I thought I’d keep my blog post light today and share a little more of myself with you all. I’ve decided to give you an insight into me by telling you some of my favourite things.
India is definitely my favourite girl’s name and it is my chosen name if I have a daughter, because it sounds so pretty on the tongue. I’ve also got a soft spot for the names Shivaan and Pereece, but I have no idea why.
My favourite boy’s names are Shay and Rio, but I’m now slyly obsessed with the Bible names Micah, Malachi, Machaiah and Matthew. I guess that means I like the letter M.
Silver has always been my favourite colour and red replaced gold as my other favourite many years back. However, pink is a very close favourite of mine, especially as I’m such a girly girl.
My favourite food in the world is chips! I think that this is because I love potatoes so much, but I actually have a slight obsession with chips, as I want to eat them whenever I smell them. Pizza was my previous favourite which was weird, because I don’t like cheese, tomatoes or bread unless it is toasted.
I’m not huge on sweets, but I’ve got a lot of love for lollipops and my favourite brand has to be Chupa Chups – I even got the name of Lollipop Lady once. And in line with sweets, my favourite chocolate is definitely Cadbury Mini Eggs. I get so excited when Easter comes back around and they are released in the shops.
As you probably know by now, my favourite film ever is Disney’s The Little Mermaid, because of the great songs, emotional ending and the simple fact of me wanting to be a mermaid. My other favourite film is Set It Off, because of its powerful storyline, strong characters and tear-jerker finale.
My favourite television shows include Diagnosis Murder, Gavin & Stacey, Strictly Come Dancing, Gilmore Girls and PhoneShop for various different reasons. However, my favourite television ever created has to be The Tribe, but I’m not entirely sure as to why. I do know that I love the eccentric costumes, make-up and unique element of the show.
Gospel is my favourite genre of music, because of its soothing ability and the blessings I can receive, but it has an incredibly broad spectrum. I am a huge fan of RnB, Hip Hop, Indie, Pop, Emo and Dancehall music though; it’s a little hard for me to pick a favourite genre from one of those.
Reading is my favoured activity during my spare time, especially the classic books and any historical fiction novels. I also love a good fashion magazine and the September style issue of Vanity Fair, which is my ultimate favourite issue of any magazines. Listening to music and scrapbooking are also some of my favourite things to do when I have some time on my hands; actually I listen to music pretty much anytime.
My favourite book is Gone with the Wind, because of the gripping story and the strength of the characters, whilst my favourite book series is The Flowers in the Attic series. The Flowers in the Attic series is an emotional set of books full of unbelievable plot lines and unexpected twists; it just makes you want to cry.
I love my black hair, but I have a weird, crazy love for red hair, especially red, curly hair. I think I would say that curly hair is my favourite hair texture. I also appreciate my brown eyes, but I have a weakness for green or hazel eyes, especially when they are accompanied by red hair.
As I love to express over and over again, my most favourite feature on a guy is long, beautiful hair; preferably in a ponytail. I also love when a guy is tall with long arms and big hands, I’m a sucker for a gorgeous smile and I’m crazy about a prominent nose.
My favourite shops are Debenhams and H&M, but I feel like this is slowly changing. My favourite sport is basketball, especially college basketball, and my favourite team out of all those I support is my UConn ladies. My favourite fruits are mango and pineapple. And my favourite words have to be gorgeous and cute.
My favourite Bible story is the story of Esther, the beautiful queen who saved her people, with the story of Joseph taking a close second. John 3:16 and Philippians 4:13 are my favourite Bible verses, but there are so many other texts I love. And my favourite hymns are Amazing Grace and Crown Him with Many Crowns.
These are a few of my favourite things. I hope you have gotten to know me a little better and gained a better understanding of me, as you’ve seen some of the things that make me tick. What are a few of your favourite things?
