Currently Listening to joromi by simi 

So, last week Haleema of did this post and as the copy cat that I am, I decided to do something similar. Plus remember when I wrote my bucket list? Everyone loved that post so I thought I’d make this one. If you haven’t seen that post or would like to read it again, click Here. No long talk, I’ll just get right to it.

  • My parents are divorced and I live with my mom, most of the time.


  • My favorite color is Yellow and pink. (Girly, I know) but…


  • I’m a girly girl, I love makeup and all girly stuffs, please, I’m not one of those people that don’t care about stuff. I pay attention to details, a lot.


  • People always think am a snob. But those who know me better, know that I’m actually a very nice carefree person. I know it’s a weird thing to say about myself but I’m actually very kind. + Am a talkative so it’s kinda hard to be a snob when you love to talk.


  • I love shoes and bags. I hoard them. LOL. I could open a mini thrift store with my collection. So if you want to give me a gift, you can start with them.


  • I also love chocolates and books. They are my next best things. I actually prefer reading to watching movies. So Again, if there’s need to buy me a present.


  • I have eight piercing on my body. Five are on my ears, one on my nose and the rest are else where.


  • I own at least less than half a dozen businesses. (And am still broke)

  • Half of my family members are Christians.


  • I just recently began to love the hijab, am a struggling hijabi.


  • I have a cat. And he is the baby of the house. His name is pumpkin.


  • I’m a very emotional person, i get hurt easily. + I cry like it’s the end of the world when I’m hurt.


  • I am a banker lol (that doesn’t work in a bank) I hate banks cause of the long hours.


  • I was diagnosed and treated for bi polar in 2013


  • I can’t dance even if a gun was pointed at me


  • I have been trying to lose weight but I’m very lazy and i am addicted to ice cream and sweets so not possible.
