Tag: 50 Questions

Hey! To celebrate my 1 week anniversary woooo!! I thought I would do a question tag so that you could get to know me a little bit better.

What’s your favorite candle scent?
I’m definitely a vanilla girl, or strawberry scents. I did have an amazing cupcake one from Yankee Candle before that was heaven!

What female celebrity do you wish was your sister?
Emma Watson 1000%. She has been my idol since I can remember and I have always wanted to grow up to be like her. If that is a bit cliche then maybe Bonnie Wright (plays Ginny in Harry Potter) she seems like she would be a great sister.

What male celebrity do you wish was your brother?
Probably Rupert Grint. These are all likely to be Harry Potter references as it is what I grew up with and so they feel like my imaginary siblings in a creepy-but-not-stalkerish way…

How old do you think you’ll be when you get married?
I’d like to be quite young, maybe 25? I’m nearly 20 now.

Do you know a hoarder?
Seriously? Yes. My Nana is a hoarder and it breaks my heart as she is so attached to things that it often warps her sense of normality.

Can you do a split?
I wish I could 🙁

How old were you when you learned how to ride a bike?
I’m guessing at 6/7 but I have asked my Dad and will update this later! (Update: He confirmed I was about 7)

How many oceans have you swam in?
I have swam in seas rather than oceans – The North Sea and the Med mainly.

How many countries have you been to?
I just counted… I think it’s 9, or 10?

Is anyone in your family in the army?

What would you name your daughter if you had one?
I have two names that I love. Olivia Lily and Isabelle Bernice.

What would you name your son if you had one?
Samuel George or David Harry. They mainly have family references.

What’s the worst grade you got on a test?
On a real exam? B

What was your favorite TV show when you were a child?
Depends how young! FRIENDS is one I used to love and still adore now.

What did you dress up as on Halloween when you were eight?
How specific! Probably something to do with cats or Harry Potter.

Have you read any of the Harry Potter, Hunger Games or Twilight series?
All of them. You can probably guess that Harry Potter is my favourite??

Would you rather have an American accent or a British accent?
British, I do love the Welsh accent.

Did your mother go to university?
No she didn’t. I am the first in the family to go to university.

Are your grandparents still married?
Yes, on both sides of the family. Although my Nana is recently widowed.

Have you ever taken karate lessons?
My Dad was great at karate when he was younger so he gave me a fewpointers.

Do you know who Kermit the frog is?

What’s the first amusement park you’ve been to?
Wicksteed Park

French or Mandarin

Do you spell the colour as grey or gray?

Is your father bald?
Yep(ish)! I mock him for it constantly

Do you know triplets?

Do you prefer Titanic or The Notebook?
The Notebook. My biggest fear is drowning.

Have you ever had Indian food?
Yes. I am shamefully bad with spice though

What’s the name of your favorite restaurant?
Chiquito, their burgers are to die for.

Have you ever been to Olive Garden?

Do you belong to any warehouse stores (Costco, BJ’s, etc.)?

What would your parents have named you if you were the opposite gender?
I think Edward was one of the names, which I really don’t like for myself! (Update: Dad said it was Elliot.. oops!)

If you have a nickname, what is it?
Ells Bells, Elle S’appelle, Egglia

Who’s your favorite person in the world?
Does my cat count?

Would you rather live in a rural area or in the city?
Just outside a city – in between rural and city life

Can you whistle?
Not very well!

Do you sleep with a nightlight?
No but my boyfriend has to sleep with the fan on. Every. Single. Night. He is a human oven at night and I am always freezing cold!

Do you eat breakfast every morning?

Do you take any pills or medication daily?
Just the one

What medical conditions do you have?
None, I have been very lucky so far in my life (touch wood)

How many times have you been to the hospital?
For myself? Twice. Once when I was bitten by a dog on my face and another when I cut my head open.

Have you ever seen Finding Nemo?
Yes! It was actually the first thing I ever bought for myself.

Where do you buy your jeans?

I would be embarrassed to count how many… Around 30? I hope it isn’t that much!! Minimalist lifestyle where you at????

They can choose whatever religion they most associate with, or none at all. They will be brought up with free choice, I just want them to be happy.

About 8 years old. I had finally stayed up long enough to realise it was my mum who had come in to my room and put presents at the end of my bed!

Why do you have a wordpress blog?
I have wanted to write a blog since I was about 11. I finally took the plunge this year.


I hope you liked this! I thought it would be nice to know a little more about me.

Answer one of the questions for yourself in the comments.. I would love to know more about those who read my blog. That’s if you got far enough to read this!!

    I love vanilla candles, really dislike Emma Watson, wish I had visited as many countries as you (!), and I’m glad I don’t have to share a bedroom with a fan every night as I’m always too cold! Fab to learn a bit more about you :o)

      Vanilla candles are the best!! It’s only in recent years that I’ve taken every opportunity to visit other countries, I didn’t for so long because my family weren’t well off at all. I’m glad you liked t though! 🙂 how come you don’t like Emma Watson!? X

        I guess I’ve just always found her a tad irritating. I’m actually thinking of going on my first proper holiday soon (I’ve been to America many years ago but that was to work for 6 wks so I didn’t really get to see much!) I’ve not been able to for the last 8yrs because of my health issues, but now I want to take the opportunity while I can. You should do a post about some of your best places to visit 🙂

      Ah thank you Lisa! I used to be so unadventurous with tea but now I love fruity ones the most 🙂 I really struggled to find the blueberry one in England though 🙁 but Twinnings do a very similar one, ingredients wise, it’s just not loose tea (if you’re interested!) the Notebook makes me cry every time!!
