Blog Awards & Update

Hello everyone:)
I've been nominated for 2 blog awards recently, for the first time ever! Excitteed:)
I've been rushed off my feet with school work so sorry for the lack of posts, theres been a million things I've wanted to talk about. I hate how schools expect us to study with the mountain of homework and papers we have to meet deadlines for!
I've also been meaning to begin posting pictures of me more regularly with some makeup looks or outfits etc, here's one for now but I have been fairly unphotogenic this week:

Now that thats over:)
This is really overdue so I wanted to take a little time out now to acknowledge the awards.

The first one is the beautiful blogger award from Cheryl! Thankyou!

the rules:
1. thank the person who nominated me
2. copy the award and place it on my blog
3. link to the person who nominated me
4. tell 7 (oh my) things about
5. nominate 7 bloggers
6. post links to the 7 blogs i nominate

So here are the 7 (fairly random) things I could think of about myself:

1. I hardly ever see any of my extended family. Most of my friends have cousins who live in the same town and go to the same school as us, but the only cousins of mine which live in even the same country as me are all in their mid 20's now, and still live 40 miles away. My dads side of the family live in South Africa and Canada, (which has gave me the chance to visit some great places), but it upsets me a little how I hardly know them. I went to Canada last year for a family wedding and became really good friends with one of my cousins, then had to leave!

2. I have a cat. He was the most accident prone thing on earth at first, its unbelievable that we still have him today in such good health! But I'm happy we do as I absolutely adore him! He's had no problems for a long long time, but when we first got him he had to be put on a drip as he refused to drink water, he was knocked down & had to have a tail and leg amputated, and his hip bone removed, he had to have an operation on his belly button at one point because he was born with a defect to do with it (who knew cats had belly buttons!), and he was diagnosed with athsma. But he's all clear nowdays, infact hes curled up on my lap as I am writing this. <3

3. I am in a long distance relationship and have been for the past 2 and a half years. Everyones always so so shocked when they find out, it gets a little irritating haha. It's unbelievable that it worked out, I turned him down at first because I didn't believe myself that it could. But it's the best decision I've ever made. We both go and visit each other when we can, he surprised me once by turning up at the airport in Glasgow when I came home from Canada, and I know I may be young but I really do love him.

4. I have different obsessions all the time, one month it might be a band or a really talented songwriter, at the moment its the 16th century and anything to do with King Henry VIII and his court. I've just finished reading 'The Other Boleyn Girl' by Phillipa Gregory which was amazing, and I'm watching the Tudors series on dvd, haha.

5. I don't have a fricking clue what I want to do when I leave school, it tends to annoy people. I'm trying to keep my options open just now though.

6. I have a small group of friends who I absolutely love, we keep to ourselves most of the time. We were out at a party last Saturday and we noticed that we talk to everyone there for like 10 minutes, then go off ourselves somewhere like loners :L because we enjoy the company of each other more. There nothing like you'd expect them to be from first impressions, theyre genuinely insane. Below is the only recent picture I could find of us all together, im at the back left.
7. My one single goal in life was to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers perform live, but then John Frusciante left, and now that goal can never really be achieved. Unless he gets back with them.. hintt but until that time I'm still scrounging around on ticketmaster looking for upcoming shows!:) Those facts ended up longer than I had intended, sorry. Here are the 7 blog I nominate, I'm sorry if you already have this award, but I really do love these blogs:
