50 facts about me – as told by the important people in my life

There’s so many tags floating about online asking you to list facts about yourself. If like me, you struggle to think of even ten interesting things about yourself, I’ve got your back.

I thought it might be interesting to see what my friends, family and fiancé have to say about me, so I came up with the idea to leave the fact giving to them.

Get to know me through the eyes of others – 50 facts about me, as told by the important people in my life.

  1. I currently work in the construction industry.
  2. Camembert holds a special place in my heart.
  3. I’ve only ever owned white cars (which is weird, because I thought I didn’t like white cars much).
  4. I do the funniest impression of Macy Gray’s ‘I try’.
  5. I had a Moulin Rouge themed party for my 21st.
  6. Ellis proposed to me at said Moulin Rouge party.
  7. I’m a fussy eater, especially when it comes to meat.
  8. Despite my fussiness, I accidentally ate a moose burger last year whilst in Norway.
  9. 9 times out of 10, I walk up the stairs on all fours (I swear this is just in the comfort of my own home and not in public).
  10. I say ‘looook’, ‘booook’ and ‘cooook’ instead of ‘look’, ‘book’ and ‘cook’.
  11. My real name is Helena-Rose, but I’ve been called Rosie for as long as I can remember.
  12. I’m obsessed with candles.
  13. At uni, I spent entire weeks dedicated to binge watching Netflix, especially when it came to Gossip Girl and 90210 (I wish I had time for this now!).
  14. I’m terrible at replying to texts (don’t take it personally, just send me an OI!)

  15. My eyes always go really wide when I’m thinking, almost “hawk-like” (not sure if I like this fact?? hahah).
  16. I say ‘dead’ instead of ‘really’.
  17. I’m creative and artistic (thanks Megan).
  18. I’m left-handed.
  19. I freak out whenever I have candles burning (despite apparently being obsessed with them). I’m convinced that if I leave a candle unattended for even a second, the house will burn down.
  20. I have to check that the hobs are off multiple times before I can leave the house stress-free.
  21. I tell the funniest ‘disaster stories’ (aka I always get myself into awkward situations and my friends get a weird thrill out of listening to them).
  22. I have impeccable taste in 2000’s rock/metal music.
  23. I have smelly feet (erm, no i don’t).
  24. I have to have my right foot perched on the bath while I brush my teeth.
  25. I still have baby teeth left!
  26. I have brief stints of collecting things – candles, lipsticks, highlighters, and most likely hats now I own a beret.
  27. I met Ellis in Turkey when I was 15, and we’ve been together ever since.
  28. I often snort when I laugh (like really laugh though – again I promise this isn’t in public).
  29. My favourite meal is ham and coleslaw on crusty bread, ideally with kettle chips and sour cream and chive dip.

  30. My mum calls me ‘baby frog’ (there’s no explanation behind this one).
  31. I didn’t know that olive oil was made from olives until recently.
  32. I’m scared of the dark.
  33. I can’t sleep if I’m on my own.
  34. I won a makeup competition to go to New York with Pixiwoo and Real Techniques.
  35. When I eat a chocolate bar with a filling (kitkat, mars, snickers, crunchie etc), I usually eat the chocolate from the outside first, then the filling.
  36. I’m kind, caring and loving (this one obviously came from my mum).
  37. I studied French for the whole of high school, and all I can remember is a song about animals (a GREAT song may I add – Tu as un animal?).
  38. I’m scared of Michael Jackson, can’t even listen to his music.
  39. I’ve never seen any of the Star Wars films.
  40. I can duet to Paramore – Misery Business PERFECTLY with my fiancé.
  41. I’m apparently a ‘walking definition’ of a blogger.
  42. I find it funny when I use pump ‘number two’ at the petrol station (lol).
  43. I didn’t know that Gibraltar was a place.
  44. I don’t really like hugs.
  45. I love Prosecco and will NOT settle for a meagre 20cl bottle.

  46. I’m very intuitive.
  47. I’m a good present buyer.
  48. I’m very easy to get along with.
  49. I somehow make people who hate phone calls/FaceTime willingly participate and enjoy them.
  50. I’m a flatlay boss (apparently – I wish. Thanks Lauren, you’re a babe).

I guess you all know me a lot better by now thanks to my loved ones for these wonderful, interesting facts about me (can you feel the sarcasm in my voice?). I tag everyone reading this to give this a go. Go and ask your friends and family for some facts about you, and see what rubbish they come out with!

    Love this idea! I laughed so much at the going upstairs on all fours one – imagine if you really did that in public
