Meher’s Questions:

Is there anything you would like to change about your blog?

I recently updated the theme on my blog, so for right now, I’m really happy with how it’s looking and working.


What is your favourite genre to read?

Usually romance although I am getting into thrillers a bit more.


Do you have a favourite word? If yes, then what is it?

I do; it’s the ‘F’ word ha. I’m not sure why to be honest; it’s just such a good sentence enhancer… in the right situation anyway.


According to you, is pineapple on pizza even justified? Why or why not?

Absolutely not. Pineapple is a fruit and should not be on a pizza!!


If given a chance, would you rather fly with the birds or would you swim with the fishes?

Fly with the birds. The views would be amazing. I love the ocean but I think I would be terrified swimming in the middle of it.



Bea’s Questions:

Is it hard for you to maintain a Work-Blog life balance? If so, how do you stay motivated and overcome that?

I do struggle with this quite a bit. I really love blogging and when I’m not doing it, I’m thinking about it. It is quite difficult but work is work and blogging is after-work, so I’m managing it.


Have you told your friends and family about your blog? How did they react?

I have recently told them. I actually did a blog post about this last week. You can find it here 🙂


What are the things you would like to achieve with your blog in the near future?

More collaborations, more followers and more readers.


What are you most proud of?

Buying my own home


Fun/Weird question: If you had the choice to have 10 puppies or 10 kittens which would you choose and why!?

10 puppies; I’m such a dog lover. Grown up with them my whole life.


Finlay Grace’s Questions

If you could be anyone for a day, who would you be? what would you do and why?

This is a tough one. I think I’d be Lindsey Kelk. She’s my favourite author and I’d just love to know what goes through her mind on a daily basis to come up with such amazing stories.


What is your most nostalgic memory?

My three best friends (3 sisters) used to live next door to my parents home so we grew up together and our parents became really close and we use to put shows on for our parents and drag my brother into it. We would perform the Spice Girls, Take That, Boyzone, Five. Some of the best days of my life!


What are you most proud of?

Owning my own home. And of my brother and his life!


What are your 3 top tips of maintaining motivation when growing your blog?

Read others posts, they can motivate you to come up with ideas for your blog, without copying, of course!

Making new friends, I’ve made so many new friends on Twitter via the blogging world and it’s absolutely amazing.

Keep posting. If you can try and get ahead of yourself. I’ve always got at least 3 weeks worth of blog posts scheduled in advance so I know I’m not panicking to get something out, rushing it and it be rubbish.


Where do you see yourself in five years?

Working for myself, whether it be in the profession I’m trained for and/or this blog. Also with a cute little family! That’d be great.


You don’t have to join in if you don’t wish to or you’ve already done it before! For those who do join in, I hope you have some fun with this! I certainly did!



My 5 questions to you all!

  1. What made you want to start blogging?
  2. Apart from blogging, what do you enjoy doing?
  3. What has been your biggest accomplishment (in life or in blogging) so far?
  4. What do you look for in other people’s blogs?
