What’s the best (or rather, worst) backhanded compliment you’ve ever received? If you can’t think of any — when’s the last time someone paid you a compliment you didn’t actually deserve?


I remember when I was 18 and was going to one of my friend’s house parties. There was a guy there who I really fancied and therefore wanted to look good for him, so I spent a lot of time picking out my clothes, doing my hair and makeup. My sister looked at me in amazement and said “wow you look like a princess.” My happiness was short lived though by my nan who agreed “Yeah, she does look like a princess… The one from Shrek.”



Automation has made it possible to produce so many objects — from bread to shoes — without the intervention of human hands (assuming that pressing a button doesn’t count). What things do you still prefer in their traditional, handmade version?


What I still prefer that’s handmade is cards. With handmade cards you can see the thought that has gone into them and also the time spent. I would happily pay more for a handmade card. These are some of the handmade cards that I have made.

A True Saint

A True Saint

In 300 years, if you were to be named the patron saint of X, what would you like X to be? Places, activities, objects — all are fair game.

I would be the Patron Saint of big cats, as these are my favourite animals and I do a lot of work in my life to help protect animals. Although I have done work to help smaller animals, such as working for the RSPCA, I also spent £3000 travelling to South Africa, to work in a game reserve. I managed to see many big cats including Lions, Cheetahs and Leopards. If I was rich, I would do everything in my power to protect big cats and especially save them from extinction. I would like to be remembered for the work I have done and the work I could potentially do and I would like to go on watching them and helping them from afar, even after my life ends.





Personality Test – INFJ Personality

The INFJ type is believed to be very rare (less than 1 percent of the population) and has an unusual set of traits. Even though their presence can be described as very quiet, INFJ personalities usually have many strong opinions, especially when it comes to issues they consider really important in life. If an INFJ is fighting for something, this is because they believe in the idea itself, not because of some selfish reasons. INFJ personalities are drawn toward helping those in need: they may rush to the place of a major disaster, participate in rescue efforts, do charity work, etc. INFJs see this as their duty and their purpose in life.

These tendencies are also strengthened by the fact that INFJ personalities have a unique combination of idealism and decisiveness. This means that their creativity and imagination can be directed toward a specific goal. Few other personality types have this trait, and this is one of the most important reasons why many INFJs are able to eventually realize their dreams and make a lasting positive impact.INFJs are masters of written communication, with a distinctively smooth and warm language. In addition, the sensitivity of INFJs allows them to connect to others quite easily. Their easy and pleasant communication can often mislead bystanders, who might think that the INFJ is actually a very sociable person.

INFJs should be careful to avoid “overheating” as their zeal and determination can sometimes get out of hand. As Introverts, INFJs need to have some “alone time” every once in a while; otherwise their internal energy reserves will get depleted really quickly. If this happens, the INFJ may surprise everybody around them by withdrawing from all their activities for a while, and since other people usually see INFJs as always friendly and sociable, this can leave them both surprised and concerned. INFJs take great care of other people’s feelings and expect others to return the favor. Unsurprisingly, people with this personality type are very sensitive and vulnerable to conflicts. Even the most rational INFJs may find it quite difficult to not take criticism personally—this is the INFJ’s Achilles’ heel.

Honestly… this is surprisingly correct!

Birthday Presents!

So on Sunday I turned 20 years old! and have finally, reluctantly left my teenage years. Three of my birthday presents haven’t arrived yet. One is True Blood Season 6 DVD, one is my ring being fixed and the last one is a surprise! But irrelevant of that, I still received some really amazing presents.

As all of my presents from my mum haven’t arrived yet, she treated me to this jacket when we were out together on a shopping trip, despite the fact that she wasn’t too keen on it, but she could see that I really loved it and she did agree that it was me, once I tried it on!

My dad bought me these two CDs that I asked for. Christina Perri and Imagine Dragons.

And he also bought me this amazing painting of my favourite singer! (Gerard Way)

Amy bought me this book, as she knows that I love to write!
