The Questions
1. When and why did you start blogging? I started blogging in 2010 with my first blog The Neovictorian Parlour. I started blogging because I was inspired by other people's blogs! I thought it looked like a fun way to express one's self and be part of a community.

2. With MP3s and internet streaming, do you still buy CDs or DVDs? Sadly I don't anymore. I download music and movies and use apps like Spotify to listen to new music.

3. How would you describe your style of dress? Casual-perky-spooky-rocker-punk-Victorian-goth.

4. What religion or philosophy do you ascribe to?
I'm Wiccan, but I also incorporate many new age philosophies as well.

5.What are your favorite TV shows on the air right now?
As stated above I enjoy Ghost Adventures and Dead Files. I also love Game of Thrones. I watched the first two seasons of Downton Abbey and would like to see more. I would also like to see Vikings and Penny Dreadful when I have time.

6. What other hobbies do you participate in, besides blogging?
I paint, write, play guitar when I can and do vlogs too.

7. If you participate in the arts, which ones do you participate in? Are you a hobbyist or a professional? I consider myself a professional artist as I do sell art and show in galleries, but writing and guitar are more hobbies.

8. If a movie was being made about your life, which actor/actress would play you? I've been told I look like Mena Suvari so I guess I will say her.

9. Choose one: Coffee or tea? They are both great, but I will go with coffee, especially fancy ones like Pumpkin Spice lattes.

10. What colors have you dyed your hair? I was a natural blonde but my darkened when I was in my early 20's so I have been "helping" it in the right direction ever since. I've mostly been blonde, but I have also had red and purple hair. I also have had my hair blonde and purple and blonde and red.

11. Introvert, extrovert, or ambivert? I'm an introvert who's learnt how to act extroverted when I need to.
