Sunshine Blogger Award

It’s Friday and the weekend is about to start for me and I’m pretty sure that yours is starting soon too!

Sunshine Blogger Award

Here are my answers to Sarah’s questions!

1. What’s your favourite mythical creature?

Probably a dragon to be honest with you. I know I love anything unicorn and mermaid themed, but meh I don’t actually care all that much about them as mythical creatures… Although mermaids are pretty cool in all fairness. I mean, think about it. What would you do all day if you were living the life that Ariel has? I know I’d probably be swimming around and such. πŸ˜›

2. Do you collect anything? If so what?

I collect so much stuff! My most prized possessions are my Japanese things such as Pokemon plushies, Persona 5 plushies and especially my Good Smile Company Nendoroid’s. Me and Dane have been collecting these for about 4 years now and we love it. We have them in our living room on display and they’re our pride and joy.

3. If you could dress up as anything for Halloween (with no cost restrictions in mind), what would you dress as?

Erm… I’d probably dress up as some sort of anime or gaming character. I’d definitely do a female version of Joker from Persona 5! I’d want to get some monies together so that Dane or my best friend Gabriella could also dress up with me! Oh man, that would be pretty cool to be honest with you. πŸ˜€ I’d also love to dress up as Lady Deadpool, but I definitely don’t have the body for that…

4. What are your top 5 songs right now?

Erm…

Myth & Roid – Voracity.

Hoobastank – The Reason.

Evanescence – Lithium.

Panic! At The Disco –Β But It’s Better If You Do.

Daft Punk – Around The World.

5. Share a fond memory from your childhood, and why it’s meaningful to you πŸ™‚

I remember when I was younger and I first got into gaming, I used to always be so excited to come home after school to play games on my PlayStation and Game Boy Color! At the time I was always playing games such as Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow as well as loads of random games on my PlayStation. I just always looked forward to it to be honest and it really was a joy to come home and play those games. I remember one summer I was just so stoked to get home from work to play Spider-Man. I loved the first Spider-Man game and played it daily.

6. What’s your favourite species of bird? (hahaha I know this is super random, but I was just having a conversation about birds and was compelled to ask! :D)

Oh wow this is such a random question, but I do love those types. Erm favourite bird though? It has to be a robin. They’re so gorgeous and adorable, you can never go wrong! I’ve always heard all sorts ofΒ  stories behind them, one being if you see one it means you’ll have a good day and luck and another being that if you see a robin it means a loved one who has passed is watching over you. Both meanings are lovely and mean a lot to me whenever I see robins now. Sometimes in the mornings at work I’ll see them.

7. Imagine you could be a witch or wizard for a day, what spell would you most like to cast first? Tell us why.

Mmm I don’t know to be honest with you as I’m not a massive wizard/witch fan. I’d probably want to learn how to create a dog for myself that can be left on its own all day! That would be the dream to be honest with you.

8. Do you have a go-to Autumnal make up product?

Probably just my deep berry pink shades, such as Rebel by MAC (review here) and Gum Drop Plushies by Lime Crime (review here) as I just feel like they work really well with mustard shades, as well as other darker shades too.

9. Spooky or Spoopy? (or both like me!)?

Spooky for sure. Spoopy just makes me think of Snoopy to be honest with you.

10. What’s something that you love the texture of? (Apologies for the random questions guys, I’m not very good at this!)

I don’t know what it’s called but it’s like shearling but it’s super soft and light to the touch. I’ve owned a couple of hoodies now with it inside and it’s just so soft and fluffy. I just love brushing my hand over it as it feels like a cloud. I’m definitely a fan of soft feeling clothing, there’s just something so comforting and relaxing about it. There is nothing worse than stroking a garment that you think is going to be lovely and it feels like sandpaper!

11. Are you a fan of sci-fi? If so, do you have a favourite movie and/or TV show?

I used to love sci-fi growing up, but I feel as the years have gone by I’ve not been as much of a fan of it as I used to be. I have always been a massive Star Wars fan after my brother and dad got me into it from a young age. I Googled popular sci-fi movies and TV shows and quite a lot of stuff came up as recommendations. Black Mirror was one for TV show and this is definitely one of my favourites TV series! Alongside that there were TV shows such as Stranger Things and American Horror Story, which are another two TV series that I love.

