As a complete and utter amateur in this new blogging community, I am proud to announce my nomination and acceptance of this award. I have http://jessicaforrester.me/ to thank for proposing my blog, so please give her’s a read! I am sure you will find it as inspiring and as interesting as I do!

After a strenuous hour of researching the rules, stupidly they were posted on the same blog that nominated me. So, here goes…

  • Post the award on your blog.
  • Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to their blog.
  • Write 11 random facts about yourself
  • Nominate 11 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have less than 200 followers.
  • Answer 11 questions posted by the presenter and ask your nominees 11 questions.

You can decline the offer if you wish, but I recommend accepting it because recognizing fellow bloggers plays a big part in the recognition of your own blog.

My 11 random facts are…

1) I can recite my entire A Level French speaking exam (from four years ago)

2) My three cats are all named after musicians (Otis- Otis Redding, Dylan- Bob Dylan and lulu- you know, that singer)

3) I am a natural ginger but I cover my denial with blonde dye.

4) I was in a ‘math rock’ band, as the lead singer

5) I was called back to the same modelling agency as Kate Moss but got rejected (because of my deceiving 38 inch hips)

6) I have the same hip measurements as Iggy Azalia (Now that,  I am proud of)

7) My great uncle was a famous pianist- William Blezard

8) I can open beer bottles with my teeth

9) I travelled the UK (even though I live there)

10) I love collecting ancient books and paintings from charity shops

11) Kate Bush is my idol

Now, it’s time for me to nominate 11 lovely bloggers!

I’ve nominated these blogs because they address the same issues as my own blog: mental health. I did pick a few blogs out of that topic, merely because they inspired me to write more poetry and write creatively.

Your Questions:

1. What do aim to achieve from your blog?
2. What’s your best tip for staying positive?
3. If you could be any character from a film or a book, who would you be?
4. Who is your most inspirational celebrity?
5. What do you consider to be your happy place?
6. What is your favourite hobby?
7. How do you picture yourself in ten years time?
8. Would you travel to the future or to the past?
9. What do you love most about yourself? (Don’t be modest!)

10. What do you hope to achieve in 2015?
11. What do you want to achieve before 2015?

My questions

1. What’s your favourite thing about blogging?

I like knowing that I’m inspiring my readers as well advising them. My blog started off as a diary, and I realised that my experiences and ‘words of wisdom’ could help other experiencing something similar. Blogging about mental health, and even just talking about it, raises awareness. It took me far too long to mention the ‘D’ word (depression) and now I am so used to talking about it, I feel great!-  if only others could do the same!

2. A night with Ryan Gosling vs. an unlimited amount of cheese. Which would you choose?

I did have my doubts about the hunky Mr. Gosling, as I feel I’ve seen better acting from a piece of cardboard. But, besides his inability to act (in my opinion), he does have a rather delicious six-pack. But, I do love my cheese. I’D PICK CHEESE!
3. What’s your favourite colour and why?

Blue; it wasn’t even my favourite colour at first, but it appears that 80% of my clothing is blue.

4. What’s your guilty pleasure (food, drink, music, tv, anything)

I’m guilty for watching ANACONDA perpetually. I think I’ve actually warmed to Nicki Minaj, she’s seems hilarious. I don’t care if her ‘buns’ aren’t real.

5. What’s your party trick?

I can stand on the pinnacle of my tip toes (Similar to Rose in Titanic) and open beer bottles with my teeth… I’m so classy.
6. If you had to choose someone to play you in a film, who would it be?

I’d love to play Uma Thurman in Kill Bill. That film is the very definition of awesome.
7. What’s your daily motivation?

Knowing that I’m so grateful for my friends, family and boyfriend. When I am feeling negative, I just have to remind myself of all that I have.
8. Who’s your career inspiration?

I’d love to campaign and write on behalf of Mind charity, I like writing for a good cause; it’s so fulfilling.
9. Do you have any quirks?

If you asked any of my friends, they would tell you I AM A QUIRK. I everything weird, and eccentric- the list would be endless!

10. What do you hope to achieve in 2015?

I’d like to starting writing a self help guide based on my book, but I’d try and make it funny and entertaining so people can relate a lot more, I suppose it would be like Bridget Jones’ Diary- but less Rom-Com and more teen-angst with realistic outcomes.

11. What do you want to achieve before 2015?

I’d like to raise more awareness for mental health and start campaigning or volunteering for events.

I’d now like to thank Jessica once more and all of my followers for taking up their time to read my blog. I’m so grateful, your blog are all amazing… keep on inspiring others!
