I have been SO EXCITED to write this post as today I am going to be answering 10 questions with my best friend Ella!
If you follow my Twitter, you will know that me and Ella are really close friends and have been for a very long time.
I wanted to write this post as you see so many YouTubers and bloggers do best friend and boyfriend/girlfriend question tags and many are videos but both me and Ella don’t have the time to sit and do a video (I’m always sleeping, she’s a mum) and besides, we would probably end up giggling A LOT during it so it’s probably better that we stick to the written word!
So there’s 10 questions and I will leave a blank copy of the questions and the “rules”, so to speak, so if anyone wants to do this with their best friend, they can! I’d love this to become an actual tag so if you want to do it, please feel free!
- Introduce your friend a little bit without giving the information in the questions away
- Post a copy of the “rules”
- Post a blank copy of the questions
- Post an early photo of you and your best friend and a more recent one
HOW DID YOU MEET?
Melanie: First day of high school I think! We were both in the same form and I remember Ella came from a school where she was one of the only ones that came up to our high school and I just hated my primary peers aha
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN FRIENDS FOR?
Melanie: Since Year 7 (2011) so nearly 7 years???
Ella: Since year 7 so about 6 years
FIRST THING YOU REMEMBER ABOUT THE OTHER PERSON?
Melanie: Long blonde hair and SUCH DAMN BLUE EYES?! You know when blue eyes are really really blue? And the love for New York and pugs/David & Goliath??
Ella: We were both super nerdy 😉
Melanie: This is very true and now Ella is super cool and I’m sat here in bed with my cat and makeup addiction
BEST MEMORY TOGETHER?
Melanie: Oh boy. It’s either seeing each other for the first time in 3 years (Ella left for a different high school but we ended up at the same college) and walking down to college and catching up or when I went up to meet her son on my lunch break. That was pretty special.
Ella: Dressing my cat and dog up for form photos
Melanie: Oh crap I forgot about that!
MOST EMBARRASSING MEMORY?
Melanie: That one tragic talent show performance of Price Tag by Jessie J in our first month of high school…
Ella: Definitely singing in [Our high school’s] got talent “EVERY BODY LOOK TO THE LEFT”
(No, I will NOT be finding out footage and uploading it)
WHO IS MORE EMOTIONAL?
Melanie: Lmao me. The amount of times I’ve cried over little things…
Ella: You by far I’m quite minimal with my emotions
WHO GIVES THE BEST ADVICE?
Melanie: I think we both give our fair share of advice. Ella is better with more social things and worries whereas I’m more the practical mother bird
Ella: You! Without you my iron levels would be shocking
WHO IS MORE LIKELY TO BLOW ALL THEIR CASH ON PAYDAY?
Melanie: Both of us. We are both as bad as each other when it comes to spending money and I think we both have zero regrets
Ella: Me… I spend money the second I get it…
£1000 TO DO ANYTHING AS FRIENDS, WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
Melanie: Makeup and clothes shopping. And KFC.
Ella: Makeup shopping spree
DESCRIBE EACH OTHER IN 5 WORDS
Melanie: Funny, resilient, caring, resourceful (This girl pours gravy on her KFC fries… genius) and beautiful inside and out
Ella: Hilarious, kind, sensitive, smart and brave
And that’s us! I am so blessed to have Ella as a friend and honestly? I don’t know where I’d be without her!
We lost touch for a little while and then one day just bumped into each other on the bus! Since then we’ve pretty much stayed in touch and I am so glad because honestly? It’s hard not to smile when Ella is around because her laugh is so damn infectious!