Aww I loved all of the questions that Sarah asked all 11 of us to answer, but now it’s my turn to come up with 11 questions! πŸ˜›

1. What is the most and less used app on your phone?

2. What is something you’re really looking forward to?

3. What is your favourite flower?

4. Do you like memes? If so which is your favourite?

5. You’re being executed for a crime you committed. What is your last meal? P.S. Sorry for the morbid sort of question! πŸ˜›

6. If you could change your name, what would you change it to and why?

7. Name 3 films that you’ve enjoyed watching this year?

8. For female bloggers – Ryan Reynolds head on your ex’s body? Or your ex’s head on Ryan Reynolds body? For male bloggers – Blake Lively’s head on your ex’s body? Or your ex’s head on Blake Lively’s body?

9. Have you ever shopped on Wish before? If so what did you think? If you haven’t, would you?

10. Do you ever wish you could go back to school and be the person you are now back then?

11. What is your favourite trend?

Finally it is time to tag 11 people who I want to see taking part in this tag! πŸ˜€

Autumn Tag 2018

We are officially 2 weeks into autumn now and whilst I was walking home yesterday after a lovely sushi and shopping date with my friend Sophie, I took some pictures.

Earlier that day Michael fromΒ mnealewriting tagged me to take part in the autumn tag. I can never turn down a tag post, especially one about autumn! Over the years I’ve done more autumn tag posts than I can remember. I don’t care though, my thoughts on autumn seem to change each year. πŸ˜›

So get yourself a lovely hot drink and a blanket as this is going to be a long tag, enjoy!

What signifies the start of Autumn for you?

When the trees start turning into that gorgeous orange colour we all know, that chill in the air in the mornings and evenings as you travel to and from work and when it starts to get darker earlier.

What is your favourite Autumn scent?

I definitely love scents like salted caramel and other baked scents. Especially when they’re warming and comforting.

What is your favourite Autumn colour?

Mustard, for sure! I do like burgundy too, but my love of this shade has diminished as the years have gone on. Mustard has always been a firm favourite though.

Are you a fan of PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte)

Hell no. It tastes of sugar, type 2 diabetes and heart failure.

What is your favourite Autumn drink?

I can’t say I have a favourite to be honest with you. Autumn and winter are definitely times when hot chocolates rear their yummy heads and I’m always down for a mint hot chocolate, but I associate that more with Christmas. Salted caramel latte is always a good choice.

What’s your favourite coffee shop and their drink of choice?

Anywhere really, I don’t have a favourite. I’ll go to Costa for hot chocolate and flat white and Starbucks for anything else. I love an independent coffee shop near where I live as they do creme brulee in any drink and it’s pretty damn amazing! I love independent coffee shops the most to be fair.

Apple Pie or Pumpkin Pie?

Neither. I find pumpkin flavoured things to be so American and it’s really took off over here. I don’t know why though.

What TV show, new or old, are you looking forward to in the next few months?

South Park! They have their new season out at the moment, which me and Dane need to watch actually. We’re also watching Attack on Titan and loving it. I keep binge watching This is England 86, 88 and 90 at the moment and it really makes me feel warm inside. It’s one of my favourite shows. To be fair I don’t really watch much TV, only catch up stuff. It’s gaming that’s happening for me the rest of the year!

What is your favourite Autumn fashion trend?

As you may have noticed I’m not all that fashionable anymore. BUT in my world of fashion… Erm… πŸ˜› No I’m loving the tartan trend right now! I’m wearing red tartan with cream, blue/green tartan with mustard and grey tartan with anything really. πŸ˜€

What is your favourite comfort food to enjoy in the colder months?

ALL THE FOOD! No, I especially love macaroni cheese, katsu curry, fish and chips and toad in the hole with gravy and roast potatoes. All the carbs basically.

What is your favourite Autumn activity?

