THE BLOGGER TAG | Girl From North London

blog post, tag, lifestyle, fashion, flat lay, header image, vogue, macbook

The lovely Gemma, from justsaygem, tagged me to do The Blogger Tag which she helped Abbie Chic create, in order to get to know other bloggers better.

1. How tall are you?
I'm between 5'6" and 5'7". 

2. Do you have a hidden talent?
I don't think so... but I can play the cello if that counts?

3. What's your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
Repetitive e-mails from companies that I've politely turned down, and getting added to mailing lists that I didn't sign up for! The latter is against the law in the UK so please don't do it!

4. What's your biggest non-blog-related pet peeve?
People that are unnecessarily rude and cat calling. Actually nothing rubs me up the wrong way more than creepy men that deliberately intimidate girls. 

5. What's your favourite song?
As I'm really into music, I don't think I can give a single answer. But at the moment I've got Mac Miller's latest album The Divine Feminine on repeat, and Dang! is my current fave on that. 

6. What's your favourite social media?
Probably Instagram, but I've gone back to an old favourite, Tumblr, over the last month. I wrote a post on my Favourite Fashion Blogs on Tumblr a while ago, so check it out if you're into Tumblr too.

7. What's your favourite time to spend free time when you're alone?
Hmm... I'd say curling up in bed with a vanilla latte, good music and a magazine. I also love putting my headphones in and going on long walks in the summer... but I always end up calling my boyfriend or bestie to join me after a while - I love experiencing stuff with people.

8. What's your favourite junk food?
Ice cream! My favourite flavour is coffee, especially if it's strong.

9. Do you have a pet?
No, and I never have apart from a couple of goldfish that didn't last long. I desperately want a dog, perhaps a Rottweiler or an English Bull Terrier. 

10. What are your favourite fiction and non-fiction books?
A hard one, but I'd have to say either Atonement by Ian McEwan or The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. For non-fiction, I loved Pretty Honest by Sali Hughes - it's really nice to dip into.

11. What's your favourite beauty product/tool?
My Beauty Blender. I use it for foundation and concealer, and nothing else blends liquid products so easily and flawlessly. The result is so natural - I can't go back to brushes!

12. When was the last time you were embarrassed?
Ugh, I constantly embarrass myself!

13. If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
It would have to be coffee, I can't go a day without it... Plus the fashion industry runs on the stuff!

14. What is your favourite film?
Oh god, too many! I'll narrow it down to 3: Pulp Fiction, Battle Royale and Springbreakers. 

15. What was your favourite subject at school and why?
In GCSEs, it was textiles because fashion (duh) but I wasn't too fond of my teacher for Textiles A Level, so I preferred French during sixth form. 

16. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
I want to try living in Japan, perhaps in Tokyo or Osaka. But I think I'll always come back to London, I do love this city, hence the name of this blog.

17. PC or Mac?

18. Last romantic gesture from a crush/ boy/girlfriend/ spouse?
My boyfriend sent me a postcard from Dublin. 

19. Favourite celebrity?
Lana Del Rey

20. What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?
Bryanboy because he's fabulous and I love his sense of humour, and Hannah Louise as her style is an edgier version of mine, so I'd always steal her wardrobe. 

21. Who is your biggest inspiration?
Leandra Medine of Man Repeller.

22. What is your favourite blog to read?
Man Repeller is a constant (see above) but I'm currently loving Shot From The Street (love her YT as well). 

23. What is your favourite high street shop?
H&M or Topshop or Zara. But I've been loving Missguided recently.

24. Are you in education or do you work?
I'm a third year (ew) uni student, studying BA Fashion Management.

25. One thing that you are proud of?
My housemates! I'm always bragging about their achievements and we're helping each other get through the horror of third year.
