  1. Enjoyed this post))) you have a lovely blog and all photos are really beautiful) New follower)

  2. You have TINY feet! I bet shoes look adorable on you. Also, I love mumford and sons and italian food.. I just don't understand people that don't x

  3. Haha my feet are so much bigger than yours! Random question but kind of relating to how many places you've lived and the languages you speak - what kind of accent do you have when you speak English?

    Good luck with school/work/gym!

    1. I have a strange accent apparently, it's a mix of 'posh' yorkshire and tinges of a Welsh accent are creeping in. People say I sound British but just a bit odd. Might have to do a youtube video sometime? x

    2. Yes, definitely do one of those accent meme videos sometime!

  4. I've loving your blog, which I just discovered through Hellocotton (perhaps you guessed by the sudden overload of comments) and I really love this post.

    I absolutely bloody LOVE North and South. They also made a tv adaption, did you see it? If not it's on Netflix. Of course it's not as good as the book but I think they did a pretty good job.

    Also, I have a Dutch friend who drinks her tea without milk and sugar as well. Everyone I know from the UK usually has milk. Is it a European thing?

    I also remember going to The Blackout gigs when I was in my little scene kid phase. xD
    I loved them, especially the guy with the shock of platinum hair. Haha. Fangirl...