Going out with Dane for walks and looking at Halloween and bonfire related goodies, just before all the Christmas stuff kicks off. I also like going out for Bonfire Night, we did that for the first time together last year and it was so much fun. I’m so excited to do it again this year already.

Do you like horror movies?

LOVE THEM! We watched one with our friends Jacqui and Chris yesterday evening. We watched the new IT and it was amazing! I’d watched half of it to be fair but the ending was good. SPOILER there’s going to be a second film coming out! But we’ve all planned to watch more horror movies and probably spend Halloween together.

Do you ever do anything fun for Halloween?

Not anymore to be honest, I’m getting too old for that now. Last year we did the house up the week of Halloween and got some trick or treaters at the door. They were only little kids with parents and THEY WERE ADORABLE! I made sure to have loads of sweets for them and this year I’ll do the same if I don’t go out for Halloween. I did really enjoy their faces when I told them how scary they looked, it’s so sweet. If we go out, we’ll probably go watch a horror movie, or go watch one with our friends.

What was your favourite part about Halloween as a child?

Well I only went trick or treating once and whilst it was fun, I felt wrong knocking peoples doors for free sweets. So that never really was my favourite thing. What was, however, was every Halloween a local stationary store stocked Halloween goodies and they just seemed to have LOADS of bat themed goodies! My mom would always buy me something and one year she bought me a blow up bat you were meant to hang on the wall. A couple of months later that bat broke and it wouldn’t inflate anymore. I was upset and gutted. When Halloween came the next year, they stocked the blow up bat again and my mom bought me another. It’s still at her house somewhere! To this day I try to buy a bat themed product over Halloween.

I just thought! You know what I really looked forward to over Halloween? Greggs cupcakes with the Halloween rings on the icing! I always wanted the bat one, but one year I managed to collect all three! A pumpkin, a skull and of course the bat. Oh man, how easy we had it when we were kids. πŸ˜›

Are you a bigger fan of Bonfire Night or Halloween?

Bonfire Night. To me it’s just the icing on the cake for autumn! As soon as Bonfire Night is over that’s it, everyone gets excited and their bodies are ready for Christmas! As I said before, me and Dane went out for the first time for Bonfire Night last year and we loved it! We had such a good evening and I have some very fond memories of it. I can’t wait to find somewhere to go this year already.

Where is your dream destination to visit in Autumn?

I don’t know to be perfectly honest with you… I would like to go to Bristol again soon as whilst I felt a bit out of place when I went for our anniversary in June, I do love that little city and the artist side of it. Otherwise I don’t know really. I’m going to Essex/London on at the start of November so that will be lovely!

Do you always forget about the clocks going back?

Ha I actually did to be honest with you! I just had to Google when it is as I can’t for the life of me remember.

When do you usually start preparing for Christmas?

I already have to be fair. πŸ˜› I usually do the start or end of October. I like it all done mid November to be honest with you so I have the rest of November and all of December to just chill out and enjoy Christmas and having money for meals out and German markets.

There we have it, that’s the autumn tag! I don’t think I’ve ever done this one before in all fairness and I LOVED it! πŸ˜€

So, who am I going to nominate?

Anyone who reads this post and loves autumn, I want you to give this tag a go! πŸ˜€ I would have tagged certain people, but I feel like the past few times I’ve just tagged the same couple of people recently and that just isn’t fair.

What’s your favourite season and why? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you had a lovely weekend. πŸ™‚

Flawsome Award

img_8133

I feel bad for posting 2 tag posts in a row, but I’ve been so damn busy this week that sadly I’ve not had time to sit down and think straight about what I want to write for my blog, even though I have loads of ideas.

Ross over at Man Vs Adulthood recently tagged me to take part in the Flawesome Award and I felt really loved to be tagged to do it. I love tag posts no matter what they’re about and as long as I feel able to do them, I will. Of course this one is not an exception.

About the Flawesome Award:

So, what are my flaws?

Urgh this post is going to be so hard for me to write today for so many reasons! I have so many flaws I ca talk about so listing 3 will probably be piss easy for me. πŸ˜›

Flaw 1 – I get wound up far too easily.

