50 Random Facts About Me

I’m not all that great at putting too much personal stuff out there on this blog, but I guess after blogging for four years it might be nice to share a few little things about me – and I’ve been loving reading these ’50 Facts’ so here goes my only little version… hopefully there’s a few little interesting things in there that you might not already know!

9. Due to point 6 Louisiana is without a doubt my favourite US State.
10. I’ve been living in London since 2006.

    What do you miss the most about America? 🙂

    • March 9, 2013 / 9:19 am

      Mostly the people, some of my best friends and favourite people are those I met in Louisiana. But I also miss the weather, the general friendliness, the food (oh God, the food was so good!) and the overall can-do attitude of everyone. Oh, and Tony’s Cajun Seasoning! I could go on… but that’s a few of the things I miss about America!

    Louisiana is indeed the best US State! I love and miss their crawfish, the Saints, the fact that it’s like 90 procent of the year sunny, New Orleans, Mardi Gras, their “WHO DAT”, their “y’all”, all their great seasoning such as “Slap Ya Mama”/”Punch Ya Daddy” and most of all I miss their Southern friendliness. I spent a year in Louisiana as well, as an exchange student in high school. I went to a high school in Slidell, which is like a half an hour from New Orleans and an hour and a half from Baton Rouge. Loads of my American friends went to LSU when they graduated and I wished so bad I could go there as well! I miss Louisiana very much, I went last summer to visit again aaaand I am going back in September! 🙂

    Haha, and I love Beauty and the Beast as well! When I was little I could watch that movie, together with Snowwhite, oooover and over!

    Great post! 🙂

    I don’t understand the Robert Pattinson obsession either, he’s so miserable and weedy!

    I’ve just posted a nail polish collection and FOTD on Black & Gold!
