It literally feels like months since I did a blogging tag. But I saw Jemma from Dorkface do an October Blog Tag that Lisa from Oh Luna created and I just had to join in (check them out if you haven’t already!). So if you want to have a little catch up on my life or get to know me a little bit, then keep on reading.
October Blog Tag!
Heather or if you wanna know my nicknames there’s Hev, H and MUM MUM MUM MUM MUM MUM MUM MUM.
What is your favourite colour?
Purple, all the shades of purple. Partial to a pinky shade too.
What did you do today?
Took the kids to Dudley Zoo then packed up our bags ready for heading back up the road home. Not gonna lie I cried slightly as I hate leaving my mum but I’m missing James way too much.
Where are you currently?
Currently down at my mums in the West Midlands, sitting on the couch where I’ll stay for the rest of the evening.
What is your star sign?
Cake or Ice cream.
Gimme all the cake.
Frozen or Moana.
Ooo difficult one … probably Moana.
A night in or a night out.
Definitely a night in. I cannot handle a hangover anymore plus looking after kids with one … no, never again.
Home cooked meal or takeaway.
Depends whos cooking. I love a home cooked meal at my mums but I absolutely adore Chinese food. If I could, I would live off the stuff.
Pineapple on pizza or no pineapple on pizza.
Yes to pineapple. A possible unpopular opinion but I love a good Hawaiian pizza from Dominos.
Books or films.
Films, I just don’t have the patience to read a book. I tend to skip to the end and spoil it completely.
Autumn or spring.
Autumn 100%. The pretty colours, crisp air and cosy evenings.
Flowers or chocolates.
Flowers. Chocolates don’t last 5 minutes in this house with my children.
Full fat or diet coke.
Full fat coke.
Phone or laptop.
My phone. I’m currently in a love/hate relationship with my laptop at the moment. It’s running so slow yet it’s so handy for blogging.
What is your current favourite TV series?
Currently, it has to be Strictly Come Dancing. I’m obsessed with it every year though and love everyone’s talent! Makes me want to join a dancing class but my dancing skills are literally 0.
What is your favourite thing to do in October?
Go on autumnal walks. There’s something so nice about kicking through orange leaves, cosied up in jackets while picking up pine cones or conkers.
What is your current food to crave?
Marmite crisps. I can literally sit there and eat a whole 6 pack of them. Also salt and pepper chilli chips from the Chinese. Give me all of them and I’ll be one happy bunny.
Do you have any piercings or tattoos?
I’ve got 4 tattoos and only 1 piercing, even though once upon a time I had 4. My tattoos are:
‘Love Never Dies’ on my right wrist.
‘Kaydn James’ with a little love heart across my left shoulder (my son’s name).
‘When Words Fail, Music Speaks’ across the top of my spine.
A butterfly with the Scottish flag at the bottom of my back.
I have so many more tattoos planned as well, I’m desperate to get my sleeve started soon, but it’s going to cost a bomb!
As for my piercings, I only have my ears pierced. I used to have my belly, tongue and ears pierced twice, but my second ear piercings got infected and I had to remove them and 1 closed up. As for my belly, pregnancy pushed it out and my tongue, well, it got annoying!
Are you an introvert or extrovert?
More of an introvert.
What is your all-time favourite Halloween film?
The Insidious films. I absolutely love them and watch them every year.
Name your top 3 favourite artists/bands.
The 1975, AC/DC and Post Malone.
Have you got any plans for Halloween?
None at the moment, the children want to go trick or treating, but unfortunately, I’m working the night before and not many people who live around us join in as well.
Do you have any fears?
Polystyrene and wasps, My fear of polystyrene was so bad people used to chase me with it.
Do you believe in life after love?
Of course. Once upon a time, I was madly in love with my son’s dad, but that crumbled and back then I genuinely thought I would never love again. But here I am with an amazing Fiancee and I could never be happier.
Do you have any children? (or animals you treat as your babies).
I’ve got 2 children and 2 stepchildren. My son is 6 while my daughter is 3. My stepdaughters are 9 and 7.
What do you want for your future?
I want to carry on the way I am. Maybe a change of job and a bigger house, but I’m super happy with my life right now.
Be honest, why did you start blogging?
I started blogging to share my passion for makeup with like-minded people. I’d been interested in blogging for many years, but just never took that step to create my own blog. I used to read them every night when my kids went to bed, find out what people were loving in the beauty industry. Then one day I just took the plunge and here I am!
What is your biggest achievement so far?
Just creating my blog in general. Over a year ago I was so scared to create one, yet here I am, still sticking to something I love doing!
What are your ambitions with your blog?
One day, maybe in the future, I would love to blog full time. Turn it into my career. But at the moment I would love to just grow it just that little bit more, work with some of my favourite brands and grow my readership.
If there is one thing you’d like to change about your blog what would it be?
My photography. I’m never happy with it.
Have you achieved any blog goals you set out to do this year?
Even though I set goals at the beginning of this year, I never really set anything in stone. One thing I did say was to get myself involved more in the blogging community though and I definitely think I have, so I would say I’ve achieved that.
Where do you want to be in 10 years time?
Happy, healthy and in a comfortable position with money.
What is your dream holiday?
Either the Maldives or to Disneyland Florida. The 2 dreams.
If you had an entire day to yourself what would you do?
Probably catch up on years of lost sleep, darn children! Or just take about a month’s worth of blogging photos so I’m ahead.
