As I nearly always seem to, I found this tag on Jennie's blog and really liked it. I have a massive girl crush on Taylor Swift at the moment — I really like everything she says about being in love with, and taking control of your life (read this Buzzfeed article for more). One of my favourite quotes also comes from her: 'If you don't need a lipstick touch-up at some point, you're not really living.'

1. Welcome to New York. If you could live in any city, which would it be and why?
Right now I'm in love with Cardiff. I'm not too far from there, but it'd be lovely to just walk out the door and have a wander round whenever I fancied it. There are so many cities I'd love to live in though, London would be amazing as well.

2. Blank Space. What is something that everyone thinks is true about you but is actually false?
I think I probably come across as being bored or grumpy a lot of the time if people don't know me very well, but I'm actually just shy, plus I have resting bitch face so that doesn't help!

3. Style. What is one item in your closet that makes you feel unstoppable?
My favourite LBD. It's long-sleeved, short but not too short, body-con, and it has the most incredible beading along the arms and either side of the waist. It fits perfectly, and it always look good.

4. Out of the Woods. What is one thing that you're afraid of?
I'm afraid of a lot of things, but right now I'm scared that I'll leave university and drift around with no sense of purpose, or have some kind of purpose but be unable to get a relevant job.

5. All You Had To Do Was Stay. Who is someone you wish was still in your life?
My grandpa, who died in early 2013. It was a blessing in disguise really, because he was so ill, but sometimes I wish he'd lived to see me get my place at university. Christmas is weird without him; he always had so much fun with us at Christmas.

6. Shake It Off. What is something you have had to shake off?
Nerves! I'm such a worrier, and sometimes I just have to remember to breathe. Keep calm and carry on, and all of that.

7. I Wish You Would. What is something you'd like to happen right now?
I would love to get all my ideas for pieces of writing down on the page the way they are in my head, so that I can work on them and make them as good as they can be. I'd also quite like the back of my house to be fixed so that I don't wake up with a breeze wafting over my face every morning, it's too cold!

8. Bad Blood. Have you ever had someone stab you in the back?
Yes. Not fun.

9. Wildest Dreams. What would you like to be remembered for?
For living life on my own terms, making some kind of positive difference to the world, however big or small, and for writing something good.

10. How You Get The Girl. What is your favourite pick-up line?
I hate pick-up lines! Being able to have a natural conversation with someone without it being awkward or without me struggling to think of what to talk about is good, because it doesn't happen very often. 

11. This Love. What is something you got back that you never thought you would?
Over a year after I stopped taking ballet classes, I can finally do the splits again!

12. I Know Places. Where is one place you always feel safe?
My parents' house. It's nice to go back and have someone else cook and clean (although I still try and help with that when I'm there) and I always take full advantage of having access to a bath. Bring on the Lush bath bombs! 

13. Clean. What is an important lesson you have learned in life, and how did you learn it?
The people worth having in your life are the ones who always make the effort, no matter how much your lives change. I feel like I truly discovered the meaning of this when I moved away to attend university, and although it was a difficult lesson to learn it was an important one.

I tag you! If you've already done it then feel free to leave me your links in the comments!
