Getting To Know Me | Q&A


I've seen lots of people doing Q&A's on their blog and thought it would be a good idea and make for a potentially interesting post, even though I'm not in the slightest bit interesting! I've selected some random questions that I came across online and thought I'd answer so that those who'd like to can get to know me a little better. So, here we go...

1. Are you a morning or night person? 
This is a difficult one because I'm actually both?! Is that even possible?! It always depends on my mood and the time of year. I need a good nights sleep otherwise I'm so grumpy. If I had to choose one, it would be a morning person. I actually prefer getting up earlier because I can get more done in the day and I always feel so much better when I'm being productive.

2. Describe yourself in 5 words.
Nostalgic. Determined. Sentimental. Caring. Optimistic. 

3. Any guilty pleasures? 
I never know what to class as a 'guilty pleasure' but I'm sure I've got loads. Hmmm. Homeware shopping is a biggie. I absolutely LOVE anything homeware and interior related. I could spend all day watching videos or reading blog posts about people decorating their new place etc. Heaven. I'm also guilty of watching YouTube videos in the bath even though I keep telling myself it's meant to be 'relaxing.' I make a playlist on YouTube and before I know it, 2 hours have passed. I'm also guilty of doing a cheeky late night shopping spree every now and then. I really need to start saving!! 

4. Any tattoos or piercings? 
No piercings but I've got 2 tattoos!

5. If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
New Zealand, China, Germany, Amsterdam, Japan, Canada?? Everywhere. I want to go EVERYWHERE.

6. Summer or Winter?
Winter. Winter is here (GAME OF THRONES FANS WHERE YOU AT?!?!) Definitely winter. I really, really don't like summer. I wish I did but I just love the coziness too much. I think it's mainly because I have a skin condition which means I react to even the slightest bit of heat which sucks. Autumn is my favourite time of year overall but I'd choose winter over summer any day!

7. What is your favourite drink?
Tea. Oh my goodness. And not just normal tea but so many different kinds of tea. I'm doing a blog post about my favourite teas later this year so keep your eyes peeled for that. I also love iced teas, lemonade and I'm starting to really enjoy the odd glass of wine, how adventurous. 

8. What's your go to outfit? 
Anything with stripes is great with me. I love stripes and I practically live in them throughout the year. I usually wear a pinafore dress or my fave Topshop Jamie jeans with my Vans or Doc Martens. My absolute go to outfit, rain or shine. I'm also a sucker for oversized sweaters/jumpers, but, who isn't???

9. Favourite blogs?
I've got so many blogs that I absolutely adore. There is something about reading another person's blog that I find so enrapturing. Whether it's because I don't have a clue what I'm doing with my life and I'm desperately seeking something to empathize with or I'm just searching for some entertainment or a distraction, I could easily spend my day reading what someone else has written. I think a person's blog can be so raw, especially if there are some personal stories on there. You're allowing the internet to read your thoughts and share your experiences and that can often be a little daunting, especially if you're like me and you're insecure about your style of writing. I've gone off topic slightly but I'll link some of my favourite blogs down below:

10. Can you cook?
I'd like to think that I can cook. I know it's lazy but I always feel like I haven't got the time to spend ages cooking my favourite meals. I do enjoy it but I definitely have to be inspired and motivated first. I need to start experimenting more, especially since it's nearly been a year since I went pescatarian! One of my favourite things to cook at the moment is a king prawn stir fry with hoisin sauce. It's the most delicious thing in the world and it takes me around 10 minutes to do! Genius. 

13. Are you a tidy or messy person?
Tidy...ish. I'm not a messy person but I can occasionally let things get on top of me if I'm not careful.

13. What are the small things that make your day better?
Tea. Bath. Reading. Netflix. Good food. Great company. Rain. Coziness. Sleeeeeep. 

14. Are you always early or late?
Early. If I am ever late for anything then something has clearly gone very wrong. Honestly, being close to late for something freaks me out so much, yikes.

15. What was the last film you saw?
The last new film that I saw was Legally Blonde. I know, I know. I'm 18 and I've only just seen it. It's a crime. I watched it a few days ago at around two in the morning. It made me laugh out loud and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'll definitely be putting it on again when I'm having a bit of a down day. Plus, Reese Witherspoon is incredible! 

16. Biggest fear?
Losing everyone I love or waking up one day and nobody knowing who I am. That kinda thing.

17. What did you do for your last birthday?
It was my 18th back in March and I had a family get together, went bowling with my friends and I went to see Andrew Scott's Hamlet in London! A pretty great weekend overall! 

18. Do you believe in love at first sight?
Nope. Sorry to be a downer but I think you've got to get to know someone to fall in love with them surely. I know I do anyway. Of course I can look at someone and think they're the most gorgeous person I've ever seen but they could have the personality of a wet sock ya know. I will admit though that I do get attached to people very quickly. So, give it a week and I'm probably already planning on moving in with them. Just kidding... Or am I???

19. Favourite film?
Without a doubt the easiest question I'll ever answer - THE IMITATION GAME. I'm still debating on whether to write a blog post on my favourite films so I won't ramble on too much here. I can't express my love for this film enough. The casting is spot on and the acting is nothing short of outstanding. The cinematography is what dreams are made of and the story broke my heart to smithereens. The film taught me a lot about a very important era in British History, specifically about a man named Alan Turing. It's phenomenal and I'll still be praising it when I'm old.  I also adore the Harry Potter films but I never acknowledge them as being my faves because I watch them like I breathe oxygen, ya know??

20. What was the name of your first pet?
Bambi, after the film. It was my favourite film when I was a kid and my parents surprised me on my birthday once with a rabbit. I can't remember which birthday, I was very young. I'm aware that Bambi is the name of the fawn and the rabbit was called Thumper but I just loved that name. 

Anyway, that's it for now otherwise this post will go on forever. I hope you enjoyed this one. It's a little different and like I said earlier, I'm not an interesting person but if you learned something new about me today then SUCCESS. I hope you're having a lovely day.

Lots of Love,
Meg X
