Blogger Chat: Steph from Hello Steph!

Happy FriYay everyone and welcome to another installment of our 'Blogger Chat.' We absolutely love when you meet someone and you instantly connect with them, you share similar passions, have so much fun chatting about everything and anything and just having them in your life makes you smile. Well, we met Steph through the wonderful world of blogging I want to say, only a few months ago, and she is awesome. We have many a thing in common, as you will see from her delightful interview, and her blog 'Hello Steph' is our favourite. We couldn't wait to have a little chat with her and see where it all began. So without further ado, here's Steph! Enjoy! :)  
1) What made you decide to create your blog?
I think my obsession with YouTube and seeing other people create cool content inspired me. There were so many things that I wanted to share with people and a blog seemed perfect. After being stuck in a 9-5 job I really needed a creative outlet. I wanted to do it for quite a while, then decided to go for it! Best thing I have ever done.

2) Your blog covers a range of topics from food, fitness, health, self love, books and all things nerdy, which we love. Do you have a specific topic that you love to write about the most?
The nerdy stuff comes so naturally! But I think my favourite topic is health and fitness because I’m so passionate about it. It’s changed my life and I love sharing that with people, and if I help inspire someone then that makes me so happy. I could talk about it for hours! Even my trainer says how addicted I am.

3) We love to write in our cozy office spaces. Do you have a particular place where you blog or do you move around?
I have a little blogging desk set up as my work area that has my whiteboard full of goals and post ideas to keep me inspired. Usually on the weekends I might do some blog work from my cosy bed, but I like having one area designated for work. Best to stay disciplined!

4) We know you wake up early to run or go to the gym but what time of day do you enjoy writing at the most? On a side note are you a night owl?
Haha that's me! Always at the gym. I’m in the best mood for writing after I’ve had my lunch, so any time between noon and afternoons are my favourite time to be creative. I find being active helps my brain function a lot better. My brain does not function well in the morning.

5) You always have the most delicious meals, snacks and shakes in your daily posts. Do you have to have a certain drink or snack when blogging. If so what do you have?
COFFEE! I always have a cup of coffee next to me when I blog (literally have one right now!) Sometimes I like to have a fruit and nut mix next to me as well to nibble on. I usually take a break from blogging to eat and watch some YouTube, then get straight back into it!

6) Over the last few months we have found that we have a lot of things in common. One being our love for the TV show Chuck. So we have to ask, who is your favourite character from the show?
 We really do have so much in common and I love it! The characters on that show are amazing, which makes this question quite hard. I think I’m going to have to say Chuck, because he’s just so sweet and the perfect guy! Morgan is a close second for being so funny and adorable. I’ve also really come to admire Ellie for being so strong and amazing. But Chuck is my favourite 😊

7) You have us drooling with your amazing food pictures. If we came to New Zealand on a trip and wanted to visit the best foodie hotspot. Where would you take us?
Thank you! Oh, of course I would have to take you my favourite café that's attached to my gym, Pure Café Co. They make the most amazing food that’s clean and healthy, yet taste better than anything junk food. Plus, no one makes coffee like my barista can! (he was number one in NZ last year!) Christchurch also has an incredible Mexican restaurant if you girls are up for tacos and margaritas?

8) A big part of blogging is being active on social media. We follow you on everything and love the content you share. What is your favourite app?
Twitter has been my favourite for interacting with lovely bloggers like you girls! 
It's really helped me learn about this community we have and how I want to be seen within it. I’m also obsessed with Snapchat! I spend ages watching what people are getting up to.

9) If you had to pick one thing about your blog that you love the most. What would it be?
I just love how much it has evolved over the course of a year. I started out as a little lifestyle blogger, trying to find what I wanted to write about. Now I just let me inner gym-junkie and nerd run free! It took me quite a while to find my blogging feet, but now I’m really comfortable with it. Can’t wait to see what it’s going to look like next year.

10) Finally, what would you say is the best thing about being a blogger?
My favourite thing is probably sharing my passions with people. It’s the best feeling when someone comments saying that they can relate or that I’ve helped them by talking about it. Also making blog friends with you girls has made this journey extra special! It’s so cool having people who understand and share what I love. You’ve helped me so much on my down days! Blog friends are the best xx

Thank you so much Steph for being a part of our blog today! Please be sure to visit her gorgeous blog and follow her on social media too!

Have a lovely Friday.
Love Lucy and Kelly xx
