The Blogger Tag

Hello! And thank you for taking the opportunity to find out about The Blogger Tag.  To start things off, I have answered the below questions and have then tagged some fellow bloggers to join in and answer the same questions on their blog. 

The aim of the game, to get to know each other as bloggers a bit better. A how better than with some right nosy (but not that nosy!) questions! Thanks to who tagged me.

Here are my answers..

Question 1: How tall are you?

I am between 5 ft 3 and 5ft 4…..but officially stopped growing

 Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?

Apart from playing the recorder with my nose, not tried in years I can write a poem about anything quite quickly. Always loved writing since I could write I guess.

 Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

When you get an automated message that has been sent to goodness knows how many others and not personally written just for you.

 Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?

Ooo when people make chamming noises when they are eating I just give them the look.

 Question 5: What’s your favourite song?

When the song was number 1 for 16 weeks I must have been about 6/7 and I heard the song continuously Bryan Adams: Everything I do I do it for you. Now I am older I appreciate the lyrics


 Question 6: What’s your favourite social media website?

If you asked me a year ago I would of said Facebook as it was where my friends were most active. Since I started my blog in June this year I have been in love with twitter, the blogging community on there is amazing and the chats you get to join in to and get to know fellow bloggers that soon become your friends too. 

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

I would have to say either writing in my journal or having a bit of a binge watch on either Netflix or Youtube both are rather addictive and occasionally if I am feeling confident enough I will film and upload a video. 



 Question 8: What’s your favourite junk food?

Diam Bars. Although I am on a diet at the moment if someone handed me one I would not let it melt away in my bag. A chocolate bar like that should be appreciated and enjoyed.

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

I have only had a hamster as my mum has asthma so I was being considerate of her, his name was Marley he was a black dwarfy that soon turned grey..,lasted nearly two years and used to go like stink on his wheel all night it was fascinating to watch when I couldn’t sleep.

 Question 10: What are your number one favourite nonfiction / fiction books?

Without a doubt it would be The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S Lewis. I find it so magical and the way that C.S Lewis has wrote it makes it enjoyable to read at any age. I always wish my wardrobe had snow in the back and went to Narnia and Aslan the Lion was there.


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

I am so in awe of the Collection lasting perfection 16hr concealer. For a mere price of £4.19 it works miracles on my black bags.

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

Probably when I was in hospital and there was a really fit doctor doing the rounds, there was me looking my worst and I turned round and said luckily I don’t always look like this…face in palm moment.

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

I would say cranberry and raspberry squash its absolutely delicious I know it’s a weird one but least its semi good for me.

 Question 14: What’s your favourite movie?

Bridget jones hands down…

  • Its quotable as anything: wanton sex goddess with a very bad man between her thighs.
  •  The eye candy is second to none. I know both Colin and Hugh have aged but still
  • Bridget shows its ok to wear big pants and be sexy ha ha.


 Question 15: What was your favourite lesson in school and why?

I would have to say science, though I couldn’t understand it and only scrapped through it in my GCSE’s I liked the teacher I had in each year they were pleasing on the eye but I was forever getting sent out of class for talking so was never in their good books.

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

Italy for sure, it has so much culture to it, its beautiful and the language is actually quite nice to listen to, if only I understood what they were saying.

Question 17: PC or Mac?

I have a HP laptop always been with Microsoft with my laptops as I find I know what I am doing. I do however have an iPhone and iPad so I am keeping Microsoft and apple both happy.

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

I was bought a necklace from a admirer it was called forever and it was pink, I sometimes wear it. Mostly I like to look at it and smile

 Question 19: Favourite celebrity?

There is so many to chose from but I really do love Meryl Streep.

  • She has featured in some amazing films.
  • She has sass without being cocky about it 
  • and for her age she looks pretty damn good.


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

I want to be friends with all the bloggers I have come across I could simply not choose one person.Each and every person i come across while reading their posts if they make me smile they are doing a good job

 Question 21: Who is your biggest inspiration?

I would say myself and I am sorry If that sounds odd, when I look back and see how far I have come it spurs me on to do more.

Question 22: What is your favourite blog to read?

A blog that has thought put into it and not just full of pictures or a few words. I like it when a blog leaves me wanting to see what they write next time.

 Question 23: What is your favourite high street shop?

Good old Primark. The one I go to is huge and you can literally lose yourself in there for few hours. I have lost myself in there before and had to phone my friend to find out where she was


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

I finished my education 3 years ago. I am a trained beauty and massage therapist, rubbish at experimenting with eyeshadows though. Not currently working at the mo just enjoying writing and doing my blogging.

 Question 25: One thing you are proud of?

Being the person I am today. At school I would have never spoke up and I wasn’t a confident person but somehow I have bloomed into a strong woman

My October likes 

As I turn over the calendar to October I can’t help but get a little bit excited.

