AAAANNNNDDDDD..... for my final award.....

This was sent to me by crimsonsoulfire

Now for the rules:

1. Thank the person that nominated you and link to their blog.
Thankyou to crimson and if you haven't been to her blog, then shame on you! Get over there now to crimsonsoulfire she is the first person I go to when I log on, definitely worth a look :)

2. Tell us how the idea of making a blog popped up and what makes you continue it?
I was painting my nails and started to get some pretty interesting looks going on so started to photograph them. I then uploaded them to my laptop not planning on doing anything with them only saving them for myself as my husband certainly wasn't interested in nails and nail art! lol! I then thought who could I show these to? Someone who would appreciate them? Then I remembered the world of nail bloggers... so glad I did, I have met some wonderful people on here :)

3. Describe a usual day in your life.
No 2 days in my life are the same... I have 2 young children and with it being summer, well, if you have kids, you'll know! But mostly, it'll consist of getting up, VERY early making food, food and more food! My kids seem to have hollow legs! lol! Then entertaining them til they get bored, making even more food and bed as soon as the clock strikes 8, so I can relax and get some blogging done! :)

4. The best collaboration with a blogger.
Tbh, I'm that much of a noob, I'm not even sure what this means! lol!

5. The worst collaboration with a blogger.
See above!

6. Describe what having a blog means to you.
To me, it means I have somewhere to post my many pictures of nails that I know other people will want to look at rather than showing my husband and saying 'look at these nails' and him kind of going, 'yeah, nice' without even looking. Bless him, he does try to be interested but I must drive him crazy, it would be like him showing me his new football boots and saying 'look look, aren't these great' lol!

7. Nominate other bloggers.
you know the drill now ladies :)

If you managed to get through this whole post then thank you so much, you really are a sweetie <3 forgive any spelling mistakes, I've taken ages to type this out and its very late where i am... must sleep...

For my followers who actually want to do this, you can choose to do all 3 or just choose one it's up to you. And, it's ok, you don't have to to this, I'll understand :D
