Ever since starting Rock and Roses Mama I have been really keep to fully submerse myself into the blogging world and I am especially interested in attending events and convention to meet fellow bloggers in person, connect with brands and learn amazing skills. After popping myself on a waiting list for tickets for BlogOn MSI I was psyched when an email popped up one day saying that I had got a ticket! In one weeks time I will be attending BlogOn MSI in Manchester and I could not be more excited!
It looks like SUCH a great first convention to attend and I am certain I am going to have an amazing time! I already am familiar with a few attendees which is really helpful but for those of you that don’t know little ol’ me yet… here are my Icebreaker Questions.
Share a recent photo of you.
Describe yourself in three words?
Tall, Creative and Organised.
How long have you been blogging and what made you start?
I have been blogging since August after thinking about wanting to shake up the Motherhood community a little after a bad experience on maternity leave; it was clear that many new Moms had resigned themselves to just being ‘Mom’ and saw their own lives as over, devoted entirely to their little ones. I wanted to spread the word that you can still ‘Mama it up without losing YOU’!
What was the inspiration behind your blog name?
I thought about a perfect name for a while and mulled a few over before I came to ‘Rock and Roses Mama’. I wanted a name that encompassed both amazing maternal rosiness and the independent and empowered rockin’ sides of every Mother.
What is the best thing to come from your blog so far?
The blogging community is amazing and so supportive! I have made so many new friends! The potential of making it into a career is also a massive driving force.
Your most remembered thing from your childhood
I have terrible memory of my childhood oddly… I remember more stories if I look at old photographs! My fondest memories are going with my Dad on his Kitesurfing and Windsurfing adventures; sitting on the beach and watching him in the water… I always wanted to learn but never did!

I have a Degree in Fashion and Textiles and Grade 7 in Clarinet.
