Blogger Recognition Award

Hello lovelies,

This week I was very kindly nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by the lovely Ashli from Me, You and Benny. If you haven’t already go and check her blog out, it’s fabulous, she also has a YouTube channel too!

Firstly want to thank Ashli for nominating me, I was totally not expecting it. It was a lovely surprise

I am going to list the rules below for my nominees and so you can take part if you wish to.

•Why I started blogging•

I haven’t been blogging for very long compared to some but I have just reached my 1 year bloggiversary last month. I have a real passion for photography but didn’t know how to could showcase it to people. I loved reading other people’s blogs but didn’t think I was confident enough to create my own at the time.

After about a year I decided that it was time to be brave and step outside of my comfort zone. So I created my blog and published my first ever post. The response I got from the blogging community was amazing and it has continued to be right up to present day. Other bloggers were so supportive of my blog and really helped me to feel positive and confident about my posts!

A year down the line and I don’t have any plans for stopping just yet. I love making content and taking photos to share with all of my fellow bloggers and viewers. Blogging has really helped me with my mental health, I struggle with anxiety and blogging helps me to forget about everything else going on in my life for a while. I can write about my passions which is beauty, fashion and lifestyle I love creating makeup looks and reviewing products and I’m so happy people enjoy reading my content.

I have still got a long way to go with my blog, just yesterday I upgraded my plan to premium and now have my own domain name, it feels amazing to know I have something that’s all mine and right now I couldn’t be happier!

•2 pieces of advice for new bloggers•

1 | As I said I have not been blogging for the longest time but one piece of advise I would like to give it to not get disheartened by views or likes. Try not to focus on the numbers and remember the reason you started your blog, passion! As long as you are happy with your content I believe that’s one of the most important things.

2 | Create a twitter account for your blog and join as many blogging pages as possible. Also follow other bloggers as they will support you as long as you support them. Blogger follow trains or comment swaps are really great for getting people viewing your posts and interacting!

That’s all for today, I really hope you enjoyed reading my blogging story. I want to thank Ashli again for nominating me I am so grateful!

•THE RULES•

  1. Thank the blogger for nominating you and give the link to their blog 
  2. Write a blog post on your website showing the award
  3. Describe the story of why you started your blog
  4. Write two pieces of advice you have for new bloggers

Rules:

•Thank the person who nominated you

•Share a link back to their blog

•List seven facts about yourself

•Nominate fifteen other bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award

 

7 Facts About Me

I have been a vegetarian for 10 months now. I decided to make the change when meat started tasting funny towards the end of may last year, i did some research into the industry and after that my mind was made up. I have been completely meat free for just over 10 months now i don’t think i will ever look back. I would love to become vegan one day but don’t want to jump right into it just yet.

I love spending time with my family. To me family is the most important thing in my life, I know they will always be here for me throughout everything. I spend a lot of time with my close and extended family, we go out for dinners and take the children on fun days out, i find I’m most happy when I’m surrounded by them.

I studies childcare for two years in college. I really loved working with young children and watching them develop and turn into wonderful young people. At the moment my job isn’t childcare related but I hope to one day go back to it.

I am a really musical person. I love to learn new instruments, in the past I have learned to play the piano, keyboard, flute, and guitar. I love to sing as well, I might not be the best but having music on and sinign along is another one of my happy places.

I am battling with my anxiety. Right now I’m going through a bit of a rough patch as my anxiety has become increasing worse, writing on my blog and spending time with the people I love help to calm me down so I’m trying to do that as much as possible currently. I have had anxiety all my life but was diagnosed when I was 13 years old, it got to a point where I couldn’t even walk into my local shop without having a panic attack so I would avoid it all. So to look back on how much I have overcome it helps a lot, there’s still a lot of work to do to overcome my anxiety but i am taking it one step at a time.

My boyfriend is my biggest supporter. He helps me with everything, if I’m down he knows just how to pick me back up and make me smile. We have been together for 2 and half years and I met him when I had just started college. He is an incredible person and i’d be lost without him!

I LOVE to cook. Since becoming vegetarian I make pretty much all of my meals for myself, I love experimenting with different ingredients and flavours. I have found it is my new passion and something that takes my mind off of everything that going on around me. I love to cook for my mum as she loves trying out different veggie foods as well.

