The 'Get To Know Me' Tag

Its been a while since I've done anything based around getting to know me, or about general facts etc and since its coming to the end of another year I figured it was probablies time to do another one. Also the inspiration for this post came from the Lovely Talisa from who mentioned me in her blog post, so I thought I would give it a little whirl myself. 

What is your middle name?

My Middle Name is May. I used to absolutely hate my middle name when I was younger, but I actually don't mind it any more. 

What was your favourite subject at school?

My favourite subject at school was probably Art. I love being creative and using my imagination to create things. This is probablies the reason why I love my blog so much, because now I don't go to school any more and therefore no longer have art in my life.. this is now my way of being creative and I love it. 

What is your favourite drink? 

Literally cannot go wrong with a cup of tea with milk and one sugar. That's definitely my favourite non alcoholic drink. However, alcoholic would probably be a bellini of some kind. Love peach ones in particular. YUM. 

What is your favourite song at the moment? 

It makes me very very sad that it's all come to a pause for a while, but I definitely think my favourite song is One Direction - Perfect. I really do love this song and always find myself singing along to it! Gutted that I am seriously falling in love with them all when they are no longer going to be appearing on TV screens as a group. Come back one d!!! :(

What would you choose as your last meal? 

Well, if it was this time last week I would have had a very different answer to this question but since going to London and trying various different foods I have officially got a new favourite restaurant. So, last Sunday evening we went for food in this incredible Asian restaurant called Gilgamesh in Camden, and I have never been in a more stunning place in my life. Just to top it all off I tasted the most incredible food too. So now, I'd probablies say that I would have this meal as my last if I had a choice. It included Salmon sashimi for starters, Seafood Jungle Curry followed by Passion fruit crème brulee with Mango sorbet. WOW my mouth is watering even thinking about it!! 

What was the last thing you bought? 

The last thing I bought was some goodies from Coconut Lane which is a little online store of including home pieces and fashion accessories. I will soon be doing a blog post including these but if you want to check out their website its.. and don't forget to use my discount code 'laurenloves20' at the checkout to get 20% off your order!!

Favourite Book of all time? 

Years ago I read the book called 'The Lovely Bones' it was absolutely amazing. Definitely worth a read. 

Favourite Colour?

Usually I would say purple, but at the moment I have an obsession with champagne colours. I think that champagne is a beautiful colour which in terms of fashion.. pieces in this shade would be perfect for all seasons. Glittery for winter and shimmery and golden for summer! 

Do you have any pets?

Yes, and I love them far too much! 1 Dog, Tyke - he is a springer/cocker spaniel cross and I love him more than words can explain. 1 Cat, Bertie and 3 guinea pigs, Ronaldo, Fernando and George (My little brothers choice of names, not my own). 

Favourite Perfume?

Well, at the moment its definitely Chance by Chanel but I have recently discovered Tom Ford Velvet Orchid which I am getting for christmas, and I have got a feeling that one may take over any of my Chanel perfumes for being my favourite! Very excited!! 

Favourite Celebration?

Well, it definitely has to be Christmas. I was very nearly not going to be spending christmas with my family this year.. and obviously in my career this is to be expected.. but I was extremely disappointed at the prospect of this. Anyway, I am now going home for it which I could not be more excited for as I love family at home.. we always get dressed up, have lots of drinks, its still very magical because of my little brother, we eat incredible food and me and my mum always get nicely dressed up for the occasion. I just love it!!

What is your relationship status?

I've been with my boyfriend Simon now for 7 years. We've had our ups and downs but were very solid now.. and have lived together for nearly 2 years. 

What is your favourite country? 

Ooo this is tough one actually because I just love everywhere I go. I have not been to America yet but going in 2016 so I would imagine that this time next year I will say that will be my favourite. I do love Germany though.. I love Berlin and the culture of Germany and its always a very interesting place to visit. So up until now probablies there :). 

Do you speak any other language?

We all want to say yes, because we did languages at school.. but no I wouldn't say I speak any other languages. Obviously I know a few words in French, Spanish and German but it definitely would not get me very far, ha! 

How many siblings do you have?

I have 3 brothers, who are all younger than me. James who is 21, Jake who is 14 and Matthew who is 8. I'm the only girl and that's the exact way I like it. 

What is your favourite shop?

Of all time, I would say Topshop.. but as a novelty I would definitely say Selfridges. I just LOVE wandering around and admiring their incredible goodies. One day Lauren, One day. 

Favourite Restaurant?

Favourite chain would definitely have to be Wagamamas, But as I have mentioned above it would be Gilgamesh in Camden, London because the food, drinks, setting, staff, atmosphere and everything about it was just out of this world. RECOMMEND. 

When was the last time you cried? 

I actually am the most soppy person in the world, and would cry if I saw a video of a guinea pig eating a carrot on facebook. So goodness knows when the last time was. Although the last time I genuinely cried over something I was upset about was probablies a week or so ago but this very rarely happens anymore. 

Who are your favourite Bloggers? 

Right well this is a pretty easy question actually. I have a few, but my all time favourite is followed by Its Little Lauren, Talisa Tells, That Pommie Girl, Kate La Vie and Robowecop

Favourite Film?

This is very difficult considering I am such a TV/Film buff. I love everything Disney and I don't think I could choose one which was my favourite over the others. I love the film Clueless also. I also love the Hunger Games Films. 

Favourite TV show?

I am definitely one of these people who goes through phases of being hooked on different TV series on Netflix etc, so I shall just give you a list of some of my top TV series' or shows etc. I love Desperate Housewives, PLL, Prison Break, Game of Thrones, The apprentice, Gossip Girl .. and I am also really loving I'm a celebrity at the moment!

PC or Mac?

Well, at the moment I just have a little laptop which does all the jobs I need it to do and works amazingly for me. At times I use Simons Mac which I do love using.. at some point I would love to treat myself to a macbook though but I definitely need to save a few pennies before that can happen. 

What phone do you have?

I have the iPhone 6 Plus which I LOVE. Its in gold. Its huge, I know. But I absolutely Love it!!

How tall are you?

I am only 5 ft 2/3, which to me I really don't mind. However, its not great when you have a baby face and get asked for ID wherever you go. However, it means that I can wear whatever heels I want when I'm with Simon because hes 5 foot 8/9 and all heels take me to being about an inch smaller than him anyway! 

Can you cook?

I literally used to burn everything I made, but obviously going to uni and things meant I had to attempt to try and teach myself something.. otherwise I would just have to starve or live off a bread and butter diet. So this last year or so I have been much more adventurous with the things I cook, and I have even started branching into baking which is usually very much out of my comfort zone. Now, I have to say as well as not being a bad cook at all.. my food actually always tastes REALLY good also. 

So there you go, I hope you all enjoyed getting to know me a little bit more and have learnt a fact or 2 that you may have not already known. I love doing these tag posts every now and then!
