Blogger Award

This post is long overdue! I was given this award quite some time ago now and feel really guilty I haven’t gotten around to responding!  It has just been a very hectic few months here at Philosophy and Cupcakes Head Quarters, many deadlines with my masters degree and moving (again!)
I received the Versatile Blogger and Sunshine Award by the fantastic Nicola from Nom! A previous guest blogger on this blog and a blogger of many tasty treats, a truly fantastic blog. And her round ups of her recent baking purchases inspire a certain green eyed monster!

The rules for both the awards are :
1. Thank the person who nominated you for this Award and link them back.
2. Say some 5 random facts about you.
3. Spread the joy by nominating other bloggers.
4. Convey the blogger about the nomination.
