HAPPY INTERVIEW: coloursandcarousels

February 20, 2015

This week I'm interviewing Charlotte, author of one of my long time favourites, 'Colours and Carousels.' Charlotte has the mix between lifestyle, fashion and everything else perfectly right and there's not a day goes by where I don't check my bloglovin page for an update. (is it bad Google now tells me I've visited 'many times?!') Her kitten is adorable and I recommend you take a wander through the net onto her blog! Here's the happiness interview, over and out!
What makes you want to get out of bed on a morning?
I used to hate getting out of bed in the morning but recently I've started to love having a few extra hours in the day to spend doing whatever I want. My day is a lot better if I can spend an hour or so in the morning with a cup of tea flicking through a magazine or catching up on blog posts, so getting up that little bit earlier really helps! Plus, it's usually so cold in my flat that I need to get up and put the radiator on...
What five music tracks are destined to put a smile on your face and why? 
It's difficult for me to narrow this down to just 5 but right now I'd say that they are The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson, Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars, Roar by Katy Perry, I'll Be Okay by McFly and Fancy by Iggy Azalea - they're guaranteed to perk up my mood and make me want to sing or dance my heart out!
Name the best experience you've had in your life so far and why.
It sounds a little bit cliche, but aside from family things, holidays with friends & my boyfriend I think my blog is probably one of the best experiences. It's taught me a lot about myself, who I am and what I want to do. I absolutely love writing and my blog provides one of the best outlets for this, whilst also letting me meet some amazing people. It's seriously boosted my confidence and being able to get my feelings out on a (digital) page really helps me.
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
In five years time I would like to be working my way towards my dream job (which I haven't quite decided on yet), still writing as much as possible, having enough time to spend with my friends & family whilst still being busy enough that I'm not bored. I want to be able to see a few new countries and have a killer wardrobe. In five years I think I'd like to be either in the process of moving out or have my own flat, but I want to be comfortable and secure before I do that.
What do you do to pick yourself up after a bad day?
After a bad day I typically treat myself to a night in front of the TV with a big bowl of pasta & cheese. Or on the rare occasion my bank balance is not looking too bad I do a bit of shopping, but I try to go for the food first! Aside from that I like to spend some time curled up in bed reading a book or cuddling my cat.
Finally, what is happiness to you?
Happiness is kind of difficult to define, but for me I'd say it's feeling comfortable and content with your current situation but still working towards a further goal. My friends, family & boyfriend are a big part of my happiness so I'm really lucky to have them in my life. Recently I've taken steps to address something that was making me really miserable so knowing that I have the freedom and control to change things that really bother me makes a big difference to my happiness.
Thank you so much Charlotte! If you would like to partake in the 'happy interview,' give me a shout at xoliviamae@gmail.com and I'll be sure to respond, have a lovely week y'all!
