10 Facts About Me | #TeenBlogSeries Week 1

Teen Bloggers Anouska Millar and Beth have decided to start a project called #TeenBlogSeries. Its aim is to bring together lots of the teens/young adults in the blogging community. For the next ten consecutive weeks, over 80 bloggers will be writing every Monday at 6:30pm about many different things, all beauty, lifestyle or fashion related. You can view everyones posts by going to the hashtag on twitter "TeenBlogSeries". If you would like to supply products for the giveaway, get involved, or have any questions, please email:

So the #TeenBlogSeries (you can read more about that here!) starts today, which means there will be a new post for the next 10 Mondays! Each week there will be a different topic which myself and around 70 other bloggers will be talking about, the topic for this week is '10 Facts About Me'. Hopefully this post will give you a little insight into my life and you can all get to know me a bit better! Here goes:

1. My name is Rebecca, but everyone calls me Becca, and I am 16 years old, meaning that I will be starting my first day in Sixth Form next week (how is summer nearly over already!?)
2. I am one of four daughters on my Dads side, but my Mums only child meaning I get the best of both worlds as I have siblings but I am also an only child! Although, my 3 sisters are all in their 30s we get along really well.
3. Since I was born I have lived in 11 houses, my favourite being a Bed and Breakfast which my Mum owned, it had 3 guest rooms, 7 toilets,a hidden stairway, a real bar and a ton of land, which was great fun to play in when there were other kids staying. I could often be found behind the bar making mocktails whilst my mum made cocktails for the guests, or playing darts and pool in the 'pub'!
4. I was an aunty from the age of 5 and I now have 2 nephews, 2 nieces and 2 step-nephews, I come from a really big family with over 40 direct cousins so you can imagine Christmas gets a bit crazy (not to mention expensive!)
5. I am a lip balm hoarder, I can never go anywhere without lip balm and even though I literally have a draw full of different lip balms, I keep buying more! My collection is made up of different colours, scents and packaging including 8 baby lips, 2 eos, about 20 lip smackers and 15 different tins, I think I have a minor problem...
6. After year of growing my hair long I decided I wanted a change and have recently chopped off 10 inches off to donate to the Little Princess Trust, you can read all about that here!
7. I am a big believer in dreams, and I hope that in the future I can be working in the media industry, I would love to work in television, radio and journalism in particularly entertainment interviewer or beauty writer. I would love to be able to attended events (award show or film premiere would be my dream) and basically one up my blogging game making a living by doing something I love!
8. I'm very sentimental and have bags and boxes full of the randomest things that all have a memory or strange story behind it, my collection includes a vimto lollipop wrapper from a huge family meal, the tag of the first item of clothing I bought with my own money and about 20 stamps from different letters and parcels.
9. I would love to live abroad however, I could never leave my family for too long and I would miss all of the little quintessentially British things especially a real cup of tea! However, I am hoping to Au Pair in America during my gap year after sixth form!
10. Talking of tea, I am addicted, like literally addicted. If I don't have a cup in the morning I will have a killer headache for the rest of the day. I tend to drink between 2-7 cups a day depending on whether I am at school and what the weather is like. Now I am going into sixth form we have a kettle and hot drinks vending machine so my addiction is definetley going to get worse!
That was a lot harder than it should have been, it literally took me 5 days to think of 10 facts! Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this first post in the Teen Blog Series and hopefully you got to know me more, leave your links in the comments below if you're taking part, I would love to read your posts!
