Gamer Confessions Tag

Good afternoon all, I hope you’re well! Wow I don’t usually start blog posts that way but I’m feeling something different today. πŸ˜›

This post has been scheduled and at this moment in time I’m watching Dirty Sanchez series 2 on Dane’s old (and I mean OLD) MacBook and it’s snowing outside. You wouldn’t think we’re almost at the end of January would you? πŸ˜›

I found this gamer tag by Michelle over on her blog A Geek Girl’s Guide and with the amount of gaming I do I thought it would be fun to have a go myself!

Image taken from weheartit.com

1. A game everyone loves that you can’t stand

Rocket League. I fucking hate that game and it’s for one reason… I’m really bad at it. Like atrociously bad. I can’t play it for toffee and I’ve tried over and over again and I just can’t get into it whatsoever. It reminds me of football games and they’re always rubbish. πŸ˜›

2. A game that you love, but no one else seems to

Probably both the DJ Hero games. πŸ˜› I’ve always been into club music due to my brother being a DJ when I was growing up. I remember buying the first game with the turntable and I played that game nonstop on my PS3 until I completed it. Then when DJ Hero 2 came out I was on it straight away. I’d love to play it again but meh I don’t think I can be arsed. πŸ˜›

3. An older game you haven’t finished, and probably never will

Tomb Raider 2… Even though I REALLY want to because I loved that game growing up! Someone messed up one of my saves on it and I was beyond gutted. I’d got to about level 7 on there and there’s a point where if she falls she just dies. You can’t grab or fuck all, she just drops to her death. Some arsehole saved the game on that and I was distraught at the time. I went back to it last year to continue but never did. I think I played the first level with Dane and that was about it.

4. A guilty pleasure game

I want to say Minecraft or Sims 4 as they’re both such relaxing games (until you set your Sims house on fire or you’re stuck in a mine with a bunch of creepers!) and you can really get lost in them for hours on end. In all fairness though it’s probably going to be Persona 5 as I can just sit and play it over and over again. πŸ˜›

5. A game you really love but haven’t played in a long time

Probably one of the Pokemon games or even a Lego game. I loved the Lego The Hobbit game but I haven’t played it for AGES and I would love to, but it’s on my PS3. I wish I could put it on my PS4 to play instead. 😦

6. A game you never play seriously but others do

Oh man I don’t know… I never play games seriously to be honest! πŸ˜› Probably something like Sims 4 and maybe Minecraft too!

7. A game you completed but hated it by the end

Life is Strange: Beyond The Storm. I was interested by the storyline and to find out more about Chloe and Rachel Amber but fuck me by the end of it I was glad it only lasted 3 episodes as they both pissed me off so much. The way they designed Rachel Amber got me the most. A spoilt brat who walks like a man (not that this is a problem it just didn’t suit her whatsoever!) and uses Chloe as much as possible. Then there’s Chloe… Don’t even get me started on Chloe. I was disappointed by the game as I feel they made the girls like that on purpose and if that’s the case they did an amazing job at pissing people off. I just love Max to be honest.

8. A game you thought you’d enjoy, but didn’t

Lego Worlds. Me and Dane were so excited to pick this up as we thought it would be like Minecraft but with Lego. We love the Lego games so why would this be any different? Sadly it was and in that same instance it was awful. It felt more like you had to run around a glitchy world trying to collect as many Lego series as possible. That isn’t what it was advertised to be and due to that it was a massive disappointment.

9. A game you didn’t think was for you, and then loved

Oh man it has to be Persona 5! I had heard nothing but awesome things about it before it came out and I mentioned it time and time again to Dane to see what he thought. He’d say, “I don’t think it’s your thing Nat. It’s like the Final Fantasy games.” and sadly I can’t stand them. I hate the game play so much. So I ummed and ahhed about Persona 5 for ages and the day it came out I went to buy it from Amazon but it was sold out. A week later I found it in my local Argos and picked it up. I fell in love with the story as well as the game play and it has now gone up as one of my favourite games of ALL TIME. πŸ˜€

10. A game you are still excited for that hasn’t come out yet

I’m already excited for the Persona 5: Dancing Star Night to be perfectly honest! It comes out in Japan in May this year so I don’t know when we’ll get it. If it’s anything like Persona 5 was we’ll probably have it December… I CANNOT WAIT THAT LONG! :O

Another other games I’m excited for though? A Way Out looks like loads of fun and is one me and Dane would get to play together! That comes out late March. I’m SUPER excited for Detroit: Become Human but as of yet it doesn’t have a confirmed release date, which I’m gutted about as I feel like myself and others have been waiting years for this game now. 😦

So that is all the questions and my answers for the Gamer Confessions Tag!

