1. I used to suck my thumb from the ages of 0 – 6 and pull out the fluff from a Christmas hat which I named “wobbly hat”

2. The sun instantly makes me happy and rain instantly gets me down

3. I am a really fussy eater and stick to what I know and love

4. The last time I got properly drunk was when I was 18, since then I’ve barely touched alcohol

5. I can’t wait to have my own babies (not for at least another 6 years – hold your horses)

6. When I feel comfortable around you, you will probably think I am a complete weirdo. Weird is good though right?

7. I can appear quite shy when I first meet people, but very quickly warm up

8.  I used to do country dancing, maypole dancing and knitting in primary school

9. The Isle of Wight is one of my favourite places to be. I have so many amazing memories of being there as a child, so it’s always nice to go back.

10. I am counting down the days until bootsales (car boots) start again

11. The most North of the UK I’ve been is Leeds

12. The smell of mushrooms cooking makes me gag/want to throw up and don’t even get me started on what they taste like…

13. I’m addicted to cupcakes (Hummingbird and Lola’s to be precise)

14. I’m taking an extra empty suitcase to Florida in March so that I can stock up on American cereals (Lucky Charms mostly), pop tarts and other sweets and treats. I’m sure most girls would take an empty suitcase to bring back all their US makeup goodies..but no. haha

15. I’ve not been on an aeroplane for almost 7 years. I’ve forgotten all things “flying”

16. I sing all the time when I’m alone but would never properly sing in front of anyone. 

17. My legs always have little bruises on them. I don’t even know how or why, but they do. Apparently I bruise like a peach and have terribly clumsy pins.

18. So far this year, I’ve only cried at happy things and no sad tears at all. *fist pump*

19. Sometimes I have hot chocolate for breakfast

20. When I’m cold, I’m get really grumpy

21. I collect Disney DVDs

22. I love driving on long road trips and discovering cool new places (mostly by the beach)

23. I still eat potato “SMILES”, meant for kids (don’t judge me, they taste damn good okay)

24. Sunglasses shopping frustrates me because of my pea head. None of them fit me.

25. I have the worst selective hearing EVER. It annoys everyone so much. if you were to talk to me as I write this blog post, I just wouldn’t hear you.

Hope you liked this slightly more personal blog post this evening! I’d seen lot’s of other bloggers doing this so thought i’d do it too. I’d love to hear 25 facts about you aswell. I also apologise for the “i’m-feeling-slightly-mental-so-my-webcam-photos-have-turned-out-like-this-and-these-were-the-only-half-decent-ones” shots. We all have moments like this…right? haha

  1. Bootsales are my fave. They often have the best items which I can get for a very low price! They also have a sausage sizzle somewhere near the bootsale, and that's my favourite part ;)

    I can totally relate to number four and sixteen. Number fourteen makes me want to send you cereal ! I didn't know we had cereal you guys couldn't get.

    Also, hurrah for the silly pictures staying – People can be silly, we LIKE the silly face Zoe! :)

    My facts video is just really embarassing – I'm not sure why I thought it'd be fun to only share WEIRD facts about myself but hey, I did!
    Here it is if you want to have a sneaky peek, you'll have to let me know what you think ;)


    Lorra love! xx

  10. Love love love you zoe my favourite youtuber and blogger xxxxx

  11. G.

    You're so adorable!!! xx

  12. Number 7 is me all over too Zoe
    Alot of people think I'm rude/hostile because I'm just so incredibly shy around people I don't know…and the majority of my best friends now who think I'm a total freak, used to think I hated them! Funny how misconceptions work :P
    Loved your post, and you deserve only happy tears because I think you are super fab :)

  13. Ahh I live in Southampton, so just across the water from The Isle of Wight! Please let us know if you ever visit! :)

    Kirsti xx

  14. Lovely post Zoe! It really allows us readers to get to know you a little more haha! The pictures are so cute and quirky and just add to the post :) I too sometimes have hot chocolate for breakfast :P xx


  15. I love these posts at the moment. I've literally just posted mine :) Despite being 22 I still love a good potato smile and even refer to them as potato smileys, swear I'm a child at heart.

  16. At first I thought you had a giant ear in the first photo. HAHA.

  17. i loved this, and love keeping up to date with your blog! I still love the potato smiles too! delicious! x


  18. You are amazing!! We have a lot of things in common! Xx

  19. OOOH this is such a cute post!!!<3

    I can't wait for boot sales to start again too!

  21. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey, please more post like these! :)

  22. Amanda

    I did maypole dancing at primary school too haha! Think it might be a West Country thing xx

  23. amazing :)

  24. Excellent! :D I did one of these the other day and it was much easier than I expected.
    I am also SO excited about boot sales starting up…although I don't have any money to spend at them.


