So I got tagged by my Swedish/Nigerian blog twinsie Nicole from Nicole's Beauty. It is about time I do a post like this as I only did them when I first started blogging, then I got tagged so often I got overwhelmed and so stressed out about the tags I hadn't finish lol! So sorry if you've tagged me in the past and I did not do the tag.

1. I have been reading blogs daily for about 7 years (since I was 13).

3. My first language is technically English, but I moved to Sweden and forgot it all and had to re learn it
4. I have 3 siblings, none of which live in the same country as me :(
5. I have gone to 3 schools, excluding college, lived in 6-8 towns, 2 countries, and in over 20 different places.
