25 Random Facts About Me

Thursday, 4 July 2013

by Adele

Happy Thursday Lovelies!

A slightly different post from the norm...I've not done one of these posts for a long time, so I thought it would be nice to share some random facts about me, so you can get to know more about the person behind intotheblonde...

Here goes...

1. My day's just not the same without my morning swim. I'm in the pool at 7am & swim 2.5km of front crawl each morning Mon-Fri.

2. My Starbucks order is a Grande Decaf Cappuccino.

3. I'm 5' 6" tall & weigh 8 stones (okay so that's 2 facts in 1!!).

4. I adore Scallops & will always order them if they're on the menu when eating out.

5. I have a natural flair for picking up languages - I speak fluent French & spent a year living/working in France as part of my degree course.

6. I LOVE shopping & will even admit to being addicted to it!
I shop more & more online these days (love love love receiving parcels), although I do love a good shopping trip to London!

7. I'd love to live by the beach.

8. My younger sister Nicky is also my best friend, we text a gazillion times a day!

9. I'm a big softie & cry really easily at films/TV. You name it, I'll have probably blubbed watching it!!

10. Some may say I'm fussy - I prefer to say I'm particular!

11. My favourite cocktail is a Mojito - what can I say, they just slip down so easily!

12. Watching The Vampire Diaries is my guilty pleasure. I have a slight MAJOR crush on Ian Somerhalder who plays Damon.

13. I love to people watch.

14. I have bunions on both feet, which are incredibly painful whether I'm wearing heels or flats (this is why I don't splurge on expensive/designer shoes). I know I'll have to have them operated on one day.

15. I love to talk & will quite happily natter away to anyone!

16. My first job was as a Shoe Sales Assistant working Saturdays & vacations when I was a student.

17. I'm scared of moths, yet I love butterflies (work that one out!).

18. As well as blogging, I run our property business. I love being my own boss as I don't like being told what to do!!

19. I laugh at my own jokes (maybe just a little too much sometimes)!

20. I'm crap when it comes to technology, with the exception of my iPhone which contains my whole life, appointments, lists etc etc.  

21. I love driving. As a child I used to sit behind my Dad in the car & pretend to drive.

22. I'm a huge dog lover & have an 8 year old German Shepherd called Missy & a 2 year old Miniature Poodle called Hugo whom I love to bits.

23. I've been fortunate to travel a lot (on holiday & in previous jobs). My favourite holiday was a Kenyan safari.

24. Right now on my iPod I'm listening to Rudimental's album Home.

25. I'm not particularly religious, but I do believe things happen for a reason.

So there's my 25! I actually found that exercise quite theraputic!!!!

And finally...

Happy 4th July to all my American followers. Enjoy the holiday!

Thanks for reading Lovelies!

This is one of my favourite posts in ages, it's amazing to actually be able to learn more about you Adele. I'm not shocked at all that you run a successful property business considering that you also run a successful and amazing blog. I'm most impressed by your daily swimming routine, do you feel like you've gained a lot of health benefits from it? Reading this has tempted me to start again, I love swimming but don't go often enough to justify my gym membership any more since I changed gym.
