11 Facts about me

1. I have a very bad caffeine addiction
2. I have an inconveniently fast metabolism meaning I'm constantly trying to put weight on
3. I have Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome - which basically means I struggle to control my blood pressure and heart rate when I stand up
4. I'm a law student
5. I have an unnecessary amount of red lipsticks
6. I have arachnophobia
7. I'm also a pretty good baker
8. I was scouted by a modelling agency when I was 16 and it was the first time I was ever happy with the way I looked
9. I'm incredibly short sighted
10.  I have double jointed fingers and toes
11. I can't multi-task

Kayleigh's Questions

1. What is your favourite brand and why? 

Make-up wise- Rimmel as it's products are usually surprisingly good for the price and their products tend to suit my skin type. Also I always just seem to find myself buying their products without realising
Hair- Garnier as most other brands tend to dry out my hair
Skin care- Not really a brand but I love the Body Shop's skincare stuff

2. Who is your role model? 

I have quite a few role models I suppose. The first is probably my younger sister- she's severely disabled and I know that I could never do what she has to do everyday or be as clever as she is.
It's pretty cheesy and cliche but probably my parents as well for being able to take care of my sister full time- something else I know I could never do.

3. Who are your favourite bloggers?

There's so many that I love! I have a page for some of my favourites on this page
Some of my other favourites would have to be  She Might be LovedA Model Recommends and My Pale Skin

4. What is your greatest achievement, so far? 

Probably getting into Birmingham University to do Law as I genuinely didn't think that would ever happen, or managing to set up my own fitness society at my university.

5. Do you have a claim to fame? 

I've met Ant and Dec a few times as they are patrons for the Sunshine Fund a charity that I worked for and that is really close to my family. They also went to my dance school, as did Cheryl Cole so probably that.

6. What three items would you take with you to a desert island? 

A boat, so I could leave.
A massive bottle of water- because at least then I wouldn't die from dehydration
Chocolate- just to keep me going

7. What do you love most about blogging?

If I'm honest I love a LOT about blogging, but I think the thing I love the most has to be the blogging community, everyone I've talked to so far has been so supportive, helpful and lovely especially to beginners like me. I was expecting to not really be noticed by anyone other than the friends that I made read it so to have other bloggers with thousands of followers noticing and chatting to me means a lot.

8. Money isn't an issue, what do you do? 

Oh my god I really don't know! That's such a cop out answer but I really don't know! If I had to pick one thing to do it would either be starting a research project for curing cerebral palsy, or starting a dog and cat adoption centre but making it a really fancy adoption centre with fancy pet beds and toys and everything.

9. What's your party trick? 

I don't really think I have one, that's really sad! D:
My double jointed fingers creep people out at parties so I could use that. In my more flexible days of dancing I used to be able to get my leg up by my head so it used to be that.

10. Who would you most like to be stuck in an elevator with? 


11. If you could make or change a law, what would it be?

Oooooooh this was a GOOD question to ask a law student and I could go all law essay but I won't.
We did a lot of stuff about domestic abuse this year so I'd probably have to say making a defence for victims of domestic abuse who are abused to the point where they snap and kill their partners. (That might be a bit controversial but I don't want any comment wars on this post please!)

    1. I thought about that but I couldn't think of anything in particular I would buy apart from mountains of fancy make-up, so I thought I'd go for some bigger significant things :P No problem lovely :) xx
