My First Award!

I was tagged by the lovely Jesse from Liefde!
Yay my first ever award!

What to do:
1. Post who gave you this award
2. State 10 things you like
3. Give this award to 10 other bloggers and notify them with a comment :)



So here goes, 10 things that make me happy:

I might start off with something obvious...

1
Fashion

I love all of it. And it seems shallow and ridiculous but it makes me feel at ease when I'm browsing blogs/shopping online/looking at people wearing pretty things and trying not to stare at them too long so I dont look like a creep (eeek!). I instantly feel relaxed and I can forget all the troubles in my little world. I guess its like a kind of therapy. I know, not the best way to get therapy but I cant afford a shrink. Ha.

2
Those sunny, slightly windy, 25 degree days

We're blessed with them in spring and autumn and sometimes even in winter. They bring a smile to my face because theyre not too hot, not too cold. Everything just seems crisp and clear. Its amazing. Even better in spring when you can just smell summer on the way. Mmm.

which brings me to...

3
The beach. Or, more specifically, my beach

I live in a town about an hour north of Sydney that honestly is just so gorgeous and perfect and I could not have asked to have been brought up anywhere better (sorry, biased!).
It's managed to hold on to its village charm (still gets hectically over populated by tourists in summer) but during winter you can be the only one on the beach. Awesome.

This is a pic I took from the southern end of the beach on the rock platform. Every time I drive into where I live and see the beach I feel so lucky. I really love where I live and I hope one day I can raise my kids here.

Everyone, deserves music, sweet music

Ohhh music. Its the shiz. There is a song for every emotion ever felt. There are songs to lift you up when youre feeling down, or to just cry to when youre feeling down. And songs to listen to when youre feeling like life is effing dandy.

Hence why I have this tattoo! I think I've posted about this a while back. Anywho, I have music to thank for the fact that I came out of my teen years somewhat sane.
Yay music!
My fave song is 23 by Jimmy Eat World. It is just... wow.

6
My fave band...
Fightstar

Ive also posted about these dudes before. They rock. Really. Love love love! It also helps that the lead singer is a MAJOR babe. His voice is... ah! They are from the UK and play 'melodic post rock'. I have a dream to one day see them live and hopefully meet them afterwards. They love getting in touch with their fans and once I wrote a message to the lead singer on Absolutepunk.net and he WROTE BACK. I deadset hyperventilated. I have 3 cd's, 1 signed and 1 signed poster of theirs and I absolutely cherish them to bits as theyre all shipped from the UK.


That was recorded at Download festival in the Uk last year. Awesome acoustic version of one of their songs off their last album.
I could not have more love or respect for what they do.

Food

No, really. Yum. I could eat and eat and eat and eat and eat some more. I think about what I'm going to eat next a lot of the day.
The only foods I dont like are mushrooms, pineapple when its cooked and parmigiana. Haha.
I'm only not morbidly obese because I freak myself out and do lots of exercise. I'm sure when I hit 30 everything will start to catch up to me and I'll have to just calm down in the food department. But until then, OHM NOM NOM NOM. (Im well known amongst everyone on fb for constantly updating about what food Im eating and also like to put 'nom' on the end of everything, even if it makes no sense).

8
Snuggles

Need I say more?

9
Lists!

I really, really, really like making lists. They make me feel so organised and grown up. I am prone to forget to do things and lists help so much. We have a 'to do' list on the fridge that says at the top of each page "This is F*cking Urgent". Hahaha. Every time I see it I smile. If I have things listed, I know I can make it through the day. And the feeling of accomplishment when you complete a list... Ahhhhhhh!

10
I'm going to be super cliche or soppy or boring or whatever but this should have probably been number 1.
My boy, J.

Deadset. I have been through some shite in my past relationships. So to finally meet someone who just freaking GETS it, and gets ME is ah-ma-zing. Now I have him I dunno what I'd do without him.
He is, sappy as it is, my absolute everything.
(cue people vomiting a little in their mouths)
Soowweeee! Ha.

I'm going to tag:
The Talented Caitlin

Thats it because everyone I can think of has already been tagged (I think? Eek) forgive me, its 11:52pm. Blahhhh!!!
Nighty night!
