Get to know me!

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.
Home Alone.
Aladdin.
Step Up :P
The Lizzie Mcguire Movie! Haha.
High School Musicals :P (Need to rewatch those!)
Mamma Mia.
The Giver!
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
Modern Family
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.
Shortie life. 

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 
I'm not going to tag any of you specifically, but I would LOVE to read versions of this tag from you all, if you want to give it a go! 
If you do, make sure to leave me a link in the comments below so I can check it out!

New blog post will be up next Tuesday!!!

    1. OH MY GOSH, I am so excited that someone else knows about Saved by the Bell, none of my friends actually know about it apart from knowing that I mention it every now and then, haha. ALSO - I literally said to some people the other day that I was feeling like watching some old school Sabrina The Teenage Witch! Hehe, love how many similarities we have! So sweet of you Saira, thanks for commenting! :)

    I can't get over how similar we are! :D Purple is my favourite colour(well,more than others,as I love all of them hahah)- I even used it as a name on physics contests in elementary and high school :D
    Gossip girl 💜(aka Chuck and Blair forever)
    And you like the same youtubers and same movies as I do! :D
    I am not very good at finding some self-help/motivational books though(only business ones hahah) so if you have some recommendations, put them in a blog post :D I would love to check them out :)

  8. I LOVED reading your version Raashi, and girl, you have travelled .. a lot lol. Travelling is so fun, you get to explore and get out your comfort zone! And as to Parent Trap, all day everyday, I will never get bored of it, if my ears weren't pierced, I wouldn't lie in saying, I possibly would've tried piercing my own with an apple behind the globe haha ♥

    1. Thank YOU for inspiring me to do my own version of this tag, so fun! Hahaha...definitely done my fair share of travelling already *monkey covering eyes emoji* - but more to come, fingers crossed! The Parent Trap is a classic, no debating it. Hahaha, I love that you said that, my friend and I watched the movie the other day and were talking about so many things they did in that movie that we thought were the coolest and we started trying to do or say similar things when we were younger, haha.

  9. Such a lovely tag, Raashia. I'm all for anything Enid Blyton when it comes to my favourite books, too, and ahhh, I love that you said glitter is your favourite colour, haha. I loved your answers about your favourite films, too. Such nostalgia!

  10. This is such a cute idea, I love getting know the people behind the blog a lot more! I am so with you on chai Lattes (I'm not a coffee fan!) Also totally a fan of so many of your TV shows, generally don't know what I will do when Gossip Girl gets taken off Netflix! xx

    1. Oh my gosh, YES - I sometimes feel like I'm totally alone on the not liking coffee boat, haha. A friend of mine suggested chai lattes as alternatives, and I do love them! Gossip Girl is amazing. The fashion and drama and characters and everything! Haha. I started rewatching some episodes here and there recently (I got given the boxset a while back - it's an investment! :P).

      Thank you for reading, Caroline! :)

      Oh my goodness, SO MANY, haha. Hmmm to name a few off of the top of my head, classics like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Khabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, and then Na Tum Jaano Na Hum, 3 Idiots, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Dil Dhadakne Do! I have sooo many though, can't think of all of them, haha. What are yours!!!

  15. I loved reading this :) we would definitely get along very well for film nights! Much to Michele's despair, I am a huge fan of teen movies and if singing is involved, then all the better! Wagamamas is pretty good, my problem since moving back to the UK from Italy is that the food is just generally so substandard everywhere haha! If only my palate hadn't adjusted.. xxx

  16. I totally agree with you about your stance on Valentine's Day - it can be a great little push to celebrate with that special someone, but it is also not a biggie if you don't have a date. I don't like it when people blow V-day out of proportion in either direction - feeling the pressure to do something huge or hating the day with a passion - it's just unnecessary.

    Great to learn a bit more about you as well through this post. I am a huge fan of smoothies too.

  17. Raashi, I love this list! My favourite color is red at the moment but it changes all the time, and I love that you found a perfume that you feel fits you. Opium is a great scent. I don't think it fits me personally but I love that one!
    Cute list :)

Hehe yes, smoothies and Italian, some of the best! I feel very lucky to have travelled as much as I have already - I might do a post on it eventually! :) Thank you again, Kay, hope you're doing well!!!

  24. I am always struck by how much we have in common Raashi! I enjoy the same sort of youtubers you do (though I hate it admit it for some reason!). I was (and still am!) a huge fan of Enid Blyton. I grew up with those books and longed to go up the Farraway tree or go on a picnic with the famous five/secret seven!

    Lovely to get to know even more about you Raashi!

    1. I love that! Haha, I always get so scared getting into youtubers because youtube for me is a big, black hole hah, once I'm on there it's so easy for me to lose track of time and the amount of videos I've watched *monkey covering eyes emoji*.

      Oh my gosh, I can't even explain to you how nostalgic it made me to read what you wrote about going up the Faraway Tree for a picnic, just like Jo, Bessie and Fanny! :) Hehe, Enid Blyton books were amazing for the imagination <3

      Thank you for commenting, Emily! :)
