Leibster Award Tag // 11 Facts About Me

  1. I can communicate using British Sign Language (BSL), although I am a little rusty.
  2. My favourite colours are Blue & Grey.
  3.  I am a proud Hufflepuff (and big Harry Potter fan).
  4. I love going to the theatre.
  5. I always binge watch TV shows.
  6. I rarely eat sweets/chocolates at home, but have a snack draw at work.
  7. I have never used any Lush bath products, but love their Shampoo Bars.
  8. I go through phases where I love a certain food, but then 6 months later I am sick of it.

  11. Space really fascinates me and I love watching films set in Space.

The Leibster Award Tag // Questions by Pandora

1. If you had to describe yourself as a colour what would you choose and why?

I think I would have to say blue. I love the colour blue anyway, but I think blue is calming and I like to think that I can be quite calming too.

2. Do you use blog props and if so, what is your favourite?

I don’t really use blog props. When I first started blogging, I got lots of Paperchase postcards and little props, but never actually used them. My blog is mainly for days out, theatre, lifestyle posts which means props aren’t really used.

Maybe I could do with some little gems for my beauty photos like Libby on her Instagram account.

3. What drink do you find most comforting?

There are 3 drinks I find comforting:

  1. Coke / My everyday go-to drink
  2. Orangina / For when I need a sweet kick or when I am travelling
  3. Tea / Something comforting for the morning

4. If you could freeze time for 24 hours what would you do?

This I had to think about. There are 2 answers here according to whether other people will be frozen in time or not.

If everyone else was frozen in time I think I would be too bored and also would find it creepy to go out of the house (odd, I know). So I would probably use the time wisely to blog, watch TV and sleep.

If everyone was still walking around but just time had stoped for 24 hours, I would get on a plane and visit any country I fancied. I would probably do a tour of Europe.

5. What is your best memory?

I am going to say my first proper day out with my Boyfriend. We went to the Safari Park together and it was brilliant.

6. How did you get into blogging?

I think I may have answered this before, but it was a bit of me and a bit of my Boyfriend. I has wanted to start writing more and having somewhere to document what I was doing and what I was loving at the time and then my Boyfriend suggested I started a blog.

From there I started writing content and as he is into building websites and doing all the technical stuff, my blog was live and kicking within a month. In April 2017, Steph’s World turned 1.

7. What is your biggest fear?

The dark. I just hate it.

8. What would be your idea of a nightmare holiday?

I think being somewhere where there was nothing to see or do and had no internet or phone signal. I think I would be bored. I love beach holidays though, but sightseeing is more my kind of holiday.

9. How would you define spirituality?

This is a very deep question and not one I have thought about. Maybe I would define it as there being a greater being or sense out there that gives us meaning and a sense of being. Kind of controlling the way we act, a moral compass of sorts.

10. What do you love most about blogging?

I love everything about blogging. I would say the thing I love the most is the people I have met along the way. The blogging community are like a big family and they are all so supportive. I have also loved the way that blogging gets me out and about. Before I started blogging, I enjoyed going to places of course; but how much detail I took in then compared to now was a lot less. The way I experience things is definitely different now.

11. Do you practice self-care? If so, share some of your best techniques!

On a Sunday night, I love to take time to relax. I use my Foreo LUNA mini and clean my face, use a Soap & Glory body scrub and have a nice relaxing shower (obviously with my favourite tunes on to sing along to). I then have some dinner, get into bed and chill out watching TV. I love to make Sunday nights time to relax ready for work on Monday.

    Harry Potter and the theatre are two of my favourite things too! I’m with you on sightseeing; I don’t like beach holidays because I get bored. I’d rather go on a city break to explore! Binge watching TV is also a hobby of mine; I usually do it while I’m blogging!

  • Charlene McElhinney

    I love going to the theatre too! I recently went to see The Shawshank Redemption and it was outstanding! I really want to go to a safari park – I’ve been to the zoo but I imagine safari parks are much better because you can get up close and personal with the animals can’t you?

    Fab post! Loads of interesting facts here chick!

    Love

  • This was so fun to read! I am jealous you went to a safari park because that just sounds amazing! I found your answer to freezing time funny because if people were frozen that would be a bit creepy so hiding out in the house would be brilliant.
