The Fashionista Award

The Fashionista AwardHi there! Last week I was nominated for The Fashionista Award by the lovely Kimberley from Kimmy Keep Real. Kimberley is an advocate for Mental Health and is all about promoting positivity. Make sure you check out her blog and small business Keep Real as well. I recently did an interview with Kimmy on her blog as part of her ‘Inspirational Bloggers’ series so if you haven’t already take a look here!

Onto the questions:

What motivated you to start blogging? I’ve touched on this a few times before but I was initially inspired by Filofax users and their beautiful blogs and YouTube channels. I had quite a bit of free time and was looking for a job and it kind of went from there. I think I decided to mainly blog about beauty because I like reading about it and it’s a topic I genuinely enjoy.

Favourite Movies? Don’t get me wrong I enjoy sitting down and watching a good movie but I’m not the sort of person who always goes to the cinema (I haven’t been in years!) and is a total movie buff. I can barely think of a list of movies I like but Grease and Titanic are films I’ve seen a lot so I’ll go with them. I do remember being obsessed with the first Charlie’s Angels movie when that came out.

What is your dream career? I’ve talked about this quite a bit too but incase you’re a new reader or have stumbled upon my blog for the first time my dream is to be a singer. I don’t necessarily want all the fame and everyone to know my name but being able to make a living from my biggest love, music, would be amazing!

Top wish list items at the moment? I really really want to find a nice facemask that I can do once a week or so and pamper myself a bit. I’d also really like some new clothes, kind of a problem when you don’t like shopping that much and it’s hard to find clothes that fit properly. #shortgirlproblems

Favourite TV shows? I’m much more of a TV show girl than a movie girl; F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Gimme Gimme Gimme, The Mentalist and Pretty Little Liars are some of my absolute favourites. I also like quiz shows and murder mystery shows, Midsomer Murders, Lewis, Poirot, Marple, Silent Witness etc.

What stores do you find yourself shopping at the most? This year I’ve really gotten into The Body Shop and I love popping in and having a browse. I’m always looking online for what I could potentially try next

Favourite fashion designers? Does Dannii Minogue’s Petite range for Target count? I want it all!

Describe your dream vacation! Moving to and living in England would feel like a vacation everyday! I’d love to explore all over.

What are your goals for your blog? I’d love to just keep writing and continue to improve my writing skills and beauty knowledge. When I started I had no idea what would happen but I’m so thankful to all the lovely people I’ve gotten to know and have yet to get to know. I’d also love to reach 500 followers, I’m not far off and it would mean a lot to get there! ❤
