Oh. Hello. I’m really not very consistent with writing blog posts am I? I said to myself everyday this week that I’ll at least start a few but then the sun came out and we had a heatwave and basically nothing got done because I was just too hot and didn’t want to spend hours looking at a screen.
Although, a few days ago I got a little notification that Katie from Katie Yvonne had tagged me in Vogue’s 73 questions and I thought it would be a great post to do, mainly so you guys can get to know me a bit more. Wether that’s a good or bad thing I’ll let you decide..
I’m probably one of the last people Vogue would interview to answer these questions so I was pretty pleased when Katie tagged me. It’s going to be a long one so grab a drink and let’s get to answering these questions, eh?

I don’t have a usual, I normally just go for anything I’m feeling at the time although right now I’m loving iced coffee’s.
