Get to know me Tag

Hiya lovelies!

I'm a very busy bee these days and I doubt this gets better with uni starting one week from now. I'm excited though because this means it's time to shop loads of cute stationery :)

Reading through blogs the other day I came across an interesting tag on Georgina's lovely blog, and decided to answer some get to know me questions myself. We all know I'm really nosey and enjoy reading this kind of posts on other blogs so I hope you'll enjoy mine as well!

1. Are you named after anyone?

Not really, my mum knew a girl with the same name and liked it but I wasn't named after her particularly.

2. When was the last time you cried?

Actually I'm crying all the time but like I said I've been busy recently, so didn't really have time to cry haha

3. Do you have kids?


4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

Well I'm not sure, I obviously would like myself if that makes any sense but it takes a lot to gain my trust. Would love to chatter about nail polish and makeup all day long though aha

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?

I wouldn't say I use it a lot but I sure do use it when talking to specific persons if you know what I mean!

6. Will you ever Bungee Jump?

Certainly not. I always said I wanted to but then went on a drop tower someday, from that moment on that was over and done with! Nearly shat my pants.

7. What's your favourite cereal?

Guess I like every kind of cereal, can't really think of a favourite. Anything sweet really! 

8. What's the first thing you notice about people?

I think it's their clothes, followed by their face and hair obviously. Different from most people I don't pay attention to hands&nails or shoes right away.

9. What is your eye colour?

Dark brown

10. Scary movie or happy endings?

Definitely happy endings! Watched far too many scary movies when I was younger but this resulted in me sleeping with the door open and the lights on so I don't watch any scary movies anymore haha

11. Favorite smells?

That's a tough one. I like fruity, sweet and floral scents alike. Also adore the smell after a summer rain [ooh cheesy] and the smell of roses.

12. Summer or winter?

Both! Love summer as I'm always freezing and it's just nice to not have to put on 3468379 layers of clothing and wearing bright nail polish shades but then again it's also great to cuddle up in front of the fire and wear chunky knitted scarfs which I rarely do in summer. 

13. Computer or television?

Computer of course! I don't really watch TV and I can watch my favourite programmes such as My Name is Earl and Desperate Housewives online anyway. Plus you can't blog from your TV :)

14. What's the furthest you've ever been from home?

I've never left the continent and haven't gotten around that much but I guess Italy has to be the furthest from home.

15. Do you have any special talents?

Does it count as a talent to be 22 and not being able to cook because all you ever paid attention to was painting your nails and go shopping? Additionaly I can offer a talent for forgetting important dates like deadlines at uni so I usually write my term papers the night before, sobbing every now and then and moaning about my own stupidity. Wow I seem like a very untalented person.

16. Where were you born?

Western Germany

17. What are your hobbies?

Blogging, shopping, meeting family&friends, painting my nails, taking random pictures, food. Yes I lead a sad life but I actually enjoy it most of the time!

18. Do you have any pets?

I did own a few guinea pigs, some of them happened to have a really short life thanks to my siblings who accidentally stepped on them or dropped them from our bunk bed when we were little. Sad childhood memories. We also had fishies, a rabbit [he was more of a cat actually, he would hiss anytime I tried to stroke him!] and gerbils.

19. Favorite movie?

Hmm I'm usually way too impatient to watch a movie to the end but I love Guy Ritchie's movies and funny films like Superbad, Jonah Hill&Michael Cera are some hilarious fellas.

20. Do you have any siblings?

I have three sisters and two brothers and they're all younger than me! I like to stress we're nothing like the families on trash TV though, no one dropped out of school and we don't burn car tyres in winter because the landlord turned the heating off due to unpaid accounts [I'm into stereotypes you see]

21. What do you want to be when you grow up? 

Always hated that question as I never ever had a clue! I'm studying Social Work and I think I'm quite content with it but then again I change my mind all the time and I don't know where I'll end up to be honest.

22. Is there anything in life you would like to accomplish that you haven't yet?

Well I definitely want to get around more and see different countries such as Africa, America and so on. I'd also love to end up with a job I love and have a family of my own :)

23. One secret you don't mind sharing with us?
Can't even think of a secret I wouldn't share!

24. How do you like to relax? 
I must sound like a weirdo but being in my room by myself and painting my nails is somwhat relaxing to me.

