Foray Into Fashion blog tagged me with the 11 Things tag which I gladly obliged too, if I'm being honest I love answering questions because it makes me actually understand myself more as I'd never consider what my answers were to these questions outside of the tag. So here goes...
✓Who would play you in a film of your life? Emma Stone. We don't look alike but our personalities (or what I presume hers is like) are quite alike. She blurts out random stuff, she's kooky and she seems like a bit of a loner. I like her weirdness.
✓If you could live in any soap, which would it be and why? Gosh, I only watch Hollyoaks and there's no way I'd chose to live in that one. Can I think out of the box and opt for a show such as Vampire Diaries - badass women, hot men and some sort of normality...almost.
✓If you could change one trait about yourself which would it be? I wish I was more self-assured or socially confident. Social situations and knowing what to say is tough for me, I tend to babble or my brain goes off on a tangent and I end up coming out with the most random things which lead to some strange looks.
✓What is your day job and would you give it up to write full-time if offered the opportunity? I'm an administrator. I work for an absolutely amazing company and with an amazing bunch of people. If you had asked me this questions a few months back I'd have answered hells yes to leaving work! but now, I don't think anything could tear me away from that job and I wouldn't ever choose to leave. I love writing, but I love that I can do it alongside a stable job with a set routine.
✓What do you not like about blogging? Everything's got very samey-samey. Everyone's vying for free products to review so most blogs are filled with the same biased product reviews, the same type of photography and product lead features. Don't get me wrong I do think they have a huge place in blogging but... I do wish there were more blogs showing personality. I'm not saying my little blog here is perfect because it's absolutely not, but I know I need to make changes and rarely take on PR samples these days to get away from the product lead features. I hope that more blogs decide to cut the strings that tie them to biased opinions and start writing about their real lives, their inner workings and tips and tricks that have got them by.
✓What has been the happiest day of your life so far? I simply can't choose just one because I have three. It would be the day that I got to bring each of my sons home happy and healthy. We had so many problems with the pregnancies and the births and even beyond that bringing each of my babies home was simply amazing.
✓Do you play any sports? I used to play hockey, netball, gymnastics and dance. I so badly wish I could play more sports but these days the only type of exercise I can manage is yoga and daily stretching and to be honest outside of working and family life there's just no time to commit.
✓What is your favourite item of clothing? PJ's. They count don't they?
✓If you wrote a book would it be fact or fiction? Fact. As I get older my imagination slips away. I've always wanted to write a fact book but debate over a few topics as I have multiple interests - spiritual, blogging, health and genetics or a humorous parenting book. One day I'll narrow it down and get to writing but until then I have no idea what topic to opt for.
✓Who is your favourite person from history? The man who helped my Hungarian grandad to escape a camp and eventually make his way to the UK. Alive. I have no idea what his name is or who he was, but I'm grateful all the same.
✓Which colour means the most to you and why? Red. I was never a pink girly-girl growing up and as a young girl I was in awe of the old Hollywood stars who oozed sophistication and grace. Then, I watched Who Killed Roger Rabbit and Jessica Rabbit had me hooked - I wanted to be Jessica Rabbit. From that point, the red dress was my everything and red became my symbol of grace and sophistication, sort of like a grown-up option for pink. It's stuck ever since.
