This or That Challenge

Thank you to the lovely Steph who has nominated me for the ‘This or That Challenge’. I couldn’t wait to share this post with you to tell you all a little bit more about myself and of course, who doesn’t love a challenge!


Question 1: Shower in the morning or evening?

Both! I am one of those people who likes to be clean going to bed and a morning shower always wakes me up.

Question 2: City centre or close to nature?

I love visiting the City but my heart will always be close to Nature, what more could you want that a forest walk and good country pub!

Question 3: Bright colours or neutrals?

I’m a BIG neutral lover, don’t get me wrong a love a splash of bright colour now and again, but I do stick to greys/black/nudes quite a lot.

Question 4: Spring or autumn?

This is a difficult one… I am an Autumn born baby so I’ve gotta stick with Autumn mainly because it’s my birthday, I love the seasonal changes golden leaves, fireworks and of course pumpkin carving!

Question 5: Mint or cinnamon?

This is an easy question, I hate cinnamon! So it’s Mint all the way for me.

Question 6: Planned or spontaneous?

I love a good plan, mainly because I am super organised! However, who doesn’t love a spontaneous adventure?

Question 7: A movie at home or at the cinema?

A movie at home girl, I have a small attention span the BF loves the cinema so I do get dragged occasionally but I would rather watch a film at home.

Question 8: Espresso or latte?

Neither! I’m one those who don’t like hot drinks… Apart from Hot Chocolate.

Question 9: Hugs or kisses?

I love a good hug! The feel of warmth and security but a cheeky kiss will always go down well to.

Question 10: Spicy or mild food?

I am a spicy food lover.. I love a spicy curry!

Question 11: Leather or lace?

Lace. Lace dress, tops and skirts are a favourite.

Question 12: Overdressed or underdressed?

I enjoy dressing up – but I have to say I wouldn’t do underdressed or too overdressed… so somewhere in the middle for me 🙂

Question 13: Adventure or comfort?

I’m a bit adventure lover! Who doesn’t enjoy a bit of comfort as well though?

Question 14: TV series or movie?

A Movie type of girl.

Question 15: Rock or County music?

Both. I enjoy a mix of music I like variety.

Question 16: Red or white wine?

Neither. I’m a rose type (not a proper wine drinking)

Question 17: Working alone or in a team?

Depending on the type of work I am doing. I enjoy working together as part of a team to contribute to team success but also I like the satisfaction of individual success as well.

Question 18: Swimming or sunbathing?

Born and bred swimmer – I swear I could swim before I could walk! But love a good sunbathe on holiday.

Question 19: Fast-food or sit-down restaurant?

Big foodie so both are good for me.

Question 20: Matched or mismatched socks?

Organised freak so they have to be matched.

Question 21: Dancing or singing?

I was definitely born with two left feet haha.. so I am not a dancer! But I do enjoy a good sing along – who doesn’t love karaoke?

Question 22: Phone or the internet?

Both… I enjoy catching up on my phone but come on we all love browsing the Internet too!

I hope you’ve learnt a little more about me through the THIS and THAT Challenge and yeah… I like to be organised! Look out for the next THIS OR THAT Challenge! Be sure to check out Steph’s!

    This was super interesting to read, and as I was reading I was kind of trying to figure out my own answers along the way as well.

    Love reading these posts, it’s so cool to get to know more about the bloggers I come across every day on Twitter and online. Totally with you when it comes to preferring movies at home – my attention span is awful!

    I love these kinda post ? really allows you to get to know the blogger

  5. June 10, 2018 / 1:23 pm

    This is great, very interesting. Considering the questions, I don’t know what would my answer be in most of the questions! For example you take showers both in the morning and at night, and I can’t decide what to do really. Don’t want to go to sleep dirty, but starting a day with a shower is so great! Same with phone or the internet… I just can’t decide. Great post!

    These are such fun posts to read! I also like showering in the morning and evening. I love movies at home and I’d choose swimming anyday too! Great answers Emma! ? xx

    I did this on my blog last month, they’re such fun posts to read! We have quite a bit in common 🙂 although I prefer a TV series to movies! xxx

  8. June 12, 2018 / 7:53 pm

    I love these type of posts! I’d like to think I know you really well but there’s a few things here’s that I didn’t about you e.g. the fact that you love spicy food

    Hahaha, this was such a fun post, I love it! I absolutely hate wine ?? I would rather be overdressed than underdressed because at least I’ll stand out in a good way, aye!

    Love reading these posts they always help to get to know the blogger a bit more! I’m like you love the city but nothing beats a good nature walk, I only like the city mainly for shopping haha! I like swimming on holiday when I get too warm but you also can’t beat sunbathing with a good book!

    I love reading all about the bloggers I follow! Thanks for sharing. Also I completely agree on the mint over cinnamon debate. Cinnamon is evil. Mint all the way!
