The love/hate tag

I was tagged to do this by the lovely sisters of The Flower That Blooms blog and they can also be found on twitter. I was also tagged by the lovely Kimberley of The Colour Chronicles who can also be found twitter. Thank you, you three for thinking of me and tagging me! For this you need to say 10 things you love and 10 things you hate! Then tag some people as well as thank the person who tagged you! I do like tag posts because it allows you to get to know me a bit better!

Love

1) My boyfriend Sean - I will not get soppy but he has been there for me for over six years and despite our ups and downs, we always get stronger, without him, I could never go outside without make up on nor have gone to university.

2) My family - I do not have a big family but again they are always there for me and are so understanding of me. We help each other out where possible and I do not know what I would do without them!

3) Hair dye - I love dying my hair, it really impacts on how you look, I love it! 

4) Gaming - I love gaming so much, I am mainly a PC gamer but I do have a PS3 and a 3DS. I find it much better then a film or book to escape the world as such. I game everyday without fail.

5) Nail varnish - For those who have been following me a long time will know this blog was actually first called Laura's nail art ideas a couple of years ago, but I wanted to expand into beauty. Nail varnish is small so it is easy to store and collect them and I just love having coloured nails! 

6) Stationary - I cannot describe how happy a new notebook or set of pens make me! I have so many unused notebooks, I even have rubbers and I never write in pencil!

7) Candles - I love candles, I find the flickering flame so relaxing, my favourite scent is vanilla, I have 3 different vanilla candles by Yankee Candle.

8) Music - I listen to music every day, I listen too all sorts, my various playlists vary from the 50s to present day. I listen to many genres of music, sometimes I will listen to songs from games I play, sometimes it will be classical. I mainly listen to rock and heavy metal with some hardcore techno, electronic dance and drum and bass music thrown in there!

9) Body scrubs - I love a good body scrub! When I use one, I forget how incredible my skin feels, I feel like I have new skin every time!

10) Piercings - I miss my piercings so much! They all got infected, I miss my eyebrow piercing the most which got infected after nearly a year! I plan on getting my eye brow piercing back when I go back to university in September, as I would like it done by the same person.



Hate

1)  Body Shaming - This is a huge thing to me. I have been brought up to think, if you have nothing nice to say, do not say anything at all. Does it really matter what we look like? It would be boring if we were all the same! I have been called all sorts of things in the street by strangers, I have even had stones thrown at me, I do not understand why people need to say or do these things!

2) No internet - I spend a lot of time on the internet and really dislike it going down or not having internet when I am out. I find it easier to talk to people online and I play games online which help me forget problems in life so the internet is pretty important to me!

3) Cheese - So many people like it, I am sure I would like pizza if there was not any cheese on it, I can barely even touch it!

4) Cinnamon - I really cannot stand the smell of cinnamon or spices. Every year I buy my mum a cinnamon candle as she loves cinnamon and it just fills the living room up of Cinnamon,

5) Cats - I know this will be unpopular but I am really allergic to cats! I get ill for days and I struggle to breathe because my lungs feel like they are full of liquid! It so frustrating my boyfriend has 2 cats and I rarely go to his house because I get so ill!

6) Being forgetful - I am incredibly forgetful, it is really frustrating that I forget people's names and I can read a book or watch a film and not be able to tell you the main characters or what happened! It impacts my daily life as well as my university work. I think there are children who can remember better then me, but I suppose we all have our strengths and weaknesses.

7) Feeling lonely - From April 2014-2015 I lived on my own and it is nice to have your own space, but without having many friends at university, I was very lonely. I had always wanted to live on my own before last year, but in September I will not be living alone.

8) Peanuts - I do not like nut generally but peanuts are my least favourite. I see so many Reeces items on blogs and I feel so left out! The same applies to Nutella as well, though I would rather eat some Nutella over a Recces item.

9) People who try to sell you things or make you donate to charity in the street - I suffer with anxiety and I am very awkward around people, especially strangers. I do worry that one day it will make me have a panic attack, I really do not like being approached by them and I do anything to avoid them.

10) Phone calls - I dread making phone calls, I always worry what if I do not understand the other person, or what if I want to do something and they say I cannot. It sometimes takes me days to pluck up the courage to phone a company and again, I avoid it where possible.


That is ten things I love and hate! That was really difficult, especially the hate section, there is very little I actually hate, it is more of a dislike. So many people have been tagged to do this recently, that I will not tag anyone specifically. But if you read this and fancy doing this, then I tag you! I hope you enjoyed this and got to find out a bit about me. Let me know if you agree or disagree with some of my loves and hates!

  7. Oh my, I cannot believe how much we have in common. I am also a very awkward person and when people approach me I get fidgety and anxious. The other day I was at a beauty store and the woman approached me trying to sell me nail varnish, I didn't know what to do and ultimately I think I made her feel uneasy, wasn't my intention though. I am also better talking to people on the internet than in reality. I can list a bunch more, but I'll keep it to this. I definitely enjoyed reading your list and getting to know you better!