25. What was your last major purchase?
I went ceerazy in the Models Own sale they had last week!

26. What can you cook very well?
Frozen pizza.

27. What is your favourite holiday and why?
Probably christmas because I love all the decorations and fairy lights and huge christmas trees. Also love spending time with my family as everyone is always so kind and forgiving at that time of the year.

28. What is one tv show that you don't really like?
I don't like most tv shows, I'm really picky when it comes to watching tv!

29. If given a million pounds, what is the first thing you would do with it?

I would love to donate one part to a relief organisiation and save up the other part for my parents and my own retirement but knowing me I'd splurge on high end cosmetics first and see what's left! Does this make me a bad person? I'm sure I wouldn't spend everything on treating myself though so don't you judge me.

30. What kind of people do you like being around?
People who I can be myself around without them making me feel like I shouldn't.

31. What is your one embarrassing moment?
Can't think of one, which doesn't mean I don't make a fool of myself from time to time! I just keep forgetting, I'm probably the most oblivious person on earth.

32. What one makeup mistake did you used to make?
I was about 14 when I caked on loads and loads of pressed powder instead of just using foundation! The powder was way too light and made me look like a ghost but I didn't realise until about two years later.

33. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
Tough one! I loooove food! Guess I'd pick Walkers. Or pasta. Or pizza.. oh how I wish I loved healthy food!

34. Have you got any tattoos? If not, would you like one?
If it wasn't for my mum I'd be tattoed from top to bottom today but luckily I don't have a single one! Like I said, I constantly change my mind so I'm better off without any tattoos.

35. What is your one staple clothing item?
Perfectly fitted jeans.

36. Do you have any bad habits?
Unfortunately yes, I have loads of bad habits. One would be that I tend to get aggressive [I don't hit people don't you worry!] when I feel stressed or anxious and I hate that! Always feel so bad afterwards.

37. If you were to be reincarnated into an animal, what would you be and why?
Please don't hate me for my answer but I'd rather not be reincarnated into an animal, as don't really like any animals.

38. Do you think money is happiness?
I do think money can bring happiness but it's not the key to being happy, if you're not content with your life, money alone wouldn't make it any better!

39. Are you OCD about anything?
I'm suffering from depressions so yes, there are quite a few things I'm OCD about but I'm not ready yet to write a post or something about it, although I'm aware it might help people and I admire those who talk openly about these issues.

40. Have you ever been abroad?
Ye I've been to Italy, Denmark, Holland

41. Do you speak any foreign languages?
I'm pretty good at Italian and know a few scraps of Spanish and Dutch

42. What is your favourite colour of nail polish?
Anything glittery really :)

43. If you could be anyone for a day who would you be and why?

Probably a celeb like Nicole Richie, I'd love to know what it is like to lead her life! Going to glamorous events, doing interviews and go shopping without worrying to break the bank. I must seem so superficial but a girl can dream right!

44. How tall/short are you?
Im really tall which is a bummer as I'd love to wear pretty glittery heels all the time. But I'm 5 ft 7 so I'd probably look stupid.

45. If you were to dye your hair, what colour would it be?
I'm not too adventurous with my hair so I'd probably try the ombre look. 

46. What are you wearing right now? 
A pale pink lace top with a beaded collar, a plain white shirt underneath and some light brown/mud coloured skinnies

47. Best present you ever receieved?
I've received loads of generous and beautiful presents, the latest present I absolutely loved was the stippling brush my bestie got me for my birthday in may and the holiday my boyfriend booked for us :)

48. Are you religious?
Yes, I'm catholic, don't really go to church that often but I pray a lot and go to confession etc.

49. Cheapest makeup product you own?
I don't think there even exists anything cheaper than the MUA lipsticks which I own 4 different shades of currently.

50. Last thing you ate?
I was tempted to write vegetables of course but I just scoffed half a can of Pringles.

51. How are you sitting/standing right now?
Sitting on the edge of my bed which is really uncomfortable but I feel lazy when lying in bed all day [I know this doesn't make a difference shush!]

52. Who else is in the room as you are answering this?
My boyfriend

53. Who are you closer to, Mum or Dad?
My mum obviously, I think that's because we're both female but since I moved out of my parents house I'm really close to my dad as well!

54.What do you think is the coolest accent?
I don't really know, I love foreign languages in general! :)
