Happy 1st Birthday!


Happy 1st birthday, Naturally Jes!

That’s only half a lie. It was Naturally Jes’ first birthday two months ago but I am excited to share with you Naturally Jes’ first official birthday post. Are you excited? Because I know I am.

For Naturally Jes’ first birthday, I thought it would be fun to do the 50 facts about me challenge, so without further ado, here is fifty facts about me:

001: I was born in Melbourne, Australia.
002: I was born on a Monday.
003: Exactly eighteen days before I was born, my parents lost their first daughter.
004: I was an auntie at the age of twelve.
005: I am an older sister, and a younger sister.
006: My middle name is Ann.

018: But I would love to go to Ireland, UK and Scotland one day.
019: I have a thing for Irish and British accents.

021: I love pasta. I really do.
022: I hate pancakes with a mighty fine passion.
023: I have Typophobia.
024: Because of my Typophobia I won’t eat crumpets or the chocolate Aeros.

031: Nearly this time next year, I will be a qualified Counsellor.
032: I have never been an academic person.
033: I disliked primary school, high school and I am not a great big fan of University.
034: This may be because I was bullied throughout primary and high school.
035: I suffer with anxiety.
036: But it used to be a lot worse when I was younger.
037: I love to read.
038: I am currently not reading anything because I am waiting for Girl Online to be posted to my house! I’m very excited.
039: I love to watch films.
040: My favourite film is undecided. I have far too many favourites.
041: I am still in touch with my friend from kindergarten.
042: I love fruit.
043: When I apply makeup, I always do winged eyeliner. It’s my “signature” look.

Before I end this post, I would genuinely like to thank each and every one of you for the support over the past year. I wouldn’t have made it without you. You’re the reason why I blog and I hope to be blogging for a long time yet! 


  1. Happy happy birthday to Naturally Jes! It's never too late to celebrate one's birthday. It's been great having you on here and reading about your adventures/musings. Here's to many more years hopefully! :)
    Also, I must admit that pancakes aren't really my thing either. They might just be a tad overrated.

  2. Congratulations Jes! I've loved reading your blog for months now and I've loved watching it grow :) Can't wait to see what's in store for the next year!
