The Sunshine Blogger Award

I've been nominated for the Sunshine award by Kate which I'm really happy and grateful for! I love her blog and she's a great person so I'm really happy with this!

"The whole idea of the Sunshine Award is that you nominate eleven bloggers who put a little sunshine in your day, who are positive, creative, and inspiring."

The Rules:

- You have to post a picture of the Sunshine award in the blog post. 

- Post 11 random facts about yourself.

- Answer the 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you.
- Nominate 11 wonderful bloggers.
- Write 11 questions for them to answer.
- Let the bloggers you nominated know you have nominated them.

11 facts:

- I'm a diabetic with a sweet tooth and a severe needle phobia. Oh, the irony.
- I own over 20 scarves and I still want more, they're my clothing obsession.
- I just hit 1,000 views this month and I couldn't be happier, thank you everyone!
- I wear skirts and dresses more in theAutumn/Winter than I do in Summer.
- I almost never wear tights, instead I wear leggings because they keep me warmer and mean that I don't have to worry about flashing as much!
- If I don't know what to wear in the morning, I do my make up first and decide on those colours, then build an outfit around that.
- I would love to work in a museum one day, artefacts absolutely fascinate me!
- If I don't end up following a career in Archaeology/Ancient History, I want to become a journalist or write in a magazine.
- I find people that think they know everything highly annoying.
- I'm a grammar and spelling freak. I correct everyone and everything. 
- I am basically connected to my phone, it keeps me in the loop with so many things and makes it so much easier to stay organised; the notes and reminders apps are by far the most used things on my phone!

Kate's questions for me:

- Best day of your life?

10th May 2012. Or Prom. It was amazing, and after prom was equally special. I have so many fantastic friends and it was great to hang out with them all and just have fun!
- Favourite flower?
I love all flowers, they always look so pretty together; I can't choose just one!
- Are your toenails currently painted?
Nope! I only ever paint my fingers.
- A quote to live by?
"Aerodynamically a bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway" - Mary Kay Ash
- Biggest problem in your life right now?
Stress. I stress over everything.
- What does your most recent text message say?
Night! :)
- 13th line on the 123rd page of your favourite book?
I don't have a favourite book! I have several!
- Do you read a newspaper?
I have a news email update every day which is great!
- What song is in your head right now?
Lose Yourself cover by Hudson Taylor and Orla Gartland.
- What will you be doing in 19 hours' time?
It will be 5am so I hope I will be asleep!
- Favourite website?
Blogger or Polyvore! Or tumblr, instagram, pinterest....there are a lot.

I nominated my favourite blogs for the Versatile Bloggers Award the other week! 
If you want to do this, then do! I love reading these and finding out about other bloggers!

I'll nominate Amy, Anna and Rosie though because I love these girls' blogs and they're lovely too!

My questions:

- Favourite part of your room?
- Favourite artist?
- Thing you own the most of?
- What is the one thing you wish you could do better?
- Favourite possession?
- Favourite smell?
- Something you're addicted to?
- Favourite TV show?
- Last holiday?

Hope you guys enjoyed this! I'm off on holiday this week so I will post if I find internet but I don't know if I will!

  1. I love scarves! I keep eyeing so many when I've been shopping lately but it's going into summer here in New Zealand and so that kind of makes my decision to not buy them. I would love 20 different scarves, I'm very jealous :)
