Versatile Blogger Award

Sunday, 4 February 2018

I've never had anyone tag me in one of these awards before, but I was so thrilled when the lovely Jess at 'Foundations and Fairytales' thought of me! Thank you so much! (pssst, go check her blog out!

The Versatile Blogger Award is great as it helps you to:

  • find out things about bloggers you love
  • discover new bloggers
The rules if you are nominated are:
  • thank the person who nominated you 
  • write 7 facts about yourself
  • nominate 15 bloggers

7 Facts About Me

1. I studied Journalism at uni - I wanted to be a journalist from a very young age - around 10 or 11 I think, but I've talked very openly about how my degree threw my career plans into question for me. And even now, I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do! But without a shadow of a doubt, my time at uni was the best of my life!

2. I have two younger siblings - a 20 year old brother and a 17 year old sister. Although, my brother acts as if he is the oldest and my sister is more like my twin!

3. The lady I call Grandma isn't my grandma by blood -  but she's as good as. She's an incredibly special woman whom I have known since I was 5 or 6, and she's been there for me through so much, and taught me even more. (And in all honestly, I have a lot of extended family who aren't related by blood, but I'm a big believer in you can choose your family!)

4. I taught myself to ride a bike when I was 18 - I wasn't confident trying to learn to ride a bike as a child, and my dad gave up trying to teach me pretty quickly. I found myself bored one day whilst on study leave for my A Levels, and found my sister's bike in the shed and decided I was going to teach myself to ride it. Two hours later, I did! 

5. The Lion King is my all-time favourite Disney film - I never get bored of watching it and I've even seen the stage version in London and absolutely loved it!

6. I have two tattoos - one of a dragonfly on my wrist, and the words 'sola gratia' on my ribs (that one hurt!) I'd love more very soon, but I have grown up things like a new car to buy first!

7. I've known my best friend since I was 5 years old - and she's never getting rid of me!
