Getting To Know Me

Hello lovelies,

For a while now I have been thinking about doing a getting to know me post on my blog but I wasn’t sure how to set it out. Then the other day I saw Imogen’s post (which I will link here and here is her Twitter!) and I thought it would be fun to do the ‘Fifty Random Questions Tag’ as well! I also thought it might be interesting for you to get to know me better!

    The spaghetti arm thing cracked me up 😂. I used to do latin dancing and our teacher often called us out on being spaghetti armed…

    I really liked this post, even tho i only just came across your blog today.

    Hi Rachel! This Q&A was super cute and I loved it! Great answers and you made me laugh out loud quite a few times. The bit about having weak arms like spaghetti and bungee jumping being a few horrid fears all rolled into one, I can completely relate too!
    Freshly baked cakes and scones always do smell absolutely beaut, don’t they?!
    I’d love to ask what it was that made you want to study nursing? <3
    Thanks for sharing this little Q&A.
