Blogmas Day 20 - Blogger tag

Evening everyone, and welcome to Day 20 of Blogmas. How can it almost be over? Even though it's been hard, Blogmas has actually been fun and I've thoroughly enjoyed it!

For today's post, it's going to be a 'get to know me'. The lovely Katie (from silverglowx) tagged me in this and I am quite excited to do this. Usually with these I have to make up questions and I struggle hard to think of some, so I'm glad I have some already!

Questions 1: How tall are you?
Surprisingly, I'm 5ft 1, so I'm pretty tiny. Also, my boyfriend's younger cousin is actually taller than me and so are some 11 year olds - which is hilariously shocking.

Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent?
Besides whistling like a bird, drinking a Caprisun in under 14 seconds and having eyebrows that grow back in shape no matter how long it's been since they've been waxed - I don't think I have a hidden talent?

Question 3: What's your biggest blog related pet peeve?
I don't see this as a pet peeve really, but something I wish was less common is photos which contain white marble. I know it's a classic "blogger aesthetic", but honestly, I'm kind of bored of seeing it? I know some bloggers love it, some hate it, but I wish that people weren't so... Repetitive? I honestly can't word it really - but it doesn't mean that if I see a blog with white marble in the photo I won't read the post, because I will.

Question 4: What's your biggest non-related blog pet peeve?
SLOW WALKERS. Nothing irks me more than when I'm trying to be on a mission and get shopping done in a short amount of time and it is literal slow walker season. It royally p*sses me right off and the amount of times I've cursed under my breath is ridiculous. Like, I could be a millionaire if I had £1 for every time I've cursed at a person who has been a slow walker.

As well as this, people buying followers for Twitter/Instagram is something I find a bit silly. Sure, it makes you seem like you have a big following and are popular, but it's not necessary, really. Growth is all about gaining naturally.

Question 5: What's your favourite song?
I've got so many that I literally cannot pick a favourite. I guess if I had to pick one I had to listen to for the rest of my life it would be something by Panic! at the Disco or Imagine Dragons.

Question 6: What's your favourite social media website?
Twitter for definite. It's allowed me to meet loads of new bloggers and make some new connections, which makes me really happy and so glad Twitter is a thing!

Question 7: What’s your favourite way to spend your time when you’re alone?
I used to hate spending time alone because I'd get bored of doing something easily, but this Christmas break I've actually not got bored of what I've been doing. Usually, I'll scroll social media feeds, read, play Pokémon Emerald/Leaf Green, play some games on Steam, watch TV and blog.

Question 8: Whats your favourite junk food?
I love Chinese food (if that is even classed as junk food?), and I also love KFC hot wings and Subway (again, not sure if that's classed as junk food?).

Question 9: Do you have a pet or pet(s)? If so, what kind and what are their names?
I've got two dogs, one is a Lakeland Terrier crosed with a Jack Russell called Tommy and another called Mabel (no idea what breed she is, she is a total mix). I have one cat which is a Black Moggie called Sasha (fact: I named her after the Bratz doll when I was 9), and a dwarf hamster called Chip. Also, currently, I have 4 degu's residing in my home - 3 of which aren't named and one is called Sasuke (yes, like the one off Naruto).

Question 10: What are your number one favourite non-fiction and fiction books?
I love to read a lot, and my favourite fiction book is torn between anything by James Dashner (particularly The Maze Runner series and The Mortality Doctrine series), and Who We Were Before by Leah Mercer. I don't read non-fiction books in all honesty, although I own one or two which I do like (A Work In Progress by Connor Franta and Columbine by Dave Cullen).

Question 11: What’s your favourite beauty product or tool?
My eyeliner, NYX Lip Lingerie (thanks Con) or Kate Moss 107 lipstick - they are my staples.

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
My life is literally a walking embarrassment in terms of I just embarrass myself all the bloody time (I just live with it and laugh). I can't remember the last time I did something embarrassed or had something embarrassing happen in all honesty.

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life what would it be?
I'd drink this cola drink that I get from Aldi because it's zero sugar and tastes like blended up cola bottles. Or I'd happily drink chocolate soy milk forever, because it's beautiful.

Question 14: What’s your favourite movie?
My favourite movie would have to be either Tangled, Big Hero 6 or The Little Mermaid. I love them all so much and they all tug on my heart strings.

Question 15: What was your favourite lesson at school?
I loved English because I was good at it, as well as I loved to write stories, poetry... Anything really. However, I also loved French, Welsh, Italian, I.C.T. and Sociology (you'll learn that I am a very indecisive girl).

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
As much as I love other places, I love my own country. Wales is beautiful and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else, even though as I child I wanted to live in Malmo, Sweden.

Question 17: PC or Mac?
PC for definite. I've owned a Mac once and I didn't like it at all.

Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse? 
(Or any kind gesture from a friend)
As a person, my boyfriend is extremely sweet and treats me so well, I love it so much. The last romantic gesture from him was cuddling me goodnight and falling asleep snuggling with me (which I usually struggle with since me and I get sleep twitches sometimes and we both roll about a lot in our sleep).

Question 19: Favourite celebrity?
I love Bradley Cooper as an actor. He's a really good one and I'd happily spend a day watching his movies. That, and I LOVE Candice Swanepoel and Katy Perry.

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?
In terms of big bloggers, I'd love to be besties with Zoella, Fleur de Force, Louise Pentland, Tanya Burr... You know what I mean, they all seem so lovely (even though I have met Zoe and Louise) and I'd love to be friends with them. In terms of bloggers that I know of, Shannon, Elly, Claire are definitely my favourite bloggers out there and I'd consider them blogger besties (although I do want to meet them all one day!).

Question 21: Who is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration is going to have to be my boyfriend. I know he's had a tough time in life and he's come out the other end and his response to it and to life just inspires me to take a leaf from his book. He's helped me through tough times (and put up with my weirdo ass for nearly a year) and I can't thank him enough for everything that he's done for me. I thank him a lot, but I honestly do mean it.

Question 22: What is your favourite blog to read?
I love Shannon, Elly and Claire's blogs so much. All 3 have different kinds of posts and ways of writing and I honestly do a little happy dance when I see that they've posted something new!

Question 23: What is your favourite high street shop?
I love New Look a lot, but I also love H&M and Topshop. Also, I love Ann Summers because they actually provide quality undies even if they are a bit on the pricier side!

Question 24: Are you in education or do you work?
I'm currently a second year university student and I did work over the summer at a care home, but I left due to mental health concerns.

Question 25: One thing you are proud of?
Honestly, I'm proud of how well I've handled my mental health issues the last three years. I've conquered severe anxiety, as well as numerous spouts of depression and I've come out the other end and I'm happy with the result.

I'd like to nominate 5 other bloggers to follow on the tag and (hopefully) answer these 25 questions!
