Ok, so as I was nominated by five wonderful bloggers, I’m going to try and do 35 facts about myself 😂 Get your cups of tea at the ready!

I have a degree in Ancient and Medieval History.

I wrote my 12,000-word dissertation on Frankish hair patterns – super cool and interesting, I know 😂

I am a huge fan of yoga and pilates (less so of cardio 😂).

I have an older brother (9 years older) who loves to get on my nerves.

I have three cats (Cleo, Twiglet and Truffle – L-R below).

My dream is to work in the book industry in some way.

My favourite animals are elephants and dogs – PSA that you should never ride an elephant x

I love making lists 😂 (to-do lists, shopping lists – anything that I can cross off as it makes me feel productive!)

I can name all of the kings and queens of England (since William the Conqueror) in order of succession. – a really lame party trick!

One of my favourite periods of history is Ancient Egypt – I had a phase of being obsessed with Tutankhamun and managed to bore my parents to death with all of my useless knowledge.

My favourite sport to play is badminton.

I can be such a hoarder, especially for sentimental things – I have boxes of old postcards, birthday/Christmas cards, event tickets, etc.

I really wish I was able to draw.

I’m a huge Disney fan! – My parents and I spent Christmas in Disneyland Paris in 2015 and it was magical 😍

I used to be a synchronised swimmer.

I’d love to be a published author one day – but that would mean I’d have to actually finish one of my WIPs lol 😂

Christmas is my favourite time of year – everyone’s just so festive, I love it!

I love horror movies and reading/watching anything to do with true crime.

I’d much rather be too cold than too hot.

I have a travel bucket list – all of the places I’d love to go and things I’d love to see. Right now, the Northen Lights are at the top of my list!

I’d love to have a big family when I’m older – my family is pretty small with quite a few of them choosing not to have children so I’d love to be the opposite.

I love to bake (even though my cupcake icing skills are awful) – I’ve also recently been getting more into cooking proper meals as well.

Throughout my time at university, I managed to never iron any of my clothes 😂 – my mom hates this and can’t understand how I did it.

I love to travel (and have been lucky enough to visit quite a few European countries and Thailand in South East Asia). – below are some pictures from my visit to Phuket Elephant Sanctuary in Thailand a.k.a the best day ever!

I used to be obsessed with paranormal romance books – I’m blaming this on the release of the Twilight movie when I was 11.

I used to be almost conversational in French – I’m now very rusty but would love to pick it up again 😂

I love books and films that make me cry.

I’m a sucker for new stationery and love a glittery notebook.

I procrastinate getting things done because I don’t think I’ll do them well enough.

I don’t know what I’d do without Netflix – it’s so useful for passing the time, or chilling out with something when you don’t want to pay too much attention.

There are currently 318 books on my bookshelves.

I love watching baking competitions – GBBO is my fave.

I have photographs of myself with friends and family all over my room.

I loved reading the Harry Potter series when I was younger and had a HP themed 16th birthday party.

I’m also most definitely a Ravenclaw 😂

Phew! 35 facts about me! That was actually much harder to write than I thought it would be 😂 Thank you for sticking around this long! Do any of these things apply to you as well? I’d love to know!

  1. I was just going randomly through your blog and I was reading this before I knew I had been tagged hahaha. Ok your dissertation sounds so hilarious, you are actually adorable. Also 35 facts about yourself sounds like such a challenge, but I enjoyed every single one of them!! Lots of love, Lavrax

    1. Hahaha the dissertation was a struggle towards the end but now I know loads about royal hairstyles 😂 The original tag only calls for 7 facts but I decided to squish all of my nominations into one, but 35 was a struggle! Glad you enjoyed it, much love x

  2. I’d personally feel like it would be weirder if you had said you ironed your clothes at university, I don’t think I (or anyone I know) picked up an iron once 😂 thanks for nominating me I can’t wait to do my facts x
