Before I start this post I want to say a big thank you to the beautiful Lynda for tagging me in this post! This post works by the tagger (is that even a word...) asking 11 questions and tagging 11 bloggers in which they answer the questions and then ask a different 11 people another set of questions. I feel like that made no sense at all but you will get the hang of it as the post go's along. 

Questions Lynda asked me:

Who is your favourite blogger/ influencer?
I can't possibly just choose one so I am going to list my top 5!
  1. Shaaanxo
  2. Zoella
  3. Jamie Genevieve
  4. Rachel Leary
  5. Kathleen Lights
What is your favourite social media platform? And what do you like most about it?
My favourite platform has got to be Twitter, If you don't already follow me you can follow me here, tweet me with a little cup of tea emoji so I know you have come from this post. I mainly use Twitter because I find in the easiest to interact with my readers as well as discover new blogs and make some blogger friends.

How/ why did you start blogging?
I was homeschooled from year 10 and found I had plenty of time on my hands and I discovered youtube which then helped me find blogging. I decided to create my own blog and 4 years later, 3 differed blogs and 100's of posts later I am still here. I can thankfully say I have finally found blogging peace and will not be leaving the blog behind. If you want to read more in-depth then I have a post written all about it here.

If you could create a product/ brand what would it be?
I loved this question! I would probably want to bring out my own line of t-shirts or jumpers or maybe even stationary but then, on the other hand, I would love love love to own a makeup brand also! Tough decisions!

How did you come up with the name for your blog?
I hadn't been happy with my previous blog for a while and had the idea for a whole new blog written down in the notes on my phone for around a year now. I just loved the idea of people reading my blog all cosy with a nice cup of tea (or coffee or anything you fancy).

What is the one thing you dislike about blogging?
Being completely honest I don't actually dislike anything about blogging, I just hate the fact that a lot of the meet-ups and events are held in London or down in the area which I'm pretty far away from. 

What is the best thing to happen to your blog so far?
I would probably see finding blogger peace and falling back in love with blogging. I am also pretty close to 4K followers on Twitter and successfully held my first giveaway back when I hit 3K. 

If there was one thing you would change in the blogging industry what would it be and why?
I don't really know how to answer this post as I don't think I would change anything? 


What keeps you following and brings you back to blogs?
I keep going back to blogs when their passion and love for what a person is writing about is shown through their posts.

What advice would you give to new bloggers?
It is not easy! Blogging is a lot of work and views don't just come to you, you have to engage and read other blogs to get your name out there. Don't be disheartened when you don't get 100s of views straight away, keep trying and putting every bit of effort into your posts and your views will come soon enough.


What would be your dream blogger/ press trip? Where would you go and what would you blog about?
The ultimate goal is to get to New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week!  


My Questions!
  1. Do you use Instagram alongside your blog? If so does it help your views?
  2. Do you have a schedule or do you post as and when you can? What is your reasoning behind it?
  3. Do you have any blogs you read religiously? If so who are they?
  4. Have you attended any blogger events? If so what were your thoughts? If not are you wanting to attend any?
  5. When did you start blogging? 
  6. If you could befriend any celebrity/ blogger/ influencer who would you befriend?
  7. What is your ultimate goal in life?
  8. What book/ movie have ou most recently read/ watched?
  9. Where would you like to live the most?
  10. What is your dream holiday?
  11. Do you have a bucket list? What are you working towards?
