So to start with I will list 11 facts about myself.

2. I teach media to over sixteen year olds and I love it I get to talk about music videos, TV programmes, films and play with cameras all day.

3. I used to work for the company that shot videos for the commonwealth and have been to Nigeria and India to shoot promo's as well as filming the queen.

4. I am a massive Rihanna fan which is not my normal kind of music but I am slightly obsessed with her.

5. I am going to Glastonbury for the first time this year and cannot wait.

6. I used to own a car with a Betty Boop sticker on the front when I was a teenager and have a small collection of Betty Boop items (bags, pictures, cuddly toy)

7. How to use the aperture probably on my camera only just clicked the other day and I have had it for 5 years.

8. My favourite food is peanut butter it is the BEST.

9. My favourite date night is dinner and a movie.

10. I used to work in a cocktail bar and knew 30 cocktails of by heart.

11. I have a birthmark on my head that looks like a bruise.

Below are the answers to the 11 questions I was asked.

What made you start your blog?
I started my blog for three reasons one is because I love fashion and was following a lot of other blogs and felt like I could do that, the second was to help me improve my photography and using my camera and the third was because I currently teach on a social media apprenticeship and thought it would be a good idea to practice what I preach.
Who is your favorite fashion icon?
Marina and the diamonds. I just love her style because she mixes old with new and doesn't really stick to one particular look. Below are a few examples.

What inspires you?
Music, London (especially Camden and Brick Lane), Movies, Blogs and Art.
What is your favorite type of food?
Peanut butter.
If you had one place to go to for free in the world, where would it be and why?
Japan, it just looks so completely different to anywhere else and has such random but cute shops that I want to visit.
What are your favorite stores that you love to shop at and why?
I do most my shopping online and below are my two favourite places to shop at, also I am a massive eBay user I love finding deals and clothing that no one else has.
Motel rocks I love everything about their patterns, clothing shape and style.

I love asos and have recently found asos marketplace which is a shop full of lots of vintage goodies it's amazing and again like eBay I just love the variety and the fact that there is less chance someone else will have it.
If it weren't for your blog, what else would you be doing?
Obsessing over instagram.
What keeps you motivated and positive?
My friends and family and the goals I set myself.
What is your favorite tv show?
This is another hard question because I have a few at the moment I am loving, The Walking Dead, Utopia, Misfits and I am a massive True Blood fan.
Where are you from?
I am from a little town near Cambridge it's about a 50 minute train journey from London.

So know is the bit I have been looking forward to recommending 9 blogs to you. So you can get a taste of what they are like I have included an image if you click on the image it will take you to their blog.