I don’t know why and although I have my suspicions as to why, I get wound up and annoyed so easily by anyone and everyone. The smallest thing can just piss me off and put me in a bad mood and it’s probably because people generally just bug me. I especially get wound up if people say things that I don’t agree with, or try to push that stuff onto me. It’s probably a trait I’ve picked up from both of my parents. We’re quite stubborn all three of us. I also blame my anxiety. If I feel anxious about a certain topic and someone is going on about it, it winds me up. I wish I couldn’t be so wound up and annoyed half the time, but meh that’s me and I don’t think I’ll ever change, sadly.

no way yes GIF

Flaw 2 – I overthink things.

This is definitely a flaw and although I like overthinking situations to prepare myself for the worst, it actually bugs me and people around me. I’ve overthought a scenario for almost all scenarios and that’s so mentally draining to be perfectly honest with you. I wish I didn’t overthink things, but at the same time whilst it’s a flaw, I also kind of like that I overthink stuff. It means I’m thoughtful of the outcomes of situations, whether they’re positive or negative thoughts.

Flaw 3 – 9 times out of 10, I actually dislike myself.

Oh what an emo flaw. I don’t know if this is technically classed as a flaw or not but I’m adding it regardless! I’m not exactly confident when it comes to myself with the way I look and whilst I get compliments almost daily from people and especially Dane, it just doesn’t do any good. I wish I could have a day where I don’t feel gross at myself but meh I don’t think this will ever happen. Definitely a flaw of mine is how much I judge myself and it sucks to be honest with you. I wish I could just not give a shit and be confident, but I doubt that’ll happen anytime soon.

I’m sorry for how emo my flaws are, but meh that’s just me. πŸ˜›

Anyhoo, take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely weekend.

Another 10 Facts About Me!

Good morning all, I hope you’re all well and had a lovely weekend… Even if the weather was shockingly shit! πŸ˜›

Gemma over at But Gemma Darling recently tagged me to take part in the 10 Little Unknowns tag. She’s such a sweetie and one of my favourite bloggers out there, so I KNEW I had to take part in this tag!

You can find her post here. I loved all her answers!

I’ve done unknown facts posts before on my blog, but I want to try and come up with some quirky answers and facts about me that not many know. I really hope you enjoy reading this post, I know I’m going to enjoy writing it. πŸ˜›

1. My thumb bends back a bit further than it should. It’s really odd and whilst I’m not double jointed, there is something unnatural about how far back my thumb goes. It’s always been commented on and it only seems to be my right thumb that does this. I try to make it straighter and “normal” looking but it actually hurts. Maybe I am slightly double jointed? Who knows. πŸ˜›

2. I like to think of this as my nifty party trick BUT I can rap “Weird Al” Yankovic’s White N Nerdy with and without the lyrics… But I’m better WITH the lyrics of course. πŸ˜› If you don’t know this song I’ve shown it above. It’s a really fast song to rap to and I’ve tried it on and off for the past 10 years now… So let’s just say I’ve had plenty of practise. πŸ˜›

3. I have food phobias. I don’t know how it started or when it started but meh I have it. I hate certain smells of foods, textures and even looks. The smell of thought of eating mushrooms makes me feel sick and in the past when I lived at home, my dad would fry mushrooms and once it made me throw up. Gross. I also hate the look of tomatoes, inside and out. They just don’t look like they should be eaten and that alone makes me heave.

Image may contain: 1 person, close-up

4. Inspired by Gemma, when I was born I wasn’t breathing straight away but a good smack to the bum got me to wake up. Apparently the drugs my mom had taken for the pain had caused me to erm… Not wake up basically. I was fine though!

5. I used to be a sex toy tester and every now and again I’ll test new sex toys, but that’s once in a blue moon lately. I’m not going to name which company I tested and reviewed for, but I did used to love doing it.

