Get To Know Me | The Birthday Edition


So in case you didn't know, today is in fact my birthday! So I thought I'd do a different kind of post, one where maybe some of you who follow my blog frequently can get to know me a little bit better, oh and laugh at a few of my older pictures, which I'll add, I haven't picked out the worse ones, but regardless they aren't too pretty :D


Long gone are the days where the months leading up to my birthday are a massive countdown, you see as you get older the excitement just isn't the same, I mean it's just another year older, a few more wrinkles. Of course there's presents and drinking and food to be had, which is always fun, but I dunno it's just not the same any more. But none the less it's my birthday and today I have turned 33... which is a little depressing because in two years time I'll be in my mid thirties, which will be five years off being 40, which will be 10 ten years off being 50... you see where I'm going with this right? Yeah getting older is something I dislike a lot and I'm sure you can see why I have stopped with the countdowns! Wow didn't mean for this to get depressing! Anyway as you read this I'll be in London doing a spot of shopping and having a nice lunch and then out for a big fat Chinese for dinner with the family tonight and indulging in a few alcoholic beverages! Anyway want to know a little bit more about me in celebration of my birthday? Keep reading...


  • My dad use to call me Elmer Fudd after the 80's cartoon character as I had hardly any hair up until I was about 2 and a half PICTURES OF ELMER FUDD 
  • I used to be obsessed with tooth brushes, there are a million photos of me as a kid with a tooth brush hanging from my mouth, along with lots of dribble, yes I avoided putting those photos up!
  • I cant swim. In fact I have a massive fear of water. I can't physically put my head under water and also hate showers. Of course I clean myself, I'm a bath girl!
  • I was extremely spoilt as a kid and in some ways still am.
  • I can't cook for shit. In fact I have no idea how to turn on an oven. I can work with a grill and the hob. Thank god for microwaves right?
  • I once burnt microawave chips... yeah see point about. I'm not very good in the kitchen.
  • I have serious issues with sleeping. I can lay awake for hours unable to shut my brain off. I also suffer with serious night terrors on the odd occasion and have been seriously bruised from my night terrors/nightmares. 
  • I'm extremely accident prone.
  • I got my legs caught on an escalator at work on Christmas Eve and spent Christmas Eve in A&E. I was off work for eight week as a result.
  • I broke my big toe on the Cross Trainer the first time I ever went to the gym, in fact it was the first machine I went on straight after my induction!
  •  I've battled with my weight ever since I was a teenager. 
  • At my heaviest I was just under 12 stone. 
  • I then lost 3 stone in around about a year, although I have spent the past two years gaining 10lbs, losing 5lbs, gaining 3lbs and so on.
  • I damaged my hair so much that one side of my hair was around about 5 inches longer than the other side. This was years ago and waaay before I joined ghd.
  • I'm an extremely loyal person but can be unintentionally selfish at times.
  • I'm very loud, honest and outspoken. I'm never afraid to speak my mind and always used to be told I had a huge attitude problem by my managers (years back) I can now voice my strong opinions in a mature and adult way. I still have an argumentative side, but I believe I deal with things in a better way now and 9 times out of 10 can always get one up on someone in an argument now!
  • I love a good rant and my points are normally very valid! ha!
  • I'm a very good judge of character and can see through a lot of people and their fakeness. No offence, there is a lot of it in the blogging world.
  • I love a good drink. In fact I have calmed down a lot as I've got older but I'm a 33 year old binge drinker. I'm the kind of person who will start drinking at 2pm on a night out and carry on drinking until 3am. Yes I'll be in a rotten state, but it's always entertaining with a drunk Julie!
  • I'm even louder and outspoken when I'm drunk. I can not control what comes out of my mouth when I'm drunk, which resulted in me having a nickname of 'The Weapon'
  • I have a very addictive personality.
  • I love my tv shows. I'm a huge American tv show addict and can easily watch a whole season of a show back to back in two days!
  • I'm the fussiest eater you will ever meet. I basically live off chicken and tuna!
  • I'm convinced I'll win the Euro Lottery one day and often browse online at the houses I want to buy. I have picked out several houses to buy, but sadly I lost them all as I'm still waiting on those numbers to come up!
  • My dream men are Ian Somerhalder, David Boreanaz, Justin Timberlake, Paul Walker (R.I.P), Channing Tatum and Olly Murs!
  • I smoke too much and often get lectured.
  • I'm very anti religion.
  • I have a serious problem with money. I have been in debt twice, yet I just can't stop spending money. I was born to be rich I tell you!
  • I feel like my blog has enabled me to find my passion and it's something I would love to do full time!
So that's it! A little, actually a lot about me! I could have gone on for ages here! I hope you have found out a little bit more about me, stuff you may not have known! Oh I have left off some of the most hideous photos of myself here, although I hate getting older, I do feel like once I hit my thirties I actually blossomed into the woman I had always wanted to be. I have actually grown up a lot and relish in making sure people know, especially those who never thought I would.
