Lifestyle | Get to know Me Tag

Hellooo there,

Lately, I've been trying to get into the habit of posting regularly here on Krystal Spring and I've really been enjoying sharing my thoughts on life, fashion and posting cheeky little recipes I enjoy and have discovered. So today I thought it might be fun to share a little about myself.

I saw this Get to know me tag over on Jess Cantoni's Food and Lifestyle Blog and I loved the questions so thought I'd give it ago, I haven't been tagged or anything but like that matters.

So here it goes...

1. Are you named after someone?
Yes, my dad is a massive nerd when it comes to superhero's. He was one of those kids that grew up reading comics. He named me after a Marvel hero called Crystal the Inhuman. She appeared in the Fantastic Four comics and her powers include being able to redirect the elements; Earth, wind, fire and water.

2. When was the last time you cried?
It's hard to remember to be honest, I don't cry very often. 
Was most likely when watching a mushy film or something.

3. Do you have kids?
Nope, I have a cat baby, does that count?

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I'd like to think so, I consider myself to be a pretty loyal person and I'd like to think they would be able to come to be if they need a friend. I'm a pretty good listener :)

5. Do you have a guilty pleasure?

Yes, cheese. I especially like Smoked Applewood and spicy cheese. Me and my husband like to treat ourselves to a cheese and wine evening now and again. The best thing we've had is Baked Camembert with Garlic. Served with crusty bread its just... Uh! Amazing!

6. Do you like handwriting? 
I really do, I find it really therapeutic.  I like the sensation of the pen gliding across the paper.. There's something really calming about writing down your thoughts and musings. 

7. What is your favourite cereal?
It's a tie. Between Curiously Cinnamon and Coco pops.   

8. What is the first thing you notice about people?
Their eyes and mouth.

9. What colour are your eyes?
Hazel :)

10. Scary movie or happy endings?
Always a happy ending, I hate being scared.

11. Favourite TV show?
Gilmore girls and friends, I really wish they'd put them on Netflix.

12. Summer or Winter?
Summer.. Winter just makes me feel gloomy

13. Hugs or Kisses?
Kisses ;)
14. What's the furthest you've been from home?

15. Do you have any special talents?
I'm ridiculously clumsy. Just this weekend I've managed to spill hot tea on the hubby ( which he was very happy about.. NOT) and I sliced my thumb cutting cake, which is clearly a complicated task ha

16. Where were you born?
East London, UK

17. What are your hobbies?
I love to draw, and I love to cook and I really enjoy creative writing.

18. Do you have any pets?

I have a cat called Cherry.

19. Favourite movie? 
John Carter

20. What's your favourite animal?
Penguins :)

21. What did you want to be when you grow up?
I really wanted to be a vet and then as I got a little older I wanted to a scientist because I liked mixing chemicals and learning about it at school, that was until I mixed some bathroom cleaning products and burnt myself.. clever me ha

I hope you enjoyed this little insight into who the girl behind the blog.
