My questions from Natalie:

What made you start blogging and when?
From reading The Youtube Guru's beauty and fashion blogs (especially Zoe's I was inspired instantly and then realised I could do it for myself too!

What's your favourite/least favourite thing about the blogger community?
My favourite thing about the blogger community is finding other girls blogs just like mine, we are all just starting out and trying to get known, I like the fact that I am not the only one without hundreds of followers. My least favourite thing about the blogger community is how hard it is to get known and how long it takes.

What's your life ambition?
My life ambition is to be happy, plain and simple but if I am happy I can do so much more and try lots of new things.

If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
New York! It's so amazing and just think about all the shopping you could do there!..

What is your favourite time of the year and why?
Autumn/Winter because the fashion is so lovely, I love layering up and wearing big jumpers and scarves!  I hate being cold but I love the look of frost and snow outside. I also like it because it is the festive season!

What is a beauty product you couldn't live without?
Mascara! I have long eyelashes so mascara helps me show them off.

Favourite film?
I can't pick between these two.. so,'Drive' and 'LOL'

How did you design your blog?
Through trial and error, I had a basic idea about HTML from studying it in high school so that was an advantage.

How many times do you write new blogposts?
Whenever I feel like it, I don't have a routine at the moment because I am always busy, but I will be writing more frequently soon.

What are your favourite subjects to write posts about and also to read about on other blogs?

Beauty for writing about. Homestyle, beauty, fashion, hauls and crafty posts to read about.

What is your happiest memory?
one of my happiest memories was getting my big fluff ball of a puppy!
