As my first “official” post here at my new domain, I decided to take part in the Twenty Things About Me meme. So here goes:
How tall are you?
I’m about 5’6. Maybe even 5’6 and a half if you want to get technical about it.
Do you have a hidden talent and if so, what?
A hidden talent… I’m really good at getting jobs. If I get an interview, then I’ll likely get the position. I think that’s because I make a really good confident/bubbly/passionate first impression. Which I suppose isn’t that hidden because it’s my personality… *gives up on this question*
What is your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
I always immediately exit blogs that have MASSIVE text and MASSIVE headers. They must have larger screens than I do. I like blogs that are narrow and compact.
What is your biggest non-blog-related pet peeve?
People who make decisions about things without experiencing it for themselves. Especially in regards to travel. People will be like, oh such-and-such went there and didn’t like it, so I’m not going. I’m always like, that doesn’t mean you won’t like it.
What’s your favorite song?
I’m really loving Feeding Line by Boy and Bear. It has been my favourite song for a while.
What’s your favorite Etsy shop?
Wow… I haven’t bought anything from Etsy in ages. I went on the other day looking for baby shower stuff for my cousin, but ended up creating my own designs. I think a lot of stuff on Etsy is really over priced.
What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?
Reading. Blogging. Cruising my dashboard on Tumblr. Spending time with friends, family and my boyfriend. Catching up on my TV shows. If the weather is nice, heading to the beach.
What’s your favorite junk food?
Red Bull and chocolate. They’re my big vices. I love a can of Red Bull.
Do you have a pet or pets?
I have a Maltese shiatsu named Charlie. I love him 🙂 The photo below is him when he was a puppy, but he’s 8 now! I also have a “couple’s pet” with my boyfriend, a Princess Parrot named Khaleesi.
What are your number one favorite non-fiction and fiction books?
Fiction – Harry Potter. I love that book series more than any other. Love, love, love. As for non-fiction… I’m not a big non-fiction reader. The closest I come is biographies.
What’s your favorite beauty product?
I use the Ultraceuticals range. Love.
When were you last embarrassed and what happened?
In all honesty… I don’t get embarrassed much. I figure I’m 27… the time for embarrassment is over 🙂
If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Red Bull! Obviously.
What’s your favorite movie?
I’m a big fan of Inception. I thought that movie was brilliant.
What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist prep etc?
I don’t think my school had those sort of stereotypes. Australia is a little different in our stereotypes in general though because we don’t play inter-school sport, or have proms, so the majority of those “types” are already cut. Our types were more so the “brains” or “deros”. I wasn’t really either. I did a lot of dance, so I guess I was in the performance/arts crew.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
I’ve traveled a lot, and I’m really happy to call myself an Australian. I think we’ve got it damn good here. But if I had to move, I’d probably jump across the pond to New Zealand.
PC or Mac?
Mac. All the way. I bought my first MAC laptop back in 2009 and I’d never go back. I use a PC at work, but at home, I’m a MAC fan.
Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boyfriend/girlfriend?
I’ve been with my boyfriend for about 2.5 years. He brings me flowers from time to time. Probably my favourite gesture from him was heating up my heat pack and putting it on my back when I fell down the stairs and hurt my tail bone 🙂 It’s the little things sometimes.
As a general rule, I have a lady-crush on Megan Fox and Scarlet Johansson.
Which blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?
I’m a bit of a fan of Jamie from The Perpetual Page Turner
This was fun. Feel free to link to your own answers in the comments!
