Get To Know Me!
Updated: Apr 25
So I realise that most of you don't know me
so well so I wanted to do a few pieces where you can get to know a little more about me and who I am as a person. I am quite a reserved person who is very private so it may take a little time for me to open up so I thought I would begin completing some classic "Get to know me" questions to help me open up and to help you get to me know me a little better...
1. Where was I born?
I was born in Leicester, UK. Leicester was where I grew up, in a little village (well, what was a little village!) called Birstall, where went to school and eventually left at the age of 18 for university. Although I don't live in Leicester anymore, it will always be home to me. A place filled with memories.
2. How old am I?
I am 31.
3. When is my Birthday?
4. What is my favourite colour?
White. Clean, pure and makes everything look amazing.
5. What is my favourite day of the week?
Sunday! Sunday is when I make time for myself. I usually take a nice long walk or explore some place new, followed by a nice meal I make myself in the evening and then a lovely candlelit soak in the bath. Sunday is the day I show myself I love myself.
6. What is my favourite food?
Now this is a hard one. I LOVE food. I can be a little bit of a food snob too...I appreciate good quality and things that taste good. I would have to say I have 2 favourites as I cannot possibly choose between them both.
So: chocolate. Milky, creamy, simple chocolate.
And, homemade pepper curry. Green and red peppers, with potatoes and paneer. MmMm!
7. What is my favourite drink?
White Wine - Pinot Grigio. Hands down. However, I also like cold fizzy elderflower, Rose Lemonade, a range of herbal teas, hot chocolate, chai and plain and simple water.
8. What is my favourite ice cream flavour?
hmm...I think I have to go with chocolate. with Ben and Jerrys chocolate fudge brownie in mind. Although mango is a close second.
9. What did you want to be growing up?
I wanted to be someone who helped people and served people. I flitted between being a nurse and an air hostess, watching them in awe whilst doing their jobs so gracefully. I knew I wanted to be of service some day.
10. Do I have any siblings?
Yes, I have a little brother who is 7 years younger than me. We are very close. He is one of my favourite people in the world.
11. Do I have any pets?
Yes, I have 3 chinchillas. Delph who I have had for the last 7 years and is a fully grown adult chin and then 2 babies who I have had for the last few months called Basil and biscuit. They are the cutest.
12. What do I like to do in my free time?
I like to listen to music, go for walks, explore new places, learn new things, play with my chinchillas, eat...socialise, go for drinks, watch live music and live comedy, watch TV, listen to audio books, long baths, bake/cook, some sort of craft, rest.
13. What is my favourite film?
I actually don't think I have a favourite. Growing up, we all have that film that we play on repeat and mine was Grease. Whilst this is still one of my favourites, I wouldn't say it was my favourite...I don't think I have one.
I love comedies: I think I haven't laughed more at a film than Home Alone and Freaky Friday.
I love romcoms: The classics - Pretty woman and Notting Hill
I like hard hitting critically acclaimed films such as: This is England
I love a good thriller/horror: Paranormal Activity freaked me out
14. What is my star sign?
I am a proud Libra!
15. My favourite Music
I love music, it is one of the only things I couldn't live without. I like all kinds of music - RnB, Hip Hop, Indie, Drum n Bass, Dubstep, Dance, Electronic, 80s music, 90s music, Bhangra - anything which has a good beat!
16. What do I do for a living?
Well, of course I am the proud owner and creator of BlissBox which I started in 2019. However, I am also a full time sales manager in a large construction software company.
17. What is my favourite perfume?
I have 2. I am a Dior girl. I love Dior J'adore - this was my Mum's favourite and I have a bottle for very special occasions. I also love the sweet scent of Miss Dior.

I hope this has helped you get to know me a little more!
