50 Facts About Me

Sunday, November 17, 2013

I was recently tagged by the lovely Gracie from Ugly Face of Beauty to do the '50 Facts About Me' tag so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I know as bloggers and blog readers we're nosey people and I know i'm the type of person to LOVE reading this type of post and so I thought I'd add in a few photos too to make it a little more interesting and give you an insight to a little bit more about me!

So Here it goes...
1. I've been obsessed with diet coke and have been for years and will only order diet coke in fast food restaurants!

2. I've got an obsession with Topshop. I can't help but walk into every store I go past and have a look inside!

4. I have over 300 fashion magazines in my room on bookshelves and I love flicking back through them!

5. I love to go and visit friends who live up and down the country I went to see one of my best friends in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne which took 8 hours on the coach!
