in the heat of summer sunshine (another song now stuck in my head)

There is currently none right now (there's been nothing but rain here for two weeks. If you stop hearing from me, assume I've drowned) so I must thank the lovely Jordan over at Boho Vanity for giving me the Sunshine Award! This really brightened my day. If you've never seen it, you need to go check out her blog, she has amazing style and crazy good beauty tips!

Now, for 10 random facts about me:

1. I'm vegetarian, have been for 4 years, and despite getting made fun of on a daily basis have no plans to change.
2. I LOVE travelling. I've been to Spain and Greece (as well as random places in North America) and am going to France next year!
3. My dream job? Working as an editor in a high-profile publishing house.
4. I am ADDICTED to protein bars. I love them even more than coffee! (They taste like chocolate, but they're healthy-ish! What's not to love?)
5. My favourite author is Georgette Heyer. If you haven't read any of her books, go get one NOW.
6. I love dancing, despite being the least coordinated person on the planet.
7. I've never watched Titanic or Grease. (Shocking, right? My friends nearly fainted when I told them.)
8. I couldn't live without writing. (As you've probably noticed by the frequency of my posts.) I've written one novel and am currently working on a second.
9. I love high-waisted clothing. Skirts, shorts, jeans... super flattering!
10.  My favourite designer is Desigual. If ever I get rich, I will buy every single one of their pieces, even the guys'. (And then I'll make my boyfriend wear them. Since the rich thing and the boyfriend thing are about equally implausible, haha!)

And that's it for me. I nominate...

Scarlett at Teen Granny
Mariana at And so it goes...
Geena at Within My Eyes

(Another random fact: I'd never made links before!) I hope that this brightens your day! Let me know if you do it, I'd love to hear random facts about you.


  1. Thanks, Zia :3 Congratulations, you completely deserved it!

  2. No problem, and thank you too :D

  3. Congratulations! I hope you get many more. I went to France when I was very little so I would like to go again.

  4. Aw, thanks so much for nominating me :) And right back to you!!
    Love your ten facts too- I'm also a vegetarian (had my first year anniversary this January though) and I know what you mean about people giving you smack about it... *Sigh*
    I'll have to check out Georgette Heyer- what book would you recommend the most?
    If you love writing so much, don't ever stop ;) It's fun to read your posts!

  5. Demi- thank you :) I hope you get to go at some point!

    Mariana- no problem :) I know! I don't understand why people think it's such a big deal.
    My personal favourite is Cotillion- I laugh out loud every time I read it. (This causes problems in public places) I also love Friday's Child. (However, whatever you read, don't go with her historical ones... they're more like textbooks than novels, imo. Which is fine for research, but not exactly fun)
    Oh, I definitely don't plan on it ;) Thank you!


Thank you for your comments! They make my day brighter, and I promise to answer every single one :)
