#MeetTheBeauties ││ The Lilac Linnet

Hey Everyone and welcome to this weeks installment of #MeetTheBeauties. Today is all about The Lilac Linnet

1: Tell us a bit about yourself.

Hello everyone!  I live in Cardiff with my boyfriend Oliver and our guinea pigs, Maggie and Lily.  I work full time but in my spare time you can find me reading, crocheting or writing to my penpals, and blogging all about it.

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

My blog name is The Lilac Linnet.  Lilac is my favourite colour and linnet is what my name means in English.  I thought it was a good fit! 

3: How long have you been blogging?

It's been a couple of years now, although for the first few months I had no idea what I was doing and barely posted anything haha.

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

I was reading other blogs and thought it looked like fun.  I decided, I want a piece of that! Plus I love to write so it seemed like the perfect hobby.

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

YES.  Write what you love to write about.  I used to think that I would have to write about fashion and beauty as a blogger but you can write about your passions, whether it's feminism, photography or food.

6: Tell us a random fact about yourself.

When I go to Starbucks I give a fake name to write on the cup! I usually go for Mary (no reason!).

7: How do you find inspiration for your posts?

I write about my daily life.  The trips I am going on around the UK, the books I am
reading, shopping hauls... I also write about issues which are close to my heart, like my experiences as a teenage cancer patient.

8: Describe your perfect Night in. 

This is a simple one for me.  First of all a meal with my boyfriend, something simple yet satisfying like pasta, then we'll watch a film together.  Then afterwards, I will catch up with my book.

9: Out of everything you have blogged about so far, do you have a faviourite post?

I couldn't choose one, but I love the posts about my travels because it's so nice for me to look back on them, like a diary.

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

Find me at 

Quick Fire Round

Bus or Train?
Train.  I always enjoy getting the train into town rather than the bus.
Jeans or Dress?
Dress.  I don't really like wearing jeans, I only have them to wear on days when I want to be casual.
Massage or Nap? 
Nap!  I find naps much more relaxing, plus I can do it for free at home rather than in a salon.
Rain or Sun?
Sun. Day after day of rain gets me down.
Fries or Fruit?
I love berries and melon more than chips!
Night in or Night out?
A Night in which includes blogging, watching TV with my boyfriend, reading or crocheting.
Stripes or Polka dots?
Ooh this is the toughest question!  I think I own more stripes than polka dots.
Starbucks or Costa?
Starbucks, but I am not sure why.  I only go there every few months anyway.
Chocolate or cake?
I love both, can I say chocolate cake?
Netflix or Amazon Prime?
Netflix.  I have never even tried a free trial with Amazon Prime.
