3. What other hobbies do you have besides blogging? Watching movies, reading, spending time with my family, going out with my boyfriend and or friends.
4. What is the concept of your blog? It's mainly reviews of products I've used or bits on shopping. I have an obsession with hard to find products so it's mainly stuff like that.
