Two Ticks With...Scared Toast

When one of your favourite bloggers decides to perch their loveliness on your sidebar, there’s a need to be excited. I literally couldn’t wait to share this post with you, because Tabitha is bloody awesome and I’m absolutely certain you’re going to love her blog Scared Toast just as much as I do. Her writing style is so honest and addictive, plus she has a really gorgeous doggy, Dudley. Enough of my thoughts, let’s hear Tabitha’s!
What inspired you to first start your blog? And can you tell us a little bit behind the name?
I remember researching something MAC-related and coming across the world of blogging.  I spent a good few weeks religiously checking the blogs I'd found; it was like a secret I'd stumbled on and I couldn't get enough.  I umm-ed and ahh-ed, and eventually Ed, my boyfriend, encouraged me to give it a go myself.  I think we'd been watching back to back Nip/Tuck at the time, so my original blog name was 'A Perfect Lie', but I began to feel like that was restricting me with regards to focusing solely on beauty so when I got round to buying a url I decided to go for something a little more abstract so that I could blog about whatever took my fancy.  I touch on it in my "About Me" section on my blog, but basically "Scared Toast" is the name my family give to undercooked toast!

For those who may not have had the pleasure to read your bloggy yet – could you sum it up in just 3 words?
Only three?!  Light-hearted, candid, me.
You cover a wide variety of subjects on your blog – what’s your favourite thing to write about?
My favourite thing to write about is probably lifestyle and the things I do.  I love trawling back and looking at old outfits, but it's the chit chat that goes with those posts that transports me back and reminds me where I was in my life and how I was feeling.  And I hope people like to read it too!

Audrey or Marilyn?
Audrey.  Although I love a bit of OTT glamour, it's Audrey's chic style that wins for me.

I ruddy love your style – so relatable to the public eye but effortlessly chic! What’s your secret?
Ooh I'm not sure I have a style, let alone any secrets!  I'm really inspired by other bloggers to just go out there and experiment.  I don't like to stick to one genre of clothing and I like to think I'm not a label snob.  So I guess my secret is to follow as many fashionable people as you can find, stalk their style and shop around!  Don't be afraid to try new things because you might just surprise yourself. 
A quote to live by?
There are so many quotes that I love!  I think the one that I relate to most is from Alice in Wonderland and it's "but it's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then."  I'm such a worry-wart and this reminds me that there's nothing I can do about moments from the past, and that without them I wouldn't be who I am today.

I mentioned in my Monthly Advertisers post that I loved your Making Memories series – how are you finding it so far and can you tell everyone the story behind it?
So the Making Memories idea came from reading another blogger's bucket list at the beginning of the year.  I always want to make bucket lists but just find them so unachievable.  I dragged my younger sister into it with me, and then decided it would be a great way to make some memories together, just doing simple things each month.  Some of my favourite memories with family and friends have come from off the cuff moments and that's what we've tried to capture here.  We've each secretly chosen 6 activities that have to be completed within the month.  It's a great way to make sure we set aside some time for each other and do some sisterly bonding.  We've had a bike ride in London so far, and this month it's an ice skating trip!
If you could only keep one item from your home, what would it be and why?
I'm assuming that since you said item, Ed and the pets are safe?!  It'd probably be my laptop because all my photos, music etc (basically my life!) are on there.  That's a really hard question to answer without seeming shallow!

I hope you enjoyed getting to know Tabitha a little better :) I can't wait to see what's up next on her Making Memories series, and if you want to keep updated on all things Scared Toast you can find her in all these lovely places:
