Tag | You're It!

Tag's aren't something I do often but every now and then I don't mind doing one or two. I've seen this tag floating around so big thanks to Sal who tagged me! Check out her blog here.

I was also tagged by the lovely and gorgeous Helen! Check out her blog here.

I'll be answering both sets of questions that they have set me but only creating one set myself and only tagging 11 people.

The Rules

Answer the 11 questions set.
Set 11 questions for the people you tag.
Mention the blog that tagged you.

Sal's Questions for me

1. What do you like most about blogging?
I love the friendships you make. I've made so many strong friends via blogging and one of my best friends lives down the road from me and blogging brought us closer together. Recently I've really realised just how nice these friends I've made are. I won't mention any names here, check out all the people I tag. I may not have met my blogging friends but I am really close to some of them. 

2. What do you like least about blogging?
The one thing about blogging that really gets to me is people asking you to follow their blog, especially in the comments. Just above or below the comment box I specifically say to people not to ask me to follow their blog but people still do it. Its just so frustrating and annoying. That's definitely the thing that I dislike the most, other than the bitching obviously.

3. What are your ambitions with blogging?
I want to still be blogging in 5 years time. Blogging is what I love and I can't imagine me not doing it. I don't know where my blog will go, I can only wish that I become a better blogger and that my blog grows with me. I can't wait to see what the future brings for my blog.

4. What is your favourite winter time product?
This is super difficult to answer! I'm going to go with Lip Balm. My lips are dry a lot anyway so winter makes it worse so without lip balm my lips would not be looking very nice! Specifically I really like Nivea and EOS Lip Balms.

5. What are your goals in life?
I want to be happy. I don't have any massive goals for life, happiness is all I need. I guess I want to have a job that I enjoy and at least 1 cat. Not too exciting but I'd like to be happy.

6. Your worst makeup fail?
I can remember I used to wear a lot of blush, too much infact. That has to be my biggest fail, having bright pink cheeks that stand out in a dark room is not a look that I desire to have again.

7. Favourite snack, favourite food and favourite comfort food?
My favourite snack is Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, not the healthiest of options but boy do I love them! I cannot think of my absolute favourite food but I do love Mince Beef and Onion Pie, Chinese and Pesto Pasta. My favourite comfort food is chocolate, I'll eat just about any chocolate apart from mint or orange chocolate. 

8. How much time do you spend on blogging in a week/month?
Well I spend one day on the weekend taking pictures, editing and then typing up posts for the week following that. Then if I have a bit of time during the week I'll try and write a post or two. I read blogs everyday. I spend a lot of time blogging mainly because of my back, I can't do much else. I enjoy blogging though a lot so I like that I can spend so much time doing it.

9. Besides blogging, what are your hobbies?
Honestly, I don't have many hobbies if any aha! Is shopping a hobby? I can't play sports, my back is restricting me from doing much so I suppose shopping and blogging are my hobbies at the moment. That doesn't bother me though. I do like tidying and cleaning though. Just stamp weirdo on my head right now!

10. What do you do for a living?
Nothing. I did have a paper round but had to quit. 

11. What is your favourite nail polish brand and why?
I really love Essie, the formula is great, it dries quickly and it lasts well on my nails. I also really like models own nail polishes, again the formula is marvellous. I do find the Models Own ones chip quicker than Essie ones though, but they are cheaper.

Helen's Questions for Me

1. What is your main blogging goal?
This is similar to a question that Sal asked. My main goal is to continue to enjoy blogging and to still be blogging in the future. I want to be happy blogging and I want to have followers who enjoy reading my blog. I'm just excited to see what the future holds for my blog.

Do you have any pets and what are they called?
I have two cats and I adore them. I've done a whole post about them here. I have one female cat called Marmite and one male cat called Bruiser who just so happens to be Marmite's son. She had 4 kittens a few years back. Her nickname is saggy belly as having kittens has left her a bit out of shape! We love her really. Bruiser has many nicknames: fluffball of doom, theodore and my brother calls him fat cat sometimes. Again we love him to bits.

What's your favourite sweet thing to eat?
I'm really liking Jelly at the moment. Also though I love Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.

What's your favourite book called?
My favourite book(s) is the Wishing Chair Series by Enid Blyton. Yes they are childrens books and I'm not ashamed. Enid Blyton is a great author and despite being 15 the series always captures my imagination and I could sit and read it for hours.

If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?
Honestly, I'd be in hospital having my operation. There's no point lying and saying America or something.

What is your favourite beauty product and why?
At the moment its my Revlon Balm Stains or my MAC Lipstick in Lovelorn. Both are great lip products, very different but I'd really recommend both.

If you could only wear eye makeup or lip products for the rest of your life which one would you choose?
This is difficult as I think my eyes look a lot better with mascara but at the moment I've been loving lip products! I really can't pick.

What's your favourite piece of clothing and why?
At the moment its my onesies. They are just so comfortable and its basically all I'm wearing at the moment. They are so cosy and warm.

What's your favourite accessory and why?
I really like my Spiked Bracelet from New Look with little jewels inbetween the spikes. I also really like my handmade bracelets though, one says my name and one says Marfan Syndrome.

Which do you prefer- McDonalds or KFC?
I prefer McDonalds but honestly I prefer Burger Kind over both of them.

What is the one TV programme you just have to watch when its on?
This is SO easy! Casualty. Even why I'm so tired I'm struggling to keep my eyes open I'll still stay up and watch Casualty. Its by far my favourite TV Show. At the moment though I've also been loving Hollyoaks.
