. Getting to know me: The Blogger Tag .

Hello hello hello.

So Sarah from Sarah In Wonderland tagged me in this blogger tag, and I’m actually so so so happy about this because I’ve never been tagged in any type of “tag” ever. I really enjoyed writing these up, and I hope you enjoy reading and learning more about me.

Questions 1: How tall are you?

The last time I officially checked was about 3 years ago and I was 5 ft 6, however I’ve had so many people say they’re 5ft 6 and they’re noticeably shorter than me. So maybe I’m 5 ft 7? I’m happy with the height I am, ‘goldilocks height’ I’d say.

Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent?

I can bend all my toes (apart from my big toe) all the way backwards. I can wiggle my head like a cobra, which I’ve figured out that many people find it hard to do, so I guess thats one, maybe? I don’t have any majorly fascinating ones though.

Question 3: Whats your biggest blog related pet peeve?

I don’t know if this would be considered as ‘blog related’ but I can’t stand the Crowdfire automated twitter messages saying “Look at my blog”. I’m more likely to unfollow you if you send me an automated message. Like seriously, don’t people know they’re annoying?

Question 4: Whats your biggest non-related blog pet peeve?

People who walk reeeeeeally slow bother me, as well as when you say “excuse me” at least three times and they don’t move out of the way. I went out on Saturday night for a few drinks, and there was a couple of girls in the toilet.. I must have said “excuse me” about 4 times, so I had to literally barge past them to get through. I hate doing that, but it had to happen!

Question 5: Whats your favourite song?

I don’t really have a favourite song. I like so many songs at the same time, that I find it really hard to choose. At the moment, there is no song I particularly love. Althouuuugh I went out a couple of weeks ago and at 3am my boyfriend wanted to go home and I didn’t. So instead of telling him that I didn’t want to go “just yet”, when RED REDDD WIIIIINE came on, I told him that I loved the song and wanted to stay.. when in fact I actually hate that song.

Question 6: Whats your favourite social media website?

Absolutely Twitter. I’ve made so many ‘online friends’ on there, and you never feel alone. You can literally talk to everyone and anyone… and everyone is so willing to be your friend. There is such a kind atmosphere on twitter.

Question 7: What’s your favourite way to spend your time when you’re alone?

It sounds really weird but I don’t particularly like spending time alone. If I watch TV, I usually prefer having my mum with me to keep me company. As silly as it sounds, I like being on twitter because I feel like I’m not alone on twitter.

Question 8: Whats your favourite junk food?

I don’t know what you’d consider fast food. Because I do love me some Chinese or Indian, but is that really FAST food? If we’re talking real fast food, I do like chicken nuggets and I won’t lie.. I do love me a Big Mac.

Question 9: Do you have a pet or pet(s)? If so, what kind and what are their names?

I have six cats. Most people won’t know most of the breeds, but I’ll say them anyway just in case. Two british short hair cats called Harvey and Reuben, one maine coon named Teddy, and three selkirk rex (but they’re different types of selkirk rexes) called Monty, Bertie and Luna.

Question 10: What are your number one favourite non-fiction and fiction books?

It sounds bad but I don’t read many non-fiction books. In fact, I can’t remember the last non-fiction book I read. Fiction books on the other hand, I’ve read quite a few (although unlike many bloggers I don’t do much reading) and I know this sounds really suckish but I don’t think I have a favourite. I’ve had a few I’ve really enjoyed but nothing I’ve particularly loved anymore than the rest.

Question 11: What’s your favourite beauty product or tool?

I’m going to go for a boring one but a beauty blender (I use the Real Techniques one). Its changed my life in the way I do my make up everyday. I love it. Although there are many beauty products that I don’t think I could live without.

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

Ahhhh its so bad… I don’t remember the last time I was embarrassed which is crazy because I’m pretty sure I’ve embarrassed myself most of my life. This will have to an answer open for change, because right now, I can’t seem to think of ONE.

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life what would it be?

Well I live on sparkling flavoured water, so lets go with a peach sparkling flavoured water (I’m assuming this doesn’t count as water).. as thats practically all I drink anyways!

Question 14: What’s your favourite movie?

It would have to be Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. It brings back so many great childhood memories, and it seems to be the film our family just breaks out into song to. I love it!

