Hey guys! I recently reached 100 followers on my blog which is absolutely incredible and I thank ALL of you for reading my content. So in celebration of this, I thought it would be fun to do the Get To Know Me Tag so you get to know me on a more personal level.
I really am grateful for everyone who follows my blog, as well as those who read whenever I upload. I know I have not been consistent with my blogging, which honestly sucks, but I am so proud to still be doing this 8 months later. I am finding my groove and hoping to reach a place where my mental health, work, university workload and blogging can all go together. I find that whenever one goes off balance, everything else does. So thank you for sticking around.
1. Were you named after anyone?
I was originally going to be called Jade until my mum saw me – she did not think I looked like a Jade. So she named me after a character is Knots Landing; and that is how I am called Paige.
2. When was the last time you cried?
The 6th of June – I was at Beyonce and Jay z’s tour in Cardiff and during the last song (Perfect/Forever Young) they showed a video montage of their relationship, renewing their vows and children. Honestly it was just overwhelming!
3. Do you like your handwriting?
Sometimes. I do not really write unless I am creating revision notes so when I do, I spend a lot of time making my notes all pretty.
4. What is your favourite lunch meat?
5. Do you have kids?
6. If you were another person, would you be friends with you?
I would love to think yes, but I know I can be overbearing so probably not.
7. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
All the time.
8. Do you still have your tonsils?
Yes I do.
9. Would you bunjee jump?
I would happily jump out of a plane, but I would never bunjee jump.
10. What is your favourite cereal?
11. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
I never do – should I be doing this?

Physically – definitely not. However, emotionally, I think I am quite strong.
13. What is your favourite icecream?
It is a toss up between mint choc chip and bubblegum.
14. What is the first thing you notice about people?
I notice quite a bit when I see people, mainly because I am nosey and look at everything (especially if somebody else is talking to them). Sounds super creepy.
15. Red or pink?
I detest the colour red and I have no idea why. So I will have to say pink, but pastel pink.
16. What is the least favourite thing about yourself?
I take things too heart and I instantly start blabbing.
17. Who do you miss the most?
This is such a difficult question because missing something could be anything. I miss my grandad who passed away a few years ago. I miss my family who live down in Cornwall. I miss the Flake Snow chocolate bars.

Bubblegum, Hugo Boss (Boss Orange), Lulu perfume, freshly cut grass, caramel and McDonalds.
24. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?
25. Mountain hideaway or beach house?
Definitely a mountain hideaway; I am trying to save up some money so Matthew and I can go to one of those woodland cabins! Plus sand does my head in.
26. Favourite sports to watch?
I do not really watch sports, but if the olympics or Tour de France is on I always watch those. I especially like the winter olympics, just because of figure skating.
27. Hair colour?
I am a dark brunette. Over the years I have dyed it purple, red, copper and ginger. My hair colour is currently my natural colour as I am growing my hair out.
28. Eye colour?
29. Do you wear contacts?
I do not – I wear glasses whenever I am revising or reading.

OH GOD what a question! I love pasta dishes, big mac’s, crispy m&ms, almond butter, lemons, toasted baguettes, cheese… honestly there are so many foods.
31. Scary movies or happy endings?
I am a sucker for scary movies but I also love movies with a happy ending… BOTH!
32. Last movie you watched?
I watched Kissing Booth yesterday which was a fun, cute and enjoyable movie.
33. What colour shirt are you wearing?
It is grey.
34. Summer or winter?
I prefer winter because it has Halloween, snow, bonfires, hot chocolates, Christmas and an excuse to not do anything because it is cold. I have enjoyed summer a lot more this year, but the heat is too much for me (plus it makes me feel super unproductive).

From my boyfriend and family? Both! Anyone else? No thank you.
