The Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Thank you very much to Rachel @ Confessions of a Book Geek for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.
I am very grateful as Rachel inspires me quite a bit as well. I don't know how she manages to write all her content and work full time, though! She deserves a dedication award, for sure!

Here are the rules for the award:

  • Thank and link the amazing person who nominated you. 
  • List the rules and display the award. 
  • Share seven facts about yourself. 
  • Nominate 15 other amazing blogs and comment on their posts to let them know they have been nominated. 
  • Optional: Proudly display the award logo on your blog and follow the blogger who nominated you.

  • Seven Facts about Me:
    • I love catalogs more that I ever thought was possible. I love circling things and folding the pages to remind myself. I got an Ikea catalog the other day which I have read front to back four times. I got an Argos one yesterday which I am 20% through and have already marked several things. Wilksinsons wouldn't give me one which made me really upset!
    • Since starting my new job, I have barely touched my Kindle and/or my laptop. I really need to change that. Recently we have bought a desk and created a little office space, so I hope to take advantage of this soon.
    • I really hate feeling awkward. We are currently watching the Apprentice, and the dress down from Lord Sugar is making me feel really awks! Blech.
    • I made poached eggs for the first time today and they were BRILLIANT.
    • I got my hair cut yesterday, but I'm terrible at explaining what I want and now it's almost two inches shorter than I wanted it!
    • I am terrible at thinking about facts about myself? Like really terrible, It's taken me four hours to think of five facts. They're just things that have happened in my life recently. I'm so sorry. Also maybe a quick one, I hate cinnamon so I constantly have to ask whether it's in cakes and it drives everyone mad. I'm not fussy about food, but cinnamon and marzipan are two things that are really gross to me!
    And now for the nominations!
    Since it's been about two months I don't feel bad for nominating Rach again!

    Hope everyone is well, hoping to write something soon as I have just read and loved The Raven Boys.
    Gosh, I haven't read very much in ages!


    1. Thank you for the nomination!Much appreciated, even though I don't do awards :)

      I love IKEA catalogs! I even go through old ones with items no longer on sale.. Ahhhh, new one should arrive any time now, it's been ages since I got one! :D
      And cinnamon and marzipan are two of my favorite things! :O :D

      1. I need to get some back issues of the IKEA catalogs!! I thought I was the only one, but I caught my boss at work getting excited about a catalog a few weeks ago! Hehe :)

    2. Aw, thanks for thinking of me :)

    3. Thanks for nominating me! :D I've actually been meaning to read The Raven Boys for awhile now--I MUST get onto that. :)
