I’ve actually been nominated quite a while ago… aka probably nearly a month now. I don’t really have an excuse other than me being lazy. BUT I’m finally getting to it and it’s better late than never right…?

Now onto the questions!
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I had been doing a lot of writing at the time. I was going through quite a bit, and my form of outlet was through words. I would literally pour my heart out onto the page (or screen) and let it go. At the beginning, I was just using them as super long captions on Instagram. But eventually I thought it deserved more than just acting as decoration underneath a pretty picture, so I started this blog! It just felt right, as cheesy as it sounds, it was like my ‘calling’. I’ve always wanted to create my own thing, whatever it may be, and my friends were extremely encouraging. That was a long-winded answer. I promise the rest will be more concise.
2. What is your favorite movie?
3. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Ah… There are so many places. Somewhere warm, near the ocean, away from the city, surrounded by trees and nature. Probably Bali or Hawaii, although that seems to be the ‘trendy’ thing to do right now and I don’t like to be conventional.
4. What is your favourite season?
Definitely summer. Firstly because I hate the cold. Secondly, I thrive on sunshine. Give me sun, water, plants, and I’ll be a happy bunny.
5. What is your favourite holiday?
I’ve actually gone off celebrating holidays lately. I guess my family was never big on holidays anyway, especially considering where I grew up. But if I had to choose I’d probably say Christmas because everyone seems to be extra jolly during that period.
6. Dogs or cats?
Do I really have to choose??? I love both, so the only reason I’m choosing dogs is because I like taking walks and having a dog with me would make me look less like a freak.
7. Coffee or tea?
Tea all day everyday! I try to stay away from stimulants like caffeine because I don’t mix well with them.
8. What is your favourite book?
This is a tough one. I’d say The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein because it opened up a new world to me.
9. If you were only given one meal to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Breakfast. I LOVE breakfast food. Oatmeal, avocado toast, pancakes, waffles… I’m so basic.
10. What is your favourite hobby?
11. Who is your favourite band?
Coldplay. I told you I’m basic.
