I’m off to Blog On in Manchester come September and i wanted to get to know other people who are going and for them to get to know me a bit more 😊 On the Blog On Facebook page, they suggested writing a post about yourself from some questions they picked so we can avoid that awkward introductions people normally do! So here’s mine:
Describe yourself in three words
Loud, loyal and funny.
How long have you been blogging and what made you start?
I started in March 2016 and I basically wanted to just write down what I was thinking. Whether it was about make up, planning my wedding and honeymoon, then finally about my pregnancy and motherhood.
What was the inspiration behind your blog name?
My surname is Buckley so I knew I wanted to incorporate that into the blog name. The Bespoke part was to show that as a person I am unique, what I talk about in my posts are my unique thoughts and opinions. Using ‘Bespoke Buckley’ uses alliteration which to me makes the title roll off the tongue.
Your most remembered thing from your childhood
I honestly don’t remember much from my childhood (I wonder if I’m suppressing a memory???) but I would say going to the New Forest Show with my Nan, Grandad and Sister. My grandparents were Pearly Kings and Queens and always went to raise money for charities. My sister and I were Pearly Princesses so went with them dress in our own little Pearly suits and large feather hats with our little collection boxes.
Something interesting about me is . . .
I am a secret snob! You would never catch me outside wearing tracksuit trousers or jogging pants, I will only wear jeans (sometimes jeggings at a push!). I will rarely wear jumpers outside unless it’s really cold, but if it is cold then I tend to wear a nice top/blouse with a cardigan/wrap. I will always have my hair, foundation and mascara done before I go anywhere.
Which social media platform best describes your personality?
I would say Facebook as I have my friends and family close to me. I’m a very friendly person who would talk to everyone so I’m bound to start a conversation with past friends and catch up. There’s always something funny to watch which can cheer me up if I’m sad.
What is your happy song?
I can’t think of a a single song to be honest but I am loving Ed Sheerans and Bruno Mars albums at the moment as they always put me in a good mood and I happily sing along.
What is your favourite alcoholic drink?
Hands down it has to be a Gin and Tonic!
What is your favourite cake?
Anything to do with caramel or fudge. Salted caramel products are always a win with me.
What is your favourite takeaway dish?
Sweet and sour chicken Hong Kong style. Always has been and always will be.
Where is your dream holiday destination and why?
Paris. I love the Parisian culture and the French language. I’m so lucky to be going to France for my birthday in October 😊
What would your superhero name be?
Probably something stupid like ‘Emotional Woman’, I can make people cry with my death stare haha.
If you had a magical power, would you want to have and why?
Travel back in time. I would visit all the famous places in history and experience them all. I would also meet my nan and grandad once again.
What one weapon would help you survive a zombie apocalypse?
I know my dads probably reading this and thinking ‘Nooo! Don’t pick that!’ But I would probably go for a hunting knife. Reasons being: you don’t have to worry about ammo running out, ou can prepare food, use it for hunting or crafting more weapons. Unfortunately the downside would be getting close to a zombie to kill it…
If you could send something into space, what would it be?
A letter to loved ones who have passed away, so it can be that much closer to heaven ❤️
What would you have on your gravestone?
The worlds best daughter, mother and wife (Tom, I will haunt you if you re-marry. I will find out…)
If an EMP wiped out all mechanical forms of transport, how would you get to BlogOn?
A good old fashioned bicycle! It’s a 500 mile round trip so I better leave early!
Well there we go, please do pop down your ‘I’m going to Blog On’ Linky in the comments below so I can get to know you a bit better 😊 see you there!
