Hello Lovelies!

This is my first ever post here on My Trending Stories, and I'm so excited to be joining this community of writers and creative minds. Seeing as this maybe the first time you've read one on my blogs I thought it'd be a good opportunity for you to get to know me. So here are 20 random questions I found on the internet to help us get to know each other!


1. What is your middle name?

Well as you can probably tell I do this blogging thing anonymously, for particular reason its just how I've always done it, but between you and me my middle name is May, but shh its a secret!

2. What was your favourite topic at school? 

Up to and during GCSE's I would say English and Music where my favourites, writing and creating music are still two of my passions and are both part of my job now! Then during A Levels my first favourite was Psychology, I did and still do find it so interesting how we work and what makes different people react and so on but also my teachers were amazing which makes all the difference. I also loved photography and was my strongest A level topic!

3. What is your favourite drink?

Day - to - day my favourites are a good old fashioned cuppa (couldn't get much more British) and also water, which sounds boring but is just so refreshing! Oh and Rose wine, couldn't forget that one!

4. What is your favourite song at the moment?

At the moment it would be 'Let The World See The Light' by Mahalia, its a super chilled acoustic track from her EP, I recently rediscovered this song after seeing her perform a few years ago at the Apollo in London as a support act for Ed Sheeran.

5. What is your favourite food?

This is too hard to answer without breaking it down to mains and dessert because, well, I love food! SO for mains I'd say Sweet and Sour (Quorn) Chicken or a some sort of fragrant curry. For dessert it'd be between lemon tart and chocolate fudge cake!

6. What was the last thing you bought?

Other than boring things like petrol and a pack of gum it would have been a grey jersey swing dress ig found in the Topshop sale for only £7, what a bargain, couldn't say no, and I love it!

7. Favourite book of all time?

I have to admit I don't always read that much as I have to be in a certain mood to be able and get into a book without feeling guilty! But out of the books that I have read I'd say my favourite is 'The Psychopath Test' by Jon Ronson, if you're like me and into Psychology but don't want a heavy read, this is perfect, it's funny and informative s definitely check it out!

8. Favourite Perfume?

For the summer I'd say Ralph Lauren, Big Pony Collection No. 2, or Chanel Chance, the green one to be a bit more specific. For autumn/winter I don't have a holy grail so if you do let me know what it is so I can have a sniff and find a favourite too!

9. Favourite celebration?

Easy... Christmas!!

10. Relationship status?

I am in a relationship, and I'm not ashamed to say we me on the infamous app that is Tinder, so it's not all bad on there, although both of us were on there as a bit of a joke and so happened to decide to meet up (for a nice actual date) and the rest is history. 

11. What is your favourite country?

I'm very fortunate to have done a fair amount of travelling in my 20 years which I'm very thankful for, however out of everywhere I think my favourite is Turkey, everyone is so friendly and welcoming and the culture and country is so colourful and beautiful!

12. How many siblings do you have?

I have one older brother, who is currently cycling around the world with his best friend on a tandem bike, not only to raise money for 3 amazing charities but also to attempt to set a new world record! Check them out at: thetandemmen.com

13. What is your favourite shop?

To shop online it would be Asos but if I'm out and about shopping I'm mainly drawn to Topshop or Bershka.

14. Favourite restaurant?

My main chain restaurant favourites would be Pizza Express (Hello... dough balls!) and also Chiquitos because who doesn't love a big old burrito!

15.  Favourite film?

My favourite from childhood to now would be The Lion King, but films I've seen recently would be Good Will Hunting, which I only watch a very recently but is definitely a new favourite!

16. Favourite TV shows?

Great British Bake Off... and its coming back soon so I'm very excited. Also on the other end of the genre spectrum is American Horror story, although I found it hard to get into the most recent seaon Hotel and never finished it, but up until then I loved it!

17. PC or Mac?

Mac, and not sure I could go back (ooh good rhyme) to using a PC, ironic as I type this on my bofriends laptop.

18. What phone do you have?

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

19. How tall are you? 

Not too sure as I haven't been measured recently but around 5 ft 4... so short!

20. Can you cook?

I think so, everyone I cook for compliments my food... unless the want to spare my feelings by complimenting and pretending! Well I enjoy my food either way... however I prefer baking, I love it and the cakes that I get to eat after! Can you tell I love food yet?!

I hope you enjoyed these random get to know me facts, I don't want this to be a one sided conversation though, let me know some fun facts about you and come follow me on Twitter and Instagram (@brighteyedboho) and keep the chat going there!
