11 Things !

So I suppose I wasn't technically tagged in one of these, but the lovely Susannah Bean tagged "everyone" so that counts, right? (: 

This is the technical mumbojumbo:
1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and 11 random things.
3. Answer the questions set for you in the original post.
4. Create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog/twitter and tell them you've tagged them.

(follow me on instagram! @seductivemania)

11 Facts About ME:

1. I'm classically trained on the piano, I took lessons for most of my life (about 12 years) until we moved to a place without a piano and a dinky keyboard just wasn't cutting it. Anyone who's felt the difference knows that the weight and the sound are just completely... wrong.

2. I've tried just about every single organized sport there is (soccer, swim team, cheerleading, football, basketball, tennis, track, skating, snowboarding, tennis, rugby, horseback riding, gymnastics, dance etc.) and have NEVER been able to get into one! I'm not sure if it's the routine and organization (which stresses me out) or just the general work involved (i'm way to lazy for my own good).

3. I'm not a very picky eater (ok, well I won't eat plastic - cheese wizz, twinkies, kraft singles, etc) but I can not, and will not eat raw onions, canned tuna, or anything containing molasses. No molasses = no gingerbread flavoured anything. Yuck.

4. I have 2 tattoos and I'm planning on getting my third next month. My first is on my right collar bone and it says serendipity. I get a lot of questions about it, but I still love it. My second is an infinity sign on my wrist. 

5. I have ZERO piercings. Okay well, my ears are pierced and my nose used to be, but my nose lasted all of 2 weeks before I took it out, and every time I try and wear earrings my ears swell up and bleed.

6. I'm kind of allergic to animals. And by animals I mean all of them. If I pet them and forget to wash my hands and then touch my eyes they go red and soo itchy. Which is awesome because I live with a beastly dog and 4 cats. 

7. I love making lists. They make me feel organized (which I'm not). It's weird because I actually really hate structure.

8. I'm terribly messy (living with boyfriend I have one section of the room in which I'm allowed to make a mess - between the wall and my side of the bed. It's always piled with stuff) but I'm OCD about my clothes. I think it comes from working in retail for so many years, but I always have to fold my clothes just right and my hangers have to hang all in the same direction. Weird, I know.

9. I'm cursed with technology. I'm on my second iPhone - probably my 13th phone in 6 years. And my 4th laptop in 3 years. And I'm currently without a camera because I lost my 7th one (in 7 years). It's an expensive curse.

10. I'm a little bit of a pack rat. I keep things that I think will be important and maybe one day I'll turn it all into a scrapbook. But of course I'm too lazy for that.

11. I really want to move away, cut my hair short, dye it, buy a kitten, a macbook, and a new wardrobe and start over. With my boyfriend of course!

Susannah Bean's Questions!

1. Who's your celebrity crush?
Either Chris Evans or Max Thieriot... but Thieriot is probably higher up now because he played Ned in Nancy Drew and I just watched this movie where Evans was a rapist.. ahha.

2. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Oooooh boy, in my 6th grade yearbook I said I wanted to be a mountain climber, I made my grandpa quit smoking because I was going to be a pilot/astronaut and he couldn't come with me if he didn't... and you know what? I'm still a kid, so my latest thing is cooking of some kind. Maybe I'll revisit this question when I'm actually grown up. 

3. What's your favorite flower?
Becky Daisies! I love all wildflowers, I think they're so beautiful. Black eyed susans, honey suckle, even dandelions. But daisies have always been my favourite. 

4. If you could only drink one thing for the rest of your life besides water, what would it be?
Vokda! Joking, it would probably be cranberry juice. I always crave cranberry juice. 

5. Do you believe in ghosts?
Hmmmmm... I don't believe in being able to see ghosts I don't think, BUT I do believe that the spiritual presence of people who have passed on does exist. 

6. What's your favorite meal at your favorite restaurant?
I wish I knew! I'm not one for routines, my boyfriend and I like to try everything - especially since we're both in culinary. The last best thing I ate was duck confit poutine at a little hole in the wall downtown, but another favourite that sticks in my head is the thin crust pizza at Baker Creek Bistro in Lake Louise, Alberta.

7. What was your favorite cartoon as a kid?
I loved The Busy World Of Richard Scarry (aka Busy Town...) I'm not sure if anyone has ever heard of it but I watched those VHS tapes sooo much they wore right out and my little brother and sister barely got to enjoy the awesomeness of Busy Town.

8. What's your favorite thing to wear from your closet?
Jeans, jeans, jeans. I have so many clothes in my closet and I try and convince myself that one day I'll wear them again... I think I've decided to mix things up a little bit (But we'll seeee!)

9. If you could wake up tomorrow with the knowledge and ability to do something that you can't do now, what would it be?
I'm not sure if I'd rather be able to draw or sing. I'm musically inclined (a superstar on the recorder, but seriously I'm bomb) and I've always wanted to be the star of a girlband. But with auto tune, that's possible anyways... And you can't fake drawing. So I'm not sure!

10. What's your favorite song of all time?
This is gonna make me sound lame - Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. It's so calming and beautiful and magical and wonderful and I love it. It's just a classic !

11. What's an annoying habit or quirk of yours that people probably don't know about?
Curiosity killed the.. Becky. I'm so curious (nosy) about everything! People think that I don't trust my boyfriend because I always ask him who he's talking to, but really I'm just curious! And people who text next to you on the bus? I ALWAYS want to know what they're texting about. 

My Questions:

1. Do you have any guilty pleasures?
2. What is something important you are always forgetting/forgetting to do?
3. What is your biggest pet peeve?
4. Boxers/briefs or bikini panties vs thongs?
5. What was your longest relationship?
6. What's a talent that you've kept secret?
7. What is your signature dance move?
8. What is your favourite word?
9. What is your favourite breakfast food?
10. If you were offered $10,000 to shave your head, would you do it?
11. What is one item of clothing that you wish you could wear, but can't (because of body type, skin color, climate, etc..)

I'm going to tag my blogger bffs Lecinda and Chelsea, and anyone else who reads this! Leave a link to your blog if you decide to fill it out!

WoooHoooo ! Finally Done,


  1. I swear when I came on here yesterday your blog was all broken! All back to normal now hurray! :)

    Will do this later today :D

    PS: Gingerbread is the best thing *ever*! I can't believe you don't like it!

    1. I wish I could like gingerbread - but molasses just isn't my thing ! ): and oky, I'll add that follow button - if I can find it ! Thanks for reminding me - ill deactivate my Wordpress blog ahha. Can't wait to read your answers !

  2. Yay! Thanks for playing :) I'm so super messy too, but my boyfriend is too. Except, he tolerates it for a while and then one day gets all huffy and needs EVERYTHING CLEAN RIGHT NOW!!! And then I feel like the bad guy :) But I like doing one big massive cleaning session more than a little every day. So glad I'm not the only messy girl out there, sometimes I feel like I am!!

    1. Thanks for inviting me ! Haha - I'm the exact same way ! But now that I live with bf I have to keep myself super clean... Which means I end up doing a ton more laundry because all of my 'try on and then throw on the floor' clothes end up there :p dont worry, you're not alone !

  3. OMG on a side note just realised why I thought your blog was broken. I was going to wordpress bwhahaha! Add the navbar up the top so I can follow! (not just follow by email!)
