It feels like an age since I last did a tag post – and I’ve just loved seeing this one floating around the social-sphere! It’s a long one so you might want to go an put the kettle on, even grab a few cheeky digestives and make yourself comfy!

TMITOO much information!

1: What are you wearing?
Navy dress with a whole bunch of beige birds fluttering about all over it. Bought it in New Look last summer and have been wearing it to death for every season - it's amazing what a pair of thermal tights can do for a summer dress in winter!

2: Ever been in love?

3: Ever had a terrible break-up?
I think all break ups are pretty terrible, I can’t say I’ve ever heard anyone say, ‘Oh we broke up – it was fun!’, it just doesn’t work like that for me!

4: How tall are you?
5ft 3 or 4 inches I think!

5: How much do you weigh?
I don’t actually weigh myself, I find it a pretty negative experience. As long as I’m comfortably fitting into my size 10 skinny jeans then I’m happy! If I had to guess I’d say I’m around 8 ½ stone or there about.

6: Any tattoos?
Nope. I love tattoos, but I have a low pain threshold! I could never decide on something I wanted forever inked onto my skin either.

7: Any piercings?
Only my ears, that’s enough for me! I’ve got really tiny earlobes, if they were just a little bigger I would love to have them double-pierced.

8: OTP?
Harry/Hermione, hands down! No matter how many times I re-read the series I can’t not see the chemistry between them. The epilogue of the final book is firmly stapled shut – sorry JK!

9: Favourite show?
Right now, I’m loving Greys Anatomy and America Horror: Coven. Favourite shows of all time would include; Friends, How I Met Your Mother, Haven, Eureka, Fringe, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and the X Files, Sex and the City...I watch A LOT of TV so narrowing it down is too hard! The list is endless!

10: Currently listening to?
Lorde, Vance Joy, San Cisco, Gavin Mikhail and Avicii!

11: Something you miss?
Max! He passed quite a few years ago now but he was seriously the best dog anyone could ask for! He was just this furry little lazy old man with the strangest allergies and loved nothing more than sunbathing and eating tuna! He was a part of the family for 12 years. I miss having a pet around the house so much!

12: Favourite song?
This is so hard! There’s a whole bunch of songs that have special meanings/memories attached to them for me. One that got me through some tough times over the last year or so had to be Ben Howard – Keep your Head up.

13: How old are you?

14: Zodiac sign?
Libra, though balanced is not something that comes to mind when I think about myself!

15: Quality you look for in a partner?
Talking! I’m a talker! They have to be able to talk about anything and everything! And they have to like the theatre too!

16: Favourite Quote?
I’ve been collecting quotes for years, the first one that comes to mind has to be,
“All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them” – you just knew it would be a Disney quote, didn’t you?

17: Favourite actor?
Coin flip between Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio!
18: Favourite colour?
Pink or purple, I’ve spent my life trying to decide!

19: Loud music or soft?
Something soft in the background works for me!

20: Where do you go when you're sad?
To bed if it’s cold outside – outside it it’s warm outside!

21: How long does it take you to shower?
As long as I can get away with. I love really long showers – unfortunately we only have one bathroom and I live with people who have the tiniest of bladders!

22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
About an hour, unless I’m running late. If I’m running late I can have it all done in about 15 minutes – no idea how that magic works!

23: Ever been in a physical fight?
Nope! I’d be useless!

24: Turn on?
A well fitting suit!

25: Turn off?
If you can’t turn your phone off, you’re turning me off!

26: The reason I started blogging?
I love to write and I love to read other peoples blogs. Therefore, I put the two passions together and this is what happened!

27: Fears?
Ventriloquist dummies and marionette puppets. *shudder* I can’t even think about them!
28: Last thing that made you cry?
Ant & Dec receiving their landmark award at the TV Awards the other weekend. Brought me to tears! I’m getting emotional in my old age!
29: Last time you said you loved someone?
Just a few hours ago :)

30: Meaning behind your blog name?
Saloca has been my online handle for years. It’s made up if the first two letters of my first, middle and last name. Saloca in Wonderland was the original name for the blog when I used to blog about Walt Disney World.

