Can you believe it? This is already my 50th post on Thoughts in Style! Time has flown by and I thought it was time to get a little more personal. A couple of weeks ago I saw this tag on YouTube and I thought it would be fun to do this so you can get to know me a little better. Here’s the ten things you might not know about me tag!
#1 – I have this thing with butterflies. If someone asks me what my favorite animal is, I would say a butterfly. I just think they are such graceful creatures and it also has something to do with my name, which makes them even more special. If I would get a tattoo (which I really want) it would be a butterfly, just below my ankle.
#2 – I’ve been in ballet for over ten years (!). I know, it’s such a long time but I really enjoy it. It’s a really good workout and we always have a performance in June which is always very fun to work towards.
#3 – One of my favorite songs is Mirrors by Justin Timberlake. Last year I went to his concert in Arnhem and I was waiting for this song the whole time and when the concert was almost finished, he finally sung it! And let me tell you when he sung it live, it was even better.
#4 – You may have guessed this by my previous couple of posts but I love to travel! Places I’ve been are: Florence, Paris, Albufeira, New York, Copenhagen, Berlin and more I can’t even think of right now. And soon I’ll be visiting some more… (excited face!)
#5 – I am really good at saving money (if I would say so myself). I don’t know but I just hate it when people can’t handle having money in their account and have to spend it immediately. So that’s why I think it’s really important for myself to save a certain amount of money each month.
#6 – And if you know me really well, you’ll know that I am actually terrified of small spaces. My worst nightmare is driving in a tunnel and then you end up being stuck in the tunnel because the end is closed off. So when I know we’re going to drive through a tunnel, I always make sure I will be asleep.
#7 – My favorite favorite favorite (yeah it’s my favorite) ice cream favor is definitely (yes I am sure) cinnamon. And it’s even better with a big piece of warm apple pie mmm!
#8 – You may not believe this right now, but when I was little I had really blonde hair. But as I got older, it started to change to a darker blonde color. And now it’s this (light) brown color.
#9 – If there’s something that I dislike a lot (like a lot), it has to be the Dutch language. It’s just such a difficult language with all the strange rules. I’d rather talk and write English all day because I actually think in English (don’t ask me why). So for me it’s pretty difficult to keep switching between Dutch and English.
#10 – Sometimes I see something someone talked about and if I feel like it, I will buy it. I don’t know but I just like to surprise people with a random gift (like this little dish from Blond Amsterdam which I got for my mom and grandma).
Well these were some really (really really) random things you now know about me but I did really like this way to get a little more personal on my blog. If you know more of these kind of tags, let me know because I would like to do some more tags on my blog. And I tag all of you to also do this tag on your blog! Send me a link so I can read all of your answers. And which of the ten things were you surprised about? What is one random funny fact about you?