If you want to know what Michelle’s answers were I’ll link her Gamer Confessions Tag post here.

If you fancy giving this tag a go THEN GO FOR IT! Make sure to let me know so I can read your answers, as well as letting Michelle know too!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely day.

Shuffle The Music Tag

Image taken from weheartit.com

Recently the beautiful and gorgeous lady that is Stacey tagged me to take part in the shuffle music tag! I love being tagged to do things, especially random tags like this one! I know I partake in enough tags to last me a lifetime, but I don’t recall ever doing a shuffle music tag and if I have, it was a VERY long time ago. I love listening to music, it’s what makes me who I am and over the years has shaped who I am too! It’s thanks to my older brother, as well as people I looked up to growing up that introduced to a lot of the artists I listen to today.

I’m not going to lie, I’m just gutted there was only 15 numbers, I kept wanting to add so many trackers after the initial 15! GUTTED! πŸ˜›

As I said before, I was tagged by Stacey over at Simply Stacey for Shuffle The Music Tag. You can read Stacey’s answers here.

Again, thank you so much Stacey for tagging me! I loved reading your answers before I went ahead and took part in the tag! Now, let’s take a look at the rules:

  • Mention the creator of the tag and link to their blog
  • Thank the person that nominated you for this tag and link to their blog as well
  • Shuffle your entire music library (no matter how old songs the songs are) and talk about the first fifteen songs that come up ( anything like why they are there , if they signify something, any story, why you like them, etc.)
  • Mention the songs as well as the artists
  • Tag 7 people or more to do this tag and please let them know

And now it’s time to press β€œShuffle”, and the first 15 tracks on my shuffle list are…

1)Β Lily Allen|Chinese

Oh man I remember when Lily Allen first came out, I fell in love with her music and sadly after this album I didn’t like her anymore. This is from her second album and I listened to it loads when I was in my final year of college and first year of university. I still really love this song as when I listen to the lyrics it reminds me of me and Dane when we first moved into the house and I was in a dark place. That and it’s just such a sweet and nice song, one you can definitely sing along to!

2)Β The Offspring|(Can’t Get My) Head Around You

This is a band I definitely grew up listening to and they hold a place deep down in my heart! I remember discovering them through the game Crazy Taxi and it was only when I asked my brother who they were that he put one of their albums on for me to listen to. I only own the greatest hits, but I need more music of theirs.

3)Β Mylo|Zenophile

Mylo is an artist I discovered when I went to college and it’s an album I always stick on whenever I’m on holiday, or having a “party” at our house as it’s such a chilled album. There isn’t one song on this album that I would skip because they’re all so amazing! I love chillout music so much and this is definitely my go to album when I want to listen to any. This song is so relaxed and chilled to listen to as well. Definitely give Mylo a listen if you want something chilled.

4)Β Knife Party|Resistance

If there’s a band I love, it’s Knife Party! They blew up years ago and are pretty much Pendulum, BUT BETTER! If you want some music you can listen to whilst driving on the motorway, or something to listen to before going on a night out, then Knife Party is the band to go to! When I was younger and went out clubbing pretty much every night (whilst working may I add! This wasn’t whilst I was a student!) this was my go to artist to listen to before going out. This is one of the newer tracks and as soon as “this is a knife!” hits, the bass just comes in and you can party! It reminds me of the sort of music people listen to whilst off their heads on something to give the more energy. πŸ˜›

5)Β The Bravery|Unconditional

Aww The Bravery! This is a band who I really liked, but not as much as I thought I would! I remember getting this song on a compilation CD from a friend and I loved it so much. Years later I bought the album and I was so disappointed! I remember as a kid reading about the rivalry between these guys and The Killers, The Killers back then were one of my favourite bands and their first album has a place in my heart. I still love this song so much though and it reminds me of when I was younger.

