30 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

lorna-burford-hair-raindrops-of-sapphire-lornaraindrops

I thought it might be fun to state 30 things and facts about me that you wouldn’t know! I have listed them below and I think it might give you a bit more of an insight as to what I’m like, a long with my other Q&A’s that I have done (which you can read here). I would love to know more facts about some of my regular readers though if you want to leave some in the comments!

1 – I used to be a tom boy for the most part of my childhood.

2 – I tend to get on better with guys more than girls. Tends to be less drama lol.

3 – June will be the first time I’ve ever travelled out of the country (I will let you know about this trip soon).

4 – I secretly adore the Welsh accent!

5 – I bite my nails a lot – which is such a bad habit.

6 – I used to be obsessed and infatuated with Britney Spears, The Spice Girls and Boyzone in my childhood.

7 – My middle name is Margaret, named after my Irish nan I never got to meet unfortunately, but apparently I am a lot like her πŸ™‚

8 – I’m a mix of half English, quarter Irish and quarter Welsh.

9 – I used to live in platform trainers when I was younger, even when I was a tomboy.

10 – I have a really bad allergy to cornflour.

11 – I like to think my style is a lot like Jessica Alba’s and Hilary Duff’s.

12 – I get told I look like Taylor Swift nearly every single week lol, which I don’t really mind πŸ˜€

13 – The smell of men’s strong deodorant/aftershave makes me nauseous.

14 – I have a very strong interest in the medical profession and love surgical shows, especially the ones with Dr. Jessen.

15 – I’m fascinated by history, especially the Egyptians and Romans!

16 – I’ve dyed my hair almost every colour imaginable in the past, but I prefer to keep it to my natural blonde now.

17 – I used to have my hair about 2 inches long (boy/pixie cut) during my tom boy phase.

18 – I generally tend to care for animals more than I do humans, it’s more like an instinct as all safety for myself goes out the window if I need to help an animal, I’ve almost been run over by a truck twice. Yikes.

19 – I hate swimming for two reasons – I almost drowned 3 times as a child and the smell of chlorine makes me ill.

20 – I used to work in a flower shop when I was 14.

21 – Art was my favourite subject at school, but I don’t get time to paint or draw anymore.

22 – I’m really OTT with planning and organizing when it comes to trips.

23 – I’ve been through a lot of illnesses throughout my life and still am, but I choose not to display any of this on my blog as I am just a regular 24 year old girl πŸ™‚

24 – I try to keep positive about everything now which is why I generally like peace and quiet (I’m not a party person) to keep my brain calm, as I’ve been through so much emotional distress over the years it’s important for me to relax.

25 – If I was rich (which is not even close lol) and could fly (again, not happening) I would love to go on an travelling adventure!

26 – I follow rules to the absolute maximum as I can’t cope knowing I might have done something wrong.

27 – I can’t be around someone who smokes, the smell is absolutely awful.

28 – Cats always seem to love me, even outside or temperamental ones, they always come up to me. I’m sure I was a cat in a previous life! I couldn’t not be around cats πŸ™‚

29 – I love to sing and record songs/covers and I used to play guitar.

30 – I passed my driving test on the first go after only 20 lessons, but I don’t drive anymore.

    Hey gorgeous,

    I loved reading this post and feel we have a lot in common. However, I seem to repel cats which is disappointing because they’re my favorite animal!! πŸ™ haha.

    Your blog is so lovely and full of inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

    Its so interesting to know that you used to play guitar and paint (I play the piano but also want to learn guitar; I started teaching myself several months ago but I’m finding it so difficult.) and also for some reason that you’ve worked in a flower shop – I don’t know why I find that fascinating lol. And not that I have anything against Taylor Swift, but I think you’re a lot nicer.

      Thanks Sophie! That’s really kind! Yeah I quite liked guitar, I wasn’t amazing at it, but I used to write my own songs too!

    ah I used to be the biggest tom boy too!! It’s great getting to know you a little bit more! I’m planning on doing a similar post soon so don’t be surprised if you read some similar stats (since I also lived in platforms for the majority of my teens haha).

    Hope you’re great!

      Oh cool πŸ™‚ I don’t honestly think age matters, if the trend suits you and you look good, that’s what counts πŸ™‚

  13. October 2, 2013 / 12:31 am

    great to learn more about you. Good for you that you take care of yourself by having peace and quiet
