The Beautiful Blog Award // One Year Blogiversary

As some of you may already know as today is my first blogging anniversary (wooo!) I was originally going to do my giveaway today but because of the prizes not being here yet, I wanted to make sure they were here and so I can photograph them first etc. So that will be up some point this week or next week!

But, as it's a special day for my blog I wanted to still upload a post today anyway so what a better day is there to upload my post for the 'Beautiful Blog Award'?!

I was kindly nominated for this award by Tania who's blog you can find here

  • Answer the questions given by your nominator
  • Write your own questions for your nominees
  • Nominate any bloggers you think deserve this award and let them know!

Tania's Questions:

What TV show are you really into right now?

I haven't really been watching that much tv lately so I'd have to say Made in Chelsea!
What is your summer beauty essential?
I'd usually say mascara but at the moment I've been loving using CC cream and it helps that it usually has quite good SPF too!

Who is your celebrity crush?
Easy - Danny Jones from Mcfly.

What do you class as your biggest blogging achievement so far?
Either reaching 300 followers or to be still blogging after a year of writing my first ever blog post.

What is one of the most embarrassing things you've ever done?
Oh no, erm, there's probably a lot but I can't think of one right now.. Actually, the one that's just come to mind is when I was playing 'tiggy bob down' with some friends when I was about 5 or 6 at play time in school and when I 'bobbed down' I accidentally sat in some dog muck - lovely. I then had to tell the teacher and get changed. How embarrassing I know!

Where would you love to live in the world, if money wasn't a factor?
To be honest I'd probably still live in England, maybe London and get a nice big house/flat!

My Questions:
  1. How long have you been blogging for?
  2. Do you prefer summer or winter?
  3. What do you like to do in your spare time?
  4. What is your dream job?
  5. Favourite item of clothing that you own?
  6. Where would you go on holiday right now if you had the chance to go anywhere?

My nominations are:

Summer Nail Art

Due to the sun deciding to finally make an appearance today it reminded me that I still haven't posted this summer nail art post! A few weeks ago I decided to play about with a few different nail art designs with some bright summer colours. I'm really pleased with how these came out so now I'm already looking forward to creating some autumn/winter designs!

Tiger, Bee and paw print

Daisy, flowers and polka dots

I used the Rio nail art pens to create these designs which are really good and easy to use. My favourites here are the tiger, daisy and polka dot prints, what are yours?

Are you into nail art at all?

Cleethorpes Air Show

Quite a few weeks ago now I went to see the Cleethorpes Air Show which was really amazing! As I've gotten into photography a lot more recently I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite photos from the day.

My Workwear Wishlist

Since starting my work placement this month I've been loving looking at and wearing work wear clothing. I've picked out a few different things that caught my eye that would be suitable to wear to work (although I didn't realise until after they're mostly monochrome.. ooops!) I particularly like the blazer and trousers here and I think they'd work well together too!

What do you like to wear to work?

Seen as I haven't posted anything on my blog all month I thought I'd give you a little explanation as to why I haven't. I've recently started my work placement which is part of my four year course at uni. I started at the beginning of this month and although I'm enjoying every second of it, I'm not having enough time to write or upload any posts for you all (hence why I'm writing this post in my memos on the train home at the moment).

Not only this but I have also had some personal problems going on in my life at the moment (which I won't go into) but I guess I just wanted to let you all know that I'll be back on track with regular posts shortly. I attempted to write some the other day but didn't feel like they were to the standard they could have been so I wanted to wait and post them when they've been written properly. Hopefully I'll find some time this bank holiday weekend to finish writing up and posting some of my saved drafts!

And finally some good news to end on (drum roll please...) It's coming up to my ONE YEAR BLOGGING ANNIVERSARY! So don't forget to look out for a special giveaway soon which should be starting on the 31st August!
