This or That tag

When the lovely Steph at Blossom and Bloom Sparkles  tagged me (a while ago now ooops) to do the This or That tag I thought I would have a go so here we are!

Red or white wine?
I am in tolerant to alcohol these days thanks to the M.E but I do like a nice glass of red!

City or countryside?
We live in Leeds which is a mega busy city but we are also really close to the countryside & I sometimes think I would quite like to live out in the sticks for the peace & quiet! I am not really a country bumpkin though so not sure how well I'd cope.. I get scared of the dark too so can imagine me freaking out a bit in the middle of nowhere!

Cats or dogs?
If I had a choice I'd have a dog but the fact I can't really walk much kind of makes that a bit difficult! My mum has a cat & he's lovely but I've never really been a big cat person (sorry to all my crazy cat lady friends).

Sweet or savoury?
Savoury every time. Chocolate & cake I can happily cope without (most of the time) but crisps are my downfall. And nice bread, cheese, crackers & dips is one one my favourite things ever!

Dresses or jeans?
Dresses. I love them. End of.

Heels or flats?
Heels look better but I mainly wear flats these days. However using a wheelchair means you can get away with wearing high ones so I quite like being in the heels & wheels brigade!!

Beyonce or Taylor Swift?
My daughter loves Taylor so as it makes me giggle seeing her sing I'll go with her.

Tea or coffee?
Tea. Nothing beats a nice cup of strong Yorkshire tea. I drink a bit too much sometimes but it makes everything better doesn't it? And it's so very British!

Divergent or The Hunger Games?
Can't say I've seen either...

Blog posts or YouTube?
I have recently become addicted to watching make up tutorials on YouTube. I can't believe I haven't been an avid viewer until now! My wishlist is rapidly growing...

Skincare or makeup?
Make up. I love it (see my previous blog post!!) I have a pretty basic skincare routine but it seems to work ok. Clean & Clear dual Action Moisturiser works really well so am sticking with that for now.

Morning or night?
I have always hated mornings. Even before I got ill. They are evil! Night time these days is when I should be asleep but I end up watching stuff in bed until silly o'clock which probably doesn't help with the evil mornings...

Books or magazines?
I do love a good book but haven't read one for ages. My concentration is so bad that I can't seem to keep focused. Although I haven't bought a magazine either for months. I used to get subscriptions to a few but cancelled as I never read them so they use to pile up until I would end up giving them away.

Facebook or Twitter?
I go through phases with both. I used to love Twitter but you do get some strange ones on there & some stuff happened a while ago that scared some of us off! I enter competitions & do chat to some lovely people but I am not as big a fan of it as I was. Facebook I like as you control who sees your stuff to some extent but people can be annoying on there too! I prefer Instagram to them both.

Summer or Winter?
Summer. I would move somewhere hot in a shot. The sun also helps my M.E symptoms slightly & who doesn't feel or look better with some colour!

One of the nicest places I've ever been is Krakow in Poland. I would love to go back one day. It's such a beautiful, cultural city.

I really like stuff by Jodi Picoult but it isn't the easiest stuff to read & it's always quite harrowing. I still haven't read all my (signed!) Keith Lemon book either!!!

Not sure I can pick a favourite but some of my top ones are Leon, Shawshank Redemption, Pretty Woman, Elf (massive contrast to the first 2!) & Save the Last Dance. Pretty varied.

Tv show?
Celebrity Juice. I mean come on, it's brilliant!

Dolce Vita by Christian Dior. All time favourite. And was the inspiration for my tattoo (which if you didn't know I had, well you do now)!

Skincare item?
Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream.

Bourjois velvet rouge edition.

I really like Mii mineral foundation but am looking for something new so would love suggestions.

Cheese & crackers (as above!!) But also partial to Chinese, Thai & Italian food.

Profiteroles. Yum.

Places to eat?
We have some fab local café places which are some of my favourites. I also love a place called Sukothai who do amazing Thai food.

Alcoholic drink?
As mentioned above I am intolerant to alcohol since I have had M.E but I really love Amaretto. On the rocks or with cranberry juice. Mmmm pass me the bottle...

Non alcoholic drink?
Fentimans rose lemonade. And they have the coolest bottles ever too.

For comedy Will Ferrell. I really like Leonardo DiCaprio (who doesn't), Channing Tatum (we all know why!), Matt Damon. Hmmm I appear to have focused on males. Oops.

One of my all time favourite albums is Christina Aguilera Back to Basics. I saw her live years ago & she was amazing. I love music though & like so many different types so it's hard to pick just one artist.

What does the future hold for you?
I would love to say good health but I have no idea if that will ever happen. Seeing my princess grow & continue to me smile like she does every day.

Thanks for reading & I will tag a few others on my social media! Have enjoyed doing this so thanks Steph for the tag :-)
