So you have discovered my little piece of the interweb, so I guess it is only right to give you a little insight to who Abbie Chic is. And what better way than with 50 things about me!
Really don’t know if I can think of 5 things, let alone 50, but here goes…
1. I have lived in 5 different flats/houses in the last 15 years
2. Two of those flats were right opposite the beach (literally across the road!)
3. My favourite colour is pink (pale not dark btw!)
4. I used to have cats as pets growing up, and would love to have another one
5. I’m 5ft 3in tall
6. And a size 5 in footwear

8. Where at CD:UK whilst Victoria Beckham was performing, I stood next to Mel C in the audience!

19. And we have been married for just over a year and a half
20. Where we got married on Friday 13th on our 13th anniversary
21. I used to write fan fiction when I was younger about my favourite band at the time 911 (and this was pre-internet, so I didn’t know fan fiction was a thing!)
22. I used to idolise the Spice Girls and covered my bedroom walls in their posters as a teenager
23. I completed a 10 mile walk and a 5km run for charity last year.
24. My first job was working as a waitress in a beach cafe
25. My second job was a sales assistant at Warehouse (the now slightly defunct clothes store)
26. When I was very little I wanted to be a Fire Engine or a Hair Drier (I think I meant Fire Woman or Hairdresser)
27. I took me a long time to figure out what YOLO meant (I still don’t know what Fleek means!)
28. I have had my hair cut to an ear length bob twice in my life time and this time I vow to grow it long and not to get it cut that short again

30. I have never been skiing, golfing or scuba diving (I’m not an adventurous person)
31. I have my ears pierced just the once

37. The furthest north in the UK I have been is Manchester, the furthest east is Norfolk, the furthest south is Isle of Wight and furthest west is Cardigan Bay in Wales
38. I like to think I have good sense of direction and geography was one of my better subjects at school
39. I have brown hair and eyes like my mother who originates from Serbia, thought I do have a lot of my dad’s British physical characteristics
40. My best friend and myself where once in a photo shoot for a teen magazine that many years ago that shortly afterwards went bust (like to think we had not input into that!)