6)Β Nirvana|Heart-Shaped Box

Oh Nirvana, a band who I was brought up listening to, but due to my age I never understood them. When my brother and I started hanging out (I was 7 and he was 25) he tried to introduce me to everything he loved and it really did rub off onto me… But it only sunk in years later. Star Wars was one of them, Nirvana another. I just love their music, as well as the lyrics and this is probably my favourite Nirvana song.

7)Β Daft Punk|The Game Of Love

Daft Punk are one of my favourite bands and they’re also on my “band to see before they/I die” list. I was so damn excited back in 2013 when this album was announced and released and I listened to it daily and very loudly may I add. I loved it so much I even wrote a post about it on my blog! I’ll link it here if you fancy reading it. I really love this song on the album, it just sounds so heartbreaking and yet beautiful at the same time. It’s a very chilled song.

8) Queens Of The Stone Age|I’m Designer

Another band who are on my “band to see before they/I die” list! I love Queens Of The Stone Age so much and every time they have come to the UK I’ve not gone to see them! Usually because they’re too expensive for me at the time, they don’t play in Birmingham or because I have no one to go with! I’ve been listening to them for years and Josh Homme was one of my first crushes, aww baby Nat’s first ginger crush too (I wouldn’t even put it that way but Dane is a ginge… :P)! The album Era Vulgaris is definitely my favourite and I used to listen to it constantly when it first came out. Again, another album I hold close to my heart.

9) cKy|Tripled Manic State

cKy are one of my favourite bands and also one that I got to check off of my list of bands to see this year! They were amazing live and my 13/14 year old self was in love the whole night, especially when I got to meet Jesse Margera afterwards! But I love this song so much, it’s definitely an album that I ended up listening to loads when I was in college and just dealing with my depression. It was just like a comfort blanket that I would listen to on my way to and from college.

10) Eight Legs|These Grey Days

This is a song that used to be in a binge drinking advert in the UK and as soon as I heard it, I fell in love and took to YouTube to try and find out what it was! Thankfully I discovered it and thanks to the early days of MySpace, I got to download it for free and officially from the bands page! I still have it to this day and I love it still.

11) +44|Chapter XIII

I’m sorry Blink 182 fans, you will hate me BUT I loved +44 and I now love the new Blink 182 stuff and it’s all for one reason… NO MORE FUCKING TOM DELONGE! I’m sorry but he’s the reason I fell out of love with Blink 182 years ago. πŸ˜› When I was in my last year of school a guy a year above who I was friends with introduced me to +44 WAYYYYY before they even brought their first single out. I fell in love with them and as soon as their album came out, I downloaded it. This album definitely reminds me of when I was really starting to become who I am today. It holds a place deep down in my heart.

12) RushJet1|Son Of Flynn

This is actually part of a chiptune album that came out with LOADS of Daft Punk songs on it and this actually the second album. It’s a huge compilation and this is just one of the artists who features on it. This is by far my favourite song on the second album and is one I listen to repeat if it comes on in the car.

13) Bloodhound Gang|Farting With A Walkman On

I know a lot of people who dislike Bloodhound Gang (because of their stupid lyrics. Fuck it man, I’d prefer that to depressing love songs ALL THE DAMN TIME!), Dane being one of them but they’re one of the bands from my childhood, purely because of The Bad Touch. This song used to come on the dance games back in the day and I remember my one cousin loving it. We called it The Waffle Song because we didn’t know what it was called! Years later, thanks to cKy and Bam Margera I found out who Bloodhound Gang were and it’s been a massive love affair since then. This (AGAIN!) is another band on my bands to see before I die list. Every time they have come to the UK I haven’t been to see them and I regret it so fucking much.

14) Oasis|Where Did It All Go Wrong?

