♡Hello everyone! I'm here with a very different type of post for me as today I am answering the 73 Questions with Vogue Parody tag. I don't usually do tags but I thought this one had some really interesting questions so it was really fun to do. I also got a few new followers following my first solved case so thank you SO much for the response - and I hope this is a good way for my new readers to get to know me! Thank you so much Millie (@msblife_) for the tag! ♡
♡ What is your usual Starbucks order?
I actually prefer Starbucks’ food to drinks, so quite often I will actually just get food and a tap water haha! In fact, that’s exactly what I have done right now as I am writing this in Starbucks. If I do get a drink it is either an iced coffee or tea with coconut milk.
♡ What does your workstation look like?
In terms of where I do my uni work, that can be a few places. I either work at my desk in my room, in the library, in the students union or in a coffee shop. As long as it’s a tidy and open space, I’m happy.
♡ Favourite Food?
I change my mind on this ALL the time. I really love churros with melted chocolate. Or anything coconut…cannot get ENOUGH!
♡ Favourite Author?
I’m not sure I can choose a single favourite author - rather I feel I have a favourite genre as anything historical I absolutely love. I also love book recommendations so so much, so if you have any please do let me know.
♡ What do you think of open relationships?
People can love whoever and however they want. I personally wouldn’t be in an open relationship, but that doesn’t mean I am against other peoples’. You do you♡
♡ What is your favourite video game?
I’m not a video game kinda gal. Loved Just Dance though…what a game.
♡ Guilty pleasure treat?
Homemade waffles with melted cadburys chocolate spread and sliced banana. Guilty because of the amount of chocolate I pour onto it…but it is SO good!
♡ Favourite movie?
I am the WORST at watching movies…but I’m going to say The Grinch. It’s my favourite Christmas film and I start watching Christmas films in around September LOL. I also love Mamma Mia.
♡ Favourite book?
My all time favourite is A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens. I can remember the first time I read it so clearly and I have loved it ever since. I also really love Birdsong, Sebastian Faulks, and The Tattooist of Auschwitz, Heather Morris.
♡ Twitter or Instagram?
Twitter…I think. I love Instagram as I love photos and I think when used right it can be a great place for inspiration. But I do think Twitter is a more relaxed, supportive and positive platform.
♡ Desktop or Laptop?
Laptop. I especially love smaller laptops and being able to work from anywhere.
♡ Best advice you have ever received?
My dad always says “there’s nothing to worry about until there’s something to worry about” and I love that. I have always been a little worrier but I am definitely getting better at not worrying about things that haven’t actually happened.
Also, I will always remember my media teacher telling me “it’s better to get a B that made you happy than an A that made you miserable.” She told me this on my last day of year 11 and I have carried this advice all throughout A-Levels and University. I’m a gal with big aspirations - but it’s a lovely little reminder to always be kind to myself at the same time.
♡ What project are you working on right now?
Most of my time is going into volunteering at the moment with The Mix. We are currently in a project with VO5 encouraging people to talk about mental health, and I am absolutely loving being a part of it. I am also learning to drive so that’s very exciting!
♡ Favourite colour?
♡ Did you get good grades in school?
I was happy with my grades! But then I actually really loved school haha…lil geek.
♡ Dream job?
The specific job changes all the time for me, but 100000% something in counselling or safeguarding with children. It’s absolutely my biggest passion.
♡Play any sports?
Exercising I love, but sports I am SO bad at…so that’s a no.
♡ Do you have a degree?
I am currently doing a degree in Psychology.
♡ What is your favourite kind of blog post?
Bias, but I do love reading True Crime posts. Also book reviews.
♡What do you like to collect?
I always love taking souvenirs home from my favourite days. Usually I will go for a postcard or saving any tickets. I also collect pandora charms - almost every charm I own has a story behind it so they’re really special to me.
♡ Describe yourself in three words?
These questions always make me cringe incase people don’t agree haha! But I would say caring, motivated and smiley/giggly…I am SUCH a giggler.
♡ If you were a rapper what would your stage name be?
I asked Sanchez and he said MC CM (CM are my initials, see what he did there). I like MC Coco. Much to think about.
