Day 31 – A Weird Quirk of Mine

31 Day Blog Challenge, Blogging Challenges

It’s the last day of this challenge! It almost feels like this has come around all too quickly. I’m going to finish this challenge off with what I would consider as a weird quirk which I have.

Personally, I think it might be my humour. I am one of the most relaxed and laid back people ever, and the humour I enjoy is generally quite dry and sarcastic. I would guess that sometimes people don’t fully understand or ‘get’ it, but that doesn’t matter! I’m not the type to turn my nose up and consider that person as a waste of my time.

That may be also another thing about me…I’m literally accepting of anyone! But please don’t take that for granted, as that happens all too often!

I would like to thank you all if you have been following my blog throughout the month! Of course, I will post as regularly as possible – but the everyday challenge for this ends now! So I’m going to give my typing fingers a rest for a few days!

If you haven’t already, please ensure you subscribe so you don’t miss out on future posts or daily challenges which I may do!

See you soon,

Day 29 – Top Things On My Bucket List

31 Day Blog Challenge, Blogging Challenges, Out & About

I’m not much of a bucket list person, but I do have a list of things that I’d like to accomplish. I use website Bucketlist.org to become inspired for ideas that I’d like to accomplish. Here’s a snapshot of what is listed…

  1. Take a picture, everyday for a whole year – This sounds like a challenge, and something that will take some thinking to make it successful. But it’ll be great to look back at how much a person can change throughout a year. I would also publish this as a photo album for myself.
  2. Do a Colour Run – What could be better than running in white clothing, only to get covered in powder and paint of every colour known?! That’s right up my street!
  3. Visit New Zealand – From the research I’ve done, it’s such a beautiful country. I’d love to go and explore fully.
  4. Visit Australia – While I’m there, I may as well visit the neighbours! I love Australia too, and really want to go spend some time in Sydney.
  5. Spend Christmas in New York – Yep, I want to live like they do in the movies and spend a Christmas in NYC, doing all the things that come along with it! Ice skating, Central Park…the lot!

Do you have a bucket list? Is there anything that you would love to accomplish?

Day 27 – What Makes Me Feel Better, Always

31 Day Blog Challenge, Blogging Challenges

I’m a very simple human when I need to feel better. If I’m sad, I follow the steps below…

  1. Take some time away – Sometimes you just need to relax, and not see other humans.
  2. Eat chocolate, or cake – Because it’s called ‘comfort food’ for a reason.
  3. Netflix – This is the part where I become a total introvert and go on a major Netflix binge.
  4. Be happy again – Simple! Repeat if necessary.

Nice and easy recipe for happiness, which I follow whenever I feel the need. This always makes me feel 100% better, without the need to talk to others…or even see them!

Rhysaphine, the introvert.

P.S. Happy Birthday, Mum!

Day 26 – 5 Favourite Blogs

31 Day Blog Challenge, Blogging Challenges

This is hard, as I’m not really a blog reader…even though I’m writing in one. It just doesn’t make any sense! However, going against the idea of today’s task I’ve listed 5 places I visit online for reading purposes. Some are a mix of blogs, so that counts…right?

  1. BuzzFeedHow is it possible not to love BuzzFeed?! With the quizzes, humour and pictures of animals, alongside topical news stories…it has everything!
  2. Twitter I’m always tweeting. There’s not a day which goes by without some sort of tweet from me.
  3. Burton ManThis is a blog run by a popular fashion retailer, and I love it. I’m often on this blog a few times a week to see what’s new.
  4. InstagramAlthough I don’t post as often as I should, it’s one of the social media sites which I would not be able to live without!
  5. Menswear Style – I follow this blog on Instagram too, and I do love it! It covers a little bit of everything from styling tips, to lifestyle and even jobs!

There you have it – a brief look into my internet browser history!

Day 25 – Best Physical Features

31 Day Blog Challenge, Blogging Challenges

Okay describing the best physical thing about myself? I really never know how to answer questions like this…

If I was to pick the best physical feature about myself, I would probably pick my eyes. Yep, the window to the soul – except I would say mine is a deep ocean of calmness…sometimes.

Just check out my eyes….

 

I mean, they’re always so inviting

I'm so awkward at snapchatting!! #snapchat #talkdirty #jasonderulo #dirty #pic

Day 24 – A Difficult Time In My Life

31 Day Blog Challenge, Blogging Challenges, Out & About

This is quite a difficult part to answer, mostly because I wouldn’t say that I’ve had many difficult times in the 22 years of my existence. However, I do have one…

Back in the summer of 2012, I lost my 2 grandmothers, from both sides of the family – they both died within a week of each other. For me and my family, this was difficult to come to terms with, and the shock was devastating. It meant that there was virtually no scope to reflect properly.

It was a very sad time for me, but I am hugely thankful for all that they have done and contributed to my life to make me the person I am today. I hope that person stays happy and is a lovely person!

RIP Grandma Smith and Grandma Kelly
