    Get To Know Me Tag

    Happy Sunday everyone! Today is my first of two days off work, I’ve just finished cleaning and tidying my bedroom, and now I’m super ready to spend the rest of this time relaxing. A couple of days ago I was reading through Jennifer Juan‘s Get to Know Me tag post, only to find that she’d mentioned me in one of her answers as her favourite blog! <3 She is an absolutely lovely lady, very intelligent and has a way with words that I adore. Be sure to check out her writing, her poetry is wonderful!

    Get To Know Me

    What is your middle name? My middle name is George.

    What was your favourite subject at school? Oh god this is terrible, I can’t think of a single lesson that I was happy to go to. I suppose if I had to choose then art was probably my favourite – I ended up going on to do it at college at least!

    Here I am in my final year of school. Quite clearly I loved being there.

    What is your favourite drink? I do love a Malibu and orange, but coffee is pretty great too.

    What is your favourite song at the moment? I recently rediscovered my love for The Weeknd’s album Beauty Behind The Madness and, just like when it first came out, I can’t stop listening to the song Acquainted.

    What is your favourite food? I LOVE FOOD SO MUCH. THIS QUESTION IS CRUEL. I think I have to go for pizza – a Papa Johns one with pineapple, olives and no cheese. Yum.

    What is the last thing you bought? I went to a cafe with my mum, two sisters and one of my brothers the other day and paid for everyone’s food and drinks cos I’m lovely.

    Favourite book of all time? Honestly? I’m not a big reader. The last book I read was Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, which I really enjoyed. The only book that I’ve gone back and read twice is Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann – so I suppose that’s probably my favourite.

    Favourite colour? Blue!

    Do you have any pets? I have a 16-year-old tortoiseshell cat called Bella, and a lionhead rabbit called Gizmo who will be 4 years old next month.

    Favourite perfume? Oh god am I supposed to have a favourite perfume? Wait – am I supposed to own perfume??

    Favourite holiday? I went to Corfu with my family in 2013 and I still think about it all the time. Such a lovely place, hopefully I can afford to go back one day.

    Are you married? Ha I wish.

    Have you ever been out of the country, if so how many times? Yes. Let’s see…I’ve been to Texas once, France 2 or 3 times, Vienna once, Spain once, Germany once, Corfu once, and Amsterdam once. So 8 or 9 times. Does Wales count as out of the country? Because I’ve been there too!

    Do you speak any other language? At one point I spoke pretty decent Spanish, enough to get by and have conversations, but I think that’s all disappeared from my brain now!

    How many siblings do you have? Too many. I have a 12-year-old brother, a 10-year-old sister, a 6-year-old brother and a sister who will be 2 this month. It’s hard work being the oldest child!

    What is your favourite shop? Damn. I don’t know. Anywhere that I can find cruelty free makeup I guess! The Disney Store is pretty great too, I miss having one in Brighton.

    Favourite restaurant? Grubbs. If you come to Brighton, you have got to try a Grubbs burger. (It’s a fast food restaurant! That still counts as a restaurant!)

    When was the last time you cried? Woah. I can’t actually remember. I guess it must have been about a week ago or something, that’s pretty impressive!

    Favourite blog? This is a tough one, but I’ve really been enjoying Darling Jordan‘s posts since recently discovering her blog. She writes about things in a way that’s clear, informative and keeps me interested, and her accompanying photos are lovely. Also…she has a bunny!

    Favourite movie? The Aristocats.

    Favourite TV shows? I’m addicted to It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, and Catfish. I’m also currently making my way through The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on Netflix!

    PC or Mac? I’ve only ever owned PCs, although I was recently looking at buying a MacBook Air – I’ve now prioritised spending my hard-earned money on groceries and vet bills though!

    What phone do you have? iPhone 6.

    How tall are you? 5’4″, give or take.

    Can you cook? Yeah I can cook some decent meals. I am the only vegan in the house, so I don’t have much choice!
