Hello again! I can't believe it's been a month since I've updated, I do apologise! I've been having an incredibly stressful and a little bit tough couple of months, and unfortunately I had to step away from the blog in order to sort out some other things in my life and ensure my stress levels didn't go through the roof. It's tough to do outfit posts when just getting out of bed is struggle enough! But things are a lot better now and I thought I'd do a little introductory post of sorts, in case there's any new readers that have checked in during the past couple of weeks. 

I've seen the '30 Things About Me' post on a few blogs, most recently on one of my new favourite blogs Bow Ties Are Cool, and I thought I'd do my own for you! So, here we go...

1| I was born in Bunbury, Western Australia, and I lived there until I was 17.
2| Since I moved up to Perth I've lived in four different houses in six years. 
3| The house I live in currently was bought by my dad just after he finished uni, then his parents lived in it, and now I live in it. I love living in a house with so much family history and I never want to move!
4| My parents are both dentists. And no, I can't tell you what's wrong with your teeth. 
5| I have one younger sister. I was a pretty rotten sister when we were growing up but I think I'm okay now!
6| I never wagged school. It never even occurred to me to do so!
7| I have one tattoo - a heart just under my elbow on my forearm. I'm planning my second one and I don't want to say much but it is Johnny Cash themed!
8| I collect records, weird salt and pepper shakers, and novelty jumpers (sweaters to my American friends).
9| I did an internship at Xpress Magazine and it was basically the best time of my life. 
10| About two years ago I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety, and while it's a lot better now, I still have some pretty gross-feeling weeks. 
11| I've been with my boyfriend Aidan for a little over a year and a half. I had a huge crush on him all through uni but we didn't talk until I asked him to come to a movie review with me two years after uni finished!
12| I am really good at music trivia. Whenever Spicks & Specks or RockWiz is on TV the room mysteriously empties because I take it too seriously and try to make everyone play. 
13| Babies terrify me. My friend had a beautiful baby boy a while ago but I still haven't held him! They gross me out and scare me at the same time. 
14| I'm a godmother to my youngest cousin Adam, who is basically the best kid ever (although he's VERY cheeky!). 
15| I've dislocated both my knees - one when I smashed it into a high jump bar when I was about 10 or 11, and one when I did dancing at school in year 10 and the stupid year 11 girl "helping" out our class twisted my knee out on the barre. As soon as I put it down my kneecap rolled out to the side. They still pop out occasionally and it is THE most painful thing ever. 
16| Just Like Heaven by The Cure is my favourite song.
17| As far as I know I wasn't named after anyone, but Tara is a hill in Ireland where all the kings and queens are buried (my mum's side of the family is Irish). It also means "rocky pinnacle". 
18| I hate summer. Of course it has its good points but it also goes on for about three quarters of the year here in Perth.
19| I can play the ukulele. 
20| I've never been overseas.
21| I can't drink champagne without getting an immediate headache. And I really dislike the taste. Blech.  
22| I hate talking on the phone and I avoid it as much as possible (except to my mum, because, well, who can ignore their mum when she calls?). 
23| I wear glasses for reading.
24| My favourite music to listen to is '50s rock'n'roll. Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis... I would listen to it all the time if I could!
25| I've worked in retail for six years. I'm currently a manager for one of our Pigeonhole stores, which is my first full-time job. 
26| Breakfast is my favourite meal to go out for, but I almost always skip it at home! Naughty.
27| My worst habit is cracking my neck. It's so satisfying but I know the sound is so gross to other people!
28| Another bad habit I have is pulling on my eyelashes. They're very gappy and it's a bit embarrassing.
29| I don't have my driver's licence. 
30| My favourite drink is Sailor Jerry's and ginger ale. 

WOAH! Thanks for reading that, if you made it through the whole post. I'd love to know if you do a thirty things post - I think they're so interesting! And please keep an eye out for new blog posts, I'm really excited to get back into things again! I have my March Book Club post ready to go and a few outfit posts on the backburner, so watch out for those!
