3 things about me!

I am a full on geek and love reading sci-fi and fantasy books. My recent favourites are the Assassin's Apprentice trilogy by Robin Hobb - so addictive! 

I enjoy playing MMO's from time to time, although I'm not playing one at the moment. My main character in WoW is a Warlock - so cool (heh). 

I'm currently in the middle of a fringe dilemma, I really don't know whether I should grow it out or not? Does anyone have any advice! 

2 things you might not know about me.

I use Photoshop a lot but I had to completely teach myself from scratch! 

Me and my friends made this strange and probably god awful journal/scrapbook in college called 'The Book of Dreams'. It featured some mental characters such as a coffee table with the face of Pete Doherty. 

1 think I would change about myself. 

I would change how stressed out I am all the time! 

Do you think it is important to have an education these days?

I think this depends entirely on the individual, but no I don't think it is the be all and end all. 

What is your favourite meal?

Haha, well this is a hard one because I have so many favourite meals. I love roast dinners, fajita's, and chill con carne. I also love every type of cake going. 

Would you prefer a cosy night in or a night on the town?

I would choose a night in! I love watching movies at home. 

Would you say that you're a chilled back person?

I am in no way a chilled out person! I wish I was though! 

Favourite product of the month? 

Superdrug's Coconut Oil - I really love this lately. 

Lovely blog's I would like to nominate!
Marta from Glitter Detector. I love all of Marta's cute tutorials and Youtube video's! 
Jess Buckley. Such an interesting range of blog posts! 
Amazing Jennie from Sailboat. Perfectly pretty photography and amazing video's. Such a sweet girl too! 
R for Rebecca. Such a lovely blog layout and really gorgeous photo's. I always enjoy reading this blog. 

Here are a couple of questions!

1. Favourite cult beauty product?
2. Do you have a favourite hobby which helps you to relax? 
3. What do you hope to achieve with your blog this year? 
4. Favourite takeaway meal?
5. Have you got any fun plans for Summer? 

Okay, well I think that's everything! Once again, thank you for nominating me Elle!
