15 Day Challenge

So I know I’m in the middle of a 30 days of Blogging challenge (a person challenge) but I’ve also decided to partake in a challenge called the 15 Day Challenge by Sarah @ Life of Love.

Depending on the day and how I’m feeling, I think I will do this in connection with my 30 days of blogging. So if I feel like writing about something else, there might be 2 posts a day (the 15 challenge prompt and what I want to write) but on the days where I can’t think of anything to write about, my 15 day challenge prompt will be my main entry. Get it? It’s not important, the only thing you need to know is that for the next 15 days of my 30 challenge, I WILL have something to write about!

Life of Love


So as it is day one, the prompt is….*drumroll* FIFTEEN fun facts about me!

1. I was born in South Africa.
2. I’ve been scared of Dolls for…a really long time.
3. I have 3 visible scars (Lip, Ear & Index Finger).
4. I’ve had my belly button pierced 3 times, but only 2 piercing holes remain.
5. I hated eating in public as a teenager, not because of weight issues, I just didn’t like feeling like people were watching me.
6. When I was little, I couldn’t wait to be an adult so I could buy “100 Happy Meals” and eat them all (never going to happen).
7. I can eat a JalapeƱo without any problem.
8. I had braces when I was 12. Actually, that’s not a fun fact, that was torture.
9. I use to love hats growing up. I ruined my mothers wedding hat and I loved to explore my grandmothers old hat collection.
10. I started my Primary School Netball team because I hated Gymnastics and the soccer team was too selective and they were the only two options at the time.
11. I use to love Pumpkin, then I hated it and now I love it again.
12. I can’t eat red apples without wanting to amputate my stomach afterward.
13. I skied down one of the highest mountains in New Zealand, without ski poles. And I was 11.
14. I love the smell of a good coffee. I just can’t stand the taste of ANY coffee.
15. My favourite scent is Cherry Blossom perfume.


Ta-Da. That’s 15 fun but random facts about me. Anything I should know about you?


  1. DUDE. I still hate eating in public (I can deal with it at restaurants, but food courts freak me out) for the same reason.

    And right there with you on #14. Coffee = gagorama. The SMELL of coffee = OMG SO GOOD.

    1. I'm kind of glad I don't drink coffee. Sometimes I feel like I'm missing out on something, but other times I'm happy with my hot chocolate or tea.

      I went to a buffet on Saturday and it did not help the slightest that a woman kept staring at me. It was making me nervous as hell.

  2. I totally agree, the smell of coffee is amazing (but I also like the taste). SO weird that red apples hurt your stomach...do green apples do the same?

    Thanks for linking up!


    1. Actually, I need to do a bit of an "experiment" with the apple thing because I think it MIGHT just be the chemicals that supermarkets use to make their apples appear shiny.

      Thanks for your comment! :)

  3. I don't mind the smell of coffee, but I won't drink anything that has any coffee flavor to it. And braces ARE torture--I like have straight teeth though.

    1. I agree. While I didn't like having braces at the time, the result really was worth it. Life would have been a lot harder for me if I hadn't had braces at a young age.

      I can't even eat chocolate desserts if there is a hint of coffee...it's just so bitter or something...

      Thanks for your comment!

  4. great facts!

    born in south africa,how neat :)

    cute blog!

  5. I'm the same way with coffee! I really want to start liking it, though, just for the staying-awake-in-the-morning-ness of it.

    You're right. Braces = no fun.

    1. Exactly, or during exam time when I really need to stay awake and study. I'm glad I don't drink it, but there have been times where I could really use the burst of energy.

      Thanks for your comment! :)
