20 things you probably didn't know about me – tag.
I wasn’t tagged, but I really like these questions so I'm going to answer them anyway. This is also the moment where I tell you that I tag everyone who wants to do this tag too. Are you ready for some Mel information? Here we go:
How tall are you?
I am 168 cm or 5' 6"
Do you have a hidden talent and if so, what?
I always thought hidden talents were things you discover some day.. so I bet I have enough hidden talents I haven’t discovered yet. Something you guys might not know that I have the talent to make all my hairpins disappear – and they can’t be found.
What is your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
People who leave generic comments to gain more followers and page views. Saying ‘great review’ doesn’t do the trick.
What is your biggest non-blog-related pet peeve?
At the moment, I’m VERY annoyed by the fact that some people claim that one of our Dutch traditions needs to be changed, because they feel discriminated. Don’t get me started, I’m getting angry already.
What’s your favorite song?
That’s a hard one. I listen to music all day long if I get the chance and I like a variation of styles. I think my favorite song at the moment is First Aid Kit – Stay Gold (I’m linking you to my favorite acoustic version) and My silver lining. Please, listen to it. The lyrics are great.
What’s your favorite Etsy shop?
Every shop with one of my fandoms in it is a favorite shop, I can’t pick one. I have never bought anything from Etsy before, but I sure like to browse there.
What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?
Reading of course, but lately I’m also watching a lot of TV shows and movies on Netflix. It’s easy to fall into the Netflix-addiction. Another thing I like to do is play some games on the PS3.
What’s your favorite junk food?
Junk food is delicious, but some food makes me feel so unhealthy. I can’t stay away from anything with chocolate in it though.
Do you have a pet or pets?
No and I never had any either. My parents never wanted one. Oh, wait! I lied if you count a fish as a pet (and to be honest, I don't count it in my case.) My sister and I had two female goldfishes when I was younger. We went on vacation and my aunt was taking care of them. When we got home we suddenly had 6 goldfishes and we thought they got babies. The true story was that our goldfishes died and my aunt felt guilty, so she bought some extra ones to keep us happy, haha. I’ve always wanted a cat though.
What are your number one favorite non-fiction and fiction books?
I don’t read non-fiction and I seriously can’t pick.. You can find a list with some of my favorite books on the About me page.
What’s your favorite beauty product?
I have four essentials I use every day: my BB cream, a concealer, my brow powder and a mascara.
When were you last embarrassed and what happened?
I always feel embarrassed when I have to chitchat with new people, because I suck at this. The last time I tried to say several words at the same time and I had word vomit. So annoying.
If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Well, when I’m at home I only drink water or water with lemonade syrup, but when I have a diner I always go with apple juice – so that would be my pick.
What’s your favorite movie?
You know me, I love animation movies and specific: Disney, but there are also a lot of other movies I watch. Seriously, I can’t pick.
What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist prep etc?
Stereotypes all the way. You know who I were? Me.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
SOME PLACE WARM. I don’t care where, although I wouldn’t mind if it was Australia, New Zealand or Bora Bora. I can’t handle cold. I’m always cold, so I need warm weather to keep myself from freezing.
PC or Mac?
Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boyfriend/girlfriend?
I like that my boyfriend does little things so show that he cares. I don’t need big gestures. He has vacation and I don’t, so he makes sure that I can eat right away when I get home late from my internship. And last time he put on some candles. Sweet.
To name some guys: Tom Hiddleston, Luke Evans, Ryan Gosling, Robert Downey jr., Richard Armitage.
And some girls: Emma Watson, Emma Stone, Natalie Dormer (she is so gorgeous), Zooey Deschanel.
Which blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?
With everyone of course, but I’m very happy with the friends I’ve made so far.