I hope you enjoyed reading a few facts about me you didn’t know before, I have loved taking part and want to thank Ashli from You me and Benny,  KC from The frugal life and Zuri from Absolutely True Confessions once more for nominating me I’m so grateful!

Sunshine Blogger Award

9945ea11-ddc3-40cf-b2dd-96a986a62658.png

 

Hello lovelies how are you all doing?

I have been nominated by the lovely Ellie Lou! You should definitely go and check out her blog it’s fab!

 

The Rules

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

 

  1. What made you start blogging?

I had really been wanting to start a blog for a while before i made one, the thing that made me start it was that i got a boost of confidence from somewhere and i decided to take advantage of it and did what i wanted to do. I had always been really nervous about starting a blog because i wasn’t sure about how it would go down and whether people what like what i was posting or even read it! luckily i realised that this community is amazing and so supportive, I’m so glad that i started my blog.

2.   What is one brand or person you would love to collab with?

To be honest i would love to work with any makeup/ beauty brands out there it would be an amazing opportunity, some of my favourites would be Makeup Revolution or The Body Shop because there products are amazing. I would love to collab with any other beauty or lifestyle bloggers, if anybody wanted to collab with me i’d definitely be up for it!

3.   What is one thing you couldn’t live without?

The one thing that i couldn’t live without would have to be my boyfriend (cheesy i know) but he is my complete rock and stands by me and supports me through everything I’ve been through which I’m so grateful for. Also my family of course because we are all really close and i know that they would do anything to help me.

4.   What advice would you give to new bloggers?

Well i am pretty new myself i have only been blogging for about two weeks but i would say don’t be afraid to start blogging if its something you want to do. I would say that you should make sure you are blogging about something you are passionate towards because otherwise you might find yourself lost about what to write next. I think social media is really important for new bloggers because it will help you to meet fellow bloggers and there is a great community online i think especially on twitter.

5.   If you could get a lifetime supply of sweets/chocolate, what pack/bar would it be?

My favourite chocolate is going to have to be kinder, its been my all time favourite for a number of years so i would have to definitely choose them! I also love sqaushies so if i could i both i would ahah.

6.   What’s your dream holiday destination?

I would love to go on holiday to the Maldives, with clear blue water and sandy beaches i also love how quiet and serene it looks i’d love to just lie on the beach and read a book in peace. It would be my number one holiday destination and i hope i will get to go there at some point in my lifetime.

7.   What’s your favourite blog post of your own so far?

As i am quite new to blogging i don’t have many posts up yet so i don’t have much to choose from but a couple of my favourites would be my Whats in my handbag and How i store my makeup because i really like the photography that i used in both of the posts.

8.   If you could have one super power, what would it be?

I think if i could have a super power i would have to choose super strength or be able to fly its really hard to choose from. It would be amazing to be able to do both but i think be able to fly across the sky would be incredible so it would have to be that.

9.   What’s a few of your favourite books?

I am currently reading Louise Pentlands ‘Wilde Like Me’ and I’m loving it. Its a really great book and i feel like its quite real, its not too far away from reality like you get with some books of its genre. Its about a Mother who has a 6 year old daughter and is divorced she’s back out looking for love as well as that she is trying to build up her career as an assistant MUA and is offered a big job… i don’t want to give anymore away so if your interested i reading go and pick it up from a library or bookshop! I also absolutely loved The Fault In Our Stars by John Green most people have probably read this book by now and i watched the movie though before i read the book so i wasn’t able to create the characters in my head for myself. Beside that the story is incredible and it did wear me down into a blubbering mess but it was a great read and i did really enjoy it. A few of my other favourite books are Hush, Hush by Becca Fizpatrick and Girl Online by Zoe Sugg. Since I’ve been at college i haven’t had much time to read but these have been my favourites for a while.

10.   If you won the lottery, what would you spend it on?

If i was to win the lottery i would deficiently go shopping first. Then i would probably book a holiday and go somewhere hot with a sandy beach. After that i would save the rest of the money!

11.   If you could give your past self one piece of advice, what would it be?

If i could give myself any advice i would probably say not to worry so much about what others and what they might think about you. You can wear and do whatever you want, if that makes you happy then you do you. Don’t fear being judged!
