A few days ago I was contacted by the lovely Hannah Campbell who told me that she had nominated me for the Leibster Blog Award. I had absolutely no idea what it was but after checking out her blog I discovered it is a bit like the chain mail everyone used to do at school! All you need to do is state eleven random facts about yourself then answer eleven questions from the person who nominated you, and pass it on! It's a great way to get to know other bloggers and to be recognised as a small blog which is such a great feeling! I had a bit of a think about who I wanted to nominate and what my facts would be, and this is what i've come up with! Hope you enjoy :)
1- I went to Bath Spa University to study Media Communications when I was 18 but quit because it just wasn't for me, so decided to wait a few years and go to UWE to study Fashion Communication.
2- I'm a vegetarian and have been since I was 7 or 8.
3- I have 4 tattoos. An anchor on my foot, a crown on my wrist, a swallow on my ribs and 'here comes the sun' on the inside of my right arm.
4- I had Scoliosis which is curvature of the spine and needed 4 operations to correct it. I have 2 massive scars across my body and even had a brain leak as a complication from one operation!

9- I love Woody Allen films and Annie Hall is my favourite film of all time.
