Let’s play 20 questions
As the name suggests, this blog focuses on a little bit of everything. And having just written about periods – which I think gives a little more of an insight into myself- I’ve decided to answer 20 questions to give you a little bit of a look behind the scenes of Everything in Between.
1. Are you named after anyone?
Not that I know of! I didn’t use to like my name but it’s grown on me over the years.
2. When was the last time you cried?
Yesterday (Sunday 15th October) – I’m a bit of a softie. I was getting ill last night and my head was pounding, I hadn’t slept all night and it just overwhelmed me.
3. Why did you start a blog?
It had been sitting in the back of my mind for a long time but I finally had the support and encouragement I needed to hit the publish button. I love to write so just wanted a place to get my thoughts down and to make a hobby (as well as a career) out of something that I enjoy where I control the content 100%.
4. Favourite perfume?
I love the ‘Black Opium’ by Yves Saint Laurent but right now I’m wearing Aura Mugler and I’m completely obsessed with it.
5. Favourite weekend activity?
Spending time with loved ones, smiling and laughing and making memories.
6. Favourite Christmas movie?
I know there are so many people out there who will hate me for this, but ‘Die Hard’. I watch it every year.
7. What is your current job?
Content Manager at a digital marketing agency. Working with words all day = my dream.
8. Who inspires you the most?
My mum and my other half. They are both strong, independent and loving people, that are happy to lift you up whenever you need it.
9. What is your favourite colour?
It tends to change on a daily basis. Right now it’s October so it’s warm yellows, oranges, red, browns and autumn colours. I can’t pick just one.
10. How tall are you?
5’5″ on a good day. I’m rather short. Much to the delight of my 6’3″ other half.
11. Do you have any special talents?
I’m not really sure because there are probably a few stupid ones I have up my sleeve but one I’m proud of is being able to whistle with my fingers. Yeah, nothing special.
12. Do you have any birthmarks?
I actually do. I have a large pink/red ‘strawberry’ birthmark on the back of my neck. As I’ve grown it seems to have migrated further into my hair but if you search around for it just under my hair at the nape of my neck you will find it.
I also have a cluster of freckles on my forehead on the left hand side that a lot of people think is a bruise. I’m clumsy so don’t blame them.
13. Do you have any tattoos?
I have four. Two tiny ones on either wrist – Norse runes. An arrow on my right foot. A pair of angel wings on the back of my neck. I plan on getting lots more.
Just kidding, mum.
14. What is your favourite book?
‘The Night Circus’ by Erin Morgenstern. I also love ‘The Great Gatsby’ by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
15. What is your favourite ice cream?
I love ice cream. But if I HAD to pick one it’d probably be either Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Brownie or Half Baked. Omnomnom.
16. Do you own a car?
I do. I recently purchased my first new car – a 67 reg Suzuki Swift in dark (mineral) grey. I call her Taylor. Because it’s a Swift. Get it?
17. Favourite food?
Pizza. Pizza pizza pizza pizza.
18. Tea or coffee?
Tea, but green tea all the way. Add lemon and I’ll be your best friend.
19. Do you collect anything?
My other half would probably say candles. And he would be right.
20. One goal in life
I actually have 30 goals that I want to accomplish before I turn 30. But if I had to just pick one goal it would be to be happy.