Question 15: What was your favourite lesson at school?

Its a hard one because I enjoyed Drama but then I was put into a class where I didn’t particularly like anybody, and then having to do my end of year performance with two girls I can’t stand (because no one else wanted to go with me, *sob sob*). However I’d possibly say I.T. otherwise, because inner nerd.

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Weirdly I have no desire to live anywhere else. I love going on holiday, but England is my home.

Question 17: PC or Mac?

The last two computers I’ve had have been Mac. Every time I need to use a Windows computer at University, I’m so confused with what I am doing. Give me a Mac any day!

Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse? (Or any kind gesture from a friend)

My boyfriend is very sweet and kind, so its hard to pick out one thing. But probably almost once a day he will tell me what he loves about me, and every time he tells me it melts my heart even more. He’s honestly everything I could ever want in a partner.

Question 19: Favourite celebrity?

Again, I struggle with favourites because I’m so indecisive, however I’ll go for Idris Elba. He’s never gone off my radar. He’s an absolute babe. ABSOLUTE BABE.

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?

Twitter has made creating friends with fellow bloggers so easy. I feel very close with a handful of bloggers, and they probably know I love them and wanna be besties! But definitely Alana, KateyFrancesca and of course Sarah. I’m pretty sure they all know I’m obsessed with them.

Question 21: Who is your biggest inspiration?

At the moment, I’d probably have to say my boyfriend (lets not show him this, yeah?). He’s so driven and in a job that he loves. It pushes me to want to do well at University and be in a career that I loooove. He lost eight stone healthily in three years, and because of that, I trust going to him for advice when I’m trying to lose weight. If he can do it, so can I. He’s kind, patient and everything I want to be.

Question 22: What is your favourite blog to read?

There are so many however Vix Meldew‘s blog is one I constantly go back to. She makes me laugh, and she’s so original. She posts things that I’ve never seen before. Her blog is ace.

Question 23: What is your favourite high street shop?

I’d probably have to go with New Look. I may be biased because I worked there, however working there made me realise how reasonable their prices are and how much I actually liked the clothes. I also loved the management I worked for so I guess I’m happy to shop their because (for me), they treat their staff with respect.

Question 24: Are you in education or do you work?

I’m in education at Birmingham City University studying Fashion Business and Promotion. I commute every day, its very tiring but probably the best decision I have ever made.

Question 25: One thing you are proud of?

I’m honestly just proud of how much I have grown this year. I was somebody I hated at the beginning of the year, in friendships that were no good for me and kept on going back to the ‘same person’ purely because being with them was comfortable. I’m now at university studying a subject I love, cut all the bad friendships out of my life, fell in love with blogging again, and most importantly fell in love with a man who couldn’t be anymore perfect for me (#SickBucket). Life couldn’t really be better right now.

All done. Ta-dah!

How the blogger tag works: I will tag five bloggers who will hopefully complete the above 25 questions. They will then nominate five bloggers in return. I am nominating:

      No problem, I was so pleased that you tagged me in it. I’ve never been tagged in any sort of ‘bloggers’ tag before. Glad you enjoyed it, and Idris honestly gives me life. His voice melts through me!

      I love reading them too, it makes you realise how similar or not similar you are to some people! But its so cool to find out little quirks about people.
      I’m honestly in awe of my boyfriend losing the 8 stone, it shows that it can be done if you put your mind to it. IDRIS IS BAE.

      Of course I’d mention you girl! <3

    Welcome to the club of hating auto DMs; I use Crowdfire to unfollow those who unfollow me! People who don’t have manners annoy me too. When I hold a door open and the person doesn’t say thank you, I’ll always shout ‘Thank you. No, thank you.’ I don’t feel lonely on Twitter either; I always know there’s one person out there who’s doing the exact same as me! And I love Chitty Chitty Bang Bang; I’m a huge musicals geek!

      Haha, the auto DM’s seriously do my head in! You just think with the whole manners thing that people should know better than that nowadays, and as bad as it sounds it must be something to do with how they are being brought up.
      Honestly twitter is such a good place for me to be, I think I’d feel so lonely if it weren’t for the twitter community.
      Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is honestly the best film everrrrr!

      You should do this tag! x
