One Lovely Blog

So I was nominated by the beautiful & talented Polly Bartlett for the 'One Lovely Blog' award which I have to say whacked a great big cheesy grin on my face on a somewhat unexciting & drizzly day. For that reason alone, I would like to say a gigantic gracias to you Polly as it has made my day & I'm honoured that you chose thepoachedsalmon as one of your nominations! 

For anyone who needs to take a cheeky five minutes to chill out & unwind from a hectic working morning, definitely go & peruse Polly's blog - it's a delightful little gem & her recent tutorial on rockin' a halloween skeleton face had me nearly falling off my chair....is it even possible for someone to look so beaut whilst working a half bloodied face?! Darn it.

Being a nosy & curious lil' one, I decided to get my fins tappin' on the keyboard & fish around for some more background on this award! This award is a chance for bloggers to reach out & praise one another on their efforts & basically is a fabulous way of getting a lil' nosy & seeing what everyone behind the screens & words are all about! The nominee answers the questions that the nominator has chucked at them & then proceeds to ask a few questions themselves to blogs that they feel are a delight to read! Simplez & a lovely way to make new & upcoming bloggers feel all warm & fuzzy inside!
It seems there's a few different styles of the award floating around including reeling off 7 different facts about yourself but Polly has asked me a few questions which I'll get straight into answering now....!

What are your three favourite songs at the moment?
Oh what a horrid thing it is to have to narrow this down to just three! I swear this is the question that everyone groans at when it's asked but I'll put on my big girl pants & give it a crack...

1.) Henry Crinkle - Stay

2.) Taylor Swift - Shake it off (...as much as it pains me to admit) 
3.) One republic - I lived

Favourite movie of all time?
I've decided I don't like these 'narrow down to favourite' style questions as it makes such an indecisive person like me break out in unnecessary sweats! 
Can I have two? It's a toss-up between Transformers & Wolverine! Both films I had to trot off to the cinema to go see with my brothers as none of my friends were the least bit interested. They totally don't know what they're missing!

Heels or flats?
Being 5ft 1" (& quite possibly slightly under), I should definitely be shouting out heels here. If you'd asked me 3 or 4 years ago I absolutely would of said heels hands down. Now? Flats. Yes, it is because I'm lazy & a pansy when dealing with the pain of a 5" heel. Maybe this is my opportunity to man up & embark on a heedy flirtation with the heel again. They do (almost) make your legs look like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's...

What are your opinions on feminism and why?

I'm not going to sugar-coat this or lie but I've never really dabbled in the debate on feminism despite it being a hugely important & much-discussed topic in the public eye. All I will say is that I do believe feminism is an incredibly important set of ideologies & views in defending the social, political & economic equal rights of woman & men & that its' expression is vital in enabling individuals to find their voice & live a life of measured truth. 

Your proudest moment?

I think my proudest moment to date happened a few weeks ago when my brother James finally got his named etched on the official scroll of Solicitors. I don't think I've seen anyone more determined & focused to make their work vision happen & whilst like anything there have been rocky moments, James hasn't once faltered in his path to succeed in law- even after slogging away for 6 years to get where he is. I take my top hat off to him & almost daily have to pick my jaw off the ground in awe of his passion for his work. My brothers are my utter inspiration & I only hope to succeed half as much as they both have. They're bloody troopers!

Phew! Those questions were actually a lil' tricky to answer as they each made me stop, think & rack my dusty brain a bit...let's just say, it hasn't been overly active in recent weeks & was starting to get a tad rusty. 

 I now nominate the insanely beautiful & talented Beth Norton. This gal always leaves me in giggles at her endless tweets about nut-butter & Booja-Booja ice-cream which I have to confirm is deeelish!

 My second nomination goes to the wondrous Stephanie Sherry. This beauty has an absolute heart of pure gold & is armed with a bucket of frank, honest & greatly inspiring advice that have kept my fins afloat many times!

I ask you two lovely girlies the following questions...

If you could change one thing in the World, what would it be & why?

Facial hair on a guy - yay or nay?

What is your happiest memory?

What are your top five favourite fashion trends?

Who inspires you the most & why?

If you could live anywhere in the World, where would it be?

 Hope you all have a lovely day!
