One of my bestest buddies Leanne is a big Taylor Swift fan and did this tag over on her blog Eat, Love, Wanderlust recently.

I'm not such a big fan but the questions are really good so I'm giving it a go! Feel free to join in!


1. Welcome to New York // If you could live in any city, which would it be and why?

Easy. It'd be Tokyo. It's somewhere I'd always wanted to go and when I finally went there in 2012 it was every bit as wonderful as I'd expected, if not more so! It's such a diverse, efficient and friendly place, I'd love to go back. I'll stop gushing just now, but if you want to read about my trip feel free to here!

2. Blank Space // What is something that everyone thinks is true about you but is actually false?

I have no idea! What have they been saying about me?! I think I'm pretty straight-forward so I can't really answer that one!

3. Style // What is one item in your closet that makes you feel unstoppable?

I would say heels, but that unstoppable feeling only last until they begin to hurt and make me stop! But sometimes you just stick on an outfit and it feels amazing, like you've actually managed to put together something that is fashionable and makes you look really good! That's when I'm unstoppable!

4. Out of the Woods // What is one thing that you’re afraid of?

Anything bad happening to my family, which is a pretty obvious one. Generally I don't have any phobias, although I would have said blood tests before, but after having lots of them recently has kind of cured that!

5. All You Had To Do Was Stay // Who is someone you wish was still in your life?

This is going to sound harsh but no-one. I have lost my fair share of family and friends, and I think that people come and go throughout life, each leaving something behind which shapes you as a person.
6. Shake It Off // What is something you have had to shake off?

Worrying about what people think. For the majority of my life I haven't given a crap about what people think, but somewhere in my early 30s I sort of stopped being me and started to conform to what other people wanted me to be. At the time I didn't see it, but as soon as I did and started claiming back all the weird and wonderful things that make me the individual that I am, everything started to fall into place!

7. I Wish You Would // What is something you’d like to happen right now?

Seeing as our first baby is due to arrive very soon, I'd like an easy, quick birth to a happy and healthy baby please!

8. Bad Blood // Have you ever had someone stab you in the back?

Hells yeah! I think everyone has. But people have their own reasons for doing things, and I just cut them off. You don't need people like that in your life.

9. Wildest Dreams // What would you like to be remembered for?

Being a good person. I like to think I'm nice and friendly and fun and easy-going but that my quirks and Karen-isms are just as appreciated!

10. How You Get The Girl // What is your favourite pick-up line?

Wow, it's been so long since I've heard a chat-up line! I like the cheesy, funny ones because if you get someone laughing it shows that you have something in common already.

11. This Love // What is something you got back that you never thought you would?

Complete happiness, although looking back I'm not sure I actually had it before! Some (usually older) friends and family like to put a bit of pressure on if you are still single in your mid-20s or older, not realising that that's not necessarily how the world works now. I took my time, kissed some frogs and ended up meeting my prince at 34. I don't count that time as wasted, it helped me to understand what I did and didn't want so that when I met Allan I knew pretty early on that he was the one! Now, almost 18 months later, we're engaged, expecting our first baby and preparing to move (along with our four furry friends!) into our first proper home together!

12. I Know Places // Where is one place you always feel safe?


13. Clean // What is an important lesson you have learned in life?

Live your own life, your own way, and let others do the same (unless it causes harm or suffering to others, then stop it!).

Let me know if you take part in the tag so I can read all about it!
