HELLO MY LOVELIES!
Today I wanted to do something a little bit different to help you all get to know me a bit better! So I decided that, even though I talk about me A LOT on this blog (and I really do, don’t I? #sorrynotsorry), I’ve never actually done a ‘get to know me’ post.
You know, the kind where you get to discover my little quirks and habits and hear my favourite drunk stories (like about that time I got carried home after throwing up and getting kicked out of the club… fun times!)
I hope you learn a little something about me that you didn’t know before!
A is for Anxiety
This is something I suffer with but hate talking to people about. It’s not nearly as bad as it used to be and I have learnt a variety of ways that help me personally try to overcome it. However, it still does get the better of me sometimes and I still have the occasional panic attack.
B is for Best Friends
I am a very lucky girl to have a handful of really gorgeous and lovely friends. I love them very much.
C is for Cake
Too predictable? I really do like cake though.
D is for Devanshi
E is for Email
I love my email now that I blog! With all my collabs that I have planned, I never know quite what will pop up in my inbox, and my inbox usually leaves me smiling these days!
F is for Food
Food is one of my favourite things in the world. Cheese, chocolate, pizza… pretty much anything that isn’t exactly good for me I love. I think food and my emotions are very much linked, which I need to fight against a bit sometimes but ah well. Now, who wants a burger?
G is for Georgie
Georgie is my partner’s family’s Dalmatian that makes my sleepovers at his complete! He’s pretty much the most loving and gorgeous dog I’ve ever had the privilege of loving!
H is for Home
My favourite place to be – home is wherever Bradley is!
I is for Italy
I’ve wanted to go to Italy for as long as I can remember, and spontaneously me and Brad booked a trip to Venice last December and it was beautiful! We even went on a gondola through the canals of Venice! There’s just something about the whole country that fascinates me! Admittedly, there’s the whole I LOVE PIZZA AND PASTA angle… But it’s so much more than just a love of carbs and cheese. There is still so much of Italy that I’d love to explore, I want to see the incredible works of art in Florence, I want to see the inside of the Colosseum, I want to try wine in a vineyard and (yes OK!) eat proper home-cooked Italian pasta! I want to see the countryside of Sienna, walk the stone-cobbled streets of Verona!
MAJOR TRAVEL LUST.
J is for Job
I love my job as a teaching assistant! Never in a million years did I think that this would be the path that I take in my career, but it is one that I’m incredibly glad I took!
K is for Kind
As the saying goes “If you haven’t got anything kind to say then don’t say anything at all”. I have spent enough of my time as a child, teen and early adult being the brunt of bullying and very unkind behaviour. You would expect this to have resulted in me being unkind but thankfully this is not the case. Unfortunately though I am often too kind for my own good and end up being walked all over like a giant door mat.
L is for Lotus Flower
My first tattoo I ever got was in November 2016 and it was of a lotus flower, I wrote about it here!
‘As a lotus is able to emerge from Muddy Waters un-spoilt and pure, it is considered to represent a wise and spiritually enlightened quality in a person; it is representative of somebody who carries out their tasks with little concern for any reward.’
M is for Mum
So many words to describe my mum; strong would be an understatement! I think warrior would suit her so much better!
N is for Northern Lights
I’m completely and utterly fascinated by the Northern Lights. I’ve always felt an interest in them! Again: one for the Bucket List!
O is for Over Thinking
I never used to think I was but I am a bit of a worrier. I always play situations over and over in my head, especially if I wasn’t happy with the way they played out. Sometimes I bite my tongue when I want to say something and I get scared to ask questions for fear of looking silly. You’d think I’d have grown out of this by now but I’m so worried about upsetting other people sometimes that I won’t say what I’m thinking.
P is for People
I love being with the people who I love and that I can be myself around. When I’m feeling good I love being around people but I do quite often need some alone time afterwards to recharge. The stereotypical signs of an introvert, right there.
Q is for Quiet
I don’t think people realise that I am naturally quite a quiet person and that I am pretty shy. Once I’m comfortable you can’t shut me up but prior to that it’s like getting blood out of a stone.
R is for Remember
My memory is awful at times and so I plan everything in my iPhone on the notes app. This ranges from my day-to-day plans, blog post ideas and things I need to buy in town, nothing weird there, right?
S is for Sleep
I am brilliant at falling asleep. If I’m tired I can doze off pretty much anywhere. Staying asleep is a whole other matter though. I wake up multiple times in the night and am end up only getting a couple of hours of sleep some nights. BUT there are also times where I can sleep for hours and hours, I think I’ve taken, at the most, 4 naps a day, so I calculated it and it turned out that I was asleep for 17/24 hours of the day. No shame.
T is for Taurus
It is scary how spot on my zodiac sign it: I wrote about it here!
U is for University
I spent 2 years at De Montfort University in Leicester, and I did two different courses, Journalism in 2016/2017 and Education Studies in 2017/2018. However, it turned out that university wasn’t for me and now I’m incredibly happy working in a school!
V is for Vlogging
Over the years I have created videos to record my memories. These ended up being shared online and somehow progressed into me ‘vlogging’. I’m not a massive YouTube freak but I do like to dabble with iMovie now and then – most of my videos are from holidays and concerts, check them out here!
W is for Wreake Valley Academy
Wreake Valley is the name of my secondary school! I spent 5 years here and although I wouldn’t have thought it at the time, I incredibly miss being there and not having to give a care in the world about what the future holds!
X is for X-Rays
I have had so many X-rays that I can barely keep count.
CONTEXT: I have 3 brothers they just don’t understand how fragile I am, and that IT’S MY TURN TO WATCH TV.
Y is for YouTube
Every now and them I get lost on YouTube. I start looking for a tutorial for something or a music video and fall down a hole and end up watching videos about things I didn’t even know I was interested in. Then all of a sudden three hours have disappeared and I can’t remember what I started with in the first place.
Z is for Zero
Zero-makeup! This is happening a lot more and I’m loving it!
So there we have it. Probably more than you’ve ever wanted to know about me!
