What a lovely birthday...

Due to a combination of internet troubles, lack of time and, of course, celebrations to organise, there is no recap post this week (and the reason I have been slack in replying to comments - will get onto this asap). Cue the violins. But on a happier note, it's my 19th birthday today (today being the 4th of June here in Australia, so technically, internationally I'm still a hell-raising 18 year old) and what better present than a blog award! And what better way to celebrate than by sharing said award.

Amazing and gorgeous LyddieGal over at Chic on the Cheap has honoured me with the Blog Love Award, and it's definitely a fun one. Thank you, sweetie.


For this, each recipient designs their award to pass on. And so as a tribute to my favourite book, Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (I wasn't overly impressed with Kubrik's film adaptation, but he did give little Lolita some very cool, and now iconic, heart-shaped sunglasses) this is the award that I managed to put together.


Passing awards on is always a difficult task, as I never have the time or space to share them with every blogger that I feel deserves the recognition. Considering this award is about blog love I am passing it on to every follower of the robins, even those who may become followers after I've published this post - you lovely people always make my day (if you visit/comment often but are not a follower - consider yourself a recipient also of course). Again, I'm not copping out, I just don't have the time or room to fit so many of you into this post. So receive and share away, gorgeous ones! I look forward to seeing your creations in due time...
