I’m going to treat this post as if you’re a regular reader to my blog and know bits about me, so I’m not going to share the usual where I’m from, how many siblings I have, kinda thing. Hopefully I won’t bore you to tears but if I do, go read one of my more interesting posts *wink*

  1. My taste in music is very eclectic. I went through a very long love affair with R&B; I wanted to marry Usher, and B2K were my life. I’m also a massive rock/metal fan – people always seem to be shocked when I tell them this, don’t I look like the ‘kind’? Either way, I’ll slay any song (and by slay, I mean sing it perfectly) from Alter Bridge to Ginuwine, Tina Turner to Justin Bieber. I used to stick to specific genres and now I don’t care, if I like it, I like it.
  2. Fantasy and supernatural novels are my jam. I’m currently reading Sarah J Maas – Throne of Glass series and it’s so good. But if there’s fairies, vampires, witches – I’m all over it.
  3. You’ll piss me off if you try to school me on Marvel. ‘Oh you watched some of the X-Men films? Sound. Move along.’
  4. As a child I used to be terrified of death, I’d lock myself in my room, listen to I’ll Be Missing You and cry. Now, I have fascination with death, or more specifically the way the Victorian’s celebrated it. I’m not wholly sure why but since everything weird and wonderful during the nineteenth century intrigues me, I suppose it was bound to happen.
  5. I love going to the theatre. There’s something really magical and amazing about a live show, I’d go every week if I could afford it.
  6. I’m not really fussed about marriage. I guess it’s probably because I don’t like parties, so I should rephrase that to, I’m not really fussed about a marriage reception. If I did ever get married I’d much rather pop off to a registry office with a handful of witnesses and go for a meal afterwards. I can’t be arsed with a whole day, even the thought of it is exhausting.
  7. I LOVE tattoos and piercings, and have few. People seem to be shocked about this too, I don’t know why.
  8. Skulls are one of my obsessions; prints, clothes, ornaments.
  9. I used to fancy Aladdin. I liked his waistcoat.
  10. I lucid dream and am able to wake myself up if I’m not enjoying myself.
So, there you go, that’s 10 things you now know about me.

    I love this, I love learning random facts about people that doesn't usually come up in regular conversation. I feel the exact same way about weddings, not my thing at all and I can't really see the point. I'd like to get married some day, but not like that.

    In my experience a wedding is more about paying for the other people going and throwing a massive party for them – not yourself. A wedding is a huge and expensive pain in the arse the organise – the only reason we're having a shindig is because my partner wanted me to have more than a registry office and the venue we found as an alternative was just too good of a price and location to pass on. If you want a simple get together I say go for it, don't even bother with invites or anything just have a good time – the legal bit only costs £500 compared to a ££££ budget.

    Alter Bridge are one of my absolute favourite bands but I too like a bit of everything. I also find wherever I go I can have fun no matter what the music type that way! x

    It's lovely to learn more about the person behind a blog 🙂 We seem to have quite a few things in common, too! I'm really interested in the weird and macabre wonders of the Victorian Era; it's always been one of my favourite periods in history. I also love the theatre! Musicals are amazing, and I love smaller local productions and plays of classics, fairytales and such 🙂 Thanks for the book recommendation, I'll definitely have to check out the Throne of Glass novels x
