Award 1: Blogger Appreciation Award

Hello again, what a miserable day! Last week we were all catching the sun and today all we're catching is rain or snow, a drop in temperatures was expected but come on, the weather could be a little nicer to us. I bet many have been sensible and took the bad weather as a chance to snuggle up with some good films but no, me and my friend ventured in to town with the aim of finding her a hair dressing apprenticeship. That failed, we opted for staying inside the lovely warm shops instead, I didn't buy anything as i'm off to the metro centre tomorrow for a good shopping trip with momma. I am now sitting with my big coat on trying to warm up, it's like winter has decided to give us another visit. Anyways, the lovely Becca from back for tea has awarded me the blogger appreciation award, my first award, woo! Thank you Becca! Back for tea is a great blog, deffo recommend checking it out. So the 'rules' for this award are as follows:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award with their blog link on your post.
2. Answer the following 4 questions. 
3. Award the Blogger Appreciation Award to as many others as you'd like.
4. Let the blogger know you've just awarded them.

The Questions:

1. How long have you been blogging? 
Since January this year, I was hesitant but i'm so pleased I went ahead and pressed the publish button on my first post! 

2. What are 1-2 reasons you started blogging?
I love reading through the blogs of others and have done for a very long time, getting my daily dose of all things girly and getting to know the faces behind the wonderful blogs, I could see how great it was to be part of the community and I wanted to join in, talking about something I enjoy. I also began blogging because I love writing and i'm not the most confident person but here I feel like I have my own little space to freely write about what ever I want too.

3. What types of blogs do you like to follow/read?
I definitely read mostly beauty blogs but I do love a blog that has a mixture of beauty, fashion, lifestyle and cooking. Of course blogs that focus on only one or two of those topics definitely take my interest too. 
Always on the look out for new blogs to follow, let me know of your favourites.

4. What is 1 thing you would like to improve on as a blogger on your blog?
Hmm, I am one to unfortunately always be comparing my blog to others and I am always thinking that my blog could be improved, either in terms of design, writing style or photo quality etc. I think something I do struggle with though is how to make my posts readable in terms of how much I write, lets face it, no one wants to be sat facing paragraphs of writing for them to read. So I guess I would like to improve on condensing my thoughts and opinions and not rambling on and on. I'm not much of a talker in person to be honest but on here I feel like I could talk for England haha.

I'm sorry if you girls have already been given this award, but...
