Confessions, Favorites and Peeves

20 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Me Nuz Say It with BooksThe "20 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Me" tag has been going around the blogosphere for some time and I was even tagged to do it

Since all the cool kids are doing it, I couldn't resist! ;) So here we go...

How tall are you?

I'm around 5 '3 and among my friends that's pretty tall so I mostly stick to flats. But there are days when I just need a pair of sky high heels! ;)

Do you have a hidden talent and if so, what?

I'm naturally thin and will not gain an ounce no matter how much I binge eat. So I guess my super power is an insatiable appetite? 

What is your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

Clutter is my #1 peeve-I dislike blogs that have a bazillion widgets and I can't stand illegible text on dark backgrounds!

What is your biggest non-blog-related pet peeve?

I have a LOT of peeves so this might take a while. Haha! Ignorance however, tops my list along with discrimination of any sort.

What’s your favorite song?

This is ever changing but right now my most listened tunes are John Legend's All of Me (I swear, the man has a voice of an angel!), PHOX's Noble Heart, Thousand Foot Krutch's Courtesy Call, Frida Amundsen's Closer, The Neighborhood's Let It Go and pretty much everything by Fall Out Boy!

What’s your favorite Etsy shop?

Not an Etsy goer but I do like cutesy fandom related jewellery!

Nuz Say It with Books - John Legend Shoes Alfred EnochWhat’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?

Besides, reading? Right now I'm hooked on How To Get Away With A Murder (how cute is Alfred Enoch?!), Reign and The Mindy Project. I also love reading blogs, not just book blogs but everything that's out there. I also like feasting my eyes on Pinterest and Tumblr.

What’s your favorite junk food?

Top indulgences are pizza, gummy bears, cheesecake, chocolate(duh), waffle ice cream sandwiches (it's totally a thing) and food with bold, spicy flavors and lots of cheese!

Do you have a pet or pets?


What are your number one favorite non-fiction and fiction books?

Okay, this is a tad embarrassing. I've read very few non fiction books and none of those came close being a favorite. I'm hoping to pick up Sophia Amoruso's #GIRLBOSS soon though!

Pick ONE fiction favorite? Now you are just being sadistic!

What’s your favorite beauty product?

Eyeliner, for sure. Perfectly executed cat eyes make my day! 

When were you last embarrassed and what happened?

A couple of days back, I knocked a stranger's ice cream over-that was a tad mortifying! Thank god, the lady was pretty nice about it.

If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I'd say ginger beer or black coffee.

What’s your favorite movie?

2005's Pride and Prejudice and X-Men are all time favorite. Recent faves are The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, TFiOS, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and 500 Days of Summer.

What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist prep etc?

Thankfully, we did not have any Mean Girl-esque cliques but I have to admit that bit of a nerd and a geek.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

How about everywhere? I've got a serious case of wanderlust but Netherlands is on the top of my list !

PC or Mac?

PC girl, all the way. :)

Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boyfriend/girlfriend?

Passssss ;)

Favorite celeb?

After the #HeForShe campaign, I'd say Emma Watson. For being hilarious, inspiring and just plain wonderful, I'll go with Mindy Kaling.

Which blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?

I want to be friends with each of you, blogger or not. So if I haven't said hi yet, please do reach out! :)

Over to you: 

Tell me what do we have in common? :)

Did you take part in the tag? Leave your links, I'd love to check your responses!


  1. Awww this is such a cute post! I haven't done this tag yet, can I do it on my own blog? haha :D

    I AM JEALOUS. I AM 5'1 FLAT. And I've been in that height since 2 years ago. I WANT TO BE TALLER DEYMIT. And if I eat to much, I instantly gain 10 pounds. That's why I have to be careful of what I eat. :(

    1. Haha, thanks! I know, I'm incredibly lucky that way! Hope to see your own post soon, Jules. :)

  2. Lol at knocking the stranger's Ice Cream down.Don't worry we've all done something like that. I've been on the bus and I can't reach the things that you hold when you're standing and when the bus driver took a turn I almost fell on top of a person and stepped on someone's shoes in the process. I was like and this is why I stand at the back of the bus, because there's a pole that I can hold onto lol. To echo what Jules says, I'm also jealous of your height lol. I wish I was a little bit taller too. Ohhh the Mindy Project, I've heard so much about it, but Danny comes across as such a jerk. I don't know if that's changed though...

  3. It's also hard for me to gain weight. No matter how big or little I eat my weight remains the same (much to my dismay because I do want to gain a few pounds). I can't pit an eyeliner so I don't put anything near my eyes. This is getting interesting, from all the people who took this meme, most of 'em are PC & here I thought Mac was so popular.

  4. Finally! I was wondering when you'll actually do this.
    Wow Nuz, we're a lot alike!That's so amazing to know:)
    Why Netherlands? I've always wanted to visit the good old US, because come on, it means bookstores, signings and a lot of other people who have the same interests as me!
    You knocked a woman's ice cream! When did this happen?
    Man, that would have been funny to watch:)

  5. Oh gosh. I need to go sleep because I read "Netherlands" as "Neverland" and I thought: "Yes, yes that is true. Neverland is the top of my list and I'm going there asap."
    Sooooo...yes. If I ever disappear: NEVERLAND.
    This is a fabulous tag and it's awesome to know more about you! Although, your ability to eat everything makes me jealous. ;-) And you're not that much taller than me!! I'm 5'1 and totally the shortest person in every crowd. It sucks in cinemas when everyone is like giraffe height. Hehe.

  6. Woot woot, I'm 5'3" as well! It's amazing how common that height it! I completely agree that Emma Watson is now one of my favourite celebrities ever. I have so much respect for her and her #HeForShe campaign. :D

  7. I feel like anyone who can pick just one book as a favorite hasn't read enough. But that's just my opinion! :-)
    I also picked you to do the Gif tag, and you can see my post HERE.

  8. This tag is so awesome! Being 5'3 is the average height for girls in the U.S. or it might be 5'4.
    I probably have the same hidden talent although I haven't binged eaten in a while - since High school.
    I hardly read nonfiction either. My favorite is this running book I read a while back that I fell in love with.
    i recently watched and read Pride and Prejudice and I love the story!

  9. I like All of Me too, and I agree How To Get Away With A Murder is pretty addictive :P

    Cheesecake <3 I totally don't consider it as junk food though, more like...dinner, lol.


Words are powerful - Please use yours wisely.
