Accepting Awards (Long Post Ahead!)

Hey guys! I’ve realised how many award nominations I’ve received recently over the last few months, and I have gotten SO far behind! It’s honestly embarrassing how I’ve let myself slip to the point of having to compile EIGHT nominations for awards! I’m honestly astounded that you guys consider me deserving of these awards. My blogging family has given so much to me that all I can say is a huge THANK YOU!! ❤

You lovely people inspire me so much with your kind words each and every day. ❤

Now, onto the awards…

The Entertainer Blogger Award


I am so so happy to announce that I was nominated yesterday for yet another blogging award! This time, I was nominated by the lovely Ann for this exciting award! I love reading Ann’s posts; they are perfect for a book obsessed person like myself! Click on the link – it is so worth it! 😉

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Add these rules to your post.
  • Answer all the questions below.
  • Display the award picture in your post.
  • Nominate 12 other bloggers who are funny, inspiring and most important of all ENTERTAINING!

I’m just going to add a little note: I suggest notifying your nominees of their nomination too, as it can often take them a while to notice their nominations otherwise! 🙂

The Questions:

1. Why did you start a blog in the first place?

I started a blog because I had read some other blogs and I wanted to make my own little mark on peoples’ lives – make them laugh, share hobbies and record memories.

2. What is your favorite book?

This question is so difficult, and it changes from time to time, but I have to say:

The Statistical Probability of Love At Sight by Jennifer E Smith


It is basically about Hadley, this American girl who misses her flight to England by 4 minutes. On the flight she gets transferred to, there is a British boy of a similar age, and it discusses their blossoming friendship/romance. What I liked about this book is that although there was an element of ‘insta-love,’ Smith did not make it seem this way. Another thing I liked was how the focus was not just on them, but on their relationships with their family members and about all the complications family life can bring.

It is such a sweet and easy read; a real pick-me-up! Let me know in the comments if you want a full-length review on the book! 🙂

3. What do you dislike the most?

Probably arrogant people, or people who think too highly of themselves, and not enough of others. There is a difference between having a good self-esteem and being downright vain!

4. What is your favorite food from the mall?

Either Cinnabons or Strawberry Cheesecake ice-cream! They are so delicious, but I haven’t had either in so long 😦

5. What is your favourite past time?

Probably writing/editing blog posts or reading other’s blog posts – I enjoy working hard on my content, collecting together pictures etc. I also enjoy watching YouTube, reading books and listening to music.

The Versatile Blogger Award


Wow! What a crazy weekend it has been – I have been nominated for not one, but TWO blogging awards! I’m going to start with The Versatile Blogging Award: I was nominated by the lovely Forever in Reverie – her blog is so awesome and you can tell that all her passion for her blog comes out into her writing! It is definitely worth clicking that link and checking it out! Thank you so much for the nomination! 😀

The Rules :

  • Show the award on your blog
  • Thank the person that has nominated you
  • Share 7 different facts about yourself
  • Nominate 15 blogs of your choice
  • Link your nominees and let them know about the nomination

7 facts about me:

  1. I am half Filipino, as my mum is from the Philippines. I’m also a quarter Irish, a little bit Scottish, English and Maltese.
  2. I lived in RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus for three years between 2008 and 2011. It was one of the best experiences of my life!
  3. I used to be so shy and afraid of performing to the point of feeling so sick I could not go on stage. I am now pretty much the total opposite and love performing and am quite confident. It’s something that grows with time.
  4. My favourite season is autumn, because of the cosy jumpers and slippers I can wear, the beautiful fallen leaves in the woods near my house and warm drinks.
  5. My favourite shops are HMV, Paperchase, The Works, WHSmith and Waterstone’s. I just love anything book/music/stationary related. I have too many notebooks to name!
  6. I want to be a town planner. It’s what I did for my work experience and I fell in love with it! Hopefully, once I have attended and graduated from university (in maybe 6+ years!) I will move to Ireland, Jersey or Canada! We’ll have to see! 🙂
  7. My current favourite TV programme is Our Girl. Michelle Keegan is just so  good in it, and it’s so addictive! Can’t wait for season 3! I shall be talking about it more soon, but in the meantime, you should go check it out 😉
