Be true to your self. Blog about what you love, not what you think would get the most number of followers.

I'm supposed to tag people, share 11 facts about myself and do 11 questions posted by the person who nominated you, but this is all I'm doing coz I iz layzeeeeee! But seriously...I'm nominating everyone who reads this post! I'm nosy so I like to know random stuff about people. Just do the same 11 questions:)


  1. Dark Roast! Such a good choice :-) Although I'm sure there'd be some cream or sugar in there. Or maybe caramel. You're so sweet. Sweet and fiesty!

  2. Oh this is so nice to read! :) Great post! And I loooooove tiramisu too! Once, after an amazing night out with my Italian friend, we had loads of tiramisu for breakfast - heaven!
