25 Random Facts Tag

 I was tagged by Abbey at Abbey Loves Allure to do this tag.  I'm afraid I am pretty boring so hopefully this isn't too bad.

1. I share my name with an Oscar Winning Makeup Artist.  I've accidently gotten her MAC Pro discount a couple of times but I'm not complaining haha.  She has a makeup school in London, England which I tried to find last time I was there.
2. I'm obsessed with sweet potato fries and am eating some right now.
3. I'm 26 but people often mistake me for a younger age.  It really hurts my feelings but I'm working on not letting it bother me because I know people don't mean it in a bad way.
4. I can sometimes come across as confident and chatty but I actually have major social anxiety.
5. My background is Scottish, English, and Irish. 
Me as a redhead and then as a blonde.  That's my mother looking super tired (probably my fault).


6. I was born with red hair that eventually turned blonde.
7. I've been wearing makeup since I was 12.  I just wore natural makeup back then though.
8. I've met some of my closest friends on the internet first before meeting them in real life.
9.  My boyfriend and I have a tradition of getting "treats" on a Friday night which could mean anything from ordering pizza to raiding the junk food aisles at 7-11.
10. My favourite t.v. shows are Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, and American Horror Story (I've yet to start the new season yet though).

11. The only alcoholic drinks I like are gin and tonic or champagne.
12. "McDonalds" was one of my first words.
13. I've known my boyfriend for 5 years and still have difficulty pronouncing his super long Polish last name.
14. I moved a lot as a kid and switched schools often.  I only have one long term friend as a result.
15. I have an obessession with re-watching stupid Youtube videos that I find funny. King Curtis is my favourite.  This kid kills me.

16. I usually am too lazy and hungry to have dinner on work nights so I eat a bunch of snacks instead. My boyfriend calls these meals "Christine dinners".
17.  I was born in Scarborough, Ontario  but I've never lived there.
18. I have a love/hate relationship with living in a big city.
19. I usually change my nail polish colour everyday.
20. This is not my fact but I like to share it: my grandmother dated Sean Connery before he was famous.  Apparently he had "Roman hands and Russian fingers" lol.
Sean Connery. Too bad he was a jerk because I could have had a rich grandfather.
21. I hate super hot and super cold weather. Basically I hate Canada's extreme weather and wish fall and spring were longer.
22. I have a 15 minute commute to work by subway and I never ever want it to be longer.
23. Both of my parents have a lot of siblings so I have a big extended family and loads of cousins.
24. I used to have really curly hair but it's gotten straighter as I've gotten older.
25. I have 2 sets of twin cousins on the same side of the family (all 10 year old girls!) and I really hope I have twins when I have kids.

    1. Haha second person so far with a connection to Scarborough. I'm normally pretty good with pronouncing names but this one is just way too hard.

    2. It must be a sign ;)
      I am sure it's not that bad! Just sound it out slowly lol - what will happen if you get married?;P

    3. It has a silent z in there haha. Maybe I need to learn the Polish pronounciations for letters. He wants me to take his name but I feel weird changing my name regardless of what his is. Men should take our names!

      Delete
    4. LOL I can give you some secret lessons so you can impress him ;) I think whoever has the cooler last name should win that debate! I dated guys with some horrible last names, and that itself was grounds for dismissal!

      Delete
