5 things you may not know about me

Classic "Mel Face" on a beach in Barbados 

Since the weather in Calgary is completely and utterly depressing (winter 2.0) I wasn't able to take outfit pictures for today. Hopefully the weather decides to be my friend again and let me take some photos!

I thought it would be fun to share 5 facts that you may not know about me... here they go!

1.) I'm a total night owl - I've been a night owl for as long as I can remember. I've always had trouble sleeping early and find myself most productive at night! Any insomniacs in the house? 

2.) I have a huge fear of going under bridges - I don't know what it is about going under them but I always think that the bridge will come crumbling down.. crazy I know! Everytime it happens I take a deep breath! 

3.) I'm a nail biter/hair twirler - These are my two major bad habits. I've done both since I was little and I can't seem to stop! I would really love to stop biting my nails, I'm so embarrassed by them! Seriously.. I'm pretty sure my boyfriend has longer nails then me! 

4.) I have a teddy bear that I still sleep with- Yes, this is true. I'm 26 and still sleep with a teddy bear. I'm not a crazy girl and take it out on trips and outings I swear! Seriously though, this commercial made me cry because it hit close to home! 

5.) My biggest celebrity crush is Jim Carrey! Kinda weird I know, but there's just something about him! He's hilarious and his facial expressions get me every time. One of my top favourite movies that I can also recite word for word is Dumb and Dumber. I also love that he can do completely different movies like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (also one of my favourites). He's just a major babe and Canadian! Come on.. am I the only one? 

There you have it! 5 slightly embarrassing facts about me!
Do any of them relate to you? I'd love to know!


  1. I'm a total night owl, too! So not a morning person. This is such a fun post. I need to be better about posting this like this.

  2. Loving this! I'm totally a night owl too! It used to be pretty bad in university when I went to bed at 4am and got up at about 10, but nowadays by midnight, my eyes start to be heavy. I could never be that person who goes to bed at 10pm! Great post Melanie! :)

  3. Ugh I am a total night owl as well! I should be in bed already, but alas, I'm on my computer catching up on blogs instead. I regret it when I wake up at 6:30 each morning, but I never seem to remember that feeling at night!

    Here's to hoping it warms up soon...
