As its a new year and after reading the lovely Just My Look’s blog post “50 Facts About Me!”, I decided it would be a really nice idea.
I was nominated for a UK Blog Award and thought it would be great to get this up, but it took a little longer than expected. The last couple of months have been really stressful and my anxiety has been up the wazoo, but now I’m ready to get back into this and am feeling so much better.
I’ve been blogging for a long time now, but have never done one of these types of post. I think I might have done one on my YouTube…
I don’t work well with thinking up questions or anything like that so I googled, get to know me tag, and went for the 1st image. So here we go!
1. Full name.
2. Zodiac sign.
3. 3 Fears
Spiders, being taken away by the men in white coats, and never owning my own home. (in no particular order)
4. 3 things I love
My family (Jarek,my boyfriend included FYI), I LOVE making a house a home , and chocolate.
5. My best friend
I should probably say Jarek, but I think I have to say my oldest friend Elaine!
6. Last song I listened to
Ok so lets keep in mind its Christmas time now!!! Jingle Bells by Frank Sinatra (I’m listening to Christmas FM)
7. 4 Turn ons
I like a Tall man!! I truly believe that your eyes are the window to your soul, so eyes, and someone I can be an odd ball/myself with, I love a bit of Craic and the bants so this is a massive turn on for me!
8. 4 turn offs
Someone cocky, two faced, full of self importance, and selfish.
9. What colour underwear am I wearing right now.
I’m currently bra free as I’m in my PJs and my pants are black with a largish pink rose patten.
10. How many tattoos / piercings I Have.
I have my ears pierced once, but I think I’d like to get this done again! I did have my belly button done but it has closed up, and Ive no tattoos.
11. The reason why i started Blogging.
I was having a hard time in the job I was working in and just needed an outlet really. I just needed something for me!
12. How I feel right now.
I actually feel a bit anxious, sometimes its just hard to shake.
13. Something I really, really want.
A Cartier watch
14. My current relationship status.
In a LONG term relationship
15. Meaning behind my URL.
I love everything that glitters so I always knew I wanted a website to sell my jewellery so Magpie just felt right, but when I decided to start a blog it didn’t seem right. If I see a magpie alone I panic and always look for its other half and one day I just thought “thats what I’ll do, I’ll double up the Magpie” and so MagpieMagpie.ie was born, in my head anyway.
16. My favourute movie(s)
I love the original Footloose, but anything with Fred Astaire in it and I’m set to be a couch potato.
17. My favourite song(s)
I actually don’t think I have one… There are loads I like, but my fav song has to be something special to me. I will add this to my New Years Resolutions!
18. My Favourite band.
My all time favourite would have to be Coldplay, but I’m loving The Weeknd at the moment!
19. 3 Things that upset me
A lot actually. I’m highly sensitive so I take many things personally. But the TOP 3 Being lied to, backstabbing and people only thinking of themselves, not really thinking of others circumstances.
20. 3 things that make me happy.
Cupcakes, I love shopping, and just cuddling up with Jarek watching a movie.
21. What I find attractive in other people.
I thought this question was similar to number 7…
22. Someone I miss.
This might seem really odd, but I miss my dog Ted, he was my best friend, and a little shit! 😉 I think about him at least once a day. I can’t say that for anyone else I’ve lost.
23. Someone I love.
I need to learn how to love myself more!
24. My relationship with my parents.
I do not speak to my father, and I get on well with my mother.
25. My favourite holiday.
I Love Christmas the most I think, I can’t wait till we find a new apartment and I can film more cookery stuff and decoration stuff!!

I’m not sure I have one yet, but I shall make it one of my 2017 new years resolutions to connect more with the blogging community.
27. A blogger that I’d date.
I dont actually follow many male bloggers, now that I think of it, but I do have quite the girl crush on Anna from The Anna Edit.
28. A confession
I bought my sister a selection box for her stocking and I ate it… oops!
29. 3 Things that annoy me easily.
Because of the type of anxiety I have I find many things very stressful and annoying, BUT when people don’t listen, when the cartons for recycling are not washed out and not even put in recycling and just left on the side ( like is it that hard to put it in the fucking bin?? Is it?!), and double standards, I think we are all culprits of this, but I hate it!
30. My Favourite animal(s).
I love lots of animals!! I have a whole board on my Pinterest dedicated to them. I do like foxes though.
31. My Pets.
Sadly I have none at the moment. Ted was my first dog, but I always wish I got him when I was younger as I went away for college and moved to London soon after and I feel like I abandoned him! I’ve also had a few fish in my day.
32. One thing I lied about.
I lie everyday to myself about how much chocolate I’ve eaten.

Finding somewhere to live here in Jersey CI is very difficult, and stressful! I’ve been worrying about that since we moved here really…
34. An embarrassing moment.
My whole life is an embarrassing moment!
35. Where I work.
I work in a luxury Jewellers where I sell high value jewellery and watches. I love it! I also do their social media which is great!
36. Something that’s constantly on my mind.
Am I worth loving. I’m not sure why or how this feeling of worthlessness crept into my soul, but for as long as I can remember I have felt this way.

A. Every morning after I get up and Jarek is out of our room, I have to make the bed in a certain way.
B. I like to toilet roll to face out.

In my personal life I’d like to move forward with Jarek and hopefully get engaged.
At work I hope to do JET 2 and move onto CAD design.
With my blog I would like to have a little following / community where we can chat and vent and ask any and every question. A safe place for us to share ideas!
39. Something I fantasise about.
I’ve always felt very weak! I often wish I had made ninja skills.
