Turning 27

facts about me

This weekend has absolutely flown by. It has been full of so much fun that time has just whizzed past. Friday was my birthday and I spent the day shopping, but didn’t actually buy anything, which is a rare occurrence for me! Saturday I was mesmerised by the Royal Wedding and Sunday I spent at the Zoo. It made a nice change to the weekends where I usually do nothing.

To celebrate entering a new year of my life, I thought I would share 27 little facts with you..

1 – When I was 6, Spiceworld the movie came out and I begged my brother to let me go and see it with him. He wouldn’t let me go and came back telling me how good it was for ages. Scarred for life! I have since seen it and LOL why was I so jealous?!

2 – I could eat McDonalds breakfast all day long. I just wish they served them all day. Sausage McMuffin all the way!

3 – I still can’t watch the Lion King without crying when Mufasa dies. In fact I start to cry when I know it is coming up.

4 – I cannot stand icing on birthday cake. Unless it is buttercream – that’s a whole different ball game.

5 – I hate baby dolls. Especially dolls with teeth, that’s some horror movie stuff right there.

6 – I love the theatre. Give me a musical and I am there! You can guarantee that I will always leave wishing I could dance or sing.

7 – My biscuit of choice will always be a Bourbon. I bloody love those things.

8 – I am the most indecisive person ever when buying something. I have to go to 20 other shops in-between, to just decide I am going to buy the thing I saw in the first shop anyway.

9 – I used to always have a fringe when I was younger and absolutely hated it. I have naturally curly hair and it curled all over the place and I ended up looking like a boy with curtains.

10 – Friday is my favourite day of the week. I think this comes from spending Friday evenings with my Nan and Grandad after school.

11 – I have always wanted to go shopping in New York, but think I need to win the lottery first for that one.

12 – I drink tea all day long. I only really have coffee once in a while, that’s when everyone knows its been a hard day!

13 – I can’t walk in high heels. To be fair, I can’t really walk in flats either, but anything high is a nightmare.

14 – I sing to the cat all the time. Her favourite rendition of mine is ‘The Writings On The Wall’ by Sam Smith.

27 facts

15 – I really need to watch more films. Unless it’s Disney, I probably haven’t seen it.

16 – Even though I loved The Lord of the Rings films, I have never seen The Hobbit.

17 – I have never tried a Pumpkin Spiced Latte.

18 – I really need to create some sort of skincare routine. I am rubbish at remembering to moisturise.

19 – I only eat prawns if they are part of a prawn salad. I just can’t picture them with anything else.

20 – I really want more tattoos. I would love a sleeve, but I think my mum might kill me.

21 – I cannot stand spicy food. Perinaise is literally the spiciest I can go, before my eyes start to stream.

22 – I have never watched Stranger Things.

23 – I talk about food pretty much 99% of the time. As you can probably tell by quite a lot of these facts.

24 – I always forget to carry cash on me.

25 – When I was at first school, I won a colouring competition and got to tour the local police station. When they asked if I wanted to sit on one of the police horses, I burst into tears and wouldn’t stop crying for the rest of the trip. Fun times aha!

26 – I love flowers. Roses are my absolute favourites.

27 – I really don’t like the smell of Lavender.

Well I hope you enjoyed my 27 little facts, it took me ages to think of them all! Let me know some facts about you below! ♥

    Happy very belated birthday! hehehe.

    I think you should treat yourself to a pumpkin spice latte and binge watch Stranger Things haha.

    I can’t walk in heels either! My shoes consist solely (haha solely) of trainers, a pair of flip flops and 2 pairs of sandals. ^_^

    I haven’t watched Stranger Things either. I have been shopping in NY though, it was pretty fun, but I mostly stuck to outlet stores so I didn’t spend too much money 😀 xx
