INTERVIEW: Lady Writes (Stationary, Inspirational Women And Thor)

Hey everyone! This post has been a little delayed because I ended up hanging out with some of my friends but it is one that I'm very pleased with. So today I've asked the lovely Lady Writes a few questions about her blog and her interests. I've been chatting to her quite a bit on Twitter recently and I figured that you guys would really enjoy her blog so here we are! 

I've done a few similar posts over the past two months as I think it's really fun to get to know and support other people with similar interests. I've seen a few of these done by other bloggers as Q & A's but I just really like to feature these. If you fancy being interviewed for a future post, please do not hesitate to get in touch - my contact details are in the 'Contact Me' page.

On with the interview!

Can you give my readers an insight into what your blog is all about? 
Lady Writes is a lifestyle blog - it's a bit of everything. I blog about my life(style) so that includes beauty, fashion, parenting, thoughts etc. So I guess I like to think that I'm a little bit of everything - just like your average twenty-something!

I've entered your Kate Spade giveaway, you blog quite a bit about stationary... Any tips for keeping organised as a blogger?
I love stationery! It's a vice of mine, if I see cute stationery - I struggle to resist. The problem is that I buy loads and then if it's especially pretty I won't use it because I just want to look at it! Keeping organised is something I've wanted to avoid (I'm stubborn!)- I always liked to think I could keep track of things by myself, but now I'm a little bit older (and wiser!) I realise I need to write things down. To keep organised as a blogger my tips would be to get a planner and pre-plan your posts, themes, blog chats etc - just make sure you plan ahead and you won't go far wrong, and you'll find you won't struggle for topics if you've already planned ahead and have a spot of writers block.

If you could only blog about one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
That's a tricky one! I've been a writer for years, I love to write, so as long as the topic was something I loved - (which is most of the things I write about now) then I'd be happy! Is that a cop out answer?!

You recently blogged about inspirational women, do you take influence from them? How?
I really do take inspiration from women who've used their power/status to make a difference. I think that life gets busy, and stressful and we can all sometimes forget that there is so much going on in the world that's bigger than ourselves. Women like Audrey Hepburn who strive to change the lives of people in need, even when they have cancer themselves - they inspire me. If she can do that, then I can be involved in things like the Random Acts of Kindness foundation, pay it forward etc. It doesn't have to be a lot, but women like her really motivate me to do my bit on a daily basis, in my small circle of the world - no matter how teeny that may be.

Any tips to new bloggers or people considering starting a blog?
Go for it! If you've been thinking of blogging - do it! It's brilliant, fun, cathartic and you meet so many lovely and like-minded people. But my tip would be - be prepared to get addicted! 

What is your profession? Is it what you want to do or do you have other ambitions?
I am a Social Media & Digital Marketing Manager. I absolutely love it. I've worked in marketing for nearly ten years and specialised in social media for approximately 6 years now. It's my dream job, and I love it. I never knew what I wanted to do when I was at school and I was very fortunate to find my way to this point.

You seem to reflect on past experiences quite a bit on This Lady Writes, do you have any regrets about the past?
No. One of my motto's in life is that I have no regrets. If I had regrets I would dwell on them, and what's the point in that, you can't change things? So I prefer to look at every experience as something that's contributed to who I am. Don't get me wrong, hindsight is a wonderful thing! And if I could know what I know now, and go back and change things, I probably would. But overall, I live in the present, I don't dwell on the past unless to learn from it. So, Lady Writes doesn't do regrets...or tries not to!

What do you like to do to relax and take a break?
Blog! Writing is my thing! But to relax I love to find a TV series and binge. I love to get all my favourite foods, get in my comfy clothes, get my bunhead out and just immerse myself into a fab TV series (I'm watching Once Upon A Time at the moment!) I'm also big into naps. I love a good nap! Oh, and a bubble bath. Bubble baths are gooood...

Do you have an idol? This can be blogger, celebrity or character...
Reese Witherspoon - I mentioned her as one of the women who've inspired me. I love that she's vocal about parenting being hard, she doesn't try and kid everyone that the life of a  celeb is all easy-peasy, she's down to earth and family orientated. Yet she's driven and has a really inspiring entrepreneurial spirit, and has a great career. She shows that you can do it all, it just won't be easy!

Celebrity crush?
Hands down - Chris Hemsworth...Thor...nuff' said.

So, that's my interview with Lady Writes all done and dusted. I hope you've enjoyed this post because I sure have, I hope we can work together again sometime soon! Anyway, thanks for reading, it's very much appreciate it.
