What I… Leanne from ArumLilea

Today I’m sharing with you a beautiful little piece of the internet I discovered recently… It’s called ArumLilea and is written by Leanne, a fashion devotee who shares lovely photos of her even lovelier outfits. Besides fashion and beauty she also has a love for Travel and Food – both of which also feature on her blog. Find out more about her here…


What I….
You can never be overdressed or overeducated. Education is such a fundamental part of life and it does not mean that you need to have a string of degrees from top universities around the globe. It means that you use your own initiative to educate yourself. Reading a book, reading the newspaper, looking for articles online are all ways of ensuring that you are able to educate yourself. Whether your interest be sewing, Photoshop or business, there is so much material out there to help you out and I absolutely love that fact. I just love to learn, ask questions and understand. It’s a natural curiosity that cannot be quenched.

Love: My family and friends of course. I’d be lost without them. My dad, gran and sister all play a huge role in my life. My group of friends also serve as my safety net. We’re such a tight-knit group and have been since we were about 7. I love to travel and experience new languages and cultures. I’d have to say my favourite city is Prague. To me it’s a life-size doll house town. I love all things French – the language, the food, the chateaux and gateaux and macaroons of course. I love to eat healthy and keep fit. The fitter I am, the better I feel. I love fresh flowers. I have an orchid in my room and I add flowers around the house as often as I can. I love to cook and bake throughout the week. Lastly, I love my little kitten, Hermione. She’s just a darling.

Read: I am a complete history nerd. I will read anything that’s got a chuck of history in it, especially if I don’t know much about that period in time. I also cannot go a day without reading my favourite blogs.

Want: A Celine bag (keep dreaming, Leanne). I want to travel the world, slowly year by year with little trips here and there. I’d also like to travel South Africa and leave no stone unturned. I love our beautiful country.

Wear: pink nail polish, a rose-gold Michael Kors watch, chunky bracelets, a ring that I bought in Florence and small studs every day, without fail.

Need: A cup of tea (always).

Thanks Leanne for taking part in my blogger interview series.

I love discovering new blogs and I’m always on the lookout for potential “What I…” bloggers, so if you write one or follow one that you think I should know about please do email me your suggestions….

Kathryn Rossiter

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
