(apologies for the awkward squinty photo but this is the best I have)
I’ve felt a little disheartened with my blog recently and I’ve been thinking about the direction its headed in and I’m not excited about it. I refer to my blog as a Fashion (kind of) and Lifestyle blog, but I don’t think it really is that. So after a few days brewing over it I realised how truthfully you all don’t know too much about me. So here I am today, putting a little more Alice into Alice’s Wonder Emporium.
I thought the best way to get to know me a little better was to give you a few pointless facts about myself and the things I like. I love reading these posts about other people, probably because i’m nosey as hell.
I volunteer one day a week in my local charity shop and have done since September 2013 and I bloody love it! - I buy all of the books
I have a habit of randomly bursting into song, especially if somebody says a certain phrase - I will find a song that relates to it and sing it out loud, a lot. I inherited that skill from my Grandfather
I once appeared on an episode of Animal Hospital (kind of) during a roadshow episode where you can see my tiny head veering itself around a corner into the shot.
I am obsessed with sausage dogs and can’t wait to have one of my own. I plan to name him Frankenfurter, any other sausage related names would be appreciated.
If I could choose one meal to eat for the rest of my life I would choose Taiwanese Hot pot. My old housemate introduced it to me and I am hooked.
I can’t really swim (this shocks many people) I learned how to swim at the end of the last swimming lesson in Primary School and haven’t really attempted it since.
My natural hair colour is strawberry blonde, and yes thats not just ginger in denial. I have photographs to prove it.
I used to live in the same street as Jeff from Byker Grove and would often see him drive past my living room window - if anybody knows who he is you get brownie points from me.
I’m obsessed with vintage clothing and vintage fashion, although only own one vintage dress and a few pairs of Levi shorts. I find most vintage shops sell ugly 80’s clothing where I prefer the femininity of 1950’s and 1960’s clothes. Help me find some decent items please.
I have actually been blogging since 2009, having had around 4-5 blogs over the years and getting sick of them and starting again. Alice’s Wonder Emporium is just over 2 years old and the only one i’ve really stuck with.
I hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little better, i’m also planning on venturing into youtube soon as a way for you all to get to known me more. so watch this space! In the meantime i’d love to know a few facts about you, so pop them below.
