Girl Behind the Blog: Get to know Grace!


So Grace With Love Blog has been in existance for around three weeks now and I have to say I am absolutely loving the whole experience! Every day I look forward to researching and creating cool new content for you all to read! I love interacting with my readers and hearing your thoughts and feedback. I feel so blessed to have acquired so many lovely readers already and I hope you are enjoying reading my blog as much as I enjoy writing it! Today, I feel it is time for you all to get to know the girl behind the blog a little better so here's my 25 Question Challenge!





  Here we go…
1. Do you have a middle name?
 
Of course, Aisling which is Irish for "dream" or "vision", such a pretty name, love it!!

2. What was your favourite subject in school?
Hmm... I confess that I am a HUGE nerd so I really loved loads of subjects! English and Gaeilge were always my favourites though as I really enjoy expressing myself through languages and writing.

3. What is your Zodiac sign?
Scorpio.. Scorpions are said to be strong, intense, driven, ambititious, dedicated, passionate and loyal and I certainly think I possess some fierce Scorpion traits :)

4. Do you participate in any sports? 
I'm not involved in team sports at the minute but I make sure to stay active by walking, swimming,  fitness videos on Youtube, Zumba and yoga! Physical activity is an important part of my daily health and wellbeing routine.

5. Favourite Book?
 My interests are highly varied so I appreciate lots of genres. You can't beat Cecelia Aherne for the chic-lit and  If You Could See Me Now is one of my favourites. Tara Road by Maeve Binchy is another fantastic Irish creation. I love non-fiction books too as they are very educational and I think it is important to keep in touch with current affairs.


6. Favourite Colour?
 Red is such a powerful colour.. a red lip or dress stands out a mile and can truly light up a room!


7. Favourite Animal? 
I'm pretty biased as I am currently IN LOVE with my baby Bichon Frise Harry but I always found dolphins really cool too!

8. Favourite perfume? 
Flowerbomb by Victor & Rolf changed my life! This stuff is heaven in a bottle!


9. Favourite accessory?
A girl can never have enough shoes!

10. Do you speak any other Languages?
Languages were always my passion. I have been blessed to have a grá for Gaeilge since primary school and luckily I have carried the cúpla focail into my adult life through college and Gaeltacht experiences. I really enjoyed learning French in secondary school too but haven't had many opportunities to use it since..you never know it may come in handy one day!


11. Do you have any siblings?
 No, I am an only child!


12. What’s your favourite store? 
River Island for life!

13. Did you like school? 
Loved it!


14. Favourite YouTubers? 
Zoella, Shaaanxo and Chloe Boucher


15. Favourite Movie(s)? 
Michael Collins, Brooklyn, Gone Girl, Mr & Mrs Smith,  Mean Girls and any Rachel McAdams love-story type, also anything with Colin Farrell, Ryan Gosling or Channing Tatum!



16. PC or Mac? 
PC as I've yet to be introduced to the world of Mac!

17. What phone do you have? 
I-Phone 6 and it was without doubt one of my best and favourite purchases!


18. How tall are you? 
Average enough approx 5''4


19. What do you order at Starbucks? 
More like what don't I order at Starbucks? My college friends know that Starbucks is a serious obsession of mine! Caramel Macchiato, Chai Latté and the Toffee Nut Christmas Latté are some of my favourites!

20. What’s one thing most people probably don’t know about you?
I  had the pleasure of witnessing Cristiano Ronaldo in the flesh on his Irish trip to Carton House when I was about 14 (swooooon!)




21. One thing you want to do before you die? 
 I would love to go on a safari adventure as it really would be a once in a lifetime experience!


22. What quote/phrase do you live by? 
 I'm from Carlow Ireland where we have a bit of a unique dialect.. I tend to throw the word "quare" in everywhere I can and receive some funny looks in return! "Quare" is a slang word meaning very for example..it's quare hot today..that test was quare hard..I'm quare tired lad!


23. What’s your most listened to song on iTunes?
 Currenly Views by Drake and Lemonade by Beyoncé are on replay..
Waves by Mr. Probz is always on repeat too..soooo chilled!


23. What kind of style would you define yourself as having? 
My style is very much dependant on my mood. Sometimes I adore classic girly-girl chic and other days I like to be a bit more edgy with my style and accesories.


24. What was the last thing you bought? 
My Nutribullet, it really is the best machine EVER for getting your daily dose of fruit and veggies and genuinely makes you feel healthier!

25. Are you going to nominate anyone to do this tag?
