I'd like to thank....

...the lovely Miss LV for awarding me the stylish blogger award. My first one ever :) If you haven't stopped by her blog then make sure you do here for her views on all things beauty-related (Miss LV has also enlightened me to the utter gorgeous-ness of chinchillas in the form of Dusty - how have I not known how cute they are until now!?)

On to the rules for the award which are...

♥     Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post
♥     Tell us seven things about yourself
♥     Award 7 recently discovered new bloggers
♥     Contact these bloggers and let them know they've received the award

So, the 7 things about myself are:

1 - I love making lists so this should be a doddle
2 -  I'm half Italian on my dad's side
3 -  My favourite food is cheese. Nom
4 -  I recently completed a masters degree in HR management or in other words I wrote what felt like a zillion essays and had no social life for the best part of two years : /
5 -  I was vegetarian for 7 years before going to uni and re-discovering the wonder that is a hangover-busting big mac
6 -  My car's nickname is Kevin - he's a silver-blue Peugeot.
7 - I'm afraid of clowns and perhaps more weirdly, the sea (I hate the fact that you have no idea what you're standing on!)

And my 7 newly discovered blogs are:

The Outfits of a Twin Mummy (head to this blog for gorgeous outfit posts from Karen, who also has the most infectious smile I've seen in ages!)

Little Miss NC25 (Brilliantly written posts with a personal feel and gorgeous pics...and she's a fellow NC25!)

Emily Charlotte (Her latest post on blog 'pressure' is a must-read - check it out now)
The Little Things We Do (Not strictly a beauty blog but a wicked read all the same - I especially love Lauren's 'Fill in the Blank Friday' feature, may have to get involved soon!

That's So Fletch (A great beauty blog from a stateside blogger...and such a cute blog name!)

Nana in Wonderland (Gorgeous fashion blog with some amazing photography)

The Former Girl at Bar (A fab fashion, beauty and general life blog by Lexi from San Francisco - I love her tagline of ' sometimes booze...' Just about sums it up I think!)

Until next time,


  1. Im so happy you are pleased with the award, your blog is great so keep up the good work! And Im thrilled you like Dusty! He is so cute, so happy I got him Yay!!

    I hate the sea too lol, totally agree you dont what or who has been in there.

  2. Thank you so much for reading Rachael! This is truly an honor.

    I really wanted to say, "Cheers" but I didn't want you to think I was some lame American girl trying to sound English!

  3. @ Miss LV thank you - keep up the dusty updates too - I'm sweetening up the boyf to convince him that we need one in our life!

    @ Lexi920 you're more than welcome! Not sure you can ever be lame living in San Francisco..that's very cool in my book! :)
