TAG - The Versatile Blogger Award. (and Liebster Award #2)

This is my third blog award nomination but is none the less exciting to receive.

I want to thank Sarah at Xlicious Girl, so very much for including me in her list of nominations!
Make sure to stop by her blog and say Hi! 
So here are the rules...:

  • If you are nominated, you have been awarded the Versatile Blogger Award.
  • Thank the person who gave you this award and include a link to their blog. 
  • Nominate 15 blogs/bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.
  • Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
My 15 Blog Nominations:

7 Facts About Me:
  1. Although I'm 22 years old, I'm actually afraid of the dark. Even in my own home I'll turn the lights off and run to wherever I'm headed. 
  2. I spend the vast percentage of my days watch 90s/00s kids tv shows and movies. I need there to be something playing at all times even if I'm typing up blogs or doing housework - I like it there as background noise and that era had the best programming. 
  3. I'm constantly dehydrated because I literally forget to drink. I've gone a couple of days without any liquids... Oops.
  4. I've met and had my photo taken with some of the biggest names in MMA.
  5. I love to eat broccoli!
  6. Anti-Apple. Completely can't stand the whole Apple brand and the obsession people have with iPhones.
  7. It's taken me a couple day's to write this because I simply just cannot think of facts about myself haha.
Also how cool is this GIF! Haha I'm easily amused. Credit

I thought I'd also include my thanks to Tiffany of With Love, Tiffany for nominating me for my second Liebster Award, in this post! Please do go stop by her blog and say hi!
So seeing as it is my second time receiving this award I'll let you check out my old post for the 11 facts. I really don't think I can think up other 11 haha!

Here are my answers to the questions that Tiffany asked,
(go to her blog to see the questions) -
  1. I really don't know. Just now, being unemployed, I spend the majority of my time doing blog related things. I love having somewhere like a giant scrapbook that I can voice my opinions, share cool things I've found out or showcase my photography, while also being able to share it with others and get their input. 
  2. I'd love to own a cruelty free farm or an animal sanctuary. It's 100% what I'd do if I won the lottery.
  3. Uhh, my high school photograph from year 9 I have shiny blue eye shadow stuff on and it kills me every time I see it. haha
  4. Everything except dubstep and drum and bass. If you check out 'My Soundtrack', you'll get a little taster, however there is no where near the amount of diversity I have in my CD collection. 
  5. 16 Kids and Counting. Defiantly a strange thing to watch when I'm not a fan of kids.
  6. I like the heat of Summer, the baby animals of Spring and the leaves and photo opportunities of Autumn. I'm not a fan of winter, it makes me feel sad. :( 
  7. None at all unfortunately
  8. Alice in Wonderland! I wrote about it HERE as well as my other Top 5.
  9. Eyeliner. As long as I still had mascara I don't think eyeliner would be such a big deal. I've always struggled with my skin and have worn full coverage pretty much since middle school. Recently I've tried to just use a BB Cream and concealer though and have as many make up free days as I can when I'm not going to be leaving the house. 
  10. I had to take a test as I wasn't sure.
  11. No one really. I wear alot of Disney clothes, sweat pants, jumpers and comfy stuff that doesn't matter if it gets dirty having a puppy and all. 

Phew, this is a looonng post. Are you bored of hearing about me yet? I dunno if my idea of combining the posts was beneficial or not haha. Anyways, thanks again to Sarah and Tiffany, I really do appreciate you including me in your nominations, it means alot to know that you even just read my blog let alone picked me among the other brilliant blogs you chose.

  6. Thanks so much! I wear Disney clothes! You're never too old to wear Disney I say. I'm not scared of the dark but I send my imagination to a weird place sometimes, for example: I thought what if a zombie was just stood outside as the apocalypse had already started but I didn't know because I had been on a New Girl watching spree. To which I then had Mission Impossibled (yes it's a word) myself to the sink next to the really big window and then rand back out the door *AHEM!* but yeah I run in the dark too x
