The Self-Esteem Tag

accomplish eso

Hello everyone! How are you doing today?

I feel like I’ve been so busy lately that this blog has taken a hit and not been given my full attention, so I will try my best to be on it over the next few days! My cousin’s birthday get-together is tomorrow… but other than that I’ll make sure to give you all more posts this week! 🙂

Long story short… I am absolutely dreading tomorrow… my uncle’s sister always invites herself around to family gatherings when she’s not wanted and belittles everyone in her path. If you haven’t got a PhD in snobbery or met the queen, then you’re not worth anything in her eyes. It’s sad that she judges people on awards and certificates (that collect dust) rather than the personality and kindness of a person instead. But I guess it wouldn’t be a family get together without hiccups right? I’m sure everyone can relate to this in one way or another!

Anyway…for this tag I’ve been nominated by the very creative Laura. I’ve been following her blog for quite some time now and she always comes out with lots of thought-provoking and beautiful stuff. Be sure to follow if you haven’t already 🙂


  • Thank the person who nominated you & link to their blog
  • Answer the 10 questions
  • Nominate & tag as many people as you’d like


What is one facial or physical feature you like most about yourself?

That would have to be my eyes – lots of people say how blue they are and even assume I’m wearing contacts from time to time. Or I guess I could say my legs because of how incredibly long they are, but it can be frustrating not being able to find jeans long enough, so I’ll stick to eyes 🙂

What values are most important to you?

I guess I would say being able to trust someone really close to you. Having being let down in the past by the ones you love makes you realise how important reliability is. Showing compassion and caring towards others, and of course being able to laugh with friends is super important too 😛

What is one personality trait that you like most about yourself?

Probably the fact that I’m very determined to succeed. I really want to have a good future and will do pretty much anything (other than screwing people over) to get it. I would consider myself a caring person too – being loyal to the people who are always there for me is something that comes naturally.

What is your definition of beautiful?

People with amazing personalities. It’s such a cliche, but looks will eventually fade, your personality won’t. I absolutely love kind, intelligent people that aren’t afraid to have a laugh on occasion. The people that will ring me up at 3 am and come over to check that I’m okay, or the spontaneous trips out to go crash a party, go jet skiing, or travel up the coast. You get the idea…

What is the last thing you did that made you smile or laugh?

I had to think then because it feels like a while since I’ve laughed properly. Watching Basil on Faulty Towers a week ago was funny for me. I followed the programme when I was little and staying the night at my granddads – the series is so light-hearted and hilarious at times! 🙂

That’s all for now folks! Hope you’ve enjoyed reading and I’ll be back again tomorrow with the other half of this post and my nominees. Goodnight and sweet dreams ❤







Liebster award continued…


Hey everyone,

So as I mentioned yesterday I have been nominated by the amazing lauzies lifestyle for the Liebster Award. Make sure you go check out her blog and my answers to the first half of this award!

My answers continued:

Is there anything you don’t like about blogging?

Yes, I find it quite hard to start out especially if you’ve never written a blog before. For me, it’s difficult to find new images everyday when your blog is a hobby instead of a full time job. It’s also difficult to write this blog when my boyfriend comes over. Some of the things I write on here are personal to me and so I wouldn’t want to share them with anyone that knows me.

If you could be a child again for the day, what would you do?

That’s very easy. I would spend every minute I could with my grandparents. My family mean absolutely everything to me and they were taken away from me far too early in life. I’d love to listen to them or go out for a walk or to the playground – anything to be able to see them again.

What was your favourite thing at the park? (Swings, see-saw, roundabout etc)

The monkey bars – I always felt so grown up by completing a whole row of them at once (weird I know!).

What do you hope to accomplish by this time next year?

To be honest I would love it if everything could be sorted between my boyfriend and I. I would also love to find a job that I really enjoy, but I feel as though it might be too much to ask for both, so just having one of those things sorted would make me really happy!

Do opposites attract or do you prefer someone similar?

In romantic terms, I think I have to be with someone who views life in the same way as me and loves to go out and try new things all the time. But in terms of my friends, the more unusual the better! I think the world would be a very boring place if everyone was interested in the same stuff. I really respect a person who is themselves and hasn’t been changed by societal pressures.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose?

That’s difficult considering I haven’t been everywhere in the world, but I have always dreamt of having an apartment in the south of France. I adore French cuisine and the weather is just perfect all year around – not too hot or too cold.

What’s the best clothes store on the high street?

If we’re talking high end shops then I would say GUESS or maybe French Connection or Ted Baker. In terms of lower end, I usually like to get a steal from Accessorise or Miss Selfridge. They have some lovely summer collections in at the minute!
