The Bloggers Tag

Hi guys! My awesome friend Jacqueline recently tagged me in a Q&A post. Please check her blog out if you haven’t done so. We just became friends but she’s one of the realest bloggers I’ve encountered. She speaks her mind and doesn’t care what others think, which is very admirable. If you enjoy my posts, you’ll also enjoy hers because her topics include beauty, planning, and food! So please stop by her blog and say hello. Now onto the Bloggers Tag!

The Bloggers Tag

Question 1: How tall are you?
I’m 4’11” AND a half. Yes, I’m tiny and I hear it almost every day.

Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent?
Um… I draw and paint but not lately.

Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
When people follow you and you follow back but they unfollow you just to gain followers. It doesn’t really happen on here but I’ve seen it happen a lot on Bloglovin’ and Twitter.

Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?
When people eat loudly… like slurping their soup, smacking their lips, constantly chewing with their mouth open. It drives me insane!

Question 5: What’s your favourite song?
There are way too many to list so I’ll just give you my current favorite song. I already included it in my February 2017 favorites but it’s Kygo’s latest song featuring Selena Gomez, “It Ain’t Me.”

Question 6: What is your favourite social media website?
Probably Twitter because that’s where I spend most of my time.

Question 7: What is your favourite way to spend free time when you’re alone?
Just relaxing and being more mindful.

Question 8: What is your favourite junk food?
I’m a sucker for sour gummy candy. Especially Sour Patch Kids!! Plus, I could always go for a burger.

Question 9: Do you have a pet/pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
I have two dogs — a lab mix named Benji and a Pomeranian named Coco. They’re my fur babies!

Question 10: What is your number one favourite non-fiction and fiction book?
I’m currently reading Cupcake Brown’s memoir, A Piece of Cake, which is about how she overcame her drug addiction and became a lawyer. It’s easily becoming one of my favorites. As for non-fiction, I’d definitely say the Harry Potter series. Don’t make me choose a specific book because I love all of them.

Question 11: What is your favourite beauty product/tool?
Probably my beautyblender because it blends my makeup so well.

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
I’m not easily embarrassed but awhile ago, I went out for drinks with a guy. I stepped away to use the restroom but it was dark… and I confidently walked into the men’s restroom. I was so confused to see a urinal and a guy washing his hands. And he was just as shocked to see me. When I was done doing my business, I walked back and laughed about it.

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Matcha green tea latte with hazelnut! 😍

Question 14: What is your favourite movie?
This might be shocking but I love The Departed. It’s got a stellar cast, iconic director, and great plot. What more could you ask for? I watch it whenever it’s on TV. I never get tired of it!

Question 15: What was your favourite lesson in school and why?
Umm, I really enjoyed French class. I took it all four years of high school. And that’s why there’s a French word in my blog name. But if you asked me to say something in French now, I’d only be able to say the basics.

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live?
Probably somewhere that resembles paradise, like Santorini.

Question 17: PC or Mac?
I own a MacBook and an iPhone so I think this one is pretty obvious… But I use a PC at work so I’m constantly switching between both operating systems.

Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?
It’s not really romantic but I asked for water. He grabbed a water bottle and opened it for me before handing it to me. It was a small, simple gesture. He probably didn’t even think twice about it and I could have easily opened it myself. But it gave me the assurance that I was being taken care of.

Question 19: Favourite celebrity?
Does Harry Styles count? 😻

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want to be friends with?
Jacqueline and Chrissey! We’re friends online but I wished they lived closer so we could hang out in person.

Question 21: Who is your biggest inspiration?
Definitely my mom. She’s done so much for me and I’m still learning to appreciate her more each and every day.

Question 22: What is your favourite blog to read?
There are way too many to name!!

Question 23: What is your favourite high street shop?
Nasty Gal! But they recently filed for bankruptcy so we’ll soon see the fate of the boutique…

Question 24: Are you in education or do you work?
Currently working full-time but eventually going back for my Masters… I decided to wait another year before applying.

Question 25: What is one thing you are proud of?
My journey through self-love and learning to be more confident!

I’m not going to tag anyone in this but please feel free to do this if you’d like!

    1. Right? I really want to get back into drawing and painting but I just don’t have the time and it can get messy! But it’s definitely therapeutic.

      OMG I died when I walked out of that restroom. I went into the women’s restroom and texted my sister about it right away hahahaha.

      Aww, I’m glad you enjoyed reading this! I know I consciously keep certain parts of my life separate from my blog but I DO like to share some experiences that readers can relate to.

      I hope you’re having a great week!

  2. Aww totally the sweetest thing someone has said about me in the blogging world! So it’s safe to assume we are a part of each other’s little blog tribe? And I cannot believe I forgot about the damn beauty blender as a beauty must have. Have you tried the silicone one yet? I’m about to cut my invisible bra chicken cutlet and give it a go. Lol. Enjoyed reading this darling! And PS. Hell yes to harry styles. ❤️
