25 Facts About ME

Hey everyone :)

I've been seeing this tag go around on most blogs and I find it soo interesting to read about other bloggers. Especially when most of what they post are reviews or fashion posts. It makes it much more personal :)

Let's get started then!

1) My heart is on my right-hand side
This is probably the first thing I'd like to tell you guys, because it's one thing that actually makes me unique. Yep, I was born with my heart on the right hand side, and all my organs are in the mirror reverse positions of everyone else. 
Apparently this affects like 1 in 32,000 people, but I've not met anyone else with it so far! :)

2) Growing up, I wasn't a mainstream music fan..
I was never a Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera or Beyonce fan, as I never paid attention to mainstream music. I grew up listening to Korn, Nirvana, Linkin Park, The Offspring, Limp Bizkit.. and when I say 'growing up', I mean I was around 4 or 5 at this stage. My two older brothers were responsible for my music taste haha, as whatever they listened to, I did. 
So during high school, the bands I was obsessed with were: Green Day, Blink 182, From First To Last, Sum 41, Alkaline Trio, Papa Roach... and many more. 
Even to this day, I still have my own kind of music taste and I generally listen to music I think sounds good regardless if it is popular or not.
I like artists like Pony Pony Run Run, Jaymay, Circ and Attack Attack! 

3) I believe star signs
First of all, I want to make this clear that I don't believe in horoscopes, that being said, I do believe the starsigns are able to tell you the characteristics of a person. Including their compatibility level with another person. 

4) Dinosaurs are awesome
When I was around like 7 years old, I was obsessed with Dinosaurs. As embarrassing as that may be, Dinosaurs are awesome and I wish they were still around to this day. It'd just be pretty cool... well.. as long as they didn't eat me or anything.

5) I'm obsessed with drawing eyes
I have no idea why, but they're the most expressive thing to draw and I have so many drawn along the sides of my university notes, and in my diary etc. 
Apparently people who always draw eyes are very reflective people, and something about them being very visual towards other people.

Human eyes and cat eyes :)

6) I have many Hello Kitty things!
I started collecting Hello Kitty items when I was around 14/15ish and it started off with jewellery, and then it moved on to different things..

Hello Kitty box that my mug came in, Hello Kitty lunchbox sadly I've not been able to use it much as I've put a few items in there that I had to pack away when I was tidying up my house! I shall use it again soon :)
Hello Kitty necklace! A Hello Kitty travel case with brushes inside, a Hello Kitty watch my sister bought me from Camden.
I have other items too, including a bracelet, t-shirt, eye shadow palettte :)

The t-shirt! :)

7) I used to be kinda fat, but now I stay the same size
No matter how much I eat, I generally stay the same weight! Which is really weird because when I was 13/14, I used to be a size 12 (UK size), and that was the biggest I've been. But a year later I ended up adapting to a more fast-paced lifestyle where I've had to walk or be on my feet more. I worked out loads on the treadmill too!
Now, I sometimes eat so much food and I'll gain a few pounds, but the next week I'll be my normal weight (9 stones).

8) But I do want to lose more weight and tone up
I'm definitely going to be going to the gym loads for the rest of the year and into my third year too!
I want to be totally toned and have really nice abs... I can do it :D

9) Journalism wasn't my first choice
I was meant to study Fine Art at university, hence my old YouTube videos and my drawings on Facebook. However I never got accepted anywhere, and I had to take a gap year and re-apply, but in another area. Journalism. I suppose that Journalism can take me places where I'd like to go, but I can't see myself writing for a newspaper. I'd love to travel to new destinations
 So, Journalism is just a part of my plan... I have a master plan of something I want to do ;D

10) I've dyed my hair more times than I can count
Red, Pinkish, purple, blondey, light brown, dark brown, ultra violet! 
I've been dying my hair over the past 7 or 8 years, and I've done it all myself too, I've never been afraid if things go wrong or anything :)

11) There are 3 movies I can NEVER get tired of
And they are: She's The Man, A Cinderella Story and Transformers.
She's The Man is so hilarious and I first watched it with my sister, and I've watched it enough times to recite all of the lines. 
A Cinderella Story is so funny! Hilary Duff was one of my fave actresses growing up, and I think I liked this movie more because she is in it! And not to mention, Jennifer Coolidge is in there and she's so hilarious too!
Then Transformers... no wait. It needs it's on paragraph.
I love the quote "Never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game"

12) Transfomers. Can I have one?
I love this movie. It was created so well, and the whole storyline is amazing! I've seen all three, and well, the first and second have to be my favourites as they're more memorable. And well... Megan Fox is in them and I prefer her then Rosie Huntington Whiteley. Like, Megan Fox just really kicks ass.

