My 11 Questions from Isabelle 

Q: If you could be living in a different time period (like the Victorian era, the 70s etc.) what would best fit you?

A: 1960’s London because of it’s counterculture and revolution against social norms such as clothes, sex, music and other formalities.

Q: What is your favourite comfort food?

A: That’s a tough one! I love food but for comfort I would have to say Indian food. I love all the flavours, spices and being able to mix and match so many different dishes.

Q: What is a country that’s still on your bucket list and why?

A: Too many! But Australia probably tops the list because I like the laid back vibe and I think Australians have been more switched on to health and wellness for a longer period than here in the UK.

Q: What’s the last book you read?

A: The 5 languages of love by Gary Chapman. Highly recommend the book, even if you are not currently in a relationship.

Q: What’s one of your all-time favourite movies?

A: Probably ‘Untouchable’ directed by Olivier Nakache. It is based on a true story and depicts an unlikely friendship. Very uplifting and funny!

Q: What’s your favourite way to wind down (yoga, meditation,sleep etc.)?

A: All of the above mentioned! I also find gardening very therapeutic, I love walking along the sea front, which I am lucky enough to be able to do in Brighton. I get a huge amount of enjoyment from cooking and I like curling up with a good book.

Q: What’s the last picture of yourself you’ve taken? (paste here)

Daz & I

A: This photo was taken last December and it is of myself and one of my oldest and dearest friends, Daz.

Q: Do you feel your age, younger or older?

A: Sometimes older, sometimes younger. I think in many ways age is irrelevant.

Q: What song are you listening to right now?

A: Set the tigers free – Villagers.

Q: Had you heard of the Liebster Award before I nominated you?

A: No, I read your blog post and then Googled!

Q: What’s some life advice you want to give anyone out there that’s reading this?

A: Always and unapologetically be yourself. Life is too short to be anything but and by being your authentic self you will attract like minded people to share in your journey.
