I seem to be in a bit of a slump

Please excuse the lack of posting the last while. I unfortunately can’t seem to find the motivation to write anything for the blog at the moment, which is annoying, both for myself and my readers. I am still trying out products, and hopefully will be back with something new and interesting to show you soon. Life, though, is being awkward. Please bear with me!

Something Else Saturday: The Q&A Session

SES-QAthFirst of all, let me apologise for the lack of a Face Friday this week. Due to a bit of messing around involving me, a kidney and a hospital, not a scrap of makeup  has been on my face this week. Shocking, I know, but I’ll make up for it next week, I promise. Anyway, for this weeks Something Else Saturday, I’ll do something a little different. Today, we’re going to do a Q&A.

What this means is, if there is a question on any subject you want to ask me, now is the time to do so. As much as it possible I will answer for you. Think of it like a Reddit AMA (ask me anything) except it’s, well, here.

So, if you’re reading this, join me in the comments and let me know what you’d like to find out from me! I’ll see you down below.

Something Else Saturday: The TMI Tag

SES-TMIthSo, I was tagged to do the TMI tag by Samantha from All The Buzz, and as it’s Something Else Saturday, I thought, sure, why not! If these aren’t your thing, stop reading is the best option, otherwise, carry on!


1: What are you wearing? 

Jeans, t-shirt, sweater and thick wooly socks. Not going anywhere, so may as well be comfortable

2: Ever been in love? 

Yes, on occasion. Was once in a long distance relationship for 5 years. Currently (not at all blissfully) single.

3: Ever had a terrible breakup? 

We all have. Does it need to be asked?

4: How tall are you? 

5′ 11″, more if wearing heels.

5: How much do you weigh? 

Too much.

6: Any tattoos? 

4. A breast cancer ribbon on my right wrist/forearm. A heart on my right foot. A butterfly and cherry blossoms on my left foot and a Celtic design on my lower back.

7: Any piercings? 

Currently just my ears. Previously my tragus (the little flap of cartilage at the front of the ear), my nose and my tongue. The tragus came out when I lost the ball, and I had to take the nose and tongue out when I went into hospital, as they didn’t mix with procedures and machines. I’ll get my nose redone though.

8: OTP? 

What does this even mean? I’ll come back to it.

9: Favourite show? 

Love a bit of Criminal Minds. Or 30 Rock (Marry Me Liz Lemon!)

10: Favourite bands? 

Not exactly a band kinda girl, but love Katie Melua, Vienna Teng, Sandi Thom, Ingrid Michaelson & Gin Wigmore (I’ve a thing for female vocalists)

11: Something you miss? 

Working (damn unemployment)

12: Favourite song?

Depends on my mood. See favourite artists above. Or, when requesting something from a DJ, Take on Me or Karma Chameleon.

13: How old are you? 

27 (Eek! I’m running out of 20’s)

14: Zodiac sign? 


15: Quality you look for in a partner? 

Bit cheesy, but soul-mate. Knowing you can be with them your whole life and never get sick of their presence.

16: Favourite Quote? 

“There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path” – Morpheus, The Matrix.

Very true. You can know what needs to be done, but at the end of the day you’ve got to stop thinking about it and actually do it.

17: Favourite actor? 

Tina Fey.

18: Favorite color?

Purple. Such a beautiful rich colour,

19: Loud music or soft?

Soft music usually, but my collection runs from ABBA to ZZ Top with too many stops in between.

20: Where do you go when you’re sad? 

My room. If I’m feeling sad I tend to go and hide. I’d even hide from Twitter and Facebook if I’m really sad.

21: How long does it take you to shower? 

From 5 minutes to 25 minutes depending on what I’m doing in there.

22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? 

What’s a morning? Seriously though, excluding shower, anywhere from 30 – 90 minutes depending on just how respectable I need to look.

23: Ever been in a physical fight? 

Yes, many times.

24: Turn on?

A great personality and a smile that lights up the persons face and the room. Something about it says being around them is a good thing.

25. Turn off?

Arrogance, cockiness and bitchiness to extremes. We can all be all of the above at times, but if that is your life, I go so cold so quickly.

26: The reason I started blogging? 

I had 2 wordpress websites to manage in work, and needed to be a bit creative in writing, so it gave me a way to play without screwing up the work systems. Now I do it for the fun and distraction.

27: Fears? 

Loneliness. I have no problem being alone, but I hate being lonely.

28: Last thing that made you cry? 

Finding out my aunt had died. I didn’t cry, but did weep a bit.

29: Last time you said you loved someone? 

Probably to Cat, more than likely on Twitter, certainly over something silly in the last 72 hours.

30: Meaning behind your blog name? 

I’m Robyn. I rant and rave. What more meaning do you need.

31: Last book you read?

Harry Potter 1-7 in 5 days.

32: The book you’re currently reading?

Nineteen Eighty-Four. How very Orwellian life has become.

33: Last show you watched? 

Watchdog. Boring daytime TV, but it was on while downstairs having coffee.

34: Last person you talked to? 

My mum. We’re always here. We talk.

35: The relationship between you and the person you last texted? 

My dad, who at the time was on the way back from the airport. I was telling him to call when he was nearby and I’d put the kettle on. (Edit: Since drafting this and publishing it, change to Cat. Friend and bad influence, who was purring at cute guys on the bus)

36: Favourite food? 

Pizza, or Mexican.

37: Place you want to visit?

Scandinavia. Norway, Sweden. Lovely places, with lovely people.

38: Last place you were? 


39: Do you have a crush?

It would be wrong of me to not say Cat. Love you!

40: Last time you kissed someone? 

That would be some time ago. I’ve actually forgotten when.

41: Last time you were insulted? 

I actually can’t remember when. It’s good not having people in my life who would usually insult me.

42: Favourite flavour of sweet? 

Caramel. Just give me caramel and nobody gets hurt.

43: What instruments do you play?? 

Eh… (computer) keyboard?

44: Favourite piece of jewellery?

I don’t really have a favourite, but I do have a couple of pieces with hearts which I love.

45: Last sport you played? 

I used to play softball, but gave it up when my knees couldn’t take much more of crouching down on them (I was a catcher). I weighed more then than I do now.

46: Last song you sang? 

I don’t sing and I don’t dance… while sober. Have been known to mime along with songs while in my room.

47: Favourite chat up line?

I don’t have one. Stems from being single for so long.

48: Have you ever used it?


49: Last time you hung out with anyone? 

A couple of weeks ago at a blogger event. Me of the very inactive social life. (Edit: Her Party)

50: Who should answer these questions next?

I think this tag has been going around for a while, so I don’t know who has and hasn’t been tagged. If you’re reading it and  haven’t done it yet, it’s your turn.

8 (again): OTP?

Still nothing for this. You got 49 other answers, be content with them!
