  1. Thank you ladies :) Will post on my blog shortly - hope your week has been great x

  2. Hello, I was so excited to read this! Yay. Thank you for sharing your facts/ answers, they are very interesting! The funny thing is, I think my answers would be totally obvious, but as yours are so different, it is funny to think, perhaps we are only predictable to ourselves? I am so glad that you posted, it took me a while to come up with my answers so I appreciate the time you put in! Haha I have so many shoes and no where to put them! So that question was a real shout out! I like this drawer idea! Thanks. :)
    I better check out some of these bloggers you nominated.
    xx Jenelle
