1. What 5 words describe your life?

I can't just do 5 words, I have way too much to say ..... It's a roller-coaster of ups and downs, but full of laughter, although somewhat dull at times

2. What's something that people won't already know about you?

I'm sure there has to be something way more interesting than this, but I can write with my toes

3. How many 'real' friends do you have VS your likers/followers/FB

Oh I love my friends to pieces, I have a close circle of 8 girlfriends.  About 3 or 4 social media peeps have become proper friends, which is amazing.
FB friends - don't really care, I only use it because you need an account to have a group, which means way more to me and they're an amazing group of women and I feel very lucky to know them

4. What makes you feel vulnerable?

Dear god, how come this one seems so easy to answer.  Answering 7 questions about myself honestly without thinking I sound like a twat!  Failing.  Not feeling good in what I wear - this is a huge one for me as I use clothes A LOT to build my confidence.  Low confidence.  Social Media.  Anxiety

5. Do you dare to dream or do you think dreams only come true for

I dare to dream, I just don't seem to have the confidence to see those dreams through (see question 4).  I'm my own worst enemy

6. What one piece of advice would you give other women about life?

Take time for you.  Even if it's giving yourself an extra half hour to make a proper lunch rather than hiding in the cupboard and snacking on biscuits when the 3-year-old can't see you.  We're just as important as everyone else in our lives and it's OK to put ourselves first sometimes.

7. When did you last shave your pits/legs?

Legs I think about 2 weeks ago, I can't actually remember and when I do it's usually only up to my shin so that when I sit down in my jeans my legs look smooth!!!  Pits, I'm an every other day gal.
