Get To Know Me Tag!

Oh my god guys, I am just having the time of my life!
I'm completely joking, everything is a bit of a mess right now, but who cares! I have to stay positive and do things that make me happy, such as blogging. I know I say I need to blog more a lot but in all honestly, I think I've finally found the motivation to get things moving again. 

So, I thought I'd return to blogging with something a bit simple, a get to know me tag! I absolutely love reading these and I don't think I've ever done one before. They are one of my favourite things to read so I may as well give it a go at writing them too! 

So, here goes...

1. What is your middle name?
My middle name is Emma, not as terrible as some people's names, but i'm not that keen on it.

2. What was your favourite subject at school?
That's a toughie, I liked a lot of different subjects for different reasons. I was always excited for History, mostly because I had the most incredible teacher (shoutout to Miss Johnson!), and I also really liked drama. I always wanted to be an actress when I was younger. At college my favourite subject was definitely media!

3. What is your favourite drink?.
I never keep a favourite for long, sometimes nothing will be acceptable except a good cup of tea in an old chipped mug, sometimes all I need in a creamy hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows, and sometimes I'm scrambling up 60p in order to buy a diet coke from the shop. I recently (I say recently, more like months ago) went to Hubbox with my mum and had the most incredible chocolate maltshake, I think I could have that everyday.

4. What is your favourite song at the moment?
Twenty One Pilots - Stressed Out, Lady Leshurr - Queen's Speech 4, Sam Smith - Stay With Me, Sigala - Sweet Lovin', oh lord there's too many! 

5. What is your favourite food?
Love me a good old packet of magic stars.

6. What is the last thing you bought?
Depends on what sort of things you're after, today I signed up to Apple Music, yesterday I bought a cinema ticket, some popcorn, some magic stars and some mozzarella sticks (so not worth it) and the day before that I bought some socks for moisturising your feet overnight and a facemask from Lush. Ooh, and a starbucks.

7. Favourite book of all time?
The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han. I love this book so much, as soon as I finished it I ordered the sequel and read it in one night. It's the perfect easy read to make you feel summery and ugh, its just my fave.

8. Favourite colour?
I like every colour. 

9. Do you have any pets?
I have two gorgeous furry friends. Jack, my 13 year old springer spaniel lives with my dad. He's very hyper and ridiculous and we love him to absolute pieces. Unfortunately he has cancer and is quite old, so not as energetic as he once was. I also have a 7 month old kitten called Kiisu who is just the most elegant, gorgeous little girl ever. She loves to lick my nose and chew the corner of my phone a lot.

10. Favourite perfume?
Sweetheart by Ghost. My brother got it for me for my birthday years ago, and I've since repurchased it.

11. Favourite holiday?
I always loved visiting Brighton. I think it's a gorgeous, diverse city which basically has everything I'd ever need. I can't wait to go back and visit one day.

12. Are you married?
I don't think my parents would be overly happy with me getting married at 17 years old! 

13. Have you ever been out of the country?
I have indeed! I went on a school trip to Paris when I was 13, and a school trip to Poland when I was 16. I've also been to Scotland and Wales, but they don't count.

14. Do you speak any other languages?
I don't, but I have been using Duolingo to learn French and Dutch! If you haven't heard of Duolingo, it's a fantastic app, completely free, that teaches you different languages. You can set goals of how much you want to learn per day. I'm 2% fluent in French, apparently.

15. How many siblings do you have?
I have two awful smelly big brothers who I love with every fibre of my being. Chris is the oldest, he's 24 this year, and Jamie has not long turned 21! We're all growing up and becoming grumpy adults, fun times. We all live together with my mum and we're a happy little bunch. I also have a step brother and two step sisters.

16. What is your favourite shop?
Boots and Superdrug are awesome, and I quite like Accessorize too.

17. Favourite restaurant?
The Shire, it's a lovely pub/restaurant that does the most incredible carvery ever. We used to go multiple times a year for everyone's birthday.

18. When was the last time you cried?
Yesterday! I wasn't having the brightest of days, unfortunately.

19. Favourite blog?
I love absolutely loads of blogs, but the ones I always come back to are Zoella, Milk Bubble Tea, Ruby Red Roses and Emily Bashforth. All such gorgeous, wonderful girls!

20. Favourite movie?
I've been watching If I Stay a lot over the past few months, it's my comfort movie for when I'm feeling down. Of course, Marley and Me will forever be a staple favourite, and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. However, I have a feeling that I'm really going to enjoy How To Be Single when I go to see it.

21. Favourite TV shows?
I've watched every episode of Friends at least 30 times. That's not even an exaggeration. I'm completely up to date with Pretty Little Liars, and I absolutely LOVED Desperate Housewives. It's so scandalous. 

22. PC or Mac?
Maaaaac. I have a laptop at the moment but I really want to save up for a Mac, I just think they're much better and easier to use. Plus, they're pretty.

23. What phone do you have?
I have a space grey iPhone 6.

24.How tall are you?
I am 5'7. Kind of average for a girl I suppose. I'm taller than my mum!

25.Can you cook?
I won't starve, let's just say that. I enjoy baking more than cooking, so I don't tend to cook much.

So that's it! I'd love to know your answers to the questions so make sure you comment or let me know if you write a post like this!
I'll see you all very soon!
