Blog Loving-Worldwide and on my doorstep!!

It was lovely to receive 2 blog awards recently, the Versatile Blogger award from the lovely Viviane at Hippiebohoreloaded and the Liebster blog award from Lakota at Faith Hope and Charity Shopping-thank you so much ladies, it is very much appreciated!!!




Rules of acceptance include revealing 7 things about myself, so here goes!!!

1. Although I am not a slave to fashion, I do like to indulge in current season catwalk trends and will thrift pieces to fulfill the trend.

2. My current two favourite programmes on British TV are Benidorm and The Only Way is Essex!!!

3. I don't have a beauty regime- I don't wear make up Monday to Friday and on weekends, I'll wear lip gloss by Clinique and blusher by Bourjois and a spritz of perfume.

4. Have been good and bad on the health front-have virtually given up drink, as I don't like how it interferes with my sleep but I have restarted smoking again-only about 4 a day, but I suppose 4 too many really ;-(

5. If you don't know already, I'm going to opening up my Etsy shop next month-I can't wait and I do hope you will all stop by for a browse and buy!!

6. I love window shopping in London-my favourites are Selfridges and Harrods, but one shop I haven't visited is Liberty's- a must do for the year I think!!

7. My favourite snack of the moment is black pudding, sliced on toast with a nice mug of tea!

I mentioned in my title I had blog loving on my doorstep-this morning whilst daydreaming and getting sucked into the mud at Dunton boot sale in Essex, I was stopped by a lady who asked 'Do you Blog?'

Well, how amazing that the lovely lady who is also from Essex actually knew me by name and also reads and enjoys my blog-she said she doesn't blog herself or leave comments but I was so pleased to meet someone from my neck of the woods who enjoys my blog!!

So rather than me passing on these awards to fellow bloggers, whose comments and views I deeply appreciated and enjoy, I'm dedicating these to the lady from this morning (I'm not revealing you on here, but when you read this, you'll know its you!!) and also the other readers who don't always leave comments or have blogs, but just love to read my blog anyway, so-

Thank you!! To everyone who stops by, have a fabulous week ahead too!!

I love black pudding too, fried on a full English breakfast... if you like that you should try white pudding. It's Irish (you might have to get it from a speciality Irish shop) but its spicier than black, it's gorgeous.

How lovely that the lady recognised you. You kind of assume that the only people who read your blog are those who comment, but it's true, there's a whole secret world of blog readers out there!

Have a great week. x

Sharon, that's soo cool that someone spotted you on the street - you're a celeb now! xxx (I haven't started smoking again - but I reckon 4 a day is not too bad t all!)

Lakota [Faith Hope and Charity Shopping] said...

Fame! How cool. Congrats on t'other award, you deserve them both x

Pearl Westwood said...

Oh that is such a lovely story, I am always really surprised when someone I haven't told about my blog, says they read it. xx

Winnie said...

Oh I don't think I could actually stomach black pudding. There is a similar chinese delicacy (except it's more jelly like) and I can't stomach that either. But ANYWAY, congrats on your awards. That's so cool that someone recognised you. Someone recognised me once but I didn't know how to react haha!

WendyB said...

Congratulations, Sharon! I think 4 are still in the realm of okay... As long as you enjoy them. And Liberty London is definitely a 2011 Must! xo

Christina @ Fashion's Most Wanted said...

Dear Sharon, you must go to Liberty, you'll love it. They're great for supporting new designers and they buy really interesting stuff. Plus the shop is beautiful.

Black pudding on toast? I can't touch black pudding - they took us to a farm at school and we saw it being made - put me off for life.

Looking forward to your Etsy shop. I shall definitely be visiting, love C xx

Kavery said...

Wow, great to meet a reader in real life. Congrats on the awards.

Looking Fab in your forties said...

MyStyle said...

Hi everybody-thanks for the lovely kind comments, much appreciated xx

Caroline said...

Wow, fancy being recognised - did you feel like a celeb?! x

Have to admit the only way is Essex is extremely addictive!
I had to stop drinking about 7 months ago the headaches had got awful, although I now find watching inebriated friends just as entertaining ;)
Love reading all the personal details in this post. Must be nosey, eh?!
