My First Blog Award!

Thanks very much to the lovely Emily of Sass, Sin and Fashion Design for my very first blog award!

The rules for this award state that you should share 7 facts about yourself, and then pass it on to 10 other stylish bloggers.

1. I have three aquariums, two guinea pigs and a dog - in a one-bedroomed flat!

2. I really dislike modern bands which try to sound 'vintage' - stuff like Imelda May etc. which everyone seems to love but I just think are a weak pastiche of the real thing.

3. I'm just about to launch my first proper website for my business -

4. I really wish I had spent more time with my grandparents before they died. I have none left, and really wish I knew more about their lives. Unfortunately you don't think about these things as a teenager, and don't realise until the moment has passed.

5. I have been vegan for over five years, and was vegetarian for about nine years before that.

6. After partially moving away from the punk scene when it became all about ketamine, crust music and boring warehouse parties, I often feel that I have very few close friends that I have much in common with, and would love to find some new girlfriends to go shopping with or out for drinks.

7. I have been dieting since January 1st and so far have lost 4.5kg, which is nearly 10 pounds.

Here are my ten nominations for the stylish blogger award! I don't expect all of these to play along, but all are worth a good read!


  1. I've just found your blog, read through a few posts and realised that you are Kathy's friend and work in Rockers!
    Hello from a fellow Mancunian blogger! :)

  2. You're welcome Cheri!

    Clare - Hello, yes I am! I don't work in Rockers at the moment, just while it was busy over Christmas, but Kathy and I are friends :) I did a stall there on Saturday selling Valentine's hats and fascinators.
