Q&A session on Instagram

Updated: Nov 12, 2020

Hey guys!

As mentioned here earlier today, I made a Q&A session on my Instagram few nights ago. Below you can read most of the questions I managed to reply during the session.

I had great fun receiving and replying all your questions, of which there were many really good and funny ones. Many of the questions were quite similar, so if I didn’t reply to your question specifically, you may have gotten your answer anyway. 😉 Or you will get it next time because I will definitely make more Q&A sessions in the future!

You’ll find me on Instagram under @michelleli, and I would also like to encourage you to follow @michelleliofficialwebsite as well. That’s a new Instagram profile I’ve made with my website partner in crime. We will use this profile to post news from my website and sometimes reposts from my personal profile too, so if you don’t wanna miss a thing, go and follow that new profile! 😉
