50 things all about me

Hello! I've been looking for a way to introduce myself to this little blog area, I had a long while away and now I'm back I feel as though must have a few different readers that weren't here before! I thought I'd share 50 different facts about me, so here we start...

1. My name is Shannon Woodfield 

2. I don’t have a middle name 

3. I am 20 years old (born 1997) 

4. I’m so pale my family say I’m ‘transparent’ and I use fake tan to bring me to ‘normal colour’ but people still make comments about how pale I am 

5. When I was 7 years old I started my first website where my mum helped me take photos of my hair and playing around with make up just for fun.

6. I grew up obsessed with rock music 

7. I played violin for 4 years but gave up when my teacher wouldn’t teach me ‘Pure Morning’ by Placebo 

8. I went to a few guitar lessons when I was 11, but gave up with my teacher and learnt almost everything I know from online tutorials and books 

9. When I was a kid my dream job was to be a writer and illustrator, and I’m now an illustrator with intentions of writing my own books one day 

10. I initially applied for A levels in English Lit, Psychology and Art&Design but when I went to my art interview I told the tutor I was dreading the other two subjects so he applied me for a full course in Art instead

17. I started this blog again when I was 19 and feel as though I’m working 100x harder on it and enjoying it more than ever. 

18. I’ve had acne for 10 years now and part of my aims for writing a beauty blog is to help other people deal with and cure their acne too. 

19. When I was 13 and reading beauty blogs, it used to make me feel really abnormal for not being able to afford all of the high-end brands that the top bloggers were writing about so whatever my income I will always write about drugstore and budget items too! 

20. I’ve never had a lot of friends, but I’ve recently realised I needed to cut out the most negative people out of my life, and now I have hardly any friends in real life. 

21. If I’m not with my boyfriend, I’m happiest when I’m working.

31. I can’t follow recipes, I just make everything up as I go along from remembering flavours and it always works out pretty well 

32. I have pretty strong dyslexia but I wouldn’t let it stop me doing anything – I feel the world is so much easier for people with learning difficulties now and I’m hugely grateful for that 

33. When I first met my boyfriend I was just really surprised to meet someone so kind and selfless, I’ve known him for a year and he’s never proved my first impressions to be wrong 

34. I don’t have a plan B for if my business doesn’t work out 

35. My favourite comfort food is home cooked lasagne – the microwave stuff just offends me
