Versatile Blogger Award

Last week I was VERY pleased to receive the Versatile Blogger Award from the fabulous Cait at Sailing to Nowhere. Thanks Cait! (You may also recall that Cait guest blogged here a couple of weeks ago.)

So as part of this award, I have to tell you SEVEN THINGS about myself! Here we go!

1. I'm currently listening to Nicki Minaj. At first listen, I didn't like her album, but now I love it! I love lots of music, in no particular order - Shakira, Katy Perry, Fall Out Boy, 30 Seconds to Mars, Enrique (swoon), Mumford and Sons, J-Lo, Timbaland, Dido.....
2. My favourite place in the world that I have visited is New York. Followed very closely by Melbourne! Oh, and Fiji, and Samoa, and Abaco...!
Excuse the mushroom head!!! ;)
3. I have (TOUCH WOOD) never broken a bone in my body.
4. For five years I worked part-time at British health and beauty store Boots the Chemist, mainly in the photo lab. Hence my cupboards still being stuffed full of makeup and toiletries five years later!!

5. In my former life I was a magazine features writer and have been published in The Sun, The Daily Mirror and loads of women's weeklies like Take A Break, Chat and Reveal. I also had my own fashion and beauty column for a while and LOVED IT! :)
6. I've been a strict vegetarian for over six years. Sometimes it's hard work but I hate the thought of eating a 'dead thing'!

7.  And lastly, I have FINALLY made a dental appointment - for tomorrow afternoon!!! OMG!!!!!!!! 

I am passing this award onto these lovely bloggers:
1. City Style
2. such stuff as dreams are made on
3. Missouri Daze
4. Aprilia Love
5. Wobisobi
6. Dressology HQ
7. Oh to be a muse

Share the love ladies!!!

Oh and a quick PS - there's been several earthquakes again today in Christchurch. This is terrible for those living in Ch'ch (my bf's sister and her fiancee live there and it's just all getting a bit too much after so many months of it). Fortunately no one has been hurt today. I'm on the North Island so am not affected by it, but our thoughts are with all those in Canterbury right now.


  1. Earthquakes? OMG! Hope that they will soon stop.
    Congrats on the award Sadie!

  2. Congrats on your award! Well deserved!
    I've never broken a bone either :)

  3. I am so sorry to here about the earthquakes. But am glad that everyone is safe.
    Also I am happy to hear you got a dentist appointment. I know you are nervous but I am sure after the pain is gone you will be glad you did.
    Congrats on the award and thanks for sharing. I will be posting about it in a few days.

  4. You are the award queen^^ I love that photo of you in New York - you're so not a mushroom head!

  5. Ohhh lovely, so glad you have made an appointment to see the dentist! I hope you are ok! :)
    I used to be a vegetarian for 3 years but started eating meat again about a year ago. I do think I can go back to being vegetarian but it was hard work and I wasn't eating the right foods as I was so busy and lacking nutrients! :(
    I so want to visit NY - I'm thinking next year. It looks amazing and I reckon I would probably fall in love with that city!
    Thank you for passing this on to me, you're a real doll!
