Q and A Time

I absolutely love reading other people’s Q and A’s so I thought I’d do my own. Here are some questions I was asked…

Why did you start blogging?

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve been so in love with writing. So when I found out about blogging and others reading what you write I just had to join in this fab community. Never looked back.

What do you do to unwind?

I think putting on your pjs after a nice soak in the bath, curling up in a blanket with a hot water bottle and some eye candy on Tele is just my idea of unwinding.

What’s one thing you wish you could have told your younger self?

That no matter what life throws at you, don’t let it get you down. Be brave and plod on the best way you can.

How long have you and your best friend been best friends?

Oh my, we have been friends our whole life. Well I’m 8 months older than Jessica but our mums have been great friends even before we were both born. Our nicknames came 15 years later, hers is Trev and Mine is Bertie 🙈

What’s one item of clothing that you will never wear again even if it’s come back in fashion?

Oh that is easy – A shell suit. I mean I adored my pink one at the time but to give my honest opinion… it was a hideous item of clothing and let’s hope they don’t come round a second time. Sorry mum lol.

Do you regret anything?

Yes I regret losing my virginity when I did with who I did. If only I could turn back the clock I’d definitely not have made that mistake. Generally I try and live with no regrets.

Man crush / Woman crush?

Oooo Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz. This hasnt changed for years.

One beauty product you can’t live without?

I’d say foundation simply because you can just put a bit of it on to give you a bit of a colour if you’re looking tired or a bit pale or need to conceal some spots.

Physically, what do you look for in a potential boyf?

I’ve always looked at eyes first they tell so much and a nice jaw line (yeah I know I’m a bit weird)

Your moto in life?

Live Laugh Love

Its something i think we all should do every day. Live life to its fullest, laugh, its the best medicine. Lastly love with all your heart.

I hope you enjoyed finding out a bit more about me.

Til next time my beauts xx

A Random Q and A

it’s Saturday morning, it’s peeing down outside, how English…

Anyways I thought I would do a very laid back post today and find some questions from good old Pinterest to answer. Some may be quite interesting others may be a bit random, its all a bit of fun so let’s begin.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

I wanted to be an author. I wanted to write from a young age and my dream has come true. My book is now on Amazon.

which friends character do you relate to the most?

I would have loved to of said Rachael but I am going to have to say Phoebe because of her randomness.  I like her can’t sing to save my life but give it a good try.

whats your favourite accent?

I absolutely love the Irish accent. On a weekly basis, you would hear me and my mum saying words in an Irish accent. I find it funny that they don’t really pronounce TH. I like the welsh too but an Irish man talking just melts me.

Do you have any scars?

I have 3 keyhole scars from my gallbladder removal 10 years ago, a big scar from my bladder reconstruction surgery from 3 years ago. oooo and from troublesome skin, I have some scarring on my cheeks. All scars have a story.

Favourite swear word?

I am going to say fuck. I have after all the years of writing fuck on a text message and it comes up duck I have it sorted…put it in your phone book. no number needed and your phone won’t get it mixed up. I don’t condone swearing all the time just when it’s needed.

Whats your guilty pleasure?

I think most of my friends and readers know I have a weakness for silver foxes also even though he isn’t grey I love a bit of Colin Firth. Who doesn’t?

What are you wearing?

A pink cropped hooded jumper, black leggings, Disney socks, an oversized scarf and a hot water bottle…yes I am wearing it. it’s never too far away.

Favourite boys and girls name?

I love the name Frankie for a boy and Lola for a girl…i actually would change my name to Lola if I could.

Favourite movie ever

Bridget obviously….closely followed by Dirty Dancing and Now and Then…all very quotable I could watch them over and over again without getting bored.

A celebrity you can’t stand?

I can’t stand Michael Macintyre simply because I really don’t like a comedian who laughs at his own jokes before the audience has. Give me Mickey Flanagan any day.

Ever skinny dipped?

No never skinny dipped but I definitely wouldn’t say no…something about just being free and in the sea, it’s like a ginormous bath without the bubbles.

Do you like yourself?

I didn’t use to say 2 or 3 years back.I didn’t like looking in the mirror for too long and didn’t like my body shape but I am learning to love myself and all of my flaws. I am much more body positive these days,

There you have it a get to know me in question form. I probably will do more of these at some point they get your mind thinking.

