13 Personal Questions Tag

Hello everybody!
So I haven't had a lot of time to take any photos recently for blog posts but I really wanted to get a post up today so I thought, what can I post on my blog easily but is still worth reading? 
And I found this tag (I'm not sure who created it, sorry) and I thought this would be a fabulous opportunity for you all to get to know be better (even though I'm pretty boring).
So here are my answers to the '13 Personal Questions Tag'.

1. What do you order at Starbucks?
Well, I once went to California and in America they do these drinks called Cotton Candy Frappes so if I had my way I would 100% order that every time but here in the U.K they don't do that frappe *cry* so I've had to come up with a substitute, I order: a vanilla frappe (no coffee) with 3/4 pumps of strawberry. It's not exactly the same but it's similar and it's soo yummy... and totally instagrammable!

2. What's one thing in your closet you can't live without?
I find this question so hard to answer but if I had to say one thing then I would say any of my collared shirts. They're kind of my signature style because I wear them throughout all seasons. I love wearing them in summer because they're light and breezy and in winter with a cute sweatshirt over the top.

3. What's one thing most people don't know about you?
I'm an introvert. I do enjoy spending time with my friends but I don't mind being by myself, I kind of like it!

4. What's one thing you want to do before you die?
I don't know, hmm. I just want to be happy in the life I choose to lead, have a heathy and happy family and maybe move to America but other than that I'm not sure!

5. What's one food you can't live without?
This is such a hard question to answer! I love so many foods!

6. What's one quote you live by?
'If you want to SOAR, you must learn how to F.L.Y; first love yourself' - Audrey Hepburn

7. What's one thing you like and dislike about the YouTube community?
I love how you can meet so many amazing, lovely people through YouTube but I really dislike how many self promo comments I get saying something like 'Sub for sub?' or 'Just found your channel and subbed! Sub back?' because I if you leave a comment asking for me to check out your channel then I won't, however if you leave me a lovely comment saying what you liked about my video and what I could improve on then most likely I WILL check out your channel.

8. What's your number one song on your iPod/iPhone?
Well I tend to use Spotify so all my songs on my iPhone are relatively old (2013) so I would say probably something like Starships by Nicki Minaj *starts singing Starships*.

9. What kind of style would you describe yourself as having?
Very cute, girly, colourful and... collared (lol).

10. Favourite number?

11. Two hobbies?
I love to act so I take acting classes every Monday,  I also go windsurfing every Saturday morning and (yes, I know this is three hobbies but I have a few hobbies so I couldn't just choose two) I go singing every Thursday.

12. Two pet peeves?
Bad eating habits for sure! Just close your mouth! Haha! And also when people force humour. Being funny comes naturally and usually if you just be yourself you will find you become very funny, but if you force it then usually it's really not that funny.

13. Guilty pleasure?
Reality TV shows! From Love Island to Made In Chelsea to Keeping Up With The Kardashians! 

So I know this wasn't the best post but hopefully it was interesting and helped you get to know me a little bit better! I hope so anyway! Also I don't really have anyone to tag so I tag anyone who wants to do the '13 Personal Questions Tag' and I hope you have fun doing it!

Happiness || Motivational Monday #1

So I have been reading Sprinkle of Glitter's blog for quite some time and have always loved it when she did her 'Motivational Monday' blog posts every so often because as we all know Mondays are not the nicest of days (who am I kidding, they're horrible!)
After reading these for a while I have realised that there is nothing better than starting off a day with a positive mind and with the help of these blog posts I have approached Mondays with a positive mindset rather than the sluggish usual approach to a Monday that always fills me with dread.
So, I thought that I would start my own Motivational Monday series on my blog that I will post most Mondays preferably in the morning (unlike this post which is being posted much too late due to my unorganisation).
*Disclaimer - I do not take credit for this idea I know this was started by Sprinkle of Glitter, I know I'm being a copycat, haha.

So sit down, grab a cold, refreshing drink (because it's summer baby, wooo) and get ready to be motivated!
So you may have noticed (the very small amount of wonderful people who have decided to read my blog) that I haven't posted in over two months *smacks the back of hand. 
Why? To be honest I'm not totally sure, maybe I thought I was being silly thinking that little old me could actually maintain a blog. I shouldn't have thought that though because sure it's not as fancy and exciting as other blogs but it's mine and I do put effort in to my blog and it makes me happy.
So that got me thinking of the perfect subject to talk about to start off my Motivational Monday series... happiness. 
So I turned to the true god of motivation... Pinterest.

This is one of my favourite quotes and it totally puts across what I'm trying to say. Does blogging make me happy? Yes, it does so why did I stop? If anything I should blog more because it does make me happy.
Don't give up on anything that makes you happy even if it scares you because in the long run you will feel great once it's accomplished.

So even though this was a very short start to my Motivational Monday series, I do hope that it was effective!
