IHi all!

So, it's probably pretty obvious i'm new to this whole blogging world. So I'm absolutely delighted to discover that I have been nominated by Lucy Victoria from Lucy Victoria Blog for The Liebster Award. Now if you're a martian, as I am, it's basically a way to share and discover new blogs you think are worth reading. 

Here's a list of the six rules to The Liebster Award:

1. Acknowledge the blog who nominated you and display the award.
2. Answer eleven questions that the blogger gives you.
3. Give eleven facts about yourself
4. Nominate eleven blogs that you think are deserving of the award. **Only those with under 200 followers**
5. Let the bloggers know you have nominated them.
6. Give them eleven questions to answer.

Here are the questions I was given to answer. This feels like a MySpace bulletin from back in the day and I'm too excited!

1. How long have you had your blog for?
This blog, just over a year. However I have been blogging (secretly) under a different account since I was 14 I think.

2. Whats your favourite song at the moment?
Ellie Goulding - Love Me Like You Do. Because she is the absolute gal and it's a fabby feel-good song.

3. If you could marry one celebrity, who would it be and why?
It would definitely have to Paolo Nutini. Although I am pretty terrible at understanding the Scottish accent.... On second thoughts, Jake Bugg would be a lovely sight to wake up to each morning. Ooh imagine the serenades!

4. Whats one word you hate saying?
Since moving to Manchester three years ago I became very aware of the idiolect that Cleethorpes (where i'm born) has. And we like to make words up for example: "Do you want ote from the shop?" or "I haven't done ote all day"... and it was only last month I suddenly realized that 'ote' isn't even a word at all. And now I hate saying it because it confuses me. I feel like my identity has been taken.

5. If you had the ability to change one thing, what would it be?
Ooh, that's a tough one. I'd probably go back and make myself behave a bit more in school. That way I may not struggle with quick math and might be able to tell the time on an analogue clock...

6. Whats your favourite blog post to date?
It was by an old follower on my old blog years ago about all the nacks her boyfriend used to do that annoyed her and everything was just hilarious. I like personal and funny blogs like that.

7. If you could kiss the last person you kissed again, would you?

Oh god, that's awkward. Yeah I would, I fear the feeling probably isn't mutual right now though.

8. Whats one thing about yourself that wouldn't normally come up in conversation?
I can do a fantastic moonwalk - after many a tequila of course.

9. What is your favourite meal?
Since turning Pescetarian 6 months ago i've had a lot of experiments with my food and I used to hate smoked salmon, but now I love it! With Lidl's finest sauteed potatoes and some green beans, it's bloody loveleh!

10. What is your favourite item of clothing?
My university hoodie. I absolutely love it - practically lived in it. It's currently been taken from me, but it will be back.

11. If you could read one persons blog and only theirs for a year, who would it be?
I couldn't possibly limit myself to just one. It would have to be a personal or music blog though - I couldn't be that out of the know for too long now could I! 


  • My middle name is Ebony.
  • I was in fact named after Raven Symone from That's So Raven yet when she was in The Crosby Show as a tot.
