I’m working on some bigger blog posts at the moment about recent trips to Miami and NYC, so for today’s post, here’s a little get to know me. Enjoy!
1. What is your middle name?
Forever and always my least favorite question: Frances.
2. What was favorite subject at school?
I should say music, but actually it was English. I came so close to doing an English degree, but decided on music in the end.
3. What is your favorite drink?
Tea. What a Brit I am.
4. What is your favorite song at the moment?
Erm, good question. I’m loving the new album from The Summer Set, and also Andy Black’s new album too. But can I pick a favorite song..? (Nope!)
5. What is your favorite food?
Honestly? Anything vegetable based. I’m not a huge fan of meats. I love a good Thai veggie curry.
6. What is the last thing you bought?
Oooh, a Lilo & Stitch mug in the Disney store in NYC yesterday.
7. Favorite book of all time?
Easily The Great Gatsby. Easily.
8. Favorite Color?
Yellow. Which is ironic as the majority of my wardrobe is actually black or navy..
9. Do you have any pets?
My family have a hamster called Peppa, and we have fish too (mine’s called Neil). But I’m never there to see them. However, in the USA, I’m the proud aunt (?) of a hamster called Toph. I walk around the apartment with her as if she’s my own child.
10. Favorite Perfume?
I usually love anything by Marc Jacobs. Recently, I’ve been wearing Daisy Dream from him, but also an Elie Saab perfume I picked up at the airport in January.
11. Favorite Holiday?
Like, public holiday, or vacation?
12. Are you married?
13. Have you ever been out of the country, if so how many times?
I’ve been out of England plenty of times. Take now for example, I live in Massachusetts in the USA!
14. Do you speak any other language?
I can speak French. I haven’t had to for a while, but I can totally get by when I’m there.
15. How many siblings do you have?
Two. Both sisters, and both younger.
16. What is your favorite shop?
Um, I don’t actually know. Probably Boden (originally a British company, but over the past few years they’ve branched into America). I don’t buy from there very often, but when I do, it’s staple pieces that last me such a long time.
17. Favorite restaurant?
Dependent on my country. In the UK, there’s a great little Thai restaurant in the town where I live owned by a Thai couple and it’s the best Thai I’ve ever eaten. Here in Amherst, I love the Vietnamese restaurant in town, Miss Saigon.
18. When was the last time you cried?
About two weeks ago at my saxophone teacher in my technique final, because I was just so unsure about what to do with my life when I ‘grow up’.
19. Favorite Blog?
I honestly don’t think I could pick one (I’m constantly coming across new blogs every day).
20. Favorite Movie?
Anything Disney, to be honest. I love love love The Little Mermaid and Lilo & Stitch (my life goal is actually to hula dance with Lilo and Stitch..).
21. Favorite TV shows?
I tend to watch Netflix more than anything else. On there, I love Kimmy Schmidt, I’ve made my way through Friends, Gossip Girl and I’m halfway through Baby Daddy. I also love How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory. In the UK, I love Downton Abbey and a show called Drifters (it made me cry with laughter every week), and Gogglebox.
22. PC or Mac?
I was always a PC girl, but I moved to America and bought a Mac. Probably the best decision I’ve made for a while.
23. What phone do you have?
24. How tall are you?
A solid 5ft 10inches. Pretty tall for a British girl..
25. Can you cook?
Yes I can & I love it. I feel totally at ease in the kitchen!
