Versatile Blogger Award

Versatile Blogger Award

Hi lovelies! As my blog is almost 6 months old (wait…what?!) I thought I would share with you some facts so you can get to know me more, and when the wonderful Laura-Beth nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award, it was a perfect opportunity!


Blogger Facts:

1). I’m a shopaholic – like to the point where I will gladly bankrupt myself for the perfect shoes, bag or item of clothing… it’s gotten to the stage where I no longer have space in my wardrobe for my shoes and my door hooks are overcrowded with coats and bags… maybe my new year’s resolution could be to appreciate what I have and not impulse buy because ‘it looked good on another blogger’… (not even sorry).

2). Houseplants have become my new obsession – I only have one small windowsill in my flat and it has become a sanctuary for all my houseplants, from tiny little succulents to an ever-growing spider plant! Even my friends and family know how much I love them and have brought me some when they visit!

3). I photograph everything – before I even became a blogger I used to photograph every little thing, not because it was ‘trendy’ to do so but because I have such an awful memory that I want to capture every little detail so that I always have my photos to go back to and remember!

4). When I was younger I was a Digitabulist – you’re probably wondering what the hell that is and to be fair I had to google it, but it’s a term for thimble collectors! When I was around 6/7 I used to collect little porcelain thimbles. For every holiday, day trip or even holidays that other people went on I would always ask for a thimble – I was a strange child… I think I still have them at home in the loft somewhere!

5). have a fear of flying – ever since my dad moved to France 12 years ago, I have flown out to see him once a year, often entirely on my own! You’d think that I’d be used to flying but NOPE. I hate it. I like to have both feet firmly on the ground and by far the worst part is take off and landing… you will often see me clutching my seat in terror!

6). I used to be part of an Am-dram society – there are even DVDs so I can never forget the embarrassment! I did actually enjoy it and I did build up a lot of confidence, though my family never let me forget that my first role (in Jungle Book) was playing a rock. A ROCK… I mean come on!

7). My goal in life is to own a dog! – Now strangely enough when I was younger I used to be so scared of dogs, every time we visited my nan, who had a jack russell named Lucky, I would always make my mum pick me up until we left the house (sorry mum!). I now absolutely adore dogs and would get one in a heartbeat, if a). I could afford one and b). I didn’t have to leave it on its own whilst I go to uni or work. My dad actually has a gorgeous golden retriever, LOOK HOW CUTE HE WAS AS A PUPPY AND HOW CUTE HE STILL IS!!












I now nominate the following amazing bloggers:

















  1. You have to thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog!

      Awh thank you! 🙈 yeah he’s a big softie, I love him!x

  2. Alice November 26, 2017 / 4:11 pm

    I am also a shopaholic, it’s actually a huge problem hahaha as I’m a hoarder aswell so my room just keeps getting more full as time goes on… And I’m the same with photos too! I have about 12,000 photos on my phone and I try and delete as many as I can but it never happens! I got a pup for my 17th birthday and it was the best thing in the world as she is my best friend so I totally feel you with needing to have a dog, they’re the best companions!

  10. Abi Richards November 28, 2017 / 10:50 pm

    Love your photos Chessie!

    Lol I did not expect a Digitabulist to be someone who collects thimbles 😂

    Abi xx

    • everythingchessie November 29, 2017 / 12:58 pm

      Thank you! Hahah it just doesn’t sound right does it? How is that even remotely related to thimbles! 😂xx

  11. Kate November 28, 2017 / 10:53 pm

    I was the exact same about dogs! I used to be so wary of them because my cousin had this really jumpy one haha but now I’m obsessed! I’d love to own one in future 🙂 Your dad’s golden retriever is so adorable!!


    • everythingchessie December 8, 2017 / 6:41 pm

    Your dog is so cute oh my gosh. It’s also my goal in life to own a dog, we’re currently saving up to get one! I also have a thing for house plants, my window in my front room is covered!

    • everythingchessie December 8, 2017 / 6:42 pm

      Aww thank you! Ohhh good luck, I hope you get one soon! Haha, glad I’m not the only one!

  13. Chloe November 29, 2017 / 2:50 pm

    Love posts like this to get to know people better! I’ve also become obsessed with house plants recently, they are really nice touches to a room. My dream is also to get a dog 😂 we had one when I was younger but sadly she died at the age of two and now all I’m waiting for is the day I move out so I can finally get one xx

    • everythingchessie December 8, 2017 / 6:43 pm

      Awh thanks, haha glad I’m not the only one! Aww bless, yeah I hope you get one soon!xx

  14. Leslie November 30, 2017 / 4:57 am

    I am with you on the first and last one! I think we should never shop together or we would do some epic damage.

  15. Lukhi Diamond December 1, 2017 / 4:58 am

    Nice And Very useful info,your info is quite helpful to forever.
    This article important and really good the for me is.

  16. Julia December 1, 2017 / 3:42 pm

    Such a nice post! I don’t like flying either, don’t worry. I live in London and fly back home at least 3 times a year so that works out to at least 6 flights a year (one year I flew 12 times and I think that was a record). You’d think that flying more often will make you used to it but nope. Still not comfortable with it. I love houseplants as well, the problem is I cannot keep one alive no matter how hard I try! Maybe one day 😛

    Julia xx

    • everythingchessie December 8, 2017 / 6:48 pm

      Glad I’m not the only one haha! 12 times?! Wow, I don’t think I would’ve been able to manage it, well done!xx

  17. Anu December 2, 2017 / 2:20 pm

    I absolutely love dogs! I have two and seriously, I’d be the happiest person ever if I could have a job that would let me stay at home all the time and I could get like ten dogs… I really want to get a few succulents as well but I have a few specific ones in mind but haven’t been able to find them in any shop yet :)x

      Awh haha I’m so jealous! Yeah wouldn’t that be ideal?! Or a job where you could take them into work with you?!x

  18. Alicia December 2, 2017 / 8:05 pm

    Aww I’m exactly the same I would have a dog if I could! Currently saving for a dachshund because I absolutely love them, but unfortunately I have to wait until I’m done with uni. Loved this post xx

    • everythingchessie December 8, 2017 / 6:49 pm