  25. As a Scottish person now living in Aberdeen I can't believe Leeds is the furthest north of the UK you have been! You should definitely visit Scotland sometime:)x

  26. some bootsales have all ready started but the weather isn't quite great yet. I'm sure my Dad went to the ones in Southwick and Frome last sunday? :) loving the post x

  27. Aimée

    Darn it! I REALLY want a cupcake from the Hummingbird Bakery now! They're amazing. Also, loving the crazy webcam photos! :)

    Aimée Xx

  28. Yet another great post, love #17 and #25 I'm exactly the same aha :) x

  29. Kelly

    Fab post I might do this :) x

  30. hehe i have looked at the top photo twice and cracked up the gap in your hair looks like you have a large ear! lovely post :) xx

  31. I also did knitting when I was in primary school! Country dancing is kind of hilarious hahaha I'm picturing it right now. Rain also gets me down so bad. Maybe I was born in the wrong country! I love your shirt by the way :) Haha hot chocolate for breakfast! I can imagine because when I drink hot chocolate, my stomach is full for so long. I don't need to eat till 1pm.

    Great post!


  32. Literally do the same thing on pretty much all of these! I love you Zoe. I am jealous of…everything! x

  33. Chloe

    i did my own version of this post yesterday! I think its really fun and a great way to find out things about someone :) I LOVE the potato smiles! havent had them in years! Also yay for no sad tears!

    Chloe xx


  34. I loved reading this !!


  35. Sarah

    I don't know if this is just a shop near me. But have you ever heard of Yankee Doddles? It's like a american candy shop they sell drinks and cereals as well xxx

  36. Heva

    I thought you had travelled allot ! Guess you travel between london and other places allot and not to other countries x


  37. Hi! :)
    when you come to Florida to get cereal, take them out of the box! I actually never get Lucky Charms, they seem a bit too sugary! :P
    If I were to come to the UK, I would probably stock up on Sleek palletes, collection 2000 concealers, and Barry M nail polishes. :)

  38. I can relate to number 5 so much. Please do more posts like these if possible, I love reading them :)

  39. Ahhhh Love you Zoe! Come to America and show me your makeup tips xx


  40. I always sing like beyonce when I'm on my own but just take the piss sing when I'm with anyone haha and hot chocolate for breakfast is the best! x

  41. Potato smileys are amazing! One of the best comfort foods. Im 25 and still buy potato alaphabet letters and spell out rude words. Far too cool! Xx

  42. I really want to do a blog post like this but i decided to do different one today, I love cupcakes and i would happily have one for breakfast, *pushes aside the hot chocolate*
    I have alot of beaches where i live, and i cant get enough of them. especially for photo opportunities, They can be amazing sunset time. Lovely post zoe!

    Pipp xx

  43. Fab Post – I swear we are actually the same person!!! I love ice lollies, and those potato faces, I suffer with panic attacks and anxiety, I love sprite, my handbag is totally minty like yours, I have 2 guinea pigs, I haven't flown for 12 years, I also HATE the sound of people eating like cattle to the extent that it makes me angry (did you know it's called 'Sound Sensitivity Syndrome'??), I am a total selective hearing person, I have size 3 troll feet, I can never wear swanky sunglasses because of my equally small head, I also haven't drunk alcohol since I was about 16, the list could go on FOREVER!

    You have inspired me to make my own blog: http://missvanillalime.blogspot.co.uk and I'm on youtube too! Your vids are my fave.

    I think I'll make my own 25 facts post!

    Thanks again! xxx

  44. Monica

    7 is definitely me too. I'm so shy around people I first meet, but eventually I'll act like a weirdo too hahaa.
    13 made me want a cupcake! Red velvet, please. With some hot chocolate, ahhh divine.
    Sunglasses don't fit me because of my small nose :( waah.


  45. Maria

    Zoe, do they have an Amerikandy store in England? They have them in Scotland and they sell pop tarts, lucky charms and stuff like that!

  46. AGREED! With the smiley potatoes! They taste delicious even though i'm nearly an adult now :) recently did a favourites video on my blog if anyone wants to hop over and read

  47. we have a sweet shop in my local town that's an american sweet shop and you can buy so many different american foods! including cereals like lucky charms! nerds! so much stuff that makes me just so happy! next time i go by i'll take a picture and post it! it's amazing:D stay happy Zoe, stay beautiful, be fearless! xo


  48. Alissa

  66. Joelle

    I've did the same tag last week and it will be up in a few days. Good to know you still eat potato smiles too. They make the world a better place!

