#MeetTheBeauties ││ Kat CandyFlossDreams

Hey Everyone and welcome to this weeks installment of #MeetTheBeauties. Today is all about Kat from CandyFlossDreams
I fist came across Kat's blog in the #Coolmumclub linky a little while back and I was just hooked on reading her posts. One that I really enjoyed was "How to make a Disney Autograph book"  I love anything glittery and sparkly so I really enjoyed her pictures in this post. All her stuff is well done and one of her most recent posts about pokemon go really pulled me in since I am ADDICTED to that game. I just know that once you have read this interview you will want to go check out her blog, so show some love! 
So without further adieu, Lets learn a little more about Kat from CandyFlossDreams.

1: Tell us a bit about yourself.

I'm Kayleigh although known as Kat in the blogging world. I'm 27 and mum to one daughter, Mini Kat, refuses to go by the name Evangeline who is now in school. I live in a large town in Hampshire with my partner Adam and I work full time from home as a blogger and writer. I am currently doing a creative writing course, want to write a book and love to cook and holiday! 

2: What is your blog name and how did you come up with it?

Candyfloss & Dreams - the credit to the name is due to my boyfriend who came up with it one day. I told him about blogging and how bad I was at coming up with names so he helped.

3: How long have you been blogging?

I started Candyfloss & Dreams in 2013 but I was blogging before then on and off. It took me a while to find my 'voice' through other blogs so I'd say around five years altogether. 

4: Who/What Inspired you to start a blog?

My boyfriend really helped me to start blogging again but it was after coming out of a very difficult relationship and becoming a single parent that I wanted to share my story and show that there is light at the end of the tunnel so to speak. I wanted to share my happy ending. 

5: Do you have a tip you can share for new bloggers?

Engage with the community from day one, there are plenty of Instagram communities, linkys and facebook groups that offer support and advice, I have found some great friends in them. I would also say if there's a blog event that is coming up and you're interested in attending, then do try and go. You don't need to be a "big enough" blogger! They are great. 

6: Tell us a random fact about yourself.

I'm a huge fan of gaming, I love online MMORPGs, consoles, nintendo...if I'm not working or reading, I'll guarantee you I'll be playing some sort of game! 

7: Is there anything you know now that you wish you knew when you started blogging?

I wish I had known about the community from the start because I think my blog would feel more established now. I know stats aren't everything but I feel like I could have worked a lot harder in promoting what I had to say at the beginning which could have helped people with the issues I was writing about at the time. I've also gained some really lovely friends in the blogging world which is great and now feel comfortable going to events and meet ups. 

8: Describe your perfect Night in. 

A night where my partner is off working, we're all together as a family hunting each other down with nerf guns, family movie and a Chinese!

9: Looking back, Do you have a favourite post/topic that you have talked about?

I'm really proud that I've shared my experience of raising a child after being in an abusive relationship and showing that you can move on from it and have a happy ending with a partner that treats you with respect and love. I want others that have gone through the same thing, or are going through the same thing to know that when they are able to leave that situation, they will cope, they will be good enough parents, they will meet new friends, they will have support and they will be loved again. An abusive relationship does not mean the end of relationships with people. You will be okay. 

10: What are your links, where can we find you?

Quick Fire Round;

Bus or Train?
Beach or Pool?
Cats or Dogs? 
Bath or Shower?
Pizza or Pasta?
Night in or Night out?
Music or Movies?
Fizzy Juice or Hot Drinks?
Chocolate or cake?
