The TMI Tag - Get to know me!

I do love reading these tags on other peoples blogs, so when the lovely Holly from Impatience is a Virtue tagged me, I was totally chuffed... thank you Holly, please go and visit her blog because it is fabulous!

1: What are you wearing? 

As I'm writing this I am wearing jogging bottoms and a football top (plus underwear) whilst watching The Voice on iPlayer

2: Ever been in love? 

Well considering I'm married I had better say yes and you can see him here -

3: Ever had a terrible breakup? 

More than one, though I am still friends with the person involved!

4: How tall are you? 

I'm pint sized, only 5ft 5.5" so much shorter than most people expect me to be.  They do say good things come in small packages though :)

5: How much do you weigh? 


6: Any tattoos? 

Nope, I am too much of a wimp and dont really think I am the type of person who would suit them if that makes sense?!

7: Any piercings? 

My ears once and I rarely wear earrings, I have really small ears and am quite paranoid about them, so they tend to be covered up most of the time.  I always wanted my tongue pierced when i was younger, but never did go ahead with it.

8: OTP? 

Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele - awwww

9: Favourite show?

I have far too many - CSI, Dexter, NCIS, Storage Wars, Pawn Stars, The Voice, Don't Tell The Bride, The West Wing, House, Duck Dynasty and probably so many more

10: Favourite bands? 

Again there are loads - Metallica, Inspiral Carpets, Five Finger Death Punch, The Killers, Kasabian, Terrorvision, Black Sabbath, Bush, Creed and my all time favourite band Queen. 

11: Something you miss? 

Seeing my Grandad, he died a long time ago now but I think he would have loved my hubby, they would have had quite a lot in common.  I also miss my Nanna, she suffered with dementia for many years, so throughout my teens she never really knew who I was and I always wondered what advice she would have given me had she been well.

12: Favourite song?

N-Trance Set you Free is my all time favourite song, so many memories come with it as I was growing up.

13: How old are you? 

A lady never reveals her age!

14: Zodiac sign? 

I am a Cancerian which means my moods can change at the click of a button. It is also that being a true cancerian, like the crab, I am soft on the inside, but I'll never let you see that side until you break down the barrier of that hard outer shell that barricades my true self to the inside. Unfortunately, being able to break down that outer shell/barrier that is puts up is not that easy for others to accomplish. I will guard my inner self with my very life and l will also guard the ones that I love with the exact same passion. 

Don’t mess with a Cancerian’s loved ones because if you do, you’ll get the pinchers!

This describes me entirely HERE

15: Quality you look for in a partner? 

Someone who is thoughtful, loyal and trustworthy and is there for me when I need them.  The power to make me smile and laugh.

16: Favourite Quote? 

17: Favourite actor? 

I don't think I actually have a favourite. I like people like Denzil Washinton, Robert Pattinson, Brad Pitt and so on.... but no actual favourite.

18: Favourite color? 

You would think looking at my blog but I am a very girly loving fan of pink.  Not that I wear much pink clothing wise!

19: Loud music or soft? 

It really depends on what I'm doing and what mood I am in. If I'm cleaning the flat I have it loud so I can hear it in every room but if I'm getting ready for work in the morning I'll have it quiet.  One thing that annoys me is when on public transport you can hear other peoples music, so I am mindful others cannot hear mine.

20: Where do you go when you're sad? 

Lay on my bed, usually on my side facing the wall or if I need to get out and get some air, I just walk until I am feeling okay again,

21: How long does it take you to shower? 

About 20 minutes if I am not washing my hair

22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? 

Usually about an hour because I am doing others things in the process, get up, feed cats, have shower, get dressed, put GHDs on, do hair, sort face out, get the mister up, make him a cup of tea and then make sure I have everything in my bag

23: Ever been in a physical fight?

Yes and broke his nose - someone decided to pick on an ex of mine who would never stand up for himself, so was an easy target for the school bully, I saw red and clocked him one.  

24: Turn on?

Deep dark eyes and a loving smile.  Also someone who smells good.

25: Turn off? 

Bad body odour, bad table manners

26: The reason I started blogging? 

I remember stumbling across a few blogs and thinking, I want to try that and I want to tell people what I think about products too - so my blog was born.  Also a good friend of mine Hayley over at Sparkles and Stretchmarks encouraged me too and I love her blog too.

27: Fears? 

Being alone and growing old alone.

28: Last thing that made you cry? 

Paul O'Grady Battersea Dogs Home programme, how 'humans' (loose term) can treat animals in that way disgusts me.

29: Last time you said you loved someone? 

This morning to my niece on Skype

30: Meaning behind your blog Name? 

I want to be The Queen, I love The Queen and all things Royal and I am a huge fan of beauty products.

42: Favourite flavour of sweet?

None, I have no musical talent whatsoever, I even struggled with the recorder at school

44: Favourite piece of jewellery?

My engagement ring, I love it so much, it means the world to me

45: Last sport you played?

Armchair football, does shouting at the referee count?

46: Last song you sang?

I've just been singing along to The Voice.

47: Favourite chat up line?

How do you like your eggs in a morning - it still makes me cackle

48: Have you ever used it?

49: Last time you hung out with anyone?
