I am so grateful to have been nominated for the ‘One Lovely Blog Award’ by Lisa over at Into The Glade. I’ve only been blogging for a month or so now & I am so astounded by how friendly the blogging community is.
I’ve found that bloggers are so supportive of each other & everyone is really approachable. I was recently nominated for a Liebster Award, so to now have this one as well has really given me that push to really improve my blog & post more.
The rules are:
LINK BACK TO THE PERSON WHO NOMINATED YOU
WRITE 7 THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF
NOMINATE 10 PEOPLE
Here are 7 things about me:
1. I LOVE ORGANISING
I could organise in my sleep. I used to be the messiest, most disorganised person & I woke up one morning, decluttered my house, bought a diary & haven’t looked back. I love making a place for every thing & I can’t stand clutter. Typical Virgo! I love organising so much I have even created boxes such as an Emergency Car Breakdown Kit & a Babysitter Box.
2. I LIVE IN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL COUNTY IN THE UK!
I know this is debatable. But I really do love where I live. All year around St. Ives & Cornwall are beautiful. I feel so grateful to have grown up on these beaches & to be surrounded by such stunning scenery. The local community is so friendly & I love having such a big family nearby. The only complaint is the lack of clothes shops! I am so thankful for internet shopping!
3. I AM SO SHY
I find it really hard to meet new people or make conversation with strangers because I am ridiculously shy. When I get to know people I’m much more confident but I am bad at small talk. It’s crazy to me that I’ve started this blog & I am comfortable sharing so much! It’s such a big deal for me to do this & it’s something my partner has told me will be great for me. He was definitely right!
4. MY DAUGHTER WAS NOT PLANNED
I had such a different lifestyle two years ago. I was saving to go travelling, I was such a socialite. I went to the beach everyday, went out for cocktails most nights. I was really messy & I would blow all my wages on clothes. Now I am really organised, a clean freak, a budgeter & instead of coming home at 6am I’m waking up with my beautiful daughter who has such an incredible personality. I wouldn’t change it for the world!
5. I AM WRITING SOME CHILDREN’S PICTURE BOOKS
I love reading. I love creative writing. Throughout my whole childhood you would always find me either curled up in the corner with a book or sat somewhere, pen & paper in hand. Books are so important & it’s always been my dream to be published. I worked in a children’s bookshop when I was 17 & it was one of my favourite jobs to date. The books I’m writing at the moment will be focused on my daughter, her favourite toy Lamb & Cornwall, the beautiful county we live in. My goal is to have one complete by the end of 2015.
6. I HAVE A BUCKET LIST
I am determined to finish my bucket list! My bucket list really motivates me to have fun! When you’re working or even if you’re a stay at home mum, some days can feel like groundhog day. When you come back from a busy week at work you mostly just want to chill out at home. But getting out & doing something fun gives you so much energy & fulfilment! Next on my list to complete is ROCK CLIMBING! Hopefully i’ll do that on my next date with Jamie.
7. I HAVE REALLY BAD ANXIETY
For some reason I go through waves of severe anxiety. It gets to the point where I can’t even leave the house, or I’ll go to the shop to get some food & I won’t be able to get out of the car. I get panic attacks if I’m somewhere I can’t leave quickly, like a train or a supermarket. It’s awful. It’s something that I’m really working on going away. I don’t want it to control my life or affect my everyday decisions, but on a really bad day it does. I am currently waiting to go to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy & I’m hoping that it’ll helps. If you have any other tips or suggestions please message me! I’d love to hear them!
Thank you so much again to the wonderful Lisa over at Into The Glade for nominating me!
I can’t wait to read your seven things! 🙂
