Vogue 73 questions.

I wanted to do an about me page, but not the usual boring “hey im Andrea, 29 from norfolk”. I have recently been watching the vogue 73 questions videos. The aim of the game is to answer all 73 questions in under 10 minutes. So here we go, my vogue 73 questions. 1. What’s your favorite time of day? Evenings, family movie on the tv, and a giant bag of popcorn. 2. What’s your biggest weakness? Doubting myself. I do it over everything, my blog, my personal life, work life, even social media. 3. What’s your biggest strength? Being honest about motherhood. 4. What’s the biggest learning experience you’ve had? Becoming a parent, nothing prepares you. No matter how many pregnancy books you read. 5. What’s your idea of a perfect date? Romantic restaurant, followed by ice creams and a walk on the beach. 6. What’s one vice you wish you could give up? Comparison. 7. What’s a cause that is important to you? Teaching people about mental health. 8. What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received? That I am raising my children the right way (even though I believe there is no right way, its still nice to be praised on parenting) 9. When are you the most inspired? Scrolling through my favourite Instagram accounts. 10. Sweet or savory? Sweet all day, everyday. 11. What song can you listen to on repeat? Euphoria by loreen. It won Eurovision in 2012 and I have been hooked ever since. 12. What makes you smile the most? When the kids are all playing together, and not fighting. 13. What’s one thing people don’t know about you? I wish I was a trained opera singer. Honestly I have always been amazed by the beautiful voices. Maybe I can have a few lessons one day. 14. Heels
