What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Rather than one particular thing, I'm mostly proud of myself for a certain time in my life. Dropping out of university was a huge thing for me, especially as I was so determined to go there so doing that and accepting that it didn't mean that I failed. But also moving myself back to London, as I knew that's where I wanted to be and I had to figure that out on my own.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Up until the age of around 15, I wanted to be a veterinary nurse. I loved animals growing up and still do, but I remember thinking for years and years that's what I wanted to be. In the town I grew up in, there was a college which specialised in those subjects and it used to have open days every now and then, so I used to ask my mum to take me along on the weekend. The dream was shattered when I found out I had to be good at science and I knew I wasn't even going to pass GCSE science.

What are some things that scare you?
The dark. I am terrified of the dark and have been since I was tiny. I used to have to fall asleep with a light on and if I woke up in the night in the dark, I used to spend (what felt like) hours cowering in the corner making sure nothing was around me. I still get freaked out about being in the dark now.

What was your life like growing up and in high school?
My life was very normal growing up, which I am very thankful for as it just meant I had my parents and my sister. As for high school, I never liked it. For as long as I can remember, I never enjoyed school no matter what happened. I never felt 100% comfortable with the people I went to school with, as much as I had great friends there. It took me until I was around 17/18 till I started to feel like I could be 'me'.

Are you in an introvert or an extrovert?
Relating to high school, I was always an introvert and still am mostly. I am a lot more confident around people, as I used to very shy, however I always prefer my own company. I've always had a small group of close knit friends, but I can easily talk to people and make friends now. Being the centre of attention is quite possibly my worst nightmare though.

I hope you enjoyed these few questions, I didn't go to personal but I liked the ones I picked out from a selection. The photos above where taken just before I started to write this post, in one of my most comfortable outfits as I knew it would take me longer than expected. The jeans are from New Look and they are the Blue Boyfriend Jean*, a super relaxed light wash jean which looks great both dressed up and down. I always go to New Look for their demin range now, both brilliant for the low price and last a lot longer than other retailers do.
