Get to know me – 25 facts about me

Mish Mesh Blog - The things I wish I knew in my 20's

I have been blogging for about 6 months now and I have been chatting with other bloggers via Twitter chats, but I haven’t really revealed a lot about myself.

I had fun writing a few facts about myself for my Liebster Award, so I wanted to write this post so you guys can get to know me a bit better.

I sometimes find it quite hard to write about myself so I wanted to give myself a bit of a challenge. So here goes…

  1. I have appeared on TV – a blink and you’ll miss it appearance in Holiday swap (remember that 90’s-00’s show?) my brother and I made friends with the family who swapped holidays and we made it on camera playing table football.
  2. I love food, I’m a massive foodie, I love eating out at different restaurants and trying new food. I love cooking and baking cakes, my favourite cakes to make are my chocolate chip cupcakes.
  3. My favourite animals are penguins, I love them! I think they are so cute when they waddle and I love that penguin’s mate for life. I loved the film Happy Feet, I think that’s when I became obsessed with penguins.
  4. My birthday is 9th October 1986 which makes me 30 and a Libra. I would say I’m a typical Libra, I like to try and see everything from both sides, but sometimes I can be a bit stubborn. Although with horoscopes you have to take them with a pinch of salt! but they can be very accurate at times.
  5. I have a massive sweet tooth I love chocolate, sweets and of course cake.
  6. I’m a very organised person, especially when I am at work. I keep to-do lists and my desk is really tidy. When I’m at home I am a little bit more relaxed and laid back, I like to just, chill out and go with the flow.
  7. My favourite seasons are spring and summer. Spring because of the crisp and sunny mornings, all of the flowers are coming into bloom and it feels like a new beginning after the long cold winter. I love summer because of the long hot days, I love heading down to the beach after work and spending time in the sun chilling out drinking a G&T and having BBQ’s with all my friends, I also love how the sunshine and good weather can lift people’s mood.
  8. 92% of the time I’m a morning person, once I’m up I’m up, I’m not very grumpy either, I’m quite a cheerful person, which sometimes can get on people’s nerves. (sorry not sorry) the other 8% of the time I’m quite lazy and love sleeping in.
  9. I have been with my boyfriend Brendan for two and a half years now. I would describe him as my partner in crime, he loves food as much as I do, has a big sweet tooth like me and loves the summer. I think he is the ultimate cool dude. He is also really supportive of my blog, and he also likes a G&T or two.
  10. My Dream Job as a five-year-old was to be an air hostess. I think it was because I thought they all looked really glamorous walking through the airport with their uniforms, high heels and bright red lipstick, The five year me wanted to be just like them.
  11. I used to be a Graphic Designer/Artworker. I went to university and gained a 2:1 in Graphic Design. But after working in the industry I decided it wasn’t for me and made a move in marketing which is now the career I’m in. A career which I love.
  12. I love facials, I think they are a great way to relax and unwind after a busy day. I’m always on the lookout for new ones to try.
  13. Apart from facials another way I love like to relax is light candles and paint my nails while watching a girlie film.
  14. I am a very patient person, I always try and keep my cool in most situations, I also think I keep my cool when I’m under pressure and I keep my emotions in check. (which can sometimes be a bad thing)
  15. Continuing from my last fact…I can bottle up a lot of my emotions, which can be quite bad. I’m trying to be more open and honest about how I am feeling. I find it hard, but I have learnt it is so important to share your problems.
  16. I am very loyal and a trustworthy person. I have had some friends for over 15 years, these friends I met while I was in high school.
  17. I love wine, cider and gin. I love trying new gins in my local gin bars the Office and the Gin Tub.
  18. When I was 7, I was obsessed with Beauty and the Beast. Belle was my favourite Disney princess. I wanted to be her. For my 7th birthday, I had a Beauty and the Beast puppet show. (i know so cool huh?)
  19. I think now I am a bit older (I’m 30) I have mellowed. I used to be a big ball of energy, and I was very hyper and loud. But know I have chilled out quite a lot.
  20. My dream place to visit has always been New York. I have always wanted to go for as long as I could remember. Brendan took me there as a 30th birthday present and it was amazing.
  21. My favourite meal is roast dinner with all the trimmings, (including parsnips) they are my favourite roast dinner vegetable. In my opinion, it’s not a proper roast dinner without parsnips.
  22. I’m quite a goodie, goodie. I never got a detention when I was at school.
  23. I’m quite down to earth, I’m not a girl that wouldn’t dare leave the house without makeup on! I sometimes can’t be bothered to wear any especially in summer (that’s what sunglasses are for) I’m not big on designer brands either.
  24. For some reason I have always seen myself as a bit of a geek, I’m surprised when people say I’m cool!. I’m just happy being me.
  25. The life motto I always remember and like to stay true to is ‘treat others how you would like to be treated yourself. I think now more than ever we should be nice to each other and think of others.

So there you go guys, I hope you enjoyed finding out a little bit more about me?

If you have any other burning questions you would like to know, please leave a comment and also tell me a bit about yourself too.

Bye for now x

  1. Loved this post! Do you mind me asking did you go to the Uni in Brighton? I am asking because I am considering it for a Masters, I would love to chat to someone who went there! x

    1. Thank you 🙂 I went to an Art college in Worthing, but the course was validated by Brighton Uni. I have visited the Falmer site, its pretty impressive, they have a student union bar, maybe go for a visit and ask students that are currently there? I hope that helps? What do you want to study for your masters? xx

      1. Thank you! I live in Ireland so I am waiting for the open day to head over and have a look around. I’d love to hear what it’s like to study there from a student. I tried emailing them to ask if I could get in contact with a student but no luck as of yet! I’d love to hear more about Brighton, would you mind if I emailed you? I’m not fully settled on a course but leaning towards Creative Media. I think I’ll give the uni a call tomorrow! X
