50 Facts About Me


I'm so sorry I've been so late in my blog posting this year. It's 25th January and this is my first post of 2014... That's totally not good enough and I promise I'll do better as the year goes on! In all honesty though, it's been a bit of a busy beginning to 2014 for me. I've started my own personal styling business and I've been trying to design the website and sort out everything that goes with it. If you're interested in seeing all of my hard work, take a look at my new website: I also have a Facebook page too: Get liking for all of our news! 

To those of you who are interested in my vlogging activities you can take a look at my newest vlog on YouTube. It's entitled "What's in my Handbag" - I'll leave it below in case you're interested. You can also subscribe to my channel - Dizzy Miss Lizzy to ensure you're up to date on all of my vlogs!

So, onto this weeks post! It's going to be something a little different this time. I think it's important that you guys get to know about me, so this weeks blog post is entitled "50 Facts About Me".
