Vogue's 73 Questions Tag
I got nominated by the lovely Julia (go and check out her post) to do the vogue tag, which is when you answer 73 questions about yourself, which makes this blog post a good little way for you guys to learn some new things about me. I thought this looked really fun and I love reading interview type posts so I have decided to have a go!

What are your nicknames?
I’ve picked up a lot of nicknames over the years; I was called munchkin at school and I HATED IT. But now I get called any of the following: EmCon, Emris, Em or Emsy. I will respond to most things, you could say ‘YO’ and I’ll automatically think you are talking to me.
What makes you laugh a lot?
Being with friends, there is so much laughter every second when I am hanging out with them. Also, a comedy movie which makes your stomach hurt!
Heels or flats?
The girl diva in me says heels but my head says flats because I look hideous walking in them unless I have some alcohol and I think I look ok, where in reality I probably still fail at it. So maybe I should stick with flats. But WEDGES are the best of both worlds, I need the height but it's like wearing flats, they're so comfy!

Cliff Jumping, Cliff rock climbing- so yeah things that involve cliffs…

Getting a good degree and starting my blog.
What did you want to do with your life at age 5?
I was a ballet dancer and wannabe pop star. Like seriously I could’ve been huge, my cuddly toy following was larger than my Instagram following.
Dogs or Cats?
I want a dog at the moment, but I have had a cat, so at this moment I am gonna have to say dog.
