Sunshine Award!

I have been nominated to write my own Sunshine Award from a lovely bblogger! This is such a good idea as it really lets your readers get to know you a lot better! I copy & pasted the questions, but feel free to add questions or ask me any in the comments! I will answer them (within reason) 😀
If you want to do the Sunshine Award too, throw me a link to your blog post – I’d love to read your answers!

1. Are you a student? If so, what do you study?
I am a student! I am currently in my third year of university, studying BA Hons Graphic Communication – which is basically Graphic Design sounding all fancy!

2. Why did you start your blog? Is it just recently?
I have recently started my blog, mainly because I have a passion for talking about the things that I love. I also think that my flatmates are bored of hearing about me talking about things that they aren’t interested in too, haha! I had a blog previously, but I ended up deleting it mainly because I didn’t have enough time to submit routined posts! Another reason for me starting up a blog, is because I am rubbish at keeping a scheduled routine for things like blogs – so this will definitely push me to deliver!

I have now started a YouTube channel too, which so far are mainly vlogs, but will start to have beauty/book/nerdy related videos on there too! It is:

3. Have you ever dyed your hair? If so, what colour/shade?
I had only dyed my hair for the first time, about 4 years ago. I decided that I wanted to go an Auburn colour, but most of my blonde hair came through within a month and was back to normal! Other than that, I do have slightly lighter blonde dip dye sections to my hair, also!

4. Have you travelled anywhere?
I have a passion for travelling and visiting new places! I have visited a few places such as Denmark (as some of my family live there), France, Italy and America (Florida and New York). I will also be travelling to Tokyo with university in February 2014, which is so exciting!

5. Sent to an deserted island, 3 products to bring.. what are they?
If it’s Non-lifesaving products, then I’d probably take 1984 by George Orwell as it’s my favourite book and I could read it over and over. (I am already stuck on things, I keep thinking of stuff like iPad, although obviously that wouldn’t exactly work..)
I would probably take a sketchbook with me so I could illustrate and document certain things. The last thing I would take is either liquid eyeliner or a bobble bottle! (I know, I cheated..)

6. Have you got any siblings?
I have one sibling, a brother. He is 3 years older than me and is a successful tattoo artist that has been featured in several tattoo magazines! He recently did my new C-3PO tattoo, which I have posted a video on my YouTube channel about!

7. For this A/W 2013, do you have a favourite trend?
My definite ‘trend’ for A/W 2013 has to be wearing dark opaque tights, with long socks over the top and brown, knee length boots! I will wear these with a dress and parka, or my Barbour coat! Or high waisted denim shorts!

8. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Still blogging?
I certainly do hope that I will still be blogging in 5 years time! Within 5 years time, I am hoping to live somewhere in America temporally! I couldn’t think of anything more that I would want in life!

9. What camera do you use to take your blog photos?
For my blog, I usually take photos with my Canon 450D, but I now have a new compact camera with HD Video for my upcoming YouTube ventures and vlogs – which is the Samsung MV900F, that has a really handy flip screen!

10. Are you a Youtuber? If not, would you like to be?
I most certainly am, I am a newbie to the YouTube world! My channel is
I have recently posted vlogs, but will venture to small hauls and topic related videos soon.

11. What is your pet hate?
My pet hate is definitely people that don’t have manners! Especially when you will hold a door for somebody, and they don’t even have the decency to thank you. I’m not sure about others, but to me, a quick ‘thank you’ goes a long way and can make me feel a lot better instantly!

    Congrats on your Sunshine Award nomination! That’s so awesome! I love traveling too! There are so many places I would like to go. I’m visiting London, Paris, and Rome with my sister this summer and I can’t wait!
