Creative Blog Award

The rules:

1. Link back to the person who gave you the award.
2. Answer the seven questions below.
3. Award ten other bloggers and let them know.
4. Share seven facts about yourself.

This is a photo of me by the way...feel free to use the original image, I just wanted to change it.

The other day I was lucky enough to receive the Creative Blog Award from the ever so lovely Mollie from musicandmollie! We're friends in real life and previously shared a blog, so if you'd all go and check her's out I'd really appreciate it :) She writes beautifully and her posts are always of such a high quality.

1. Name your favourite song:  At the moment, I don't really have one (I know, what a letdown). It's kinda embarrassing but I'm going to see McFly in April so I've been busy re-listening to the sound of my childhood - Busted and Britney soon joined that playlist! 

2. Name your favourite dessert: Ooo those chocolate puddings with the melty middles and ice cream! But pretty much anything with chocolate in it will do...fruit as a dessert is generally just a disappointment and should be banned...

3. What ticks you off? It depends..most of the time it takes a lot to really annoy me but when in a bad mood the slightest thing will get to me, for example when people are pedantic and purposefully awkward...grrr you just wanna punch them...(I'm not violent really, promise).

4. When I'm upset, I... 
cry. Haha! Sometimes I think it's good to have a cry and just let it all out - but chocolate and a cuddle work just as well.

5. Favourite pet? Well I have 2 cats and one of them has decided he doesn't like me all that much and disappears for days on I'm going to have to go for Poppie, the little fuzz monster that doesn't completely ignore me.

6. Black / White? Hmm...grey? haha...I like black jeans and shoes, but prefer white tops - black can be a bit harsh against my skin tone.

7. Biggest fear? Probably the fact that I have no idea what to do with my life and I really don't want to end up wasting it.

8. Everyday attitude? I couldn't think of a better way to say it than
the following quote...

"As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let us down, probably will. You'll have your heart broken and you'll break others' hearts. You'll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you'll cry because time is flying by. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely, and love like you've never been hurt. Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. You just have to live life to the fullest, tell someone what they mean to you and tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone's hand, comfort a friend, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt, and smile until your face hurts. Don't be afraid to take chances or fall in love and most of all, live in the moment because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back."

9. What is perfection? 
Perfection is imperfection. When you love someone, whether they are family, a lover, a friend or even yourself - you begin to love their imperfections and accept them as who they are. That is how you achieve perfection in my mind - loving someone or being loved for just being you :)

10. Guilty Pleasure? When I let my intellectual side down and secretly watch reality TV shows that 

follow celebrities such as Paris Hilton or the Kardashians...I know it's trash TV but it's so addictive!

This post is rather long so you can see 7 facts about me here on another blog award I received!
