A sunny award...

Last week I got a lovely blog award from the fab Ali at Zombies Wear Eyeliner - go check her out, she has excellent taste in make up!  I could probably learn a lesson or two actually, think I own about 10 cosmetics...  Anyway, here's the rules...

- Include award logo in a post
- Answer 10 questions about yourself (below)
- Nominate 10-12 other fabulous bloggers
- Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blog, letting them know about the award
- Share the love and link the person who nominated you

1 - What would you most like to change about yourself?
I'd like to be one of those people who sees the good side of everything and puts everyone at ease with their friendly manner, I'm so not like that!  Or someone who doesn't know the meaning of the word 'procrastination'...

2 - What's your theme song?
Possibly anything by Taylor Swift - I get what she's talking about in all those disillusioned songs.

3 - One part of your life, a memory, action, etc. that you wish you could surgically remove from your brain?
Meh, I'm of the opinion that everything happens for a reason, therefore even the horrible memories must have taught me a life lesson somewhere.  Some were definitely more obvious than others, but if I changed any of them I'd be a different (likely more naive) person, which I'm not so sure would be a good thing...

4 - What generation do you wish you'd been a part of?
Ah difficult!  I've always found the 70s rather attractive, but actually my generation really has it pretty good.  If anything I'd like to experience what the future would be like 100 years from now, since I'm not sure mankind will last that long, plus we've changed so much since 100 years ago, where else can we go but down?

5 - What was your favourite childhood toy?
I was a hardcore Barbie fan!  My best friend didn't like playing with them so my neighbour or brother were always roped in to invent storylines and embellish costumes.  I had a playroom upstairs in our house with all Barbie ever needed - a camper, multiple cars and horses, about a million outfits, a pool, an improvised house and another 20 'friends' that looked just like her.  And a fair few boyfriends of course ;)  Also up there were a bunch of Puppy in my Pockets, Polly Pockets (I liked the miniatures!), baby dolls and Lego.  Not that I was spoiled or anything...

6 - What is your favourite house cleaning chore?
Must admit me and my hoover get on really well - I always feel rooms look much better with a freshly hoovered carpet!  And doing the ironing is quite satisfying too, getting all those creases out.  I can just about tolerate dusting but cleaning the bathroom is my worst nightmare...

7 - Do you Twitter?
I sure do!  Find me here :)

8 - Any goals?
To tour America.  And more of the world.  Short terms goals are to find a worthwhile job and actually save enough money for the first plan...  Wouldn't mind being able to quit eating sugar, but may as well stick with the realistic ones ;)

9 - Do you really drink margaritas all the time?
Eh no... but I do drink Budweiser on occassion!

10 - What's the ugliest car you've ever driven and were embarrassed to be seen in?
Well my second car was pretty hideous - a maroon Ford Escort that cost £500 from the local garage, I called it my 'old man car'.  I eventually sold it and went without cause it had so many problems.  Really if a car works effectively I don't much care what it looks like!  Altho I will never own a white car or a Ford Ka, you have my word.

And now my nominees!
Sarah at Sarah Rooftops
Rebecca at A Domino Effect
Rosie at A Rosie Outlook
Kat at Legs Eleven
Kristin at High Socks
Sarah at First Kiss Time
Caitlin at To Make Love Stay
Jade at Dotty Dolly

All very good sunny reads! (see what I did there... ;))



  1. When I picked my first car my dad wanted me to at least try a Ford Ka because they were one of the only cars in my price range but I told him no chance, horrible things, although I do like the new shape xxx

  2. Aw, thank you! I've only ever driven one car, though, with an instructor next to me going, "Now... maybe try TEN miles an hour...?" I really should go back and finish those lessons...

  3. Elise, thank you so much for this nomination - it's so sweet of you! Also, thank you so much for your comment on my blog!

    I've just got home from my trip to Florida and we too went to the Golden Corral for dinner, a lot! It was delicious and frankly any restaurant that has a chocolate fountain and candy floss as a dessert has my vote! :)


  4. Thanks for the nomination - just catching up on blog reading post holiday
