Who Am I – #Blogtober16

I’m joining in with the lovely Mandi at Hex Mum Blog and a whole host of other wonderful bloggers for #Blogtober16 which is daily themed blog post. So this is a a great post to kick it off with really as some of you will be new to Candyfloss & Dreams and probably won’t know all that bit about me and my little space here.

So hello and welcome to my blog if you’re a newcomer, if you’ve been around before then welcome back. I am Kayleigh or Kat, I answer to both when I’m focusing and paying attention. I’m a busy blogger, mum and girlfriend based in a medium sized town in Hampshire. I like to blog about my travel adventures, a whole bunch of different reviews and raise awareness for domestic violence.

about me, about the blogger, blogtober

I always tend to divert the attention away from myself and onto my loved ones without really giving much away so I’m going to try here. I’m currently twenty-seven and I’m excited for my birthday in December. December is my favourite time of year because I have guaranteed time away from school runs, time with family, time off work and time to myself. It’s a time to celebrate. I actually love this time of year, getting back into the routine of things, the colours of Autumn and pretty good stuff on the telebox in the evenings.

I love blogging, it’s a job I do where I truly feel myself. I gave up my full time job over eighteen months ago now to try and make a living working from home and I have done so much in these past few months. Learning I could make a bit of money through my blog was a bit of a game changer and I am so glad I get to do this full time now. So grateful. I am also an aspiring author and have ideas for a novel penned in many notebooks and word documents.

I am firmly in camp iPhone and want to upgrade to the 6S in December. I want a Canon G7X camera so I can start vlogging without holding the camera inches from my face. I love technology, I think it’s an incredible thing and I love that I’ve witnessed such a transformation that is the digital age. My biggest tech love is video gaming. I am a huge fan of the Final Fantasy series and eagerly anticipating the arrival of Final Fantasy XV next month after a very long time waiting for it. I also love my Kindle, knowing I can constantly carry a library around is fantastic!

I am mum to one little gremlin known to most as Mini Kat because of how much I am told she looks just like me, although she prefers to call herself Evie. We live with our very own Adam, and have been a little family for over three years now. Some people would call us a blended family. Adam took on a daunting job as step dad at just twenty one years old to a toddler full of tantrums and he took it completely in his stride.

So that is me, and a little insight to my family of which I’m sure you’ll get to know more over the coming days. For now, a very happy October to you all!

    HI and welcome to #Blogtober16, its going to be great to get to know you all. My eldest teen loves Final Fantasy and that is all he talks to me about! Its lovely to hear that bloggers are actually making a living from their blog, I made the decision to stop my job and work from home, like you its working out OK, I look forward to hearing when you publish your first novel (its there in black and white now, so we will all be waiting in anticipation) If Adam can cope with toddler tantrums, he will breeze through the teenage years!
