10 THINGS YOU PROBABLY DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT ME

10 facts about paige maria you didn't know

Recenlty, I've had a bit of a creative block. All aspects of my creative life has been put on the back burner, this includes my blog, instagram, even my uni degree. It happens to the best of us, but I've felt that coat of stress creep up on me slowly, and my fingers have been twitching over the keyboard almost every hour. When I can't think, I usually mindlessly do odd little things, like practicing
dancing in the mirror. Whilst I was busting a move, I finally decided to just relax on the "super amazing blog post" front and just give you something a little different - a list of things you probably didn't know about me.

I AM A LAZY PERFECTIONIST
I actually have quite high standards. I need things to be done a certain way and looking a certain way, if I feel I can not achieve that level of standard, I just flat out will no attempt it. Honestly, I can't afford my taste in fashion and interior, so I slack off on styling and cleaning so it won't stress me out, but truthfully that just stresses me out more.  

I AM OBSESSED WITH BEES
I love bees. I love what they do for our planet, what they make for our toast and teas, and what they look like. I even love how they sound. Yes, I have been stung by a bee before, and it absolutely HURT! But that won't stop me from getting a bee necklace and a bee tattoo. 

I AM A QUALIFIED CHILDCARE EDUCATOR
I have worked in a childcare centre and received my qualification. Whilst I loved getting to cuddle babies and watch children explore this new big world around them, it's just not the career for me.

I HAVE AN IRRATIONAL FEAR OF CATERPILLARS
I don't know why, I don't know when it begun. I really don't like them.

I HAD AN EATING DISORDER
It all begun at the age of 8. There isn't really a name for it, the doctors were a bit stumped, I just could not chew food. It usually took me about 2 hours to eat a banana, and I often just decided not to eat because it caused me stress. To this day I still struggle with food. I stop eating when I'm stressed, and I have a massive problem with textures. 

I AM A MAJOR STRESS HEAD
As much as I seem calm and collected on instagram, it's not always the case. I stress out quite a fair bit, it usually goes hand in hand with my perfectionism. 

I HAVE BEEN ON ANTI-DEPRESSANTS
Now, I believe there is no shame in being on anti-depressants. At one point in my life, I relied on them to stay afloat. Whilst it's true I have not been on any medication for a year now and have been managing my mental health through diet and yoga, I still have bad days, and I have a script just in case I may need that extra help.

I AM NATURALLY BLONDE
My current hair is copper, but most people know me as a brunette.. The truth is I am a natural blonde. I was born with whitish/blonde hair that used to go in ringlets. I dyed it brown when I was 13 and from there I've had blue, pink, black, green, purple, and now orange. I get a little restless when I haven't changed my hair in a while.

I DON'T REALLY LIKE SWEETS
I am a savoury and spicey girl through and through. Give me salty chips and beef chilli over ice-cream and chocolate any day.

I DON'T LIKE COFFEE
I’m not a huge fan of coffee. It tastes quite bitter to me, and the caffeine makes me feel irritable. I usually go for herbal teas, but sometimes I get a hot mocha, which let's be honest probably contains more sugar than coffee.

I WANT TO BE A MUM
I love kids.  I started getting baby fever in my teens. My older sister and her husband had their first baby when I was around 15 and I just remember instantly falling in love. I spent the rest of my teens doting on my nephews like crazy. I have been ready to have my own children for about 2 years now, and whilst I don't believe in the 'perfect time', I know it will happen when the time is right.


There you go, some juicy facts all about me. Can you relate to any of these?

With love, Paige. xx
