Versatile Blogger Award


I've spent all day doing research for jobs (OMG I'M SO REPETITIVE I SHOULD SHUT UP) and I'm getting a bit of cabin fever sat in our study on my mum's laptop so I thought I would treat myself to a break and say thank you to both Holly and Isobel who have recently nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! I love both these guys and what I love most is watching a blog grow and both of these have done this. Holly is particularly sweet on hers and is always thriving for positivity with a nice mix of real life and girly beautifulness! Isobel has got a lovely blog with all things girly from nail art to fashion to a lovely candle holder idea I love!

There are 3 rules;
1. Thank the person that nominated you, and give them a shout out on your blog with a link to theirs.
2. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
3. Send on the award to 15 other boggers whose blog you love and appreciate and then let them know they won the award.

Well a big thank you to Holly and Isobel and please go check them out, you won't regret it

I honestly pour pretty much everything about me in to this blog so don't be surprised when my facts are as boring as beige.

1. I'm a nail biter. I used to be worse but I've recently calmed down and have actually managed to grow some respectable length nails

2. I never applied to do History and Sociology, I wanted to do History but got rejected and offered a joint degree so went crazy and thought 'why the devil not' and that was that.

3. I started seeing Lee in the first 2 weeks of university so I was in  a relationship for almost all of my uni life

4. My favourite animal is a red panda, thanks to the kids section in London Zoo. I have a teddy of a red panda called 'Big Red' which I had almost the exact change to buy at the gift shop.

5. I hate cider, I can't drink it at all. I've never even had a bad experience on it

6. I'm hugely poor, my overdraft is nearly at its limit

7. I hate driving. I can drive but it makes me so nervous that I really hate it, I also have a terrible in built GPS and always have to stick to roads I know for fear of forgetting where I'm going

Now on to the 15 people I nominate. I'm nominating these 15 as I feel like the people who write them have genuinely supported me through my posts and without them blogging wouldn't be half as fun. I'm sorry I can't nominate every single one of you because all of you bring something new to my blogging life and I love you all!


  1. Aww congrats on your award and thanks so much for passing it on to me too!

    I can understand why driving makes you nervous, I get nervous too sometimes, especially on roads I don't know but I think it's all about confidence. My best driving occurs when I'm confident in myself!

    I always bite my nails too :P

  2. Congrats on your award hun! And thank you for nominating me! :-D

    I totally agree with your fact 7 - in fact I hate driving so much I passed my test in 2005 and haven't driven since lol

    Em :-)


  3. thank you so much for the lovely words you wrote about me and my blog, you put the biggest smile on my face hehe :D I enjoyed reading your facts, you have such a fun way of writing and I feel like I know you so well just from reading your blog! :D
    I really do hope you find a lovely job soon :)

  4. Awe thank you so much! I love that you hate driving as I do as well! I have to drive every day to work and I dread it every night!!! I actually crashed into my garage the other day... shameful!!!!

    Thank you again, this is super nice of you and I really appreciate it! I love your blog & read it all the time, you are such a lovely writer!

  5. Thanks for nominating me! I'm a really bad nail biter too, not a good habit at all! xxx

  6. Congratulations and thank yuou for nominating me :) xxx

  7. Thanks hun!!! :)

    As for the driving thing - Try not to use GPS/Sat navs or whatever. Honestly, they are the devil in disguise... I had a bad experience with one in which my car ended up being badly crushed! :(

    Check online using google maps for any directions before hand. I prefer google to the AA cos it says things like 'go left at this roundabout' destination is 3rd on the left or something so it is soooo easy to understand! :D xxx

  8. Aw thank you so much! I will get around to doing this ASAP. I'm a terrible, terrible nail biter too :(

  11. congrats on the award you! And fanx for passing it on :D Your facts aren't boring! In fact I'll be storing them away for future reference (maybe). Job hunts suck, boo. I really am rooting for you finding something! I would have the same fact 3 as you (except with a David, not a Lee). xxx

  12. LOVE IT!


  13. Thank you for nominating me!! :)

  14. Thank you for nominating me! :D I'll have to do this one day soon. I really can't stand cider either, the apple kind anyway, I absolutely love the fruit flavoured ones though xx
