13 Random Personal Questions – Blogtober #14

Blogging in general is hard and Blogtober is like the ultimate blogging challenge. Coming up with interesting content to post everyday is definitely a struggle at times. So today in a totally non original post I’m going to do a tag post. For those who don’t know tags are basically trends of questions / challenges that sweep around the internet.

Here we go.

What do I order at Starbucks?

This varies depending on the weather, my mood and what takes my fancy. If it’s hot outside then frappachinos are my go to. Coffee based not cream. Usually with sugar free caramel syrup. Alternatively I love a good caramal macchiato or white mocha. When the seasonal drinks appear I’m a total basic bitch and love a pumpkin spice latte or Peppermint mocha.

What’s one thing in my closet I couldn’t live without?

Not one thing but a collection. My sneakers / trainers for sure.  Although my Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac handbag is a second.

What’s one thing most people don’t know about me?

How close I am to my family. Good luck trying to keep a secret, it’s near impossible. People always seem surprised that I’m totally happy hanging around with family at the weekend rather than going out and getting drunk.

What’s one thing you’d love to do before you die?

I’m going to be totally boring and say have children and then become one of those mums who’s crazy into arts and crafts and over decorating at the holidays. I know lots of people will have probably answers this question with travel, but honestly I’m not that bothered. Home is where the heart is.

A food you can’t live without?

Not a food but a drink. I couldn’t go on without a cup of tea. I’m a British stereotype in that sense. #sorrynotsorry

What’s your favourite quote?

“Life’s not a competition, we’re all in a different race” It’s so easy to compare yourself to the person next to you, it’s easy to forget we all have different starting points and obstacles in the way.

What do you like and dislike about the blogging / YouTube community?

I hate how competitive it is and how as blogs/vlogs have become more popular, and more of a money earner, people basically become walking adverts. 

I love how it connects people. I find it so hard to talk to people in ‘real life’ so having the Internet as an outlet and way of meeting others, is just amazing.

Number one song on my iPhone right now?

My Spotify is a real mix. Go check out a whole post I did on it here. I’m loving a lot of noughties tunes right now. Old Skool as they say.



How would I describe my style?

More pajamas than clothes. I’m not getting dressed unless I really have to. Comfort is my main priority.

Favourite Number?

7 !! Haha I have no idea why

Name two hobbies you have?

Does sleep count ? Um blogging / livestreaming? I have no idea what to write. Oh god is this why I’m still single?

Name two things you can’t stand?

Just two? Are you sure? I mean I have a whole post if you’re interested (here). I dunno I’m just stupidly petty and have such a short fuse at the minute.

Do you have a guilty pleasure?

The whole Teen Mom Franchise. I’m so over it yet can’t stop watching. 

So there you have it. If you fancy answering the same questions. Why not tag me so I can see.

Hope you enjoyed

My Top 5 Favourite Sneakers – Blogtober #8

Sneakers / trainers / kicks, whatever you want to call them I’m a massive fan. Athleisure and sneakers are having a trendy moment right now and have increased massively in popularity over the years. Once the uniform of the local morning jogger or avid gym goer, they’re just as likely to be seen on the feet of some trendy twenty odd year old out to lunch with the girls. 

It’s not hard to understand their increase in popularity. They’re unbelievably comfortable, fashionable and most of all practical. More than what can be said for those rediculous heels you’ve worn once, will never wear again but just HAD to have. 

As a collector I have far more pairs of trainers than necessary and I’m not sorry in the slightest. However it meant narrowing them down to my top five, worth buying, worth the money, most comfortable was more than a little difficult.

I’ve decided not to go into too much detail on each pair as it would make this post crazy long. So look forward to more sneaker related bits in the future.
My 5 Favourite Pairs Of Sneakers

Reebok Classics – £40 – £60
If you’re going to buy a pair, buy the white. I would of included a picture of my white ones but they’re absolutely filthy.


Adidas Superstars – around £60

I’m sure everyone seen a pair of these before.


Adidas Ultraboost – £110

The best trainers for working out in and certainly the most comfortable. 


Puma Fierce – £70

Slip on, slip off, amazingly comfortable and available in a variety of colours


Adidas NMDs – £100

These are rediculously popular at the moment. New colour release fly off the shelf super quick. Sooo comfy and worth every penny
As you can tell, trainers / sneakers aren’t exactly cheap. I’d definitely recommend waiting for a sale, except in the case of NMDs where waiting may mean you miss out. Some pairs are better for the gym and some are better for day to day wear. Like I said I’ll include more details / a full review for each pair in a future post.
What are you rocking on your feet right now?

Footwear Friday – Week 1

So in my time off, I had a good think about the type of content I wanted to include going forward. Right from the get go I was pretty adamant I wanted to include some sort of footwear segment. Trainers / Sneakers, whatever you wish to call them, are a true passion of mine. Whilst I’ve only been collecting since late 2016. I feel I’ve built up quite the selection already.

So without further a due I present to you week 1 of ‘Footwear Friday’.

Puma by Rihanna Fenty Bow Sneakers in Sweet Lavender


Absolutely stunning right? Since RiRi hooked up with Puma they’ve constantly been producing knock out (and sell out) products. There’s no denying the popularity of Puma as a brand overall, has sky rocketed.

Part of Rihanna’s 2017 and second collab with them. Fenty fans knew to expect the Creepers and the Slides. These beauties however, are something a little different….actual sneakers.

Satin and bows feature heavily throughout the whole collection. Clothing, bags, hats. The slides, that may feature in a different ‘Footwear Friday’ are one of the most affordable and wearable items the bow is the main focal point of. 

Back to these though… A true statement piece I’m truly glad to have these in my collection. A true head turner and an almost certain way to grab those Instagram likes. Check out my Instagram here 

Their only downfall?? They’re so damn impractical. I live in Cornwall and there’s absolutely NO WAY these will survive the sandy beaches and muddy countryside. I’m not even going to try them. Satin and the rain don’t particularly go either unfortunately..Living in the U.K. we aren’t often blessed with sunny days.

So as beautiful as these are they’ll be staying in their box for now. Thankfully Fenty always pack their products amazingly and also include a dust bag.

I don’t regret buying them at all. They just aren’t an everyday type of shoe, at least not where I live.

Thoughts? Let me know 🙂
