Get To Know Me More


I thought it would be fun to do another questions and answers post so you could get to know me a little bit more than the amount you currently know. I have some older Q&A posts from over the years, but this one includes some really random questions. If you have anything else you want to know, just leave me a comment and I will answer!

1. Were you named after anyone?

No, I wasn’t. My parents decided on my name the moment I was born. Apparently I looked like a Lorna lol. Although my middle name is named after my grandmother who unfortunately I didn’t get to meet.

2. When was the last time you cried?

This was a couple of weekends ago watching The Vow actually. Gosh that was so sad!

3. Do you like your handwriting?

Yeah I don’t mind it, it’s quite neat and rounded. I used to try and perfect it at school. That was a long time ago though and now I mainly type rather than write.

4. Do you use sarcasm a lot?

I actually do, but not in a mean way, it’s always in a joking way. I tend to prefer to have fun and banter rather than be serious all the time, it’s much more enjoyable 🙂

5. Would you like to bungee jump?

I would, but not by my feet. I would rather do one where the rope is around your waist so you are in a sitting position. However, I know it would make me ill. I’m very sensitive and get vertigo from the slightest things now I’m older. In my mind I would love to though!

6. Do you unite your shoes when you take them off?

This is a really funny question lol. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t, it depends. If my shoes are in their box then they always go back in the box to keep them protected, but I have shoes paired up in places, but some shoes are on a shelf in a complete mess. I don’t really have any routine with them.

7. Do you think you are strong?

I’m very strong minded if that counts, a lot of people call me stubborn, but I prefer strong minded. I do have quite big biceps though, I think I inherited it, but I used to basically live outside as a child always climbing things so I developed strong muscles that have never gone away. However thanks to my joints now, this doesn’t mean anything as I can’t even lift anything remotely heavy anymore.

8. What is your favourite ice cream?

I actually can’t stand ice cream. The milky taste it has to it makes me shudder, so I always eat sorbet! My favourite would probably be raspberry, but I love lemon and orange too! Or even mango, I don’t mind really. Apple is delicious too! 🙂

9. What is the first thing you notice about people?

If we are talking about literally, it would probably be their jeans ha ha. I tend to notice those before the person, however I always notice their face and eyes first on their actual person. Rather than physical things I notice though, I usually have a sense of them and what they are like upon meeting them, which is always useful.

10. What is the least favourite thing you like about yourself?

I think we have all been through a phase where we hated parts about ourselves loads of times, mine used to be my body, but I don’t do that anymore. I only try to be positive and focus on the good things. I guess I over analyze things too much sometimes, but I don’t dislike that about myself. In general I don’t think people should dislike anything about who they are because who you are is what makes everyone unique.

11. What are you listening to right now?

There’s no music, but I can hear the birds singing, which is lovely 🙂

12. If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?

Um, maybe a non existent one which would be a rainbow glitter crayon! I usually like the entire contents of crayon packs and seeing all the colours together, so it would be hard to pick just one.

13. What are your favourite smells?

Again this is tough because I’m very sensitive to strong smells, so I tend to avoid most smells when I can, however one I do love is fresh air. Usually in the summer when I go outside, I can smell the warmth and the clear air, that’s a welcoming scent. I also like the smell just after a rain storm, it’s really clear and fresh. But in terms of something physical, I do love a nice washing powder or fabric conditioner lol!

14. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?

That would be my boyfriend 🙂

15. What would you prefer, a mountain hideaway or beach house?

This depends, I would love both. If the beach house was private then it would be wonderful, but I adore the country and being surrounded by the nature on a mountain would be cool.

16. What are your favourite sports to watch?

I’m not really a fan of watching sports. I used to love football in my tom boy days a long time ago, but I don’t really watch anything anymore. I did enjoy the athletics though when the Olympics were on! The Jamaicans are amazing sprinters!

17. What is your natural hair colour?

It’s the colour my hair is (minus the ombre). It’s like a dirty mousy blonde colour, I guess you could call it that. From my roots to where my ears are is all my natural shade.

18. What is your eye colour?

I think I have answered this one before, a very long time ago, but it’s green.

19. Do you wear contact lenses or glasses?

I don’t, I’m lucky enough to have really good eyesight. Like my sense of smell and hearing, my eyesight is also pretty sharp.

