I’ve been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Corina from Topa. It’s basically a tag which encourages bloggers to share a bit about themselves and links to their favourite blogs. I’ve never done anything like this before but thought it was a good opportunity to do something different rather than just blogging about what I’ve been up to like I usually do.

So firstly, here are 7 facts that you might not know about me:

  1. The most played song on my itunes is ‘Jump Into The Fog’ by The Wombats – I absolutely love that song! That album (The Wombats Proudly Present… This Modern Glitch) got me through many long nights working at Uni and I know every word to every song.

  2. My favourite colour is mint green – it looks good and tastes nice too (as ice cream!)

  3. You might have guessed from my photos, but I’m pretty short at just 5ft3.

  4. I love patterns. Aztec, polka dot, floral, leopard print and many more – I can’t resist a good pattern!

  5. I never wear jeans! I recently bought a pair but before then I probably haven’t worn jeans for at least 5 years. I just don’t like how stiff and restricting they are ha

  6. If I was an animal I’d definitely be an owl or bat – something nocturnal! I love night time and I don’t know if it’s just because I’ve trained myself to do late nights/all nighters but I can quite easily get carried away looking at things on pinterest/ reading blogs/ watching youtube videos and then realise the time when I hear the birds singing at 5am!

  7. I found it really hard to think of 7 things to tell you about myself. I just don’t like talking about myself – I’d rather find things out about other people! I was told that I’m a listener at the weekend, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing…

So that was 7 things about me, and now for the easy part – sharing blogs. I follow over 200 blogs ranging from fashion to lifestyle and food to photography – I just love to read and find people really interesting.

Here are a few which I have really enjoyed reading recently (in no particular order):

Style and Influence by Nikki Rodgers

Where tumbleweeds grow by Taide Kennedy

    Congratulations on the award 🙂
    5ft3 is not THAT short. my mum for example is only 5ft 😉
    I love mint green too! It has this 50s feel to it and looks especially good on nail polishes and campervans 😉 Although I wouldn’t say it’s my favourite. My favourite changes regularly and currently I think it is raspberry 🙂
    Oh and you’re not the only lover of a good pattern! 🙂
