An Award!

Wowzers! I was awarded the Stylish Blogger Award over at Tea & Sympatico and have to post 7 random facts about myself and re-award 7 more bloggers. So... here goes!

1. I only work part time and hardly have any money as a result, but keep putting off finding a new job because I love having so much spare time. It's far more important to me, to be doing the things I love, than to be working and earning money! Then again... some things I love are impossible to do without money. It's a Catch-22.

2. I am always hungry. I'm never satisfied. I always think about food. This is not a good thing when you're trying to stay slim!!!

3. There are very few people in this world who I can tolerate without getting majorly pissed off with after about a day. I can imagine I am a really annoying person too though. As a result I have very few close friends! I think I prefer my dog to most people.

4. My new love is my iPhone, I am just obsessed with the Instagram and Hipstamatic photo apps. I adore photography and have an account over at Redbubble which is really good fun. Although lately I'm using my iPhone way more than my Nikon D80, just for the fact that I take my phone everywhere I go and hardly ever have my big camera on me. Or maybe it's pure laziness...

5. Which brings me nicely to the fact that I am probably the laziest person I know. I can procrastinate all day, I could sleep all day. I start things and never finish them - especially when reading books, trying to follow up on ideas, or trying to keep up with a blog. However, that said, I am an extremely productive person when I do get my ass in gear. I'm excellent at organising and prioritising, so am a real quick worker when I need to be and always finish tasks super quick and super thoroughly when I put my mind to it.

6. There's nothing better than discovering new, amazing music. My new favourite band has to be Health, and my other favourites of all time have to be Black Dice, Holy Fuck, and Liars. I hate questions in quizzes like "what song sums up your life?", "what lyrics best describe you?" or "what is your favourite song of all time?". How are you meant to choose? That is ridiculous. The reason I never got an iPhone in the past was that they didn't make one large enough to contain all my favourite music - so how do you expect me to choose one?!

7. I have a few fears: Earwigs creep the hell out of me, I am extremely scared of dying before I get to do and say everything I want to do and say, and I get very panicked if my routine is disrupted in any form. Yes I'm rather OCD, I like to plan, I like to know what I'm doing, where I'm going, who I'll be with and what I'm eating well in advance of whatever occurrence is approaching... it's just one of my many idiosyncrasies!

I tag:

Identity V
Pixie Rose Dresses
Vegan Crunk
Maple Spice
Tofu Vegan Zombie
Vegan In Brighton
Vegan But Not Scary

Although I can imagine you guys have already done it...
I have done a similar one in the past too, but hey they are FUN!


  1. I can totally relate to 1,3, and 5. Five especially. I'm always amazed at how fast my day goes by when I do absolutely nothing at all, haha.

  2. btw thats's blooming hard, can't think of 7, only one!! lol

  3. Pixierose: I found it really hard too, especially as I've done it once before... so that's 14 separate facts. Pretty difficult as I'm not that exciting! ;)

    Ximena: Glad I'm not the only one, so!!

  4. wow - I LOVE Health, Liars and Black Dice (although I can't walk and listen to Black Dice at the same time - they do something weird to my brain). Also, I totally agree with 2,3 and 5. I'm starting to think that I might be the northside version of you (except I find earwigs strangely charming)!

  5. just to let you know i will defo give it a go asap!!x

  6. Naturetable, that is really weird! I don't come across people with my exact taste in music very often! Black Dice are just amazing! And in relation to numbers 2, 3 & 5 - maybe we should meet up some day, and *2* eat tons of good vegan food so we are satisfied, *3* hopefully be able to tolerate each other, and *5* it will probably not happen because we'll be too lazy to organise it LOL! :-p