  67. I'm the opposite, the rain instantly gives me this undescribable happiness, like nothing I've ever felt before, but the sun is hot and makes me sunburnt haha :) but it's ok if it's not too hot

  68. I collect Disney DVDs toooo! :)

  69. 2,3,6,7, 8,12,13,16,17,19,20,21,22,24,25 are all that applies to me too :D

  98. potato taste really good for me too…
    bruises, I have them all the times, major cause, hubby said I'm too clumsy that's why litle bruises love me… hahahah

  99. ZOE YOU ARE PERFECT I SWEAR. And okay for some reason I was being dumb and I thought that the space in your ponytail (on the first photo) where you can see the wall was a giant ear or something and I stared at for a good ten seconds, no joke. Hahaha. :)

  100. Yayy! Something to know you a little better! :D We're quite different although I too can't wait to have my own babies but I was hoping to have them a lot earlier. But considering I'm still enjoying my single life, I think it might take a while. Haha! Have a great day lovely!

  101. Zoe, all the best people are weird!x haha

  102. Kitteh

    AHA! I love the sunglasses comment.
    My head is super small as well which makes shopping for Sunglasses and Hats an impossible task.
    I find better luck with Guess Sunglasses although I wish I could just buy cheap ones.

  103. I love this!!! I feel we are so similar :) I'm tiny too! (4'11 at age 21! *blush). Anyway, I always look forward to your posts! You're awesome :P <3 xx

  104. After reading this post, I found out that we're a little similar to each other! :)

In the first photo it kind of looks like you have a giant ear, random I know but it made me laugh :')



  112. Elena

    whenever i go back to the us i bring soooooo many food.like all the american goodness i can't pick up where live and lucky charms are always something i go for…but nothing will ever be as good as cocoa pebbles. i would die for them.

  122. Haha love this ! No judgment on the cereal thing, I spend £8 on lucky charms in TKmaxx :/ xxx

  123. I looove the way you decribe yourself !!! It ins´t self-loving-like as much people would describe themselfs. One stupid fact about me is that I can open my eyes so much that they get huge as a golfball O.O XD
    XOXO Abby

  124. I used to suck my finger, this left a indentation on my hand (now gone) x

  125. Nataly

  126. Great post Zoe, really interesting. I have selective hearing too ;)

  127. Alix M

    I can relate to SOOO many of your points!! Hahaha especially the being a weirdo and the selective hearing ones… it can be a problemo. Hehe I will definitely do one of these in the near future, seems like fun :) Maybe in 2 posts time! Nice post Zoe :D

  129. Lara

    I'm so curious about those bootsales, I wish I could witness one of them! We have fact 25 in common, how many times I have to say "Sorry, what did you just say?" is unreal.


  130. Mia

    First moment – first photo – a large ear :DD
    I love this post. You are amazing, girl.
    And I have selective hearing too. :)
    xoxo, Mia

  131. I love it when you write more personal posts, they're the best ones in my opinion:')
    I also have absolutely THE WORST selective hearing ever, which annoys my parents especially haha:D Keep up the great posts, I love your blog<3


  132. 1. Only reply girls to this post?
    2. According to fact #2, you were born in the wrong country. You should be born in Spain.
    3. The use the term “properly drunk” was really funny.
    4. I disagree with fact #7. You do not seem shy in your videos.

  133. I love the #6.. that's awesome now i know its not just me like that lol.
    you are really have inspired me. I hope someday i could be like you (on the blog side of things like people reading your blogs) I would never think i could be big like you.
    Your truely inspiring to people.. you should be very proud of yourself.
    Well done for getting where you are now. (I hope i could follow my dreams but too scared to.)

    I would love it if you could go and check out my blog and tell me what you think of it..

  134. Amy

    I love the Isle of Wight too, I also have tons of happy childhood memories there, and have now dragged my boyfriend there for a holiday haha :)


  135. Megan G

    Love reading these sort of posts its nice to get to know the blogger behind the blog :)


  136. Potato smiles aren't fir kids, they're for adults ;) xxx

  137. I love your fact about bringing back loads of American sweet treats back when you go to Florida! Can't say I wouldn't like to do the same. I actually did the same post over on my blog & I'm holding a MAC giveaway xx

  138. Trys

    I really enjoy that "random facts about me" TAG :). And yours was as enjoyable as the rest of the ones I've seen :)

  139. Lucky Charms, delicious choice. You may want to consider some Fruit Loops as well? Hehe I love all kinds of cereal, I could eat it for any meal hahaha. I guess that's a little weird maybe but you agree that the best people are weird so I suppose… win!
    Your "25 facts" post inspired me to make my own if you want to see!

    Jenna (http://www.jennasmusings.com)

  140. Tara

    every time i go abroad i HAVE to go to the local grocery / supermarket go straight down the sweet/chocolate aisle and stock up you wouldn't believe the stuff we are missing out on…


  141. Émer

    Frigin love your blog Zoe. Nice of you to do abit more of a personal post, quite funny facts lol. I love disney and I can safely say The Lion King is my favourite film hahaha. I hope to have the disney classic collection like you too..


