Imma versatile blogger!

Guess whattttttttt, I won a "versatile blogger" award from the super duper wonderful Monster Girl! Awwww thanks a gazillion! This lovely girl from QLD is so funny and cute and writes hilarious and wise things and I wish we lived in the same state because then we could eat Grill'd vegan burgers and go roller skating together and watch Star Wars together and quote Daria sometimes too maybe. If she didn't give me the award I would be giving her one but alas I cannot! Plus then the also very very awesome Gemma from moth meets flame gave me one too, awwww shucks!

4 Rules go along with this award:

Rule 1: Thank the person who gave you this award.


Rule 2: Share 7 things about yourself.

1. I don't own a single Apple product.. no Ipod or Iphone at all! & yet I manage to listen to music on the train with my (now extinct) Creative Zen, I know sounds lame but it works like a treat even after 3+ years! Plus, I know Iphone are full of all sorts o handy things but really, I just think it takes you away from reality and I like reality.. as opposed to a phone screen.. make sense? Not really.

2. I don't understand why people don't walk on escalators, I am pretty sure they were invented so you could move faster not so you could stop moving for a minute. I am not normally in a rush or all that impatient I swear, I just like to move!

3. I have been to Germany 4 times over the past 6 years mainly because I love everything about it but also because my step-grandma lives there and I would love to live there one day.

4. My surname is French (but my family is actually Dutch) and no one can EVER pronounce it correctly and I can not wait to get married and change it. Or I could just move to Europe where they embrace and appreciate the accent.

5. I don't have my drivers licence. I have a WA learners permit that I really should get transferred over to a VIC one but really, I just hate driving and I am quite frankly, terrified. I have driven before, had numerous lessons and also.. crashed. Plane tickets are where I prefer to put my money towards rather than automobiles and petrol but yes, one day I will!

6. I have had a super mega case of wanderlust for the past 5 years but now, the only place I wish to visit is really New Zealand (fingers crossed for next year to live there foreverrrrrr in the mountains maybe!) and Tasmania (in October for hiking adventures with my Kiwi bestie) other than that, I'm good! But ask me in 5 minutes and i will probably change my mind and tell you I'm going to Kenya or something

7. I kissed the Blarney Stone in Ireland and that is meant to make you eloquent.. I think it made me way less eloquent so now I just mumble a whole heap and rant about some ridiculous things or sometimes i just don't talk at all.. that isn't very eloquent now is it! Such is life.

Rule 3: Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic.

♥ Courtney from Kid vs City! Such a sweet girl from Chicago and I love hearing of her adventures and we are now real life penpals!
♥ Jess from the beat my heart skips! I love NZ bloggers and this lovely girl has just started a 365 photo challenge (with Tillie!) which I think is tops, posts about pretty mail and veggie foods!
♥ Chelsey from Always Learning! This girl is so funny and I love reading about what she gets up to in America! She is also a paper journaller and a Hanson fan too!
♥ Megan from Time After Tea! This girl is all sorts of awesome and posts about pretty mail too and if I ever go to Canberra I want to have afternoon tea with her!

I cannot name 15 blogs.. I don't read all that many blogs hey and the other people I would give the award to have either already gotten it or are bigger than tina so it's just these top 4 bloggers from me! Sowee.

Rule 4: Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.



  1. Go team No Drivers License! Hehe.

  2. Huge congratulations to you!!! That is wonderful and so sweet!!!! I'm a non-Apple person, too. Not because I wouldn't like them necessarily, but, like you, I just don't really need all that stuff.

  3. Aww thank-you so much for passing it along to me. It is so nice when someone likes what I write, you are such a sweetie!

  4. I loved your answers! :) And ooh, yes, wanderlust. It's insatiable!

  5. come hang out in nz! and i'm with you on the no apple products! my mum has an iphone, ipod and ipad, i had a creative for 3 years, now i have a zune, love it x

  6. #1 i do own an ipod, but i've had it for 6 years, and although it may not be the coolest model, it works for me. i wouldn't mind owning more apple products, but they're so darn expensive!

    #2 i don't understand walking on escalators either. a few months ago when i was at the o'hare airport in chicago, my aunt and i had plenty of time to catch our next flight, but she insisted on, not walking, but running on the moving walkway! she looked foolish, so i just walked fast even though i would have prefered to stand still!

    #3 i have never been to germany, but i keep saying that i'm going. my family is german, and i still have family there that i've never met, so it's on my to do list!

  7. Chrissybizzle- I have heard great things about the Zune but haven't ever seen them in Australia :( I would love to hang out with you! Hopefully one day!

  8. p.s. i agree with your numbers one and two. it's great that iphones have a bunch of useful crap on them, but i hate seeing people constantly texting or on facebook or whatev. i'd rather actually live my life.

    i too have what i've been told is a french surname and no one can ever pronounce it correctly the first time they read it.
