Liebster Award

When you receive the award you should:
List 11 facts about yourself
Answer 11 questions asked by the nominator
Nominate 11 bloggers with fewer than 200 followers and ask 11 new questions for them to answer. *Side note - I am only tagging 6 bloggers since I am a new kid on the block and don't actually know 11 new blogs yet!

11 facts about me:

1.) My birthday is on the 29 April – the same day Will and Kate got married last year (I knew I would have a royal connection somewhere!)
2.) I am a vegetarian – only because I love animals too much to eat them.
3.) And a hopeless romantic
4.) I have an online shopping addiction – it’s bad!
5.) I will be 25 this year… 20 freaking 5. Yoh. Should I feel grown up yet? Because I don’t!
6.) I have a phobia of worms and slugs.
7.) And I cannot bite cotton off with my teeth – it makes me feel so weird. I am so weird. I know.
8.) I am the youngest in my family and the first one to finish uni.
9.) I could never date a guy with ugly hands – and I don’t even think I am a hands or feet person but for some reason a guy has to have nice hands, a nice smile and nice eyes.
10.) If my room is a mess you know my life is too.
11.) I am somewhat-newly-about-to-be-single.  My love life is pretty messy and non-existent. Girls choose men wisely! Tattoos and piercings are not a substitute for personality. A little word of advice – if it starts badly, it will only end badly.

11 questions from Angelina at Gorgeous Hearts:

1.) Do speak more than one language? If so, which ones?
I would like to say yes. However I studied Afrikaans, Zulu, Spanish and Latin at school and can hardly string a coherent sentence together in any of those languages…so nope!

2.) Have you ever travelled outside of your home country? If so, where to?
Home was South Africa and now I live in London. When I was little we travelled to Zimbabwe every year for our family holiday. I have lived in Tahoe, California briefly for a ski season and travelled from Paris to Rome last year,

3.) Do you prefer cooking a homemade meal or eating out?
I hate cooking. But I do prefer healthy food. If it’s McDonalds or a home cooked meal I would opt for the latter but if it was a nice restaurant I would much rather choose that over my cooking attempts.

4.) What are your hobbies?
Does Pinterest count? I love trying out new coffee shops (only to order chai lattes), photography, blogging, shopping, drawing, reading, hanging out with friends (I have such amazing friends!), walking – I love walking around London, it’s so inspiring, tanning – this can be a hobby right? Surfing when I am back home (gosh I miss the ocean).

5.) What was your favourite past-time as a child? 
Playing dolls.

6.) How do you spend Sunday afternoons?
Sundays are dedicated to church. It sounds nerdy but on Sundays you can find me at Hillsong, London.  Pop by if you are ever around, it’s not just a bunch of old people I swear ;)

7.) What is your favourite perfume?
Gucci guilty and Miss Dior. Wish I liked Chanel, I always wanted to but just don’t.

8.) What is one of your goals for 2013?
To be kind. I think the world needs more kindness. “As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others”. Audrey Hepburn

9.) Flats or high heels?
Flats when I am late and running to the office. Heels once I am at my desk. Ankle heel boots for the weekend.

10.) Who is your favourite artist?
I don’t have a favourite artist but I have a few fave songs like: Swedish House Mafia – Don’t Worry Child, Tegan and Sara – Closer and …. oooh wait, I do love Florence and the Machine!

11.) If you could be anybody else for a day, who would it be?
A boy. So I could finally figure out what the heck they are thinking!
