Happy Sunday everyone!
I thought for a change I’d do a Get To Know Me type post because I realise all this time that I’ve been blogging, I’ve never done one. And that’s actually a bit sad because I’d like you to get to know me a bit better. 🙂 Who knows, I might even surprise myself too!
I saw the Get To Know Me: A to Z Tag on a blog that I have recently discovered: Linda Talks Beauty and knew straight away that I had to do this tag. Go check her blog out because it’s visually appealing and well-written.
The A to Z Tag
Age: People always get my age wrong, but I won’t complain. Looking young has its merits. Maybe 3 weeks ago, someone guessed my age as being 16 (?!!) After confessing no, he then said, ‘Good skin, eh?’. I also remember being IDed before for buying razor blades at the drugstore this year.
Brothers: I have two older brothers and no sisters! In my extended family, most of my cousins are boys too. So I’m considered the ‘little sister’ to everyone.
Caffeine: Honestly, I have many choices here. Coffee! Chai Latte! But I’m being greedy and ‘Caffeine’ seemed most appropriate because I really am a caffeine addict. I have to have my cup of tea in the morning to start my day. Then some days throughout the week, I like to have a coffee outside in the afternoon whether it’s Chai Latte or otherwise.
Dog: I lost my dog earlier this year and it was one of the hardest things to experience. But I don’t regret having a dog, and will consider having another one in the future! They make such great companions and are so loyal.
Edward Scissorhands: One of my favourite films of all-time. It’s weird and quirky but I love it. Remember the time when we accepted people even when they were different? Let’s keep doing that.
French: I studied French for a few years in school and got really good at it (to the point of essay-writing). It was one of my favourite subjects actually!
Graham Norton Show: One of my favourite shows ever. Guest celebrities on a couch without the artificial ABAB interview set-up. It’s very natural and very funny!
Hong Kong: Where my family are from! So I guess it’s like a second home to me. (I was born in the UK.)
Instagram: The app that I try not to go on too much! But it’s so addictive, and I realised through that and this blog, that I have a knack for visuals, layout and photography. There’s so much I want to show.
Journal: A creative hobby that I want to get into next? I’ve been seeing ‘Bullet Journaling’ on Instagram and YouTube which kind of puts my own organiser to shame.
Kpop: The music genre that I like to listen to now and again. I’m not very up-to-date but right now my favourite song is BTS – Save Me.
Learning: I have always had a hunger and capacity to learn new things. There will forever be an inner-geek in me. Oh, and I love deep conversations.
MAC: The brand that I own the most makeup products from. That’s probably not that surprising. My latest purchase is their lipstick Fanfare in Cremesheen finish.
Nights: From a young age, I have always been a night person. I was never that kid made to sleep at 7/8/9pm. 10pm were when the lights went out for me. When high school happened, it just got later and later. Nowadays I sleep around 1/2am. 12am is considered early for me!
Online: I have always spent some amount of time online. When I was in high school, it was namely MSN messenger and discussion forums. Now, here is where I share my views!
Piano: I started taking piano lessons at age 7 and then stopped at age 19 when I moved away for university. I still play now leisurely and am always surprised that I can still play relatively well!
Quiet: I have always had a quiet and reserved nature. I’m actually a lot more opinionated and comfortable in my own skin now. I used to be really quiet and I remember this girl in high school said how boring I was. I disagree. She has no idea. 😂
Riverdale: A new series that I started watching recently. Let me know if you’re watching this too!
Skin: One of my insecurities that I’ve been battling with since the age of 12 due to a major skin flare-up that left my skin broken, inflamed and red. That year was a long process for me but a lot of it has healed and is as good as brand new now! So you see, skin and skincare is something I feel deeply about, more than ever.
Tennis: The one sport that I can passionately watch! I don’t follow this too intensely overall, but I do love to watch it when it’s Grand Slam season.
UCA: The acronym of the university I went to: University for the Creative Arts.
Vitamin C: What I try and take everyday just to heighten my immune system and keep the colds at bay.
Weight: Something that I’m still insecure about now and again. I am more accepting of myself now though compared to when I was younger, thanks to fitness. 🙂
X-men: Gosh, it was so hard to think one for ‘X’! X-men is one of my favourite ‘superhero’ type film series with an actual great background story behind the characters, and I live for that.
YouTube: I don’t really watch tv anymore – you can say that YouTube is my tv nowadays! I don’t even own a Netflix account…) My favourite YouTubers at the moment are: Shaaanxo, IAMKARENO and The Anna Edit.
Zara: My go-to high-street store. I recently bought some new jeans from there and they fit like a glove.
That was fun! I’d like to see some of you take part in this so be sure to let me know when you do or if you have already! ⬇️⬇️⬇️
Much love. 🙂 ❤
