Beautiful Blogger Award

The very lovely Rachel from BeautyQueenUK has very kindly nominated me for the Beautiful Blogger Award!

Rachel's blog is full of fabulous reviews of all kinds of products - from beauty products to home & lifestyle items, her reviews are detailed and concise and well worth a look!

To get this award I have to do 7 things:

   1)  Copy the Beautiful Blogger Award logo and place it in your post. (done!)
   2)  Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog. (done!)
   3)  Tell us 7 things about yourself. (See Below)
   4)  Nominate 7 other bloggers for their own Beautiful Blogger Award, and comment on their blogs to let them know.

Seven Things About Me!

1. I'll only eat cereal with hot milk - I didn't realise this was unusual until I left home!

2. I never ever iron my clothes...I don't actually own an iron! 

3. I run a children's party business - I plan the parties and do the entertainment - we do Princess Parties, Pirate parties, Fairy tea parties, Teddys Bears Picnic parties and Peppa Pig Parties (for which I dress up as a 7 foot Peppa Pig!)

4. I read tarot cards and do clairvoyant readings - I've been reading cards since I was 12, but only started doing readings for strangers about a year ago. It freaks me out a bit but its interesting!

5. I believe in fairies - I know its childish, but I don't care! Being a grown up is over-rated. 

6. I'm terrified of rollercoasters and won't go on any rides that go upside-down - but I LOVE going to fairgrounds anyway, just to walk around and eat candy floss and hot dogs!

7.  I cry when people win at game shows - I don't know why, I think I just get caught up in the emotion/excitement and I'm so happy for the people that I just burst into tears lol.
