You Are Lovely

My friend Sara from A Flutterby In Stitches recently nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award!

proper-one-lovely-blog-award I started this blog for a couple of reasons. Firstly I read a lot. Always have. But I wanted to challenge myself to start thinking more about the books I read, and putting it out there in a coherent fashion seemed like a good way to ensure I give it a red hot go.

Secondly not many of my friends read as much as I do, and I like talking about the books I read! Or at least recommending the ones I like to people who will (hopefully) appreciate it.

Thirdly, as a bit of an escape from work. I’m a nurse educator, and my workday can be intense, out of control, and just plain BUSY.

For this award I need to tell you 7 things about myself.

1. My commute to work is a 2 hour round trip on the train, which is great because I get to read 🙂

2. My newest hobby is making my own soy candles. I can lose an entire afternoon playing around with colours and scents, and I love finding interesting jars, cups, tins to put candles in, and I love giving homemade gifts

3. Along with novels, I’m also addicted to chocolate

4. My natural hair colour is medium brown, but I colour it cherry red.

5. I am an introvert. My mood (and fatigue levels) dictate how strongly those tendencies come out

6. I can’t function on minimal sleep. At all. Despite being a total night owl, the fact that I have to get up early for work means that I’m in bed by 9:30 usually. Yikes, hello Grandma…

7. My favourite wine is Moscato. Usually Brown Brothers

I’ve only been writing this blog for a short time, so I’m still just starting to make contact with others! In view of this, I’m nominating 2 blogs for this award:

Mary from Bookfan – I love reading her reviews and looking at her new book purchases!

Hannah from So Obsessed With – Her thoughts on book related topics are interesting and well written. Plus, I loved her obsession post on following and commenting habits. Glad I’m not the only one wondering how it all works and how other bloggers do it!

  1. I’m addicted to chocolate, too. MAJORLY. I’ve been working on getting healthier lately and was so happy to find a recipe for Choco-mole using avocados, which means delicious chocolate AND a healthy snack. 🙂 And yay for wine! My sister-in-law loves Moscato wine … I personally love a good Malbec.

    Great post! 🙂
