Hi guys! ☺️
Hope you all had/are having a lovely Valentine's Day! ❤️
I'm not gonna lie, I'm such a big believer that it's lovely if you have someone special you want to spend the day with, and it is NOT a big deal at all if you don't, haha.
It's a bit crazy the amount of pressure this holiday can create on couples to act a certain way, gift certain things and plan a day or night out.
It's also a bit crazy the amount of undue pressure single people can feel or bring upon on themselves, haha.
But - my boss did get engaged this past weekend so that could be the reason I was in such a
lovey-dovey mood and totally embracing what the Valentine's Day spirit can bring. Nothing wrong with a day dedicated to acknowledging and embracing love, even more than we should every single other day of the year, right? ;)
But, that's just my two cents on it all. :P
And now that you know my thoughts on that, time for me to tell you even more about what I think! :P
The lovely Trishna, over at TipsCapsule, did a Get to Know Me Tag and I love reading posts like this, so I thought I would hop on the bandwagon and do the same ☺️
Check hers out here!
And onto my version of it!
R for Raashi ☺️
1. Do you have a middle name?
I don't :( I don't really know why, it just wasn't done!
2. What was your favourite subject in school?
Oooh in school, I loved English (all the reading and analysis and commentary). Psychology was definitely at the same level, I was lucky enough to study it for 3 years during high school!
And now at uni, I am still doing Psych, doing some Journalism - and some business as well! ☺️
3. What’s your favourite drink?
So, I'm not a massive soft drink person by any means. Love me some plain, good ol' water.
But oh my gosh, SMOOTHIES. LOVE.
If you guys know of Boost Juice wherever you are in the world, that place is honestly one of the ways to my heart.
Hot chocolate, Iced Chocolate, Chai Lattes, Iced Teas - ain't too bad either ;)
4. What’s your favourite song at the moment?
Ok, so Trishna mentioned Pillow Talk here. Which I most definitely have to agree with.
I'm also absolutely loving these three random picks!
Gold - Kiiara
Me, Myself & I - G-Eazy X Bebe Rexha
Lush Life - Zara Larsson
5. What would you name your children?
I can honestly say I haven't really thought about this at all.
I think Ria was in the mix when I was being named and I have always loved that name,
but let's just wait till we reach that stage :P
6. Do you participate in any sports?
I played Netball a fair bit when I was younger and hopefully will be starting back up this year!
But I've tried a bit of everything when I was younger - tennis, swimming, horse riding, lots of dance.
7. What’s your favourite book?
I will always, always say my favourite childhood book which was the Faraway Tree Series
by Enid Blyton :P
But with that being said, I used to read a lot and this year I'm making a conscious effort to do more of that (more on this to come in the near future!).
I also adore reading motivational, self-help books - nothing like an extra bit of positive energy in your life ☺️
8. What’s your favourite colour?
It changes a bit :P
I love bright colours in general, but the most consistent has probably been purple. Maybe also red. Recently, I really like turquoise and gold. I adore white, as well.
Okay, you know what?
GLITTER IS MY FAVOURITE COLOUR. ✨
9. What’s your favourite animal?
This is hard! Maybe elephants?
10. What’s your favourite perfume?
I CAN ANSWER THIS QUESTION NOW! I never really used to be able to:
OPIUM by Yves Saint Laurent.
11. What’s your favourite holiday?
I love everything about the Christmas Spirit!
12. Have you graduated from High School?
I have! I'm about to head into my 3rd year out of High School which is a bit crazy, haha.
13. Have you been out of the country?
A lot. I lived in Holland for two years when I was little, and during that we travelled all over Europe.
U.K., Belgium, Denmark, Switzerland, France, Italy, Germany, and more.
Haha, and then also going back to India (through Singapore or Dubai) for family holidays and events!
14. Do you speak any other languages?
I speak Hindi, and I learnt French for 5 years in High School, so I can do that a bit! :P
15. Do you have any siblings?
I have an older brother!
16. What’s your favourite store?
How on earth can I be expected to decide on just one? There's just so many, and I will shop from anywhere if I like something (and if they are some good bargains :P).
17. What’s your favourite restaurant?
I am definitely a bit of a foodie, and I love Italian anything. But favourite restaurant?
Just because I know those of you from the U.K. will know what I'm talking about, and cause I'm still suffering from withdrawals after it shut down all over Australia, Wagamamas.
The struggle is so real. :(
18. Do you like school?
I loved school a whole lot, I was super involved in tonnes of activities and groups since always.
That being said, I adore the Uni lifestyle so, so much now.
19. Who are some of your favourite YouTubers?
I don't watch YouTubers as much as I would like to!
Zoe Sugg at Zoella is definitely on that list though, Tanya Burr, Jim Chapman, that whole crew!
Love YouTube Beauty Vloggers as well when I get the chance to check them out.
20. What’s your favourite movie?
Um. Again. How on earth am I supposed to do this?
Parent Trap. Always.
Step Up :P
The Lizzie Mcguire Movie! Haha.
High School Musicals :P (Need to rewatch those!)
But a recent one that I was SO impressed by, The Intern.
Amazing movie, heartfelt, funny, meaningful, entertaining. Everything in one.
21. What are some of your favourite TV shows?
Ugh, guys, my friends know that I am so horrible with TV shows. I haven't started watching SO MANY because I am scared of the amount of time I will lose, haha.
The TV shows that have taken up my time though include:
GOSSIP GIRL ❤️
F.R.I.E.N.D.S. (Forever and always, a classic.)
The Fresh Prince of Bel Air
Saved by the Bell (Someone please tell me they know what I'm talking about!)
Parks and Recs
The Big Bang Theory
I really want to start Gilmore Girls!
22. PC or Mac?
I own a Mac now, so I should probably say that :P
23. What phone do you have?
My brother bought me an iPhone 5s for Christmas after high school ended, it was my first proper smartphone where I could actually use internet :P
THANK YOU, BROTHER.
24. How tall are you?
Can I ambitiously say 5 foot 4? :P
Haha, I don't know to be honest but somewhere between 157-160cm.
25. Any pets?
We had fish for a while when we were younger, but I am holding out to buy a dog later in life ☺️
And that's the end of getting to know me! At least for now :P
