Crissy Chats #16: The British Tag

Hello everybody!

Yesterday I received a notification on Twitter from the lovely Charlotte (thanks for the tag!!) whose blog I discovered the exact time she sent me her link because she had tagged me on a tag! And not just any tag, The British Tag! I had seen this - like Charlotte - on Essie's video but this tag was created by Sammi from The Beauty Crush so I think this is super fun! 

Although I'm not British, I'm a big fan geek of British culture so let's see if I'm that British or not - all of you who read me and hold a British passport can judge, hahaha!

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day? + How many sugars?

I'm a big fan of tea (I bet you didn't expect that one, did you? Not like I worship tea or something) and in Winter I tend to drink 2-3 cups of tea but in Summer I get 2 max. It's way too hot here so I either buy iced tea or drinks tons of cold water...

2. Favourite part of your roast?

(I'm yet to try a Sunday roast. I regret not eating it when I was in England last year...)

3. Favourite dunking biscuit?

Any biscuit, I personally love butter biscuits from Walkers - they sell them here and I love those! But any biscuit, including digestive, are good. I mean - BISCUITS. 

4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?

Charlotte wrote an awesome paragraph about Wimbledon and London but I don't think I have one. However I had to check Sammi's video again and she talked about going by the sea and hey, I do love that sometimes! I think I will miss it when I move to Sheffield. 

5. Favourite word?

I love the word "giggle" because it unconsciously makes me giggle and "quirky"!

6. Cockney rhyme slang?

"Nice new Kettle you're wearing, mate"

I love it because of the meaning. I think - if I'm not mistaken - it means "nice watch you're wearing", right? It makes me laugh because in Spain we have a similar slang and it's funny.

7. Favourite sweet?

I got severly addicted to Crunchies in the UK, I got so sad when I couldn't find them here at the international parts of big super markets - but now I do and that's when I lose it.

8. What would your pub be called?

I'm a big fan of English pub names but I'm not sure how I'd name it. Maybe mmm... The Spaniard's Attempt ( think of a name, HAHA)

9. No.1 British person?

Queen Victoria.

10. Favourite shop / Restaurant?

Is it weird that I honestly love Boots? Because I do. I also like Topshop but that's a given! It's still a bit pricey for me but it's a great shop.

I enjoyed a lot The Blues Kitchen in Camden. Their burgers were amazing!

11. What british song pops into your head?

Always look on the bright side of life, definitely!

12. Marmite?

I've never tried it and I'd love to. Maybe I like it!

Shameless selfie because look at my crazy hurrr.


  1. It's so interesting to read this, as a british person! Although i'm not sure if i can really count myself as british because i don't drink tea!
    But i totally agree with you on the Crunchies front - they are so tasty!!

    1. Hahahaha as long as your passport is from the UK, you're British! :D I know how you feel, I'm Spanish and personally I don't see the fuss in paella, wine and tapas...

      Crunchies yum! I want a whole box of them xx

  2. It was so much fun reading your answers!! I agree crunchies are the best! x

    1. Hahahah I'm glad you liked them love xx

  3. Haha this is great! You NEED to try a Sunday dinner, I'm having one tonight!

    1. I definitely do!! I regret not eating it so much!! So jealous I bet it was delicious xxx

  4. Definitely agree with you - Crunchies are the best!

  5. Haha! I am British & I am the most unpatriotic person ever! I can't wait to leave Britain so it's so interesting to see this xx

    1. I'm not very patriotic of my own country either but I'm glad you found this interesting!! x

  6. I loved your blog

    Please visit:

  7. This was really interesting to read ! I used to have a Crunchie obsession. You need to try Wispa bars, they're my current fave ;D

    1. Oh yes, I will definitely try them!! I'm so happy I'm not the only one who has or had a Crunchie obsession hahahaha x

  8. Such an awesome tag! I would definitely say as a British person that I think you've done very well and seem to be very "UK inspired"- you drink a lot of tea after all ;) I had actually never heard of the cockney rhyming slang you mentioned, that's pretty bad right?! Haha! Despite loving tea and enjoying days by the sea, and fish and chips of course (have you tried them? You MUST!!) I can be really unpatriotic too! I hate Harry Potter, football, the Queen, roast dinners and everyone in the US seemed crazy on the show "Misfits" when I was over there, but I've never seen it ;)

    1. Hello Sophie!! Thanks for the comment, you're such a sweetheart. I do love tea! Specially in Winter, it makes me so warm and fuzzy inside... - like Costa's hot choco with marshmallows, YUM!

      Can you believe I also haven't gone to a chippy? I usually ate with my friend at his accommodation so I barely ate out. But I will have plenty of time now that I'm moving to the UK!

      (I love Misfits! Well, I used to love it at least! Then it all went downhill after Robert Sheehan left) x

  9. Lovely post, I noticed a few tags going around on Youtube and really enjoyed watching them <3 I have also not tried Marmite but my friend had the marmite crisps and I had one but hated the taste :P really strange as the flavour changes in your mouth so not to keen to try anything else with marmite haha xx | Giveaway

    1. Oh I saw those marmite crisps! I don't know if I will like marmite but I will try it because - why not?! But yes I know it's too salty... eeek we will see! Hahahaha! Thanks for passing by Jenny xxx

  10. Thanks for tagging me hun! Looking forward to doing it :) I don't drink tea at all, not a great fan of it - shocking!! I can't believe you've not had a roast dinner, they are so damn good... MMM! xxx
