25 random facts about me

Ive seen a few bloggers post these facts recently and thought it was a good idea to help my readers get to know me better, so here it goes...

1. I'm obsessed with perfumes and have about 15 different bottles as I like to wear a different scent every day. Favourites include L.I.L.Y by Stella McCartney, Flowerbomb by Victor and Rolf, Alien by Thierry Mugler, Lemon tart by Jo Malone and Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture

2. I grew up as an only child but my dad went on to have 2 other children; my 14 year old brother and my 6 year old sister. All of our names begin with C. My parents are also only 17 years older than me

3. I'm 26 but look and mostly act younger. I get asked for I.D everywhere I go which is so annoying

4. I've never used sunbeds as I'm so scared of getting skin cancer and wrinkles and I have the type of skin that creates moles easily. I'm covered in them

5. I'm a natural worrier, quite a nervous person and suffer from anxiety aswell as various phobias but can't go into detail in case they're used against me! I often feel like I think differently to most people

6. I've always loved nail varnish and my poor grandad used to buy me around 2 a week after picking me up from school. I don't actually know how many I own nowadays

7. When rhythm was handed out I was clearly distracted and wasn't even in the queue. 86 year olds dance better than I do

8. I have funny feet that point inwards so I can't wear stilettos so I always go for wedges or chunky heels

9. I've always wanted a creative job that combines writing with fashion but couldn't even get enough work experience. I can only seem to get insurance jobs as I have so much experience in that industry

10. I've always wanted a black and silver Chanel 2.55 handbag but I'm scared to part with so much cash and what if it gets stolen? I've also heard there's a waiting list

11. I don't watch much TV, only particular programmes that I like which is what most people would call trash TV. e.g. The Only Way is Essex

12. I live in East London but not the trendy part. When I meet fellow bloggers I'm usually the most common

13. I've failed 3 driving tests mostly due to nerves. My theory test ran out 2 weeks after I failed my 3rd test so gave up. I hate driving because of my anxiety and impatience and haven't driven for nearly 4 years

14. I couldn't live without music. I like a lot of the chart stuff but also old Sokol garage, RnB, hip hop, reggae, rock, the list goes on. You can't beat a bit of cheese, especially if its from the 80s or 90s

15. I'm a really fussy eater and don't like sandwiches, mayonnaise or cold food (unless its meant to be cold like ice cream) so I struggle at buffets!

16. I've never touched drugs or cigarettes but love a nice cocktail. Junk food is also a vice

17. I have 2 wardrobes and plastic bags on top of one wardrobe full of clothes. I clearly have a problem

18. Between the ages of 16-21 I was in a crap relationship and I missed out on so much so I feel like I'll forever be making up for lost time

19. I live for the weekends and would eventually like a part time job so I can fit my writing around it

20. Before I'm 30 I want to go to Vegas, a champagne spray party, Coachella, Miami and Ibiza

21. I wonder if I'll ever be able to afford to move in with my boyfriend of 3 years and not be completely skint

22. I'm not very good at being an adult

23. My proudest achievements are my relationship, my friendships, my degree and climbing the O2

24. I get really down when it's cold, raining or it snows. I'm a bit of a sun worshipper and all of my holidays are in the sun

25. My hair is naturally wavy and looks a bit of a state unless I use a decent hair dryer to dry it


  1. Love this :) The bit about your grandad buying you nail varnish made me smile x

  2. Thanks. Ha, bless him. Don't know how I'll ever pay him back! x
