Questions Lori has asked me:
1. Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now? 10 years from now?
5 years from now I can see myself with a degree (finally) and hopefully in a job that I enjoy- hopefully in a book shop! In 10 years time, I would like to be settled down with a boyfriend/finance/husband and with a child (god this is intense thinking!) and hopefully working in publishing books!
2. What are you most excited about in 2015?
I'm excited to start university again (and hopefully enjoy it a lot more) and just see what the year brings me!
3. Are you an early bird or night owl?
I'm more of an early bird, get everything done and then enjoy the rest of the day!
4. Who is your inspiration?
I guess I have two people in particular who inspire me, Gary Lightbody the lead singer from Snow Patrol and Louis Cole a YouTube travel vlogger. I love Gary because his music has helped me get through some rough times, he's also someone who has worked hard to make his career work and I'd like to think I will follow in his footsteps and get what I want from life. Louis Cole, very much has my dream job of going across the world constantly and throwing himself into everything and anything. Full of positive vibes and a lovely person all round!
5. Why do you blog?
I blog because it gives me something to focus on, what with dropping out of uni and not having long hours at work I need something to occupy my mind. I love books and this seemed a great way to discover new books/authors and other bloggers to share my love for them with. It's also a brilliant idea of documenting things like trips I go on with family/friends and knowing what books I have and haven't read :-)
6. What are your top favourite songs?
In NO particular order...(this was really hard to do!)
1. Easy Lover- Phil Collins
2. Dark Roman Wine- Snow Patrol
3. Certain Romance- Arctic Monkeys
4. 1973- James Blunt
5. Baba O'Riley- The Who
7. Where do you find your inspiration?
With having a lot of time to myself I'm constantly checking out new blogs and twitters and I just pick up things as I go, I like the simple things in life. Blogs like A Beautiful Mess are definitely a big one for me, as well as BookTuber's like ReadingBukowski, RonLit and Barry Pierce :-)
8. What blogs do you check daily?
(I've linked these to Bloglovin' as this is my favourite website to view blogs I follow)
"All I can do is be me...whoever that is"- Bob Dylan
10. What is your favourite animal?
11. What is your holy grail beauty product?
I know its a "baby" product but Sudocrem is literally the best, spots, rashes, anything thats sore put a nice helping on and I can guarantee in a couple of days it'll be clear (unless its an STI, then you need to get professional help!!)