31: Last book you read?
Wolf Hall - Hilary Mantel. Been meaning to read this for an age and finally got around to it. I love anything Tudor but this is the first I've read that looks at Henry VIII and his court from a male perspective, that of Thomas Cromwell.

32: The book you're currently reading?
The Astronaut Wives Club - Lily Koppel. Last year I started reading more about Space exploration, mostly focusing on the Astronauts themselves. This, so far, has been fascinating, reading about how the wives and families had to cope with the fact their loved ones where being blasted off into the unknown, sitting atop massive sticks of dynamite, and never knowing if they would ever return home.

33: Last show you watched?
Helix – didn’t enjoy it! Felt like I was watching a bad Sci-fi movie!

34: Last person you talked to?
Good ol’ Dad, I’m pretty sure it was about food too!

35: The relationship between you and the person you last texted?

36: Favourite food?
Crunchy peanut butter on Melba toast with sliced cucumber on top!

37: Place you want to visit?
Barcelona is coming up in a few months! I’m really getting a taste for short city breaks so who knows where will be next. I’m thinking possible Germany or Italy! I wouldn’t mind a city break here in the UK somewhere either, there’s so much of my own country I have yet to see!

38: Last place you where?
Last ‘holiday’ style trip I took was to York. Such a beautiful city, I’d love to live there!

39: Do you have a crush?

40: Last time you kissed someone?
Last night.

41: Last time you were insulted?
No idea. I’ve either pushed it to the back of my mind or I didn’t hear them insulting me!

42: Favourite flavour of sweet?

43: What instruments do you play?
None! But I would love to take piano lessons someday!

44: Favourite piece of jewellery?
Tie between my Chamilla leather wrap charm bracelet and my Swarovski drop necklace!

45: Last sport you played?
Sport? Played? What? Next question!

46: Last song you sang?
Pharell Williams - Happy. Can't help but sing a long when that comes on the radio!

47: Favourite chat up line?
I really don’t like chat up lines! They just make me laugh and I can’t take them seriously at all!

48: Have you ever used it?
Couldn’t even if I tried – I’d be too busy laughing about it!

49: Last time you hung out with anyone?
Went for shopping, lunch and a catch up with one of my oldest friends at the weekend, fantastic! It seems to get harder and harder to meet up with friends the older we get, life just gets in the way all too often!

50: Who should answer these questions next?
As always I tag you all!

Hope you all enjoyed that, it took me an age to fill in but I do love these tag posts. As much as I’m sharing stuff about me with you all, I feel as though I learn a little something new about myself too!  

Fancy leaving an answer to any of the above in the comments below?

Until next time,

Tag originally found on ghostparties (YouTube), some questions modified for the blog!


  1. Harry and Hermione - so true! Did you see JK Rowling recently admitted they probably should have been together and that she knew that in real life Ron wouldn't have kept Hermione happy?! xoxo The perks of being a hipster - Victoria’s Secrets Giveaway!

    1. How did I miss her saying that?? I knew us Harry/Hermione shippers where right all along! Honestly, the way she wrapped up the series felt like such a cop out, I always thought she was put under pressure to give it a cheesy cliché happy ending because SO many children read the books. It all felt so unnatural during the epilogue, like JKR wasn't the one who wrote it, the voice ad style felt completely different!

      Sarah :)

  2. Awww yay! Loved your answers to this tag....Although you may have to convince me on the peanut butter and cucumber thing! lol


    1. OH your missing out! Peanut butter/cucumber is delicious! Though I feel like the only person in the word who thinks this hehe, no surprise there really!

      Sarah :)

  3. Its soo long but its so fun!
    I love York too!
    Make sure to check out my blog:


    1. York was incredible, I'd love to go back! So much I didn't get to see or do - there's literally something to do on every corner! And the, SO many shops, their high street goes on forever!

      Sarah :)

  4. I love a good suit on a man too ;) xo

    1. You really can't beat it! So handsome hehe!

      Sarah :)

  5. I'm also a talker. I would go crazy if my partner was really quiet and calm I think. And also,who doesn't love Johnny Depp?
