A note from Joelle...
1. Are you named after anyone?
I was not named after someone my parents knew, but they sought inspiration from the book of Joel in the Bible and just turned it into a female name!
2. When was the last time you cried?
I have to admit that I don't cry often. I guess I'm a bit of an ice queen when it comes to real emotion. I did cry tears of happiness though when I got my A Level results in August.
3. Do you have children?
4. If you were another person, would you be friends with yourself?
I think so. As nice as I try to be, I am a bit of a complex character! But at the end of the day, I really like to help people to achieve their goals for the future. Whether they have a talent or passion for something, I like helping them out with contacts/promotion and stuff.
5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
My world is built on sarcasm, I afraid. But I do not use it in a mean/degrading way like some people do.
6. Will you ever bungee jump?
I definitely would! I love stuff like that!
7. What is your favourite cereal?
It's a toss-up between Honey Nut Shredded Wheat and Lucky Charms (just the marshmallows though).
8. What is the first thing you notice about people?
Now that I am more aware about fashion and make-up due to blogging, I would say their fashion, then their face. People that usually say 'eyes' are total liars!
9. What is your eye colour?
Really dark brown - almost black-looking
10. Scary films or happy endings?
Happy endings! I seriously cannot stand scary films. To put this into perspective for you, I have nightmares for weeks after watching 'Watership Down' as a kid.
11. Favourite smells?
'Loverdose' perfume, apple pie, lavender, vanilla and festive Yankee candles.
12. Summer or Winter?
If I was asked this question last year, I would have said winter. But last summer was amazing and everyone seems in better spirits when the sun is out!
13. Computer or TV?
Definitely the computer. I haven't watched a program from a TV in half a year, and I didn't even miss it! With a computer, you can watch films, blog, listen to music, use social media, etc. So that prefer the computer.
14. What is the furthest you've ever been from home?
China! I went when I was 15 and loved it!
15. Do you have any special talents?
I can make a flower shape with my tongue if that counts? I have also played the flute up to Grade 8 and will probably do the Diploma once I have time off uni in the Summer.
16. Where were you born?
17. What are your hobbies?
I have quite a few: Blogging, play writing, novella writing, editing my blogger magazine, amateur opera singing, semi-precious stone collecting, baking, playing the flute, learning French, going to the theatre, and many more!
18. Do you have any pets?
No.We used to have fish when we were younger and we often looked after our neighbour's or cousin's rabbits for a few weeks. I also had a little frog called 'Herbie' but she did not last long :'(. I really want a Bichon Frise dog though!
19. What is your favourite film?
That's a tough one! I am really into my chick-flicks and know 'The House Bunny', 'Easy A', 'Angus Thongs...', She's The Man' and 'Mean Girls' word-for-word. But I would say that 'She's The Man' is the best and my favourite out of these. Ooooh no, i have changed my mind: Sister Act 2 is my fave film! The score is amazing!
20. Do you have any siblings?
