Shake that booty and all by myself

Wow I feel really grateful to have been given two new blogging awards – you guys are too good to me 🙂

First up is ….

Passed over by Sophia at Thanks you so much Sophia – I love this girl and her blog and one day I’m jumping on a plane to Chicago to visit her. Get her blog on your lost, you won’t regret it 🙂

Here are the rules of acceptance ….

1. Post this award with the picture and name whoever tagged you in it

2. Do the STUFF

3. Award to 7 others and tell them you did so!

1. Done above.

2. Here we go …

  • Name 3 things that are lying right next to you…. Well, I am at work (naughty) so I have a mango, pineapple and passion fruit smoothie from M & S cracked open; my iPhone is sitting pretty in front of me and I sit by the window so the lovely sunshine is pouring in – downside is the bushes outside are kick starting my hayfever!
  • Name 2 foods you cannot live without… chocolate – I try and try not to eat it but when I’m feeling down, it’s a good pick me up and tastes sooo good. My favourites are Galaxy, Cadbury Twirl and Caramel and I’m partial to Easter eggs 🙂 I also don’t think I could live without roast dinners. Sunday’s in the winter cry out for my mum’s roast – meat, potatoes, yorkshire pudding, veg and lots of lovely gravy. Amazing comfort food.
  • Name 1 thing you did today…. As it’s the start of my day, I’ll use one from yesterday. I sat outside at lunch time and soaked up the sunshine. There’s a heatwave here in the UK and it’s gorgeous. I hope it lasts over Easter when I’m off work. Tan here I come 🙂


I also picked up this award from Jules over at Jules is a fab blogger and I completely emphasise with her search for a man resembling Mr Big from Sex and the City. Although her love of Kylie I’m not so sure about 🙂

 This one calls for 10 facts about me. I recently did a Q and A post that I think more than covers this! You’re also supposed to pass on to 10 other bloggers.

I’m going to break the rules now, I love so many blogs and am so grateful for everyone that reads mine that anyone who looks at this page gets these awards! You’re all fab ….

All by myself …..

Okay onto another note – as a single lady there are some things I just don’t do – eating in a restaurant alone for one but also going on holiday alone. I’ve never done it but holidays are tricky – my friends all have partners to go with so I usually go with my mum. Without a partner it’s just not as easy. But I’ve been thinking maybe I should brave it one day and get to see places I want to see even if it means going alone.

So question of the day – have you ever been or would you go on holiday by yourself?

  1. Wow, two more awards, congrats Vix, you definitely deserve it! Yes, I would definitely go on a trip alone, and I have done it before, I will do it again! WHen you travel alone, you will find yourself more observant of your surroundings, making your experience more “intense”. Also, there are heaps of solo travellers around so its easy to make new friends while travelling alone, making your trip a tad more colourful 🙂

  2. I’ve never been away on my own, apart from going to Dublin twice… but only for day trips. I’d feel stupid staying in places tout seule overnight! 🙂


      1. hehe! Well, I’ve done eating alone in Maccy Ds in dublin but err, it’s not the same. There are some fab restaurants out in Dublin! 🙂

      2. Yeah I can cope with Maccy D’s but a sit down meal with several courses I’m not sure. I’d prob resort to flirting with the waiters 🙂

  3. Congrats on the Awards! Go Vix. While I haven’t really gone on a vacation alone (I can’t even remember the last time I had a vacation) I have done many trips on my own. Yes, sometimes it is a little lonely, but sometimes it can be an incredible experience. The only downside is that I am actually shy, so I may not do something that I would normally do if someone was with me. But I love being able to sleep in if I want, eat where I want, walk the speed I want. It took me a while to enjoy eating alone, but I even like that once in a while. I have been craving some alone time lately. In may I head to Seattle for a conference and I plan on wandering around the city, even if I have to do it alone, because I have never been there before.

  4. Congrats on the awards!

    It’s definitely more fun to vacation with friends/family. I went to Europe by myself, but met up with a group, so technically I wasn’t alone, LOL!

  5. ive just been through chicago! I would definately go alone, i just flew to san diego by myself but that was to see family. i dont think id eat alone though, feels a bit sad 🙂

  6. Congratulations! Well done, well deserved 🙂
    When I was in the USA I was travelling everywhere on my own. I even went to Hawaii (romance, romance, bla bla). And I really had great time! I see no reason why being single should stop you from doing things!

  7. Every time I see the move The Holiday it makes me want to come to England by myself so I can randomly meet a guy like Jude Law (of course that would be if I wasn’t married!). I’ve never been on vacation by myself, but travel alone for work a lot. Sometimes it’s nice, sometimes boring. I do have a single friend who goes on amazing vacations by herself every year to exotic places like Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, etc. She always meets new friends.

  8. Congrats on the awards, littlemisseverything, your blog is pretty cool. I would probably not want to go on a holiday without my family, but I can always take a holiday by myself by sitting back and listening to music while my mind wanders where it will.
