The Creative Blogger Award

The little lovely that is Miss Charlene Spillane has been a doll and tagged me her The Creative Blogger Award post. Thanks!

In her post she complained about her blog lacking the love, this makes me sad as I LOVE reading her blog! She write on so many diverse topics. There is something for everyone on her blog. GO AND LOOK AT IT! Follow her on twitter too! We have some right banter (I hate that word!). Charlene was quite possibly the first person to ever see my blog and take an interest in it, for that I am entirely wholeheartedly grateful! So if the fact that she writes about EVERYTHING and is a sweet as sugar isn’t enough of a reason to go and have a nose at her stuff then what else do you want from a girl?!

This is only the second one of these I’ve been tagged in, the other one being The Sisterhood of The World Award, funnily enough nominated by the same little lovely!

There are rules. I love a good structured blog post don’t you?!

  • Thank and post the link of the blogger that nominated you
  • Share five facts about yourselfimg_5694
  • Nominate your fave blogs
  • Pass these rules on

That doesn’t sound to hard now does it!

Five FUN Facts about ME!

1. I know EVERY single word to Marry Poppins, the film and the production.

When I was growing up it was my go to film, that and Pocahantas of course. I could reenact the entire story on my own. Every part. I recon I could get away with doing the harmonies myself too. Its my happy film. Its that go to childhood memory that I’m never going to loose. I even saw it in New York for goodness sake. That is commitment to the cause. Bonus fun facts: Favourite quote: “Close your mouth, please, Michael. We are not a codfish.” Favourite song: Stay Awake.

Stay awake, don’t rest your head. Don’t lie down upon your bed. While the moon drifts in the skies… Stay awake, don’t close your eyes. Though the world is fast asleep, though your pillow’s soft and deep, you’re not sleepy as you seem; stay awake, don’t nod and dream… Stay awake… don’t nod… and… dream.

2. I ALWAYS have a highlighter and a pen with me.

Its my inner organisational freak. I always have my filofax and some post it notes too but lets not go there. I hate to get somewhere and need a pen and be stuck. I also think that everything should have a fluorescent background. Not only is is easier to read when highlighted it’s always good to draw ones attention to the important parts.

3. I am such a GEEK!

Well if that wasn’t already obvious. Are you after further proof? Favourite movie: X-Men. Secret Addiction: The Avengers. Yes I like musicals and rom-coms but give me a bit of Wolverine and a Globemaster any day!

4. I get REALLY sad on the last day of holidays.

Like really sad. Everyone gets holiday blues but on that last day of any trip you will find me in my favourite spot (it varies from place to place obviously) and it won’t be the place that i’ll tell anyone else either. Only I will know my favourite spot. I will look around and try and take everything in, find every last detail that I may have missed and think for just a few moment what the consequences would be if I just stayed there. I’ve been this way forever my mom had this saying when I was a child that I try and remember in these moments “If you don’t leave you can’t come back.” Its true but I can’t help that horrible feeling that gets me every single time!

5. When I’m nervous I chat RUBBISH!

I’m not the shy type well not stereotypically shy anyway. I am clearly no wallflower but when I  get shy or uncomfortable I seem to get this verbal vomit that just takes over me and I get all carried away. I don’t like those awkward silences!

So there we have it. My Five Fun Facts. A little bit different don’t ya think!

Lets check in with those rules again:

  • Thank and post the link of the blogger that nominated you – check!
  • Share five facts about yourself – check!
  • Nominate your fave blogs
  • Pass these rules on

The blogs I am going to nominate for this are as follows. I LOVE reading their posts and they are not just all Dutch related either!

Check out Maria at Cat Eyes, Red Lips – There’s clearly something in the name 😉 I am such a sucker when it comes to lotions and potions and her reviews are so honest! Plus she had the most amazing new hair! Definitely head over there even if just to see that!

I follow the escapades of Liselot over at Liselotjtv. She posts in Dutch so its great practice for me to read her posts and see just how much I understand. I rarely have to look words up too which is always a bonus! Thank you Liselot for helping me without even knowing it.

Alison aka A Flamingo in Utrecht posts some incredible photos and I just love seeing her name pop up in my reader. The idea of an actual flamingo in Utrecht put a right smile on my face!

There we have it then. A huge thank you to Charlene for the tag. I’ve given you five silly facts about me and three lovely ladies for you all to check out too!

Happy Saturday Night Everyone! Mine has been spent writing this and catching up on The Musketeers! *secretly swooning over Aramis*

  1. Maria your words nearly made me tear up! I am at a very high emotional state right now after watching Cinderella! Oh so magical ❤
    I loved your facts. Mary Poppins is one of my all time FAVOURITE films. I love 'Let's go fly a kite'. One day we can reenact it together and our harmonies will be pitch perfect!!! Xx


    1. Don’t be silly they are all true!! Cinderella how fab! I can’t wait to see it. Harrods windows where all Cinderella inspired they where gorgeous!
