I spotted this idea whilst I was doing a blog comment swap yesterday and thought it was a great way to get to know someone. When I started this earlier I didn’t realise that 26 is actually quite a lot of things to think up (and some of them are a bit sketchy) but hey, it was more fun than studying. Hope you enjoy reading more about me. Let’s go!
A is for… Acoustic Guitar
I’ve been teaching myself guitar for a few years now. I can play a wide variety of songs from Noel Gallagher to Oasis tunes.
B is for… Beaches
I’m lucky that I only live half hour from the seaside. I love walks along the beach – something about the sea and sand in your shoes is so therapeutic. You can read about my recent trip to Bournemouth Beach here.
C is for… Chimichanga
This is where Shaun and I went on our first foodie date. He pretended to like sweet potato fries to impress me and only confessed that he didn’t about 8 months later.
D is for… Dr. Martens
Dr. Martens are my favourite kinda footwear. These are my floral docs I’ve been pretty much living in for about two years.
E is for… Eat, Pray, Love
This film is one of my absolutely favourites. I aspire to be Liz Gilbert where she just packs up her life and goes travelling. I’d definitely consider it as long as I could get some cat passports.
F is for… Fries (Sweet Potato)
Oh yes. You have probably already guessed that I have a little obsession with sweet potato fries.
G is for… Greece
If you read my recent post on my Greece Travel Scrapbook, you’ll know I quite like Greek islands. I have visited seven so far and can’t wait to visit them all… only another 5,993 to go…
H is for… Hello Bexa
How could I not mention blogging! I started this blog in October 2017 and has fast become one of my favourite things to do. I’m excited to see where 2018 takes me and this little space of internet I call Hello Bexa.
I is for… Instagram
Well, not really Instagram at all but more so photography, but I’ve already got a P. Taking photos has always been a passion of mine – I have a hard-drive jam packed of images from well, when I first started taking photos. I’ve recently got a new camera for Christmas (thanks Dad) so trying to teach myself new skills.
J is for… Journalling
I’m a bit of a planner nerd and have a love for pretty notebooks and stationery. Click here to read more about my journalling.
K is for… Kittens
Simba and Zazu as kittens when they actually liked each other (4 years ago). How ridiculously cute is this.
L is for… Lazy Sundays
Just wanted an excuse to put this picture in really. But lazy Sunday’s reading and catching up with blogs are the best. Sunday’s also include a roast dinner with my family which is always nice. Don’t forget to check out my Sunday Blog Swap on Twitter – it’s my pinned tweet all day and you can share your latest posts and comment on others. It’s all good fun.
M is for… Massages
I just wanted to slip this one in, just in case any Spa’s or luxury hotels somehow find this post and wanted to offer me some free treatments in exchange for a review. I’m joking! Or am I? (My inbox is always open…)
N is for… NOFX, No Use For A Name (& other punk bands)
I think I’m forever a punk girl at heart. I spent my younger years with short emo hair, piercings, listening to angry music and generally being rebellious. I’m still pretty much the same, except now I’ve taken all my piercings out.
O is for… Only Fools And Horses
Ha ha, last year Shaun and I watched every single Only Fools And Horses episode ever made. It only took us about half a year, but time well spent in my opinion as Shaun can now do an excellent Boycie impression.
P is for… Postcards
Every time I go on holiday, I always make sure I pick up a few postcards for my scrapbook. I’m a bit sentimental like that. P is also for… puns! My brain is 90% song lyrics and 10% trying to think up funny puns.
Q is for… Quotes (Motivational)
I do like motivational quotes, the cheesier the better in my opinion. I have recently brought a print which says ‘Don’t Quit Your Daydream’ and think it’s brilliant.
R is for… Revival
I’ve been loving Eminem’s new album recently and think it’s deserves a mention. It’s fantastic gym motivation. I’m pretty sure I burn more calories when I listen to Eminem. If you haven’t already heard it, go listen and turn it up. My favourite tracks are Heat, River, Nowhere Fast, Tragic Endings, ahh so many great tracks.
S is for… Simba (and Shaun)
Or if Shaun is reading this, that should read Shaun (and Simba). Simba is my very helpful blogging buddy (see photographic evidence). And Shaun always leaves me lovely comments and I don’t even have to pester him (much).
T is for… Tea
I’m a self-confessed tea addict. I go through my days in a Yorkshire Tea Caffeinated Haze but it does wonders for productivity.
U is for… University
I’m currently studying full time for a MSc in Science with The Open University whilst I figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I’ve been studying with them for years and got my Health Science degree through them too. It’s a great way to gain qualifications and pretend you are doing something important with your life. Check out my first ever post on Open Uni Study Tips.
V is for… Visiting Different Places
I love grabbing my camera (and Shaun) and going off to visit different towns. Recent adventures have included Bath, Brighton & Bournemouth. Ha ha, it looks like I only visit places beginning with B. Where next? Bognor?
W is for… Wispa Golds
I struggled with W then I remembered my love of Wispa Golds. I mean Wispas are good but adding a layer of caramel is absolute genius.
X is for… Xercise
As you can see I also struggled with X, hah. Oh well, here is a shameless plug for 6 Ways To Stay Motivated With Your Fitness Goals.
Y is for… Yoga
Yoga is awesome and has so many amazing benefits. I am currently doing the 30 Day Yoga With Adriene series called True which is a great way to start the year with positivity and flexible legs. Click here to read 10 Awesome Benefits of Yoga.
Z is for… Zazu
Last but by no means least, it’s Simba’s brother from another fluffy mother. Zazu is my funny little cat who only seems to like me and is petrified of the letter box, the window cleaner, my Dr. Martens, my mum, walnuts, the vets, Shaun’s slippers, the printer, wrapping paper… I could go on. Bless him.
I hope you enjoyed reading a bit more about me. If you do your own, leave me your links, I’d love to read more about my fellow bloggers!
