100th Post - Awards

Eee, this is my 100th post, so in honour of that. Have some awards...

I was given 2 pretty awards recently.
The first was from the ever so gorgeous, Stef
Please check out her amazing blog. I love it. She has so much amazing makeup and her blogposts are SO informative. She knows all there is to know about Mac, including the finishes and colour combos. She is also so bubbly and friendly.


How cute is that award?
There were no rules around this one. :)

The second award was given to me by the adorable Sarah (haha i still call you Lou though) & also the gorgeous Jennifer & lovely Kate


The rules around this one were to give 10 random facts about me,
Hmm..
Here goes:

1. Ever since I was about 10 i have LOVED Ant & Dec. For those of you who may not know who they are, they are presenters in the UK. I find their slapstick sense of humour hilarious & reckon theyre quite cute. haha I was going to keep this one a secret but i wanted some reasurrance from those of you who secretly love them too...anyone?... :)

2. I suffer from Panick Attacks, It's not a nice fact about me, but i really want them to be made more aware. I still believe nobody i know truley understands them. Even Jack doesnt, which isn't very reasurring. I've had them since i was around 14 years old. I don't know why i get them, or when i'll get them. But i constantly live in fear of them. They haven't been as bad lately, which is promising as im hoping to just grow out of them. :) If you have any further questions about panick attacks or are curious, try google or leave me a comment.

3. I'm the fussiest eater you will ever come across. I stick to the foods i know and love, and i'm very unadventurous when it comes to food. I really want to go travelling but i know i'd starve as i'd hate everything. I really wish i wasn't so fussy, but i am. Some foods i dont like...chinese, indian, garlic, onions, mushrooms, any form of meat from the bone, any type of fish, noodles, peppers, chilli, kidney beans, any form of quiche, sun dried tomatos (ABSOLUTE YUCK)...my gosh i could go on and on..

4. I get travel nausea. Cannot stand boats, or cars for long journeys. Planes are okay, as long as i can't feel any turbulance. I get queasy on a ferry across a tiny stretch of sea...Jack laughs at me as the boat hardly rocks at all. I'm probabaly just being a complete drama queen and imagining it. haha

5. I am secretly quite a nifty little singer. I don't mean that in a big headed way, im certainly no Beyonce Knowles or Whitney Houston. But, i do not let ANYONE hear me. The only time i will belt my little heart out is if im alone in my house. I think my dad overheard me in my room once and has never shuttup about it. He keeps urging me to sing in front of people or audition for something but i am WAY too shy. I really wish i wasnt, and i could just whip a tune out. aha

6. I'm really sentimental. I keep everything. Not junk, but tickets, photos, small souveniers & i stick it all into a diary i've had since i was 10. I dont write in it daily, but i write important things, or things on my mind, people that are peeing me off, people i love, things i've done, things i've remembered. I have 2 padlocks on this diary as it's SO private. I wouldn't let a soul read it these days. Obviously when i was younger it was just filled with people i fancied and events at school like being asked out for the first time & things boys had said to chat me up. It's so funny reading it back, and the petty arguments me and friends used to have. I'm so glad i've kept this diary, and im hoping i can keep it going for a long time, i still have about half the book left :)

7. I'm tiny. For those of you who havent ever met me...(and if you have i'm pretty sure your first words were "oh my gosh...you're tiny") then yes, i am small. I'm more "petite" as i'd say im in proportion. My dads fairly small and was a skinny bean pole when he was younger, my mum is tiny and my brother is tiny. We're like the borrowers. haha. Jack is also always holding up my feet and laughing at how small they are..and my longest finger is still smaller than his little finger.

8. I'm a chronic sleep talker. I also used to sleep walk when i was younger but i dont do that anymore thank god. I have mega long conversations to Jack on the phone, and will wake up thinking he never called me, when in fact i just talked to him when i've been sleeping. We've even had arguments before where i have sworn he's never called me, and have to resort to checking my call log, only to find he did in fact ring. Alot of people, My brother, Jack and my Dad included, like to take advantage of the fact i talk utter garbage in my sleep, by purposely asking me ridiculous questions, to get ridiculous answers back. :) Luckily we have no camera footage..yet.

9. I sometimes talk in a little girl voice. It's actually what got Jacks attention in sixth form. Don't ask why, but when me and my friends were being stupid, we'd put on little girl voices, and we'd often forget we were actually in public and that people could hear us. Jack overheard one of our silly conversations, sounding like 4 year old girls, and thought it was cute. haha. I wonder if he'd be with me if he wasnt eavesdropping ;)

10. Funnily enough, i couldnt think of fact number 10, i turned to Jack for some help. And he said that I come out with the worst one liners... I once said that Brazil was in Spain, during a conversation I implied that Tudors had telephones and during a conversation about seagulls asked if they laid eggs. :) I think im lacking slightly in the common sense department. If he can think of anything else, im sure he'll post in the comments below. haha. Those were just a few he remembered. :)

And i tag each and every one of my lovely followers to do this too if you feel like it :)
Thanks so much girlies for awarding me

  6. These two ironic ads were at the side of this update:

    Panic Stress And Anxiety
    You Can Stop Your Panic Attacks By Following These Simple Steps
    WWW.PanicAttackStressAndAnxiety.com

    Anti-Anxiety Remedy
    Proven natural remedy for immediate relief. Safe and non

    haha anyway. You sound very like me in regards to FOOD and in panic attacks. I totally feel your pain they are horrible. When I was suffering really badly it was hell on earth but as you know they come, they are scary and horrible - but then they go :) xxx

  9. We have something in common.. we're both petite (:! I'm just bang on 5'0, and like you I have tiny hands and fingers, awhh! But you know what, I've learnt to love it, we can wear outrageously high heels and wear super cute clothes don't you think (: Oh, and I don't know if this ever happens to you, but I'm 18, and people think I'm 14 haha! I used to think this was a bad thing, but my mum said that by the time I'm 30, people will still think I'm 23 or something, result (:!

