Cute blog award

This week I was nominated for a cute blog award by Charlie from Hey Charlie - thank you so much lovely!  She is a fellow stationery addict and Filofax fan so if you haven't found her blog yet please pop by and check it out.

The rules of the award are: 

  • Thank the person that nominates you
  • Answer the following questions
  • Tell your readers something new about you
  • Nominate your own favourite blogs!

  1. What is your “go to” brand of make up? I don't wear make up every day but I do love Benefit.
  2. What is your favourite fashion trend? Yellow is supposed to be a big thing for this spring and it is such a happy colour.  I think it would be a nice pop of colour for accessories. 
  3. What is your favourite dessert? Ben and Jerry's Peanut Butter Cup ice cream.
  4. What is your favourite colour? Teal
  5. What is your middle name? Jayne, I never really liked it.
  6. What is the last song you listened to? Taylor Swift - Blank Space, my daughters have been listening to it on repeat this week!
  7. Dogs or cats? Don't make me choose between my fur babies, I have a cat, two dogs and a bunny!

Now something you all don’t know about me...

Ohhh that's quite hard!  I feel like I tell you things about myself all the time!  Ok, I nearly lost the sight in my left eye about five years ago and now I can't wear contact lenses anymore. 

My nominations for the cute blog award:

Becks from Just Keep Pinning
Michelle from Spotted Rose

Thanks again for the nomination Charlie!


  1. Yellow is going to be popular come spring time? I'm so excited! Yellow doesn't get nearly enough credit (and that means there's hope for orange, too, which gets even less credit!).
    No contact lenses just means you get to chose awesome glasses xD I would never give up my glasses for the "convenience" of contacts, as I look more "me" with glasses on xD

    1. Jessica I love yellow and orange too, they're such fun colours :)

      I do have a nice pair of glasses, they are purple and funky but I do miss contacts. It was easier to put my make up on when I was wearing them!

  2. You deserve the nomination! & I enjoyed looking at the other blogs you recommended. Gosh, that's scary what happened to your eye! I almost lost my sight as a baby when an infection became so serious that I had to stay in hospital & my Mum had to watch as the nurses drained my eyes which became the size of plums-yeuch! Fortunately I was far too young to remember. My eyes became to scarred by years of contact wearing to continue but I was very fortunate as my Dad paid for laser treatment. I didnt mind wearing specs too much but since they were done, I love that they dont steam up when cooking or entering a room after the rain & there's no 'edge' to my field of vision. Also being able to wear cheap sunglasses instead of prescription ones is good. I have to wear them again for TV /distance since they deteriorated a little . But you rock your specs! I dont like my middle names much either- Anne Patricia & only use the first for anything other than my passport- it's lovely to be named after both Grandmas but it's a bit of a mouthful! Thanks to your giveaway, although I don't have much yellow, to be on trend with, at least I have a beautiful Filo as my fashionable accessory :-) x

    1. Your poor mum! I can't imagine how scary it would be to see that happen to your baby :( I'm glad it was caught in time.
      I gave my two girls their grandmother's names for their middle names and my son has one of his grandad's too. All three of them have two middle names so they are a bit of a mouthful but we like them!
      Yes you will be very fashionable with the yellow patent, it's gorgeous too <3
