Get To Know Me Tag and Going Out With A Bang.

So whilst I was away I was tagged by two lovely ladies for the Get To Know You Tag!
I was first given it by Elicia at fallinglashes, who is just lovely through and through. I've only recently began a blogging friendship with Elicia, but absolutely adore the way she writes, and the content of her blog- definitely go check her out! Also she lives rather near to me whilst I'm at university, so she knows exactly what I'm talking about when I talk about the weirdos in occy haha.
I was then tagged by Tasmaniaaa at tasminaaa, who is also a very beautiful girlie, she again like Elicia, has a real talent for blogging, and her reviews and beauty advice is definitely something I take on board. Check her out too :)

On to the tag!
1) Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog
2) Answer the questions the tagger has set for you plus eleven questions for the people you have tagged to answer
3) Choose eleven people and link them to your tag
4) Go to their page and tell them
5) No tag backs.

So my 11 facts are:
  • I've only noticed recently that nobody can actually dance well, standing in a night club being surrounded by people who are waving their arms, wiggling to random beats. It's a strange concept. (bar people who can actually dance haha, I meant in clubs etc)
  • There really must be something wrong with me, I continually to make a fool out of myself in every situation..often injuring other people in the process. I don't know whats happened!
  • I sunburn easily...very easily.
  • I have a memory box which I keep momentos of special things underneath my bed, and I love to sit on the floor and surround myself by all the things.
  • I've only recently become obsessed with painting my nails, since I've come to uni I find it so hard to not have painted nails.
  • Everyday I try to drink lots of water, it usually gets to about 11am and I've given up refilling my glass.
  • I accidently once followed a lady into a disabled toilet, she was so scared and screamed "rape"...see what I mean about something wrong with me?
  • I've become obsessed with biscuits since coming to university.
  • I name literally my laptop, my phone
  • I went on a date last year where he took me to a graveyard when it was pitch black, and all he talked about was frogs...all night.
  • On Sunday I watched the sunset over Anglesey- it was beautiful.
 Aaand the questions that I was set:
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
Chocolate Hobnobs!!
But only if I didn't have to do masses amount of excersise to work them off haha!
I adore chocolate hobnobs! In fact, tonight I've been on my own in the flat and at 10pm I decided to go to the 24hr newsagents down the road to buy some haha.

Have you got any tatoos? If not, would you like one?
I haven't got one at the moment. But I'd really love 'love' written in hebrew on my back. Which would look something like this אהבה
(if google is to believed, obviously I'd get it properly translated if I were to actually have it haha)
I'm too scared of needles to get it done, but hopefully one day I'll pluck up the courage to get it :)

What is your one staple clothing item?

 This make me a little sad, simply because I lost my staple clothing item on Tuesday!
I left the club with my cardigan (I think) and I only realised on Wednesday morning that I didn't have it :( I've no idea where it went, I'm pretty sure it must have fallen off my bag. 
Anyway, it was a plain black cardigan, just a simple button up one.
But it went with EVERYTHING, and I loved it- I'd had it since I was about 13 (it was too small really, I just couldn't bare to throw it away)
Do you have any bad habits?
Probably! I eat way too many biscuits, does that count? 
I would say it is probably not being able to stand living or being in dirty or messy rooms but I don't actually tidy my room very often and becomes a mess! I hate it when it's messy, I just always find an excuse not to it!

If you were reincarnated into an animal, what would you be and why?
I would be a Fennec Fox! They're so cute and tiny, but run SO fast and can hide really easily. I think they're really deceiving because of their difference of appearance/personality, and I think I'm like that- people assume I'm some really quiet person who doesn't really care about much- like so laid back. But I'm the complete opposite haha!

Do you think money is happiness?
No way! How can money give you happiness? Love and kindness is all you need to be happy I think. Being surrounded by those you love and being able to laugh like nobodies business. That's what makes memories. Obviously, money enables things like that, such as going on holiday with those you love. But without money people can be just as happy and maybe even happier!

Are you OCD about anything?
I don't think so! I guess I am when I'm on public transport, especially the tube. I hate touching the rails or handles because once you think about the germs, you can't get rid of that image!! So I'm especially careful not to touch anything haha! Requires an amazing balancing act!

Have you even been abroad?
Yes I have :) I have been very fortunate! 
I have been to France on day trips with my family, and to Paris with my school in year 9. I went to Germany with my school in year 11, I've been to Portugal twice on holiday and also Malta twice! Not forgetting my amazing trip to Russia!

