Sunshine Blogger Award

Sunshine Blogger Award


I’ve been nominated for another award! Thank you so much to Faded Rouge for nominating me, I’m very flattered. The Sunshine Blogger Award is ‘an award given to bloggers by bloggers. It is given to those who are positive and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.’ What a great idea for an award and it’s amazing to know that someone thought of me!

The rules of the award are:-

  • Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the eleven questions sent by the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate eleven blogs to receive the award and write them eleven new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or your blog.

So here we go!

Name something that makes you happy.

Um, I think when I’m blogging and taking pictures for Instagram, I feel at my happiest. I really like to think of myself as a creative person, but I’m not particularly gifted in any way, so for me to take pictures I love, create make-up looks and test things out for this blog… it helps me release some of that. Which is amazing, I’m happy I get to share it with people.

Would you rather live in the city or countryside?

Well, I currently live in the countryside (I took that photo ^^ up there) but, I have to say I think I might prefer a city. It’s kind of a pain to have the nearest Starbucks 40 minutes away and have internet speeds that date back to dial up. (First world problems, amirite?)

What’s your ultimate inspiration song?

Jeez. This is a hard one. I listen to a lot of music… You know, it’s really cheesy but I love Greatest Day by Take That. (I’m laughing at myself, I know) But it is really feel good. Take a listen.

Name 1 item on your bucket list.

I would love to go to New York City. (Yes, I’m one of those people.)

Do you prefer to write or type?

Hm. I don’t mind typing on the computer, but if I’m taking notes or making a list, I prefer to write. It helps me remember more and to be honest, I just love stationery too.

Mountains or Sea?

Sea. There’s nothing more relaxing to me than being beside the sea.

What is something you do to relieve stress?

Other than being by the sea? Netflix. A lot of it. I’m hooked on Gilmore Girls right now…

What is your happy colour?


If you visit a new place or country what is the first thing you would do?

I usually unpack, then look for somewhere good to eat my first meal!

What is one thing you cannot live without?

My phone. I’m a 21st century girl.

Who do you look up to?

I’m not really sure. There’s no one person I solely look up to. But I mainly look up to many accomplished women from media and arts, and some blogger/vloggers too.
