My friend Holly recently did the TMI tag, and I decided I'd take the plunge and do it to, afterall, it's time you got to know me better, so let's get started!
What are you wearing?
A floor length grey marl River Island dress with a side split, grungy cut out River Island boots, a black M&S cardigan and a black with silver stud River Island handbag.
Ever been in love?
Haha, yes. The most crazy long love I'd ever felt. Nothing came of it though, and that's probably for the best.
Ever had a terrible breakup?
No! I've never even been in a 'relationship' if you call dating someone when you're 11 and nothing happening a relationship, and just saying politely that it wasn't working out for you, then still no.
How tall are you?
5ft 4 and 1/2! I'm pretty small! I like it though, I feel pretty happy this way.
How much do you weigh?
I don't like weighing myself. Self explanatory really, but my thesis is that if you are happy when you look in the mirror, you probably don't need to be worrying what the scales are saying when you stand on them.
Any tattoos?
Nope, and I'd never really want one either. The only one I've considered wouldbe on my left little finger between the knuckle and centre.
Any piercings?
 Yes, my ears. Nothing else, I don't go for piercings, neither on girls or boys. I think it freaks me out having a piece of metal you have chosen to go through you.
OTP (one true pairing)?
 Tanya Burr & Jim Chapman? The guy I loved for five years and myself? I don't know....
Favourite show?
I adore all sorts of things, so I can't just choose one. I like 'Lewis', 'Midsomer Murders', 'Total Wipeout' so yeah a complete mix really!
Favourite bands?
I don't have a favourite band, I tend to listen to individual artists like Ellie Goulding, David Guetta, Flo Rida, Nicki Minaj. But if I have to pick I guess I'd say 'Imagine Dragons'.
Something you miss?
School last year with my group of friends in my previous college, although I adore the people in my new college, I still miss my friends who have gone to uni, never will stop missing those days.
Favourite song?
At the moment, 'Wild Ones' or 'Sugar' by Flo Rida. You did ask!
How old are you?
 I'm 19, and will be 20 next January. God I'm getting old.
Zodiac sign?
 Capricorn! I've always had to know what my crush's horoscope was, so I could see if they matched up or not. I was young, so give me my due, it was just a bit of fun. Now I don't care too much.
Quality in a partner?
 I like a humourous man, someone who can make me laugh, not a class clown, but someone whose humour can be borderline cheesy, an older guy is sort of a must for me, somoene younger is a no go zone, no matter what I feel for them. I don't want to be the older person in the relationship.
Favourite quote?
 "The quieter you become, the more you can hear"
Favourite actor?
Benedict Cumberbatch. Obviously, isn't he everyones? No? Oh.... he's gorgeous, beautiful, and handsome though? Still no? Ok.
Favourite colour?
Burgundy. Has been for nearly a year. Always have a strong bond to blues though.
Loud or soft music?
I listen to classical in the morning on the way to college, and on the way home, and heavier David Guetta/ Flo Rida music in between.
Where do you go when you're sad?
 The internet? I don't like winging online though, keep i to yourself! But most of the time I prefer my room!
 How long does it take you to shower?
 15 minutes...? With washing hair that is.
How long does it take you to get ready after waking up?
An hour to do makeup, hair, and clothes. I shower in the evening.
Ever been a physical fight?
Yes, twice. They were not pleasant experiences, but I gave as good as they did.
 Turn on?
 Scottish accent, dark hair, a bit of a quiff at the front of the hair. That's super cute. A great jawline.
Turn off?
An arrogant, self obsessed football maniac.
Why did you start your blog?
To express my fascination with fashion and beauty and discuss all lifestyle things.
The fear of drowning trapped in a boat. Maybe spiders a little too.
Last thing that made you cry?
 Having my heartbroken I think....?
Last time you said you loved someone?
 A long long time ago, unless to a family member.
 Meaning behind your blog name?
 I'm just fo fabulous. Joking! I love fashion, and I'm a girl, add it up and you get....?
Last book you read?
 A Sophie Kinsella book, can't remember which, probably 'I've Got Your Number'.
Book you're currently reading?
None, but I want to get all the Eragon series on my mum's kindle.
Last show you watched?
Total Wipeout, and World's Craziest Fools.
Last person you talked to?
 Joe who is sitting beside me as I type...?
The relationship between you and the last person you texted?
He's a college friend.
 Favourite food?
Chocolate anything. Sorry!
Places you want to visit?
Barbados again, Biarritz, the Galapagos islands.
 Last place you were?
Sitting on a spinning chair in college.
 Do you have a crush?
Oui, c'est maladroit.
Last time you kissed someone?
 On the cheek, my mum. On the lips? No-one ever.
Last time you were insulted?
I don't know, probably yesterday by my mum? Oh yeah, my mum said I was ugly because I called her fat for finishing off the honey roasted peanuts.
Favourite flavour of sweets?
Chocolate, or cola. I also love apple. Hate cherry though!
 What instruments do you play?
 I can play piano fairly well, a bit of Clarinet too.
 Favourite piece of jewellery?
 My grandma's ring, and pearl earrings she left me.
Last sport you played?
 I am not the greatest fan of sports, I'm not a couch potato, nor a gym bunny,  but I do like Zumba a lot though!
 Last song you sang?
Explosions by Ellie Goulding.
Favourite chat up line?
 I bet your last name is Jacobs - because you’re a real cracker!
 Have you ever used it?
Nope, I don't want to win the guys over.
Last time you hung out with anyone?
 Today, in an ICT room with a load of people?
Who should do this tag next?
Anyone who wants to!

