11 facts about myself;

#1 I am studying Law but have came to realise it just isn't for me. I've always loved fashion and was too scared to even try to delve into it, but now I have!
#2 I have a guilty pleasure of reading crime/murder books. I do get dodgy looks on the train for it.
#3 I once got into the habit of drinking so many milkshakes per day, I began to get headaches whenever I didn't have say my usual 5 nesquiks. So I had to ban myself and go cold turkey :')
#4 I have a lovely little sister who is 2! It is odd being 20 years old with such a young sister but it has given me so much practice for the future!
#5 I hate when I'm writing notes/ a to do list, and someone smudges my ink or I make a mistake. I have to start over.
#6 I am scared to start driving. I'll be 21 in the autumn and probably the only one out of my friends without even a provisional licence. 
#7 I have an amazing boyfriend who supports everything I do.
#8 I have naturally ash blonde hair but have dyed it a more bleach blonde, which I'm currently trying to grow out!
#9 I've always had and loved Benefit products
#10 I hiccup every day without fail.
#11 I am obsessed with the colour blue.

11 questions:

How long have you been blogging?
Since the beginning of Feb this year. I used to own a grunge blog on tumblr which had around 3,000 subscribers but I ditched it as the whole 'only grunge' thing was a phase.

What job are you aiming to get / do you have?
I do not have a job. I'm a full time student! But I intend to do an internship over summer and eventually end up working for a business that has something to do with fashion.

Would you ever get a tattoo, and what would you get?
I do have a tattoo. If you can even call it that. My friend when I was 18 got a sterilised needle from her mum (a nurse) and some black ink and gave me a crucifix tattoo on my ribs. It has all faded and you can't see it unless I'm topless/braless and it was a HUGE mistake. Always go to a tattoo parlour! I could have got a serious infection from it and I'd never recommend getting a tattoo unless you really want one either! Aside from that, no. But I admire those who do too :)

What is your proudest achievement?
I'd have to say building my confidence up from basically nothing as I went through a horrific time in my teenage years due to a family breakup/arguments which escalated and turned very nasty, with me stuck in the middle. I moved to a different part of the UK to study in Uni. I'm still battling with anxiety issues but I have grown so much since moving away. So in a way I am very proud of myself for putting my foot in the deep end!

How do you stay organised?
I would love to say that I was 100% organised but I'm not. It depends on the context. If I need to pack clothes etc for a trip I will start packing the week before! Anything else and I make notes/checklists but do end up rushing sometimes!

What is your favourite film?
Les Miserables. Every time.

What is your favourite thing about blogging?

Expressing my opinion, showing people what my fashion/beauty picks are and showing who I really am, despite what others may think.

What is the best bargain you have ever found? (Like from eBay, sales or charity shops)
In Urban Outfitters last year I found a pair of black riding pants for £5 reduced from about £70. And I gave them to my friend too instead of keeping them for myself. I now regret that decision!

Give your most inspirational quote that you’ve found.
You gain strength, courage  and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

Do you prefer A/W style or S/S style?
Ask me 6 months ago and I would say Autumn/Winter. Since becoming obsessed with pastel colours, I'd now say Spring/Summer.

Who inspires you?

First of all, my family and friends. This is a given. My boyfriend also inspires me due to his motivation and encouragement. Fashion/Beauty wise, I'd say Zoella, Lily Melrose, and Jess.
