Ask me anything

Originally inspired by Zoella's Instagram story where she was answering questions on her top two favourites and where I midly attempted it myself, I thought this would be a fun little piece to share with you all.

Over the last week I have sat in various locations composing a small Q&A from coffee shops, in bed and out and about with my Kindle. During this time I also discovered many new artists to listen to which I am now a little obsessed with. It seems my once punk rock self is branching out!

Many of these questions have been inspired by a variation of other bloggers posts as see wanted to see what a typical get to know me post includes. The hype of doing this is long gone but who am I to say no to a old trend.

Ask me anything... when I hear this I always think back to the film starring Britt Robertson, which is most definitely not everyones cup of tea. A teenage girl who had a complicated start to life grows up with many underlying issues. She begins an anonymous blog where we see through the film the not always so kind reactions from her followers due to her brutal honesty.

The people in her life and those online struggle to understand her sexual nature and her complicated ways, ending with a scene making you really question everything...

Some who have seen this may think it an odd choice to talk about, although I feel it quite fitting. I want everyone to know who I am and get to know the real me, take it or leave it. I may not have the same past, the same nature or attitude as this character, but no one should be subject to the comments she received online and that consequences that happened to her.

So without further ado, here is a little more about little old me.
