The Versatile Blogger Award

Many, many months ago, I was nominated by the absolutely gorgeous Jessica from Kaleidoscopes & Polka Dots for the Versatile Blogger Award. I was absolutely stunned to be nominated for something like this, because while versatility is something I always strive to achieve, I'm never entirely sure that it's a place I get to. Regardless, thank you so much, Jessica, I seriously appreciate it!

Here are how the rules go...

  1. Show the award on your blog.
  2. Thank the person who nominated you.
  3. Share 7 facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 other blogs.
  5. Link your nominee's blogs and let them know.

7 Facts About Me

1. I only tend to ever own one pair of jeans at a time -- and I usually wear nothing but jeans all year round, so I feel like I go through them quicker pretty quickly.

2. I also only usually wear flats -- and the same pair -- so I go through them really quickly. I only replace them once they're about to literally fall apart on my feet and I'm pretty much walking barefoot -- and the quickest it's taken me to get through a pair is six weeks.

3. I am a Jane Austen nutter. If there's an adaptation, I've seen it.

4. I'm really, really lazy about washing my hair. I just find that I can't be bothered at the end of the day, so I'll intermittently use dry shampoo until I look at it and go, "Yeah, no, wash it. Now."

5. I used to be an archaeologist -- kinda. I was doing an archaeology degree for a while, and even travelled to England to do fieldwork (and when you're doing fieldwork, you're referred to as an archaeologist).

6. I have the unfortunate yet delightful talent of being able to pick up accents with relative ease. I already lean towards sounding British, but it gets stronger the more nervous I am.

7. My hair was pin-straight as a little girl, a fuzzy mess when I was a teenager, and now as an adult it's got a curly/wavy Hermione Granger thing going on.

And the blogs I nominate are:

  1. Danielle || Confessions of a Beauty School Dropout
  2. Emma || Peace Love Vintage
  3. Eli || Marshmellow's Diary
  4. Iqra || The Blushing Giraffe
  5. Carmen || Paint, Powder, and Polish
  6. Amy || Lust for Beauty
  7. Sarah || Sazbomb
  8. Bess || Bess Oates
  9. Hannah || Hannah Butterworth
  10. Krista || Love, Krista
If any of you above have already been nominated for this award in the recent or distant past, I apologise! It was hard to get together a list of fifteen blogs, which is the main reason it's taken me as long as it has to get this post up and running online. Please be sure to let me know if you take on the award and nominate other blogs!


  1. Oh I also can't stand washing my hair! Such a chore. I actually forget a lot of the time and then don't have enough time in the morning so out comes the dry shampoo again!

    1. I know exactly how you feel! It also takes so long to dry, I hate having to wash it during the week!
