I received a Backlog award!

I received a Backlog Blog Award from Phlox and Azure from Eyegraffiti! Awesome :) Thanks! It's fun to be involved in something like this, since I am quite new to the blogging community! You can read their post here.

These are the rules:

1. Thank the person you received the award from.
2. Say seven random things about yourself.
3. Pass the award to 15 other bloggers.

Read on for my 7 random things and the blogs I chose!

1) I love the smell and taste of vinegar and sometimes poor it on my plate instead of a normal sauce.

 2) I have 2 pets, my guinea pig Schnitzel and dog Sputnik. Schnitzel seems to think Sputnik is a guinea pig too and wants to snuggle, and he is not sure if he should like her or be very afraid, haha.

3) As a kid I used to collect empty bird eggs and mice/bird bones and skulls that I retrieved from owl pellets. It was part of my failed masterplan of becoming a biologist :D

4) I started skateboarding last summer along with my boyfriend who hadn't touched a board in 14 years. (*cough*midlife crisis) I am not good at it at all (I can ride circles and fail at everything else), but it's fun to spend hot summer days with friends. I have this board:

5) I got my first make-up palette to play around with from my dad when I was about 8, it was a cute red Pupa palette.

6) In my last holiday 2 years ago we visited Finland, and my next destination is Germany! This was a cool bar in Helsinki, called bar llamas.

7) I started playing pokemon soul silver this week. Even though I usually don't like gaming, I strangely like this game.

It was not as easy as I thought to come up with 7 things.. Now I want to give this award to the following bloggers, but anyone reading this that feels like doing this blog award should go ahead and tell me in the comments so I can come check it! I sometimes just don't know where to start exploring other blogs.. another reason why I am amazed that some people are actually reading mine :)



  1. Ooh! Thank you! I'll have to think about seven random things. This isn't easy!

  2. Hi, thanks for the award! Aw, I love your guinea pig, I used to have one about 10 years ago, he was such a nice pet!
