11. What’s your dream job?
My dream job is either becoming a full time blogger or a freelance Social Media consultant.
1. What inspired you to start a blog?
I started this blog originally in 2009 after I left my career as a retail manager to retrain in Internet Marketing. Originally I was going to do different things every month such as go Vegan or take up knitting. I was also going to use it as a weight loss diary. But 2009 was too stressful for me to do it and the blog went on the back burner until I was happy within myself and then it just came quite naturally.
2. What beauty product were you most excited about and then most disappointed about when you finally tried it?
I think it was the Rimmel Primer that gave me spots 🙁

In an ideal world I would love to become a full time blogger, but realistically I would just be happy to still be writing it have people reading it in five years time.