My Mum and Dad decided to have me in this month, the funny story is… 31 years ago when mum pushed me out they said Well done you’ve had a girl…mum said are you sure? Positive. There are no dangly bits. She was convinced I was going to be Ryan and not Holly.

So yeah as old as I am I still enjoy celebrating my birthday and counting down the days secretly ( childish I know ) 🙊

I adore the autumn time, you get to wrap up in your winter warmers early and go out for walks with such pretty scenery and crunchy leaves

This is my favourite item of clothing at the mo a Primark special £10 baby pink turtleneck…super soft to touch too.

This was the other Sunday afternoon walking off our roast. So lucky in England to have the occasional beautiful day that’s me being sarcastic. Got my phone out and clicked away.

I started Slimming World halfway through October and managed to get slimmer of the week last week. I was so gobsmacked. But happy of course.

This is my favourite find this month on Pinterest it symbolises me as I walk around the house looking very similar 😜

Let’s see what November brings xxx

20 things you don’t know about me


  1. For talent Tuesday at junior school I played the recorder with my nose to the whole school, I some how don’t think it would be Britains got talent worthy. The Queen would think i was very ill mannered.
  2. I got my one and only tattoo when my dad was in a coma ( it’s a H on my tummy for Holly) so hoping when he came back around he would remember what the H meant. Bless my dad, he did 🙂
  3. If I am lucky and not very heavily made up I can still get on the bus for a 15 year old, that’s 15 years younger than my age…saving the pennies and all that.
  4. I failed science at school because I was too busy swooning over my teacher. Wish I had listened to him instead of looking at him.
  5. I have suffered with a stutter since the age of 5, some of you will have noticed it and some never will. It’s a nervous thing.
  6. The reason I talk so much is because I hate awkward silences it makes me feel anxious.
  7. I have never been abroad, the furthest I have been is to Margate.
  8. I took singing lessons but I am out of practise now. I did used to be quite good.
  9. I remember kissing my friend once in her bedroom her mum caught us. We couldn’t exactly say to her we were just growing up and experimenting.
  10. I sung for Michael Eavis at a karaoke competition and won £80
  11. I have emetaphobia even the word sick makes me go funny
  12. When it comes to relationships I don’t have a type, if I like you I like you
  13.  If you can’t find me in a shop look in the stationary aisle
  14.  I first became obsessed with the colour pink after watching legally blonde and I’ve never looked back.
  15. I once lived next door to a rock star. He was the nicest rock star I have ever met, the only one actually.
  16.  I kicked my teacher in her vajayjay on year 6 camp, not intentionally though she was helping me out of a harness poor Miss Thompson.
  17. Two of my favourite foods are Fish and sprouts, I know It’s a weird one but hey we all can’t be the same.
  18. For nearly 2 years I pee standing up. No I don’t have a willy I have a bladder stoma. it has  made me such a stronger person than I was before.
  19. I have wanted to write my whole life, I chose paper and pen over sweets every time.
  20. People whos eyebrows are angry looking scare me I just want to get my tweezers out and shape the hell out of them.


What makes me tick √

Let’s delve a little bit deeper so you can get to know me a little better.

Being happy in life is one thing we all strive to achieve daily.

Heres a few things that bring a smile to my face and that can turn my frown upside down.

A playlist on Spotify

This one I am loving at the moment, I made it myself and it’s got some new songs and old on there. A song is quite a powerful thing, get the right lyrics and you got a happy listener.

Perfect Eye Candy 

These four men are just mmm.

  • My love for Colin Firth when I first saw him in Bridget Jones over a decade ago. He can be my Mr Darcy any day.
  • I managed to bag myself a VIP ticket 2 years ago to meet Paul Hollywood and got talking with him, real down to earth and very easy on the eye. Don’t know how I managed to not stutter or faint.
  • When I was 10 I went to watch Phillip Scofield in Joseph and the amazing technicolour dreamcoat. Little did i know he would become the fine silver fox that he is today. Being 3 rows back watching him perform in a loin cloth would have been more appreciated my age now.
  • Lastly, Adrian Grenier caught my eye years ago when he was the curly-haired lad in Entourage then in The Devil Wears Prada. I don’t know there’s just something about him.


A Poem with meaning

Being a lover of writing you can always find happiness in words.

This is one I have recently stumbled across, its written by a talented poet Erin Hanson. There is plenty of her work on Pinterest.


A Hug

Ever since i was a little girl i have been a hugger. I don’t go overboard with one but sometimes its just what you need. No matter who it’s from it doesn’t necessarily have to be the loving kind just at the right time.


There you go, now you know me a bit better than the start of reading this.
