25 Things About Me :D

25 Things About Me!
...That you might not know ;]

I was tagged by Penney Rose who has a lovely blog; PinkAndPetals. She is such a sweet blogger so go check her out! I thought this was a fun tag. Plus, if you were curious at all - it lets you in on a few tid-bits about me. So here goes nothing! I tag everyone :] leave links to your 25 things because I would love to read them!

1.) I own a pink rifle and I've got a membership at a shooting range! I love to shoot and hey, I'm a pretty good shot! 

2.) I've moved every 2-3 years my entire life since I was born. I love it and wouldn't change it for the world. You get to see so much!

3.) My most favorite and the last place I was lived was Florence, Italy.

3.) I was born in England

4.) I never wear a full face of make-up! I want people to see who I really am without masking my scars.. I'm afraid I would use make-up as a crutch. I can be just as confident with scars covering my cheeks as I can be with them covered.

5.) I rarely paint my finger nails since I use my hands so much they usually chip within a few days. I don't like my nails chipped haha!

6.) I have degrees in painting, art history, and art conservation

7.) I've been single most of my life and I've never had a true relationship. They were all either short lived or long distance.

8.) I love keeping my car clean! I wax my car, change all the fluids, and enjoy working on the engine :]

9.) I've been thin all my life. 8 years later I still fit in my high school prom dress, I've got made fun of too many times to count sometimes it wasn't very nice.

10.) I don't like children and don't plan on having any in the future. Everyone's been telling since I was a little girl that I would change my mind. Hasn't happened yet! 

11.) My favorite places I visited when living in Europe was Greece, Morocco, and Turkey.

 12.) I love a good glass of wine

 13.) I have a serious thing for guys with long hair! I oogle at them! But It's impossible now a days to find one... I think all guys should just let their hair grow :]

14.) I'm scared to death of driving but I have to do it. I feel like I'm too careless to be behind something so powerful... powerful enough to kill me.

15.) I'm definitely an introvert with some serious social anxiety but I'm good at putting that all aside and pretending like I'm not.

16.) I have more books than I know what to do with! I still haven't givin' in to this whole nook thing. I like the smell and feel of real books though I can see how nooks can really come in handy. I'm just stubborn when i come to updating with technology hence why my phone's at least 7 years old.

17.) I've been continuously working out for over 7 years now! It was the best life change I ever made. Of course I've always loved a good hike 

18.) I've been struggling with acne since I was in elementary school. I think my skin is just cursed and I've learned to life with it... kind of!

19.) I was a tom boy growing up and hated clothes. Which is fine- I got to enjoy being a kid. But now I have a shopping addiction :D

20.) I've loved bugs since I was little!! I will catch anything except for mean looking spiders. I don't like those guys! 

21.)  I have a large butterfly tattoo doing down my back and I have a my little pony tattoo (you probably saw my post on how much I love collecting my little pony) on my hip :D I got my mom addicted too. Go mom!

22.) The first of my college friends just got married and It was an honor to be apart of her big day! So much fun! It was only the second wedding I've ever been too and my first time being in one :] Better pics coming soon!

23.) This weekend I experienced a manicure for the first time, getting my hair done for the first time, and first time having a full face of foundation done professionally for me! Whew that's a lot of firsts :]

24.) I don't like pedicures! I don't like other people touching my feet because I feel bad! Who want's to touch someone elses feet?! The lady told me I needed to relax and I couldn't haha! I just give myself pedicures now :]

25.) I wish I would cry more to show people how much a care and that I feel what they feel. It's really hard for me to actually show that kind of emotion especially in public! Though I did tear up at one point during the wedding saying good bye to the bride :D

Questions, comments, and advice is welcome! Hope you had as much fun as I did this weekend ;]


  1. I agree with you about the Nook! I feel like I'm always staring at a screen and a paper book gives my eyes a break from that. Great post!

    1. Agreed! After a while screens sometimes give me a headache. I'm on my computer enough- it's calming to get away from technology every once in a while :] Thanks for stopping by Lisa!

  2. Oooo give me a man with long dark hair any day! *swoon*
