The Blogger Tag

I was planning on posting a Q&A to introduce myself to my new followers and because I love reading (and writing) personal posts. I saw the Blogger Tag on A Touch of Belle – and I’m pretty sure that Gemma’s blog was one of the first I followed on Bloglovin years ago now. So let’s get on with the tag!

Question 1: How tall are you?
I’m 5 foot 7, which I love – I’m from a tall family, which I love and I’m glad this is a characteristic that Alfie will inherit

Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent if so what?
Sounds strange, but I don’t think I have one

Question 3: What is your biggest blog related pet peeve?
OMG, proofing content, without a doubt. In all of my jobs to date, proofing and subediting has been involved so the last thing I want to do is spend time and energy in the evening proofing blog posts. When my dad was around, he often proofed my posts for me. Or let me know of mistakes when they were live

Question 4: What is your biggest non blog related pet peeve?
It used to be lateness, but once you’ve had a baby, the chances are, lateness will be at the back of your mind. Now I dislike people who expect something for nothing, or feel like you owe them something

Question 5: What is your favourite song?
I don’t have a favourite, although Oasis’ Live Forever is up there. I like songs that remind me of a certain time or place, particularly ones that remind me of my dad

Question 6: What is your favourite social media site?
I honestly don’t have one. I don’t update my Instagram grid enough to say that. And my Twitter use gradually reduces every month

Question 7: What is your favourite way to spend your time when you are alone?
I don’t get alone time and once I’ve put Alfie to bed; my time is spent tidying up, cooking and eating dinner and washing up. But once in a while, I love a bath, to read a book or write a post
Question 8: What's your favourite junk food?
Sweets or biscuits – I have such a sweet tooth

Question 9: Do you have any pets, if so what kind and what are their names?
I don’t have pets and never have done

Question 10: What are your favourite fiction and non-fiction? 
Fiction, I’m easy, anything chick-lit or what I’d class as a ‘holiday read’. Non-fiction, I like (auto) biographies

Question 11: What is your favourite beauty product or tool? 
I can’t be without foundation and my fave is Diorskin Star, but my favourite tool is my trusty GHDs which have kept my hair straight and smooth for over a decade

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed and what happened? 
I honestly don’t remember, it must have been a while ago

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage besides water for the rest of your life what would it be? 
I would probably only need water, to be honest. But maybe coffee during the week and prosecco at the weekend

Question 14: What's your favourite movie?
Again, I don’t have a favourite, but Drive is up there – a brilliant soundtrack and Ryan Gosling... need I say more

Question 15: What was your favourite lesson in school and why? 
I guess I’d have to say English. I studied English Language at GCSE and A-Level and my degree was in English Language & Communication

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why? 
Spain! I love the food, the people, the culture, way of life and weather... literally everything! Or obviously Essex because it’s my home county and I will probably miss it forever

Question 17: PC or Mac? 
Not a choice, but I use a laptop
Question 18: Last romantic gesture from your other half/close friend? 
Some may call it romantic; others will say it’s a requirement, but a bouquet of red roses on Valentine’s Day

Question 19: Favourite Celebrity?
I don’t have a favourite – I’m not really one for celeb culture

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want to be friends with? 
I’m lucky enough to have made friends through blogging. There’s no blogger community or events in MK and I really miss those opportunities in Essex and the people I’ve spoken to on social or met. I wish I had gone to more events and maybe even met up with some of the girls on social
Question 21: Who is your biggest inspiration?
My parents. Growing up, it was my dad for his work ethic and achievements – and we’re also very similar. It’s now my mum because she’s selfless, the strongest person I know and continues to provide for and look after us – all admirable traits

Question 22: What is your favourite blog to read?
I have become awful at reading blogs, largely because I don’t have the time. I love bloggers that take their blog or vlog to Instagram, whether it be with a perfectly updated grid or a series of Insta-stories. In terms of content, I love Foodie for Thought and Dainty Dress Diaries

Question 23: What is your favourite high street shop? 
Again, not a single favourite but I’ll always love New Look. Mango and Zara are usually my go-to shops for everyday and work-wear

Question 24: Are you in education or do you work?
I work. After maternity leave and job searching, I’m a Content Consultant, which I love

Question 25: One thing you are proud of? 
It used to be graduating, but nothing will ever top giving birth, especially having been told I’d never have children. It may have been exhausting but it’s so rewarding and the best thing
