Questions from Lise

  1. Do you have a saying that you don’t necessarily intend to use but still do
    I guess I say “um” a lot and don’t mean to? It’s not really a saying but it’s the closest thing I can think of… Oh, and I say “It’s like” before explaining something to someone too. And “You know what I mean though” while explaining something to someone…
  2. What would be your ideal living situation?
    I love my current living situation, so something pretty similar to what I have now! Basically living with my partner. I wish we lived in our own mortgaged home though rather than a rented flat, and I wish we lived somewhere warmer or somewhere closer to my family. Other than that it’s pretty perfect!
  3. If you could have any non traditional pet, what would it be?
    I would have… A little baby snake… Or a ferret if that’s counted as being non-traditional… Or an ocelot. Oh, one of them Savannah cats. Or a lizard. Or a serval, or a pig. I’ve genuinely always wanted a pet pig. Honestly I love all animals to bits and I’d be happy to take care of almost any animal if I could!
  4. What would be your dream job? Do you already have it?
    I haven’t had a job for over 5 years! Terrible I know, I know. I’ve been a student since then. That’s no excuse to not work but full-time education does take a lot of work! So I definitely do not already have my dream job. My dream job would be to get paid to do something to do with travel, animals, nature, warm countries and statistics. So like an ecology statistician or something? It wouldn’t even feel like a job – it would be amazing! I don’t know how likely it would ever be though considering I’m getting a degree in Astrophysics and not in Ecology haha! Hopefully I’ll find a way 🙂
  5. What does blogging mean to you?
    Blogging is my outlet. It’s my way to de-stress, to vent… To be free really! I feel entirely free with my blog to literally express myself however I want, which is amazing. I find blogging insanely therapeutic and that’s actually the reason I started my blog – I started it up when I was in a pretty dark time in my life and just felt like creating a blog was the best way I could help myself to feel a bit better. It’s also a nice way to have some public permanence if that makes sense? Like a way for me to “define” myself in a “certain” way? Basically blogging makes me happy!
  6. Do you have any weird holiday traditions?
    Mmm… I always bring pretty much only Lush products with me on holiday, and will usually do a little Lush shop before going on holiday to make sure I have a solid shampoo and some sort of solid body wash and toothpaste etc. We also always search on Happycow to find all the local vegan restaurants, and try to visit the ones that sound the most amazing while in that country. We only really book holidays in affordable European countries… And we always seem to pack in a panic the same morning of our flight! Can’t think of anything specific though. Oh and on the flight, if we have the two outer seats I’ll always sit in the aisle, and if we have the two inner seats I’ll always sit by the window.
  7. Is there a fictional character you would have loved to meet in real life? Which one?
    Not that I can think of? Oh, any Star Trek character for sure.
  8. What are the best and worst purchases you’ve ever made?
    The best purchase is… Paying rent for this flat if that counts? If not then… God there are way too many good purchases!!! Um I’m going to go with Coalface from Lush – not because of how good the product is (although it is decent,) but because of what that purchase lead to. It was the first thing I bought from Lush and opened me up to the happy world of Lush! Worst purchase… Uhh… Once I bought a “vegetarian” samosa that actually ended up being lamb flavour or something and I only knew once I had bitten into it. That was a pretty bad purchase. I’m really frugal so I’ve never wasted a bunch of money on something to only regret it honestly.
  9. Whats the worst screw up you’ve ever had in the kitchen?
    I don’t really cook but I could tell you some kitchen horrors that Richard has conjured up! Oh, I used to toast poppadoms in the toaster and they would always end up as charcoal and setting on fire.
  10. Do you have any “useless” talents? What are they?
    I have really clicky fingers. Like I can click them all at once like most people do, but then I can go and click them all individually aswell. It’s not really a talent, just gross really isn’t it. I’m very talented at stressing out. And I can whistle. Can’t really think of any other useless talents!
  11. Has anyone ever tricked you into believing something and then you discovered it wasn’t true? What was it?
    I’m really gullible so people do this all the time, but they always tell me straight afterwards so I never had to discover the thing wasn’t true. Like people have made me believe that there are exams on a day when there aren’t etc. Only little things though.

My questions:

  1. What would be your favourite place to visit abroad during the Summer?
  2. What is something exciting that you hope to happen this Summer?
  3. What are some activities that you have planned for this Summer?
  4. What is your favourite season and why?
  5. What are some of your go-to outfits for the Summertime?
  6. What is the best holiday you’ve ever been on?
  7. What is your favourite thing about the Summer?
  8. If you had to move to a different country, where would you choose to move to and why?
  9. What are your favourite things to eat and drink during the Summer?
  10. What are some of your favourite Summertime fragrances?
  11. What are some purchases you hope to / need to make before or during this Summer?

