Happy Friday the 13th (cue the dramatic undertones) I know it’s supposed to be unlucky but it’s Friday so I’m focusing on that aspect. For today’s post, I’ve done a little ‘get to know me’ feature. I’ve been blogging for almost 8 months now and I felt that I should give a little insight into who I am and what makes me tick.
Black I can’t really say black can I? I’ll go for Blue. I love cobalt blue, it looks great with a tan!
Biggest Fear: Losing someone I love. I’ve always had an irrational fear of losing the people that mean the most to me. I was one of those nightmare kids who panics over everything! Sharks and flying are a close joint second!
My Most Irrational Fear: Cows. Yes I know it’s an odd thing to be afraid of, hence me acknowledging that it is an irrational fear. They freak me out with their staring and mooing.
My Pet Hate: People looking down on others and being disrespectful. I just don’t think anyone has the right to portray that kind of behaviour, no matter who they are.
I also cannot tolerate cruelty, whether it’s towards people or animals. It is not so much a ‘pet hate’ but actually something that really bothers me.
My Favourite Animal: My dog Belle is my favourite little person in the world. She has such a funny little personality. Aside from Dogs, elephants are my favourite ‘wild’ animal. They are so gentle and wise.
My Education: I have an honours degree in Marketing. I graduated in 2014 and although it was stressful, I loved what I was studying and have some amazing memories from the four years I studied. It is true what they say you can make some life long friends in college.
After our last final year exam
Three Things I believe cannot be bought:
My Favourite Singer: I’m a huge music fan and I like a wide variety of different artists from Pink Flyod to Eminem to Beyonce, but Emeli Sande is the probably the voice that I could listen to all day. Her album ‘Our Version of Events’ is timeless.
My Most Annoying Habit: Being late! I wouldn’t mind I am never late to work, I am however always late to meet my friends and my boyfriend. One of my best friend’s pet hates is when people are late, it’s a wonder she hasn’t killed me. My poor boyfriend is used to it.
My Star Sign: Pisces, I’m a water baby. I was always swimming as a child and find it so therapeutic. Not sure where they got some of the characteristics below, but ‘has the last word’ is me for sure! 😛
The Only Movie to Make Me Cry: There have only ever been two movies that have made me cry; The Lion King and I am Sam. I’m not really a crier when it comes to movies and I don’t like soppy films at all, but these two got me!
Favourite Actress: I’d say Sandra Bullock. I just feel like we would get a long if we met. Realistically it would just be me hugging her while she tries to get away, but l’d like to think we would get along 😉
Favourite Actor: This is a predictable one but it has to be Robert Downey Jr. I just love everything about him. I’m also a huge Johnny Depp fan. I love him for all his weirdness.
The Best Advice I’ve Ever Received: Persistence is key. My parents always told me that if I commit to something I must be persistent as that is the only way I will succeed. They have their moments.
Eating Habits: I could pretty much out eat anyone I’ve ever met, if I allow myself to, I love all types of food and am never full!
My Favourite Hobbies: Aside from eating, I love to shop and travel. I am fashion obsessed and I am a danger to my bank account when I enter a store!
I also love to travel, particularly city breaks. I love experiencing different cultures and believe it makes you a more rounded person over all. I am fortunate enough to have seen some amazing cities such as Prague, Edinburgh Amsterdam, New York, Bratislava and I plan to see many more.
Random Fact: I really dislike Valentine’s Day, I think it has become all about money and about popularity. I’ve never had a bad Valentine’s Day but I’m just not a fan. Love should be shown all year round and not confined to one day.
My Family: I am an only child. I am extremely lucky however that I have a very close family and so was never a ‘lonely’ child. I consider my first cousins my siblings and I honestly would be lost without my amazing family.
Beliefs: I don’t believe in luck. I do believe in faith (I think) but when it comes to luck, I think we make our own.
What I’m worst at: I hate saying goodbye to people, if it is only for a few weeks, it makes me really sad. I really can’t deal with long term good byes 😦
My Life: My Family, Close Friends and my Boyfriend are amazing people and I am truly lucky that they make up my life. It’s the little things they do that make me love them all the more.
I need to take more pictures of the people I love as the above doesn’t reflect even nearly everyone!
So that’s a little insight into my life, I was unsure whether to do this post initially but I personally like to know about the author of blogs I read. I hope you enjoyed and are making plans for a wonderful weekend!
