blog as good as hers in the future.
She created her own tag: 'The British Tag' which I really enjoyed watching and wanted to do myself.
So a massive thank you to Sammi for creating such a fun tag. Whether you're British or not, feel free to get involved...
1. How many cups of tea do you have a day? + How many sugars?
It depends on two things, 1) the season 2) whether I am studying/ working or not. I'm one of those people who doesn't like drinking hot drinks in hot seasons. In autumn/ winter, I will happily have a cuppa, but in the summer, I am a lot less inclined to. In the colder climate, I tend to have 2 or 3 cups of tea as it just helps me get through the day. Tea makes everything better. I don't have any sugar in my tea, but I do have it in everything else... For example (I shouldn't tell you this) when I eat my cereal I always put sugar in it, don't stir it, so I am left with the sugar and milk at the end. For that reason, I don't mind missing out on a bit of sugar in my tea, haha. Shhhhh!
2. Favourite part of your roast
Every single aspect of a roast dinner screams "PERFECT" to me. It's so difficult to narrow it down to my 'favourite part'. I think I'd have to go for the roast potatoes. With gravy, of course. Mhmmm. I could live off potatoes: roast potatoes; jacket potatoes; boiled potatoes; chips; fries; wedges- KEEP 'EM COMING!
3. Favourite dunking biscuit
There are 2 dunking biscuits I just can't resist. 1) Custard creams 2) Ginger nut biscuits. Now, let me just say, i know 'ginger nut' sounds awful and extremely unappetising, but I have literally fallen in love with them recently. When I have one, I just can't stop.
Brb, gonna grab a biscuit.
4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?
Ok, I'll admit that I had no idea what quintessentially meant, and had to search it.
quintessentially - representing the most perfect or typical example of a quality or class. Got it.
Hmmm, this is difficult. I quite like going for long walks in the autumn/ winter, in the countryside with my family. I also love visiting quaint, little English villages like Burford, Stowe or Moreton in Marsh with tiny little markets and cafés.
5. Favourite word?
I don't have one favourite word, but I tend to use 'basically' or 'literally' a lot. Ok, when I say a lot, I mean all the time. It's become a part of my idiolect and I naturally use it in most conversations. I wouldn't say it's my favourite word, though.
6. Cockney rhyme slang?
I don't know any. In fact I have never even heard of 'Cockney rhyme slang' in my whole entire life. Ooooppsss.
7. Favourite sweet/ chocolate
Bear with me whilst i produce a list of my favourite chocolate...
The list goes on... Right, let me try and keep my 'sweets' list short. I absolutely love Parma Violets! Surprisingly, none of my friends and family like them, which is good for me because as I get to keep them all to myself..
8. What would your pub be called?
Ooooooh, this is hard... I think I'd simply call it 'The Den'. I just feel as if that sounds warm and cosy which is the atmosphere I'd want my pub to have.
9. No.1 British person
Mr Bean's pretty cool, not going to lie.
10. Favourite shop / restaurant
Any beauty store would be my favourite shop. Boots, Superdrug, Lush, The Body Shop etc.
My favourite restaurant would have to be Nando's. Classy. My friend introduced it to me when we went to Bath. I ordered the 'Portobello Mushroom'- you should've seen the disgusted look on her face, she said "YOU CAN'T HAVE MUSHROOM, IN NANDO'S! BUY SOME CHICKEN, NOW!" Felt that story was appropriate here.
11. What British song pops into your head?
I literally can't think of any, they're all American!
I used to eat marmite religiously. Day and night. On toast, In my sandwiches' and even out of the jar. I haven't had it in ages though. I'm sure i would still love it though! Quick recommendation:- Toast with dairylea and marmite is

& that's the end of that tag! I loved it... I tag all of you to do it, go go go! See you in my next post girls!
