15 random facts about me

Time for something different today... In the year that I've been blogging, I've always tried to add a personal touch to reviews or blog posts, but I feel like I've never really told you about myself. This is going to change right now! The past few weeks I wrote down a list of 'random facts'. I'm not saying they'll necessarily help you to get to know me better as a person, but it sure was fun to think about things to write about! I actually wanted to 'premiere' my first video on Modest Mix and literally tell you about myself, but the past weeks have been so busy with finals that I had to postpone that idea for now. Without further ado, it's time to get awkward!

1- I was named Alyssa after the actress Alyssa Milano. Apparently she was very hip at the time! (Fun to know: My friends started calling me Lys when I was 10.)
2- I really like wearing nail polish. My nail polish collection is quite impressive and I still can't stop buying them!
3- I don't like coffee. Tea, however, YES.
4- My grandparents used to have a shop in the city where they sold mainly fruit and vegetables, but also beverages, ice cream and other foods. It was such a cute shop. They sold it when I was 4 and moved into the house next to ours, where they lived until I was 18 or 19 years old.
5- I am a straw biter.
6- My earlobes are stretched to 20 mm. They're currently the only piercings I have. Besides that, I've had my tongue, nape, helix and collarbones pierced.
7- My favourite TV show when I was a kid was Dragonball Z. (Pokémon deserves a mention too! I will love Pokémon forever.)
8- I wore glasses until I had eye surgery at the age of 6. It's the only surgery I've had.
9- I hate talking on the phone, which is weird, because I usually talk a lot.
10- My shoes of choice will always be sneakers. I feel awkward when I'm wearing high heels because I'm not used to it.
11- I do not drink alcohol or smoke.
12- It may not seem like it, but I'm a perfectionist. See how the angle of the picture in this blog post is slightly off? It's killing me.
13- I never ever ever want to go bungee jumping, skydiving or do any activity similar to it. The thought of 'falling' in the sky scares me so much.
14- I am so pale, my own family asks me if I'm feeling ill all the time.
15- I really want to attend a baseball game in the US someday. Must be so cool!

And here you have it... 15 random facts about me. I have so much more to tell you about (maybe a Random Facts - Part 2 would be a good idea?), but for now I hope you liked reading about the person behind this blog!

Because I also want to learn more about you, my readers, I thought it would be fun if you wrote something about yourself in the comments: What is the funniest thing that has ever happened to you? What is your favourite movie? Do you prefer Skittles or Jelly Beans? Tell me anything you like!

  2. Oh we have quite a few things in common :-) I'm a total perfectionist too, sometimes a bit too much actually. I also don't like talking on the phone. Whenever someone calls me I'm like ughhh do I have to answer this? I love your name by the way.

    1. That's exactly how I feel about it too! I'm fine talking to family or some friends, but besides that, hell no... And thank you! :)

  3. Whoa you used to have a lot of piercings! That's fun to know! I only have regular pierced ears. I am a total wimp. I don't think I can go through anything else! I have a bit of OCD as well. If you didn't mention the "off" angle, I wouldn't have seen it. Now that I know it's off, it's driving me nuts as well LOL

  4. Even though, I have come across your blog for the first time, it's good to know more about you :)
