The One Lovely Blog Award

Yesterday, I was nominated for the One Lovely Blog award. I was so pleased and excited. It really means a lot when a fellow blogger recognises your blog. On that note, I would like to start by saying a big thank you to the lovely Katie from Growing Up Katertot - check out her blog here: http://growingupkatertot.weebly.com/. A lovely blog, full of inspirational posts and beautiful photographs!

As part of accepting the award, I have to write 7 random facts about me. Here goes:

1. I find it incredibly difficult to compile "facts about me lists".
2. I colour my hair way too often because I get bored of the colour quickly
3. Whilst I love other people's children, I have no plans to have any of my own
4. I would love to hop on a plane and travel the world - if anyone would like to pay for this trip in return for me blogging about it, just say the word! :)
5. One of my favourite sayings is "worse things happen at sea" I have no idea where I first heard this phrase, but it certainly fits most situations! I do get some funny looks sometimes when I use it though!
6. I am trying to use more images in my blog posts. I find this quite hard as I am definitely more wordy than arty.
7. I can't wait for the new season of Orange is the New Black - a year between seasons is too long!

I now nominate the following for the One Lovely Blog award!

To accept the award, you simply have to do the following:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
2. Add the One Lovely Blog badge to your post.
3. Share seven facts about yourself.
4. Nominate about 15 bloggers you admire by posting a comment on their blog.

Thanks again to Katie!

  1. I love how we learn crazy sayings at some point and they stick with us :)
    Do you do crazy colours? Or just different tones? x

  6. I end up coloring my hair twice, maybe three times a year. I didn't actually like anyone's children until I had my own. Now I love them all. Once upon a time I would have joined you in your world travels, but now I just treasure every moment I am home. I have never watched that show. - Blog awards are fun sometimes, a burden at others.

    1. I worry one of these day's I'll get the colour on and it will all drop out! I love children when I can give them back :) If you have children, I imagine you don't want to go so far, but if you change your mind, give me a shout! Honestly the show is fab, if you get a chance give it a try! I quite enjoyed this one, although I struggle listing things about myself, I think readers like to see the personal side of you, I know I do when I visit other blogs. Thanks for commenting :)

  7. I also LOVE Orange is the New Black. I dyed my hair continuously from age 15- 28. Oh the sweet relief of not having to do it now! And you know what? My natural colour isn't all that bad.

    Thanks for the nomination!

    1. So excited for the new series :) I could just about live with my natural colour but if I don't dye it I have lines where each colour ends :( You're welcome :)