I tried my best to make my questions kinda “sunny” and relevant to the title ‘The Sunshine Blogger Award’! I hope some of you enjoy answering them. To anyone who wants to answer my questions and who wants to be nominated – consider yourself nominated! Thanks again Lise, I’ve have fun writing this blog post 🙂

Guilty Pleasures Q&A

Hey guys! I originally found this blog post idea here from Meg over at Mystic Mogwai, and really wanted to give it a go myself! I hope you enjoy 🙂



1.TV Show.
Um, does “Britain’s Darkest Taboos” count? I do feel guilty watching it because of how dark the show is, but I just find it so interesting at the same time, which makes it really hard for me to stop watching!

2. Book.
Um, well I have this awesome book called “Star Trek Vault: 40 Years from the Archives”. It’s like, a really big book that is just absolutely jam packed full of Star Trek facts and information about how the show was made etc… I *might* feel a bit silly or embarrassed reading this in front of other, more “normal” women my age, but… I really love my Star Trek…

3. Song.
Selena Gomez – Fetish. I know what you’re thinking – “Why is that something to feel guilty about? She’s so popular that she’s the most followed person on Instagram!” Yeah, well, that’s exactly the problem. I come from an extremely alternative upbringing, so, listening to Selena is… Well, enjoying her music isn’t an opinion people close to me will share, let’s just say that! I just really like how much that girl feels her emotions, and how her lyrics often reflect that!

4. Band.
Blackpink… Okay, so this is a Korean pop band. I can’t even understand what they are saying. But, these super cute girls have super cute dances and videos to their super cute songs. I mostly like the dance factor – I think that almost every single Korean pop song has a dance that goes with it, and I really enjoy dance so…

5. Purchases.
Ugh, clothes from Primark… I think when you’re just looking out for yourself, you generally feel more “guilty” for purchasing temporary items. I know that I used to feel really bad whenever I’d buy food, drink, beauty products and anything else that could “run out” basically. Now that I live with my partner and we pay for the bills and food costs in proportion to how much income we each have, I generally feel more guilty to buy myself more long lasting items. Any money that goes on those things is less money that I have in my account to go towards those important, temporary things that we need to pay for, if that makes sense? I’ve recently spent a LOT of money (at least, a lot for me) on clothes from Primark – a brand that so many people believe is a waste of money to even spend £1 on! But, I absolutely love what I’ve bought, and really enjoy buying clothes that make me feel really confident – especially at such an affordable price!

6. Activity.
Um, spending all day browsing Youtube videos?

7. Habit.
Smoking… I don’t actually smoke very much at all, and wouldn’t even label myself as a smoker honestly. It isn’t like if you spent 24 hours with me, you’d witness me smoking 10+ cigarettes throughout the day or anything like that. I just sort of have the odd one when I feel like it. It makes me feel bad because I know it makes you age faster and is really unhealthy, and I also feel like a hypocrite for all the times I’ve complained at my partner and my parents for doing it! But, I do really enjoy it – so long as it remains somewhat under control and doesn’t become a full-blown addiction or anything!

8. Movie.
Hahaha, “The Talented Mr Ripley.” It’s such a classic, and really isn’t the type of thing a teen or young adult would be obsessed with. But, I just absolutely love it, and have since I was around 16 years old. Oh haha, “Teeth” and “Perfume” are two other really good ones – but ‘The Talented Mr Ripley” is definitely my favourite. It’s a really weird movie. It’s about a man who pretends to be someone he’s not, and ends up becoming really violent and… I dunno, it’s just crazy. It’s Matt Damon – watching him in movies makes me laugh a lot. Great movie!

9. Game on your phone.
I don’t actually really play games on my phone, but I used to play Pokemon Go quite avidly, and would be completely down to start playing it again so long as my partner does too. I mean, it’s Pokemon, and when you’re out in public you look like a complete loony using your phone to try and catch invisible creatures. I used to love watching Pokemon as a kid, and now that I’m going on 24 it just doesn’t feel quite right for me to be still enjoying it!

10. Website.
Instagram. Why? Well, because I don’t actually use my Instagram, and haven’t even followed anyone on my account I don’t think. I just sort of… Look up old friends, to see what they’re up to… I know, sounds super creepy right? I just find it really interesting to see how much old friends have changed over the years – the type of people who just wouldn’t even speak to me anymore!

