Today I have a different post than usual, which doesn't have much to do with living green. The reason for this is that last week I received my very first blog award - the One Lovely Blog Award! This award was passed on to me by Shelby from Make Me Sparkly, who blogs about her personal style and feeling "sparkly". Seeing as, in my book, 'lovely' is one of the best compliments that one could receive, I wanted to take the time to acknowledge it and give a heartfelt thank you to Shelby.

As with most awards that are going around the blogging world, there are some 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 and tell them about it

7 random things:
  1. I have a brother who is 2.5 years older than me.
  2. I have quite the sweet tooth and I most often (read:daily) indulge in chocolate.
  3. I don't drink coffee - though I do like its smell, I'm not a fan of the taste; I much prefer a cup of tea in the morning.
  4. One of my favourite pastimes is reading; in fact, I learned how to read before going to school, while at home with my grandma, from my brother's school books.
  5. I absolutely love watching sitcoms, I think they're one of the best ways to spend a 30-minute break; my all-time favorite is, without a doubt, "Friends".
  6. I have been dreaming about visiting England my entire life, but I have yet to get there.
  7. The weather outside often influences my mood; other things aside, on sunny, warm days I'm at my happiest, but rainy days can really get me down.
Finally, after much deliberation, I settled on these 15 lovely blogs to pass the award on to:


  1. Nice Post! Glad I found this blog!
