Get to know me.

Today has all been about planning, planning, planning. I've been writing several lists on posts I want to do and basically organising my blog (will hopefully share these once I get organised). It's been a lot of note-taking and I've been glued to either my phone or my laptop. My eyes feel dry like the desert and I'm a little bit frazzled (My chocolate Shaken Udder Milkshake has been giving me a tiny boost), therefore I've decided today's post is going to be an easy one, to ease me back into the routine and also because I won't have to think too much, I hope!

I saw the Get To Know Me Tag first on the beauty and lifestyle blog Thirteen Thoughts, which you should all check out. 

I haven't been 'tagged' to do this, but hey ho, i'm sure no-one cares! I will however be tagging someone at the end. Mwaha.

Get To Know Me Tag

1. Are you named after someone?

Ha, well funnily enough I am strangely named after a baby in a TV Series called Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em. My parents used to watch it and thought Jessica was a cute name. 

2. When was the last time you cried? 

That's a hard one. I'm usually quite an emotional person. Probably during some movie..I definitely cried during Big Hero 6. Please no judgement. 

3. Do you have kids?


4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

I hope this doesn't sound big-headed, but I think I would. I see myself as a good friend to others (friends, please let me know otherwise haha).

5. Do you have a guilty pleasure?

Sweeties, and lots of them! (Not often though). 

6. Do you like handwriting? 

Not really as mine is basically a scrawl. I do admire others though, especially my sister's! 

7. What is your favourite cereal?

8. What is the first thing you notice about people?

Their facial expression and how they are feeling. I love to see a smile. If they look unhappy, I generally notice it or even sense it. 

9. What colour are your eyes?


10. Scary movie or happy endings?

Happy endings for sure. I am not a lover of anything horror. They will give me nightmares and freak me out for a long while after. 

11. Favourite TV show?

Oooh this is hard. I've recently been liking The Middle and also Modern Family. I love all those American family type shows. 

12. Summer or Winter?

Summer! I love the heat. I do like the idea of winter but it generally gives me the blues, unless it's December and Christmas! 

13. Hugs or Kisses?

Depends who! Hugs for friends and distant family. Kisses for my hubby, parents, sister and my cat :p 

14. What's the further you've been from home?

New York! I'm guessing in miles this is the furthest. 

15. Do you have any special talents?

Knocking drinks over. My nephew can explain many a story for you. 

16. Where were you born?

Cornwall, in the deepest South of England :p

17. What are your hobbies?

Blogging, vlogging, reading and baking. Oh and I do love travelling but don't do it as often to call it a hobby.

18. Do you have any pets?

I have a 3-legged cat named Tinker, which we got from a animal shelter. You can read more about her story here.

19. Favourite movie? 

It's really hard to pinpoint my favourite movie of all time, but the films that I can watch over and over again, have to be the Harry Potter Series. Loved it as a kid and still do. Oh but I must say, another film that has come into my head is Pitch Perfect 2, another which i've seen countless times already! 

20. What colour is your car?

Please don't mention driving.. the bane of my life. 

21. What did you want to be when you grow up?

I always wanted to work in the media. Ever since watching The Devil Wears Prada and The September Issue, I was hooked. I did pursue a publishing degree and have worked for magazines, however it hasn't always worked out. Something is always dragging me back into though. This blog I guess counts! 

So that's the end of this tag! Hope you enjoyed this random and somewhat lazy post. And as I said before, i'm going to tag someone, and that someone is going to be my good friend and fellow blogger, Rachel Pattinson

If you've done one of these tags before, be sure to link them below in the comments as I'd love to get to know all you guys!
