The About Me Tag
A very busy March, both in and out of work, saw me as usual neglect the blog. I seriously could do with some tips on how you all keep up with it alongside a full time job, going to the gym and going out. I have never managed to grasp this concept and literally bow down to those of you who manage to do it all, give yourself a round of applause. I thought I’d come back with an About Me Tag as you’ve probably forgotten all about me and personally I’m really nosey and love posts like this.
Red or White Wine?
Neither! I’m a Prosecco girl all the way, bring me the bubbles
City or Countryside? City. I’m a born and bred London girl and with being a hayfever sufferer I’m not about the country life
Cats or Dogs? I’m not an animal person at all, but I’d have to go for cats just because you can ignore them more
Sweet or Savoury? Sweet all the way
Dresses or Jeans? Dresses. I actually bought a pair on Friday at a sample sale in work but I haven’t actually owned a pair of jeans in years, I’m a leggings lover
Heels or Flats? For a night out? Heels all the way, I don’t do flats on a night out unless it’s like an all night rave until 6am or if I’m partying on holiday. On a day to day basis I’m usually in ballet pumps on heeled boots
Beyonce or Taylor Swift? Taylor Swift, Beyonce can sing but I’m just not a fan
Tea or Coffee? Neither, the only hot drink I have is hot ribena
Divergent or Hunger Games? I love them both but I prefer the books over the films. I don’t think I could pick a favourite between the books but with the films Divergent is the winner for me
Blog posts or YT videos? Blog posts, for now. When I move I am hoping to have a YouTube area which I have all the equipment for but currently struggle for space or solitude from the family to film
Skincare or Make-up? Make-up, although I know skincare should be the one. I am attempting to get better with the skincare though, especially as I’m getting a bit older now
Night or Morning? Night, I don’t understand how people function so early in the morning
Pizza or Burgers? Pizza! No question!
Books or Magazines? Books, on the Kindle 🙂
Facebook or Twitter? And why is Instagram not an option? But fine Twitter it is
Summer or Winter? Summer! I miss the sunshine and warmth, and I hate layering. My wardrobe is so much more summer than winter wear
Digital or Film Photos? Digital, time saver!
What is your favourite….?
Book? I love thrillers and murder mystery books. Some of my favourites are the Leigh Koslow series by Edie Clare and the DI Kim Stone series Angela Marsons.
Movie? I was asked the other day to name my top 5 movies straight off the top of my head and here’s what came to mind; Centre Stage, Bridesmaid, A Little Princess, The Little Mermaid and Pitch Perfect.
TV Show? Right now I’m loving Lip Sync Battles, Australian Masterchef, Geordie Shore and Haven. I have rewatched Full House, Ghost Whisperer and Gossip Girl a number of time.
Perfume? Victorias Secrets Mango Passion Body Mist, Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture and Bedazzled by Vera Wang
Nail Polish? I’m a nail biter so I never wear polish but I love a blue or pink shade when I get false nails done
Skincare item? Bare Minerals Mineraxiler Facial Cleansing Oil, although this is now discontinued. I love Bare Minerals for skincare and Lancome for their eye make up remover, I don’t tend to use any other brands of skincare
Lipstick? Urban Decay Rapture is my all time favourite. I’ve just had some Colour Pop liquid lipsticks delivered so I’ll let you know how I get on
Foundation? Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue and if I want a little extra coverage I go for Urban Decay Naked Skin
Food? I love pasta and chinese (not together) and my Mum makes the BEST fried egg sandwiches
Dessert? Apple Crumble, Jam Roly Poly and Chocolate Fudge Cake would be my top picks, all covered in custard 🙂 Now I’m craving them all!
Place to eat in London? La Tasca, Ed’s Diner, Loch Fyne, China Town, there’s too many to choose from
Alcoholic Drink? Prosecco, Alcoholic Milkshakes and Sourz
Non Alcoholic Drink? Diet Coke
Actor/Actress? Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Hugh Jackman
Singer/Band? Meghan Trainer
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Passing my diploma with a 92% grade. Becoming a manager. The amazing opportunities I have received through my blog. Living away from home. “Do one thing today to make yourself proud”
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be an actress but when I started college the funding was cut on the Performing Arts courses so I hit a bump in the road with that one. I then wanted to be a Holiday Rep and I even got a diploma in it, but it’s such a hard field to get into. I did work a season in Magaluf though as a PR in a bar on the strip. I don’t know what I want to do any more to be honest but I’m happy where I am right now.
What are some things that scare you?
Lifts, heights and losing those important to me. I used to be really claustrophobic but I can happily say this has toned down over the years.
What was your life like growing up in high school?
I went to an all girls Secondary School so that was a treat, every man for themselves as they say. No, I had a lovely bunch of friends but a few were quiet and shy so were the ultimate target for a bully. I found myself in a few scrapes on their behalf throughout the years, I can be quite vicious with words and if I have to throw a punch, well! College however, was great, and not just because I spent most of it drunk.
Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
Definitely an extrovert. I’m energised being around people, although saying that I do mean people I like. If it’s walking down a crowded London street I’d prefer they moved from me and let me get on my way.
So there’s a little about me that you might not have known, I’d love to know more about you guys so if you do post this tag leave me your link so I can be nosey and read your answers.
