My Favourite Blog

It's hard to choose a favourite blog as I have many blogs that I adore and read regularly. However I have decided to write about Zoe London. With over 16,000 followers on Bloglovin' alone it would surprise me if you haven't heard of her or seen her blog, but once you do it is very easy to understand why she has such a large following. Her content is unique and captivating, with beautiful imagery and creative posts. Her music and travel posts interest me in particular and her blog is one that I like to keep up to date with, as it inspires me a lot. Her content has such a wide variety from beauty and fashion to music, lifestyle and travel, but whatever she is writing about it is always genuine and fun to read. 

My Answers

  • Who is your role model? I wouldn't say I really have a role model in particular, but I have and will always look up to my dad as he is the hardest working person I know. I also look up to Noel Fielding for his creative ability, free spirit and imagination. 
  • Who is your favourite fictional character? This is so difficult that I don't think I can actually chose one. I don't really have a franchise or character that I'm crazy about enough to call a favourite. Although I recently finished catching up on The Walking Dead with my boyfriend, and I've fallen in love with Negan a little bit. 
  • Do you prefer movies or books? I definitely prefer movies as I am more of a visual person. I do enjoy reading sometimes but I find it easier to relax after a long day with a movie and a cup of tea, than with a book.

  • How many countries have you visited? I've only visited 5 different countries, but I would love to travel more and see the world.

  • If you could eat only one food for the rest of your life, what would that be? I think it would have to be the Mexican bean burgers that I had at Download Festival this year. They were so delicious and I actually enjoyed eating them every day for five days. They're also vegan.
  • What is your favourite song? My favourite song changes all of the time (my monthly favourites proves this), but a standard favourite song is Lionheart - Bury Tomorrow. At the moment though I can't stop listening to King Park - La Dispute, again.
  • Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings? Lord of the Rings. It took me a long time to get round to watching the movies as I thought I would hate them, and when I finally gave it I really enjoyed it. I did think that 3 hours to get to Mordor was a bit ridiculous, but I think they are good films aesthetically and the narrative is interesting. I do like Harry Potter but I lose interest as the story goes on.
  • What's is your favourite ancient civilisation? I have loved learning about history since I was a child, but the ancient Egyptians always caught my attention. The Egyptian beliefs and traditions interest me a lot, and I actually watched a very good documentary on Tutankhamun a few weeks ago that I really enjoyed. 
  • What is the weirdest dream you have had? My dreams are usually weird and difficult to put together when I wake up the next day. I rarely remember them and right now, I can't think of anything in particular. However, I once had a nightmare that contained medical needles stuck in an Elmo toy.
  • Describe your morning routine: Difficulty to wake up with snoozing the alarm a lot, followed by coffee.
  • Would you like to have a pet dragon? Definitely, as long as it would be like Khaleesi with her dragons.