♡ Who was the last person you DMed?
My friend, Zoe.
♡ What’s on top of your wish list right now?
For da planet to be saved. Also for my interview on Friday to go well!
♡ Sorting house?
Hufflepuff. I always say I wish I was in a house with more rigour but if we are being honest…I am SUCH a Hufflepuff.
♡ How many tattoos do you have?
♡ What are you most grateful for this year?
Aside from cliche wellness answers, I’m also so grateful for the opportunities I have had with Childline and The Mix this year…love love love.
♡ What’s the best thing that’s happened to you this month?
I think doing well in my driving lessons…turning something I used to dread into something I am excited for has been great for me.
♡ What’s the best thing that’s happened to you today?
One of my best friends, Zoe, got her uni results back and she did so well! I’m very proud and it made my day.
♡ What’s the best thing ever?
Being in the water!! I think I should have been born a mermaid.
♡ Favourite season?
Autumn, soooo cosy.
♡ Favourite holiday?
Christmas. It’s my favourite time of the whole year…I LOVE Christmas!
♡ What fictional character do you relate to the most?
A mix between Snow White and Alice in Wonderland. If you google their name followed by personality, it pretty much sums me up.
♡ Do you like surprises?
Yes! I think surprises are really thoughtful.
♡ What’s the biggest surprise you’ve ever had?
When I was around 4 years old we went to Disneyland and I was surprised to find my best friend Mia and her family were there. I remember it so clearly and we had the best time!
♡ Which surprise made you cry?
I’m not much of a happy tears kinda gal so I’m not sure…
♡ What’s the best surprise you’ve given someone else?
I think getting Sanchez a WWE Championship along with a selection of wrestling gifts and a handmade wrestling annual. He adores wrestling so I was so excited to see his reaction, and he loved them!
♡ Do you like muffins?
This is something really strange about me. I have the biggest sweet tooth in the world but muffins really aren’t my thing. Cupcakes are okay but muffins…they’re just too much.
♡ Do you cook often?
Not really. Sanchez is an incredible cook and he really enjoys it, so he mostly does the cooking and I do the cleaning.
♡ What’s your favourite dessert?
Ohhh I love so many. I really love apple crumble and custard though.
♡ Is there a dessert you don’t like?
Cheesecake!!! Also anything salted caramel, millionaire/billionaire shortbread etc. Way too sickly.
♡ Cake or pie?
♡ What’s your least favourite food?
Cheese or eggs. Unpopular opinion but I don’t know HOW people enjoy them so much!
♡ What’s your favourite condiment?
I don’t love condiments, but any type of hot sauce is beaut.
♡ It’s 4am on a random Saturday. What are you eating?
Whatever dream me is eating…very unlikely to be awake!
♡ If you could teach a college class, what would it be called?
I don’t know what I’d call it, but it would be centred around supporting yourself and supporting your peers with anything mental health related. I’d love to have an anonymous agony aunt session too.
♡ Best animated film?
Peter Pan, my fave Disney film.
♡ What has a guy said or done to impress you?
Sanchez is a smoooooth guy, it’s hard to choose just one. But before we were together, I went on holiday and accidentally left my coconut spray in my hand luggage so of course it got taken away. We met up out of school for the first time ever when I got back and he surprised me with a new bottle. It was so thoughtful, lil cutie.
♡ Best thing to do on a first date?
Go to a retro diner and order milkshakes. It feels classic, it gives you a good chance to chat aaaand if the date isn’t going well, at least you have good milkshakes.
♡ Worst thing to do on a first date?
Go to the cinema. You can’t chat!
♡ What’s the best pick up line?

I love both! But I’m a cat mumma
♡ Favourite sushi roll?
I’ve only tried Sushi once! I did like it, but I’m not sure what it was as my friends just ordered me a selection to try.
♡ What lipstick do you use?
At the moment none, I only really like lipstick in the colder months. My go-to is always a red. I used to love MAC’s Betty Boop Red, I now use Zoella’s Colourpop red!

Again at the moment, none. In the colder months my favourite is NARS Sheer Glow.

♡ Movie you laughed the hardest through?
As I said before, I am the WORST at watching movies. So I really can’t remember.

Movies don’t make me cry. But one film that is SO sad is Bridge to Terabithia…10 year old me was heartbroken

GO OUTSIDE! So much open space, and really pay attention to your senses. The feel of the wind or rain on your skin, the sound of the birds. Also exercise and talking to somebody you trust.
