Beautiful Blogger Award


Thank the person that nominated you and link to their blog

I was so happy when I saw that I had been nominated for this award by the beautiful Guin at her blog, GeeBeeBeauty. If you haven't already done so, I recommend you go and check it out! :) 
Thanks so much Guin!! xx

Tell us how the idea of  making a blog popped up and what makes you continue it?

I originally found the idea of blogging when I was looking into buying some make up products and searched for reviews on the internet, and obviously lots of lovely blogs popped up with their reviews, as I found more and more I spent a lot of time reading blogs, months in fact... I originally only read a few blogs, my favourites included Zoella, Louise at Sprinkle Of Glitter, The Sunday Girl, Fleur De Force & Victorias Vintage. As time went on I began to discover more and more wonderful blogs. Then finally in June 2012 I decided I would start my own, to share my beauty finds, nail designs and budget buys with everyone. I love it when I see I have a new comment or a new follower to my blog, and when you know at least someone, somewhere appreciates the work you are putting in to your blog, it gives you the motivation to carry on posting! :)

Describe a usual day in you life

Warning - Pretty boring life description ahead!!

I work full time 5 days a week as a Sales Administrator at a busy bathroom manufacturing company. My usual day starts at around 7:30 in the morning when I drag myself out of bed, kind of zombie like I must say, and attempt to make myself look half decent(or even awake) before setting off to work at 8:30. I then work through until 5 o'clock. When I get home I finally manage to have a bit of me time! I tend to just sit and read blogs or update my own for a little while, before I begin to get ready again to go and see my boyfriend on the night. We usually end up going Tesco's for food or just a walk around. Or we occasionally go to the cinemas/ play pool/ go for a meal. I then stay with him at his parents house overnight.

Saturdays I like to go shopping with my mom and sister, Charity shops and bargain stores are my favourite places to check out. 

Sundays I always hope to have a lie in, but when my boyfriend has to work early this hardly ever happens! I do occasionally check out a car boot sale on a Sunday morning too, and then maybe a little retail therapy later in the day/ or a pampering day before work again on Monday :(

The best collaboration with a blogger

None so far, but I'd like to.

The worst collaboration with a blogger

Not applicable, answered above...

Describe what having a blog means to you

My blog is basically a record of my life and everything I enjoy and love, knowing that my readers are even looking at my blog makes me happy because it shows people are slightly interested in what I have to say. I enjoy feeling like part of a community with other bloggers. & Hopefully one day I will have built up enough of a blog to have something to be proud of.