6. I have a pretty sick and dark sense of humour thanks to years of watching Dirty Sanchez, Jackass and cKy on MTV, as well as many other shows. Speaking of Dirty Sanchez, I recently went to see Lee Dainton and Matthew Pritchard talk about Dirty Sanchez and got to meet the guys after. Highlight of my year! πŸ˜€

Image may contain: 1 person, close-up

7. When I was 6 years old I looked like Hermione Granger… I hate this unknown fact about me as I’m not the biggest Harry Potter fan but meh, I see the resemblance. I wish my hair still looked that amazing! I loved having wavy hair growing up. This was due to a french braid though. My hair is naturally straight. Also, look how perfect them eyebrows are! πŸ˜›

8. I roll my eyes a lot, especially when talking about people and how they annoy me. I didn’t really notice how much I do this though until Dane’s brother pointed it out to me and how I look like the one guy from TGFBro. I just seem to do it to emphasise how annoying and dumb people are and in turn how much that annoys me.

9. Growing up I loved playing video games, my love of games has grown as the years have too, but sadly my enjoyment of certain games have declined and I couldn’t honestly tell you why. I have a feeling it’s actually from watching certain people play games for years and not having a go myself. It’s just made me feel like I may as well just watch people play games instead of partaking in them myself.

10. I actually think I have tokophobia, which is a fear of being pregnant/having children. I love seeing my friends and families babies and children, but the thought of having my own fills me with dread. The thought of having a baby freaks me out for so many reasons, including changing my body, my life and especially having no fucking money. Fair play to people who do it, I don’t know how you do. I’d say I don’t know why, but that would be very unfair. Meh either way this fear is growing monthly and it sucks.

Wow we made it to the end! It took me quite a few days to do, I’m not going to lie. πŸ˜› This post was actually meant to go up on Saturday but sadly I was just far too busy to get it done. 😦 Oh well, better late than never eh?

Do you feel like you learnt some new things about me? Let me know which one(s) you found were new facts!

Right, time to invite some awesome people to give this a go too. πŸ˜›

The Blogger Tag

Wow, what is this gorgeous weather we’ve been experiencing the past week or so?! It’s gorgeous and I wish the UK could be like it ALL THE TIME.

Sadly, I’ve not really been able to enjoy it 100% due to being busy etc. If I had furniture in my garden, I totally would be sat outside right now, with a cocktail (made by moi!) and writing this. Instead I’m sat by my back door, on my swivel chair with a glass of milk.

I didn’t have a clue what to write today in all honesty with you. I just wanted to spend my evening binge watching Peter Kay’s Car Share and playing Detective Pikachu. Alas, a blog post needs to be done and I’ve opted for a tag!

I found The Blogger Tag a while ago through Clairelouiisexo who had a go at the tag a while ago. You can find her answers here.

I know you’re meant to be tagged to do this post, but meh I never give a shit about that stuff to be perfectly honest with you.

  • How long have you been blogging for and why did you start?

I’ve been blogging since I was 22, so 6 years now! I started writing my blog because I wanted somewhere to write about the things I love and enjoy talking about. I’d wanted to go to YouTube but I lacked the confidence and as I’d not long finished university (where I studied creative writing) my writing urges were strong. I’m so glad I decided to get into blogging, I’ve met and spoken to some amazing ladies over the years, as well as been offered some amazing experiences along the way!

  • Is this current blog your first blog?

It’s actually my second but my first one only had a couple of blog posts on it before me moving over to WordPress. It was called something like Pashion For Fassion or something along those lines. I think I wrote a Lush Godmother Soap review on there, as well as a couple of designer wish lists. The name alone makes me cringe so bloody much! Before my blog was called There Might Be Coffee it was called Broken Prophet Blog. That was after my old Twitter handle. It was awful and it had to go!

  • What would you categorise your blog as?

I always say that I’m a beauty, fashion and lifestyle blogger with a geeky flare. I talk about all sorts though really, but I mostly talk about lifestyle stuff.

  • Is it still the same kind of blog as when you started?

Oh hell no! Since meeting my boyfriend Dane in 2013 he’s helped me shape who I am now. I’m a MASSIVE nerd and love so many things, including anything Japanese related. I used to be heavily fashion related years ago when I first started and definitely more into my lipsticks than I currently am. I’ve just branched out I suppose and instead of writing about what I thought was the right thing to do, I now write about what I WANT to.

