Anyhoo, the idea is to write 50 facts about yourself. Seems simple, but according to the others that have done this, it’s surprisingly hard. Also, I’m going to do a little bit obscure ones that maybe you didn’t know.
- I don’t have a middle name
- I wanted to have my middle name as Isabelle, but it rhymes with my last name and would’ve ended in disasterious nicknames.
- I have blue eyes.
- I have three scars on my tummy, two on my face and one on my leg from scratching chicken pox when I was little
- Regarding these chicken pox a doctor, when I was little, thought they were cigarette burns (awkward)
- I really like raw spring onion with cheese
- On the topic of food I eat a lot of hummus/houmus/humus
- Oh, I’m vegetarian
- I tried being vegan for a week but missed chocolate, and cheese too much
- I’m 5″2 (An inch taller than my mother)
- I love Paris….I’ve never been, but I feel drawn to France in general
- No. 11 was a lie, I have been to Paris, but I don’t count it (It was Disney Land) however I have been to Ardeche on a school trip. So I have experienced a part of France.
- I eat a lot of raw food, like vegetables and fruit
- In the past five years I’ve owned seven pairs of Converse
- I like Converse All Stars (you don’t say)
- Book blogging is my hobby, however I left school to be self employed full time
- I’m a singer/songwriter musician (in real life)
- I play ukulele
- I don’t really like to mix these two lives that much (because I feel like I’m boasting and big headed…even now, I feels bad)
- I’ve just finished my debut album and am extremely excited to take over the world with it
- I can be slightly vain
- Vain, in a jokey way
- Although some take it seriously and I feel bad
- I once flooded my bedroom by putting my pyjamas in the sink and leaving the tap on
- It was an accident and I was three (honest)
- Dad had just re-plastered the ceiling below my bedroom when I flooded it (aren’t I an angel)
- My favourite colour is red
- Red is the colour of my hair at the moment (the dye was called ‘Dark Cherry’ but it’s a subtle, more natural red)
- My feet look better in general when I’ve painted my toenails.
- When I was little, I thought my knees where ugly until I realised knees aren’t meant to be pretty.
- I have six freckles on my hands (including four on my fingers)
- I have never, ever broken a bone in my body
- I drink a lot of tea.
- The tea I drink must be Yorkshire Tea or it tastes funny (to me)
- I also really, really like Earl Grey and Lady Grey, although Lady is my favourite
- I’m contemplating the idea of getting my nose pierced (not now, in a few years…maybe never)
- I adore Terry’s Chocolate Oranges
- For Easter my family has an easter tree. Which is basically a pot with some large twigs out the garden decorated with little eggs, bunnies and ducks.
- I take my tea weak with milk and one sugar (although trying to cut down on sugar)
- I make my own blend (mixing different brands and ingredients) of hot chocolate and it’s lush (if I say so myself)
- I like feel good books, but also a bit of adventure and at the moment really loving contemporary, coming of age stuff
- I used to want to grow up to become an author and still sometimes write small little parts of random books I have in my head
- I have a book/film idea in my head at this very moment called Parallel Lines
- I hate it when my nails get longer than 2mm *pet peeve*
- I studied piano and oboe up to grade 3 and kind of wish I’d carried on (with piano) :/
- I suffer from major wanderlust, when I say suffer, I mean suffer. I want to travel very much XD
- Music plays a big part of when I’m reading and different music can make me more emotional over the text
- I like hugs and hugging people 😀
- I absolutely adore massive woolly jumpers and thick socks *mmmm*
- The beach is my favourite place to be
Wow. So 50 eh? That took me a long time. Hope you like them and know me a little better!
