Two more awards!

Hello all! Hope you had a great weekend. The wind was SO loud last night I couldn't sleep even with earplugs in!!
Over the last few days I've been given two lovely blogging awards:
The One Lovely Blog Award given by Alexandria at A Style of No Style
And another One Lovely Blog award from Laura at StyLAURista!

Here are the rules:
1. Link back to the person who passed you the award
2. Share 7 random things about yourself
3. Award 15 blogs
4. Drop them a note to tell them about it


1. I learned Welsh from the ages of 12 to 14 then dropped it as a subject to continue with Spanish instead.

2. I used to be a CSI-aholic (not any more), and was pleased when I realised that I'd visited all three cities in one year - I started in Miami in June, New York in November and hit Las Vegas in April! Whoop!

Vegas Baby!!

 3.  I have TINY ears and TINY hands (sadly this does not relate to my thighs or hips!).

Smaller hands than Marilyn Monroe!

4. My favourite cocktail is called Betty Knows Best and is a mix of alcohol, chi, passionfruit puree and basil...YUM.

5. My favourite cuisine is anything Mexican (as a veggie Mexican, Turkish, Greek or Italian always seem to have the best non-meat options!)

6. I am a wee bit homesick at the moment because since being in NZ I have managed to go home 5 times in under two years. This is my longest period of non-Welsh-family-shopping-fun!

At the top of Twmbarlwm in South Wales - VERY windy!

7. My favourite thing in the world is a cwtch. That means a little snuggly cuddle in Wales :) 

 I nominate these 15 blogs:
1. Missouri Daze
2. Positive Ponderings
3. Such Stuff as Dreams are Made On
4. My Modern Vintage
5. Sailing to Nowhere
6. Almost Delightful
7. Fashion Fractions
8. Don't Call Me Fashion Blogger
9. Fashionably Numb
10. Molto Fashion
11. Aprilia Love
12. Wobisobi
13. Oh to be a muse
14. Adventures of a girl from the Naki
15.City Style

  8. haha, I love the word cwtch! So cute, and I will have to use that! Also, congratulations! You definitely deserve those awards!


  9. Congratulations on the awards, sweetie! I always love reading these type of posts because I get to know what I have in common with other bloggers, and wouldn't you know, I used to speak Welsh, too! My grandad's family is mainly in Ystradgynlais and although he was raised in Canada, he was raised speaking Welsh, and when he babysat me as a little girl, he spoke to me in Welsh. I only remember little bits of it now, of course- it's not the most practical language to know, but it's fun because the pronunciation is so different!

  10. Congratulations and thank you so much!! I feel so honored Thank you!!

  11. thank you sweetie! that cocktail sounds incredible! and i agree about best veggie options :-)
