Get to know me!

Hi everybody!

Today I have a different post for you guys, and this is inspired by the plethora of 'Get to know me' tag posts. I love reading these posts on all the bloggers and vloggers that I follow and I have been informed that a blog tag is as acceptable as a video tag (thanks Jen!) so here goes, enough with the waffle and on with the deets!

Vital Stats:
Name- Aisling Rose Elizabeth Sheehy
Nicknames- Legally Blonde, Midget, Pidge, John, Squirt, mostly Ash
Birthday- 7th October
Place of Birth- Erinville Hospital Cork
Star Sign- Libra (pretty appropriate, eh?)
Occupation- Apprentice Corporate Solicitor


Appearance:

Hair Colour- naturally dark brown, however I am a slave to highlights = blonde
Hair Length- shoulder length
Eye Colour- grey/sometimes blue. Mostly grey though.
Best Feature- Erm, when my hair is order, I like that. I spend a shocking amount of money on my hair- trips to hairdresser, highlights, conditioners, etc.
Braces- nope, never needed them!
Piercings- haha, I'm very conventional- have had my ears pierced for years, got them pierced a second time a few months ago but didn't like it so let them close up, not planning on getting any more any time soon!
Tattoos- nope, none! Couldn't ever decide on one thing that I would like permanently etched!
Righty or Lefty- Righty!


Firsts:

Best Friend- Snow White a.k.a. Snowy, my first ever dog. She was a West Highland White Terrier, I was about three when we got her, I remember going to the house to get her and picking her out and christening her. She was a lovely dog, the most loyal companion. When she had to be put down a few years ago, I was inconsolable.
Award- the vast majority of my awards have been academic- I am frightfully boring I know! When I was in Junior Infants, I coloured in my entire vocabulary sheet in one night because I knew all the words anyway and I got a prize of a packet of Jelly Babies. It was one of my proudest moments!
Sport- never really been one for sports I'm afraid!
Real Holiday- don't know what exactly constitutes a 'real holiday', we used to go away every year when I was younger- I think maybe a trip to Wales may have been my first 'real' holiday.
Concert- this is a bit naff- when I was about 13 I think, went to the Mitchelstown Party in the Park and watched Six perform before they split. All very exciting! First real concert was probably Oxegen 2005. Best concert to date was the X Factor concert last year in the Point, brilliant time!


Favourites:
Film- tough! Armageddon makes me weep everytime. White Chicks in hilarious!
TV Show- Love Grey's Anatomy, Vampire Diaries, The Good Wife and all versions of The Apprentice and Dragon's Den
Colour- Pinks, reds, corals
Song- This question is too hard, I love far too many songs, don't have one single, standout fave.
Restaurant- I love Luigi Malones and there is a restaurant in my home town called 'Peppers' which I love too.
Store- depends on what I am purchasing! For work clothes, I like Next and Dorothy Perkins because they have great petite sections, Penneys handy for the old reliables, loving Bershka at the moment and I can't get enough of Forever 21.
Book- Again, too hard! I like lots of different kinds of books. I love 'The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People' by Stephen R. Covey and 'How to Walk in High Heels' by Camilla Morton. I'm currently reading 'Lessons of a Lipstick Queen' by Poppy King.
Magazine- U and Stellar because they have clothes and gear from Irish stores with Irish prices. I also splurge on Cosmopolitan every single month and I pick up Glamour magazine quite frequently also.
Shoes- I love my black Aldo heels that I picked up in Chicago a few years ago- they are so hard to walk in, I potter about the place, but I love them so much. They are a perfect size 3 and fit perfectly. 



Currently:

Feeling- happy and excited- got exam results last week and have now finished my FE1s forevermore, and I am moving up to Dublin and starting my dream job in an amazing law firm in less than three weeks time.
Single or Taken- Taken, I'm a kept woman
Eating- not currently eating anything at this minute but loving mangoes at the moment
Listening To- Nicki Minaj 'Roman Holiday'
Thinking About- where the heck did I leave my purse?
Watching- nothing right now but I will be watching The Apprentice tonight for sure!
Wearing- Ralph Lauren rugby navy and pink rugby shirt, black A-wear jeans, pink Converse


Future:

Want Children- Absolutely. Two boys, two girls and a surprise!
Want To Be Married- I am a traditional kind of girl- someday I would like to get married
Careers in Mind- there is only one career in my mind- I want to be a kick ass corporate lawyer- busting out the corporate deals by day, whipping up everybody with my corporate swagger. I may appear all fluffy and light but you wouldn't want to meet me in the board room! I'm fiercely ambitious, I want to work my way right up the partner track.
Where do you want live- I am more of a city girl at heart but I don't think I would leave Ireland in the long term. I am moving up to Dublin in a few weeks and in the process of househunting right now, harder then I thought! Eventually, I would like a big mansion overlooking the sea in South Dublin City. I don't ask for much!


Do you believe in?:

God- I do have faith and I believe in a greater good. I don't necessarily believe in the organisation of religion as it exists in Ireland- I don't believe you have to go to Mass or idol worship a priest to be spiritual. Each to their own.
Miracles- Absolutely. Miracles and serendipity!
Love at first sight- No, not really. I believe in lust at first sight- seeing somebody and going 'phwoar!', but love is emotional, and I am probably a bit cynical!
Ghosts- hmm maybe not ghosts like Casper but I definitely believe in spirits, I would hate to think that when a person we love dies, that they are gone forever. I completely believe in guardian angels, I feel like some of my dead relatives look out for me.
Aliens- not aliens in the Men in Black sense but I don't think us mere earthlings are alone in the Universe. The Universe is massive like. Just saying.
Soul Mates- yeah I do actually. I think there is somebody for everybody, but sometimes finding that special somebody is hard. I think people who are soulmates were meant to find each other.
Heaven- yeah, maybe not the pearly white gates, but I would like to think there is a better place.
Hell- hey, you don't have to die to experience hell- try sitting the Law Society's FE1 exams. That is hell on earth right there for you!
Kissing on a first date- each to their own. It's kind of par for the course in Ireland 
Yourself- absolutely. If you don't believe in yourself, how can you expect anybody else to believe in you?

So that concludes my tag- sorry if it's alot of text! Hope you know me a little better by now! 
Thanks for reading
