Hello and Welcome!
Today’s post is going to be an interesting one as I’m going to be taking part in the Vogue parody tag and will be answering 73 questions (that’s right, 73). At some point in time I’m sure you’ve seen those Vogue interviews with celebrities where they go to their house and ask a whole load of random questions to get to know them better. Well today I’m going to be doing the same, but no one’s coming to my house, and I’m not going anywhere. These questions are very random and cover a lot of topics so if you’d like to get to know me a little better then keep on reading!
Before we get started I want to give a massive thank you to Laura from Samanthia Blogs for tagging me in this! Make sure you check out her blog and her answers to these questions.
1. What’s your usual Starbucks order?
I actually don’t really like Starbucks to be honest, I much prefer Costa! I tend to get a latte with sugar free caramel and coconut milk instead of cow’s milk (sometimes I’ll have vanilla instead of caramel). I get this either hot or iced depending on how I’m feeling.
2. What does your workstation look like?
Currently I don’t have a job but my desk at my boyfriend’s house is a fold-down table from IKEA that is mounted on the wall. When it’s folded down it’s a little shelf that has a white elephant with a faux succulent in it’s back, setting spray, hand cream, and some hair serum on it. When it’s folded up it will have my laptop, some notebooks, a coaster (with a coffee on it, of course), and a pen holder.
3. Favourite food?
Honestly this is impossible to answer, I love food from basically everywhere. Italian, French, Indian, Mediterranean, Mexican,Thai food, and more. Basically any food except for British food because we have no culture xo.
4. Favourite author?
Chuck Palahniuk (author of Fight Club).
5. What do you think of open relationships?
Personally they’re not for me as I’m insecure and get jealous easily. I don’t have an opinion on someone else having an open relationship, it’s none of my business and as long as they’re happy that’s all that matters.
6. What is your favourite video game?
This is such a hard question! I get really attached to games that I enjoy and want to 100% complete them (that includes getting all achievements). I really liked Farcry Primal, and I like Shadow of Mordor/Shadow of War, We Happy Few is also a great game. I also like more laid back/easy to play games like The Sims and LEGO games. On my Laptop I tend to play MMORPGs if I’m going to play anything (I currently have Guild Wars 2 installed). I don’t play anywhere near as much as I used to, I really want to get back into it.
7. Guilty pleasure treat?
Probably Krispy Kreme!
8. Favourite movie?
Questions about my favourite of anything are so hard to answer because it really depends on my mood. I watch Elf every Christmas so I guess that’s up there as one of my favourite films, then just any Disney film really. I think my favourite films are ones that are easy to watch and films I’ve watched multiple times.
9. Favourite book?
I actually have no idea for this one! I like Chuck Palahniuk books as I’ve already said but I wouldn’t say I have a favourite. I’d really recommend to read Junk by Melvin Burgess if you haven’t before, it’s such a great book.
10. Twitter or Instagram?
Instagram for posting photos, Twitter for literally everything else. Twitter is so much better for engagement I find (people actually answering your questions) and for memes but Twitter can be a pretty negative place too everyone seems to be angry about something and want to give their opinion. I once Tweeted about how I buy Dominos when I have money and there were people commenting saying how awful Dominos is and how Pizza Hut is better – you basically can’t Tweet anything without someone arguing with you or telling you you’re a liar. If you find the right people and have thick skin (or are liberal with the block button) then it’s great though.
11. Desktop or laptop?
12. Best advice you’ve ever received?
I’m not really sure to be honest, I feel like I just learn as I go. What I always tell people though is always be nice and calm no matter what, if you’re being nice to someone and they’re angry and unreasonable then they’re going to look like an idiot, not you.
13. What project are you working on right now?
Project sort my life out. It’s not going well.
14. Favourite colour?
I used to always say orange (like sunset orange) but I think my favourite colour is actually pink to be honest.
15. Did you get good grades in school?
At the time I was friends with a lot of really smart people who got the best grades and I would always feel bad about myself but looking back at my GCSE results, yeah I think they were good! It’s only gone downhill from there.
