Blog Award


One thing I love most about blogging is the give and take. You comment on someone's blog and they come over and read yours. It's such a community. This is why I love things like this, everyone is a winner. I love guest posts and linking to other people's blogs and Blogger of the Month awards. (I'm actually thinking of starting up Blogger of the Month again in the new year). I've had so much support from the blogging community over the last few months, so I was thrilled to get this award from Amber. Her blog is absolutely adorable and she is so lovely. Go go go read her blog now :]]] Well, once you've read my post, of course!!





To accept the Versatile Blogger Award, there are some rules to be follow:
1. Thank and link back to who gave you the award
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Pass it along to 7 other blogs you recently discovered and enjoy
4. Leave your recipient a note, telling them you awarded them the award


Okay, well 7 things about me eh? This is going to be tricky- I feel that you already know everything there is to know about me!!


1. I am hopelessly addicted to Ketchup




(and I really want this tshirt!!)
I eat Ketchup with everything from Baked Potatoes to Curry to Pasta. There are few foods in the world that are tomato-ey enough for me, so I smother everything in the beautifully red sugary stuff!!


2. I start and end my work-outs with the same songs
I've not decided yet if this is weird or not. I always start my workout with The Pretty Reckless- Make me Wanna Die and end it with Fall Out Boy- 20 Dollar Nosebleed. 


3. I own over 40 nail varnishes...but I bite my nails into oblivion
I really, really want to stop biting them, but I just can't help it!! I think it's a nerves thing!!


4. I am a total loser, and damn proud of it!!
I love nothing more than a night in with friends, or a night in on my own with endless cups of tea and quiet and a good book. I'm an only child so I go crazy without my alone time!! I get insanely excited if anyone brings up Bret Easton Ellis or Chuck Palahniuk and I am slowly making my way through my 52 Books in 52 Weeks. I was told by my own mother a few weeks ago that I am far too much of a goody-goody. I get my homework in on time, I work hard and I hope that in the future I'll reap the benefits. I also absolutely love geeky boys. I love nothing more than a guy who is smart, motivated and works hard. And can fix my computer.


5. My other passions include literature and food.
I absolutely love to cook. I love the satisfaction of all the cutting and chopping and stirring to make one delicious dish. I also love fresh fruit and vegetables. I'm a creature of habit really, I eat a lot of the same foods- apples, bananas, oranges, pineapple, broccoli, carrots, peanut butter, bread, yoghurt, cereal and almonds make up the majority of my intake for the day!! My favourite thing to make is soup- especially butternut squash soup mmmm.

6. I am an excellent tap dancer



(i'm second from the left!!)

Unless you dance with me, you may not know this. I love to dance by tap is by far my favourite. I miss dancing so much being over here. I started dancing when I was 2 and danced until I was 12. I then got back into it towards the end of high school and in my first year of uni took two classes. I was in six dances last year!! Advanced Jazz, Advanced Modern, Advanced Street Jazz, Musical Theatre, the Closing dance and of course, Advanced Tap!!

7. The more time I spend in America, the most British I realise I am
I always had a love affair with America, but it turns out I'm actually rather reserved, polite and I drink a lot of tea. I'm always loved England although I'm not especially patriotic, but I realise now that I am quite British. The way I dress, my sense of humour, my general demeanour- I am a British girl through and through. And I have never been more proud of that!

7 Bloggers to pass this on to...
1. PrettyNiftyThriftyFashion
2. OnlyHalfDressed
3. RebelAngel
4. Laughing with Broken Eyes
5. Two Eyes in the Mirror
6. Accio Hagrid

Have a great day :]]]
