  1. Oooh! I love random facts. I also love tea. There is nothing like a mug of tea and a good book, is there?
    To answer your questions: yes I have allergies. I'm allergic to dust, grass pollen and chlorine. Which does makes things awkward when cleaning, after the grass has been cut and when swimming.
    I love your currant design, but you've had it for a while, so you might feel like a change. I personally can go hardly any time without changing mine.
    As for those 5 random facts about me: I'm the second youngest in my family. I prefer to be behind a camera than in front of it. I love reading. I sing in a choir and play the piano. My favourite musician at the moment is William Joseph.

    1. Oh, being allergic to grass would be horrible! :P I looove the smell of freshly cut grass! Yeah, I really like my design..I just don't want my readers to bored. Thanks for your random facts! What kind of songs do you play on your piano?

      Delete
    2. Mainly classical. Sometimes it stretches though to other areas.

    3. Awesome! I'd love it if you did a video of you playing a song on the piano!

  2. Hahaha! This was fun! If a bit random... ;) Aw! Thank you. :) I am glad we're friends, Julia!

    Okay, so here goes:

    1. I love books too. (And just ordered two new ones online! I'll have to tell you about them.)
    2. I love music! (I'm listening to some right now by Citizen Way - and they're amazing.) ;)
    3. I also sing frequently.
    4. I really don't like tofu. (UGH!)
    5. I like coffee - blended, iced, lattes, cappachinos - but I really don't like normal coffee that you can make yourself with a coffee pot.

    Hahaha.... That last one... ;)

    1. Oh, of course! Sorry I haven't written you back yet..been VERY busy. :P Ohhh! New books! I can't wait to hear about them. :) I've never tried tofu...what is it like? You should do a random facts post on your blog! :D

      Delete
    2. It's totally fine! I'm looking forward to telling you about them! :D Oh, tofu is gross - it has a weird taste and consistency...and... Ew! ;) Thanks for that idea! Perhaps I will! :) Oh...by the way - have you written your review for 'Where Trust Lies' yet? Did you see mine? I ended up rating it 3.5 stars.

      Delete
    3. Oh - and I am also not really allergic to anything (except maybe some fruit I had in a smoothie the other day, but I don't know what it was! :P Hahaa...), and I like the style of your blog! Where did you get the background and everything??

      Delete
    4. Yes, I did! I agreed with your rating also.. I haven't written mine up yet. I am going skiing Friday, so I'm a little busy preparing for that. I am also waiting for Bree to finish reading the book so we can talk about it a bit. :) Thanks! I gave the photos to Eve (from eveofwomanhood.blogspot.com) and told her the design I wanted. She did most of the work, while my sister helped me with the background. I didn't just want it white. :) I really like it too. :)

  3. Hey Julia! 5 random things about me, Hmm..... I also really like having ice cream in winter! Dance is basically what I do with my life, I hate mustard, I love going ice skating, and I'm not a big fashion person when it come to clothes. :) Hey! That was kind of fun. :) You could change your blog design if you want but I really like it the way it is and no I'm not allergic to anything ( At least not that I know of! )

But at least we'll all be bundled up so hopefully nobody'll look at each other with scorn. How did it go? I have to be there by 8, so, yeah, I'll probably have to get up at 6 too....but that's the time I usually get up anyways. Really? I always thought so!
