1000 Followers | Facts About Us!

As we reached 1000 followers on bloglovin! we wanted our followers to know more about the bloggers behind Beyond The Velvet! Thank you to everyone that follows and reads our blog, it means so much to us as this blog means a lot to us. We've always wanted to blog but it wasn't until August last year that we finally started to blog. Since then we have fallen in love with blogging and couldn't imagine not having a blog! Thank you for following and all of your lovely comments mean everything to us!


Here are some facts about us! 
  • We're identical twins.
  • Rachel was born 10 minutes before Leah.
  • Leah is taller even though she is the youngest.
  • We're best friends and we hardly ever fight or argue :)
  • We have an older sister called Caroline.
  • We love listening to Rock music and heavy metal!
  • If we had to choose, Alice In Chains, Korn, Slipknot and Pantera are our favourite bands but is so many great bands out there that we're obsessed with!
  • Jonathan Davis (singer from Korn) actually liked our picture (of us!!) on instagram. I literally died. I love you so much Jon! I can't believe he's saw our faces and knows we exist ahaha.
  • We play guitar, drums and bass guitar. 
  • We were homeschooled since the age of 15 because we were bullied in school. 
  • We're both very shy and suffer with social anxiety.
  • We smoke the odd cigarette, haha.
  • We're aiming to dye our hair every colour of the rainbow (semi-permanent of course!)
  • We love the sun and summer.
  • We're addicted to Coffee!
  • We like to think our style is differnet to the norm. We love anything lace, velvet, vintage, goth and grunge.
  • The Walking Dead is just the best show ever! I love The Following too!
  • We love accessories and everything with a pentagram on it is just dreamy.
  • Leah has a tattoo and we're planning on getting some more soon.
  • My favourite lipstick right now is 'Diva' lipstick from MAC.
  • We've saw Korn and Slipknot in concert and we're seeing Korn again in July this year! To say we're excited is an understatment!
  • Our favourite films is 'Some Like It Hot' 
  • Marilyn Monroe is one of our idols.
  • Putting makeup on is such a chore but I can never have a day off!
  • We want very long hair, so long that we can sit on it!
  • I love my little furbaby more than life itself! My little Heidi is just the cutest and I love her so much. My sister's dog Megan is also so cute and loving. I really don't know what I'd do without my dogs in my life. 
  • We love, love, love drawing. Art is just so fun and relaxing but it is very frustrating at times.
  • I have too much makeup.
  • We're both addicted to buying lipstick.
  • We're the biggest fan girls you'll ever meet, haha. 
Well, hope that wasn't too boring haha. Thanks for reading and I hope your all having a great Easter Sunday if you are celebrating.

Got any facts about yourself that you'd want to share? We'd love to know :)
Love Rachel & Leah, x x x

  9. Congrats! You could have much more followers though! As a Social media marketer I travel a lot surprisingly, which is weird. But I have learned a lot and especially when it comes to Instagram. What everyone says is to get a bot, while I agree I also say that there is more to it like, the authenticity and how well it actually gets the job done. If you want to use the same Instagram bot that all the big wigs are using then check it out here http://instaboters.com

  22. Some people might think it weird but my favorite portion of any blog is the one where the author/s talk a bit more about themselves. It makes me think I know a bit more about them than just their fashion sense or love for makeup. So, thanks for sharing! And congratulations on reaching 1000! :)