The Sunshine Blogger Award

sunshien award.png

Thank you so much to Lise for nominating me! She writes over at Lushtivity 🙂


The rules:

  • Thank the blogger who has nominated you.
  • Answer the 11 questions that the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs and write 11 new questions for them.
  • List the rules and display the logo of sunshine blog award in your post.

 

Questions from Lise:

  1. If you had to describe yourself in four words, what would you choose?
    Neurotic, overthinking, true and sensitive. HOWEVER, upon asking my partner how he would describe me in 4 words, the person that knows me more than anyone else other than myself, he said “Caring, intelligent, chilled and beautiful.” Just goes to show that not everybody sees you how you view yourself!
  2. You’re stranded on an island and can only bring one item, one person and one food item. What and who do you bring, and why?
    Okay, so I assume there won’t be any signal on this island but just at the slight chance that there would be, I’d have to say I’d bring a phone. So I could call someone to help me – and also to occupy myself while on the island. I’m going to have to be a bit boring with this one, and say that I’d bring my partner. I feel safest and happiest when I’m with him 🙂 As for food, I’d being a whole lot of kale. It’s extremely nutrient dense and I feel it is the most likely food item that would prevent us from dying…
  3. You have the chance to go back in time to change one major world event. What would you change?
    Eh, I’m not so great with the history of the world honestly and I’m not the type of person that would go changing history if I could. The butterfly effect of such changes could just make the present a whole lot worse! Assuming it wouldn’t make anything worse though, maybe the holocaust? I really don’t know!
  4. Why did you start blogging? Do you feel different about it now?
    I started blogging to make all the billions of disorganized thoughts in my head, organised and “real”. I just wanted to have my thoughts presented in a more solid place than just inside my mind, and to have a place to feel free to express myself fully and truly. I don’t feel any differently about it now! I don’ t think my intentions will ever change 🙂
  5. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
    Well, Storm is my name (and is also just a pretty cool world to have in the title of a blog, in my opinion,) and my blog is like a window into my perspective of the universe I suppose. Hence, “Storm’s Universe.”
  6. What is your current favorite song?
    “Oh No!” – Marina and the Diamonds.
  7. If you had to just eat one dish for the rest of your life, what would it be?
    Vegetable fried rice.
  8. What is your biggest flaw?
    My neuroticism…
  9. Do you have a favorite series? Could be anything from books to tv shows.
    Star Trek.
  10. Did you keep your new years resolutions?
    I don’t made new years resolutions – but I do give myself “Birthday Goals.” I have sort of passively tried to achieve them so far.
  11. Do you have any exciting plans for the future?
    Yes, I do! I am going to Mallorca on the 29th for 12 nights 🙂 Very, very excited! Me and my partner shall be staying in a gorgeous little guest house thing with a pool (and a really nice bath.) I shall also be beginning my Astrophysics degree in September which is pretty awesome. Nothing else exciting has a date set for it to occur, but there are many exciting things I hope to happen soon 🙂

Okay guys, I don’t mean to be a party pooper but I’m not going to think up of 11 questions or tag anyone just yet. I have lots to do today but I promise I will get around to it when I have time! I hope you enjoyed reading my post regardless 🙂

The Happiness Tag

Tagged by Lise at Lushtivity!

The rules for this tag
List five things that makes you happy
Share five songs that makes you happy
Tag at least five bloggers that makes you happy

What makes me happy:

  1. RICHARD! Richard is my amazing partner and he makes me more happy than anything else in the world! Especially when he’s happy and smiling 🙂 Nobody knows me as well as he does, and he accepts me for all my negative traits whilst loving me for all my positive ones. He’s genuinely made me a far more kind and better person than I’ve probably ever been before in my life. He’s my ray of sunshine 🙂
  2. My family. All my family members are healthy enough and are alive, and are such lovely people! Sure, we have our little arguments sometimes like anyone does, but we are generally such a close family that those things don’t really matter much to us. My family always have been and always will be there for me, and I for them. They’re the most accepting people I’ve ever met, and I always feel super comfortable when I’m around them! You guys are awesome 🙂
  3. Nature! Lise also listed this as one of the things that makes her most happy, and it’s definitely in my top 5 list too! Animals and nature overall is just… So true to itself, if that makes sense. If an animal ever did hurt another animal, it is usually because of it being their instinct to do so. I don’t know – I feel like humans can be sinister and cruel when they’re easily able not to be, however I think when an animal seems to act “cruel”, it is purely in their nature – if that makes any sense (like when a cat sees a mouse and tries to kill it, it is practicing hunting techniques and would find it extremely hard to avoid doing so!) I don’t think an animal would ever hurt another purely for the sake of doing it / out of pleasure of seeing the animal hurt, whereas some humans do! All nature – plants, scenery, animals, the weather… It all makes me very happy!
  4. Art! All forms – dance, music, paintings, makeup, film… I think creativity and personal expression is such an important part of life. No two pieces of art are exactly the same, or come from exactly the same perspective. I just love the uniqueness of it 😀
  5. Lush. Okay, so this one may seem a bit shallow, but it really does mean a lot to me. I love using Lush products, and they really have improved the health of my body (skin, hair, teeth etc.) I think they’re products are such lovely things to indulge in, and help you to remember that your health comes first! They’re products are just all so lovely, and the entire Lush experience just makes me feel so happy!

