If you remember my post about relaunching the blog, you’ll know I’m making a few changes around here to reflect my personal growth. I’ve refined my style and direction but will still remain personal. Which made me think I should probably re-introduce myself so you guys can get to know the person behind the blog a bit better. I’ve seen those ‘get to know me’ tags and thought it would be fun to do a little one of my own. Because if you’re as nosey as I am, you’ll love finding out the answers to these random questions. I’ll save the boring facts for the about me section. So here goes:
Are you named after anyone?
I’m told that I’m named after a famous actress called Cyd Shareese. But I think my mum just liked the name (I also have three middle names so she really wasn’t holding back).
When was the last time you cried?
Last week when my son brought me to tears, seriously he’s going through THE ASSHOLE PHASE.
If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I actually think this is a really important question we all need to ask ourselves from time to time. I always aspire to be someone that I WOULD want to be friends with. And to be the blogger I’d want to follow. There’s no persons opinion I value more than my own, and if I’m proud of myself and want to be around me, then that’s all that matters.
Do you use sarcasm a lot?
I don’t really and I always lack common sense when other people use sarcasm, it takes me a minute to get it haha.
What’s the first thing you notice about people?
The warmth behind their eyes and their smile. I love to see people smile, I also have a thing for teeth, I admire someone who has nice teeth. Is that weird?!
Scary movie or happy endings?
Happy endings of course! I’m such a hopeless romantic.
Vanilla, rose anything that is sweet and floral. Oh and cinnamon!
What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
This is an odd question because I feel like home isn’t always a destination but a feeling… Sometimes being with family or certain people make you feel at home. BUT I’d say ‘technically’ Jamaica is the furthest I’ve been from ‘home’ being in England.
Do you have any special talents?
Yes overthinking, being stubborn and blocking my own blessings.
Where were you born?
What are your hobbies?
Aside from blogging, I love getting creative. Whether it’s making something, painting, baking, knitting. Does drinking gin count as a hobby?
What do you want to be when you grow up?
Financialy stable. International florist owner. A better mother. Somebody’s wife.
How many countries have you been to?
What was your favorite/worst subject in School?
I absolutely hated History (I blame my dickhead teacher who told me off in front of the whole class). My favourite was drama, art and English, even though I wasn’t always very good at them.
What is your Favorite drink?
Anything that has elderflower in it. To be honest I could split this whole question into categories; tea, alcohol (then I would split that into wine | gin | cocktails etc), fizzy drinks, squash, cordials. The list is honestly endless.
What would you (or have you) named your children?
My son is called Corben. But I love the names Wendy and Luna for a girl. When I was little I wanted a little girl called Maya. And for boys I’ve always like Leo.
Who are some of your favorite YouTubers?
Honestly I don’t really make time to watch many vlogs/vloggers. But I did write a post earlier this year on my current favourite bloggers, which still remains the same.
How many Boyfriends have you had?
Omg I don’t even want to re-live all the mistakes I’ve made. Let’s skip that one.
Favourite memory from childhood?
I don’t remember that much from my childhood! One of my earliest memories is when I went camping, I vividly remember the bluebless in the woods and poking an ants nest with sticks. Also primary school was a pretty decent time of my life haha.
How would you describe your fashion sense?
Basic? LOL I just like shopping in charity shops. I mostly wear neutral colours but have been adding a lot more pink into my wardrobe this year. I’d say I can be quite girly… I don’t own any trainers. I get a lot of inspiration from Pinterest, I have four different boards dedicated to fashion throughout the seasons.
Tell us one of your bad habits!
I always get ingrown hairs on my knee, and it’s a really bad habit that whenever I have bare legs and am sat down. I sit and pick them out with my nails. *cringe*
I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know me a little better! Why not copy and paste these questions and answer them on your blog? Tweet me if you do as I’d love to have a read.
