For those of you who don’t know, 73 Questions is a feature in Vogue magazine that asks some of the biggest celebs 73 quick fire questions in order to get to know them better. Over the last few weeks in particular, it’s become quite popular in the blogging community, where writers answer the questions themselves, and tag 12 fellow bloggers at the end of it. Last week, I was tagged by the lovely Chloe from Writing the Blues Away, and the fabulous Charlotte from Time to Talk and I couldn’t wait to get started!
