Next up I was tagged by the fabulous Caz to do this 8 question tag!

The idea being that you have to answer 8 questions by the person that tagged you and then make up 8 of your own and tag other people to do them. Great idea as you get to learn a little more about people!

My 8 questions from Caz are...

1. What magazines do you read?
I used to buy so many magazines, but when I realised I was spending £300 a year on magazines that had to stop! So now I just buy Company and Glamour.

2. Do you have any pets?
I have a cat called Missy who lives at my Mums house with her brother Smooptz!

3. What is your biggest achievement?
For me my biggest achievement was proving all the teachers at my school wrong! I went to a school where you were constantly told that if you didn't go to university you would basically amount to nothing in life. Well I didn't go to university, but I am now in a job I love and have recently bought my first house, so I think I have done pretty well for myself!

4. If you could only wear one nail polish colour for the rest of your life what would it be?
Probably Barry M, Mushroom.

5. What are your ambitions for the future?
I want to get married, have some kiddiewinks, become better at my job and own a house with a wrap around garden!

6. What is your favourite food?
I would have to say any type of Italian food, but especially a really god Spaghetti Bolognaise!

7. Share your favourite photo from Tumblr or We♥It

How cute?!

8. What was the last song you downloaded?
Build Me Up Buttercup - Foundations. The Mr & I are currently making a playlist for our friends wedding at the weekend and this is the Brides favourite song!

My 8 questions are...

1. What is your dream job?
2. What is your favourite item of clothing?
3. Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
4. Who is your celebrity crush?
5. If you could go on holiday anywhere in the world where would you go?
6. What made you start blogging?
7. If you had unlimited funds and could splurge on one item what would it be?
8. What never fails to make you smile?

And I am tagging...

  1. Thanks for the tag, Vicki!! Love your answers, it's fab to learn more about my favourite bloggers. I knew you'd be a cat person, you have that feline elegance about you. xxx

  2. Oh my, thank you SO much for awarding me! And congrats on YOUR two awards. Also, warm brownies are the BEST :D


  3. You know I used to buy so many magazines, it was just so addictive! I would go into a shop and see a new one out and be like I really need this.
    I tend to just buy one as a treat every now and again these days.

    What a cute picture, I love cats too much.

    Thank-you for the award :)x

  4. Love the awards!

    And I think I love everything on the ten things you love. :)


  5. Awh that picture is adorable!
    & you can't beat warm chocolate brownies :) yum

  6. Ooh thanks for the tag. However I've already had that award - would you mind awfully if I did the 8 question one instead? That's probably so cheeky of me to ask but I love a good set of questions!

    Fab answers by the way - who doesn't love sparkly things?!

  7. Aww, that kitty is so cute! I think it's so silly that university is just pushed on everyone when for many people it would just be a waste of time and money. I had a great experience at uni, but equally I could be doing the job I am doing now just as successfully if I hadn't gone (and I'd be a lot richer!) Good for you for proving them wrong!

  8. Fab post Vicky, really interesting. Totally with you on the warm brownies. Super cute kitty picture. And I can relate to the achievement, I'm glad you have shown them that success doesn't have to mean a university degree. x

  9. Oh, thank you! I love Italian food too. Mmmm, lasagne! x

  10. so cute!! I'm glad you are doing so well for yourself. By reading your answers I can tell you're really content in your life and that's always nice to see. PS I love how it goes from "Sparkly things" to "my job" :)

  11. Oooh, thanks for the tag. Will have a think about my answers over the w/end. Have a brilliant w/end. xx

  12. i love barry m nail polish! great post!
