Too Much Information!!

I love a good tag post, it's also about time that I told you guys a little more about me and I mean, what better tag to do than the 'too much information' tag! If you want to see the more personal side of me, then stick around! I would also love to know your answers to some of these questions - so leave a response in the comments below! Or even link me to your own TMI Tag post, if you've done one! But, without further a do.. here we go! (Sorry, the fact that there are so many questions and that I love to ramble meant it ended up super long! - so I'd grab a coffee and a snack if I were you!)

1. What are you wearing?
I have on an over sized black top (with a bright orange owl on the front) and some patterned leggings. I pretty much live in leggings since I hardly leave the house (... no regrets!)  Also I love a good over sized top! Comfy clothes are a must for me, every day! 

2. Have you ever been in love?
Yes, I have been with my boyfriend for 3 years now, so I would say we're pretty much in love (cringe.. haha!) I also have ex-boyfriends, but they were all secondary school romances, so I wouldn't say I ever truly loved any of them. (sorry guys!) 

3. Have you ever had a terrible break up?
Not really, but I do have 2 funny (?) break up stories. The first one was when I was in like Year 9 and the guy I was going out with broke up with me by handing me a note that said something cliche like 'we can still be friends.. blahh' but at the bottom it said 'you should go out with ____ he really likes you!' and this guy was someone who I really wasn't attracted to AT ALL. But turns out, he was stood behind me as I was reading the note, and I was too nice to say no - so I ended up going out with him for about a year.. (omg it makes me cringe so bad!) The second story was about me breaking up with a guy (the boyfriend before my current one actually!) I actually broke up with him on Friday the 13th via MSN... (if you know what MSN is then you're amazing haha!) when I look back I feel like such an idiot.. but I can't help but laugh! 

4. How tall are you?
I'm around 5'5" I believe! I haven't actually been measured in so so many years! But I know I'm pretty much average for my age, even though it doesn't fell that way as everyone seems to tower over me! It doesn't help that my best friend and boyfriend are both giants! 

5. How much do you weigh?
Honestly, I weigh a lot more than I want to! (I know that's a cop-out, sorry!) But seriously, since starting uni I've put on so much weight from eating loads of crap and not doing any exercise! I seriously need to get back on my cross trainer sometime soon! 

6. Any tattoos?
Nope. Although I would love to get something small (and cliche) like a heart or arrow or something - basically something small that has no meaning! The only thing is, I'm terrified of needles and I have no clue what my parents would think! 

7. Any piercings?
I've had my ear pierced twice - once when I was very very young and again when I was a bit older! But they have closed up again now, because I don't like how earrings look on me and I honestly just don't have time for jewelry! 

8. OTP? 
Spoby from Pretty Little Liars! My friends say that me and my boyfriend remind them so much of Toby and Spencer and I love that so much, because Spencer is by far my favourite character in the series! SPOILER: This is one reason why I'm not enjoying the new episodes so much, because of Spaleb - I feel like no one likes Spaleb though..?! It's such a weird coupling to me! 

9. What is your favourite show?
The first show that comes to mind is Pretty Little Liars because I have been watching it for years and love it to bits! But also, I've just started watching The Walking Dead and I am OBSESSED! 

10. Who are your favourite bands/singers?
My music taste is so random, but to list a few I love; Muse, Adele, Ariana Grande, Fall Out Boy and pretty much any song that is a throwback tune! I love listening to all the old songs I used to love when I was younger! 

11. Something you miss?
I'm going to be cringey and say my family, for the past 2 years I've lived about 2 hours drive away from my entire family, so I hardly see them anymore, which is a huge shock to the system when you're used to spending 17-18 years of your life with them! My Mum is actually coming down to visit tomorrow, with my brother, so I am incredibly excited for that! 

12. Favourite song?
I really love the song Kiss Me by Sixpence None The Richer! I never ever skip the song if it comes on Spotify - it's just so happy and lovely! Gah! 

13. How old are you?
I am 19 at the moment, but I will be 20 on the 16th of March - which is so soon! 

14. Zodiac sign?
Pisces - I haven't actually read up on what my sign means in a while so I literally just looked it up now. It basically says that we are focused most on our own feelings and the feelings of others, which it definitely true for me! The symbol also represents 'go with the flow' which is me in a nutshell I think - although I am get super anxious and worried I always try and remember to just go with whatever happens, because it happens for a reason. 

