The Versatile Blogger Award - My nominations

I was so happy this afternoon to be nominated by the lovely Girl Abroad for The Versatile Blogger Award, check out her amazing blog here. This seems like such a great way for bloggers to support each other and help promote their favourite blogs. As soon as I read that I had been nominated, I just had to join in as it is a bit of fun and nice to see people of the blogging world praising others.

If you are nominated by myself or any other blogger, this is what you have to do:-

1. Thank the person who nominated you and comment on their blog.

2. Include a link to their blog.

3. Tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

4. Select 15 blogs/bloggers that you have recently followed or follow regularly.

I have completed 1 and 2 above.

Here are 7 facts about me:-

1. I love animals, especially cats. I am sure I will end up a crazy old cat lady one day.
2. I have a Law Degree and a post-graduate diploma in law and I am currently working as a Trainee Solicitor. My dreams are slowly coming true :)
3. I live in Birmingham, England
4. During my law degree I was lucky to spend 6 weeks working in a law firm in Texas, USA and not only visited prisons, I also visited death row and interviewed inmates there.
5. I have only been blogging now for a few months but I love it and feel I am slightly addicted now.
6. I have a strange obsession with Britney Spears and would love to see her in Las Vegas.
7. My favourite film is Mary Poppins.

Now it is time to list 15 blogs/bloggers that I have recently followed or follow regularly. In no particular order:-

1. Ela BellaWorld
2. Linda Libra Loca
3.Lauren Barden
4. Pink Porcelain Doll
