BFFL #1

Hello all you lovely people. Today is the first instalment in my BFFL (blogging friends for life) series, if you haven’t heard of it yet or want to get involved then you should definitely head over to my Twitter or email me at emjane.design@hotmail.com.

The point of this series is to get to know the people behind the blogs. To do this I have sent out some surveys to those interested and I will post 8 peoples answers on a post every Sunday. Have a look down their answers and if you see someone who lives near you or shares an interest with you then drop them a message on their social media links and lets get that friendship started! If you have sent in a survey and it isn’t here yet don’t be disheartened it is coming soon! So enough of me blabbering lets introduce todays 8 BFFLs (I feel like I’m hosting a game show!)
