As my 30th Birthday is on Sunday, its now my turn to do the Q&A blog post that we did with Emz in August. So lets have some fun and check out my answers below! Maybe find out a few things about me that you didn’t know!
Question 1- What are your nicknames?
I don’t have too many that actually stick but growing up there was blondie, Janey, Finooks and twiggy. Now only my brother gets away with calling me Janey haha.
Question 2- Where were you born?
Born and bred in Wellington NZ!!

Just the one Brother, that’s enough for me haha!
Question 4- How tall are you?

Question 6- What do you do for a living?
I work in procurement, so purchasing/buyer but I don’t buy anything fun like clothes and shoes haha that’s just a personal hobby
Question 7- Currently relationship status?
I’ve been with my boyfriend for 13 years next year, no we aren’t engaged or married on paper but feel like we are to us and that’s all that matters… although that gorgeous white dress and sparkly ring would be nice hahaha (he’s going to kill me if he reads this)
Question 8- What is your favourite food?
This is always such a hard question for me, I love all food, I suppose a specific would be chocolate strawberries.
Question 9- What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I actually wanted to be a lawyer but my original dream was to be a pop star… let’s just say I can hold a tune but best it’s kept to the confines of my house or my car
Question 10- What is your biggest fear?
Spiders, I know it seems very trivial but I can’t even look at photos, my boyfriend sends me photos to be horrible and I literally throw my phone across the room. My dog once chased me with a spider on his nose and it was the WORST night of my life.
Question 11- What is your favourite book?
Hmmm I always want to sound so well read and smart when answering questions like this hahaha but really it would probably be a book I had as a kid called my cat likes to hide in boxes.

Nars Foundation, everyone needs a base. Eyebrow pencil specifically bare minerals frame and define and “better than sex” mascara by too faced.
Question 15- Do you have any hobbies outside of blogging?
Reading, I love a good book and I have a massive bookcase full of them. Otherwise my hobby really is fashion, I love everything about it!

I learnt German at school becuase I didn’t want to be like everyone else and learn French or Japanese haha but I can only recal very basic words and sentences now.
Question 20- Where is your favourite place you’ve traveled to?
I would have to say New York, I think because I had wanted to go ever since I was 5 or 6 and when I finally got there when I was 24 it didn’t disappoint me at all, it was exactly as I had imagined, I still remember driving in and seeing that famous skyline and literally hyperventilating, Ben had to calm me down but it was the best ever!
Question 21- What is your favourite store to shop in?
There are way too many to name but top stores would have to be Zara, H&M and Kmart haha! Who doesn’t love Kmart!

Wizard of Oz, my mum says this is where I got my shoe obsession from. Who blames me really, those ruby red shoes are everything!!

It will probably always be pop but when I want to go out and really dance then I love Electronic dance music.
Question 25- If you could have lunch with three people dead or alive who would they be?
Another difficult one well I’ll start off with Britney Spears because I’ve always loved her so that would be cool, then maybe Marilyn Monroe and maybe Obama haha I really don’t know!
Question 26- When are you happiest?
When I’m with my closest friends and family
Question 27- What is your biggest regret in life so far?
We all have regrets and I suppose that’s what makes us who we are and how we learn to be better people. I think I regret things like not listening to my mum about things and generally just doing stupid things but again you learn from them and grow so sometimes they are a necessary evil.
Question 28- Do you have any tattos or piercings?
Im petrified of needles and so indecisive so I could never get a tattoo but I had my belly button pierced but took that out so now I’m just plain and simple with two piercings in each ear.
Question 29- What is your favourite quote?
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and one I always tell myself and everyone else is that everything happens for a reason and I really do believe in that.
Question 30- What’s the first thing on your “To Do” list after turning 30?
See more of the world, I love to travel and I think we should all do more of the things that we love and make us happy.
