↣ Are you a full time Youtuber?
I work full time online as a ‘Digital Nomad' which means I get to travel the world with my husband and not be tied to living in any specific country. I teach courses on Udemy (check out my profile here – https://www.udemy.com/u/louisecroft/), and run several companies, plus of course blogging and Youtube.
↣ When did you start blogging?
I created my blog in 2012 when I was living in America. I was thrifting so much that I wanted to start sharing my outfits online and inspiring other people to look in charity shops. Now it's become all about my Digital Nomad journey and what it's like to be a female nomad.

↣ Where's your accent from?
I'm from the South of England but I currently live out of a suitcase traveling all over the world.
↣ Where is your favourite place in the world?
I fell deeply in love with Gili Air when we visited as a paradise getaway, but Chiang Mai is my favourite place to live. Plus of course, there's no place like home (Dorset in England).
