I won :)

The past few weeks have been crazy, with it being exams or assignments in Bangor, or coming home to spend time with my family and friends. It's all been so good, however I've neglected my blogging duties greatly. Over this time, I've been very very fortunate enough to win 4 blog awards!! Yep, I've no idea how either. Each time I've won, Ive said I'll do the post very soon, but somehow never get around to it. So this is a uber-mega-long blog award post :) Be warned!

So the first one came courtesy of Tiffeny at!
Tiffeny is such a sweet heart, I love her blog to pieces- she does such honest reviews, and I've picked up many a beauty tip from her! Definitely check her out (as if you're already not following her!)

The Laine Blogger award:
1) Link back to the blogger who awarded you
2) Blog about your award
3) Give this award to 5 bloggers and let them know!

I'm awarding this to:
Becca at backfortea
Rachael at islandgirlinsights
Clarice at thedivamomma

I was awarded the Versatile Blogger Award from the gorgeous Zoe- Lianne at . Zoe- Lianne is a lovely lovely blogger who is very brave going through a spending ban! She blogs with passion and her personality shines through. Check her out nowww :)

Now, to save you from dying of boredom whilst reading this, I will say now. I was very lucky to be awarded the Versatile Blogger Award in February, so I'm going to link the blog post where I did the facts and where I nominated others

So I'm sure you've heard about the Blogger Appreciation Award.
So I couldn't believe my luck when I was awarded it by 2 of my favourite bloggers!
I was given this award by Tiffeny at justtiffeny, and Becca at backfortea! Becca is one of my all time favourite bloggers, you know when you read someone's post but you feel like you know them really well and really get on? Well that's how I feel about Becca (sorry Becca if that sounds weird haha!) She blogs so well, and her flair for writing is obvious. She satisfies my inkling for Lush products and makes me smile every time I read her posts! :)
Check them both outttt!!!

1) Thank the person (or in my case, people) who awarded you, and leave a link on your blog
2) Answer the 4 following questions
3) Award this award to as many people as you'd like
4) Let the people know through a comment/tweet/message

How long have you been blogging?
I've ben blogging since August last year :)

What are 1-2 reasons you started blogging?
I'm not really sure why I started, I'd read blogs for a year or so before and just loved the idea of documenting things. I've always been rubbish with keeping diaries but really wanted to, and seeing as I've always been a bit of a computer geek- an online diary seemed like a good idea :)

What type of blogs do you like to follow/read?
I read mostly beauty blogs, although I'm pretty much hopeless with all things beauty, I seeing fashionable OOTDs so I can steal some ideas is always great. I love reading life blogs, which I guess mine is, maybe cause I'm nosey, but I just love hearing about other peoples lives, I think it's fascinating :)

What is one thing you'd like to improve as a blogger on your blog?
I guess I'd love to be able to write about a wider range of things, I know it's my life and all that so I guess to write about more things I need to do more things. But sometimes I feel like I'm repeating myself a lot haha!

I nominate the following bloggers
Zoe- Lianne at zoeliannex
Laura at adaisychaindream
Rebecca at whatrebeccasaid.blogspot

So thank you to all of you girlies for giving me these awards, I really do appreciate all of you and your comments on my blog.

I hope you're all smiling, Happy Good Friday :)