15. Quality you look for in a partner?
Basically anyone who is funny and is okay with weirdness! I would say I can be a little bit weird at times and my boyfriend has learned to embrace the weirdness - so that's good! haha! 

16. What is your favourite quote?
'Only open your mouth if what you are about to say is more beautiful than silence' this rings so true for me because I always try to only say things that are nice or that won't hurt the other person. I feel like a lot of people underestimate their own words and how much they can effect someone else. I know from first hand experience how much they can effect a persons confidence and self esteem, and I wouldn't wish that on anyone.  

17. Who is your favourite actor/actress?
I really love Rachel McAdams, mainly because I love every movie she's ever been in and also Leonardo DiCaprio, for obvious reasons! 

18. Favourite colour
Pink - because I'm a girly seven year old at heart!

19. Loud music, or soft?
I always listen to my music really loud and I don't know why! I suppose my Dad has always been into loud music because he loves showing off his high tech speakers and I suppose I've inherited this love of loud music. I always have my music up so loud when I have headphones in - it probably isn't good for my ears, but ahh well! 

20. Where do you go when you're sad?
I normally like to curl up in a ball, either on the sofa or on my bed. I usually always listen to sad music when I'm sad, and I end up feeling really sorry for myself! But it's healthy to have a good cry and get it all out! 

21. How long does it take you to shower?
If I'm getting in to wash my hair and shave my legs, I would say around 25 minutes. I much prefer to have a bath though - much more relaxing! 

22. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
If I am bothering to do my makeup, it takes me about 1 hour, I always give myself an hour slot if I need to go out anywhere and it's always seemed to work for me! 

23. Have you ever been in a physical fight?
No, and to be honest I'm too much of a scared-y cat I haven't even been in a verbal fight! Honestly, it's because I can't think of any good come-backs until it's too late! 

24. Turn ons?
I LOVE blue eyes so so much! Also, just a sense of humor - anyone who will laugh at my bad jokes! 

25. Turn offs?
Anyone who is rude - we can't be having that can we!?

26. Why did you start blogging?
For me, it was to gain confidence, and honestly, I feel like I've come so far since I started blogging! Another reason was to make new friends, which I have done! The blogging community is so welcoming and lovely! 

27. What are your fears?
It sounds so cringey, but probably being left alone without my boyfriend - he's honestly one of the only humans who I can stand for a long period of time and I don't know what I would do without him! I also have a huge fear of spiders - small or big, get them away from me! bleugh! 

28. The last thing that made you cry?
I got all in a stress last week because the house was a mess - I think this was the last time I cried! I hope I'm not the only one who does this! 

29. The last time you said you loved someone?
About 15 minutes ago to my boyfriend! 

30. The meaning behind your blog name?
I was originally called simply-my-life because that's what my blog is about! But I changed it to jemmas-simple-life when I moved hosting websites and got a domain name, to make it more personal! 

31. Last book you read?
The last book I read was honestly, Fifty Shades Freed (the last book in the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy) and I'm not even ashamed to admit it! I actually really enjoyed the series and I loved the first movie (mainly because of Jamie Dornan.. but hey!) Honestly, I finished reading this quite a while ago, but I never make any time for reading anymore!

32. The book you're currently reading?
I started Zoe Sugg's Girl Online: On Tour, last year and still have yet to finish it, but I'm loving it so far! 

33. Last show you watched?
The Walking Dead - I am currently on Season 3, and only started it last week. Me and my boyfriend are addicted because it's so good!! 

34. Last person you talked to?
My boyfriend, probably something about not making a mess because I just cleaned the house! Honestly, since moving in with my boyfriend, I completely understand why my Mum used to nag me so much as a child! 

35. The relationship between you and the last person you texted. 
If you're going by texts, (which I barely use, because I have Whatsapp) it was my Mum about coming down tomorrow! She isn't high tech enough to understand Whatsapp!! 

36. What is your favourite food?
My favourite snack is original pringles and sour cream and onion dip - I am addicted to this at the moment! Thanks to my step-mum for re-introducing me to this at Christmas (I am now never without my sour cream and onion dip!) But my favourite meal is either ribs and chips or a roast dinner! NOM! 

