A little Q and A session with Saloca

ultimate bloggers tag questions

Oh, I do love me a good tag post, it’s a nice little filler when you really don’t know what to write and you have to rapidly write and publish a whole bunch of posts weeks in advance…plus who doesn’t love getting to know the blogger behind the blog a little better? My gorgeous blogging buddy Danielle tagged me, so make sure you check out her post too!

Got your brew ready? It’s gonna be a long one!

Apple or Orange juice?
Orange. Easy. Without bits, I don’t mind!

Are you a morning or night person?
Morning! I can get so much more done first thing! Sometimes I actually think if I haven’t gotten everything done by lunchtime then I’ve failed my day. It gives me the sad. 

Which do you prefer, sweet or salty food?
A bit of both. It depends on what mood I’m in! Sweet always puts me in a good mood, so it’s my instant comfort food choice, but salty has it’s place too, especially when I’m on holiday or having a drink!

Ninjas or pirates?
Pirates! Through and through! Aargh!

Autobots or Decepticons?
Autobots. Bumblebee. Need I say more?

What was your favourite childhood TV program?
I remember loving Power Rangers, I think the Pink ranger and the Red ranger were my first OTP!I also loved Care Bears when I was really little!

Are you a collector of anything?
I go through phases but haven’t settled on anything long term! Unless tea and skincare counts?

If you could be any animal, what would you be?
After watching The Lobster this question as a whole new meaning! I think I would be a…bird.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
I would love to have the power of persuasion (because I never see anyone ask for that one!). This isn’t the droid you’re looking for and all that! 

What do you usually think about before falling asleep?
What crazy dream will I be having tonight. My dreams are really vivid and weird sometimes, I’m tempted to do a post on a couple of the strangest ones. I wish I knew what they meant!

Do you believe in E.T's or life on other planets?
Yes. I think it’s daft to think we are alone, it’s practically impossible. But I do genuinely worry about what would happen if ET did come to visit!

Do you believe in ghosts?
Yes. I believe that sometimes, the dead leave something of themselves behind, be it a ghost or an echo, but something and some people can sense or pick up on it from time to time. 

Ever been addicted to a video/computer game?
The Sims. I still am. I go through phases where I will drop every and all responsibility and just play it for days on end. There are just some things you never grow out and it’s such an escape!

You're given a million dollars, what do you spend it on?
I’d finish off Mum and Dads mortgage and send the Mr back to university. I’d buy a house, a car, take all my friends and family on a couple of trips, have a huge 30th blowout Birthday and do some sort of epic travel trek across Europe. 

Do you have any bad habits?
I can be so critical of myself, it's really annoying. I’m the first in line to talk myself out of something that could be amazing and I take failure really personally. 

Which bad habits drive you crazy?
On others? Smoking. It’s a personal choice, but I don’t like when I don’t have a choice. I can easily be around friends who smoke, but when strangers light up in my face it really gets on my nerves. 

List 3 of your best personality traits.
I’m a good listener
I’m encouraging
I’m conscientious

Have you got any celeb crushes?
Right now I don’t think I do! I go through phases! My first celeb crush was Harrison Ford! 

Name one thing you wish you could change about yourself?
I wish I had more interesting hair! No matter what I do it just hangs flat against my head, it’s so boring!

What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?

What personality traits do you look for in a partner?
A sense of Humour.

What personality traits do you dislike in other people?

Are you mostly a clean or messy person?
Mostly clean, but let’s be honest, I’m sat here facing a bin that really needs emptying and I just can’t be assed right now, and a full set of overflowing Alex drawers that are giving me nightmares!

Do you see yourself getting married in the next 5 years?
Seen as though the Mr and my family all read this blog, you just know one of them will pull me up on this one! I want to say yes because it feels right. No pressure on the Mr like….but you know, if you like then you should put a ring on it!

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
The first place that comes to mind is York! I know it’s not exactly far from me, but I love that place so much, it’s just such a beautiful city!

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I’d just love to see more of Europe in general! I really want to do some more city breaks and explore!

List 5 goals on your life to-do list?
Travel more.
Own my own home.
Have 2 kids
Have a dog
Publish a book

Name one regret that you have.
Not working away during summers through Uni. I wanted to work abroad and I didn’t. I also wanted to take a gap year between my bachelors and my masters…and didn’t. I really regret that.

Name one thing you love about being an adult.

What is your favourite song at the moment?
Dancing on my own - Calum Scott

What is your favourite song of all time?
Somewhere over the rainbow - Israel Kamakawiwo’ole

What's your favourite thing to do on a Saturday night?
Food. Drinks. Friends or family. Good times!

What is your favourite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon?
Blog. I love sitting down on Sundays and getting my blog on. I also love going for walks with the Mr, nowhere in particular, just walking. 

Have you got any hidden talents?
I can belly dance my tongue.

You're about to walk the green mile, what do you have as your last meal?
Pizza or Mum’s scouse!

What would be your dream job?
Something that involved writing I think. I don’t want to say blogging because I genuinely love it as a hobby. Possibly something to do with teaching too without actually being a teacher. 

Would you rather have, 100 million pounds or true love?

If you could have 3 wishes granted, what would they be?
I wish I only needed 1 hours sleep to fully function
I wish I didn't have any household bills or rent
I wish I could sing

Ever wish you were born the opposite sex?
Nope. I like being a girl. 

Hot damn if you’ve made it this far then I tag YOU to give this epic get to know me quiz a go!

What was my most surprising answer?

Until next time,
