Alice’s Questions
1. If you were a colour, what colour would you be?
White is such a clinical colour to me but I love grey as I think it looks so chic and I find it extremely relaxing hence why my room is painted grey.

2. What’s your favourite blog post you’ve written so far? Link it! 
Definitely my January favourites! I had taken a break from blogging and this was my first post after that, I put so much time into it and felt immensely proud at the finished post.

3. Who is your biggest blogging inspiration?
I love the cliche bloggers like Zoella, Tanya Burr, Niomi Smart etc etc.. They defiantly first inspired me to start a blog but if we’re talking on terms of maybe less known bloggers (not vloggers) that inspire my daily then I would go check out who I’m following on bloglovin as I love every single blog I follow!

4. How do you fight blogger’s block?
Blogger’s block is a nightmare, I get it a lot! I go on twitter and engage with fellow bloggers to give me an inspiration boost and scroll through bloglovin reading blogposts that catch my eye.

5. What type of blogger are you? (eg. fashion, beauty.) 

I dabble in everything to be honest, I like my blog to reflect me and I have interests in lots of aspect of life like beauty, fashion and lifestyle. I love reading blogs that have a diverse range of content so thats what my blog is. 

6. Do you have any blogging regrets? 

Sometimes you just need to take some time out for yourself but blogging makes me feel so happy and I love feeling like I have accomplishes something so I wish I had never taken breaks.

7. What’s your favourite way to treat yourself? 

BUY MAKEUP! Haha I love buying makeup but I’m also a sucker for lush products and anything along the pampering line.

8. What was the last thing you bought? 

Yesterday I went shopping with my Grandma and bought a denim jacket from the GAP outlet and a leopard print tan tassel handbag, I’m definitely partial to a good bargain!

9. Describe your dream holiday? Details please! 
My dream holiday would include travelling over the space of a month or more as I feel like long flights are only worth it if you stay for a long time. I would love to go to Australia, New Zealand, Bora Bora, Singapore and all the little islands in that part of the world. Of course in Bora Bora I would love to stay in the rooms out at sea with glass floors and in Australia I want to try surfing on Bondi beach as I’ve never ever tried surfing even though I’m a strong swimmer! 

10. If you could have a selfie with anyone, who would it be? 

One thing I am definitely not is a fangirl, I like certain celebrities/people but definitely don’t “fangirl” over them. If I could have a selfie with ANYBODY it would probably just be somebody very important like the Queen or Barack Obama as not many people would be able to say they have a selfie with them!

11. What’s your opinion on the Kardashians? 

KUWTK is my guilty pleasure, I ogle at how beautiful they all are but my only quarm is that I have no idea what they’re famous for. Is Kim Kardashian only famous for her sex tape and naked selfies, probably. I defiantly prefer the Jenner side over the Kardashian side as I find them more genuine and not so full of drama.  
11 Random Facts About Me
