I know it's been a huge long time since I have posted one of these features, and it's not because I started to hate their guts. In fact, I really love their guts, but I no longer had anyone to feature! (If you want to do a feature like this one, check out this post for more info!) Actually, that's not true. My friend, Fritha, here, has wanted to, but her email got lost in my box. So finally, here it is!! Happy Tuesday, friends!!

What is something interesting about you?
That my middle names are Moonbeatle Tigerlilly Quinn :) and I have never eaten meat in my whole life
Why did you begin blogging?
About a year ago although I only got my first hit in June! My uncle was my first follower shortly followed by my boyfriend and sister..I'm sure for the longest time it was just my family members reading it. Even now when I speak to my mum she says 'oh yes I saw that on your blog already' ha!
How long have you been blogging?
I would say I started blogging properly about June 2010, I would only blog about once a week back then but now I try to at least every other day :)
Who is your inspiration for writing and Where do you get your ideas?
I get my inspiration from my life and the things around me. I don't really plan my blog posts very much, I rather get an idea or feeling that I cant wait to share or a piece of art I have been working on. I would say that I'm not sure that my blog is either a lifestyle blog or a art blog, its a bit of both and everything in between. I think its a pretty good extension of myself as a person! I also think this is why I genuinely feel so thankful when people like it and the work I do.
Do you have any advice that you want to share with fellow lady bloggers?
I think it is a good idea to know what kind of feel you want your blog to have. I do try very hard not to be to negative even when I have been having a rough week, that being said I think if you are honest with your readers it will make you more approachable and your readers will connect with you more. Also sometimes it is good to share! The blogs I like to read are not just about pretty things they have found on the internet for example (although they are always good for a dose of inspiration) but ones that you can relate to.
What is one thing you are looking forward to most in your future (blog or otherwise)?
I am hoping to make a career for myself as a professional illustrator, and am very exited about the illustrative collective 'Tea and Crayons' that I have recently become part of with five other amazing illustrators. I also hope to start a family in the not so distant future! But mostly I am pretty content with my life in Bristol with my boyfriend and my two cats!
