Hello everybody. Here are a few facts about me seeing as I'm new to this whole blogging malarkey. I genuinely struggled to come up with 25 things, but I got there eventually.

1. My nickname Charlie Lou comes from my first name Charlotte and my middle name Louise.
2. I lived in Ireland for 15 years in a small town called Wexford.
3. I have been a horse rider since I was 3 years old.
4. I have a scar on my forehead from an accident that happened when I was 2 (resulting in 15 stitches).
5. I grew up thinking that I was Harry Potter's cousin (because of my scar).
6. I don't have a favourite colour - it always depends on my mood. At the moment, it would probably be like a dark forest green.
7. My first concert was Britney Spears and I was 11.
8. I have my power boat licence.
9. I'm a coeliac. However, when I reached my early teens, I stopped following my diet and stunted my growth. I am 5'4".
10. I have always had dogs in my life (*warning* old picture!).

11. I grew up on a farm surrounded by animals.
12. I studied Business Information Systems in University and got a First.

13. I love cooking and baking (unfortunately, my boyfriend doesn't have much of a sweet tooth so I don't get to bake as often as I'd like).
14. I can't get enough avocado - I will eat it with everything.
15. My favourite high street store is probably Zara.
16. I have recently developed a love for ice skating.
17. Chai tea latte is my favourite non-alcoholic drink. Gin and tonic is probably my favourite alcoholic drink.

18. I'm hopeless at keeping house plants alive. I recently killed a cactus (I didn't even know that was possible! I only got it because I was told that they're easy to look after).
19. I have dislocated my little finger in a wet duvet cover.
20. My first album was Busted.
21. I'm jealous of all the Victoria's Secret models.
22. My entire family speak French apart from me as my school made me do German. So I would love to learn French!
23. I am a Scorpio (Nov 2)
24. I can't stand the cold. I'm pretty sure I'm solar powered!
25. In terms of career - I still have no idea what I want to do with my life.
