The Girl Behind The Blog

During a twitter chat last week I asked people what posts they like reading the most, there were lots of different answers - hauls, reviews, favourites, but one that popped up ALOT was "personal" posts and "life" posts.
 So I thought why not give you guys a little bit more of a personal post today and let you get to know me a little bit more.... so here it goes........ (you may or may not know these little snippets about me...)
- I was going to be called Charlotte or Emma - but Mum saw Kirstie Alley's name come up on TV and changed her mind!

- I have lived on the Isle Of Wight all of my life and I love it here, I feel so lucky to have grown up here.

- Popcorn with chocolate m&m's is probably my favourite snack ever.

- I have a musical obsession and have done ever since I was little. I listen to Defying Gravity at least once a day.

- The first YouTubers I started watching were Shaycarl/The Shaytards, Blair Fowler & Elle Fowler.... and I still watch them now.

- I have a seriously sensitive nose.

- I am 25. I get IDed....alot, people think I'm still a teenager.

- I have dental implants - it's the only operation I've ever had.

- I didn't like pizza until I was in high school.

- Me & my friends have a mayo addiction. It's actually laughable how much we can get through.

- Me & my boyfriend technically met through Bebo..... we've been together 8 years.

- I am a major bargain hunter, I'm straight to the sale section when shopping online.... don't judge me!

- Going to the cinema is one of my favourite things to do.

- I once met John Clease, he was very nice.

- I always have the urge to change my hair, I've dyed it so many times over the past 12 years..... and now I'm considered chopping it off... again!

- The number one thing on my bucket list is too own a French Bulldog.

- I think I have more girl crushes than guy crushes!

- I've never had a driving lesson.

- My one regret in life is going to LA Ink but not getting a tattoo.

-  I have a baby name list.... My top 3 for a girl are : Violet, Mollie & Aria.

- I have a teddy I've had since I was born, he's called Yellow Dog..... he is a yellow dog. (He's yellow because my parents didn't know if I was a boy or a girl!)

- I started drinking green tea to try and be a bit healthier about 4 years ago and haven't stopped since -  I LOVE the stuff!

- Whatsapp group messages make me life complete, so.much.hilarious.banter.

- Me & my best friends have been best friends since we were 13. They are the greatest people in the world and make me laugh every since day. 

- Rock Challenge was the best thing about High School. (We were awesome)

- I have a sugar addiction.

- I am the worst yo-yo dieter - I don't think I've ever been happy with my body.

- I got a diamond ring for my 21st birthday and the only times I've taken it off were when I was at Typhoon Lagoon & Blizzard Beach.

- I watched Felicity Huffman & Willam H Macy get their stars on the walk of fame.

- I used to have a magazine addiction. I literally bought about 6 a week and HAD too. I had piles and piles of More! magazine under my bed.

- I am the messiest person around - it's embarrassing. 

- My dream holiday destination is Hawaii.

- Sometimes I regret my blog name and other days I'm not bothered.

- I randomly bought Taylor Swift's album back in 2009 and became utterly obsessed and have been the biggest fan ever since.

- I still think 'Bridesmaids' is one of the funniest movie's ever made.

- I wish everyday that I was at Disneyworld.

- Harry Potter makes me SO happy.

- I am still terrified of The Witches..... it has also given me a fear of baddies who wear wigs - very strange I know.

- I'm serious when I say I will pluck up the courage to get a tattoo this year.

- My parents are the best.

- When I was younger my favourite thing to do was make collages and I still LOVE it now. 

- 90% of what I drink is water and I only ever drink fizzy when I'm drinking alcohol. (which isn't very often!)

-  Starting this blog was the best decision I ever made.

I really hope this hasn't bored the hell out of you guys!
