One lovely blog Award

Hello again my lovelies,

I know what you are all thinking… Tyler, why are you blogging? You are supposed to be on a blogging break!

I know, I know! But I do miss it! And I feel like if I don’t do something remotely creative I might pop!

So in October my cousin nominated me for the “One Lovely Blog” Award. Its been a while since then but I decided that I should probably get it done. Simone I am sorry its taken me so long, I really needed the break. But better late than never right?

Ok so Simone has a lovely blog called “Our Flavourful Life” that showcases all the awesome things her & her husband get up to (including delicious South African recipes they make). It has some serious YUM-Factor! Simone came to me before she started her blog to ask about starting a blog. I was most excited! I love when people are interested in Blogging, its such a release. I am so happy she is doing so well. Thank you for the nomination, it really means so much.


The rules for the nomination are as follows. You must:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Add the “One Lovely Blog Award” logo onto your post/blog.
  3. Share seven facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 bloggers you admire/read and inform them bu commenting on their blog.


7 facts about myself:

  • I recently became really, really addicted to watching YouTube stars: Zoella, Tanya Burr & Sprinkle Of Glitter. They have been added to the list along with good old Favorites like Jenna Marbles, Jess Bunty, Suzelle DIY & Not Another Poppie. They have all made me seriously consider YouTubing but I have no clue what I would do.
  • I am such a messy person, not sure how my Boyfriend lives with me? I keep everything organised but clothes… They are literally always on the floor or bunched up and shoved into my closet. I did a clean up the other day… It lasted that 1 day.
  • I am really good at cooking Pasta dishes (I friggen LOVE pasta), I made a goats cheese Mac n’ Cheese the other day… Lets just say I got a request to cook it again.
  • I am a total homebody, I could stay home every weekend and be the happiest person in the world. I am also seriously content with my own company. But to avoid being anti-social and becoming a total recluse I venture out into the world with my boyfriend or my best friend. I am not a massive party animal either but I do enjoy a good cocktail 😉
  • I am a huge softie! Can shed a tear at the slightest heart string tug. I can even have all the feels for a well written facebook post. #imaweirdo. But seriously, I cry when I see the homeless woman and children on the streets (not the drugged up kind, the ones that come here from African Countries to find a better life only to be homeless and hungry) I get so sad when I see animals that have been hit by cars… I would rather crash my car than kill an animal.
  • I have a very strong obsession with mustaches, not the real ones on peoples faces… That would be odd! I am obsessed with the image of mustaches. I bought a pair of shoes because it had mustaches on it. I also own 2 different kinds of nail decals, mustache clips & jewellery.
  • I love making things on Photoshop. Like this little scrapbook thing I made below 🙂
