Odd Things I Enjoy The Smell Of


I've had this post saved as a draft for way too long.

I'm not sure why I never got round to finishing this post because I thought it could be a very new and interesting idea.
I've not had a scavenge around different blogs so I'm not sure if this idea has already been done but I don't remember seeing anything like this so well done to me for coming up with something at least mildly interesting.

Moving on, the reason I came up with this idea was because I realised a few months ago that I normally prefer the smell of "Odd" things compared to normal things like perfume, now don't get me wrong, not all of these stuff are "Odd" but when I say it I just mean something that isn't typically perceived as "Gorgeous smelling" like body spray and stuff.
But enough of my rambling, here's the odd things I enjoy the smell of!

The Smell That Comes out of Exhaust Pipes
I don't have a car and I am quite thick so I have no idea what the gas that comes out of a back of a car is called but I LOVE the smell, Does anyone else because I want to know that I'm not crazy for loving the smell.
So if you see a girl with her nose shoved up the back of a car, it's probably me.

Libraries
I cannot be the only one that loves this smell, it smells so aged and rustic, does that even make sense?
I barely go to libraries anymore but when I do...
*INHALES WAY TOO HARDLY*

Sharpies
It had to make the list, I mean, come on.

Cigarettes
I don't smoke and I probably never will but I love the smell so much however I don't stand there inhaling for too long because I run the risk of passive smoking.
There is nothing wrong with smoking because people can do whatever they want.
I say this because offending people on the internet has become almost inevitable these days.

Nail Polish Remover
Some say it is too strong, I say,
"It's...perfect"

Couches
This is a big one for me,
I love the smell of couches, fabric ones and leather ones.
Maybe I'm just smelling the aroma of the house itself or maybe not but I adore the smell but don't worry, I smell the part of the couch where people put their backs.
You wont have to worry about me in your house sticking my nose in the area people put their butts.
Because lets face it, I'm weird but I'm not THAT weird...

Fire
I don't recommend getting too close to smell this one...

My Uggs
I have a pair of uggs and I enjoy the smell way to much.
Luckily they don't smell disgusting so I can inhale deeply without the fear of vomiting.

Wood
Wardrobes, shelves, tables, nightstands
I don't discriminate.
 

The After-the-Rain Smell
The scientific word is "Petrichor" which I totally... did not have to Google to find out...

To me, the smell when rain has finished falling smells wonderful, it smells so natural and earthy.
Maybe this one isn't so odd because after all, there is a name for the smell.
Oh well.
 
 
That's all I can think of for now, Let me know if you want me to do a part two of this post!
 
AND
 
 
I don't want just me doing it so I tag other bloggers to do this post too.
Go For It!
Also,I've been thinking of launching a survey because I'd be interested in knowing what you guys like and don't like about this blog, let me know if you think it would be a good idea because I have a strong feeling I will do it sometime in the future!
 
But that's all for now,
Bye! :)

The Liebster Award (x2)


I know how long I've been gone for and all I can say is:

MOCK.
EXAMS.

I have spent literally no time outside of my bedroom because I have been buried in my textbooks, that is why my posting has been very limited.
If only I could live in a perfect world where I could post regularly.
But anyways moving on...
I few weeks ago I noticed that I got nominated for two Liebster awards and I was honestly so excited when I found out because I saw people being nominated when I just started blogging and I really wanted to be nominated, I was even going to make a post about wanting to be nominated but looking back I realise how stupid it sounded but I couldn't help it, I wanted to be nominated and now I have and I think its awesome!

So I thank Zelus from My Hopeful Pencil and Dottie from Teenage Dirtbag for nominating me!



What I am going to do is answer both sets of questions that I was given by Zelus and Dottie and then I will give list the questions for those I nominate!



By the way, I just thought it would be interesting to say but as I am typing this I am currently listening to Melanie Martinez- Pity Party so forgive me if I get some of the lyrics tangled up in this post.



