Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award

Home » Blogging » Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award

My lovely blogger friend, Aby from You Baby, Me Mummy has presented me with the Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award… *graciously thanks and accepts*

Where did your blog name come from?

I wanted something completely random for my blog name, so I figured, I love the colour purple, I have a weird fascination with pumpkins, so The Purple Pumpkin Blog was born!


Book or Kindle/Tablet?

Since my iPad is often in my hands, I’ll say tablet. I’ve got the Kindle app on it and several books to read too. I can’t remember the last time I sat down and actually read a book though. I used to do it on the commute to work, eons ago, or whilst sitting in the car on the school run (parked, obvs; not driving!) but again, that was eons ago now too!


What is your favourite song?

Argh, this is always the worst question as I have so many favourite songs, but if I had to listen to one song for the rest of my life and not listen to any other song it would have to be Darren Hayes’ Bloodstained Heart, which is just gorgeous. I love the melody, the lyrics, the build up and my oh my, that voice ♥ Can’t I just have all of his songs please?!


Dogs or cats? Why?

Growing up we never had pets because we lived in a pub, so never really been a pet person until I got a kitten after breaking up with my ex. She was mine and Liam’s pride and joy, and we were so sad when she was killed :( I still haven’t got over that, and for someone who never used to ‘get’ why people got upset over animals, totally gets it now. We’ve got Pumpkin now, although she prefers Steve and Liam haha – whore!


What is your favourite food?

Another one of those argh questions – I am a foodie, so there are so many favourites, but if I had to pick one that I had to eat for the rest of my life, it would be my grandmother’s macaroni pie – yummy!


Name four dream dinner party guests (dead or alive)?

Elvis, Darren Hayes, Michael Buble and Jon Bon Jovi – they can all sing to me ♥


If you could do any job, what would it be?

To be honest, I’m doing the job that I love – being a website designer and blogger! I have always been creative, so it is natural that I went into jobs like this. However, if travelling the world could be a job, then that would be it :P


Who is your blog crush?

Gosh, I love so many blogs, but one I’ve been reading forever is I Heart Organizing, an American blogger who writes about organising her gorgeous home. I dream of having an organised house, and a big huge house where I could do all of that too!


If you could go anywhere on holiday, where would you go?

Japan – it’s like the future! There is so much there I would love to see and experience- Mt Fuji, the temples, the geishas, the culture, the food, oh and there is a Disneyland there too :P I’d also love to visit all of the states in the USA.


What is the weirdest thing about you?

I have an extra tooth! It suddenly started growing when I was 16. It doesn’t get in the way, and my dentist says as long as it doesn’t cause me grief there is no need to remove it!
