11 Random facts about me

I am deathly afraid of moths (though I feel as though I’ve mention this one somewhere before)

Until this year I never really watch T.V other than adult cartoons.

I’ll eat anything chocolate

I have three cats but want more in the future. (I highly doubt my boyfriend could cope with another cat in the around though!)

It’s no secret that I LOVE purple. But I also really like the colours Green and Blue.

I love books! But when I was a teen you would only ever find me reading things to do with vampires, werewolves and anything supernatural/paranormal.

I LOVE baking but HATE cooking.

I’m obsessed with anything tiny and/or cute. If it’s small I’ll more than likely impulse buy it and regret it later while taking loads of pictures of it…

When I was younger I used to refused to wear shoes unless they had some kind of heel that made that click/clomp sound as you walked by.

In truth, at heart, I’m still that little girl that only wants to wear loud high heels but now with my anxiety I can’t handle it as I feel it draws far too much attention to me.

And, lastly, I’m not at all an interesting person ๐Ÿ™‚ .

11 Questions by Hannah

(1) If you could wake up in any fictional world, where would it be?

Any fictional world that has a unicorn. If I ever got to meet one, I’m pretty sure I’d become the happiest person alive.

(2) You can suddenly talk to just one species of animal, which would it be?

Umm, Cats. Purely because I’d really love to know what my cats are trying to say to me all the time.

(3) What’s the first memory you can remember?

Umm, being about five/six and running off to the skate park to do some skating, before venturing out into the “forbidden” Woods. I can’t really remember why everyone parents told us not to go in there, I loved it over there and even ended up creating my own little den for me and my friends when I was little older.

(4) What type of decor do you really need more of in your home/living space?

Books, I love decorating every room in books ๐Ÿ˜› .

(5) You get a superpower of your choice, but you have to trade in three of your skills or positive traits. Which superpower do you get, and what do you trade for it in return?

I don’t trade anything or gain anything because my anxiety wouldn’t let me handle having a superpower.

(6) If you could only watch one movie ever again for the rest of your life, which would it be?

School of Rock without even thinking about it!

(7) Think back to your favourite place you’ve ever been. Where was it. and why did you love it so much?

The woods. Because it’s full of nature, animals, insects and critters, colours, peaceful sounds and usually no people.

(8) What are your most important goals that you’re focusing on right now?

  • Helping others through my blog
  • Writing my novel
  • Getting my candles out there into the world
  • Growing my blog and social media’s
  • Continue learning more about certain mental health topics
  • Gaining some control over my anxiety and depression
  • Keep focusing on getting healthier
  • Getting myself to the point I can up my yoga practice and do more demanding positions
  • Reconnecting with myself
  • Not to loose myself through my mental health again
  • Continue re-learning to do all the things I used to love, e.g, Reading a lot more, writing my own poems and lyrics again, drawing again, playing the piano/keyboard again and focusing more on the things that use to give me joy
  • And just in general to make it through each month without giving up or giving in.

(9) Would you rather never eat your favourite food again or never see your favourite animal again?

Never eat my favourite food again, I don’t have a great relationship with food as it is, but I do with my pets. I couldn’t bare not seeing them ever again!

(10) If you could learn any language, which would it be and why?

Gaelic, I’m not actually sure why.

(11) What’s a difficult lesson learnt in life that you’re now grateful for?

Not to judge a book by its cover. Which goes both ways, just because someone looks and acts good at first doesn’t necessarily mean they are and just because someone looks or acts bad doesn’t necessarily mean they are bad.

Amy’s questions –

Why did you get into blogging?


I got into blogging as a way to help me overcome a few of my fears, help others who suffer and battler mental health illnesses too and pursue my dream careers.

What music are you currently into?

I’m also into the same songs I was when i was a teenager, I love a lot of different variety of music. Though I do really enjoy listening to a lot of David grey, Post Malone, Carrie Underwood, Bebe Rexha, Imagine Dragons, Pink, Boyce Avenue (cover songs), Hozier, Ed Sheeran, The Cranberries, Arctic Monkeys, Gorillaz and so forth.

I can go from Ed Sheeran to Hollywood Undead in seconds.

Who do you look up to the most?


My mum. Anyone who knows me or has been following my blog or following me on twitter @Tinkableeblog will know my first answer is my mum. She’s always been the person I’ve looked up to, has always been there for me and still continues to be my most supportive cheerleader. But, also my older sister. I remember when I was younger and I always wanted to be like my older sister, she’s always been so beautiful and talented and very witty, I wanted to follow her around everywhere she went.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?


The best piece of advice I have ever been given has been off my mum, ‘You can’t please everyone, so start with pleasing yourself, even if you think it will displease me. Because at the end of the day you are responsible for your happiness, not for everyone else’s.’

What was the best holiday you’ve ever been on?


Visiting my Uncle in Barry. This must have been when I was 6 or 7…maybe even a little younger or older I’m not too sure as I have terrible memory (another reason why writing is a big part of my life). Me, my mum and siblings spent a week there I think and we went to the beach and fair ground with so many colourful and flashy rides! I had the best time that week, plus he had two dogs (brother and sister) whom I just adored!

What are you most proud of?

Finally following through on starting my blog, as well as my childhood dream job of becoming a author.

What’s your favourite TV Show to binge watch?


I haven’t really watch TV since being in my early teens but me and my boyfriend will watch a few shows now and again. We are currently in the middle of binge watching Grimm and Lucifer. I used to really like watching Friends and still watch The Big Bang Theory (I am so sad to see it come to an end!). I also watch Young Sheldon, and A LOT of cartoons. I really love Archer (New season starts in two days!), Rick and Morty (who have finally announced their release date for November), and Big Mouth.

What makes you laugh the most?


I honestly don’t have an answer for this question as said as it may seem. But I have never taken much notice of myself and with my depression it makes it incredibly hard for me to notice the good things in life, it makes it hard to spot the things that make me laugh the most.

What would be your dream job be?


Counsellor/Author

Who is your favourite Disney character?


I don’t have a favourite, there are too many Disney characters to just have ONE favourite. But my favourite Disney films are, ‘The Beauty and The beast’, ‘Peter Pan/Tinkerbell’ and ‘Snow white’…oh and ‘Bambi!’

Who would you invite to your dream dinner party?
