A challenge for you.

Let's start with the challenge, shall we? I have noticed a recurring theme in the blogger community. We can all see everyone else's lovely personalities. We could easily real of a list all of the fabulous things...ABOUT SOMEONE ELSE. This isn't just in blogger, but in all of women kind it seems. SO I want you to think. And tell me 3 good things about your personality - they don't have to be big things, they can be "I am sympathetic" or "I like smiling at strangers", or "I can tell when someone is down and like to help cheer them up." Whatever it is I would LOVELOVELOVE to hear it. Screw being modest! Go and and say it!

I can't set a challenge without doing it myself, so here goes:
1. I have a real passion for helping people - in small ways like helping someone with a fashion problem, or in bigger ones like helping out at a charity once in a while.
2. I like beautiful things - not superficial things like a model, but the way mothers look at there new born children, or a sun set.
3. When I really put my mind to a task, I can do it.

Your turn :) :)

Another thing I need help on: books. I ADORE reading. LOVE it. Can spend all day reading a good novel. Now I have decided that instead of buying 2 or 3 magazines a month, I can put that money towards one new book a month! So any suggests will be very much appreciated!

So, to conclude, my questions are:

1. What 3 things do you like about your personality?
2. Have you got any books you recommend?

I like this idea.
~ I like that I like making people smile in the most random and unexpected ways. I usually draw or make people things.
~ I like that I like smiling at strangers, and that I try not to let anyone take away any second of my happiness.
~ I love that I like photography, art, tea, socks, and lovely things.

Right now, I'm reading Pride, Prejudice and Zombies. It's been interesting so far.

I am; 1) I enjoy helping others or making them feel good.

2) I love to travel and see new places. I also like visiting the same place, if I like it over and over.

3) I am capable of love.

As for books I just finished FEED, its a zombie/blogger book. Really good.

Hello dear. I think this is fantastic.

1. When I do something, I put my all into it. I'm very passionate, and it shows in everything I do.

I cannot believe I can only come up with one. I don't know. I have been sitting here for 10 minutes, and that is all I can come up with. I am sorry, I feel as if I have let you down.

When I figure others out I will tell you. I promise.

First a book idea - The Post Birthday World...which is one of my favourites

And now the challenge :-)

1)I am creative and love to find new ways to make everyday experiences interesting and exciting

2)I like to make other people feel appreciated and valued - I believe everyone has so much to offer, and we all deserve acknowledgement and love

3)I enjoy laughing and making people laugh - humour is an important part of who I am...

haha your brilliant babes!

hmn books...what kind of thing do you like? 'i capture the castle' by Dodi smith is one of my alltime faourite books, you should def read haha. if you want something a little, erm trashy(haha) try 'bergdorf blondes' by plum sykes, cos you will LOVE IT! dont forget you need vogue in your life however!

this is kinda hard.cos you know what-autmatically, you kinda end up trying to think of the 'right' things, that you should be. Like i might not want to admit what i really like about myself, cs everyone will laugh, and say, 'oh god vics, soooo superficial'.which is true, not not in an unhealthy way. It's like you think there are'right answers' to these things, if that makes im super impressed about hpw people have managed to answer this.

so me-(shhhh, what i really like about me...)
1.i like my quirkyness, and that im not scared to be different. ability to make really bad fashion mistakes and love the result!
3.i'm nice.nice is such a 'nice' word.i hate that at school, in English we were never allowed to use it!

love you xxxxxxxxx
