A Sussex based blogger sharing a candid tale of 20-something humanness

Is this an excuse for a slice of chocolate cake?!

I'm so excited having just received my first blog award! This is almost as exciting as the moment that I had my first kiss; an awkward, hilarious, and oh-so-touching story about the 15 year old me, that we will save for another time...

The award I have been given is the Tell Me About Yourself Award - Your Blog is Great, and I would like to say a huge thank you, and send a big, shiny kiss to the lovely Rachel at Life of a Sweetaholic, and the equally divine Vicki at Glitter Bomb for awarding me this. Girls, if you'd like to come over, I'll have a Dominoes and lots of chocolate-coated cake waiting for you!  ;)

7 Random Things About Me!

1) I would rather have an eye bath  than a pedicure. Honestly, I can't describe how much I love the sensation of the water tipping over my open eye, and that oh-so-glorious-beautifully-refreshed eyeball feeling that follows. 

2) I couldn't breathe through my nose fully until I was 12. That's another story that we will save for another time, but it involved a very awkward bone. (Please do not interpret that in the wrong way.)

3) My best friend Tania is also my next door neighbour, which comes in handy when I'm in need of some good food and can't quite muster the strength to walk to the fridge! Coincidentally, she was born just over 9 months after me, and my theory is that Mumma and Papa D saw my beautiful, chubby little face, and suddenly got exceptionally broody! Unfortunately, I don't have the guts to ask them whether that's true. But I will, one day.

4) I could easily rummage round an antiques market for a week. Old books, dust, and weird clown ornaments that I can scare my friends with- yes please!

5) Last November, me and Tania went to a nightclub in Camden as  VIP guests. This involved serious LBDs, a private balcony, way too much champagne, and one hell of a flirt with Danny from Mcfly. I felt like an A-Lister, and would quite happily relive this night 3571 times over!

6) I never feel more at peace than when I'm writing. And my passion for it has absolutely no boundaries- I'll have a pen in my hand until my very last breath!

7) I have a terrible habit of picking off my mascara at the end of the day. It feels oh-so-good!

So that's it ladies! There's my random facts! :)

And here are the 15 ladies I have chosen. I know some of you have probably already got this, but I really wanted my list to reflect the blogs that I can't stop reading at the moment!

Vicki at Glitter Bomb
Ms Thrifty at A Thrifty Mrs
Emily at egt x3
Bex at Futures
Charlote Elizabeth at Confessions Of A Small Town Girl
Miss Second Hand Rose at Second Hand Rose
Victoria Hannah (known personally to me as Victor) at I was wreckless, you were free
She who wishes to remain anonymous at The Dating Game
and last, but not least, Sophie at Sophie: General goings-on

Love to you all ladies. Happy Wednesday! xXx


  1. OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! *Dancing around the room with my cat doing lots of twirls!!!!* Thank you so so much! I'm so excited now, I don't think I will be able to sleep tonight! I'll blame you for my eye bags tomorrow!! Thanks a million!
    And P.S. What, are you mad?? Why on earth do you like an eye bath? Do you do it at home with a tap or do they actually do it in places? Most people would see that as a form of torture and hate it! They probably are using it as a form of torture in Libya!
    Thanks so so much,you have made my day/week/month/year/life(is that too sad????)
    Second Hand Rose
