"All about me" Tag

I have never before written a 'Tag' post but was invited by the lovely Penny from Lillies and Love to join in and thought what a great way to get to know me better.

FIRST OFF, TELL US YOUR NAME AND WHAT YOU
DO...

I'm Ria, I work as a project manager in the Fairs and Events industry, but my head is more often found drifting off into the world of vintage clothes and fashion. Many people tell me I should be a stylist or work in fashion... that's the dream. I am also a freelance makeup artist. 






MY FAVOURITE THING TO DO
IS...
Does it sounds materialist to say shop..... haha. Other than shopping, I love Yoga and to dance. I belong to a dance club that takes me far and wide for social dances and events. I American East coast swing, Rock n Roll and Lindy hop. I'm at my happiest when out with my friends and loved ones, dancing with a pint glass of rum or beer in hand. When not out dancing I love to potter around my home with my 2 cats Bella and Cherry, 2 rabbits; Mr Augustas Tibbs and Bluebell and tendering to my failing vegetable patch.






MY FAVOURITE THING TO EAT IS...
Chips and Gravy! Simples......





WHEN I GET CROSS I...

Become very calm, if I am freakishly calm, back away quickly! You know you have tipped me over the edge!

"And though she be but little, she is fierce"
 
SOMETIMES I WORRY BECAUSE...

I worry about anything and everything, I wish I could stop being such a worrier. 

MY FAVOURITE BOOK IS...

I have a few. I loved reading The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom, A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, both quite profound books along with Before I Go To Sleep by  S J Watson.

MY FAVOURITE TOY IS...

My ipad, It hardly leaves my side

I DISLIKE...

People with no manners. I am an old fashioned girl when it comes to manners, they cost nothing! Unkind people, people that eat like they are a cow chewing on a cud, Fake smiles; people that wish to talk to you just to be nosey but you know as soon as you turn your back the talons come out. Sadly I have met a few of these of late! 

WHEN I GROW UP I WANT TO BE...

Happy and for my friends and family to be healthy, surrounded by the ones I love. I would also like to become totally self employed.

Gorgeous Nails......

The lovely Monica of Gorgeous invited me to come and have a manicure in her home based salon.

Monica specialises in keeping natural nails happy and healthy. My poor old nails have been a bit neglected lately so it was a perfect time for a pamper.

Not only was Monica fab at identifying my nails needs but was instantly friendly, chatty and like I was coming to see a friend.


I really loved the shape that my nails were filed and over all they looked neater and happy. I look forward to the next time I visit Gorgeous

Birthday Wansies

I'm soon due to be another year older, but maybe not any wiser! Now a lady never divulges her age but I will be another 30 something eeek!

Now I'm no stranger to always having a wantsie list, as those who follow my facebook page will know with my weekly 'Wantsey Wednesday's' posts. Surely this makes me the easiest to buy for!
 
So here's whats on my birthday wish
 
 

 
You can buy this with / without the veil. I would like it without for now.


 
Hell Bunny Lucy Leopard collar cardigan - Various stores
