Versatile Blogger Award

I have been extremely lucky to have been awarded two blog awards recently. Thanks girls I am very honoured! This was the first one.

The lovely Dani tagged me in this a few days ago. As always there are some rules, they are:
1.Thank and link back to who gave you the award.
2.Share 7 things about yourself.
3.Pass it on to 7 beauty blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy.
4.Leave your recipient a note, telling them about the award.

Now i'm going to have to think up some things that might make me sound interesting!

1. I am a fully qualified brownie leader, much to my boyfriends disbelief. He seems to think that Girlguiding is Hitler Youth. I have been volunteering since I was 15 when I first started my Duke of Edinburgh award. It can be hard work at times, 7-10 year olds can be very demanding but I love it. I hope one day to open my own brownie pack.

2. I am grade seven in the clarinet and had music lessons for 11 years. I have hardly picked the instrument up for nearly four years so I may not even be grade one level now haha!

3. I am celebrating my four year anniversary with the boyfriend next week. Time flies when your having fun eh?

4. I have wanted to be a journalist since I was 11 and am now just months away from completely a degree in it. Its mad to think my dream will be coming true. Hopefully!

5. I have an obsession with buying books, I dont even have the time to read them. But everytime I wander in a charity shop I come out with an handful. My mum has started putting them in the loft without asking me haha!

6. My favourite food is cheese and sour cream. Not always together. I love to smoother everything in sour cream and I can sit and eat a block on cheese in one sitting. I dread to think how many calories my homemade nachos have haha!

7. When I was 18 I went on weightwatchers and ended up losing three stone in about four months. It was such hard work but im so proud of myself. I stopped dieting when I got pulled into my head of sixth form's office and asked if I had problems at home haha! Ive now put about a stone of it back but am mostly happy with the way I look.

So now to tag people! I choose these seven lovely people:

I am on work experience all next week in the city so may not be able to blog very much. I should imagine I will spend all my time sleeping when I finally get home!

On another note, thank to everyone who is reading this! I cannot really believe im on 39 followers :) I think im going to organise a little giveaway at 50 to say thank you to everyone. It means so much to me that you read this!


  1. I love reading these! Good luck with your work experience x

  2. aw thanks for this, I did it on my blog a little while ago actually! I love books too - charity shops are definately the best place for them! x

  3. I was a Brownie help for a while when I was a guide. I'm tempted to go back to it in september...

  4. Awww thank you very much! xxx

  5. hmm really craving some nachos now! with sour cream and guacamole hmmm

  6. interesting stories, I'm a bit similar when it comes to books, got so many on my shelf that need reading!!! I always wanted to do Brownies but I never did, think it was mainly because I wanted the jumper =) I can't believe the Primark in Derry has 4 floors!!!! When I lived in Derby the one there had 3 but one was full of home stuff and the other was mens, I got to go there next time I visit my Granny. Think I might buy a couple of the scallop tops =)
