As some of you may know a couple of years ago I used to dabble in making YouTube videos! These were always quite amateur, usually Vlogs on my Uni life or Makeup and Fashion videos. I stopped making them a few years ago when I moved to London because my life got quite hectic and I didn’t have the right equipment or a laptop that could cope with video editing / uploading (or the money to upgrade)!
I’ve always felt quite bad directing people to my YouTube Channel and also to my existing subscribers, so yesterday I made a Blog Video! It sums up what I write about and can be used to direct any lovely YouTube people to my blog (which I’m glad to say is now more active).
Enjoy and share! I pulled this together using a really simple online program called Stupeflix which allowed me to pull in my Instagram pictures.

So last night I received an email from the lovely Beca off of Those Moments of Serendipity nominating me for the Liebster Blog award… Lobster blog award?! I was intrigued! After a little bit of reading and research I found out that the Liebster (duh) Blog award is to give recognition to up and coming bloggers with 200 followers or less. It’s a tool of encouragement, not an ‘official’ award but a way of finding, sharing and communicating with blogs & bloggers you may not have been familiar with before, (how sweet!) I must say I’ve had a great time today just exploring Blog Lovin’ finding blogs in the furthest corners. I’ve read about peoples lives, seen photos and read poems. If this is not what sharing is about than I don’t know what is. So without further ado I will jump in to the requirements of the Liebster Blog Nomination!
♥ R e q u i r e m e n t s ♥
1. Share eleven things about myself
2. Answer eleven questions provided by the nominator
3. Nominate eleven blogs (under 200 followers) that deserve the title
4. Think of eleven questions to ask these nominees
5. Thank the person that nominated me and link back to their blog
I absolutely l o v e the way this works on a question and tagging system, not only does it give me some content to ramble on about but it connects me with other bloggers >.< and there’s nothing like a bit of networking to help boost a blogs morale (go us!) so if you find yourself tagged by me (you’re welcome) then it’s because I’ve found something special in your writing and I hope we can stay connected.

Okay so here is another I ♥ Cute Things Post! I hope you enjoy. I’ve rounded up a selection of goodies from the cutesy brand David & Goliath. I absolutely adore their products and clothes. They are bright, fun, quirky and H A P P Y. I particularly like their T-shirts to wear in bed or lounging around the house and if your everyday style is not as bold or cartoon-y as this then try just grabbing a few accessories for a splash of fun amongst your everyday fashion choices. My most wanted on this list is the iPhone Case, the dinosaur T-shirts and the Hoodie (I’ve wanted this for yonks) CUTE ♥
Button Badges: £1
I I ♥ Nerds Hoodie: £29.99
iPhone Case: £10
Vans Heart Shoes: £40
Skull Leggings: £10
Sushi PJ Shorts: £15
Veggi USB Snap Bracelet: £15
Key Rings: £5
Panda Flat Cap: £25
Here’s a little sample of a few things currently on my Artbox wishlist! We’ve been trapped in this endless cycle of bitter, winter nastiness for the past 6 months (doesn’t it feel like forever!) so I think it’s about time we got some S U N S H I N E in our lives. The colour yellow is uplifting so it is inspiring this little cute mood-board.
I love buying things for my kitchen (or more often lusting over things for my kitchen) hence the cute mug and bowl (would make cereal and tea a bit more bearable at 7am!)
I couldn’t resist adding the panda T-shirt and adorable socks and the Mario toadstool rucksack, well that’s just a bit of fun (think beach bag!) Ahh I want spring to finally arrive.
