The Sunshine Blogger Award

I’m back with a little extra post for you guys this week, and that’s an award post!  The lovely Ella from A Happily Ella After nominated me for this award and I am super grateful for that!  So, let’s get into the rules, questions, nominations and all that other fun stuff!



· Thank the person(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog

· Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you

·Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions


What is the one food that always makes you happy?

Chocolate always works for me without doubt; if I’m feeling sad I’ll always deviate towards some chocolate and my mood is almost instantly cured!  Also – cheese!  Cheese is an absolute favourite food of mine and although I probably eat it in amounts which are not so good for me, I’ll have it on top of or in almost anything and it ALWAYS makes me happy when food has cheese with it!

What is one thing you love about yourself?

I’m 5″7 and quite lanky, which makes me quite tall, and although my lankiness is a standing joke between me and my friends, I actually quite like it!  Sure, it makes buying clothes SO difficult because my arms and legs are unnaturally long, but I quite like being tall and lanky!

What does a perfect day look like to you?

Honestly, I really love having a day where I wake up early, maybe go on a walk to blow out the cobwebs, get loads of work done and then settle down in the evening to nice food and a good film!  I’m such a homebird and I just really enjoy spending time at home and getting stuff done.

What is your favorite thing about the blogging community?

Personally, I love how supportive everyone is!  I love chatting with everyone on twitter and in my comments; everybody is always up for a chat and will always be there to support you no matter what you’re doing, and I just love that!

What brings you joy?

My cats – every time I see them I’m instantly so happy!  They’re just too cute.

How would you describe the style of your blog in one sentence?

I’d say it’s a lifestyle and beauty themed blog, with loads of extra off-topic posts thrown in!

If you could create one change in the world, what would it be?

I’d probably make school start at 10am and finish later on at like 5pm, because I feel like EVERYONE would function better at school then and you’d have time to either sleep in (if you’re like me and sleep is the only thing that keeps you functioning!) on a morning or wake up and get some work done, being really productive!

What is your favourite thing about yourself?

This question is super similar to the one about one thing I love about myself – apart from my height, it’s probably my sense of humor!

Favourite holiday?

France 2015.  We went to the very south of France and it was so warm and SUCH a gorgeous place; I really want to visit again!

How would you describe yourself in five words?

Adaptable, funny, sarcastic, chatty, unproductive.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

People who have a really bad sense of humor – I’m always joking around and having a laugh with my friends and I really hate it when people can’t take things as a joke or plain and simply don’t understand what I’m laughing about.
