Versatile blogger award!

Hi everyone! Sorry for a lack of content for the past month, as you may, or may not know, I've been having a lot of problems with transferring my pictures from my camera to my PC, plus 2 weeks away at Luton hasn't helped. Last night I've resolved the problem for now and will be blogging 2-3 times a week again!

Thank you to the lovely Sophie for nominating me, I have linked her blog and would recommend reading/following!

Post seven interesting things about yourself

1) I am exactly 5 foot tall, you think you're short, stand next to me!!

2) I am a serious gamer, I love gaming and have gamed for as long as I can remember  Some games I like include Elder Scrolls, League Of Legends, Pokemon, GTA, Tony Hawk (well most of them), Mario, Command & Conquer, Animal crossing, Civilization, Guitar Hero, Star Wars Batllefront, this list could go on a lot longer....

3) I have been with my boyfriend Sean for over 4 and a half years, he's been with me through the really tough, he's also helped me to conquer my fear of going out without make up on, it took 4 years but he's literally changed my life! I love him so much ♥

4) I'm addicted to make up and beauty products, especially nail varnish/nail art and hand creams! But I'm also a sucker for lipsticks and palettes! 

5) I have Poly Cystic Ovaries. Knowing that I'm very likely to be infertile in the next few years really scares me, also the fact I'm 3 times more likely to get cancer then the "average" woman, scares me. When I found out I had this, I didn't take the news well at all, but I'm now on medication and hopefully I will lose some if not all the weight gain it caused me. I have accepted it, rather then see it as a curse or my bad luck, if any female has this, it becomes easier to deal with over time, but always keep in contact with your doctor to discuss your future.

6) I also suffer with depression, I have had counselling and I have been on different tablets for it for a few months now. I have had a lot to deal with, with 4 deaths in the family in 3-4 years, stress of A levels, no one understanding I was depressed, being told to "cheer up" (seriously the WORST thing you can say). Only my family and Sean know this, but I did commit suicide during my A levels, I took an overdose, I saw it as an easier option then living. At the time I was so depressed and selfish, I hate to think what I put my family and Sean through, but even that wasn't a big enough signal for me to get help. This happened 2 and a half years ago and it's only been in the past 6 months or so I've been getting help. It's something I'm still dealing/living with, I always will, but I am in a much better place and I'd love to blog about this if it's something that may help others.

7) On a cheerier note (sorry I just want to be honest with everyone ♥) I'm really looking forward to Christmas this year, I have no idea why, I won't be getting many presents, but I love snow (if we get any) and having nice food as well as spending time with family and close friends. :)

Now it's time to post who you think deserves this!

1) Lazy Little Me
