Sophie's 'About Me Tag'

First of all, I would just like to apologise on behalf of myself and Olivia, for not posting in absolutely ages! Like it or not, school does come first for us, and at the moment the work and tests have been taking up too much of our spare time.

 I decided on doing a little post for you all to get to know me a little better. I found this tag on youtube and have picked a few of the questions that I thought would be most beneficial and suitable.

Do you have a middle name?

Yes, I do. My middle name is Georgia. When I was younger I never really liked it, but as I've become older, I have definitely grown to it. The only problem is, my first name and middle name are incredibly common, which can get very confusing at school!

What is your favourite drink?



My favourite drink is definitely Pink Lucozade. I honestly can't thank Instagram enough for introducing me to this wonderful, wonderful drink. I've never really liked pink lemonade before, but I tried this drink and it was magical! I don't even do enough exercise to deserve the energy you're supposed to get from this drink, but I honestly don't care. I'm very weird in the sense that I hate warm drinks like tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Although it looks incredibly appetising, I've never really got into the hype about hot chocolate. When I'm thirsty, I don't want a warm drink. I want a cold drink.

What's your favourite song at the moment?



This is honestly the hardest question to answer. I don't really stick with one song for too long to be honest. I prefer listening to a variety of different songs all suited to one particular theme, and I find 8tracks perfect for this. However, I'd probably have to answer with Lissie - Go Your Own Way. I first discovered this song when I watched the 'Safe Haven' movie trailer (which by the way looks amazing). I absolutely adore Lissie's voice and always captivates my attention when I listen to it. I do love Fleetwood Mac, but for me, Lissie's cover of this song was beautiful.

What is your favourite book?



It's impossible for me to pick just one book, because I have so many favourites. I generally think I have more books than I do friends! One of my favourite books is The Notebook. I only recently purchased this book, but oh my gosh, it's beautiful! Incredibly tragic and romantic, who wouldn't count this book as their favourite? Nicholas Sparks is my favourite author, and I found that he wrote The Notebook in such an interesting way that it captivated my attention.



Another one of my favourites has got to be One Day. I first heard about this book through Instagram (omg this app has saved my life) and bought it just to see what all the fuss was about. If I'm being honest, I found the first couple of chapters a little hard to get into, but once things started to develop, I couldn't put the book down. I did watch the film beforehand, so I was expecting the drama and the tragedy to come, but nothing could prepare me for the intense sadness and loss the book contained.


Last, but definitely not least, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. I read this before the film came out in cinemas, so I was completely in the dark about the plot. I love everything about this book; the mixtapes, the characters and their adventures...it was all so perfect. I wish I was best friends with Charlie, Sam and Patrick. And I wish I knew how to make a mixtape!

What is your favourite animal? 


Cats for the win. This is my gorgeous kitty, Louie. I love him very much. I really miss his brother (RIP Joey, you were the best cat ever). Cats are the best, okay. 

What is your favourite perfume?



I'm going to be honest, I'm not a real perfume addict. I do wear it everyday, but I suck at choosing a perfume in the shops, so I leave it for somebody else to decide and surprise me with. The perfume that I wear daily, is Jimmy Choo, which my Dad purchased for me last year. I really do love it. The scent is not incredibly overpowering and sickly either, so that's a bonus.

How many siblings do you have?


I have one older sister, called Jess. She's currently in her first year of university and I miss her so much. The picture above was taken from our holiday last summer. 

What is your favourite store?

             

Topshop, need I say more? Unfortunately I generally can't afford anything from there. One top is worth my entire months allowance! However, Cath Kidston is definitely a favourite. I literally love everything about the store. As soon as you walk in, you are blown away and have no idea where to look first. Every corner is bursting with the most gorgeous, floral patterns and vibrant colours.

What are your favourite blogs?

I love a lot of blogs for many different reasons, but some of my favourites are A Handful Of Alice, Flashes Of Style, Red Brick Lipstick and Zoella.

What are your favourite TV shows?

Oh God, I have way too many. I'm just going to list them.

  • Teen Wolf
  • Keeping Up With The Kardashians
  • Pretty Little Liars
  • The Vampire Diaries
  • Glee
  • Once Upon A Time
  • Great British Bake Off
  • Strictly Come Dancing
  • Americas Next Top Model
  • Waterloo Road
  • Kirstie's Handmade Britain
  • Teen Mom
I'm sure there are way more than that, but that's all I can think of at the moment.

What kind of phone do you have?



I have an iPhone 4S. I am so happy!! I finally got an iPhone in July and have been so obsessed with it. I'm still a technology fail at it though. I'm always texting Olivia asking her 'what does this do?' and 'how do I do this?' I would never in a million year part with my baby (unless I'd upgrade to a new iPhone or whatever). 

How tall are you?

Correction: How small are you? Last time I checked, I was 5"3. I don't actually think this is small and I'm happy with my height, but it is a little daunting at school being so small! You can see here how little I've grown over the last couple of years. This completely amuses my parents of course.



I hope you've enjoyed my rambles and got to know me a little better. Do let us know what you want to see from us next. We do have a lot of ideas planned, it's just a lot of tests are coming up at the moment at school, so things might get a little hectic and delayed. Thank you for reading!
