My favourite blog

As part of my Liebster Award nomination, I wanted to share with you my favourite blog that I turn to on a regular basis. I actually have numerous favourite blogs (…which I spend WAY too much of my time reading 😂) but one of the ones that I continually love and come back to is Lydia Elise Millen. In fact I suggest you also check out her YouTube videos, her Instagram and Twitter accounts because she is that great.

She is a UK blogger/ vlogger based in Milton Keynes. I originally was drawn to her blog because she has incredible style, she’s gorgeous and she has beautiful photos. After becoming a dedicated subscriber of her content, I have discovered that she is also kind, sweet, genuine and hilarious to watch. She shares her real life experiences. And although her life definitely seems incredible (…can’t wait until the day when I am flown by private jet to Paris for a perfume launch!), she also explains that she has hard days and has been through tough times to get where she is. I hope you check her out.

10 Things about me

  1. I’m half-Chinese and half-Caucasian. I’m first generation American on my mom’s side of the family 🙂
  2. I love to sing out loud to songs. I usually mess up the lyrics but that doesn’t stop me from channeling my inner Mariah.
  3. I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. The nasty ‘Nati!
  4. My favourite ice cream is Graeter’s black raspberry chip. (It’s local to Cincinnati. Woo!)
  5. I’m getting married on 26 August 2017 and I CANNOT WAIT!!!!! 👰🏻💍
  6. My first designer handbag was a Louis Vuitton pouchette which I bought when I was 14 or 15 with my allowance. 😂 My mom still tells me I wasted my money but it has doubled in value!! Can’t be too bad of a purchase.
  7. I cry all the time. When I’m sad, when I’m mad, when I feel loved, when I laugh too hard. I just can’t help it! My favourite is when I laugh too hard. 😊
  8. My celebrity crush is Jennifer Aniston. Always has been and always will be. I just love her! #girlcrush. Celebrity guy crush? Hmm Ryan Reynolds and Tom Hiddleston (gotta throw a Brit in there!)
  9. I have travelled a lot. But I still have a lot more to see! I have never set foot on these continents: South America, Australia, and Antartica.
  10. When I was younger I wanted to be a fashion designer. (I bet this is where you guys cue the *eye roll* lol).

    Ah thank you so much for nominating me!
    I also love singing 🙂 was in the school vocal group and we did a music tour round Italy lol! And Tom Hiddleston – great choice! 🙂 xx

    • Aww that’s so fun! I enjoy singing but definitely was not in any group/ choir. And tour around Italy?? That is so cool!!! What an awesome thing to have done when you were younger. You must have an amazing voice!

      Did you watch the Night Manager with Tom?? It’s so good. I want another season to come out. That was the first time I had seen him act! And only knew of his name when he started dating Taytay…shame on me probably! Speaking of TV what did you think of GoT the other day??


      • hannah

        Yeah it was so good! I was 17 at the time and we were let loose on our own, which I thought was amazing! Haha I was good at singing, but not sure about now as I haven’t practiced in years!

        Yes I did – that programme was amazing! Hugh Laurie was also fantastic in that! I did hear there might be another series coming out?! I hope it does! Same, hadn’t seen him in anything before – wouldn’t mind if he ended up playing Bond 😉 Ah loved the opening scene, I was like ‘yes Arya!!!’ I think it started a little slow, but you can feel it’s building up to something big! And then when Danearys finally got home I just started getting so excited!!!! What did you think?? It was hilarious when Ed Sheeran popped up haha
