Get to know me better


Hi Everyone and happy March! Continuing on with my March blog-a-thon of posts, today I have a bit of a different one for you - one that is actually about myself. I know I tend to keep my personal and private life just that, personal and private...but I thought it was about time we delved a little deeper for anyone who may be interested in knowing a little more about me. I found a list of silly random questions on Pinterest (of course, where else would I be!) and thought I would give it a go.

1. Share 5 interesting facts about yourself: 
- I worked as an 'Elf' at the Harrods Christmas Grotto when I was on my gap year. It was exhausting.
- I studied Criminology at the University of Northampton.
- I have 4 tattoos, but would love to get more!
- I still do not know how to drive! I have recently taken up driving lessons again and fingers cross 2018 is my year!
- My ultimate dream is to write a TV drama series which is nominated for a National Television Award.

2. What is your current relationship status?
I am newly Engaged! *squeals*

3. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years time I would like to be Married, have a couple of little ones running around and be completely settled in a career which satisfied both my ambition and creativity sides.

4. What is your zodiac sign and do you feel it suits your personality?
I am actually a Scorpio, and it think it suits me perfectly! Focused, Brave and Ambitious but Stubborn, jealous and I can definitely have a sting in my tail if I need to!

5. Where is next on your wish to travel to list?
I absolutely love to travel, it is something me and my partner Paul try to do as often as we can. We have a few trips already planned for 2018 but on my list of places still to visit are Canada, New Zealand and Fiji. I am also aching to return to New York soon, I definitely left a piece of my heart there on my last visit.



6. What is your favourite; Song, TV Show, Movie, Food, Drink?
Song - Cannonball - Damian Rice
TV Show - Grey's Anatomy
Movie - Me before You
Food - Salmon and Green Beans!
Drink - Smart Water (I don't know what it is about the stuff, I love it!)

7. What is something you are proud of yourself for?
Being brave. With reference to many aspects in my life. If there is any advice I would give someone it is to simply be brave. I assure you, you will be able to apply it to a number of situations you are going through in life.

8. Are there any hobbies you would like to take up?
A hobby I have always wanted to take up, I have actually just recently done so! But it is a secret that you will find out soon ;) I'd also love to take up yoga more seriously and regularly as well as another form of exercise or fitness class!

9. If you could spend 48 hours with someone (dead or living) who would it be and what would you do?
I would have my Nanny and 2 Granddad's come together, and I would tell them how much I love, appreciate and respect them. To have just 48 hours again with them would be so precious.

10. Is there a quote you like to live by?
"Stone taught me to fly!" - A line from my favourite song and one of my tattoos! To me this means that it is the hardships in life which teach and enable us to live our best life and be the greatest version of ourselves. It is essentially a more poetic way of saying "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."

11. What did you want to be when you were younger?
Growing up I had my heart set on becoming a Forensic Psychologist. It was the reason I stuck out my awful sixth form college studying Psychology and why I went to University to study Criminology. Unfortunately I just did not enjoy being in the "educational" environment and never finished my studies to gain the qualifications I required. I moved my career down a different road yet my interest in the area is still very much active!

12. Which celebrity would you love to meet?
Damian Rice. I think he is an incredible musician and writer.

13. If money was no object, what would you do?
See the world! - I feel a lot of people would answer this question in the same way but travelling truly makes me feel so alive, and I can not wait to go on more adventures!

14. What piece of advice would you give to 16 year old you?
Stop letting other people have so much control over your happiness. They are irrelevant and 10 years down the line you won't even remember their names.

15. What do you wish you did more/less of?
"Do more things in life that set your soul on fire" - This is the sentiment I am living to in 2018.
I would like to worry and overthink less (like more human beings).

This was just a fun and small introduction post for you all but if you have any burning questions, to feel free to leave them in the comments section below!
