I've just received a blog award! :)

Thank you so very much to Melanie of AdoraBeauty, and to Victoria of making the world beautiful for awarding me with these lovely awards :)

The rules are:
1. Thank the person that gave you the awards, and link back to them.
2. Post seven random things about yourself, and answer the 12 questions!
3. Pass the love to 15 bloggers.
4. Let them know they receive an award :)

Here are my 7 random things...

1) I think I was destined to become vegetarian- at the age of 5 I cried at my school lunch because I couldn't have the veggie option (it was chickpeas, and I LOVE chickpeas!)

2) I love dancing; I can do tap, ballet, Latin and ballroom, salsa and belly dance :) I am pretty useless at street dance though!

3) I used to play the violin when I was at secondary school- I once played at someones wedding!

4) I volunteer at a Brownie group (we have 25 7 to 11 year old girls in our pack) it can be a challenge but lots and lots of fun, I recommend it to anyone :)

5) When I was little I wanted to be the Prime Minister- mainly because I kept seeing John Major on the news and thinking he was silly (I was about 7 though, so I had no clue what was really going on, still don't really...)

6) Despite the fact that I'm 22, I'm still sort of hoping my letter from Hogwarts has been seriously delayed and will actually arrive any day now.

7) I am organised. Too organised... give be a label-maker or something to alphabetise and I'll be happy for hours and hours. I seriously considered alphabetising my nail polish collection (until i realised I can never remember the name of anything)

And the 12 questions:

Name your favorite colour: Purple
Name your favorite song: Pretty much anything from a musical!
Name your favourite dessert: Aside from cake (which can obviously be eaten at any time of day) Tiramisu
What pisses you off: The fact that no one wants to employ me at the moment (I'd be a great employee, I promise!)
When you’re upset, you: I either become the blonde, English version of Monica and clean like a maniac, or watch a really sad film and cry a lot.
Your favourite pet: My hamster, Nibbles
Black or white? Black- anything I own that's white gets dirty very fast- I'm a mess magnet!
Biggest fear: Spiders.
Best feature: I like my eyes- they're very blue :)
Everyday attitude: Happy I suppose.
What is perfection: Coffee, cake, a good book or a long list of blogs, and a warm, cosy corner to read in :)
Guilty pleasure: Cake!

And 15 blogs I tag:

Aimees Nails
Bang Bang Smack Ouch
Drugstore & Bargain Lover
Dyna's Random Blog
Enigmatic Rambles
Every Beauty Addicts Bible
Jewels and Nails
Kawaii Nail Art
Loevens makeup rambles
Ninas bargain beauty
Piece of Pie
The Cats Meow

Well, it's actually 16... either I can't count or I couldn't possibly eliminate another of my favorite blogs!

Thanks again to Melanie and Victoria for passing on the awards, and also a big thank you to everyone who is following my blog- I started writing as I wanted a place to talk about make up (most of my friends are not as keen as I am) and I didn't really think that people might actually want to read it!
