The 'get to know me a little' Tag

The lovely Danielle over at underlandtowonderland.blogspot.co.uk tagged me to partake in this post! I absolutely adore these kind of tags as you get to become acquainted with the person behind the blog and is more personal rather than reading post after post of reviews of products and whatnot. Additionally, I created a quick and quirky illustration of myself (as displayed below) seeing as this is a post about the one and only... Me! Hope you enjoy my lovelies :)

1. Do you have a middle name?
I actually have a handful of middle names! My full name is technically Claire Ellen Mary Fearon, however that's a tad wordy for my liking, so we'll keep it at Claire! 

2. What was your favourite subject in school?
For as long as I can remember, I've always relished in English Literature as I adored nothing more than getting stuck into a good book and dabbling in some poetry. I actually also did English Literature for A-Level and balled my eyes out when the class was reading Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights!

3. What's your favourite drink?
Coffee - any kind, flavour, brand. I worship the stuff, as it's what gets me up in the morning and it's lovely and comforting to take at night - a hot cup of coffee when I'm snuggled up in my duvet, reading a copious amount of blogs (aha, how hipster do I sound right now!?). 

4.What's your favourite song at the moment?
Songs and music in general has never been my forte, however, right now I'm lovin' Maximo Parks new album, especially Brain Cells, I'm really recommend you have a listen! 

5.What would you name your children?
I'm quite prone to floral names like Violet or Rose, or I have a younger cousin named Juliet and I think it sounds so delicate and enticing, so that either. As for a boy, I'm quite taken by the name Noah, as I think phonically it sounds amazing! 

6. Do you participate in any sports?
I used to participate in every sport imaginable when I was younger - I joined everything, from hockey to football, tennis to gymnastics, I was quite the little athlete! Until ya'know, I realised it was all bullshit haha.

7. What's your favourite book?
I'm one of these people who as soon as I find out a novel is about to be made into a movie, I'll swallow that book up in a day. Therefore, when I heard The Perks of Being a Wallflower was coming to theatres, I knew I simply must read it. And though short, it's one of the best books I've ever read as it really struck a chord with me.

8. What's your favourite colour?
Ohhh, definitely purple! It's an amalgamation of pink and blue so what's not to love!?

9. What's your favourite animal?
I have an inner debate with myself every once in a while about what animal I adore the most. But for the moment, I can't get enough of foxes! Even have myself a wee (actually NOT wee) tattoo to prove it!

10. What's your favourite perfume?
Have you ever smelt Dior Addict? It's exactly like walking into a sweet shop. It's slightly pricey though so I only get it once a year, at Christmas, so you'd actually be safer just walking into some sweet stores and rubbing some Werther's Original all over yourself to save some money :) 

11. What's your favourite time of the year?
I have to comb my brain for this justification - but I really do love winter. And yes, you might be thinking "ugh, the cold and the catastrophic weather, what's to like!?" But I love the layering of comfy clothes, the nights drinking nothing but hot chocolate to warm yourself up and the forever hopeful prospect of snow!

12. Have you been out of the country?
I have indeed, I've been to France, Spain, Prague, New York and California. California being my favourite as myself and my mum were situated in Hollywood and loved stalking celebrities and being absolute children at Universal Studios.

13. Do you speak any other languages?
I've studied many languages, however unfortunately nothing has stuck. I am pretty competent in the most useless language ever though - Irish, learning it was compulsory you see.

14. Do you have any siblings?
I'm technically an only child, and always longed for some company. And lo and behold, about 12 years ago, my father remarried and I was given two of the most wonderful sisters anyone could ever ask for!

15. What's your favourite shop?
I tend to be a tad bipolar with shops, and have a somewhat love/hate relationship with the likes of Topshop and Urban Outfitters. Like, sometimes they can bring in some stunning stock that I lust after for ages until I get my grubby hands on it, and yet then again, there are times where I think what's trending is absolutely appalling, I still don't quite understand how jelly sandals made a come-back!

16. What's your favourite food?
Chicken Katsu Curry from either Wagamama or Yo! Sushi. The cravings actually got so bad that I had to learn how to make it myself!

17. What's your favourite movie?
Right now, The Wolf of Wall Street. The superior acting quality of Leonardo Di Caprio coupled with the hilarious antics of Jonah Hill, what more could you want?

18. What are some of your favourite TV shows?
To list but a few: Breaking Bad, Frasier, Girls, Game of Thrones and of course Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Can't go wrong with some 90's nostalgia, eh?

19. What phone do you have?
I have an iPhone 4. In a Pokemon phonecase. Yes. It is awesome. 

 20. How tall are you?
I am incredibly small! Probably bordering on 5"1 perhaps? People like to pick me up and fling me around quite often. 

21. Any pets?
I have an immensely hyperactive cocker spaniel named Ben. He is the weirdest, most loveable dog you could ever meet. His pastimes include: being scared of cats, eating potatoes (how Irish...) and going to the seaside! Such a charming wee fellow! 

22. Any kids?
Fuck no. I find it difficult enough taking care of myself.

23. If you weren't you, would you be your friend?
I'm quite an approachable and bubbly individual, so I would like to think that I'd make a good friend! However, in the past when I was going through the turbulent teenage phase, I was quite the bitch I'm afraid.

