The Secret Seven and other loves
The lovely Shorty has bestowed this award on me - big thanks Shorty! If you haven't already, go and check out her blog. Now I must list seven things that I love, then pass this award on to seven bloggers that bring me tons of joy!
Aside from my obvious loves (my husband, our family, Meisha & Benji, photography, Jack Bauer and creme eggs) here is my more obscure list...
#1. I love my new elephant teapot. Mr B bought it for me in Lincoln at the weekend. It may be my favourite possession of all-time. My wedding ring just isn't quite cutting it any longer, ha!
#2. I love bare minerals makeup. You may remember that I bought the starter kit a few months ago. It's taken me a while to get the technique and the look I want down to a 't', but now that I have it's completely worth it. It feels so light but gives really even, natural looking coverage.
#3. I love these green tote bags by Maegan & the awareness she is creating through her blogs (oh, and I wouldn't mind having just 1% of her wardrobe either!)
#4. I love Enid Blyton's books... The Faraway Tree, The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, The Five Find-Outers I could go on and on. I devoured them when I was a child. I wanted more than anything to have adventures like the children in those books. The excitement, the exploits, the travels... it sounded incredibly thrilling.
#5. I love my husband's unique sense of humour. I walked upstairs to find him laughing so much I thought he would explode. He was looking at a photo on our computer. It was this...
I don't find it that funny. More scary. How has our cute cat managed such a terrifying photo? Another true ninja for you Rambler!
#6. I love the feeling of getting into bed when the sheets have been washed and starched. Mmmm, crisp and cool.
#7. I love getting my hairwashed at the hairdressers. Why is it so nice when someone else does it? I could have a kip right then and there. It's heavenly. I have finally got an appointment to get the locks chopped next week. It can't come round soon enough, believe me.
I am going to give this award to Summer, Courtney, April, Erica, Jill, The Rambler & Gwen. You ladies always brighten up my day!
