What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?

I’d love to be skilled enough to have been a vet (my 6 year old self would have LOVED to), but realistically a photographer or writer!

Everything and anything- from the food I’m eating, people I’m with, music i’m listening to and style I admire.

What do you think it is about your blog that keeps people coming back for more?

To be honest, I’m really not sure! I put a lot of hard work into my blog, making sure everything I post is something I’m super proud of and think my readers can take inspiration from in some way. I also make sure to reply to tweets and questions as much as I can to try and build relationships with the lovely ladies who keep clicking back!

How does a brand get your attention for a feature?

Usually via email!

What do you love most about blogging?

Probably the amazing people I’ve been lucky enough to meet through it- be it fellow bloggers, brands and people that I’m now lucky enough to call my friends.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Hopefully happy and still blogging!
