Get to know me

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

What is your full name?
Millie Candice Marcroft.

Where were you born?
Rochdale, Greater Manchester. Rochdale certainly has its charms but its honestly not great. I certainly wouldn't want to settle down here. Thankfully, Manchester is only a 15-minute train ride away and I genuinely adore Manchester.

How old are you?

What's your zodiac sign? Do you believe in it?
I'm a Capricorn. I love the idea of zodiac signs; I think they're whimsical and fun but I don't really believe in them. However, the typical traits of a Capricorn match me to a T.

What's the furthest you've ever been from home? 
The Caribbean. In February 2019 I went on a 7-day cruise on the Oasis of the Seas. We ported at Nassau (The Bahamas), Saint Martin (the beach by the airport where the planes are super low), and St Thomas (the beach where Edward and Bella frolicked on their honeymoon).

What inspired you to create a website?
I first started my blog in 2018 when my a-level exams were looming and the stress was driving me insane. In all honesty, I probably started it because it was a way to procrastinate from studying whilst still convincing myself I was being productive. Creating my own website has always been something I wanted to do though. I've never been very good at art -despite my love and appreciation for it- but I have always been fairly savvy with computers. Building my website and being able to apply my love for aesthetics is really satisfying for me. 

Do you have any pets?
Introducing my pride and joy... Sally and Molly. I have two miniature schnauzers and I LOVE them. Molly is 4 but she's an old soul and Sally is nearly 2 but still acts like a puppy.

Do you have siblings?
My skin and blister, Polly. Technically she's my half-sister because her dad is my step-dad but I've never thought about it that way at all. She's an absolute nightmare 90% of the time but we have our moments. I also have two step-sisters at my dad's house. Jasmine is my age and Sasha is two years older so we all got to grow up together.

What do you imagine your blog to look like in a years time?
During the lockdown, I've been so inspired when it comes to blogging. The last couple of years, inspiration has come in short spurts and I've never really been able to be consistent but now that I'm truly happy with the way my website looks I really believe that that will change. I'm starting to gather a much clearer vision of what I want my blog to be so I'm hoping I can build on that and put out a lot more content. I am also more passionate about fashion and the industry than I have ever been- I'm constantly learning and experimenting with style so I'm hoping that by next year my website is actually somewhere that people can go to learn and be inspired.

What sports do you play?
Don't be daft.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
New York City. This has always been my answer. I'm a big city girl; I love to be surrounded by culture and history. Me and my best friend Emily used to have this plan of how we were going to live in New York and she'd be on Broadway and I'd be a boss business women. Whilst this a total pipe dream, I do really want to spend a year living in Paris at some point, which is a big reason why I'm trying to learn french.

What's your favourite tv show?
I am a serious binge watcher - it's actually worrying really- so I've gotten through quite a lot of series'. I'd love to sit here and tell you that my favourite shows are all serious and revolve around crime and drugs but I would be totally lying to you. I'm absolutely obsessed with teen dramas. They are my ultimate guilty pleasure. My favourite is One Tree Hill but honourable mentions must go to Gossip Girl, The O.C., Glee and Gilmore Girls.

What is your biggest regret?
Honestly, I don't have a lot of regrets. Obviously tiny, insignificant ones but nothing major. If I had to say one thing though it would be choosing the a-levels that I did. I studied Biology, Chemistry and Psychology. With the exception of Psych, I didn't enjoy them at all. A combination of my lack of passion and the immense workload made me truly depressed and I  hated going to college.

Do you consider yourself a good cook?
I wouldn't say I am, no, however, I want to be. I'm not inherently bad I just have a lot of learning to do. The things I can cook are amazing though- not to brag. Over the lockdown, I've been learning how to make pasta from scratch which has been absolutely delicious.

What's your favourite book?

If you could transport to any year for a day, where (or I guess when) would you go?
Sometime in the late '60s/early '70s When Simon and Garfunkel, Led Zepellin and Joni Mitchell were all in their prime. Hippie culture was thriving. If I could be super specific I'd go to Woodstock.
