I was tagged by the lovely Katie in the 73 questions tag and I thought it fit in perfectly with my ‘getting to know me’ vibe I’ve got going on recently!
Thank you, Katie, for thinking of me…so without any further ado…
What is your usual Starbucks order?
What season are we talking? In Summer, I go for a Mango and Passionfruit Cooler…but my new favourite this summer is a Tropical Ice Tea Smoothie thing. It’s lush. In Autumn / Winter, either Gingerbread latte or a good ol’ hot chocolate with the works.
What does your work station look like right now?
I don’t really have a work station for writing blogs or writing uni essays. For Christmas, my parents bought me a laptop lap tray so I could write anywhere in the house – my laptop never leaves the tray!
All-time favourite food?
Pizza or pasta.
Either John Green or Jacqueline Wilson…who eight year old Niamh waited in a three-hour queue to meet.
What do you think of open relationships?
Not for me personally, but each to their own. YOU DO YOU.
What is your favourite video game?
Mario Kart Wii or Crash Bandicoot.
Guilty Pleasure treat?
Ooh, this one is tricky but I have to say a Terry’s Chocolate Orange…always a treat.
Mrs Doubtfire or Matilda.
Any of the Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging series.
Twitter or Instagram?
Insta, I seem to get more interaction on there now I’ve conquered the algorithm.
Desktop or laptop?
Best advice you’ve ever received?
I found a quote on Facebook which might be a bit cheesy but it’s very relatable.
“Be gentle with yourself, you’re doing the best you can.”
What project are you working on right now?
Hmm, I’ve got a few. Obviously, I’ve got my blog, but I’m starting to focus on getting my YouTube channel up and running in time for Center Parcs with Josh!
It changes every day…so today’s colour is blush.
Did you get good grades at school?
Primary school, yes. Secondary school…I could have tried harder. College, I got the highest for a BTec, but university is the biggest challenge of them all.
Since planning and organising Josh’s 21st party, I’ve been wanting to run my own event planning business, but if that fails – I’d love to take my blog full time and use my degree to the fullest potential.
Played any sports?
Not really. I was told I could be part of the netball team at secondary school but I didn’t think much about it.
Do you have a degree?
This year is my final year, eek!
What is your favourite kind of blog post to do?
I’ve loved writing Josh and I’s date night ones. I have a few more planned and I canny wait.

I’ve been reading about these Neutrogena Lip Soothers which work wonders and look really good but you can only get them on Amazon at the moment.
I think I was Hufflepuff.

Everything I have planned with Josh and the chance to graduate with a high grade!

Christmaaaaaaas and New Year.
What fictional character do you relate to the most?
Georgia Nicolson from Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging.
Do you like surprises?
Depends. I want to be around people I trust when I receive them because I cry at pretty much anything so I don’t want to embarrass myself in front of strangers.
What’s the biggest surprise you’ve ever had?
When I got my phone for Christmas a couple of years back.
What’s the surprise that made you cry?
When I got my AirPods for my 21st…I had had a lovely weekend celebrating and the emotions just got to me!
