  41. Number 57! I had the exact same thing happen with my ear! When I got to a&e it was too late as both splits had kind of already healed so had to go back when I got an appointment with a plastic surgeon to stitch it back up. Not a great experience and learnt my lesson. Got it re pierced though.

  47. Aw I love this post! I can relate to so so many of these facts but most notably Charmed! Ugh I used to love this programme and have always wanted magic powers since watching it. There were a couple of episodes on the other day actually and I was in my element!

    A Subtle Difference xx

  48. Hahaha youplayed an egg, that's funny. I'm also a big worrier, and it's not easy to change, but I'm trying! Hopefully we'll get there! :)

  50. Love that you played an egg in a school play.. amazing! haha! :)


  51. Omg, the one where Ross makes fajitas! hilarious "I'm Fine!". I'm also a total hypochondriac, I've been to the doctors three times in the past three weeks, everything I get even like stomach ache, I instantly think it's some serious illness.

  55. this is crazy it was like i did this myself most of these apply to me too!! scaryy

  56. I also love watching documentaries about serial killers! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one! Have you watched the new show out in the US called "The Following"? It might be available online, but it is about a serial killer and it is so scary but so good!! I am so scared of the show Prison break though, I tried watching season 1, but it caused me anxiety! eek. Great post! I feel like we could be twinsies!



  57. Ahhh! We have soooo much in common.. wanting to be photographers when we were younger, loving serial killer documentaries, Liam Neeson (err, I mean 'Taken' haha), Mexican food (although my main favourite is Indian).. and so many more! I will definitely have to write up a list of my own. :P

    Thanks for sharing!

  61. I have a split right earlobe too! It happened about two years ago so i'm kind of used to it now and my boyfriend says it adds to who I am haha, my parents still don't know!

  62. Defs get that thing about people eating too loudly! So horrible! I loved this, I felt like mine was a beast to cut down as I only did 25 - wish I'd done the same as you haha!



  63. Lovely post, it's great t get to know you a bit


  64. We are SOOO so similar. Most of these things i could relate to! Including the life sized poster of Gareth Gates - i used to literally be obsessed with him! haha i had him as my phone case (nokia 3310 - oof ;)) and i had a wall in my bedroom full of posters of him - cringeeeee!

    & im also self concious of what others think of me. I really wish i wasn't :(
    Had no idea you hated Ibiza! Only been on one party holiday to Ayia Napa and that was amazing at the time but not sure if i'd want to do it again now! I'd go back.. but maybe not go so crazy :P

  79. This was really interesting to read, I'm going to put a similar post on my blog now as it's new so nobody really knows me! Thanks for the inspiration! :) xx


  80. Wentworth Miller! Uhh yessss please! That series was so unbelievable and I really think they could have done many more series without having to kill him off at the end :(
    Sophie Kinsella is hilarious. I have read every single one of her books and just cannot wait until she publishes a new one! Her humour is definitely spot on, I find myself laughing like a mad woman to myself whenever I read them!
    This was a nice to read and learn a bit more about you! :)

  81. I totally agree with 75, 73, 68 and 65. I was such a Charmed geek, I have all the series on DVD and used to pretend I had magic powers with my friends.

    I enjoyed reading this so much I attempted to give it ago.
