30 Things About Me

January 20, 2019smilingwithsarah

Hey love,

As my very first lifestyle blog post, I thought I would start off by introducing myself and sharing some of the quirky, maybe unknown things about me.  In the past, whenever someone would ask me silly little questions, I always had such difficulty answering them and I would without a doubt turn to a friend and ask them if they could help me come up with an answer.  Well, I’ve found that if I don’t know myself, how am I ever going to be able to share myself with other people.  So I’ve finally sat down and gathered a bunch of random information about myself and I can’t wait to share it with you guys!  I hope you enjoy!

1. What’s your name & what does it mean?

My name is Sarah (I hope you already knew that LOL) and it means “princess”, which is quite fitting because I always did and still do dream of living in a fairytale

2. What are some of your fears?

Ugggggh superficial fears: definitely spiders, dolls, and the dark.  Real life fears: losing a loved one

3. Favourite musician?

I have sooo many faves but I absolutely LOVE Ed Sheeran!  I’ve seen him live three times and I don’t plan on stopping

4. Favourite colour?


5. Favourite Disney princess?

Definitely Belle!  Fun story, whenever I was sick when I was younger, I would watch Beauty & the Beast and it always seemed to make me feel better

6. Go-to meal?

Chicken strips and fries!!  Ask any one of my friends/family and they’ll tell you that I don’t even have to look at the menu when we go out for dinner

7. Dog or cat person?

I’m definitely a dog person, even though I was so scared when I was younger

8. Early-bird or night-owl?

Definitely an early bird.  No matter how hard I try to sleep in, it just doesn’t work.  I like to get up early and start my day so I can make the most of it

9. Do you sing in the shower?

Much to my family’s dismay, I do.  It’s like I’m putting on my own concert – the bathroom acoustics are amazing!

10. Do you take any medications or vitamins daily?

I take vitamins every single morning.  I’m B-12 deficient so I take those to give myself an extra little boost of energy throughout the day

11. Do you save cards?

Absolutely!!  Ever since I was 16, I believe, I started saving all my birthday cards.  But I do save graduation/anniversary/valentines/etc cards because I figure that someone put effort into writing it, so it deserves a spot in my memory box

12. Do you have any tattoos?

I have two – both on my wrists.  My right wrist is an arrow and my left wrist is my favourite bible passage

13. Who was your first celebrity crush?

Has to be a tie between Nick Jonas and Zac Efron.  I went crazy over them as a kid and I may or may not still do the same

14. What do you look for in a partner?

Kindness, loyalty, humour, ambition, good values/morals

15. Have you broken any bones?

I broke my toe during a dance audition and that was NOT fun considering it was right at the beginning and I had to go the rest of the day with a broken toe

16. What’s the scariest movie you’ve ever watched?

I very strongly dislike scary movies because I’m a chicken but every October my boyfriend loves to watch horror movies, so I watch them (usually with a pillow in front of my face) and I can honestly say that some haven’t been that bad, but the scariest for me had to have been The Conjuring

17. Coffee or tea?

Neither.  I’m not really a warm drink lover, but I will indulge in Starbucks holiday lattes (mmm pumpkin spice & chestnut praline)

18. What’s something you wish you were gifted at?

Honestly anything artsy or creative.  I wish I could sing, draw, paint, etc.

19. Favourite movie?


20. What do you do right when you wake up?

I usually check what time it is and then when I’m actually awake, if I have time I go through my social medias and reply to any messages I got while I was asleep

21. What kind of books do you like to read?

Romance. Romance. Romance.  I’ve tried reading non-fiction and mysteries but I honestly love settling down with a good romantic novel

22. What’s the last movie you saw at the theatre?

Bohemian Rhapsody.  It was sooo good and I haven’t stopped listening to Queen

23. What was the name of your first pet?

I had a goldfish and her name was Hilary (yes, I may have been obsessed with Hilary Duff.  I may still be obsessed with her)

24. How often do you skip breakfast?

I never skip breakfast!! If I don’t eat within the first half hour of waking up, I get nauseous 

25. Most ridiculous reason you’ve had to go to the hospital?

I sprained my ankle because I sat with my legs tucked under my bum when I was doing my makeup.  Even the nurse laughed

26. If you could give your younger self any advice, what would it be?

Not to stress so much!!  I used to stress about every little thing and it honestly affected me in a really negative way.  I’m happy that I’ve learned to just take one thing at a time

27. Favourite snack?

Anything chocolate

28. Favourite smells?

Autumn scents!!  Going into Bath & Body Works during the Fall is heaven

29. Extrovert or introvert?

I tend to say I’m an introvert because I’ve always been very quiet and shy.  But when I’m with people I’m comfortable with, I can get pretty loud and silly

30. Go-to Netflix shows?

Friends and How I Met Your Mother.  I’ve watched the entirety of Friends like six times and I’m on my third of How I Met Your Mother


I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know me a little bit, I had fun sharing some of me with you!  I would love to learn more about you guys