16. Dream job?
Blogging/social media full-time. However, seems unlikely considering I’ve never done a sponsored post – I’ve rejected quite a few because it’s either not worth the money to just shove something up on my blog that I know people won’t actually like, or they’ve asked me to not declare it’s sponsored. So for now, I’m living the poor life. Otherwise just any job that’s low stress but pays enough for me to live comfortably, that still allows me enough time to blog and make content.
17. Play any sports?
Nah, I am a couch potato.
18. Do you have a degree?
Yes, I have a 2:1 degree in English and am currently finishing a postgraduate diploma in Events Management.
20. What is your favourite kind of blog post?
I enjoy reviews, and lifestyle posts, I also like more personal posts from bloggers as I like to get to know people.
21. What do you like to collect?
Plants! I absolutely love plants.
22. Describe yourself in three words?
Funny, caring, weird (or ‘what a mess’).
23. If you were a rapper, what would your stage name be?
‘Who let me do this’.
24. Who was the last person you DMed?
My friend Sian.
25. What’s on the top of your wish list right now?
This little tripod with bendy legs that connects via Bluetooth to your phone and comes with a button so you can take photos remotely. That, or a house.
26. Sorting house?
If you mean like Harry Potter then I’m a Slytherin (reserve your judgement).
27. How many tattoos do you have?
I currently have five and am adding to that number when I have money/when someone buys me a voucher. I have three on my left shoulder which I’m planning on continuously adding to, these are a peace symbol with vines/flowers on it, a butterfly, and some cherry blossoms, then I have my star sign symbol (Capricorn) on my right wrist, and a dot work elephant on the right side of my rib cage.
28. What are you most grateful for this year?
My boyfriend being the best person ever.
29. Whats the best thing that’s happened to you this month?
It’s literally the second day of the month so nothing, plus I don’t really do anything.
30. What’s the best thing that’s happened to you today?
I don’t do a lot on a day to day basis so again, nothing.
31. What’s the best thing ever?
When it gets towards the end of the year (September-December) and it’s getting colder so you can wear jumpers and snuggle in bed with candles and hot chocolate. I just like being cosy and I find I feel more positive the closer it gets to December for some reason.
32. Favourite season?
33. Favourite holiday?
Halloween or Christmas. I absolutely love Halloween but I never really do anything for it, I just like doing a bunch of different spooky makeup looks. I love Christmas because I love giving gifts but I find the build up towards one day being perfect is a bit much.
34. What fictional character do you relate to the most?
No idea at all.
35. Do you like surprises?
Yes and no. I’m a control freak and when I don’t organise things myself it makes me really anxious. However, if I really trust the person, they know me well, and they’ve assured me it’s something I want/would like to do, then yes I love surprises.
36. What’s the biggest surprise you’ve ever had?
I haven’t really had any positive surprises.
37. Which surprise made you cry?
I can’t think of one to be honest.
38. What’s the best surprise you’ve ever given someone else?
Again I’m not really sure. I tend to buy Christmas presents that people don’t ask for/aren’t aware of so I suppose every Christmas I give surprises. I’d love to randomly give people gifts or book holidays as surprises but I don’t have the money for it.
39. Do you like muffins?
Of course, who doesn’t?!
40. Do you cook often?
Not as much as I’d like. My boyfriend and I try out a new recipe every week which I really enjoy but I don’t really cook that often. I spend most days at my boyfriend’s house (he lives with his family) so it’s not really easy to just randomly start cooking something. Also I lost interest in doing a lot of things, cooking being one of them, I’m hoping I feel like doing it more when I start feeling better.
41. What’s your favourite dessert?
Desserts are my absolute favourite but it really depends on my mood! I think my favourites are cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding but there’s very few puddings that I wouldn’t be happy to receive.
42. Is there a dessert you don’t like?
I can’t think of one, no!
43. Cake or pie?
Cake for sure.
What’s your least favourite food?
Mashed potato. My mum was one of those parents who would say I couldn’t leave the dinner table until I’d eaten a certain amount of food. I really hated mashed potato but would have to eat a certain amount before I was allowed to leave, I remember throwing up once. So now I absolutely cannot eat mashed potato and I’m weird with any kind of large potato items, so I don’t eat baked potatoes (I have a couple of times but I need a lot of toppings to get through it) or an particularly large roast potatoes.
