20 Random facts about me

From time to time I like to do 'Get to know me' type posts for my new readers (and old!), so today I thought I'd do a 20 random facts post for you :)

  1. I hate my natural hair colour (mousey brown), and haven't sported it for about 20 years.
  2. My favourite flowers are lillies (stargazer lillies), they smell so amazing :) I also love orchids & tulips
  3. I love spending time with friends, it's when I'm at my happiest
  4. I'm one of the least patient people you'll ever meet
  5. I freakin' hate spiders, they scare the bejesus out of me, I pretty much always live in fear that I'll see one or worse, that I'll find one on me *shudders*
  6. I'm obsessed with baby animals, cuteness overload!  Kittens are my favs, then lambs, then baby ducks/birds :D
  7. Despite only having a provisional driving license, I'm a complete petrol head :) I love fast cars, Top Gear, Formula1 and Fast & Furious (Tokyo drift is my fav!)
  8. I'm vegetarian, not because I don't like the taste of meat, but I hate the idea of eating animals :(  I've been vegetarian for just over 2 years now
  9. Over the years I've dyed my hair every colour under the sun - pink, orange, purple, red, green, blue, black, brown and henna :)
  10. I've never worn fake tan (I've tried a gradual tanner twice - like the Dove hint of colour, but didn't like it)
  11. I have 1 grandparent left, my Nanna in Ireland, she's 91 :D
  12. I'm really bad looking after plants, they almost always die on me - the only ones that don't are succulents like Money Trees :)
  13. I don't like chocolate desserts, especially choc ice cream,  I feel like they taste powdery.  I do like actual chocolate though :)
  14. I moisturise my hands around 10-20 times a day when I'm at work
  15. When I was younger it was my dream to be an artist when I grew up, I went to college to study art and did graphic design as a degree, but I've ended up working in insurance and couldn't be happier
  16. I love and obsess over this blog more than I should
  17. I love sushi and I love roast vegetables, my two favourite foods
  18. I have an underactive thyroid which means I have to take tablets every day for the rest of my life (I also have asthma and have to take inhailers every day)
  19. I love being married, it's the nicest feeling in the world <3
  20. I still have my first childhood teddy bear & doll in my bedroom :)
So there you have 20 random facts about me, I hope you enjoyed reading them :)
