Would you like some tea?

Last week, my blog began its 30 days of advertisement on Louise (Sprinkle of Glitter)'s blog. Louise also kindly writes a little piece on 10 of the blogs advertised, which included mine this month. What with her being a fabulous human and incredible blogger, the traffic to her posts are about 10000000x as much as mine, and thanks to this, a lot of new followers have come over into the world of Alice's Antics. If you're a returning reader, you may even have noticed I've given my blog a little 'spring clean', I'm hoping having a sun on my page will encourage the real sun to come out a bit more.... Anyway, I wanted this post to say a big welcome to everyone new! If I could offer you all a spot of tea and a custard cream (biscuit of the Gods) then I would. In fact, go and get yourself a cuppa before continuing to read the rest of this post. Or maybe something stronger. Who knows.
I am always partial to a spot of tea
I thought I'd do a little re-introduction post, because back when I started this blog and did my first ever 'HI I'M ALICE!' in September, I had a solid 3 followers. And although there is the obligatory 'About Alice' page, it's all a bit same old same old. So I thought I would throw out some facts and information about your host for today. If you're as nosey as I am, you'll probably enjoy having a little bit of insight.....

So some facts about me, I am really very easy to please. I have a bizarre obsession with buying quirky mugs and stationary. One pay day, I bought £50 worth of Notebooks and the like... and the 1D DVD is also included in this price (woops!). I'm a self confessed book worm. If I like a good book, I will get through it in a couple of days easily, and I read absolutely anything from Jodi Picoult to Charles Dickens. Right now I'm going through a bit of a 'classics' phase, and am reading Frankenstein. When I read and watch films, I get really engrossed... to the point of embarrassment. In my everyday life, I hardly cry at all, but all it takes is a sad News report, or a Puppy advert and I will be bawling. I once went to the cinema with a fairly new 'beau' to see Monsters University, and I actually started crying at the Pixar short film before the real movie. Yup, I wish I was exaggerating. 

Me (middle) with my 2 best friends in Istanbul at the start of travelling some of Europe
My favorite food is ice cream, and if I had to choose between Leonardo DiCaprio and Ed Westwick I think I would have to split my body in two. Last year I travelled around Turkey and Greece with two of my best friends, and it was both the most incredible and emotionally draining experience of my life. Other than my human best friends, my other best friend is my dog. I actually wrote a whole blog post on him once, just to convey to people how much I adore him. I'm a bit (a lot) of an internet freak and can honestly spend hours on my laptop at one time. Stalking, commenting, reading, writing.. you name it, I do it. 

Right now, I'm in between school and university living in Italy, on what us Brits like to call a 'gap year'. They contain a lot of soul searching, a lot of harem pants, and a lot of yoga. Mine also contains a lot of dieting, tanning and searching for an Italian husband to cook me pasta and pizza at my request. 



I'd absolutely love to get to know you, so feel free to comment or mail me on the email provided in my 'Contact' page! 
And welcome (or welcome back) to Alice's Antics! I hope you feel right at home here. 

Ciao for now! x

  2. I also found you through Louise and I already love you. Both your blog and song covers on YouTube are amazing! I'm 18 from Miami so I'm getting ready to figure out my life as well but Europe is definitely in the plans. You're giving me so much inspiration. Keep it up :) xx

  4. I feel like Louise has helped us very much in finding another beautiful blog and I have got to say that there is no turning back! I absolutely love your blog and it's so great to hear from you! Your gap year sounds absolutely wonderful and I hope that is hasn't been too much stress! I'm currently in year 11 getting ready for gcses! (FUN) But I have found that reading blogs has been a good ole destresser for me! So thank you! I'm hoping that your adventures will keep me positive through these rather pressing times but IT'LL ALL BE OVER SOON!
    Take Care :)

I started my first year at college this year. I have a dog and sometimes I feel like I just want to blog about her ALL of the time! haha ((I commented on your last post but I thought I'd tell you where I was reading from and stuff okay bye )) :) xx

  9. Hey, found your blog through Louise too, and its strange how much we have in common, I was an au pair in Italy (In Cremona not too far from Parma) for my gap year and am now at uni! Its making me miss italy! Really love your blog, and the writing and if you want any northern italy reccomendations then feel free to shout (or backtrack my blog haha) - gonna read back through yours now!

  10. Hi! Similar to the other commenters I also found your blog through Louise. I tried starting my own blog this semester but my posts about going to college in Boston are a lot less exciting than posts about taking a gap year in Italy. I'm looking forward to reading your future posts--and going through older posts too!

  11. Hi! I also found you through Louises blog and I'm so glad I did! I'm also an au pair, but in London. I would love to go to Italy though, it seems really amazing :) Going to read through your blog now!

  12. Hi! I'm another that found your blog through Louise. Italy looks beautiful. I would love to visit one day. What a great place to go for a gap year! I'm going to look through your blog now :) x

  13. Hello, I'm Erin :) I live in Ontario, way far away from you in Canada, and like a lot of the other commenters on here, I found your blog through Louise! I started a blog awhile ago (although I have to admit I got really busy and it sort of fell to the wayside recently) but reading through this post, I realized I never did the classic "get to know me" post! I feel like I missed out on some sort of blogger initiation process by skipping that step - maybe I can do one now to make up for it :)

    Anyways, I'm absolutely loving your blog so far! You will most likely get other comments from me on older posts as I slowly make my way through :)
