Fifty Facts About Me! :)

This is a somewhat unusual blog post for me to do, but I feel that there's a lot of people who have started reading this blog over the past few months (hello!) that I've met through Bloglovin/twitter's #lbloggers hashtag and people that I know from elsewhere on the internet that haven't ever met me in real life and so I thought it would be a good idea to do a bit of an 'introduction' post to build up a sort of a picture of my (slightly strange) character!! I actually hate talking about myself and I am a super shy/quiet person buuuut I'm thinking it would be kind of cool if I did something like this once a year (even if that'd bore you guys to death!) so I can look back in the future and see how much things changed! I'd love to know a bit more about some of you too, so link below any introduction-y things please :)

  1. Strawberry chocolate is the love of my life.
  2. My ideal weather is 30'c or more, full of sunshine that makes the world shine all beautifully :)
  3. I love wearing flowers in my hair.
  4. 99% of my shoes are converse or fake converse (thank you h&m for kids).
  5. I have a phobia of doctors and jelly babies. Not together. Although that would be my worst nightmare.
  6. Pinterest is my favourite website.
  7. It absolutely infuriates me when people turn their noses up at art subjects.

  13. 13 has always been my favourite number.
  14. I am head over heels in love with East London.
  15. But Frigiliana is still my favourite ever place. It's like someone designed a village just perfectly for me.
  16. Clare Balding called my family weird.
  17. I regularly end up wearing about 6 different blue floral prints at once just because I own so many things that are blue and patterned!
  18. I desperately want to be able to fluently speak a second language!
  19. My first concert was S Club 7 at Wembley when I was 6.
  20. I'm now moving to Wembley in like a few days, eeeek.
  21. I'm 20 and I've never been healthy enough to have a job and the guilt of that kills me.
  22. But I had a bit of a winning streak in 2012/13 and won £650 in various art competitions which I put towards my macbook :) 
  23. I also had my artwork on 5 billboards! Including Tottenham Court Road and the North Circular!
  24. I am the clumsiest person you will ever meet. Co-ordination = nil.

  27. Everyone knows I am obsessed with the colour turquoise.
  28. My time at Impington 6th Form made me a 10000 x better person and will always be the best 2 years of my life.

  30. My favourite flowers are daisies.
  31. Coke Zero/Pepsi Max = <3

  42. I'd love to be friends with Greg James. I've met him twice, does that count!?
