Vogue’s 73 Questions Tag!

Welcome back to Diaries of a Dramatic everyone! This is my first official post since the relaunch! It’s so exciting and a huuuuuge thank you to Katie from Katie’s Corner for tagging me in this tag!

I think tags are the best way to get to know a blogger. So the awesome ladies I’m going to tag are Rhaea from rhea.co.uk, Poppy at thepoppyraptor.wordpress.com, and Beth from bethcarney.com.

Without much of an introduction, let’s just get right into the questions!

Q1. What’s the best thing that has happened to you this month?
A1. I would say moving into a new room! It’s giving me a lot more space and I have big plans coming for it.


Q2. What’s the best thing that has happened to you this year?
A2. How could I possible pick one thing as the best?? I’m going to say my ‘spiritual awakening’ so to speak.


Q3. What’s the best thing ever?
A3. Puppies! Always puppies.


Q4. What’s your favourite season?
A4. I think Autumn / Fall, because it’s not too warm or too cold but it’s really cozy too. I love winter too, but I get Seasonal Affective Disorder, which obviously taints the love of the season a bit.


Q5. What’s your favourite holiday?
A5. Mmmm… probably the Winter Solstice!


Q6. Would you ever live in a big city?
A6. Yesss of course! Big cities are my favourites, I hate living anywhere isolated. Even the suburbs are a little too isolated for me.


Q7. WHat’s your favourite ice cream?
A7. I don’t really like ice-cream!


Q8. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
A8. No!! I’m so bad for doing this. Especially with my gym shoes.


Q9. What’s your favourite dessert?
A9. Probably strawberries covered in (vegan) chocolate.


Q10. Cake or pie?
A10. Neither! Why am I so boring??


Q11. What’s your least favourite food?
A11. Ugh.. a lot to be honest! Turnips probably…


Q12. What’s your favourite condiment?
A12. Is salt a condiment?? If it is, then salt. I’m obsessed with the stuff.


Q13. It’s brunch, what do you eat?
A13. Hmm, probably a big fruit salad with toast. Or shall I be really basic and say smashed avocado on toast?


Q14. What’s your favourite colour?
A14. Black! Is black technically a colour? I don’t really care, it’s my favourite!


Q15. What colour dress did you wear to your prom?
A15. White / nude… It was kind of a mix. And then the next one, red! I will link pictures here.

Q16. Blow dry or air dry?
A16. Blow dry! If I air dry my hair it takes hours because it’s so thick, and then it air dries very curly.


Q17. Do you think you’re strong?
A17. Mentally, yes! Very. Physically? Put it this way, I lift about 2kg in the gym. Going no where fast!


Q18. Who’s a person you’d love to have coffee with?
A18. This is such a tough one! I’d say either J.K. Rowling or Angela Gheorghiu for two totally different reasons.


Q19. When was the last time you cried?
A19. Last week, watching Game of Thrones with Aaron. The panic was so bad, I thought the dragon was going to be hurt. I don’t even watch Game of Thrones!!


Q20. Who’s the last person you texted?
A20. My mother! During her work break.


Q21. Twitter or Instagram?
A21. Hmmm… I’m gonna go with Twitter! There’s more genuine connection, and it’s a great places to get conversations going. I love Instagram to though!


Q22. Who should everyone follow right now?
A22. I’m going to say Kalyn Nicholson, that girl just has it together.


Q23. Have you ever had anything stolen from you?
A23. Yes! My phone. But it’s all good, I have insurance! Haha.


Q24. Favourite country you visited?
A24. Probably France. I adore the language, the people, the culture, the capital, and the history. Plus it has Disneyland, so duh?


Q25. Last country you visited?
A25. England! Of course.


Q26. Country you wish to visit?
A26. Greece or Italy, purely to visit the ancient ruins and experience the history, I’m definitely not interested in Greece for it’s party scene! Also, Indonesia.


Q27. First pet?
A27. A little black rabbit who I named Jenny.


Q28. Favourite Disney animal?

Q29. What are you doing tomorrow?
A29. I am working the whoooooole day.

A35. I don’t drink alcohol, so therefore, no cocktails!


Q36. What would you order at a McDonald’s ‘drive-thru’?

Q37. What’s one thing you still have from your childhood?
A37. Board games! Me and my family take them out and play them all the time. Every couple of weeks we’ll sit down and play one. Beats mindlessly watching some tacky tv show in my opinion.


Q38. What’s your favourite current TV show?
A38. I’m kiiiind of obsessing over Reign about Mary Queen of Scots.

A48. I think I wanted to be a singer, how ironic!


Q49. Dogs or cats?
A49. Dogs!! Always dogs. I love all animals, but I have a bit of a distaste for cats.


Q50. What’s the most important thing someone can learn?
A50. That you’re not entitled to know everyone else’s business, or talk about it. Stay focused on yourself, cause your life isn’t going to get any better by focusing on someone else.

A51. Bath! It kind of depends on the mood I’m in, but baths are just amazing!

A70.A kumquat. That shows you how adventurous I am with food. For anyone who doesn’t know, it’s a kind of half-breed orange.


Q71. Starter or dessert?
A71. Starter if it’s a bread basket. Hey, you asked for honesty.


Q72. Is there a dessert you don’t like?
A72. There’s a lot to be honest! I don’t eat or like any kind of cakes or pies or much ice-cream sooooo…


Q73. What is the furthest you have been from home?
A73. San Francisco ! But that’s kind of a home away from home as my mother is from there, it just felt *right* when we were there.
