Day 1 - A simple introduction - 5 questions..let's go!

1. Who am I?
I'm Natasha *waves* and I'm originally from Nottingham (England). I've recently got back from backpacking around South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand and have recently started a new job in Events and Marketing within the footwear industry (and I'm REALLY excited about it!!) 

I'm a lover of food, travel, yoga, afternoon tea, sausage dogs, fairy lights, burgers, walks in the countryside, spring time, duvet days, lemon tea, vintage and antique furniture, horse riding, floral print, dip dyed hair, berries, spontaneous decisions, Mulberry leather, daisies and Nutella.

2. Why did I start blogging?
I graduated two years ago (where did that time go?!) with a degree in English Literature, Language and Creative Writing - after three years at uni, I missed writing and I started my blog. Time seems to fly by so quickly so I decided, as well as have Unorganised Chaos as my online diary, that it would also be a good way to keep my creative juices flowing and, one day, do something with the degree I had worked so hard on (...okay so, I only worked REALLY hard in my final year...)

3. Who is my blog for?
Probably an answer many bloggers would respond with - but my blog really is for me. Blogging is my hobby and something I love. I suppose over the past 12 months it's become a place for me to air my thoughts and talk about my travels. I've spoken about my struggles in the past or passed on advice related to these kind of things. And the good thing, people seem to read my rambling posts (which makes me super happy and I'm so flattered!)

4. What's something I have been working on lately that I'm really proud of?
Honestly? Getting my life back on track a little - nothing too overdramatic but I spent 9 months backpacking after a turbulent couple of years and getting back to normality was a bit of a shocker. Not as bad as I had thought but figuring out who I was in everyday life, not just who I was as a care free spirit on another hemisphere as well as trying to find a job I really felt passionate about AND just adjusting to the terrible British weather wasn't ideal. I've now got the job I feel passionate about (tick!), eliminated the things that don't make me happy or make me feel negative (tick!), I've got a lovely new home (tick!) and I'm getting back into strict healthy eating and back on top of my fitness (but we can ignore the big slice of cake a colleague gave me yesterday - oopsy!)

5. What's one message I hope people take away from my blog?
I hope people can see that what I write is 'real' and honest. If I'm writing about more serious topics, none of it is patronising or preaching - it's just my take on it, advice I can give, ways I've coped. Like I said, my blog is first and foremost for myself - anything I can give to anybody reading my posts is a bonus! AND I love the blogging community - everybody is so bloody nice so get in touch!!

I'm on Twitter and Instagram so don't be a stranger!
