Get to know me! - TAG Thursday

Hey beauts!

I thought I would let you get to know me better to start things off! Now there are a bunch of different 'tags' out there on the world wide web, so I closed my eyes and picked one and this was the result!

1) How do you prnounce your blog name?
Just how it's written, Elephant Stories and more.
I named it this because elephants are my favourite animal and I am an elephant. This blog will be all about my stories in life and more! Thought, opinions, etc, etc...

2) How old are you?
I am 20! I was born 15th February 1993! So a day after Valentines day! I never needed to cry for being lonely because the next day would be awesome!

3) What Nationality are you?
I am British & a quarter Irish.

4) What grade year are you in?
In Britain it is called year not grade! Haha, silly languages! I'm technically in year 16, I think! Which is my third and final year at University.

5) Do you have a job?
I do and I don't. It's a job where I work roughly February-October and then I'm jobless and have to apply for the job back. I absolutely love my job, working on the rides and recommend it highly. It's very social! I work at the theme park, Alton Towers! Such a fun job!

6) What is your eye colour?
My eye colour is blue!

7) What is your natural hair colour?
When I was younger it was blonde like in this image and slowly as I've grown up it's gone more of a mousy brown shade.

8) What type of skin do you have?
Normal to combination. My T-zone can never make up it's mind on whether it wants to be oily, normal or dry.

9) Do you have freckles?
I always say no to this question, but they randomly appear every summer without me knowing and disappear again in the winter months!

10) Do you/did you have braces?
Yep, for a whole 18 months. Painful they are.

11) What is your favourite perfume to wear?
Lovely by Sarah Jessica-Parker
Cherish by Ghost
Juicy Coture by Juicy Coture
Turquatic by MAC
Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift
Wonderstruck Enchanted by Taylor Swift

I absolutely LOVE perfumes. These are a few of my favourites as I really can't just pick one >.<

12) How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? 
That depends on what I'm doing! Anywhere from 5minutes+

5 minutes if I shower the night before and get everything ready the night before
15 minutes if I'm doing minimal make-up and got things ready the night before + snooze alarm once
1 hour if I need to shower
1 hour 30 minutes if I need to shower, do make-up and get things ready

13) Whats your favourite colour?

14) Heels or Flats?
Flats, Flats, Flats with the occasional heel on a night out. I'm already 5ft9 so I wear heels when towering above everyone else seems fun!

15) Gold or Silver
White gold / silver

16) Do you have a boyfriend?
Yep, I do and I love him to bits! We've been together 3 years come April 4th 2014.

17) Do you have any siblings?
A brother named Peter, he's a year younger than me.

18) Do you have any pets? 
Yeah! The cutest dog ever! He's a mongrel, but we love him.
Here is Spence!

19) Have you ever been out of the country?
I've been to a few places,
America, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Majorca & a couple others. Travelling is fuuuuuuuuuuuuun!

20) What is something that makes you nervous?
I really hate being in crowded places. I'm also really nervous about losing the person/people I'm with in busy areas too.

So now you know me better, let me get to know you better! I tag you! Once you're done, write your blog name/link/thing down in the comments and I'll come and check your blog out! :)

Be happyBe beautiful and Be YOU!
Ellie, xx