  • Top 3 things about being a blogger?

The amazing fellow bloggers out there I’ve met and befriended.

Reading lovely comments from people on my blog posts (they’re the best bit tbh).

The wonderful opportunities I’ve gained through being a blogger, as well as experience.

  • What is your favourite kind of post to write?

All sorts really, it entirely depends on my mood. I love writing my monthly posts to share what products and general things I loved the previous month. I also love writing reviews about products I’ve both loved and hated. Most of all I love being able to write about anything I am passionate about and love to bits.

  • What is the hardest post you have ever written and published?

I don’t know to be honest with you… It’s such a tough question to answer! I guess some of the hardest posts I’ve ever had to write and publish have been when I’ve been honest about things, especially mental health issues. It’s hard enough writing the post, let alone publishing it for the world to see.

  • Tag 3 (or more) lovely bloggers!

Sarah – Raiin Monkey

Estelle – Estellosaurus

Vikki – Cuteek

SO that was The Blogger Tag! I’m so glad I’ve given this post a go as it was so much fun to do. I’m such a sucker for blog posts when it involves the whole questions and answers part. I put this down to passing hours of time after school and college on MySpace and doing the Q&A posts!

As I said on my last post, I do apologise for how quiet I’ve been of late on my blog, I’ve not been very well sadly and meh I’ve needed a break. I’m starting to feel better though now, which is good! I hope my readers are all well.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re ready for bank holiday!

The Gamer Tag

Oh man I love a good tag post to take part in and I’ve seen a couple of game related ones floating around lately! I’m not as big a gamer as I used to be, but even so I LOVE gaming on my own, as well as with Dane and our friends.

When I saw that Eleanor had done The Gamer Tag, I thought I would give it a go myself!

Like she did, I tag anyone who reads this post and wants to give it a go.

I hope you like and can relate to my answers!

1. WHAT IS YOU GAMER TAG?

I actually cannot remember and to be honest I’m 1. Too lazy to go and find out and 2. I don’t want randomers adding me. πŸ˜›

2. PC OR CONSOLE?

I like both but I’ve always been a console gal! πŸ˜›

3. CONSOLE OF CHOICE?

PlayStation 4, but considering I have an Xbox One and a Nintendo 2DS, the possibilities are endless! But if there’s a game I really want and it’s on PS4, I’ll get a game for that.

4. HANDHELD OF CHOICE? (DS, PS VITA, ETC.)

I prefer my 2DS to my PS Vita as I find there’s more choice, but I feel like I can do that little more on my PS Vita… AKA watch Crunchyroll. πŸ˜›

5. KEYBOARD OR GAMEPAD?

Gamepad for sure! I always get flustered using a keyboard.

6. SINGLEPLAYER OR MULTIPLAYER?

Depends on the game really… I love my single player games for obvious reasons, but I love playing with my friends too on multiplayer! I’d love for Persona 5 to be multiplayer so I could play with Dane.

7. WHAT WAS THE FIRST GAME YOU HAVE EVER PLAYED?

It was probably Pop’n Twinbee on the SNES. I still own that console as well as all the games I had handed down to me from my older brother and it’s safe to say, I still love it!

8. HARDEST GAME YOU HAVE EVER PLAYED?

Mmm… I thought long and hard about this for all of a minute and it’s definitely Rocket League! I cannot play it for toffee and I just hate it purely for how much I struggle to play it. I’ve played it with friends and just ended up rage quitting. I chase after the ball constantly and do fuck all with it. URGH!!!

9. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST GAMING SYSTEM?

The SNES! One of my older brothers bought himself a PlayStation so I had this donated to me. Years ago he asked my dad if he could have it back. Erm, no. πŸ˜› I still love it so much and play it once in a blue moon.

Persona GIF

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE GAME OF ALL TIME?

