How did your day go so far? 

My day is going wonderfully thank you 🙂 Just currently sat having lunch at work on a fine Tuesday afternoon.

What is your favorite breakfast? 

I’m going through a phase of loving jam on toast again, otherwise my fave breakfast normally would have to be a full english breakfast hehe!! As you can tell.. intensely dieting

What is something you’ve always wanted to try but you’re scared of to do?

I think there’s a lot of things to be honest haha but I think starting a Youtube channel has been something that’s been in my mind for yeeeears

What do enjoy doing apart of blogging?

I wish I had more hobbies haha but I love to sing to the point where people find it annoying unfortunately

What was the last song you listened too?

On the train to work this morning I was listening to Power by Little Mix 🙂

How do you want to call your children (if you want some?)?

For some strange strange reason, I think about children’s names a lot lol but I literally couldn’t tell you because my mind changes so often! It’s hard not to be put off a name because you know someone with that name who’s super annoying hahaha maybe Isobel could be a potential contender?

What is the best post you’ve ever written?

Is this based on stats? Because in that case I think it’s this one! 

Do you play an instrument?

I literally used to play everything under the SUN! I’ve had guitar lessons, piano,  flute.. but I was a silly little kid and I stopped them all and now I’m so incompetent with instruments.. woohoo WELL DONE JO👏👏

What is your favorite outfit you ever put together?

Ahhh this is too hard to answer!! I’ve had some outfits where on the day I was literally like “YEAAA GURL!” and now I look back at them and I’m like.. ok woah.. definitely not

How do you prepare your posts?

I have my life on my calendar on my laptop and I plan content and when I post by leaving myself a little note on my cal and I just set aside time in the evening to write the post then! I wish I had some cool tips for you all on this but I literally do it the most standard way haha!

Thank you so so much to Lee who was kind enough to nominate me for this pass, I can’t believe it, I’m so thankful – so PLEASE go check out here blog here. I’m sorry for having taken so long haha! 


  • Always include creators message & image
  • Thank the person you got the pass from
  • Answer the golden questions/tasks
  • Choose 2-3 bloggers to give the pass to (this person must be a frequent blogger with no less than 4 posts a month) and share link to their blogs
  • Post a screenshot of their blogs homepage. You can use mobile or desktop device. For desktop device try pressing the “Windows logo key + PrtScn/r. The file should automatically be saved to your pictures in a new folder titled “Screenshots” (if you are unable to screenshot for whatever reason, share a link to their most recent post)
  • Share link to a post of theirs that you recommend others to read. Give a brief description of that post or why you recommend that post.
  • Ask them each 1 unique question (about themselves or their blog)
  • Add “Golden Blogger Pass” to the tags when publishing

Creators Message/Message From Lee @GoldenPinkJournal

I created this “pass” as a way to engage with bloggers and help others find blogs they might be interested in. Now of course it can’t just be ANY blog, you can think of this like a special “invitation.” The only way to be invited is to be a frequent blogger. I didn’t want it to be exactly like the other amazing awards/tags here in the WordPress community already, but I also didn’t want it to be too different and difficult to understand. I put a lot of thought, time, and heart into this pass and it would really mean a lot to see it go far and have many bloggers participating. Please try not to pass to anyone it has already been passed to. If anyone can help me come up with a way of keeping track of this for everyone to see, please let me know.

Her post – Weekend Day Trip to Marblehead

Not only is Jenny the funniest, most supportive blogger EVER; her posts are so honest and interesting to read. Like the one I’ve linked about her trip to Marblehead, it’s so great to learn and get a glimpse into her life because it’s literally on the other end of the world to me and it’s great to get an idea as to what it’s like and to learn about all the different places she visits!

Unique question: Which blog post of yours is your favourite?

Her post – Dream House | A Girl Can Dream

Ughh I literally am in love with these ‘A Girl Can Dream’ posts! You NEED to go read this post of hers about the different things and designs she’d have in her dream home. The pictures and ideas are beyond dreamy and TOOO stunning it makes you want to cry. It makes me literally want my own house NOW and to just somehow be able to have unlimited money HAHA

Unique Question: What has been your favourite holiday to date?

Questions From Lee

How long have you been blogging? 

I have been blogging since the start of this year 🙂 I believe it was beginning of January!

How frequently do you post? Do you have a blogging schedule?

I don’t have a blogging schedule, even though I know I should! I try my best to post every week, roughly every Tuesday/Wednesday!!

Have you ever been invited to anything special? 

Gosh I don’t know to be honest, I don’t think I have! Recently I was invited to this famous footballer’s 21st birthday but that’s all I can think of? I feel like something will definitely come to me soon haha

Would you make blogging your profession or is there something else you want to have as your career? 

For the last year I’ve wanted to be either be working in PR or as a Buyer but if I had the option to really make blogging a big thing and a profession, I definitely would!

Post a link to your favorite post or the post with the most likes (of your own) and give a brief description about it:

X Factor Audition

Living on my own in my 20’s

These two post’s above have been my most popular and they’re definitely my faves too!! The first one (as you probably have guessed) described my recent X Factor audition experience (heelllaaaa tiring shiz btw). The second post is just a brief idea of what it’s been like living on my own this past year in London – a proper glimpse into how much I DON’T have my stuff together haha!!

Tell us what type of posts you’re most likely to read/blogs you’re most likely to follow

I looooveee all lifestyle posts e.g. posts about how to do things, or experiences or any interesting stories and topics. Yes.. I realise what I just typed was the most vague thing ever but I think I just like a little bit of everything! :):)

Give 1 great blogging tip/advice

I think engagement is the best thing to do! It’s such an amazing thing that you have a platform to talk about the things you love and so you should talk to people who share the same interests as you – or just anyone! Giving other bloggers support makes such a big difference, not only to them, but to how you come across as well and so COMMENT, COMMENT, COMMENT!!

Unique question from Lee: Would you rather live in a mansion with 10 other people, or a small apartment alone?

I like the idea of both but I would definitely pick a small apartment alone if I had a little apartment that was incredibly cute and pinteresty hehe

    It seems many of us started in January! Cool, I also think it’s pretty cool that you were invited to the football players party, not everyone will be able to say that 🙂 all of your answers were amazing even the one you call vague, it means you’re open minded✨

      1. Lee says:

        No problem☺️
        I thought that too about people starting as a New Years resolution lol. For me it was just at that time when I decided to go ahead, I also didn’t want to start in the middle of the year or something so I thought January would be a great month, then I could look back on the whole year.
        And I actually made a post here with a list of some of my favorite names😩😂 you should do so if you haven’t!
