  9. my bucket list consists of one thing: to visit the costa rica sloth sanctuary.
  10. about a boy is my favourite film, which tends to baffle many people, which then baffles me!
  11. i'm visiting new york next year with university and i can't wait.

my answers
  1. why did you start blogging?
    i initially started blogging as a way of talking about my illustration and design work, however i soon found out that i love babbling on about clothes/beauty and so naturally started to talk about those things more on my blog.
  2. if you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?
    a wetherspoons chicken burger meal - less than a fiver and delicious, can't go wrong!

  3. what is your favourite item to wear in your room? (includes: clothes, jewellery and make up)
    a good pair of chunky heels, my bowler hat and red lippy are among my favourites.
  4. the most recent film you watched and what did you think of it?
    the last film i watched that i'd previously seen was love actually (which is a fantastic film,) and the last film i watched that i hadn't previously seen was insidious 2 which definitely held my attention for the full film. slightly confusing in parts, though. 
  5. if you had one wish what would you wish for?
    to graduate university with a good grade and walk out into the big wide world knowing that my work was going to take me places.
  6. it's almost 2014, what's been your highlight of 2013?
    when i visited my dad in germany and got to see a real sloth for the first time in my life - it took all i had to not break down into tears of happiness in the middle of the zoo!
  7. you are only allowed to watch tv or listen to music for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
    probably music - i listen to music all day long when i'm sat working, and my workload means i generally don't have much spare time to actually watch tele, haha.
  8. what was the first gig/concert you went to?
    my first ever concert was to see robbie williams with my mum, however my first concert that i chose to attend was busted back in 2004 - it's still hard to believe that it was almost 10 years ago!
  9. what is your dream job?
    to draw bunnies, dragons, mermaids and other various fantastic creatures day in, day out and actually be able to pay my bills through doing so. if that's not at all possible, i'd happily dedicate my life to volunteering at the costa rica sloth sanctuary...
  10. any weird or hidden talents?
    not that i'm aware of, drawing's all i do!
  11. the most awarding thing you've experienced through blogging?
    i've had a few bloggers ask to feature my work on their own blogs which always feels great - it's nice to know that my work's making people smile!

my questions
  1. if you could be any animal, what would you be? 
  2. you've just won the lottery, what's the first thing you do?
