100 Followers :)

followers

Hey everyone!

I’ve just come to quickly say that I’ve reached 100 followers! My current follower count is 104, although, the very first follow is by myself, so I”d count it as being 103 followers 🙂

Not including myself as one of my followers, I reached 100 followers on 27th September 2017. I WOULD have blogged about it on the day, but I was so extremely busy with induction week at University, and have since just been generally busy with University.

Thank you to each and every one of you for deciding to give me a follow! I’m glad you enjoy reading my posts.

Heya!

I’ve been nominated for this award by Lise at Lushtivity. Thank you lovely!

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Share 7 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate up to 10 other bloggers of your choice.
  • Link your nominees and let them know of your nomination.


Seven facts about me:

  • I left school when I was 14 years old! I just hated school, so I pestered to be taken out until my mother agreed to it! I was technically home educated, but didn’t hold any official qualifications of any kind until I had finished my year at college when I was 20 years old, after deciding to pursue an education at 19 years. During that year, I took GCSE Mathematics, GCSE English and an Access to Higher Education Diploma in Biological Sciences.
  • My family moved to Bulgaria when I was 15 years old. Around 10 days after moving there, I found a litter of abandoned puppies. I did my best to take care of them, feeding them goat’s milk from a baby bottle. Unfortunately they all died shortly after, apart from one. I named him Pippin, and he was my companion for the 4 years that I was in Bulgaria! I didn’t have other friends while living there, but Pippin kept me company! He died one winter, just a few months before I flew back to the UK.

  • While living in Bulgaria, me and my family lived in a mansion! It was an ex-government building of some sort. We lived in a little village in the East of the country. I loved how peaceful and natural my life was there – I miss it very much!

     

  • I live in an adorable flat in North London with my partner! We’ve lived together for pretty much the entire 4 years that we have been together. I first moved into his mother’s home when we were 19 and were just buddies, and we started renting our flat together last September.

  • I have never, ever had a tattoo – but I really want one!
  • I wear glasses, full time, 100%! I actually really can’t see too well without them, and the only reason most of my photos are of me without them on is either because my glasses were broken/lost at the time or because I took them off for the purpose of the photo.
  • My hair has been a lot of different colours in the past. Red, purple, black, burgundy, orangey, bright blonde, blonde with purple, black with purple, natural with a black fringe, magenta… I started dying my hair when I was 12 years old – the first time was just my natural hair with some permanent purple splodges in there (I thought that looked really cool.) 3 years ago I decided to dye and cut my hair one last time, before growing my hair natural. It has been completely natural since around a year ago, after having it dyed for 10 years!

    I really can’t be bothered to nominate anyone honestly. It takes me a while to link up everyone’s sites – if you are reading this and want to have this award and do this tag, go ahead!

The weekend!

Finally, it’s the weekend! Now I can blog…

I’ve been waiting all week to just be able to write my heart out on my blog.

I love blogging. Just writing and writing about whatever it is that I feel like that day.

There’s so much I want to write about too. Places I’ve traveled to, get ready with me’s, fashion, astronomy, education, relationships, mbti, making a house a home… I want this blog to be like a little journal of my life and so far, it appears that my life is just Lush!!! I do love my Lush, but there’s a lot more to me than just that, believe it or not 😉

I have so many ideas and things that I want to write about… Once I truly get in the zone, I may never stop writing!

10 Question WordPress Tag

How long have you been blogging on WordPress? It will have been 2 years on the 15th December 🙂

How many blog posts are there on your blog? 64! 🙂

What was your favourite post to write? I’m not sure because I really have so many posts… I’m going to say my Leaving University post. Writing that post was just a massive weight off of my shoulders and helped me to stop worrying about the whole thing. It was also a massive decision for me to make and one that I am very glad about. That post signifies to me the end of a horrid period of time and the start of a much, much better one!

Who’s your favourite blogger? I don’t follow any huge bloggers, but I have been really enjoying reading glittersandmayhem’s blog posts (Glitters and Mayhem). Her posts are very sincere, genuine and down to Earth. I also like the types of things she posts about – I like that her blog isn’t just a beauty blog, but also a travel blog, fashion blog, lifestyle blog… Many of my favourite topics all rolled up into one lovely blog 🙂

Who would you like to collaborate with? Um… again, I’m not really a popular blogger and honestly, the idea of collaborating with someone for a blog post sounds rather boring!

Where do you see your blog in the future? I haven’t thought of the future of my blog much to be honest! I guess I see it ultimately just… gaining some popularity? I never see it being a major blog, and I don’t think I would like it if it did! I don’t intend to ever stop blogging though – I sort of think of it as my online journal.

What quote or saying do you live by? Um… I guess that you only have one life so never stop working hard toward your dreams! That isn’t an actual quote, so I guess something like “If you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it.”

Why did you start blogging? Because I did not want to be bored over Christmas the year I started my blog, and because I did want to have a platform where I could express myself!

What challenges have you faced so far? So far, my biggest challenge with blogging has been… I haven’t really had challenges… I guess maybe my biggest challenge so far has been balancing my content? My blog posts now are mostly Lush reviews, and although I don’t want the amount that I post about Lush to be lessened, I wouldn’t mind the amount that I post about my education / life / plans / travel etc to grow, so that the distributions are fairly even.

What are your inspirations for blog posts? Let me thing. What has inspired me to write my blog posts? I think the main source of my inspiration has to be YouTube. I first started watching Lush reviews on youtube, I watch YouTubers talking about their lives and well, I don’t know. A YouTube channel for a YouTuber is like a journal of their life a lot of the time, and I guess that idea really appealed to me (minus the being in videos part!) There are’t any specific YouTubers, just YouTube in general 🙂


I hope you enjoyed this blog post! I tag all my followers, give it a go! 🙂
