Five noticeable things

Beautiful Mama Sonia over at Love, life and hiccups, has nominated me to take part in this fun version of the versatile bloggers awards, thank you Sonia. So here they are... Five things you might notice about me if you met me in real life.

My height - At 5ft 10inches (178cm), I'm fairly tall. Add to this height, the fact I have a love of all shoes with a whopping heel. Stilettos, wedges, platforms... I've done them all. I can run, jump and dance all night in heels. Kinda silly when I'm already a bit of a bean pole.

My wonky-near-non-existent-eyebrow - My left eyebrow is partially missing. Partly because I pluck it to within an inch of it's life, but partly because I had a rather large freckle (ok, mole) removed from it a few years ago, which has completely skewed the hairs, so they sprout off at all angles. It is seriously easier just to pencil the brow in... much like the lovely Shar at Mum on the Run.

I enjoy a chat - Apparently I started talking early, something silly like 12 months of age. It's fair to say, I haven't stopped for breath since. Every school report on record mentioned my tendency to chit chat and in high school, it actually used to get me into a bit of trouble. This talent has followed me through life and I will literally strike up a conversation with anyone... which has also been known to get me into trouble. If I meet up with a fellow talker/s, there is no such thing as a 'quick' chat.

I don't wear earrings - in fact my ears have never been pierced. My Dad was super strict when I was younger and wouldn't allow me to have them done. By the time I could make the decision for myself, I didn't want to anymore. Now I'm so used to life without them, I don't know what I'm missing out on. Though I do sometimes think I could be working more diamonds and precious gems into my jewellery collection if I wore earrings.

I do things quickly - I'm built with a mad propensity to rush, hurry, get things done. I walk fast, eat fast and as per point 3, often talk fast. Something I am trying to modify, because really it can't be good for me. I actually don't even realise I'm doing these things most of the time, until someone brings it to my attention.

Now, to pass the baton on to 5 other gorgeous bloggers out there, who may choose or choose not to take part. Totally up to them, no pressure lovely ladies.

Shar @ Mum on the Run

  1. Oh I know you and I would talk the legs off a chair if we ever got together in the real world! I too like to chat and had many school reports that said 'a bit talkative at times'. Yeh, they weren't joking!

    Lovely to know more about you Jules. xo

  2. Ah, loving this, Julie! And BTW you are posting this unusually early, my fellow Night Owl ☺. Whilst I'm a shortie and have normal eyebrows and pierced ears, I know we'll never run out of things to chat about when we finally meet! J x

  3. Hahaha...nothing wrong with a bit of eyebrow pencil...I often ask hubby after swimming...Are my eyebrows still on? or wait..let me put my eyebrows on

    The price we pay for overplucking! lol x

  4. You are tall...Im only 163cm... lols

  5. I loved this little extra insight into you.
    I am caught out by how slooowly some people walk! Poor Magoo has even learnt to walk fast. When we took his little friend to the zoo, I thought I would burst with the desire to just pick her up and get moving all the time!!!
    Thank you for the handover - will do.

  6. Thanks for sharing. Don't change a thing its what makes YOU!!! you... Cheers SpecialK XoXo

  7. Lovely to find out a little more about you!
    Thanks for nominating me! I am hopeless at doing these things, but will do my best ;) xx

  8. I would never have guessed that you were that tall - I am 6ft so I love finding tall gals - especially ones brave enough to wear heels. Love that!!

  9. Do you know I totally didnt picture you as being tall. How strange is it when you have an image in your head that is so wrong.
    We are sooo alike on points 3 and 5. I am such a havachat girl and I am always rushing to get things done. When I get an idea I have to do it like NOW!
    Thanks for playing along lovely :) xx

  10. Oh I love this thank you so much for this great award I have posted my 5 things. Wow you are tall oh I love a good conversation too we could talk forever my friend and I can't wait to meet you, thanks again lovely have a great weekend.

    Always Wendy

  11. Had a laugh reading your 5 things - if you talk, walk & eat fast that's why you're skinny - on the move, no time to let to the fat cells can't settle in!!! I'm a bit the same - happiest when I'm busy & and on the go - but I'm only 5' 2" and 3/4 so I'm on the other end of the scale and I really need those heels!
    Congrats on the award!
