 Beauty & The Breast's Questions to me 

Where did you grow up and was it a nice area? 
I grew up and still live in a small town in Fife Scotland, the area is nice but it is very dull, were an hour away from Edinburgh and Dundee so unless you drive it can get boring, however the boring aspects make it very safe, it is currently going through a regeneration so fingers crossed it gets a bit more exciting in the future. 

What are the best and worst parts about where you grew up? 
The worst is the lack of entertainment or things to do, during the economic crisis high point lots of stores closed down and this has made the shopping centre ghost-like, the best is that it's small, safe and a really nice place to live. (Not too busy but not to solitary) 

Where do you live now and is it a good, bad or indifferent place to live and why? 
I still stay in the same place in the next locality to where I was brought up as a child. My sons go to the same nursery school which is strange but nice at the same time. 

Why do you blog and how did you start? 
I wanted to connect with others but in a real way, blogging is something I love and I love to come back and read over old posts, I have always had a diary since I was really little and blogging to me is an extension of that. 

What is your all-time favourite blog and why? 
I have lots of favourites but my all time favourite is 'How About Orange' blog. It has a fantastic mix of crafting, time wasters and blog pretties to keep me procrastinating for hours on end. 

If you had to move and live in another country, where would you love to go? 
I love where I stay, to be honest, I've been abroad once as I like being here so much. If I 'had' to choose I would probably say Italy. 

Why are you interested in blogging about your chosen subject? 
I love fashion, beauty and living frugally, I love lots of beauty and fashion blogs but I wanted a blog that was more 'real' than other blogs. Many spend a fortune on buying clothes or a fortune on buying make-up to blog about but as I'm a mum I wanted to blog about fantastic 'affordable' beauty and fashion as well as having a blog that looked pretty, I could come back to and reflect on style, tips, tutorials, tricks and inspiring words and wisdom. I hope that I have accomplished this. 

Do you have a party trick and if so, what is it? 
Not really, I can click my hips in and out...... *whistles* 

What is your proudest achievement to date? 
My sons by a mile, I know it's the corny answer but I am a proud mamma who will always say her sons regardless of the amount of times I am asked. We didn't think we would be able to conceive and were waiting for news regarding starting Clomid for fertility, so to have 3 healthy, beautiful sons is amazing. 

What is your biggest and most humorous fail? 
Probably fashion wise, I have failed oh so many times in the fashion stakes. Off the top of my head, I cannot think of just the one fail. 

Do you have a favourite TV programme and what is it? 
I am a huge Vampire Diaries fan (as well as Supernatural).
