2: I'm an ever-faithful cat lady but I also love dogs. If we had a garden, we'd have a dog running around it right now! I like English Bulldogs and chocolate Labradoodles.
3: I'm very self-critical. If I set out to do something it has to be done right and if it isn't, I will beat myself up about it for days (sometimes weeks). I don't leave myself any room for mistakes. This can be both a blessing and a curse. On one hand I'm always satisfied that I'm putting in the right amount of work but on the other, I can feel stretched and as though no attempt will ever be good enough. It's a vicious cycle ;)
4: I organise every aspect of my life with a list.
5: My favourite colours are dusky pink and mustard yellow.
6: I love the countryside. I love hiking and sightseeing, breathing in the fresh air and exploring. Yet I could not imagine my life without a busy city nearby! I need to learn to drive, maybe one day I'll have the best of both worlds!
7: I'm a bookworm. I'll read anything from rom-coms to crime novels. I'm currently reading Desperation by Stephen King for the first time, it's a good read.
8: I hate ice cream. Unless it's Ben & Jerry's Phish Food, I'll make an exception for that one!
9: I've been platinum blonde, auburn, pillarbox red, bright pink, black and probably an array of other colours that I don't want to remember but now my hair colour is completely natural. I'd love to go dark brown with a subtle ombre but I quite like the light shade of reddy brown that it goes in the Summer. That, and I'm not daring enough to dye it/cut it anymore.
10: My ultimate dream is to live in a little cottage with a big window seat overlooking the sea, with pretty gardens filled with rose bushes and cherry trees and a white picket fence (big sigh!) closing it all off.
11: Summer and Autumn are my favourite times of the year. I used to love Winter but after the gazillion, freezing months upon months worth of snow and rain we had not long since, I'd be quite happy to never see it again!
12: I love the smell of pumpkin lanterns when the candles inside have been burning for a while. And the smell after it rains in the Summer, when there's a stillness outside and the colours of the trees and the flowers look vivid against the wet concrete.
13: I'm of Irish descent yet I've never visited Ireland. It's definitely on my to-do list while I'm still young and relatively responsibility free. My friend recently went over to Dublin and he had a great time, his experiences have made me want to go even more! There's a great range of hotels over there, pubs to visit (how can you go to Dublin without visiting a pub!?) and family I've yet to meet. One day I'll get over there.
14: I love singing, but it will always be done in private.
15: I really want a bicycle. If I could have any bike in the world it would be a Pendleton Ashwell. So dreamy and classic x
