25 Random Facts About Me

I have recently been invited to join Southern Belle Bloggers. As I'm sure you can imagine, it's a group of ladies blogging from the south :) Even if you aren't from the south, you are still welcome to join. They're on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. They've also got a closed facebook group as well!

I'm really happy that I've found this community, it's helped me grow in the blogger community and I get to meet local bloggers! One of the bloggers I've met in the group has inspired me to post 25 random facts about myself. You can check out her original post here.

Since my blog is still pretty new, I wanted to tell you a little bit more about myself. You learned a little about me on my about page, but these are all different facts!

  1. Pet tarantula!! No way!! eeekkk!! Well I created my list to share and if there is one thing we are opposites in it is in the tarantula department.
    this took me way longer than I expected it too


    1. I love all things nature! I've held more snakes than I can count and I've held a tarantula once. I really didn't think it would be so hard to write about myself haha. I just read your post and I loved it!

  2. I love your post, Ivy! The timing was perfect, since I actually had an "about me" post already scheduled on my editorial calendar for today! :)



    1. Thank you! That's awesome that you already scheduled it! It's funny how things work out :) I just checked out your post and I'm about to leave a comment on your page!

  3. Great post! My favourite colour is purple too and one of my top favourite films is Labyrinth! Also can't beat a bit of Pokémon.

    1. Thank you! I have always loved purple 😊 It makes me so happy that someone else likes the Labyrinth! I'm only 20 so no one my age really knows about the movie, and if they've seen it they don't like it. I can't even get my husband to watch it with me 😂

  4. Thank you! By your username I assume you write as well. Do you have a blog or something that I could read?
