Feature Friday Q &A

Todays feature Friday is Marissa Dolan from INROOROOSWORLD.

Marissa is a very brave and courageous young woman and I am so glad to have her on my blog today.

Her openness warmed my heart and I hope it will with you.

On we go with the questions…

How long have you had diabetes for and had it ever stopped you from doing anything in life?

I have had Diabetes since the age of 4, in April 2018 it will be 20 long years. For me I have tried to not let this illness stop me from doing anything and so far it has yet to stop me.

A song that reminds you of your childhood?

Off the top of my head, the song that immediately comes to my mind is Wannabe by the Spice Girls. My sisters and I were (still are) HUGE fans and most likely always will be.

A song that makes you happy?

The first song that makes me the happiest has to be I Wanna Dance with Somebody by Whitney Houston.

A song that helps you through tough times?

Whenever I’m feeling down I hate to sound extremely corny but my go-to song is Fight Song by Rachel Platten. I love the message it gives and I can relate to it so much.

What famous person do you look up to and why?

I have a few celebs that I obsess over but, the most inspirational celebrity to me is Demi Lovato. She has been so open about her daily struggles and gives us all a reason to keep pushing through because she does with such grace and it’s very inspiring.

Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because I have always wanted to share my life story. Whether that’s about my diabetes or just daily tips I can give, I love sharing what I have been through and honestly blogging has helped me so much with being more outgoing and I love this community it’s amazing!

FEATURE FRIDAY Q & A

Todays Feature Friday blogger is AUTUMNSKYESBLOG who is a bit of a brainbox and I’m a little jealous as I wasn’t too academic at school.

What are you studying at the moment?

I’m in my third and penultimate year of Medical Sciences. I’m spending this year on placement working with a epidemiology research group – we statistically study enormous amounts of data to test whatever healthy-ageing-related hypothesis we want, collaborate with specialists and publish papers! (geek alert) To keep this short and sweet, having studied health data of half a million people I give you these tips to age well.

1) Keep your cardiovascular system (heart, blood vessels) healthy – the way to do that is exercise regularly and try to keep a fairly balanced diet avoiding the obvious fatty, sugary culprits! It reaaaally makes a difference in literally every way imaginable.

2) Build up muscle – you will thank yourself when you’re old. Sarcopenia (muscle mass, strength and quality loss) is rife among the elderly and it causes all sorts of problems. Aside from the obvious mobility issues, it can be linked to neurological disease as well… Even if you are predisposed to losing muscle, the more you have to begin with, the more ‘buffer’ you have until it becomes a problem, right?

3) Look after your mental health just as much as physical health.

I’m aware no one asked for a health lesson but nonetheless you’re welcome lol xoxo 

Where is your favourite place to get away to?

Berlin! When I’m there I get the feeling I don’t have in any other place – you know when a place just feels like YOUR place? It’s no wonder I got my identity-defining cactus-embroidered boy fit jeans from there! Berlin transformed me into my current careless self.

What would your dream job be?

Doctor! Failing that, a dog handler for the police or military!

Why did you start blogging? 

Funny story – I got in trouble at uni for not referencing properly and it made me so angry I almost did it to get back at the people – having a place to write where I don’t have to answer to anyone. Somewhere I don’t have to reference or have a word limit.

FEATURE FRIDAY Q & A

For this weeks Q and A I am joined by the wonderful Hannah from AMETHYST ROSE BEAUTY who’s blog posts have inspired me reading them and I hope they will inspire you too.

Here’s a few questions I came up with….

What quote do you love/live by?

I love the quote ‘Once you become fearless life becomes limitless’ because is so true. In life I realised I needed to be fearless in conquering things I wanted to achieve. Being fearless to me means not caring what others think or say, only doing things for me and things that make me happy. Then life really does become limitless, because there are no restrictions on what you can achieve!

What makes you feel confident?

Every time I wear a bold lip I feel so confident! No matter if it’s a simple makeup look or full glam a bold lip, it just makes me feel like I can conquer anything.

What is your signature make up look?

My go to signature makeup look would be winged liner and simple eyeshadow, a bold lip and a good highlight! It’s so quick to do but looks like so much more effort has gone into it!

Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging as it was something I had been thinking about doing for a while, and eventually thought there’s no time like the present! So I stopped putting it off and here we are today! Blogging about makeup, makeup looks and things I go through in life for me is very therapeutic. To write about my experiences and interact with others all over the world is amazing! I couldn’t imagine not blogging now!

