Stylish Blogger Award

Hi everyone,

I am so late in posting this. Sending all my thanks to Pauline as she sent me a wonderful "Stylish Blogger Award" - my very first one! I couldn't be more delighted...



As part of the award, you have the opportunity to pass on the award to 8 other bloggers that you admire and answer some questions about yourself.

By accepting this award, I now have to:


1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award. So, thank you Pauline!
2. Share 8 things about yourself
3. Pass it on to 8 bloggers
4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their award

So now I need to think of 8 things about me! I don't like talking much about myself, so here goes!!

1. I am a proud wife to the wonderful, creative, supportive Jon and mum of two beautiful, spirited little boys aged 7 and 4 and half who are all truly wonderful, creative and bright.

2. I love the outdoors...I live very close to the Cotswolds and think it is one of the most pretty places in the world. My idea of heaven is sitting in a meadow full of wild flowers!!

3. I have recently become A LOT fitter - cycling and as a result I have lost 2 stone - something I'm very proud of...finally shifting the last of my baby weight (my baby is now 4!!! and I felt it was time to make the change). when I started I never thought I would get this far...an important lesson for me to have more faith in my own ability to stick with something once I've started!!

4. I am very close to my family and very lucky to have them all living very close by.

5. I am a big English Tea drinker!!

6. I love Live comedy and Live Music (too many bands to mention here) but Coldplay, Blur and Radiohead stand out as fantastic memories!!

7. I graduated in 1997 with a BA Hons degree in Social Sciences

8. I am a qualified Image Consultant and am looking to kickstart my business - particularly the Colour Analysis side again this year after a break to bring up my boys!!(Colour Analysis involves learning which colours will bring out the very best in you using your own unique skin tone, hair & eye colour as a guide)

Here are 8 wonderful, stylish bloggers who I am truly inspired by and delighted to be able to pass on this award to :-)
