What inspired you to start a blog?
I wanted to create my own personal outlet where I could share my views on topics surrounding mental health as well as my journey through life.
How do you overcome your fears?
This is such a tough question; I try to take the negative and turn into something more positive instead of ignoring it and letting it manifest.
What is one thing that you want to cross off your bucket list this year?
To go on holiday or start saving up for one!
If you could give your 16-year-old self advice, what would it be?
Believe in yourself, because you have no idea what you are capable of.
What is your favourite blog to follow?
I cannot just pick one because I follow quite a lot but I will name a few:
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
What has been your biggest blogging challenge that you have overcome?
Probably my mental health – I get very stressed out and overwhelmed by the simplest of things so juggling university, deadlines, personal stuff and blogging is difficult. And I feel I have quite a high expectation of myself so when I have an off week, where no content is being posted, it makes me sad.
What is the most random thing that has ever happened to you?
I got hit on my an elderly lady when I was with my boyfriend. We were walking down town and she stopped me by grabbing my arm; I thought she was going to ask for directions. But she turned round to Matthew and said something like “do you have any idea how pretty she is? You are a lucky man”. It made my day!
Where is your favourite place you have ever been?
Disney World Orlando.
If you had to summarise you life in 3 songs, what would they be?
- McFly – Walk in the Sun
- Basic Tape – No Matter
- ABBA – Dancing Queen