Oasis is another band I was brought up listening to and this was the first album I owned by them and due to that it is definitely my favourite. This in turn is one of my favourite songs on the album and one I have sang to various times, whether I’m upset, happy, or just normal and fine. Of course Noel Gallagher sings, so it sounds lovely. πŸ˜› Although me and my one brother don’t talk anymore, Oasis and Nirvana both remind me of him and I guess it’s him introducing me to such amazing music that’s shaped me to who I am today…

15) Pharrell|Frontin’ Feat. Jay-Z

Oh man, remember when Pharrell was in N.E.R.D. and they played funk rock? Yeah me too! πŸ˜› This was when Pharrell really went out and did his own thing and I fell in love with it! The tune was catchy, the singing was chilled and nice and it just worked. Especially for the time when it came out as well! I still love listening to this song today and it’s definitely a classic to listen to during the summer and especially on holiday. Oh and Jay-Z is on it, so it’s got to good, right? πŸ˜›

WOOHOO that’s all 15, even though I wish it was 50! πŸ˜› Please go and give the songs above a listen if you haven’t heard them/of them before. If you’ve heard of any of the bands or songs before, please let me know if you like them down below, as well as the artist/band.

I really enjoyed giving this tag a go and I even typed up some of my answers when I was at work as I’d shuffled the iPod on my way to work today to get the last 5 songs! πŸ˜›

Now it’s my turn to tag people:

See The Universe

kkochsongi

A Geek Girls Guide

Little Pink Duck

Lost In Translation

The Mini Mermaid

Married To The Music

I really hope you enjoyed this tag and until next time, take care all! πŸ˜€

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like A… CHRISTMAS TAG!

With every season and special event(s) that arise around them, a tag post will always be flying around and if there isn’t, I always find one. I love taking part in tag posts and especially love reading peoples answers on them! I just feel like it helps you find out more things about a blogger, whether they’ve been around for years, or just starting out. It’s also a great way to share fellow bloggers websites and Twitter handles out there on the World Wide Blogging Web!

Before the weekend Sarah over at Raiin Monkey tagged me as well as some of my gorgeous fellow geeky bloggers to take part in the Christmas tag (you can read her answers here!)

AND since it snowed in Birmingham before the weekend, I’ll be using my own snow pictures for this post! πŸ˜€

1. Do you start your Christmas shopping on Black Friday or wait until last minute?

I get my Christmas shopping done WAYYYY before Black Friday! I try and get it started at the start of November so that I don’t have to do the rustle and bustle of Christmas shopping at the end of November an on wards. My family have always left Christmas shopping until the last minute and I always hated that. My dad is terrible for it and literally a week before Christmas he’ll be buying stuff and wonder why everything is sold out! xD

2. If you could be in any Christmas movie, what would it be?

Home Alone for sure! That’s my favourite Christmas film and I’d love to play one of the bad characters. πŸ˜› OR star as like a character is a jokey Star Wars Christmas was made. πŸ˜›

3. Which do you like better: Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?

I like both to be honest for different reasons. I like Christmas Eve because it’s that little excitement for Christmas and you get the buzz! I also love Christmas Day because although I’m excited to receive my own gifts, I just love seeing people’s faces (especially Dane’s) when they open their gifts from me. That’s my favourite part to be honest. I see Christmas as a way to thank people for being there for me throughout the year.

4. When does your family (or you) put up your Christmas tree and who decorates it?

Me and Dane put our tree up on the 1st December and we both decorate it together. I think it’s going to become a thing where we take it in turns to put the tree up, but we’ll decorate it together. I put it up this year and making a tree look plump and fluffy is one of the hardest things to be honest! Dane had to finish it off for me, as apparently our tree was looking bald down below. xD

5. White lights or coloured lights?

I like both to be honest, but we have coloured lights for Christmas, which we haven’t even switched on yet this past week and a bit!

6. Are you guilty of peeking at your presents or do you like the surprise?

I can’t help but have a peek to be honest… I’m always curious what I’ve been bought I suppose. I’ve had a peek in my bag of gifts from Dane, as he has with his gifts from me but I want a surprise. I love surprises! πŸ˜›

7. Would you rather live in a gingerbread house or in Santa’s workshop?

If the gingerbread house constantly smelt of gingerbread, then Santa’s workshop. HOWEVER if the house didn’t smell like that, then the gingerbread house. πŸ˜› Not going to lie, I actually really love that question. πŸ˜›

8. Tell us your Christmas Eve traditions!

As our first Christmas was last year, I don’t actually know if we’ve fully made any yet. We watched Sausage Party last year and ordered a curry. I wouldn’t want to make having a takeaway a tradition to be honest. Just cuddling and watching Christmas films, or new films would be nice. I want to try and cook us something really nice this Christmas Eve. I’m thinking of getting some nibbly party food for me and Dane to have.

