vogue's 73 questions

I’m a sucker for question posts like this one – I’ve seen so many people complete this, and just had to do it myself! I love finding out little things about my followers, and this one has some fun questions! Hopefully you’ll find this just as interesting to read..

At the time of writing this post, a month ago, we were still on holiday! It was absolutely fabulous, and I would die to be back on a beach in Greece..

2. What’s the best thing that has happened to you this year?

There have been so many amazing things that have happened this year – meeting my boyfriend, going on two holidays, getting back into blogging, exam results, finding out my sister is pregnant – it’s way too difficult to pick a single ‘best thing’!

Autumn – one hundred percent!

  • Take me back to a Greek beach with you hehe, I miss Greece so much! I am loving autumn this year but I am craving some sunshine! I am a big lover of walking when I need some alone time too, it really helps to centre yourself again and clears your head! I also live in flats, I’m 5ft 7 and my BF is 5ft 9 so he isn’t too happy if I am in heels haha 😉 Loved reading these answers, great to get to know you better!

    I love posts like this! I was tagged in it as well so will be doing it later this week! I’m so excited. I love Greece, I went to Corfu last year and it was amazing. I also know the boredom of unemployed life! Every day is a struggle to entertain myself. I have an interview next week though so hopefully I won’t have to deal with that for much longer! Great post <3
