The Weekender Trender is written by Georgina, a West Yorkshire based blogger whose writing and blog has been somewhat of a constant within my mini blogging career, I honestly cannot remember a day when I haven't been reading Georgina's blog. From the brief spell in 2013 when she posted a photo every single day for a month to the trip to Disneyland in early 2014, Georgina's writing has made me smile for a good few years now. Her blog, mixed with outfit posts, holiday images and lifestyle notes is one which I can lose myself in for hours and I wholly recommend you check it out. Here's Georgina's happy interview!
What makes you want to get out of bed on a morning?
The thought of living another day to the fullest and doing something that will contribute to my future, the thought of making memories (especially now that I have a memory jar to put them all into) and the thought of eating breakfast helps too... in fact I'm getting hungry now just thinking about it!
Which five music tracks are destined to put a smile on your face and why?
My favourite tracks swap and change unbelievably often, but at the moment it's 'Nobody Love' by Tori Kelly, 'Sugar' by Maroon 5, 'From Eden' by Hozier, 'Research' by Big Sean featuring Ariana Grande, and 'Lips are Movin' by Meghan Trainor. I'm aware that I have a pretty varied music taste but these are all the ones that I usually can't help but start jamming to as soon as I hear the first few beats!
Name the best experience you've had so far in your life and why.
There hasn't been a singular event that's changed my life in particular, rather a collection of little moments that have defined who I am and my personal happiness, so I'm just gonna list a few if you don't mind! Playing the principal role in my college's musical production, overlooking my anxiety and beginning to drive, hitting 1000 blog followers, winning 'best customer service' at my work, meeting Rixton and Lawson (two of my favourite bands), completing an internship at a fashion magazine, and being offered a place on my first choice uni course!
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
I'd like to think that in five years time I'll have completed a degree in Fashion Communication and Promotion and will be working in the industry as an editorial stylist, based in London or abroad. I will also hopefully have ticked off quite a few places on my travel bucket list and my blog will have continued to grow.
What do you do to pick yourself up after a bad day?
I try to think of something positive that occurred to counteract the negativity, and if that doesn't work I get in my pjs and pamper myself, make a tumblr-worthy hot chocolate/cocktail, sing a little, watch videos of puppies doing funny things and read a motivational book.
Finally, what is happiness to you?
Wow, what a question. Happiness to me is being fully at ease with who I am and being complacent with my life, my achievements, my decisions, my appearance and my flaws. To not be bothered what others think about me as I have confidence in my own ability. To not depend on affection from others and instead to consider love as a welcome addition to my life and something that I can feel for myself, not just gain from other people. Happiness is living without fear and instead embracing the unknown and the daunting for everything it could add to my life, not detract from it.
