25 Facts About Me-The Girl Behind The Blog

****14/06/15  I have slightly modified the original post and added a couple of new facts!****

Recently i came across a blog post titled "25 Facts About Me" so i thought why not give this a go. After talking to the girl behind the blog post,she told me that it was a difficult post to write but i thought sure why not give it a go,so here we are now. Even before i write any facts,i am finding it difficult lol! Anyway i hope you might enjoy a little bit of Hollie facts and interests and i hope it might give you an indication of the girl behind the blog!

1-I was born in Boston but moved to Ireland when i was 1 so have no memory of my birthplace at all.I have however promised myself that i will visit someday.

2-I support Swansea City for 11 years now since going for a weekend with the girls and going to The Vetch for a football match not knowing what to expect. I was hooked immediately,

3-I love anything Polka Dot especially skirts and dresses. I believe this all came from watching a video of Strawberry Switchblade singing since yesterday when i was a little girl and the fact that my dad had the record too.

4-I love playing Fantasy Football #fpl and finished 23rd in the world out of around 3 million people in 2012/13. I am very proud of this fact.

5-I was married at age 21,seperated at age 23 after my husband cheated on me and divorsed at age 27. I am now 29 years old.

6-I started my working life in a nightclub serving drinks and to this day i still work in the f+b industry although i dont work in nightclubs anymore. I will leave that to the younger girls.

7-I prefere wearing high heels to flats,a 4" and 5" heel are my favourites but do like a 6" from time to time and on occassions.

8-I love animals especially dogs and cats,i have a border collie,actually she is my BF's but she is mine now.

9- My favourite music is generally from the 80's for example The Bangles,A Flock of Seagulls and Cyndi Lauper.

10-Since joining twitter 10 months ago,i have had a mention on Irish TV,had a request played on national radio have been invited to audition for a reality show and have been offered big money to pose nude lol.

11-I suffer from Depression for a long time now but was officially diagnosed in January just gone! I will find the courage to write a proper post about this someday!

12-I know this might sound strange but when i take a real serious interest in something or someone,for some reason things always improve for that person. An example of this is Swansea City going from the 4th division to the premier league. My latest real interest is in someone who i believe the world is her oyster and something big will happen to her career. This will indeed prove my point.

13-I was not very girly in school but that changed over the years,i would describe myself as quite a girly girl now!

14-If i go out for a meal,my favourite dish would be steak,chips,mushrooms and fried onions,yummy.

15-I have no tattoo's although i am planning to get one,probably a swan in a love heart.

16-I find it difficult to go to sleep early,i guess that's from working till all hours in my younger days and it never left my system. I am a real nitebird!

17-Things that scare me are heights,spiders and wasps.

18-My favourite TV shows are Banshee,The Blacklist and The Originals. Also Game of Thrones is awesome!

19-I won a competition on Irelands top fashion show "Xpose" on Feb 4th but to this day,i have never recieved my prize! So disappointed with this!

20-I would love to have a child some day and fingers crossed it will happen but not just right now lol,i had a miscarraige during my marriage,

21-I always cry when watching a movie with either a happy or a sad ending especially when it involves animals,i get so embarrased at times with this.

22-I love getting flowers,that makes me very happy,especially pink and red roses. (Hope my lovely BF reads this lol).

23-Favourite quote recently "if in doubt,wear polka dot".

24-I have a girl crush if that's the right word to use and most girls do i believe,it doesn't mean i want to jump into bed with her or anything like that but i do think she is the most beautiful girl i have ever seen but unfortunately i cant say who it is because i follow her,she's a blogger but she doesn't follow me or my blog (sad face). It's always ok for a girl to have a girl crush right lol! ****Since originally writing this,i have taken a turn off this girl as she loves herself too much! ****

25-Fav number is 4, fav colour is red, fav nail varnish is Rimmel 030 red, fav perfume is cool water, fav lippy is anything by MAC, fav high heels by New Look, tea over coffee,polka dot dress over LBD and finally bra size is, well that's just going a little too far lol!

Well there you have it,i hope you enjoyed my 25 or so facts about me and just got a little more of an insight into me. One of the best things i ever did was to join twitter and start this blog! I have made so many new lovely friends and you all know who you are and i would love to get to know some more people that i follow abit better,

thanks for reading,

lots of love,

Hollie xxx

  7. I can imagine this is a hard post to write, but it was a really interesting read! I was born in Swansea and then moved when I was less than one year, so I have no memory. I think it's strange to have no memory of your birth place.

  13. I love this post! It's always fun getting to know fellow bloggers more. I'm also afraid of wasps, and all bees really. So impressive that you prefer 4-6 inch heels! I'm so bad at walking in them :)

  14. Great post, I always enjoy reading about the person behind the blog :D can't believe your ex husband cheated, what a douchebag! Also I really like 80s music and older music more than I do new music and I used to be less girly when I was younger too :) I've been recently watching the second series of The Blacklist with the bf after hearing him say how good the first series was and I'm enjoying it so far :)
