5 Things I Do Outside Of Blogging

by - September 25, 2014

Bloggers are unusual people, and I often find that what a blogger does outside of blogging really surprising - but that information isn't often known! If you have 10 (or more) things you want to tell people, feel free to make your own post. And then link me to it so I can stalk you.

1. I play and excessive amount of Facebook games. It's kind of embarrasing. I loved the Facebook simulation games like Cafe World, Fashion World and even Social City or whatever it was called, but sadly all of these have now been closed. So I'm left madly playing Bubble Witch 2 and Slotomania...

2. I cross stitch. This is better known, as I have links to my Etsy page on the side bar. I've been cross stitching since I was 13 and... I'm really good at it. *shameless brag*

3. I collect things. I've always been a bit of a collector. My biggest collection is Kinder Surprise toys, which you have never heard of if you're American because they're banned in your country. Pretty sad. I have boxes and boxes of these toys that I need to sort out... when I get a chance! I also collect Lego figures and some small Hello Kitty figures.

Christmas ones are harder to get, and worth more. This one's a penguin with a parachute. Stop judging me.

4. I seem to have turned book hunting into an art form. Normal people just go out and buy books, but I actually spend a lot of time trying to find new places to get books cheaply. I've been to charity shops in Blackpool, Whitby, Somerset, York, Leeds, London and probably a few more places too. Last week I found 6 YA books for £1 each in a shop that sells wool, which was a weird moment.

Pretty sure most readers relate to the towering bookshelves.

5. Photography! I like to take photographs of things. Yep... bout it really. I do have a pigeon obsession though.

    Fun post! Love that you take pictures of pigeons :D I think they're such a pretty bird but they have such a bad rap ('rats with wings'). I've never heard of Kinder Surprise toys-off to google!

  2. I love Kinder Egg toys! I have loads of random ones dotted about in my room, and my boyfriend and I ate ourselves sick this summer trying to collect all the Marvel superhero ones! Love cross-stitching too :)

  3. This is awesome. XD I always think it's intensely cool to get to know bloggers more, you know? Not in a creepy/stalkery way. It's just fun! I used to cross-stitch but I haven't done it in years. Yours looks amazing though and I have looked at your etsy store of them. YOU ARE TALENTED. I suck at photography but one day I'm going to learn it properly. :-)

  4. Love this!! OMG HAVE YOU SEEN THE GIANT KINDER EGGS!!! haha I used to collect them with my dad when I was little, I used to have this giant bucket full of them, and have multiples :D Ohh your cross stitching looks soo good!! I wish we had lots of little bookstores in Aus like you do in the UK! We have a few, but they always have the same books because hardly anyone goes there.

  5. cute blog! What i generally do outside blogging is vlogging. haha. I spend a ton of time watching my tv shows too. I also love taking photography, specifically book photography.

  6. I used to play a lot of Facebook games too. In fact, that was the main reason I joined Facebook many years ago. I don't play anymore though. XD And it's so nice that you like cross stitching. I love doing that too, but getting materials is difficult for me so I don't really do it. Haha.
    And you should definitely teach me how to book hunt. I could use some of those cheap books. Too many books too little money. Haha!
