Versatile Blogger Award

First of all, I'm so, so sorry I've neglected my blog! But I was away the other weekend, then we had a huge awards do at work so I was busy with all the prep and follow-up on that, and then last weekend I was just so tired all I wanted to do was lie on the couch and gorge on TV catch-up. But as I finally have a quiet few days (well before life starts gearing up again ahead of another big work project and then Christmas) I thought I'd get some posts ready so this wouldn't happen again!

Anyhoo, whilst I was on my mini-hiatus I found out that the lovely Katrina at History Never Repeats had nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award :) So thank you Katrina!

The rules of the Versatile Blogger Award are as follows:

- Display the Award Certificate on your blog

- Announce your win with a post and thank the blogger who nominated you.

- Present 15 deserving bloggers with the award.

- Link your nominees in the post and let them know of their nomination with a comment.

- Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

So, here are my nominees:

And these are my seven interesting things (though I'm not sure how interesting they are...):
  1. When I was little, I would read everything I could get my hands on (still do in fact!), to the extent my mum wouldn't let me open books first on Christmas or birthdays because I'd just read them and ignore everything else! Similarly when we went on holiday she had to hide the books I was taking with me or I'd read them before we left.
  2. My worst habit is picking mascara off my eyelashes. Sorry, I know that's really gross and probably a bit naughty...
  3. My early ambitions were to be a vet or a zookeeper (I blame Animal Hospital). Then I had to scrap those when I realised I wasn't very good at science. But oh well!
  4. When I was a student, my absolute favourite post-club 3 AM snack was a toastie (made in a Breville) with Nutella and crunchy peanut butter. Try it sometime, it sounds horrible but it tastes really nice!
  5. I love rose-scented things and am constantly on the hunt for that perfect rose smell, be it in a hand cream, a perfume, a body wash... I've come close a few times, but never managed to find one that's just right (yet).
  6. The country I would most like to visit is Canada, mainly as it's one of very few places I haven't been to!
  7. My favourite beauty product is red lipstick - either Rimmel Kate Moss 01 or MAC Ruby Woo.
Thanks again to Katrina for the nomination, this was a really fun post to do and a lovely surprise to get nominated! I still feel like a newbie blogger in a lot of ways so this was a lovely way of feeling a bit more like I belong in the blogging community, as well as proof of just how welcoming and friendly it is.

I'd love to read my nominees' posts if you complete the challenge so please tweet me at @Laura_C_Tweets or leave me a comment below!

Have you been nominated for any blogging awards? What do you think of them? And are there any you're particularly proud of getting? Let me know in the comments and have a great day!

ETA: Just got a tweet from Gaby at Another Girly Blog saying she's already done this one, so I'd also like to nominate A Pinch of Shaz for the award.
