Blogger Behind The Blog...

I've been blogging for a few months now and while I'm still a complete newbie compared to most, I feel like I'm really starting to get somewhere with this whole business and I'm really enjoying it! 
I love getting to know the blogger behind my favourite blogs whether it be on other social media platforms like Instagram (follow me here!) and Twitter (follow me here!) and also on their blogs but it's something I've not really done so today I thought I'd give you all a little more of an insight about me...

- As much as I wish my real name was Alice, my first name is actually Jayd! Alice is my lovely middle name though, hence where my blog name 'Always, Alice' comes from.

- I got engaged to my better half on my birthday last July and while I feel far to young and immature to be engaged and planning a wedding at only 22, it was probs the best decision of my life (cringe alert!)

- I have unbelievably short legs, despite being a pretty average 5"3. Jean shopping is hard work when even the petite range is too long...

- Sorry all you cat ladies out there, but I am TERRIFIED of cats. Weird, I know, but I'm totally a dog person.

- I have odd colour changing eyes! From the front they look blue and from a sideways glance and when I cry, they look green!

- I work full time behind the bar of a cute little pub with my other half and some of my best friends. It's an emotional rollercoaster at times but it's probably the best job I've ever had! Check out my "Tales From Behind The Bar" post... 

- I can't swim. Not well anyway - I can pretty much manage a length of the swimming pool done at a snails pace before I'm knackered.

- I dropped out of  my Fashion Design course at uni after 6 months and I don't regret a thing because so many amazing things have happened since then. It's not for everyone gals!

- I've never broken a bone bar one of my fingers on a drunken night out, despite having no coordination and being the clumsiest person known to man...

- I have a small tattoo of a peace symbol on my hip that I got done on my last day of being a teenager. It's shit but I love it!

- I've had my nose pierced since I was 14, but hardly anyone notices my little nose ring!

- I LOVE LOVE LOVEEEE spicy food. Extra hot Nandos come at me.

- Another weird fact; I hate bubble wrap and cling film. What even is it!?

- My nickname is Dumbo...I'm sure you can work out why!

Tell me a random fact about you in the comments below, and as always don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin' as I'm super close to 500 followers a little giveaway!

Always, Alice x

  4. I can't swim (well) ever, I'm a dog person, and I use my middle name for blogging instead of my first name (which is Rehanna) too. I feel like we're the same person, haha.

  5. really fab post! a lot of these facts are very similar to me, except my little legs are little-er im a measly 4ft 11' so i understand the pain of trouser/jean shopping xx Eloise|

  6. Nice to get to know you a bit more Lady! I couldn't swim well until my honeymoon last year, got lots of time in the pool. And I discovered my one random fact - I can't sink. Can't touch the bottom of the swimming pool, and needed extra weights to hold me down in scuba class!
