Hello hello, it is my birthday! Wooo. Today I turn 29 years of age and I must say I feel slightly old and honestly feel like my twenties has absolutely flown by. It is scary how time flies but I am blessed to be hear, healthy and happy and that is what life is all about right? As I'm getting older I realise how precious time actually is, and how valuable those lessons we learn the way really are. I am proud of my twenty nine years, and each year I feel a bit more like the person I'm supposed to be.
Today I wanted to share 29 things that you didn't know about me so lets get started..
1. I DON'T HAVE A MIDDLE NAME
Yes that is right, I do no not. I always wanted one because growing up everyone I knew had a middle name but looking back it's just a name and to be honest nobody really uses them. Although I would my children one day to have a middle name that is for sure.
2. MY NAME IS NOT LOTTIE'S LOTT
Just wanted to clear this up for anyone out there, my name is Charlotte. Charlotte Wharram.
3. I HATE HEIGHTS
I cannot cope with windy staircases or steep ones for that matter. I try to avoid them if I possibly can, they scare me and I hate going up and down feeling dizzy and feel like I'm going to fall. This of course includes roller-coasters.
4. I LOVE FRANK SINATRA
That is right my friends, I absolutely love Frank. His voice is something else, I love everything about him and do you know what it is all thanks to my Grandma and Grandad. My Grandad Tenny adored him and when I listen to Frank, it reminds me of those times that we used to listen to Sinatra together.. happy happy memories *insert love heart emoji here*
5. I USED TO COLLECT SNAILS
When I was growing up possibly from the age of 6/7 me and my sister loved collecting snails in the garden and we would put them in an old tin, made sure they had food, water and would look after them. I can understand why they weren't allowed in the house.
6. I AM A FOODIE
I love food, I always have. I love eating out at nice restaurants, going for brunch. I love trying new food and taking lil snaps of it. Oh, I miss those days.
7. MY MUSIC CHOICE WAS INFLUNCED BY MY FAMILY
My mum has always loved music, she was brought up with music in the home, my grandparents love Frank Sinatra, and my Uncle has always loved the Beatles so I grew up loving them as my mum is such a fan/
8. I AM NOT A ONLY CHILD
I have a sister who's called Fiona and there's about 18/19 months between us.
9. I DO NOT HAVE A PET
True, my dad had a cat growing up and he was around when I was a baby, then we had goldfish and had a few hamsters but always wanted a dog. I would LOVE a dog so much but would also like a kitten.
10. I STILL LIVE AT HOME
Oh I would love to move out and have a flat of my own.. I would love a house too but that will be a long old wild before that happens.
11. I LOVE FILMS
How can you not? I love films, my favourites are Casablanca, Some Like It Hot, Skyfall and Forest Gump. But I love so many.
12. I HAVE A PHOBIER OF RATS
Do I need to say anymore, I hate them.

Absolutely! She does incredible skincare and I love her makeup, high quality but lasts a long time.
16. I AM TALL
I'm 5ft11, have been blessed with being tall, It has taken some confidence to say the least but happy being tall.
17. I WENT TO NEW YORK
Oh it was magical, it was a long old time ago. I was 17, I was on a college trip. Would love to again and see more of what I wanted to see though.
18. GAME OF THRONES IS MY ALL TIME FAVOURITE SHOW
I absolutely love it! I have the box set and every series minus the last episode is just amazing.
19. I WENT TO SEE ALL THE HARRY POTTER FILMS AT THE CINEMA

20. TOPSHOP IS MY FAVOURITE HIGHT STREET STORE.
I have always been a massive fan of Topshop and it is even better as it is British.

Black is not my colour, I would never black on it's own. It's very dark and I'm very fair and it makes me look white. I love colour.
25. I LOVE DESSERTS
My favourite part of of a meal is a dessert. I love cheesecakes, sticky toffee pudding, crumble's, apple pies.
