A little bit of love- Blogger Appreciation Award

I was absolutely shocked to be awarded two awards in the space of two weeks. Rachel over at Treat Party awarded me yesterday with the Blogger Appreciation Award which I am absolutely thrilled by. It's pretty cool meeting someone that has the same first AND middle name as you (we are both Rachel Elizabeth's!!). Her blog is lovely so it's a real honour!

The rules of the award: 

- Thank the person who gave you the award by linking their blog in your post
- Answer the 4 questions
- Award the blogger appreciation award to new followers/ fellow bloggies as you like

The questions:
  • How long have you been blogging?
 I started this blog in January this year on a complete whim with no idea of the lovely blogging community that were awaiting me!
  • What are 1-2 reasons why you started blogging? 
I had no real idea about the blogging world and just wanted to give it a go and see where it would lead to and now I can't imagine not blogging! I love that it is your own piece of the huge internet!!
  • What are the types of blogs that you visit and read?
I really enjoy reading fashion/lifestyle and beauty blogs as it's great to see what everyone else it wearing, what products they recommend, places that are worth visiting. I also enjoy seeing what people have baked/cooked/made. Anything with a little bit of inspiration and some impressive photography!
  • What is 1 thing that you as a blogger would like to improve on?
I really want to get a better camera so I can do my outfits, products justice! However, I might have to wait a while due to being a skint student so for now I'm going to try and post more frequently.

Who am I awarding?

Shen at Shenmoo writes a lovely mix of interesting posts with a great collection of Instagram snaps!

Sophie writes Miss Sophie Olivia as a new follower I was inspired by her recent post about smear tests, something that people are so reluctant to talk about yet she tackled the issue brilliantly.

Rebecca at What Rebecca Said writes some great posts in a nice light-hearted manner.

Check these girls and their blogs out- I really recommend them! Thank you to everyone who reads my blog and leaves their lovely comments, I read every single one and they make me really happy! 

Whilst I'm doing a post I thought I would share with you my FOTD :) (I'm looking slightly tired after my epic journey back home on the train yesterday with my beast of a suitcase!) xxx

Lips: 'Brighton Rock'- Topshop//Stripe Top: Zara//Denim Jacket: Primark


  1. Congratulations on the award Rachel! =) I love reading lifestyle/fashion blogs as well, especially ones from bloggers in different parts of the world. I think it's just so interesting to see how the fashion and the culture is in another country! =) (I'm also guilty of food and beauty blogs, hehe) I love your mini FOTD/OOTD at the end, I'm loving stripes paired with a denim jacket or a blazer! :) I'm a new follower of your blog, looking forward to seeing more posts from you! =)


  2. Thank you, Rachel!:) It's lovely to be awarded and I'm so glad you enjoyed my post.
