my blog is two!

My name is Alice,
And I have these obsessions...

Exactly two years ago to date, I wrote my first blog post. It was a Tumblr TMI tag and so I am going to redo that. Let's kick things off...




Middle Name?

I still don't have one...

Favourite School Subject or Class?

I don't have to have one now because I am no longer at school. When I was at school my favourite subject was biology. Our teacher was amazing, and our class was like a little family! When I was at uni, earlier in the year, my favourite class was definitely our midwifery tutorials. I really only went to them for the entertainment factor. As you can imagine, everyone got pretty riled up when we spoke about the controversial topics. 

Favourite Drink?

Water. It is so super important to stay hydrated during all seasons at all times of the day. I try for at least 2 litres of water a day. I wish I had have known and realised this earlier in my hormonal teen years because I feel like I could have almost gone 100% pimple free with it.

Favourite Food?

I love all food. Seriously. There is really only one or two things I truly can not stand and they would have to be prawns and eggs! I love eggs in cakes (Doesn't everyone?) but give me a plain boiled egg and I might vomit at your feet.

Favourite Song?

I still don't have a favourite song, but I love all music and am always open to new music suggestions.

Last thing you bought?

Fake Adidas Shoes off of an app I have called Carousell. It is kind of like eBay, where you can sell new and second hand items.

Favourite Book?

The only books I had time to read in the first half of this year were textbooks and apart from that, I really haven't sat down and read a book for a very long time.

Favourite Colour?

As I said word for word in my original post. Pink. It always has been and I think it always will be.

Do you have any pets?

At the moment, while I am sitting in my bedroom on 24 January writing bits and pieces of this post (all the answers that haven't changed and never will change), I have Pepper and Tilly (the family dogs), Orrio my cat and two goldfish. The goldfish don't have names at the moment, but my cousins Abbey and Max haven't met them yet, so I am sure as soon as that happens they will have names such as Speckled or Goldy. I think I might keep them nameless so that if I move out and can't take them with me I won't feel the need to cry about them. 

Update on the goldfish: It is now 22 July and the goldfish got pretty sick. I'm not too sure what caused it but I moved them to the big pond we have out the front of our house and they are thriving out there.  

Favourite Perfume?

Vera Wang Princess. It will forever be the scent of my graduation and formal.

Best Holiday?

I am generally pretty happy with any holiday but the best holiday I have been on to date would have to be schoolies week on Tangalooma. I spent a week on Moreton Island with heaps of my friends.

Have you ever travelled overseas?

A few years ago I travelled to Italy with school. I would happily do it all over again, anyday. We travelled around for 2 weeks from Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast, Florence, Venice and many other places. Then for the third week we stayed with a host family in Asti in the North. One of my friends from high school and I spent our time updating a blog which we really enjoyed doing.

Do you speak another language?

I learnt Italian when I was in high school but because I left that subject in the final years of high school and I have never continued on with it, I have lost the talent. I still know a few little things like "Ciao. Mi chiamo Alice. Io abito in Nambour e ho diciotto anni". Yeah- I'm pretty talented.

Do you have any siblings?

I have one baby (not so baby anymore though, she's 16 this year! WHAT!!!) sister, Heidi.

Favourite Store?

As I said last time, I don't think I really have a favourite store as I just go looking for certain things when I go shopping.

Favourite Restaurant?

Genkotsu Ramen in Toowong..deeeeeeeeee lish

Favourite Movie?

I love all of the Back to the Future Movies but by far my absolute #1 favourite movie of all time would have to be Love Actually.

Favourite Television Show?

Full House. What else could it possibly be?

Can you cook?

I love to cook. I would happily spend everyday cooking if I could. Everything from tiny baby cakes with pink icing and sprinkles to spicy chicken curry. 

Secret/ Not so Secret Talent?

I can't say that I have any really outstanding talents at this point in my life. I can clean make up brushes pretty well.. maybe that's an idea for a blog post...

What is your favourite post on your blog so far?



Definitely the Retail Therapy one I put up at the beginning of the year. It took me so long to get all the photos perfect and I ended up squished against my bedroom door trying to get the camera at the right angle.

Once again, that's the end of that. Let's wait another year and see how things pan out. If you want to see my first "TMI" tag you can clickity click here.
