Welcome back to my blog! | 10 Facts About Me

Hi everyone!
Welcome back to my blog!  I last posted on this blog nearly two years ago which feels like a crazy long time!  Two summers ago I got a place at the University of Cambridge to do my PGCE (which is teacher training).  I decided that my energy really needed to go into my work and I was struggling to find time to do my blog so I made the decision to make it private and go offline for a while.  I completed my PGCE and went on to become a primary school teacher.  Unfortunately (for reasons I will talk about in another post!) I made the very difficult decision to leave my teaching job in December, and so currently am not working.

So here I am 18 months later, with nothing but time, so I decided I would love to start my blog up again.  I used to love writing blog posts and also really enjoyed reading other people’s blogs – please leave a link to your blog (if you have one) in the comments, I would love to check them out!

I will aim to post twice a week: at 7pm on Sundays and Thursdays.

So now that I am back, I thought I would do a 10 Facts About Me post so that you can get to know me a little better.


1)      I am 22 years old (will be 23 in April!)


2)      I don’t have any pets but I love dogs a slightly abnormal amount.


3)      I have a degree in English Language from the University of Reading.


4)      I have done half a Masters degree alongside my PGCE – I intend to do the other half at some point!


5)      I have anxiety (which is something I’ll talk about more in future posts).


6)      I have a younger sister (she’s just turned 21).


7)      My favourite bloggers/YouTubers are Sprinkle of Glitter and Mrs Meldrum.


8)      My favourite colour is pink.


9)      I have been dying my hair since I was 15 – I don’t think I’d feel like myself without blonde hair!


10)   I love doing my make-up and playing around with it, at the moment I am absolutely loving the Urban Decay Naked 3 eyeshadow palette.
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

    I too love Sprinkle of glitter, I’ve recently been obsessed with her since she’s had Pearl. I’ve been dying my hair since 15 too, instead of blonde (I’d fear I look silly with blonde hair) I dye it red or purple, it kind of depends on my mood.

    Loved this post, it was so lovely to get to know more about you. xo

      Thank you, that’s very kind! I’ve loved watching Louise’s weekly videos with Pearl! X
