It was a lovely surprise to discover that I’d been nominated to take part in the Liebster Q&A by Alicia a la mode. I don’t usually do the ‘chain mail’ type of activities but this seemed fun so am happy to join in.
Here goes …
1. How did you come up with your blog name?
The name That Welsh Blonde came about during Uni. Myself and my fellow blonde classmate Georgina joined up on team projects for our PR & Marketing coursework. As the only blondes in class, we whimsically named our project team Blonde PR. I was known as The Welsh Blonde, Georgina was English. That Welsh Blonde stuck from then on.
2.What season is you favourite when it comes to fashion, spring/summer or autumn/winter?
For me, its definitely Autumn! Its the time when you can still wear your summer clothes but make them all snuggly with big, fluffy cardigans and cosy boots.
3.What is your favourite clothing brand if you had to pick one?
I have several go-to brands but for a favourite, I’d have to choose Lipsy. I love how feminine the clothes are, how glamorous the dresses are and, as much as I know they are not the uber-trend anymore, but I lurve the velour tracksuits. Yes, I’m a Paris Hilton’ite!!
4.When did you first start to wear make up?
Oh my…its been decades!! I can remember sneaking my mum’s Avon blue eyeshadow, blue mascara and frosted pink lippy. Since that sounds seriously 80’s, I’m going to guess that I was about 6 or 7. I know I was wearing make up on the first day of high school, three different shades of pink eyeshadow. My daughter is following suit…stealing my make up.
5.Can you remember the first beauty product you ever bought?
Rimmel concealer stick in ivory. I recently started buying it again and its fighting its way between mine and my daughter’s make up bags.
6.Who is your favourite blogger?
There are some excellent bloggers out there but the person who I find inspiring is Victoria from inthefrow.com. I find her styling fabulous but more importantly, I find she is very friendly, relatable and honest. Always an enjoyable read!
7.Is there any celebrities that inspire you?
There are so many to be honest. I love celebrities who do a lot of charity work such as Angelina Jolie and her ethics when it comes to career, family and humanitarian work is so inspirational. I also admire Jennifer Lopez for her incredible business acumen. Above all though, JK Rowling. Her journey, her talent and her continuous charity work make her an absolute hero in my eyes!
8.What would be your dream job?
That’s an easy one. A writer. I am striving to be a full-time writer, taking on various projects such as my blog, a novel and screen-writing. I have trained with both ITV & BBC and I would love to translate my blog into a tv series …who knows. Maybe one day!
9.If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
America. More specifically, San Francisco or Chicago. Closer to home would be Reading. I lived there in my early twenties and loved it!
10.Would you ever have any tattoos?
The deed is done. There is no big poetic meaning behind it. I was just bored waiting for my fella to get his haircut in the barbers next door, so I went browsing in the tattoo shop….and came out 30 mins later with this; which my friend said looks like a ‘lick and stick’ Cheers!
11.What is your favourite time of year?
CHRISTMAS!!!!!!! It’s the most wonderful time of the year 🙂
