A-Z of Me: A

You've probably seen this theme floating about all over the blogosphere. I really enjoy reading Kloe's really in depth posts (which you can find here) for each letter, as well all the awesome list style posts that people often do for this. I think it's a fantastic way to get to know the person behind the blog outside of their stylistic/beauty choices or fun experiences. So I decided to get in on the fun (naturally). I'll be posting a letter a week, every Sunday, I hope you find these interesting.


Aquarius – my starsign! I'm not a big believer in horoscopes or anything, and by not a big believer I mean I'm a total sceptic, but it's a part of who I am and I will admit that many of the traits generally associated with this sign (at least the ones that popped up in the first few google links I clicked) are traits that I recognise and associate with myself. So I guess I am more Aquarian than I realise, outside of just being born at the right time of year!

Amethyst – Okay it's my birthstone, but Amethyst is also one of my favourite gemstones regardless. I really love them. Apparently the stone can aid with addiction, grief and providing calm and balance, not sure how much of that I believe but none of it can hurt.

Antisocial – I'm a kind of antisocial person, I don't mean to be but I get really uncomfortable in big groups and loud spaces and really I'm pretty shy. All of this, plus a few other things, leads to me more often than not backing out of social events like parties even though I signed up with every intention of being there.

ASMR – It stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (which after much trying and failing actually has a wikipedia page now read it here). I'm sure I've mentioned this before but in case you missed it and don't want to read the wiki, ASMR is the term for thise tingles you get when you hear certain sounds. It's not sexual, as is the common mistake on youtube apparently, just pleasant and I find it extremely relaxing. I listen to the videos before I go to sleep/while I'm trying to sleep if it's a dodgy day or if I'm stressed out and it really helps.

Animals – I have always been an animal person more than a people person. When I was little I used to chase after sheep in the Yorkshire Dales because I wanted to hug them and be friends with them, and two of my favourite places to visit when we went to my grandparents house were Woburn Safari Park and Whipsnade Zoo. Even now if you stick me in a room with five people and three animals, I'll hang with the animals first. 

What are some of your A things?


  1. This is a great idea for a post! I'm antisocial too, haha. Somebody tried to talk to me today in a shop and it made me distressed ha.