13) I am a clothes and makeup hoarder
Well, it's not as bad as you see on TV. But I just seriously have so much makeup and clothes that I sometimes forget I even had them in the first place! It's unbelievable!
However, I only have like 4 pairs of shoes... and this really needs to change!

14) I can get ready in 10 minutes
I wake up around 6:35am (if I'm feeling really lazy to not wake up earlier) and I take 10 minutes to wash up, brush my teeth, put on clothes and brush through my hair. The other 15 minutes I pack up my bags, and make a quick cup of coffee and then be out of the house for 7!
I end up doing my makeup on the train or later on in the day :)

This is how I look when I don't really do my makeup - only a bit of foundation, mascara, fill in my brows and lipbalm :)
When I have more time, I end up applying the concealer, bronzer, eyeliner and etc! Haha!

15) I am a quiet one
It's a pain really, as I'm not as talkative as I'd like to be. Although I do really want to change that and become a lot more confident and blab on and on.

16) Snakebites
For a couple of years I wanted snake bites so badly. Two lip piercings on both sides of the bottom lip. I still think it looks cool, but I don't really think it's my thing anymore. 

17) I don't like wearing glasses
Most people at University haven't seen me with glasses, as I personally didn't want them to see me wearing them haha. It's a shame though, because my glasses are quite expensive and I should wear them out more often. I'm more comfortable wearing lenses :)

18) I'm a bit of a crazy nail person
I'll explain! I love the fact that I can grow my nails really long, and sometimes I grow them a bit too long and people around me are like, "Woah!! How do you even manage to type?!" and well, it's really easy to type with long nails haha. 

Okay, actually, looking at the photo it does look a bit creep haha! I think that is the longest my nails have ever been, and it took me several months to grow my nails out that long.
But I don't think I'll keep them that long again!!

19) I tend to wear the same clothes
If you see me regularly in person, you will know that I tend to wear the same jumpers over and over. No! Not day after day. But I wear the pieces of clothes compared to other items of clothing I've got in my wardrobe. I really love comfortable clothing and I only have a few that are like that.

20) I'm a bit of a gamer
I'm not saying that I'm an avid gamer when it comes to like Call of Duty.. I've played it once or twice and it's not bad. However, I definitely CAN'T say no to playing Unreal Tournament.
 Basically it's similar to Call of Duty, and you have to shoot people. Except it's a bit more gory-er and sadistic (I think). In the game, you can choose what type of match you want to play, like a Team Tag, Last Man Standing, Capture the Flag, Assault... all of which are cool. And you get all these guns and you just basically have to shoot the other players... Oh, this is starting to sound a little creepy, but it's a really good game! 

21) I have three piercings
I've had my ears pierced on both sides ever since I was a baby, and then I got my tragus done when I was around 14/15 :) it was a spur of the moment thing and I asked my mum and she agreed!

22) I want to travel the world
I mentioned this earlier but I really would love to travel the world 
Exotic places, hot places, different places, cultural places etc!
I want to visit America soon... Canada and New York!

23) I take way too many photos of myself
It's not that I'm really vain.. or is it?
Nooo nooo! Haha! Since becoming more of a beauty blogger where I take more photos of my makeup and everyday looks, and things that I do on a day to day basis, I have a lot of photos of myself! I have around 40GB worth of photos that I've taken on my DSLR (and I got my DSLR in November!) haha!

24) Chocolate is my weakness
I'm such a chooclate addict, it's untrue! I've been eating less chocolate than I used to though, and I try to incorporate fruit and nuts into the chocolate now as it's better than none at all haha.

25) My favourite colour is red
It's been my favourite colour for absolutely ages! I do like the colour pink, but I do prefer red! A deep red :)
