Everyday Life | 100 Truths Blogger Tag

I haven’t done a blogger tag in an absolute age so I thought it’d be fun for readers, old and new, to find out a little more about me! I am so, so late for this train but Sophie from Wife, Mother, Life has tagged me to take part and so here I am baring as much of my soul as 100 truths will allow.

70 – Your first celebrity crush? Oh I honestly don’t have a clue. I can’t think that far back and I was too much into girl bands to be doing with famous men. The earliest one I remember is Ryan Phillippe and he is still gorgeous.