9. If you could be under the mistletoe with anyone who would it be?

Definitely Dane. πŸ™‚

10. What tops your Christmas tree?

We have a blue star, although I keep meaning to bring the angel that I used to top my tree with at home.

11. Can you name the 12 days of Christmas?

A Partridge in a pear tree

2 white doves

I can’t actually think what the rest of the song is! I am awful at this! xD

A funny story though, me and my cousin one Christmas Eve we were watching TV and came up with a rude 12 days of Christmas. I won’t write it here, but I am legit texting it to her now! *many moments later* Okay I did it. πŸ˜›

12. Have you ever gone Christmas caroling?

I was about to write no, but I actually did once when I was at school! I was part of the choir when I was in secondary school and we were taken to an old people’s home to sing to them one Christmas. It was lovely to be honest and I was gutted that it was never done again. 😦

13. Do you countdown to Christmas? If so, how many days left?

I can’t help but countdown to be honest! Whether it’s hearing it on the radio, reading about it on social media, or just events coming up so quickly you forget where the time has gone. Currently it is just under 2 weeks until Christmas. DAYUM!

14. What are some foods and treats you can count on having every holiday season?

I’m not sure to be honest, probably just the usual stuff. I always try and get a chocolate cake, especially one that contains salted caramel! You can never go wrong with that sort of stuff. πŸ˜› OH and chocolate truffles! Oh man, I want to go to Aldi now to buy yummy goodies ready for Christmas! xD

15. How has Christmas kept its magic for you as you’ve grown older?

To be honest I haven’t always had the “Christmas magic” that many people have, purely because of always being made to feel let down over the years, not just by family, but mostly by my friends. Christmas is a time of being happy and celebration, but it’s also a time of people being selfish, as well as being sad. I think since meeting Dane in 2013 my Christmases have gotten better and better! We always do nice things together, as well as with our friends and families and it’s lovely. I wouldn’t say I have any Christmas magic, I just use it as a time to appreciate the people in my life more and more each year. You know? πŸ™‚

So those are my answers on the Christmas tag!

A massive thank you to Sarah for tagging me because before she had, I had forgotten all about doing a tag this year.

I tag EVERYONE who reads this post to take part and do it themselves!

I hope you all have a lovely week though and until next time, take care.

Halloween Tag 2017

I swear if Sarah over at Raiin-Monkey had a super power it would be to read minds, as she certainly read mine recently! A few days ago she tagged me to take part in the Halloween tag that she’d recently done herself. I wanted to have a go at a Halloween tag again this year, so I thought HELL YEAH I’LL DO THAT! πŸ˜› You can read Sarah’s answers on her post here.

It’s officially Halloween today and although I didn’t go out for Halloween this year, I’m staying in on my own watching some horror movies and giving out sweeties to trick or treaters. Me and Dane have decorated the house this year for the first time and it certainly won’t be the last!

So without further ado let’s get onto the tag questions!

Image taken from weheartit.com

(1) What’s your favourite horror or Halloween-themed song?

If anything probably “Thriller” by Michael Jackson as I just always remember it being on during nights out, as well as on a radio show I used to listen to when I was younger (KERRANG! RADIO’s Tim Shaw’s Asylum was my holy grail growing up!). Can “Dragula” by Rob Zombie count as well? πŸ˜›

(2) Name something you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark forest or abandoned building.

The Alien! It’s definitely one of the things that still gives me nightmares to this days. If I ever watch the Alien movies I am guaranteed to not sleep for a week.

(3) Have you ever played with a Ouija Board?

Never and I don’t intend to either… I remember when me and my cousins were younger we discussed the idea but it never happened, thank God.

(4) Favourite horror monster or villain?

