Answers to Emily's Questions
What is your dream career?
I would love to either be a full-time blogger, or (more likely) own my own in-home daycare, once I have my own kids. 
How often do you have no-makeup days?
I work Monday-Thursday, so my no-makeup days usually fall on Friday-Sunday...I love no-makeup days and wish I had more of them!
What's the weirdest food you've ever eaten?
I once ate a green-apple sucker with a cricket inside. Crickets taste disgusting, don't eat them!
How many languages can you speak?
1.5...I speak English (obviously), and I took Spanish all throughout high school and the first part of college, so while I used to be almost fluent in Spanish I am quickly losing my skills through lack of practice! I can still comprehend almost everything though, and have decent conversational skills.
Where is your favourite place in the world?
Hawaii! Hands down, favorite place ever.
 What's on your to-do list for tomorrow?
I actually have lots of school stuff to do tomorrow...class registration, a paper to write, 2 quizzes and 3 chapters of a textbook to read! 
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I'd like to say Hawaii, but I'm afraid living there full-time would make me appreciate it less. I would actually love to live in London, there seems to always be something going on!
What's your favourite item of clothing at the moment?
I recently bought a gorgeous black romper that has lace detailing and is really flattering...I'm kind of obsessed!
 Where do you see yourself in 5 years time? (And did you get Noah & The Whale stuck in your head just then like I did? We could be walking in a zooooo)
I did just get that song stuck in my head, so thank you for that ;) In five years I will be 26, so hopefully by then I will still be loving blogging and nannying, and maybe also have a significant other? Who knows! I'm very happy with my life at the moment, and I will be satisfied with whatever my life is like as long as I'm still surrounded by loving and supportive people and doing what I love.
What do you do in your spare time, other than blog?
I absolutely love cooking and trying out/creating new recipes...I also love reading, watching movies, drinking coffee, nannying (which is my job, but also something I really really love doing), and of course playing with my 3-month-old niece, Sophie :)
Why did you start your blog?
I've been reading blogs for years, and kept feeling like I had things to say! I was scared for a long time to start because I was afraid no one would like it or read it, but I've come to realize that even if no one else reads my blog, I absolutely love doing it. There's a quote I love that goes "So don't be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble and fall, because most of the time the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. Maybe you'll get everything you wish for. Maybe you'll get more than you ever could have imagined. Who knows where life will take you. The road is long and in the end, the journey is the destination." I realized that I was letting my fear of failure keep me from blogging, which was silly. So I started my blog in April and have been loving it ever since!
