73 Vogue Questions With Oh January

I'm transporting us back to the Bebo days, with a little Q&A post. To be honest, I thought this was a great idea but this could be a total cringe fest.
Have you been watching the '73 Questions With' feature on Vogue's YouTube channel? I'm quite obsessed and it's inspired me to do a little get to know me post. You probably won't know me any better than before but who knows - at least you'll leave here knowing I like pasta.

I'm currently at home on a Saturday afternoon wrapped in my bear dressing gown (with ears) feeling poorly and this was a great way to pass the time. My dog is keeping me company and also taking advantage of the inside of my dressing gown - he's like a mini hot water bottle. So, things could be worse.

If you don't have a clue what in the hell I'm talking about, take a watch of Swift rising to the challenge...
