Lauren (@loulabxlle, loulabellerose)

As the rules state, I am to pick one of my favourite bloggers for this award. 
At the moment, it is Lauren from 'loulabellerose' (blog linked above).

I absolutely love reading her posts, she is one of the kindest, prettiest and most talented people I follow. Her photography is amazing, her and her partner are relationship goals, and her posts are so well written and interesting to read! She's also Scottish (so she has a pretty cool accent) and one of her hobbies is 'eating anything and everything that gets put in front of me', which I'm sure we can all agree we all do. At least I can.

I definitely suggest checking her out if you haven't!

Ten facts about me

  • I have double jointed elbows
  • I don't have a middle name
  • Dogs are my favourite thing
  • I have a black mini cooper, and it's the cutest
  • My favourite TV shows are: Grey's Anatomy, GOT, One Tree Hill and FRIENDS.
  • I am a planning engineer, I work for a company that finishes parts for planes (Airbus)

  • My favourite colour is grey
  • I could eat pasta, all day, every day, forever
