25 Facts About Me!

I love reading these tags. It's just nice to gain a deeper insight into a blogger that you like and follow.

So I thought I would jump in and take part and show some purrssonality.

Here we go :)




1) I have always been a worrier. When I was a child I used to worry about schoolwork. As an adult I I worry about work/career development/when to buy another property/pensions. Everything. 

2) My first job was in telesales. I worked 10 hours a week during my Sixth Form and earned a load of cash selling ad sales. Maybe people felt sorry for my little voice when I called? I bought a Calvin Klein jacket with my first pay cheque :)


3) I always like the idea of going to fancy restaurants but I only really enjoy simple food like salads, sweet potatoes and great bread. 


4) I live by a beach but I have visited it about twice in the last year. 


5) I am addicted to blueberries and can eat a pile of them at a time. 


6) I cry very easily at sentimental Hollywood/TV fodder. I remember crying every 5 minutes when I watched The Blind Side and I almost always cry at the end of MTV's Plain Jane. 


7) I visit the Daily Mail website at least once a day. The sidebar of shame always keeps me clicking and reading.


8) I love rude jokes.


9) I would love to spend a month at an ashram, practicing yoga and just resting from everyday life. 


10) I like cats but love dogs. Since getting Roger I want to save all the lonely dogs of the world and am seriously considering volunteering at a rescue center.


11) I think I would prefer to live in another country rather than return to the UK - living in a country like Singapore appeals a lot. 


12) I enjoy living in a city but am a country girl at heart and envisage my ultimate house to be a cottage in a rural part of the world. So maybe I will be back in the UK then... :) 


13) I have quite a few grey hairs - but mainly of the left side of my head. I embrace them and hope that one day it will help me become a "legitimate" blonde!


14) When I am walking with a friend, I have to walk on the left side. It doesn't feel "right' any other way. I have since found two friends who also have the same quirk so I don't feel like such a weirdo. 


15) I lost one of my best friends very suddenly last year and I think about him almost every day. 


16) One of my pet peeves remains people that eat loudly in public. As well as people that don't thank you when you hold the door for them....your welcome!


17) I prefer to dress down than dress up and have quite a good collection of joggers :) 


18) I used to flirt with the idea of a boob job but then I went and got fitted at a great lingerie shop and it was "life changed".  Shop was called Pudding and it's in Reading. Highly recommend!


19) I am very happy with my own company.


20) I graduated with a Law degree but now work in a completely different field. I always advise people to not worry so much about high school/secondary school exams. Do well of course but don't get hung up on specialising in something at a young age because anything is possible. 


21) I sometimes snort when I laugh. Completely by accident obviously.


22) I used to be shy at talking in front of people but now I give presentations all the time and don't even think about it. 


23) My Starbucks order is a grande skimmed cappuccino.


24) I can't stand the Kardashian circus but I will watch it to perve over the makeup.


25) The "boudoir" that I planned on creating in my current flat never happened. The vaccum cleaner and other less interesting items took over. I am however moving in a couple of weeks so maybe I will get round to recreating it there.


That's my 25 - I quite enjoyed that!

  1. As a law graduate your degree gives me hope that, someday with a lot of hard work, that I can afford the same bags as you. For now I'll stick with my trusted Chloe messenger bag, I've had it for 2 years, used it everyday and its never failed me. :)

  7. This was so interesting, Laura! I had no idea you had a law degree. And Singapore is an awesome city... my parents lived there for a few years and I've been to visit numerous times. So hot though, but I'm sure you're used to that now!

  11. I always find individuals (especially young women) who move away from home for work to be incredibly brave and shall I say "ballsy". I absolutely LOVE the thought of working and making a life in a foreign country but am so petrified of failure. Great post as usual x

    ReplyDelete
  12. I LOVE living in Singapore. It's total expat city, but in a good way! I really think it's one of the coolest places in the world (with the best shopping).

  13. Loved this post! I hate presentations- glad that they get easier!

    I visit the sidebar of shame every day too- truly addictive.

  14. I totally know what you mean about that bloomin side bar on the Daily Mail website. I got into the habit of looking at it on my ipad just before going to sleep and then 1.5 hours later I was still on there rather than sleeping! I would never read the Daily Mail paper because I think that is absolute dross, but their online celebrity gossip and pictures are just too good.

  26. you did a law degree??
    would it be in anyway possible to share more about that and moving on to a different career post that please?
    ive currently completed my second year and have detested every minute of it so far, i honestly cant think of what to do or how to.
    This post has been the best so far! x

    1. email me! i am happy to help. I hated my degree until the final year and then decided I wanted to move into something more creative. The great thing about law is that it's such a useful degree in terms of analytical thinking - there isn't a career where it doesn't have value.

      Delete
    2. I was wondering the same thing. I am finishing a 55 credit MBA program (from a former YSL/Armani makeup artist of all things), and I'm looking at how to take the steps to get into a creative field while still maintaining an analytical component.

  27. I try not to read anything written by the Daily Mail but that sidebar is one of the most tempting things I've ever come across.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I so love reading these posts, sometimes it's really hard to 'see' the person behind the blog. This helps to humanise people and its so interesting! I hate loud eaters too, and when people don't say thank you I get furious but can do nothing but TSK loudly cuz I"m British and we dont make a scene haha! xx

  31. Great post, Laura! I don't know if I could come up with 25 things to say about myself if I tried! I really hate when people don't say thank you when you hold the door for them. I always just look at them and say "you're welcome" in sort of a snotty tone 😊

  43. I enjoyed reading this. I also hate when I hold the door open for someone and they don't say "thank you". I mean, really, I didn't have to hold it for you. And I know it's old-fashioned, but it makes me more peeved when it's a guy who doesn't say it. Heck, he should be holding the door open for me! Oh, and I snort when I laugh, too! It's one of my favorite personal quirks. :)

  50. I love knowing more about you Laura and you shared a lot of private stuff about yourself here. It's nice to know what degree you graduated, that you want to save animals and do volunteering works because I feel the same way. I just love animals especially Dogs and Cats. You could perhaps think of residing in Japan ? :)
    I can't stand the Kartrashians too :) They are so annoying.
    Always your friend from Japan Laura xx Stay happy xx

  79. Wonderful post. It's great to get to know more about you in such a raw but amazing fashion. When it comes to the education part, I think your law degree opened different doors for you, and that despite life is very unpredictable, having a general direction isn't too bad. I like to stand on the right of people, especially when I'm with my boyfriend or male friends. I guess it's not so weird anymore =).
