Thank you Sarah
from Raiin Monkey

What’s your favourite insect?
Butterflies! They are such beautiful and diverse creatures. I have always been fascinated with how they achieve what they need to with such short life spans too. Most of you will know that I have a butterfly tattoo on my thigh that’s currently in-progress. I’ve started working with Ana
from Black Lodge
in Westbourne and she’s breathing new life into the work. Next we’re going to take the colours out like splashes of paint and make some abstract lines and shapes in the background. It will eventually go to my ankle!
Which do you prefer- white, milk or dark chocolate?
I get cravings for all three but milk chocolate is easily my favourite.
What is your favourite topic to blog about or type/style of post to write?
Feminism. It’s something that I feel so passionate about and there’s so many misconceptions about what feminism is/ what it’s fighting for. I write about a feminism that is intersectional
, sex positive
and that promotes queer theory
because I think that’s supporting and fighting for genuine equality at its fullest. I also love reading other people’s posts about feminism – some of my fave feminist bloggers are Tara
List one thing you’re looking forward to this summer.
Although it’s not set in stone, I’m really looking forward to a holiday! It’s been a stressful year already and I still haven’t seen a lot of the world. Whether its the rumored group trip to Amsterdam in August
or a weekend away with Josh, I am in dire need of some time away to relax and reflect.
What’s the best toy you’ve ever got inside a kinder egg?
Haha, what a brilliant question! I can’t really remember a lot of Kinder egg toys I’m afraid. I’d be interested to hear what other people got though.
Tell us about something embarassing or super adorable that you did when you were a child?
A story my Mama loves to tell people:
When I was about four or five,. I was obsessed with the late Stephen Gately from the band Boyzone. He came out on television and I immediately went to my mother and asked what ‘gay’ meant. She told me it was “when a man loves a man or a woman loves a woman”. I got a bit confused and said: “Well I must be gay Mummy, because I love you!”. CRINGE.
What’s your favourite lipstick shade?
At the moment I’m wearing all different shades! I’ve only recently started embracing colourful lip choices. My favourite I own is probably my Rimmel Lasting Finish 04
though – its so vampy and cool! (Update
: Unfortunately this shade is no longer being sold but I recommend these lipsticks nonetheless, they’re great.)
Last movie/tv show that made you cry?
I cry at nearly everything. Most recently it was at the TV show ‘Vets in Action’. There were two very small, weak kittens who were born early and neither of them made it. Josh had to give me a cuddle…
Name something on your wishlist right now & tell us why you want it.
Pins! I recently bought an oversized grey denim shirt and I’m gonna decorate the hell out of it. So far I have a Mockingjay pin that my friend Jake gave me from his Loot Crate
and a Space Kitty pin that I bought from Samantha Eynon
. On the back, I’m going to put this awesome patch that I won, specially made for me from the lovely Punkheart Patches. I’ve been eyeing up some great pins from a variety of stores so watch this space!
What’s your dream job?
I don’t have a specific job role that I am aiming towards. All I ask is that I get paid to write about things that interest me without selling my integrity. I don’t want to endorse a product that I don’t believe in or promote an organisation that I think is corrupt. I’d like my work to entertain and inform people but ultimately to inspire them to make up their own minds. If I can do that, I don’t mind where I work or what it’s called on paper.
Recommend a blog that you enjoy reading.
