My 11 facts

– I have a massive hatred for men wearing short sleeved shirts

– I have completed a half-marathon whilst pregnant

– I’m a qualified spin instructor

– I love baking

– I have been on TV on a gameshow

– I’m an aries

Here are the answers to my 11 questions

– When did you start blogging? I started blogging as a way to keep in touch with family when I got married in 2009. It was quite sporadic and not very often. I gave my blog a big boost at the end of 2012 and got involved in lots of networks and really tried to promote my blog more.

– Who/what inspired you to start blogging? Initially it was a way to keep in touch and had seen other family and friends set up a family blog. I then saw other friends having great success with their blog and review products etc so that motivated me.

– What were your pregnancies like? Very different! With Max I had sickness for the first trimester and then nothing else basically. With baby girl I had no sickness at all, just a bit headachey etc but seemed to get everything else – so much tiredness with her too.

– What’s your worst habit? Interrupting people! I don’t know, probably should ask my hubs haha

– What’s your favourite film? Oh so many! I love Lord of the Rings but I also love a good film like Mean Girls but then a classic like It’s a Wonderful Life or Gladiator.

– What’s your daily make up routine? Not much ha – I use a moisturiser and then apply foundation. Generally, day-to-day, I usually just wear a bit of eyeliner, mascara and lip balm.

– What’s your biggest regret? I don’t have too many really, life’s too short but working harder at school/Uni – would have loved to have gotten a first for my degree.

– What do you think makes your blog different? Hmmm, pretty tough to answer. It is a general lifestyle and mummy blog but I hope my honesty and opinions about things set me aside from others. I’m also not so product orientated so hopefully that makes a pleasant change to read.

– How do you think I can improve my blog? A better blog design! I also need to be more active on social media, I think.

– What’s your “go to” quick meal? Anything with eggs – love a good omelette.

– Local shops or big chains? Why? I like the idea of local shops and try to shop at them and local markets as much as I can but with two kids it’s just sometimes easier to go to a one-store-fits-all type of thing. Plus, I love shopping online.
