10 Day You Challenge: Ten secrets

Hey guys,

I recently came across this blogging challenge whilst catching up on blogs I follow, and thought it would be fun to join in and share a little more about myself with you. Who's going to join me?

Day 1: Ten Secrets

Well, if I told you them they wouldn't be secrets, would they? Oh, alright...

1.  I'm naturally a brunette.
2. I didn't start dyeing my hair until I was twenty-five. I swore I wouldn't until my hair turned grey, but I woke up one morning and felt the need to go red.
3. I have very, very poor eyesight. I'm so short-sighted I have to wear glasses/contacts every waking moment to be able to see, and I can't get contact lenses strong enough for my prescription.
4. I can't drive. Mostly because of financial reasons. It's on my list of things to achieve once I'm back to good health and able to work again.
5. I've never read the Twilight saga.
6. I only learned how to file my nails this year. Yes, I'm twenty-seven! My nails were always brittle and short from working hard and getting covered in dust and dirt; which meant I was constantly washing my hands and my nails paid the price.
7. I've never tried coffee.
8. I don't own a pair of heels.
9. I've suffered with depression for at least a decade.
10. I hated my freckles until I was seventeen. Mainly because people used them as a reason to pick on me. I looked different to most people, and I hated that. I just wanted to blend in. I soon realised I preferred being myself and not following the crowd. I love my freckles now.

I hope some of you will do this challenge with me, so we can learn more about each other!



  1. This is such a cute idea :) Here's my first post:

    (I'm also a natural brunette that now dyes her hair and that's blind without her contact lenses and cannot drive!)

    1. I'm glad you decided to join in Laura! Seems we have a lot in common!

  2. I'll do this next week :) x

    1. I look forward to reading it! x

  3. Great idea, I'm nosey and love people secrets lol.
    I can't believe you've never tried coffee!
    I suffer with depression myself and it's awful but it's so refreshing to see bloggers talking about it and breaking the taboo x

    1. Me too!
      I honestly don't know why I haven't!
      It's more common than people realise, and I don't think people should be made to feel ashamed of their feelings. Let's break the taboo! x

  4. this is a cool challenge, i think i'd like to do this :) i can't drive either and you're brave for speaking up about having depression, kudos to you. xxx

    1. You really should! People seem to look at me like there's something wrong with me when I say I can't drive, but it seems like there's a lot of us out there who don't! Thanks Hannah. I'm in a good place right now, but I don't think depression should be hidden away like it's something to be ashamed of because it's not! xx

  5. I love this idea and have decided to join in! :)

    1. Yay! I'm glad you've decided to join in! :)
