Questions from Lorna

1. What made you start blogging? On the University course I attended it was basically a necessity to have a presence in the blogging world. They saw it, and rightly so, as a great way of staying on top of trends, connecting and networking with potential taste makers and excising our own opinions on fashion and its neighboring fields. So, I started Give Me More and even though I am graduated now I still have the blogging bug.
2. Name your favourite blog. I don't and never have had a single favorite blog as they each have their own niche. I would go to a different blog for style inspiration and a different one for beauty for instance. But one I do hold highly is A Beautiful Mess. It is completely different to most blogs out there, including my own, has become a real brand and has managed to do something completely timely and relevant to today and the future! For pure visual indulgence it has gorgeous high res photography and ideas that I actually want to try for myself.
3. Who is your role model? Again I don't look up to a single person. I don't see celebrities as role models as I don't actually know them as people. I think we should look up to the ones we hold dearest. Best friends and family. They teach us the best lessons in life, inspire us and help us achieve our own aspirations. 
4. What is your favourite animal? Without a doubt it is our feline friend the cat. I have had them all my life and hold a very soft spot for them. I wouldn't ever class a place I am living in as a complete home without one. They are independent, stubborn and envied creatures that I just can't get enough of!
5. What is your dream job? Unfortunately, I can't give you an exact title. I have always loved writing and communicating and so something hands on and exciting in the realm of the written and spoken word would be pretty ideal. However, as someone who is also creative I enjoy working with visual and digital mediums such as advertising and marketing. So, I guess I can't really give a straight forward answer other than a job I am never bored in and enjoy getting up in the mornings for.
6. What would your dream holiday be? I guess a dream holiday would be one you have yet to experience. I have been to some lovely places in the world and had some great memories, especially in Europe. For instance I adore Barcelona and would love to return again and again. However, I am yet to feel the sands of Australia, see the forests of Canada and the snowyscapes of Scandinavia. So, somewhere with real outstanding natural beauty would be a dream holiday. 
7. What is your favourite beauty product? No particular brand or shade yet but the product would be a lipstick. I am yet to find one I can't live without but I like to try new things so, would probably never stick to the same shade. However, Mac lipsticks are always a personal favourite and also Bobbi Brown lipwear too.

8. How would you describe your style? Feminine, sophisticated and simple. I like to keep things neutral and accessible but that doesn't mean boring. An air of consideration is something I strive for. I like to look like a woman and embrace my curves and shape. So, dresses and skirts have always been a staple for me. I do adapt and embrace trends but in a subtle way. 
9. What is your favourite film? Honestly, I don't have one. I watch and like too many! There are those I watch again and again like Death Becomes Her, Edward Scissorhands, Disney classics, Pretty Woman and Grease. But a single favourite is too difficult! 
10. What is the best live event you have attended? Back in my alternative days I went to a festival in Leeds that had Fall Out Boy headlining and some great supporting acts like Hello Goodbye. 
11 What is your guilty pleasure? Chocolate, its a taste you can never get bored of.
