Who are you?
I’m Bee, a 26 year old that slowly is starting to unravel everything in my head and pour it out on to the World Wide Web. I blog mostly about Travel, Fashion & Lifestyle over at QueenBeady.com – you’ll most probably find me taking photos, online shopping or by a beach with a cocktail in hand!
What’s the day job?
I work in Experiential Digital Marketing & Events. We do some really cool stuff that make brand campaigns and activations fun. Before that, I spent 8 years working in management within the Travel Industry which is what I did through an apprenticeship programme when I left sixth form, that’s where I gained my love for travel.
What does your dream day look like?
I’d wake up lazily and enjoy a big plate of eggs beni for breakfast and a mimosa, then heading to the beach with a good book, the sun shining and my husband by my side through the day, then head for a quick nap (naps are everything!) and then head out to dinner where I’d devour a bowl of mussels and a rare steak.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
There’s a few answers for this one, my heart will always be in Amsterdam as I just feel so at home there but I also loved Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast, it’s so beautiful and the weather is to die for! Italy will always have a special place in my heart as it is where my husband & I honeymooned. But for now, I think Yorkshire will be our forver home.
What’s the first thing you check out when visiting someone’s home for the first time?
If it’s clean! And then generally the aesthetic of the place, usually from seeing what people’s homes are like I an vibe what that person will be like. Call it a gift!
What’s your interior addiction?
I adore crisp white walls, and misplaced art on the walls. The room would be filled with succulents and cacti plants dotted around along with bohemian rugs, but I am also a little sucker for the farm house style and shaker kitchens as I married in to a farming family!
What makes you really angry?
I’m going to be terribly British and say, when people don’t know how to queue or when people queue push! There is nothing worse.
Pick a favourite film, book and song.
Film would have to be Blow, I could watch it a million times over. A book is hard for me to choose, but any trashy rom-com that I can get lost in where the protagonist always comes out fighting and ends up with a blissful, perfect life. And song, would have to be a toss up between “Show me love” by Robin S or “R U Mine” by Arctic Monkey’s which are two completely different songs but both “bangers” and get me singing along, so please don’t make me choose!
Best place you’ve ever been on holiday?
For me, our honeymoon to Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast will always have a special place in my heart. However, give me sunshine, a pool/beach and no work to do for a week and generally I am a happy bunny!
What’s your favourite smell?
Any of my husband’s colognes, which is either Versace Blue Jeans, Hugo Boss or Molton Brown Black Pepper.
What single thing would improve your life?
Packing up and heading on a wild travel adventure. My husband and I went in to employment when we both turned 17 so we haven’t done the whole travelling thing. We bought a house and got a dog (who is quite a difficult little cherub to say the least!) so to be able to experience an adventure like that would rid me of all adult responsibilities!
What are you bad at that you wish you did well?
Unfortunately, I’ve never really excelled in anything. I’d love to be able to draw or paint, or sing! Something creative.
What would be your Death Row meal?
Oh my goodness, without a doubt a meal that I had in Madeira, which was the local tradition of steak on a stone. Your steak comes out on a very hot stone and you cook the steak to your requirement, it was perfectly seasoned and it came with a big plate of chips on the side. I’d have to have a desert, Entemanns chocolate fudge cake but they discontinued it in the UK so I always crave it! You always want what you can’t have.