  142. Very cute, enjoyed the post! I guess I never gave a thought to other countries not having the same cereals we do here- so I found that very funny and interesting that the cereal is the thing you would bring an extra suitcase for!! – don't blame you though, they are quite addicting:)

  143. Lauren

    Hehe, great facts! I feel better around people I'm comfortable with. I'm a bit crazy then. I hate getting to know people, because I'm so shy


  144. Hahah numbers six and seven are exactly like me! Zoe you are my inspiration and because of you I've decided to write a blog dealing with confidence and self discovery! I just wrote my first post and it would make me so happy if you could check it out!http://livefearless01.blogspot.com/?m=0

  145. Oh my gosh, I luuurve potato smiles :D Your awesome x

  146. We are so similar it's scary! Loved this post Zoe xxx


  147. Jenni

    I'm probably ruining this lovely number 222 but I really like this post!
    It's so personal and fresh and kind of light-hearted, really inspiring!!
    I might be doing a list soon ;)

  188. Diana

    you're the definition of awesomeness hehe I <3 you

  189. I love the part about you being a weirdo when you're comfortable around someone, that's me too. That's how I make real friends probably…I guess the ones who can't handle my weirdness drift away and the nice ones just share in it.

  190. I do loads of those things too!!! I sing when nobody's listening, have hot chocolate for breakfast, sunny weather will make my day!! You are the inspiration to my blog, don't laugh, I'm still a beginner:P

  191. Hiiii, I loved everything about this 25 facts =) I have bad hearing but because an accident I had when I was younger and I used to play soccer, someone pushed me and my ear went onto one of the poles on the porter where the goalkeeper is supossed to be, well dang it, I hate that sometimes I dont hear people talking to me haha.

  192. I'm from the isle of wight :D x

  193. Zoe, if you're going away soon and have forgotten all things flying then you MUST remember that moisture is the key! The plane will dry out your skin something terrible, so bring lots of moisturiser, hand cream and eye cream, and drink loads of water. I'm probably preaching to the choir here but hey, just in case you didn't know :)

  194. i love reading all your post[:
    they are always so interesting lol
    i like how you havent cried all year well not out of sadness !i feel the same way about that, after reading your blog about your relationship an stuff it really got me thinking an it made me reevaluate how i go around life.
    also when it rain i get sleepy an i honestly cannot an will not go out ahah

  195. Debi

    Here in Torquay,Devon there is a shop that sells lucky charms:)))

  196. Zoe I hate sunglasses shopping too! It's so annoying-_- The bit about going to America and stocking up on American cereal and stuff just reminded me that there are two shops near me in Manchester that sell american sweets and things, so yeahhh, if you're ever in manchester, they're in Afflecks Palace and in piccadilly gardens;) Love watching your videos, I'm hoping to start my own channel after I've finished my GCSEs this summer (you've inspired me!) :') XO

  197. Sarah

    Hey Zoe! I've lived on the Isle of Wight my whole life and I love living in such a quiet and beautiful place! You're welcome down here anytime! :) xx

  198. Its basically when people get stuff that they don't use anymore and put it in there car and sell it :)

  215. im the same with mushrooms , the smell , the taste and the texture of mushrooms make me physically gag. haha

  216. Zoe it is so weird how me and you are alike, from sucking your thumb to smiley potatoes to selective hearing. Its so nice knowing I'm not the only one who experiences things like this. You're so perfect in every way. Please never change, I know its weird to love someone you've never met but …. I LOVE YOU. Please don't think I'm strange because I think that you're quite lovely! xx

  226. High five for pea-heads! I got one too, I have a child's bike helmet…thats how pea I am.

  227. It's so refreshing to see someone who blogs AND is a writer – too many blogs are just pictures! It's also nice to be following someone's musings my own age for once!If you fancy wetting your appetite for the travelling you plan on doing soon, check out my revamped blog following all my travels and move to Hong Kong in the summer…


  228. OMG i hate the smell of mushrooms as well!! btw ive never had lucky charms as well there like 10 quid in tesco!! are they even that nice?? do you get a cute little pixie as well as i love myself a good pixie <3 xo

  229. I don't know if any one has posted this yet, but there are over 300 comments and me and reading don't go hand in hand, but I have heard that if you tighten the screws on the sides of sunglasses, like the part that goes over your ears, the "arms?", will get tighter so they might fit you better. I have never tried it though.

  230. I like the point about eating potato SMILES :D You're so right: They taste amazing ;)

  244. The embarrassing thing for me is that I'm 18 and still suck my thumb when I'm not thinking of anything and relaxed.
