WOMEN'S WEDNESDAY | Interview with...Amy

"The empowered woman is powerful
beyond measure and beautiful
beyond description."
- Steve Maraboli

Happy Wednesday beautiful people! Today's post is going to be another interview, and this week it is with the most important and influential woman in my life, my cousin, my best friend, my sister - Amy. She is truly a one of a kind. Enjoy getting to know her.

WHO HAS HAD THE MOST POSITIVE IMPACT ON YOUR LIFE?

Ever since I watched The Secret on Netflix and read The Power - I've started to become my own biggest positive impact. I'm feeling good about everything at the minute and it's all because I'm focusing on keeping my thoughts positive.

WHAT ACHIEVEMENT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?

I'm 23 so at this moment in my life I'm still finding my true self and who I want to be. There's nothing that screams out "I'm so proud of this". I'd say I'm proud to have found true happiness. One day I'll be proud to have a family of my own, a house of my own, etc.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE BEST AND WORST THING ABOUT BEING A FEMALE?

The best thing has to be getting to have nights in with the girls - wine, chocolate and gossip. The worst thing is running up the stairs without a bra on.

WHAT FICTIONAL CHARACTER ARE YOU MOST SIMILAR TO? AND WHY? (Film/tv/book)

I feel like I love this question but it's SO hard. I've been thinking for ages so I'm going to say Tinkerbell. I'm not sure why. I think she's ditzy but cure. That's a little bit of me.

WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?

Right now, I'm passionate about the gym and eating well. Lately, I've been thinking about getting my sewing machine back out. That was always one of my passions. Not even making masterpieces, I'm just passionate about being creative really.

WHAT IS THE BIGGEST LESSON THAT LIFE HAS TAUGHT YOU?

That no matter what it throws at you, happy thoughts equal a happy life.

WHAT TWO THINGS DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOURSELF? (1 personality & 1 appearance)

Personality wise, I like to think I've got an amazing sense of humour but most of the time I'm laughing at my own jokes. So, I'll go with my spontaneity. I'm up for anything as long as it's last minute. Appearance wise, I'd say my skin. It's very rare I break out.

WHAT'S SOMETHING WEIRD THAT YOU RECOMMEND EVERYONE TRYING AT LEAST ONCE?

Frogs legs. I know, even I think ew but I liked them though.

WHEN YOU WERE LITTLE, WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP?

When I was around 10 I used to play Phoenix Wright ace attorney. It was my favourite DS game. I loved it so much that I wanted to be a lawyer.

WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE ANYONE HAS EVER GIVEN YOU?

A physic who told me my Nan wanted me to read "The Secret - The Power". Which is all about the law of attraction and the power of our thoughts.

IF YOU COULD GIVE YOUR YOUNGER SELF ONE PIECE OF ADVICE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

You're going to do great. You're going to find love. You're going to have amazing people in your life.

Not really advice but all my past actions have brought me to where I am now. I'd say save better - suppose that couldn't hurt.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THAT GUYS SHOULD UNDERSTAND ABOUT WOMEN?

MOOD SWINGS. I'm sorry it just happens. I have the perfect day and then I can be cranky because my cup of tea went cold. It's nothing you did, hormones suck.

TELL ME A BIT ABOUT YOUR BEST FRIEND(s).

One of them is my boyfriend - he knows me inside and out. He motivates me and supports me no matter what.

My mum, my sisters and my cousin - these have been my best friends since I could walk. They are everything I could ask for.

IF YOU COULD MAKE A 30 SECOND SPEECH TO THE ENTIRE WORLD, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I've never been good at speech's. I'd basically say stop fighting each other. Life's more important than oil, land and money. Peace and love only. End of.

WHEN DO YOU FEEL MOST LIKE YOURSELF?

When I'm with my mum and my boyfriend.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE QUOTE?

"The Secret to having it all is already believing you do."

WHAT DO YOU THINK IT MEANS TO BE A POWERFUL WOMAN IN 2018?

I've been a powerful woman since 1994, so it makes no difference to me!

WHAT IS YOUR OPINION ON FEMINISM?

I've never looked into what it means to be a feminist fully if I'm honest. Maybe I will after getting asked this.

WHAT IS YOUR OPINION ON BODY SHAMING?

It's ridiculous. Every one is different, get over it.

YOU'RE A SUPERHERO. WHAT WOULD YOUR NAME BE AND WHAT IS YOUR POWER?

I'd love to be able to transport. Is that the word I'm looking for? With the blink of an eye I'd be in another city. Paris or New York. Anywhere in the world I wanted to be. Like "jumper" the film. My name would be Amy - now you see me, now you don't.

 . . .

She really does laugh at her own jokes. But that's what makes her hilarious. And let's take a minute to bow down to her being a powerful woman since 1994!
