It’s been just over a year since Hana and I started this blog and so I thought to celebrate the occasion I would do a more personal tag so you guys can get to know me a little bit better. I know I have done a ‘Get to Know Me Tag’ already so I thought that for today’s post I would answer some more random questions in the hope that you will get to know me a little better.
What’s your favourite candle scent?
This is a tricky one as I love many different candles! My favourite ones being from Ikea. To be honest I really like the plain vanilla ones or the cotton fresh ones for the everyday scents as I think they just smell so nice. Although for the Winter I do love a good cinnamon and apple scented candle. You cannot beat the smell of cinnamon at Christmas.
Can you do the splits?
I used to do Gymnastics when I was younger and could do the splits when I was younger but as I have grown older I have lost the ability to do the splits unfortunately. It’s because I don’t stretch everyday but I am hoping that when I start back at University and start doing more yoga and stretches, I can try and get the flexibility back.
What would you name your daughter/son if you have one?
This is a tricky one as there are so many names out there but I quite like the more unique ones! Although saying that I can’t think of many unique ones! I quite like Ethan for a boy and then for girls names I quite like Halley (as in Halley’s Comet) and Isla but that could all change by the time I get to having kids.
Have you ever taken Karate lessons?
No but it would be so cool do like a taster lesson or something.
What’s the first amusement park you went to?
I went to Thorpe Park for Hana’s birthday. For those of you who don’t live in the UK, Thorpe Park is a theme park in England that has lot’s of Rollercoasters! It is so much fun but also a little overwhelming if you don’t like rollercoasters! My favourite ride had to Nemesis Inferno! I would definitely recommend going there if you ever come over to visit the UK.
What language, besides your native language, would you like to be fluent in?
This is such a good question! I would love to be bilingual but unfortunately I was not blessed when it comes to learning languages. If I had a choice though I would love to be fluent in Spanish as that is a really popular language and sounds really cool. However, it would be closely followed by German and Chinese. I learnt German at school and would just love to continue learning that and be fluent in it as its good in the business world. Also Chinese would just be so cool to learn and to speak.
Have you ever had Indian Food?
Yes I have although I am not that keen on spicy stuff but I do like the Kormas.
Is your father bald?
Do you prefer The Titanic or The Notebook?
I think they are both amazing films but if I had to pick one I would pick the Notebook as it is just a cute classic romance story and I know the Titanic is too but I have a slight fear of drowning so it always makes me so nervous. But don’t get me wrong the Titanic is amazing too. I cried at both! I just don’t think The Notebook can be beaten on this one.
What’s the name of your favourite restaurant?
This is tough as I love to eat out! It also depends massively on the mood I’m in. I really like Nando’s, Wagamama’s, Pizza Express, Toby Carvery and Harvester. Any of them could be my favourite depending on the day and the mood.
What would your parents have named you if you were the opposite gender?
They would have named me Peter or Simon. Glad I’m a girl though!
If you have a nickname, what is it?
As my full name is Jennifer, Jenny technically is a nickname but people call me Jen and my mum calls me Jenny wren!
Can you whistle?
Sometimes! Sometimes I make a sound and sometimes I don’t but if I do then it’s a very weak sounding whistle.
Do you sleep with a nightlight?
No. I am a light sleeper so any noises and sudden lights at night can wake me up so I tend to sleep in the dark and in silence.
Do you eat breakfast every morning?
Yes, I love breakfast! It is the most important meal of the day so I try to eat it everyday. Obviously there will be times when I can’t or when I’m feeling ill but I try my best. I normally have cereal or toast but at University I am going to try mixing it up and have a chia pudding with fruit on top.
Do you take any pills or medication daily?
Yes I do! I take migraine pills as I suffer with migraines around three times a week if I don’t take the preventative medication. So I take two different pills and take 2 in the morning and 1 at night.
Have you ever seen Finding Nemo?
Yes! What a great film! First watched it as a kid and watched it a few times since. I watched it last year again before I watched Finding Dory which is another great film. Would recommend watching them if you haven’t!
Where do you buy your jeans?
The majority of my jeans are from Topshop but I recently got a pair from New Look which are half the price and just as nice. I need to get a new pair of black skinny jeans so I might look in New Look before Topshop to see if I can get a good deal.
Do you usually remember your dreams in the morning?
Only a few of them, the ones that make an impact I do. So the really bad dreams and the really good dreams I will but all the average dreams I will probably forget.
What flavour tea do you enjoy?
I can just about tolerate English Tea. I don’t really drink tea or coffee so when I do ever drink tea I just get the normal English Tea.
There you have it, my 20 Questions you have never been asked before Tag. It was actually really fun to answer a bunch of random questions and I hope that you had fun getting to know me a little bit better.
I hope you have a great week and we will be back again with another blog post soon,
