One Lovely Blog Award

Thank you Salha for nominating me for the 'One Lovely Blog Award'! Please show her some love over on her blog (HERE), it's great!

Rules of the award:
1. Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog
2. List the rules and display the award
3. Add 7 facts about yourself
4. Nominate 15 other bloggers
5. Follow on blogger the person who nominated you.

7 Facts About Me:
1. I was born on the 30th of September 1995, which makes me 19 years old.
2. I have a younger sister named Beth, she is 15 years old.
3. I'm a 2nd year law student at the University of Edinburgh. I don't actually want to qualify as a lawyer, I'm just interested in the subject and figured it would be a great degree to have.
4. I play viola. I started doing graded exams in high school and managed to obtain a Merit in Grade 5. I've since stopped receiving lessons and I'm part of two String Groups/Orchestras at University for fun in my spare time.
5. I've seen McFly live 15 times and McBusted once. I've never actually met them, but I bumped into Danny Jones in a nightclub in Edinburgh last year.
6. I've been writing blog posts for 4 years and would love to take a journalism course after I pass my University degree. I would have studied Journalism at University, but I wanted to expertise in a subject area I love (law) first, so I have in-depth knowledge to write about in the future.
7. I'd love to make YouTube videos in the future. I have about 5/6 videos that I've filmed and edited already, but I'm too scared to post them online.

My 15 Nominees:
Leah and Rachel, Beyond the Velvet
Becca, Being Becca
Sinead, Sinead Green
Joanne, Joanne Singer
Harmony, OwMaKnee
Stefany, Black Irony
Amelia and Grace, Mandeville Sisters

If you are a blogger, I nominate you! If you don't have a blog, comment below with seven facts about you - I'd love to hear them :)

Thanks again Sahla for the nomination!


  1. Thank you so much for nominating me and my sister! This means so much to us! We both absolutely love your blog and I really enjoyed reading you facts too! Well done for keeping a blog up for four years! That's amazing!

    1. You're very welcome - I love your blog :)
      Awwww, thank you both so much, it means a lot to me!


  2. It's so cool that you bumped into Danny Jones! Bombay Bicycle Club were in a club in Portsmouth (my uni) a few months ago, regretted not going out that night!

    1. It was so random, I was dancing literally centimetres away from his now-wife!
      Oh wow! I would've definitely been gutted too :(


  3. Awww Alix thank you for the nomination! :) That's so very sweet of you. I'll do a post in the next few days!
    Can't believe you've seen McFly live so many times!! Wowzer - I used to love them!!! Haven't listened to their music in years!!

    1. You're very welcome, Jade!
      I knooow, it's crazy. They definitely are a blast from the past, but I'm glad they're still around :)


  4. Thanks for nominating me! :) I'll get round to doing this soon! I was obsessed with McFly when I was younger, I think I went to see them about 5 times and I've been to a signing, but that's nothing compared to your 15! I wanted to see McBusted but no one would go with me! :O xx

    1. You're welcome, Becca!
      I'm super jealous - I always wanted to go to a signing but the wristbands were always gone by the time I got there :( To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of McBusted, but I'll still go and see them as long as all of McFly are involved!


  5. I wish I did a law degree! I did french and philosophy and it's pretty useless without a masters!

    1. I'm enjoying my degree, but the work load is pretty insane just now :( Well done on getting your degree, even if the subject matter isn't useful, you've still gained lots of experience employers will be after!



Thanks for your comment and for sharing your thoughts - I read and appreciate every single one of them x
