One Lovely Blog Award


I’m not making this up, nor am I paying people to nominate me for these lovely little awards…. This week I’d like to thank Julianna for nominating me for a ‘one lovely blog’ award. Please stop by her blog foodie on board, but don’t touch the gingersnaps, they are ALL mine!

Here are the rules for accepting the One Lovely Blog Award:

1.  Add the One Lovely Blog Award badge to your blog.

2.  Share 7 things about yourself.

3.  Pass the award on to 7 other bloggers and inform them by commenting on their blog.

4.  Thank the person who nominated you.

So 7 things about me are…

1) When I grow up I want to be like kirstie allsopp! Those of you not from this part of the world will be asking WHO??? I love her, for all her crafting, homemaking and fabulous dress sense.

2) I’m never EVER moving again, it’s tiring and stressful…. And why would I, when I wake up to this:


3) I love everything mango related; from body butter and scrubs to juice and the fruit itself!

4) I prefer to get my eyebrows threaded.

5) My favourite book of 2013 was I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes.

Where are my manners??!

Where are my manners?! As the old year turned into the new year I received my first award. It seemed fitting that it was welcoming me to the WordPress family!

Thank you Elaine for my award; her fantastic blog http://foodbod.wordpress.com and facebook page are part of my daily life now!


I’m a bit slow on the whole blogging protocol but I’m learning as I go and no doubt making plenty of mistakes. But I’m having fun and that’s all that matters to me!

I’ve made so many friends over the last couple of months. Elaine at http://foodbod.wordpress.com and Dimple at http://shivaaydelights.wordpress.com have been there supporting me since almost day one. So thank you ladies!
