Sunshine (award) on a rainy day!

I received a blog award! The lovely lady that is Vintage and Vanilla, Darling!, has really made my day!
What a doll!

Be sure to check out her blog and the others I have nominated below!

The rules for this award are:
1) Thank the person who gave you this award and link back to them in your post
2) Tell us some things about yourself
3) Nominate 10 bloggers
4) Contact these bloggers and let them know they have received this award

Ten things about myself: (Ok, I did nine....its good to be different! And, I got stuck on ten!)
  1. My mum is my style icon, best friend and hero, all in one. She taught me most of what I know about fashion, life and love. The rest, I taught her.
  2. Secondary School was the lowest point of my life. I was considered ugly, stupid and spent years on the receiving end of nasty remarks. Since leaving, my life has completely turned around and I'm glad to say I love my life!. 
  3. I have a hideous addiction to coffee. I quit smoking 7 months ago and now a mocha or an espresso is what gets me through the day!
  4. Everything I own, even relatively basic items, HAVE to be unusual. Example? Even my knives are beautifully coloured!
  5. My family is truly huge! I love each any every member and I'm so proud of them all. 
  6. Rudeness, arrogance and jelously are the three worst emotions. Smile. 
  7. I haven't had a blog long, but I feel since I have, its given me this little buzz. I love talking to you all from all different parts of the world and it means so much that people like what I wear. 
    I'm a complete blog addict. I read so many blogs a day now, and always looking for more! I love seeing how other people style themselves. Its just so inspiring!
  8. Last summer, I flew across the sea to meet my long lost family (my grandads). When we were leaving, his sister (who is nearly 90!) hugged me, crying, saying how if he could see me now, he would be so proud of me. He died when I was still a child, but he and I had such a strong bond. Hearing that was so moving, mainly because I still miss him so much.  

  9. My beau is the one...

Blogs I nominate:

Just a few of my favourites!
