Hope you enjoy it. If you’re a blogger and want to take part then get in touch. This weeks instalment features Even Angels Fall. You can check out the Even Angels Fall website here.
When did you start blogging?
I started my first blog back in January 2011 but I started Even Angels Fall in September 2015.
What inspired your blog name?
I had originally written a blog called ‘From Fallen Angel to Yummy Mummy’. When I started again, I wanted to distance myself from my first blog after the end of my first marriage, so I used a play on words from my nickname (fallen angel) and ‘Even Angels Fall’ was born.
What is your attitude to money – are you a spender or a saver?
I’m a total saver. We live on a tight budget currently, with only one income coming in and a rent to pay which is higher than our own income from the rent of our property. I keep tabs on how much money I have in each account and make sure I don’t spend more than we have.
What is the best bargain you have ever purchased?
My bridesmaid dresses were quite a big bargain. I got them from Miss Selfridge in the sale. They only ended up costing £7.50 each as there was also a buy one get one free on all sale items!
What is the biggest splurge you have ever made?
My camera was probably my biggest splurge other than cars… it cost around £400, which I know isn’t huge in comparison to some cameras, but it was a lot to spend on myself when I am usually so careful with money.
If you had £100,000 right now what would you do with it?
I would add a few bits to our Santorini wedding, book our honeymoon and put the rest towards our dream home.
If you could go back 10 years & give yourself one piece of money related advice what would it be?
Save the money you earn rather than blowing it. If I had of been careful with money before having children I might have been able to get on the property ladder.
What was the last item you purchased?
I bought dominoes pizza for my partner Ed’s birthday… before that it was a mini golf desk set as part of his birthday present. It was on sale as a Father’s Day gift – bargain.
