More About Me

Infinity Award – 2 tag posts in 1!

I have been nominated for the Infinity Dreams Awards by some of my favourite bloggers! I thought I would put them together in one big learn-more-about-Tina post! It’s a long one, but an easy read.

Thanks to
Kelly at This, Tatt And The Other
Hailey at The Undateable Girl’s Diary

I love their blogs so much that it’s an honour they would think of me as a person to nominate!

Infinity Dreams Award

Here are the rules:

  • Thank the person who tagged you for this award
  • give us 11 facts about you.
  • answer 11 questions the blogger who tagged you asked.
  • make 11 questions for the bloggers you going to tag.
  • And tag other bloggers.

Here goes! (By the way, I really don’t remember what I’ve put in others so sorry for any repeated facts!)

11 facts about me

  1. I’m a shorty. Standing proudly at 5’2″ my height gets mentioned a fair bit.
  2. I have a Masters Degree in Screenwriting. Obviously the handiest degree of them all!
  3. I am scared of farm animals. They freak me out, I don’t trust them. Living in Wales was hard!cow
  4. I hate theme tunes. At first they’re okay, but when I’m binge watching a programme I want them to go away!
  5. I have a tongue piercing. It never gets noticed unless I’m in a club or somewhere with UV lights when my mouth has something shining in it.
  6. Even though I say I am a tea lover, really it is mostly black ‘normal’ tea. I love a proper cup of tea!tea
  7. My favourite food is hotdogs! Even though I got severe food poisoning from a hotdog van once,  I still go to them!
  8. I dye my own hair, and get complimented by hairdressers for the colour – ohh yeah!
  9. I work as an Ecommerce & Social Media Marketing Manager, and it all started from saying I could use Ebay!
  10. I have a bit of an obsession with cups, mugs and teapots!
  11. I run my own little gift shop called Buy Me Something.

 

 

Kelly’s Questions:

  1. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
    I think a lot of people have done this as children, but I think it’s still amazing – Ham and Salt & vinegar crisp sandwich…mmm….
  2. What is the top destination on your travel bucket list?
    Bali & Croatia – they look so beautiful, I must see!bali
  3. Do you have any tattoos or piercings?
    I don’t think I want any tattoos, but I have my ears and tongue pierced. Used to have my nose pierced too – twice – both ended in disaster! I want it done again but I’m scared now.
  4. What’s your earliest childhood memory?
    When I was about 3 (I think), I broke up all of my my Mum and Dad’s cigarettes. Clearly against it from a young age! Also about the same age, putting weetabix in a toy train and making an absolute mess.
    I’m sure I would have been told off so maybe that made them memorable.
  5. What’s your dream job?
    I’m not quite sure yet. I always thought a teacher, but I’d want more control over things, so maybe having my own school? So not much!
  6. What’s your biggest regret in life so far?
    Not learning to drive sooner! I still can’t, but am finally asking after lessons!
  7. Who would you like to meet – dead or alive?
    Elvis! We’d chat and sing and he’d write a song about me and give me a jumpsuit!

    Disclaimer: I did not take this picture! 😉

     

  8. If you could change one thing about your appearance, what would it be?
    Nothing. Anything like weight, skin etc is changeable and I should get off my bum to sort them. Anything that isn’t changeable is me.
  9. Have you ever fallen over in public?
    Oh yes. Pretty much every time I drank alcohol for a good few years! I was like Bambi on nights out! And sober, the odd occasion when younger. I haven’t fallen in a while, but it’s so horrendous when you do! This question has actually made me laugh!
  10. Do you have a celebrity crush, and who are they?
    Nobody ever believes me, but I don’t really. I can see that some people look good, but that’s about it. When younger, it was easy, Leo DiCaprio, but I’m over him now. Sorry, Leo!leosad-the-many-sad-faces-of-leonardo-dicaprio-gif-33453-2-260x146
  11. What’s your favourite film?
    I have a few, the one’s that spring to mind are The Dreamers (bit freaky, but well made and thought-provoking? Maybe?), Shutter Island, Mean Girls, Clueless, Almost Famous.

 

 

Hailey’s Questions:

01. Who is your favorite TV character?
Edina Monsoon from Ab Fab! I relate so much it’s awful!

CAPko5eVIAAj7CX
02. What was your dream job as a child?
Teacher! Also every other job ever, but it always came back to teacher.

03. What is your favorite book?
Naughty Amelia Jane by Enid Blyton. I’d spend hours reading and re-reading this book as a child. I might re-read it actually and see what I think now.
Adult books: The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera

04. Do you have a pet?
No, but I really want one!

05. Where did you last go on vacation?
Budapest, which was far too long ago! It was amazing!

06. Have you ever had a personal police encounter of any sort?
I once got stopped and asked if I was okay. I was with my cousin and it was about 2am. They said that 14 year old girls had been reported missing and wanted to make sure it wasn’t us. I was early 20s (can’t remember exact age), cousin not far behind in age!

07. What movie would you have loved to play a role in?
Mean Girls because it looks like it was so fun! Also anything with Julia Stiles or Kirsten Dunst in so I could just admire them.

Of the ones I’ve seen, possibly Budapest, but I love being in Leeds!

        Thank you so much!

        I’m not doing any awards post, but whenever I’m nominated, I answer the questions.

        So here it goes:

        How long does it take you to get ready in the mornings?
        It depends on the day. On a regular workday I need 1 hour and 6 minutes (yes, I’m serious) from getting up to getting out of the door. In these 66 minutes I shower, wash & condition my hair, I moisturise my skin (face and body), I put on my make-up, I blow-dry my hair and I get dressed.

        Which TV show are you most into at the moment?
        I don’t have a telly but I watch lots of shows online. At the moment I love The 100 and The Blacklist. I’ve binge-watched The 100 twice now. Recommended!

        Who would play you in a film?
        Oh dear… I think it would have to be me. I don’t know many actresses who can pull funny faces…

        Which animal do you relate to most?
        Cats! Eat, sleep, play, sleep, look around, sleep some more, eat… what a wonderful life…

        If you could only have one forever, phone or computer?
        Computer! Easy choice. 🙂

        Would you face your biggest fear for £1million?
        No chance!

        Which 3 celebrities would you like at a dinner party?
        I’d pick James Spader, Kevin Spacey and Henry Ian Cusick. I have a crush on all of them.

        Do you think you’ll blog for life, or just for now?
        I hope I’ll be blogging for life. I love it so much.

        Have you finished studying for the foreseeable future?
        Absolutely. 🙂 I finished uni in 2002…

        What was your dream job as a child?
        I had several dream jobs. I think I was very serious about becoming a pilot.

        What’s your favourite snack?
        Chocolate. 🙂

        I hope you enjoyed reading my answers. I certainly enjoyed answeting your questions. 🙂