Ooo I don’t know really to be honest… I legit have had to Google because I can’t think of any! xD Seth Brundle from The Fly came up on a list I found and he’s not my favourite, but he’s one of the creepiest for sure. Jigsaw from the Saw films is always a good choice too! I didn’t really class it as a horror (but some people do) but Annie Wilkes from Misery would probably be my favourite to be honest!

Image taken from weheartit.com

(5) What’s the creepiest thing that’s ever happened while you were alone?

Years ago not long after my aunt died and before her funeral our house didn’t feel quite right. It was freezing cold whatever room I was in, doors were creaking open and slamming shut on their own and something just felt off. It was after the funeral that all these things stopped and it wasn’t as cold in each room anymore. I’m sure it’s nothing to do with ghosts etc, but it was definitely odd at the time.

(6) If you were dared to spend the night in a ‘haunted house’, would you do it?

Fuck no! I like my sleep. πŸ˜›

(7) Are you superstitious?

I am sometimes, it depends really. I believe that bad things come in threes, I don’t cross people on stairs (in a house mainly), groups of black crows make me think about death being on the way and so many more things I could think of!

(8) Do you ever see figures in your peripheral vision?

I probably have when I’ve felt anxious or paranoid but otherwise not really…

(9) Which urban legend scares you the most?

I don’t really have any in all honesty… At least none I can think of anyway. If anything has ever creeped me out it’s probably been like creepy shit Dane has told me he’s read about on Reddit.

Image taken from weheartit.com

(10) Do you prefer gore or thrillers?

Thrillers usually to be honest. Gore is good, but I love a good thrill. πŸ˜‰

(11) Do you believe in multiple dimensions or worlds?

Not really to be honest… I like to just focus on one dimension and world at a time. πŸ˜›

(12) Ever made a potion of any sort?

No, although I remember looking at the articles in Mizz magazine as a teenager and remembering all the jokey sort of potions you could do! I remember trying one where you would pull a hair from your head, write the name down of the boy you wanted to have fall in love with you, put them both in an envelope and say some words on it and it would “come true”… NAHHHH IT NEVER CAME TRUE!

(13) Do you get scared easily?

Oh God yes! I have anxiety so I get uptight, worried and scared over silly little things.

(14) Have you ever played Bloody Mary?

Never… What is it? *Googles* NAHHHH NOT DOING THAT! xD

Image taken from weheartit.com

(15) Do you believe in demons/the devil?

I don’t know to be honest… I don’t think I do really.

(16) You’re home alone but you hear footsteps in your house, what do you do?

Scream and probably die of a heart attack. πŸ˜› Nah I joke! I’d probably freeze wherever I am in the house, listen a little more and then maybe go and check it out… Probably stop off at the kitchen on the way and grab the biggest knife I own. πŸ˜›

(17) If you got trapped in one scary movie, which would you choose?

Erm I’m not sure… I said Saw but no way would I want to be in that franchise! xD I’d want to be in Scary Movie because it’s all jokes. πŸ˜›

(18) If you could only wear one Halloween costume for the rest of your life, what would you be?

Definitely Alex DeLarge from A Clockwork Orange! It’s by far been my favourite Halloween costume of all time! πŸ˜›

(19) Would you ever go to a graveyard at night?

No and not because I’d be frightened as to what could happen, but more because that’s just gothic and creepy! πŸ˜›

Image taken from weheartit.com

(20) In a zombie apocalypse, what is your weapon of choice?

I was going to say a baseball bat, but I don’t have one of those to hand… So I’d probably grab one of our bass guitars or my camera tripod.

(21) Would you rather go to a Halloween party or go trick or treating?

Definitely a Halloween party! I only ever went trick or treating once as a kid and I hated it to be honest, purely for the fact I felt like I was being so cheeky asking for sweets from a stranger. If me and Dane ever have a kid/children I’d want to hold an awesome Halloween party for them and their friends and hold a competition for the best costume etc. I love Halloween!

(22) You’re in a horror movie. Are you the final girl, the first to die, the comic relief, the skeptic, the smart one, or the killer?

Ooo I love villains so I’d definitely want to be the killer! πŸ˜›

(23) Do you have to watch something happy after watching a horror movie so you can go to sleep?

Not really, unless it’s an Alien movie. Then I need to watch puppy videos… Lots of puppy videos! πŸ˜›

(24) Whilst watching scary movies, are you the person who yells at the characters, the person with their eyes covered the whole time, or the person who falls asleep?

