20 Random Facts About Me

To be honest, this is a bit of a filler post as I’ve really not been feeling well for the last couple of weeks. I haven’t really been able to my shit together properly with being organised, getting words written and photos taken and edited πŸ™ So I thought instead of not posting at all, it’d be nice for you all to get to know me a little bit better πŸ™‚

These are quite often the kinds of posts I love the most πŸ˜€ So here are 20 little random little facts about me; some you might know already, some you might not!

  1. I’m 5 foot 7 which seems to surprise a lot of people, as they always think I’m going to be a lot shorter than that!
  2. I’ve had my septum pierced for about 5 years but I rarely wear anything except a keeper in it anymore as it’s a pain to take in and out for work πŸ™
  3. I love grey; it’s probably my favourite colour πŸ™‚
  4. Apart from cats, my favourite animals are stags/deer and otters.
  5. I’ve had a variety of jobs ranging from a cashier in a bank (Natwest), an elf in Santa’s Grotto, a science lab technician in a school and working in the gift shop at the Isle of Wight steam railway!
  6. If I could only eat one savoury food forever, it would have to be pasta! I absolutely love any kind (plus I can sneak in other foods with a spag bol or a carbonara!!)
  7. I used to be in a young actors theatre group and the owner of the group was Ian Cullen from Family Affairs (an old Channel 5 soap!)
  8. It took my two attempts to pass my driving test but I passed my theory first time with 100% πŸ˜€
  9. I’ve walked the entire length of the Golden Gate Bridge (and back) and it took me a good couple of hours.
  10. If I could have my hair any colour right now, I’d probably go for a pastel peach colour πŸ™‚
  11. I’ve only lived in three different places; Bagshot in Surrey, Shanklin on the Isle of Wight and Brighton in East Sussex.
  12. I have two older brothers and two older sisters and between them they’ve given me three nieces, five nephews, one great-niece and two great-nephews!!
  13. When I first met J, he asked me out a couple of times but I turned him down. Oops!
  14. I love sitting in little cafes on my own and watching the world go by with a coffee and some cake πŸ™‚
  15. If I could only wear one makeup brand for the rest of my life, I’d have to choose Sleek!
  16. My first pets were Russian dwarf hamsters called Mallow and Zinia.
  17. J asked me to move in about two months after we got together and I moved in two months after that. We’ve now been living together for six years β™₯β™₯
  18. I got into blogging because I stumbled upon Zoella’s vlogs, I mentioned themΒ to a friend; she told me about Hannah Gale’s blog and I was hooked reading blogs after that! Not long after, I set up my own πŸ™‚
  19. I like playing FPS (first person shooters) and I’m a Silver Elite on CS:GO #nerd
  20. My first tattoo was a Buffy tattoo!

Random fact about me… I used to have pet rats and I took them everywhere with me – I used to put one of them in my hoodie pocket with some food and take him shopping with me, she’d just curl up and go to sleep! xx

  3. I’m so gutted I missed out on Friendsfest again 😫 You’ll love the studio tour. I’ve not long been but am definitely booking back to see the forbidden forest. A random fact about me is that I was once on the news as a child of the 90s bouncing on a lowlow ball πŸ˜‚ Xx

    1. Awww no πŸ™ Sorry to hear that. I’ve been to the HP studio tour before but it was a few years ago now. Ahaha, that’s an awesome fact!! xx

  4. I love this post! Full of random info, which is great. I somehow didn’t think of you as 5′ 7″ (don’t know why). And weird connection I went to uni with Ian Cullen’s daughter who now lives in Oz.
    Such a great idea for a post. Random fact about me, I’ve recently fallen in love with the liqueur Chambord!!

      I’m not sure I’ve ever tried that, but I’ve seen the ads on tv!!

    Random fact about me: my favourite snack is Flame grilled steak mccoys dipped in creme egg fondant (or chocolate fudge icing-the Betty Crocker stuff)…xx

      1. OMG Holly the poor guy! Me and D were married within a year and a half πŸ˜‚. Ooh yeah I used to do that too, it’s really the only thing I miss about McDonald’s hah xx

  8. Aww poor J, a he got his woman in the end! Oh I love pasta, I’d quite happily eat that for the rest of my life. I’m 5ft 7 and a half, people always think I’m shorter.

  9. sitting in cafes with coffee and cake watching the world go by is one of my favourite things too! Especially if it’s raining out too! I *really* hope to see a blog from you soon with pastel peach hair – that sounds amazing! I’m sure you’d look gorgeous with it!

  10. I always think of you as tall but that’s probably because I know you IRL and I’m so short. But to me you’re like a very tall person.

I love reading your comments:
