Follow for Follows definitely! What is the point of following my blog or others, and making me follow yours if neither of us are going to read them and they’re just going to be a nuisance! Stats aren’t everything – I do this for fun! Not to build an audience of dolls!
I hate rude people. For example, I love Christmas Shopping – but I hate Christmas shoppers! People that push past you or have a go at you for using an umbrella when it’s raining or don’t say thank you when you hold a door…or…so much!
Currently, I am partial to Christmas music. So anything Christmas related! Possibly – right now – Christmas Lights by Coldplay. I don’t have a definitive favourite song because I listen to such a variation of music! It changes weekly!
Twitter! I love Twitter. I used to hate it and not understand it but lately having to use it for work and for fun I’ve really got into it. There are some twats out there, of course, who devote their time to ‘supposedly’ debunking twitter posts – normally my feminist ones! I’ve noticed – but the majority of people are great!
Writing. Whether it be writing a short story, novel, blog post or poetry I like writing when I’m alone. Normally whilst listening to music, drinking unhealthy things and eating chocolate! I also talk to myself…as I’m doing right now!
Chocolate! Without a doubt. I can eat my weight in it, and I probably have. One of my drawers at work has one of those massive Galaxy chocolate bars for those moments when I begin craving chocolate during the day, as I can’t concentrate unless I have some. I’m addicted.
I do! I have a gorgeous tortoiseshell cat called Wendy. We didn’t name her – our neighbours did, as she was previously their cat until we asked to keep her as they were moving away! They had two kids under 5 and a dog so they really didn’t care that much. – I love her to pieces!
Oh God. Cliché: Harry Potter is my favourite fiction book
Non-Fiction: Spectacles by Sue Perkins. When a book makes you laugh, cry and call your mother you know it’s a good book!
I’m a high-street make-up girl, but Babylips are awesome! I think I have all of them now – bar the Pumpkin Spice, because I don’t like the colour – and I think they’re great! The Christmas ones are definitely the best! Pigmented, moisturising and they smell increddy!
It was bound to come out eventually…well…
…When I went to see Harry Potter & the Cursed Child part 2 I was rushing to get the train and as I went down the escalator at Piccadilly Circus I was blocked by three people standing on the left (left is for walking, right is for standing) and I went to shout ‘Oi!’ but it came out like a squeak, a really embarrassing squeak.
Very boringly: Tropicana Orange Juice, no bits.
Gone With the Wind is my ultimate fave, but I also adore The Devil Wears Prada, The Holiday and Freedom Writers. I have so many movies it is unreal!
Drama! I loved Drama. For most people, it was mess-around time but I took it really seriously and I loved it.
Cape Cod, Massachusetts in America. It is full of history, is incredibly beautiful and it’s America! Who wouldn’t!
PC. I’ve never owned a Mac, but I will eventually I think.
Erm…Romance? What is that?
I have so many! But anything Emma Thompson does, from choosing between wine and high heels, pretending to be Jane Austen at the Golden Globes, using a line originally said by Robbie Williams on the Graham Norton show in Bridget Jones’s Baby, is just amazing! I love her.
Oh…probably Gwennan from 20 Something Meltdown. I read her blog religiously as I can find some many things to connect to!
Probably Tara from Cattitude, just because she does not hold back and it’s inspiring and her content is just amazing! I highly suggest you check her out if you don’t already!
I don’t have one favourite but 20 Something Meltdown, Cattitude, Ginevrella, Elleanor Wears, My Little Memoir, Eleaanor May (A lot of bloggers are called Eleanor! Have you noticed!)
Primark. I wish it were somewhere classier but I love it. I can’t walk past it. Followed by Peacocks and Waterstones.
I have recently left Education and I am working! At a specialist recruitment agency that helps people find jobs in Publishing!
I am proud that I have carried on blogging. It was a method of escapism in my first year of University and it hasn’t necessarily grown into platform or a worldwide viral attachment, that was never the aim, but it has helped me in so many things! Meeting new people, discovering my career, developing my career etc! And I am proud that it has continued over 2 and a half years and evolved into two blogs!
