Camille's Questions:

What do you love most about blogging?

Writing is the only way I can truly express myself

Smoking, I hate that I'm a smoker and I hope to give up soon
Biting my nails, I bite them when I am anxious or nervous

What kind of music do you listen to?
I love all types of music from heavy metal to classical
At the moment I'm listening to a lot of Lana Del Rey and Bat for Lashes
The type of music I listen to depends on my mood

What does your perfect day look like?
My perfect day starts off with a cup of tea and a cigarette
Then I'll blog before rounding up my dogs and going for an early morning walk
I listen to phone in shows on the radio as I walk

  5. Hey. I've just nominated you for a Liebster Blog Award too.
    I hope you're okay, take care.

  6. Ooooohhhhhhh I love it when people do these and give little tidbits about themselves :3

    Your colour prefernces are going in my 'favourite colours reference file' in the back of my inspiration book. It saves me from asking people over and over and over agan. (Chronic sleep deprivation=shit memory)

    I'm a nail biter too! I don't bite on days I work because of all the gross shit I get under them. (Chicken fat, cleaning products, ham fat, liquified luncheon meat, bits of stickers and lables, ink, hand sanitiser) but if I don't have nailpolish on when I'm not working they're ragged stumps from nerves within an hour. At least with polish on I just pick. Still gross, but yeah.

    I hope you have a good day today. Tons of love from the Land of the Long White Cloud <3

    1. I love it too Peri, I love finding out random pieces of information about people

      By the way the only reason I didn't nominate you is that I could only nominate people with under 200 followers

      Only 2 more days to go Peri, can you believe your nearly finished?

      Love you x

  7. I love Lana del ray, despite how much crap she got in the U.S. when she first got popular. I'm sorry I haven't been commenting that much, I've been busy and forgotten to read everyone's stuff. Hope you're doing well. You perfect day sounds so nice. Much love.

    1. She did get a lot of shit but I think she's great, I love her music, I'm listening to 'Ride' on repeat at the moment

      Love to you too x

  8. Hey Ruby, I have just nominated you for the Leibster Blog Award :)

    Alice xx

    1. Why thank you Alice, you are too lovely x

  9. Cool! Congratulations on your nomination Ruby, fair play to ya! And thank you for nominating me :)

    Ha, I'd love to be an unicorn too! Infact, I think certain people are like unicorns - special people who come along in your life and inspire you - of which I've met a few! Hope you do too!

    And Lana Del Ray is brilliant! I've just started a new blog where I post some of my favourite music, as music is such a big part of my life - www.musictoliveandfeelby.blogspot.com if you fancy a look!

    Hope you are still writing away! :)
