Versatile Blog Award #1

I've very kindly been awarded the Versatile Blogger Award by the lovely Sian of foreverfabulousinbows. Now I'm very new to this type of blogging, so it's both a surprise, and very flattering. Thank you Sian!

♥ Nominate 15 13 fellow blogger who are relatively new to blogging. 
♥ Let them know that you nominated them. 
♥ Share 7 random facts about yourself. 
♥ Thank the bloggers that have nominated you.
♥ Add the Versatile Blogger Award picture to your blog post.

I'm going to twist the rules a little here. As I'm new to Blogger, I don't really know how long many of you have been blogging. Some blogs I've been reading for over a year, some a few months, and others only a few weeks. So I'm going to nominate the blogs that i most enjoy reading.

I nominate the following blogs, because I genuinely enjoy reading them, and seeing how the lovely ladies style up their outfits. Reading these blogs has been a good distraction for me over the last few months, and have definitely helped raise this shy girl's confidence of her body. So thank you!


♥ foreverfabulousinbows- Thank you for nominating me, Sian! I love reading your blog posts.
♥ mystylisms- This is my lovely friend Carol's blog. She has amazing style and gives me lots of fashion advice! Thanks Carol!

There are so many blogs that I love reading on here, and through Tumblr, I wish I could add every single one to the list, but we'd be here all night. You're all fantastic!

Now, here's 7 random facts about me... (all photos that follow are my own).

1. I'm covered in freckles from head to toe, and even have them on my lips, feet, and the palm of one hand. I absolutely hated them until I was about seventeen, because they made me stand out. It took me a long, long time to accept them, but now I love them.

2. I have two tattoos. One is a design of five stars in pink and black on my wrist, and the other is a floral design on my foot. The one on my foot was very painful! There are many others on my future wish list. I'm addicted to them, and love seeing other people's ink.

3. I once did work experience at two zoos nine years ago when I was studying animal care at college. Over six weeks I got to look after a variety of tropical birds and birds of prey, a children's farm of weird and wonderful animals including a huge male camel and black swans, seals and sea lions, chimpanzees, elephants, and about forty species of monkeys! I loved it!

4. My favourite thing to do is to see a live show. I feel most like myself when I'm in a crowd of people watching my favourite bands perform live. Some of my favourite bands are Linkin Park, Snow Patrol, Evanescence, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, Kings of Leon and The Arcade Fire. I'm not a fan of most modern pop music, and have a very eclectic mix of music on my ipod. I really love movie soundtracks and scores, too.

5. Of course there is an exception. I'm a huge fan of the Irish boyband Boyzone, and have been since I was nine years old (eighteen years and counting). I've met them all a couple of times, and they've always been lovely. I always have the best times with my favourite ladies when I see them live. And, no, I don't care how sad fact number five makes me seem!

6. My favourite film of all time is Titanic. I've been fascinated with the disaster since I first saw the film in 1997. In general, I find tragedies and disasters like the ill-fated ship fascinating.

7. I love experimenting with coloured eye shadows. I'm especially in love with green shades. I once had so many different colours to choose from, that my boss joked I had a different colour on every day of the year. My favourite place to shop for make up was B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful (B for short), until it went in to administration a couple of years ago. I was devastated! Now I love Inglot!

So, there's 7 things about me you never knew, and probably never wanted to!