24. What's the first thing you notice about someone?
Definitely their hair! I'm instantly allured to someone who has hair different from the norm!

25. What is your eye colour?
Brown... Like poo.

 26. Scary movies or happy endings?
There hasn't been a decent scare-inducing film out in ageeeesssss, which makes me a very sad panda indeed! I despise rom-coms, but I do enjoy the odd happy ending :) 

27. Favourite smells?
I love the scent of vanilla or anything coconuty! I could just roll around in vanilla extract all day! (Does that make me weird?).

28. Do you have any special talents?
I'm glad you asked! I'm quite the voice impressionist! I can do Stitch from Lilo and Stitch, I can do Jigglypuff and Togepi from Pokemon, I can do Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time, to name a few...

29. Where were you born?
I wish I could say something original like "in a field" but alas, I was born in a boring hospital in boring Northern Ireland!

30. What are your hobbies?
I'm a designer at heart (if you haven't been able to tell from my posts thus far!). I also like going on adventures, wherever the wind may take me! I also enjoy playing video games, anything from Skyrim to Pokemon! 

  1. I love posts like this! It's nice getting to know a blogger more :)

    1. Eeeekk, aww thank you my lovely! And crap, I am SO sorry, I knew I missed someone out - I should have tagged you too in my twitter post!

  6. Hi Claire, I found your blog through twitter and I love it! This post is great, I really like getting to know other bloggers and these tags really help! I wear Dior addict too, I first fell in the love with the box, then the bottle, then the way it sprayed (I'm easily impressed!) then of course the smell!!

    Looking forward to reading more from you!

    1. Thank you so much sweetie! I'm so glad people are liking my posts :) And ahhh it's such a beautiful scent isn't it!? Pity it's so pricey :')

      And btw, I am lovin' your blog name, ahhh so clever! I was going to name mine Clairevoyance but decided that daintysghosts was much cuter! :)

      Claire xo

  7. Such a selection of questions! and so many... I'm in the process of making my post now!

    Your fox tattoo is incredible beautiful. Will you be finishing the frame any time soon?

    Such a great idea at the beginning of a blog, just to get you started with everyone, and also for some post inspiration too.

    ~ K

    1. Gurrrrrl, tell me about it! Didn't realise that there was 30 when I started mine! Ahhh I am so excited to read yours, will be an interesting read :)

      And thank you! His name is Felix the fox btw :) I'll be getting it finished over summer hopefully when I pool the money together, he'll be finally surrounded by a lovely gold, vintage frame, bless him!

      And thank you! I think it's more personal that way and hopefully draws the readers in ;)

      Claire xo

  8. Wonderful tattoo! :3
    I wish I could have gone to California. It seems so amazing! D: We appear to have lots in common from this post. Straaaaaange! =P

    1. Eeeek, thank you beautiful! He's my wee Felix the fox :)
      Ohhh I would actually really recommend going to California before going to New York! Everyone seemed so stressed in NYC :')

      And really? Ahh that makes me smile so much! Love knowing that there are other little weirdos like myself out there ;)

      Claire xo

  10. Your tattoo is rad. <3 it. I have a tattoo on my right shoulder of a bird in a birdcage with birds flying away. my first but not my last. I'm planning on doing some geeky tattoos over the year. ^_^
    I'm a Yo Sushi and Wagmama virgin. :(
    And Sabrina... Loved her when I was younger. Still do, I always find myself watching repeats at some point. My favourite episode is the one where she steps in to the mirror and everything is backwards. :D
    Whats your fav episode?
    Breaking Bad is awesome too. Me and my fiance binge watched it all the way to the end and I love Jesse! <3
    I feel like if I do one of these it would be really boring. haha


    1. Tehe aww thank you m'dear! And wowww your bird tattoo sounds gorge! I'd love a wee birdie tattoo at some point :) And ahhhh what all geeky tattoos do you have in mind m'dear? I've always wanted a Pokemon one, preferably Eevee ^_^

      And OMG that episode is hilarious! Her alter ego in the mirror is such a bitch! Hmmm... I'm actually not sure which one's my face, I loved the earlier ones with Libby though, ahhh she was such a twat haha

      And Jesse <3 Breaking Bad was just the best thing ever made, so sad it's over! :'(

      And nooooo you would not be boring at all! I would love to see one pop up on your blog :) But thank you so much for all the lovely kind words <3

      Claire xo

  11. You are adorable! Love your illustration! Now I want to have a Sabrina marathon!

    1. Awww thank you my lovely! I love all of your artwork, so quirky and beautiful :) AND YUSSS, you definitely must! I loved Salam <3

      Claire xo

  12. For my geeky tattoos I've always wanted a tribal tattoo like the one the character Faith in Buffy the vampire slayer has on her arm and the 4 elements tattoo that leeloo has on her wrist in the fifth element. Thats my childhood right there. <3

    I loved Libby in Sabrina. She kinda just disappeared tho!

    I may do a "get to know me post" soon with photos of my tattoo.. ;)

    Have a lovely evening!


  13. Your tattoo is so nice, the detail is amazing! I have a bird in a similar looking frame down my side on my ribs. Love finding bloggers with tattoos :)
