Seeing as I’m a proper newbie here in the blogging world, I thought it maybe a good idea to tell you all a little more about me so you can get know the girl behind the blog a little better. I have been seeing the ‘Get to Know Me’ tag floating around here and there so why not giving myself? Here it goes!
What is your middle name?
My middle name is Elizabeth. I have no idea why my parents gave me that middle name (although I vaguely remember a story about a navy ship?!) but I like it. It flows nicely with my first name and I am happy with it!
What is your favourite colour?
My favourite colour is blue. Any shade of blue! Turquoise, duck egg blue, sky blue but I’m a Cornish girl who loves the beach and nothing beats sea blue!
How tall are you?
Ummmm good question… I’m pretty sure I’m 5’7. (Or something close)
Cats or Dogs?
Dogs 10000%. I live with two cats and don’t dislike them, but my family have always owned dogs and we recently lost our boxer dog to cancer in November. I miss her soooo much and I miss not having a dog around the house. My grandad owns a spaniel and he’s like my little child haha so I spend a lot of my time walking him. Dogs are just so much more loyal and loving than cats!!
Funniest moment in school?
To be honest, I hated school and was never really happy there, so never really had any funny moments! The only remotely funny thing I did at school was write myself notes and forge my mums signature to get out of PE all the time haha!
How many countries have you visited?
So far 3.. France in 2009, Spain in 2010, and most recently me and my boyfriend took a trip to New York in the USA (best trip EVER). However, I have the travel bug so bad and can’t wait to explore more of the world.
Are you in/gone to college?
I have just recently completed my 3 year BA (Hons) degree in Journalism. The last year was tough but I am SO proud of myself for doing it. I’m the first person in my family to go to Uni and get a degree, and I have studied Media for five years now and it’s something I LOVE.
What was your favourite/worst subject in High School?
Favourite was English and Media studies, worst was 100% Maths!! I HATE numbers, and algebra? ewww!!
What is your favourite drink?
I am a HUGE tea belly, I love a good cuppa (earl grey is the one) and I drink it pretty much all the time. But other than that…PROSECCO. I just love love love prosecco. Obviously I don’t have it all the time but when I get the opportunity to, nothing beats a glass of bubbly in my eyes. I am also a very big vanilla latte fan!
What is your favourite animal?
I honestly can’t say I have just one fave animal, I love them all! Horses, Dogs, Leopards, Elephants, Tigers.. I just love all animals!
What is your favourite perfume?
My absolute favourite and signature scent for me is Coco Chanel Mademoiselle. I am never without a bottle and it’s my favourite smell ever!
Tea or Coffee?
TEAAAAA. As I’ve already mentioned, I am SUCH a tea belly. I have about 50 cups a day, Earl Grey in particular. I don’t drink a lot of coffee at all, but I do love a good vanilla latte.
What would you (or have you) name your children?
I am such a broody person and I LOVE babies. I think all the time about what I would call my children one day, and there’s so many names I love. It does change all the time though!
What Sports do you play/Have you played?
When I was in school I loved playing netball and doing athletics but above all I’m a horse rider. I have been riding since I was 6 years old, and my family have owned horses since we were very young. Nothing beats it.
What is your favourite movie?
I watch a lot of movies and I could never decide on just one favourite.. I don’t even have a favourite genre.. I’ll watch pretty much anything!
Are you Single or Taken?
I am very happily taken. I have been with my boyfriend 7 years (yes 7 years..!) next month. He was my first love, my first crush and I met him when I was 14 and he was 16. The rest they say is history.. we’ve been together ever since, and as cheesy as it sounds he literally is best friend and my everything!
Whats your idea of an ideal first date?
I love the outdoors so anything outdoorsy would be my ideal first date. A picnic, even just an evening stroll under the stars.. I don’t think money is important. Some of the most romantic dates can be priceless!
Do you speak any different languages and how well?
I don’t speak any other languages other than English (awful I know!) I would love to learn Spanish though!
Do you have any siblings?
Yes, one sister two years younger than me.
How would you describe your fashion sense?
I don’t have any hahaha!! All over the place. I often buy clothes I love and then chicken out wearing them cos I think I can’t pull them off. One of my goals is to become more stylish.
What are some of your favourite tv shows?
Oh this is so hard, I LOVE tv shows!! Friends is the ultimate one for me. I’ve seen every episode so many times and I am pretty much word perfect. But other faves include, Gossip Girl, Once upon a time, Pretty little liars, One Tree Hill, Keeping up with the Kardashians and sooooo much more!
So that’s it for today’s post! Hope you all enjoy reading a little bit more about me and what I’m like! Why don’t you tell me a little bit more about you?
Thank you for reading and see you next time!
