Hey loves!!! Today I had planned on doing a beauty post on my Top 5 Mascaras but I feel like I do a lot of beauty related posts and have quite a number of them planned for future posts so I thought instead I would do the ‘Get To Know Me Tag’ that most Bloggers and YouTubers do to allow their readers or viewers to get to know them better, hence the title! Hopefully you will all enjoy this little random lifestyle post as it’s something a bit different from the usual. Let’s get started!

30. Tell us one of your bad habits!
Hmmm I would say my worst habit is probably my OCD where I have to check things are in their right place all the time or picking spots when I shouldn’t! Oh and also probably knowing I need to leave for somewhere at a certain time and being ready for then but just faffing about and procrastinating just before I am due to leave which ends up in me having to rush to my destination and being late usually, I wish I would learn lol!
So there we have it guys, 30 little facts about me. I hope you enjoyed this fun wee post and it has helped you all get to know me a bit better. Don’t worry I will still be doing my Top 5 Mascara posts at a later date, I was just fed up with doing constant beauty posts so I wanted to do something a bit more light-hearted and fun today. If you like my posts be sure to follow me on social media (buttons are at the bottom on a mobile or the right hand sidebar on a PC). Thanks so much for reading and lots of love until next time,
