Gotta Love This Girl !
Hi, I am starting a regular feature on my blog so I can introduce you to some of my favourite bloggers. I asked Rosie from then she'll carelessly cut you to be my first guinea pig and god bless her she agreed. Rosie's blog has a little bit of everything I love her style and she has the best accessories ever.
What are your goals for 2012?
I'm graduating soon but instead of planning a future career, I'm planning a trip to Asia in October. Sensible, I know! 2012 will, therefore, involve the following goals:
1. Find a job that I'll enjoy; preferably where I get to write
2. Find a place to live that links in well with the job
3. Travel to another place
What is the coolest thing in your wardrobe?
At the moment, I'm in love with my bright yellow tie-up blouse. It has a really cute zebra print that people reading my blog seemed to enjoy!
What trends do you like at the moment?
I'm completely in love with the trends for this spring/summer. The seventies revival has captured my heart the most; flowing skirts, signature crocheted pieces, floppy hats and jingly jangly jewellery. I love the overall carefree look, and am planning on going on a seventies overload this summer.
Where did you grow up?
I was born in Shropshire but only lived there for 2 years. I've spent the rest of my life in a little village called Mayland in Essex - imagine coastal walks, pleasant countryside and rubbish public transport.
If you had a super power what would it be?
I would be a teleporter so I could go wherever I want in the world at any time. I just love travelling more than anything. I like to think I'd have red glitter heels that I'd tap together too; Dorothy style.
What do you think are the 5 essential things for your wardrobe?
Denim jacket / tights / short shorts / brogues / cute jumpers
Is there any direction you want to take your blog?
I feel I need more posts that are specific to my blog. I have some posts that are recurring: 'details of the day' and 'film recommendation', which are going down well I think. I might instigate a post that happens on the same day every week but I want to come up with something truly original for it.
What's the nicest compliment you have ever received?
I really can't think of a stand-alone compliment. I receive wonderful compliments daily on my blog and am ridiculously grateful to have such sweet people following me. Reading other blogger's wonderful comments can honestly make my day. As for outside the blogging world, I was shortlisted for a competition at university last week and was mentioned on the website. It's the first time I've been mentioned and I felt just a little giddy when I read it!
Who is your celebrity crush?
How much time do you have? Haha. If I had to pick just one, I'm going to say Milo Ventimiglia; any Gilmore Girls fans will see my train of thought. Obviously my choice could change in five minutes though.
What's your guilty pleasure?
Singing at the top of my lungs in my car to Adele or eating any form of chocolate.
What's your favourite movie?
Oof, that's a toughie! I really enjoy watching a variety of films but am a sucker for a good musical. Easter Parade never fails to make me smile.
What's something you are spectacularly good at?
Without being too self-depracating, I can't think of anything I'm SPECTACULARLY good at. I like to think I'm good at writing mostly. I'm also relatively good at cooking and the performing arts.
Thanks so much Rosie I loved finding out more about you. If anyone is keen to be the next "Gotta Love this Girl" just drop me a email at firstname.lastname@example.org. and check out Rosie's blog then she'll carelessly cut you
