Let Me Introduce You To Laura!

My lovely friend Laura, aka livingforthenow and myself decided to ask each other ten questions for one anothers blog!


1. So Laura! Introduce yourself and what is your blog about?

Hey! I’m 24, born and bred in Surrey, England. I have an odd sense of humour, an obsession with cats and I enjoy blogging, sleeping, coffee and movies. My blog… Hmmm.. Well it was originally about my travelling but it became more about life and making the most out of the small things. I like to give advice, do the odd fashion posts and give tips on some of the places I’ve been to.

2. Out of all the places you’ve visited this year, which is your favourite and why?

I’m currently stuck between two… New York and LA. I loved New York since I went there when I was 21. It has an atmosphere I can’t even describe. It just feels like home. So when I went back for a month in March and it was covered in snow… I was overwhelmed by it’s beauty.

And then there’s LA, which is the opposite to NYC haha! It’s hot, sunny, lots of space and chilled out… I think I enjoyed it mainly because it’s where Marilyn grew up and spent the majority of her life. I can see why she loved New York more but it still has a special place in my heart knowing she’s buried there and all…

3. What is the best thing about being married?

The weirdest thing about being married is that it hasn’t changed my relationship with Paul at all. Except I can keep threatening him with divorce haha I’m kidding. But seriously, Paul and I have been together 5 and half years and we’ve always been honest (sometimes too honest) and comfortable with each other. We are ourselves and being married has just made me a part of his family, it didn’t change anything about us. All I know is I’m a Saxby now and although people may see it as just a name, I see it as something more than that. It’s hard to describe.

4. Who is your fashion icon?

Have you seen my fashion sense haha! I’ve always been a bit lazy with clothes… if it fits and it’s comfortable I will wear it. But every now and again I do like to make some effort. If I were to have someone’s wardrobe it would have to be either Lana Del Rey or Taylor Swift as I love both their fashion sense.

5. What is your favourite memory of our friendship?

Possibly when you kissed my arm in your sleep haha! I think each time we see each other is a good memory as we have fun, we have deep conversations, we get emotional and we’re honest with one another. It’s a true friendship and so it’s an ongoing memory that I hope will never fade.

6.  Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?

I’ll be 35 so hopefully I will be in a job that I like which is flexible, creative and pays well. I hope I will have at least one child by that point as having a family is really important to me. I also hope that I would have seen even MORE of the world than I have already.

7. What is your favourite film?

A favourite film to me is one that I can watched 1000 times. So I’m just going to list a few as there is not just one:

Moulin Rouge!, Grease, The Wizard of Oz, Pulp Fiction, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Breakfast at Tiffany’s… There are so many more.

8.  If you could time travel where would you go and who would you meet?

Again this is a tricky one… I would go back to when Marilyn was in New York. She was happy there so I would like to see her then. I’m not sure I would be one of those people who would say they’d go back to save her from dying… I think it was something that had to happen. Morbidly I would like to see how it happened… It’s just one of those things I wish I could know.

I’d also like to see who Jack the Ripper was. See… Morbid.

9. What is your guilty pleasure?

I don’t feel guilty about any of my pleasures but I guess people would say McBusted was mine seeing as it’s the cheesiest pop that’s out at the moment. But McFly combined with my teen loves of Busted – I am happy when I hear it and I don’t feel guilty haha.

10.  Whats your favourite and least favourite quality about me?

Favourite qualities – You’re kind, interested in people, you care

Least favourite – You’re way too harsh on yourself when you are literally the sweetest person this planet. You need to be more selfish every now and again and tell your problems to fuck off more.
