Starting the 10 Day You Challenge with ’10 Secrets’


So I thought I'd do the '10 Day You Challenge' as it seemed like a cutsie thing to do and you know me... I'm all about the cute *coughs and searches frantically for a picture of a kitten... nope - not one!* But seriously... 10 secrets? I don't even know if I HAVE 10 secrets. OK …
