Whilst I have done a few non nail polish reviews in the past, it has been the sole focus of my blog. However at the moment is becoming quite hard to keep up with. I bought a house a few months ago, and the work of building things, decorating, gardening etc – never seems to end, especially at the weekends, so photographing something I get round to changing once or twice a week in a perfect state, right now is quite hard getting the photography for them right has to be perfect. I’ve wrote a lot of posts recently, but when I’ve loaded up the photography to my computer, it hasn’t been quite right. I want to post more regularly, so I’m looking for some easier ideas to maintain!
I’ve got some ideas of posts I want to make over the coming weeks, but thought they would be better lead by get to know me questions first…
1. Are you named after anyone?
I don’t think I’ve ever said my name before (on my blog), when I first started I was planning on keeping it anonymous, I only blog for myself as it’s something I enjoy doing and I don’t want to force it down people’s throats as it’s not the reason I started it – there’s only 3 people who I know (in real life) who know I blog, 2 of which were a mistake. That was a bit of a ramble not related to the question…
Let my formally introduce myself, my name is Rachael, I’m 24 – and no I’m not names after anyone. And that’s me to the right!
2. When was the last time you cried?
I had a tremendously bad day at work a few weeks ago after several long stressful months and everything/everyone was really getting to me. So I burst out into tears at my desk like an emotional wreck. Since then people approach me a lot more calmly incase I have another mental breakdown.
3. Do you have kids?
4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I think so, I’d like to think I’m a good friend, most people I know could ask me in the middle of the night to come and drive 100 miles to pick them up and I would!
5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
A lot would be an understatement, it’s where the main bulk of my humour lies!
6. Will you ever bungee-jump?
It’s not something I would actively seek to do, but it’s not something I wouldn’t not like to do.
7. What’s your favourite cereal?
Krave/Chocolate Pillows… but I normally eat something better for me such as granola!
8. What’s the first thing you notice about people?
The main real observation I make other than the obvious such as what they’re wearing, is how they present themselves to others – and how they want people to perceive them. That sounds like I’m some kind of psychologist… I’m not!
9. What is your eye colour?
10. Scary movie or happy endings?
Happy endings, I don’t find much entertainment in anything more ‘scary’ than a thriller!
11. Favorite smells?
Freshly baked cakes & Michael Kors Very Hollywood
12. Summer or winter?
Summer weather and life (e.g BBQs) but with winter wardrobes!
13. Computer or television?
Oooh, I can’t choose! I love lots and lots of TV shows – I watch them more than movies. But a computer could if push came to shove replace a TV with a computer.
14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
15. Do you have any special talents?
I wish I did! I’m good at my job but that’s about as far as my talents go!
16. Where were you born?
Boston, Lincolnshire, UK (aka the fat capital of the UK)
17. What are your hobbies?
Designing (see Q21), Dog Walking (see Q18), Reading, Craft – I have a lot of half started projects as I get distracted by working on something new!
18. Do you have any pets?
A super cute sleeper but incredibly naughty beagle, now 1 year old – called Dexter. See inserts below for some of his finest moments
19. Favourite movie?
As I said before I kind of prefer TV shows to movies, I get much more engrossed in a long storyline. So I’ll name a few things:
Current Favourite TV: Orange is the New Black (I’ve almost finished season 2 – no spoilers please)
Longstanding Favourite TV: Grey’s Anatomy – A friend at uni forced me (seriously – she locked me in her room) to watch an episode with her. Since then I’ve not looked back, it’s the one show which has to be watched on the night it airs as I can’t bare any spoilers/contain my excitement for that long.
Favourite Movie: The Wolf of Wall Street – I love Leonardo Di Caprio in general, but he really was flawless in that film.
20. Do you have any siblings?
Yes 1 younger sister, who I’m incredibly close to.
21. What do you want to be when you grow up?
I’ll take that to mean, what do you do as a job, as a 24 year old I would hope that I am an Adult (although I do try hard not to act like one sometimes) .
I’m a web designer, and work for a large TV shopping channel largely at the moment with the fashion department – as well as doing freelance social media/graphics/consultancy/branding/SEO/print work on the side.
I tag, ‘real life people’ I know Annika & Chloe at Two Little Owls to do this, If you don’t already follow them check them out, they’re really nice, in real life and all that.
If you’ve got any ideas for posts for me, non nail polish or nail polish, please let me know!
