1. When and why did you start blogging?

I think it was around September 2013, because my boyfriend  and I were fed up of house sharing so we decided  to buy a caravan to put in his parents' garden to live in, so that we could save up to buy our own place. Before  we bought our beloved shack on wheels (RIP my first home) I  was trying to find out via the Internet  what it would be like to live in one and found there weren't  many people who had shared  anything like it, and those few who had were mostly male. Hence adventures  of lexington was born, I fell pregnant  accidentally two months later which meant we had to give up our caravan and the blog just sort of carried on growing.

2. With MP3'S and internet streaming, do you still buy CDs and DVDs?

Embarrassingly, I can be a bit of a dinosaur  when it comes to tech-y stuff. Aside from the apple way, I literally  have not the first clue how to download  something.  Plus, I really like collecting CDs and DVDs, and the same for books too. I like the way they look on shelves. I like the way you can visit  someone's house and learn things about them just from stuff sitting on shelves.

3. How would you describe your style of dress?

At the moment it's  definitely  more casual alternative  because I  just had a baby 8 months ago. Things have got to be practical  and comfortable so I  wear a lot of leggings and layers so that I can breastfeed  easily. Think band shirts and tartan. When I have the opportunity  to wear the clothes I  love the most it's  a mix of romantic, Victorian and Morticia Addams styles, I would say definitely dark and feminine.

4. What religion or philosophy do you ascribe to?

I have a real mishmash of moral beliefs and ideals swimming  about my conciousness, with definitive Satanic (Laveyan) and pagan influences. I think I probably  take a pinch of everything.  I have the triple moon symbol tattooed  on my wrist if that helps explain  anything. I like nature.

5. What are your favourite TV shows that are on the air right now?

Game of Thrones nut right here. I'll  watch almost any period drama, completely  head over heels for Ross Poldark at the moment and am rather partial to the history channel too. Documentaries only, none of that storage wars  crap.

6. What other hobbies do you participate in, besides blogging?

I take pilates classes, which I  love. I really enjoy cooking and I used to make novelty celebration  cakes when I actually  had my own kitchen. Same with crafts and sewing, I really miss it but our living situation  is very constricting in terms of space.

7. If you participate in the arts, which ones do participate in? Are you a hobbyist or a professional?

Not really. When I was a  kid I   wanted to be an actress, I took classes and starred in a lot of school plays and pantos, and my dear granny lovingly handmade every costume for me.

8. If a movie was being made about your life, which actor/actress would play you?

I have no idea. Although a lot of people used to say I  looked like that girl from spy  kids when I  was younger. You know the one with  the long brown hair and freckles.

9. Choose one: coffee or tea?

Nooooooooo! I have a caffeine  problem and I love both.  Though coffee more for the taste and if I feel like a snack, and tea is more for the occasion, sitting down to relax and enjoy.

10.  What colours have you dyed your hair? 

Pretty much all of them  I  think, I  am a serial hair-abuser.

11. Introvert, extrovert or ambivert?

All of them? It depends  on my mood. I used to be very shy before I  started working  in a bar when I  was 18, and although I still  have problems  meeting new people sometimes it has done wonders for my confidence. 

And finally my 11 random facts about me!

1. I have pale skin and freckles because my dad is Irish. My mum actually  has olive skin.

2. I don't  drive. Although this may be subject  to change  as my family are coercing me into taking lessons even though  I'm  terrified  of driving.

3. I have been living independently from my parents since I  was 16.

4. I studied  catering at college, but what I  actually  wanted to  do was floristry, which my mum talked me out of because  she thought it was a waste of time.

5. I got bullied at school.

6. Yep, I used to be emo. Woooooo.

7. My music tastes don't  fit in anywhere. I like a lot of things that have emotional  significance because  my mum would play music constantly in our house when I was growing  up. So aside from my metal head tendancies I like Prince and ABBA and Depeche Mode. And Nat King Cole.

8. I am actually  a really moral person. Maybe not in conventional  terms but if I feel like something  is or isn't  right then I will absolutely  not betray my own beliefs.

9. Ok deep breath nobody shoot me. I DON'T  LIKE CATS. My old child minder has this cat when I was little that was PURE FUCKING EVIL. Literally this cat was terrifying and used to attack people all the time, he would jump on you and try to scratch your eyes out when you were sleeping because  he wanted your  pillow. I spent so many hours lying awake and frozen  because that bastard cat was sitting on my feet waiting to pounce.

10. I swear too much. Such a potty mouth. It's  a terrible habit and I really need to kerb it now before Reegan starts talking.

11. Finally,  because bloggers almost never get to meet in real life there's something we rarely ever find out about eachother. I'm  5"7 and have huge feet!


  1. You don't like cats?! You can always learn floristry on your own right? Interesting answers

    1. Nope. They make me feel really uncomfortable, that one crazy cat put the fear in me for life! I have considered it yes, it will be going on my bucket list of skills I want to learn

  2. I love Poldark! I have the triple moon tattoo too!

    I also have one pale parent and one with darker skin, my mum is Chinese. My dad's side of the family all tan darker than I do, I got the super pale Celtic skin.

    1. Thats so cool! We have much in common then! :D

  3. Thanks for the shout-out! I am a complete dinosaur when it comes to technology as well! Also, while I do drive every day, I HATE it and think it is scary as all hell!

    1. No worries! I love makeup and love yout blog!

  4. I love band shirts and tartan! And I understand that you don't like cats, I didn't like them either, and now I only like my own black cat :3

    1. Band shirts and tartan are my safe clothes right now lol! Yeah, my gran did have this little black cat who died a few years ago but I looked after her when she went on holidays, she was timid and mostly kept to herself and that was fine by me lol.but she was sweet.