Have a fab weekend

Til next time…

I have been following Tarnya for some time and I was delighted when she wanted to come on my blog to do a Q and A.

so without further ado  let’s jump in with the Questions

1) What are your top 3 favourite books?

I couldn’t possibly pick just ONE book from the Harry Potter series, so I’ll have to say the entire series as my first choice!

Then I absolutely love Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk, it’s dark but I love all of his books.

Then lastly I’d have to say Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur, I read it recently and it really rekindled my love for poetry.

2) What is your favourite cruelty-free brand/product?

I love Nars, Charlotte Tilbury and The Ordinary for CF make up! Also Superdrug own brand is good and affordable too!

3) What did you want to be when you were asked at the start of school and has it changed?

I wanted to be a Vet when I was younger, but then I heard you had to put your arm up a cows bottom and changed my mind! I’ve never really known what I want to do, but I’m happy with my current job as a games tester in the Video Game Industry.

4) What are your favourite arty things to create?

I actually am obsessed with photography, it’s my favourite thing. I want to try and incorporate more photography with art like an art journal or scrapbook this year for fun.

One off Feature Friday with Lizanne and Eden

Today I have two bloggers I have only recently discovered and I thought why not bring them to my blog to do a Q and A.

Both girls totally different but totally fabulous so here we go with Lizanne from Lizanne_style.

1) What 3 make up products are your must-haves and why?

A) The 3 make up products that are my must-haves are a good primer as it will help your foundation go on a lot smoother, a good foundation as once you have that sorted everything else it easy and a good setting spray as your makeup will look more natural and less powdery.

2) What song reminds you of your childhood, what song do you love to put on repeat and what song can you not stand?

A) The song that reminds me of my childhood is Last Christmas as it was the last song recorded by Wham, the song I love to put on repeat is Small Town Throwdown as I love Country music and the song that I cannot stand has got to be I’ve got a song that will get on your nerves as it does get on my nerves.

3) Other than where you live now where would you like to live and why?

A) I would love to live in New York as it has always been somewhere I would love to visit and I love theatre.

4) What’s your motto in life it advice to others?

A) My life motto is if you don’t succeed get up and try again. My advice to others is if you want something go out there and gets it and if anyone says you can’t do it ignore them as they are only jealous.

I’d like to thank both for taking part in answering the questions I came up with. I could’ve come up with some really random ones but I thought I’d be kind.

FEATURE FRIDAY Q & A

Todays Feature Friday blogger is AUTUMNSKYESBLOG who is a bit of a brainbox and I’m a little jealous as I wasn’t too academic at school.

What are you studying at the moment?

I’m in my third and penultimate year of Medical Sciences. I’m spending this year on placement working with a epidemiology research group – we statistically study enormous amounts of data to test whatever healthy-ageing-related hypothesis we want, collaborate with specialists and publish papers! (geek alert) To keep this short and sweet, having studied health data of half a million people I give you these tips to age well.

1) Keep your cardiovascular system (heart, blood vessels) healthy – the way to do that is exercise regularly and try to keep a fairly balanced diet avoiding the obvious fatty, sugary culprits! It reaaaally makes a difference in literally every way imaginable.

2) Build up muscle – you will thank yourself when you’re old. Sarcopenia (muscle mass, strength and quality loss) is rife among the elderly and it causes all sorts of problems. Aside from the obvious mobility issues, it can be linked to neurological disease as well… Even if you are predisposed to losing muscle, the more you have to begin with, the more ‘buffer’ you have until it becomes a problem, right?

3) Look after your mental health just as much as physical health.

I’m aware no one asked for a health lesson but nonetheless you’re welcome lol xoxo 

Where is your favourite place to get away to?

Berlin! When I’m there I get the feeling I don’t have in any other place – you know when a place just feels like YOUR place? It’s no wonder I got my identity-defining cactus-embroidered boy fit jeans from there! Berlin transformed me into my current careless self.

What would your dream job be?

Doctor! Failing that, a dog handler for the police or military!

Why did you start blogging? 

Funny story – I got in trouble at uni for not referencing properly and it made me so angry I almost did it to get back at the people – having a place to write where I don’t have to answer to anyone. Somewhere I don’t have to reference or have a word limit.
