The 20 Things Tag


Still no giveaway ready sorry, I got the horrible sickness bug last week that half of the UK seemed to have got last week which through be off course. The posts and pictures are about halfway done, so stay tuned – It’s coming, I promise!

I wasn’t tagged to do this, but saw this over on Rachwat’s blog, and as I’m playing catch up thought that it would be an easy way to get up to date.

Question 1: How tall are you?

 5 ft 11, Didn’t quite make it to 6!

Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?

 Apart from my job and baking cakes, I’m not good at anything! I used to be able to play the flute and keyboard – but wouldn’t have any idea now!

Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

 Not being able to get good light to capture the colour of something properly, at this time of year it’s especially difficult, having to rely on indoor light too much.

Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?

Bullshitting, People who say they’ve text me when they haven’t, sent something in the post and they haven’t, or forgot to bring something over. I can see right through it especially with people I know well as they’re normal mannerisms change with the lie, Just don’t lie, I’d prefer you were honest and said ‘I forgot’ or just didn’t say anything at all.

Question 5: What’s your favourite song?

Changes all the time and depending on my mood but currently loving:

  1. The Tempest by Pendulum
  2. Like I Can by Sam Smith
  3. Of Monsters & Men Little Talks

Question 6: What’s your favourite Etsy shop that isn’t yours?

Weird question?! I don’t have a favourite etsy shop – I’lve only ever made 2 purchases, although I am craving some prints  for my make up room from I See Noise:

Question 7: What’s your favourite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?

Watching films I’m never allowed to watch otherwise whilst eating Nachos. then painting my nails.

Question 8: What’s your favourite junk food?

Chocolate if you count that as Junk food, or KFC Variety Meal if not!

Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

A question that always comes up!

Dexter, Beagle, 2 in May, latest fine moment below.


Question 10: What are your number one favourite nonfiction and fiction books?

I can’t recall reading any nonfiction books, currently doing the 5:2 diet, so I’ve been reading snippets of the book to learn up, but not a ‘favourite’.

Fiction books probably Hunger Games or as much as I hate to say it 50 shades, I love a book series!

Question 11: What’s your favourite beauty product?

That’s a hard question to narrow down every beauty product to just one, hair care, skin care, make up, nails! How are you meant to pick!

Long time favourite: Seche Vite – No top coat beats it

Current Favourite since getting in October: Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

I don’t know, I really don’t get embarrassed easily at all. Someone walked in to the toilet cubicle I was in  at work the other day and I waved back!

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Strawberry & Lime Koppaberg

Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?

Wolf of Wall Street

Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?

I really don’t know, I wasn’t a nerd until University, I was pretty sporty/did a lot of dance, liked fashion and beauty and had lots of different friends so probably a cheerleader out of those!

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Honestly, probably where I do now, which is a boring answer. I wouldn’t want to live away from my family for any significant amount of time. But if I was picking a holiday home for 6 months of the year say… somewhere in America, or Australia maybe – really not good with languages so extended time where there would be a language barrier would be a problem.

Question 17: PC or Mac?

Has to be Mac as a designer, I’ve 100% sold my soul to Apple.

Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?

When I was ill last week my boyfriend bought me home some flowers to say get well soon. Also over Christmas although I didn’t ask for a single thing, he had listened to everything that I had mentioned for months (since September), and he had liased with family to get me lots of things I hadn’t thought of asking for, and I loved every gift.

Question 19: Favourite celebrity?

Has be to Taylor Swift.

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want be best friends with?

Not secretly, Gemsmaquillage and Fleur de force. Would also love an afternoon with the Saccone Jolys!
