Claire Ann, over at www.claire-ann.com
has been nominated for the Liebster Award, and in turn has tagged us little bloggers to help us get to know eachother and share a bit about ourselves! She's set us a list of questions to answer! I thought I would give them a go! Thanks Claire :)
1: If you could have one job for the rest of your life what would it be?
It still is, and always has been, to have my very own fashion house and make it big as a designer! Maybe I'm on a bit of a hiatus as I'm working in Bridalwear at the moment, but it's still my dream to be a designer!
2: Favourite book you read this year?
I just finished the Divergent series by Veronica Roth! If you're into The Hunger Games, as I am, this is the next big thing! It's a trilogy and the third book was released last month!
3: What’s your biggest obsession of the moment?
4: Favourite season?
Autumn! It has my birthday and Halloween!
5: Heels or flats?
I'm more of a heels girl.
7: Cosy night in or mad night out?
In London, it does sort of take a night out to catch up with everyone! But you can't beat a cosy night in during Winter! I'm torn :/
8: Your one helpful tip to give a fellow bloggers?
Blog about what you like, even if you're not sure if anyone else will.
9: To date favourite moment of your life?
That's tough! But meeting my niece Willow for the first time sticks in my mind. I'm head over heels for her :)
10: What piece of advice would you give your teenage self if you could?
Don't cut your hair! I've been "growing it back" ever since.
Ah, what a month it has been for Delaneys near and far! I feel like I have a news round up for you all. Most of you who follow my facebook will know how jam packed the last few weeks have been! We've been visited and visitors. Good news, bad news and good news again. It's been a rollercoaster of a month! 2013 is proving to be the best yet. I don't want it to end!
So, major news first I guess. We had our first trip to Ikea! If that's not life altering, I don't know what is. RJ's parents came to visit. We toured the museums and showed them around Crystal Palace Park. My birthday was the next day and we went to see my aunt Margie in Henley, where she was visiting Mel before beginning her journey through chemotherapy as she was diagnosed with stomach cancer a few days before. She gave me my favourite birthday present to date, a beautiful crochet blanket. The next evening I gathered my nearest and dearest for an Indian dinner on Brick Lane (delish). My cousin Mel gave birth to her second daughter, Esmé Margaret, another little beauty, on October 24th. Her birthday coincides with my brother Cole's, who came to visit a few days later. We toured the sights (sites?) in London with him and said a fond "see you soon!" when my sister and her family landed in London a few short hours later! We had the best time, as sisters do and I got to hang out with my beautiful niece Willow.
It has been wonderful to catch up with family, all of whom I miss so much. Good news or bad, we have talked more, laughed more and loved more. I'm looking forward to Christmas in Ireland and seeing them all again.
You can follow my aunt's blog here for her updates on life and her beautiful crafts.
Meet my newest cousin Esmé Margaret Carolan, born on the 24th October 2013! She is so lovely <3
