Good evening to all you blog readers! I’ve been nominated by Emily at http://www.isobellejane.com/?m=1 to do the Vogue 73 Questions tag! Thanks Emily for offering to nominate people! Here are my responses to the questions.

1. What’s the best thing that has happened to you this month?

Passing my probationary period at work and subsequently being asked if I wanted to do more hours!

2. What’s the best thing that has happened to you this year?

Gaining my English degree.

3. What’s the best thing ever?


4. What’s your favourite season?

Summer, most definitely! I am not an autumn and winter person.

5. What’s your favourite holiday?

Christmas, because despite being in winter, it’s a great time for lots of reasons.

6. Would you ever live in a big city?

I’d definitely like to try it for a bit at least once during my life!

7. What’s your favourite ice cream?

Chocolate (note: the Kelly’s chocolate salted caramel one is amazing).

8. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?

Not always.

9. What’s your favourite dessert?

So much choice, but I’ll say chocolate trifle.

10. Cake or Pie?



11. What’s your least favourite food?

Raw tomatoes.

12. What’s your favourite condiment?

Ironically, tomato ketchup.

13. It’s brunch, what do you eat?

I wish I had more brunches in my life! I feel like scrambled egg on toast is the most brunch thing I can thing of that I’d eat around that time frame.

14. What’s your favourite colour?

I used to always say red, but now I think it’s pink.

15. What colour dress did you wear to your prom?

For Year 11 it was pink, and for Year 13 it was a blue top area with sequins (I think) and a cream skirt.

16. Blow dry or air dry?

Blow dry.

17. Do you think you’re strong?


18. Who’s a person you’d love to have coffee with?

Claudia Fragapane from Strictly with her Strictly partner from last year, AJ Pritchard. In a relationship with each other. Because I’m sad and I ship them way too much.

19. When was the last time you cried?

Now that would be telling.

20. Who’s the last person you texted?

My driving instructor! Haha!

21. Twitter or Instagram?

Twitter – I’m not a big Instagram lady.

22. Who should everyone follow right now?

Meg, a lifestyle blogger and vlogger, using @megsaystweet on Twitter.

23. Have you ever had anything stolen from you?

In August, someone stole my identity! They used a picture of me from the Internet (my old Twitter profile pic) and my name to make up a fake Facebook account. Luckily, with some help from friends, Facebook dealt with it. I have no idea why someone chose to make a fake account in my name as I’m not famous! This story really warrants a blog post of its own.

24. Favourite country you visited?


25. Last country you visited?


26. Country you wish to visit?

The USA.

27. First pet?

Does a pet boulder count?! 😂 I had some fish in my grandparents’ pond when I was younger.

Does Slink from Toy Story count?

29. What are you doing tomorrow?

Probably taking my laptop to get fixed and practising driving with my mum!

30. What are you most excited about in life right now?

I’m December, my sister and I are seeing Steps!

31. What book are you reading right now?

Wilde Like Me by Louise Pentland (who I’m going to a talk by and maybe a book signing with on Sunday!).

Twilight (like Emily who nominated me).

33. What are you completely bored of right now?

Not being able to get to sleep easily! It’s always taken me a while to drop off.

34. What’s your favourite beverage?

A milkshake.

35. What’s your favourite cocktail?

I don’t normally drink, so I’ve got no idea of the name of the drink with the kind of flavours I like. It would be a mocktail of that!

36. What would you order at a McDonald’s drive thru?

Quarter pounder with cheese, chips and a strawberry milkshake.

37. What’s one thing you still have from your childhood?

I have cuddly toys, like a Postman Pat cuddly toy and a Beanie Baby I used to love.

38. What’s your favourite current TV show?

The Real Housewives of Cheshire (hence my blog posts about it!).

39. What’s a movie that made you cry?

The Snowman! I don’t cry often at films, but this one always makes me cry (probably due to the sentimentality behind Christmas).

40. What do you miss the most?

No comment.

41. What’s something you can’t do?

Click – I’m not the most dexterous of people!5

42. What are your nicknames?

Ket (nothing to do with a penchant for illegal drugs, by the way – that’s just how it got shortened down) and Katykat (but don’t call me Katie as I am a Kate, not a Katie).

43. What makes you laugh a lot?

You’ve Been Framed (I’m hooked on that show).

44. Heels or flats?

Flats – I’m about 5 foot 6 inches, so I don’t need heels, and heels hurt.

45. What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve done?

A crate stack on an outward bound course.

Fly all the way to America, Australia or New Zealand – I don’t have experience of long-haul flights!

Achieving my career ambition to be a journalist.

48. What did you want to do with your life at age 5?

I put ‘Scientist’ when we had to do a drawing and write what we would be when we were famous when I was in Year 1 (who knows why?). I might have been six then, but that’s from around that time.

49. Dogs or Cats?


50. What’s the most important thing someone can learn?

Be kind.

51. Bath or Shower?


52. Mountain hideaway or beach house?

Beach house, because I love the beach!

53. What’s your favourite scented candle?

Anything with a summer scent! I’ve got a ‘Summer Scoop’ one burning at the moment, I think.

54. If you could spend 3 months anywhere, where would it be?


55. Are you messy or neat?


56. What’s the first thing you do each morning?

Wake up (haha!).

Something like a pain au chocolat, toast or Weetabix (other wheat biscuit brands are available!).

A family friend.

63. At what age were you your happiest?

Probably before I started primary school.

64. What’s the last thing you ate?

A Chinese takeaway (treat yo’self).

65. Where do you go when you need to be alone?

My bedroom (but there’s no lock, so my family can bust in as and when they desire!).

66. What’s the biggest thing on your mind right now?

Now that, again, would be telling.

67. What’s the best activity to do at home on a rainy day?

Watch trashy TV!

68. What are you listening to right now?

69. On a scale of 1-10, how happy are you with life right now?


70. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

I eat so much rubbish – probably something like a chip dipped in a drink to see what it would taste like. Yummy.

71. Starter or dessert?


72. Is there a dessert you don’t like?

When I last had pineapple, it made my throat feel quite sore and almost a bit tight. Maybe I’m allergic, though a sore throat is a common thing to have after eating pineapple.

73. What is the furthest you have been from home?

Hope you enjoyed this post folks! I asked if anyone wanted to be nominated in this post on Twitter, and here’s who liked the Tweet/a comment on the Tweet (by Twitter name). Nominees, you can either do the questions yourself or just revel in the shout-out!
