Stylish Blogger Award

Thankyou Studentmum for nominating me for a Stylish Blogger Award and thank you for your support in my blog!  You were my first follower!!!  As far as the four rules go i.e. 1.  Thank and link nominator;
2.  copy and paste the award; 3.  share seven things about yourself and
4.  nominate 15 of your favourite bloggers and tell them - some of these rules may be a problem, as you will see.

These are some of my favourite blogs - some I've been reading for as long as I've been a blogger, so I apologise in advance if you've already received an award!

Seven things about me -

1.  I'm not really 'internet savvy' - hence the inability to copy and paste the award.  It won't work!!!!
2.  I don't have a lot of confidence
3.  I procrastinate regularly
4.  I love chocolate
5.  I can be extremely lazy one day and extremely hyper the next
6.  One day I hope to live in a foreign country for at least two years
7.  I'm obsessed with the zodiac and need to know everyone's sign when I meet them in order to suss them out!


  1. Hello! Thank you so much for my award!! I shall post later on today. How lovely of you to think of me! Sarah x

  2. Hi Caz,

    Thanks for the nomination, I nominated you right back.

    I had to copy and paste the picture to my computer, then load it to the blog. That was the only way I could get it to work. I wasn't able to copy and past directly from blog to blog.

    We sound a lot alike, must be because we are both Libras, lol.

  3. Thanks for nominating me!!! I have never received an award before! I am still trying to figure out how to do this!!! I am determined though!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. By the way, you already live in a foreign country! Australia is foreign to me! Hee hee! I guess we all live in a foreign country to someone!

  5. oh...I am a Taurus unless you go by the "new" zodiac which I refuse to do because I AM A TAURUS, DAMNIT!

  6. Last comment, promise! First of all, I lied (not intentionally). This is my second award but my first one was so long ago and I didn't know how to post it so I forgot all about it. Thanks to you, I had to figure it out! Yay! Second, I right clicked on the image from the blog who nominated you (I don't know how to do this with a Mac tho) and saved the image to my desktop. Then I went to the design spot for my blog, clicked on "add a gadget" then "add a picture" then uploaded it from my desktop. Then I could add a title and caption. Hope this helps!

  7. Hahahaha! I lied...THIS is my last comment! I nominated you back but you don't have to go through the whole process all over again!

  8. Brandywine and Nicki - thanks for trying to help. I tried to copy and paste and it just won't work!!!! It seems to be anything electrical just refuses to work when I'm around!!


If you don't have anything nice to say, please don't say anything at all!

I've done it!!!

Well, I've finally done it!! Got accepted into Uni AND created a blog!!! After searching for insightful websites to help me tackle my journey into academia at my ripe old age and coming up with nil, I decided to start one of my own. I hope this blog will encourage anyone who has ever doubted their own abilities, to put one foot in front of the other and achieve their ambitions, desires, matter what they are. If anyone has any inspiring stories to share, I would love to hear them. I love an inspiring story!!!