  10. @Ling - Awee ILY toots! ♥ Yes yes, do some more random facts :) xxx

    @Jennifer - Haha, i reckon its because i just blogged about panick attacks. Its a shame im not allowed to click my own ads LOL. Its SO refreshing to talk to someone who actually has panick attacks. I truly dont think, unless you suffer them yourself, that anybody has any idea what they're like. :) xxx

  11. @Parisa - YES! omg, i got Id'd for an 18 in the cinema and had no id on me and they werent going to let me in. I'm nearly 20 lol. Everyone always thinks im younger than i am. Its the same with my brother too. He's always being Id'd for 15 films and he's nearly 18. haha xxx

  12. I used to get terrible travel sickness but I think I'm growing out of it. I just remember this horrible time when I was younger and I went to a farm with my friends and the roads were so windy and curvy that I got travel sick and threw up on myself and had to sit there in my vest and no one would sit in that seat ever again. It's just the worst because once you arrive somewhere you just feel ill for the rest of the day. *hugs*

  13. I totally understand the panic attacks and what an awful thing they are. I'm lucky enough not to suffer but my Dad has had really bad anxiety for years, my brother has had the same thing and it's just really common in our family! I know that anxiety isn't exactly the same to panic attacks but like, my Dad was going on a work trip to Germany and he couldn't go because he got such bad anxiety in the airport.

    He's totally different when he has it- really quiet, and it makes me so sad. Luckily he's generally okay now! He's on pills and has had cognitive therapy and been to classes which have been really helpful.

    Long comment! Lovely to find out more about you Zoe :)

  14. @Daisy if your dads panic attack was related to flying then tell him to take valium as i HAVE to take it to fly otherwise there is no way i would get on a plane!xxx

    ReplyDelete
  15. I can relate to the panic attacks. I don't have them often but I was told once you've had one you'll have more and I did and do.

    Thankfully I haven't had one in over a year (think it had something to do with finally getting rid of the crap in my life!) so yes! Am all good!

    Hope yours become less frequent too.x

  16. I am a sleep talker too!!! It is hilarious because I will say the most random things and the most hilarious, my boyfriend has started writing a list :-)

    ReplyDelete
  17. im petite too! i love it! when i was 15 i looked 12 and hated it but now that im 23 and i look 16 its great!! and thats where our similarities end..
    i have an AWFUL singing voice, i know it & everyone else knows it but that still doesnt stop me from singing anywhere, anytime! i just love to sing even though im not good at it, makes all my troubles melt away :)
    i LOVE trying new foods! sometimes its better not to tell me what it is, but if it look & smells nice ill probably give it a try..

    hope your day is lovely xo

  18. Great answers I can certainly sympathize about the travel sickness, it's the worst!! Get it really badly on boats and in cars...yuk :(

  21. ive just recently started suffering from panic attacks- my first one was a lil more than a year ago and it was super scary- i had gotten sick and was on some medication that made me short of breath- i hadnt read it so i was freaking out that i was dying..cuz i had woken up from my sleep not being able to breathe...the panic attack made it worse. im already pretty paranoid and think of bad things happening all the time and i get really anxious. my boyf keeps telling me to relax but its just not that simple.
    so i kinda relate

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh I completely sympathise with you about the panic attacks. I've been having them for about 5 years now. Full on, can't breathe, body shaking, crying panic attacks. Thankfully I've only ever had them in the privacy of my own house with my family as my witness. Majority of the time mine are just stress related and they have become less frequent as I have gotten older and learnt to cope with stressful situations.
    I hope yours become less frequent or easy to cope with as well =)

  26. I am such a picky eater to. My boyfriend always gives me trouble for it and trys to encourage me to be more adventurous but I just cant do it!

  27. Can I just say it was so nice reading your comments because im fifteen and have had panic attacks for three years now and i still have agraphobia and it gets me so down. I've read your blog for ages now and its so nice to actually know of someone vagually my age who experiences the same things. I had to leave school because they were so bad and i didnt leave my house for 6 months, and if i had to my parents would have to turn the car round and take me home cause i would just cry and scream with fear.

    It's really good that yours are getting better, mine are kindof. I havent had one for about 8 months now but I still have agraphobia and honestly no social life because no one wants to be freinds with the girl who cant go shopping or catch the bus.

    I hope your panic attacks get better :)

  28. all those foods, aside from mushrooms peppers and kidney beans, i hate too! i can't stand meat on the bone it's actually disgusting :| urghhh. also fish is foul, though i don't mind fish fingers. but they don't even taste/have the texture of fish. yuk.
    have you ever tried travel sickness tablets? i hate boats because i've got a phobia of throwing up so stems from that and with those tablets it's all alot better, don't get any nausea or vertigo after the trip. they're great!

  34. My friend has panic attacks as well. Usually they're brought about by stress. I know she HATED public speaking and sometimes she would get some major panic attacks beforehand and had to go to the school nurse to calm down.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yes, I suffer from pannic attacks,or used to suffer I am not sure yet. It can be very scarry. I learned to just take deep breaths during an episode and keep telling myself that there is nothing wrong, cause really nothing ever really happens. I hope you get over your panic attacks.
    I loved the bit about you talking in your sleep :)

  36. I think it is such an inspiration to me to find someone as successful as you, who also suffers from panic attacks. Mine started when I was really quite young, my mum thought it was asthma, and I wasn't proper diagnosed with it until this year! They are absolutely terrifying and I'm really glad to see that they don't hold you back as they do so many people!