Oh I am for sure the one who yells at the characters! Watching the last couple of episodes of Stranger Things season 2 I just kept screaming at the characters! It was making Dane laugh loads. πŸ˜›

Image taken from weheartit.com

(25) Are you the one who gets scared, or the one who does the scaring?

I’m more so the one who gets scared, but depending on the situation I can do the scaring too. πŸ˜›

(26) Favourite scary book?

I can’t say I’ve ever read a scary book…

(27) How old were you when you saw your first horror movie?

HA! I was 6 years old funnily enough. I remember waking up due to noise downstairs so ventured down to see what was happening. My parents had the original Alien film on and my mom said, “come sit and watch this, it’s ever so funny!” and thinking it would be I sat, watched and waited for the funny moment to come on. She was referring to the chest bursting scene, which scared the crap out of me! I didn’t sleep for a week and since then whenever I watch Alien movies I don’t sleep properly and get night terrors. My mom scarred me! πŸ˜›

(28) What was your first Halloween costume?

Probably a bat, I loved them growing up. πŸ˜›

(29) What are you going to be for Halloween this year?

A disgusting late twenties mess of a coach potato. πŸ˜›

Image taken from weheartit.com

(30) If you could have a spooky Halloween pet (black cat, owl, bat, rat, wolf), what would you pick?

Oh my if I could have a wolf I would love it! A bat would also be amazing to be honest. I’d feel like some sort of evil villain with those two by my side. πŸ˜›

So that’s the Halloween tag! I have to be honest I really enjoyed doing this one as there were loads of questions that I’ve never answered before!

A massive thank you to Sarah for tagging me to take part in the tag, I really needed to do something like this to give me that nudge to do work on my blog. My mental health hasn’t been too great the past week so it’s been lovely to have this as a way to encourage me slowly back into writing on here.

I tag everyone who reads this tag post to have a go yourself.

Until next time, take care all and have a spooky Halloween!

Autumn Tag 2017

Image taken from weheartit.com

Another year, another autumn tag!

Just want to say first of all, HELLO! I feel like I haven’t been around for forever, when it’s only been about 3 weeks. As many will know I just got back (early hours of Thursday) from a 2 week holiday in Fuerteventura. It was amazing and to be honest I just felt like I’d gone home (which I kind of did tbf seeing as I’ve been there for more times than I can count and have a house there…) and had time off of work etc.

I’ll be writing LOADS of posts Fuerteventura related over the next couple of weeks so keep your eyes peeled for those! For now however I need to get an autumn related post out there. Autumn started whilst I was on holiday and Thursday morning when me and Dane went out for a very naughty McDonald’s breakfast I noticed that autumn well and truly started whilst we were gone.

Every year I do a post with an autumn tag, and this year is no different from the rest. I hope you enjoy this one, I’ve tried to find one that isn’t an exact replica of previous years. πŸ™‚

This tag is floating around everywhere to be honest but I found this one through Lotte’s Beauty Box, so please make sure to go and check out her answers!

Quick disclaimer… The use of both the terms Autumn and Fall kept chopping and changing throughout this tag and whilst I didn’t notice it, Dane did as he was sat next to me. His point about fall being an American term for autumn and the chopping and changing of the two was very accurate… So I changed Fall to Autumn. Got to be British and accurate/correct, right? πŸ˜›

1. What signifies the start of Autumn for you?

When the leaves start to change in colour. I just love the yellow, orange and brown colours of autumn so much and it’s when the leaves go this colour that I know I can start saying we’re in autumn territory.

2. What is your favourite Autumn scent?

I always forgot about how much I love it but La Petite Robe Noire by Guerlain is definitely one I love to wear as the weather gets colder. Since the day I first smelt it it has always reminded me of Lush’s discontinued Space Girl bath bomb. It has a warm blackcurrant/blackberry type scent which I love. I’ve owned this for ages and it’s still lasting so well! As soon as it runs out I’ll definitely be buying a new one!

3. What is your favourite Autumn colour?

Mustard yellow and burgundy. Always have been and always will be! Which in turn reminds me that I need to get a new mustard yellow jumper. I’ve seen one in Zara which I’ll be picking up very soon. My previous one was from there and it was so damn comfortable!

