About Me: Q&A/Interview

Monday, 11 November 2013


Hey guys!

As part of #Britishbloggerselection, I decided to start off the week with a Q&A themed post, to help you all get to know me a little better and what my blog's all about. I did a post a little like this a while back, when I first started my blog, but it won't do any harm in writing one again, especially if it helps new visitors get to see my personality a bit more!

Oh, and I do very much enjoy answering them too. ;-)

Let's begin!

Question One: Why do you like blogging?

Like many girls, I love reading about fashion, beauty, and various other feminine things. I also discovered, after starting this blog, that I loved to write about it, and since a magazine journalist is my future ambition in mind, I decided that starting a blog would be the best possible stepping zone to that dream! But asides from that, I've learned that during my time blogging, I've grown to love it as a means to express my creativity, develop my sense of self, and connect with others. It's a great hobby full stop!

Question Two: How did you come up with your blog name?

Haha, this is a pretty funny story actually (well, funny in my mind). Back in the days when I owned many blogs that I had no idea what to do with, and never put much effort into, I owned one named emiliciaa.blogspot.com. Looking at this blog now, and admittedly rather cringey posts, it mainly served as a random extrapolation of my thoughts that occured from time to time. I've realised it no longer serves much a purpose, since I have this current one to work on, but it's nice to look back on sometimes, so I've kept it there.

But ANYHOO - the word 'emilicia' is a combination of both my first name (Emily) and confirmation name (Alicia). It was hard coming up with anything unique at the time, so that's really how it was born, and voila! I simply added the word 'Style' to this blog as a way of identifying this website as a 'style specific' blog.

Question Three: Where in the UK do you come from?

I live in a little town by the seaside in the North that barely anybody has heard of - Southport. If you're confused, it's in Merseyside, and a close resident is Liverpool - but no, I don't have a scouse accent! I actually know only one or two people from here who also own fashion blogs, haha.

Question Four:  Favourite colour?

This is probably an obvious one, but pink will always be a favourite. Closely coming second is electric/cobalt blue.

Question Five: Do you like Lana Del Ray?

Honestly, I don't really care about her. I'm not the biggest fan of her music since I find it a little depressing (though I hate sad songs in general, so I may be a little biased haha) but I haven't really given her a proper listen, or much thought, to make an informed judgement.

Question Six: Hidden talents that you have?

I really can't say that I have any 'hidden' talents! That said, I wouldn't say I have any particular 'talents' in general :-P but, I suppose I'm not bad at writing!

Question Seven: Celebrity crush?

I have a few really, but I absolutely love Ryan Gosling and Channing Tatum in particular. <3

Question Eight: Favourite blog of all time?

That is a tough one! I'd probably say galadarling, though - she has one of the few blogs that I actually return to time and time again, and could read for hours if I had the time. I love how inspiring and uplifting her posts are. :-)

Oh, and I love Tiny Buddha, though it's not really a blog, more a collection of people's individual articles!

Question Nine: What made you want to join #BrittishBloggerSelection?

I'm always looking to seize as many opportunities as I can when it comes to my blog, and I saw this as the perfect opportunity to connect with other local bloggers and get my blog out there. Plus, it seemed like (and is) a lot of fun!

Got any more questions you'd like to ask me? If you'd like to get involved in the #BritishBloggerSelection yourself, just read this post here for details.

Hope you're all having a happy Monday! x
