Behind the Blog | We Made This Life

Welcome back to another special edition of behind the blog and today we are meeting blogger, vlogger and all round talented mumma, Ali who is the brains behind 'We Made This Life'. Ali's blog is filled with so many wonderful things from interiors to beauty and I would really recommend you guys checking out her YouTube channel too as she makes some wonderful vlogs! Don't forget to go and say hi to Ali on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram after you have had a read.

What inspired you to start blogging?

When I had my first daughter I gave up work and I wanted to concentrate on being the best mother I could. I started reading blogs to get ideas of fun things I could do with her, crafts we could make and healthy recipes to cook. I also looked online to blogs for help with sleeping tips, potty training advice and other parenting things. I grew to love reading blogs and loved the memories that people captured of their families online. When I had my second daughter I wanted to try to make the most of those memories too and was inspired by all the blogs I had read to start my own – to capture my own memories and share my tips with other parents too.

What has been the highlight of your blogging journey so far?

I think a real highlight was being able to take my family on a holiday which we had been asked to review. Being able to give my children great experiences like that means the world to me.

Out of all of your posts, which post would you say means the most to you?

This post where I talk about changing the name of my blog and the reasons why. It is very personal and I had so much positive feedback it was amazing. http://wemadethislife.com/a-new-chapter/

What would you say is your favourite thing about blogging?

Through blogging I have found a way to earn a living working from home which means I can be here for my children and drop them and pick them up from school every day – what a blessing!

If you could work with any brand in the world who would it be and why?

I would love to work with The White Company – I adore their products, they are so crisp and clean and the staff in the stores are always so lovely.

Describe yourself in 5 words?

Small, loving, cuddly, forgetful, stressy.

Shhhhh...tell us a secret about yourself :)

I come across as quite dizzy but I actually have two degrees so I’m a bit of a closet geek!

If you were being sent to a desert island, what three things would you take with you?

My family, my ipad and suncream J

And finally, when your not blogging, what do you do in your 'spare' time (if there is ever such a thing)? I love reading magazines, running, doing yoga and reading books and going to the cinema. Although there is never enough spare time!!
