I’d been nominated for a few blog awards that involve question and answers so I thought I’d compile them into one lengthy post! Thank you to Ranisha, Christine and Viv who kindly nominated me – please check out their blogs! You guys got me feeling like this…
1. Batman or Superman? Chocolate or Red Velvet? Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings?
Batman – Because of Christian Bale obvs.
Chocolate – Because it is technically salad (tweet me and I’ll explain my reasoning).
Harry Potter – ALWAYS.
2. What is your favourite beauty product of all time?
Nars All Day Luminous Weightless foundation because the name is as long as it lasts. The coverage is amazing and buildable, works in all weather and it doesn’t slide off my face.
3. What have you learnt on your blogging journey?
How much I enjoy writing. I used to blog back in the early days of LiveJournal just to moan about my teenage life but now my blog is my outlet for exploring new ideas, experiences and enjoying life. If anything my blog has made me learn to love and appreciate life a little more.
4. What is your dream holiday destination?
FIJI. I wanna know why their water is so good.
5. What is your top wardrobe essential?
A well-fitted pair of skinny jeans. FYI – The Dorothy Perkins Lyla jeans are amazing.
6. If you could live the rest of your life by one quote, what quote would it be?
Sleep with your dreams or wake up and chase them.
7. What advice would you give to a newbie blogger?
Write something you’d enjoy reading yourself.
Proofread your work.
Join in the Twitter chats.
Don’t force yourself to just churn out content for the sake of it, it’ll come across in your writing.
What means so much to you and why?
I actually don’t know, but I’d say I personally mean so much to ‘me’. If I didn’t care about myself I would not be pursuing my goals.
What are your travelling goals? When and where do you plan to go?
Travelling goals – Ultimately just go everywhere, explore, take photos for the ‘Gram, learn something new and sample the food.
My plans next are – Milan, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. That’ll be it for 2016!
What are some of the ways you are growing in your business?
I don’t have a business sadly, well not yet. I have some ideas but they’re just ideas under lock and key currently!
What days do you set aside just for you? Days you don’t check no email and no business?
I always try and stick to Sunday as my ‘me’ day but I never switch off when it comes to e-mails. I’d rather deal with it there and then than let it linger for a few hours/days.
If you could give your readers/viewers any advice what would it be? Why?
Follow your intuition.
My questions are:
Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up. I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
