Get to Know Me


Happy Friday loves!

Whilst I’m still recovering from this god-awful cold/fever, I thought I would write a ‘25 facts about me’ post. Some might find it a little corny/cheesy but honestly if you’re reading a blog on a regular basis it’s your right to know that blogger a little better right?
