A MASSIVE THANK YOU – 10,000 BLOG HITS

Image

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all my followers! My blog as of today has hit the enormous amount of 10,000 hits! Hooray!

When I first started my blog I never imagined anyone would be interested in what I had to say or wanted to talk about but I have seen how wrong I am, the blogging community on WordPress, Blogger, Twitter, Facebook, Bloglovin and Better Blogging Network have all been such lovely people and I’ve made some super blogging friends as well! 🙂

My blog’s birthday is near which will be another wonderful milestone! On March 29th my blog will be 1 year old and I am looking forward to that a lot!

So because I reached 10,000 hits on my blog and gained so many followers as well as having my blog’s birthday soon I will be doing a giveaway on April 29th to celebrate everything! 🙂

Thank you once again!

Liebster Award Nomination!

liebster_award
So a BIG thank you to Carlie because she kindly nominated my blog for a Liebster award! I have never really understood or known much about the Liebster award and this is a great privileged to be nominated! All I know about the Liebster award is that it is an award passed around by bloggers who in turn nominate their favourite bloggers and blogs to answer questions and then nominate others, this helps everyone get to know more about each other and shows a mass of support and promotes others blogs as well as your own.

So this is the requirements for this Liebster award:

  • The chosen nominee gives 11 facts about themselves
  • Answer the questions given to them by their nominator which in my case is Carlie!
  • Link back to the person who nominated them again in my case that’s Carlie 🙂
  • Nominate 11 blogs they love with under 200 followers & give them 11 questions made up by you and let them know you have given them the award as well 🙂

So let’s begin! 11 facts about me:

  1. I have a double jointed thumb! Gross to some but I find it cool because it gives me an advantage when playing thumb wars!
  2. When I listen to my iPod I like to change the song always before it ends, I’m just a little impatient.
  3. I once dyed my hair orange by accident, trying to achieve blonde. Safe to say I am happy being brunette still.
  4. My favourite animal is a Great White Shark!
  5. I have two tattoos at the moment, a medium sized cross on the left side of my back and a little Chinese symbol on the right side of my back.
  6. I once had pierced ears when I was like 10, I had unicorn earrings and my ears had an allergic reaction leading to me having to take them out and my piercing holes closed up and I have never had my ears pierced since.
  7. I love cheese, I think it’s brilliant!
  8. I completed Grand Theft Auto 5 in just about 4 days, I got very little sleep but it was worth it.
  9. I love volunteering and taking an interest in ways I can help people, animals and such because it makes me feel happy 🙂
  10. I love my writing to look neat, if it doesn’t I will re-write everything until it looks presentable.
  11. My favourite flower is a daffodil, but because they are only available a certain time of year I also love roses as well.

So that is 11 facts about myself, now onto the 11 questions Carlie asked!…

 1) Sum up your blog in one sentence – Positive
2) What is the funniest selfie you’ve ever taken? (bonus points for putting it up!) – Probably this one….

3) Favourite skincare Brand? – I’d have to say either Clearasil or Nivea.
4) What do you order from a coffee shop? – A cup of tea and a muffin 🙂
5) What languages do you speak? – Basic and I mean basic Japanese, French, Spanish.
6) What’s your favourite movie? – I have to many favourite movies!
7) If you could meet one blogger face to face, who would it be and why?- I’d love to meet all the bloggers that have supported me and my blog face to face because they’re all so lovely.
8) When putting make up on, what do you generally play up? (eyeliner? bright lipstick?) – I tend to generally concentrate more on my eyes, so eye shadow and mascara!
9) What is your go to food of choice? – Lasagne with garlic bread!
10) In any given week, how many ways would you say you style your hair? – I’d say dependent on weather, at least 3 or 4.
11) What has been your most rewarding experience so far? – My most rewarding experience so far would be both my blog and also helping out with charity work in various places.

