A little award and some cute accessories!

I was chuffed to read that I had been given a Liebster blog award from Gemma at Love and Life blog. Thank you so much : )

As part of the award I have to share 11 things about me, answer 11 questions Gemma has asked and also ask 11 questions to the people who I will share this award with. I have shared quite a few facts about myself in previous posts and really cannot think of many more, so I might have to miss that part out. 

The 11 questions Gem has asked me....

1. Best Holiday you have ever had?

It would have to be Orlando in Florida. I have been a few times and I never tire of it. Each time you find something different to do and you cannot beat a gorgeous swim in the villa after a long day in the Floridian heat!

2. What is you favourite thing about blogging?

I have made new friends who have similar interests and personalities to me, and I find that is a rare occurrence 'in real life' (gosh that sounds funny doesn't it?!). There are so many new ideas and recipes and experiences shared in blog world and I absolutely love it!

3. Your current emotion and why?

Tired. Literally sleepy but also tired of not knowing what direction my life is going in. 

4. Whats more important to you love or money?

Love is so much more important to me. 

5. How much would you spend on a handbag?

Unless I was rich probably about £100. I try not to be materialistic.

6. Where do you do your food shop?

I live at home with my parents who do the food shop, but if me & Ian are out looking for food we usually go to Sainsburys or Asda.

7. Can you drive if not do you want to learn?

I am learning to drive at the moment. For a long time I wanted to learn but felt so nervous to book a lesson. Now I am glad I did but am nervous to book a test!

8. Heels or flats?

Flats unless it's a special occasion. I like to be comfortable.

9. Ideal job?

My ideal job would be to have a successful small business (which is what I am aiming for at the moment!). I really enjoy making,sewing,baking,gardening and photography, so anything to do with that really!

10. Do you have a pet?

We have a cat and a dog.

11. What are your hobbies apart from blogging?

I enjoy crochet and sewing. I love to cook and bake. So much fun!

I think these awards have been around my little blog circle a lot recently so I won't ask anyone in particular but feel free to take part if you would like to!


This week has been a little slow hasn't it? Usually the weeks fly by but personally this one has dragged by for me. This past week I have been making a few new bits to add to my shop

I have a selection of fabrics & different colours if anyone is interested.I am already thinking about making some up as Xmas pressies for the family!

I hope you have a fab weekend!
