1989 Tag - Get to Know Me


Hey everyone!

As you probably know I'm a very (very very) big fan of Taylor Swift. She's so sweet, funny and inspiring, and I really don't understand why she gets so much shit for singing about her past boyfriends.

Anyway, I found this tag on Samantha's blog (Darling We're Adventurers), and I thought it was so cute and original that I'd do it. Also, it would help you get to know me a bit better, and as I luuurve personal posts, maybe you do too!

1. Welcome to New York - If you could live in any city, which would it be and why?
You can probably tell from my blog that I really love travelling, and I therefore want to live in so many different cities. New York, Sydney, Paris, Brighton, San Fransisco just to name a few! I'm not the type of person who likes to stay in one place for too long, so I can see myself moving around quite a lot in the future.

2. Blank Space - What is something that everyone thinks is true about you, but actually is not?
People for some reason think that I'm the least athletic and out-of-shape person they'll ever meet, but to be honest, it's not really true. I swim and I do yoga, and I'm not that weak, but I've been labelled as it and people 'tease' me for quite a lot, which annoys me.

3. Style - What is one item in your closet that makes you feel unstoppable?
Hmm... I wouldn't say I have one specific garment, but I have a dark red skater skirt that I like to wear with a stripy monochrome tank top, which I would say makes me feel unstoppable. I've been told I look like Taylor Swift while wearing it, and that can never be a bad thing, can it?

4. Out of the Woods - What is one thing you're afraid of?
I actually consider myself quite a fearless person, which is something I really pride myself in. One of my main petty fears though, is heights. I'm not at all afraid if I know there's no chance of me falling off, like standing at the top of Empire State Building doesn't affect me at all. The times heights scare me are when I know there is an increased risk of me falling off, or if I'm meant to jump off I might be scared.

5. All You Had To Do Was Stay - Who is someone you wish was still in your life?
at the moment, I can't really pinpoint one specific person. My best friend lives overseas and so I wish she lived closer and we got to spend more time together, but luckily she is still in my life.

6. Shake It Off - What is something you had to shake off?
I've made a post all about this, but I get 'teased' quite a lot by my friends. I put it in quotation marks because I know it's out of affection and none of them mean to hurt me, but it does hurt my feelings. I've had to shake off some of the comments they've made about me, because although none of them have been directly mean, they have hurt my confidence.

7. I Wish You Would - What is something that you would like to happen right now?
Realistically, I would probably choose to end world hunger or world peace, but if I were to indulge in my selfish side, I'd definitely choose to make a best friend. I do have friends, but I feel like I'm nobody's favourite, and I think it would be very comforting to have someone like that. I'm not really fussy as to whether they'd be a 'real-life' friend or someone I met online, as I think online friends can be great as you don't have to hide any aspects of who you are.

8. Bad Blood - Have you ever had someone stab you in the back?
I can't say I have, to be honest. At least not in a big scale in a way that has hurt me, or perhaps I just don't remember.

9. Wildest Dreams - What would you like to be remembered for?
I'd most like to be remembered for being the girl who always did the right thing and stood up for herself and others. I'm very big on equal rights for everyone and that everyone deserves to be treated well, and it physically pains me to see someone sad. I'd like to know that I've impacted someone's life for the better, no matter how small that affect may be.

10. How You Get The Girl - What's your favourite pick up line?
I don't really do pick up lines, but I have a few Harry Potter related ones that make me laugh. "Have you had some Felix Felicis? Because you're about to get lucky." -is one of my favourites, but I enjoy all of them!

11. This Love - What is one thing you got back that you never thought you would?
To be honest, I never thought I'd get back the friendship I have with a friend of mine. Nothing had really gone wrong between us, but we live in different places and hadn't spoken in almost a year. One day she texted me something completely random out of the blue, and when we reunited, it felt like nothing at all had changed.

12.  I Know Places - Where is one place you always feel safe?
One place where I always feel comfortable and safe is where my grandparents live in England. We go every so often, and I absolutely love it there. I feel so at home and content, and I'd do anything to live there.

13. Clean - What's an important lesson you have learned in life and how did you learn it?
I've learned that I shouldn't let what anyone else thinks of me define me. I decide who I am, and no one else has anything to do with that. I'm pretty sure I learnt
this from tumblr, which sounds stupid, but tumblr is a community that is so full of motivation and self love that it really encourages me.

Those are all the songs in this tag, and I really enjoyed doing it. I hope you did too, and maybe you got to know me a bit better! I'd love to know what your favourite track off 1989 is, because I just can't decide!

  1. I love this tag - it's such a unique idea! And I loved reading through your answers too. My favourite track from 1989 is Style, for definite! x

    1. I love Style, it's so catchy and to be honest, makes me feel like such a badass!

  2. This is such an original idea for a post and I adored all of your answers. They were honestly so interesting! I especially like the answer at the end about not letting anyone else define you. I think I should take a leaf out of your book on that because I think I do that too much. My favourite song probably has to be Wildest Dreams or Blank Space xxx


    1. Thank you! I love those songs too, and good luck! I still struggle a lot with it, but I'd recommend making a tumblr if you don't have one already!

  3. This is such a great post!! I would love to do this tag, it is such a sweet and original post 🌸
