10 Facts about Me

1. I am only 5’1″ in height which can be the biggest pain! I would much rather be at least 5’5″ but I’m working with it…

2. Horrors and thrillers are my favourite type of film to watch, screw the Notebook, if there’s blood and gore – I’m there!

3. I can’t play a single instrument (does the triangle count!?) and I wish I had taken up something like piano when I was younger.

4. I adore chocolate and I’ve never even thought about giving it up for any reason. I don’t have a particular favourite, but on certain days I will have my mind set on what I want, whether that be Cadburys, Galaxy, Milka, Lindt…

5. I went to University in Newcastle and I miss the city so much! There’s so much to do there, it just doesn’t compare to my hometown.

6. I love quotes and have a huge bank of them saved in a document on my computer. It also makes me feel better when I can find a quote that accurately sums up how I am feeling that day.

7. The Dark Knight has to be one of my favourite films ever. Heath Ledger is incredible in it and I genuinely don’t see how anyone could play a better Joker. Sorry, Jared Leto!

8. I am a massive Harry Potter geek and rarely get any HP related trivia questions wrong. Go on, try me!

9. When I was younger, I once saw a boy at school’s pupil bleeding and from there onwards, I have had this massive fear of any eye related injuries or even when someone just stretches open their eyelids at me *shudders.*

10. Unfortunately I am an extremely fussy eater, which my mother loathes. My taste buds seem to struggle with a lot of different foods which mean I am far from adventurous with my palette and can often make life difficult!


So that’s a little about me! Tell me an interesting fact about you in the comments!

Emily x

  • I am 5'1" too and wish I was a little taller, considering my fiance is 6'3" I just look so tiny next to him. I like horror ones too however if I watch it at night then I make sure I don't go to bed straight away. 3,4,6 and 7 are the same. I like HP however would suck at questions. Went to Liverpool for my msc, such a great city x


    • Oh wow – there must be some serious benefits to having a tall fiance though! "Could you get that for me…?" I loved Liverpool, only went once however but did lots of Beatle-related things! x

  • I'm a shorty too! I think I'm pretty much stuck at this height though lol


    • Yep I certainly am not getting any more taller!

  • Great post! So interesting reading your facts. I'm afraid there's nothing really interesting about me!
    I'm double jointed in my thumbs? I have really long hair? I'm the laziest person ever, I am addicted to TV shows I watch like 20 at one time… I love films and books! Obsessed with the internet and being on my laptop. I'm a really anxious person, I'm starting Uni soon to study Media and Popular Culture…
    I can't really think of any facts haha! Becky Shannon xx – Life-by-Becky

    • Hey you've got lots of interesting things going on! Double jointed thumbs for one!? I don't have anything like that. We've got lots in common – tv shows…books! And most definitely the internet! :p Where are you heading for Uni?

  • These posts are always a great way to get to know a little bit more about the blogger behind the blog. I am also a big fan of Chocolate & Cadburys is probably my favourite since I'm Irish x

    Beauty with charm

    • Me too, nice to know someone is more than just a webpage. 🙂 Do Ireland have different brands of chocolate Alina? I've always wondered! x

  • I can totally relate on #2! It's like there's no fun and excitement if it's not a horror/suspense/thriller movie! Right?!

    • I'm glad it's not just me! And people think I'm odd when I flinch! Glad to hear it, HP geeks unite! x

  • Don't worry, I can't play any instruments either, and hell will probably freeze over before I give up chocolate!

    • Yes!! So glad to hear this Jessica hehe. What is life without chocolate??

  • I am pretty short myself and I am loving it! I mean, it sometimes sucks but you leanr to live with it 🙂 Also, I can relate to your 9th fact so much, I can not stand any eye contact with injuries, bleeds, eye streching and things like that. It gives me shivers, bad kind ones.

  • We are the same height! I don't mind it but at the same time being at least 5'5 would be awesome.
    Tegan xx – Permanent Procrastination

  • Yes, I just saw a guy who eyes had a blood vessel pop. I must admit, it was quite horrendous.

  • I'm 7inches taller than you! I would look like a giant next to you.
    I love horror and thrillers too.

  • I think your height is rather lovely – at least it doesn't narrow down your pool of guys to date (speaking as someone a little over 5'9'', it can get a little awkward haha..). Also, high five for loving horror films!

  • nice to get to know you more sweetie…
    kisses from dubai ♥

  • I just loved this post! So nice to get to know you a little better 😀 I can relate to you SO MUCH in terms of height (oh, the struggle sometimes…), chocolate loving (No regrets. Whatsoever. It's the best.) and quotes! Quotes are one of my favourite things to read and I too have a document just FULL of them! 🙂


  • Hey, nice to know you better, girl 😉

  • I'm a short arse too!
    Love these types of posts – I like to be nosey. I love Harry Potter & chocolate too <3


  • I swear we're twins! I love horror shows/films, chocolate, and Harry Potter! Plus I'm 5'1, can't play any instruments, and I keep quotes in a document on my computer as a little pick me up if I'm ever feeling down too. 🙂
