50 Things you might not know about me

So, I thought it was about time I shared a few things about me on this lovely blog of mine! So, if you want to know more about me pull up a comfy chair and grab a drink!

  1. I am a Bristol girl born and bred – I don’t have a strong accent though I am happy to say!
  2. I am a natural ginger although my hair colour has faded over the year so is now dyed.
  3. I used to hate my freckles growing up, but now I love them. One of my favourite things about myself.
  4. Twitter is one of my favourite social media platforms – I have met so many awesome people through it and can’t wait to meet more throughout 2018!
  5. I do love sharing my photography on Instagram though, it’s a creative outlet that I really enjoy. I’m no good at any other art form so the fact I am ok with a camera makes me smile.
  6. My dream holiday destinations are New Zealand and South Africa.
  7. I am incredibly annoyed by noise – tapping pens, incessant dog barking, people playing their music without headphones on the bus, loud chewing! It all gives me incredible stress.
  8. I have been working on a gratitude journal for the past few weeks and although I couldn’t see the benefits before I started, I can tell you it’s definitely helping me to change my life and my outlook.
  9. I am a Christian and am lucky to be part of an amazing church called NLC – I’ve got an incredible church family and have definitely been pretty blessed in that regard.
  10. I am a huge book geek and love escaping into a book whenever I get the chance.
  11. I struggle to take a compliment, it’s something that has annoyed a fair few people over the years. But I am working on changing that.
  12. ย I am possibly the worlds biggest over thinker – feel free to try to challenge me I doubt you’ll win ๐Ÿ˜‰ It makes my life incredibly difficult for the most part as I can blow even the simplest things out of proportion.
  13. I enjoy a random Netflix binge day – just copious amounts of beverages and some good snacks and the laptop in the comfort of home.
  14. Colouring books are something that has definitely helped me on my journey to be more mindful. It’s yet another thing I scoffed at when it was mentioned to me, but that I have embraced and come to love it.
  15. I love the sea, whether I am in it, on it or just watching it I feel relaxed and at home.
  16. If you can make me a good cuppa we will probably get on well – I adore a good cup of tea.
  17. Spring and Autumn are my two favourite seasons. I am a fan of an average temperature and Summer is generally too hot and Winter is normally not just too cold but also too wet!! Where Autumn holds the key to beautiful colour changing scenery and spring gives me wonderful flowers to photograph and make me smile,
  18. I have been blessed by the fact that friends of mine have recently had a gorgeous little boy Jesse, I get to spend a little bit of time with him for cuddles at least once a week and he brightens my world. He is so adored by everyone, it’s lovely to see.
  19. I have realised how much my true friends mean to me, as I’ve got older I have realised that it’s not always the ones who have known you the longest but the ones who have said they’d been there for you and proved it that mean ย the most.
  20. Two summers ago I remember laughing at James when he told me he was going to New Wine. I called it God camp and couldn’t understand why you’d want to go and sleep in a tent and listen to people preach for a week. But last year I went as part of our church and it changed my life. I learnt so much about myself and my faith and I can’t wait to get back there again this August.
  21. I would love to write a book, but something keeps holding me back. I now have an idea, so there should be no reason for me not to go with it.
  22. In 2018 my goal is to lose 6 stone. I have no idea if I will make it to that target but I know I will try and I refuse to give up this time.
  23. Until last year I hadn’t seen a single Star Wars movie but now I love them.
  24. I am the worst person at playing board/card games, if I am bad at something my instant reaction is ‘this is crap, I don’t want to play anymore’.
  25. Beautiful candles make me smile. As long as they smell like fruit or vanilla!
  26. The Harry Potter book series are still some of my favourite books of all time.
  27. I have the worlds fluffiest dressing gown and I love it. Hood and everything!
  28. My favourite relaxation is a spa day/weekend. Not something you can do every day but definitely a winner if things have been a bit tough/busy.
  29. I care too much. It means I get hurt more than I should, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
  30. I love hugs, but not if I’m trying not to cry. If you notice I am holding back the tears – never hug me! It will release all the tears and no-one wants that to happen.
  31. I studied performing arts at college yet I am still terrified of public speaking.
  32. I work really hard to find the perfect gift for an occasion. I don’t believe in doing half a job on buying someone a gift – make it special and something they will love otherwise what’s the point?!
  33. I love an accent on a guy, Welsh, Irish, Scottish ย and Yorkshire are some of my favourites.
  34. I love a pub quiz, a great excuse to get the old brain working.
  35. I am a gin fan, although mostly with ginger as I am not a fan of tonic! 6 o’clock is easily my favourite, it’s a local one and if you’ve not had chance to try it and you’re a big gin fan – get on it it’s wonderful!
  36. I’m a huge fan of dogs, I’m definitely the person in street who wants to pet all the doggos!
  37. Last year I discovered I was a fan of whiskey, with Laphroaig being a favourite.
  38. One of my goals for 2018 was to get outside more, so as part of that I joined National Trust to encourage me to visit new places. Look out for some photo heavy posts from those trips ๐Ÿ™‚
  39. I genuinely believe I might have a quote for all seasons and situations. I am a quote addict – as anyone who follows my Pinterest will know.
  40. Tulips and Sunflowers are my absolute favourite flowers! You know in case anyone ever wants to send me any!
  41. I love to swim. It’s one of my favourite ways to clear my mind, and definitely something I will be doing more of in 2018.
  42. Country music has a huge place in my heart, it always seems to have a lyric that speaks to me no matter the situation.
  43. When I was a kid I wanted to be a mermaid – not sure that’s changed much haha!
  44. I love how I look in red lipstick, but I don’t wear it much these days.
  45. I cry far too often!
  46. My favourite colour is Teal.
  47. I love scarves, but they don’t really suit me which makes me sad.
  48. I wear a necklace with a mermaid/whale tail on it, it reminds me of some fantastic memories I’ve had and how water is the connection to calm for me.
  49. If I was an animal I’d be a dolphin. Great in the water, sociable and pretty smart ๐Ÿ˜‰
  50. I have an over reliance on my phone, and it’s a habit I am trying to curb!
