if you’re one of the lovely bloggers that I nominated, here’s what you have to do:
  1. display the Award Certificate on your blog.
  2. announce your win with a post (like this one!). make sure you post a link back to whoever nominated you as a ‘thank you’ for the nomination.
  3. present the award to your own fifteen deserving bloggers.
  4. leave each of the nominees a comment to let them know you’ve nominated them after you have linked them to your post.
  5. post seven interesting things about yourself.
all good? cool stuff. so now, seven interesting things about myself:
  1. a bag of jellies/chocolates won't last a day with me.
  2. i like colors. immensely.
  3. i love heights.
  4. i try to make random strangers laugh, and i love laughing myself.
  5. my favorite thing to do ever is to sleep in on rainy mornings. and then wake up to hot, english breakfast + good book.
  6. i'm a foodie. i take this very seriously.
  7. i think i'm a pretty optimistic person (that means positive person, right?).
  8. whipped cream and latte forever.

lest you think i'm a rebel kid and can't follow simple instructions such as ONLY seven things about myself, the last one's not something about me. it's just like a footnote, that tells you where i stand in the important issue of starbucks and coffee.


  1. aww, thank you so much for nominating me. unfortunately I stopped doing awards because I felt I was using time that I'd rather spend on blogging other things. but thank you so much for nominating me. <3 and I so agree with you on #5. that's the description of a perfect day. (okay, and you can add coffee and chocolate to that too.) :D

  2. thanks for nominating me! i've actually already done this, and you can view the post here: http://www.rachelnicoleblog.com/2012/04/rules-1.html

    totally agree with #1!


  3. Thank you so much for nominating me, darling! It makes me smile to know that you like my blog and appreciate my random thoughts. <3
