Taylor Swift 1989 Tag

Hey everyone :)

So I recently discovered a blog - which I have to admit I fell in love with straight away. It's just so real and honest and that's what I love about it. Her blog is based around her life in London - the ups, the downs, her cats and lots of other stuff (I don't want to sound like some kind of freak stalker by listing all her likes and dislikes). Her name is Charlotte and her blog is called 'Charlotte's Web'.

So I can't remember how I found Charlotte's blog ... which is kind of annoying me (yes things like that annoy me). It might have been from Louise's blog (Sprinkles of Glitter) or perhaps when I was scouring through the millions of blogs on Bloglovin ... I don't know ...

Anyway I've rambled on enough ... getting to the point of this post. I was stalking her posts (as you do when you find a new blog - other bloggers will understand what I mean) and discovered she is a Taylor Swift fan - which excites me to no end as I don't know anyone within a 20 miles radius that likes her apart from me and my manager (however she leaves in a couple of weeks and I won't see her as much). Which sucks as I wanted someone to go with to the British Summer Time Festival in June. Anyway one of her posts talks about Taylor's new album: 1989 and the 'Taylor Swift 1989 Tag' - so what a great excuse to do a post and video on the tag - YAY!

Before we begin ... I felt I had to set the mood for the post ... so I have the album playing, I did contemplate buying a blonde wig from Amazon (but delivery is 10-15 days from China and this dude can't wait that long), I also contemplated red lipstick but I don't think me wearing lipstick will make me feel like Taylor Swift ... I also have a cup of tea ... does she drink tea?

Jeez I've noticed I write lots when I don't really need to ... I should really start paying someone to edit my posts ...

Question 1: Welcome to New York // If you could live in any city, which would it be and why?
I've got a little obsession with Dallas at the moment. I don't know why but I really want to visit someday. I would love to move to America and live somewhere - I can't decide on a city though - probably Florida or New York or San Francisco.

Question 2: Blank Space // What is something that everyone thinks is true about you but is actually false?
That I'm a quiet and a pushover - I'm anything but - it just takes lots to get me riled up.

Question 3: Style // What is one item in your closet that makes you feel unstoppable?
How the hell can you choose one thing? My 'going-out' shirts - I love the saying - 'if you look good, you feel good' and my shirts make me look good :)

Question 4: Out of the Woods // What is one thing you're afraid of?
Spiders. No question, no competition - SPIDERS!

Question 5: All You Had To Do Was Stay // Who is someone you wish was still in your life?
My grandparents - sometimes I feel like we (my family) were robbed of them. Cancer, heart attacks, liver disease took them too early.

Question 6: Shake It Off // What is something you have had to shake off?
It took me until University to come out - well I didn't really 'come out' - I just let people assume or ask me. When I was in secondary school (high school for you US guys) I spent 5 years of my life with the insults of 'gay', 'he loves bum fun' etc etc etc ... so I just learnt to ignore it and shake it off.

Question 7: I Wish You Would // What is something you'd like to happen right now?
I don't like to moan (as I don't want to make him feel bad) but sometimes I want some cuddles from my boyfriend - you know when you've watched a sad film and have spent a good half hour crying your eyes out and you just want a hug ... I need that right now ... and he is thousands of miles away in Canada - May needs to hurry up.

Question 8: Bad Blood // Have you ever had someone stab you in the back?
With the work I do - the question should be - when is someone not stabbing you in the back.

Question 9: Wildest Dreams // What would you like to be remembered for?
For being positive - I always try and be bubbly and happy and chirpy and chatty - and hope I'm remembered for that - or at least for being annoying :)

Question 10: How You Get The Girl // What is your favourite pick-up line?
Not my own - but Joey's 'How You Doin?' is always stuck in my head. I suppose that's what 10 seasons of friends does to you :)

Question 11: This Love // What is something you got back that you never thought you would?
My ex put me in a bad place when it came to relationships and trusting so that slowly came back when I entered into a new relationship.

Question 12: I Know Places // Where is one place you always feel safe?
My bed. (or with Dave, preferably in bed spooning)

Question 13: Clean // What is an important lesson you have learned in life, and how did you learn it?
Learning that saying no to people isn't the end of the world. Numerous times have I had to refuse and say no - because it was too much for me - I cannot think of an example at the moment. I have been up nearly 24 hours and I'm dying right now.

This was shorter than I thought - but that's a good thing right - as I didn't want to bore you lovely, amazing people.

Let me know if you have done the tag or link it in the comments so I can check it out if you do it ...
