I can’t believe I’ve been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Thank you so much to Ruthie over at The Rolling Twenties for nominating me. I am so grateful. The blogging community, truly, is so supportive. Everyone I have spoken to has been really lovely, giving advice and just, generally, been really friendly.
Sometimes I struggle to speak to new people as I am a very shy person. There’s something comforting about speaking to people in the same situation as you.
What is the Sunshine Blogger Award?
The Sunshine Blogger Award is just a little blogger recognition from other bloggers. It gives bloggers the opportunity to support each other and find out more about others.
As with anything, there are rules for this. They are:
Thank the blogger who nominated you.
Display the Sunshine Blogger Logo on your post or blog.
List the rules.
Answer the 11 questions that are provided by the blogger who nominated you.
Nominate 11 bloggers.
Give your 11 bloggers 11 questions (they need to be different to the ones you were asked)
My answers Ruthie’s Questions
What was your inspiration to start blogging?
I started blogging to just write down my thoughts and feelings really. It was a place I could get out everything in my head. It then developed into a place to talk about products and experiences.
What authors do you love to read and who inspired you most?
I read a lot of different authors and genres, but I will have to say J K Rowling. Harry Potter was important to me growing up. It allowed me to escape and go to a world that was just so magical. She inspired me to do what I love and never give up. The amount of rejections she had for Harry Potter and the fact she kept going on, is just so inspiring.
How do you like to relax on an evening?
I like to have a nice, hot, bubble bath with a good book. Actually….just putting the kids to bed is relaxing haha.
What is your favourite blog post you have created?
That is a great question. Probably, my 25 Things That Make Me Happy post. It just got me thinking about everything good in my life and brightened my day.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
There are so many places I want to visit but Italy is coming to my mind. I’m a bit of a history lover so going to see all the monuments and buildings would be amazing. Also the food haha.
What do you want your readers to get from your blog?
I’m not sure to be honest. I tend to just write about stuff I love so, I guess, finding new products to try out and maybe find a new love of their own.
What songs can you not stop listening to?
Anything by Harry Styles! I love his music and how passionate he is about it. I think Sweet Creature is my favourite one though. Also, I love The Greatest Showman soundtrack. It’s very inspirational.
What is your favourite colour?
Pink! It will always be pink haha. I love the mix of pink and grey together and, if I had my way, that it what my house would be. Pink and grey everywhere.
If you could have a superpower what would it be?
The power to wave my hand and have the house be clean. Is that a superpower? I wish it was haha. I guess speed would come under this. Then all the cleaning would be done quickly and I could just get on with the things I love.
Sugar or no sugar in your cuppa/tea?
Got to have a bit of sugar in there!
Beach holidays or adventure holidays? Where would you go?
I think a mix of both is great. For example, Italy would be amazing for an adventure style holiday, but I would want, maybe, one relaxing day at the beach to gather my thoughts.