Do you speak any foreign languages?
No, unfortunately I wasn't blessed with an ability to pick up languages very well. I learnt German and French at school, but I didn't exactly take to it that well. I picked up some Russian whilst I was there, but I can't remember any! 

What is your favourite nail polish colour?
I think it's Coral! I love Coral colours, they're so bright and happy! My favourite shade right now is Coralicious by Rimmel.

If you could be anyone for a day who would you be and why?
Hmmmm, taking this question to the extreme, and I'll cheat a little as they're not actually alive anymore. But I would be Princess Diana, she really was such an inspiration- all the charity work she did and being such a lovely person! I really wish I could have been a fly on the wall for her life, she did such good things, and really made 2 lovely sons!

Now my questions to you!
1) What's your favourite place in the world to be?
2) If you could choose a celebrity to be best friends with, who would it be?
3) Do your family and friends know about your blog?
4) Do you have a daily skin routine?
5) What's your favourite film?
6) What's your favourite season?
7) If you could be any of the 6 friends in 'friends' who would you be?
8) What is the most exotic place you've been?
9) What's your favourite thing about being a blogger?
10) If you had to choose, would you rather wear skirts or jeans for the rest of your life?
11) What's the most expensive thing you've ever bought for yourself? 

I tag:
Country Girl, City Life

I hope you all do it! I look forward to reading your answers!

Now, it's come to that time when everyone is leaving Bangor for the summer, booo :(
I will confess, I am really looking forward to going home, but only because nobody will be in Bangor! I'm gonna really miss it, the people, the life, the beautiful surroundings. I know I'll be back in summer (and hopefully not in August for re-sits!) but it's still sad to be leaving. Especially knowing I wont see people for 3/4 months! :( 
So we wanted to go out with a bang, and I guess we did. We went out Tuesday and Wednesday.. and they were both such good nights out - sorta bittersweet considering I had to say bye to a lot of people those nights. I've spent the past 2 days saying bye, and it does suck. But knowing I'll see them in September is a lovely thought!
I'm definitely going to do a post on my first year of uni- so look out for that! 
For now, this is what I wore on Wednesday! 

I wont lie- I went shopping on Wednesday to buy a dress cause I felt a little worse for wear. This is what I came home with!
Now, I am aware that in the picture to the left, I do look drunk. I can assure you I wasn't!! 
But considering the amount of pictures I took to attempt to not look drunk, and that was the least bad...I'm not sure what happened!
Dress: New Look (kids section) £17.99 
I got it for less with my 10% Student Discount!
Eyeliner: Rimmel Gel Eyeliner
Mascara- ScandalEyes Mascara Extreme Black
Cheeks- The Body Shop Lip&cheek Tint
Lipstick - Miss Sporty 058 Malaga

It was a fun night, the club obviously wasn't expecting it to be that busy so they only opened half of it- and boy was it warm in there!! All the proper photos taken make it looks so sweaty and sticky in there, attractive right?
A couple of stories from the 2 nights:
When I was walking out of the club on Tuesday, a guy grabbed me and told me I was coming home with him! I was like errrrrr, and my 2 guy mates ran up to him and was like er mate you know she's married right? Guess what he said, "so what?" that's right, so what!! He didn't even care, so my mates spent like 10 minutes trying to prise his hand off my arm to let me go free, how rude is that!
I don't know why guys think they have the right to do that, like at all.
As well as him, another guy came up to me and was likie "I saw you at Bangor train station earlier, didn't I?" I was like, er no that wasn't me! He was so insistant too, and I was like no it wasn't me!! So then he described what 'I' was wearing earlier, and told me who I was with..he just didn't take no for an answer! Again, rude!
On Wednesday, this guy came up to me and started talking to me, which was fine obviously. And then he asked where I was from, I said Essex, and of course got the usual reaction of laughing. They all do- it's somehting I get used to! But instead of asking th general question about being like the stereotypical Essex girl- ie TOWIE. He decided to say "Oh that means you're common then"
Excuse me?!
He continued, listing all the reasons I was common.
Seriously, guys need to learn some respect! 

Tomorrow I have to start on the mammoth task of packing up all my things's going to be a long day!

(also by the sheer amount of times I've mentioned biscuits in this post, you must know my obsession!)

Love, Elizabeth xx