Five songs that make me happy:

Now, I found coming up with songs that make me feel happy to be pretty difficult – there are an awful lot of good songs in the world. My solution to this problem was to provide songs that invoke happy thoughts and feelings, in relation to each of the things that make me happy from the list above

1. Buffy and Spike – Let Me Rest In Peace. 
So, this is a track from the musical episode in the series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Me and my partner absolutely love the series, and it was even the first series we watched together, almost 4 years ago. We particularly enjoy this song, and have sung it many a time together.

2. Politicide – Last Mourning.
Okay, so basically, me and my siblings were brought up with parents who were in a Punk band! They’d often go to gigs, and would regularly bring us guys with them (even when we were REALLY little!) I’ve been brought up with their music – them recording their music in the home, listening to their music in the car… There aren’t many of their songs on YouTube, but this is one of the songs that we all listened to a lot! Mostly due to us kids – we absolutely loved it but I don’t think it was a particular favourite of my parents! My mother was the bassist, my father the singer and electric guitar player, and my father’s friend was the drummer of the band 🙂

3. Bach Cello Suite No. 1. 
Okay, so there is something just so beautiful and pure about this piece – which is exactly what I love about nature. It’s so calm and is lovely to just listen to 🙂

4. Los Aldeanos – Los Aldeanos ft Bebe
This one might seem like an odd choice, but I really, really enjoy the creativity put into this song! It was a hard decision because gosh – my favourite artists are all super creative. Bjork, FKA Twigs, Marina and the Diamonds, Sia, Kimbra, Tricky, Lovage, Massive Attack, The Specials… I chose this song though, because… I couldn’t even say. I don’t know. I just think this song has been beautifully put together. I can’t even speak Spanish, so for me it’s more about the sounds the individual’s voices combines with the music that I really appreciate. It just sounds so beautiful, and I love the contrast of singing styles within the song.

5. Nature Sounds
Okay, so this isn’t really a song… Basically, if you type “Nature Sounds” into Youtube, or “Rainforest Sounds,” or anything along those lines, many long recordings of nature sounds will come up. I LOVE LISTENING TO THIS STUFF! It’s so calming, so beautiful, so relaxing, so perfect. I mean, I’d much prefer to just be outside and be in the actual location that the recording was taken, but hey, that’s not always possible. When it isn’t, these tracks will really transport you places! I’ve related these to Lush because of course, Lush is all about nature 🙂


I’ve tagged people before and they didn’t end up writing responses – which is all cool I mean, nobody should feel forced to write anything that they don’t feel like writing! But, since this is the case, I’m not going to be tagging anyone this time. It is time consuming to do, and well, seems pointless! If you want to do this tag, then consider yourself tagged by myself 🙂

If you DO do this tag, please comment below with the post. I’d love to read it!

Harry Potter Obsession.

Hey guys!

I’ve been thinking a lot about good ol’ Harry Potter recently. No, not the character, the story. I think this new obsession has stemmed from noticing an increasing number of Harry Potter themed items in Primark.

I’ve already taken the Pottermore wand, Ilvermorny house and Patronus tests, and have a Chestnut wood wand with a Unicorn Hair core 10 1/4 inch and Brittle flexibility, got into the Pukwudgie Ilvermorny house and have the White Mare patronus.