20. Do you prefer scary movies or happy endings?

This one is super easy, always happy endings. I can’t stand watching anything remotely scary, it unnerves me. I always love happy films. It’s why I love romance the most and The Holiday is one of the best movies as nothing bad happens throughout the whole movie! 🙂

21. What was the last movie you watched?

That would probably be The Vow I think.

22. Do you prefer Summer or Winter?

Definitely summer! The sunshine and warmth makes me so happy! 🙂

23. Do you prefer hugs or kisses?

This is tough, I love cuddles with my boyfriend, but kisses are always good. Can I cheat and say both?

24. Do you prefer the computer or television?

Since I’m a blogger, it’s definitely going to have to be the computer. I couldn’t be without it. I do love the TV when it has some shows that I like to watch, but computer, definitely.

25. What book are you reading now?

I’m reading Insatiable by Meg Cabot. Although I’m not getting on with it that well at the moment, which is odd since I usually love everything she writes.

26. What is your favourite sound?

Hmm, anything slightly high pitch really irritates me (besides birds), so I’m always drawn to the lower pitch noises. I love the sound of a cat purring, it’s so heart warming, but I also love the sound of my boyfriends voice. The ocean is always lovely to listen to as well. I don’t think I have just one.

27. Do you have a special talent?

Other than my heightened senses, I’m going to have to say no, but I wouldn’t class them as a special talent really. Although I wouldn’t class this as a talent either, but animals are always drawn to me. They always come over to say hi to me out of everyone else. Even the temperamental ones, so that’s something I really treasure. Oh, I almost forgot, I can sing a bit as well.

28. Where were you born?

South West of England, same city I live in now.

29. What was the last film that really moved/disturbed/thrilled you and why?

I think this is always the same movie, Dear John. It just always gets me emotionally, it’s beautiful.

30. What is your favourite TV show of all time, i.e you’ve seen them all, can watch it over and over again and quote lines from it?

I would have to say Friends, I absolutely love Friends! However I’m fond of Drop Dead Diva, Cougar Town and Made in Chelsea 🙂

31. What’s your favourite way to wake up and what’s the first thing you do?

I definitely like to wake up on my own accord, alarms always irritate me and make me grouchy. The first thing I like to do is check my phone for texts and emails. That seems to be my routine.

32. What’s the worst/most embarrassing CD/Album you’ve ever owned and do you still have it?

I have a lot of cheesy ones from when I was really young, like Boyzone, Billie Piper etc, but I don’t class them as embarrassing because they were great at the time!

33. What would be your dream vehicle (bikes, cars, boats, batcar and millenium falcon is allowed!)?

A motor bike, definitely. However I’m not allowed one. I always thought a golf cart or go-kart would be really cool though.

34. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be and who with?

I have three places, Italy, Los Angeles and Disneyland Paris. All with my boyfriend. I’ve never left the UK though, so I haven’t been able to go on any foreign holidays yet.

35. If you could have any animal/creature, what would be your ultimate pet be?

Perhaps a tiger or leopard. Although I would absolutely love to have a panda and a koala! They are adorable!

36. What did you want to be when you were little and do you think you ever will be?

Still the same as I do now, a designer. Well I did want to be a princess at one point, but I think most of us did ha ha. I was fully happy to think I was going to marry Prince Harry back then. But definitely a designer. I’ve already done things here and there with design, so I hope I could be able to some day!

37. What was your favourite toy as a child?

My barbies. I had lots of them, I used to spend all of my birthday and Christmas money on new barbies! I even had a horse and carriage, moped and jeep!

38. When was the last time you cried laughing and why?

Probably a few months ago, I think it was at something my boyfriend and I had joked about. I think when you have a weak moment, some things that are only slightly funny become absolutely hilarious and you can’t stop yourself. I love laughing so much though, despite the pain it causes ha ha 🙂

39. What is stashed under your bed/mattress?

Well under my mattress is the bed frame lol, but under my bed I have lots of plastic tubs with jeans in. Ones that are in storage!

40. Are you a messy or a tidy person?

I would have to say messy. Everywhere I go seems to look like a bomb hit it when I leave. I do prefer things to look neat and tidy, but for some reason I’m just naturally messy and I don’t even know how I create such disorder sometimes! I don’t mind tidying up and re-organizing when I need to though. It can be fun.