Zelus's Questions:


1.  If you had to live the rest of your life seeing only one colour (but with shades of that colour) what would it be?
Definitely blue, I think it's a gorgeous colour, especially teal.
2. One word that describes you?
Energetic.
3. What's your blog's total viewcount, and when was it started?
As of this moment, my total blog view count is 5401 pageviews and my blog started on Friday the 13th of March 2015
4. One thing you first notice of the opposite gender (e.g. eyes/smile), and describe what you like about that in detail ;)
Probably their hair, I like the way it moves and how poofy it is XD
5.  Earliest childhood memory?
It's probably not my 'earliest' memory but I vividly remember whenever I got to nursery I'd sit super sensibly so I could help take the tricycles out in the morning.
That sh*t was serious.
6. What's a language that you'd like to learn?
I'd love to know how to speak French, ironic because I had the chance to but I chose Spanish instead for GCSE because I found French hard.
Probably should have payed attention in class
7. What's your zodiac, and how much (/10) does the descriptions of your zodiac describe you?
Gemini and its probably a 12/10 because Geminis are known to be duplicitous and stubborn which I agree with in my case but I'm not duplicitous in a bad way, I'm two faced as in I'll have a split personality, so with my friends I'll be super crazy and excitable but I can quickly adapt to the environment I'm in if I'm with different people. That's why my not-so-close friends think I'm quiet and my best friends think I'm too loud :') and with the whole stubborn thing, I wont even disagree I'm a stubborn girl, sometimes I just cant help it but the positive things my horoscope say are, I am gentle, curious and ready for fun which is true.
HOWEVER I AM TERRIBLY INDECISIVE
8. What could you do as a child that you can't do now?
Bounce on a bouncy castle without getting super strange looks
9. What word do you love the sound of?
Cotton, I'd honestly name my future daughter that.
10. Post a photo that you feel best brings out your photography skills? (Here's a chance to subtely show off your photography skills)
Yeah, my photography skills suck and my camera sucks even more so have a raging pepe instead.
Its my aesthetic.


11. What would be your 11:11 wish now?
Probably to have a super funny boyfriend.
#singleneverreadytomingle

Dottie's Questions:

1. What would be your desert island album? (Basically if you could only listen to one album for the rest of time, what would it be?) 
Probably Nicki Minaj- Roman Reloaded
2.What is your favourite quote, and why? 
I don't know what I love this quote so much, I just really do.
3. What three people do you look up to the most, and why? 
I only really look up to my mum just because she's my hero.
I think she's inspiring and even though she's been through a lot she still wakes up with a smile on her face and continues to work hard.
4. What was the last whole album you purchased? 
I've actually never bought an album.
5. If you could see any band (ever to exist) live, what band would it be, and why? 
One direction probably? Or maybe Panic! At The Disco.
Probably because they are the only bands I actually know.
6. Coffee shop or restaurant, and why? 
Restaurant definitely, I love the atmosphere and the anticipation of waiting for my food, plus the food is always 10 times better than coffee shops.
7. Do you prefer going to the cinema, or watching movies at home? 
Cinemas, my TV is miniscule
8. What medium is best for playing music (vinyl, CD, iTunes, tape...)? 
Does YouTube count?
9. Do you have a "usual" drink in a coffee shop? 
In coffee shops such as starbucks or costa, no because I rarely visit both shops but if I'm in need of a hot drink I'll probably buy a hot chocolate from Greggs (its a bakery if you don't know) but I'd much rather prefer if they sold Peppermint tea
10. What three words would you use to describe your style? 
Fun, confused and ever-changing
11. Why did you start your blog, and how do you want it's future to be (e.g. professional, personal, etc.) ? 
I started it because I thought it'd be cool to have a place to share my stories and I wanted to connect with other people that had a blog too as well as people that were genuinely interested in what I had to say. In the future I would love for my blog to be much more "busier"
What I mean is I would love for the comments to turn into a place where everyone is talking to eachother because hey, I'm a social person myself