Now, I wouldn’t want to be reppin’ the wrong house, so of course, I had to take some Harry Potter House tests. Basically, they concluded that I’m a Slytherin. Slytherins are pretty epic, there’s no doubt about that, but they’re not really “me”. If any of you have taken the Pottermore House test recently, you’ll notice that not only is the quiz very different to how it used to be, but the questions also seem rather… Random? I don’t see how a lot of them would even relate to a house, and I honestly have no idea how I came out as a Slytherin. I always used to test as a Hufflepuff, and always play acted being Susan Bones when I’d play Harry Potter with my siblings.

I’m going to do a Harry Potter. My response to the sorting hat saying that I’d do well in Slytherin is “You’re Wrong!” I’m a Hufflepuff. A Slytherin would never even want to be a Hufflepuff. PLUS, if you want to get REALLY intense about the whole thing, I believe in MBTI personality types more strongly than I do the Pottermore sorting hat quiz, and each type generally corresponds to a house. In general:

Gryffindors are: ENTP, ENFP, ESTP and ESFP.

Slytherins are: ENTJ, ESTJ, ISTJ and ISFJ.

Ravenclaws are: INTP, INTJ, INFJ and ISTP.

Hufflepuffs are generally INFP, ENFJ, ISFP and ESFJ types.

See, I’m a bloomin’ Hufflepuff! How could anyone resist their cozy, sunlit common room, full of lively plants? I think if I weren’t a Hufflepuff, I sort-of wouldn’t want to be a Hufflepuff. They’re nothing outstanding, they are just pretty passive and observant, and like to keep the peace. If I were a Slytherin, surely I’d be far too ambitious, leader-oriented, competitive and insensitive to want to be a Hufflepuff? If I were a Gryffindor, surely I’d be too competitive, enjoy being in the spotlight too much and be too much of a leader to want to be a Hufflepuff? If I were a Ravenclaw, wouldn’t I be too academically orientated and too competitive to want to be a Hufflepuff?

I dunno. I’m having a little identity crisis here guys.

I think I’m a Hufflepuff.

I have the Hufflepuff socks to prove it.

From Primark obviously.

Have you taken the Pottermore House test? Which house did you get?! Do you agree with your house? If not, why not take the test real quick and comment below what you get – you just have to quickly make an account, and then answer 10 simple questions to be sorted into a house 🙂 C’mon 90’s kids, where ya’ll at?!?!

– Storm

P.S. I’m a Hufflepuff, not a Slytherin.

The Versatile Blogger Award.

Heya!

I’ve been nominated for this award by Lise at Lushtivity. Thank you lovely!


 

versatile blogger.jpg

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Share 7 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate up to 10 other bloggers of your choice.
  • Link your nominees and let them know of your nomination.


Seven facts about me:

  • I left school when I was 14 years old! I just hated school, so I pestered to be taken out until my mother agreed to it! I was technically home educated, but didn’t hold any official qualifications of any kind until I had finished my year at college when I was 20 years old, after deciding to pursue an education at 19 years. During that year, I took GCSE Mathematics, GCSE English and an Access to Higher Education Diploma in Biological Sciences.
  • My family moved to Bulgaria when I was 15 years old. Around 10 days after moving there, I found a litter of abandoned puppies. I did my best to take care of them, feeding them goat’s milk from a baby bottle. Unfortunately they all died shortly after, apart from one. I named him Pippin, and he was my companion for the 4 years that I was in Bulgaria! I didn’t have other friends while living there, but Pippin kept me company! He died one winter, just a few months before I flew back to the UK.
    pip2
  • While living in Bulgaria, me and my family lived in a mansion! It was an ex-government building of some sort. We lived in a little village in the East of the country. I loved how peaceful and natural my life was there – I miss it very much!

     

  • I live in an adorable flat in North London with my partner! We’ve lived together for pretty much the entire 4 years that we have been together. I first moved into his mother’s home when we were 19 and were just buddies, and we started renting our flat together last September.

    us

  • I have never, ever had a tattoo – but I really want one!
  • I wear glasses, full time, 100%! I actually really can’t see too well without them, and the only reason most of my photos are of me without them on is either because my glasses were broken/lost at the time or because I took them off for the purpose of the photo.
  • My hair has been a lot of different colours in the past. Red, purple, black, burgundy, orangey, bright blonde, blonde with purple, black with purple, natural with a black fringe, magenta… I started dying my hair when I was 12 years old – the first time was just my natural hair with some permanent purple splodges in there (I thought that looked really cool.) 3 years ago I decided to dye and cut my hair one last time, before growing my hair natural. It has been completely natural since around a year ago, after having it dyed for 10 years!

