The ‘get to know me’ tag!


I got the idea for this post from V at Say Hello to Gorgeous.  I hope you enjoy it…

Do you have a middle name?  My name is Traci-Ann so my first and middle names are combined.

What was your favourite subject at school?  I liked biology and history.

What’s your favourite drink?  I love tea…all types of tea.  I am currently drinking a darjeeling earl grey tea with milk.

What’s your favourite song at the moment? I like Uptown Funk but the version by the UK Xfactor finalist Fleur East.

What would you name your children?  I’ve never planned to have children so have never thought about this.  Thinking about what other people name their children, I like more traditional names and old-fashioned names for both girls and boys.

Do you participate in any sports?  Sadly no.  I am not very good at sports and generally shy away from exercise…which is something I am trying to change.

What’s your favourite book?  I read a book several years ago called ‘H’ by Christiane F.  It’s about a young girl’s descent into heroin addiction and prostitution.  This book is a translation of the original book (written in German) and is now out of print…I still have my copy though and have read it about 6 times now.

What’s your favourite colour?  I love black, green and red.  In terms of makeup I love strong colours such as fuchsia, scarlet and purple/berry shades.

What’s your favourite animal? I used to work with horses and will always love and admire these majestic beasts.  We used to have fancy rats as pets at home and they are such intelligent beautiful creatures that they are a close second.

What’s your favourite perfume? At the moment I cannot get enough of the Jo Malone wood sage and sea salt cologne.  The one perfume in my collection that I will always repurchase is J’adore by Dior.

What’s your favourite holiday? I don’t really celebrate any holidays so can’t really pick a favourite.  I guess I like any holiday that gives me an extra day off work!

When did you graduate from high school? We don’t graduate from high school in the UK but I finished my compulsory education at 16 in 1992 (yikes) and stayed on for a further two years (non-compulsory) and finished in 1994.

Have you been out of the country? Lots!  I have lived in different countries…France, Italy, Australia and New Zealand and I have visited many other countries including Austria, Russia, USA, Spain, Indonesia, Japan, Hong Kong and lots of other places that I can’t recall at this moment.

Do you speak any other languages?  Despite living in France and Italy and being able to eat, drink and shop in these languages, I do not consider myself to be able to speak them.  I have no conversational skills or grammatical understanding/knowledge and can only ask and answer direct contextual questions.

What’s your favourite shop?  Any shop that sells beauty products!  I love Boots and Superdrug for my drug store purchases and places like Harvey Nichols, Space NK and Debenhams for my high end splurges.

What’s your favourite restaurant? I love quick and easy places like Wagamama and Pho. Japanese, Thai and Vietnamese food are my current favourites.

Did you like school?  No.  I hated school and was glad when it was over.  University and my self-directed learning experiences are much more my style.

Who are some of your favourite youtubers?  I love watching Tati, Young Wild & Polished, Amelia Liana, Lily Pebbles, Vivianna Does Makeup, Miss Budget Beauty, Vintage or Tacky, Caroline Hirons, Coffee Break with Dani, Goo Roo Beauty, Emily Noel, Kandee Johnson, Grav3yard Girl, Manny MUA, Essie Button and A Model Recommends…I tend to watch most of the videos that they produce.

Others that I dip in and out of a bit are…Fleur DeForce, Jessica Murphy, Pixiwoo, Goss Makeup Artist, Julia Graf, Jaclyn Hill, Leighann Says, Beauty Crush, But First Coffee, Shaaanxo, Kathleen Lights, Lauren Curtis, Samantha Reilly, Ashley Elizabeth, Talk Becky Talk and Nikkie Tutorials.

What’s your favourite film?  I love The Lost Boys, The Breakfast Club, St Elmo’s Fire, Pretty in Pink…basically all of the 80’s brat pack films.  I go to the cinema about once a month but I don’t tend to watch films at home.

What are some of your favourite TV shows?  I love a good box set!  I am currently watching season 3 of Scandal…it’s gripping and I am hooked!  I have Netflix and Amazon Prime and love Orange is the New Black, Breaking Bad, Dexter, Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Game of Thrones, The Originals…and I am trying to get into House of Cards although it’s proving difficult.

Do you prefer PC or MAC?  I have never used a MAC and I am not an Apple fan so it’s PC and Android all the way for me.

How tall are you?  I am 5 foot tall and I have size 34 feet!

Do you have any pets?  I don’t have any pets at the moment.  We always had a multitude of pets when I lived at home…dogs, cat, rats, fish, rabbits, guinea pig, hamster and I miss having the company of pets.

I hope you enjoyed finding out a bit more about me!
