A big fat thank you to Simply Kirsty for nominating me to be a part of this brilliant Liebster award, you’re an amazing spirit, keep writing! x
I am a complete new born to blogging and so I had to google Liebster award. What a nice idea though. Not only does it help people find new great blogs to read but it also includes a Q&A – pretty much my favourite part of social media. I love to get to know people I otherwise wouldn’t. I think it’s sweet.
Without further delay, Simply Kirsty came up with some questions that need to be answered 🙂
- Why did you decide to start blogging?
Mostly as a coping mechanism. It helps me feel better when I have something that’s completely and solely mine, that I have complete control over. I am sure most people can relate. I also sometimes feel like I have a flow of thoughts so severe that if I just put some on paper (or some imaginary web paper) I would feel a bit relieved. Hopefully some of my future thoughts are worth sharing and might come in handy.
Basically, I needed a pensieve and blogging is the closest thing I could think of. Any adult Harry Potter fans?
2. Who are your inspirations and why?
I do not have a specific person that I get inspiration from. I do, however, find nature very inspiring and humbling. Especially space. Have you ever seen Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey? It’s amazingly done, easy to follow, and very informative.
3. If you could only pick one fashion/beauty related item for the rest of your life, what would it be?
This might be a bit of an unusual answer, but nail file. Absolutely a nail file. Just because I don’t think there is anything more annoying than having a chipped or cracked nail that catches on everything. So if it means not having any make up on in order to avoid that, I’m all for it.
4. What would you name your autobiography?
Good question. I think I would have to ponder upon this for a while before I could decide. But if I am choosing this on a whim then maybe To be Continued.
5. Where is your dream holiday destination?
It’s always Croatia. I have already been there 2 times so not sure if this still counts. One of my dearest friends is from Croatia so I always have a soft spot for it. The water is so blue and it’s so nice and warm, and calm. The culture and the architecture is so unique, so much to see and do. It’s just perfect to me.
6. What is your dream job?
This is a seriously hard question that is the biggest pain in my life at the moment. As a recent graduate this is something I am hoping to be able to answer at some point, but am very unsure at the moment. I want to do something that matters though. Not only to me, but to others. I am not set to save the world, I just want to be helpful. But I also want money haha.
7. What is your spirit animal?
An otter. They are so smart but all they care is not to float away from each other, so they hold hands. And they want to have fun, there is no other scientific reason for them to slide on their bellies down the snowy hill. I just adore them. And I am all about enjoying my life whilst trying to stay together.
I mean look at them, stacking cups and everything.
8. What is your favourite film?
Neverwas. One of my favourites, it’s quite old now. I just remember really liking it. Really did enjoy Inception as well.
9. What is your favourite fashion brand?
As long as it’s comfortable & pretty I don’t really care about the label. I care about quality, don’t get me wrong. I was just never big on names. I can answer this about make up or some gadgets, but I don’t know exactly why I have never had a preference for the clothing line/designer/brand. I might do later on, who knows. I will keep you posted 🙂
10. What is your favourite food?
My favourite food? I love food. Food is my favourite food hah.
My favourite meal is Mini Turkey Meatball Pot pies that I make. It takes a while though, so I don’t have that very often, makes it that a little bit more special when I do though.
My favourite ingredient is dill. Love myself some dill. It reminds me of freedom, summer, forest and my dog. This is all because it reminds me of home, my mom used to (still does I think) grow dill in the summer house. It just reminds me of home. And my dog that has passed now. Loved him so much, he had a great life and made mine much better too. Thumps up for pets!
11. What is one thing you love about yourself?
When I love, I looooove with all my heart and strength. It bites me in the ass sometimes but I wouldn’t trade this for anything else. Also love my sense of humour. Might not be suitable for everyone so I usually hold back a bit until people know me better. But what’s life without a good laugh?
And so it’s time for me to nominate some great bloggers that everyone should check out!
And here are the questions I would like you to answer:
- What’s your holy grail make up find?
- Favourite Youtuber?
- The mandatory, why did you decide to start a blog?
- What’s your all time favourite book?
- What’s a song that you currently play on repeat (we all do it until we’re sick of it, it’s okay)?
- If your flat/house was on fire and you still had a chance to quickly grab one item to save it from the flames, what would it be? (This is excluding anything/anyone that is breathing)
- What’s your favourite meal?
- What’s your go-to activity when you’re upset or angry?
- Where would you like to live and why?
- Tell us one embarrassing story from your life.
- What do you do when you’re not blogging?
I hope you guys enjoy answering my questions as much as I did.
