I realised that, although you might follow me on Instagram/YouTube/Twitter/Pinterest/TikTok, you might not actually know a lot about me. I have shared some facts on my About Me page and there are a few at the bottom of my home page, but I always love finding out more about the people I follow online (that sounds a lot creepier than it did in my head as I was typing this...) I remember this being a tag back in the early days of YouTube, and I thought this would be a fun little post just sharing a little bit more about me in case anyone else is as nosey as I am!
I WORKED AT WALT DISNEY WORLD. Literally my favourite talking point ever, to the point where I think people I know in real life are fed up of hearing about it. I'm going to write a separate post about how I got my job andwhat it was like to work for the Mouse!
I AM VERY CLUMSY. Isn't the word clumsy such a cute word?! Me falling over all the time? Yeah, that's not as cute. I trip, I walk into things, I slip... I once walked into a mop bucket in a shop, put my foot in it (yep, there was water inside) and then if that wasn't embarrassing enough, I apologised to it.
I AM 5 FOOT 4. Pretty short!
WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, I WAS DESPERATE TO BREAK MY LEG. Don't ask why, I don't know. I was fascinated with crutches/casts and used to pretend I'd broken my leg, hobbling around with umbrellas.
I ONCE MET JONATHAN ROSS AND DIDN'T RECOGNISE HIM. He asked me for the time and I literally didn't recognise him whatsoever.
I HAVE A 5 YEAR OLD BLACK CAT CALLED NORA.
I LOVE DISNEY. As you may be able to tell from my first point!
I HAVE 3 TATTOOS. A heart on my wrist, a rose on my ribs and a bee on my arm.
WHEN I WAS IN PRIMARY SCHOOL, SOMEONE BET ME THAT I COULDN'T DO A ROLY POLY ON THE CONCRETE PLAYGROUND. I did it. Turns out they were right.
I HATE HORROR FILMS. Can't watch them. Except Saw, for some reason.
I MET MY BOYFRIEND BEN ON BUMBLE. It's almost our 3 year anniversary!
I USED TO WAIT OUTSIDE SHOPS AT MIDNIGHT FOR THE NEWEST HARRY POTTER BOOKS. My dad used to wake me up and take me so I could be one of the first to get the new books on release day.
WHEN I WAS LITTLE, I WANTED TO BE A LIBRARIAN. I even had a date stamp to stamp all of my own books.
MY FAVOURITE BAND IS THE 1975. I've seen them live at least 6/7 times.
I USED TO WAKE UP EARLY BEFORE SCHOOL SO I COULD PLAY THE SIMS. I would never do that now!
I LOVE RYAN REYNOLDS. Sorry Blake Lively, but it's true.
MY FIRST EVER JOB WAS AS A WAITRESS IN A GOLF CLUB. I used to make sandwiches and drinks for the golfers.
MUSHROOMS AND MAYONNAISE ARE GROSS. You couldn't pay me enough to eat them.
I PASSED BOTH MY THEORY TEST AND PRACTICAL DRIVING TEST ON THE THIRD TIME. Apparently I'm a third-time-lucky kinda girl!
MY FAVOURITE SINGER IS TAYLOR SWIFT. I've seen her live twice - one on the Red tour, once on the Reputation tour.
I HAVE SIZE 7 FEET. Which are SO out of proportion when you consider my height.
I'M REALLY BAD AT ESTIMATING DISTANCE. How far is a mile? Absolutely no idea.
I BROKE MY ANKLE BY FALLING DOWN THE STAIRS JUST BEFORE MY 18TH BIRTHDAY. Which, as you'll know by number 4, I was desperate to do for years! Wasn't as fun as I'd thought.
I USED TO HAVE A MASSIVE CRUSH ON JACK BLACK. Around the time of School of Rock/The Holiday. B makes fun of me for it all the time.
MY EYESIGHT IS HORRENDOUS. I wear contact lenses most of the time and my (very thick) glasses at night or if my eyes hurt.
I'M REALLY INTERESTED IN TRUE CRIME. Murder cases, missing people cases, unsolved true crime cases... I find them really fascinating! Not sure why when I can't watch horror films, but there you go. My favourite true crime YouTubers are Eleanor Neale, Kendall Rae and Bella Fiori.
I USED TO GO TO GIRL GUIDES WITH MY FRIEND. WE BOTH QUIT, THEN WE REJOINED SO WE COULD GO ON A FREE TRIP TO A WATERPARK. I mean... who wouldn't?
MOTHS FREAK ME OUT. The way they flap, the way they fly towards you... no thanks.
CATS, FOXES AND LEMURS ARE MY FAVOURITE ANIMALS. They're just so cute!
I LOVE THE COLOUR PINK. You may already know this one! Especially from the photo above, which was taken in Boujee (a bar in Liverpool where
I WILL ONLY DRINK WATER IF IT'S COLD. I can't stand water at room temperature.
I DON'T LIKE DOUGHNUTS. I think they're gross. I also don't like waffles or pancakes (although I do like crepes).
I HAD BRACES. My teeth were so crooked! I used to love getting to choose the colours, although having them tightened hurt.
I USED TO HAVE A LISP WHEN I WAS YOUNGER AND HAD SPEECH THERAPY. I couldn't say words with the letter s in them.
I CAN'T SLEEP WITH MY FEET STICKING OUT OF THE DUVET. What if the monsters under the bed grab you?!
MY FAVOURITE MONTH IS DECEMBER. Fairy lights, my birthday, hot chocolate, Christmas, parties, New Years Eve.
I ONCE GOT STUNG BY A WASP BECAUSE I ACCIDENTALLY STOOD ON IT. I was on holiday and my foot had come out of my flip flop. A wasp had crawled onto my flip flop, and I stood on it. Ouch.
MY FAVOURITE FLOWERS ARE SUNFLOWERS. They're just so lovely and bright.
I WAS SO EXCITED TO VISIT PARIS, BUT WASN'T THAT IMPRESSED WITH THE EIFFEL TOWER. I thought it would be so much bigger than it was! Also the area around it isn't that nice.
I HAVE NEVER WORN FAKE TAN OR BEEN ON A SUNBED. Pale girl forever!
I CAN'T DRINK ORANGE JUICE WITH BITS IN. Gross.
I USED TO BE A REALLY FUSSY EATER. My dad had to bribe me with a new PS2 game when I was younger so I would try a McDonalds burger!
I DON'T DRINK HOT DRINKS. I just don't like them!
I AM CLAUSTROPHOBIC. I'm scared of lifts, crowds and sometimes get really anxious on planes.
I ALWAYS LOCK MY CAR DOORS AS SOON AS I GET IN. It's just safer!
I HATE WALKING RIGHT NEXT TO ROADS. Because I'm so clumsy, I always think I'll trip and fall into the road.
I'M SCARED OF HALLOWEEN. I love decorating for Halloween but I hate the actual night of Halloween. I always say to B that it's the perfect time for someone to commit a crime because everyone would think it was just a joke!
IF SOMEONE TELLS ME I NEED TO WATCH A TV SHOW OR FILM, IT PUTS ME OFF WATCHING IT. I don't know why, but I hate when people hype things up!
MY FAVOURITE FILMS ARE THE LION KING, MOULIN ROUGE AND GONE GIRL. I could watch them on repeat forever.
I WANTED TO START A BLOG YEARS AGO BUT I WAS ALWAYS TOO SCARED TO. But here we are now, at the ripe old age of 27, finally going for it!
Let me know some interesting facts about you in the comments!
