Hi Pumpkins, happy hump day!
So blogtober was a total and utter fail by any standard like i’m just going to throw that out there because you might have been wondering ‘hey where the hell has she been’ and I totally get that, but next year I pinky promise that I am going to do some serious planning and go into it so much more organised than I was this year, so I am so sorry for that! It just seemed as though one thing after another came up and by the end of it I am just here like… well, that was a fail haha.
So today I thought I would pop up on here and really get to know you guys! My blog isn’t as personal as I would like it to be and I really want you guys to feel like you know me and like we are friends and what better way to do that than to bring out the good ole’ trusty get to know me tag! I feel like these tags are suuuuuper dated and a little cringey but tbh that kind of makes me want to post it even more, so let’s just jump straight on into it!
Are you named after anyone?
I wish I could give you all an interesting story as to why my name has some significance but the reality here is that i’m not named after anyone in particular at all, just me!
When was the last time you cried?
Totally cried half an hour ago in the last episode of Stranger Things 2 (It wasn’t even THAT sad, I just cry at everything).
Do you have kids?
Not at the moment but oh my god I can’t wait until I do because all of my life I have just felt as though I was born to be a mum as lame as that sounds. I don’t plan on having any children anytime soon (helloooo, a baby can’t have a baby!) but when I do think of the future I see myself all settled down running around with like five children.
If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I would like to think so if that’s not too arrogant to admit. However having said that, I am totally aware of how shy I am around people I don’t know so it’d probably take a little time to get those walls down.
Do you use sarcasm a lot?
I’m definitely sarcastic to people that I’m super close with but not overly so with people that are just acquaintances if that makes sense just because I would never want someone to take it the wrong way… unless I’ve had a drink or two, in which case sarcasm is my native language.
What’s the first thing you notice about people?
I always notice eyes first!
What is your eye color?
Speaking of eyes, mine are blue but depending on the lighting they can kind of look a little grey-ish.
Scary movie or happy endings?
Happy endings all the way! Not only am I the biggest sucker for happy endings and a good love story but I am also the biggest p***y known to man I swear! I refuse to go in those cheap and obvious kiddy ghost trains at carnivals, and don’t even get me started on those jump scare movies!
Vanilla, caramel and sweet pea for sure! I know they are the most basic scents but I just love them!
What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
Europe is the furthest away I have been from home. Back in 2015 I packed up my bags with a friend from high school and we did a contiki trip across London, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Germany and a few other spots.
Do you have any special talents?
Jumping to conclusions, being easily offended and it might also be worth noting that my social media detective (stalking) skills have been compared to the likes of the FBI.
Where were you born?
Only in the worlds most livable city, Melbourne!
What are your hobbies?
I actually hate this question because I never know what to say and it always makes me feel so dull! I work out three times a week minimum, blog (even though I have been slack lately) and I hang out with my friends most weeks outside of work. So nothing overly exciting and they are all pretty mundane things but having said that they are all things I enjoy!
Do you have any pets?
I have two mini labradoodles, Tessie and Sooty!Tessie definitely takes after the Labrador as opposed to the poodle in her genes because she has a white shaggy coat that sheds like crazy, whereas Sooty is literally a charcoal grey soot colour hence his name, with tight ringlets all over.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
How tall are you?
171cm so I think that’s like 5ft 7 – not too short and not too tall!
What is your favorite perfume?
Depending on my mood I like Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolph for a fresh day time scent or Decadence by Marc Jacobs for a heavier take control sexy scent!
What would you (or have you) name your children?
I have always, always, always loved the name Grace but I would also like to pay respect to my mum if I ever have a little girl and maybe use April as a middle name but I just dont think Grace April has a good ring to it so I suppose we will see when the time comes. For a boy I really don’t know – I tend to love more simple and traditional names such as James/William/Oliver etc
What Sports do you play/Have you played?
Growing up I played competitive swimming then for a few years in high school I played golf, and now I don’t play a sport in particular regularly but I will hit the tennis courts every once in a while and as I mentioned earlier I also go to gym for personal training multiple times a week!
Who are some of your favorite YouTubers?
This list is going to be never ending haha! Some regular favourites are Zoella, Alfie, Sean Elliot, Patricia Bright, Shanni Grimmond, Michael Finch, Shaanxo, Samantha Maria and recently I have been getting into Tanya Burr and Danielle Mansutti, then of course there are ones that aren’t necessarily similar to those previously mentioned such as Jenna Marbles, Pewdie Pie, Dr. Pimple Popper (omg pls don’t judge haha), Sean Dawson…. and the list goes on.
How many Girlfriends/Boyfriends have you had?
Call me inexperienced but it’s literally just the one, and I wouldn’t change that for the world! My partner and I were high school sweethearts and 5.5 years later are going better than ever.
How would you describe your fashion sense?
I would describe my fashion sense as a mix of basics and a ever so slight preppy touch. My entire wardrobe pretty much comes from either Glassons, ASOS or Esther Boutique! Like this outfit I wore (here) is pretty much my style summed up except I could easily swap the skirt for jeans.
What phone do you have? (iOS v Android?)
iOS. Apple all the way baaby!! I’ve switched between Apple and Samsung a few times over the years but I always end up coming back to Apple and I think i’m pretty committed now!
I hope you guys liked this post and got a little more of an insight into me! Honestly, this blog is just like my little happy place and I would really love to get to know you guys and make some beautiful friends on here, so I tag you! Whoever you are reading this lil’ post on my corner of the internet to do this tag (if you haven’t already) and let me know in the comments below so I can get to know you too!
Sometimes it can suck being so quiet and shy but i feel like this blog gives me a voice and a place to just let myself be me without worrying and getting judged (even though i’m literally sharing everything with the ENTIRE WORLD) but hey, that’s me in a nutshell… a little all over the place 😛
Until next time,
Love, Angela xx.
