Get To Know Me Tag

I have been doing this for quite a while now and even though I post regularly I don’t really give much away about myself. I am a very private person, but I want to open up to you more so we can all get to know each other a little better. So, I thought what better way to do it then the Get to Know Me Tag.

I will answer all the questions with the utmost honest and if you have any questions of your own please feel free to ask me in the comments and I will get back to you or I will club them together and do another get to know me tag further on in the future.

1)             What Is Your Middle Name?

I don’t have a middle name. My mum wanted to give me a middle name because all of the other girls in her family have middle names. But, my mum and dad had a hard enough time choosing my first name that they thought that WW3 would erupt if they had to try and choose another name for me!

2)          What Was Your Favourite Subject at School?

My favourite subject was history. I loved it, I carried it on at college and then went onto do it at University. I don’t want to peruse a job in history but it is just something that I am really passionate about. I hope that one day I can go back to university to do another degree in another aspect of history. I know the fashion/beauty and history are on the other end of the spectrum to one another but it I have always thought that you need to learn about the past in order to progressively move forward.

3)          What Is Your Favourite Drink?

I wish I could say that this is something super healthy but it isn’t. Orange Lucozade is my weakness in live. I have no sugar in my diet whatsoever, so every now and then I have a bottle of this as a treat to myself. I then get a huge sugar rush and feel as sick as a dog, but while I am drinking it, it tastes like heaven. If I had to pick a favourite alcoholic drink it would be a Cosmopolitan.

4)          What Is Your Favourite Song at The Moment?

I don’t like chart music I thought I would just put that right out there. My favourite song at the minute has to be Hunter Hayes – Wanted. It is an oldie but a goodie. I have listened to it over 100 times on my iTunes and I still get excited when it randomly comes on. But then again I can literally listen to anything, from 1920’s jazz right the way up to heavy metal.

5)          What Is Your Favourite Food?

Without any hesitation this has to be Indian food. If it wasn’t bad for me I would eat this without a doubt every single day for breakfast, dinner and evening meal. I was lucky enough as a child to go to India for 3 months every year, I went hating curry and came back obsessed. I know how to cook them from scratch and they taste amazing. For me it is spicier the better!

6)          What Is the Last Thing I Bought?

A denim jacket, it had 60% off in the sale, so naturally I had to buy it even if I didn’t necessarily need it. But, in my defence I have been wearing it to death. It was from ASOS and it has a distressed look to it and just looks so stunning when it is on.

7)          Favourite Book of All Time?

Disregarding my historical factual books because I cannot imagine anybody finding that interesting. I really love the Dan Brown, Da Vinci Code series of books. Anything that crosses historical facts and puts them into a readable way, I adore. And the movies are amazing too!

8)          My Favourite Colour?

I know it isn’t technically a colour it is a shade but it’s got to be black. All day every day I wear black. Monochrome all the way. If I did have to pick an actual colour to wear it would be red. I’m not a fan of bright pinks or blues.

9)          Do You Have Any Pets?

I do, I have a puppy dog. Well she isn’t a puppy, but she is my little baby. I have a Japanese Akita named Mika. She is my lovely bundle of fluff; she is 12 years old now but still as strong as an ox. She protects me like I’m her baby which is precious. I will pop a picture of her below, and you try to tell me that she isn’t the most precious pooch you have ever seen!

10)        Favourite Perfume?

Chanel No5. It always has been. I can remember finding my mums when I was much younger, I sprayed it and instantly loved it. I then went onto use the whole bottle over every inch of my body which obviously ended in a good telling off!

11)        Favourite Seasonal Holiday?

My favourite seasonal holiday has to be Christmas. Just getting all the family together and getting to have a fortnight off work is enough to make me the happiest girl in the world. Plus normally at Christmas I throw my diet out of the window and I just eat and drink anything that I want!

12)        Are You Married?

I am not married. Me and my boyfriend have been together for years now. It is something that we both want to do but our main focus is getting our own house at the moment. We do live together in a rented property but we want to take the plunge and buy somewhere together. Maybe then marriage would be on the cards.