Oh man it used to be Pokemon but I think it’s been pushed off by Persona 5 recently! I don’t know, it might just be a toss up between the two. I’m a bit let down by Pokemon with Sun and Moon. They’re so different, easy to play and just boring and lame. I’m also sick and tired of them adding more and more Pokemon to the games… Only for them to be shite and pointless items! I don’t mind when it adds to stuff that works, AKA the Alohan forms as well as Eeveelutions, but I’m sick of Pokemon such as a bunch of keys or an ice cream. Come on guys, sort it out!

11. WHAT GAME IS CURRENTLY YOUR FAVOURITE?

Persona 5 for sure! I’m still on my second play through and trying to make it 100%! I’m also playing Persona 4: Golden at the same time… Which reminds me, I need to continue playing it! πŸ˜›

12. FAVOURITE VIDEO GAME GENRE?

I don’t know to be honest… I’m really loving JRPGs (Japanese role playing games) at the moment and I want to get more! I love games where I can relax whilst I play them too, such as Sims 4, Animal Crossing as well as Cooking Mama. It depends on my mood really!

13. FAVOURITE VIDEO GAME CHARACTER?

Oh man it has to be Akira/Joker from Persona 5. He’s such and awesome and loveable character. He’s been through shit and still acts normal and not hating the world for what has happened. I love that he hasn’t rebelled or acted like a dick.

Also how can I forget Princess Kenny?! Not a massive video game character, more of a TV show character but fuck it, she was in a game and she was bloody fabulous! πŸ˜›

14. WHICH VIDEO GAME CHARACTER DO YOU HATE MOST?

I had to ask Dane for help on this as I couldn’t think of anyone for AGES! The only person either of us could come up with was Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher 3. I just don’t like the sound of his voice and urgh! Dane used to play this LOADS at one point and I hated whenever the character spoke. I can’t say I hate him, but I can’t think of anyone else…

15. WHAT NEW GAME YOU ARE MOST EXCITED FOR?

I can’t think of any games I’m really arsed about right now… Apart from the new Persona dance games that are due out this year in Japan and maybe 2019 in the UK. I know I’m excited for a couple of games but meh they haven’t announced a date for some of them yet so sadly my hype and excitement for them can’t start just yet… Sad times!

16. FAVOURITE VIDEO GAME COMPANY/DEVELOPER?

I’ve always loved everything that Quantic Dream have released, especially Heavy Rain! I know everyone went mad for it but I’d played Fahrenheit beforehand so I was excited for Heavy Rain leading up to its released. I’m excited for Detroit: Become Human but there isn’t a release date yet. WHICH SUCKS!

17. WHAT GAMING SYSTEMS DO YOU CURRENTLY HAVE?

I own many, but my most up to date one is my PlayStation 4. Alongside that I have my SNES, GameCube, PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and a PlayStation 3. I also have variousΒ  handhelds including a GameBoy, GameBoy Color, GameBoy Advance, Nintendo DS Lite, Nintendo 2DS and PS Vita.

18. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN GAMING?

Since I can remember! Probably since the age of 5 or 6 when I was first given my SNES and my GameBoy.

19. HOW LONG WAS YOUR LONGEST GAMING SESSION?

Probably 12 hours… If there has been a longer gaming session then fuck knows when it was! When me and Dane first got together we would spend Sunday’s playing Minecraft for as long as possible before either of us went back home. I don’t play games as much as I used to and only tend to for long periods of time is if 1. Dane is away for work and I’m bored and 2. I’m obsessed with a game and Dane is happy doing his own thing for a very long time.

20. WHAT GAME HAVE YOU CLOCKED THE MOST TIME ON?

Definitely Persona 5! I’m currently on something stupid like 200-300 hours of game play! I am on my second play through however and near the end of it… I intend to play it again as well so that I can get all the trophies on it. πŸ˜› I’m pretty cure I have more hours on games such as Heavy Rain and any of the LEGO games I own due to wanting to get to 100% and all the trophies.

So that is The Gamer Tag! I do apologise for talking loads about Persona 5, but I swear that game has kind of changed my life… Gamer wise anyway! I’ve not loved something so much since I discovered Pokemon, lipstick and katsu curry!