    I really can’t be bothered to nominate anyone honestly. It takes me a while to link up everyone’s sites – if you are reading this and want to have this award and do this tag, go ahead!

Summer Would You Rather Tag.

Tagged by Karalee at Tales of Belle.


Would you rather…

  • Live in a tree house or a castle?
    I would much prefer to live in a tree house! I love nature, so living in the trees in some epic forest sounds pretty awesome. Castles are overrated!
  • Be able to sing beautifully or dance beautifully?
    I’d much prefer to be able to dance beautifully. I absolutely LOVE dance!
  • Ride a horse or a camel?
    I’d love to ride a camel. Something new.
  • Know a fairy or a unicorn?
    I’d way prefer to know a fairy. Again, unicorns are overrated guys! What’s all the hype over unicorns these days?! When I was a kid, I used to pretend to my best friend that I had a secret fairy – my own personal fairy that nobody else knew about. Would be so cool if that came true!
  • Have a backyard that was a huge bounce house or a huge ball pit?
    I’m pretty lazy, so I’m going to go with the ball pit (as long as it wasn’t an insanely deep one obviously.) It sounds fun to just sort of lay back and chill out in a ball pit, under the nice lovely sunshine.
  • Travel or stay home?
    TRAVEL! TRAVEL! TRAVEL! Although I LOVE home, I just HAVE TO see the world! Travel!
  • Be able to fly or be able to breathe under water?
    Fly. Terrified of the sea honestly – I wish I wasn’t, but, sharks. And drowning. And being alone in the middle of the ocean. Many nopes. Also, I’ve always wished I were a bird. Birds are almost limitless in terms of where they can go – at least the ones that fly are. They can fly around, walk on land and many can bop around on the water and eat fish. Lucky things!
  • Know where you’re going or have it be a surprise?
    I don’t really know. I like the idea of things being a surprise, but… I think if it’s something small, I prefer it to be a surprise. If it is something big and important to me, I’d much rather know about it!
  • Be on a boat or on an airplane?
    Boats are fun but scary, airplanes are fun but scary. The upside with planes though is that you get to see all the water AND all the land below you, all in one big go! Pretty amazing!
  • Be able to see in the dark or be able to never get tired?
    Well, I do love my sleep. Seeing in the dark sounds sort of creepy though. I have a fear of the dark (or rather, what might be in the dark,) and I’m not sure I really want to find out what it is that I haven’t been seeing up until now! But, I love my sleep! I’d choose neither – if I had to choose then I’d choose to never get tired – get to be more productive that way!
  • Go on a vacation to the beach or to the mountains?
    Somewhere with mountains and beaches in close proximity 😛 Okay, well I generally would prefer to go to the beach. I love the coast – gives me a sense of freedom 🙂
  • Have picnics in the forest or in the park?
    If there were several people in the forest, then the forest. I’d find it fairly creepy if me and my partner were just sat in the middle of an empty forest. Otherwise, the park!
  • Swim in the ocean or swim in a pool?
    Prefer the ocean, although I am also scared of the ocean. But I still prefer it to a pool!
  • Be a dolphin or a cheetah?
    Cheetah. Fuck living in the sea.
  • Be able to make people laugh or be able to make people trust you?
    Make people laugh. The people who don’t trust me are the people who I don’t really want in my life, so I’d rather be able to make the people who I love and am happy to have in my life, laugh!
  • Be surprised by a present or be able to pick what you get?
    Ooh, tough one. I love surprises, but at the same time, I know what I want! I think I’d prefer to give a general idea of what it is that I want, and then the present-buyer person to pick the specifics. E.g, if I really wanted some new Lush, I’d be happy to give my wishlist to anyone who wanted to give me a gift for my Birthday, and then they pick what it is from the wishlist that they want to get me!
  • Eat popsicles or watermelon?
    Watermelon! Natural wins over artificial sweeteners, colourings, flavourings…
  • Go camping or stay in a hotel?
    Okay, so camping sounds a lot of fun, and is something I did A LOT as a kid. I haven’t been camping anytime recently though, so I’ve sort of become attached to the luxuries of a hotel – a lovely private shower and bathroom, lots of private space… I’m going to say a hotel in general, but, I would love to go camping every now and then!
  • Do art or read?
    Art 🙂
  • Experience an epic waterslide or an epic zip line?
    Ooh, see, I did an epic zip line recently over some chasm thing. It was really cool! I’m going to go ahead and say a waterslide, just because I haven’t done much like it recently (plus it sounds REALLY fun!)

I nominate whoever feels like doing this tag!
