Liebster Award

That lovely little minx over at Sonia Styling tagged we with a Liebster Award.. a what you say? The Liebster Award is given to blogs by other bloggers to say they think you are pretty sweet, to promote others and just generally share the love.

She has given me 10 questions to answer so here goes..

Which song do you consider your Personal Anthem and why? 
Oh dear I am afraid this shows how you can change and age so much but sometimes certain things just stay put, my music taste is stuck back from my late teens to mid twenties. I don't have a personal anthem but bring my dark dirty drum 'n' bass and I flood with happy memories of my brother on a microphone, long London nights and hubby and I sharing the start of our life together

What is the kindest thing anyone has done for you? 
It has to be my husband being kind enough to not only take on the stress of being the sole breadwinner in our family when we had two young children but also trusting and backing me to invest the savings we had in DTLL. I am grateful everyday to have him by my side 

If you could only wear one colour for the rest of your life, what would it be and why? 
Khaki for sure, I am still a Tomboy at heart and its a fab colour with anything, suits my skin tone all year long and is not too dark for daywear whilst looking stunning at night

If you were invisible, where would you go? 
It should be somewhere silly like David Beckhams bathroom huh?! 

You’ve just won the lottery. What would be your first money-is-no-object indulgent purchase? 
A holiday house with chef and cleaner. I assume I am still me and currently that would mean that work must go on so whilst I lust after a holiday I would adore to remove my family and I to a luxury pad with no chores and some fab food for some R&R..

What are you famous for in your group of friends?  
Training too much, being a multi tasker, taking lots of photos, loving dogs, having a mild OCD issues and lucky enough to have married a keeper.

What is the one thing that should be taught in school that isn’t already? 
Photography.. some schools I am sure offer it as an option I am sure but life through a lens is a different view for everyone at different stages but it is always a time to reflect, tap into your creativity whilst never really being right or wrong

Which restaurant would you most like to dine at – anywhere in the world?
Easy Heston  Blumenthal's Fat Duck in the UK, I will go next year for sure x

If you were a cocktail, which one would you be and why? 
I can only be a Hendricks... add it to anything and I love it... that said a champagne cocktail is a fave of mine..
Nah I am a Bloody Mary.. Heathy Base with a Naughty Sidekick :)

How do you want to be remembered?
As loyal and dedicated. 
I like to think that I am as I often get hurt by others when I assume my loyalty is reciprocated and then finding it is not. 
My dedication could either be seen as passion or stubbornness, it is both but I hope it is remembered as dedication

  1. The only problem is, our answers would be so darn similar!! But I will have a go. xxx

  2. But that is why I have to ask new questions :)

  3. Hugging my hot water bottle and dreaming that its Ryan Gosling

  4. In my car at the beach.. dressed cute drinking a mocha

  5. By a open fire in my local pub. Wine and open flame are the only way to stay warm

  6. Ugg boots, and snuggle scarf, with a big cosy jacket!

  7. It's blankets and body warmth for us this
    winter, but oh how we'd love some Ugg Boots.

  8. Chicken soup, hot showers, knee high socks under my trousers and my hot water bottle.

  9. I like to lick the warm froth of my
    first morning cappuccino! The sensuous way it dissolves on my tongue can even
    colour Mondays!

  10. I like to stay warm by escaping to European summer, well I dream about staying warm that way.

  11. Taking the dog out for a brisk morning walk,gets the blood pumping and warms me up.

  12. Nothing beats coming home to the fire after a wintery walk splashing in the puddles with our dog and toddler. Gumboots essential!

  13. My fave and guarenteed winter warmer; comfy jeans, long boots, sweater, a big overcoat, a luxurious scarf and finally chasing my two year old outsid.

  14. I love sitting by the fire with my family, drinking chai and eating hot buttery toast.

  15. Hot tea and good book, and warm blanket!

  16. After our heater broke down this winter, I realised that a long, hot bath is my essential place for thawing out and warming up :-)

  17. We live in Bridgetown - affectionately know as 'Fridgetown' - I couldn't get by with our our potbelly fire.

  18. I always wear scarfs to keep me warm, or lying in bed and have a hot drink

  19. Now you know I love me some questions so I am totally going to have to do this again ;) xx


Leave me a love note why don't you.. it makes me feel oh so spesh ...
