Amanda asked me a few questions about myself and this blog, here are my answers!
1. What is the story behind your blog’s name?
EllaScribbles grew out of a heart to help others (and myself) stop seeking perfection in everything and instead focus on having a go. My catch phrase is ‘A scribble has value’ because your first attempt might be messy but it’s gunna teach you loads in the long run.
2. What is the most exciting thing you’ve ever done?
I’ve been on the radio! I got picked to represent my school on a radio show in London which was fun. I met a guy from the X-factor…whose name I can’t remember now haha!
3. If you were on a deserted island and could only take 3 items with you, what would they be?
Bible, photos of my friends and family, and some tarpaulin (gotta throw a practical one in there haha!)
4. How long have you been blogging for?
For about 2 years now which has gone sooo fast. Truly believe starting a blog was one of the best decisions I’ve made though, it’s one of my favourite hobbies and I’ve met some lovely people through it.
5. What is your number one holy grail beauty product that you can’t live without?
It’s got to be moisturiser. I’m that girl sat in the shade with the eczema haha #realtalk I get crazy dry, flaky skin so I’m always on the look out for moisturisers that don’t irritate my skin and actually leave it feeling smooth.(any tips pass them my way).
6. If money wasn’t a factor, what would be your dream job?
I’d love to be a TV presenter and get to interview people who’ve done cool things to help/inspire others.
7. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
It’s got to be teleportation. I think it would be amazing to see so many incredible places and visit family across the world, without ever having to worry about money or travel time!
8. What inspires you the most?
In terms of creativity, there are soo many bloggers who are changing the game! I love finding new content on social media and getting inspired about my own writing/projects. In general life my mum inspires me, she balances loads, words really hard but always remains consistently calm and loving to our family.
9. What do you do for a living?
I’m a student so still living on that #studentbudget life. I do tutor for a little extra pocket money though 🙂
10. What is your favourite vacation spot?
I’m lucky enough to live near the sea-side and the beach is my favourite place to hang out with friends or when I need some quiet time. The South coast of England is full of beautiful places! Growing up we went to Ireland a lot during the holidays, so that’s one of my favourite spots too.
11. What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
Ok, sorry to be boring but I’m a self-confessed fussy eater so I’m not overly adventurous (I need to work on that!!). I had black rice the other day which I guess is pretty alternative?
If you’ve read through my answers, I just want to say I appreciate you. Yes, YOU!! Every single reader following along on this blogging journey- you’re seriously all the best. If you want to make my day, why not hit subscribe and never miss a scribble?! 😉
