Get To Know Me | A-Z Of Me


I recently saw this cute little post over one of my gorgeous blogging friends' blogs, she's called Hannah and you should check her out - right now, Go! You can go and read her post here! I really enjoyed reading her post because although it was short and sweet and I loved getting to know her a little more and I thought that it was such a good way of sharing a bit about yourself! So I thought I would jump straight on that bandwagon and write a little A-Z of me too, just to share all the little things that come together to make me! I also managed to somehow write something for every single letter believe it or not - so bonus points for me! If you've written a similar post please feel free to link me to it in the comment, because I always love reading little facts about you guys too! 

A - ANXIETY // Although not a very happy or positive subject anxiety is just a part of me now and I have really learned to accept that recently. I'll always have my ups and downs when it comes to my mental health but I'm just so happy that I have a great support system with my family and friends!

B - BLOGGING // Blogging has literally become my life and I wouldn't have it any other way, it sounds super cliche but starting a blog was literally the best decision I ever made, I love everything about it - every opportunity and friendship it has given me! You can read a bigger ramble about his here if you really want to... haha! 

C - COFFEE // Coffee is my life, and I pretty much can always be found with a cup of coffee nearby! It's what keeps me going, especially recently with my 6am starts at work, coffee has genuinely become my life saver! 

D - DISNEY // As a child at heart I love everything Disney! I think its because I was pretty much brought up with Disney as a child, I could honestly sit for hours and just watch all the old Disney films - they just make me feel so nostalgic, I love it! My favourite Disney film has always been Beauty and The Beast, mainly because I love Belle's character so so much but I could also literally watch that film over and over again! And lets not forget all the little gems that came out of the Disney TV program, which I pretty much grew up with - Hannah Montana, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and Sonny With A Chance!

E - ETHAN // My boyfriend! We've been together for almost 4 years now and we've been friends for way longer - I absolutely love him to bits and I could never ever live without him! Obviously as you probably know by now, we've lived together for almost a whole year now and I feel like we've only grown closer in that time, I just love the fact that I've always got my soul mate close to me at all times!

F- FAMILY // I've always been a very family oriented person, I love everything about my family and I don't know what I'd ever do without them! Now that I've moved out of my family home, I miss them more than ever and I really do appreciate everything they ever did for me! I also hope that in the future I can have a family of my own, since this has always been a dream of mine! 

G - GYMNASTICS // I've always done gymnastics and dance from a young age and I am super pooped that I ever quit them! However, both have left me a pretty flexible person! I'm pretty sure I can still do the splits and I have a freakishly flexible back meaning that I can touch my foot to my head... *cringe*

H - HOME // Home is where I feel safe and comfortable! I've really tried my absolutely hardest to make my house feel super homely and I think I've succeeded! (My friends seem to think so anyways, *kaching*) My house is everything to me even if it is just a piddly little one bedroom flat with no storage, because it's my comfort zone on those days where I don't want to talk to anyone. 

I - ITALY // Italy is at the top of my list of places I want to visit! I've never ever been to Italy but I really hope to go some when in the near future! In fact, I am actually saving up at the moment.. well I'm supposed to be!

J - JEMMA?! // My name.. is that cheating I don't know?! But I've always loved my name, I love the way it sounds and the way it's spelled - I used to always hate the fact that I couldn't ever find anything personalised with my name on it because it's spelled with a J and not a G, but I much prefer it that way; it's what makes me unique! 

K - KINDNESS // I like to think that I am a kind person and I really do take time to be as kind as possible in my daily life! I also seem to surround myself with kind people since every single one of my friends and family members are all the kindest people I could ever hope for, love you all!

L - LUSH // If you know me, you know that I am obsessed with all things Lush, to the point where Lush should start paying me, because I am practically a walking, talking advertisement for them, haha! You can always find me in the bath with some sort of lush concoction, probably covered in glitter and obviously with a Lush face mask on! 

