The Self Love Tag

June 9, 2019
Blog post

Last week I was tagged by the lovely Holly Da Silva to do the Self Love tag. I’d never actually heard of this tag before so I was pretty excited to do it! Make sure you all check out Holly’s blog where she writes about food, fashion, beauty and lifestyle and also take a look at her Instagram page for super cute outfit posts!

The Self Love Tag Rules

  • Answer all the questions honestly.
  • Tag 5 people to take part.


1.) What is something that is getting you down at the moment?

Honestly the fact the summer is coming is getting me down. I am not a fan of summer. I hate the heat, the bugs, the hay fever, the clothes. Ugh it’s just not for me!

2.) What is something that makes you happy?

I’ve been working really hard on improving my blog in terms of the content I’m putting out plus engaging more with other bloggers and over the last couple of months, I’ve really seen an improvement so I’m very happy my work seems to be paying off!

3.) Name 3 guilty pleasures

  1. Trashy TV like Love Island and Made in Chelsea, I’m so addicted to these shows!
  2. Chocolate, I could eat chocolate all day every day. There is never a time where I’m not in the mood for chocolate.
  3. Buying makeup/beauty products I don’t need. I know I should buy yet another eyeshadow palette but they’re all so pretty and I need them!

4.) What is something about yourself you want to improve on?

Like Holly did in her post I’m going to split this into physically and mentally.

Physically I’d like to improve my weight. I was doing really well with my weight loss a couple of months ago and had managed to lose 11 pounds. Since Easter, though the weight loss has been on a bit of a halt so I really want to get back into it as it made me so happy and much more confident in my clothes.

Mentally I’d like to worry less and just ‘go with the flow’. I hate how much tiny little things bother me and how I overthink absolutely everything, it stops me from doing a lot of things.

5.) When was the last time you belly laughed?

There was a morning a few weeks ago now involving helium balloons and singing that had me almost crying with laughter!

6.) What is your biggest insecurity/fear?

Being cheated on is definitely my biggest fear and I also have a phobia of dying which then makes me scared of pretty much everything where death or injury can potentially happen. I’m a bit of a mess really haha.

7.) Name a song that always cheers you up when you’re down

Any Christmas song. Doesn’t matter what time of year it is, if I’m feeling down I can always whack on Step into Christmas or the Muppet Christmas Carol Soundtrack and feel instantly happier.

8.) Name three things you like about yourself

Oh wow 3?! That’s tough.

  1. My eye colour; it’s quite an unusual colour where it looks either grey, green or blue depending on the lighting.
  2. My taste in TV shows; Aside from the trashy TV I watch some pretty great shows and am always introducing people to new series.
  3. My boobs; being completely honest here but I’m an E cup and proud haha they’re the only thing about my body that I think is pretty decent.

9.) What is an achievement that has made you proud of yourself this year

Is it bad that I can’t think of anything? There’s nothing big I’ve really achieved so far this year. Toward the end of the year, I’ll officially be a homeowner so I think that’s going to be my biggest achievement this year.

10.) Tell us your happiest memory

I have so many happy memories it’s hard to choose just one. Every birthday and Christmas is always a happy memory, every holiday and staycation, getting engaged last year. There are a million happy memories!

    Haven’t seen this tag before! Interesting to learn more about you and thanks for sharing 😀 trashy TV is a good way to wind down sometimes and I feel you about summer, I don’t like to be too hot either x

      I think that’s why I like trashy tv so much, it’s just easy and mindless to watch after work ? I’d much rather be cold and warm up then be hot and try to cool down if that makes sense, I just can’t handle the heat at all, it makes me so miserable!

        I completely agree, just need to zone out sometimes and trashy TV helps! I prefer to try to warm up than cool down too x

    I love a good tag! Such a nice way to learn more about the face behind the blog! 🙂
    My biggest fear is dying as well and some days it completely consumes my every thought! Glad to see I’m not the only one 🙂
    Great post! I may just do this tag myself!
