I thought I’d start off with a more personal post so that anyone coming across my blog can learn a little about me if they wish. I came across this post on my friend Abbie’s blog (www.abbwhi.com) – it’s actually a tag but I thought I’d be a rebel and give it go anyway. Anyone else who wants to do it, please feel free!
1. What do you order at Starbucks?
If I’m in the mood for a hot drink, I almost always get a caramel latte. If I’d rather have a cold drink but still need some coffee in my life, I’ll get an iced caramel macchiato.
2. What is one thing in your wardrobe you can’t live without?
There’s a couple of things, one is my big grey jumper dress because it’s always a go to if I’m not sure what to wear and it’s super warm and cosy, not so great for summer though haha. I also love my high waisted black jeans from Topshop because they’re really stretchy so they’re super comfy and they go with just about anything. I’m also currently loving my denim pinafore because you can wear it with different tops depending on what look you’re going for and it sucks me in so it makes me feel good even if I’m feeling frumpy that day.
3. What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
I’d actually probably say that I’ve got a blog. I’ve only started it recently and I haven’t really spoken about it to anyone other than my boyfriend. I’ve shared it on Twitter so a few people will have seen it but other than that I don’t mention it to people.
4. What’s one thing you want to do before you die?
I really want to go to Italy. To be a bit more far-fetched, I’d also love to perform in Les Miserables.
5. What’s one food you can’t live without?
Burgers, I’ve got some sort of addiction to them which probably isn’t the healthiest thing.
6. What’s one quote you live your life by?
“Never grow up.” I think it’s important to be silly, laugh and enjoy things. Obviously know when to be serious but don’t spend your whole life being uptight and miserable, it just puts you and everyone around you down.
7. What do you like/dislike about the YouTube/Blogging community?
I really like that you can express who you are and talk about things with people that share your interests. I find it quite therapeutic to have somewhere that I can channel my creativity and hobbies into as well as reading about what other people enjoy. The thing that I don’t like which I’ve mainly seen in the YouTube community is that people put up comparisons to each other which isn’t healthy. People get into dramas for various reasons and advertise their drama for everyone to see and react to so that the attention is drawn to them. I say just enjoy it, don’t make it a negative thing.
8. What’s the number one song on your iPod/iTunes?
Where You Are – Moana.
9. What kind of style would you describe yourself as having?
I don’t really know if I have a particular style. For work I usually wear a formal-ish dress or top and skirt with tights and flat black shoes. On the weekend, sometimes I’ll chill in a big jumper and leggings, sometimes I’ll wear jeans and a t-shirt and sometimes I’ll go for dresses depending on what mood I’m in. Generally though, I think it’s just whatever is comfy and chilled out haha.
10. Favourite number?
11. Two hobbies?
Watching musicals/singing along to songs from musicals and eating. It’s really bad that eating is a hobby.
12. Two pet peeves?
People with no manners and hearing people eat noisily.
13. Your guilty pleasure?
I’m not actually sure if I have guilty pleasures just because I shamelessly like whatever I like – I love dancing and singing to cheesy pop music from decades ago and watching weird documentaries about serial killers and I’m not even ashamed to say it, it’s just who I am.
