I feel like in the past few months my blog has really grown, attracting new readers on a regular basis who probably don't actually know me.. only know me from whatever blog post they stumble on. Not a lot of people take the time to read your about page, if you do then I appreciate that. I thought adding some Questions and Answer posts in the mix of my blog content are a great way for attracting that and hopefully getting to know my followers in return. (This is until I build up the courage and time to go into YouTube!)

So yeah by using the hashtag #askcarpediememmie on Twitter here are is my first Q&A post for you to enjoy!

@lucyslensblog : WHAT DO YOU WANT DO AS A CAREER?
I have always swayed between a few things. I've come to a realisation in the past few months that I would love to do my PGCE and become a GCSE Dance Teacher so I'm going to start taking the first steps to make that happen after summer.

@Hannwinn : WHAT'S YOUR GO TO COCKTAIL?

That's easy and everybody knows for me it's a Mojito! ;)

@lifeofathinker : WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK?
I've always loved the Harry Potter series since I started reading it when it came out as I was growing up. I also love John Green books, in particular The Fault In Our Stars and my recent favourite is definitely Me Before You by JoJo Moyes.

@lifeofathinker : WHAT'S ON YOUR BUCKET LIST?
My bucket list is pretty hefty, I wrote a blog post about it a while ago (you can check that out here) but it's the usual; travel the world, do lots for charity, learn to drive, get married, have kids etc etc. I'm going to write up a Summer Bucket List soon because I have a SUMMER HOLIDAY (insane right?) and I have lots I'd like to do!

@lifeofathinker : HOW DID YOUR BLOG NAME COME ABOUT?
'Carpe Diem' is one of my life mottos, I think it's important to live life to it's fullest and I want to spread that thought too! Then Emmie has been my nickname since the days of Bebo and I thought they'd go hand in hand together.

@getalongwith_me : WHICH INDIAN FOOD DO YOU HAVE?
I always keep it simple and with what I enjoy most which is Chicken Tikka Masala with Pilau Rice, Cheese and Garlic Naan Bread and plenty of mango chutney with poppadoms! YUMMY!

@EmilinaLove : DO YOU SEE BLOGGING AS A POTIENTIAL CAREER OR JUST A HOBBY?
I think blogging will always inspire me for potential career choices, it inspired me to create a blog for young dancers but that dropped due to my jobs. It's more of a hobby for now, which makes me enjoy it even more if you ask me. I don't feel the pressure of relying on this blog for my income and that's kind of great really.

@blogsallbeautyy : HANDS DOWN FAVOURITE BEAUTY PRODUCT?
I'm not really into beauty products as such I'm just happy with whatever I'm comfortable with using. I'm really enjoying experimenting with some Soap and Glory make up products at the moment.

@JohnRdToVol : YOUR THOUGHTS ON FEMALES LEADING THE WAY IN THE BLOGGING COMMUNITY?
I think it's great that females are leading the way in the blogging community and it's something I am proud of as a woman myself. I have started to see more male bloggers emerging which is great and I just hope we're equally respected and loved in the blogging community. There's room for all of us.
