Usually I plan out my blogs at least four weeks in advance.. but this week I wasn’t really feeling what I had planned. I decided I wanted to write something light and easy, which is definitely different from the usual advice and what not, but why not?
Sooo, I’ve decided to do a Question Tag, because I’ve realised that you guys don’t really know me (it’s like I’m just one random girl giving you all this advice through the internet, lmao). I do enjoy my small small anonymity, but I also want you guys to know who I am as a person.
