I was thinking the other day, that though I write a blog post nearly every week, you probably don’t know that much about me.
And with all the templates that have been going around insta this week, I thought I would share with you 22 random facts about me (as I am 22).
So here goes…

Eight – I suffer with a condition that make me faint a lot. I say suffer with a condition the doctors aren’t actually sure what causes it, but I have fainted since I was 12 some times up to 5 times a day. As I have got older I have learnt to manage it a lot better.
Nine – My shoes collections is over a 150 pairs of shoes. I think I should go to meetings… ‘Hi my name is Lauren and it has now been 2 days since I bought my last pairs of shoes’… Shoes are my thing and I just can’t help my self.