 Hope this was fun for you to read, just a little extra information for you to find amusing/interesting!

Another early morning post everyone! This one is about music that I listen to in the mornings when I'm up and have just gotten into college, today I'm listening to 'Wild Ones' by Flo Rida and SIA. If you haven't heard this one, then please do, it isn't new, no, but it is brilliant. Generally Flo Rida's music makes me exceptionally happy and positive. Re-enforcing positivity? I don't need to today! This week I've been feeling exceptionally happy and positive, I guess all this 'considerate' weather is probably something to do with that, the nice weather always has me feeling happy and positive. I guess it works that way for everyone though! Nice weather is always lovely.
So, what have you been doing to enjoy this weather? For me, I've been revising for mock exams, so not real ones, but the grades do get noted, so it's worth working for!
Can't wait to get next weeks mocks over though, the entire timetable is collapsed and we only have to come in for our mocks, so it'll be nice as I potentially have two days not in college next week, after my mocks, so I'll probably film y'all a video! What would you like to see? Anything in particular? If you do have a preference, leave me a comment, I always read them!
I guess I'm also feeling fairly happy because I don't feel like I've got any major holes in my life at the moment, although I'm single, I don't feel like I used to (we all used to in my friendship group) whereby I felt like I needed a relationship to justify my existence, now I'm just rolling with the times, although if a good Scottish guy does show himself, maybe I'll be tempted to change my mind! Being of Scottish origin myself, I do find myself drawn to Scottish guys, haha!

Have a beautiful Thursday everyone,

Last night I spent my evening rather unexpectedly playing scrabble, listening to classical music and drinking hot chocolate (it's been months since I last made a hot chocolate at home!) It was lovely to relax, and having the fire lit was wonderful too, that's definitely one of the benefits of having an open fire. The candle in the photo is a Sainsburys own brand 'Glacier candle' they cost £4.00, and we got ours on offer for £2.64 I think, the colour matches our living room perfectly, and it smells very delicate and extremely relaxing. I plan on doing an entire blog post on candles soon, I know, I know, bizarre, but that's life, I love candles, and I might possibly make you love them too if you don't already, and I'll be talking about this particular candle.
Finished editing a new video this morning, so you'll have to wait for that one to go up next week, I've got mock exams the week after this Monday, and it's going to require a lot of revision!
Hope you're all having a lovely Saturday, I hope to go for a walk and lunch tomorrow afternoon, so if I can, I'll get my photographer to take some photos for an OOTD possibly. Still learning how to make the best use of my camera and it's settings!
Have a wonderful weekend,

Max Factor Giant Pen Stick (*)
Bourjois Volumizer Mascara (*)
Maybelline Dream Mousse Eyeshadow (*)

Have a wonderful Tuesday, and a lovely week,
