February Favourites | Tea and Treats

So before I begin sharing with all you lovely readers my favourites from this month, I just wanted to say something, a little proclamation if you wish, one you may agree with? That is... how quickly has

Either way, I have found myself getting rather nostalgic and happy towards all that I have achieved the past 12 months being 21.

Neon Pink, Super Powers and Being Clumsy. | Nominated for the Liebster Award!


 
So yesterday I got a little notification on my phone from the lovely Nicola who writes the blog The Beauty Monologue; she had nominated me for the Liebster Award! Thank you so much Nicola! Though this award might not mean very much to some of you, I personally think it is just a really nice way to welcome people into the blogging community, let them know you like and read their blog and to get to know other small bloggers. Plus, I love seeing the questions and answers we all ask and
