20 Things You Might Not Know About Me Tag

By 8:30 am

It's been a while since I did a tag (or anything blog related...) and I've been tagged by the lovely Belle from Fangirling Misses. I like the idea of this tag because it's not necessarily focused on books but on the people behind the blogs. So let's get to know each other! 

1. How tall are you?

*Pulls out tape measure* Hmmm the last time I checked I think I was 5'7 but I'm pretty sure I've grown since then, so probably 5'8. Yes, I'm pretty tall for a 15 year old girl.

2. Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?

*Thinks really hard* Oh I know! I can do this awesome thing with my eyes...but obviously you have to be in person to see it. *sighs* If only I could show you.

3. What's your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

Plagiarism. Thank god it's never happened to me but just the thought of it gets me angry. It's one thing getting inspiration from someone and it's a completely different thing to blatantly copy someone's work, word for word.

4. What's your biggest non-blog related pet peeve? 

I hate being late so therefore I hate it when I'm meeting people and they're late for no good reason other than, "Oh sorry, I slept in." And what I hate even worse is when people make me late such as my family. *takes deep breathes* 

5. What's your favourite song?

Ugh did you really just ask me this question? I don't have a favourite song but I love most genres. I'm not going into detail of my fave singers because the list will go on forever. But the song I'm really digging at the moment is She Came To Give It To You by Usher ft Nicki Minaj. I've always liked Usher and I like the fact that he hasn't gone for the mainstream approach. 

6. What's your favourite Etsy shop that isn't yours?

??? Is it a bad thing that I don't know what an Etsy shop is? 'Cause I've never heard of it before. >_<

7. What's your favourite way to spend your free time when you're alone?

Besides from the obvious (reading) I love to redecorate/clean my room. (Is that weird?) There's nothing like that satisfied feeling after your room is clean. I also like to watch a lot of youtube videos (I could spend hours doing this) and watch TV shows. (e.g. Supernatural, Doctor Who, Pretty Little Liars, Vampire Diaries/The Originals, The Walking Dead, Teen Wolf, Game of Thrones, etc)

8. What's your favourite junk food?

Ah there's so many! Doritos, Ben & Jerry's, Chocolate - Boost, KitKat (most Cadbury), Grainwaves and heaps more.

9. Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

Nope I don't have any pets sadly. I had a rabbit called Chestnut once...

10. What are your number one favourite nonfiction and fiction books?

I don't ever read non-fiction unless you count a textbook and I can assure you have no favourites of them. Fiction wise...there's so many. (I take it you can already sense that I am a very indecisive person) I love books such as Percy Jackson, Throne of Glass, Shatter Me, Starcrossed and many, many, many (is that enough many's?) others. 

11. What's your favourite beauty product?

I'm not a huge make-up person but I love my Studio Fix Mac foundation as well as my Mac False Lashes Waterproof mascara! I also have to say I love my Super Liner Blackbuster eyeliner by L'oreal.

12. When were you last embarrassed? What happened? be honest I don't get embarrassed often. I can't really remember the last time. Sorry guys, no funny stories.

13. If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I think it would have to be Lemon Lime and Bitters. I absolutely love that drink! My second option would be pink lemonade.

14. What's your favourite movie?

*sighs* Enough with the favourite questions! Obviously I can't answer these!!! My favourite movies are most Marvel movies as I love anything and everything to do with Avengers. 

15. What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist prep etc.?

I don't really know how to answer this question because we don't really have this in Australian schools. I feel like American movies make such a big deal out of social class when really it's not actually like this. Since I like books so much I would be put in the nerd category right? But I am friends with a lot of people so I don't know.

16. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

I would love to live somewhere in America simply because it seems like all the good authors live there but I love Australia so much! I wouldn't mind trying out Melbourne but it gets so cold there!!!

17. PC or Mac?

Mac for the win! I used to have a Toshiba but my school is Apple friendly so lets just say I've converted!

18. Last romantic gesture from a crush, day, boy/girlfriend?

*chokes on water* Romantic gesture? Oh no no no no! I've never really had a crush either. I'm just fine with my lovely book boyfriends!

19. Favourite celeb?

I'm not into following the whole celeb craze but I have to say that one of my top faves would have to be Jensen Ackles from Supernatural. Have you seen him? Who can resist that?

20. What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?

I'm already best friends with Sunny @ A Sunny Spot Blog that's no secret there. But I secretly want to be best friends with Jeann @ Happy Indulgence, Laura @ Laura Plus Books, Vivienne @ This Book Saved My Life, Joy @ Thoughts by J , Kelly @ Diva Book Nerd and Mands @ The Bookish Manicurist. Also I'd love to BF's with the girl who tagged me, Belle from Fangirling Misses!

I tag all of you lovely ladies!

So this was a bit of a long post but I'd love to hear what you think? Do we have anything in common?


  1. We already are best friends! I really want to start watching Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries. Also you have read Starcrossed?!? I don't know anyone who is a fan of that series, its one of my faves

  2. Oh pssscht, we're basically bestfriends, you're one of the bloggers that I've met up with the most in real life <3 <3 So many wonderful answers, we basically watch the exact same shows :D :D Thanks for tagging me lovely, I'll get onto this right away!

  3. Consider us BFF's :D I love coming to visit <3

    Wow, you ARE tall for only 15. I was around the same height at your age and ended up being 5'11. I've got a bottle of pink lemonade in my pantry, I bought it wanting to try it but haven't popped it in the fridge yet. I only bought it because it was a pink drink. I don't even like lemonade! :D

    Awesome tag poppet, thanks for tagging me. Really looking forward to it <3

  4. Yaayyy besties! ;) I seriously want to go to one of these Aussie blogger events and meet y'all! I'd die of happiness :D
    Dudeee you're so tall! I'd probably only come up to your shoulder o.O
    Doritos buddies lol!!
    Eeeee I love lemon lime and bitters! Yuuuuummm! *licks lips*
    I totally get what you mean! I've never ever gone to a author signing, and I'm seriously jealous of Americans 'cause they get so many happening all the time it's just NOT FAAIRR!! ;( I feel so isolated lol!
    Bahahaha that's exactly what I was thinking with 18 ;P

  5. Oh, this is such a great tag! EEEEEP AVENGERS <3<3<3<3 *intense fangirling screeches* Do I have your permission to do this tag as well? :)

  6. You have to watch Supernatural (be warned, there are 10 seasons) and Vampire Diaries. Starcrossed is soooo good, it's definitely one of my faves.

  7. Wow you're really tall too! I'm hoping I don't grow anymore because I like my height at the moment. Yummm I'm jealous, I could totally do with a pink lemonade. You have to try it out!!!

  8. Yes you have to come to some events! I would be awesome to meet you.

  9. Of course you can do this tag! I was going to add you but I already had so many people. Ah I love Avengers, one day we'll have to have a major fangirling sesh.

  10. OMGGG Jensen Ackles is definitely one of my celeb crushes as well, I have followed Supernatural from the start and YES. You can't resist. Awwww you are so lovely for saying you would like to my bloggy best friend <3 that is sweet. I love Avenger movies as well, they are fantastic and so exciting. You are super tall Francoise!

  11. I think it should be illegal to look that good. Jensen words to describe his beautifulness. he definitely tops my list of celeb crushes. I'm currently up to season 8 of Supernatural so I'm slowly getting up to date. I love the Avengers, I went through a major Marvel phase last year. It was crazy!
