30 Random Questions Tag! - TAG Thursday

Hey Beauts,

So I was tagged by Miyyi to do this tag, so here you go! :P

1) What are you wearing today?
Today I have literally had a PJ day (Like most other days really). I have on a dirty cream/light brown long sleeved top and trousers in a navy and cream tartan print! :)

2) What are you listening to right now? 
My mummabear shouting at the dog to be quiet! :') I was just listening to the latest Shaytards vlog, but that has finished now and I am about to put on 'Rihanna' by Clean Bandit. It reminds me so much of being on holiday or something. It has such a catchy chorus too! :D 

3) Do you like the beach?
I love the beach! Not so much for sun-bathing, but for digging huge holes, sandcastles and playing in the sea! 

4) What is something you really want right now? 
Right now I really wish I had a Mango Passion fruit cooler from Starbucks (Or Costa). 

5) Who was the last person you added to your contacts? 
The last contact I saved into my phone was a girl who I saved as '.' because I can't bring myself to put her actual name there. We aren't friends, I am remaining civil xD

6) Do you have any piercings? 
I just have the simple single ear piercing in both ear lobes. Although I think they've kind of healed at the moment, I only ever wear ear rings when I dress up for drinks or a night out.  

7) What are your favourite stores? 
I'm not really a big shopper, but I love Boots and I love New Look, so we'll go with that! :P

8) What is your favourite nail polish brand? 
Essie, by far. I absolutley love Essie nail polishes! They are perfect and there are so many different colours to pick from!

9) Have you ever failed a test? 
Yep! My French As-level. None of it would ever stay in my brain. But I got a D in the speaking part. It wasn't good enough to give me an overall grade though so :(. It wasn't much of a big deal though, so alls well. 

10) Do you prefer shorts or skirts? 
I wear shorts with everything, they cover your dignity a lot better than skirts do. Plus I find it really hard to work with skirts. You can easily wear a baggy top with shorts but skirts and baggy tops? You just look like a big baggy mess - well I do anyways! 

11) What is your favourite social media site?
I'm really into Twitter at the moment, but I love looking back over Facebook to see how my life went. So I will probably have to go with Facebook right now!  

12) Do you play any sports? 
I used to play a lot of sports at school, mainly Netball, Basketball, Trampoline and Swimming which resulted in me having pins put in my hips - since then I haven't really played sports a whole lot. I wish I still played Netball though, I loved it so much!

13) Do you prefer long or short hair? 
Long, by far! I understand short hair looks nice on some people but why people with gorgeous long hair such a Miley Cyrus, Ellie Golding or Jennifer Laurence cut it all off is beyond me! They were so much prettier with long hair! 

14) What is your favourite quote? 
I have a few favourites but I'll go with
'Everyone wants happiness, nobody want pain, ut you can't have a rainbow without a little rain'

15) What colour is your bedroom? 
Cream. Such an easy colour to work with. If I want a change I can easily change my bedding, lapshade and curtains and my room would easily be completely different! 

16) Are you an outgoing person or a shy person? 
This is tricky for me. Everyone I know will say I'm outgoing - even when you first meet me. But I feel as though I am incredibly shy when I am around people I don't know so well. Although I do agree with being outgoing around people I do know. So we'll go with outgoing. 

17) What is the last text message you sent? 
'Cool, Can't wait!' - To a friend organising picking him up on Saturday so he can come party with me for my 21st birthday! :D 

18) Have you ever won a competition? 
It depends what kind of competition you are on about? 
Our team won a few Netball tournaments when I was younger. 
I won a penalty shoot-out when I was younger too (I was against boys too, haha) 
I won a giveaway over at Birds in Blossom last week too! :) 

19) How many pillows do you sleep with?
Two. Perfect. If I can't sleep I can cuddle one! :D

20) Who was the first person you talked to today? 
My boyfriend Josh, when I woke up. I told him to have fun at his first day back at work since November! Then I fell back to sleep because it was too early. 
He had a long, tiring day - but he loved it :)

21) How many hoodies do you own? 
Far too many!

22) What should you be doing right now? 
Probably starting my dissertation! Whoopsies! :P

23) Can you keep your shoes clean?
I try and fail. If a face wipe doesn't work then I don't bother!

24) If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
I actually really like my name, so I wouldn't want to change it. But I really like Katelyn and will probably call a future daughter this! :) 

25) Do you prefer dark, milk or white chocolate? 
White chocolate is the best! :D So creamy and yummy but unfortunately the worst for you too =[

26) Open a book closest to you and turn to page 13. What does the first line say on that page?
'This essay was originally written in the early 1960's and reflects much on the British advertising experience.'
My dissertation is about product placement so I have a book about advertising near me! 

27) Do you still watch Disney? 
Of course! Disney films are amazing! I still can't believe I haven't watched Frozen yet, although I do know all the song lyrics. 'Do you want to build a snowman? Or ride our bikes around the halls...' hehe...

28) What do you usually eat for breakfast? 
Mostly nothing or if I wake up on time, granola, greek yoghurt and fruit of some sort :)

29) Do you have any pets?
You all know I have a dog called Spence! Have another picture of him, this time from Christmas! :D

30) What is your favourite holiday? 
Christmas! I love getting Christmassy, putting up decorations, singing songs, presents, wrapping presents, giving, dinner, etc....etc... :D This is our houses tree from 2013! 

It's just a bit of fun really, not exactly beauty related but I still love to hear peoples stories!
