Random Ramblings Of A City Girl

{Tag! You’re it.} Behind the blogger tag

I haven’t done a tag on the blog in years! I thought that it would be great to do one and also give you a little reminder that there is actually a human behind the screen. It is the perfect way to get to know the blogger that you actually give some of your time to. Yes, you give me a few minutes of your life just by dedicating some time to read my blog and for that I say THANK YOU. This particular type of blogger tag you usually get nominated for but I wasn’t as I discovered it on a blog and then decided to give it a go. The rules are simple;

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Answer all the questions down below
  • Pingback to the creator: Ellyn @ Allonsythornraxx
  • Nominate 5+ bloggers you’d like to know more about, to do this tag

1- WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING & WHY HAVE YOU KEPT BLOGGING?

I started blogging in my gap year(s) after high school while working part-time as a Cape Town correspondent for an online store. I attended launches and wrote some articles for their website. After some time passed I decided to apply to university and then left my job but really missed the creative outlet that writing allowed me to do and that is when I decided to start City Girl Vibe.

What kept me blogging is the “escape” that blogging gives me. Whenever I felt like life was a bit of an uphill battle, blogging was there to take my mind off it – especially writing about things that I am so passionate about. Blogging has been there through all of the milestones over the past few years and I will continue to write in my little corner of the internet. City Girl Vibe Blogger - Copy

2- WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TYPE OF BLOG POST TO WRITE?

For me it is without a doubt my travel and staycation posts. I think it is because I don’t get to do those things very often and then when I do get the opportunity, I savour it.

3-WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 FAVOURITE BLOG POSTS?

I don’t exactly have a favourite post because I put alot of heart, soul and lets not forget, effort in every post but if I had to choose three that really stands out to me then it would be (in no particular order): City Girl Vibe x Exploring the streets on IstanbulThe time I wrote about exploring the streets of Istanbul on foot

My first post for 2020 where I did a recap of all my highlights for 2019

When I wrote about my first love, Cape Town and where to catch the perfect sunset 

4 -WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO TO RELAX?

Given the circumstances around covid19, my habits had to change quite a bit. Under “normal” circumstances my fave things to do to relax was actually to go outside and explore, shopping, hang with my friends and discover new things. Right now, I enjoy reading, listening to music, creating content and doing some diys.

5 -WHAT ARE 3 OF YOUR FAVOURITE THINGS?

6-WHAT ARE YOUR PROUDEST BLOGGING MOMENTS?

I can’t really say because to me blogging is a journey and there are many moments that makes all of this worthwhile and continues to fuel my love for blogging but a few of those moments are when I get featured in different publications or websites.

7-WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF BLOGGING?

I love sewing and creating garments from scratch. I love the whole process from start to finish where I get the design, source the fabric, make the pattern and sew the garment. I also love photography and that is why I love incorporating pictures into my blog and then I also adore touring around the city.

8-DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY IN 3 WORDS

Ambivert, friendly and irritable.

9-WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 PET PEEVES

  • People driving as slow as a snail in the fast lane.
  • When something is out of stock in store or online
  • People talking with food in their mouths>:D

10-WHAT’S SOMETHING YOUR FOLLOWERS DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?

I decided to study rather late in my life. I know 21 doesn’t really qualify as late but after high school I worked for three years before deciding that I needed to “up-skill”  myself and then while studying I worked as well. the process was long and quite challenging but I am so glad that it is over.

UntitledI don’t really like tagging other bloggers because I don’t want them to feel obligated to do the tag but if you’re keen, I tag:

Diva Desle

Natalya Amour

Zoa Wrld

Lifestyle. Adventure. Beauty

Spice Goddess
