The lovely Danielle over at Underland To Wonderland set a tag challenge this week, which I'll get to later, but I also spotted her 25 Questions post and thought I'd share my answers too!

1. Do you have any pets?
I have one pet and that's Panda Amos Starchild, my gorgeous furbaby guinea pig! I've only had him for a month and we're still getting to know each other, but he's lovely!

2. Name 3 things that are physically close to you.
A cup of tea, my laptop and my mobile, essential tools for blogging!

3. What's the weather like right now?
The sun is setting on what has been a beautiful sunny day!

4. Do you drive? If so have you crashed?
I've been driving for 16 years and I've never crashed! I've skidded about a few times in the snow and ice but *touch wood* I've never had an accident.

I currently drive a Toyota Celica, which I totally love! As soon as I saw it I knew it was the car for me and I've had it for about 5 years. The garage keeps telling me I should get a new car, but I'm not quite ready to part with my sporty Celica!

5. What time did you wake up this morning?
About 8:25am, which is my usual weekday time. I'm really not a morning person, so I leave it right til the last minute!

6. When was the last time you showered?
About 8:30 this morning!

7. What was the last movie you saw?
I went to see The Hangover III at the weekend and loved it, although it wasn't quite as good as the others. It didn;t have that same "wish I was there" feeling!

I run a Twitter cinema group which goes to see the latest new releases every weekend, so you can usually find me watching a movie or two (or three!) every weekend!

8. What does your last text message say?
It says "No problem! x" and it was a message to my friend who said thank you for giving her advice. It's also a phrase that I use ALL THE TIME!

9. What's your ringtone?
I don't have one, I always have my phone on silent! They're a bit of a pet hate of mine, mainly because people at work leave their mobiles on their desks and go out, so I have to hear the loudest most annoying tones ever!

10. Have you ever been to a different country?
Yes, I've been to a few: The rest of the UK, France, Belgium, Spain, Cyprus, Greece, Turkey, Netherlands, Portugal, Egypt, and my favourite of all, Japan. I love travelling and like to do it as much as possible! Later this year I'm off to the US for the first time and I'm very excited!

11. Do you like sushi?
Yip, I like how fresh it tastes. I didn't have any in Japan though because I'm a veggie and they put fish sauce on EVERYTHING, so I stick to my friendly local Yo! Sushi instead!

12. Where do you buy your groceries?
From supermarkets mostly. I do all my food shopping in the evening and can't imagine how I would have survived pre-24 hour opening!

13. Have you ever taken medication to help you fall asleep faster?
I remember trying Nytol once and thinking that it made absolutely no difference whatsoever, so I never bothered again. If I'm struggling to sleep I reach for a book instead.

14. How many siblings do you have?
I have an older sister and a younger brother. I'd say I'm a pretty typical middle-child :)

15. Do you have a desktop computer or a laptop?
I actually don't have either at the moment, I work as a Web Developer so my work provides me with both. When I move house (very soon I hope!) I'll have to get one or the other for my own use.

16. How old will you be turning on your next birthday?
Sadly, I'll be 35 in February. I very rarely give my age a thought, unless asked directly! I'm not at all a proper grown-up like some people my age, and I live in the hope that I might never be!

17. Do you wear contacts or glasses?
Neither. I wore glasses from the ages of 7-28ish, and contact lenses on and off from my teens upwards, but I decided to have laser eye surgery about 6 years ago and it's one of the best things I've ever done!

18. Do you color your hair?
I dye my own hair at home over the bath! I use L'Oreal Paris Casting Crème Gloss in Plum and even my hairdresser tells me how much she loves it!

19. Tell me something you are planning to do today.
Finish this post and go to bed! It's getting late and I had a very busy day at work, viewed a flat to buy, fed Panda some carrots and watched some TV, so I'm pretty tired!

20. When was the last time you cried?
I'm not really much of a crier, so it gets saved up over a long period of time and then I cry over something stupid and small! That happened earlier tonight, so I'm all set for the next 6 months!

21. What is your perfect pizza topping?
I usually have a veggie pizza, but I think it's Pizza Hut that do one with goats cheese, spinach, caramelised onions and cherry tomatoes. Yum!

22. Which do you prefer-hamburgers or cheeseburgers?
Even as a meat-eater I was never a fan of burgers, but I do like a halloumi burger, either from Giraffe or Ketchup restaurants. I guess that counts as a cheeseburger!

23. Have you ever had an all-nighter?
Oh yes! Quite a few to be honest! Sometimes the party is just too good to stop!

24. What is your eye color?
My eyes used to be really blue, but now they are blue/grey with flecks of light brown/orange. (Mental note: tidy up eyebrows)

25. Can you taste the difference between Pepsi and Coke?
Yes, absolutely.  I can tell the difference in taste and, this may sounds crazy, but the bubbles are bigger in Pepsi.

Hope you enjoyed reading that little insight into stuff about me!


  1. LOVED reading this!! Yey!
    Your guinea pig is so cute, I had one as a kid and it followed my rabbit around - they are lovely pets.

    I'm also suppper jealous you've been to Japan. Don't tell me if you visited Tokyo Disneyland because I'll cry ahaha!!

    Really nice to get a little insight about you :)

  2. Thanks Danielle!

    Don't worry, I didn't go to Disneyland in Japan, I heard it wasn't that great but I'd probably go next time. I did go to Sanrio Puroland, which is the home of Hello Kitty and it is the most amazingly sugary sweet place ever!

  3. Really like posts like this!
    Completely agree with the pepsi coke thing! Pepsi for the win :)

  4. Hi Hannah! They're so much fun to do and I love reading other peoples, it tells you a lot more about the blogger than usual posts!