13)        Have You Ever Been Out the County, If So How Many Times?

I have been so fortunate in my life that I have been away a countless amount of times. I have travelled the world over thanks to my dad and his job. I moved around a lot as a child and got to visit some incredible places. He lived in Dubai for a spell and it was such a stunning place. Now, because I have a full time job I don’t get to travel as much as I want with just buying my own house, but I do go abroad a couple times a year and make the most of it.

14)        Do You Speak Any Other Languages?

I speak a little Italian. I could string together some sentences if needs be, but I am in no way fluent. Mainly just sentences to ask for a glass of wine and a bowl of pasta. If I do ask for that though in Italian and the waiter then responds in Italian I shit myself because I have no idea what they are saying!

15)        How Many Siblings Do You Have?

I have one older sister. We despise each other. When we were younger everybody would tell us that when we are older we would be the best of friends… That never happened, if anything we are worse with each other now than we have ever been. I do try to be nice to her but she throws every attempt I make back in my face. I just tell my parents that it isn’t my fault that their first born was the spawn of the Devil.

16)        What Is Your Favourite Shop?

Selfridges or Harrods. That sounds really snooty, but not everything that they sell has a massive price tag and there is everything under one roof, so I can be lazy and I don’t have to go from store to store. Because, you can guarantee that here in London it will probably be raining!

17)        Favourite Restaurant?

I don’t really have a favourite restaurant. As a rule, when I am going out for a nice meal I try not to go to the same places more than once because you never find new places doing that. Well except for the local pub!

18)        When Was the Last Time You Cried?

This sounds really pathetic but it was only like 3 days ago. I suffer with migraines which are so painful. I had been in pain with it for about a fortnight and it stops me working, driving and even leaving the house. Everything just got to me and I cried to my mama like a baby. I felt loads better after, she even went out and got me Lucozade and Dairy Milk after so I felt loads better!

19)        Favourite Blog?

Sincerely Jules. She is stunning and her style is impeccable. I love this women. She puts a post of an outfit up and I make notes on how I can recreate it, sad I know. But she’s bomb as hell. A second favourite would be Casey Holmes, she is just perfection!

20)        Favourite Movie?

The movie that I have probably watched the most in my life has to be Hercules. Not one of these shoddy remakes, the Disney classic. I am not a massive fan of princess movies because it’s all bullshit. But back to the history link and Greek mythology makes this my all-time favourite. I honestly think I could rein act this movie and play all the characters in it!

21)        Favourite TV Shows?

I have quite a few because I like to have them on while I work on my blog so here goes… The Office (US), How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory and Cuckoo. I need something on to make me laugh. The day that Netflix removed the US Office I wanted to run away, I was heartbroken!

22)        PC or MAC?

Kind of a mix of both. I have a Windows desktop computer and laptop. Then I have a MacBook Pro, MacBook, iPad and iPhone. I love them both for separate reasons. But for my desktop computer that I do most of my blog work on it has to be my Windows PC.

23)        What Phone Do You Have?

I have the iPhone 6S Plus. I have always owned an iPhone, since they first came out. I honestly cannot see myself ever wanting anything else. And for me with my blog and planning it means all my devices can sync up which is a life saver!

24)        How Tall Are You?

This question should be more like, how short are you? I am a tiny 5’1”. I look like a hobbit compared to my family. My father is one of 9, a mix of boys and girls and they are all over 6’. My mum and her side of the family are all around 5’10”, so I am very small compared to all them. Family pictures look hilarious!

25)        Can You Cook?

I have taught myself to cook over the years through necessity. And now I have to say if you don’t mind me blowing my own trumpet, I am bloody good at it. I grew up with my mother who cannot even boil pasta, so I taught myself and from being around 14 I prepared all of the family means. I love doing it, I just find it so relaxing after a day at work.

So that was it for my Get to Know Me Tag. If you have any other questions, please just ask me in the comments below and I will get straight back to you.