So now onto my questions for my nominees! >>>

  1. Name someone who inspires you (Famous/non famous)?
  2. What’s your favourite colour and why?
  3. Tea/Coffee?
  4. Do you have a blogger you are exceptionally close to and how did you start becoming so close?
  5. Favourite season of year?
  6. If you could go back to any period of time in the past where would you go and why?
  7. Something you hate?
  8. Something you have learned from blogging?

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 3 TECHNOLOGY

Hey everyone!

I just want to firstly say a massive thank you to the recent new followers, the followers who have been there from the beginning and the ones who joined along the way! Your support for my growing blog has been immense and I am so grateful there are people who appreciate what I write & enjoy looking at my blog 🙂

I have received many comments over the past few days and they have all been so lovely! So thank you and please keep it up because I love to hear what you all think and if you’re enjoying it 🙂

Anyway moving on! Yesterday was day 3 of the photo challenge, I didn’t get to upload this yesterday because for some reason my WordPress wouldn’t load! But success because today it did and I am here writing this post! 🙂 So choosing something that represents technology was tough because I didn’t want to go for the cliche things but after much deliberation I decided that the best photo is my iPhone background.

My iPhone is something I use everyday, I think to me it represents that technology has come so far considering the past that now everyone can have a piece of a growing industry themselves, not only this but I think it represents the amount of people that are technologically advanced nowadays and the growth in consumerism.

Well hope you enjoyed my 3rd photo, day 4 will be up tonight and it’s a pet/animal!

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 2 FOOD

So today is my second day of my 30 day photo challenge, today’s topic or keyword is FOOD! I myself am a big foodie, I love food and I love making it and presenting it as well. So after a long hard think about what to take a photo of today I chose my dinner and this is because it is one of my favourite meals! Spaghetti Bolognese! 🙂 As as student my cooking abilities were terrible to begin with but now I can happily say I can cook a wide range of meals and make up my own as well from top of my head so that’s helpful 🙂 Anyway here is my photo for day 2!

My Second OOTD Post Ever…

Okay so I am still getting used to doing OOTD (Outift of the day) posts as I am still very shy but It’s alright, when Summer kicks in a bit more I will start to take some photo’s outside which would look better I guess than indoors, but still I thought I would share with you guys my outfit that I wore today 🙂 

Image

I wore a plain black vest because it goes which literally every single item of clothing possible and some grey ultra skinny jeans from TU that I got ages ago in a sale for £6. Everyone on here knows I love blazers so today I teamed my vest and jeans with a black,red and white blazer that I got a while back from a random shop, I love this blazer because unlike other blazers it isn’t restricting and instead it is quite stretchy and elasticated which is a bonus for maximum comfort.

The weather today was sunny however still rather cold which is why I thought this was a great combination, plus the blazer can be buttoned up or unbuttoned and the sleeves can be rolled up if it got hotter. (Which it didn’t!)

Anyway hope you enjoyed my second OOTD post 🙂 Like/subscribe/follow!

We all love something right? Pets, food, gaming I could go on…But I thought I would share with my followers 5 things that I really love! 🙂

  • Food – I love food, Although I am fussy about what I eat sometimes I do appreciate food. I love cakes and good traditional hearty main meals like Lasagna and Macaroni Cheese!
  • Romantic Gestures – I love it when my partner does little romantic things, I am a big lover of bouquets of flowers, hand made gifts, brought gifts or planned romantic days out to a restaurant or cinema and snugly nights in with a take away and bunch of movies 🙂
  • Holidays – I love the anticipation and atmosphere of knowing I am going on holiday, I love being able to buy summer clothing and beach accessories before I leave, I love the journey there either via plane or car and I love the relaxation and break from reality that it brings with it!
  • Buying some new clothes – I love it when I buy new clothes because I feel so refreshed and new. I love getting to wear an item I brought for the first time and feel good about it as well.
  • When I get new followers – I love getting new followers on my blog, it makes me super happy to see people are enjoying what I write and liking the different aspects of my blog such as the university posts, the fashion posts and the beauty posts. I also love seeing that I have followers from many different countries because it’s rather exciting 🙂
