A Fresh Start

30th June. My time at Sixth Form is officially over and my summer has begun! This blog is going to be completely different to my music blog www.strawberryblondeblogs.wordpress.com and will be focused more around fashion/beauty/lifestyle – it’s a topic I said I’d never blog about, but I’m starting a new chapter in my life. I’m developing my writing abilities in terms of what I can write about as it is going to have a major influence on my course when I go to university in September! So to kick off the blog, I’ll be doing 50 random facts about me!

  1. My full name is Bethan Maria Rose Shufflebotham (yes, stupidly long name… pain in the backside to write on exams and stuff)
  2. My birthday is 22/12/1997 (I’m 18-years-old)
  3. I have a brother (Karl, 25) and a sister (Kirsty, 27)
  4. My Staffie Bull Terrier is my baby, her name is Lyla (after the Oasis song)13010604_166189053775659_4653292585824611410_n

  30. I used to play guitar and sing a little but those days are long gone
  31. I’ve never been able to choose summer or winter as a favourite – summer is ace because there’s so much to do and the weather is nice and you’re free from education for a month or so, but in winter you can wrap yourself in 20 blankets with hot chocolate and it’s my birthday and Christmas
