Q&A With Izzy K!

If you haven't checked out Izzy K yet you need too! Izzy is full of fun, beauty and life and she is just so relatable and knows how to brighten your day. She really inspired me after seeing her become more and more confident in her videos to get over my fear of talking to a camera and to go for it! Feel inspired with my Q&A with Izzy below!

1. What inspired you to start doing Youtube?
Lot's of things actually inspired me. I've always enjoyed watching youtube but I was way to scared to try making my own videos for about 3 years. Then, I started watching all the big Youtuber's first videos. You can see that they didn't start off perfect but they've grown to be really successful. I just thought that if they can do it and have fun along the way, then there's no reason I can't give it a go.
2. Who are your biggest inspirations and why?
At the moment I would probably have to say Cara Delevingne. She's not afraid to be her self especially in an industry that says you can't be. She's battled her own personal problems and is incredibly talented at every thing she does. I think she shows people, especially young girls, that its ok to be different if you're just being yourself. Other than Cara I would have to say my biggest inspirations are bloggers and YouTubers. I read so many inspiring posts about troubles that people have experienced and how they dealt with them. Most importantly these people offer support to others in the same situation and reassure them that it will get better. I think it's extremely important that they do that.
3. What would you like to achieve with your Youtube Channel in the next few years?
I want to post as many videos as I can. I have a personal goal to make each video I post better than the last because there are always improvements to be made. My absolute dream with Youtube is to reach 1000 subscribers but I think that would take more than a few years to happen!
4. Do you have any weird hidden talents?
I'm a pretty untalented person in most aspects of my life and if anything I'm anti-talented. However, something I've always been able to do is cry on demand. It's not exactly useful but it is fun to do and I can always trick people with it.
5. What helps you when you're feeling down?
When I'm feeling down, the first place I look is Youtube or for some blogs to read. If I'm watching a video, I watch Dan & Phil because they're hilarious and I can always relate to them. When I read blogs, I look for someone inspiring, usually you Rainbow to be honest!
6. If you were to plan a crazy magical adventure, where, who and what would you do?
I'm in the middle of planning an adventure for my gap year but its not exactly going to plan because I'll have to work throughout it to be able to pay for everything, which isn't that exciting. But my dream adventure would be going to Disney World with a group of friends. And then stay there forever!
7. What is your biggest, most wildest dream imaginable?
Since I don't think of much outside the world of blogging or youtube because they are my life, I would have to say reaching either one million subscribers or followers. I know that's unrealistic, but a girl can dream. It would just be cool to imagine that many people seeing something that I put a lot of effort into.

Love Will Happen When It's Meant To Happen!

So many of us fall into the trap of NEEDING someone... by needing someone you're putting the keys to your happiness into someone else's hands and they will only break it into a million pieces over and over again. Those are your keys and your responsibility and you should WANT to share your life with someone not need and that sharing of your life and kind of love will happen when it's meant to happen!

Being single is better than being in a relationship with someone who doesn't respect, genuinely care or isn't right for you, you have to determine your worth because it isn't someone else's job to validate or to make you happy while that may play it's part in a relationship it shouldn't be the definition or soul purpose of one.

Know your worth, love yourself and know that love will happen when it's meant to happen.

With love

10 Tips To Deal With A Rough Time!

  1. Support people: Call upon your support people, sometimes you just need to talk it out and have someone listen to your pain and have them reassure you that everything's going to be okay and to give you a hug. These people are truly angels.
  2. Random acts of kindness: Whether it's sending a text to family or a friend with a happy message, giving a gift, leaving a $5 note in a library book or simply thanking someone for being who they are, random acts of kindness can brighten not only someone else's day but yours too.
  3. Music: Need cheering up? Need something to relate too? Feel angry? There is always a song for anything you're feeling, sometimes music is the only thing that understands just what you're going through.
  4. Exercise: Get angry, pissed off, frustrated and put that into a workout...lifting, running, boxing etc. Plus the endorphins that come from working out will uplift your mood and be a positive release!
  5. Cry: Sometimes you just need a cry... a massive dramatic breakdown cry, let it all out baby!. Bottling it up will only make it worse in the long term.
  6. Fluffy animals: Nothing like the love, energy and heart of a fluffy creature to cuddle up too.
  7. Write it out: Get a pen and paper and write it all down, rip it up and throw it away.
  8. Counselling: Asking for help is a sign of strength and you don't always have all the answers, help and support you need. Even if it's for a few sessions check in with a counsellor and open up. You have to do the internal work but the knowledge and help you get may just be exactly what you need. 
  9. Take a moment: STOP... in the middle of a storm there can seem no way out and everything is wrong, bad and dark, take a moment to really look at the situation, what's happening, who you are and who do you want to be?. See it like a friend is going through what you are... what praises, reminders and advice would you give them?.  
  10. Gratitude list: When life's storms are raging on or the seas are rough sometimes we can forget what blessings we do have and that others would only dream of having. Get a piece of paper and pen and write a list of all the things you're grateful for to remind yourself what you do have going for you.
