Lifestyle: A Little Bit About Me

Well hello there...
It's been a while since I've done a good ol' tag post, so when I spotted this post on
That Pale Girl's blog, (check her out by the way, she's a babe) I thought it would be a great way for you lovelies to find out a bit more about me! I love reading posts, where you can get to know the person behind the blog. 

Let's get started...
This or that...

Red or white wine? 
I'm really not a wine-drinker, I'm more of a Malibu kinda gal. But gun to my head, I'd have to opt for a fizzy white.

City or countryside? 
I've always lived in the countryside, I love the peace and quiet, the winding roads and beautiful scenery. Don't get me wrong I love the city, so many shops, bars and fun days out, but I'll always be a country girl at heart.

Cats or dogs? 
Dogs - they are so adorable with their little fuzzy faces. 

Sweet or savoury? 
Before my weight loss, I was a savoury girl all the way - give me all the cheese/bread/crisps. But after losing weight, I've found myself craving chocolate, sweeties and cake - all in moderation of course. 

Dresses or Jeans? 
I love both, but in this freezing cold weather, I've been living in my jeans.
I can't wait for Spring, to start wearing dresses again!

Heels or flats? 
Flats. I have heels, I love heels, but my feet hate them!

Beyoncé or Taylor Swift? 
Taylor Swift. Her songs are just so catchy, I've had 1989 on repeat.

Tea or coffee? 
Tea! I'm a huge tea drinker, I'm actually drinking a mug right now whilst typing this post. Green tea is my favourite. 

Divergent or The Hunger Games?
I've not seen either. Oops. I do want to give The Hunger Games a watch though.

Blog posts or Youtube? 
Blog posts. I'm a blogger, I can type with ease, but staring into a camera and actually speaking, terrifies me. 

Skincare or Makeup?
That's a tough one. I'm torn as I have particularly bad skin at the moment, so I've been relying on my skincare products, but I just love make up as you can be so creative.

Morning or Night?
Night. I'm a bit of a night owl. I prefer to workout in the evening, watch TV shows, and I find that I can be much more productive at night. 

Pizza or burgers?
Another tough one. I'll have to say pizza, I love a good margherita or ham and pineapple, thin crust is the best.

Books or magazines? 
I love both, but I read magazines more often than books. I find them lighter, and easier to just flick through. 

Facebook or Twitter? 
Twitter. I rarely go on Facebook any more.

Summer or Winter? 
I've always been a winter girl, cold evenings, snow, Christmas, wrapping up all snug, living in my pyjamas with a hot water bottle. 
 But, I do love a bit of sunshine, I can't wait for summer!

Your favourite...

Exeter. I love the shopping and it's a great day out.

I heart... series, by Lindsey Kelk.

I love The Wedding Singer, Despicable Me and anything Denzel Washington.

TV Show? 
Big Bang Theory, The Walking Dead and Bones.

Loverdose by Diesel.

Skincare item? 
La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo.

Currently it's Desert Rose from Elizabeth Arden.

Rimmel Match Perfection.

Greek yoghurt with granola and berries, or sweet potato fries.

Anything with chocolate ganache, or champagne truffles!

Place to eat? 
A local American restaurant called Custom House or Prezzo, if I'm feeling pizza.

Alcoholic drink? 
On the rare occasions I do drink, it's got to be Malibu.

Non-alcoholic drink? 
Water or green tea.

Actor and Actress? 
Denzel Washington, and either Kate Hudson or Rachel McAdams.


Sublime and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

What does the future hold for you?
My future is still a huge surprise... and I like it that way!
But, I would love to move out with my boyfriend, in to a place of our own, go on lots of lovely holidays, (Paris, Rome, New York and Mexico are all on the list) to continue to be healthy, spend time with my favourite people, and most importantly of all, to be happy!
