The Sunshine Blogger Award

Sunday, 4 February 2018


I was very kindly nominated for The Sunshine Blogger Award by the lovely Lady Like Laura. Laura is actually a really good friend of mine who has just started her blog, so you must go and check her out. I’m so excited that she has entered the blogging world and her blog is simply stunning, I love her writing style, so I can promise you, you won’t be disappointed. 

Anyway, back to The Sunshine Blogger Award. I love tags like this as it often provides an opportunity to get to know the person behind the blog, which I love! (Maybe that’s just because I’m nosey!)

The Rules
1. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you and link back to their blog.
2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions. 
4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or in your blog. 

The questions I was asked:

1.) Where does your inspiration come from?
It sounds so cheesy, but everyone around me. I think there’s always opportunities to learn from so many different people and I take inspiration from them all. My mum is also a big source of inspiration for me, she’s the most selfless, compassionate, caring person I know and if I’m half the woman she is, I’m happy. hjhj

2.) What are your 2018 goals?
To focus on my mental health. This is something I haven’t addressed on my blog actually. Every year, I always share my goals for the year ahead on my blog, but this year I didn’t for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I’ve only set myself one, so it would have been a very short post! And secondly, because it’s quite a personal one that I haven’t spoken to many people about and I want to be able to focus on it without any external pressures.

3.) Name your 3 favourite brands
Ooo tricky! I’d have to say MAC because I love so many of their products. Urban Decay because I’m obsessed with their Naked Palettes (in case you hadn’t noticed) and The Body Shop because they sort me out with all my skincare needs. 

4.) Pineapple on pizza?
I quite like it. Controversial I know, but I love Pineapple so why not include it on a pizza?

5.) If you were an animal what would you be?
I think I’d be a monkey because I’m energetic, a quick learner and like to get up to mischief. 

6.) What’s your favourite type of blog post to write?
Probably lifestyle ones which I don’t actually do that many of as my life is pretty boring ha! I did a series a few years ago called ‘A Trip to…’ and I really enjoyed writing those posts and sharing my adventures with everyone. I should probably get back into it to be honest. 

7.) A fact about you people wouldn’t expect?
I’m always so bad at these because I don’t think I’m really interesting! I used to do Judo when I was younger and competed in gradings, achieving an orange belt. I guess those who know me might not have expected me to have competed in martial arts!

8.) Where’s your favourite place to go and why?
New York. I’ve been four times and could quite happily go back many more. I love the atmosphere there, there’s always something to do and something new to discover. I love the food and the shopping (especially Sephora, Bath & Body Works and Macy’s!)

9.) If you could change one thing about you what would it be?
I wish I wasn’t such an overthinker and a worrier. I spend ages worrying and thinking about the smallest things, when for many, they wouldn’t even think twice about it. 

10.) What’s your guilty pleasure?
Dipping chocolate into Green Tea :) Also, Corrie and Geordie Shore!

11.) One piece of advice you would give to a younger you?
Don’t worry about what other people think about you. I spent so much of my teens trying to please everyone and worrying what others thought about me and at the end of the day, the people who care about you most will accept you for who you are and those who don’t accept you, aren’t true friends so aren’t worth worrying about. 

My questions for my nominees are:
1. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
2. What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
3. Summer or Winter?
4. What encouraged you to start your blog?
5. What’s your biggest achievement?
6. Reality TV or documentaries?
7. What are your top three shops?
8. If you could only use one make up item for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
9. Sweet or savoury?
10. What’s your favourite social media platform and why?
11. If you could go back and change one thing in your life, what would it be?

My nominees are:

I hope you enjoy answering my questions, I really enjoyed writing this post!

  1. Congrats on the nomination! I really like your blog. Loved the answers you gave. My answer to question 11 would be the same, I wasted so much energy as a teenager trying to please everyone. Took me so long to figure out those were not my real friends because they didn't like the real me.
