Happy New Year!!!!! Hope you've all had lovely Christmases and a festive holiday...
I've been kindly nominated for the TMI (Too Much Information) tag by Lauren - blogger over at Fashion Panic! And what better time of year to do a "Behind the blog recap" than now! So, for anyone who's interested, or wants to kill 5 minutes, here's 50 fun facts about yours truly:
1: What are you wearing
My Fleecey Christmas PJ's (Not just for Christmas) and it is 9pm on a Sunday night.
2: Ever been in love?
Yes, I'd like to think I'm in love with my fiancé! We got engaged just before Christmas so the term is very new to us and still makes me cringe a bit... (Think we'll stick with boyfriend for now!!)
3: Ever had a terrible breakup?
Not a terrible break up. But I suppose every break up is a bit rubbish at the time!
4: How tall are you?
5ft 3" - I'm teeny!
5: How much do you weigh?
6: Any tattoos?
No. However my boyfriend (see above!) and I do have a Bucket List and we are contemplating putting tattoos on there... if we don't tell our mums. And keep them hidden all our lives.
7: Any piercings?
5 in my ears! Although I'm pretty sad that the one on the top of my ear healed over :-( I might have to get this done again.
What the?? Ok, I just had to google what this is... My One True Pairing would be Blair and Chuck in Gossip Girl. (Have I answered this right!?)
9: Favourite show?
This is too hard. I can't pick one... But Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries are awesome, and Modern Family cracks me up!
10: Favourite bands?
Mumford and Sons. Florence and The Machine (is that a band?) Alabama Shakes.
11: Something you miss?
Christmas as a child! Oooh so magical!
12: Favorite song?
Anything by Tom Odell. (That's not the name of the song, I mean, literally anything sang by him!)
13: How old are you?
30. I just turned 30 before Christmas and I was a bit worried about it as this seems ancient in the Bloggersphere. But actually, now it's happened, I'm loving it!!!
14: Zodiac sign?
Sagittarius - which according to the Urban Dictionary:
Sagittarians are often highly intelligent, adventurous and curious. They are cultural and often have a keen eye for fashion and trends. they are pretty clumsy and can seem blunt and insensitive at times, but really they are just speaking the truth, and are often very thoughtful and philosophical.
15: Quality you look for in a partner?
Humour, Ambition (not sure if that is the right word, just someone who has a bit of "get up and go") and similar morals etc.
16: Favourite Quote?
"Without challenge there is no achievement"
17: Favourite actor?
Tom Hanks. He is seriously awesome and made me cry at the end of Captain Phillips.
18: Favourite colour?
19: Loud music or soft?
Well, I'd like to think that I like a party tune as much as the next gal... However, we put my playlist on at work one day and the girls complained that it was too depressing. Which I think is not very fair to Tom Odell :-/
20: Where do you go when you’re sad?
To the sofa with a bottle of wine!!
21: How long does it take you to shower?
10/15mins? I always used to get shouted at for taking too long in the shower as a teen. But I never used to want to get out because then I'd be cold and wet!
22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
I can wake up and be ready to leave the house in about half an hour. I'm not a morning person so the longer I get to stay in bed, the better :-)
23: Ever been in a physical fight?
24: Turn on?
25: Turn off?People chewing gum! Seriously, I would ban it if I could.
26: The reason I Started A Blog
I started focusing on it properly as I was looking at a lot of blogs at work and thought it looked like fun! I also thought it would be a good way to showcase some of our products in a natural environment.
28: Last thing that made you cry?
Probably something I watched on TV or a film...I always get sucked in!
29: Last time you said you loved someone?
I never go to bed without telling or texting my BF to say I Love You! (Cringe Haha!)
