10 Facts About Me

Thought I would switch things up a little bit and write up a lighthearted post that isn't to do with fashion or beauty. I just feel like opening up to you readers today and letting you know a bit more about me. I still find it so strange to think that most of you reading know so much about me and I know nothing about you! So when you've finished reading this I would love you to comment down below and let me know an interesting fact about yourself!

1. I am a vegetarian (well pescatarian technically). I've been one for around 5 years now I think. I did have a short break for around 2 weeks because I couldn't resist some Fridge Raiders that my friend was eating, ew makes me feel so sick thinking about it now. I always get asked why, and that's fair enough, but there are honestly so many different reasons all put together and if I explained I would be here all day. 

2. Coffee is one of my favourite things in the world. I don't live anywhere near a Costa/ Starbucks and so when I know I'm going to be able to get one I genuinely get excited about it. I love all kinds of coffee too. My favourite orders being 'Skinny Mocha Latte' or 'Skinny Caramel Latte'.  I also find it really fascinating to know what other peoples orders are, which I know is probably very strange and now I'm opening up to you all I'm going to come across as a complete and utter weirdo haha. 

3. I'm super short. I'm only 5ft exactly (possibly even a tiny bit shorter). I've never really enjoyed being small. I got picked on a lot at school for it but these days it doesn't really bother me at all. It means I get to buy loads of super bad ass heels to wear and I don't look stupidly tall in them and best of all, I get the pick of most guys as they're all taller than me! Plus, most guys like short girls, so it's all good! 

4. I have a penpal who lives in Barcelona! We found each other online around 3 years ago as I really wanted a penpal to write letters to and I just think the whole concept of basically having a best friend in a completely different part of the world is incredible. Her name is Mar and she is the same age as me. We probably manage to get one letter out to each other a month. We also put together parcels and make gifts for each other to send, it's so lovely! We are still yet to meet in person but it definitely feels like we already know everything about each other, it's like we're best friends and I love it. We're hopefully going to meet either this summer or the next one and I cannot wait!

5. I am a complete germ freak! I think it all comes down to the fact that I have a major fear of vomit, so I feel like I have to be super hygienic to try and stop me from getting ill and being sick. Kinda weird I know. I use hand sanitiser all the time, like I genuinely freak out if I haven't got any with me (especially if I'm out in public). People are gross and I do not want their germs lol.

6. I have a HUGE and very very odd crush on Simon Cowell. Such a weird one, I know. I literally have no idea why but I literally love him so much.

7. I am a fully qualified Level 2 & Level 3 Electrical Beauty Therapist. It's what I've studied at college for the past 2 years. I did enjoy certain aspects of it however I now know that it's definitely not what I want to do for a living, I'm much more interested in the make-up side of things and that is why I'm going back to college next year to study Theatrical Make-Up and Special Effects!

8. I hate going to the hairdressers. I know it's supposed to be a treat but I just absolutely hate the whole experience. I've been to many different salons and It's not that I don't like them, It's a few things put together really. I always feel really intimidated when I go into a salon, and I also hate letting people loose with my hair. I hardly trust anybody to cut or colour it and that's why I rarely go to the hairdressers. My sister is actually a qualified hairdresser so when I am in desperate need of getting my hair sorted out I usually get her to do it.

9. I'm a sucker for trashy telly. I watch all the usual 'Made In Chelsea' 'Towie', that kinda thing. But then on a whole other level I also love watching 'The Jeremy Kyle Show'. Although the programme is terrible and the people on the show, well...I don't really need to say anything haha! But once I start watching, I can't stop. I get Super addicted and it just makes me feel kinda normal I guess.

10. I am desperate to get a French Bulldog. They're just the most adorable animal in the world and I want to own one more than anything else. We've never really been a 'dog' kinda family, we've always had cats. So when I move out one of the first things I'm doing is buying a Frenchie haha. I would preferably want a little boy and I shall name him Alfie.

Lots of love x


  1. These are such lovely facts! I am a bit of a sucker for trashy TV too, made in Chelsea is a favourite of mine. I think it is such a lovely idea to have a pen pal in another country. I have a friend in Japan, but we don't talk much anymore :)

  2. Thank you! Made in Chelsea is the best!! Thank you so much for reading xx
