Two Ticks With....Sophie in the Sticks

It's that time again. The wonderful time where you get more familiar with a new blog. The excitement of getting to know some of my favourite bloggers better never wears off and today it's Sophie's time!
From fashion to fitness and cooking to the country there's something for everyone on Sophie in the Sticks! Find out why she's one of my faves below....

Hey Sophie! For anyone who hasn’t had the pleasure of stopping by your blog before, can you give us a brief rundown of what they can expect?
Hello everyone! I cover everything that I am passionate about on Sophie in the Sticks which does happen to include quite a bit, all based in my little piece of heaven the Norfolk countryside. In the last couple of years I've grown really fond of capturing the places we go in pictures and sharing it on my blog, along with my frequent fashion posts, plenty of recipes and restaurant reviews and documenting my health & fitness journey. It's all from the heart.

You’ve recently started documenting how fitness fits in with your lifestyle. What’s your favourite aspect of that to write about? Do you find it has a different response to your other posts?
I love to share updates on how I'm trying to improve my fitness as I am so enthusiastic about keeping active and toning up. The key to staying active is to find something you really love to do, for me it's bootcamp and running. When I read about other people's journeys I find it really inspiring and I'm kinda hoping that my drive to reach new goals will rub off on others who can find their own reasons to jump on the healthy bandwagon – the more the merrier. There is so much support out there, I love to hear what everyone else is up to and if I have helped motivate them.

You’re quite the wonder woman with all the topics you cover here at Sophie in the Sticks. So let’s talk a bit about fashion. What’s your favourite type of outfit to put together?
An outfit to take a walk in, maybe on country lanes, grassy footpaths, along the riverbank or forest trails. The possibilities are endless, you cannot fail in ankle boots and something fun and lighthearted. Overdress, who cares? It's fun. My personal style is quite rural, easygoing and bright, I dress to make myself happy!  

And if you had to start your entire wardrobe from scratch and just keep ONE item, what would pick and why?
Firstly, this is something of a nightmare. How can you put this thought through my mind, Megs?! I have FAR too many clothes and really struggle to part with any of them. The vintage-y charity shop finds would have to be my most valued and the classic Jaeger tweed jacket was the first thing that came to mind so I'll pick that. It was my favourite ever buy at £7 and will forever look as charming as well as suiting my countryside style right down to the ground.

You aspire to cook from scratch regularly…for a newbie to food blogging, what would your top tips be? And what’s your favourite dish to cook?
If in doubt take a picture, the number of times I haven't taken one before it's too late and regretted it! Photography is the hardest part of food blogging and I'm still working on how to get the best from my pictures. I'm a creature of habit and there is nothing more indulgent than homemade lasagne, it's got to be the best comfort food, for sure.

Marilyn or Audrey?

And finally a quote to live by?
I don't have a quote but I do have a couple of tips
  1. Always check the forecast before getting dressed, you'll do yourself a massive favour.
  2. Be kind to people, it's rewarding because you get a warm fuzzy feeling inside and they are much more likely to be kind in return <3

Sophie is one of my all time favourite bloggers. We been following each others blogs for as long as I can remember and we've met on a few occasions. She is as lovely in real life as she seems on her blog. You can always be sure that what she says is what she thinks - I love that about her.
Her fitness posts have inspired me (although I don't have her determination) and I love, love her photography and outfit posts.
Definitely worth a follow I reckon :)