45. What’s your favourite condiment?
Ooooh this is a tough one! I love sweet chilli sauce and I have it with basically everything that I can but I also do enjoy mayo, sriracha, bbq sauce, burger sauce, ketchup, mustard. I think I just like condiments to be honest.
46. It’s 4am on a random Saturday. What are you eating?
I am eating air because I am sleeping.
47. If you could teach a college class what would it be called?
‘The random items you need to carry in your bag to survive as an adult’
48. Best animated film?
Any Disney film, it’s impossible to choose.
49. What has a guy said or done to impress you?
It doesn’t really take a lot to impress me, just being sweet. When my boyfriend brings me snacks or drinks without asking.
50. Best thing to do on a first date?
Coffee or drinks depending on the time that you’re going. Eating makes me nervous on a first date and doing things like going for a movie makes it difficult to actually get to know someone (if you talk during a movie at the cinema you are a certain type of evil). I really like going for coffee because you can talk to someone and get to know them without too much pressure (like over dinner), plus if all else fails then you have the option to people watch.
51. Worst thing to do on a first date?
Oh I kind of already answered this! Eating or a movie in my opinion. It’s difficult to get to know someone when your mouth is full of food, and during a movie it’s near impossible.
52. What’s the best pick up line?
I’m under the impression that no good pick up line exists. I don’t know anyone who enjoys pick up lines.
53. Best comic book character?
My favourite is Deadpool but there’s honestly a lot of good ones!
54. Name three things which can always be found in your purse?
My wallet (which I call my purse so it would have been confusing to say that I keep my purse in my purse), my car keys (unless I’m using them to drive), a large amount of receipts which I periodically clear out. Also either 0 or 5 lipsticks, there is no in between.
55. Favourite drink?
Probably diet coke.
56. If you could play a historical character in a movie who would it be?
I’m not really sure that I fit any historical character roles. I’d probably be a maid or something.
57. Kittens or puppies?
58. Favourite sushi roll?
Vegetarian? I don’t mind sushi but it’s not my favourite because I’ve never liked fish.
59. What lipstick do you use?
Honestly a lot! But my favourite lipstick shade ever is Jeffree Star Cosmetics velour liquid lipstick in ‘Gemini’. I somehow lost mine and have been low-key mourning it since because I can’t afford to get a new one. I try to use similar shades but none quite work.
60. What foundation do you use?
I actually don’t use foundation.
61. Blow dry or air dry?
Air dry 90% of the time, I only blow dry if I have somewhere important to go.
62. Who is your fashion icon?
I don’t have one, I just wear what I want to wear.
63. Favourite disney character?
Ariel from The Little Mermaid.
64. What are you doing tomorrow?
Potentially planning a trip for next weekend and getting a Nandos.
65. Movie you laughed hardest through?
These questions are difficult, I have no idea! I tend to watch more series at the moment so for funny series’ I’d say The Good Place, iZombie, or Brooklyn Nine-nine.
66. Movie that made you cry?
Coco! It’s such a beautiful movie, I think I’ve watched it 3 times now.
67. If you could sign a duet with anybody, who would you choose?
I mean I love Ariana Grande but me singing with her would be like her singing with a dog. Her voice is way too amazing for a peasant like me.
68. If your life was a song what would the title be?
‘What is going on, why is everything spinning?’
69. What’s your favourite animal?
Although I, of course, love all animals I have to say that elephants are my favourite animal.
70. Favourite illustrator?
No idea, I don’t follow illustrators as much as I should but I do watch a fair few art YouTubers.
71. Person you’d like to have coffee with?
David Attenborough. What a babe.
72. What country would you like to visit?
Probably Italy again.
73. Best way to decompress?
Lie on the floor and cry. No, I’m joking. Probably with some Netflix, YouTube, or a book. Also I find that writing down the things I need to do the following day helps to get them out of my brain and stops me from worrying about them as much!
