Sunshine Blogger Award No.3

Just over a week ago one of my blogging friends Diary of a Twenty Something nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award! This is now my third nomination for this award and oh my goodness I can’t believe how many people are actually interested in what I have to say. Thank you so much Francesca! Check out her blog especially today because it’s her birthday and she deserves some birthday followers!


The Sunshine Blogger Award is an award given by bloggers to other bloggers who are positive, inspiring, and creative.

The rules are:

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 this award, and write them 11 new questions

4.) List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog

The questions asked by Francesca:

1. What/who inspired you to start a blog? I was inspired by myself to be honest and not to toot my own horn, but I had so many ideas and experiences I wanted to share with others I just had to get it down on paper somewhere.

2. Which of your blog posts so far is your favourite and why? Obviously all my posts are worth reading (self promotion), but I have to say that Signed…Anonymous is my favourite so far because I talk about why I chose to be an anonymous blog and how it doesn’t affect my blogging interactions. If you’re an anonymous blog or are interested in knowing my reasons behind being anonymous you should give it a read and see if you can relate.

3. What have you enjoyed about blogging so far? I LOVE everyone I have come across on here and the support everyone gives each other is actually overwhelming.

4. Describe yourself in 5 words. Ambitious, Creative, Motivated, Entrepreneur, No Filter (two words, one meaning).

5. If you could change anything in the world right now, what would it be? I would change how social media has become a platform for fame and hatred. I won’t go any further.

6. Your most treasured possession and why? My grandmothers gold bracelet. I wear this every day, all day. It was given to me on my 13th birthday and I treasure it.

7. What goals have you set for yourself/your blog? I hope to reach at least 1000 followers and give each and every one of them something to aspire to and a goal to aim for.

8. What have you found difficult about blogging so far? Not a lot to be honest, I think being a blogger requires a certain amount of creative flow and you either have it or you don’t to be honest. One small thing I would say is keeping up with various nominations when I have a lot of other things going on.

9. How do you unwind after a busy or stressful day? I literally sit and do nothing in front of the TV. The brain switching off time.

10. Name something on your bucket list. I need to go to Iceland and sit in a hot spring. Random, but it has to happen.

11. Describe one of the happiest days of your life! The happiest day of my life so far was when I secured my university place. At that point I knew I was going to be doing what I love for the rest of my life and I could start a fresh forgetting the past.


Loved answering these thank you so much again Francesca!

The Sunshine Blogger Award

sunshine blogger

So yesterday I was overjoyed to receive a nomination for this award from a fellow friendly blogger. The Sunshine Blogger Award is given to those who are creative, optimistic and inspiring, while spreading sunshine to the blogging community. I would like to thank Written in the Ink Blog for nominating me for this award. You should check out their blog you wont be disappointed.

The rules:

  • Thank the Blogger who nominated you in a blog post and link back to your blog.
  • Answer the 11 Questions The Blogger asked to your blog.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post or on your blog.

So here are the questions set by my nominator:

  1. If you had to, who would you like to get marooned with? I would rather not be marooned in the first place, but if I had to then it would have to be Ryan Reynolds because hes funny and obviously great to look at.
  2. If you got a million dollars right now, what would you do with it? I would firstly refresh my wardrobe because who doesn’t love getting new clothes and shoes. Then I would buy a load of houses so I can live out my ambitions of being a successful property developer! (a bit boring I know).
  3. If you had one superpower, what would it be and why? I used to have weird dreams of being able to shoot fire from my fingers (not a clue why), but I think that would have to be it because obviously my inner self is telling me something.
  4. What is your favorite hot (like cooked) dish? I looooove mac and cheese with bacon…no question about it that’s my fave!
  5. Would you want to be a singer or a dancer? I’d rather be a dancer because it’s like doing exercise for your job so you’ll always be fit!
  6. Favorite time of the day? I like that time between midday and evening …Mevening? It’s almost the end of the day, it’s nearly chill time and you can get home and do what you want.
  7. Why did you start a blog? Like a lot of people, I was trying to actually follow through with one of my new years resolutions. Since starting my year out work placement I have been more motivated than ever to try new ambitious things so here’s one of the smaller tasks I set myself. I’ve always been a fan of bloggers and vloggers and thought I’d try it myself. I had no clue if people would be interested in what I had to say so it’s pretty cool that I’ve actually received the popularity I ave so far.
  8. If you could pick, which celebrity would you want to meet? Like I said before Ryan Reynolds is the one, no more needs to be said!
  9. Would you rather travel on boats or planes? I would rather travel in a plane…to be honest I don’t like either, but if it has to be one that’s it.
  10. Name one of your favorite words, and why? This is something I’ve never been asked before ! Off the top of my head…Flubber…think what you want.
  11. Do you have a movie that connects you to your childhood, what is it? Whenever I watch Harry Potter I think of simpler times, better times, times when I didn’t know about tax ahhaha!
