Interview With Helena From In A Few Nutshells

Today, I'm joined by the lovely Helena from In A Few Nutshells! I've been a reader of Helena's blog pretty much since the beginning and I still love it to this day. She's a talented blogger and a wonderful person so I'm very happy to be welcoming her on to my blog! I hope you enjoy getting to know Helena. You can see In A Few Nutshells here

Welcome to Through A Cat's Eyes! Let's just start with you saying a little bit about yourself and your blog, In A Few Nutshells.
Thank you for having me! So a little bit about me, I love fashion, photography, books, Narnia, frozen yoghurt, TFIOS, shopping, Harry Potter and many other things which I could go on. My blog is mainly a fashion and photography blog but I also to posts on books, beauty, DIY and just generally share the things I love with the world. I do a lot of outfit posts and inspiration posts too.

What inspired you to start blogging?
A couple of years ago, a discovered the YouTube world and I thought it looked really cool and exciting, but I have the self confidence of a slug and talking in front of people is one of my biggest fears so I wasn't brave enough to make my own videos. Then I discovered many of them had blogs also, which seemed more suited to me. I started following a few blogs, gradually found out more and more about the blogging community and eventually bit the bullet and started my own.

Do you have any blogging goals for 2014?
Consistent and scheduled posts. I have a issue with being organised, in that I never am and I end up photographing, writing and posting posts all in one go which is very rushed and stressful. I want to be more organised and get on top of it and make blogging higher on my list of priorities as I love it. In terms of numerical goals, 200 followers would be lovely :)

Where do you hope to see yourself and your blog in a few years?
Well I would love to still be blogging because I something I love and I want to keep doing it. I would like my blog be a little more well known and maybe have a better blog design, I'm not sure. I would also love to go to some blogger events as well or some fashion events :) In terms of my life, I would love to go to university.

How would you describe your style?
I don't think I have a set style; if I see something I like, I'll buy it whatever style, but I love combining simple things with more statement, daring items and I'm also very into the whole indie-urban-outfitters style (I wish it was cheaper so I could have it all) and summer vintage.

If you could only own 5 items of clothing, what would they be?
My white converse, Topshop jeans, a pair of high waisted shorts, a lace top and any one of the Brandy Melville dresses. I've got me eye on a few at the moment.

Who is your style icon?
I love picking up style inspiration from anywhere, on the streets, from my friends or in magazines but I love Zoella's style a lot. I just want everything she wears.

Which city would you most like to live in?
London I think. I live quite near already and I love the vibrancy and excitement of it. I just love being there. If not there then probably New York as that's the number one place I want to visit. I also love the New York style :)

What are your favourite and least favourite things about blogging?
My favourite thing is all the new things you learn and discover and all the new people you meet. The blogging world has introduced me to so many things I now love. My least favourite thing is that some posts can take a lot of time, which I sometimes don't have :(

Do you have any advice for anyone who is thinking about starting a blog?
Just be yourself and let your personality shine through in your posts. Write about things you love and don't post about things that everyone else is doing just because you think you need to fit it - you don't, that's the brilliance of blogging - tell people about what you love. Be unique and original and be you.
