Getting to know you

I am so excited to introduce this Lady to you. She's one of the first 'blogging' friends I made and I now consider her a very dear friend. She's sat in my sidebar for a whole month and we've only got round to doing her solo post now! We've been busy planning an exciting new venture I hope you'll all join in with soon :)

I asked Vanisha some random questions. My aim was for you guys to get to know her as well as I do.
Anyway enough of the introduction it's over to Vanisha.

Oooooo I do have one more thing to say.......I love this girl!

Why do you blog?

Initially, I blogged as a way to keep in touch with my friends and family but then I started enjoying writing posts (as a break from writing chapters!) Now I blog because blogging has allowed me to experiment with different writing styles and I've met and connected with so many wonderful people, businesses and organisations. 

What is your perfect career?

I'm certain it's academia and research for me. I was a lecturer at a university for two years, and those two years saw my happiness and enjoyment increase in leaps and bounds. My research involves working with children and young people. The next career I'm probably going to try is as a 'stay at home mum' I heard that's pretty awesome too! I think I have my perfect career - academia, research and independent consultancy (research) work. I'm lucky! 

What is the most important thing about friendship to you?

I only have a few really close friends, I can count them on the fingers of one hand. And I have known them for almost half my life. My two closest friends and I have never lived in the same country but we're as close as can be. Friendships have always been tricky for me. I think the most important thing about friendship to me would be honesty and maintenance! Maintaining the few amazing friends that I have got is important to me, I treat friendship like any other relationship - it  needs to be worked at. 

If you could wear clothes by one designer for the rest of your life who would it be?

One? Helen, you're killing me! From this post (on a week in my clothes) you would probably notice that I wear a lot of clothes from Cue. Cue is an over 40 year old Australian company, family-owned and made in Australia with the most amazing fabric from Europe. Lately I have said that I've felt a little uninspired when I walk into Cue shops, perhaps it's because I go so often - mixing it up is important. Maybe it would be Cue,but I also love vintage... 

Who are your 5 perfect dinner party guests and why?

I tend to do things in thematic groups when I can, so lets say I was having a blogger dinner party. I'd invite: 

Helen - obvious choice? Why? Because we already do couch talks together (stay tuned people!) and she's so kind and absolutely random, I love it! 

Hope in High Heels - Hope is so down to earth and she takes the nicest pictures, and I love hearing about her roof top dining experiences! 

Anna - We have so much in common, it's nuts. And in true dramatic fashion, she lived in Canberra BUT obviously fate would have it that we come across each others blogs once she moved away! 

Dawn - She's like the big sister I never had. And she won the first giveaway I ever hosted, so she's special to me like that! 

Cee - She's such an inspiration when it comes to style, not afraid to take risks and I've learnt so much from doing the living glamorously challenge with her!

Thanks V! Oh, we definitely have to have this dinner party soon too.

Y'all head over to Vanisha's blog, promise you won't be disappointed.
