I guess some of you have already noticed on my blog and on social media that I tend not to put my face all over the place – I am blogging anonymously.
There is no particular reason behind this other than the fact that I am not yet ready to put myself fully out there ( I think this is something that is changing over time).
Now until then here are a few things that might help you all best understand who I am:
- I have 3 sisters and no brothers, my sisters are my soulmates, my best friends,my everything.
- I am a complete Foodie.
- I met my husband for the first time when we were just little kids ( our mums are best friends) and like to think they arranged the whole thing.
- I have been dairy free for 3 years now.
- I suffer from Vitiligo ( a skin condition) and Batters Syndrome (a Chronic kidney disorder).
- I have a slight obsession with Whales which my husband finds very funny considering I can’t swim and have a fear of drowning.
- I could happily eat Angry Fries every day.
- The saddest and most defining moment of my life was when I lost my father to cancer 13 yrs ago.
- Addicted to watching re-runs of Dawsons Creek, Friends and Ally Mcbeal.
- As a child I wanted to grow up to be a lawyer- once I started to study it at uni I changed my mind. I now work as a Management Accountant ( yep I did a complete 360).
- Most of my best friends don’t live in the same city or country as me hence I love Skype/Facetime and WhatsApp.
- I own 4 yrs worth of British Vogue copies…..and counting.
- I can’t stand chipped nail polish hence why I have learnt to give myself a manicure at home (going to get your nails done every fortnight can end up pretty expensive).
- My husband is my best friend and one of the most supportive, calm and sweetest humans I have or will ever meet.
- When I travel I tend to build my itinary around places that I would like to eat at.
- My go to drink is sparkling water.
- Loyalty is a big thing for me in all relationships.
- I live by the motto of “life is too short” therefore show love/kindness and let go of the past.
- I was lucky enough to grow up with parents who placed a lot of empahsis on education and equality between boys and girls , which is a rare thing considering they came from a muslim pakistani background. I will forever be thankful to them for bringing myself and my sisters to be strong, independent, educated and self -sustained women.
- I have been a Londoner for almost 10 years.
Hopefully you have enjoyed reading this break from the norm post and I look forward to hearing from you. Tell me, do you have anything that most people would not realise about you?
