'Get to know me' Tag and My Blog's First Birthday

Wow, I seriously cannot believe that today is A Beautiful Delight's first birthday!

It all started as a little hobby last year, after spending my summer off from uni watching the youtube videos of Tanya Burr and Zoella and venturing into reading their blogs too. I already had an unhealthy shopping and beauty hoarding addiction, and I thought why not turn this into something positive? So I did, and ABeautifulAddiction21, as this blog was originally named, was born!

I really do love blogging, and although I don't make enough time to do it, and I often get writers block, so frustrating! I'm really proud of how far I've come! I didn't think I would ever have a single person read my blog, let alone follow it, and although I do it because I enjoy it, and not for the followers, I really appreicate that others want to read what I write, so thankyou so much to those of you who do!

I thought I would do the 'get to know me tag' for those of you who have just started following me, or those of you who would just like to know a little more about me, I found it on Hannah Maggs blog, she's my current favourite beauty blogger and vlogger, if you haven't checked her out yet, go check her out at, trust me, you'll love her! 


Are you named after anyone?

No, but my name was supposed to be Chelsea, until my dad's friend told him he couldn't call me after a football team, which is a shame because I quite like it.

When was the last time you cried?

I seriously cannot remember, it'll come to me later I'm sure, I usually cry all the time, over anything and everything, but I've become a little tougher lately and am learning to take things a little easier so I've not cried too much.

Do you have children?

No, but I am becoming so broody lately, I would have one now, if the situation was right, but I want to find a career I'm comfortable in and buy a house first, as we still live at home.

If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

I would like to think that I'm a good friend, I think i'm a good listener, I'm loyal, I will drop what I'm doing if a friend really needs me and although I don't really go out, due to health issues, so I'm not too much fun, I will happily enjoy a glass of wine and have a good natter any night of the week, providing it's at home. So yes, I think I would :)

Do you use sarcasm a lot?

I use sarcasm, but not a great deal, I used to as a teenager, but I guess all teenagers do.

What's your favourite cereal?

I don't actually eat cereal anymore as most of them make me ill, I eat gluten, wheat and dairy free muesli with greek yoghurt and maple syrup every morning, does that count?

What's the first thing you notice about people?

wow, this is tough, I'd probably say appearance, if it's just someone I pass in the street. However if it's someone I meet, I'd say their voice, the way they sound and how they speak, it facinates me, is that wierd?

What's your eye colour?

Dark brown, I actually get a lot of compliments on my eyes, but I wish they were blue, I love blue eyes!

Scary movies or happy endings?

Happy endings without a doubt! If I watch a scary movie I'll have nightmares for weeks!

Favourite smells?

I love floral scents, at the moment, my favourite is The Body Shops White Musk Smokey Rose perfume, it's amazing and lasts all day!

Summer or Winter?

Winter because I love comfort, hot chocolate, warm dinners, socks, dressing gowns, coats, throws and candles = perfection.

Computer or television?

Computer, I've grown up listening to music rather than watching TV and my dad's a computer whizz so naturally I'm a computer geek, to a certain extent. At night dan will watch TV whilst I blog, which we are doing right now :)

What's the furthest you've been away from home?

I went to america when I was 6 with my mum and two of my aunties, my mum has three sisters and one lives in America, we went over to surprise her and be at her wedding, it was too expensive at the time so she didn't think we could make it. Although I was young I still remember the look on her face when she saw us, it's an amazing memory to keep.

Do you have any special talents?

I can talk super fast without taking a breath, when me and my mum or aunties get talking nobody can understand us, other than us, and the lads usually have to leave the room because they can't handle it :)

Where were you born?

I was born in a little town called Mansfield in the East Midlands, I'm currently still here, but I really want to move to London, it's just a case of twisting Dan's arm.

What are your hobbies?

Shopping, hoarding, blogging, reading and I do yoga once a week. I also love running but am a little too lazy, I need to get back into it, because I feel so much better when I do.

Favourite Movies?

Pretty much most Rom-coms but P.S I Love you is probably my all time favourite, I've watched it countless times.

I hope you enjoyed this tag, I thought it would be fun to do, I know I love reading tags like these.

Have you done any tags recently?

What could I do to improve my blog?
