25 Facts About Me

25 Facts About Me // Lauren Rose Style // Fashion & Personal Style Blogger London - Street Style Notting Hill - Personal Post

Last week I turned 25, which is an age I am quite happy about. Normally when my birthday comes around, I dread the fact I am getting one year older, but not this year, I am quite happy to turn 25 and just have a general good feeling about this age!

To mark this occasion on my blog I thought it would be nice to do a sort of 'get to know me' style post, sharing 25 facts about me that you may not know already...

25 Facts About Me // Lauren Rose Style // Fashion & Personal Style Blogger London - Street Style Notting Hill - Personal Post

Let's start with the basics...

1. My middle name is Rose, which is why I named my blog Lauren Rose Style.

2. I am from Scotland, but have now lived in London for about 2 and a half years now and although it definitely took a while, I now feel totally settled here.

3. I went to University in Aberdeen and studied Fashion Management. It was the best course I could ever have picked to study, I met the most amazing group of girls and I absolutely loved it and ended up graduated with a first!

4. I work full time in Fashion Merchandising and recently was promoted to an Assistant Merchandiser, which is really exciting. I might do a full blog post in the future about how I got into my job and working in Fashion in general.

5. I currently live in North West London with my boyfriend, who I have been with for almost 5 years!

Things I like...

6. My ultimate style crush has always been Alexa Chung. Her style is totally effortless and she just seems really cool.

7. My favourite food is probably chocolate, which I have actually given up for lent - wish me luck!

8. I am a coffee drinker and I honestly cannot start my day without one.

9. I absoultley love to bake. Cakes, cookies, banana bread, you name it.

10. My favourite film ever is 'This Is 40', it is one of those movies that I could watch again and again and it never get's old. So obsessed.

More things I like..

11. I am a huge One Direction fan. I have been to see them live three times and I am also going to see Harry Styles in April, no shame.

12. My favourite colour is pink, you will notice I tend to wear a lot of pink and my Instagram theme definitely gravitates to pink more often than usual.

13. Bradley Cooper is my ultimate celeb crush, he is so dreamy.

14. I am obsessed with all things Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes, definitely my two guilty pleasures.

15. I am also pretty obsessed with Ariana Grande. She is the queen and I think she is such a huge inspiration to all women.

Things I don't like...

16. I have a blood disorder called Hereditary Spherocytosis, which basically means that my blood cells are a different shape to normal peoples. I take medication ever day for this. It doesn't really affect my life all that much, but I just tend to get run down more easily.

17. I have a huge phobia of needles and blood in general, which isn't great since I have a blood disorder and have to have my blood taken once a year, I honestly hate it so much.

18. Unfortunately, I am not an animal lover. I promise I am not heartless but I am actually just scared of most animals, especially cats and dogs. I have honestly tried to get over this over the years but I really just don't like them either. If someone shows me a cute animal pic, it is most likely that I won't find it cute and I have to pretend - SOZ FRIENDS. I honestly think it is a physiological thing that has stuck with me since I was really young.

19. I hate condiments. I hate mayonnaise, salad cream, tomato sauce, brown sauce, salad dressing, you name it. I just hate the taste and cannot deal with the consistency or texture of them, yuck! I know I am weird and super fussy!

20. Online shopping is not my favourite. I love shopping but I am just not the biggest fan of online shopping. I find it the most annoying thing when everything you ordered doesn't fit or looks nothing like the picture online. I must prefer having a browse around the shops myself. Anyone else?

Cardigan: Shein (Shop Here) // Cherry Top: Topshop (Shop here) // Jeans: River Island (Shop here) // Boots: Forever 21 // Bag: Topshop

Let's finish with some random facts...

21. I used to be super sporty when I was younger. I used to swim, play squash, golf, hockey and tennis. I don't know how I found the energy for all that but I have always regretted giving it all up, especially swimming.

22. I wear eyeliner ever single day. I never leave the house without it and I now think my face looks strange if I don't put it on since I have been doing it for so long.

23. I have the smallest tattoo on my left wrist of a half moon. It may be small but I love it so much.

24. I used to have a Nanny Mcphee tooth when I was about 9 years old, no joke. I got bullied for it and my mum had to beg the dentist to remove it for me. LOLZ.

25. My dream holiday destination's would have to be either Bali or the Maldives.

So, there you have it. 25 facts about me. I must admit I did find it hard to think of so many, hopefully they weren't too boring and you learned something new about me!

Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday.
