30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 2 – 20 Facts about me on Bellyfull Bajan

Hey everyone!

It is day 2 of my 30 day blog challenge and here are 20 facts about me:

  1. I am 23 years old.
  2. I am a Bajan (someone from Barbados in the Caribbean).
  3. I am also half Irish! (My Dad is from Ireland :))
  4. I am 5”2 … sorta.
  5. My middle name is Isabel, after my beautiful grandmother on my mother’s side.
  6. My favourite place to be as a child was in the kitchen with my grandmother and mother.
  7. I have one absolutely amazing older sister.
  8. I have a scar under my chin from when I was little and ran up some wet stairs and busted it right open.
  9. When I was younger I wanted to be a ballerina or a theatre dancer.
  10. I used to have a massive gap between my front teeth, before my wisdom teeth grew in.
  11. I went to Queen’s College Secondary School and Barbados Community College, where I met some awesome role models that in one way or another still influence me and my decisions. (Mrs McConney and Ms Osbourne)
  12. I bruise easily … no seriously, it is ridiculous.
  13. I have a tattoo on my ankle of a smiling sun. I got it when I was 18 and just before I left home for university. I named her Calypso, after the sea nymph in Greek mythology and after the genre of music native to the Caribbean. She keeps me sane on days when homesickness seems a bit too hard.
  14. When I am upset I cook – Lasagna is the best cure ever!
  15. My favourite colour is aqua marine blue (basically the colour of the Caribbean sea).
  16. I moved to London in 2013 with friends from University.
  17. My accent changes depending on who I am talking to – one of the various side effects of being an international student, you become a bit of a chameleon.
  18. I follow a vegetarian diet 4 days a week.
  19. I have a wall of cards from my Mum that depict different scenery from Barbados.
  20. The kitchen is still my favourite place to be, it is my haven.

Have a beautiful day and keep smiling!
