#MeetTheBeauties ││ Withanoceanview

Hey Everyone and welcome to this week's installment of #MeetTheBeauties. Today is all about Zoe from Withanoceanview.

1: Tell us a bit about yourself.

My name is Zoe, I'm 24 years old I'm a fiance to Nick and mummy to Mia and Robyn. I'm an Essex girl living in Cornwall which has been my home for the last 3 years. I love reading and drawing, second to writing drawing is something I've always been able to do. I'm currently on my own weightloss journey after a big weight gain and a little depression, pregnancy did not dwell well with me. I am constantly pushing myself to be more confident and to become a positive role model for my two little girls.

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

My blog name is - withanoceanview. I came up with this name because from my bedroom window I look out towards the Atlantic ocean. I love everything Ocean related and as I'd always wanted to live by the sea, I figured it was a fitting name for another place I feel comfortable sharing my thoughts, interests and views in. 

3: How long have you been blogging?

I started my blog August last year and after about one month I stopped thanks to bad morning sickness and when that passed I forgot until August this year when I wanted to start blogging again.

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

A mixture of things really, Nick encourages me a lot and watching out baby girls grow inspires me to be a role model for them to see me doing what I love which is writing, my dream is to be published one day whether I self-publish or not. I've been writing stories for so long that I wanted to finally try and write something great but something was holding me back. I thought I couldn't write because I had to be a mum and nothing else. I became really depressed about it until I realised along with Nicks encouragement that I don't have to just be a mum, I can be a writer as well. So writing my blog is my side line project to keep me inspired whilst I write my book and it's working really well so far. 

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

Just be yourself, write about what you're passionate about and never compare yourself to other bloggers. Everyone has their own writing style and way of doing things you just need to find your style and be comfortable in them enough to post your words, oh and believe in your words. If you don't believe in what your writing no-one else will.

6: Tell us a random fact about yourself.

I'm obsessed with conspiracy theories and all things supernatural . I find little connections in everything, I freak myself out a lot but I can't stop it.

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

When I started blogging and sharing my posts I believed that no-one would read my posts and if they did they'd tell me I wasn't a good writer, I felt like I would be judged but I now know that isn't the case at all, and it angers me that I almost let that stop me sharing my posts to a community that I've learned is pretty awesome. 

8: Describe your perfect Night in. 

It would easily be on the sofa with Nick and our girls, some chocolate and whatever we're currently binge watching on Netflix on the TV.

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

That's a tough one because all my posts are quite personal, I don't think I could chose just one. I particularly like writing posts where I share happy moments from my childhood or where I write about my family, or things I'm really passionate about.
