Get to know me tag

July 26, 2016

Hi lovelies,

I came across this lovely little idea on thirteenthoughts and I think it's a really lovely idea since I'm still fairly new to the blogging community. So the aim is simple, there are a range of questions which I have to answer purely based on ME! Let's go:

1. Are you named after someone? Well my granddad is called Laurence and then my dad's middle name is also Laurence so I always presume Lauren was the female version of Laurence and that's where my name came from... But according to my mum no - I am not named after anyone.

2. When was the last time you cried? I last cried a few hours ago whilst I was watching 'Love Your Garden' on ITV.

3. Do you have kids? No not yet I'm far too young, I'd love kids in the future though!

4. If you were another person - would you be a friend to yourself? I think I would be yes, I like to think I'm easy to get along with, I really enjoy my own company anyway so I'm going to go ahead and say yes!

5. Do you have a guilty pleasure? I wouldn't say so no, does Chocolate count as one?

6. Do you like your handwriting? No not at all, if Ii try to join my handwriting up it looks like a spider stepped in ink and ran across the page. I just don't join my letters and even though everyone else loves my writing I hate it.

7. What is your favourite cereal? I think I'd have to say Coco Pops, although as a child I lives off Shreddies so they'd have to come a close second!

8. What is the first thing you notice about people? Probably their attitude...

9. What colour are your eyes? They're blue!

10. Scary movies or happy endings? This really depends on my mood and who I'm with. I never watch scary movies alone I only watch them with my mum or boyfriend. If I'm on my own and need cheering up I love a rom-com.

11. Favourite TV show? I like so many at the minute... OITNB, Pretty little liars, Once upon a time and gossip girl to name a few.

12. Summer or winter? Summer, I love the heat!

13. Hugs or kisses? I love both of them, especially if they're from my boyfriend!

14. What's the furthest you've been from home? Well if we mean the furthest I've been on my own then probably Scotland on a weekend away, Newcastle visiting my boyfriend or Leeds where I have now moved too?

15. Do you have special talents? Nope, I'm completely talentless.

16. Where were you born? In Sheffield,  England.

17. What are your hobbies? I love reading whether it be blogs or books. Blogging is now a hobby of mine along with colouring and watching TV shows!

18. Do you have any pets? Back home in Sheffield I have a long haired black kitty called Narla (off the lion king), a dog called Woody and a budgie called Harlequin. In Leeds, where I live during term time, I have a random cat which lets himself into our house what we call Adsy, does he count?

19. Favourite movie? Asking me to pick one is cruel, I love any type of Disney film, you name it I have most likely seen it!

20. What colour is your car? My car is cream!

21. What did you want to be when you grown up? I went through a few different phases of wanting to be an air hostess, then I wanted to be a police woman, then a nursery nurse and then a children's nurse. A few years down the line I am now studying children's nursing and pursuing my dream!

Well that's all for now, that was actually really fun and I hope you learnt a little bit about me!

  4. Aww, I adore this and what a good first post for me to read. I am new to your blog so it's lovely to get to know a little about you. I love horror movies but these days there are more guts and gore movies than a good horror. And yes to chocolate! I don't really have a sweet tooth, I dislike desserts and sweets in general but can never turn down chocolate.
