The Stylish Blogger Award!

Hot on the heels of the One Lovely Blog Award, Glamour Girl Reviews has sent Becks and the City the Stylish Blogger Award. Ta very much!

According to ancient tradition, I must now reveal five secrets about myself or my blog, so here goes...
  1. As a kid, I had a Cabbage Patch Kid named Adamina. I call Adam this sometimes now to tease him!
  2. My first kiss was under a drinking fountain with a boy name Neville when we were 6 years old. He was the class rebel, throwing a (tiny) chair at the teacher. Why are we always drawn to the bad boys?
  3. I read in the bath. A lot. Many a magazine or book has gone for an accidental swim too. This involves much swearing and thrashing around.
  4. I really dig the smell of petrol and smoke. Must have been a pyromaniac in a former life!
  5. Ghosts of my wardrobes past include a fluoro ra-ra skirt, happy pants, gum boots at school (worn in the class photo -- my mum forgot it was that day), a tartan hat and many other crimes against fashion-loving humanity.
I am now passing this award onto...
