It is less than a week until I officially turn 21! Yes, that’s right 21! So, I thought what better way for you to get to know me than share 21 facts you didn’t know about me. I do share quite a bit of my life publicly on my blog and YouTube channel but, I also like to keep parts of my life private.
My least favourite task is washing my hair as it is naturally curly so it takes ages to brush as is a task in itself. The only hair brush that will actually brush through it is a Tangle teezer which is a holy grail product for me!
Autumn is my favourite season, the orange leaves the weather is starting to get cold so you want to be cosy. It would be closely followed by Winter as I love Christmas so much but there’s just something about Autumn that you can’t beat!
I love animals but I am scared of 4 animals. Sharks, I’ve always been petrified of them to the point where I don’t like going in the sea. I also hate snakes, they make my skin crawl. Horses, I think it’s because they are a lot bigger than me (I’m only short). Finally, cats I’m sorry all the cat lovers out there. I’m sure there are some lovely cats out there but I’ve had so many bad experiences being bit by unknown cats that I’m scared although I will now stroke cats if I see them.
My name is a little unusual so growing up I never really had a nickname at school. However, my close family did call me Brookie Cookie. I guess it isn’t technically a nick name as it’s longer than my real name. I was also called Boo by my parents which they still call me to this day.
My biggest regret in life is not telling the people closest to me that I love them enough.
I am scared of growing up! Literally like the lost boys from Peter Pan, growing up is something I’m scared of because I hate the fact I don’t know what the future holds.
My worst habit is biting my nails when I’m stressed or nervous. As a child I always bit my nails and they looked awful. As an adult I’m now trying to stop this however, sometimes when I get stressed I bit them off which is so frustrating.
I stress about stress before there is anything to stress about! I’m a stressaholic and I’ll openly admit that! This is something I am actively working on.
One of my future goals when I own my own house is to have rose gold wire basket full of lush bath bombs. No don’t ask me why I’ve just always wanted this!
I adore cosy days sitting watching a film eating snacks (mostly unhealthy snacks).
I am a self-proclaimed cake connoisseur! I love cake, like LOVE! Any type of cake except fruit ones, fruit in my opinion shouldn’t be inside cake and carrot cake I just can’t like sorry!
The one thing I can’t bake is brownies no matter how many different recipes I try they never come out right!
I only had my first Indian meal 2 and a half years ago when I met my boyfriend. Before, that I’d never tried any Indian food! I’m now obsessed and love Chicken Korma, Rice and Naan Bread.
If I could be a Disney princess I would be Belle 100%! A) she has brown hair like me but I just think her personality is so down to earth and we both share a love for books. Before, I attended uni I used to read so much but since at uni, I spend most of my time reading my uni books.
I love crackers to snack on. I could just eat them continuously. Especially, Ritz crackers there is something about them that is like a blessing to the world.
I definitely need to take better care of my skin, I often forget to moisturise!
I love surprises on other people but not myself. Partly because I’m so nosy and love to know everything that is going on. I haven’t been surprised since I was a child were my parents took us on holiday and we had no clue until we turned up, we thought we were going for a drive!
Sweets over savoury any day. I have the biggest sweet tooth, I literally care chocolate, sweets and cake on a daily basis.
My current boyfriend is my first boyfriend. I was never interested in relationships and having a boyfriend growing up. I always had my head in a book or doing work.
Fact Twenty One (the most scandalous one of all)
My dream job would be full-time blogging and YouTube! But, the reality is at the minute my future career looks like possibly teaching.
Make sure you check back onto my channel everyday for the next week at 5pm to read all my 21st birthday related posts!
