit?
I’m currently living in San Francisco and I’m loving it. Although there are so many places on my to visit, so it’s possible I haven’t even been to my favourite yet. Out of all the places I’ve visited so far, Stockholm is the one place I really want to go back to. We were only there for 2 nights but I loved it.
Your favourite high street foundation?
I am a foundation junkie, I haven’t found ‘the one’ yet. At the moment, I am loving Rimmel’s Lasting Finish 25 hour foundation. It’s the one with the read lid if you want to try it.
Do you have any pets?
I have a family pet, a dog, called Lucky. (My little brother picked the name.)
What is your occupation?
I am a student, studying a Law with Criminology degree. I work part time in retail both here in San Fran and at home.
Where do you see yourself in ten years?
In 10 years, I will be turning 32. I would like to be well into my career as a lawyer and hopefully on my way to buying a house. (Ahhhh grown up stuff.) I’d also like to be married. I hope that I’m still blogging in 10 years and that my blog has grown.
Your top blogging tips?
My biggest tip for blogging or any sort of writing is to make sure you make a note of any ideas that pop in to you head at that time. For me it is always when I am out and about that ideas pop into my head. I use the notes app on my iPhone to make a list of blog ideas. Also…
Your favourite highstreet shops?
At home I usually shop in New Look, River Island and Miss Selfridge. In the US I’ve been shopping in H&M and Forever 21.
Do most of your close friends/family know about your blog, and where you embarrassed to start with?
Yea pretty much all of my close friends and family know about my blog. It’d be hard for them not to by the amount I harp on about it. I wouldn’t say embarrassed, more apprehensive. I’m pretty sure most of my family don’t actually know what blogging is.
What made you start writing?
I toyed with the idea of starting my blog for about a year before I actually made it. I’d followed blogs for ages and wanted to put my mark on the blog world. I treat it as a sort if Journal for me to look back on in 10 years or so.
Favourite clothing store?
What is your favourite TV show?
That’s actually a really hard one. There’s none at the moment as I don’t even have a TV. Although I am really missing The Following, Hawaii 5-0, NCIS Los Angeles, The Blacklist, New Girl and Home & Away.
What is your favourite thing about blogging?
It means that I can justify the obscene amount of time I spend on the Internet. I do also love how supportive the blogging community largely is.
Have you got any strange habits?
Yes, I can crack every single one of my joints. Believe me it’s strange.
Heels or flats?
I love how heels can transform an outfit and make it look ‘put together’, but if I had to only wear one type forever, I’ll always choose my trusty flats.
What has been your worst beauty or fashion mistake you’ve ever made?
Beauty wise; I did have a problem with fake tan. Less is definitely more where that’s concerned. Fashion wise, I have had a few outfits that I’ve regretted but I’ve always learned from them. For example, I had one dress that I was desperate to wear but it was way to low cut for me. I wore it anyway and you can guess what happened. It’s since been altered.
Favourite high end makeup brand?
Honestly, I don’t have one! I know, shocker! I’ve been disappointed with way too many. I am yet to try MAC so hopefully that won’t disappoint when I finally try it.
What did you want to be when you were younger?
The Prime Minister! I genuinely have no idea why because I’ve never had much interest in politics.
What is your favourite food?
Ooohhh steak! I love it rare!
Who is your favourite Youtuber?
It has to be Zoella. Isn’t she everyone’s favourite?
What are you doing with the rest of your day?
Today is my day off, so I am spending it either going shopping or having a pampering day. Then later tonight, we are off to The Exploratorium on Pier 15, San Francisco. It’s a science-y place that is ‘out of this world’ (<<<Get it). Tonight is a specific adult’s evening so that should be fun.
And so, that brings us to the end of this little Get to Know me post. I hope you enjoyed it. As I am being very bad and not nominating any one, I would love to find out who your favourite bloggers are. Let me know your top three (or more) in the comments part.
