Get To Know Me Tag

I've had my blog for 3 years now and I have never done a simple get to know me tag, quite odd considering every blogger I know has done one. I am not going to waste time with the intro as there is quite a few questions in the tag so I shall get straight in to it.

Are you named after anyone?

Usually people assume I am Irish or have some Irish in my family since my name is Shannon, I was actually named after Nicole Kidman's character "Shannon Christie" in the 1990's film Far and Away. My parents really liked the name Shannon after watching the film.

When was the last time you cried?

About two weeks ago, it was actually tears of happiness for getting a 2.1 this year!

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

Probably not, I can be quite annoying haha (shout out to my actual friends who put up with me)

Do you use sarcasm a lot?

Me? Sarcastic? Of course not!

What's the first thing you notice about people?

I am pretty good at picking up on peoples vibes so the first thing I tend to notice is mannerisms and whether I am getting a positive vibe off of them.

What is your eye colour?


Scary movies or happy endings?

Happy endings! I would love to get into scary films as I love a good horror story but I have such a phobia of jump scares, props to anyone who can watch them!

Favorite scent? 

Chance by Chanel, I love it but cannot afford it!

What's the furthest you have ever been from home?

I went to the west coast of the USA a few years ago so probably there.

Where were you born?


What are your hobbies?

Blogging, thrifting and I also have a little resell business which I consider a hobby.

Do you have any pets?

I have a black cat called Max and a flame point Siamese called Zak who I am constantly tweeting/snapchatting about.

Do you have any siblings?

I have one younger sister.

How tall are you?


How many countries have you visited?


What was your favourite/worst subject in highschool?

My favourite was probably biology and my worst was PE where we had the rudest teacher.

What is your favourite drink?

Those iced lemon teas from Starbucks are by far one of my favourites at the moment.

What sports do you/have you played?

I am by no means a sporty person now but back in the day I did do a little. I used to play netball,  I have always been taller than most of my peers so I was pretty good as a goal keeper. I also used to do a lot of running, I did receive a few awards for cross country and racing but I stopped running because of bullies!

Who are some of your favourite Youtubers?

This is quite a tough question since I am obsessed with Youtube. I would say my favourites are Gabi Demartino for her girly style. Sophie Shohet because shes so inspirational and finally Lily Like for her motivational videos.

How would you describe your fashion sense?

Again this is a pretty hard one, I would say it depends on my mood. Most days I would be wearing a skater skirt with a pretty shirt which can appear preppy but then other days I like to dress in vintage inspired clothing. I am going to go with 1960's/Preppy/Taylor Swift inspired.

What phone do you have?

I currently have a rose gold IPhone 6s!

Tell us one of your bad habits

I would say one of my major flaws is that I trust far too easily, something that I need to work on!

I hope you liked this little Q&A, please feel free to answers these too!
