25 random facts about me

After getting one year older yesterday, I thought it seemed like the perfect time to share some random facts about me with you all. I attempted 50, but unfortunately ran out of steam, so here are 25 random facts about me...

1. I'm a complete nail polish obsessive - I think I have nearly 100.
2. I have no middle name.
3. I can't cook to save my life, but strangely I'm really good at baking.
4. Without mascara I have completely blonde lashes so never leave the house without it.
5. I love making lists.
6. Toffee Crisps are my chocolate nemesis - one is never enough.
7. I really love vintage clothing from the 60s/70s.
8. Hot pink is my favourite colour for accessories, despite never wearing it in my clothes.
9. Bon Jovi are my guilty music pleasure.
10. I really want to ombre my hair but worry it's not long enough.

13. My Kindle is one of the best presents I've ever been given.
14. I'm left-handed.
15. I used to sing in a band.
16. Despite having a massive love for high heels I struggle to walk in them.

18. Tigers are my favourite animals (tortoises come a close second).
19. I quit smoking 4 years ago.
20. I have yet to find a fake tan that doesn't look orange/ridiculous on me (if you know any for pale skin, let me know!).
21. I don't drink tea or coffee.
22. I once had 2 goldfish - they were called Fish and Chip.

  2. My polish collection is about 100, too, and when I try to reduce it (to make space for new ones of course), I never can even though I Know I can't possibly love all of them, I just can't let them go!

    Have you ever tried a toffee crisp partially melted in the microwave? Not so much that it turns to goo, but so that it keeps its form but when you put a spoon in it it's all melted - Heaven in chocolate form
