Inspiration From: Carrie Hope Fletcher
We love Carrie Hope Fletcher. We love her easy-to-watch personality, her incredible singing voice and her big, lively hair - it's safe to say we're obsessed. When we heard the announcement that she was writing a book based on her blog, we couldn't have pressed 'pre-order' any quicker. Blogger, west-end actress and book lover - what's not to love?! To celebrate the upcoming release of All I Know Now, We've collected our favourite gems from Carrie Hope Fletcher right here for you so you can fall in love with her too.
When asked what she does to unwind in an interview with What's on Stage, Carrie's reply was one we can definitely relate to: "I adore reading. I'm the proud owner of over 400 books and I'm often found with my nose in one." Surprisingly, since we know her love of Disney movies, the answer to her favourite film was "Scott Pilgrim vs The World." Perhaps our favourite question of the interview was where Carrie saw herself in ten years time: "In my own little house with a cat and possibly a husband if some crazy man thinks he can take me on. I'd love to have a couple more musicals under my belt and I've been wanting to write a book for a long time now. I even have about 40,000 words of one written down but I have so many ideas buzzing around my brain that I really need to get one of them out and finished."
Carrie's Youtube channel ItsWayPastMyBedtime is littered with song covers, hilarious conversations whilst holding a cup of tea and more serious advice videos. Some of our favourite Carrie quotes are:
- "To my sixteen-year-old self... Don't compare yourself to every girl you've met... Stop comparing and start self-caring."
- "Take the time to date yourself and don't let guys state your worth because half the guys you end up being with just didn't deserve everything you had to offer."
- "Favourite quote - don't die wondering."
We just love Carrie's humour and can't wait to see more of her in the future.
