40 In depth questions.

As you read this, I'm probably on a train gallivanting to Wales to see Mr. Cat (yes, that is my cats name) and I am SO excited! This blog is meant to be a personal lifestyle blog, though I don't feel like I've shared any in depth information about myself to you guys so what I've decided to do is take the questions from this post and answer them truthfully. I did try and grab one of my old facebook notes (lol remember when those were a thing?!) but they all just went on about ex boyfriends and kissing so I thought I'd pass on that one and find some deeper questions to answer. Also, I'm starting a newsletter containing more personal content rambling about life, love and lessons - a bit like a monthly sleepover! I would LOVE for you to join! You can subscribe here - you know you want to!  So with out further ado here's the girl behind the blog!
