Beautiful Blogger Award


This is my first one of these, and i may not get it 100% right. I was so shocked to get a nomination but very happy :)

1. Say thank you.

As per the Rules, I am going to start by saying a massive thank you to Alexis over at Glitter Tips
Glitter Tips is one of my favourite blogs so everyone should check it out.

2. Tell us how the idea of making a blog popped up and what makes you continue it?

I have been thinking about starting a blog for a while, maybe have it as somewhere to put all my crazy somewhere safe. I did try it last year but wasnt really in the right place to keep it up.
This year, I have been doing my favourite things a lot more and have been able to dedicate time to them so when my other half suggested I try the blog again, i went for it.
I have also been testing a lot of samples lately and thought this might be a good place to get my views out there. 
I'm quite new, but at the moment, i keep going with it because i'm doing things i love and showing the whole interwebs that i have done it. A simple theory, that gives me a little happy.

3. Describe a usual day in your life.

Honestly, a day in the life of Chrissie is pretty mundane. Depending on what day it is, it could range from a work day to being at home, cleaning then being bored out of my face.
My work revolves around the techie side of things, IT and Communications. 
 I have a 6 year old son, so it's up early every day, much to the mine and hubby's dimay, we used to be night owls before having him and still arent great in the mornings. Stress is high with him at the moment, he's at that age. School runs will swap between the two of us depending on varied work loads. 
 I play video games on Xbox or PS3, mostly in the evening or when no one else is in the house. If I am not in the mood for this then i will more than likely be watching Netflix in the evening. i look at my favourite blogs daily, most of them are centred around nail art and beauty. 
I told you mundane.

4. The best collaboration with a blogger.

I haven't yet had the opportunity to collaborate with anyone, i'm still a relative unknown, but i would love to do so in the future.

5. Worst collaboration with a blogger.

See Above. 

6. Describe what having a blog means to you.

My crazy needs somewhere to go, and to elaborate on that, in past years i have suffered heavily with Depression and Social anxiety and been quite ill.
 I have worked really hard to get better and re-integrate myself socially. Having a blog means that my thoughts and opinions are out there, with people viewing these, it gives me somewhat of a boost in my confidence and it is giving me a chance to learn new things.
I am also hoping that it is a way to meet lovely people over the internet, and clearly i am on the right track. 

7. Nominate five other bloggers.

This is really difficult to do, there are so many blogs that i read and love. I don't know if this is typically allowed but i would like to start by doing a backwards nomination, so my first nomination is:

1. Alexis @ Glitter Tips

Don't shout at me if this isn't allowed. :D I'm new. 

2. Sarah @ Try My Hand

3. Sharon @ Behind Green Eyes

4. I don't know her name but Laqueerisa

5. Caitlin @ Rock That Chic

These are some of the blogs that i regularly read, yes most of them are nail blogs, but all these ladies have talent beyond what i could ever have.

I hope i did this right.
