99 Questions

Hey there!

I’ve been watching these Vogue 73 Questions videos recently on YouTube and I am slightly obsessed. They’re so quirky and random but kind of fun. It’s like those videos that you don’t expect to like at first but you watch one, then another, and another and before you know it you’ve watched twenty before lunch.

Some of my favorites? Amy Adams’, Blake Lively’s, Reese Witherspoon’s.

I’ve decided to adapt the concept for myself. It was actually a real challenge to come up with 99 random questions that were cohesive and gave a small insight into who I am. By the end of it I was surprised to learn that I felt inspired to take on some new challenges and switch some things up in my own personal life. Who would have thought this little challenge could do that!? Certainly not me. I would suggest you do this too, even if you don’t tell anyone the answers. You never know what inspiration you could find for yourself by question 99!
