In only 5 words describe what readers can expect from your blog:
Lifestyle, beauty, tips, advice, friendliness!
What inspired you to start blogging?
I just finally thought why not? I was having a bit of tough time and that made me think, I’m just going to do it! It feels quite daunting to put yourself out there but I’m very glad I did!
Tell us about your blog name… what made you decide on it?
I wanted something that wouldn’t pigeon hole me too much. The worry is that if you go for too vague a name, no-one understands what your blog’s about. I like ‘thoughtsandthings’ though, it’s got a special place in my heart haha!
Do you ever suffer from Blogger’s Block & if so how do you overcome it?
Yes! I’ve been blogging regularly for a few months now and so it can get to the point where you feel as though you’ve completely run out of ideas. I always look out for a TAG if my writers block gets really bad! That’s my tip actually, go for a TAG if you’re struggling.
What’s your favourite post to date?
It would have to be this post http://thoughtsandthings1.com/2014/12/13/my-trip-to-new-york-city/ and this one too http://thoughtsandthings1.com/2015/02/03/epilepsy-a-personal-request/ because although it isn’t like my usual posts, it’s really close to my heart in raising awareness around epilepsy as much as possible.
Describe your everyday clothes style:
It tends to be a dress, tights and either brogues, wedges or ankle boots. If I’m working, I’ll wear a blazer over top and if not, I won’t! I would say I majorly slide between a very boho relaxed style (I do love a flower headband) and preppy girl next door (a peter pan collar is very much my thing!). I just wear what I want to, to be honest!
What are your current top 3 beauty items?
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturiser, Cream in my Coffee lipstick by MAC and Wake Me Up Foundation by Rimmel.
How do you like to relax & unwind after a stressful day?
There’s nothing like a cup of tea with one sugar, my duvet and some trashy television! If I’m feeling a bit more energetic, a lazy dinner and a glass of wine is lovely.
Describe your ideal Saturday night:
In a bar that has a good atmosphere with my best friends. As long as we’re laughing and all together it’s a good night.
What do you do to relax?
Blog! Besides that I tend to write in my journal, watch a good TV series, read a book or see my friends.
Everyone has their bad habits, what’s yours?
Being a terrible worrier!
What’s your most cherished childhood memory?
I have lots of memories from when I was very small (3 or 4?) spending time at home with my Mum, helping her cook, reading books together and playing. Equally I’ll always remember watching Home and Away at 4pm on ITV with a beaker of warm milk with my Mum. When my Mum went back to work, it was lovely mother/daughter time.
What was your favourite school subject?
English, ever since I was tiny!
What’s your dream job?
I’d love to write for a living in some capacity.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I hope extremely happy, perhaps engaged or married? How wonderfully scary!
What top 5 things are on your bucket list?
Visit Canada, my Aunt passed away a few years ago but I so wish I’d visited her while she lived there
Spend a month in New Zealand. I’ve heard its beautiful.
A weekend in Florence – it’s the hopeless romantic in me!
The biggest is to be able to look after my Mum financially.
What’s your biggest achievement to date?
Landing my first job post University!
Who inspires you?
Do you have a favourite inspirational quote?
It’s only impossible, if you decide it is.
What top tips would you give to someone who is thinking of starting their own blog?
Do it! If you like to write, if you want to learn from others and if you’re doing it because you genuinely want to, you’ll love it!
