50 Random Facts About Me Part 1

Tuesday 27 January 2015

I love watching Youtube videos, my favourite youtubers being Kiera-Rose and Helen Anderson, and one of my favourite tags is the 50 random facts tag, so I thought I'd do a blog version! I often wonder about doing a Youtube channel, but I don't have a camera that can film, and I think my accent is terrible! So for now, I'll stick with this.

1) I am 5ft 11! Most people think that is pretty tall for a girl. I'm taller than Stu, and never tend to wear heels.

2) I have green eyes. My eye colour is one of my favourite things about me. The 'beauty rules' say that means I should wear purples and browns to make my green eyes pop, I love wearing purple, but I think green does the job too!

3) My feet are a massive size 10. Which is just a nightmare for buying shoes!  A lot of places make 9s now, but 10s are still so rare.

4) I only ever wear silver jewellery. I think silver is classic, and cool, and much prettier than all the other metals. Which is why I was so happy my engagement ring is silver!

5) I'm a qualified hairdresser. I do mobile hairdressing around my day job, but not much. I love it though!

6) I have a degree in English Literature. I used to want to be a teacher, but then I realised that I'm not well suited to teaching children because I don't like the way the education system teaches right now.

7) My hair has been every colour. My favourite is purple, or grey, and the colours that look terrible on me are black and red.

8) I suffer from a combination of chronic hemiplegic migraines with aura and chronic headaches. I have head/face pain 24/7, and have done for 5 years. Thankfully it is well controlled now, but it means I can't wear my hair up, anything touching my hair or face is painful, and I sleep a lot.

9) I have 3 step-children! Or at least, they will officially be my step-children when me and Stu get married. Two boys who are 9 and 10, and a girl who is 18!

10) My hair is naturally wavy, and I encourage the curl. My Mum's is ringlets, and I am so jealous!

11) We have 2 cats and a dog. Sir Stitch the Third of the House of Chubblington (Stitch for short), he's the black cat, and Lady Patches of Patchingworth (or Patches), she's the tortie, and Stitch's Auntie, and Ashen the rottweiler cross. Ashen is also known as goldfishcatdogreindeerllama. All 3 are rescues and I love them all to bits!

11) I used to collect Hello Kitty stuff. Like, I had so much it was kind of ridiculous. they needed their own room. When we bought our house two years ago I sold all but a handful of my collection off to buy furniture for the new house.

12) I've lived in Saudi Arabia, Lincoln, Norwich, Burton on Trent, and Grimsby. Saudi was when I was a little kid, Lincoln for uni, Norwich for between 2009 and 2012, Burton as a kid, and Grimsby the rest of the time. I loved Norwich, the place, the closeness to London, the friends I made, but I had to leave for me.

13) I'm partially deaf. I should wear a hearing aid, but thanks to my amazing and ridiculous allergies I can't wear it. Which is a shame, cause it's amazing to be able to hear better!

14) My musical taste is pretty diverse. My all time favourite musicians, bands and artists are The Wreckers, Dolly Parton, Skid Row, Stone Sour, Alice in Chains, Meat Loaf, Taylor Swift and P!nk. (Though I don't like Taylor Swift or P!nk's most recent albums at all *sad face*).

15) I started taking photos way back in 2007, and did all those cliche sort of photos alternative kids did back then.

A super old photo of Miki Maddison taken with my first SLR.

16) I all kinds of love Adventure Time. Stu hates it, thankfully my step-sons love it so are a great excuse to watch it! It's ridiculous but I think it's actually full of awesome life lessons for kids.

17) I am terrified of horses. I'm trying to work on it, but it's hard! They are massive and scary.

18) I totally have to admit... I am addicted to Sugar & Vice. I own sooo much of their jewellery and forever need more, more!

19) I hate peppers. I have this thing about their texture, that it kind of feels like it's... alive. I know. That sounds mental, but I hate them and can't eat them!

20) I've been vegetarian since I was 12.

21) My favourite colours are black, purple and red.

22) I really dislike even numbers. I don't know why. I can't set my alarm for 08:00 for example, it has to be 08:01.

23) I think octopuses are totally adorable. I think tentacles are amazing, and they are so intelligent and cute!

24) I'm teetotal. Because of the medication I take for my chronic pain I can't drink alcohol, as much as I love it. When I was allowed to drink I loved gin and cherry sourz. Not mixed together though, ew!

25) Because I don't drink, I drink either water with loads of ice, or Pepsi Max. I love Pepsi Max so much.

Right, I'm gonna split this into 2, cause it's way harder to do that I realised! 

Much love,
Kitty xxxx
