It’s not often that I talk about me on my blog, not in detail anyway. As many of you know, I prefer to keep my private life private when it comes to blogging. But I really enjoy reading posts about the person behind the blog, which is why I did the face behind the blog tag recently. That post mainly focused on blogger topics, so thought I would share some facts with you today which you wont have known about me. I really enjoy getting to know you all, so what better way to do that than to first share some things about myself!
It will be interesting to find out which of the facts you are surprised about and which you would have guessed.
I am the shortest person in my family. I’m 5ft3 and always get made fun of for it. At one point in my life I was 5ft4 but shrunk in my 20’s. Is that a thing? It’s surprising that I’m short because my dad is 6ft3, so I must have gotten my short genes from my mom. I always have problems buying jeans or leggings to fit my legs because they’re so small, its a real short girl issue.
I AM JAMAICAN
Nobody can ever tell my ethnicity from seeing me or seeing photos of me. I always get told that I look European, Spanish or Greek. My dads side of the family are from Jamaica, and my moms families background are from France. Alot of my family members have such darker skin than me, mines quite olive.
I’M A CHRISTIAN
This might not come as a surprise to some, especially if you’ve been here for a while. I have mentioned it a couple of times on my blog. I am a christian and have been for the last 8 years of my life. It’s the best thing I ever did. 10/10 would recommend!
I WEAR GLASSES
You would never know this as my blog reader because I hardly ever take photos with my glasses on. I have really bad vision in my left eye so have to wear glasses to help make it stronger. I wear a contact lens in my left eye too when I’m not wearing glasses. I’m even earring glasses as I write this post!
I HAVE TWO TATTOOS
When people find out I have tattoos, they always seem shocked. Like I don’t seem like the person who would have them. Although I don’t know what ‘type’ of people are supposed to have tattoos! I always said I wasn’t ever going to get a tattoo, but I had quite a big life event happen and it was from that, that made me get them. I wont share them today as I don’t feel comfortable sharing the meaning behind them, but they’re my favourite reminders!
MY NAME ISN’T OLIVIA
Olivia isn’t even my name. It’s an alias name I use for privacy reasons.
JUST KIDDING! Olivia is my name haha!
Were you surprised at any of the facts I shared?
Now its your turn to share some facts about you that your readers wouldn’t ever know. Only share what you feel comfortable sharing!
As many of you know, I am participating in Blogmas this year. Over on my Instagram account I have shared my blogmas calender! I thought I’d share it here too, so you guys can see when I’ll be posting and when I’ll be taking a break!
Thanks so much for reading! I hope you learnt something new about me today!
