One lovely blog...Awesome!!!

So yesterday there I was, getting my Blogtober on, when I got the sweetest surprise from Charlotte in my comments box!
Charlotte's blog is one of the latest that have been added to my reading list (she's over at A love triangle), what I love about Charlotte is that she is so sweet, but straight forward with every post. Although she's very young she has a mature writing style, no beating around the bush, no niceties, just plain honesty. I think what draws me to her blog is the fact that we actually have quite a bit in common but still alot of differences, which makes for interesting reading!!

So what was the surprise?? Charlotte nominated me for the "One Lovely Blog Award"! I had no idea what it was, so I've looked into it a little. Nominations are chosen by fellow bloggers for newer or up-and-coming bloggers. The goal is to help give recognition to, and also help the new blogger reach more readers. It also recognises blogs that are considered to be “lovely” by the fellow-blogger who chose them. So it's pretty much like a chain letter of the blogging world, but what I love about it is that it encourages new bloggers to keep posting their content because there is someone that enjoys reading it.

Charlotte thank you so much for nominating me. You put the biggest smile on my face yesterday and I really appreciate the nomination! You are awesome!

The rules for the nomination are as follows. You must:
  1. Thank the person who nominated you. - Done!
  2. Add the "One Lovely Blog Award" logo onto your post/blog. - Done!
  3. Share seven facts about yourself. - Done! See below.
  4. Nominate 15 bloggers you admire/read and inform them bu commenting on their blog. - In progress!
7 facts about myself:
 - I still sing my primary school anthem every now and then. I loved that place.
 - I can blow bubbles out of my right eye's tear duct.
 - I am ridiculously clumsy. A couple of weeks ago I fractured my toe while skipping!!
 - Every pet I have had's name contained the letter Y (except for my first dog, her name was Princess).
 - I have a weakness for chocolate, especially dark chocolate - if its Lindt even better!
 - My favourite fruit is watermelon.
 - I'm a proper mixed breed! My father's family's bloodline is French & English/Afrikaans(South African), my mother's family's bloodline is Portuguese, English (London) & Afrikaans.

15 Blogs I read, only 15?? Ha! This is proving to be quite difficult!