M - MUGS // If you know me, you'll also know that I have a pretty hefty mug collection.. this kind of goes in hand with my coffee addiction, haha! I don't know what it is about cute mugs, but I have to have them all! But! They do have to be huge mugs, like bigger than your average mug, because if I'm going to have a coffee it might as well be a big mug of coffee, right?! My favourite mug of the moment is my Minnie Mouse mug, I love everything about it! 

N - NETFLIX // Not really sure where I'd be without Netflix! I literally have so many different series on the go that I lose track a lot of the time! I'm currently watching American Horror Story, Jane The Virgin, Call The Midwife and of course Pretty Little Liars when it comes back from hiatus! Netflix is honestly one of my favourite things to do when I'm bored though, it just get's rid of all my stress and worries! 

O - OOPS.. // Probably the word I use most on a daily basis, I'm constantly breaking things as I am in fact the biggest clutz you will ever meet! Unfortunately I have a bit of a habit of breaking expensive things the most, mainly my phone screen which seems to get smashed at least 3 times a year.. I have honestly lost count of the amount of phones I have broken in my lifetime - I honestly should go back to original Nokia that I had when I was 8, watch me break that, haha! 

P -  PORTSMOUTH // My home town for the moment! I moved here for University and like every town it has its downsides but I absolutely love living by the beach, which is definitely my favourite part of living here! Who knows where I'll end up when uni is finished but for now I'm loving Portsmouth! 

Q - QUOTES // I always find so much motivation in quotes and to be honest I do spend way too long searching through quotes on pinterest! My favourite quote at the moment is definitely 'let your smile change the world, but don't let the world change your smile' I just love everything about that quote!

R - ROSE GOLD // Like every other blogger and girl my age on the planet I am in love with everything rose gold, unfortunately I don't own a lot of things in that colour, but one day when I have my own office everything in it will be rose gold and it will be epic! 

S - SKINNY FRIES // Whenever I go out to eat anywhere and they have skinny fries as a side no matter what I get for my main I HAVE to get them, I don't know what it is about them but I just love them so so much! Gourmet Burger Kitchen skinny fries are definitely my favourite so far and unfortunately our nearest GBK's is a good 30 minute drive.. rubbish!

T - TEACHER // If you didn't already know, I'm currently at university studying early childhood studies, in order to do my PGCE and become a primary school teacher! I've recently done placement in a reception class and I'm so looking forward to the future when I have my own classroom and I get to meet and teach so many young children! 

U - UNFIT // Yep, I am super unfit. But I am really trying my hardest to change that, I really am! I've recently put on so much weight and I don't want to go on holiday feeling podgy so I do try my best to get on my cross trainer as much as possible and eat right, it's just so difficult when I start work at 6am, I'm too tired to work out! 

V - VOLUME // Whenever I play music I like to put it on blast! Music is literally everything to me and I think I picked up the loud music habit from my Dad who loves all his music loud too! I always remember him blasting music in the car when I was younger and I used to love it so so much!

W - WALKING // I love a good long walk on the beach with friends or with Ethan! I just find its the best time to have a good old chat about random topics, since I hardly ever find the time to chat with Ethan on a daily basis. If it were up to me we'd walk for hours, but he tends to get bored easily.. this is why I need a dog, haha! 

X - XFACTOR // I love everything about Xfactor and have pretty much watch every year of it since Leona Lewis won, haha! I love the fact that it brings the whole family together, especially around Christmas time when family is so special! 

Y - YOUTUBE // YouTube is my life and I really do spend way too long watching it every single day, it's just what I love doing when I'm bored and I pretty much always have around 10 videos in my 'watch later' list.. I also have such a strange variety of people who I'm subscribed too as well so the things I watch are so random but I love it! I would actually love to have my own channel some day, but I just don't think I can get my point across when I'm speaking... I much prefer writing it out in a blog! 

Z - ZOELLA // Zoella is everything, she's the inspiration for this blog and the reason why I started blogging! She was also a huge support for me when I first discovered that I had anxiety! Even thought I've never met her in my life and she doesn't know that I even exist, I am super thankful for her and everything she has done for me and others like me!