37. Place you want to visit?
I have always wanted to visit New York (this is honestly thanks to Glee - I know, I am so sad!) 

38. Last place you were?
My flat, I honestly haven't left for a few days and I'm starting to get stir crazy! 

39. Do you have a crush?
Does my boyfriend count as a crush..? If not then Darren Criss! - He's been my crush for years! (and my boyfriend is very jealous.. haah!) 

40. Last time you kissed someone?
My boyfriend kissed me this morning to stop me from nagging him! *blush* 

41. Last time you were insulted?
I honestly can't really remember - which is definitely a good thing! I suppose the only time I was kind of insulted was when I had a meeting with one of my uni lecturers about my anxiety (because I wasn't attending some of my lectures) she really didn't understand the situation at all, and thought that pairing me up with a girl who I barely knew was the best solution - the fact that she underestimated the extent of my anxiety sort of insulted me! 

42. Favourite flavour of sweet?
I love peppermint sweets! That's probably why I love Christmas so much - candy canes! 

43. What instruments do you play?
I used to play the recorder, piano and guitar (all at separate times in my life) but I never became good at any of them, because I'm rubbish at sticking with things! I would love to learn to play the piano though, because piano music is so beautiful - I love it!

44. Favourite piece of jewelry?
I hardly ever wear jewelry but I have a gorgeous Tiffany bracelet from my boyfriend and a Tiffany necklace from my Dad! I really need to remember to wear them more often! 

45. Last sport you played?
I'm rubbish at sport, even though I actually did P.E. as a GCSE at school.. and Sports Leadership in sixth form which was so so much fun! But I really don't remember the last sport I played, probably tennis?! 

46. Last song you sang?
I am currently singing What Goes Around by Justin Timberlake, mainly because it's just playing on my Spotify and I can't be bothered to put the next song on..!

47. Favourite pick up line?
One that a friend told me and I'll never forget - Do you have a map? Because I'm lost in your eyes!

48. Have you ever used it?
Only for jokes, I've never used any pick up line to be serious ever! I also don't think anyone's ever used a pick up line on me either! 

49. Last time you hung out with anyone?
A while actually! (Awh poor me..!) I actually prefer being by myself most of the time, but I do always make time for my gorgeous best friend! 

50. Who should answer these questions next?
Anyone who wants to! But be sure to link me your post if you do - would love to read you answers! 


  1. I really laugh at the part of the ex boyfriends, and MSN was the best when I was younger, I loved it more than fb, tw, etc.

    4. How tall are you?
    I'm around 5'5" I believe! I haven't actually been measured in so so many years! But I know I'm pretty much average for my age, even though it doesn't fell that way as everyone seems to tower over me! It doesn't help that my best friend and boyfriend are both giants! I get whay you mean with pretty little liars because my favourites are haleb and I hate that thing that they made with spencer and caleb they just.. don't match! I hope the two old couples come back together in the future! And I love twd too so yay! haha! And you favourite quote is something that I keep telling everybody. I read it once and I'm always trying to make people understand how simple and important it is!

    1. Literally cringing so hard at those stories!! MSN was life - haha!

      My friend love haleb too, so both of us are so upset with the new episodes! I'm sure the old couples will all go back together because I swear no one is enjoying the new episodes (or is it just me!?)

      I'm so glad you like the quote too - it's something that everyone should be taught, to me it's so so important! x

  2. Loved reading this, Jemma! I laughed so hard at the ex boyfriends story. It's hilarious. Also, I am average for my height, but I swear all of my friends are too freaking tall! I feel like a minion compared to them! And I am going to say something you are not going to like... I LOVE SPALEB!! I ship them so hard right now and I actually never was fond of Toby, he got on my nerves a lot, haha :)

    -Leta | The Nerdy Me

    1. Literally want to hide away from that story - haha! We can be average height together!! No! Spaleb is not good at all - I love Toby so so much!! (are you trying to get back at me for insulting tea?! haha!) x

  3. This was so funyn and interesting to reaad! You're definitely not alone on the whole crying if the house is messy scenario - I've so been there!

    Steph -

    1. Thanks so much, I'm really glad you enjoyed it! I'm so glad I'm not the only, thought I was going a bit mad to be honest!! x

  4. You and your boyfriend sound like total goals, if anything you two are my OTP! I love posts like this, maybe because I'm so nosy? Hahaha
