50 Facts About Me!


I’ve been blogging on here for almost 2 years now, and apart from rambling about personal things like knickers, ingrown hairs and acne, I haven’t given too much away about me, myself and I. Personally, I’m not all about postingΒ selfies and slapping my mush all over the world-wide web for every Tom, Dick and Harry to have a gawk at, nor do I like the idea of over sharing about my personal life. But I’ve seen this 50 Facts About Me tag pop up on a few blogs lately, and I thought it might be nice to give you a few little facts about the girl behind the blog.

  1. I live in Dublin, Ireland. I love where I live and will never move. I’m more of a city girl, the countryside and I don’t get on too well.
  2. I have a little dog called Bella. She is a miniature Yorkie, she is 3 years old. She is teeny tiny and she is the centre of my universe. She’s my little fur baby.
  3. I like to dress my dog in little jumpers and coats in the winter. And the occasional dress or costume the rest of the year…. Yup, I’m crazy.
  4. I live with my boyfriend of 5 years, approximately 5 minutes down the road from my family home, where my parents and 2 younger sisters live. I go home every single day, my family are a huge part of my life.
  5. I have brown eyes and brown hair.
  6. I drive a Nissan Note. I like it, I don’t love it, but I had to buy it after I wrote off my Toyota Yaris last year.
  7. Speaking of car crashes, I’ve been in 3 crashes in the past 2 years. But before you think I’m the worst driver in the world, I was only driving once (that time the car in front jammed on for some unknown reason, and when I hit the brakes my car skidded on the wet road and smashed into a motorway barrier) the other 2 times I was passenger in a minibus in my job. So as a result of all these crashes I am extremely nervous when travelling by car or bus!
  8. Speaking of fears, I’m not a very good flyer. But I won’t let fear of flying stop me from travelling. I have Valium and alcohol to help me out πŸ˜‰
  9. My dream is to visit every Disney theme park in the world. So far it’s 3 down, 3 to go.
  10. My favourite animal is the Giant Panda. I love to watch Panda documentaries, and read about them. One of my highlights was visiting the Panda exhibit in Edinburgh Zoo where I swear to god, Tian Tian the panda waved at me. No joke.
  11. My favourite drink is tea. On average I’ll have 6 cups a day.
  12. I always have at least one candle lighting when I’m at home.
  13. My favourite Harry Potter book is The Goblet Of Fire.
  14. Grease is my favourite film, I could watch it over and over again.
  15. I don’t like foods that float. For example, stew, casseroles, minestrone soups or anything where bits of food are floating in liquid make me feel ill.
  16. On the same note, onions and mushrooms also freak me out.
  17. I love McDonalds alot. I probably eat it once a week, which I know isn’t healthy but it makes me happy.
  18. I am obsessed with copper homeware items. If it’s copper, I need it in my house.
  19. I am a Dublin GAA Football season ticket holder. I went to my first gaelic football match at the age of 15 with my uncle, and have been hooked ever since. I love nothing more than going to Croke Park to cheer on the boys in blue.
  20. I buy Stellar magazine every month, and have a subscription to US beauty magazine Allure.
  21. Angelina Jolie wrecks my head, I can’t stand her.
  22. My favourite social networks are Instagram & Snapchat.
  23. I love cereal. My favourites are Cornflakes, Rice Krispies, Cheerios or Frosties.
  24. Penneys is my favourite shop, I visit it at least once a week, and usually buy a few bits every month.
  25. My favourite sandwich is chicken & stuffing on white bread.
  26. I once spent €50 on a Winnie The Pooh teddy because it had a hat and little jacket on it.
  27. I have a deep deep love for Mozzarella sticks. Sadly, not enough places in Ireland serve this delicacy, so whenever I visit The States I try to eat as much deep-fried cheese as possible.
  28. I once broke my nose while skiing, and now hate the thoughts of skiing, surfing or any form of activity break.
  29. Speaking of strenuous activity, I climbed the fifth highest waterfall in the world when in Yosemite National Park, California. It was so difficult, and I hated every minute, particularly when I was bitten by a bug as I was climbing wet steps behind a waterfall. I managed to complete the hike, but did not enjoy one bit of it, and do not have fond memories of Yosemite.
  30. I do not like exercise. I can tolerate swimming, or a walk, but that’s about it. I have never once experienced these so-called ‘endorphins’ that people say they get from exercise.
  31. My GHD is one of my most prized possessions.
  32. I have an honours degree in Social Care, from Dublin Institute of Technology.
  33. As I work in healthcare, I am well used to dealing with gross things such as bodily fluids. I sometimes forget that not everyone is as used to these things as I am, and often have a habit of talking about poo or snot at the dinner table, much to everyone else’s dismay.
  34. Although I’m used to gross things, as a patient in hospital earlier this year, I had my first experience using a bedpan. It was one of the most traumatising moments of my life, and although I can laugh about it now, it was definitely my lowest point of 2016.
  35. I am petrified of birds. I will often cross the road to avoid a pigeon.
  36. David Beckham is my ultimate celebrity crush.
  37. The Simpsons is my favourite TV show. I say quotes from the show most days.
  38. I love quizzes.
  39. I let my dog sleep in my bed with me.
  40. I always sit with a blanket wrapped around me, winter or summer.
  41. My favourite number is 8.
  42. I haven’t missed an episode of Home & Away in years.
  43. I hate getting my hair cut. Going to the hairdressers stresses me out, so I only go about once a year.
  44. My favourite beauty brand is Soap & Glory.
  45. I rarely wear nail polish, but when I do it always chips off quickly, no matter what base coat or top coat I apply.
  46. I hate grocery shopping so much that I beg my boyfriend to do it for me.
  47. My favourite cocktail is a long island ice tea.
  48. I watch Mary Poppins at least once a fortnight.
  49. I have 2 Michael Kors handbags. One which I love, and one which I kind of regret buying.
  50. I have never tasted coffee.
