Achievements, blogging, Personal


Happy Friday everyone! The sun is out here and the weekend is on its way yay!

Another reason to be cheerful is I have recieved a blogging award from the lovely Maggie over at . Thanks Maggie!

The rules of this award are as follows:

1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
2. Share seven random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 deserving blog buddies.
4. Contact those buddies to congratulate them.

Okay here’s my facts:

1. My mum is a hairdresser and has always done my hair. I have had every cut, colour and style possible – red, brown, black, blonde; short, bobbed, long etc. I’m naturally dark but am going grey! Take a look at some of them below …




The downside is I never know what suits me the best 🙂

2. I have an addiction to Guess. I don’t really buy labels as such but there’s something about them that sucks me in – I only have four bags, a purse and my glasses. Yes I have to wear glasses for distance, sigh 😦

3.  When I was a teenager, I always wore heels but after working in London for a while I switched to flats and now I live in them. I have a pretty large variety of ballet pumps and brogues.

4. I don’t do much exercise. I’ve never really been into sport and the only one I’m actually good at is ice skating, which is pretty limited. I joined a gym a couple of years ago but found it really hard to go due to work and gave it up. I brought an exercise DVD and only did it once oops 🙂

5. My star sign is Pisces and I tend to fit the personality profile for it – imaginative, sensitive, romantic, lover of luxury, a dreamer and indecisive. Famous Pisces include Elizabeth Taylor, Jon Bon Jovi, Rupert Murdoch, Michael Caine , Neville Chamberlain, Albert Einstein, Cindy Crawford and Drew Barrymore.

6. I drive a black Ford Fiesta – I brought it on the same day as my mum who also brought a black Fiesta. It looks like we won a prize or something 🙂

7. I cry easily at sad movies, even if they’re really cheesy, some of my fave weepies are: A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, Beaches and Charlie St Cloud. I also cry at family reunion shows and most death scenes on TV!

Instead of listing 15 blogs to pass the award on to, I shall point you over to my new blogroll on the right hand side where I list my fave blogs. Please head over and check them out!

I hope you enjoyed finding out some more random facts about me 🙂

  1. hey!! thank you for mentioning my blog on your blog roll!!!! and by the way i love the first haircut on you! the shorter fluffy version!!!
    and i cry too when watching movies, any movie! such a girl!!!:) have a nice weekend…

  2. Vix:
    Are those pictures all you? They are pretty. Your award is wonderful and happiness for you.
    I laughed at wearing heels. In Asia you wear heels to throw out the garbage or a quick run to the store…lol

    I cry so much at movies….sad or happy. That is the way I am.


  3. Many congrats! I always fantasised about my mum being a hairdresser so she could ‘do’ my hair all the time!! lol! You’ve a great face and I like your hair best in the first photo – is that your current look?

    1. Thanks! Aw bless you 🙂 Actually I’m currently growing out a really short cut – so it’s layered just above chin and is light reddish brown (see my profile pic). That pic was 3/4 years ago!

  4. I love the first two looks on your hair journey. I so desperately need a good cut right now. I love to sob and movies and books, nothing like a good cry and something outside of yourself.

  5. Hey, thanks for the shout out!

    Congrats for the award–it’s so fun to learn stuff about people. I think you look great in every hair color. My fav is the dark brown with bangs look. 😉

  6. Ahhh! I am so honored to be part of your blog roll! Thanks so much! I’m kind of jealous that your mom is a hairdresser. You can basically reinvent yourself anytime you want with the assistance of a pro! I’m feeling a drastic need for a make over…perhaps I will do something post summer (my hair ends up being in a pony, clip, or hat most of the summer. It is just too darn hot!!)

  7. Congrats on the award! I like your short hair best. I change my hair a lot too, I wish I had someone to do all that color for me. I can’t afford to let my hairdresser do it, as much as I love her.

    I also cry, which is why I mostly avoid sad movies. I like to be amused, I like to escape. Hmm, funny. I don’t write amusing, escapist fiction. Oh well.

    Enjoy your sun!

  8. Congratulations on your award!

    I too like the top picture the highlights frame your lovely eyes and smile 🙂

    How lucky you are though.. I have a choice of 2 styles.. short and curly or long and curly, eitherway I normally end up looking like Brian May!

    Oh and I cry at just about anything ( sad I know )

  9. I don’t think blond is your best moment 🙂 But I love the other styles. You are very pretty.

    As for excercise DVDs… don’t we all buy them and put them away… I have few I didn’t even watch once. Watch, not to mention excercise.

  10. The reason that you do NOT know what look suits you best is because . . . they ALL suit you.

    You look gorgeous in every one of those pics!

    If I had to pick my favorite pics . . . #1 and #4

  11. It’s awesome that your mom is a hair stylist. I wish my mom were, especially today. My hair is a wreck! Love the shorter style in the first picture. It’s a very cute cut on you.

    Congrats on your award and Happy Weekend!

  12. Congrats Sweetie!!!! And thanks for adding me to your blogroll :D.

    If we’re sort of voting, I like the first cut the most too, you have a pretty face and it shows it off. I think also I like the color, it’s light but still warm. Although the dark color (the fourth one I think) makes you look dark, mysterious and sexy. Would you ever grow your hair really long? I think you would look pretty with it super long too.

    1. No probs chick! You’re so cute 🙂 I had it really young at school, I could sit on it but photo 2 is longest as adult. I am thinking of growing it out again tho!

      1. I think around halfway down your back would be that sexy look, you know, kind of like Jennifer Aniston. A little layered but with a side swept fringe, and a bit of framing around your face. Oh you would look sooo gorgeous. I think sort of a dirty blonde too would be such a good color on you (like blonde highlights and then a deeper warmer blonde almost brown), especially for summer. But if your hair is still growing out that could be for next summer’s look. It’s sort of that beach classic look that never goes out of style.

  13. Another award, yayy to you!!! You have a beautiful smile Vix 🙂 I like you in the bob. But I think you looked best in the fifth picture. Sexayyyy 😉 I cry watching cheesy movies too. And recently I discovered I cry at weddings as well lol. Thanks for putting me up on your blogroll Vix, I feel very honoured! Have a great long weekend Vix! *hugsss*

  14. Awww, thank you for including me on your blogroll!
    You are gorgeous! It’s so fun to see you… in all your shades! I think I’m partial to red. What color are you sporting now? What fun!
    Now I’m off to visit others on your blogroll. Have a great weekend!

  15. Girl you are beautiful! Wish I could pull off so many different styles like you have!!! I love ’em all.

    I’m such a sap when it comes to movies too… AND you listed 3 of my favorites! Beaches, Walk to Remember and The Notebook! You’ve got great taste! 🙂

    Congrats on the award chica… you’re blog is always an enjoyable read! Sorry I’ve not been visiting more often. THANK YOU for including me on your blogroll Vicky. You’re a doll!

  16. My bffs mom is a hairdresser so like you, she gets her hair did for free which in turn makes me jealous! I like the last two pics the best, dark hair suits you.
