In the last couple of days I have received the Stylish Blogger Award from the beautiful Anna from The Style Diet/Anna Saccone and the Versatile Blogger Award from Carla who has a blog is called Mad Giraffe. Since the rules are pretty similar for both tags I’ve decided to combine them and so after much thinking (I think I’ve shared a lot about myself on my blog already) here are 7 facts about me!
Reggie Bear was the first gift I ever ever ever received. I’ve had him ever since I was born and I don’t ever want to be without him. I used to absolutely adore cuddly toys when I was younger and I’d always get one if I ever visited a Zoo or went on a day out as a little memento. I still have a couple of really special ones but Reggie Bear will always be my favourite.
I have lived in the same house, on the same street, in the same town for all of my life so far. This has been my hometown for almost 22 years and although I was born here it’s never really felt like home. My Grandparents all live in York and whenever I’m there I always feel like I’m truly home. Don’t get me wrong, I like it here and it’s a lovely little seaside town to visit but it doesn’t feel like it’s where I’m meant to be. I get asked all the time if I’m going to miss the beach and I know I will in the winter time. It’s really magical on those freezing cold foggy days when there’s a thick mist settled over the ocean and there’s no one around. It’s like a scene out of Eternal Sunshine. In the summer however this little town is completely overrun with tourists and the magic disappears.
Very soon I’ll be living in a little village surrounded by this stunning countryside. It’s going to be a complete contrast to my life now and I couldn’t be more excited about it. If I hadn’t met my boyfriend I probably wouldn’t have ever visited Derbyshire but when views like this will soon be a short drive away I can’t wait to start the next part of my life. York will soon be an hour away rather than the 6 it is now so popping to my Grandparents house for the day will soon be a reality and not just a distant dream.
My boyfriend and I have been together for almost three years now and I still pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming. I’m a stroppy little madam sometimes, usually when I don’t get my own way, and somehow he manages to put up with me. The 200 mile distance between us has been difficult & I haven't seen him for three months, but we'll make it. I know I’m only 21 but I think you just know when you’ve met the right person and I know we’re meant to be together.
I believe that everyone has at least one talent and I think mine is photography. I’d never been one to have any real hobbies. I hated those little clubs you could go to as a small child and someone was really mean to me when I went to ballet classes so those days were short lived. When I started photography however something just clicked and I instantly loved it. I’ve had luck on my side when I’ve taken some of the images I’m most proud of but there’s something about being behind a camera that feels so right. I’m not a professional photographer and I’m pretty sure that I never will be but I like it that way. It’s something I do because I want to & not because I have to.
There are 2 foods I would eat every single day if I could; one is pasta and the other is vegetarian sushi. The first time my boyfriend took me for sushi I wasn’t a fan at all, but I agreed to give it another go and now I’m totally in love. My favourite thing from Yo! Sushi is the kaiso salad, it tastes so so good and I wish I could make it myself or buy it in bulk! I also really love vegetable yakisoba. The only thing I know how to make myself is simple maki so I have a feeling that trips to Yo! Sushi will be happening for a very long time!
My mama is my best friend in the whole world. She’s always been there no matter what and I know that if I ever need anything she’ll be there in a second. We’ve had a hard time over the last year or so and I know the only reason we’ve made it through is because we’ve got each other. She’s my rock and I’m so grateful to be able to have such a close relationship with her. If I can be even half the person she is, then I’ll have a happy life.
I hope this wasn't super boring to read, I'm sure I've mentioned all these things before at some point but I'm not the most interesting person in the world, that's for sure! I never know who to tag so I'm going to tag anyone that wants to do it. I know, I'm rubbish!
