1.) What made you start blogging?
When I became a mother, I focused on my son. I lost friends and I lost myself. Two odd years later, things are completely different. I have new challenges and a new mind set. I wanted to share the things I love; motherhood, my passion for dance and theatre, my self-love journey and my obsession for cosmetics. I thought why not try out blogging? And here I am. Loving it.
2.) What do you enjoy doing other than blogging?
Dancing! I dance in my living room, hallway, shower and kitchen. I’ll dance to anything. I’ve loved dancing since I was a little girl. I remember my neighbor Susan, she encouraged me to dance. She would come over, put the radio on and start teaching me a new dance routine. I thought the world of her. Dance is a passion of mine. I feel as though it’s my calling and I continue to thrive in it daily. If I’m stressed I’ll put music on and I’ll dance away my blues. I might be ‘plus size’ but it doesn’t restict me from doing something I love.
3.) Has there ever been a time when you didn’t want to blog?
I joined the blogging community half way through September, so I thought Blogtober would be a great way to start my blog, but oh boy was I wrong! I only managed to do 7 days of it. It definitely tested me as a new blogger. It taught me that I have to plan and prepare for my future posts. That I have to be organised and schedule my posts in advance. I was staying awake until 2.00am most nights writing for the following day. It was a very stressful and exhausting week, but it was also rewarding.
4.) What is your favourite band/singer/genre of music?
Nicki Minaj. I’ve been a fan of hers since 2009, her song ‘your love’ will aways be a favourite of mine. When she released Pink Friday back in 2011, I was officially obsessed! Her music helped me get through 3 years of University! Another favourite is Little Mix, the music they are currently making is amazing, especially Power!
5.) What is your go to thing to do when you’re not feeling too great?
I like to have a candle lit bath when I’m not feeling to good. I prefer baths as I can just relax alone. Alone time is a rare thing since I became a mum. I cherish my bath times. My goto bath time treat is often a seasonal bath bomb from Lush. At the moment it’s the Pumpkin Bath Bomb, This bath bomb is spooky and cute! It smells of homemade pumkin pie, full of spicy cinnamon and sweet vanilla. It turns the bath water orange and leaves your skin smooth and smelling divine.
6.) Where would you like to be in 5 years’ time?
In 5 years time, i hope to be teaching dance in the community. Living a happy and healthy life with Connor, preferably in Lancashire because I have friends there, the scenery is breathtaking and it feels like home.
7.) What is your favourite part of blogging?
My favourite part is when readers leave comments saying that they enjoyed my post or that they can relate with what I’ve written, it’s a great achievement!
8.) If you could give your past self-advice, what would it be?
Stand up for yourself, and know your worth. Don’t take shit but be kind! Everything will be ok.
9.) What was your first blog post?
I had always wanted a beauty box subscription and Glossybox was the one everyone was talking about. I would often come across reviews with beautiful images to go along with them on my Instagram feed, so I decided to subscribe in August. You can check out my review here.
10.) Do you feel like blogging has helped you in any way?
Not yet, but I’m hopeful that I’ll gain clarity, friends and inspire and help other people along the way.
11.) Where would you love to visit?
I would love to visit Paris! I haven’t left England yet as I have other responsibilities but it’s definitely on my travel wish list.
