THREE THINGS ABOUT ME
I’m completely obsessed with Dragonball Z. I’m 29 and I still love it. Vegeta is king and if you disagree, I’ll Galick Gun your arse.
I have a ‘phobia’ of twins. Identicals absolutely freak me out and I can’t process the fact it’s two different people.
I toy with the idea of colouring my hair all the time. But I’ve been a voluntary ginger for so long (about 6yrs) that it’s literally become part of my identity. If I change it I don’t think I’d feel like myself anymore. Is that weird?
If you could start your blog over, what would you change and why?
Truthfully I don’t think I would change anything. I’m very happy with my little corner of the internet. I suppose I would have gone self-hosted a lot sooner than I did if I could turn back time.
How do you manage your time to make sure your blog runs efficiently?
I don’t. I’m a self-confessed part-time and ‘wannabe’ blogger. I know there are plenty who have a set schedule, dedicate days to blog photoshoots and organise their social media with military precision; but that’s just not me. I’m consistently inconsistent and I’m okay with that.
What do you consider your greatest failure with blogging and how did you overcome it?
That’s a toughy. I suppose my photography skills could be my greatest failure. I’ve never been able to master the aesthetic I want to achieve and I get frustrated about it. But I’m doing a photography course at the moment and practising. I haven’t overcome this yet – but I’m hoping to soon!
What’s your niche and why did you choose it?
I wouldn’t say I have a niché. If others think I do I’d love to hear what they think it is, haha. I suppose a common theme within my blog posts is cruelty-free beauty and lifestyle stuff. If that counts, I didn’t choose it. It’s just something I am already very passionate about and is naturally something I want to share with people.
If you could be an Olympic athlete, what sport would you do?
Gymnastics. I used to do and was quite good at this when I was a kid. But all my friends stopped going and I didn’t want to do it without people I knew. So it kind of went out of the window. Who knows what would have happened if I stuck to it. I’d certainly be in better shape than I am now! Haha.