4. What is your favourite Autumn drink?

I’m always down for hot drinks… But I wouldn’t say I’m much of an autumn drink gal. I’m more of a winter hot drink person. If I could pick anything thought it’d definitely be something salted caramel related! I can’t remember when BUT I do remember Starbucks bringing out a burnt salted caramel latte and it was amazing. I wish they would make it permanent. 😦

5. What TV show, new or old, are you looking forward to this Autumn?

I’m definitely excited for Stranger Things 2 to come out! I’m also really excited to continue to binge watch American Horror Story with Dane. Now we’re back from holiday we’ll be starting on season 3 very soon… AKA later on today. I’m also loving that seasons 21 of South Park has kicked off, as well as the new season of British Bake Off, which I am loving this year.

6. What is your favourite Autumn fashion trend?

It’s got to be Dr Martens boots and sweaters with prints of my favourite things on! I’m really after a new pair of Docs this year and I’m forever after new sweaters! πŸ˜› I bought a new one whilst I was in Fuerteventura (which I’ll be showing in a haul VERY SOON!) and I’ve seen a sweater dress from Bershka that I’m going to buy soon too.

7. What is your favourite frugal Autumn activity?

I don’t really have one to be honest… BUT since being on holiday I want to go for walks with Dane in the countryside. We did loads of walking when we were away and if there’s a season I want to do this with, it’s autumn.

8. What is your favourite makeup look come autumnal weather?

As I only wear lipstick, a gorgeous dark and vampy look is always a good look no matter what! I’ve bought a new dark purple recently by Barry M (which I’ll be reviewing soon!) and it looks stunning, especially for autumn.

So that was the autumn tag! I’m so damn excited to be at home as it’s started to kick off. I never had it when I lived at home, but in my own home me and Dane have the best autumnal view in our front room, which I love more than anything.

I tag whoever loves autumn to take part in this! So… That’s practically everyone then. πŸ˜›

Until next time, take care all and have a lovely Sunday.

Identity Tag

Image taken from weheartit.com

I recently found this tag post over on Tori’s blog and I wanted to post it today as I’m due to go on holiday in LESS THAN A WEEK NOW! OMG! Due to this I’m a little busy today on my day off and I actually need to start packing my suitcase, or it’ll be left until the last minute. πŸ˜›

I love doing tag posts so let’s get on with it! πŸ˜€

If they made a song about your life what genre would it be?

It would definitely be in the rock genre and probably a slow sort of rock with some powerful guitar solos thrown in there for good measure.

What is your sole purpose in life?

To have a happy life with Dane. To do whatever makes us happy and be comfortable. Have a lovely home with at least one child, a miniature schnauzer puppy and many holidays to Japan.

What do you regret doing?

I regret not studying a degree I could get some use from.

What are your strengths?

I’m passionate about the things I love, whenever someone needs me for anything I like to think I can be an honest shoulder to cry on. I’m also good at writing, I like to think so at least…

What are your weaknesses?

I get wound up and pissed off too easily. My anxiety can stop me doing things that I really want to do. Oh and I bear grudges.

What is one thing that people might not know about you?

Erm… I dunno really… That I love Marmite? xD

What has been the best decision of you life?

Joining Plenty of Fish for a laugh back in 2013. I wouldn’t have met Dane if I hadn’t and God knows who I would be with now and if I’d have my lovely home. It’s from meeting Dane that my inner geek came out. I just became the person I am due to him and I am thankful for that everyday.

What are you afraid of and why?

I’m afraid of fucking up and losing all of this. Although I am low most days and suicidal I am at the same time thankful and happy with what I have with Dane and how he has shaped me and helped me be who I really am and who I have always wanted to be. The fear of change and loss bugs me.

So who do I tag to do the identity tag? EVERYONE! πŸ˜€

I also want to say a massive thank you to Tori for tuning in to both of my first Instagram live videos that I hosted over on my blog Instagram last weekend. She was lovely and gave me so much confidence! I hope to do another live video tonight, so keep your eyes peeled for that if you’re interested!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having an awesome week so far!
