Blog Friend Friday: Meet Samantha


I came across Samantha's blog, Post Grad Hair Cut because she left a comment on one of my blogs, I am not sure if it was this blog or my travel blog. Her blog always has cool giveaways and lots of posts on her crafty finds. She totally supports local artists and features them on her blog. If you are into arts and crafts, her blog is a must for your google reader. BTW - I love this photo of her, it's so cute!


1) When and why did you start blogging?
I actually started a couple years ago but didn't keep up with it much.  I started my first blog to talk about what I was making for my business (www.sammade.com).  I started Post Grad Hair Cut in September to chronicle my life after university graduation. In January I really started focusing on it and posting about a lot of things I find online that I love.  It's become a bit of a diary + inspiration journal since.

2) Where do you live?
Vancouver, BC Canada

3) What do you for a living and what do you do in your spare time when you are not blogging?
Well I currently work for a museum that is housed in Vancouver's old city morgue.  I manage all the programs the museum offers.  In my spare time I watch a lot of movies with my boyfriend Brendan, sew, craft, create and spend a lot of time on the internet.

4) Do you also have a Twitter and/or Facebook account?
I do have a twitter account but I haven't really gotten the hang of it quite yet.  I am @sammade.  I also have a personal facebook account and a Post Grad Hair Cut account (which I would love if you would all join).
 
5) What
is your favorite website to visit daily?

The countless blogs on my blogroll.  Each one is so different and wonderful. Some of my favourites currently are:

6) What is your favorite vacation spot and why?
I'm not even sure about this one as I haven't gone to most of the places I would love to go.  I do, however, love going to Portland, OR and try to go at least once a year.  If I could go anywhere right now it would be Paris or Iceland.

7) Name your top three movies.
This is tough.  I am terrible at deciding favourites.  Can I just skip this question?

8) Who is your favourite celebrity to stalk?
Well, I have to admit I do enjoy reading celebrity gossip magazines that are left behind at the gym.  I also have an unhealthy obession with Conan O'brien's twitter.

9) Are you a tea or coffee drinker?
Tea!  I used to love lattes but I've cut out caffeine mostly.

10) Do you love cupcakes (as much as I do)?
Yes.