FEATURE FRIDAY Q AND A

Welcome to my second Feature Friday. This week we have Alexandra from ALEXACEZA

I have only recently discovered her blog so it’s nice to learn some things about her too. So these are the questions I’ve come up with.

How long have you liked horses and how old were you when you first rode one?

Ever since I was little and could talk for that matter, were about horses. I loved how beautiful, powerful and graceful they looked like. It’s funny because both my mom and dad were surprised by my passion since they never mentioned riding or horses to me (they have never been on one themselves). Eventually as I grew older, they both figured that I wouldn’t stop talking about horses so they finally got me lessons when I was 8 years old.

What 3 things are you most grateful for?

1)My mom – my mom because she taught me to think and look at the world differently. She taught me to always look at the brighter side of life and to look forward to the experiences you want to happen.

2) My horse – I am very much grateful for the horse I have now since the previous ones I have owned always had some sort of health issue I was dealing with at the time and couldn’t ride much either. Orion is super healthy and has never given me any issues! I can rest my head at night knowing he is happy and healthy munching on some hay with his paddock mates! Plus the fact, I can go and ride whenever I want to.

3) My Life – I know this is a very vague answer but truly, I am very grateful and happy for my life. I know that I have been through my ups and downs, I have been through crazy situations but I have always come out stronger than before and much happier to have been lead through those experiences to where I am now. I was always so scared of getting older and not achieving things how I wanted to achieve them, but now I realize that sometimes we need to go through this life down a different path than we envisioned.

Where is your favourite destinations. Home & away?

Hmm, I can’t say I have been to many places yet but so far my favourite place away is Germany. I went there 2 years ago to Munich, Germany and it was just so beautiful! I love the culture, the food and the architecture. Everyone was so lovely, most people spoke English so it made me feel a lot more comfortable! The food, I honestly couldn’t get enough of, YUM and the sites were just stunning, every corner you would turn was so beautiful! I would highly recommend Germany.

At home, I love going to Niagara on the Lake in Ontario. It is one of my favourite places when I just want to get out of the city and go to a cute little town. It super cute and small, you can walk the little town in about 20 minutes! Try the cute cafes and restaurants, they are so worth it! Plus the lake is just a 10 minute walk from the city and it is so beautiful to sit in the park and just watch lake Ontario. I love it!

Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because I needed a creative outlet. I was always a very creative person and for whatever reason I stopped being creative for quite some time. I would always see someone drawing or painting or just using their creativity somehow and it made me feel sad so I needed to figure out a way how to use my creative talents once again! I would love to draw and paint but I am a perfectionist at heart and am very hard on myself when the drawing doesn’t come out the way I saw it in my head. So I needed to use my creativity differently.

 I also wanted to document my life somehow and be able to look back at it and give positive advice to folks. Blogging was just the perfect way to get started! I love how I challenge myself to think of what content would be useful and what people would love to read. It’s just a way for me to mentally “get out” of the office and into my own space.

A NEW SERIES FEATURING YOU

I have been blogging a little over a year now. I absolutely love documenting about the things I like and things that go on in my life. I want to add something different.

I want to include some of the fabulous bloggers of this world. The ones who I love to see online and enjoy every post they write and also newbies that I’ve only just discovered. 

I will either do a Q and A with a different blogger every week or just write a little piece about them. We shall see how it goes.

So watch this space and I hope to bring you more people to follow on their journeys.

Alternatively leave your blog link down below and I’ll be in touch.

Til next time 

It won’t stop me blogging 

Since I wrote my last post I was blue lighted to hospital again. With this unexplainable paralysis in my legs. Didn’t I feel pretty rotten and very much defeated.

After a week at home I had slowly but surely tried to get myself round the house using my walking stick and remembering all they told me when I was let home, but it somehow didn’t stop it from happening again.

I spent the last 5 days being tested and trying to find a diagnosis I’ve been told I have Functional Neurological Disorder which can happen to anyone at any age and some factors have contributed to mine. Here is where you can read more to what it is. No doubt I’ll touch on it in a later post.

FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER

I won’t let any illness stop me from writing. It’s been my passion since I could put pen to paper and it makes me happy.

So if my posts are not to schedule…I will post them whatever day I can, I guess when my body lets me.

Don’t worry I will keep them varied and not all health related from now on.

Have a fab weekend.
